Short Back and Sides and a Bit off the Butt!

Hello Woofers!

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

We like Saturdays, you see there is always a chance that The Missus is off to her Master Class or Gas & Glitter Day at the local village Hall. That leaves us in the hands of Old Two Legs who, after doing all his jobs, has a game with the ferrets and then Holly and I!

First thing this morning we were down on the beach and looking at the clouds we thought we might be in for some rain!

Early Morning on the North Kent Coast
 We started off by having a roll in the sand. Well, to start off the ferrets did all the rolling and we had to stand back and wait!

Anyone would think they owned the beach!
 Miss May hadn't had a run yesterday so she was well up for a good roll, she even tried kicking Eric out of the hole!

When you haven't had a roll for some time, the first roll feels just great!
 I thought that I'd have a go at getting them out but Eric got all big and brave and tried to give me a 'Ferret Kiss'!

Gerroff out of our hole!
Back home OTL set about doing his jobs and when he started off cleaning Eric and May's cage he had a nasty shock. There were two piles of poo that were red!

I mean, if Holly or I had done something like that we'd be straight off down the vet's complete with blue flashing lights and loud sirens!

After the first bit of panic, OTL took a closer look at piles of poo.

Now, a little while ago we took delivery of a box of Ferretone and the supplier had put a packet of Ferret Treats in with the Ferretone. Eric loved the treats and so did Freddy Boy. May and Wendy didn't bother, so the lads made pigs of themselves.

Unfortunately, the treats were covered in a vegetable dye which turned their poo blood red!

OTL dumped the treats, fearing there may be stuff in there that might upset their tummies!

On inspection of the poo piles, they were exactly the same colour!

Panic over!

It looks like one of the ferrets had hidden the treats only to be dug out again from under the piles of stuff in TM's Store Room!

After all the jobs had been done Holly got another Bath and hair cut!

As she was the first to be 'experimented on' by OTL and his clippers. She was OK on the body but her legs ended up being a bit 'Hairy', so, OTL did a quick trim on her back and tummy then set about doing her legs. Holly was a good girl and although she wiggled about a bit, most of the time she stood still.

OTL says that he may have another go next week and try to improve the 'Cut'.

He also says that I may get a trim as well, mind you, he'll have to catch me first!

While he was clearing everything up he managed to trip over and hurt his ankle, poor lad, that will teach him to pick his paws up!

See you tomorrow!
