Oh No! Not Another One!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret right at the start of another year!

We didn't stay up until midnight to see the new year in 'cos The Missus was tired and fell asleep at eight, so we packed her off to bed!

The ferrets were fast asleep as soon as it got dark. Holly and I had mugged Old Two Legs for half his dinner, so, we had full tummies and just didn't have the energy to stay awake and finally, OTL had been chewing on some shortbread and a little 'Water of Life' to help wash it down!

He managed ten fifteen before deciding that bed would be a good option!

It was sunrise before we got up this morning!

Now, the man from the Premium Bond people hasn't knocked on our door today so it looks like OTL will have to go back to work tomorrow!

This morning he went to his clothes cupboard to find a shirt, switched the light on which immediately  went 'Pop' and refused to work any more!

That was it, OTL got the right hump, in the thirty years we have been in this house that is the second bulb to blow in his cupboard and what is worse, they don't make the bulbs any more!

It was still sort of foggy out to sea today and there was rain threatened but we didn't see any more than a couple of rain drops that didn't even register on the weather monitor thingy in OTL's office!

A poor sunrise and foggy as well, not the best start to the New Year!
The ferrets, May and Eric had some fun in the grass after getting off the beach and Eric asked for a carry. OTL picked him up and was rubbing the side of his neck when he felt a small lump!

OTL knows all about lumps and announced that it felt like a 'Tick'!

Eric doesn't know what a Tick is and he did a wriggle when OTL went back for another feel. By now the lump had moved and OTL found it again, just as Eric went into 'Wriggle Mode' again!

That was it, Eric got held by the scruff as OTL did a more detailed examination, only to find the lump had fallen off.

No Tick, just a bit of rubbish picked up from rummaging in the grass! Lucky Ferret!

Lunchtime the world and his wife were out walking along our Sea Wall, loads of woofers and Two Legs with Mini Two Legs.

Of course, almost everyone stopped and wanted to see the ferrets, have a stroke of the ferrets, talk about ferrets and ask Daddy if they can have as a pet!

Boring or wot!

Holly and I had a game of 'Chase' on the beach but no one asked about us, just the blooming ferrets!

Look, I've just buried a ferret!
Holly pretended she had buried another ferret but no one took any notice all they wanted to do is stroke the ferrets in OTL's arms!

When we got home the ferrets were straight into their cage and were asleep in three minutes!

So Holly and I joined them and crashed out on our day beds!

Tomorrow it's Back to Work, so OTL will be working away at the pile of paper on his desk.

Holly and I will be sleeping!

Who said it was a dogs life!

See you tomorrow!


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