Hardly Any Flowers

Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your diligent doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.

We had a big change in the weather this week. In fact, yesterday we woke up to find snow on the ground! Well, it wasn't exactly snow. If you want to get technical, it was sleet that kind of fused together on the ground.

All day long it was cold and windy. The sky had a definite wintry look. 

My ghostwriter, who is now in her annual winter-denial mode, says it will surely be 80º by next week!  

Anyway, considering the weather, I can only show you a couple flowers. All the rest have died or gone to seed. 

Here's a little cabbage butterfly resting on the hosta leaves. 

We do, however, have several beautiful autumn leaves to show you.

There are still a lot more leaves on the trees. I will be sure to keep you posted on the changes. 

(Don't tell ghostwriter. But the weatherman is predicting snow again on Sunday.)

After The Rain

Greetings friends and fans! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your diligent doggie reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel.

It was gray and dreary for the past two days with rain and fog and mist. Today it finally cleared up! I'm going to talk about cheerful things. For one thing, the trees are just starting to turn pretty colors. 

The rainy days have been great for growing mushrooms!

My ghostwriter says this picture looks like the Smurf Village. (Whatever that is!)

Don't worry. I didn't eat any of them, even though our Oma says the white ones would probably be very yummy.

Speaking of Oma, ghostwriter took her to visit our local farm market to see the Halloween decorations and pumpkins. 

Now for a Double Doggie Homeland Security announcement.

There have been not one, not two, but three screwy squirrels ditzing around in my yard and eating the birdie seeds! I've been having to run out and chase them almost every 15 to 20 minutes during the daylight hours.

(Getting pooped out!) 

Here's a picture of one as he climbed up the clothesline pole:

Doggies are to be on the look-out for these scurrilous miscreants. They are especially bold right now! They don't even run away when they see me looking out the garage door at them. They just stare at me with their beady little eyes, as if daring me to catch them, and then take off as soon as I set one paw out the door.

Stay out of my yard, crummy, rotten, dastardly squirrels!

Hello everyone. This is a Special Edition of The Daily Bone and I'm your somber doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

It was with great sadness that heard our good friend Momo has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We've known Momo and her brother Pinot for a long time. (They live on the other side of Lake Ontario from us!) 

My esteemed, late colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel was honored when beautiful Momo accompanied him to the Blogville 2015 Happy New Year Party.

He often told me how much he enjoyed that party. 

Please visit Momo's family and send your condolences:


If that wasn't sad enough, we also heard that my dearest Princess Leah's Nanny passed away too!  Our hearts go out to her and her family.

Sorrowful times, indeed!

Please visit Princess Leah here:

October Now

Hello everyone. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your dedicated doggie reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

Sorry we've been away for a while. My ghostwriter has been working a lot of overtime lately at the nursing home.

Oma is doing well. Ghostwriter was finally able to bring her outside into the nursing home special memorial garden. (For the past several weeks there was a wasp nest by the door that lead to the garden, so no one could go out there. It's finally gone now.)

The weather has changed dramatically. We went from hot and humid, with blue skies, and big puffy white clouds,

to cold, dreary, and rainy! This sunset looks like a scene from the X-Files!


The moon peeked through the gloom for a little while some days ago.
It had kind of a spooky look to it, though.


But thankfully, things are supposed to warm up later this week. We should be seeing some beautiful Fall colors soon.

I think I'll just rest up until then.

Big Change

Hello everybody. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your diligent doggie reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

Yesterday it was so hot out! I think it went up to 93º! The sky was full of gigantic puffy clouds! This one kind of looks like a very fluffy white doggie with big floppy ears sleeping on a pillow.

It was very windy too, and lots of dead branches fell off the trees.

But the sky was changing constantly. In the evening, some storm clouds moved in. 

Ghostwriter went out into the garage with the front door open so she could watch the storm. It rained hard for a few minutes. But afterwards, she saw the most amazing sunset! A band of storm clouds was moving very rapidly from south to north as the sun went down in the west.


This morning the temperature is 63º! I guess Autumn has arrived!
