Homward Bound

Hello Woofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty MacFerret and we are on our way home!

After a wet start this morning we drove through the rains up through the Mull of Kintyre and across to Loch Lomond then down towards Glasgow and off to Gretna.

Old Two Legs was very kind and stopped a couple of times for us woofers to have wee! Mind you, The Missus says that it was good for us to have a wee but it gave her time to have a wee in the caravan!

Well, she isn't going to hide behind the bushes is she!

We got into Gretna just after lunch and after parking the caravan OTL and TM headed off to the Designer Centre so spend what is left of their holiday money!

I mean, you would think they could have bought us a prezzie or six?

Yeah, six, four ferrets and two woofers! after that there will be the big pile of stuff that OTL

Tomorrow is the long journey but we will be home mid to late afternoon so you won't get any news from us 'cos we will have to unload the caravan and start getting all the stuff sorted that has come in over the last two weeks!

Some things never change but we will be back in September for another two weeks!

See you soon.

Us Again!

Hello Woofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty MacFerret here!

Well, yesterday was the warmest it has been for years and years and years. So, being expert in these matters, we headed for a shady spot and stuck our paws in the air and went back to sleep!

Wake me when it rains!
 I did manage to get a swim in to cool me down but to be honest, it was still as hot as when we first got into the water!

Even my tail got wet!

We found one of those Nelly Fish on the beach and to give you an idea of the size, Old Two Legs put the ball thrower on the ground next to the Nelly Fish!

One mighty big Nelly Fish!
We tried to wind up OTL by telling him we found a very unusual fish on the beach! I mean, it is shaped like a fish and has an eye like a fish but seems to be missing it's fins!

OTL had a look and in the end said it looked more like a leaf!

An ancient fish?
 It was so hot that even The Missus came out for a walk in the sea. Well, she kept her shoes on and at one point was thinking of putting her wellies on!

Go On, put your wellies on, we haven't had a good laugh for ages!
Today it has been totally different, clouds, rain, thunder and more rain!

Even Holly had the shakes when the thunder went off but a cuddle with OTL got rid of them!

What happened to the sun shine and blue sky?
 Today we have spent getting the awning down and all the stuff packed away ready for the trip to Gretna for the first part of the return trip home!

Mind you, we will be having King Plawns and Plawn Clackers and a Bottle of Bubbly, well they can have the bubbly and Holly and I will stick to the Plawn Clackers!

See you tomorrow!

More fun and games!

Hello Woofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty MacFerret here again!

Last night Old Two Legs decided he would stay up and see if he can photograph the Milky Way. The area we are in is supposed to be goof for viewing the Milky Way, providing you have the conditions.

Well, he sat up until one in the morning and waited but as the stars started to appear, the heat haze settled in and there was little to see, so he went to bed, disturbing everyone in the caravan with all his clumping about!

The other lights are two boats (left) lighthouse and house on land!
 Today has been great, the sun has been burning down and Holly and I have been in and out of the river and sea all day!

This is us in the river.

And Holly has even got her paws wet almost up to her tum!
 Holly enjoyed walking up and down the riverside but didn't get a run on, more of a splosh and a paddle!

This is OK providing I don't walk too fast!
 Me, on the other paw was straight into the river chasing a stick all the way over the other side and swimming back with it!

Look! I'm wet all the way from my nose to the tip of my tail!
Of course, one of the benefits of having a beach to hand is that I can have a really good roll in the sand to dry off!

This is GoooooooooooD!
 This afternoon we headed back down to the sea for another dip and spotted this Two Legs who was all on his own not only in the sea but on the beach as well, well, until we got onto the beach as well!

All on his own having a paddle!
 Holly said he was having a walk in the water just to kick the sand up but I reckon he was just lost!

Is he doing a wee in the sea?
 Back at the caravan OTL decided to catch up on the magazines he has yet to read but it wasn't long before he fell asleep and needed to be woken up again!
You have to keep these TL on their toes!

Hey! Those of you who know Chris and her daughter Caz will be pleased to know that Caz has had her operations and the hospital is pleased with her progress and all looks good for the future!

Keep yer tail up Caz Babe, we are all thinking of you and Chrissie Babe!

See you all tomorrow!

Doing some serious relaxing!

Hello Woofers!

Back we comes again, McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty MacFerret!

Archie Babe you are the limit!

Mind you, we did snaffle some sausages last night, The Missus opened up a pack of skinny looking sausages and divided them up between her and Old Two Legs but in the end she couldn't finish them all so Holly and I helped her!

OTL finished all of his so we missed out on a 'Sausage Snaffle' like wot you didn't!

Today has been another 'Doggy Day' cos as soon as OTL finished his chores we got him back down onto the beach with the ball and throwing stick and I was in and out of the water getting soaked to the skin.

After the fun with the ball and the wet stuff, I had a great time rolling in the sand and digging big hole into which I tried to bury the ball.

Holly helped by digging another hole, using her nose, and we buried the ball again then headed off for a good roll in the sand again!

When we got back to the caravan OTL dried us down with our Doggy Towel and all the time OTL was calling us names like, 'Soggy Doggies' and 'Smelly Wet Woofers'!

We didn't care!

After a dry down we then got brushed with our 'Doggy Brush' to help get rid of all the sand but it didn't work, we still had wet sand stuck to our tummy and legs!

It was only after a quick roast in the sun that we dried off enough to get this picture of me and OTL.

I'm shaking the sand over OTL and he is trying to throw me off his lap!

OK, me Tails is dry and my Tum's dry and My Butt is dry, can we do that all again.........Now!
 OTL took us out again and we managed to get another  swim with some sand thrown in as well!

More 'Soggy Doggies' coming up!

See you tomorrow!

It's OTL's Fault!

Hi Woofers!

We're back! McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty MacFerret!

Now, sorry about yesterday, it was OTL playing silly wottsits and watching a DVD until it was just too late to get the computer out! Mind you, it was a lazy sort of day, snoozing and snoozing again!

Now, today is different, after doing all his chores what did he do? Gathered up his camera gear and headed off to the Mull Of Kintyre to photograph landscapes and the Ailsa Craig rock! Mull of Kintyre is supposed to be the furthest south you can get.

Well, he got there and on the way saw Buzzards and loads of 'Little Brown Stuff' but when he got to the end of the road there was a sign!

OK, get out of the car and walk!
Now that bit of stuff in the distance is Northern Ireland. OTL took another shot slightly to the left.

Well, he got as far as the bend and climbed back up, but there is Northern Ireland and no Back Stop!
 Off he went again and found a super spot that shows Ailsa Craig in beautiful colour.

Well, if the mist wasn't there we'd be able to see it!!
Not to be beaten, OTL headed off up the coast a bit and came across the seals basking on the rocks. He is not a seal person so couldn't say if they were Grey Seals or Harbour Seals, however, he did say they reminded him of TM!

It won't be long before they get washed off the rocks!
After they floated away, OTL was keeping an eye open for otters and he spotted a flurry of activity, so, quick as a Ferret, he snapped off a couple of shots but when we opened them up on the computer they turned out to be seals!

It's OK, I've left my Factor 38 on the rocks!
Now what happens when the tide comes in is it drives the wild life closer to the shore and this Grey Heron flew in and perched on the rocks for a while before deciding there was no food and he'd better try further on down the beach!

A nice big fat juicy frog would go down a treat!
 So, after all this charging around the Mull of Kintyre he arrived back at the caravan to a 'Big Woofer Welcome' followed by four trips down to the beach, one with Eric de Ferret and one with Monty and Wendy, then Miss May had a little run followed by Holly and I who sneaked out of the caravan when TM wasn't looking and chased after OTL!

So, not a bad day and it has been sunny for most of the day but the mist and low cloud helped keep the temperature down a little.

See you all tomorrow.

Another Hard Day!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty MacFerret!

You know this holiday lark is such an effort! I mean what is a woofer to do when after a hard run up and down the beach only to find your paws feel like they're on fire?

That's Better!
 Mind you, Holly Chops has the same problem but with a different solution, damp sand!

Cool damp sand and a few wormies casts to tread on!
 Well, that Holly has always been sneaky!

We took Old Two Legs off to the far end of the beach where there were some rocks he could sit on and have a rest, stretch his arms and just enjoy the peace and quiet.

A Peaceful view of our very own beach!
 Well, that was the idea but all of a sudden there was this thumping sound and a load of Two Legs came stomping past, puffing and blowing and sweat dripping off their noses! I mean, they weren't chasing and rabbits, none of them had a woofer on a lead for a 'Fast Walk'!

I mean, they had all gone potty!

The one in yellow stroked the ferrets this morning and she didn't seem potty then!
 Over the next fifteen minutes a load more came plonking by. Some seemed to be enjoying the run while others looked as though they were going to explode! There was one TL who got as far as the stream and knelt down and shoved his head in the water! I mean, there is a limit to this running thing!

Just too many messing up our sand holes!
 When we got back we found The Missus had got out all her three and a half ton of glue, glitter, paint and stuff and was working on The Journal project which is the next project up at the Village Hall!

We thought she said that she would be working on two projects, if so, why is there so much stuff!
 All the ferrets went out for a run today and enjoyed themselves in and amongst the grass, plus, Eric found some rat holes he wanted to investigate but OTL was afraid he might get lost!

 The afternoon was spent snoozing and watching the F1 racing, well most of the race. OTL had problems with his phone, the broadcaster kept telling OTL his subscription had run out!

You know, these TL's can get right upset when they find an electric gizmo won't work and OTL is no different!

He does so rant and rave!

In the end he sorted it out but by then he had missed the start of the race which is always exciting to watch!

Right, we are off to make a nest out the bed, just like Archie Babe, but the ferrets love making a bed out of the bathroom mat, well, ferrets have always been a bit strange!

See you tomorrow!

Busy Doing Nothing!

Hi Woofers!

Back again, McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty MacFerret!

Well, we have had a really lazy day today. The Missus was planning to do some crafting and Old Two Legs planned to head off to do some exploring along the coast a bit but due to them both suffering from Summer Colds they changed their mind and just slobbed around the caravan looking like a right pair of old fogeys!

I mean, such a fuss over a couple of colds, a right pair of Snott & Grott!

Holly and I got our run along the beach  and Holly spotted an island in the mist and asked OTL what it was 'cos it looked just like one of the OTL Bobble Hat!

OK OTL, wot is it?
 To be honest, we knew it would be a long and boring answer to Holly's question! So, off he went with a tale that lasted almost half way along the beach. Ailsa Craig is formed from a volcanic plug from a long extinct volcano believed to be over 500 million years old. It is an archetypal island mountain; Blah, Blah, Blah, and on and on and on!

I was more interested in the little bird that chased us up the beach, I knew what it was, a Ringed Plover, but I wasn't going to ask OTL, I mean, I just didn't have the time to wait for the answer!

Well, I'm a Ringed Plover and my tale is very interesting 'cos..............Oh Gawd, an OTL Birdy!
 Today we went right down the other end of the beach and had to cross a stream to get back onto dry land again. Now, for OTL and I, no problem, a quick jump and a splash and we are across, Holly, on the other paw is a totally different woofer.

Holly is as bad as Archie Babe, she doesn't do wet!

Oi! This is water and it's WET!
 Lucky for Holly Chops, it wasn't too deep and with a couple of quick sploshes she was across so we could go Rock Pooling to see what we could find amongst the rocks!

Look wot we found!............Sea Weed!
Back at the caravan OTL finished his chores and decided to have a rest, however, tomorrow he plans to go exploring, unless it is raining!

See you tomorrow and don't forget, F1 Racing at 14:05hr!

Sun Shine and a Lost Ball!

Hi Woofers!

We are back again, McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty MacFerret!

Now us woofers are good at getting our own way, I mean, we just have to look at our Two Legs and give them 'The Look' coupled with a little Mental Telepathy and Boom, it's done!

For instance.

Now, pay attention, I'll woof this only once!
 I'm quite good at doing the 'Look' and Holly just has to roll her eyes and it's sorted!

Look into my eyes........Look into my eyes!
 When Holly does 'The Look' it is normally something to do with food but with me it is 'Walkies'

Me on our crowded beach!
 One good thing about our beach is that there is a lot of sea before it gets deep and I have to go out a long way before I loose the sandy bottom!

OK, Throw the ball.......I said Throw The Woofing Ball!
 Now, we had great fun throwing the ball and me chasing it but we got into trouble when my paws couldn't find the bottom and I need the bottom to push against the ball 'cos my mouth isn't big enough to get the ball in.

Well, you know what happens, Old Two Legs throws the ball too far, I can't pick it up, my paws are off the bottom and the ball floats off into the sunset!

Anyone seen my ball?
 One thing we did see this afternoon, a Nelly Fish but it's paws were on the bottom of the sea, so it was stuck and we don't think it will swim away 'cos the sea was going out rather than coming in!

A grounded Nelly Fish!
 Now, I bet you didn't know but today is the longest of the year. We didn't get up early to see the sunrise 'cos there were no stone markers to mark the suns progress around the sky. It seem that there are some cairns around here but no stones, funny that!

As OTL says, 'There's Rockall Here'!

He is such a wag!

See you tomorrow!

Today we are getting the Camp Site in order!

Hi Woofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty Mac Ferret here in rainy/sunny Scotland!

Well, there are some Two Legs in this world don't appreciate a woofer with Green Claws! I mean, there he was, helping out with his vast experience and making sure the planty things don't get into trouble and wot thanks does he get?

If it was me, I'd wee over the strawberries just when they get ripe!

Here in sunny Scotland we have been introducing ourselves to the local woofers by threatening them with a Southern Woofer Welcome if the disturb our holiday and the other woofers on site also get a warning if the pass our caravan too closely when they are heading off for a wee!

I've spotted a couple of rabbits and chased after them through the camp site until they disappeared into the brambles!

That's them sorted!

We were up bright and early this morning, mainly because the ferrets snoring woke us up!

Our next job was to wake The Missus to give us our morning walk in the Scottish Sunshine!

A Warm and Sunny Scottish Morning!
 It wasn't too long before the sun shone through the rain and a super Rainbow appeared just behind the camp site!
We couldn't find the pot of gold!
 The instructions for parking the caravan and car plus on which side to have the awning are strictly enforced. OTL had trouble parking the caravan 'cos there was a fire extinguisher in the way, however, OTL came up with the answer, he moved the marker post to the middle of the caravan!

All parked up proper like and TM is about to hang the curtains!
 While OTL cleans the cages, the ferrets get the run of the caravan and Miss May has her medicine and stuff. After that she has her run around and even chases Eric under the door and into the loo!

Good gun especially when TM is using it!

OK, I'm coming, ready or not!
 When Wendy and Monty were let out there was chasing and rampaging all over the place!

A bit of a blurred shot but it was without flash and inside the van!
 Once the van was sorted and the ferrets returned to their cages, Holly and I headed for the beach again. The sky looked like it was going to brighten up but half way through the walk we had to head back to the van again, too much rain!

Yep! Here it comes again!
 TM has started on the first of her two 'Projects' and OTL was commanded to help her take all the stuff she needed out of the caravan and into the awning.

There was loads of stuff, I mean OTL's arms were aching bu the time he finished, and he has to take it all back tonight!

OTL reckons he may be lucky and get the moth trap out over the weekend, that should be fun, Highland Hawk Moths!

See you tomorrow!

We are finally Here!

Hi Woofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty Mac Ferret here at last!

We have finally arrived with no mishaps or any thing that sounds as though it has broken!

On the visit to Campbeltown, towing the caravan, Old Two Legs stopped outside the local distillery and purchased a bottle of their finest giggle juice!

It was a bit of an effort putting up the awning but in the end it was erected, the prayer flags tied in place and the electricity connected!

Today it has been a day to finish off the awning and clean out the ferret cages. This morning Miss May had a small fit and scared us all especially as it was at six thirty in the morning!

OTL sorted her out and after a cuddle and a but of reassurance she drank down her medicine and some Convalescence powder mixed with a drop of Lactose Free Milk and she was back to normal again!

Trying to find an Internetty signal has been a bit of a struggle. OTL and The Missus have been wandering around the site, laptop in hand searching for a signal!

Trouble is, the signal keeps disappearing and then returning!

You know what? TM knows a load of swear words that we never knew she knew!

We blame it on FaceAche!

Once we have settled down and got it all sorted OTL has promised to do some photo's.

So, hang on to your dialling digits and we will be back tomorrow with some tales of daring do's of us on the beach!


McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty Mac Ferret!

We're Here!

Hi Woofers!

McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty Mac Ferret here!

Well, we have had some fun today. The trip up to Gretna was great, especially when we were pulling faces at the truck drivers! We sung our 'Archie Babe' song as we passed but we didn't hear anything, Holly reckons he was too busy chasing the vet around town!

We stopped at the Motorway Services where we normally stop, they are the only services that have a good woofer walking area where we can have a good sniff, wee and a poo!

Another advantage is we get to park up in the truck parking area, loads of space and enough grass for the ferrets to have a run!

It's good fun watching the truck drivers watching Old Two Legs walking the ferrets! They just didn't believe that Eric McFerret could blow a raspberry at them!

OTL didn't have time to take any photographs today.

Now, we are off to see if the Chinese Takeaway is open or are we stuck with battered sausage and chips!

We should arrive tomorrow around midday so we'll tell yoou more tomorrow!


McDaisy, McHolly, MacMay, MacWendy, Eric McFerret and Monty Mac Ferret.

Eric was reported as 'Lost!'

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, it's been all go today, Eric came out for a walk this morning, leaving Miss May at home to catch up on her snoozing!

There is and are where Eric just loves to dive into the grass and wild flowers. He went so far under the flowers that Old Two Legs had to follow him, undo the lead and pull it out before hooking him up to the lead again!

Mind you, Eric is getting very caring as far as us woofers are concerned, he has started to climb down from OTL's arms and stands there waiting for Holly and I to pass before chasing after us!

Back home we have been loading and stacking and packing and sneaking in some extra nibbles for the journey!

Eric and May have the run of the house while OTL cleans their cage and normally, when the cage is ready for them to move back in, May can be found hiding in the Pinny Box when The Missus keep all her pinafores.

Eric is normally found snoozing on my bed!

Today Eric wasn't where he normally is and what is more, he didn't come running when he heard OTL waving the 'Squeaky Chicken' toy that make a terrible noise! OTL was hunting all over the place, behind the chairs, under the furniture and even in the washing bin where the clothes are stored before getting washed!

OTL was getting worried.

All the rubbish bins were checked, the storage bins in TM's workspace were all emptied and reloaded.

Then OTL had an idea.

He checked the travel cage on top of Monty and Wendy's cage and there, curled up, with his eyes tightly shut, snoring his tail off was little Eric all worn out after the run this morning!

TM has been marching in and out of the caravan with clothes and 'Improtant Stuff' like DVD's and Crafting Stuff.

OTL always gets worried when she starts to load all her stuff in the caravan 'cos he reckons that the axles might break!

This afternoon  we went out for a walk, in the rain, but it didn't last long and we decided that we will have snooze before finishing off the loading!

The sun came out just as we arrived and we went hunting the bunnies, just to let them know they have two weeks off!

Two Weeks, that's all you got, then we'll be back!
 Holly was pretending she had told all the other woofers where the rabbits hide, so they had better stay in their holes until we come back!

Yeah, the big woofer with the teeth will be after you!
 Not that the rabbits believed us, you could hear them laughing and saying the Highland Bunnies would 'Sort us out', yeah, you and who's army!

When we are up there can I get OTL to buy us a set of bagpipes?
So, everything is almost done and we are planning an early night then we're off!

See you tomorrow!


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

And don't forget the Baby Wipes!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, what a day! We have been making a big pile of stuff in the lounge, just where the front door is. Loads of camera gear and moth traps and cages and so much stuff we have had to stuff some of it under the stairs! Reminds me of Harry Potter!

The sun has been in and out today and our morning walk was interesting 'cos we could see both of the Thames Anti Aircraft gun sites!

Normally we can only see one site!

There is a lot of strange stuff off our shores, mostly loud and dangerous!
 Back home Holly got her claws trim trimmed and the hair cut from around her paws. She doesn't like being trimmed so made a bit of a fuss and Old Two Legs was having to hold her down while he clipped the hair away. Mind you, after Holly got done OTL did himself and gave himself a hair cut and a beard trim!

He looks almost bald now!

Mind you, bald is his 'natural state'!

Lunchtime we went out again and OTL spotted a Bunny but didn't tell us!

 The rabbit saw us, ran into the bushes and then ran out again when we didn't chase it!

We came across a woofer who had lost his Two Legs but as he was asking us if we had seen his TL we heard the TL calling from over the other side of the bushes!

I don't like it when I loose my TL!
 Mind you, a woofer should always know where the TL is, even if the TL doesn't know where the woofer is!

We are going to sort out the DVDs tonight and see what we will take!

See you tomorrow!

Last Working Day!

Hello Woofers!

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

Well, we have woken up to some sunshine and blue skies! It wasn't too cold and although there were clouds, there weren't many!

It beats the rain!
 It was fun walking through the forest with the sun shining through the trees.

It maybe pretty but I can still sniff Rabbits!
 There weren't many insects around, maybe it was because of the rain yesterday. We saw just one small butterfly and a couple of hover flies and that was it, maybe there will be more tomorrow, providing it stays sunny!

Almost an insect free zone!
 Holly says that she likes pictures of the trees and long grass, just for a change!

Here we go, just for Holly Chops, no Insects, Woofers or Rabbits or even Two Legs!
 Mind you, it can't last forever and before long Old Two Legs found a couple of Woofers enjoying a sniff!

I've sniffed that one before!
Tomorrow The Missus is off to the village hall for the last Crop before we go away, so, that means we can start getting all our stuff downstairs ready for loading into the caravan. The ferrets have been arguing over which cuddle cup they will take away and Eric was having 'discussions' with Monty over what squeaky ball they could take with them!

 Tomorrow OTL will be loading up all the camera stuff and the moth trap. Then the next is Woofer Stuff followed by Ferret Stuff then it's OTL Stuff!

Right, I sniff dinner so I'd better get down stairs before that Holly chops eats it all!

Bye for now.


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