Serious News

This is The Daily Bone and we’re your earnest doggie reporters Chester L. W. Spaniel and 
Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel. 

We have just heard that our esteemed Florida correspondent Miss Charlee Puppy was attacked by a big bad dog at a dog park yesterday. Charlee had her dew claw pulled off, but was otherwise unharmed. She had a terrible time at the vet who had to cauterize the wound so it would stop bleeding. Here she is, resting after her traumatic day.

We are very sad and horrified about this and hope Charlee gets better soon. 

Humans should never bring their doggie to a dog park if they cannot control their doggie! 

There has been lots of terrible, horrible news from the human world. You have only to turn on the TV to find out more. We will leave that up to your discretion.

In other news, we received yet more snow this morning. The forecast calls for more in the next few days as well, and there is a winter advisory in effect. This is our house with the big snow drift on top. 

The Evil Squirrel Cartel has been out and about this morning. We spotted one picking up seeds under the bird feeder. I’ll be keeping a sharp look-out both indoors and outdoors.

Joey dog and I did complete a few reconnaissance missions today.

We also did some good exercise running in the snow. So we’ll leave you on a more positive note. 


  1. so nice to meet you! Such cute babies! Learned about you from Molly! Following you now,

  2. Poor Charlee, what a horrid thing to happen to such a sweetie! Get well soon Charlee, sending you lots of loves and hugs.
    That snow is still very deep Chester, looks like great funs to play in but I hope the roads have been cleared so its safe for Mom to drive in.
    Don't forget to keep us updated on Charlee please Chester
    Loves and licky kisses

    1. We'll keep you updated on how Charlee is doing. She already feels better reading your comments!

      Princess, did you send your photo for the Valentine's Party?

  3. WE are SOOOOOO sorry to hear this about Charlee... POTP fur her...
    That must be why our mom insisted that our Dew Claws be stolen when the Dogtor stole our....... you know whats..

    OMD seeing your ROOF really lets folks understand JUST how MUCH snow you really do have...

  4. Crikey ..... is it the name? Maybe we'd best change it, aye?? How about Reginald? That sounds VERY sophisticated, aye?? Do you think it would suit me???
    Crikey .... is your house ok?? It's disappearing!!
    Take it easy and get better soon, aye, Charlee? I'm so sorry some drongo let his dog hurt you.

  5. Oh no! Poor Charlee! We are sending her lots of AireZen and healing vibes!
    Good idea to bury your nose in the snow, Chester. You never know where those evil squirrels can be hiding!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  6. We are sending POTP for Charlee and hope she is not traumatized from this incident!

  7. Oh! Poor Miss Charlee! I hope she feels better an heals up real fast.

    That's a cool drift on top o' yur house there. An nobuddy's gonna be doin any grillin with that grill fur awhile.

  8. Sending good thoughts for Charlee. We sure hope she won't be traumatized by this. What a horrible thing to have happen. That is one of the reasons mom won't take me to a dog park.

    Mom has stopped watching the news. Much too depressing and horrible lately.

  9. Charlee says thank you for all the warm wishes!
    She is doing okay, is extra cuddly, and leaving her bandage alone aside from a gentle nibble here and there. She refused to eat or drink anything until her daddy got home from work yesterday and has to take stinky antibiotics two times a day for the next two weeks. She was friendly with the other dogs she saw at the vet after the incident but freaked out when she saw a black poodle that was roughly the same height and color as her attacker which was out of sorts for her.
    I just don't understand why a man would bring a 130lb (at least) dog to canine cove when he knows it's ill tempered enough to have to be kept on a leash inside the park. Seeing a gigantic rottweiler attacking my 50lb american dingo was horrifying, equally horrifying was looking out the car window as I left for the vet and seeing that guy still in the park walking his dog like nothing even happened!

  10. Tell Charlee we send her POTP from us. You keep those nasty squirrels at bay!

  11. Poor Charlee!! I hope that nasty wound heals quickly. I'm so happy to be asked to the Heart to Heart dance by Joey - that is just pawsome!

    I am going to go to the groomer and get a shampoo so I am all soft and cuddly on dance day!

    1. Joey dog is thrilled! Thank you so much! Don't forget to send your picture to Murphy and Stanley. Joey sent his most handsome photo.

  12. Awww, poor Charlee Dog. How unthinkable that could happen, in a place you would hope was safe:(

    POTP to her and hugs, wags and licks, from me too.

    News, grwlmy prefers to her the headlines and then she puts the soothing music back on...or whatevfur else she can find to keep her away from blogs and stuff, BOL!

    You sure do have a load of that white stuff...about as much as we do here. We got more last night and today again...sigh...we had freezing drizzle too, that was slippery!

    1. OOpsie...tired growlmy...should be growlmy prefers to keep herself away...(maybe she needs a better proof reader, tee-hee!)

  13. OH NOES!!!! That is terribles!!! You tell Charlee I am thinkin' of her and that I hopes she gets better soon, and that I will poopie in that peep's shoes who brought that doggie, who had no business being at a doggie park in the furst place!
    You guys be careful in all that snow, okays!
    And make sure those tree rats mind their manners!!!!!
    Ruby ♥

    Best wishes Molly

  16. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! Oh no, get well soon Charlee!!!

  17. that poor baby, yesterday I didn't get to read the whole post when I left a comment...that is one of many reasons I never take Dakota to dog parks. My vet is anti them too.
