Swimming and Lost Ferrets and Photo's!

Hi Woofers!

It's Friday and we're back again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Wot a glorious day it has been! Loads of sunshine, warm weather and loads of fun on the beach again!

It started off this morning with Miss Wendy throwing a strop and getting all upset about having her photo taken. It seems that Old Two Legs hasn't got a 'Keeper' photograph of Wendy and he wanted to get her picture, side on with a very shallow depth of field. So, when OTL stuck his camera into her face she didn't like it and just turned away and wouldn't look into the lens!

Don't Care, Don't want my picture taken, I haven't brushed my whiskers this morning!
We all said she looked great but it was no good, she wouldn't smile for the camera!

Freddy offered to have his picture taken but only if OTL would carry him back to the car, inside the ferret bag!

No way!

The idea of the morning walk is to get some exercise and sitting in a bag was not exercise!

Never mind Freddy, at least you tried!

Lunchtime May and Eric were out and we all had a good run around on the beach, which is good news as far as I'm concerned 'cos I could see the sea rushing back to shore and with a bit of luck I might even get a swim!

Miss May didn't show off about having her photo taken but she was more interested in running along the Sea Wall, so every time OTL pointed the lens in her direction, off she went at sixty miles an hour!

OK, make it good 'cos this is the only one I'm posing for!
Holly Chops was sitting on the Sea Wall puffing and blowing about the time it was taking getting a picture of an 'over sized rat'!

What she didn't know was that May had abandoned the photo shoot and was more interested in sampling bit of Woofer Leg!

Now then, I fancy a bit off the flank!
It was only the fact that OTL had hold of the ferret lead that stopped Miss May getting a nibble of a Holly Dog!

Poor Eric was laughing so much he fell over backwards and had great trouble getting back on his paws again!

I didn't mind the delay 'cos I could see the tide heading for the shore!

We arrived at the bench on the hill and OTL called me over to him, me, like a plonker, thought he wanted to check the harness or maybe give me a stroke and tell me wot a good girl I was.

No such luck, the crafty OTL clipped my lead on and walked me past the spot where I could dash off down to the beach and into the water for a good splosh about!

There are times when it just don't go right!

When we all got to the car OTL loaded Holly and I into the back of the car and popped the ferrets in as well. He unclipped their leads and set about pouring some fresh water into the drinking bowl. It was at that point Eric decided to climb over the top of May to have a last sniff out the back of the car and as he did he fell out, onto the ground!

Eric was all paws and tail and in a bit of a panic as he landed on his back and was just about to run off under the car when OTL dived down and picked Eric up in his hand, just in time!

There were too many cars and Two Legs in the car park for Eric to safely have a dash about!

Back he went into the travelling cage and off for home!

After all that excitement, we all had a snooze while OTL finished off his work on the computer!

Saturday tomorrow! No work, just fun and games!

Bye bye for now!


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


  1. Evening little maties. Well wot a lot of excitement today. Fancy Eric nearly escaping, I hope he didn't hurt himself when he fell out of the boot. Lovely pictures, shame OTL didn't take Freddy up on his offer. That Miss May might have got a bit more than she bargained for if she'd had a nibble on a Holly chops. I can imagine Holly chops having a nibble on a Miss May. Miss Wendy is getting to be a bit of a diva not posing for her photo. Well Mrs Boy took off about 40 minutes ago so she should be somewhere over the Irish sea by now. I gave her a well good licking this morning, enough to last her until she comes back again. I'm missing her already and have gone into a bit of a decline but I should think by scoff time I might be feeling a little better. I'm off to the vets in the morning to get my bum done and I'm being chauffeured in the new car or horse, whatever, I look forward to meeting it. I'll be having an early night tonight cos I've been up since 4 this morning on account of my mum going to work. Have a lovely evening all and put your paws up, shame about the dip but it seems OTL is as crafty as you Daisy. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxxx

  2. I am back again. Saving Michael's internet thingy for our next trip away so what do I read an escapee or trying to escape, that would have been awful so glad that OTL was quick and no harm done. The weather has been beautiful, chilly at times and no rain we have been outside a lot and are now worn out. Must read your three days worth so have already seen into the future! xxxxxx
