Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here!
Well, wot a day yesterday was!
We were out at the crack of dawn with The Missus while Old Two Legs stayed at home cleaning the cages out and making them all spic and span ready for when the ferrets come home!
Somewhere around eight thirty we set off for Harrietsham and a day of ferret sniffing!
This year we had four ferrets entering in the competition and we also entered the 'Ferret in a Bag' contest as well.
|Wendy is fast asleep in the right hand bag!|
Well, by the time the games got going our mob were fast asleep in their beds snoring their tails off!
First Miss Wendy couldn't find the exit so she went back to sleep!
Eric and Freddy didn't do any better, they went to sleep as well!
It was Miss May who tried to save our embarrassment and got through two rounds before being beaten by some tearaway with long legs!
There were loads of ferrets at the show and they were all judged on how fit and healthy they were and if their teeth were clean and coats brushed and clean bottoms!
To show you what it was like, Eric got marked down 'cos he had a bit of ear wax and Freddy got marked down 'cos he had a claw with a little nick in it, so it wasn't perfect!
We had the same problem with May and Wendy, tiddly things but enough to get marked down. In fact in the section that Fred and Eric entered the difference between first and last ferret was just five points!
There were some absolutely super ferrets there and we all agreed that next year we would all try harder!
|Some of the raffle prizes, these two from the Allhallows Croppers!|
Holly said they needed another section for the ferret with the biggest butt and Wendy would win that!
OTL said that if Wendy heard that then Holly was in for a sharp nip on her butt!
We liked the decorations on the cages as well.
|OK, but where is the ferret?|
|Loads of Food!|
|A new food for our ferrets!|
In the end it was Holly and her ferret Storm who won first prize!
|Holly and Storm!|
|Sneaking a cuddle!|
By the time we got home it was getting on for eight and by the time we had everything cleared away it was ten thirty, so that is why there was not Daisy's Diary yesterday!
Today we were late in getting up and to be honest, we could have stayed in bed even longer! It wasn't raining but the wind was blowing and we didn't hang about too long on the morning run!
Of course, after being so clean and brushed yesterday, Eric and May enjoyed a good roll in grass, just to get their normal sniff back!
|It's good to be home!|
|You just can't beat a Weasel Sniff!|
|Oops! The Sun just fell of the back of Grain!|
|Hang on, that is My Bonio!|
See you tomorrow!
