Catch Up Time

Hello. This is The Daily Bone, Princess Edition, and we're your adventurous puppy reporters Rosie and Baby Spaniel. 

 We've had a busy week around here. One minute it's snowing, and the next it's raining, or windy, or all three together. There have been lots of different birdies at the feeders, or singing in the trees, or flying over in big flocks too. We hardly know where to start this report! Here are some pictures, in no particular order (because our ghostwriter can't even remember what order they're in!)

Blue sky with moon

Gray sky with storm clouds

Geese flying over


Cardinal and Dove

Fresh snow again

Crazy icicles

Sunset snow squall

Evil Squirrel

We can assure you that we continue to chase those crummy squirrels out of our yard. Oh, and we've also just learned how to catch the few ants that seem to want to come visit us indoors. On top of all that we keep pretty active romping and playing. 


We follow our humans everywhere. Well, almost everywhere.

Oh, so you're finally done in the bathroom?

And we take lots of sleep breaks to recharge our super power puppy batteries. See you later! 

Note from ghostwriter: 

I'm sorry we've gotten very behind with our blogging, both visiting our friends and writing The Daily Bone (Princess and Heavenly Editions.) Those two pups keep us crazy busy! Hopefully we'll catch up soon. 

I was very surprised, and honored, to see Rosie and Baby featured on our good friend Foley's blog as the Pups of the Week! (link below.) It will probably be some time before our two puppy girlies reach Chester's level of professional journalism. Thank you for the encouragement!

Snow Fun

 Hello. This is The Daily Bone, Princess Edition, and we're the puppy reporters Baby and Rosie Spaniel. We are on location in our back yard where a significant amount of snow has fallen in just a short time. 

Around 12 noon our yard looked like this:

By 5PM, it looked like this: 

Some of the birdies weren't very happy about the snow. Can you see the three mourning doves sitting in the tree in the picture below?

Mr. Cardinal wasn't too thrilled either! 

The birdies finally decided they'd make a run for the birdie feeders before it got dark. 

This is the most snow we puppies have ever seen! 


The weather reporter guy said it was going to keep snowing until tomorrow. 

I guess we'd better rest up for it. 

This has been The Daily Bone, Princess Edition, signing out.

Other Creatures

Greetings friends and fans! (That's how it's supposed to start, right?) This is The Daily Bone, Princess Edition, and we are your student doggie reporters Rosie and Baby Spaniel. 

Seeing that this is our first winter of our lives, there are a lot of things to discover. Apparently, there are many creatures that are not doggies or humans! Wow! 

Here's a picture of a squirrel and a birdie in our back yard. 

Upon discovering these creatures, we proceeded to approach them with great caution. This was not because we were afraid of them; but because we cocker spaniels are the smallest of the hunting doggie breeds, and stalking prey comes naturally to us. Here we go:

Quietly stepping out into the garage.

Pausing to peek out the back door.

Slowly inching closer. 

OK. The coast is clear.

The birdies flew away, although the little ones called chickadees stayed in the nearby pear tree. Some of the bigger birdies flew into the oak tree and started calling us jerks. Our ghostwriter says these are grackles and they are very rude.* 

Ghostwriter says that squirrels are usually quite rude too. However, they soon discovered that we puppies can run a lot faster than our esteemed, but arthritic predecessor Chester L. W. Spaniel. Now they depart with great haste if they so much as get a glimpse of us. 

There were a few other creatures we've recently seen. But our ghostwriter said we would not be chasing these any time soon.

Our ghostwriter also asked which one of us left a poop on the carpet in her office while she was writing this glowing report for us.

Who, us??????

Icy Icy!

 Good evening. This is The Daily Bone, Princess Edition, and we are your on-the-spot student reporters Rosy and Baby Spaniel.

We are on location in the back yard and standing on solid ice! Yes indeed! A few nights ago something called sleet and freezing rain (according to our ghostwriter teacher) fell from the sky. Since this is our first winter here on Earth, we have never seen anything like this before. The next morning everything was covered with ice. It was very fun to look at, and eat. Icicles are delicious! 

Ghostwriter and Dad have been very upset about all of this ice. We think it had to do with them not being able to go anywhere. They said something like the ice on the cars was so thick they couldn't get the keys into the locks, and the driveway was like a vertical skating rink, whatever that means. Incidentally, this was fine with us. Where else would they want to be except home with us?

Today is got warmer out. The sun shone through all the ice in the treetops and the icicles hanging from the roof. 

Then it got windy. Suddenly there were shards of ice flying off the trees and slabs of ice sliding off the roof tops with a big crash! The clouds were zooming by faster than the two of us puppies could zoom around the yard! 

But mostly the sun shone brightly into our window and that made the perfect sun puddle for us to take a good comfy nap.

See you next time!

We Got Some!

 Hello everyone. This is The Daily Bone, Princess Edition, and we're your puppy reporters Baby and Rosie. 

We were just minding our own business, playing with our toys, when this happened:

The bright red Cardinal was sitting in the pear tree wondering at this too.

So we went out to run and play!

We were super tired after that.

And now for a word from our angels Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel and Chester L. W. Spaniel:

Hey everyone! We sent the snow back to you! 

If you check out The Daily Bone from February 22, 2015, you'll see that we had tons of snow! 


If you're wondering who Charlie is, he was an old blog friend of ours from Australia. He used to ask us to show him some pictures of our snow, since he's never seen any himself.
