We are in a disaster zone!

Hi Woofers!

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


Yesterday the water sort of lost it's strength as it was coming out of the tap and it was a funny puddle colour!

Old Two Legs reported that the 'Water Men' were digging up the road and the places where the water pipe ran into our village.

It seems that our pipes are a little old and every time they repair a section and turn on the water, another bit of the pipe leaks and we are back to leaky pipes again!

OTL got sent out to buy some bottled water at the Co-Op so we can have clean water to drink but OTL and The Missus will have to shower in the muddy water!

OTL says it reminds him of the last time he was in Tanzania and the country had run out of stuff for the filter at the local reservoir!

We love hearing some of his stories, they always start off with 'Jambo Bwana'!

Well, while we face the possibility of our village turning into a desert with the lack of water OTL decided that we should 'Keep Calm' and carry on as normal, which means it's walkies time!

Loads of sniffs and the hawthorn blossom is just bursting out all over!
When we get to the top of the hill and look down towards the car park we can hardly see the car because of the blossom!

Well, it's down there somewhere!
As we headed back to the car Holly found a super sniff that just called out for a roll and even though OTL called out in his best 'Souff Londun' accent, 'Gerrtcha Smelly Mutt!' Holly took no notice and got a good wriggle in before OTL got anywhere near her!

Holly does take chances sometimes!
Now, it may be coincidence but, our super duper incredibly expensive nearly new kettle has suddenly stopped working.

Now we are not saying it was the fault of the Water Men but it is a strange coincidence that they both went wrong at the same time!

So, this afternoon TM and OTL headed off to the store where it was purchased from and TM had a 'meaningful' chat with the 'Fault Department'!

Being that TM spent many many years in retail she knows the process inside out and started off by dragging the manager over the counter by the scruff of his shirt collar and telling him the kettle was 'FAULTY'!

Oooo! She can be so persuasive sometimes!

The man reckons the kettle will be back, repaired or a replacement in about fourteen days!

TM has this effect on shop managers!

OTL has got a pile of stuff to get done tonight so I'm going to let him have the computer back and say bye bye for now!

See you tomorrow.
