Roll on Springtime!

Hello Woofers!

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

I do like it when Spring arrives, you know, all the branches with leaf buds and Hawthorn blossom. The early butterflies, the early birds coming back from Africa and other places!

It's just got to be better that the gloomy weather we see when we go out!

Blue sky but we get rained on!
We met up with a few of the lads and Holly even had a game with Bert who is in love with Holly!

There were some new sniffs on the beach which Holly identified as Goose Poo!

There is more of it over here as well!
We were discussing what goose was responsible when Eric called down the beach that the poo was from a Brant Goose!

Holly was dead impressed that he could tell that from so far away!

That was until we spotted a few Brant Geese steaming along that we realised how he knew!

Sneaky Ferret!

Here come the Brant Geese!
There was a load of cloud going overhead but it not only reflected the sunrise but it was being blown up in the air!

Of course, Old Two Legs spent a good ten minutes trying to get an 'Artistic' shot of it!

It would be alright if it wasn't raining!
 Back home it was back to our 'Day Beds' for a nice warm snooze while OTL got on with engineering the latest order.

It was just before lunchtime that he went out delivering while Holly and I had to stay at home. When he came home there was a 'Interesting Sniff' about him, he had been into the Doggy Shop, without us!

Mind you, we forgave him 'cos he went in to get some anti flea stuff for the ferrets and, while he was on his way to the checkout, he spotted some antler horns for sale. Well, chopped up antlers. Now he remembered that Hamish, Bella and Izzy liked chewing antler, so as an experiment he purchased two small bits. Mind you, he did say that the antler better had last a long time 'cos they were a fortune!

He still hasn't given us the antler yet 'cos we haven't eaten all our chicken yet but I can see us getting the antler tonight!

OTL has said that if we don't finish it, the ferrets can have a chew!

Yeah! Like are we leaving anything for those Guzzle Guts!

Eric is off to the vets tomorrow morning and providing all is OK we expect to see him back tomorrow evening, minus his 'Toys'!

Bye bye for now.

  1. Yoooooohoooo little maties down by the seaside with the goose poo. Sounds like you had some really good sniffing this morning. That little Eric is a clever lad, I just hope when he goes to the vets tomorrow he comes back with his intelligence still intact. Poor little Chap. I'll be thinking of him tomorrow and keeping my paws crossed that he doesn't get too sore. I had a nice walk this morning up to the shops to see my friend Brenda and get a cuddle, kiss and a treat. I met a new woofer in the shop but he was a bit of a grump, so I don't know if he got a treat. It hasn't been quite so cold here today but I hear the snow fairy is on her way and possibly due here on Thursday. Me and my mum are preparing to go into hibernation on Thursday and my mum is hoping that some happy post will arrive, cos if it snows we're staying in the warm. My mum saw them antlers last year but she said they are very expensive and she wasn't sure if I would break a tooth on them so she decided wot with me always being at the vets she wouldn't take the chance of me having another visit. Let me know wot you think and if you get on with them ok I might twist her round my paw and get her to try one. I bet you will have to watch out or them sneaky ferrets will be off and hiding them. Loved OTL's artistic pictures today. Have a good evening all, don't tell Eric where he's going tomorrow or he may go and hide. Enjoy any muggings tonight. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxxx

  2. That Eric is clever knowing which goose had pooed, the intelligence has gathered around his head so the vet won't get near it. How about you have a chew on the antler horn and post it to Archie to finish, it won't be so tough on his teeth and he will really appreciate it and so will his mums purse. Pictures are very artistic again, that OTL is beginning to get his act together. We are looking forward to some Spring weather, people keep telling us about this snow fairy that is threatening us at the weekend. All the mums are looking forward not to get up for school but after a couple of days they are pleading for it to go away so that their delightful kiddewinks can return to school. No pleasing some folk ha ha. Hope you have had some nice nibbles and haven't cause any problems with your teeth. xxxxxx
