Howdy! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your energetic doggie reporter Chester L. W. Stephens. It's been a busy few days!
First, we hope every one is rested up from yesterday's Blogville Rodeo. What a great time that was! Here's a photo of my rip-roaring colleague Joseph (Joey dog) and me roping squirrels. Yee-ha! We'll be having barbecued squirrels for dinner tonight! Many thanks to our good friend Ruby for inviting us to participate in this event. Visit Ruby at rubytheairedalepup for more squirrel roping fun!
Next we watched some mutton-busting with Mabeline down at the Idaho Pug Ranch. Now, who would have thought a regal princess from the UK would be in a rodeo riding a wild sheep? Well, here she is: my favorite little gal and expert mutton-buster, Princess Leah! Check out the royal purple boots and hat with a purple feather! Please visit Mabel (aka Mabeline) at idahopugranch for lots of great action! Oh, and be sure to visit the Princess at princessleahthecav .
Dory and her brothers hosted the Blogville square dance. Please visit Dory at dorysbackyard for the full scoop! Remember to scroll down to the bottom of the blog page to find more links to the Rodeo fun.
I thought we all looked great in our cowboy boots and hats! Thank you to the fashionable Dory and her human for providing the attire! We have a pair of cowboy boots up on the shelf. Ghostwriter took them down for a photo. These are Dad's very first pair of cowboy boots that his mom had bronzed. I think they might be a bit to heavy to dance the Achy Breaky Heart to.
Now for a change of venue. This next section is dedicated to my dear Princess Leah.
It's Flower Friday and we usually show pretty flowers, often along with the insects that visit them. Sometimes the insects are not so pretty. Don't worry! No creepy crawlies today!
Early this morning, everything was covered with dew.
A dove showed up at the window feeder.
|Hi. I like bird seeds.|
As it got warmer out, the dew dried up. We finally saw what Princess Leah calls "buttie pillars!"
We're still waiting for some monarch butterflies to show up on our milkweeds!
And for our last story, there was a bit of squirrel busting to do today too!
|Do you see what I see?|
|Look! It's climbing up the pole.|
Here's one last flower picture. It's a huge sunflower that grew from a random seed a birdie dropped by the back door. It's just starting to open. Now I know I promised, no creepy crawlies. But ghostwriter didn't see that big daddy-long-legs spider hiding in there at first! Do you see him too? Just pretend he's not there. I think that's what he wants you to do.
Whew! I'm going to sleep good tonight.
