Holly gets into trouble with OTL!

Hello Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Now you know that Holly Chops was taken to the vet to get her eyes sorted and that Old Two Legs cried all the way home? Well, this morning we all took a look at Holly's eyes and they were certainly a lot better looking than yesterday! All the redness had gone and although there was some gungy bits, there was definitely an improvement.

Now we all reckon that Holly brings it all on herself by her habit of nose diving into the sand on the beach and getting that in her eyes.

So, there we were, on the beach this morning and what did old Soppy Chops do? Yep, nose dive into the sand so she had a face full of sand all over her face and around her eyes!

OTL was not happy and told her that if she did it again she would be on the lead all the way home!

Now, the sky was rather dramatic this morning and of course, there was OTL snapping away trying to capture the drama of it all!

Now, it wasn't really as dark as the picture but he did darken it down a bit and also set the white balance to 'Cloudy' to get the effect.

Not bad for an amateur!

Dramatic!
 If you turned away from the sun you got this picture below. Now wot is strange about this photo is the grey misty bit in the middle.

Shoebury Ness sort of disappears like it is being rained on, but it didn't  look like rain.......just strange!

It's the Halloween Mist!
 Talking of Halloween, we reckon there will be more bangs tonight from those nasty whizz bangs, so OTL got the Adaptil Collar from off the shelf and wrapped it around Holly's neck last night. It seemed to help and she wasn't shaking for too long, but we did all end up in bed by eight thirty!

Now, someone, we can't remember, sent it to us about this time last year but the whizz bangs had all gone, so it was put on the shelf ready for this year. It is supposed to last about four weeks, so that should get Holly Chops through the whizz bangs, with a bit of  luck!

So, a very big thank you from us and Holly Chops for the collar and if you put your paw up we'll send you a big wet sloppy licky kiss from us all, except OTL, he doesn't do licky kisses! 

The ferrets seem not to be bothered by the bangs, they are too sleepy to bother with them!

See you tomorrow.

Luv,

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

Happy Birthday Eric de Ferret!

Hi Woofers!

The Gangs all here, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Today it is Eric's birthday...................so.............all together........after seven..........

Three........four....SEVEN!

Happy Birthday to Eric
We all think he's terrifec
His poo is pathetec
But we love him all the same!

Yaaaayyyyyyyy!

Yep, little Eric arrived here this time a year ago and as we are not sure of his exact birthday we have given him an 'Official' birthday, a bit like The Queen!

As a treat Eric got first slurp of the Ferretone this morning and he had first choice of the Chicken fillet and then he got a lift on Old Two Legs shoulder, all the way down to the travelling cage when we went out for our walk!

Mind you, he wanted a carry all the way around the morning walk!

It's My Birthday and I Deserve a Carry!
Miss May had to go and tell OTL that Eric was 'Showing Off'

Huston, We have a Problem!
 Birthday or not, there was only so much he could get away with and OTL says he was 'Pushing his Luck'!

Mind you, the sun was shining and the wind had dropped, so it wasn't that bad!

Just right for a Birthday Stroll!
 In the end he trotted along sniffing the sniffs and poking his head in the grass to see if there was any mouses or monsters he could 'Sort Out'!

We have noticed that his tail is getting very bushy and all grown up, it won't be long before he starts putting on some weight and getting as big as Freddy!

This a really posh Ferret Tail!

When we got back OTL had to take Holly to the vet to see about her eyes, Conjunctivitis, and she got pulled and poked and stuff put in her eyes and she even had a test to check on her tear ducts, (all OK) then stuff was squirted in to check for ulcers, (all OK) and finally the vet says that she had Conjunctivitis, which is wot OTL said in the first place!

Poor OTL, his wallet is all deflated and sore, a bit like Holly!

For all that he got two tubes of gunk to squirt into Holly's ear and eye!

Lunchtime we were back down the beach again and got stopped by a couple of Two Legs who thought that Fred and Wendy were Meerkats and then proceeded to ask hundreds of questions about Ferrets!

Freddy and Wendy got picked up and stroked and given back to OTL but the questions went on and on and in the end Freddy fell asleep in OTL's arms!

Loved the tale of Archie Babe being throw off the sofa! I reckon the next time Boy gets some food Archie Babe should knock it onto the floor and then it will be a race to see who gets to it first!

My money will be on Archie!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

An extra Hour in bed, spoilt by a jet powered vacuum cleaner!

Hello Woofers!

It's us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Wot a super day! A whole hour extra in bed!

Well, Holly and I got a hours snooze on top of wot we normally get. Old Two Legs wasn't so lucky.

The Missus was all agitated cos she had gone to bed early, seeing how she had spent a hard day sloshing glue around with The Cat Woman!

Now, when TM hits the sack early, that means she is up earlier the next day and if you also add that the clocks went back last night by a whole hour, there is a recipe for and exchange of opinions!

Now the exchange started around three in the morning as TM was cleaning up the 'Workshop'. Bang, Crash and the language! Just 'cos she dropped the water jar!

Then there was the crash that was made by a load of stuff that would only be picked up by the vacuum cleaner.

That's when the fight started!

Holly and kept our heads down and pretty soon it was light enough to get up.

We headed down to the beach and although the sun was up, there was loads of clouds!

Sun Beams!
 Miss May had fun chasing sniffs while Eric stayed cuddled up in OTL's arms 'cos he reckons it was just too cold to walk!

.........and another sniff over here!
 Holly and I said hello to Polly and Bo and there was a funny sniff about Bo, we think she has puppies in her tummy!

We won't know for a couple of weeks or so but we all have our claws crossed for her.

Hey! There is a crab sniff here!
Back home OTL has been busy on the computer 'cos it is 'The VAT Quarter' which is always fun, especially as it means he has to pay out money!

In the end it was all OK and he got the bits of paper telling him how much he will have to pay out and those go to the accountant to file away where he files all the paper!

Holly Chops may get a visit to the vet 'cos she had had some gungy eyes that OTL says could be Conjunctivitis, which she has had before. OTL says it's because she keeps rubbing her face on the sand and getting it in her eyes, then you get Conjunctivitis!

Trouble is, she never learns and the next time she is on the beach she goes nose diving into the sand again!

With a bit of luck it will just be some jollop that she has had before and then a week later it is cleared up!

We have had a snoozy afternoon, OTL on the computer and watching American Football on the TV, TM washing the ferrets bedding and Holly and the ferrets and I spent the afternoon fast asleep on our sleeping beds!

Now, that's the way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Lucky Holly, she is still a Grubby Puppy!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

We were up good and early this morning. The Missus made sure of that, banging and crashing about, stomping up and down the stairs as well as switching all the house lights on!

You see she had made an appointment with the doctors surgery to get stabbed with flu germs and needed the little car 'cos she had made the appointment for 09:00hr!

Soppy TM!

When she got there at 08:40hr she had to wait in a queue until nine before she was let in. Talk about 'Grumbly Old Pensioner' apparently the whole queue was grumbling, mainly because they were all 'Grumbly Old Pensioners'!

They all wanted to get in out of the cold and didn't seem to realise that the surgery opened at NINE!

Morning on the beach, the sun had got up and Holly said that we wouldn't see it again for some time 'cos the clocks go back tonight and we get an extra hour in bed!

We won't see this for some time but we will see the sunsets!
 We were having fun on the beach when a crow started to sound off claiming that the beach was his and we should clear off!

Watch it crow chops, we got ferrets and we're not afraid to use them!
 Now, Holly was threatened with a wash and haircut but the rain stayed away so Old Two Legs set about removing the 'Wild Life' bit of the garden that he let 'Go Wild' this year.

Unfortunately it went too wild and ended up creeping into the neighbours garden!

OTL set to work and soon found out that he really should get himself another pair of heavy duty gardening gloves 'cos the thorns kept on digging into him!

OTL was not happy!

Well, he finally filled two of the wheelie bins with weeds and then declared that he was too tired to do any more!

Now that was good 'cos it was gone two and we hadn't been out for our walk yet!

Down on the beach Freddy decided he really didn't want to go digging in the sand so, as soon as OTL crouched down to take a picture, Freddy sprinted along the sand and jumped onto OTL's lap saying 'Gissa Cuddle Daddy!'
I need a cuddle!
Back home we had been invaded by  Auntie Karen 'The Cat Lady' who had come to visit TM and play at sploshing the gesso all over the place.

Holly and I got a prezzie each in the form of a rather delicious chew!

Now that was a result!

OTL found Trevor the Frog in amongst the weeds and to keep him out of trouble, he let him go swimming in the pond!

Karen said she had seen a lizard on her door step and took a picture but when OTL 'enhanced' it on the computer it turned out to be a Common Newt or Smooth Newt!

It may be common but we could do with some newts in our pond!

Smooooooth Newt!
 Tonight we will be watching the F1 qualifying and then off to a looooong nights snooze, the sort that Archie Babe has mastered!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Busy doing Nothing!

Hi Woofers!

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

We sort of love Friday's you see although it is a working day, it doesn't really feel like it's for working, more of a sort of 'Wind Down Day'!

All the woofers in this house do 'Wind Down' very well!

Today we got taken out this morning in the big car 'cos The Missus was winding down at her mates house sloshing the glue about and she wanted the car to take all the stuff!

That was OK, at least we won't be bothered by the roar of the jet powered vacuum cleaner!

Down on the beach the sea mist was hanging about but we did spot a Wormy Man who was marching up and down with his digging fork!

We shouted at him but he didn't seem to understand what we were saying!

'They've gone the other way!
 Eric and May were all for cuddles 'cos the grass was wet with dew and that made their tummies all wet and damp! Mind you, they got down for the last bit where the grass was shorter and by then the dew had fallen off the grass.

Lunchtime it was rather warm and even Freddy enjoyed being on the beach, he was catching up on his winter tan while holly and I were digging holes!

OK, who is going to rub the Factor 35 on my tummy?
 Needless to say, no one put their paws up and in the end he had to get up and follow us back!

When we got to the football field, Freddy said that with one bound, from a standing start, he could get on top of Old Two Legs hat!

He even offered to bet all his chicken fillet treats for a week.

We didn't fall for it, we had seen this trick before!

It's Freddy Babe on OTL's hat!
OTL had to go out to see one of his customers so Holly and I stood guard up at the bedroom window until he returned. I must admit that I was feeling very drowsy 'cos the sun was shining on the window and it was soooo warm!

We are hoping that tomorrow will be the same 'cos OTL has plans to clean up the garden by getting rid of the weeds that have taken over the 'Wild Place' he had left up the end of the garden, only trouble is, all the wild life has gone 'cos the weeds have taken over and are marching into next doors garden!

If the weather is not ready for some garden work, Holly has been promised a bath and a hair cut!

Anyone guess what Holly is wishing for?

It was super to see Auntie Diana leave a message for Eric de Wimp! We did love the tale from Izzy about low flying woofers!

There is Auntie Sue off down in sunny Dorset, we've been there and that is where we found Dinosorearse foot prints!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

It's all better now!

Hi Woofers!

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

It's been a right day today, full of little surprises and stuff.

Let me explain.

This morning Holly and I were out with Old Two Legs for our walk down the beach. The ferrets May and Eric stayed cuddled up in OTL's arms for most of the walk and only decided to get down at the last hundred yards or so!

Not really a walk in my mind!

Back home OTL was cleaning the cages and doing some last little bits on the computer to get it all back working as it should.

First May and Eric had a rampage around the house plus they had a game of chase with OTL, all good fun.

They then went back into their cage for a slurp of Ferretone and a bit of chicken fillet, yum yum!

As soon as the cage door is shut they finish off the chicken and head for bed and a snooze.

Then it is Freddy and Wendy's turn for a rampage while OTL does the cage. You see? Organised or wot?

Well, today OTL's mind wasn't fully on what he was doing 'cos after cleaning the cage and having another game of chase, plus fiddling about on the computer, he picked up Freddy and Wendy and put them in the cage, but it wasn't their cage, he had put them in with Eric and May!

Without thinking, he shut the cage door and headed for the computer. Well, that was until he heard the scream of a pair of ferrets in mortal combat!

In fact what had happened was Eric, seeing a much bigger Freddy in his cage, ran away and dived under the blankets and pretended he didn't exist!

Freddy, being the friendly sort, crept into the bed that Miss May was stretched out in and gave her a ferret cuddle, which starts off with a bit of butt sniffing!

At that point, Miss May, feeling a new wet nose under her tail, let loose a massive Ferret Fear Fart that made everyone eyes water!

Then, just to push the point home, she sunk her teeth into Freddy whilst at the same time letting of a scream!

By then OTL had got back to the cage and dragged them apart before any harm could be done.

Freddy got grabbed and extracted and Wendy was picked up from the food bowl before she could find Eric, who was still pretending he didn't exist!

It was a case of cuddles all around with OTL, followed by a slurp of Ferretone and an extra lump of chicken for them all!

Naughty OTL, he really aught to keep his mind on one job at a time!

A little later he announced that he had finally sorted the computer, programmed some radios for a customer and finished mending some other radios for another customer!

Things were getting better!

Next it was lunchtime so off we went again. This time we didn't take Freddy and Wendy with us 'cos it had started to rain and the ferrets don't like the rain!

We didn't mind too much 'cos it was that fine misty rain and we had a doggy towel in the car if we got too wet!

Before we headed home we had to delivery all these radios to the customers and fill the car with petrol.

When we finally got back home we were beginning to be hungry and soon had finished off the scoff The Missus had prepared for us.

As a treat we each had a teeth cleaning chew to finish off our meal. Holly decided to leave hers until later but I soon polished mine off.

Then I had an idea!

Holly was on the sofa and I was by the back windows. I started woofing at a pair of cats I could see.

I couldn't really see them but Holly didn't know 'cos she leapt down and rushed to the window woofing her tail off.

As soon as she jumped down from the sofa I dashed around the other side of the chair, jumped up, grabbed the chew, jumped down and rushed up stairs and under OTL's desk where I made short work of the chew!

Next thing I knew, Holly and TM were hunting the chew and both decided that I had it!

As if!

I mean, there was nothing there!

All gone!

All I was doing is nibbling my Bonio Biscuit, and, I had been given that this morning!

I think it has been a good day today!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Blue Has Been The Air!

Hi Woofers!

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

Now, we missed yesterdays blog, it wasn't our fault, honest!

You see, Old Two Legs got us all home safe and sound, then he got the ferrets sorted back into their cages and decided to have a look at the emails that have come in while we have been away.

He shouldn't have done that 'cos he got the surprise of his life!

It seems that someone has hacked his email address and has been sending thousands of spam emails all over the world!

What was worse, there were thousands being bounced back to OTL's mail box as 'Undeliverable'!

Wot was worse, his ISP (Internet Service Provider) shut down his account because of the large amount of messages being sent!

Yesterday, right up until ten past nine, he was at his desk trying to sort it all out. New passwords, new SMTP stuff and loads of technical stuff we have never heard of!

This morning when he fired up the system there were about twenty bounced emails in his box, so he got rid of them and tonight we are crossing our claws that he has managed to clear it all up!

The new computer is running Windows 10 and for some reason OTL is not happy with the security so that has been unplugged and he is back on the old computer that got a 'Hardware Upgrade' (A new tin box and a bigger power supply!)

Holly Chops has not been too happy today, she has something that makes her ear itchy and OTL thinks it may have been the shampoo he used when Holly had her hair cut at the college. Still, it is being washed out and cleaned, not that there is any wax or that but OTL keeps sloshing warm water in her ear and drying it.

Now, because it makes her ear wet and OTL dries it the best he can, to make sure there is nothing else in there, like ear mites, he has brushed some stuff called 'Thornit Powder' which is supposed to help get rid of the creepy crawlies.

There is one small problem, it sniffs terrible! Holly can't stand the stuff and keeps trying to brush it out with her back paw!

OTL says it won't get better if she keeps scratching, so he has devised a hat for Holly, made from a thing he wears when we are in Scotland, to keep the insects and Midges away from his neck!

Holly is not a Happy Puppy, I mean, wot does she look like?
 She was kept on the cushion by OTL and finally she fell asleep only to wake up and not scratch her ear, mainly because OTL had just got a cup of tea and a couple of Choc Chip Cookies!

Not sure wot we got for dinner tonight but OTL has got green stuff!

We reckon he could end up wasting away!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Home again!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, it's been a busy day today, finish off the packing and trying to keep out of the rain called Brian!

We have had a fun week of doing nothing too tiring and not getting into trouble but on the way home we hit big traffic holdups on the M25 which slowed us down!

I suppose it is the South East way of welcoming us back to our patch of land!

Holly and I have been keeping out of the way 'cos The Missus was not in a good mood. You see, this morning she was on her knees cleaning the shower unit in the caravan when little Eric started to duck and dive around having a game with TM. Unfortunately, T ducked her head down to blow a raspberry on Eric's tummy, just at the same moment that Eric decided to jump up and say Boo!

Eric's teeth made contact with TM's nose and, well, ferrets teeth are very sharp and TM's nose is very soft and now Old Two Legs calls her 'Old Scar Nose'!

I'll leave the rest to your imagination!

Now, Archie Babe you will be pleased to hear that Holly and I both got a plate full of steak, all chopped up. Seems the grandchildren decided they didn't like steak!

Wot a pair of plonkers! It was wonderful and we also managed to pinch a little from OTL as well!

Holly and I couldn't remember when we had such a good feed before!

A real Happy Birthday meal!

I think it will be an early night tonight and an early tomorrow to catch up on the work!


See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Happy Birthday Daisy & Holly!

Hello Woofers!

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

Now, guess wot day it is?

It's our birthday, Holly and I are nine years old today!

As a special treat we got to stay in bed a little longer and we got first pick of Old Two Legs Choc Chip Cookies!

We didn't get any more than normal, it was just that we got to choose!

It has been a busy couple of days, on Friday we had to take The Missus to her 'Master Class' where she was demonstrating Advanced Glitter Sloshing!

Glitter Shoshers 'R' Us!


She was teaching all the ladies and she even set some 'Homework'!

There will be an hours Homework, so pay attention!

She can be a hard task master, as OTL will tell you but it is amazing just how attentive those ladies can be when TM cracks the whip!
 
Pay attention at the back!

Friday we went exploring with OTL and discovered a 'Country Park where us woofers were allowed off our leads!

It was great fun charging around chasing rabbits and squirrels!

Here be squirrels and stuff!
Of course I was on the lookout for squirrels cos they are so much fun to chase. Holly was more interested in the rabbits!

OTL caught me doing a 'Pose' looking for squirrels to chase, I look all of eight years and 364 days old!

Me, looking Good!
As we went around the park we came across a bunch trying to do 'Dog Training'! I mean, why do they want to train us? Holly and I ran over, did a couple of 'Come on and chase us' woofs and the whole class fell about!
SSSSSiiiiTTTT!

We thought it was a great laugh and OTL said that we didn't belong to him and walked off!

Saturday it was the same again with TM, more glue slooshing and homework!

Mind you, Freddy and Miss Wendy came along and said hello to everyone!

Freddy getting the 'Star' treatment!









Miss Wendy having a cuddle with OTL!

It had been a long day and even Holly Chops was tired, you could tell that cos she fell asleep on the way home!
'm inspecting the inside of my eyelids!

Today we have been visiting Holly's first family. We said Hello to everyone and enjoyed a super steak lunch. I was out looking for squirrels again while Holly had fun chewing on some acorn which OTL made her spit out!

We had a super day and got back to the caravan to do packing cos tomorrow we are heading home!

See you again soon!

Luv,

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

One Day is just like Another!

Hi Woofers!

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

We sometimes get a situation where one day is very much like the next, take yesterday, it rained.

That means we don't go out hunting rabbit or foxes or squirrels, we instead fall asleep on the sofa and catch up on our snoozes!

It's just great! Loads of snoozes while Old Two Legs and The Missus sit there reading a book.

Today we had the same situation as yesterday, it rained!

Only, today it rained harder and as the morning proceeded, it rained some more!

Now, even us woofers can get a dose of 'Over Snoozing' and this morning it was getting close to that point!

Luckily for us TM decided that she wanted to go out and visit the shop where she is giving a 'Master Class' on Friday and Saturday.

OTL pointed out that the shop was nearly thirty miles away but that didn't seem to bother TM, especially as she wasn't driving! So, in the pouring rain we headed off and arrived after driving through loads of puddles!

OTL likes driving through puddles!

Once TM had been in the shop and had discussed the planned card techniques and how many tons of glitter would be needed, we headed off in search of another craft shop that was supposed to be close by.

Half an hour passed until we found this shop that was located in a shopping mall. TM went off to investigate while OTL decided to take Holly and I out for a wee.

That's when we discovered that we had a problem, we had forgotten our dogs lead and yoke!

We were in a pickle 'cos both Holly and I just fancied a walk and a wee! OTL headed off into the Mall looking for a doggy shop but there was doggy shop, that was until he saw the Barbour Shop, you know, the one that does all the high quality country side type clothing and in the he found some dog leads. He had to pay £20 out of his pocket money to get just one lead! Still, that was enough to take us woofers out, one at a time!

Me first, then Holly. I didn't have a wee, you see I don't like new places to wee, you just never know what woofer has been there first!

Holly on the other paw is of the opinion that she will wee, any where, any time, any place!

She did just that! So, me now wee, Holly weeing and marking the spot, OTL takes me out again and steers me to where Holly had left her mark (puddle) and I went and had a wee on top of Holly's wee!

Sorted!
OTL found a shop and got two pairs of 'double lined' Outdoor Trousers, three pairs of socks and two bobble hats!

OTL was a happy puppy, now he is ready for Winter Time!

Back home it stopped raining for about half an hour so we got our walk down on the field and got back to the caravan just in time, 'cos the rain started again!

TM says there is a 'Met Office Yellow Warning' for some heavy rain and wind this evening. So, down comes the satellite dish but that means OTL is stuffed 'cos he has finished his book, (A Dan Brown Book of 458 pages!) now he has nothing to read except some old photography magazines!

With a bit of luck, tomorrow we can find some open spaces to have a run about, a forest or something like that, we will have to study the book of maps he keeps in the car.

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

We have Arrived!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, we have arrived at the camp site, not as exciting as Scotland, no mountains!
However, wot we do have here, that we don't normally get, is a big field in which we can run, Off the Lead!

It's just great! Loads of sniffs, there are rabbits around cos we can sniff them but so far, we have only seen one!

Yesterday was fun, as normal, Holly and I rode in the back of the car with the ferrets. We headed off and as normal, we woofed at the truck drivers and blew raspberries at the drivers behind us!

Now, normally we go out for our walk around midday, so, come that time Holly and I felt the need of a sniff and a wee! We set about letting The Missus and Old Two Legs know we needed a walk, NOW!

The fact that we were batting along the M40 didn't matter, we wanted a wee and NOW!

Finally we pulled into a motorway service station and parked up, Holly and I were straight out and proceeded to put our mark on the place!

We were soon back on the road and before long we were looking for the entrance to the caravan park. As we drove down the road to the site we noticed that the sun was a funny colour, it was sort of misty red!

Holly knew what it was and explained that dust from North Africa had been sucked up by the hurricane called Ophelia and was now being dropped on us! Sounds a bit technical to me but Holly Chops is a 'Technical Woofer!'

Sahara Sun?

The site is very well laid out and it is all hard standing but the hard standing is the very small shingle type of stone which seems to jam in the tread of OTL's boots, so, every time he comes into the caravan there is a pile of stones on the carpet!

TM is not happy and neither is OTL when he steps on the stones, without his boots on!


The ferrets are super pleased with the field, loads of space and loads of ferrety type sniffs!

A little sniff here, a little sniff there, that's what it's all about!
Holly and I are always keeping a sharp eye open for rabbits that get stuck in the middle of the field!

OK Rabbits, paws up, where are you?
Back in the caravan we have sort of taken over the bench seat that OTL uses, he is now been pushed to one end while Holly and I stretch out and make ourselves comfortable!

This is MINE, OK!
The site has Wi-Fi but not as you would expect. The reception building, which is a big sort of shed has Wi-Fi but only inside the shed, so we have to write up the blog, save the pictures, then wander down to the shed and find somewhere to sit and upload into the Internetty!

Now, as wonderful as this site is, there is always a downer somewhere and we have already found our downer!

There we are, in the field having a sniff , when we jump back with a whopping great burr on our nose!

Nasty Spiky burrs!
OTL, has to pick it all out of our muzzles before we can carry on sniffing!

It's a hard life being a woofer in this place!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Short Back and Stuff this for a game of Woofers!

Hello Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Well, it couldn't be put off any longer, I managed to stay out of view all morning and even got the lunchtime walkies!

Then it was back home and no matter how much I tried to stay 'Invisible'  Old Two Legs called me to the garden shed where all the items of torture were kept, including a nasty vicious wind machine that they accurately call a 'Blaster'.

I don't like blasters!

Actually, it all started yesterday evening, The Missus had gone out on one of her jollies leaving OTL wondering what to do, a DVD or a TV program or.....................let's de-knot poor Daisy!

In the end it was a DVD (the same one Archie Babe watched) and, de knot Daisy!

So, after lunch today I was de- knotted but covered in sniffs!

I was washed in the big 'Plasterers Bath' then wrapped up in a doggy towel and marched off to the shed where the table stood waiting for this poor woofer. out came the Blaster and I just ducked right down. I didn't like it at the poodle parlour and I don't like it at home!

OTL seemed not to care and carried on blasting the water from everywhere on mu body, and I mean EVERYWHERE!

Once I was dry, out came the electric shears and he proceeded to shave the excess hair off my body, all over, and under, and around the back and the front, then down my legs!

I was not a happy woofer, I don't like the electric shears and soon started to yelp and howl as soon as the shears were switched on, never mind when he started to shave off some hair!

Holly was helping as well 'coss she was woofing at OTL telling him not to hurt me and I was yelping in case he got too near with the shears.

Things sort of ground to a halt.

OTL had an idea, out came the special set of scissors for woofer trimming and he set about snipping away, with me being very nervous every time I heard a 'snip, snip'!

I let him work away with the scissors and even stood still as he cut the hair between the pads on my paws. However, I drew the line at claw clipping, I hate that and you could see the result 'cos my dew claw had curled right around, so that means the poodle parlour hadn't trimmed them as OTL had asked!

Naughty poodle parlour!

Well, OTL manged to get his clippers in and trim a few of the longest claws and one dew claw that had curled around but the other he had to leave 'cos I was making too much of a fuss every time he got close!

I can see him taking the clippers away on holiday and catching me unawares!

Well, it took longer than he had planned but he went to town snipping away and in the end we agreed that it wasn't too bad!

So, de sniffed, washed, shaved and trimmed, I suppose it will do for another four weeks!

Does me face look balanced?
 You know, I really was not in the mood for photo's, I suppose you can tell from my frown!

Well, at least my tail feels right!
Mind you, it didn't help having Holly Chops walking behind me saying but butt looked big!

My butt does not look half as big as hers!
So, there we are, all ready to go on holiday tomorrow.

OTL has been looking at the description of the site and noticed that the 'Free Wi-Fi' is only applicable to the wooden hut on the site, not all over as we are used to! So, we will try to get the blog out as normal but it will need a bit of planning, like write up the blog, all pictures to a file, go down to the hut and up load. It sounds easy but what would happen if we were late and the hut was shut? Would we still get on line if we stood outside and looked in through the window?

We will find out tomorrow!

Bye bye for now.

Luv,

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

OTL gets Stabbed!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a wonderful day! The sun has been shining all day and Holly and I have been chasing cats in the garden!

Holly has got a thing about other animals using our garden, she is sort of OK with the small birds like sparrows and finches but when it comes to pigeons or collared doves, that it, she goes potty!

Best of all, when one of the local dopey cats decide to stop off and try to catch a bird, Holly goes potty at the window. Well, the cat sits in the garden ignoring Holly 'cos they think they are safe, well, they are, until Old Two Legs opens the kitchen door and Whoooosh, two woofers in hot pursuit of a moggy is great fun!

We have had cats being chased around one side of the shed by Holly while I circumnavigate the other side of the shed and in the middle the cat finds that it can also travel in a vertical motion as well as the normal directions!

Another good one is where the cat doesn't think it can get over the garden gate and instead dives underneath the gate!

How those cats can flatten themselves like that amazes me. I know the ferrets do that, but cats?

Down on the beach it was a super sunrise, all warm and summery!

OTL was playing with exposures and shutter speeds, all a bit boring but the picture is OK!

Sunshine and Sea!
 While we were down there, we spotted the Two Bob Bozos and gave them a woof.

Marley came bounding down to see who had woofed and to say hello to OTL.

Problem was, he caught us by surprise so we gave him the 'woofers warning woof' which stopped him dead. By then his Two Legs was calling him, so, off he went without getting a stroke from OTL!

Oi! Thus far and no further!
 Back home OTL was all rush and tear getting the cages cleaned out and by nine thirty he was finished. He put his jacket on a waved 'Bye Bye' to us and off he went to the TL's Vet.

So, all big and brave he stood in line until called then got stabbed with a whacking great needle, seems this will stop him getting flu.

Trouble is, he has had this before but he still got the flu!

Lunchtime we were a little earlier than normal 'cos he has to get a pair of new tyres fitted to the big car before we go on holiday.

I must admit, we don't normally sleep as much as we have done today but it has been most enjoyable!

See you all tomorrow and I'll be all clean and shaved and smelling like a Tart!

Luv,

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

A Hole Lot of Fun!

Hi Woofers!

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

We love Friday's, things are winding down for the weekend and we are planning what we will be doing over the two days off!

Down here we were getting prepared for the wash and hair cut that Old Two Legs has been promising me. I had been getting very grubby just to make it worth while!

Unfortunately, that has been postponed until Sunday. OTL has got to go for a flu injection in the morning, then he has to get two new tyres for the big car in the afternoon and finally, he has to go and deliver some stuff late afternoon, so there will be no time for Daisy to get a wash!

YAHOOOOOOOO!

Sunday is free at the moment, so it looks like I will still get the wash tub job!

Down on the beach the sun was shining beams of sun light through the clouds and to be honest, it don't look too bad!

Straight out of the camera, no fiddly diddly on the computer!
 Holly and I had a good time on the beach, rolling in the sniffs and digging holes!

Me, roll in the sand? Never!
 We did get into a bit of a tussle digging the hole. You see we both wanted to get in at the same time and, well, that's when the fight started!

Gerroff or I'll bite your tail!
In the end OTL had to pull us apart and we were both called 'Mucky Puppies' and told to 'Behave' ourselves, as if!

This afternoon OTL has been busy manufacturing and diving back and forth to the carriers to get all the parcels shipped so we can go away on holiday on Monday!

We are off now to see what we can mug off OTL, another steak? Well, you can keep the salad, I mean, unless it is grass, we don't do green stuff!

Bye bye for now!

Luv,

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

Eric is safe again!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, after yesterdays fun and games, Eric has managed to creep back into The Missus's good books, like, he didn't get up on her desk today.

Tomorrow, maybe but not today!

We were late getting to the beach and Old Two Legs was able to shoot directly into the sun and make it look like it was early morning!

Sneaky or wot!

Moody Morning!
Eric was not too happy about walking back to the car, so he stood still and shivered until OTL picked him up and he got a lift almost all the way back!

But I'm COLD!
 Miss May wandered around the beach but was commenting on the fact that the sand was cold and wet and how it made her tummy cold if she stopped walking!

It's cold and wet and makes me shiver!
 By the time lunchtime arrived it had got a but warmer, so Holly Chops made the most of the warm sand and had a good roll!

It's better knowing that under me is a real pongy sniff!
 When we got to the rocks by the Sea Wall, OTL saw this honking great spider walking down the rocks and heading towards Freddy.

Not sure of what the spider could do, OTL picked up Freddy and put him in the ferret bag while he took a couple of snaps.

I must say that I really didn't like the look of this arachnid, mind you, I don't do spiders!

We can't find it in any of our books! Can you see the breathing holes in it's abdomen?
We left it alone and headed off to home!

TM has been cleaning the caravan today and she says it is all nice and clean and sniffing just right!

That means it is going to give us the sneezes, especially the ferrets who don't like the stuff TM squirts into the air!

I think that OTL has salad and something tonight, we can't sniff any cooking so it is bound to be 'Cold'!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Eric is in Deep Poo!

Hello Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Now I know you want to know what Eric has been doing, don't you?

So, let me tell you!

Old Two Legs had to go out today to see one of his customers but the appointment was set just a little earlier than comfortable because of all the cleaning and walking he normally has to do in the mornings.

The Missus said she would help by taking Holly and I out for our morning walk but the ferrets had to stay at home!

We didn't mind and the ferrets said they could have a good time rampaging around the house while OTL got into Poo Shovelling!

Now all three ferrets are normally good little ferrets but the fourth, Eric de Ferret is a bit of an 'Explorer' and manages to get everywhere, especially places where he shouldn't go!

Normally TM is standing in front of her card making stuff and protecting it by picking up Eric when he gets up on things like her desk or the window ledge or in the dustbin!

This morning she left all her stuff out and took us for a walk along the beach.

Eric just couldn't believe his luck!

Ink pads, brushes, sponge balls, paper, pens, dies, stamps and Gesso.

But best of all............. a big jar of water used to wash the brushes!

OTL, being busy upstairs didn't hear the jar topple over or the sound of Eric dancing in the water or his laughter when he left his paw prints across the paper on the desk.

TM was not a happy puppy, in fact she has been plotting Eric's end, a Ferret Ragu or Ferret Kebab or Ferret Pie!

Eric has been hiding in his sleeping bag all day!

TM has been wandering about grinding her teeth!

OTL has decided to stay out of her way, all day!

Lunchtime we were down on the beach with Wendy and Freddy. Holly and I had a great game of chase and I even had a roll in a particularly good fishy sniff!

Now that was worth a double roll!
 Freddy on the other paw blagged a lift all the way down and back to the football field! Wendy called him few names but Freddy didn't care, he'd got his lift and when we got back to the football field, he got down a trotted across!

Across the flat is much better, I don't do hills!
Now, next week we are away up in Lemington Spar for a few days, TM is doing a 'Master Class' and we also got an invitation to Sunday Lunch with Number One Son. OTL reckons he will be able to pig out 'cos no one serves up salad for Sunday Lunch, do they?

This afternoon OTL got the dates of our first holiday for next year and on the way TM will be at another Master Class in a place called Ecclefechan!

And yes, it sounds just like it's spelt!

Life does get soooo busy!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

A Lazy Day for a change!

Hello you Woofers out there!

It's Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Well, we can feel that Autumn is really on it's way. It was chilly when we went out this morning and although the wind wasn't too bad, it still made us shiver first thing!

The ferrets, May and Eric, kept pestering Old Two Legs for a carry and a snuggle in his arms!

Miss May normally doesn't mind the cold but like all ferrets, she has to get started! You see ferrets have no way of controlling their body temperature, so when they wake up, the spend some time shivering to warm themselves up. In the summer when it's hot they find some cool spot and fall asleep!

This time of the year they spend time shivering or snuggling up to OTL!

Holly and I just have to run up and down the beach a couple of times and we are up to speed and warm enough!

Now, you know I have been told that I'm getting a 'Wash & Hair Cut' this weekend? Well, I have decided that if I am going to get wet and shampooed and scrubbed, I might as well get in a state where there will be something to wash off!

So I have started to find all the sniffs that really pong and have a good roll in them!

Of course, Holly Chops says she wouldn't have a roll until next week 'cos she is just too beautiful to get grubby!

I mean, wot a TART! 

This ones going to take a gallon of shampoo to get rid of the sniff!
 Lunchtime we were out again and Miss Wendy decided to walk along the Sea Wall instead of the beach. She doesn't really like the sea shells so a walk on the concrete made a nice change. Freddy Boy blagged a lift from OTL, so he was all warm and comfortable in OTL's arms!

It's a long way above the beach!
OTL had to go and pick up the computer that was in for repair and of course, he cried all the way home 'cos his credit card had got another bashing!

Tomorrow we may get delivery of the 'Blaster' so that should be fun! You can bet that OTL will want to try it out, just to make sure it works properly!

The nail clippers and new head for the electric clippers should arrive at the same time, so, guess who will be playing with his new toys!

We are off now to see what is for dinner, with a bit of luck it will be steak and chips with onions and mushrooms, or, if we are not lucky, cheese salad!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Let's Ban Grumbly Tums!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well Izzy my girl, wot a tale! Those grumbly tums can be a right pain in the butt!

Mind you, both Holly and I have had the bloody poo and the vet also gives us a course of anti bio-tics and some stuff called ProKolin to help bung us up! Mind you, when the grumbly strikes we don't feel like eating either!

Mind you, we don't get the Phantom Pregnancy cos we got 'Done' but that has caused me to loose control of my wee'ing and I'm on pills for all time!

Talking of wee'ing, we have the same fun when Old Two Legs has to get a sample. We sort of assume the wee'ing position and just as OTL shoves the collector under us, we change our mind and wander off!

It drives him potty!

We are glad to see you are on the mend and we will keep our claws crossed for you!

We also hope mum is getting well, she had a bad back didn't she? With any luck she will be back playing Prop Forward with the local rugby team!

Now we can't see anything wrong with helping out with the cards! Young Eric de Ferret has been helping The Missus with her cards. There was one card with ferret feet across the Distress Ink Pad that carried on all over the card, the table and disappeared across the carpet and under the curtains!

Eric has also been filmed trying to get into a bag of sponge balls but TM had zipped it up so he had to wait until she opened the bag!

Down on the beach we spotted some red sky and we haven't seen that for some time, so it looks like autumn is really here and OTL will be snapping away trying to get the colours of the morning!

A little bit of a sun rise!
 Now, did you know that when a ferret gets excited they either waggle their tails or stick their tails in the air and make their tail hair stand on end!

Now Eric is a waggler but May can make her hair stand up!

No, it's not a bottle brush!
 Holly has been a right pain in the tail! She has been showing off her hair cut to everyone she meets and I must say, it's a change to see her eyes!

Do I look good or do I look GOOD!
Mind you, every time OTL gets his camera Holly strikes a pose and gives her tail a waggle!



Yes, I think this is my best side!
 OTL has been down the computer shop 'cos his computer, not the new one, has got a sick power supply.

More spending money!

Not sure wot is for dinner, maybe a venison steak and that green stuff called salad!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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