First Day of Summer!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, let's all jump for joy! The Summer has arrived with a raspberry!

As a special treat for Old Two Legs, we woke him up a whole hour sooner than normal but actually it was the right time but just an hour earlier!

I can sympathise with OTL, I think all this fiddling about with the clocks is all wrong, they should leave it all set for GMT all year long and if you want to get up earlier to milk the cows, the get up earlier and leave up Town Woofers to sleep!

Us woofers have decided that we don't like being fiddled with!

Take this morning, up we get and OTL was up and wandering about in the dark looking for the camera 'cos he reckons there could be a sunrise worthy of photographing but when we got down to the sea shore what did we get?

North Wind and waves crashing onto the mud!
Well, so much for the Summer Sunrise, more like the morning foggy foggy dew!

Even when we turned towards the fort it didn't get any better, it looked right miserable!

The river flows from right to left but the wind is blowing it from left to right!
 That was it, we didn't hang around too long, the wind was getting right up Holly's tail so she decided to get back to the car at double quick time!

Lunchtime wasn't much better, it was lighter but equally as cold and windy. We walked through the trees looking for anything interesting but all the birds were hiding in amongst the bushes and ivy.

I'll be glad when the sun comes back!
 Looking back out to sea the weather had not changed a bit, it was still blowing from the north and there were more whit horses on the sea.

I think to best place is back on our bed snoozing the afternoon away!
Now, you know that Miss May has Insulinoma, well, it has made her loos a bit of weight and she is all skin and bone. The medicine that the vet prescribed has made her put on a bit of weight but OTL plans to fatten her up and has purchased some Convalescence Poweder that you mix with a drop of Lactose Free Milk until it is all creamy. Now, this stuff is supposed to help fatten her up a bit and OTL has been told that all ferrets just love the stuff!

With a bit of luck it should arrive on Monday and then we will see if Miss May slurps it all down as she is supposed to. It will be good to hide her crushed tablet in as well, once we have found out if she likes the stuff!

If she doesn't like it you can bet your tail that Eric will eat it all!

Today Eric has managed to pinch three of the 'Smoothies' that The Missus had hidden on her desk. TM managed to rescue one smoothie but the other two have gone!

I suppose we will have to start looking under all the furniture for the stolen goods!

See you tomorrow.

Last day of Spring!

Hello Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here on what is the Last Day of Spring!

Yep! Tomorrow when we wake up in will be an whole hour earlier and it will be officially Summer Time!

As it's an hour earlier Old Two Legs reckons there will be a good chance of a sunrise instead of the view we have today!

Not the best we've seen!
 Mind you, without the sun and just the morning mist to play with we got this moody shot!

Yeah! This ones for Archie Babe!
 Going through the wooded bit we could see the ground plants have put a bit of a spurt on and are getting their blossom out before the trees block out all the Light!

Who knows what insects will be here this year?
 Climbing up out of the woods and up to where the rabbits normally are, we found nothing, not even a birdie flapping about. They must have heard OTL calling us and it was him that scared them off this time and not us!

Not our fault this time, it was OTL wot dun it!
 Heading back towards the car park OTL spotted a small bird right up the top of a tree and using the maximum lens setting he snapped this robin wot was telling any other birdy's to stay away from his tree!

Clear Orf you lot, this is MY TREE!
 Lunchtime it was Wendy and Monty who came out with us and the sun was shining and it was super warm as well.

We saw the biggest fly basking in the sunshine and it had a sort of burnished bronze colour on it's back. Can't say I've seen that one before!

We'll have to keep an eye open for this again!
This afternoon we watched the F1 Racing Qualifying and judging by the results, we are expecting a good race tomorrow!

We're off to see what's for dinner, Doggy Scoff I think, still, there is always OTL's dinner to try for!

Bye for now!

We have been pigging out today!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a sunny day it has been, except of course first thing this morning when there was ice on the windscreen and on the leaves of the low down weeds!

We were a little early in getting out and Old Two Legs remembered to bring the camera with him and he snapped off a view over the marshlands and over to the east where the sun had just got up!

A bit of Ground Mist!
 As we walked around OTL just had to take a photo of the Daffy Dillies. He took another that was a close up of the bloom but we preferred the 'Two Bloom' shot!

Two blooms is better than one!
 Another thing we spotted was the crow gathering sticks to build the nest with. Mind you, it's a good job Holly and I don't bother with all that nest building, we got our beds already made up for snoozing!

It's a busy time for the birdies!
 Lunchtime it was just great in the sunshine and today May and Eric came out with us. May was the most energetic and she was running all over the place.

We still had to wait for them 'cos our legs are longer than ferret legs. Mind you, Eric did manage to get a lift in the ferret bag!

Do you think if we gave them a woof they might hurry up?
 Back on the football fields Holly and I were doing our broad sweep looking for sniffs and May and Eric decided they would try to creep up on us!

No chance! But it was fun watching them try, just before we ran off to the car!

OK, you go left and I'll go right and we'll get them!
Saturday tomorrow and the clocks go forward an hour between Saturday and Sunday!

We prefer it when the clocks go back 'cos it feels like we are gaining an hour but this going forward means we have lost an hour and we don't like loosing time!

See you tomorrow!

The weekend is a coming!

Hi Woofers!

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

We love Thursday 'cos it is so close to Friday which is the beginning of the weekend! The weekend means TV watching and paws up on the sofa and generally enjoying ourselves.

That is if The Missus is going to see her mates up at the village hall!

This mornings walk was boring 'cos the sun had been up for ages and it was so overcast that Old Two Legs didn't even take his camera with him!

Lunchtime was better as Miss Wendy and Monty came out with us. They haven't been out for a little while and it made a pleasant change to get them out in the fresh air.

One good thing is that they walk a lot quicker than Eric!

Being that they are both on leads they have to go over the same sniffs, unlike Holly and I, we can go and find our own sniffs and then decide if we want to share!

Hey, look, two sniffy slugs!
 It's fun sometime just to listen to them discussing sniffs!

OK, interesting sniff but I wouldn't eat it!
 Now, us woofers like to leave our 'Calling Card' so other woofers know we have been there but the ferrets don't do that. Mainly 'cos there are no wild ferrets around here, just weasels!

Oh No! Your not going to do a wee on the sniff?
 That's what it was like all the way back to the car! Wendy had to get a carry 'cos she said that she was a little exhausted as she hasn't been out and was a little unfit!

As they are on separate leads they can wander from side to side of the path which means that OTL is forever stepping over their leads and it looks like he is dancing!

That's the last time I tell you about the sniff!
There was some new piles of earth shoved up into Mole Hills and both Wendy and Monty had a good dig and snuffle through it all!

Of course, there were no moles there and OTL says that they might be miles away hiding down the other end of the field!

Still, we gave it a good sniff and the ferrets did their digging and finally, just to show we were there, Holly did a wee on the hill!

Miss May was a bit put out being left behind but spent the afternoon rampaging around her cage and waking Eric up by jumping on top of him!

All this running around, May caught her claw in the bedding so that caused OTL to help her unhook her claw and then he rolled her on her back, put the bottle of Ferretone across her tummy and while she was slurping away, OTL clipped her claws with his nail clippers!

TL says he is going to try the Moth Trap he got for Christmas. The weather is warmish and there have been signs of insects buzzing around, so, who knows, there might just be a moth or two!

He's going to get his camera and macro lens set up ready for tomorrow!

See you tomorrow!

He's back to work again!

Hello Woofers!

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

Us woofers have a hard life you know, we are on duty all the time, ready at an instance to woof at anyone who walks past the house, anyone who posts anything through the letterbox including those begging leaflets that want you to put out all your clothes in bags!

There ain't no one going to touch our blankets and bedding!

Last night we got our rewards, Old Two Legs treated us all to a Chinese take a way, so that means loads of Plawn Clakers and King Plawns and the other stuff that comes with the chow main and noodly stuff!

I must admit, all that lot and a bottle of giggle juice, we all slept well last night!

There was no wind this morning and we were expecting a bit of frost but it was mild and we didn't mind walking through the grass 'cos it was reasonably dry!

We chased a couple of rabbits but to be honest, they were too far ahead to catch, so we made do with just woofing at them!

Lunchtime Eric and May came out with us and although there wasn't any sun, it was mild, so Eric didn't mind having a trot along the sea shore and he even had a game of chase with May!

Eric was supposed to count up to one hundred before he started off but he can't count further than ten and May said that was no excuse and he was cheating!

OK, coming, ready or not!
 Mind you, May is not above bending the rules, she ran behind OTL's wellies and climbed up his leg so she could hide in the ferret bag!

Stay there OTL, I'm coming!
This afternoon OTL had to go out working, something about reprogramming a radio, still, it kept him busy for most of the afternoon!

Hey, we didn't tell you 'cos we published yesterdays blog before we found out, but, The Missus got a card from Izzy and the gang wishing TM a happy birthday.

We have snaffled it from TM's mail box to show you. The only questions in, just what was being waved near the camera lens to get them all to look at the same time?

Happy Birthday to you, here's some old Yorkshire poo!
See you all tomorrow!


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

Tuesday, 26 March 2019

It's all happening today!

Hi Woofers!

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

We have given up trying to work out what the yellow flowers belong to, it makes out brain hurt trying to pronounce the Latin names!

It's almost as bad as that Alexa thingy, I mean, what's the point of having a thing you give instructions to that then ignores you and goes off to do summat else!

Mind you, we do that to Old Two Legs, he says SIT and we stand, then he says COME HERE and we run off chasing rabbits!

Holly and I are going to change our names to Alexa-1 and Alexa-2!

Now, pay attention, today is The Missuses birthday and she is numpity two years old. Being the bossy sort, she got her birthday prezzie from OTL early. so, OTL had to get here a surprise pressie.

A Niffler!

Well, this is not a real one, it's a cuddly toy Niffler!

TM seemed pleased and spent the morning cuddling the Niffler which is OK by us, just as long as it is a toy and not a real one in disguise!

This morning we were out for a walk and you know there was ice on the windscreen!

We saw a ship come a bit close to the shore, Holly said it didn't have it's headlights on!

Mind the wreck out there!
As the sun came up the ice melted and then everything was wet and damp!

We met up with that Bozo who just loves a game with OTL but is scared of Holly and I, soppy sat down and then said that the grass was wet! Of course it's wet, the ice had melted!

I gotta wet butt!
 Back home we looked in the pond and saw that the flog splawn had all changed and there was a big ball of Taderly Poles wriggling their way around in the sun!

Taderly Poles!
 You know, if they all grow into flogs then we won't have enough room in the garden for them and us!

Lunchtime we were out again but this time the wind had dropped and the sun was still out, so May and Eric came out for a run. It was Monty and Wendy's turn to come out but they were fast asleep so OTL left them snoozing the day away!

Miss May loves the new mow grass and spends all her time rolling around on it!

Shift over, my turn for a roll!
 It's good to see Eric run along side May, sort of keeping her running in a straight line!

Come on girl, left paw down a bit!
Now, as we mentioned earlier, today is M's Birthday and you all know what happens on birthdays?

All together, on the count of seven hundred and three   1   12      703          Keep UP!

Happy birthday to you
Here's a bucket of poo
Stick it all in your porridge
Happy Birthday to you!

Hey! OTL has been reading the instructions for the new TV and has found a menu to set up 'Voice Commands'! Can you imagine it? OTL will be calling for one program and TM will be calling for cardy stuff, poor TV will give up and explode with too much instructions!

And you thought Alexa was trouble!

Bye bye for now!


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

Monday, 25 March 2019

The new TV is arriving today!

Hello Woofers!

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

Wot a super sunny day today, shame about the freezing north wind that was blasting in from the arctic!

It was OK when we were in amongst the bushes, they sort of protected us from the wind and we took a second look at the yellow flowers.

Old Two Legs doesn't do flowers and stuff like that so, with all the helpful hints we have decided that the plant is called a 'Laburnumjaponicaforsythiahoneysuckle'!

There we go, it's a 'Laburnumjaponicaforsythiahoneysuckle' so everyone is right!
 Now, looking through the trees and the bushes we can see that the ivy is creeping up the tree trunks and OTL has just announced that he knows wot all the trees are.............wood!

He is such a wag!

Yeah, OK, so they are made of wood..........and?
 OTL saw a pigeon making a nest but we think he may be a bit early, like, there are no leaves on the trees to camouflage him and the nest!

Fine views from the top floor!
 The leaves are slowly bursting but the view through the trees is still quite interesting, like, you can see the birds flying through the trees!

OK, who can spot the eagle?
 Once again Holly messed up the rabbit hunt, OTL stopped us from racing ahead and slowly crept up the hill until his head poked over the top of the hill. He had a look and spotted a couple of rabbits and was about to point which way we should run to intercept them when Holly rushed past him and went in the wrong direction!

The trouble with Holly Chops is that she is just won't listen to instructions!
I told you to wait didn't I?
 I was not a Happy Puppy, I mean for a couple of seconds we could have had a good chance of nabbing a Bunny Tail for breakfast but because of her all we got was out of breath!

I know she is my sister but there are times I wish I was an only pup!
OK, now for the good news, the TV is about an hour away, well that's what the delivery man said who telephoned OTL a couple of minutes ago. Looking at the clock that is about the time we post this blog, so, you will have to wait until tomorrow before we can show off about the wonderful colours and the screen size and just how fast the valves warm up!

See you tomorrow!


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

A Sunday Drama!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a super sunny day it's been here in North Kent!

Mind you, it has be a little 'Fraught' and I'll tell you all about it!

It starts off yesterday when the TV wouldn't switch on, there was sound coming out but no pictures. So, Old Two Legs, being an all round handy sort of Two Legs played about with the controller and found that nothing happened when he pressed the buttons. So, he did what any TL genius would do and he re booted the whole system.

Well, yesterday it worked and the picture came back an hey presto we could watch TV until late last night when we all went to bed.

Now, next Tuesday is The Missuses Birthday and she is numpity two years old which is a good age for a Two Legs. So, to celebrate she has demanded a load of card manufacturing stuff which she will need on Sunday to follow something on the TV.

So, instead of getting her prezzie on Tuesday she beats OTL up and gets it on Sunday!

No surprises on her birthday!

This morning she set about getting everything ready for this Thingy and switched the TV on.

TV no work, we could hear the voices but no picture!

TM now starts to get into a bit of a panic. OTL starts to get ear ache, us woofers head back to bed where it's safe!

OTL does a reboot and heads off with Holly and I saying that it will probably come on in a while.

Down amongst the bushes we chased a rabbit but lost him and OTL found some Honey Suckle that had blossomed!

Well, we think it's Honey Suckle!
 OTL didn't stick his nose in the bloom, just in case it started his hay fever off early in the year!

We went off sniffing for more rabbits but they had all gone!

Not a sniff to be found!
Back home we found the TV was still unwell, in fact it looked terminal, seriously terminal!

Holly and I were sitting up at the bedroom window watching the world go by when who should be marched out? OTL! Off to get another TV before the appointed hour!

It was an hour later that they returned, without a TV!

Seems that the one they wanted wasn't in stock so OTL had to pay for it and have it delivered on Monday.

We will be looking forward to getting all set up for Monday evening viewing and we will have to have a DVD selected to prove it is as good at the sales man says it is!

Lunchtime we took May and Eric out for a run and being Sunday there were loads of TL's walking out in the sunshine. Of course there were those who wanted to play with the ferrets and stroke them and have their picture taken holding May or Eric!

The best part of the walk was meeting up with some of our mates.

Yo Scruff! How's yer Woofing!
 Scruffs mate was with him and we call him Yappy, now Yappy thinks OTL is great and always comes to him for a cuddle!

 So, here we are, the only TV is in OTL's office and TM has to watch TV on her computer. Us woofers reckon it's a good thing to have a bit of peace and quiet for a while!

See you tomorrow!


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

Saturday, 23 March 2019

A Binge Day today!

Hi Woofers!

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

You know, we just love Saturdays, I mean, we get up at the normal time but when we are out walking Old Two Legs lets us choose where we want to go.

Sometimes we go across the grass land and down to the sea shore and other times we decide to go through the forest and in and out of the bushes.

Take today, Holly decided to chase a rabbit, only she couldn't find a rabbit even though she had a good ferret around the bushes!

We did however find a Hawthorn tree with the blossom still on and traces of blossom that had fallen onto the ground!

Come on, have a dance in the blossom petals!
Holly reckons she is dancing over the petals but I reckon it could be better described a 'Lolloping'!

Still, it did look pretty!

The Blossom, not Holly's dancing!

OTL didn't have his big camera with him just the phone with a camera built in and he got close enough to take this shot.

Not bad for OTL!
Now, as you know, OTL was up the village hall doing some glue slapping and we got a message on the phone.........'Rosie is here'!

Well, when we told Wendy she got all excited at the prospect of having a cuddle from Rosie!

Lunchtime we took both Monty and Wendy out for a walk but we didn't go chasing any rabbits!

Wendy was in a rush to get back to the village hall to see Rosie and by the time we got there, Wendy was all worn out!

Mind you, that didn't stop Wendy and Monty from getting a cuddle!

Back home OTL gave us a brush to help get rid of the knots  in our hair and he even managed to give Hollies dew claw a trim, normally Holly goes potty 'cos like me, she doesn't like her claws being cut!

Horrid thing to happen!

All this attention means that a bath and a hair cut is looming on the horizon together with a blow dry from that horrid jet powered blaster!


See you tomorrow!


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

P.S.  We binged out of the Game of Thrones recordings and have almost caught up with the latest episodes!

More Guarding Duties!

Hi Woofers!

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

We have been busy today, It starts off with us getting a run along the sea shore and into the woods. There were loads of sniffs and we even found a dead rat!

Hey! there is some rabbit poo here!  Never mind that, I've found a dead rat under this bush!
 Old Two Legs wouldn't let us play with the poo or the rat, he's no fun any more!

We spotted more catkins bursting out!
 We were going to run up the hill but OTL held us back and crept up ahead of us, stopped, looked over the top of the hill and gave our secret call which says there is a rabbit or two just ahead of him!

Well, we were off like a couple of puppy rockets and chased these rabbits all the way down the hill and into the bushes!

Then we lost them!

I'm sure they went in here!
 After Holly and I had a ferret about we decided that they had got away and we should rejoin OTL but Holly was limping a bit. It seems that she managed to pick up a thorn in her paw and OTL had to spend some time digging it out!

It's a good job OTL knows how to pull these thorns out or Holly would be limping all the way home!

Back on the football field we met up with a big soppy woofer who wanted a game but his Two Legs wouldn't let him loose.

We think the TL is a bit of a grumpy 'cos OTL normally has to say 'Good Morning' at least twice before he answers!

I've been told not to talk to other woofers!
 For most of the day OTL has either been working or cleaning Ferret Cages! However, we were left in charge when he went off to see one of his customers, so, we managed to woof at everyone who came close to the front of the house, that was until everyone came back home, The Missus included!

Tomorrow TM is off to her glue sloshing, so we have a relaxing day ahead of us and we have promised to go easy on the nibbles, well Holly has anyway!

See you tomorrow!


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

Heart Broken OTL!

Hello Woofers!

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

The weather has been the same as yesterday, a slight breeze, a bit of a chill and slightly damp under paw!

Yesterday we left the ferrets at home and Old Two Legs took the camera out with him but today both Eric and May were wide awake and climbing up the cage waiting to go out with us!

So, the only camera was on OTL's phone.

We had to look hard to find some interesting shots but this one we reckon to be quite pretty, I mean, it looks like a fairy archway!

A Fairy Arch but we don't see any Fairies!
 The buds we saw yesterday were busting out all over and you could see the leaves slowly unwrapping themselves!

It's OK busting out but this going around in circles makes me dizzy!
 On some plants you could see that the leaves were almost in shape to start working!

Now, just a flutter and it'll be fully open!
OTL got a message from the vets to collect the pills for May and the prescription for Holly and I.

Poor lad came back sobbing, his wallet was all worn out!

Still, us woofers will be OK for the next six months or so!

See you tomorrow!


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

It's The Pill time!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, I hope you were all up early this morning to enjoy a dance around the garden to celebrate the Spring Equinox?

Holly, The Missus and I were up around four but we didn't see TM dancing around the garden, I think that it was 'cos Old Two Legs told her last night that if she went out prancing around the garden in her night dress she would scare all the Floggs and the Neyburzz!

We headed off early for our morning walk and today we left the ferrets in bed except for Eric who got up for a slurp of Ferretone before going back to bed to give Miss May a cuddle!

Mind you, the sunrise wasn't that impressive!

Not really impressive!
 What was impressive is the stuff that has started to bloom. We came across these buds bursting and some lichen getting some Spring colour!

Spring is busting out all over!
 There were some other buds bursting but we don't know the name of this tree!

Here is a quandary, wot's this plant?
 Now, we know wot this is, it's a Catkin!

Well, it looks like one and already the insects hare having a feast on the pollen!

Luverly Grub!
 As OTL brought the big camera with us we were able to get a good shot of the fort in the middle of the river!

Anyone there?
 Wot was pretty was the Daffy Dillies that were steaming along and getting the blooms out!

More Daffy Dillies along the path!
 Holly and I went looking for that rabbit but it stayed tucked up in bed, wimp!

OTL dropped into the vets to get a prescription all the medication we need, just before we left home TM asked him if he had his handkerchief with him, just to mop up the tears!

Silly TM, OTL doesn't have to pay until Friday!

See you all tomorrow!


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