Ticked Off!

Hi Woofers!

McDaisy & MacHolly back with you and with a bit of luck, up to-date with the blog!

Well, we have had another exciting day here in sunny Scotland and what sun! It has been beating down since before we got up this morning!

Old Two Legs took us down the forest path and we went down a bit further, mainly 'cos I caught the sniff of a rabbit and MacHolly said she could sniff Nargles!

Hunting Nargles!
OTL was a bit further back and doing his 'Masterful' calling us to heel, fat chance!

We were running and tearing about, through the grass and the bushes and through the trees and into the holes and between the rocks and...............we got in trouble!

Luckily, OTL had forgotten to bring the lead so all he had was his voice and a handful of gravel which he threw at us to break our concentration, (on rabbits or Nargles)!

He marched us back up the hill towards the car, keeping behind us an making sure we kept going.

I was whacked out, all that running about chasing things had finally caught up with me and I wanted a carry, on OTL's shoulders, just like he did when I was a puppy.

So, I jumped up at his leg and woofed, then jumped up some more and when he knelt down I jumped straight up onto his leg and sat there, mainly because I had forgotten how to get up to his shoulder without falling off!

He took the hint and lifted me onto his shoulder where I helped out by sticking my claws into his neck, to stop me falling off!

Me, getting a carry!
A bit further on I began to feel better and OTL put me down near a puddle that is always fresh, OTL reckons it may be a spring feeding it!

We didn't care 'cos the water was super cool and we gave our paws a wash and had a slurp as well!

Cooling our paws!
Back at the caravan we had a brush and a tick hunt and would you believe it, I had eight of the little devils making free with my body!

Nasty gnawing little things!

MacHolly only had two on her this time and OTL said it was because I spent too much time in the undergrowth hunting rabbits!

When that was all over, we settled down to a snooze while OTL did some more photography of the camp site 'cos the owner had asked him to take some pictures for the new website this autumn.

A Preview of the Site.
You know what? Even The Missus sat outside in the sun watching OTL working!

It really is hard work, watching OTL work!
Tomorrow he is off to photograph the Sea Eagles again, so it looks like we will have to put up with snoozing all day.

It can really be a hard life you know!

See you tomorrow and be warned, you may get to see some more eagle pictures!

All Tickety Boo!

Hi Woofers!

It's us again, McDaisy & MacHolly!

Sorry about yesterdays post, by the time Old Two Legs got down to town, the shop had shut, so he had to upload this morning instead, naughty OTL!

What news today? Well, first of all I must tell you about MacHolly Dog. As you know, we do like investigating new sniffs and interesting piles of smelly stuff and things that lurk in the grass and brambles.

In the camp site we found a super place for sniffs and yesterday we were having a great time, 'Sniffin the Sniffs!'

Yep! You guessed it, MacHolly and me picked up a couple of Ticks!

OTL found one just beside MacHolly's nose and another on her hind leg! 'Doctor OTL' set to work and soon had the nasty little devils out and deposited down the loo!

Then it was my turn and I did not like it! I had one on my chin and another on my belly and I put up a bit of a fight! In the end OTL got them out and it started to feel better within a few minutes!

Needless to say, we got a good 'Inspection' this morning when we had our brush!

Lunchtime came and OTL rushed off to his 'Eagle Watch' at the RSPB hide and he had to pay real money to the Warden and not even a reduction for being a member, that hurt OTL!

He took his 'Show Off Lens' and even the wardens were impressed and one even asked for some of the photos of the chick so it can go onto their own blog!

You're in My Space!
 You could see just what that eagle was thinking!

Mmmm, How about Crow Pie?
OTL was going to ask how they intended paying for the photos but in the end kept his mouth shut, which was for OTL, very hard!

He said that the eagle was sitting on a branch near to the nest and she was getting Dive Bombed by a couple of Hooded Crows who reckoned that the eagle was encroaching on their space!

This is The Second Warning!
Then after a while the eagle went off to do some shopping and the baby eagle was looking out of the nest to see where Mum had gone!

Neither of the parents returned before the Warden announced that the show was over and they should all clear off!

Still, OTL got to see the Eagles and when he came back, we gave him a good licking hello and demanded a walk down the forest!

Well, he shouldn't have left us with The Missus all day!

Mind you, we did get a chance to have a quick snooze before we went out for our walk, we just can't seem to settle when he's not at home!

First good snooze of the day!
Once again, he was too late to up load this blog down at the 'Choccy Shop', so he will have an early start tomorrow!

See you tomorrow!

Sorry it's late but OTL has been De-Ticking us!
