Snowflake gets a Present!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles here again!

This morning was still as cold but the sun was out and that always makes us feel better. Old Two Legs had brought the Ferret Bag and Miss Snowflake & Mr Brambles were playing games inside the bag!

First they did the 'Are We There Yet?' Then there was the 'High Speed Eye Spy' game.

Then we heard a lot of giggling and it seems that after OTL had cut their claws yesterday, every time they stand on each other, it tickles, hence the giggling!

No, Don't, It Tickles!
As we were walking down the path to the beach young Arthur came tearing up to us looking for a game. He was so excited to see us that we sometimes wonder if he is allowed to mix with other dogs!

Of course, he loves OTL and is always running up for and ear tickle before chasing us again!

Don't mind if I 'Mark' this spot?
Down on the beach, Miss Snowflake headed down to the water and stopped, the waves were a lot bigger than yesterday and the water looked a bit colder!

She stood there for a moment or two then turned around and headed back to OTL!

Maybe not today!
 She ran up to his leg and in a flash was sitting on his lap! She is a ferret who knows where the warm places are and OTL's jacket pocket is one of them!

Here I come for a cuddle!
OTL told her she needs to take some exercise and put her back on the ground again, she wasn't too happy about that!

Mr Brambles was playing a game with Holly, what he'd do is to run from one patch of sea weed to another trying to hide from Holly. Every time he got behind a new lump he'd ask, 'Can You See Me?'

Holly looking a bit bored would answer 'Yes, I can still see you!' It didn't stop him from running to the next lump and asking 'Can You See Me?'

How about now, 'Can You See Me?'
Holly reckons there is an ulterior motive behind all the Hiding stuff. She reckons he is looking for a way to creep up on us and bite our tails without being seen!

That is one Potty Ferret!
When Holly got fed up with that game and wandered off looking for sniffs, Mr B came up to me and said he could sniff something on the wind and it was in the rocks somewhere.

Now, you know me, anything for a sniff!

The pair of us were up and down the rocks sniffing and looking but couldn't find the sniff at all, but I will admit, there was something in the air but we just couldn't pin it down!

It's got to be here somewhere!
Mind you, it's good to see that Mr B has stopped chasing us and started chasing sniffs instead, well, most of the time anyway!

Back home to a chicken breakfast and an 'After Meal Chew' that OTL says cleans out teeth, The Missus calls it our 'Pudding'!

Back up to OTL's office and we discover that there are two new balls in the ferrets toy box and they both squeak. Now one of the balls not only squeaks when you smack it with your paw but it squeaks as it is 'Breathing In' after being smacked!

Now this is great, especially as they are different sounding squeaks, the first is high and the second is lower. This drives Snowflake potty and she chases this around all over the office!

Every time she jumps on it there comes the 'Double Squeak' which drives her even more potty!

Of course, when they are back in their cage for feeding and snoozing, we have great fun smacking the ball and that has Snowflake rattling the cage door to join in the fun!

I think she is tickled pink with this new toy!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles
