And Now We Have None

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program for this TDB news alert. I’m your concerned doggie reporter Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel coming at you live from the back yard. It’s an emergency situation! Someone has stolen the very last pear from our pear tree!

My energetic colleague, Special Agent Chester L. W. Spaniel is searching for clues as I speak. Our prime suspect is, naturally, a thug from the Evil Squirrel Cartel. Although, we have spotted an operative from the Conniving Chipmunk Consortium sneaking around the yard today.

Crawling under every bush.
Investigating every corner. 
Leaving no stone unturned.
The situation is dire. This year, due to the wet weather, the blossoms on the pear tree were ruined and only a precious few pears grew. 

Oh, wait … I think there’s been a discovery. Ladies and gentlemen, and doggies, yes, evidence has been found! It's a partially eaten pear! Yes. In this exclusive TDB photo below, is the last pear of the year! The top part has obviously been chewed by a small mammal.

Well, no sense in letting it go to waste!

This has been an exclusive TDB Live News Flash. All the news. All the time. As it happens. This is your humble reporter returning you to your regularly scheduled program. 

Oh, and one more thing: Happy Watermelon Day!


  1. Well at least someone got to enjoy the pear and I'm sure someone's going to enjoy that watermelon, aye??

  2. Put on yur lil Sherlock hat an go catch the Criminal who stoled the pear!

    Watermelon! That looks yummy!

  3. We blame the squirrels of course. Happy Watermelon Day to you. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. OMD they stole EVERY SINGLE PEAR! THAT is horrid. Chipmunks and Squirrels are furst cussins... BOTH are EVIL.

  5. I've been told pears make yer run. Maybe that is run faster, we haven't got a pear tree only an apple and a plum. Think plums make you go faster too.

  6. Enjoy that watermelon! Do you eat the watermelon rind as well? I love the rind. Good job on eating that pear! I agree! Why let it go to waste!
