Serene Sunday

Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I’m your humble doggie host Chester L. W. Spaniel, along with my esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel.

We had a very busy Saturday! It was so busy that our friend Molly wished us a serene Sunday. So we tried our best to do exactly that. We sat in the sun on the nice soft grass, and breathed in the air that smelled like lily-of-the-valley, and sweet woodruff, and a moldy tomato in the compost bucket. None of the neighbors had any chores to do, so there were no noisy lawnmowers, or vacuum cleaners, or kids hollering. No motor cycles and loud music. Even the grackles were still.

Blissful peace. 

Wonderful quiet. 

But then, all our people showed up! 

We ran after Ryan.

And ran around Ryan.

And fetched the tennis ball. 

Throw it again!

Run run run! 

We had grilled steak, and strawberries, and rice, and vegetables, and ice cream for dinner. Yum. And then they all went  home. 



  1. Wow you had steak. Nice one pals.
    Have a great memorial day and a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Crikey Chester ...... good to meet you and Joey .... thanks for dropping by my blog. Mum's going to follow you so we can keep up on your antics. You're two good lookin' blokes. Mum LOVES Cockers. She had one when she was little. Just a few questions, mate ...... What's the L.W. stand for? AND what the heck is a grackle? You live in NEW YORK?? Crikey ..... that's one awful busy place, aye?? Mum and Dad went there in 1990. They LOVED it!!!! I think they were glad to get home though. Soooooooooooo many people!! We are going to read more of your blog when we get a bit more time. It will be good to get to know you! Hoo Roo for now .... Charlie.

  3. Whoops ..... think I forgot to click the notify me button. Did it this time ...... Hoo Roo!!

  4. Thanks so much for visiting our humble blog. Great to meet you! A grackle is a big blackbird that's very common here. They can be quite noisy with a voice like a squeaky hinge. Your bell birds sound so much nicer! We live in the western part of NY State, closer to Niagara Falls than NYC. Lake Ontario is just about 20 miles north of us, and the Finger Lakes (and wine country) to the south. We're glad your folks enjoyed the big city. L. W. stands for Lou Who because when Chester was a pup the kids thought he looked like a Dr. Seus character. Chester thinks L. W. sounds much more dignified for a professional doggie journalist! The boys have never met a whippet, and look forward to reading more about your adventures. See ya!
