It's us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here.
Well, weather wise it has been a great day, loads of sun shine, balmy breezes and loads of tourists wandering up and down the Sea Wall.
Old Two Legs took Miss May and Eric out this morning but for some reason May just didn't fancy a run, mainly 'cos the dew was heavy on the grass and she said it was more like swimming than walking, so she blagged a ride in OTL's arms all the way!
Well, almost, she was down for a trip across the football field but that was all, too damp, too wet and too cold on her tummy!
Eric on the other paw was having a great time paddling in the wet grass!
OTL didn't take the camera with him today, he reckons there will be loads of tourists and each of them will have an in controlled woofer with them so the chance of and reasonable photo is highly unlikely!
After the morning walk it started.
I hid in the office while Holly got caught first!
Holly chops got first go in the washing machine, well, OTL calls it 'The Shower'!
A big bucket was filled with water, then a towel was folded to provide a mat on the floor of the washing machine and she was soaped, sploshed, scrubbed and squeezed dry! Then down to the torture table where she got a blow dry from that 'Dog Blaster' thingy that we hate!
After that it was out with the shaver, scissors and short back and sides!
Holly hated it but OTL kept muttering, 'That's another sixty quid I've saved!'
Then when OTL had finished it was time for the lunch time walk.
Again it was a case of too many tourists and we left Freddy and Wendy to sleep 'cos it was not only a bit too warm but there were too many tourists again!
On our way back we stopped in to pick up The Missus and Auntie Helen came out to see us. Both Holly and I gave her nose a lick 'cos she says she always reads this blog!
Good on yer girl!
The afternoon was spent with me getting the 'Full Treatment' and I got injured!
There I was standing still while OTL was clipping the hair around my paws when he touched my claw with the scissors and I jumped.
That was enough for the scissors to nick my paw and OTL had to dab on some diluted Iodine.
That turned my paw all brown looking and also stained his paw as well!
When TM arrived back we had all been 'Done' and OTL had just finished clearing up everywhere.
We got a special treat 'cos as TM was bringing the boxes in, the ice cream man arrived!
Well, we all got an ice cream filled cone to lick and Holly and I shared one!
It was a race to see who could lick the most!
Holly won, she has a tongue like an elephants trunk!
We do just LOVE an ice cream cone!
Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.
