The North Wind Doth Blow.........

Hello Woofers!

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

It was terribly windy this morning, it came roaring off the North Sea and while the rain stayed away, the wind brought the cold!

It was so cold that Old Two Legs decided that Wendy and Freddy should stay in bed while Miss May and Eric should do the early morning walk.

Just feel the Wind Chill!
To start off with young Eric decided he wanted to walk down to the beach and wriggled and wriggled until OTL put him down. Then he rushed off to the grass and had a wee! Then it was back to OTL's arms where it was warm and cuddly!

We didn't go down to the beach 'cos of the wind but we headed back up the grass path and back to the car.

Well, Eric and May enjoyed the early morning run but decided that they would rather have had the midday run but as they were up and bouncing off the cage bars and chasing OTL around the office, they paid the price!

Midday the sun came out and although OTL had to wake them, Fred and Wendy were up for a run.

We took the grass path again and didn't bother with the beach, which, for Mr Freddy was good 'cos that means he can enjoy some new sniffs!

I like these sniffs,, and the slugs!
Miss Wendy said that he was 'Lowering the tone' and she refused to stick her nose in the vegetation 'cos she said it was full of Dog Wee!

Personally, I don't know what's wrong with that!

There is just no taking him anywhere and, I'm certainly not sticking my nose in there!
The wind was still howling in off the sea and it was almost as cold as this morning!

We didn't hang about too long and soon we were back to the warm of the car!

An afternoon of snoozing under OTL's desk and a woof at the postman to follow, wot a way to spend the afternoon!

Life don't get much better!

See you tomorrow and don't forget, it's Friday tomorrow!

Luv,

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

It's all Go!

Hi Woofers!

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

You know these computer thingy things take a lot of looking after! Yesterday we couldn't use the laptop 'cos Old Two Legs was doing something called 'DeFraging' and it took almost all night to do it!

We have inspected it this morning but it doesn't seem any faster than yesterday!

This morning it was cold and windy down here on the North Kent Coast. It certainly got under your ears and made them chilly blocks of hair!

Wendy and Freddy came out with us but they spent most of the trip trying to get into the ferret bag!

In fact it was so cold that OTL didn't even get the camera out this morning or at lunchtime!

We spotted Max and Oscar in the distance but didn't get the chance of a chat 'cos we were all heading back home as fast as we could!

TM is still trying to wear the washing machine out and OTL is staying out of the way in his office plonking away on the computer.

Come lunchtime the rain started so we didn't hang about for too long. The tide wasn't in so I wasn't tempted to go in for a swim!

It also meant that OTL didn't get the camera out of the car, he left it under his hat on the car seat!

So, just for today, here in a picture of the Fairy Falls down the bottom of a big hill where at the top they call it Bealach na Ba, or Pass of the Cattle.

This is in Wester Ross in the West Highlands of Scotland!

Pretty but the midges were terrible!
 OTL was almost eaten alive by the midges!

The Missus has been charging around today, tidying up all the mess we left under the sofa!

We keep on finding our biscuits that the ferrets have hidden and of course we just got to have a nibble!

Looks like the weather is turning colder over the next few days so we might do what the ferrets are doing............snoozing in a warm bed!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

She is Back!

Hi Woofers!

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

Yesterday and today have a bit of a 'Mix Up Day'! Yesterday Old Two Legs was up an hour earlier than normal so he could get the ferrets all cleaned out, then Holly and I got a walk down on the beach, all before eight thirty when he left to pick up The Missus and Shirley from the airport.

We of course couldn't go along with him 'cos they don't allow woofers in airports, unless they are in 'Travelling Cages'!

So, we stayed at home and stood guard at the bedroom window waiting for TM to arrive! 

Waiting for TM & OTL!
The ferrets were a bit put out, not getting their run along the beach but OTL promised them a walk when he got back!

After a while Auntie Sheila came over and let us out into the garden for a wee, then it was back up to the bedroom window to resume guard duties!

Early afternoon they all arrived back and Holly and I went just a little potty!

In fact we went right potty!

There was a sniff of Texas Desert about the suit case and on her sneakers but it was good to have her back!

OTL got a bottle of Single Malt as well!

Funny thing was, as soon as she sat down, she fell asleep! OTL says it is something called 'Jet Lag' and he did try to explain it but to be honest, we got bored and fell asleep as well!

Mind you, we did have Plawns and Rice and Plawn Clackers!

Off we all went to bed and half way through the night TM got up and was unpacking and doing stuff downstairs with the lights on, which woke us all up, including OTL!

Seems we are getting back to normal again!

Today has been all about trying to wear the washing machine out! Loads of stuff going in and out and then trying to get it all dried before the rain comes!

I still reckon it's too early, I've got 'Jet Lag'!
Freddy and Wendy said they would have rather stayed in bed pretending they had jet lag, just so they could get a couple more hours sleep!

May and Eric were a little more adventurous and set about digging the beach up to make sandcastles!

'ere! It's gone all dark again!
 As Eric said.................
Gawd! There's one born every minute!
 There was a load of cloud up in the sky and Holly said she can sniff rain on the wind! We decided that we wouldn't hang around too long 'cos there is one thing we don't like doing..............getting wet!

Now, where is a Yellow Filter when you want one!
 Holly and I agreed that a quick trot back to the car would be a very good idea as well!

OK, cars that way!
Now, normally we wouldn't worry too much about the clouds but did you know, this is the first day of Spring!

OTL reckons he saw a butterfly but then decided it was maybe too early for butterflies and maybe it was a day time moth!

Trouble was, this Butter-Moth did a couple of wing flaps and dived into a bush, so we didn't see it again. Maybe we will see it tomorrow, if there is no rain!

OTL has been doing 'Paperwork' today, so we have been pretending we have 'Jet Lag' and spent the afternoon snoozing!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

I think I have a Dust Allergy!

Hello Woofers!

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

I tell you wot, this tidying up thing is a right pain in the tail! We have been helping Old Two Legs get rid of all the crumbs and bits of grass and twigs and sand and garden stuff that hangs on our coats after a good rampage around the garden chasing the birdies!

We have worn out the jet powered vacuum cleaner,twice! It got too hot and fainted twice!

The electric carpet sweeper is worn out, well the battery is and it takes such a long time to charge it back up again!

The ferrets haven't helped much. As soon as we find the stash they hid under the sofa they moved it to under the table! Just to be extra helpful. the second set of ferrets found the stash under the table and moved it to under the sofa!

Holly has been going around and finding the stash and eating it so the ferrets can't move it again. Mind you, it was a bit of a game finding the little extra stash in the crate full of Ping Pong Balls that Eric loves swimming in!

Down on the beach we were approached by six Mini Two Legs who wanted to stroke the ferrets and one asked if I remember his sister stroking the ferrets last weekend!

Seems like we are getting a name down here, even OTL is known as 'The Ferret Man'!

This afternoon we had a break and watched a little TV while OTL gave Holly and me a good brush all over! It was great 'cos at the end we got some Doggy Choc Buttons that have been hiding in a box for just ages! They have now almost all gone!

Auntie Sheila will be coming over to let us out into the garden tomorrow while OTL picks up The Missus and her mate from the airport. We have promised not to make too much of a mess before TM gets back!

So, all this vacuuming and dusting has made me sneeze and I had to go up on the bed for a snooze, just to get over it!

Well, that's my excuse anyway!

Just loved Archie Babes singing tale! Brilliant! That will teach them to wimp on about 'Jet Lag' when there are balls to chase and Flogs to Hunt!

Another thing, OTL says that there is no Menswold, it's always been a Womenswold and don't the men know it!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Marley gets beaten up!

Hi Woofers!

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

Not so warm today, still, it's not raining!

We have started to clear up here. The questions yesterday about the dishwasher, like wot has been loaded up with if Old Two Legs has been eating off plastic plates. Well, you have forgotten that he eats breakfast so that is a bowl full of rabbit food, then his mug for his tea and after that there is his glass for orange juice and of course the ferrets bowl for their Lactose Free Milk and then a small plate for his toast and jam. Then there is the mid morning cup of tea followed by lunch which uses a plate and a mug for his tea and there is the knives and forks he uses to shovel it all in his mouth! Then there is afternoon tea and cakes with some cucumber sandwiches and Salmon and Shrimp Paste Bread Fingers! Of course, that is all before his dinner!

He has all the stuff he uses for dinner including the knife and fork for digging through the plastic film covering his nosh and the plate for the cheese and biscuits we have after the apple pie and custard.

There is also the bowls we have kept full of nibbles for the evening, like shortbread and twiglets and cheesy biscuits and not to mention the crystal whisky glasses that we have almost run out of!

It's a hard life here you know and OTL is down to his last pair of socks before he has to open up the pack that contains his new ones!

Then there is the bed, we are not sure if we should vacuum the bed to get rid of the crumbs or just brush them over to the side of the bed where The Missus sleeps, mind you, the carrot ends are getting a bit whiffy so we might get the vacuum cleaner out!

Enough of the domestic engineering, it can wear a woofer out just thinking about it!

We were down on the beach having our normal sniff when we spotted young Marley, who just loves OTL, and coming from the other direction was little Prince, who also loves OTL! Holly and I hung back to see what would happen.

First........................

Gottcha!
 Prince jumped up and pushed Marley to the ground, going for the throat we thought but Prince had forgot that that Marley's backside was still in the air, so that didn't count and a 'Clean Fall'

So, he backed off until Marley got up again and did a flying jump at Marley's head.............

A Four Paw Jump!
Again Marley went down and we thought it was all over but as you can see, Marley still had his tail in the air!

Just stay there while I sort your backside out!
We could have watched the fun and games all day but the ferrets wanted to get home so off we went!

We had some work to do!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Spring time!

Hi Woofers!

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

Another sunny day in North Kent! The ferrets got switched around today, Freddy and Wendy stayed in bed while Eric and May came out for the morning run!

Eric had a great time digging trenches and looking for woofers!

Is that a Woofer?
Unfortunately, no woofers, just Holly and I, so, Eric chased Holly along the beach trying to nip her back legs!

That ferret will bite off too much one day!

Old Two Legs was playing with the camera and spotted a giant Two Legs, until he worked out it was his shadow!

Wot a Plonker!

Going on a diet soon!
 Lunchtime it was great on the beach, I went in for a swim, with my harness on and got soaking wet!

Today Holly stayed out of the water, one wet paw is enough for her!

You swim if you want, I'll catch some rays!
 You know it was up around 19 degrees C today, real Spring weather but there is some rough weather heading our way, just in time for The Missus as she heads home.

I know it will not last for long but we're making the most of it now!
We have been looking around and making lists of cleaning stuff we have to do before TM comes home, like sweep up all the crumbs from the sofa and find all the biscuits the ferrets have hidden under the furniture! Then there is the washing up, there must be at least ten dishwasher loads!

The dustbin men will be working for their money this week as we empty all the bins!

There are at least ten lists at the moment, and on top of that, we had six bags of Cat Litter delivered today, the big 30L bags. There was a special promotion on you see, buy two and get the third free!

We also know there are four big 10Kg bags of ferret food arriving as well! With all this there will not be any room left for the ferrets, never mind us!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

OTL gets a Selfie done!

Hello Woofers!

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

Wot a super day it's been. Sunshine almost all day long and Old Two Legs managed to get most of his work done in between our walks along the Sea Wall!

Being so warm, the sand really dried out on the beach and of course, Holly Chops just had to do her famous 'Nose Dive' into the sand. Her face was covered with sand and so was her nose! 

Geronimo!
Both Freddy and Miss Wendy joined in the game and set about re arranging the sand, ferret fashion! Then once that was done the next was to pick up on the 'Ferret Track' and head back to the car for a cooling drink of water!

Come on Missy, shift yer tail!
OTL pointed out the bushes that yesterday had tight little buds but this morning there was bloom!

OK, so we always have flowers buy just look at our colours!
 The Hawthorn had burst into bloom and most of the flowers were now open!

Now, this is what Spring is all about!
 Lunchtime OTL gave up on trying to keep me out of the water and took my harness off. You know, even Holly got her paws wet and that is a first this year!


Come On! Throw a Woofin' Stick!
 Miss May was showing off, she quickly piled up some sand and made a Sandcastle and finished it off by making a roof of stone!


I should have been called 'Bob The Builder'!
As we came off the beach a couple of Two Legs walked up, all amazed to see ferrets out for a walk.

OTL went into 'Story Mode' about how wonderful ferrets are, especially May and Eric who he was cuddling!

Can we take a picture? Of course you can, of the ferrets, not us!

Blooming ferrets are getting all the attention nowadays!

Then, seeing the TL had a decent camera, OTL thinks it may have been a Leica, he asked if he would take a picture of OTL and the ferrets!

So, here we are, OTL has his 'Selfie'!

Normally we never see OTL in the pictures 'cos he is always behind the camera but today, he gets to be famous!
OTL's Selfie!
It's a pity that Archie Babe doesn't live a little closer to us 'cos every time he has to have a Shampoo & Set, he could go splashing about in the water here and get real sniffy again, just like us!

See you all tomorrow!

Luv,

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

More trees blossoming!

Hi Woofers!

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

Well, it's been another super day today. First of all we had an extra half an hour in bed this morning 'cos Old Two Legs didn't hear the alarm go off, mainly 'cos he didn't set it last night!2

Mind you, we didn't care 'cos that left us a nice warm beach to have a roll in!

Holly loves warm sand!
 It didn't stop OTL from telling her to 'Grow up' which made her show off!

No, Won't, Warm Sand is Soooo Gooood!
 it wasn't all blue sky but there was hardly a ripple on the sea and just for once, all the ships had gone!

I see no ships!
 Lunchtime it was still the same and although we were late in getting down there 'cos we had to wait for a delivery.

I managed to get a quick dip in the water, before OTL spotted me and told me to 'Act My Age'!

As if!

Loads of Sniffs!
 Eric and May were having a great time rolling in the Sea Kale and sniffing all the sniffs on the sea wall!
Come on, my turn to have a roll!

 OTL was looking at the blossom that had suddenly appeared on the bushes, all those flowers just waiting to burst out!

OK lads, tomorrow we all go BANG!
First thing in the morning we have good fun with the flogs, I come
downstairs with OTL and throws open the curtain and there is an enormous
splashing as six flogs leap off the weed and head for the bottom of the
pond in a panic!

It is So Funny to see all these back legs and flogy bottoms jumping all over the place!

See you all tomorrow!

OTL has got to go to the dentist tomorrow, more money and pain!

Luv,

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

Freddy visits the Vet!

Hi Woofers!

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

We had an email from The Missus this morning, she has purchased, at great expense, a new hand bag and purse.

Holly says it's a real 'Tarts Handbag'!
Can't imagine she will carry that through customs on the way back, mind you, they sort of go with the shoes!

She is still looking for the 'High Heeled' version!
There is no way she is taking us for a walk in them, with or without the horse!

It was super warm on the beach this morning and we all had a good roll in the sand, I even gave the waves a good woofing and Old Two Legs woofed at me and told me I couldn't go in for a swim!


Can't catch me!
 The sun was shining and the sky was blue, yep, Spring has arrived!

Spring!
 The ferrets were rather thirsty after their trot along the beach and as soon as they got back to the car they both dived into the water bowl!

I jus' love a good slurp after a run on the beach!
 Loads of fun this afternoon, OTL has been kept busy with 'Work' but promised to finish early so he can cook our dinner!

I'll have to go and remind him!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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

Sunday is for resting and Counting Flogs!

Hi Woofers!

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

You know, today started off just super, sunshine, balmy breezes and more blossom on the trees!

Talking of Barmy Things, just look at these two, I mean, we couldn't imagine a more dodgy looking pair of tourists inn the world! We reckon they are working out how to get the wheel on the plane back home!

One Wheel on my Wagon!
We were doing better things, like digging up the beach and chasing sniffs!

OTL spotted SIX Flogs in the pond this morning! They were all sitting there sunbathing but as soon as OTL moved the door to take a picture they all went SPLOSH and disappeared under the weeds. Except one who was fast asleep and got woke up by the sploshing but didn't know what or why, so OTL got a picture of that one instead of all six!

Did I miss something?
Just like Ratty, OTL will get a picture in the end. That makes me think, we haven't been putting out any seed for the birds since The Missus left for the U.S.A. and of course, there hasn't been piles of seed on the floor and we haven't seen Ratty either.  Maybe he has got fed up and gone off to the Chip Shop to mug the patrons there!

Unfortunately, we were served up Doggy Scoff today, not our usual old muck but a new tasting muck! Well, for a change both Holly and I woofed it all down and came back for a treat afterwards!

This afternoon we all had a cuddle on OTL's chair, after he had repaired it! One of the screws holding it all together had fallen out so armed with a big screwdriver he reinstalled it and tightened up all the others he could find!

So, we are off to see if the flog count has gone up but as it has started to rain we think the flogs will go into hiding 'cos the don't like it when it rains, strange that is!

See you tomorrow!

Luv,

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