My Ball has Gone!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret back again!

It has been another hot day down here in North Kent!Not as hot as yesterday but still it is one of those days when a shady spot in the garden is the best place for a woofer to be!

We started off with our morning stroll on the beach and this morning May and April came with us. May was full of beans 'cos she hasn't been out for a day or so and she had a bit of energy to burn off!

...................are we there yet?
 Little April decided to stay in the ferret bag 'cos there was no way she would be able to keep up with May!

I took a look at the sea and decided it was just too rough for any swimming today, a paddle maybe but no swimming!

I'd rather dig some holes today!
 May said she was up for a hole dig and we both started to throw some sand about!

.......then I just pat it down around the sides!
 As we headed back to the car May and I discussed the fine points of digging holes and she was saying that she could dig a tunnel if the ground was firm enough which is something I hadn't tried before.

The secret is to use your hips to pat the sides as you go!
 Back home the ferrets had a good rampage around the house while Old Two Legs did his 'Poo Shovelling' duties! When he had finished he was allowed to have a game with Wendy and Freddy.

They both enjoy having OTL turn them on their backs and tickle their tummies! Freddy always laughs his tail off and grabs OTL's finger and gives it a cheeky nibble!

Lunchtime it wasn't so hot so OTL decided that Fred and Wendy could go with Holly and me to the beach.

I was telling them about May and our hole digging fun. The tide was right out so I couldn't play 'Chase The Ball' in the water but OTL got the ball out and tossed it down the beach.

Freddy chased after it and I let him get to it first 'cos he doesn't often get to play chase on the beach!

I'll Get It, I'll Get It!
Then he ran back up the beach and gave it to OTL to throw again!

OK, back to OTL!
 This time OTL rolled it right the way down to the sea weed and rocks and Freddy raced after it!

I remember when he first came to live with us and when OTL took him out walking he just stood still, amazed at all the green and open spaces!

Now look at him!

I got it! I got it!
Finally I got to it and with Holly's help we dug a deep hole and hid it down the bottom!

We told Freddy that he could find it tomorrow when he comes back on the next walk!

OK, just press the sand down on top of it!!
When we got back to the car we all had a drink and Freddy reminded me that it was my ball I'd buried and not one of his!

I hadn't realised that!

My ball is gone!

You know the first thing I'll be doing tomorrow when I get onto the beach!

See you all tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret.
