Lonesome Dove is Back

Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I’m your observant doggie commentator Chester L. W. Stephens. 

Here I am doing my doggie surveillance duty, sniffing for mousies and for squirrel and birdie footprints under the snow. If I had looked up, I would have seen the mourning dove peering down at me from the pear tree.


  1. Does lonely dove know the way to the birdie feeder station ?
    I see you've still got plenty of snow, can't you spare me just one snowball to play wiv? I would ask for a snow freak but I finks that would upset Frankie and Ernie who have probably only just got over the December influx!

  2. We would gladly send you all of our snow if we could, Princess! Or you could hop across the pond and visit us. But it's also very cold out. You'd have to bring your warmest coat.

    The dove spends a lot of time sitting inside the window box feeder when he's not up in the pear tree. He is certainly well fed, and not afraid of Joey dog and me!

  3. Poor lonely dove. Maybe it won't be so lonely in the springtime.

  4. The dove is probably enjoying the show you conduct :-)

  5. Poor lonely little fellow. Have a terrific Tuesday and stay warm.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Poor LONESOME DOVE..... wonder if he knows any BLUE PIGS? Hope he stays away from Po Campo though...that guy would cook him up with grasshoppers and stuffs...

  7. We got some birdies here too - includin dumb doves who keep flyin into windows.

  8. I'd say you had a captive audience in that dove. Stay warm!

  9. Hmm...the dove looks lonely. Maybe he needs a friend and some more food.

  10. He must be hoping that you'd uncover something yummy, Chester!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  11. We miss mourning doves :-(. They used to have them where we lived in Texas....but we haven't seen up here in the Northwest!

    Great yard surveillance technique Chester!!

  12. We have a pair of doves that hang out in our back yard in the summer!

  13. Was that purdy dove cooing and oohing at ya?

    We have lots of them here, too.
    Good thing your dove has a food source in this frigid cold ad snowy conditions.

  14. Dear Chester,

    Is that a dove? We do not have those here. Wow.

    Ojo would like to know if they are tasty?


    1. I have never caught a mourning dove, despite the fact they're not particularly smart, so I don't know if they're tasty. But they're a lot of fun to chase.

  15. Looks lonesome, but very pretty!
