Miserable March Monday

Greetings. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your windblown doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

Our ghostwriter had to work evening shift for the last three days, so we totally missed any kind of Easter celebration. We did not color eggs. We did not put on funny bunny ears. We did not cook a fancy meal. We didn't even have any marshmallow peeps! But it was nice and sunny those days. Yesterday it was downright spring-like. But not today! It's rainy and very, very windy. It's so windy, people's garbage cans are blowing around the neighborhood! We went outside for not more than five minutes and took some quick photos of me and my not-so-enthusiastic colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel.

We didn't see any Easter bunnies in our yard. Not even the Evil Squirrel Cartel showed up. However, someone sent us this photo: 

You have GOT to be kidding me!

We have a few miniature daffodils blooming. They come up reliably every year no matter what. 

We noticed the pear tree is just starting to put out buds. 

But it's starting to rain again. Time to go back inside and take a nap! 

Oh, but being up so late at night waiting for ghostwriter to get home from work had it's advantages. We got to see the moon rise up through the trees and the clouds. Last night it was very still and somewhat warm. We opened the kitchen window and listened to all the little spring peepers singing. 

They sounded just like the ones in this song. Listen carefully.

Hi Princess …


  1. The daffodils are beautiful. Mom really should plant some of those up here. Most of my snow has gone and now there is glorious mud for me to play in!

  2. Hello my dearest Chester, is that you on the moon phone?
    My it is good to hear your bark after soooo many cloudy nights!
    Loves and licky kisses

  3. Maybe you can schedule Easter for when your ghostwriter has the day off. Great photos!!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  4. We have a rainy day here too but your daffies are sure bringing smiles to our mom's face☺

  5. OMD NOT A SINGLE SOLITARY PEEP??? PEEPS... the Candy Kind... are Fabulous...
    We think the WIND must have blown the Bunny.. and the Squirrel Cartel Far Far away from your place. Sorry about that... Well, not that the SQUIRRELS got Blown away... beclaws THAT is a GOOD thingy... RIGHT?

  6. It's getting to Spring up here too. Thank goodness we can look forward to 5 more days of sunshine.

  7. OMD! We can't believe you already have daffy dills blooming! We have a little greenery poking up but our daffy dills are a couple of weeks away from blooming and we live so close to you.

  8. What a beautiful moon! I hope ghostwriter gets some evenings free soon to spend some quality time with you. She's such a hard working lady.

  10. Oh, it's been windy here too! We gots leaves all overs, and Ma has gotten her leaf blower out twice todays (some of our trees drop leaves year ) Anyhu, aside from attackin' the leaf blower, it's no funs, cause the wind blows my bubbles away! So I gives Ma the stink eye.
    Loves the pics! I hopes you guys gets some Easter like celebration soon...likes maybe some bacon! It's kinda like Easter ham, right?!

  11. We have some mini daffs, too, and today they decided to open up their pretty yellow cups. The bigger ones will bloom much later.

    We had a cloudy dank day here too...but the wind was not like a roaring monster. We did have that a few days ago.

    Hope your sunshine returns, at least on your ghostwriter's days off...

    Lovely moon there! And we have froggy peepers at our pond down the road. They sing loudly, and even keep growlmy awake when its open window times...

  12. Our mom did not get the memo either. Wienie

  13. Yeah, I got nothing for Easter too! My typist loves those daffodils!
