Worm Holes And Muddy Paws

Good day good friends! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your adventurous doggie reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel.

Today is a typical March day in Western New York. The wind is blowing, the sky is changeable, and things are starting to stir under the rocks. Ghostwriter and I went out in the back yard and turned over some rocks. Hooray! 

This is one of my favorite things to do! Look at all the interesting stuff we found! 

Worms and roots.

A beetle and some little round eggs (to the left of the beetle.)

I tried to catch that beetle. Come on out for an interview!

Slugs and sow bugs.

Look at all the great mud! Wow! 

And look at these muddy feet!

I guess you can figure out what happened next!  (Don't worry. I like the bath tub.)


This is a TDB fast breaking news flash! I have just spotted two of the biggest grackle celebrities in our back yard. Yes, it's the fabulous Loo Loo Dungchucker, and it seems she's being courted by famous birdie star Screech Shinyhead who's known for preaching about how dog farts contribute to global warming. They have broken out of the great grackle flying poo flock and struck out as a pair. Do you think it will last? Inquiring minds want to know! 

However, Mr. Mortimer Seedcruncher, CEO of Sparrows Incorporated, was not happy at all to see this illustrious couple snarfing up his birdie seeds. If you look carefully at the birdie feeder above, you'll notice four of Mr. Seedcruncher's super tough sparrow kick boxing team members are poised to drop poo bombs on them! 

Uh oh. Here he is personally confronting the much bigger bully birdies! They're giving him the stink eye. The team above is holding fire, waiting for the OK from their boss. It could get ugly, folks!

This looks like a job for the Double Doggie Homeland Security System! 

Get lost, grackles!


The Double Doggie Homeland Security System protects your home and property from those annoying screeching pooping grackles and other bully birdies. 

We tackle grackles. (We don't care if they're big Birdiewood stars either.) 
And barking is always free! 

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program already in progress. 


  1. WE had lots of rain on Sunday and the worms were all over our driveway and yard. Later when it dried a bit mom freaked out cause I was carrying around a dead worm! BOL! Silly Mom

  12. There sure are lots of things to find in the yard right now. Hey Chester we just realized you must live near us. While looking through your recent posts we saw a picture of the city of Rochester's skyline. We live in Penfield, NY! Maybe we are neighbors?

    1. Wow! That's amazing! We're in W. Henrietta. Did you know our friends Momo and Pinot live right across Lake Ontario in Toronto? Small world!

  13. Wait, what? You LIKE the bath tub? Could you come take my baths for me?

    Also we have many worms right now too as we do our yard cleanup for spring. Our person keeps moving them to the gardens, but sometimes the Chickens get them too!

    Did you try eating any of the worms or bugs or slugs?
