Hello everybody. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your enterprising doggie commentator  Chester L. W. Spaniel along with my esteemed associate Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel.

We've been noticing that several of our doggie blogger friends are quite fond of sticks. Unfortunately we don't have any interest in sticks. (I adore squeaky toys, and Joey is passionate about yum yums.) To each his own, we say. But we do happen to have a wonderful pile of sticks in our own back yard. Being the entrepreneurial types, we would like to offer our stick pile to doggie stick fans everywhere. 

As you can see, there is a great variety of sticks in our pile. There are long sticks, short sticks, crooked sticks and straight sticks. Some are quite old, brittle, and well-seasoned, while others are fresh, and supple. There are sticks from maple trees, pussy willows, lilacs, arborvitaes, yews, and even some of the tougher stalks of last years cone flowers. You are free to adjust the length of your stick according to your personal specifications to maximize your chewing or fetching enjoyment.

They all have been given our exclusive doggie pee identification treatment so you will always remember where the stick came from. You can also be assured that these sticks have never been exposed to harmful pesticides or other chemicals. However, we cannot be responsible for any insects who may be residing under the bark. (Just think of them as added protein.)

I have a concern that these sticks have been providing shelter to several organized crime syndicates such as the Miscellaneous Mousie Mob, the Conniving Chipmunk Consortium, and possibly even the Secretive Bunny Militia. I would really like to get to the bottom of this pile, and soon! 

The price for a stick is only two doggie yum yum treats. But you have to act quickly. Our humans are planning to get the horrid stick-eating monster noisy machine out of the garage and stuff all those sticks through it where they will be turned into mulch. So please, send your orders in today! 

Please note, the sticks that have pears growing on them are not included in this offer. 


  1. We agree we think there is contraband under those sticks

  2. we have never been interested in sticks either ...come to think of we don't do toys either - but we do like treats :)

  3. OH YES...... those pesky Critter DO like to hide in a Stack of Sticks, don't they? Ernie and I would be glad to take a couple of them off your paws...

  4. We only have small trees in our yard, so we would love some of those big ones. We will even give you at least 10 treats per big stick - now how do we get them here?

  10. I don't care bout sticks much either.

  11. I have a huge pile of sticks that will leave lots fur others...and any more will just invite more varmints...someone of them is beheading growlmy's poppies and coneflowers back there...maybe we need to recruit one of the resident garden snakes to help in the war against all varmints!
    Growlmy saw a huge snake last time she beheaded all the green shafts known as was all she could do to prevent me from knowing it was there. Cause I consider those to be varmints, too, despite what growlmy calls them...\
    Guard those sticks well, to keep the varmints out!
    You are gonna have some yummy pears!

  12. Wow!! It is like your own private stick garden!!!
