Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your proficient doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.
As you can see, I caught a birdie! Cocker Spaniels are natural bird dogs, and I am an excellent bird dog. See the nice big birdie I caught all by myself? My esteemed colleague and fellow Cocker Spaniel Joseph (Joey dog) was outside too, but he was busy pooping at the other side of the yard.
When we went outside, there were a lot of noisy grackles up in the silver maple tree, squawking up a storm. We figured there must be a hawk or a crow around. But then one flew out of the tree and bumped into the house! It landed right in the middle of ghostwriter's garden. So I nabbed it!
Wow, did it squawk and flap! The other grackles dive bombed me. Ghostwriter chased me around the yard, but I wasn't going to let anyone get my birdie that I caught all by myself! Catching birdies is a Cocker Spaniels's job, after all!
I decided to try to hide it behind the bushes, but ghostwriter finally picked it up. It was quite limp and quiet by then. I don't know where she put it after that. Maybe she'll cook it for dinner. It was big enough for a pot pie!
