A Strange Thing Happened …

Good morning. This is The daily Bone and I'm your steady, strong , and healthy doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

A strange thing happened to me last night. I personally don't remember it, but ghostwriter says it looked like I had a seizure (whatever that it.) She said I got all stiff and shaky, but didn't fall asleep or anything. It was gone in a couple minutes, and I've been perfectly normal since then. I have never had anything like that before. Ghostwriter and Dad are wondering if I got bitten by a shrew. As you know, I've been doing a lot of shnoodling in the snow lately, and there are lots of shrews in my yard. Shrews have venomous saliva. But no one can find any bite marks on me.

So I had to go to the vet this morning and get all poked and prodded. I was due for some routine shots and blood tests anyway. Bleah! I am still perfectly fine! We decided we're just going to watch and see if it happens again. Oh, and I got lots of liver snacks there at the vet for my trouble!

Hiding under Dad's seat in the exam room. 

So, enough about me! It's still cold cold cold out! 1º right now, with the sun shining! 
Check out the headlines from yesterday's paper! Wow! 

Now for some sad news: according to the weather forecast, it's supposed to get warm and rain by the end of next week. All our wonderful snow will surely melt. 


Well, it had to happen sooner or later. Hooray! Next comes mud season! 

Meanwhile, as you can see, I'm still fine, and I'm back to work at my look-out post. My esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel is back at his food-watching post. 

Perogies and steamed vegetables. Yum. 

Still OK. 


  1. Oh my darling Chester, don't you go getting poorly sweetheart! Oh, oh, my heart is all a flutter now, my big strong Chester, you keep away from them nasty shrew thingys! If you're short of liver treats I'll send you some, don't panic the peeps and me in to taking you to the Vet.

  12. Chester, those seizures are huge mysteries. Ciara has them and we still haven't figured out what causes them. There is a chance they are related to her thyroid levels going all wacky, but no test can tell us for sure. We hope yours was a one and done time. They can be very scary to watch. Stay well, pal.

  13. Oh my goodness we are keeping all our feets crossed for you. We don't want any seizure monsters around
