Squirrel Hunting Season!

Yo Woofers!

It's Daisy & Holly here again!

What a super sunny morning, we were out with Old Two Legs for our run along the Sea Wall and the sun was shining down on us, the birds were heading off to the cafe for breakfast!

Down The Cafe Lads
  For us it was great 'cos all the sniffs were all super new!

Expert Sniffin!

Holly found some ground sniffs that she had a good roll in, before OTL could stop her!

'After you with the sniff' said the Corvid!

The Corvid Family were out finding their breakfast! One even chased after Holly 'cos it thought Holly had found something to eat!


We met up with a couple of old Labrador dogs who started to tell us tales of what the Sea Wall was like when they were puppies!

When I was a puppy...!

After lunch, OTL had some deliveries to make, so we piled into the car and soon ended up at The Forest!

It was beginning to cloud over but we could still smell the squirrels and the rabbits. We spotted a couple of squirrels and were off like a streak of lightening, well, I was, Holly got distracted by a sniff and when she looked up, I was gone!

OTL was photographing some Snowdrops and he was doing it without his tripod, so not the panoramic shot, more of a dreamy close up!

Early Snowdrop
Anyway, by the time he looked up, I was good and gone.

We sort of lost contact for about fifteen minutes, I could hear him calling and whistling but there was a wire fence preventing me from getting to where he was.

The only thing I could do was to go back to the path where we normally go and hope to meet up with him. In the end, we met up, I saw him and Holly coming down the path so all was well in the end!

Holly and I started squirrel hunting around some of the big trees, Holly doing the spotting and me doing the chasing!

Getting ready for The Chase!

It was great fun and we got close to the squirrels a couple of times but they always climbed up the tree to get away and no matter how good Holly is at climbing, the squirrel was better!

If you think I'm going up there.......think again!

So back home where we found that The Missus had killed the electric cooker, well, it was around twenty years old, so OTL had to get his money out from under the bed and order another one!

We do hate to see him so upset, it's the same when he takes us to the vet, he always ends up crying when he has to spend some money!

So, tonight TM is cooking over a candle, so she says, and our dinner will be a little longer cooking than normal. OTL says that there will be more chance of getting a non burnt dinner 'cos she will have more chance of catching it before it bursts into flames!

We think OTL is pushing his luck!

See you tomorrow.
