This is The Daily Bone with the on-going saga of Chester's birthday. I am, of course, your culinary expert doggie host Joseph (Joey dog) Stephens, Doggie Chief Inspector, comestibles division, and founder of the Yum Yum Coalition.
We kept it mum about the birthday all morning. At noon, Mom prepared a special treat: rice with a dollop of home made chili with beans, topped with cheese, and a tortilla chip.
Never being one to mind his manners, Chester jumped up for a sniff.
Much to Chester's surprise, we got to eat all of this delectable treat! I can assure you, it was quite delicious! Because of the shape of the bowls, we couldn't scarf the food down fast, but had to take our time and enjoy.
After a yummy meal, Mom filled up the bird feeder and threw some peanuts on the grass. As you know, Chester loves bird watching. A flock of blue jays showed up, along with some sparrows from the Shrubbery Gang.
Unfortunately, Mom has to go to work soon, so that's the end of the festivities for now. Well, we aren't ones for big celebrations in this house. We keep things simple. Oh, and in case you're wondering, Chester is now six year old.
