TM the Lepidopterist!

Hi Woofers!

It's us, Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake, Mr Brambles, Miss April and Miss May here again!

Wot a hot day today! It has been so hot that we considered abandoning our walk and instead staying in the shade!

First thing this morning it was a bit cooler and we were out before it got too hot. We saw a couple of Thames Barges sail past. OTL had the 35mm lens on the camera so had to go 'Artistic' instead of 'Close Up' with a telephoto!

Red Sails in The Sun Set!
 Miss Snowflake was not in the best mood this morning and wanted to go back to bed but Old Two Legs said that she should get out for a 'Bit of Fresh Air' and promised to pick her up if she needed it. Her poo was inspected and noted that it was a little green, which means she could have an upset tummy!

On the walk she did another poo and that looked OK, according to OTL who knows about ferret poo!

I was a little sad that Snowflake didn't feel well so I got OTL to pick me up for a cuddle!

I felt better and told Snowflake that OTL does a good cuddle! A bit later Snowflake got a cuddle as well and she said it made her feel better as well!

OTL does a good cuddle!

At lunchtime it was very hot and I really missed the water! I did have a little rest on the Sea Weed, just to cool my tummy!

April and May were out and running after OTL as he walked along the path 'cos they still feel a little unsure about the Big Wide World!

OTL is teaching them that when he blows the thingy from a squeaky toy, they can get picked up for a carry!

It's working! 

How many more fences have we got to climb over!
They are put down and allowed to wander off sniffing the sniffs and then OTL blows on the Thingy and they both come scampering up to OTL and then get picked up!

Of course, it would never work with us woofers!

The ferrets said that the walk was tiring and they got thirsty. Lucky for them they found a rock pool with fresh water and were able to have a slurp!

Not only thirsty but this walking thing is wearing my legs away!
 While the ferrets were doing their 'Training' thing, Holly and I found a dead crab on the beach and we took turns in rolling in it, safe in the knowledge that OTL couldn't get to us to make us stop!

Oooooooooh! That feels better!
When we got to the sandy beach both ferrets set about digging a hole, it wasn't very big but for a ferret it was quite deep!

We are going to need ladders soon!
Holly and I said that although it deep if you were a ferret it wasn't up to a 'Woofer Hole', then we set about showing them!

Now, This is a Hole!
Back home again for a snooze but before we could get settled, The Missus told us that she had photographed a Hummingbird Hawk-moth that was feeding on the flowers, and, she had taken some photographs!

Hummingbird Hawk-moth Macroglossum stellatarum
Now, who is a clever Lepidopterist!

TM is getting ready to go off to Birmingham to do some baby sitting for the next week, so that means all us woofers will be able to have parties and eat carrots and not worry about the crumbs and the ferrets can hide our biscuits down the back of the sofa and they have told OTL they will hide some under TM's pillow!

See you all tomorrow!
