Good evening ladies and gentlemen, doggies and kitties. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your indomitable doggie correspondent Chester L. W. Spaniel along with my intrepid associate Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel.

We doggies would like to make an announcement for the sake of our ghostwriter.
We have enough snow and ice. Thank you very much Mother Nature, but we don't need any more …
