Holly gets Shaved!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here!

Now, normally the weekends mean an extra half an hour snoozing in the morning but this week we were up an whole half an hour earlier!

Seems that The Missus wanted the car at seven to take up all her stuff to the village hall for this weeks Master Class!

One of the good things about getting up early is that we got to see the sun creep up over the horizon!

The first sunrise since before Spring started!

Here it is, the first sunrise of Autumn!

One of the good things was our new harnesses have light reflective bits and the sun lit them up a treat. Just wait until the Winter when it is dark and Old Two Legs is waving the torch around to find us, we will be lit up like a Christmas Tree!

Oops! That's the first mention of Christmas this year!

Being up so early, we spotted a few rabbits and of course Holly and I chased after them but to be honest, they spotted us and legged it before we could get close enough to grab their tails!

Once the ferret cages had been cleaned OTL started to get out all the hair cutting equipment! That was not good news!

I sneaked off and his under the office work surface while dopey Holly followed OTL around asking what he was doing!

I mean, just how daft can you be?

I heard OTL calling Holly into the bathroom and then the water and shampoo started to get sloshed about. Holly kept trying to get out of the shower but OTL kept turning her around so he could wash all her bits, including behind her ears!

Next came The Blaster!

This thing blows out warm air with force and the idea is that it blows the water off our hair.

Holly is not in love with this thing and if OTL puts it too close she snarls and shows her teeth to warn it away!

After that it was the electric clippers all over Holly. This time OTL started up at her head first 'cos clipping hair around her muzzle made her sit still and OTL was able to carefully clip around her ears and under her chin!

After that it was hair cutting all the way down to her tail. There was some wriggling but OTL took a break so Holly could have a dash about and work off a bit of steam!

So, in the end it didn't look too bad, but there is a little bit more trimming to do around her paws but that can wait until tomorrow or the day after.

So, our Holly chops now looks like this!  

Do I look good or wot!
OTL has got curry tonight, so, with a bit of luck we will get a bit of Naan bread dipped in the sauce, claws crossed!

See you tomorrow!


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