Wednesday Evening News

Greetings loyal readers! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your quintessential doggie reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel.

I have a very important announcement! The days are getting longer! Yes indeed, it's not pitch black outside at 5PM any more. And today, we actually saw a bit of blue sky and sunshine.

We even got to see a sunset, instead of more dreary, gray clouds at the end of the day. 

It feels like Spring is right around the corner! 


This just in from our good friend Angus in North Carolina:

Thanks Chester. Hello everyone. You'll never believe what happened to my humans! Remember that big blizzard on the East Coast last weekend? Well, my humans were in the Bla-hamas when it hit, and they got stranded there for a few more days. Imagine having to put up with that blazing hot sun, and dry itchy sand, and salty water, with nothing to drink except those big fruity concoctions served in coconuts with paper umbrellas on them! 

I'm sure these sea gulls weren't very exciting company! 

Meanwhile, I was relaxing at a premium deluxe doggie spa and country club. Here I am socializing with my friends. I'm the one on the top right walking over to check out the ladies.

We had a wonderful party during that blizzard, and then we went out to play in the snow! 

So my humans finally got home today, and they're all tired and sunburned. I, however, am quite rested and relaxed, and wondering when I'll get to see my doggie friends again. 

Thank you for that interesting report Angus! We're glad you're all home safe and sound at this time!

And now it's time for our feature comic this week. I'm sure all you doggies out there will like it! 

This one reminded me of our good friends Frankie and Ernie! 


In local news, we had some more snow this morning. Here I am with my esteemed associate Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel patrolling the borders and measuring the snow depth. It's barely an inch! 

But by mid day, it was already melting! 

Why does it keep disappearing? 

We're going to take a look back at this day in 2015. Wow! We had lots of snow then! 

Well, don't worry. We still have two more months of winter here in Western NY. That's plenty of time to get a proper blizzard with eight feet of snow, white-out conditions, gale force winds, icy roads, and a wind chill factor of minus 20Âș! Don't put those snow boots away yet ghostwriter! 


  1. we sure wish our snow would go away, but we are getting more ugh
    hurry up spring!
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  2. Wow thank you for all that great news. We have some snow and it is pretty cold right now. I don't mind the snow for a little while but it is pretty cold.

    Ziggy Out!

  3. We had some snowy ice yesterday and today another dusting...and *cold* winds, Brrr!
    But I heard its supposed to get warmer again fur a while in a few days...then all my snow piles will melt and growlmy will be able to go out, clean up, BOL!!

    Last night in the icy conditions...growlmy was driving home from her errands and there were peeps that were sliding off the road and it was so unnecessary, you could see the shiny ice and they were going too fast around the curvaceous roads...sheesh, will they evfur learn??

    I giggled and guffawed at that comic:)

    1. Ghostwriter says people always forget how to drive in the snow and ice. Just slow down!

  4. I'm still hoping for SNOW! Chester but its looking less and less like it'll arrive here.... only more RAIN! Oh I do hates getting my Princess paws wet
    Loves and licky kisses

  5. Angus sure got the better part of that vacation! We're with you, Chester and Joey - bring on more snow!

  6. CRIKEY Chester and Joey. Where's all your snow going? I'm STILL waiting for those pictures. Will it EVER snow big at your house, ever again!

    1. As we said in the end of this post, there's still plenty of time for a big blizzard. We've big dumps in March, ice storms in April, and one year we had snow on the lilacs on Mother's Day in May! Don't worry Charlie. If and when we get a big snow, you'll be the first to know!

  7. You are RIGHT ... WE, Also have noticed the Length of our days... THAT is a very good sign fur sure...

    We are so SO sorry that those POOR PEEPS got Stranded in that AWFUL location... hehehehehe

  8. days are never long enough for us - to many walkies - to many parks - all to explore

  9. our snow has melted but we heard we might be in for somemore next just nevers knows around here, ah sand, sea, relaxation...our mom is a tiny bit jealous.
