It's Friday at last!

Hi Woofers,

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

Another cold day but not as cold as yesterday! Mind you, it is Winter and the colder it is the more bugs get zapped so we don't suffer from biting bugs in the summer!

You know it was so cold Old Two Legs didn't bother with the camera this morning!

It took young Freddy a little while to get going on the beach but once he had warmed up, he was off like a shot, heading back to a warm comfortable travelling cage in the back of the car!

We remembered what he was like when we first welcomed him to our pack, he would spend ages just looking at the bushes and the sky and saying that he 'Didn't know there was so much!

Nowadays he is all tearing about sniffing all the sniffs and almost keeping up with May as she enjoys a good run along the grass path!

Lunchtime we were back again but with May and Eric this time. Now Eric is a bit of a 'Freddy Clone' with regard to this walking lark. It's OK spending all your time in a warm cage with soft bedding but a walk in the fresh air or a dig on the beach really gets your fur to stand up!

Well, it was like that with Eric. At the Ferret Rescue he and his brothers and sisters were in the open air but still in a cage, so they got fresh air but no rampaging!

To begin with Eric was a little unsure of himself and spent most of the time looking at the sky and all the bushes and then he does a 'Freddy' which is 'Roll on your back and wait to be picked up'!

Miss May is a bit of a 'Fast Lady' and enjoys a good run. If Eric wasn't keeping up she would rush back and give him a shove!

It didn't take Eric long to pick up on the walking lark and although his isn't as fast as May, he does keep a good pace!

OK girl, race you to the steps!

 Everyone has their limit and Eric is no different, there comes a time when the strain of keeping his tummy off the ground does tend to make him a bit tired, so, he stops and waits until OTL crouches down so Eric can run up and jump onto OTL's leg so he can get a carry for a little while.

Now this is causing OTL a problem 'cos when OTL wants to take a picture of Eric, Eric thinks that OTL is offering a lift and he goes rushing over to OTL and up he goes!

So, the only way to get a picture of Eric it for OTL to wait and 'Ambush' Eric as he tries to climb the steps!

You did this yesterday!
 Holly reckons that we should do a 'Freddy' and roll over onto our backs and wait for OTL to pick us up and carry us back to the car!

Wot about a lift OTL?
 OTL says that if we can both climb into the ferret bag he would give us a lift!

I don't reckon that Holly could get her head in the bag, never mind her butt!

So, us woofers are back on our paws again!

OTL has got to go out tomorrow morning to do some work, now that's a bit much, I mean, hasn't his customers learnt that the weekend is for resting!

See you all tomorrow!


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