Let It Snow!

Good day one and all! This is The Daily Bone and I’m your jubilant doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.

We had a big snow storm last night! Our ghostwriter said her drive home from work at 11:30PM was a half hour of hour of slip-sliding, white-knuckle horror, with snow blowing across the unplowed country roads. Well, she made it home anyhow. But now, we have twelve inches of lovely fluffy wonderful snow to play in!


The first order of business was a face plant in the snow. As you may remember last summer this group of brown stalks and seed heads were once beautiful cone flowers, alive with bees, flies, wasps, and butterflies. We left the seed heads standing because the little finches and sparrows like to eat them. They are also a big attraction to shrews. As per policy, I had to do a thorough investigation of this area for the Sneaky Shrew Squad.

Ah! There’s nothing more refreshing than a face full of snow! 

My esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel and I then proceeded to do our barking duties at the neighbors who were busily throwing their snow away with noisy snow-blowing machines. Hey, if you don’t want that snow, send it over here!

There is another corner of the yard that is prone to all kinds of small animals, like the Miscellaneous Mousie Mob, the Conniving Chipmunk Consortium, the Sneaky Shrew Squad, and even and occasional lone operative from the Secretive Bunny Militia on a suicide mission.

Here is where our humans store the hose caddy, my summer swimming pool, a big flower pot full of chives, the wheel barrow, and the glass picnic table.

Nothing here.

We've completed our surveillance. Time to play!

Oh the weather outside is delightful. And we don’t think snow is frightful*
And since we’ve no place to go,  let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! 

*because we don't have to drive in it!


  1. Wow Chester, you're running so fast that you're parting the snow like a plow. We don't have any snow in the city. Just rain and wind. So we're not having as much fun as you guys.

  2. OMD Chester we have been WORRIED about our furends on the EAST coast getting all that SNOW... and on the West Coast getting Way too much RAIN coming Too Fast...
