Good day ladies and gentlemen, doggies and kitties! 
This is The Daily Bone and I'm your amazed doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.

When my ghostwriter went to work at the nursing home yesterday, there were some visiting animals. Usually the animals are rabbits, birds, house cats, and even a snake. But this one is totally awesome! 

This is an African serval cat. Despite his fierce appearance, he was quite calm and cooperative. The owner said she raised him from a tiny kitten and he was very tame. Since ghostwriter was working, she didn't have time to get his name, but will be sure to find out the next time his humans and their animals visit.

Now here's a TDB News Flash! 

I was doing my visual surveillance and this is what I saw: 

What the … ?

Doggies away! 

My esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel and I chased that perpetrator out of the yard! 

We see you thieving varmint! Bark bark bark! 

And stay out! 

Can you believe it? 

I guess Special Agent Joey dog and I won't be getting much sleep today! 


  1. Crikey ..... how cheeky of that bloke stealing the birds' food. What's with that R2-D2 bloke???? He was just standing there doin' nothing. Hope your not paying him much!!

    1. Don't worry, Charlie. That guy will be plenty busy as soon as spring is here. But right now he has icicles growing off him!

  2. Oh Chester, my heart has just done a back flip! What a pawfect photo of you staring at the squirrel.
    Think I might print that out and frame it on my puppy box wall.
    Loves and dreamy licky kisses
