Mousie Monday

Hello there ladies and gentlemen, doggies and kitties. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your proficient doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

It was a dark and dreary morning. After the extremely busy day we had yesterday, my somnolent associate Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel and I expected to sleep all day. 

I went out into the yard with ghostwriter, planning to just do a routine border check and some doggie business. But by the shed, my excellent doggie nose picked up a scent!

Ghostwriter moved a few things around, and sure enough a mousie ran out! She says she saw it, and it was gray with pink paws and a long tail. It was hiding in the gap between the shed and the ramp. 

She moved the ramp away from the shed, and said it ran away behind the fence to the front yard. But I insisted on doing a detailed forensics analysis of the entire area, including inside the shed, just in case there were any more mousies lurking about the premises.

I'm happy to report I did not detect any mousies living in the shed. There was some lingering stench from the Evil Squirrel Cartel who commandeered the shed as their winter headquarters in 2010. But Dad installed steel mesh in the eaves where squirrels might gain entry, and so quashed any further real estate plans. However, it's the time of year the Miscellaneous Mousie Mob is seeking to infiltrate the human habitat in order to find a good place to spend winter. We can't have that now, can we?

I will be sure to keep you updated on the on-going investigation. Meanwhile, I'm going to save up my mousie hunting energy. 

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz …
