Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your diligent doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. We have a lot of stories to cover, so I'll start straight away.
First of all, I want to show you the beautiful post card I got from my dearest Princess Leah. As you may know, she spends her summer vacation at her own private royal tower at Chatsworth, or as she calls it, Chatters-Away. The postcard depicts the Great Dining Room. She said she wishes we could both have dinner at this amazing place. I can hardly imagine what fabulous, delicious, yummy gourmet food we would have!
Please visit Leah here: princessleahthecav.blogspot if you wish to see more of her adventures. But please be sure to come back to view the rest of the news.
We are in the middle of summer here in Western NY, and our gigantic hydrangea bush is blooming, and smells wonderful! And to think this bush started out as a little stick that one of the siblings bought at a flea market!
It's literally buzzing with bees and wasps and flies and moths and butterflies.
The echinacea flowers are also blooming in profusion. The bumblebees seem to especially love these flowers.
The other day, we found a fuzzy yellow caterpillar. My ghostwriter did not allow me to touch it because it can cause a painful rash. It's the larvae of the aptly named dagger moth.
In other news, my ghostwriter saw two little bunnies run out of the underbrush by the birch tree in the front yard when she was watering the garden. As you may know, the front yard is out of my jurisdiction. But ghostwriter took me by a leash so I could root around and see if I could find any more bunnies.
Nope! No more bunnies in here! But it was fun to look and sniff!
At work at the nursing home, ghostwriter spied a bunny eating seeds under the birdie feeder.
She said there were a couple chipmunks there too, but they didn't hang around for long. I wish I could go and check out the critters there!
Ghostwriter also said they were repaving the road that goes around the nursing home. Look look look lookie look! It's Ironing Board Man and his friends!
Long time readers will know that Ironing Board Man is my favorite super hero. Sometimes he looks like this:
And sometimes he looks like this:
But in summer, he likes to do some road work. He and his family can be seen at just about any repaving site in Western NY.
I hope many of my trusty readers remember that goldfinch who was making messes all over Dad's rear view window.
Well, he seems to be slowing down on his attacks on his own reflection in those mirrors. We think perhaps his babies have grown up enough to leave the nest, so protecting territory isn't as important as before. We'll sure miss that little bugger!
And now it's getting late. It seems the sun is going down a little bit earlier every day. I'm just going to take a little nap
I have to save up my energy for tonight. There will be a full moon, and I want to go out and howl a message to my dearest Princess Leah!
Good night everyone!
