Tranquil Thursday

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

Today we have nothing to report. It was cool and overcast all day. We spent some time just lounging on the soft grass, enjoying the nice breeze.

We didn't neglect our homeland security duties, though. Upon patrolling the yard, we found a bunch of bird feathers. They were very soft and downy, so we doggies suspect they were from a baby bird that may have been caught by a hawk. It wouldn't be the first time we've found things like that. There are a lot of hawks around here. We were pleased to hear that the grackles have decided to raise their raucous brood in the neighbor's bushes rather than ours. Hope he likes squawking!

There was no activity from the Evil Squirrel Cartel today. They gave up their real estate plans pretty fast this year, and probably went directly into foreclosure. Well, the housing market is tough in this neighborhood when it comes to squirrels! We did hear a few chipmunks discussing their options in flipping the half-demolished squirrel abode for a profit, but we doubt it's worth the effort. Oh, the drain pipe is still available, and it includes running water and free barking.

There's also quite a desirable plot still available back here, if you happen to be a toad! 

Whew! Being a real estate agent is a lot of work! 



  1. I luv lyin on da soft grass - so comfy! De best are when it are a lil wet and real cool on your belly.

  2. OMD hawks????? Looks like you are doing a good job of protecting your real estate. Don't let those pesky tree rats take up residence, we hear they never pay rent. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. We have hawks, eagles and turkey vultures close to us. It does look like you are excellent at Homeland Security. Keep up the good work!

    1. My humans say that thirty years ago they would never see hawks, eagles or even turkey vultures. Now they're all over the place! One morning my human was driving to the nursing home early in the morning, and there was an owl flying along the road. He was going 30 miles per hour, so she passed him! He gave her a dirty look.

  4. Crikey .... you wore yourselves out with all that patrolling, aye?? Will you still be able to see the grackles? I'm a bit fascinated with those blokes. Blimey your human overtook an owl and he gave her a dirty look? Was that WISE?
