A Very Dreary Day

Hello everybody. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your friendly doggie reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

It was a very gray day today! Most of our photographs came out dark because of the thick cloud cover. But as you can see we still have some snow in the back yard to give relief from the steady gloom. The Stodgy Robin Society came to visit our silver maple tree at precisely 5PM. Sometimes they just sit there looking down their beaks on us doggies and the other birdies! But today I saw them doing acrobatics as they tried to pick off the last remaining hawthorn berries. They were also down on the ground hopping around on the patches of lawn that weren't covered with snow. It looked like they were having a great time, and thought maybe they're not so snooty after all. 

So I ran out there to join them! 

I was wrong. They all flew away. 

Grumpy birdies! 


  1. We got da gloom and doom down here too.

  2. Sheesh...we hate when birdies get grumpy!

  3. Rude birds - you just wanted to have fun

  4. How rude for them to take off on you, Chester. You just wanted to be friendly!

  5. It was cloudy here yesterday but we don't have any snow. The snow looks like fun!

  6. Cloudy yesterday and today here Chester. Darn birds just don't have any manners do they?
