It feels like Spring today!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a wonderful day it's been today!

If we ignore the fact that both Holly and I have got a 'Grumbly Tum' for something we have both eaten, today has been super!

We got down onto the beach with Wendy and Freddy and had a great time on the sand.

Both ferrets we running around digging holes while Holly and I tormented Old Two Legs by rolling on the sand and ignoring his instructions to 'Get Up'! 

Any closer and your tail is Mine!
Looking out over the river Medway was great 'cos the sun was shining and the sky was almost clear of clouds!

A real Spring Day!
Holly Chops just couldn't stop herself, sore butt or no!

Holly getting sandy!
When we got back with May and Eric, the sun was still shining down onto the beach. Eric and May were digging trenches while I got going with a couple of holes!

Everyone was rolling on the sand as well!

Of course I joined in but instead of rolling around, I went for a bit of 'Dig and Whizz' all up and down the beach and just for fun I was pushing the sand back into the ferrets trenches!

Sand? Me? No! Not Me!
Then we decided to have a contest, The Best Sand Hole' with OTL deciding on the winner!

After much deliberation he said that Miss May had the most impressive hole especially as she was a ferret with short legs!

Oi! My hole is the best!
Both Holly and I though that OTL had been 'got at' 'cos we saw May sitting on his shoulder and giving his ear a lick!

Back home OTL spent a couple of hours installing four new bird nesting boxes and he also took down two that had got past their best!

So, now there are three sparrow boxes on the shed while the one for Blue Tits has been moved to the branch of the tree in the garden.

We still have the bird box with a camera in it but being it is for sparrows, we expect they will load it up with grass and stuff and block the camera lens as they did last year!

Now, we have also seen Ratty raiding the seed fallen from the bird feeder. He or she, is still on their own so OTL has been hunting out the Rat Trap that spent the winter behind the shed!

Now we have been here before and Ratty has been too sneaky in the past and ignored the tempting food pile on the trigger plate!

Still, if we don't trap Ratty, OTL will get the camera out to get him on film!

Now this morning I was reading Izzy's comments and went all shivery and cold remembering when I had the chip dug into my shoulder! It was horrible and only made me very afraid of the vet! Still, it doesn't hurt any more but at the time...........Ouch!

So, that's it for today, The Missus is getting her stuff ready for her trip to the U.S.A. and OTL has had the first delivery of frozen meals on plastic plates!

He'll do anything to get out of the washing up!

See you all tomorrow!

  1. Evening little sandy maties down by the beach. It has been a lovely day but I've spent a lot of it guarding. Looks like you've all had a lot of fun on the beach today. I think you're right about Miss May cheating and sweet talking OTL into picking her hole as the winner. I bet you and Holly chops snuggled up close to him last night. Sorry to hear about your grumbly tums, I hope they get better quick so that you don't have to go to the vet and be stabbed. Was your micro chip as big as a plate, mine was, I remember when I had it put in, it was a very big ouch and I was only very little. I reckon OTL has got the right idea, get your scoff delivered on plastic plates then there's more time to snuggle with the woofers. I hope Mrs TM has got big suitcases, she'll need a trunk I reckon to fit everything in coming home. Have a lovely evening and see if you can persuade OTL to let you do a quality control test on his dinners, I mean you don't want him noshing on substandard scoff while Mrs TM is away. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxx

  2. What a beautiful sky it was and Michael said that Shorne CP was lovely apart from the breeze, looks like another couple of warm days to follow. Favouritism with Misss May and that hole but it was a great hole so she did well. Now these dinners on plates and then dinner plates put in with micro chips, will OTL be going to the vet daily for them to be inserted or have I misunderstood? If I am correct then the vet will need to remove the empty plate each day before inserting the new one unless they dissolve, poor OTL, how could TM do that to him? All go it seems with a Ratty and the bird box camera, it will be wonderful if you manage to get some pictures other than a load of grass and twigs, paws crossed. Have a nice evening and get rid of those grumbly tums, you don't want them. xxxxxx
