It feels like Spring today!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a wonderful day it's been today!

If we ignore the fact that both Holly and I have got a 'Grumbly Tum' for something we have both eaten, today has been super!

We got down onto the beach with Wendy and Freddy and had a great time on the sand.

Both ferrets we running around digging holes while Holly and I tormented Old Two Legs by rolling on the sand and ignoring his instructions to 'Get Up'! 

Any closer and your tail is Mine!
Looking out over the river Medway was great 'cos the sun was shining and the sky was almost clear of clouds!

A real Spring Day!
Holly Chops just couldn't stop herself, sore butt or no!

Holly getting sandy!
When we got back with May and Eric, the sun was still shining down onto the beach. Eric and May were digging trenches while I got going with a couple of holes!

Everyone was rolling on the sand as well!

Of course I joined in but instead of rolling around, I went for a bit of 'Dig and Whizz' all up and down the beach and just for fun I was pushing the sand back into the ferrets trenches!

Sand? Me? No! Not Me!
Then we decided to have a contest, The Best Sand Hole' with OTL deciding on the winner!

After much deliberation he said that Miss May had the most impressive hole especially as she was a ferret with short legs!

Oi! My hole is the best!
Both Holly and I though that OTL had been 'got at' 'cos we saw May sitting on his shoulder and giving his ear a lick!

Back home OTL spent a couple of hours installing four new bird nesting boxes and he also took down two that had got past their best!

So, now there are three sparrow boxes on the shed while the one for Blue Tits has been moved to the branch of the tree in the garden.

We still have the bird box with a camera in it but being it is for sparrows, we expect they will load it up with grass and stuff and block the camera lens as they did last year!

Now, we have also seen Ratty raiding the seed fallen from the bird feeder. He or she, is still on their own so OTL has been hunting out the Rat Trap that spent the winter behind the shed!

Now we have been here before and Ratty has been too sneaky in the past and ignored the tempting food pile on the trigger plate!

Still, if we don't trap Ratty, OTL will get the camera out to get him on film!

Now this morning I was reading Izzy's comments and went all shivery and cold remembering when I had the chip dug into my shoulder! It was horrible and only made me very afraid of the vet! Still, it doesn't hurt any more but at the time...........Ouch!

So, that's it for today, The Missus is getting her stuff ready for her trip to the U.S.A. and OTL has had the first delivery of frozen meals on plastic plates!

He'll do anything to get out of the washing up!

See you all tomorrow!
