Spring is Here, sort of!

Hi Woofers!

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

Now then, paws up all of you who know that meteorologically, spring started on the first of March!

Well done, you have been listening to the weather forecasts!

Judging by all the snow and cold winds we rather think that the 20th March should be the beginning, well, it is if you go by the astronomical calendar!

When we were out this morning wandering along the slushy path beside the field Old Two Legs spotted this.

The first buds of Spring?
 I will admit, I don't do high up stuff, you see my nose is closer to the ground and sniffs are easier come by when your nose is twelve inches from the ground!

If I do this my nose is even closer to the ground!
 Once we got into the field we could see that the snow had been melting overnight 'cos the green of the crop was just visible above the snow!

It's green but is it wheat or barley!
Back home we got served up with some chicken and after that we get a Rawhide Chew each, that is Holly and me, not OTL, he doesn't like rawhide!

The ferrets have really taken to the dehydrated chicken strips and when Freddy gets his he rushes off to a corner and doesn't come out until it is all gone!

He has also taken to giving the chicken strip to OTL to hold while Freddy chews lumps off the end until his teeth get too close to OTL's fingers!

We really didn't want to go out at lunchtime 'cos the chews were only half chewed but OTL insisted, so, off we went looking for a sniff!

When we got to the field we had a shock, loads of green stuff poking up in the air!

It's a bit soggy and a bit wet and a bit cold!
Holly was still kept of the lead 'cos she only wanted a wee and after that she wanted to go back to the rawhide chew!

An afternoon well spent, chewing and snoozing and mugging OTL for some more chicken strips!

See you tomorrow and with a bit of luck we will get to go walkies down on the sea front!

Bye bye for now.


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