OTL has Teething Troubles!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret back again!

Wot a lot of weather we have had down here in North Kent! First it started off with a little mist followed by a bit of wind to blow it all away and then the sun was so bright you just couldn't the path ahead of you and that was just this morning!

Old Two Legs was all of a rush this morning 'cos he had an appointment with the dentist at ten thirty.

As soon as we got back from our walk Holly and I headed for the bed to catch up on the snoozing while the ferrets got their cages cleaned out. Of course, while the cleaning was going on the ferrets have the run of the house.

First up was Miss May and Eric de Ferret. Now as you know they are trying to get use to each other and their ways. Miss May still thinks she should be in charge and while they are running around it starts off with her chasing Eric and 'Donking' him on the back of his head. After a few 'Donks' he decides that she shouldn't be doing that and he then chases her to return the 'Donk'.

Miss May is a bit faster than Eric and she sets off at speed, diving in and out of the furniture and getting well ahead of Eric.

Then she stops, to let him catch up and just as it looks like he has caught her, she is off again!

All the time she is laughing her tail off or 'Dooking' as it is known.

Eric hasn't done any Dooking yet but he is making a noise that could be called a Dook, it is a sort of half a laugh!

He has only just found out how to wag his tail when hunting through the bedding and blankets that Holly and I call our bed!

Off went OTL to the dentist to have some work done on the front tooth that fell out before we went away on holiday. After a discussion with the dentist it was decided to remove the tooth root and fit a new tooth and anchor it to the tooth next door!

These dentist are right clever you know!

It was a good job  that OTL was in the dentist chair and lying horizontal when the dentist told him how much it was going to cost! It was also good that the nurse had some oxygen handy as well 'cos OTL came over all faint like!

Still, this stuff will take place over six months or so and the next visit is to remove the roots of the broken tooth!


He was back in time to take us out for the lunchtime walk and by now the wind had blown all the clouds away and it was bright sunshine!

Sunshine, a High Tide and I couldn't go swimming!
 It was almost high tide but I wasn't allowed to have a swim!

The groundsman had been out with his grass cutter and there were large areas that have been cut back which is great for the ferrets as they spent ages diving in and out of the piles of grass!

This is just great, loads of sniffs and we don't get lost! Now, where is Wendy!
Back home we found that Eric and May had been out again rampaging around the house and again chasing each other around the lounge.

OTL says that this is a good sign 'cos it means they are getting to know each other!

They have been running around in 'Game Mode' rather than in 'Beating You Up Mode' so we have high hopes for them.

The best result will be when OTL creeps into the office with his torch and finds they are cuddled up in bed together!

Claws Crossed!

See you all tomorrow.


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