Snowflake is Getting Excited!

Hello Woofers!

Us again! Daisy, Holly, Snowflake (The Good Looking One) and Mr Brambles!

What a night last night! We were rushed off our paws to get out to go baby sitting, we missed getting the blog published and I had to finish it off at one thirty this morning!

Of course, all this late night stuff and poor Old Two Legs was very late in getting up this morning. To be honest, so was I!

In fact OTL was so late he missed out on his paddle around the office on his 'Machine of Torture'!

We were also late in getting out for our walk as well and that didn't please the ferrets! Mr Brambles said it was difficult having to sit in his travelling cage with his legs crossed!

It wasn't so cold this morning and Snowflake didn't take too long to warm up and get going on the beach.

It's not so damp this morning!
Snowflake did her normal scan of the beach while Mr Brambles ran around OTL trying to get the lead wrapped around OTL's legs!

Now the sniff is this way!
Snowflake even called me over to share a sniff and for me to give an opinion of the consistency and validity of identification of a particularly rare sniff .

Well, I just happen to be the best sniffer in the house you see and I will always help out if I can!

Mmm, yes, it does have a certain edge to the top end but seems to lack any real base to build upon!
We both investigated it further and in the end decided it was just one of those Bozo Mutts that go around scent marking all over the place without paying too much attention to placement!

Oh yes! I see it's even spread all over here, no style these days and no control either!
Holly and I enjoyed a sit down on the beach while the ferrets were scampering along the 'Wall of Death' and playing on the Rocks.

It made a change to see the beach after all the early morning dogs had gone home!

Now this is peaceful at this time  of the morning!
Back home we were served up Lambs Heart, (cold), you know, we much prefer it all warm and tasty, but at least it's not Doggy Scoff, so we have to be thankful!

Snowflake is getting all wound up about the show tomorrow. She licking her paws to smooth down her fur and then she is shaking her tail so it fluffs up. Mr Brambles has been licking her ears to clear any bits of wax out. Not that there is any in there but it keeps her settled when he does the licking!

She keeps stroking her whiskers and brushing her cheeks with a little bit of Ferretone oil 'cos she says it makes her whiskers shine!

Mr B says that if he looks a bit 'Battered and Scruffy' it may add to his 'Rugged Persona' and get him more points!

With that in mind he has been working out by kicking the cushion and wrestling it all around the cage.

Then he grabs the Poo Pot and kicks that around the cage as well!

Oh! He can be so 'tough' sometimes!

OTL says he will take two cameras with him tomorrow, he's taking the Video as well as the stills camera, so that should be fun!

We got our new rain coats yesterday and dead smart we look too, the only problem we have is that we still can't find anywhere to secure the 'Daisy Cam', so it's back to the drawing board for OTL to find a way of mounting it!

We spent the morning snoozing and chatting with Snowflake and Mr B about the show and the new cage OTL got for the show. Snowflake said that she had worked out how to get out. if the top door is unlocked, and to prove it, this morning she got out, straight into OTL's arms!

She said she's working on another plan to dig a tunnel and of course Mr B is all for that idea!

The lunch time walk was rather boring, no woofers to woof at, didn't see any cats, no squirrels and all the birds were hiding in the bushes!

Dismal or Wot?
When you looked across to Sheerness it was grey and we could see some rain clouds in the distance as well!

Back home and there was a good sniff in the air. The Missus has been grinding away on some stewing steak to make 'Home Made Burgers'!

Now, judging by the sniff, it was going to be tasty!

Holly wanted to know if there was any bits left over like there is when TM makes the curry for OTL but we couldn't see any anywhere!

Never mind, we will just have to mug OTL and find out how tasty it is by eating half of his burger!

We are all going to get an early night tonight 'cos Snowflake and Mr Brambles have got to look their best tomorrow.

You know what? OTL has even trimmed his beard and made himself look all smart!

That's got to be worth a couple of points!

See you tomorrow and we will let you know how it goes, unless of course, your going to turn up and cheer us on!

Daisy, Holly Snowflake (Star!)  and Mr Brambles (Another Winner!)

Holly's in Deep Poo, for a change!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles here with you again!

This morning has been fun, well, for me anyway!

We were up early, about three thirty, and after our hourly 'House Patrol' we decided to have a snooze with Old Two Legs on his bed. I jumped up, no problems, and snuggled down next to his back, which is a good warm 'Snugly Place' to be. Holly stood down the bottom of the bed, on the floor and looked up. All she could see was darkness. Now Holly can get up on the bed but only in daylight 'cos she likes to see where she is going to land, before she jumps. To get over this 'jumping problem' she has developed a strategy, she stands at the bottom of the bed and woofs. First of all a soft 'Sorry to wake you but...' type of woof that gets louder the longer she has to wait!

In the end, OTL wakes up enough to get out of bed, walk to the bottom of the bed and pick up Miss Holly and place her on the bed so she can find her 'Snugly Place'. Holly has a favourite place and it is a race to see who gets there first, Holly or OTL!

OTL normally comes out on top 'cos he picks Holly up and pushes her over towards The Missus who is not as snugly as OTL and wriggles too much!

Still, it's better than sleeping on the floor!

The weather has not been too bad this morning, misty, a little damp but no wind. Not that it pleased Snowflake who said she would rather stay in bed than wake up on a cold wet beach!

I really don't do mornings on the beach!
 Mr Brambles just loves an early morning run and gets going on his hole digging or 'Doggy Hunting' with a relish!

First a hole, then a doggy or shall I go for a Doggy first, then a hole? Decisions, Decisions!
 Looking out to sea you can tell there was no wind, not a wave in sight, mind you, other than a couple of gulls there was nothing to see either!

Everything has gone!
 The ferrets always decide when to finish with the beach and we follow on behind or in front just far enough to be out of reach of Mr B's 'Nipping Game'

Holly and I were sniffin' the sniffs and generally wandering about. As we got close to the car, OTL called for us to go onto the lead and as I was nearest I was first on. Holly on the other hand caught a sniff on the wind and wandered off to investigate. OTL called, Holly sniffed, OTL called, Holly found the sniff, OTL shouted, Holly did her first roll, OTL bellowed 'NO', Holly did her second roll (with wriggle), OTL bellowed again 'NOOOOO! Holly did another roll with a 'Slide and Wiggle' as well!

OTL decided to put the ferrets and me in the car and come back for Holly. Off we went and after a bit Holly came bounding along the path with a big silly grin on her face!

'Wanna Sniff?' she said, 'No thanks' said I knowing she was in trouble. You could see that 'Cos OTL didn't put her on the lead but instead told her to get into the back of the car. It was when he clipped the lead on her and fixed it to a ring so she couldn't sit on the front seats that it slowly dawned on her that all may not be as well as she would have liked!

Home we went and she soon found out what OTL can do to a Sniffy Puppy!

She got washed from the tip of her nose to the last hair of her tail and everything in between!


 Holly was not a happy puppy and afterwards climbed onto the sofa and lay down on our blanket. TM took pity on her and covered her with a fleece to keep her warm!

What did I do to deserve all that washing?
 There was Lambs Heart for breakfast but it was a while before Holly ventured out from under the fleece!

By the way, we have been inundated with emails wanting to know where and what time the Ferret Show is on this Saturday. Well, Mike and Sue asked us any way!

We are pleased to tell you that it is being held at the Harrietsham Village Hall, so put ME17 1AP into your SatNav and it will take you there. Loads of parking space in the dedicated car park.

If you are showing any ferrets you can get in from 09:00hr with booking in starting at 10:30hr.

Visitors are allowed in from 11:00hr.

Judging starts at 12:00hr

The show finishes at 18:00hr

You will be pleased to know that food and soft drinks will be available for you Two Legs to buy. That way you won't have to share the ferrets kibble!

There will be a Tombola, so, loads of prizes and stuff and loads of profit for the  Harrietsham Ferret Rescue Centre!

So, that is the advertising for today, there maybe more tomorrow unless you tell me you are going to attend!

By the way, OTL has said that we are not having any more ferrets so it's no good us keep asking him!

He's no fun any more!

Lunch time came and the weather hadn't got any better, in fact the mist had really come down and you could hardly see your paw in front of your nose!

Holly said it would be a good idea if we had our new coats to wear but OTL said they would be here soon 'cos they have been posted. So that is something we are looking forward to, a warm dry chest and back!

OTL says he will be looking at fitting the 'Daisy Cam' to the front which I suppose will mean 'no swimming' while I'm wearing it!

Now, I was going to put a couple more pictures on the blog but before I had a chance we were put in the car and whisked off to do some baby sitting!

So, sorry we are late but blame it on OTL, it's his fault!


Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles!
