Geeky Monday

Greetings fellow earthlings! This is The Daily Bone and I’m your perspicuous doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel along with my erudite colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel.

Our guest columnist Miss Charlee Puppy did a report on her humans’ science geek decorating using their favorite things to collect: skulls, giant bugs, and deviant art. Today we’ll show you some of our own human’s collections and photos of things they think are cool. 

You might be a science geek if your bedtime reading looks like this!

The clouds in the sky are a source of never ending interest, day or night. Doggies, remind your humans to take the time to look up once in a while and ponder the firmament.

Decorating with fossils is fun! 

Our giant trilobite. 
Table top with embedded fossils.

Be observant. There are cool things all around you in your own back yard! 

Beetle that was living under a rock.
Seeds that look like tiny feathers.
A tiny little mushroom.

There's a little science geek in all of us! All it takes is a little curiosity and wonder.



Here's a link to some photos of the Rochester shale trilobites. Lockport is about a one hour drive from where we live.


  1. Hi guys! Want to thank you for the birthday wishes. Yep, gotta keep a close eye on the peeps when they are preparing some foodables! We've seen some beetles like that a lot - but Mom is kinda freaked out by that spider

  9. That spidey dude was spidactular!! OMD!
    As much as growlmy hate spiders, that was one that she thought was neat to see. Dancing and showing off, BOL!
    Growlmy has been to Lockport, but didn't know about those fossil things. We have the Petoskey Stone here, a fossilzed coral.

    I found a salamander under a rock once...and beware, there are wasps that have nests in ground holes, and they will sting...ouch! Ask me and growlmy how we know...

  10. Nothing wrong with a bit of geekiness in our bog. Love the fossils. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  11. Cute little bloke, aye?? They reckon that's a mating ritual but I reckon he's dressed up for halloween. They are found around our way. Mum thinks she's seen 'em but never with their halloween gear on. That's a very impressive trilobite. Wish I knew what it was?? Watch out google ..... here I come!!

    1. Crikey ..... thanks google ...... now I know!!! We got those things at our place too only they are little and grey and alive. We call 'em slaters.
