Weekend is Here!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and the wonderful Freddy de Ferret are back again!

We like Fridays 'cos Old Two Legs works hard to clear up all his outstanding work so he doesn't have to worry about anything over the weekend.

It doesn't always work but today he managed to get almost all of it done, well enough not to worry too much!

This mornings run on the beach was fun, just a little colder than yesterday 'cos there was no sun but the wind had dropped and we had a right game on the beach.

May was running into the waters edge and then running back and shouting 'You Can't Catch Me!'

Just wait for the Summer when the waves are bigger and she slows down a bit!

Can't catch me!
Miss April said she would rather stay in the bag than be on a cold beach. May went and gave her a cuddle and told her she would stay with April until OTL picked her up, which he did!

I'll stay with you Sis!
 That left May enough time to join Holly and me in sniffing a block of wood that had landed on the shore!

Holly reckons it came from the old dock yard 'cos it sniffed of old tar and rats!

Well I can sniff tar but not the Rats!
May then decided that she didn't want the block on our beach 'cos it made the place look untidy, so she jumped on top of it and gave it a good telling off!

I want you off this beach on the next tide, or else!
I don't know if it was listening but a ferret can be most forceful if it wants!

Lunchtime Freddy and Wendy were having fun digging holes in the sand. Wendy is rather good at shifting sand and makes a neat, well rounded hole that I would be pleased with. Of course, you have to make allowances for her size and the size of the hole but when you consider her size, it's a pretty good hole!

and a little pat there to keep the wall up!
Freddy gets carried away with his sand holes. They sort of turn into long trenches with wobbly bits in the middle and the depth varies as well! Still, he does enjoy himself, even if he does get excited when shifting sand!

I just love starting a new hole!
 The Missus is in a good mood, the F1 racing has started and she has been watching the practice sessions. I wouldn't mind betting that she will be up at one in the morning on Sunday to watch the race!

She will be the only one up 'cos the rest of us will be fast asleep!

We were glad to see that Izzy has been digging in the veggy patch, we don't have a veggy patch here but Holly knows how to make up for that!

We have a rat that has set up house under our shed and comes out in the morning to get the seed the birds drop from the seed feeders. OTL has got the rat trap out again and is trying to get Ratty to get inside the trap so he can transport him to the 'Wild Life Field'.

Now Ratty is a bit particular on where he puts his paws and so far, no matter what OTL baits the trap with, Ratty doesn't feel interested enough to venture in the cage.

Holly on the other paw thinks it is a good game to try to get out the latest morsel and spends ages digging in and around the trap, getting her paws all covered with mud and bird seed!

TM is not too happy with Holly 'cos she then walks into the lounge leaving a mud and seed trail behind her!

The latest morsel to bait the trap is a 'Fat Ball' that the Starlings just love, so we are seeing if Ratty also likes it enough to venture into the trap!

We are off to try some mugging.

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret.
