Hello fellow doggies, and honorable kitties, respectable humans, and fashionable hermit crabs too! Welcome to The Daily Bone! We're your diligent doggie reporters Chester L. W. Spaniel
and Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel.
Due to circumstances beyond our control ghostwriter thought that The Daily Bone was not posted yesterday because she got called into work and has now totally lost track of the days! Harumph! (Today IS Sunday, isn't it?)
First up, Chester on politics. As long time followers might remember, I once ran for President of the USA under the Squeaky Party, where we believe squeaky toys will solve world problems, and that everyone should have a squeaky toy. I mean, who wouldn't be delighted with a wondrous, amazing and marvelous squeaky toy? In my platform I suggested that we carpet bomb North Korea and the Middle East with squeaky toys. All those angry, nasty humans would be so happy with their new toys, they would stop being so mean, and decide maybe they don't really have to kill everyone else in the world after all. However, after so many years of continuous, and worsening violence, hatred, and terrorism erupting everywhere, I'm beginning to think that the human race has some serious problems that cannot be solved by squeaky toys alone. A huge arsenal of tennis balls would be needed too.
As for my political career, it seems that the process of electing a president has become too charged with hateful mudslinging, and I don't wish to drag my family through that ordeal.
Our Garden Buddha continues to offer suggestions to solve the mess this world is in now. He just got a new quote from the Dalai Lama, and maybe we should all take a listen to him!
"Conflicts arise when we dwell too much on secondary differences between us: differences of nationality, faith, whether we are rich or poor, educated or uneducated. What's more helpful to remember instead is that we are all human beings (and doggies) and from that point of view we are all the same."
And now I'd like to present a report about one of my favorite things: mud!
Indeed, our back yard is like a swamp right now.
Joey dog doesn't like getting his feet wet, but I got good and muddy. Upon coming back into the house, I was ready to jump in the bath tub.
|Time for a bath!|
|I love to play in the water!|
|Slorp, slorp, slorp, slorp, slorp …|
|Come on in Joey! It'll be fun!|
|Um … nope.|
Our weather man has predicted colder temperatures and snow by tonight.
I'll be sure to keep a sharp eye out for this! Please stay tuned for updates!

We had some bright blue skies and sunshine …
… for about fifteen minutes! Then the dark clouds soon moved in.
The wind hit like a freight train and the power went out for a short time.
At this time, we still have loud noisy thundering howling scary high winds, and it's starting to snow! The roads may be icy so we advise that you stay at home with your doggies until this storm passes.
