It's another Busy Busy Day!

Hi Woofers!

We're back again, Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.

This morning it was just great!

We got up late, had breakfast of Ox Heart and wandered down to the Sea Wall all sort of relaxed and full and behind time!

Holly and I both tried to chase some rabbits but to be honest, we were just too full up and there was no way we were going to catch them!

By the time we got to the beach, the tide was well on it's way out and Holly, saying she was just Too Hot even walked into the rock pool to cool her paws off!

Just Cooling My Paws!
Now, that was most unusual 'cos normally Miss Holly doesn't like anything to do with water!

It was really hot down there and there wasn't a single cloud in the sky!

Just to show you what it was like, here is the sky!

It Don't Get Much Bluer Than This!
As normal, the ferrets spent so much time in the grass, ferreting about, that Holly and I just collapsed into the shade of some grass to wait for them!

They do take Soooooo Loooong!
 We were discussing just what there was for a ferret to take such a long time sniffing when we heard a big 'Hellooooooooooo Girlie's!'

It was Barney again!

As normal, his first stop was to have a tickle from Old Two Legs!

 Then he got a bit worried 'cos he spotted the ferrets in the grass and was concerned 'cos he thought they were going to pinch his ball!

So, after a quick 'Hello & A Sniff' he was off and gone!

Both the ferrets had stopped and were crouching down trying to look like nothing interesting so Barney would leave them alone.

I'm not sure who was the most scared, them or Barney!

Like, I'm not even here!
Mind you, Miss Snowflake was still playing jokes on us 'cos at one time she suddenly stuck her head up and shouted 'Rabbits!' Which had Holly and me tearing back down the path to see!

Look! Rabbits!
This afternoon the sun had gone in and the clouds had arrived, bringing some rain as well! OTL had brought his big camera and a Macro Lens plus a tripod and a remote shutter release cord and a 'Plamp' that clips onto the tripod and holds the plant still when the wind is blowing.

He was going to photograph some Soldier Beetles, but as it was raining  he left all the gear in the car and took his small camera instead!

We spotted some beetles but the wind was so high and the plants were waving so much that we don't think he would have got a reasonable shot anyway!

Hanging On Tight!
The poor beetles were not very mobile over the thistle 'cos the wind was threatening to blow them off!

I wish I was on the Ground!
Most of the day has been spent watching OTL doing stuff in the office. Now, he hasn't delivered any of it, so, tomorrow we reckon he will be off and down the town, so we're keeping a close watch on him 'cos that could mean a stop at the New Park!

Claws Crossed!

So, bye bye for now, see you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.
