Barking Up The Wrong Tree

Hi there everybody. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your perceptive doggie reporter
Chester L. W. Spaniel.

There was a big birdie brawl going on this morning. The grackles, the robins and the starlings were all beating each other up over something. Ghostwriter kept telling me to look up in the bushes. But according to my trusty sense of smell, they're up the silver maple tree. 

"But Chester, look over there! They're in the next yard over in the bushes."

Nope, nope, nope. They're up this tree. My nose is never wrong.

"But Chester, they're right in the bushes behind the fence! Don't you hear them squawking and flapping?"

My nose tells me they went up this tree.

Yup. Some evil squirrels ran up this tree. I can smell their dirty little footy prints!

Who cares about a birdie fight when there are fresh squirrel tracks to follow? 


  1. We were pretty sure you were searching for those evil treerats. Hope the birdies came to a truce.

  2. Skwerril tracks are more important dan birdbrains fightin.

  3. Maybe them birdies in the bushes were angryat a marauding squirrel dude...or a hawk.

    Did ya find out??

  4. Crikey Chester ..... you're right. Squirrels are much better to chase than birds, aye??

  5. We're with you Chester..squirrels are much more evil!!

  10. Dear Chester,

    I think there is something wrong with the people. Their noses are broken, or perhaps clearly inferior. I mean, really - how could they not know that there were squirrel tracks there?
