There Was A Mousie!

Hello everyone. This is The Daily Bone, and I'm your diligent doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.

As you probably know, late Autumn is the time when the Miscellaneous Mousie Mob gets ready to move indoors to get away from the cold winter. For the past couple weeks I was sure there was a mousie in our garage somewhere. I could smell it. I could hear it. I kept …


We interrupt your regularly scheduled program with a TDB news flash. It's snowing! I'm your on-the-spot doggie reporter Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel and I'm live in the back yard. It's SNOWING! 

… Ahem, where was I? Oh, I kept trying to get underneath Dad's work bench to catch the mousie. 

It was a smart and tricky mousie too. It took the peanut butter off the snap trap without triggering it. Dad didn't like to have to resort to using a sticky trap to catch it, but it worked. 

Wow! What a big mousie! I wanted to have the mousie, but Dad said no because I might get tangled up in the sticky stuff. He took the mousie away and I haven't seen it or smelled it or heard it since. 

I think I could have caught that mousie. I'm going to catch the next one that comes along!

In fact I'm going to dream about it, and think of how I'm going to catch it. Good night!


  1. Oh Chester, why do the peeps always spoil our funs??!!! I KNOW you could have caught that mousie! Yes, it was a big one, butts you know the big ones are slow movers. I am sure you will catch the next one...what would your peeps do without you??!! Hey, if you have any tips on how to catch the roof rat that has been taunting me at night by running across my canopy and power lines, I would be most appreciative....damn thing never touches the am I suppose to catch the little bugger??!
