Autumn Day

Hello everybody. Welcome to The Daily Bone (Western New York Edition.) I'm your humble doggie correspondent Chester L. W. Spaniel along with my esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel. We will be doing a series of short reports today, since we have a lot of news to cover.

 The State of the Territory

Although it was rather dreary and cold today, we still went out to enjoy the autumn leaves. The backyard featured crisp, crunchy, dry leaves from the silver maple tree. The front yard was covered with beautiful, freshly fallen Norway maple leaves. We are proud to report there was no sign of the Evil Squirrel Cartel, the Conniving Chipmunk Consortium, the Miscellaneous Mousie Mob, or the Sneaky Shrew Squad!

A Sad Announcement. 

Our gecko Elvis passed away last night. He was a very, very old gecko. He devoured lots of crickets and occasionally grubs, grasshoppers, moths, crane flies, and June bugs. We buried him under a rock in the front yard. A lone katydid observed the burial. 

Election Day is Tomorrow! 

Please be sure to vote. I noticed this years elections were particularly filled with mud slinging. I tried rolling in some mud the other day while out on a walk with my Jason human. Things didn't turn out well for me after that, as you doggies can well imagine. I look forward to the day when elections focus more on the opponents' good attributes for a change, instead of all this character assassination!

Some Things I've Never Seen Before

Here are some photos my ghostwriter took especially for me while she was flying in a jet plane. You know how much I love to see jets flying in the sky!

Jets lined up for take-off in Baltimore
Fort Lauderdale and the Everglades 
Departing Orlando
Cloud footprints on the Atlantic Ocean
Rochester at Night. The blurriness is from the jet wash.

It boggles my doggie brain! Sleepy time!
