It's the Winter Solstice Today!

Hello Woofers!

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

It's the shortest day of the year today, the Winter Solstice, also it will be the longest night!

We don't mind it being the longest night 'cos we get a bit longer in bed!

The ferrets say that their life is governed by the light so they are now looking forward to the summer!

I can see it won't be long before they start moulting and spreading hairs all over the place!

Mind you, at the moment they are all fluffy with their winter coats!

 This morning when we went out it was almost summer! Old Two Legs got a bit hot in his jacket and scarf and both May and Eric ran all the way from the beach all the way to the car park!

Normally Eric tries to blag a lift but today he was enjoying the sniffs so much he forgot all about being carried!

Back home the ferrets normally get an hour to rampage around the house causing all sorts of mayhem but today Eric and May had a little play, then crept into the void under the sofa where they have a snooze.

It looks like the walk just wore them out!

Lunchtime we woke Fred and Wendy up to go for a run and although they both said they'd rather stay in bed, they both came along for a run.

Freddy would have rather had a carry but he did get going once he was on the top path!

His last run was across the football field and it was more of a 'waddle' than a run!

Almost there and I've got my Winter Coat on as well!

When we got home there was Auntie Sue and Nunkie Mike chatting with The Missus, well, that was until we came crashing through the door and gave them both a 'Woofers Welcome'!

Then we got a pressie!

Holly and I got super packet of chews and I will admit, I had two before anyone could blink!

Holly, has a bit of a grumbly tum and decided to wait until later tonight or tomorrow morning before having her treat!

It was lovely seeing them again and OTL spent time talking about cameras and lenses and caravans and....well Holly and I fell asleep!

See you all tomorrow!
