New Digs

Hi hi hi! This is The Daily Bone and I’m your faithful doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.

I’m still getting to know a lot of the blogging doggies and their humans on line at Blogville, and I’m a bit behind in the events. So when I found out today was Dino Dig Day, I was at a loss for what to do to celebrate. I had already conducted a major dig in the compost pile a few days ago, and published my results. The mousies in there vacated the premises. You might remember that we also destroyed the Evil Squirrel Cartel’s plans to build a squirrel condominium in our big silver maple tree last week. However, I’ve been hearing members of the Conniving Chipmunk Consortium chirping back and forth just outside our yard lately. The CCC is usually quite harmless except when they find a way to get under the aluminum siding on our house. For that my esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel and I have been contracted to foil their real estate plans too.

Still wondering what I should do for Dino Dig Day, I wandered outside to do my business. Suddenly I picked up a scent! It was coming from the log pile in back of the yard. I immediately identified that scent as chipmunk, and began an investigation.

These logs are quite large, so it will take a concerted effort to access the chipmunks underneath.
I think I’m going to be busy digging for a while. 


  1. THAT is a WONDERFUL DIG fur the Day. GUESS WHAT??? WE have had LOGS and LIMBS Just like YOURS... in our THICKET.... and they were full of Chipmunks... butt mom said the Logs and Limbs HAD to GO... so just like YOUR dad... OUR dad (AND MOM) have been cutting and trimming and BURNING stuffs like wild Peeps. OUR beloved Brushpiles are down to HALF their Normal Length ... AND that's not the WORST.... they are gonna burn MORE and then..... THEN the Tree Trimmer/Cutter down guys are coming next week to take down the BIGGEST of the thingys... WE are gonna be livin in a Desert...
    Maybe we could come to YOUR HOUSE... we LOVE to do Chipmunking... and those logs and limbs look like they would be FULL of them..

    1. We hope you get to keep at least some of your thicket. A doggie's got to have a place to explore and a tree to pee on!

  2. Crikey ..... did you finish diggin'? Did you find anything?? Maybe your STILL diggin'!! You might reach Australia and we can go diggin' together ...

    1. I got summoned back in the house for dinner before I could catch anything. I had no idea I was such a good digger! Maybe someday I'll dig a hole to Australia! Then we could go get those chooks!

  3. Pawsome attempt dude. We are so jealous of all that vermin you have there to hunt. Please send us some. Have a serene Sunday. Hope you are looking forward to some big easy today.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Dear CLW,

    Nice digging! We have ratties in our yard - would you like to come help with those? (They're lots of fun!)
