New Kid on the Block!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake, Mr Brambles, Miss April and Miss May here!

We have been introduced today to a new woofer!

Not in our house but rather out on the Sea Wall. You see we met up with Max and Oscar and Bryn and Bailey and there, scampering about, was a little ball of fluff!

Holly spotted her first and went over for a sniff.

'Hmmmm!' says Holly 'You know, we've got ferrets bigger than you!

And what is your name little Miss?
It turns out that this is Boo and she is an Imperial Shih Tzu and she is so young she doesn't know her name yet!

Now, we know there are some small dogs around but we've never seen one this small!

And you all know that these are called 'Lion Dogs' so we just can't wait until she finds her voice and roars at us all!

Hello Boo!
After saying 'Hello' to everyone, Holly and I had a game of 'Chase' amongst the rock wall where the ferrets were playing. We stayed well away from them 'cos we didn't want to tread on them, well, they make such a noise when we tread on them and they have a habit of giving us a nip as well!

Tip Toe through the Ferrets!
We had chicken when we got home and spent time snoozing on the bed while Old Two Legs was busy 'Manufacturing'.

Lunchtime, we took May and April with us down to the beach and told them all about young Boo and how she was a Lion Dog and they should watch out 'cos Lion Dogs are fierce and have big pointy teeth!

What does a Lion sniff like?
 They hunted around for ages looking for Lion Dog sniffs but only got the normal sea side sniffs!

Not a Lion sniff to be had!
 On our way back to the car OTL spotted a sailing ship heading up stream towards London. He said it was a 'Three Master' but it was a long way away and we couldn't see any real detail. OTL took this picture but the lens was too small to show any markings.

Well, we see three masts!
When we got back home OTL looked on the Marine Traffic Web Site and found out that the ship is called 'Tenacious' and she is a 586 ton sailing ship out of Southampton and she was built in 2000 and she sails under the United Kingdom flag!

The web site shows ships position all over the world but OTL uses it to monitor what is off our own bit of shore! Have a look at

It's so exciting watching all the coming and going along the Thames and Medway!

See you tomorrow!

By the way, do you get Nargles along the Pennine Way?
