The Stinky Mulch

Good day everyone. this is The Daily Bone and I'm your perceptive doggie 
commentator Chester L. W. Spaniel.

Today some alien invaders were spotted in our next door neighbor's yard. There's one of them right now. See that one-wheel thing he's pushing? It's full of mysterious, stinky mulch. My vigilant associate Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel and I went out and barked at them, but they just ignored us. Perhaps they don't speak Doggish.

Yup. That sure is some stinky mulch! I would love to roll in it!

How come our mulch isn't all nice and stinky like that. In fact, our mulch is nothing but pine cones! 

Ouch, ooch, ooch, ouch, ouch.

Joey dog here. Don't tell Chester, but ghostwriter gathered up all those pine cones and put them there as mulch to try to keep him from trampling the irises. He doesn't like stepping on those prickly pine cones. 

Hey, I heard that! 


  1. Chester Chester Chester.... we think that your peeps have been trying to pull a fast one on you.... THAT is NOT right... WE think you should gather some Pine Cones.... and stuff 'em in the peeps SHOES... See how THEY like it.

  2. Too bad ya don't get da stinky kind.

  3. Mabel would just try to eat those pine cones

  4. Crikey ..... that's totally unfair. Look at all that good mulch and you can't get to it. I'd like to roll in it!!

  5. My doggy cousin Murphy likes to try and eat that stinky mulch...BOL!
    Then he digs it right out of the garden beds...yup a digger terrierist like me, BOL!

    Now growlmy is going to collect pine cones, too...sheesh, why did you have to let her see that.

    Call in the squirrels to get those pine cones out of there!!

  6. What a mean trick but it looks like the pinecones are working because we see pretty iris buds! Our mom LOVES the smell of mulch and it's probably because we don't buy ours either and use whatever is available for free!

    Love ya lots♥

  7. They ignored YOU!!!!!!!! They sound very odd peeps to me
    I luffs chewing pine cones so I would be picking them up and bringing them in to the sitting room fur a nibble. You would not believe how much of a mess I can make wiv a piney one!

  8. Dear Chester,

    The mulch is always smellier on the other side of the fence. Or the grass is always greener... Or something like that?
