Misty Morning on The Marsh!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, here we are again with our new titles. Earth Dogs!

First thing this morning it was rather wet and damp and Holly suggested we could change the title to Water Dogs!

On our way over to the beach we stopped to look at the mist over the marshes.

First shot is of the container port with the big cranes and the gas powered power station.

No sunrise but misty!
 Then we turned around and looked back towards our kennel and there was mist across the reed beds!

All sort of Ethereal!
 Back home we found that The Missus had gone off to her Crop, taking at least a couple of tons of glitter and a few gallons of glue.

She was going to have a good day!

Holly and I got brushed and had the hair around our eyes trimmed a little. We also got our legs and paws trimmed as well. Old Two Legs has decided not to give us our hair cut yet 'cos it is still cold first thing and as long as we get a regular brush we should be OK until March before we get the bath and haircut!

Lunchtime we took Eric and May with us down to the seaside. Eric was talking about this year of the dog stuff and asked if there was a Year of the Ferret?

Holly, being very knowing about these things announced that there were twelve animals, Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig!

So, we reckon that as OTL sometimes calls the ferrets 'Little Rats' the nearest to a ferret is a rat.

Eric was not happy about that and said he would rather be a Dragon!

Holly also said that OTL was born in the Year of the Dog and what is better, he is a Fire Dog!

That explains his Woofer appeal!

Miss May says that as they don't have a year of the Ferret, then it is all a load of rubbish!

Just at that moment we spotted a container ship going down the Thames.

Shouldn't that be Yang & Ying?
We got back to the football field and saw that they were setting up for a game, so the ferrets kept off the pitch and instead went hunting moles!

Wot about the year of the Mole?
Last night we had a Chinese Takeaway and both Holly and I managed to mug OTL for some of his King Plawns and some of the Plawn Clackers!

It was great!

TM sad it made a change from cooking dinner but OTL did point out that he has been surviving on a diet of salad and cold meat and there was no cooking there!

The things he does just to loose a few kilos!

I'm not sure what we got tonight but whatever it is it will contain salad and cold meat!

See you tomorrow!


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