Eric and The Squeaky!

Hi Woofers!

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

Now, yesterday it snowed but we forgot to show you how bad the blizzard was. Old Two Legs said it was too bad to go out, so he took a picture of the computer screen that is connected to a camera!

Will we need snow shoes?
This morning it was dark and the sky was all dark and the sunrise just didn't happen! Mind you, I had a bit of luck, we found a ball, a brand new yellow tennis ball!


Mine, All Mine!
 OTL would kick it and I chased it and when I lost it OTL found it and hid it in the car!

Of course, I found it 'cos of the sniff, I mean, you just couldn't miss the sniff, well unless you are OTL!

It was rather warmer than yesterday and there was nothing about rain in the forecast so at lunchtime Eric and May came out with us.

Eric, like Freddy is not really into this walking lark but today he got a surprise, OTL had brought along one of his squeaky balls!

So, when Eric look like slowing down, we would get a squeak and off he would go chasing OTL along the beach!

Who's got me Squeaky?
 Miss May has got a thing about rolling in a good sniff on the beach and some times OTL has to drag her off the sea weed!

I've really missed this!
I decided that I would leave the ball on the beach and to make sure no one pinched it I decided to bury it!

Must get deeper!
 Unfortunately, Holly doesn't share my love of ball hiding, she did at least sit down and wait for me.

For Gawd's sake, how much longer?
Of course, back home Eric and May were asleep in no time! You can tell they missed there walk on the beach. Tomorrow it will be Freddy and Wendy's time for a run, providing it's warm and not raining!

By the way, we have been informed that yesterday we got Boo's puppies name wrong! They are not called Wee and Poo!

They are called Sooty and Sweep!

Holly says that she still prefers Poo and Wee!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Snow, Rain and Sleet!

Hi Woofers!

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

At last, we got some snow today, not a lot and it didn't settle and it was mostly just wet and cold, however, it snowed!

First thing this morning there was no sign of any thing wet, in fact it was rather dry and we could see some red in the sky underneath all the clouds.

A 'Morning Glow'!
Holly and I were chasing up and down the beach while Old Two Legs was watching the sky and saying that there was going to be a 'Magnificiant Sunrise', if we were lucky!

Now, not that we didn't believe him but as young Miss May says, 'Red sky in the Dawning, Ferrets take Warning'!

Then it happened, pow! The whole sky turned red, except for the grey and black bits!

Getting all warmed up!
The best bit was when the sky looked like it was about to burst into flames!

We all stood there going WOW!

WOW!
Then, suddenly, it all went out, like you had turned the lights out, it was all back to being cold , grey and black!

Back home it was the normal business, OTL shovelling Ferret Poo while the ferrets robbed him of slurps of Ferretone!

Eric was trying all sorts of tricks to get more Ferretone. After slurping the cap dry, he left the bottle and ran over to OTL and started licking his fingers. If that didn't work he would climb into OTL's arm and roll onto his back then as OTL put his nose close, Eric would start licking for all he was worth! OTL would end up with a Ferret Licked Nose, Chin, Cheek and Forehead!

Then Eric got some Ferretone!

That was hard work and my tongue is almost worn out!
Now, you remember little Boo, she had some puppies who are now seven weeks old and their Two Legs took some photo's of them with their mum!

Boo with her babies!
OK, all together .........................Aaaaaaaaaaah!

Mummy and puppies are doing well and Holly Chops has given them names......let me introduce you to...........


Wee and Poo!
Holly reckons that our ferrets are bigger than them, mind you, the ferrets don't woof like wot they do!

Good to see that Izzy and The Mob have survived the snow, lets hope they survive the cold after having their hair cut!

It won't be long before Spring is here with a bang!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Rain or Snow?

Hello Woofers!

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

Well, as far as the weather goes today, we have seen better!

We were up early again to beat the rain that was promised by the weather man and we managed to get around before it started.

We don't need a flash light, we got noses!
I don't know why he uses that flash thing every morning, the pictures are a load of rubbish really!

I prefer it when the sun makes the sky all coloured and we get twinkly lights from Southend or Sheerness!

The Missus has been up at the village hall having their Christmas Party, yes, I know it's half way through January but they are a funny lot at the best of times!

We were going to take Fred and Wendy up to the hall to meet Rosie but she wasn't there so Freddy showed off went to bed early!

Lunchtime came and back down the beach again it was holding off the heavy rain, you know, the stuff that runs down under your collar or under your tail!

It's then that you have difficulty in deciding whether you would rather have some snow!

At least the snow doesn't run under your tail!

Come on, hurry up before the real stuff starts!
 Now down this end of the world there are some Two Legs who do the most daft things, like the two who were trying to teach worms to swim, in the rain and the wind!

Holly said that worms don't normally swim but when they do it is The Crawl!

Can worms do the Brest Stroke?
We left them to it and headed back home, just in time 'cos down came the rain again!

The afternoon was spent relaxing on the sofa watching the Britannia series on the TV. We have to watch it when TM is out cos there is loads of swearing and sword fights!

I think the rain is going to hang about for tomorrow so I can see that we will be having 'Speed Wee's' just like today!

Roll on Spring, I want to go swimming again!

See you all tomorrow.

Luv,

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

That's a Big Wee!

Hi Woofers!

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

We had the wind yesterday, nothing to do with Holly's tummy, I mean the stuff that blows the clouds away!

This morning it was a slight frost, enough to cover the windscreen on the car before we headed off to the beach. Five minutes with the blower on soon cleared that and off we went.

It was still well before sunrise and the colours in the sky were terrific! I mean, just look at this photo and it was paw held as well!

That's a ship heading into the Medway!
 We thought it wonderful how the colours go from blue through yellow and orange to dark grey!

Can you see the star in the middle? Again, hand held camera!
You can imagine what it would be like if Old Two Legs used a tripod!

Lunchtime we took Freddy and Wendy out with us and Freddy was doing his normal trick, you know, 'Ooooooo My Paw Hurts!'

He was making such a fuss that OTL carried him all the way to the beach where he did a quick wee.

As he was on the sand, we were all attracted by a tug playing with his fire hose!

WOW! Says Freddy, just look at that boat having a wee!

We all thought that was brilliant observation by Freddy especially as he has never seen a fire hose working before!

One Serious Wee!
Back at the football field Freddy reluctantly agreed to walk across the field but OTL still had to pretend he was going to pick Freddy up a couple of times, until Freddy gave up and decided that walking was going to save a lot of disappointment!

Back home we all crashed out for a well earned snooze, all except OTL who was reading a book The Missus gave him for his birthday.

Shetland.

The way he is reading and re-reading bits of it I feel that there is and 'Adventure' coming up either this autumn or next Spring!

Holly and decided that we wouldn't go 'cos the last time we went on a ferry we were in some 'Rough Water' that made us feel terrible!

He's on his own!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Eric gets some exercise!

Hello Woofers!

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

Last night Old Two Legs was a naughty OTL, he sneaked two slurps of malt and a whole packet of honeycomb bits!

This morning he was a whole hour late in getting up!

Mind you, Holly and I were still fast asleep when The Missus stuck her head into the bedroom and shouted for OTL to get up!

She is SOOOO LOUD!

Down on the beach we could see the sky and the trails left by the jets!

.......and the sun isn't even up yet!
Looking across the River Medway you could see the colours of the sunrise lighting up the sky!

Just look at those jet trails!
 OTL was clicking away and he just had to try the flash!

It would be great were it not for the wind!
 The wind was terrible, it had blown all the clouds away but the wind chill was terrible!

It improved when the sun crept over the horizon and you could feel the difference but the wind was still blowing!

........well, at least there is no snow!
 Lunchtime the wind had dropped down a bit so Eric agreed to a walk on the beach. Miss May was having a great time rolling in all the sniffs and Eric was walking a short way, gets a lift from OTL and then gets down again!

OK, I'm now exhausted, I need a lift!
 The tide was right in and there was only a small bit of beach we could walk on!

It's a good job it's not an on shore wind or we cold get washed out the sea!
So, while the rest of the country is suffering from six feet of snow we get wind and sunshine!

Mind you, later this afternoon we had a few rain showers pass us by, but no snow!

Holly is not too happy about that 'cos she has just got a new snow board that she got from Amazon at a really good price!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Windy or Wot!

Hi Woofers!

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

Hey! We have been watching the news and see that there is loads of snow all over the place, except where we live!

What do we get? A Cold Wind up our tails and watery eyes!

Old Two Legs has been getting up earlier and taking us for a walk down on the beach but that messes up the photographs so this morning he tried something new.

Long exposures!

30 seconds at f/5.6!
 No, we didn't think much of it either especially as it was like this.....

Well, at least it's real!
Just for fun I stood still looking at him when he took this picture knowing that my eyes would light up!

Scary or wot!
Finally, he decided to go back to the settings he has used in the past to get another morning shot of Sheerness!
Back to normal again!
At lunchtime we took Eric and May down to the vet, May got a tickle behind the ear and poor Eric got stabbed while OTL got all upset 'cos they took all his money and left him with an empty wallet!

Mind you, it did mean that Wendy and Freddy got a walk at lunchtime, even though Freddy said he would rather be in bed snoozing!

Freddy just doesn't do all this walking stuff and keeps on rolling over and complain about his damaged claw or some other reason why he needs a lift instead of being made to walk!

Now, OTL has a great trick to get him walking.

First of all Freddy and Wendy are put on the ground and Wendy heads off in the direction we are going until she gets to the end of the lead!

Freddy, on the other paw, sits down and asks for a lift, OTL, at the other end of the lead, crouches down and says, 'Come On Freddy'

Freddy thinks he is going to get a lift and runs towards OTL.

Just before he gets to him, OTL stands up and walks a few more paces  in the direction of the car. Freddy sits down again until he sees OTL crouch down again and Freddy thinks he is going to get a lift and off he goes trying to catch OTL before he gets up.

Of course he doesn't but finally we all get to the car and Freddy finally get picked up along with Wendy who has been laughing her tail off at Freddy's attempts to get a lift!

Hang on! I'm going as fast as I can!
OTL got a load of birthday cards yesterday for his birthday including one from Archie Babe which had loads of snow and mountains.

We could do with a drop of snow here just so we can all have a roll in it!

Maybe tomorrow?

Bye bye for now.

Luv,

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

Another candle on the cake for OTL!

Yo Woofers!

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

Well, it had to happen, another candle for OTL's cake, trubble is, we have run out of cake tins big enough to put all the candles on the top, now we have to stick them in the side of the cake and it looks like a copy of the Mary Rose warship with all it's guns poking out the side!

It has set the fire alarm off twice and blackened the ceiling in the kitchen!

The Missus found it easier lighting all the candles with a gas blow torch, and asbestos gloves to carry it with!

Holly and I gave him one of our 'Happy Birthday' licks and jumped all over him at five thirty this morning!

He enjoyed that!

Now we have saved up the Birthday Song until now just so you can join in, ready?

After 9....................one, twenty seven, NINE!

Happy Birthday to Yooo
Have you had a good poooo!
We've saved you this sniff,
Happy Birthday to Yooooo!

As a special treat TM is cooking him a curry and afterwards he gets to choose which crafting channel TM will watch tonight!

He gets all the good jobs!

Like, this morning, off we went to the beach but it was still dark and we told him that birthday or no, if he starts flashing that light we would wee all over it, and his boots!

You know, OTL could have seen nearly twenty six thousand sunrises!
We are going to give him a Birthday Snuggle tonight and help him finish off the shortbread!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Wet and Damp!

Hi Woofers!

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

Wot a day! It was windy and chilly and DARK this morning!

If fact it was so dark Old Two Legs didn't even take his camera with him when we went for our early morning stroll!

Mind you, the wind was a little too cold so a long leisurely stroll really wasn't on the cards, it was a quick wee and a dash!

Unfortunately, OTL had to go out to do some work and he wasn't too happy 'cos when he arrived at his customers, it was raining and as you would have guessed, he was working outside!

Poor OTL!

We, on the other paw were tucked up warm and comfortable on the bed, looking out of the window for his return!

He arrived back just about 'Walkies Time' but we had different ideas 'cos it was pouring down and there was no way we were going out in that, rain coat or no!

We left him for a while to get on with the reports he had to write regarding the mornings expedition!

Later, the rain stopped so off we went. As we were crossing the football field we spotted a young Bozo Labrador chasing a ball. That was until he spotted us, he then came bounding over looking like he was going to cause some trouble!

He got to Holly first and received a very grumbly woof from her!

She was not feeling her best you see!

Next he chased me around a bit until I also gave him the woofers warning!

It was then that OTL managed to grab him as he passed OTL and he held onto the Bozo until his Two Legs could get the lead on him!

That will teach that woofer not to shove his nose up out tails!

Back home OTL got an email through confirming that Wednesday Eric had an appointment with the vet to get him stabbed against Distemper!

It's getting all too technical you know, appointments by email, what ever next, Robot stabbing machines!

we have worked out that OTL has got Venison Steak tonight to help was down his salad so Holly and I are in for some serious nibbles!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

3Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

A Suggly Sunday!

Yo Ho Woofers!

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

You know, sometimes, just sometimes, you get a really lazy, snugly, warm and comfortable day and today has been one of them!

We went to bed a little later than normal last night, so that means we woke up a little later, well, Old Two Legs Holly and I did!

The Missus was down stairs playing with her inky stuff and being 'creative' well, that's what she calls it, the rest of us calls it 'Mucky'!

OTL had to go out working, so we were down the beach before the sun got up and that means he is playing with his flash light on the camera, it's a bit off putting when you sneak up on a sniff and half way through inspection there is a blinding flash of light that scares the sniff off!

If he keeps flashing that thing I'll bury it in the sand!
By the time we got home the sun had just poked its head above the horizon but not through the clouds but that was OK 'cos we were snuggled up in the duvet on the bed, all warm and snugly again!

Off went OTL and a little later off went TM!

It was back to snooze an' snuggles until OTL got back.

Of course, we were awake by then and itching to go out for the lunchtime stroll. Today Eric and May came with us 'cos it was warm and sunny and dry!

They hadn't been out for a while and really enjoyed the beach, especially May who was digging holes all over the place!

Come on! There's a Nargle sticking out of that hole!
Being a Sunday, there were loads of new woofers all over the place, so OTL had to keep a sharp look out for woofers on the loose who might take a fancy to a ferret lunch!

Now, because he was keeping watch he couldn't play with his camera, so the quantity of photos was well down, we had just four to choose from for the blog!

Out to sea there was a ship that was drifting around in circles just below low tide mark and we couldn't work out what it was doing. A tug passed close by but didn't stop, so it couldn't have been in too much trouble!

Just going for a Sunday Spin?
Young Eric enjoyed the run across the football field, it's a route back to the car he has never taken so he spotted the car and he and May had a race back, stopping only at the mole hill to have a dig!

Back home OTL did his little bit of work and then came down stairs to watch a bit of TV, there was some super chicken in our bowls and I was 'nose down and tail up' until it had all gone!

Holly didn't touch hers, I think she has a Grumble Tum starting, she gets like that plus the eating grass didn't help!

After that meal I got a teeth cleaning chew and jumped up onto OTL's chair and snuggled up close to him and we both fell asleep!

That's the sort of snuggles I love, all warm and cosy and a chew waiting for when I wake up!

OTL's off tomorrow morning, working again but has promised to take Holly and I out first. That means we will be walking in the dark again and if things go as normal, Holly will have the 'Grubby Bum' which means she will get a wash with the Baby Wipes before a wash an' brush up at home!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Another grey day but we are alright!

Hello Woofers!

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

It's been a bit chilly today, mind you, we were up so early that the sun was still in bed!

OK, who pinched the sea?
Old Two Legs tried taking photos of Holly and me but the camera couldn't lock onto us so he ended up with a picture of Sheerness with the fairy lights!

Too dark for the sun!
On our way to the beach we pass the old refinery site that has slowly been taken to bits over the years. All that seems to be left, if you ignore the concrete, are a few storage tanks and these look like they are being torn down!

It won't be long before they disappear all together!
 Down along the Sea Wall it was all grey again, the only colour we saw was a plastic drinks cup!

Waiting for the Spring to get started.
 We did spot a Wormy Man out on the mud flats looking for worms that had lost their way and needed a lift!

Here Wormy Wormy!
 We got back to the football field to find they had started the match so we all stood there for a while watching the game. Holly was getting all excited and kept on jumping up and down calling out 'Come on, on me 'ead'!

On me 'ead sunshine!
Back home it was back onto the sofa, paws up in the air and waiting for The Missus to come back.

OTL is off working tomorrow but he has promised to take us out for our morning walk.

We may get a walk with The Missus if he doesn't get home early enough.

We had Doggy Scoff served up today so it is mugging time tonight but poor OTL has only salad which to be honest is not the best tasting grass we have tried!

We'll be glad when he finishes and gets back to some decent nosh!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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