We took Rick out for one of his regular walks yesterday, down the hill, across the farmer’s field and into the chestnut woods. It was very quiet and not another soul in sight so we decided to try Rick off his leash. He was off like a rocket, gleefully running across the fields and then charging back to us. He was having such a wonderful time but Paul and I watched him like nervous new parents. Suddenly he swerved left and disappeared from view behind the bramble bushes. A heron flew up into the sky and then a duck. The lake!
We ran to the small lake that the local farmer uses to irrigate his land. No sign of Rick. Panic! The water looked undisturbed. “I don’t think he’s been in the water.” Then a rustling in the bushes and a very wet and muddy dog appeared looking very pleased with himself.
We sent a copy of our Eurotunnel train booking to our daughter Kat so she can put the date in her diary. She said she didn’t know we were bringing a cat and a ferret with us...

Travelling with your pet? Check out our online pages on pet travel and DEFRA's information on the Pet Travel Scheme for a smooth journey.
Have only ever travelled on Eurotunnel with dogs. The cat, ferret, and Rick, will soon be extremely well travelled, if you are backwards and forwards to France each year.ReplyDelete
Just Rick, we don't have any cats or ferrets!Delete
Well, I wasn't sure, but I can't remember you having mentioned any other pet than Rick !Delete
What is your ferret called and does he run up Paul's trouser legs? I bet he's called Nipper - the ferret, not Paul!ReplyDelete
I don't have a ferret!Delete
That's what all ferret owners say.Delete
silly dog!!! LOLReplyDelete
He was very pleased with himself.Delete
I don't think he'll leave you now; he has too good a life. When I go out with Bok he often disappears for 10 minutes, but always comes back. I'm sure Rick would do the same.ReplyDelete
I guess he's pretty safe around here, except when the hunters are out and about.Delete
