Holly works it out!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here.

Now, you know how clever Holly Chops is? OK, we know that she is a bit of a 'Piggly Pup' with her liking of food, but, she does sometimes come up with good idea's!

Yesterday was the other 'First Day of Spring' and a few days ago we were thinking that we had seen the last of the sunrise colours over Sheerness.


Holly Chops has been thinking!

Old Two Legs gets up at six to take us out for our morning walk and all we see of the sunrise now depends of the Fiddly Diddly things OTL does with the camera controls.

A Fiddly Diddly Sunrise!
 Now, what would it be like if OTL got up at five?

Would he see a colourful sunrise?

We reckon he would be on a winner. More than that, the clocks are going forward so we will be getting up a whole hour earlier!

Holly says that we will get some more sunrises for a month or so!

Clever little smarty pants woofer she is!

This morning we missed the sunrise but still ended up looking at the blossom.

It's Spring!
 We also found some more blossom brightening up our walk through the bushes.

We think this is Gorse!
Lunchtime we were down the Sea Wall again and the sun was shining and there was a gentle breeze blowing, wot a change from this morning and a few days ago!

This is better!
 Just for fun, Holly was dragging her tail sniffing the sniffs, so, OTL and I had to wait on the bench until she decided to join us!

Now that the sun has arrived, OTL warned me that the time is getting close when we will be getting a shampoo and set!

...but I'm getting to like this 'Hairy' look!
See you all tomorrow!

It's the first day of Spring and I try a Three Legged Wee!

Hi Woofers!

We are back, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!

Well lads, we have been out today and can confirm, it's a bit warmer!

It's also still windy but there is no rain!

Old Two Legs was up later than normal and we ended up bumping into some of the early morning woofers who we haven't seen for a while.

OTL also spotted some Hawthorn Blossom on the tree by the side of the path down to the Sea Wall.

Spring is starting!

When we got down to the Sea Wall the sun was well up but OTL went all Fiddly Diddly with the camera controls and managed this shot.

Not the most colourful but full of drama!
Holly is suffering from Conjunctivitis again and it's lucky that OTL got two tubes of stuff for her eyes last time she went to the vet. So this morning we had some 'Eye Washing' which Holly hates, then after drying her chops OTL squirted the stuff into her eyes.

After that is was down for a snooze before the lunchtime walk. However, we got interrupted by the delivery man bringing OTL's new mobile phone, nothing
fancy or expensive but it was free, OTL likes free, it's one of his favourite prices!

Unless he is doing the selling, then 'free' is a foreign language!

Lunchtime we were off again and this time we parked up by the football field, the one with the moles!

In the distance we could see a couple of woofers and a Two Legs walking across the field. Suddenly one dog stopped, looked our way, then came tearing across the field at top speed!

It was that Bozo woofer who has fallen in love with OTL and insists on giving OTL a big welcome whenever he sees OTL!

Yo! OTL!
 He ran around OTL three times and then legged it back to his TL.

As I said, he's a Bozo!

It was still windy down on the beach and this time the tide was in.

Just little white horses!
 Now, remembering what Archie Babe said about weeing down yer leg, I decided to try waving one of my legs while weeing.

It didn't work, the wind was coming in the wrong direction!

'ere! My leg feels all warm and wet!
Holly said that only boy woofers stood on three legs and they were always being messy and us Lady Woofers should stick to four paws on the ground!

My leg's gone all wet and cold now!
So, that little experiment went all wrong!

See you all tomorrow!

So, where is the sun?

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, I don't know about you but we thought that it was going to be warmer today, I mean, those weather people where right about the cold front but they have got the warm front wrong!

We were out early this morning and headed down to the sea front. No one else was around and the way the wind was blowing we didn't expect to see anyone!

There wasn't much of a sunrise either, maybe the sun was too cold to get out of bed!

Not even a glimmer!
The wind was blowing us along the path and to have a wee was a bit dangerous 'cos the wind was trying to blow our wee onto our legs!

Damp doggy's or wot!
That is hardly worth looking at!
Last night there was supposed to be a big Aurora lighting the night sky but down here there was clouds, clouds and even more clouds!

So, no pictures of Aurora over Sheerness today!

Lunchtime Old Two Legs had to go to the dentist for a checkup and you know what that means, yep, back he came, all poor, skint and snivelling!

The dentist has done it again, what was supposed to be just a checkup has turned into 'A little remedial work'!

Let's hope that will make him forget about our haircut!

Crossed claws for warmer weather!

See you tomorrow.

It's a bit chilly today!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, after yesterdays fun and games we were wondering if today the snow would all melt and it would get warmer.

The snow is still here and the wind makes it a bit colder than yesterday!

Ho Hum!

Although there was very little snow landing on us, the roads were one big ice rink around here. We didn't even go down to the sea side 'cos Old Two Legs didn't fancy driving the car. You see, we are normally the last place to get and salt or grit when it snows and there are a number of rather dodgy spots when ice gathers and they just happen to be where there are ditches on both sides of the road!

So, that was it, we got a walk over the football field and across the field!

When we got behind the trees it wasn't so bad but once into the open it felt like we were going to get our tails blown off or frozen!

We have still evaded the dreaded wash and haircut. Can you imagine us with 6mm of hair in this weather?

So, we had to put up with being brushed and de tangled and OTL is still telling us that as soon as the weather changes then out comes the electric shaver!

One thing about the wash is the drying, you know, that jet powered 'Dog Blaster'.

We got some ear protectors delivered and OTL is expecting us to wear this thing over our ears to help reduce the 'Scary Bit' when he dries us!

I tried it on this afternoon, I was not impressed!

OK, this is one side!

And this is the other side!
 Then, just for a change, OTL took the small Hoodie off me and put the big one over my ears!

OK, it's bigger and it comes half way down my neck!
You know, I could wear this as a scarf over my ears when we go out in the cold. Together with my Flying Jacket I'd be right warm!

Well, it would keep my neck warm in the cold wind!
 OTL took it off me and I managed to get back under the desk and onto my bed!

This is much better and I've got my ball as well!
So, that has been it for today, windy, cold and snow on the ground, just a dusting but still blooming cold!

If the clouds part tonight we may see some Aurora in the sky, but being so far south it will be low on the horizon, so don't expect miracles!

See you tomorrow!

Brass Monkey Time Again!

Yo Woofers!

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

Last night it was all warm and Spring like but today when we woke up, brrrr, the cold weather had reached us!

We should have stayed in bed like wot Archie Babe is doing and cuddled up but Old Two Legs said we need the exercise and if we didn't, he did!

Let's hope Archie Babes sitting on Auntie Elaine's head has worked, you see it is a well known woofer healing trick that us woofers know and keep to ourselves. Ferrets do the same thing but they are not as warm as us woofers!

We got to the Sea Wall and the wind was terrible, it brought rain lashing in that suddenly changed to snow and threatened to blow our tails off!

There is snow in them there clouds!

 Holly and I got halfway through the walk and decided having done our business we were heading back to the car and home!

Poor OTL got left behind!

We knew that OTL planned to give us both a wash and haircut but after getting home the elecamatricity power failed! No elecamatricity means no shower means no hair clippers means no haircut!


The only down side was that OTL couldn't have a cup of tea and he had to take the camping stove and cans of gas up to the village hall so The Missus and her glue slapping ladies can have a hot tea or coffee!

No thought about poor freezing OTL and us woofers, no heating, no warm drink and OTL's home made soup had icebergs floating on the top, so he had to put up with a marmite sarnie!

Half way through the afternoon the power came on again and after we had chipped the icicles off his nose OTL settled down to watch the rugby!

Half way through the rugby he got the call to pick up TM, so bang goes his afternoon plans!

One good thing, there's not much snow about, well, not down here, just enough to make the fields a bit muddy!

See you tomorrow!

So many Flogs, So much Spawn!

Hi Woofers!

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

It has been a wonderful day today, loads of sunshine and warm balmy breezes. Seems strange that tomorrow they are forecasting snow and ice and blizzards and floods and plagues of locust but later it will be changeable!

Old Two Legs has threaten to give us a wash and haircut. You see the Hoodies have arrived and both Holly and I have tried them on and we were not impressed!

This morning OTL was up fifteen minutes earlier than normal and we were down on the beach taking the first picture at 06:20hr!

We reckon you can get fed up with sunrises!
 It wasn't the most interesting sunrise he has taken but as the sun is getting up earlier every day, we will have to put up with it!

No, I didn't think much of that either!
Lunchtime it was even warmer and we know that 'cos OTL didn't take his hat with him!

The ferrets had a little run on the football field before heading off to the Sea Wall for a rampage through the grass.

Do we chase Mole or Woofer?
 Eric was playing in the grass trying to do his 'Ferret Hiding' trick but OTL wouldn't let him disappear 'cos there were woofers coming along the path and he wanted both Eric and May up in his arms before they arrived!

After they had passed we all enjoyed a jog back down to the football field!

Race you back to the Mole Hills!
 Back home OTL counted Thirteen Flogs in our pond! They were all over the place, making splashing noises and grabbing each other to have a wrestle!

Well, that's what it looked like to us, mind you, this one looked like it was getting it's leg over!

New Indian Style Wrestling Throw?
 We left them to it but later when OTL went out he could see loads more Flog Splawn in the pond, who knows how many Flogs we will see hatch this year?

A serious load of Splawn!
 Holly reckons that it is the tinkling sound of the water coming out of the jar that gets them going, I mean, if I sit there listening to it tinkle it makes me want to have a wee!

The tinkling drives me mad!
Holly says that she has seen a pack of Bambi Burgers thawing out, so we know what we will be mugging OTL for tonight!

See you tomorrow!

Going Deaf is fun!

Hi Woofers!

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

We have been watching the weather forecasts and it looks like we could have a chance of some snowballs on Sunday! Mind you, knowing our luck it will be a bit of sleet, followed by some snow and then loads of rain to wash the snow away!

It's one of the penalties of living in the Southeast corner of England!

The morning walk was good fun, a couple of sniffs and a woof or two at a passing woofer but it wasn't a sunrise to be worth a photo, in fact it was very dull!

Roll on Spring, we could do with some sunshine!
 Old Two Legs was in a hurry this morning 'cos he had to go out delivering and The Missus needed some shopping, like Teeth Cleaning Chews for Holly and me!

They were late in getting back and that means we were late in getting out for our lunchtime walk!

The ferrets enjoyed themselves, Eric was tyring to get through the mouse holes again and Miss May was enjoying a run around!

They both had a good rummage around the fresh piles of earth, even Eric had a good dig!

I know he is there but I'll pretend I haven't seen it!
 Holly and I had fun chasing around the football field pretending we were chasing rabbits! Then OTL decided to put the ferrets away and call us but Holly and were suddenly struck down with a sever case of deafness! In fact, we both sat down facing away from OTL!

It all went well until OTL decided to run across the field and chase us both back to the car!

OK, let's turn away and pretend he isn't here!
Yesterday we managed to mug our way into a bit of steak but today we have been served up Doggy Scoff, YUK!

With any luck we may be able to mug some of OTL's dinner tonight and of course there is always The Missus to rob!

See you tomorrow!


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

Holly gets all technical!

Hi Woofers!

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

Now, if you remember, we had almost given up on getting any more sunrise photo's until autumn time?

Holly was sitting on the sofa last night and Holly says that we should be getting some more sunrise photos.

How? Old Two Legs asked, 'cos he was a little mystified. Well, says Holly, a bit later the clocks will go forward an hour, so that means we will have to get up a whole hour earlier to get out before everyone else and an hour earlier means we should bump into the sunrise again!

There are some times old Holly Chops can be right clever little woofer!

This morning OTL got up earlier than normal 'cos he was thinking about the sunrise and just for a change we saw the sun creeping up above the clouds!

Maybe the last one?
 A couple of minutes later the sun crept up a few feet and POW the cloud disappears and there is another shot!

OK, this could be the last one!
 Lunchtime we tried waking the ferrets for a run and today Eric was first out for his harness to be fitted! Miss May looked out of her bed with just one eye open, so we took it that she wanted to come with us!

The sun was shining and although there was a stiff breeze blowing, it was a rather pleasant walk along the Sea Wall.

Eric was showing us how a ferret can disappear in the grass by burrowing into the grass where a mouse had made a tunnel in the grass. y shoving his nose into the tunnel he can not only expand the hole but he can disappear from view!

Sneaky ferret!

Bet you didn't see me creep up on you!
Of course there was the 'Ferret' around the mole hills but today there was no sign of a mole, maybe he had gone down to Tesco's to get his shopping!

Come on, I'll race you back to the car!
 Back home the ferrets were having a good scratch which reminded OTL that he hadn't given them their dose of anti bug stuff, so, they both got their medicine between the shoulder blades which is all wet and sticky for ten minutes!

Last night it was steak and salad and both Holly and I got to mug OTL! Tonight I think it's Salad and Pork Pie, so we may be in for a little mugging! Mind you, I'm not too worried 'cos we got a nice big bowl of chicken!

See you all tomorrow!

Alll Gas and Sniff!

Hi Woofers!

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

We will be glad when the end of the month arrives 'cos by then the temperature will have gone up and the clouds will have lightened up a bit!

It looks like we have lost the sunrise 'cos by the time we get to the beach the sun is up and charging towards midday!

So, what are we looking for now? Well, Old Two Legs is keeping an eye open for fungi and flowers and insects!

Of course there is the passing 'interesting' ship.

This one is the Eduard Toll and is a gas transported bringing liquefied natural gas to the distribution site on the Isle of Grain.

Now, being so full of gas it has to have tugs to guide it into dock and today we could see four tugs worrying the ship to where it off loads the gas.

There could be another two tugs on the other side but we couldn't see them!

The Gduard Toll all full of Gas!
 OTL stood for a while waiting for it to creep up the River Medway. Holly was bored waiting for OTL and sat on the edge of the Sea Wall with a very bored look on her chops!

Just how long is he going to be?
Back home OTL had some 'manufacturing' to do so Holly and I had plenty of time for a snooze!

Lunchtime we left the ferrets asleep in their cages. OTL had asked them if they wanted to come for a walk but they didn't even open their eyes! So, that was it, fill the car with stuff for the carrier and next stop the Sea Wall!

We always investigate the Sea Wall and sometimes come across the occasional shrew!

Today we didn't find any Shrews but there was a sniff or two to enjoy! 

Yeah! This one is interesting.
 OTL had changed his lens over on the camera and put the 35mm lens back on the camera. Now this lens is good for big scenic views but is even better for close up shots!

Me, looking all whimsical at 35mm!
I think that when the insects get going he will be using the 105mm which is very good for close up on Tiddly Diddly Creepy Crawlies!

Today it looks like we have Doggy Scoff, so we are taking a keen interest in what OTL has for dinner tonight, steak and chips?

Claws crossed!

See you tomorrow!


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

Monday and it's Wet!

Hi There Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

It has been a typical Monday morning, you know, dark, grey and wet! Mind you, we did notice that the flowers were out on the Gorse Bushes!

Too late for the sunrise but the flowers are still here!
 When we looked at the sunrise it sort of contained everything from red sunrise through to sunny blue sky's!

Everything in one shot!
 Even Sheerness looked a little dramatic!

Sheerness with 'Atmosphere'!
Back home we had a game of 'Trampoline' using Old Two Legs bed! Holly tried jumping up and down of The Missuses pillow but it wasn't the same so she curled up and had a snooze instead!

The ferrets had a great time and young Eric was tearing around searching for nibbles in the sofa mechanicals!

Lunchtime he was wide awake and rattling the cage door, he just couldn't wait to get out and have a rampage on the Sea Wall!

Mind you, they didn't find any little hairy things to chase!

No Shrews or Mouses or Rats or Weasels or Stoats!
 However, they did go sniffing for moles but couldn't decide on which mole hill to dig, so instead they headed for the car and some nibbles when they got home, before going to sleep!

I'd rather nibble a bit of dried chicken than bite a moles tail!
OTL was busy this afternoon and I helped him when he needed to go into the loft to get some stuff. Like Archie Babe, I was on guard duty keeping all the Nargles back in their holes and allowing OTL to dig out his stuff!

We have heard that it's going to get a bit chilly this coming weekend so we will have to make the most of the warmish weather  before the chilly bits start!

See you tomorrow!


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