Progress Report

Hello. This is The Daily Bone and we're your calm and collected doggie reporters Chester L. W. Spaniel and Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel. 

We're continuing to be good doggies today. Ghostwriter is feeling a little better. She says thank you very much for all your get well wishes! She can at least eat something now, but she's still tired. She's unhappy that she had to miss two days of work. But there was no way she wanted to give that illness to her co-workers or her little old people at the nursing home. 

We were up early this morning and saw a beautiful sight! 

This is the moon and planet Venus. (I hope my dearest Leah saw this too!)

Ghostwriter looked at and found out exactly what we were looking at:

Hopefully we'll get clear skies so we can look out again tomorrow morning. 

In other news, the Evil Squirrel Cartel has been dancing around in our yard for the last few days in trios. Here's an corpulent one chowing down on the hawthorn berries. Ghostwriter says he looked the size of a raccoon!

A second pudgy squirrel was seen skittering up the silver maple tree.

Squirrel number three, also obese, was hanging around under the birdie feeder! 

I had a good time chasing him out of the yard. He had to go up the silver maple, then shimmy his fat self down a skinny branch, and make a dive for the arbor vitae bushes. He then had to leap from one bush to another, and scramble through the hawthorn tree with me barking the entire way. It was great doggie fun indeed!

Grrrrrrrr! Get lost squirrel!

Other than that, we spent a good part of the day relaxing and keeping an eye on ghostwriter. 

Oh, and here's a tip for cat lovers. Have you seen this comic strip? It's called Breaking Cat News by Georgia Dunn, and you can find it on Well, you don't even have to own a cat to appreciate it! The artwork and characters are adorable! We doggies give it an A+ rating.

That's our report for today. Good evening. (Ghostwriter, are you going to eat the rest of that mac and cheese? Because we'll be happy to finish it up for you if you're not feeling good, you know, just saying … )
