And then it Rained!

Hello Woofers!

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

Well, first of all, Miss April decided that she was going to stay in the ferret bag all the way around our walk. Except for the last twenty feet when she got out, had a wee and a poo and climbed back ready to get into the travelling cage in the car!

The rest of us had to walk, even though it was starting to rain!

Mind you, it didn't stop me from spotting a new boat, a little enclosed 'Taxi' type of boat scuttling along!

And what class of boat is it?
I had some fun with the rabbits. Holly and I rushed towards them as we normally do and the rabbits disappeared into the brambles. Holly went off sniffing the sniffs while I stood still, perfectly still, not moving still!

Not a hair is moving!
The idea is for the rabbits to think everyone had gone and it was safe for them to come out again.

Which they did!

They were a bit nervous and kept a good eye on anything that moved.

I was getting ready to do my 'High Speed Run' when Holly Chops came bounding around the brambles bushes and messed everything up!

Watch out, here comes the Lumpy One!
 That was it for today, no rabbit stew tonight!

Back home we found a Red Admiral that had found it's way into the office and was bashing it's head against the window trying to get out!

When it stopped for a breather Old Two Legs took these pictures.

OK, I give up, how do I get out of here?
 OTL, with the help of an A4 sheet of paper managed to scoop up the butterfly and put him out the open window!

OK, I'm ready to go!
Lunchtime came and it was still raining but we headed off to the beach for a run around!

You see, I had complained that we didn't have a stick I could chase and the tennis balls were just a little too big to get into my mouth!

OTL  and I had a rummage through the ferret toy box and came up with a rubber rugby ball that had lost it's squeak!

That was it, as soon as we got to the beach I was straight in after the ball!

I had to have a couple of goes to get used to the ball but in no time I was in and grabbing it like a professional!

Got It!
 The tide was right up at the high point and the waves were no more than gentle lap!

That made it easier to swim out and retrieve the ball!

Look at me! I got the ball!
 I have now made sure that OTL carries the ball in the ferret bag when we got out, I just have to make sure it is in the right bag depending on the high tide time!

This is easy!
By the time we got back to the car both ferrets were almost as wet as I was and Holly was Damp!

She was almost as wet as me and she hadn't even got into the water!

It was a good job that OTL had one of our towels in the car and we all got a good rub down before heading home!

This afternoon we all had a snooze and Holly reckons she has seen some 'Bambi Burgers' thawing out ready for OTL tonight!

Guess who is going to get a serious mugging tonight!

See you tomorrow!


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