But I Had A Great Time!

Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your effervescent doggie reporter Chester L. W. Stephens.

Wow! We got a lot of snow! It started yesterday afternoon, and kept up all night and through the day today. It's still falling lightly right now, and it's getting colder. 

I had a great time running through the deep snow! 

I don't think my esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Stephens was very happy about it. He kind of moped around and did his business and then went back inside.
Maybe it's a bit too cold for his old bones. 

But I had a great time snow swimming! 

I don't think my ghostwriter liked it. She had to drive home from work in it last night at 11:30pm and the roads were not plowed and she couldn't drive faster then 20mph without slipping and sliding. She said it was like being inside a snow globe thing. If she turned the high beams on, it was blinding. (Whatever that means.) 

But I ran all over the yard in the wonderful snow! 

Dad was a bit grumpy because it was his birthday and he had to shovel the driveway. 

But I enjoyed leaping through all the nice fluffy snow! 

My Jason human was grumpy in general today and didn't take me for a walk. Instead he shoveled the bottom part of the driveway at 6am and then went to work.

But I got lots of exercise frolicking in the fantastic, terrific, stupendous snow! 

The squirrel wasn't very happy because he didn't get a chance to raid the bird feeder. 

But I was more than happy to chase him completely out of our yard. 

I heard a certain ground hog was not happy to see his shadow, and neither were lots of people who now believe this winter will last a longer time!

Hooray! That means even more snow! 

Seriously, I don't understand what's wrong with snow.
