Thursday Night News

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

It's about 11am here. I'm outside with snow falling on my nose. Thankfully, ghostwriter is off work today, so she doesn't mind if it snows all day long! 

I'll be sure to update you on the amount of snow we have through out the day. 

Snowflakes taste yummy.

Sunday was my favorite miniature human, Ryan's fifth birthday. He went to a Rochester Amerks hockey game and met a gigantic walking, talking squeaky toy! Wow! 

Later he celebrated with pizza and chocolate chip cookie cake, and lots of presents! One of these presents was a game that featured the Evil Squirrel Cartel called The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game.

A game about squirrels????


But apparently you have to pick up little acorns and put them in your hiding place.

The squirrel acorn picker-upper tong thing.

The spinner tells you what color and how many acorns you can get. The first squirrel to fill up his hidey-hole is the winner. But there is a spot on the spinner that says a big storm comes along and blows all your acorns away! Hahaha! 

Well, Ryan had a good fun time playing the game with Uncle Jason. (You can see Ryan's mom Cathy in the background of this photo. Notice her tummy. She going to have a baby girl soon and Ryan will be a big brother! Wow! We'll be sure to make the announcement when the time comes.)

And now for a weather update.

3pm and it's still snowing a little. We've got a couple inches of soggy wet snow on the ground. But it's supposed to stop soon and then get warmer again. I'm beginning to think that WNY weather is playing games with us! Is this all the snow we're going to get?  REALLY??? This time in 2015 we had tons of snow! 

6pm. The snow is melting quickly! I bet by tomorrow morning it'll all be gone. We watched the local TV weather report, and it's supposed to stay warm and rainy for the next week. 

I still think there's got to be at least one more big blizzard before Spring!

Now I have a very sad story to report. Our esteemed and honorable friend Sarge (aka The Commish) has unexpectedly crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Sarge was a famous and beloved figure in Blogville who headed up the  police department, and participated in many Blogville events. Blogville will never be the same without you, Sarge!

I'm sure Sarge is now running with our Joey dog along the beautiful Clarion River in summer and climbing up the mountain to the fire tower in Cook Forest and listening to the wood thrush piping in the trees.

  1. The weather is just gone crazy. We had 70 degree weather yesterday and snow today. Go figure.

  2. That game looks like a fun game even if it does have squirrels:) Yu have more snow than we do. We have ice.

    Happy Birthday to Ryan - five already? WOW!!!

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  3. Thank you for sharing your world as well as remembering Sarge. He is deeply missed, as is Joey.

  4. Happy 5th birthday to your darlin' little human Ryan. You are a lucky pup and he is a lucky guy!
    Sarge's unexpected passing was very sad. He and The Hands taught us a lot about doing crazy things in Blogville.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  5. We are snowing now and another big storm to come this weekend. we are ready for spring
    Happy Birthday to Ryan!
    Hazel & Mabel

  6. At least ya had snow. All we had wuz rain.

  7. I haven't gotten nearly enough snow either, Chester! Happy 5th Birthday to Ryan!

  8. We are hoping for more snow too. Our yard is so muddy we are only allowed out to do our business. Sarge will be very missed in Blogville.

  9. I'm furry sorry to hear about your pal Sarge. I didn't know him, but I know I would have liked him! Happy Birthday to Ryan!!

  10. The snow is so pretty but we find the squirrel game disturbing. What if kids start liking tree rats more than us?? What? That will never happen? Mom says it is okay. No Worries. Happy birthday to Ryan.

  11. Chester L. W. Spaniel I think they made that game all wrong, why who ever heard of going after the acorns ~ you goes after the Squirrel every good dog knows that. We got to meet Lori Sarge's peep she is the nicest person. It is indeed sad that Sarge had to leave for the Rainbow, so many gone.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot

  12. Our snow is all gone too, but instead we had way too much rain...and bad floods all around here.
    It sure was a sad thing to hear about Sarge.
    Little Ryan is growing up for sure! Maybe he can lure some real squirrels to your yard for you to chase away! BOL!
