Sticks And Food And Trucks Too!

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

As you can see, I've got a big stick! In fact, I've got lots and lots of sticks that ghostwriter and Dad have trimmed off the trees and bushes. 

I've been watching as Dad cut down even more sticks, and ghostwriter trimmed them into smaller sizes. Why they do this every year about this time, is a mystery to me. But if any of you doggies out there want some sticks, please feel free to come over and take them.

Some are big, and some are little. Some have carpenter bee holes in them and peeling bark. 

But you'd better hurry! Pretty soon Dad is going to get out the screaming dragon noisy obnoxious scary machine monster stick grinder thing, and make mulch out of these sticks. I'll be sure to keep you posted on this. 

And now we're going to have the food report from my esteemed and elderly colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel. 

I am NOT elderly!

Hello food fans! Our ghostwriter worked all weekend, so we didn't get to do my Saturday food report. So I'm going to present it now. The humans have been cooking some simple comfort food meals lately. First we have chicken tenders with mac and cheese and steamed vegetables. Yum!

Next, spaghetti and meatballs with steamed vegetables. Love those brussel's sprouts! 

Today they had enchiladas with Spanish rice for lunch. It was a frozen dinner they got from the Schwann's truck. It looked kind of boring, but it was actually quite good. 

Best of all, today ghostwriter made a big pot of chicken and rice soup with carrots and peas, with no salt or seasonings or onions or yucky celery! She made it just for me! She left on all the skin and joints too, exactly the parts I like the most!

Oh, excuse me. I almost forgot to take a picture before I ate it all up! 

And don't let Chester's pity face fool you. He got a little bowl of the soup too. He snarfed it up so fast that now he thinks he didn't get any and that I should share mine with him! 

There's plenty of kibble if you're still hungry, Chester! 

Now I'm going out to lounge in the dappled shade of my pear tree. 

Oh, we almost forgot! We have a great report from our North Carolina associate Angus B. Terrier! 

Hi guys!

There's some construction going on across the street from my house. Apparently more houses will be built there. So I took the time to photograph some of the big trucks there to show our favorite miniature human, Ryan. As we all know, Ryan loves trucks!

These trucks knocked down all the trees and flattened the ground so that a house can be built on it. 

Those trucks made a lot of noise and dust. So now, I'd better take a nap! 

Actually, taking a nap is not a bad idea! Good night everyone!
