Getting ready for Winter.

Yo! Woofers!

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

Now we don't think that Mrs Sue was playing the game by reading out the Christmas Shopping List before Christmas!

We were trying to keep it a surprise for The Missus!

Now, we wouldn't think of letting Old Two Legs know that he has a new pair of gardening gloves for Christmas!

It wouldn't be fair!

OTL decided to keep the washing machine on order 'cos the old machine that we have had for in excess of ten years is making a noise like a jet engine on full throttle!

We are taking bets on it lasting until Sunday when OTL has to dismantle it and put it outside for the delivery men to take away.

Now that Winter is almost upon us, the ferrets are all getting their Winter Coats. Miss May looks like a big ball of squishy fur! Freddy de Ferret has just got fatter and his fur has got thicker. Wendy seems not to have changed yet, mind you, she has always been a bit 'Puddneney' !

Eric de Ferret has had the biggest change. He has put on a lot of weight and his tail is the most glorious black and thick with hair. His face has gone from a 'Dark Polecat' look up to almost a Champagne Ferret look!

Of course, we had Holly singing 'Champagne Charlie Is My Name' just to wind Eric up!

If it spreads any further I'll look like Miss May!
Nowadays, when ever we see Eric he has his nose inside the feeding bowl. The Ferret Hobs always get fatter over Winter, getting ready for the mating season when the fight for control over breeding rights! Mind you, as all of the ferrets have been 'Done' there is no breeding, just getting fatter!

Bit like OTL really!

Food just seems to taste better when the weather is colder!
 Holly says that Eric could carry on and we could end up with a white ferret, just like Snowflake!

Only problem is, he doesn't have red eyes!

Do I look good or wot!
 It seems to be getting colder all the time, you can tell Winter is coming, in fact, according to Holly Chops who knows all this stuff, Winter officially starts on December 1st, so watch out, on the first it could snow and we may even get icebergs in our pond!

Yesterday we got a big bowl of chicken but today it is back to Doggy Scoff, you know a woofer could stave if he had to survive on Doggy Scoff!

By the way, we haven't got the camera back yet, OTL has used the big camera indoors.

OTL has been looking at some Christmas Clothes but can't make up his mind on what to wear for the Christmas Card, so it looks like it will be us Woofers again!

See you tomorrow!


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