Damp Day but Fun!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles here again.

Now, who is getting fed up with all this wet stuff? That's it, put your paws up!

Same here, it seems that ever since Christmas we have been swimming every time we go out, instead of walking through the grass!

Today was no different, I'm sure our rain coats are getting worn out with all the use and cleaning they are getting!

It was raining when we all went out this morning, it was touch or go whether we took the ferrets with us but in the end they showed off so much that Old Two Legs put them in the Travel Cage and picked up Two Doggy Towels!

We knew it was going to be a damp one!

Down on the beach the ferrets got going with a hole each and Miss Snowflake was really putting her back into it!

There was so much sand being thrown up into the air that I just had to stop by for an 'Inspection'!

Not Bad, Not Bad at all!
 Mr Brambles, on hearing my comments came dashing over to have a look and said that Snowflake was making vast improvements in her hole digging technique!

Yep! I agree, Not Bad at all!
 Back in the car, it took OTL ages before he managed to get us all dry. The ferrets get a rub down with the towel first and tucked up in their cage all warm and dry. Then it was our turn, it's always good fun 'cos we get our face and nose done first, then our ears. After that it's the front legs, chest, tummy and back legs and finally our tail.

While OTL is doing all this we are jumping around 'cos when he gets to our tummy he tickles us so!

So, there is OTL, drying us with one paw while trying to hold us still with the other paw!

By the time it is all done we are dry but OTL is wetter than when he started 'cos as he is bending over his backside is sticking out from under the car tailgate, you can guess where the rain was landing!

Back home it was Lambs Heart and another rub down to get rid of the last bit of damp. OTL changed his trousers and we headed for our 'Snoozing Spot' while OTL gets on with playing about with bits of paper.

BTW, did you see Michael's blog regarding the Chinese New Year Parade? Super colourful pictures of the participants. OTL went down to see it many years ago and was seriously impressed with the colour of the dancers costumes and the animal costumes especially the Lion!

Lunch time came and we were down the Sea Wall again, Holly found a sniff of a rabbit and went tearing into the bushes to find it but in the end she got all tangled up in the nasty spiky brambles!

Can someone help me pleeeese?

After that she stayed away from the bushes and went of sniffing an old cloth the Fishermen had used to wipe there hands before eating their sandwiches 'cos they had been playing about with the worms!

Mmmmm, Worm and cheese sandwiches!
 I could feel the first drops of rain landing on my back, so a quick word with OTL and we headed back to the car!

OTL! It's Raining!
 On the way back we met up with Max and Oscar, Oscar poked his head over the side of the Sea Wall and enquired if we had 'Got Those Ferrets? Down There?' You see he is fascinated with them and can't make up his mind if he wants to sniff them or try nibbling their tails!

Can you imagine what Mr Brambles would have to say about that?

You got any ferrets down there?
 Back home OTL started to play around with the video of the ferrets fun with the egg. He will try to upload it over night but knowing him and the Broadband it may take two days!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.
