Memorial Day

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

I hope that everyone had an excellent Memorial Day. We put the flag up in front of our house and thought about our USA military heroes.

It was also ghostwriter and Dad's 36th Anniversary. They went out for lunch at their favorite Japanese restaurant. Ghostwriter had something with squid in it. Yuck! The other stuff looked pretty good, though. 

I know reporting on yum yums is usually my esteemed associate Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel's venue, but he hasn't been eating well lately. Our humans got him lots of different kinds of canned doggie food to try to find something he liked. He liked most of them for a while, but now turns his nose up at it. So today ghostwriter made him some chicken and rice soup. He was able to eat that OK. 

But we are terribly worried that the Doggie Chief Inspector, comestibles division, and founder of the Yum Yum Coalition, doesn't want to eat! 

In other news, our favorite miniature human, Ryan, came to visit yesterday. Here he is eating pie. By the way, Joey didn't turn his nose up at hot dogs and hamburgers and pie! 

Our Dad has been doing research on his geneology (whatever that is.) He recently sent some spit to be analyzed for DNA. He already knew that he's half Finnish. But now he's found out that ghostwriter, besides being half German, has a lot of Swedish DNA. Here's a picture of our Jason human who is visiting his sister Jessy human, in Florida. They're just about to go out fishing on the Atlantic Ocean. I think they look like proper Vikings to me! 

What am I forgetting? 

Oh, yeah, the weather report! It was pouring rain most of the afternoon yesterday. Look at the big puddle in our back yard!

But today was grand and sunny! Hooray!

We just heard that our good friend Noodle was so sad that his duck Franklin had to go over the Rainbow Bridge today. 

It was purely a coincidence that earlier today, we happened to find this video about 900 ducks that might cheer Noodle and his humans up:

It's sleepy time for me now. Good night!

  2. Thanks for the detailed report, Chester. We really hope Joey feels better real soon!!

  3. Growlmy says that I too have become a fuss-budget non eater pup...and then I will gobble it all up the next day. As long as I do eat something she says...

    Joey please eat, it will help you stay strong and make your peeps happy as well.

    We were supposed to have had some rain but noe came...and we actually need it, the grass is all brownish now..

    Glad you had a nice weekend...and that some quality time was given to remember and be thankful fur the sacrifices of others for us.

  4. Happy Anniversary to ghostwriter and dad! We hope your tummy feels better soon, Joey.

  5. Wow! Look at all those working ducks! Franklin was very good at catching and eating yucky insects like cockroaches, crickets, and even millipedes! I'm sorry that Joey Dog isn't eating well. I will cross my paws that it's nothing serious. Happy anniversary to your mom and dad! *Ear licks* Noodle

  6. Sorry that you are not eating well Joey. TRY. OKAY? It worries the peeps when we don't eat.

    Happy Anniversary to your Peeps.

  7. Happy Anniversary to your pawrents. We hope Joey feels better soon and starts eating better.

  8. Happy Anny Peeps. Maybe Joey needs some chicken and rice
    Lily & Edward

  9. We hope Joey dog starts to eat better. We had the same trouble with Phantom. We found the little Nature's Recipe tins of food on top of his kibble did the trick. The plain chicken was his favorite.
