Saturday With Joey Dog

Hello friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your diligent doggie reporter and comestibles expert Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel. 

As you can see, I've had to endure a spring buzz cut by our groomer Miss Jacquie. Ghostwriter thinks Miss Jacquie is fabulous because she puts up with me and my obstreperous associate Chester L. W. Spaniel at her salon every couple months. She also always remembers not to put doggie perfume on us because it gives ghostwriter hives, and makes Dad sneeze. (Not that we doggies enjoy it either!) As you might remember, I hate getting my feet wet, and especially hate anyone messing with my feet. Grrrrrrrr. I am generally pretty easy going except when it comes to my feet! Cocker spaniels have fur between their toes that keeps growing. I like my toe fur, and keep it perfectly clean, if I do say so myself! In fact, I'm obsessive about it! Well, enough about that, lest you think I'm a total grump!

I actually have some excellent yum yums to show you from this last week. Dad fired up the old grill for the first time this spring, so we had a few delicious barbecued entrees. (Note some of these photos were taken before my buzz cut.)

First, there was a plain chicken breast, with some lovely rice, and steamed mixed vegetables.

Here we have something really special: grilled beef tenderloin, with asparagus, and wild rice.

Jamaican jerk seasoned salmon, mashed sweet potatoes, and steamed vegetables. 

Hamentaschen cookies! 

Schwann's Cookies and Cream ice cream. I get to lick the bowl. Dem's da rules.

Now it's time for a few funnies!

This one I dedicate to Chester:


We just got an update from our correspondent in North Carolina, Angus B. Terrier. He was out walking and found some beautiful violets! 

Wow!  Looks like spring there!

My favorite flowers are blooming right now: puppy willows!

Oh, and check out this trailer for an upcoming film about our favorite subject: pets!
This looks like great fun and we can't wait to see it! 

Time for a nap now. 

Oh, and do you see that bright blue bow stuck on my collar? That's from Miss Jacquie.


  1. Wow!!! We are drooling over those magnificent yum yums, Joey!!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  2. Yummy things to eat at your den!

    And you look quite handsome with your 'buzz-cut'!

    You know what" Its snowing hard here right now, Yikes! That makes those violet pictures furry heartwarming...our bluebells and daffies are covered in snow...sigh...

    Growlmy almost choked in her coffee when she perused your cartoons today, BOL!!

  3. You look very handsome. We have never had to go to the groomer, it sounds terrible. Have a great day!

  4. We've never heard of those kinds of cookies before. They sure do look yummy and so does that ice cream! The puppy willows are blooming here too, Joey!

  5. those cookies do look good - we have never heard of them before either

  6. Can we move into your house? Your pawrents have much better meals than ours do.

  7. This is a really great post, but we got hung up on the steak and asparagus! "Bow Wow" that looked GOOD!!!

  8. Mom doesn't let the groomer put any perfume on us either - it is really stinky stuff:) We have lots of fur between our pads too and it grows very quickly and very long. Mom had to get Phantom's trimmed very often because he would slide all over the floors. So we guess there is at least one good reason to get them trimmed. YOur plates look delicious. Mom says she needs to get some asparagus soon - it is all so nice these days.

    Happy weekend.

  9. OMD! your yum yums look so yummy and we can't wait for that movie to come out - there is a pug in it!!!!!!!!!
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  10. Oh yes, we'll have spring buzz cut very very soon!! You guys look great!
    And...speaking of food, your humans cook great food. Everything you posted looks so yummy!! Our mom just added asparagus and wild rice to her shopping list. Pets will be our 'must to see' film.

  11. Oh, you two looks VERY HANDSOME indeed!!!! I guess I'm lucky, Ma doesn't have any fu-fu to puts on my furs, so I stay smellin' like a doggie all the times! Yeah, she ain't so happy abouts that eithers, butts I say that's the price of havin' a water-dog! Lots of extra oils and smells! BOL!!!! Anyhu, at least you have a pawfessional doin' your's always a bit scary when Ma comes at me with the clippers..if you knows what I mean....

  13. Oh I forgot ..... Mum said to thank Oma for her saying. She said ...... so true, so very true!! She is feeling better today. Thankyou for thinking of her.
