Not Enough Room!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret!

What a day it's been today!

We have had to listen to Old Two Legs singing some silly song about 'All I want for Christmas is my One Front Tooth'!

Gawd! It has bee Soooooooo Boooooring!

Another thing is I've got a sore ear, like it is all red inside and I keep wanting to scratch it!

OTL did the inspection bit, then he washed out my ear with warm water and some Cotton Buds but there was nothing to see really.

Then, thinking it may be ear mites, he dusted both ears with this Thornit powder that he uses on the ferrets when they look like they have an itch!

Now, seeing as we are supposed to be off tomorrow for two weeks OTL decided that it would be best if the vet took a look at my ear, so, after a phone call I was bundled into the big car and off we went.

I didn't like the vet poking around and even though OTL held my muzzle and wrapped his arms around me, the vet still couldn't get a good look in my ear!

They were looking for bits of grass that may have got in my ear but they couldn't see anything.

I was given some steroid type medicine to last me over the holiday and we got instructions to contact the local vet if anything got worse!

It's bad enough having your own vet poking about without inviting another to have a go!

So, clutching a bottle of pills and a large bill we left the vet to head back home and work out how to fool me into taking the pills!

You know me and pills just don't seem to go together!

Well, I took the first one, wrapped up in a bit of chicken strip so it is 1-0 to OTL!

Down on the beach I was forbidden from rolling in the sand, even thought Holly and May were having a good roll in the sea weed!

There were loads of cloud and even though the sun was up it really didn't explode onto the beach!

Not the best sunrise we've seen!
Not being allowed to have a roll we had to just enjoy the sniffs!

Hey! Save some sniffs for me!
 Lunchtime we just had to get out of the house. The Missus was showing off big time. The Articulated Truck just wasn't big enough to get all her craft stuff in and there wasn't a bigger one available!

TM is not a Happy Woofer!

On the way down on the beach we had to stop a few time 'cos the tourist just had to stop and ask questions about Fred and Wendy!

Just how many times have we got to stop!
 Luckily for us the rain held off and the clouds stayed up in the air! Looking towards Essex there were some impressive clouds floating about!

Well, they look impressive to us!
Back home we packed up the 'Holiday Cages' for the ferrets and loaded up the big car with all the stuff we need to take. So, tomorrow we will be up early and with a bit of luck OTL will be able to blag his way into the dentist good and early to get his tooth sorted before heading up to Yorkshire for our holidays!

We'll let you know what happens tomorrow but it may be a bit late 'cos it all depends on OTL!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret!


  1. Afternoon little maties. Sorry to hear about your ear Daisy, I'll keep my paws crossed that it's better soon and you don't have to go and see another vet but you will have to do your bit by taking your tablets. Now I have to take lots of tablets and I can't have them wrapped up in anything so I know how you feel but you have to keep yer tail up and do yer bit. Good luck to OTL, maybe if he tells a little porkie and say's it's hurting a bit the dentist will get him in quickly. Wot will Mrs TM do if she can't fit all her crafty stash in? How about a roof rack? But tie it down well or there'll be glitter all the way up the motorway. We heard Mrs TM's name on the telly today. Good to see you all enjoying the beach sniffs today. Them tourists are a nuisance holding up your walk and sniffs. Loved all todays pictures. Will keep an eye open for your blog tomorrow but will look on Tuesday morning if you're too late getting where you're all going. Have a safe and pleasant journey all and enjoy your holibobs, stay safe all you 4L's and TL's. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch, Mr Nipper, my mum and my boy and Mrs boy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  2. Oh goodness how unlucky for both you and OTL to need emergency appointments before your holibobs to Yorkshire. I hope your steroids help. My mum got stabbed with 2 steroids and her pain went and she can walk again so I hope the pain in your ear goes too.
    We got delayed last time we went away in our caravan too. Mum had it all ready parked outside the house when a neighbour reminds my dad that the numbers on the back of the caravan don't match the numbers on Dad's new car so he had to drive 25 miles to buy new plates!
    We're really excited about seeing you soon. Spoke our MumTL will be trying to cram the Tardis with craft stuff too. I hope we don't get glittered. She already puts bows in Bella's hair. Hope OTL gets an early appointment at the dentist so you can set off early. Safe journey to you all & see you soon. Love, wags, licks and woofs from Izzy, Hamish and Bella xxxxxxxx xx
