A Ball of a Day!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here with you again!

We were glad to read that Archie Babe escaped that woofer with a bad attitude!  Mind you, with his Two Legs looking after him he should be OK!

This morning it looked as though it would be a bit cooler with the clouds but when we got down to the beach we found that it was rather warm!

If the tide was in I'd be in for a swim!
 As we came off the beach Eric found a foot ball on the Sea Wall! Someone had left it on the beach and Eric had never seen a ball so big!

'ere! It don't squeak!
 Eric was having a great time, he was chasing it up the path and then down again and then up again!

Come on, on yer 'ead this time!
 It was good to see May join in the game as well! You know she was rather good at dribbling it along the path!

Miss May throwing a dummy!
We had to leave it on the path and hope that it would still be there when we come back at lunchtime.

Well, when we came back with Freddy and Wendy, the ball had gone! Freddy said he didn't mind 'cos it was quite warm and he didn't fancy running around chasing a ball. He decided that catching a few rays is a better idea!

Someone fetch me a cooling drink please!
Typical Freddy Boy! Anything for a relaxing life!

Back home The Missus ran out to the ice cream van that came 'Ding-a-Linging' down our road. She got three super ice cream cones, that is one for her, one for OTL and one for Holly and me!

It was great giving it a good lick and Holly and I got ice cream all over our muzzles!

We both had fun licking it all off!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

It's alway good to have a ferret helping you!

Yo! Woofers!

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

Now, you know just how inquisitive a ferret can be?

Did you also know that they can get into loads of trouble by being inquisitive?

Did you know just how helpful a ferret can be when they put their mind to it?

Well, today it was Eric's turn to show how he can help Old Two Legs.

It was breakfast time in our household and Holly and I were finishing off our snooze on the bed while The Missus was downstairs sorting out the washing.

OTL had got his breakfast and some Lactose Free milk for the ferrets. Little Miss May was ferreting around looking for the Ferretone and a couple of bits of chicken treats they have every morning.

OTL was attacking his bowl of Rabbit Food when he heard an unusual noise coming from under the work top.

Looking over the top of his bowl he saw...................................

Eric!
 Just what are you doing? Says OTL. As if he couldn't see what Eric was doing!

Just getting out a bit of Cat Litter for our cage!
 Then, back goes Eric into the bag and proceeds to dig out even more of the wood chippings all over the place!

Not only was Eric being very helpful but he was having a great time digging in the bag as well!

Hey! It tickles when it falls down onto my tummy!
 Miss May was on top of the worktop finishing off the chicken treats and the last lick of Ferretone!

She looked at OTL and said........ 'One Day He'll Grow Up!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

It's a Bit Cloudy today!

Hello Woofers!

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

Well, today we all woke up early but after looking at the clock we decided to go back to sleep.

Then we woke up again, late!

Mind you, it wasn't very sunny and in fact when we left for the beach it was raining!

Not the best outlook!
 It didn't last too long and before you could say 'Woofers' we were investigating the sniffs left over by the last tide!


No, I don't even fancy a swim!
 Miss May and Eric decided they would have a race along the Sea Wall and of course, Miss May won paws down!

Come on slow paws, I'm beating you!
Now, because the sun was hiding behind all the clouds, the temperature was under twenty degrees which was just right for Fred and Wendy. We had been leaving them at home 'cos they don't like it too warm but today, it was just fine!

They had a great time on the beach, both were playing 'Dig and Whizz' !

Come on, it's my turn to whizz!
 Wendy was diving nose first into the sand doing a Holly Chops nose dive which Miss Wendy just loves.

........and now I'm a Holly Chops!
One of the fun bits was when we headed back to the car, we got as far as the football field when Freddy wanted to have a game of football! Again, Old Two Legs had forgotten the ball but Freddy said we could use a bit of rabbit poo instead!

No, I'm not going to head a bit of rabbit poo and I don't care just how dry it is!
Back home Holly and I got a bowl of chicken each, it was super. We ran into the kitchen and were Nose Down, Tail Up and we didn't come up for air until we had finished it!

Now, wot has OTL got for dinner tonight?

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Sunday is for Tourists!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret back with you!

Wot a fun day it's been!

First of all The Missus was up the village hall again with her ladies  and the glue pot!

We got an early morning run on the beach and the ferrets got a chance to play 'Chase' along the Sea Wall!

Shift yer tail I'm catching you up!
The morning was spent snoozing while Old Two Legs got stuck into the chores!

Before we knew it, lunchtime had arrived and we were back down the beach again.

Being a Sunday and as it was sunny, we parked up next to the football pitch 'cos our normal car park would be full of tourists!

I noticed that the white lines had been drawn on the grass and although we didn't bring a ball with us, I reckoned we could have had a game of football!

Come on! I'll be in goal!
The sun was shining and the tide was in, so, you know happened next!

'ere, my periscope has gone wonky!
 You know you just can't have a wonky periscope when you go swimming!

 OTL had left the towel in the car so I had to make do with a dry grass to roll in and dry my back!

Daisy, get up there is someone coming!
 I don't know why Holly gets all embarrassed when I have a roll, I mean, it's so much fun!

Little Amber came trotting along as I was just finishing my roll. She woofer at OTL, so that demanded a woof from both Holly and I, I mean, no one woofs at OTL without our permission!

OK, OK, it was only a little woof!
Amber is all of nine months old, so we let her off this time!

We got taken home and OTL went off to the hall to take a picture of the ladies who had been awarded a 'Certificate of Appreciation' by the Harrietsham Ferret Rescue for the very kind donation from the 'Card 'N' Thong' they ran earlier this year!

Dead smart it looked as well and although we didn't get all the ladies in the picture they all know just how much their kindness and generosity is appreciated by all the ferrets at the rescue.

....and they even hid the Glue Pot!
Just in case you can't read the words, OTL took a close up of the 'Certificate of Appreciation'.

Dead smart or wot!
 Of course, Eric de Ferret just had to have a cuddle with Auntie Di who reckons he is the smartest ferret she has ever seen!

You can't beat a cuddle with your Favourite Ferret!
 So, that was our day and now we can look forward to a snooze on the sofa and a raw carrot to nibble!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,


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

Our Banjo Pickin' Guitar Strummin' Ferret does it again!

Hello Woofers!

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

It's been a super Saturday today, we were up early 'cos The Missus is off to the village hall to slosh the glue about and we get to have fun with Old Two Legs and the ferrets!

Now the fun started early as OTL was having breakfast in his office. While he has breakfast, he let's the ferrets loose for a small rampage before heading off for our morning walk. Now, Eric, being an inquisitive little ferret has bee getting into all sorts of trouble climbing all over the cages and on top of the metal cabinet where OTL keeps all his stuff.

Today he has hit new heights!

OTL was spooning a mouthful of rabbit food into his chops when out of the corner of his eye he spotted Eric with his back paws on the banjo and his front paws on the guitar!

He couldn't go backwards and he couldn't go forwards and as he stood there he found out that he couldn't hang on to anything and slid off the guitar and started to head towards the ground, a long way beneath him!

It was a good thing that OTL had a hand free 'cos Eric landed in it!

OTL put him back down onto the floor and the little monster climbed up the cage and then onto the banjo and stopped!

OTL managed to get this photo before 'Rescuing' him again!

Now, where did I go wrong last time?
 Down on the beach it was clear of everyone except a Two Legs who looked like he was out of breath 'cos he kept hanging onto the railings next to the steps!

Maybe he has been trying to climb over guitars as well!

Well, he hasn't moved for at least three minutes, maybe he is stuck!
 Lunchtime it got a bit cloudy but it was still warm.

Rain? Sun? Warm? Windy? Rain? Sun? Warm? Windy?Rain? Sun? Warm? Windy?
Up on the hill a load of tourists were trying to set light to the benches with their Bar-B-Q!

You can tell it's the weekend!

That's a funny sniff, sausages and molten plastic!
 OTL went off to the village hall to photograph the ladies and a super certificate they got from the Harrietsham Ferret Rescue for all the super help they have given this year.

OTL says he has some work to do and will try to get it ready to show tomorrow!

More hard work! Poor Lad!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Not the Best Friday we have had!

Hello Woofers!

It's us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Do you ever get those days when it starts off well but then sort of crash dives into the biggest pile of poo you can imagine?

Well, today it has been one!

Started off just great, we went for our walk down on the beach, dug a few holes, sniffed a few sniffs, told a ferret where to dig their own hole and the sun was shinning!

What could possibly go wrong?

'ere! This is a sniff worth saving for later on this afternoon!
 Of course, Holly Chops got so excited that she dived into the sniff and used it all up, saving none for the afternoon stroll!

I just gotta have a roll! I just can't resist it, I can't wait!
 So, there it was, a sniff to die for being used up by a Porky Woofer with no self control!

Miss May dug a couple of holes then went up to Holly to get a taste of her hole and sniff but Holly was being all 'Possesive' and told her where to go!

This is My 'Ole, so go and find your own!
Back home we had fun sun bathing in the garden while Old Two Legs was doing his jobs and doing some 'Manufacturing' for a customer who got in a panic 'cos they had run out of stuff!

Lunchtime Freddy and Miss Wendy came with us 'cos they thought that it wasn't going to be too hot.

We parked up in the car park where the football pitch is and OTL opened the back door and Holly and I flew out!

Just as we hit the ground we both got a sniff of fox poo!

Off we raced right into the middle of the football pitch where this super pile was calling to us!

OTL didn't see us start 'cos he was getting the ferrets on their leads and sorting out the ferret bag where the poo bags and camera is kept.

He scoops he ferret up and shuts the door, locks it, then he calls us!

Did we take any notice? Not blooming likely!

We rolled and wriggled and rolled and pushed each other out of the way then we rolled again and wriggled our tails in it and then working it all over our backs and shoulders and then we both dived onto it so that it was all over our tummies!

OTL gave a whistle calling us away from the fox poo, we had suddenly gone all deaf to OTL and his whistle, even when he did his big, loud, pay attention, whistle.

We were still rolling and diving and wriggling our tails off!

Well, OTL sat down on a bench with the ferret and we could see him saying something but Holly and I had both gone totally deaf!

Well, to cut a long tale a bit shorter, we finally left the poo and joined OTL at the bench but there was a problem, OTL didn't think our covering of fox poo was what he wanted to share in an enclosed car!

Back home we were going to show The Missus but we got marched straight out to the back garden where OTL got the bath out of the shed, then he got a bucket of warm water and a bottle of shampoo and a brush. I was stripped of my collar and harness and plonked into the bath tub. I got soaked with water, covered with shampoo and scrubbed all over from the tip of my tail to the top of my nose! I got squeezed and scrubbed and scrubbed again until I lost all the fox poo and sniffed like a Tart!

Then I got rinsed down and dried in one of our doggy towels then finally I got shoved into the kitchen to cool off.

Then it was Holly's turn, she got the same treatment, and you know how much she hates water!

Finally she was dried off and shoved into the kitchen to cool down as well!

It was Horrible!

Still, there is some good news. it's TM & OTL's wedding anniversary, thirty years!

OTL says that we will have a Chinese tonight, so that means we will get some Plawn Clackers and Plawns!

Well, I suppose it's not all bad.

But we did enjoy that fox poo!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

How to be extra sneeky and get someone else into trouble!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here again!

Wot a super fun day it's been and we came out on top, as normal!

Let me tell you of our adventure!

It started this morning, there we were looking forward to a run on the beach but when we got there, it was raining!

We didn't feel too happy about that, I mean, I don't mind a swim but rain drops on my tail, no thanks!

You know, I've had better walks!
 A bit later on the sun came out, just in time as well. We had visitors!

Auntie Zoe and all the family, and then there was Auntie Jane and her family, which includes three nine month old Jack Russel/Poodle cross woofers!

We have in the past referred to them as Jack Doodles!

Normally we keep well away 'cos three can be a bit of a handful!

We decided to go down to the beach to stretch our legs before lunch.

They all look like tourists!
As soon as we were out of the car we walked over to the woofers and told them that although the tide was out, their Two Legs wouldn't mind if they went for a paddle in the Medway Mud!

.....and we got permission as well, I think!
 Well, that was it, loads of shouting about staying out of the mud but that didn't mean a thing! In they went and of course sunk in up to their tummy's in squidgy mud!

Of course Holly and I sat on the beach laughing our tails off, I mean, we haven't done that in years!

What was funny was that they had to go back in the mud to keep it wet 'cos every time they came out it started to dry and they couldn't run properly!

This is getting all stiff under my tail!
What was even funnier, they came tearing up the beach and tried to wipe the mud off on OTL's back!

'ere, let's have a rub on your back!
 They were covered in mud, it was everywhere, under their tails, under their tummy's and under their chins!

A right soggy doggy!
 Megan, Finley and Ethan were playing with a bubble machine and OTL managed to snap a picture of the lights on the bubbles!

It looks like fairies!
 Ethan found a small crab under the rocks and just had to show OTL.

A Nargle Crab!
 Louie got told he was heading for a bath when he got back home and rushed off to OTL to see if he could be excused but there was no way he was getting out of that!

If I have a good shake, would that count as a bath?
 Finley, Ethan and Megan took it in turns walking the woofers back to the car while Megan walked Oscar!
Look, it's almost dry now!
 They were still trying to get out of having a bath but there was no way they were getting out of a through wash!
A brush would get it all off!
Well, when we all got home they were plonked in the bath that OTL had got for us and given a really good wash from the tip of their tail to the top of their nose!

Then they got a rub down with our doggy towels which I must admit, made them look a lot better. Of course, they sniffed like a load of tarts!

I'll bet they remember today for a long time!

All three gave OTL a licky kiss on his nose as a 'Thank You' for being gentle and not getting soap in their eyes and ears!

We are now looking forward to a good snooze on the sofa this evening!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,


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

It's Freddy Boys Birthday Today!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy (the Birthday Boy) and Eric de Ferret!

Well, what a fun day it's been, first thing this morning Freddy was first up at the cage door and got himself a big 'Birthday Dollop' of Ferretone! Then he had a cuddle with Old Two Legs and we all sang his 'Happy Birthday Song'!

We can sing it again 'cos he has just woken up, ready, after seven.

One, Seven!

Happy Birthday to Fred,
Fried eggs on your head,
A Sticky Chicken for dinner,
Happy Birthday to Fred!

We reckon he is five years old, plus or minus a bit 'cos we can't be too sure 'cos he came to us via the Harrietsham Ferret Rescue and Freddy isn't too good at counting!

No matter how old he is, he is still loved by us all, even with his big tummy!

Freddy just loves a game of chase with Wendy but his favourite game is 'Tickle Tums' which he plays with OTL!

OTL rolls him onto his back and then tickles him under his chin and all the way down to his tail. Freddy just can't stop laughing and at the same time he tries to grab OTL's finger for a 'Pretend Chew'!

Down on the beach it was all quiet 'cos we were a little early and OTL gets a chance to play with the sun rise!

Looks good enough for a swim!
 Miss May was rolling around all over the place and she dug a good sized hole!


Just what is that woofer doing?
 Holly was watching May and decided she would have a dig and a roll as well. First she made sure she wasn't anywhere near the water, well you don't want water sloshing into your well dug hole do you?
Holly Holes are the best!
 Anyone can dig holes but not everyone can get in for a swim!

There is nothing better than an early morning dip!
 Young Eric was having fun ferreting around in the grass looking for any new sniffs. He has been playing games with OTL, every time he gets out of the cage in the morning he goes on a rampage around the office and climbs all over the place, this morning OTL found him on top of the guitar hanging up in OTL's office!

No swimming for me, I look too good!
 Lunchtime Freddy really had a special run on the beach. He was allowed to do a bit of sunbathing then he got a carry up to the Sea Wall where he had a sniff before getting carried again!

On the football pitch he very gently strolled along then he got another carry up to the car where a bowl of water was waiting for him in the back of the car!

I could get used to this life style!
 OTL had to go out this afternoon so Holly and I stood by the bedroom window waiting for him to come home.

Now he is back we are off to mug him for his dinner!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy (the Birthday Boy) and Eric de Ferret.

A day for tourists!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here again!

It's been another sunny day, well most of the day was sunny but there was a little rain this morning, something to do with thunder storms over France.

As far as we are concerned, they can keep them!

The Missus has been getting all the washing done, the important stuff, like the ferret blankets and our doggy blankets that go on the sofa and the bits of chopped up towels that Old Two Legs uses to give our butt a wash when we get the 'Grumbly Tum'!

First thing this morning it looked horrid, dark grey skies and even the ducks were still hanging about!

Not exactly the brightest of starts!
 Last night it was raining and we came across a snail that had climbed up to get out of the wet grass.

It had climbed up and the wrapped it's 'Foot' around the branch and over his head, just to stop the rain from soaking his hair do!

Wot I really need is an umbrella!
 Later on the sun came out and Holly got trapped on OTL's desk, well, OTL lifted her up and plonked her on the top then did some trimming of her legs and paws 'cos OTL says that the hair was getting 'A bit 'Thick' and it needed a trim.

Ever since he has got these trimming tools he seems to want to give us a trim almost every week!

The post has brought his 'Confirmation of Booking' from the Hadlow College where he has enrolled in a course to teach him to cut our hair properly!

It contained a receipt for the money and a list of 'Useful Information', like where to park the car, where to meet the tutor, wear closed toe footwear, oh and bring a packed lunch. Then they tell you that you will get both Hairy and Wet!

As if he didn't know that!

Lunch time we were down the beach again but without the ferrets 'cos OTL says it would be too hot for them.

When we got down there, expecting to have some fun digging the ball up, what did we see?

Tourists! Loads of them taking up all the room on the Sea Wall and even on our beach!

Look, they are sitting on top of the hole!
That was it, back we headed to the car and bumped into this lot, woofing their tails off at us as if we were tourists!

Holly did one of her 'Big WOOFS' and that shut them up!

Woof off of our beach!
 The Missus had a glum face today, it seems that her favourite battery powered carpet sweeper has finally rolled over and died! There was a sort of cough, then a phutt and finally a phisssst, then nothing!

So tomorrow we are expecting a new one to arrive!

That should be fun, especially if the ferrets get hold of it!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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