A bit of a drab morning!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, here it is, the end of February and although the temperature has gone down a bit we still haven't seen any snow drifts or floods or howling gales!

Loads of frost and misty mornings  but not the hard frost Old Two Legs tells us he knew when he was a little puppy!

This morning it was a bit dull, no super sunrise, more of a grey excuse of a morning!

We spotted a Two Legs standing by the water waiting for the sun to come up but as Old Two Legs said, 'Wot she needs is a Big Lens'!

Is that it?
 OTL whips out his big camera and with his big lens extended to its maximum proved that a big lens works!

300mm at 5.4f
 That's how yer do it!

Just to show the difference!

Might as well go back to bed!
 We met up with a TL who had lost his woofer. We know the woofer cos he thinks that OTL is wonderful!

We just call him a Bozo cos he is it a bit unruly and is likely to start a fight!

We kept our eyes open, just in case!

Lunchtime we left the ferrets in their cages, snoring their paws off and headed down to the sea shore again.

It was good to see the Hawthorn blooms bursting into life.

A good sign of spring!
What was better was spotting a whole tree covered in blossom!

Pretty soon it will be blooms everywhere!
As we headed over the hill there was loads of smoke coming from the hole in the ground!

Holly and I were a bit worried cos this smoke got right up your nose and made my ears pop when I sneezed!

You don't see this very often!
 Holly suggested that OTL should phone the fire brigade to report the fire but before OTL could get his phone out we spotted the sign!

As Holly said, ' don't look very controlled to me!'
We didn't hang about, the smoke was horrid and on top of that, The Missus was cooking chicken back at home!

So, that's it for us today, TM is away this weekend for a bit of glue slapping somewhere up north!

OTL says that he will be able to get a bit more room in the bed!

We'll see about that!

See you tomorrow!

Miss May has been out on a gallop today!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wasn't it cold this morning? We got up at our normal time and got down to the sea shore just as the sun was creeping up over the horizon.

One of the good things about catching the sun so early is that you could see sun spots, if there were any to see!

It looks quite tasty!
 It is amazing just how things change over a few minutes!

.....and now it's warming up the sea!
 The last bit of sunshine crept over the hill just before the sunrise disappeared and the frost was plain to see!

The last bit of the sunrise!
 We headed back home to enjoy our morning snooze while the ferrets enjoyed a rampage around the house!

Don't sit down on the frost 'cos it'll freeze your butt!
By the time lunchtime arrived the sun was up and the frost had gone. Miss May said she fancied a run so both Eric and may climbed into the ferret travel cage!

Eric was a little lazy and tried to spend time in the bag watching the world go by.

Miss May was so pleased to be out that she spent almost all the time on the ground rolling on the grass and at one point she was in a mole hole having a great time digging the soil out of the hole!

I just love a roll in the grass!
 Getting in the hole was no problem but getting out was a struggle!

That was a bit of a struggle!
 Eric, seeing what fun May was having, he was soon on the ground and heading towards the hole!

This soil is good and diggable!
 May was enjoying herself and spent almost all of the walk around the sea shore, sniffing and snuffling amongst the grass.

Once we got back home they both headed for the cuddle cup for a cuddle and a snooze!

Holly has said that we will be getting some cold weather by the weekend, so I don't suppose that the ferrets will be out if it's cold!

I do hope it's not too cold, we are just getting used to this warm weather!

See you tomorrow!

Busy doing nothing!

Hello Woofers!

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

Well, as we said, it's been a bit of a nothing day today.

We were out for our morning walk but a whole hour later than normal!

Yes, we over slept!

So, we missed the sunrise and by the time we got to the football field the sun was up and steaming across the sky, mind you, there was a little bit of mist left, so Old Two Legs had a play with that!

If you look one way, it's not very interesting!
 However, if you turn the other way and walk ten steps you get.......

Now, that's a moody one!
 So, keeping to the same side we walked a few more paces and there was this one.

Moody through the tress and brambles.
 Just for a change we spotted a Robin looking for breakfast. We don't often see birds among the trees 'cos there's no leaves to hide them but as spring creeps on, along come the birds!

Hello Woofers, seen and grubs?
 As we headed towards the sea shore the sun really got up and even OTL was blinded!

We must remember to bring our sun glasses tomorrow!
 Once we got over the hill we had to keep our eyes shut, so, that means we had to use our noses and of course that means we could find all the sniffs!

You know, we could have missed this one!
 Once back at home, OTL got busy with the ferrets and we headed for bed!

Lunchtime came along and today OTL brought Wendy and Monty along for a walk. Miss Wendy managed to blag a lift in the ferret bag but Monty was happy to chase after OTL along the path. OTL decided to leave the camera at home 'cos he is playing with the big camera as the small one has gone wobbly and is in need of some TLC from the manufacturer!

I expect he will get it sent off over the next week or so!

This afternoon OTL took both of the cars to the car wash and got a 'Mini Valet' which managed to get rid of our muddy paw prints and the marks made by Holly's nose on the windscreen where she has been woofing at the truckers!

I'm off now 'cos our chicken has just been dished out, so, bye bye for now!

Misty Morning, Foggy Day

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a super day we have just had, OK, so this morning first thing it looked like it was going to be cold 'cos Old Two Legs had to scrape ice off the windscreen before we could go for our walk.

When we got to the football field there was some heavy mist swirling about and the sun had got up before we got there, but......................just look at this!

Now, is this moody or wot?
 Old Two Legs spent a bit of time getting the sun to hide behind the tree trunk but it was worth it!

Not bad, not bad at all!
 As we got around the corner we saw the sun being reflected on the wet mud! That gave us two suns!

Sun and Mini Sun!
 We met up with the lads who were later than normal and after a good sniff we left them with the morning sun and headed back home.

Around the back of the rubbish bin there's a good sniff, fox we think!
 One of the good things about the early morning walk is the possibility of frost or dew on the spiders web.

Looks like diamonds!
 One this was did see later was the tide turning and coming back in, it looked a bit like a mini tsunami heading back to the shore!

A tsunami is on the way it!
 Of course, it wasn't a real tsunami but it still looked interesting, if you are interested in stuff like that!

Holly says that this warm weather will last for most of the week so we intend to wake up a couple of ferrets for a run around tomorrow, not too sure who it will be but we reckon Eric and May stand a good chance!

See you tomorrow!

He's back and he has some explaining to do!

Hi Woofers!

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

OK, he is back home and is being all quiet and secretive about wot he has been doing.

We showed him the pictures of Alun and you know what? He said it had nothing to do with him!

Well, I must say, we don't believe him!

Poor Missus had to take us walking again today and we decided to take her up the big hill.

It took her a while to get up and we think she might have pulled a muscle in her leg!

We have decided to let Old Two Legs have a snooze this afternoon and tomorrow it should be back to normal!

With a bit of luck!

See you all tomorrow!

Getting More Info!

Hi Woofers!

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

Old Two Legs didn't come home last night and we think he may have been getting into trouble!

This morning The Missus had to take us for our walk down by the sea shore and once again we showed her which way to go!

We have had a lazy day here and I have been spending time looking out of the window just to see if OTL is turning into our road but so far, no OTL!

It was later this afternoon, after our midday walk, that we got some photos sent to out email box.

Now, what do you make out of these?

Can I Bite them?
 This one looked like it was going to start some trouble!

I see Food!
 Looks like Alun has got himself a prize, second but there is always next year!

Well done Alun, now, where is OTL?
We have not heard anything about OTL so we reckon he is managing to stay out of trouble!

See you all tomorrow!

He's Left Us!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, it's been a bit of a strange day today. Like, we went out first thing this morning but couldn't see a thing! Just loads of sniffs and it was Holly who pointed out that there was nothing but thick mist all over the place!

Old Two Legs left the camera in the car 'cos what is the point of photographing mist?

Back home The Missus had packed up all her glue slapping stuff and was heading out to the village hall for a day mayhem!

OTL did all the cage cleaning and ferret chasing and by the time they were put back into the cages they were almost worn out!

Lunchtime came and it was still thick mist everywhere but this time OTL took the camera out of the bag and went on the hunt for Proof of Spring!

First of all he found some Hawthorn Blossom that had just burst over the last day or so.

In a couple of days it will be a tree full of blossom!
 We suggested that OTL use the 'Close Up' lens to photograph the blossom and he saud maybe next week!

You will have to put up with the 28-300 lens today!
 There was also the Gorse that was in flower but that seems to always be in blossom!

We've seen this before!
 After the lunchtime walk TM came home and took us up the hall but OTL stayed at home?

Strange, but when we got back he was gone!

Most odd and Holly was wondering what has happened but while I was typing this up, I found a file that we were unsure what it was all about.

It was from Alun to OTL saying that he had found a 'Bird' that will 'Do just great'

 We have decided to wait until he gets back before showing this to TM!

Hello Tweety Pie!
No, we are not sure either, however, when OTL and Alun get together anything can happen!

See you tomorrow!

Happy Birthday Missy Sue!

Hi Woofers!

It's Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret, Monty de Ferret again!

OK, here we go, after 600,           1...........19.............600!

Happy Birthday to Sue
Cake and Candles for yoo
Chocs and flowers from Michael
And big licks from us tooooooooo!

There, we can do a song without a poo! Mind you, it was difficult!

The morning walk was dark this morning and the sun was playing games with Old Two Legs, first it stuck its head up then it went back to bed again!

Look! The Sun!
OTL got fed up waiting for the sun and turned his attention to the moon and clicked off this one.

It would look better if the camera was mounted on a tripod!
Then, as we turned around, the sky changed again!

Pretty but the sun has gone again!
While we were watching it changed again and there, under the cloud, we could see the sun climbing over the horizon!

Finally the Sun put in an appearance!
Back home Holly and retired to the bed for a well earned snooze while OTL cleaned cages and ferrets ran amok around the house.

May slurped her medicine then headed off for the sofa to find a cosy corner for a snooze!

It got to lunchtime and OTL rattled the cage to see if Wendy and Monty wanted to come out for a walk.

As we were crossing the Football Field I found a tennis ball!

So, with OTL kicking it and me chasing we had a fun five minutes!
I got it! I Got It!..........I missed it!
I played my normal trick of grabbing the ball and running away, good fun and it made OTL walk half way down the field!

I'll get it this time.......I'll Get It This Time!......................Missed Again!
There was Mr Corvid having a lunch break and he asked to join in but OTL said that Holly might be a bit rough when she tackles!

Yes, I see what you mean, she is a bit lumpy around the butt!
Monty and Wendy enjoyed a run and even raced OTL across the football field!

Back home it took just five minutes for them to have a spot of lunch, a drink and search out somewhere soft to sleep!

Doggy Scoff today, unlike Missy Sue who is being treated to steak and chips at the best restaraunt in town!

See you tomorrow!

Sunny, Sunny Day!

Hello Woofers!

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

Hasn't it been a super day today? It was just a little chilly first thing but later on the sun came out and everything warmed up!

Suns up but it's chilly!
This morning we didn't see any woofers or Two Legs so just for a change, we had it all to ourselves!

Mind you, the lunchtime walk was just too crowded!

Just because it is half term time there were loads of Grandpa's and Grandma's out with mini TL's who would rather be back home on the PlayStation!

I wonder if we'll meet anyone today?
We had brought Eric with us today and to begin with he didn't want to walk, all he wanted to do was sit in the ferret bag and look out over the top of the bag!

Even when a couple of Hairy Schnauzers came bounding along he stayed in the bag!

Holly and I had a sniff but we didn't hang about too long 'cos there were loads of TL's and woofers around and we had to keep an eye open for Eric's sake! 

Can you eat ferrets?
Eric was quite happy to just sit on the grass and enjoy the sunshine and the warmth but when we spotted Bert coming down the path he decided to get back to the bag for a little rest!

Now, I could do this all day if the woofers weren't around!
We met up with Bert, he's the one that has fallen in love with Holly! As normal, she played the Tart and had him running around in circles!

Poor Bert, but he did get a kiss!
Before getting into the car I played my normal game, that's where I sit on the grass looking every where except where Old Two Legs is jumping up and down and calling me!

No, I won't look at you or even let on you are in front of me!
It's a super game and I win every time!

With a bit of luck it will be getting warmer as the weekend gets closer and if it is warm enough we will get Miss May out for another run across the football field!

See you tomorrow!

Home Alone!

Hello Woofers!

It's us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Yesterday Miss May came out with us and had a great time sniffing and rolling in sniffs and running all over the place. Well, today she paid for it! When Old Two Legs went to wake Eric and May in time for some breakfast and Mays medicine, she just couldn't wake up!

In fact she just stayed rolled up in her sleeping bag and carried on snoozing!

There was a time when OTL thought she wasn't feeling very well but in the end she woke up and after a bit of breakfast and slurping down her medicine, she was off like she had her tail on fire!

The moon was out this morning and it was a full moon. We were just a little late and so was the sun!

Just peeking through the branches!
 Looking across the estuary we could see the light beginning but that was it, no sun, until we got half way home!

Well, yellow makes a change!
 And yellow it was, OTL managed to take a couple of shots at the moon which was yellow looking, I suppose you could call it a 'Harvest Mood' except that it's not Harvest Time!

Well, it makes a change from the bright silver thing we normally see!
By the time we were heading back to the car the moon had gone down over the horizon so that's all we are going to see today, maybe tomorrow it will be a Blue Moon!

It was around nine thirty that OTL took us for a walk around the football field at the back the house.

Now this was not normal, we just don't do wandering around the football field at that time in the morning!

As soon as we were back both OTL and The Missus headed of in the big car and left us all alone until half way through the after noon!

Not fair!

They are back now and all is OK but us woofers don't like being left on our own!

With a bit of luck Wendy and Monty will be out for a run tomorrow, providing it's not raining!

See you tomorrow!

Miss May's Outing!

Hi Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret!

Today The Missus headed off with Old Two Legs for her appointment with the Eyeball Specialist for the next stage of treatment.

It seems that one eyeball is OK and no more treatment is needed but the other one is still bruised from the operation and needs some TLC, so, more drops to put in her eye, six times a day. Well, there is one that requires one drop four times a day and another that requires one drop twice a day, but not at the same time!

We reckon that it will take another four weeks before going back to the specialist to be checked over again.

A real pain in the eye but it's better than having needles stuck in your eyeball and fluid drained off!

Before all that, we had a wander along the sea shore just before the sun came up but it was hardly worth the trip, a dark pink sky then in comes the cloud and Poof!

It was gone!

In comes the cloud and it was all gone, just like that, mind you Sarn should like this one!
It was later that OTL and TM came home from the hospital and we were rather late in going out for our lunchtime walk.

Yesterday Eric came out with us and today it should have been Monty and Wendy who were walking but they were both asleep, mind you, so was Eric but Miss May was up and bouncing all over the cage.

OTL made a Management Decision and Miss May was dressed up in her harness. It was a rather Loose Fitting 'cos she has lost weight since coming down with Insulinoma but she is responding well to the medication, so, Eric was woken up and dressed as well and off we went.

Miss May hasn't been out for absolutely ages, I think it was September last year was her last run out.

Today she sat on OTL's hand and looked out of the bag, then wriggled to be put down on the grass!

She had a little run, then climbed up OTL's leg for a little carry, then wriggled to be put down again and then ran off towards the sea shore!

Just a little carry, for a moment or two!
Half way across the field she was down and running, then rolling on the grass like wot Holly and I do if there's a sniff there.

You know OTL didn't stop her at all, not like when we do it!

Now, remember yesterday and the Heeland Coo like sniff? Well OTL wouldn't let Holly and I off the lead until we got across the field and well down the path. So, you can just picture it, two woofers on a lead pulling one way, a little ferret pulling another way and a big ferret butt up trying to get back in the bag!

Surprisingly Miss May was having a great time sniffing the sniffs and rolling on the ground, rolling onto her back and kicking her paws in the air!

OTL knew the wouldn't have enough hands and so he had left the camera at home but remembered to bring the phone, so we rattled off a couple of shots.

A good picture of OTL's Wellie and Miss May sniffing a sniff!
Tomorrow Monty and Wendy have been promised a run out, providing it's not pouring down with rain, not even a ferret likes to walk in the rain!

See you tomorrow!


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