Looking Back on 2016

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

It's that time of year again. As the new year approaches, we take a look back on events. So without further ado, here we go! 


The Double Doggie Homeland Security System. Keeping the yard safe from miscreants. And barking is always free. Photo ops, however, are two yum yum doggie treats a session!

Beautiful moon rising.


Hooray for snow!

Chester can play in the snow. I'd rather keep my feet dry.

Big flock of starlings visited us one day last February.

MARCH 2016

Enjoying a sunny day, with a spectacular sunset later.

Corned beef and cabbage. Yum!

Snow in April. Go figure!

Pardon me, but would you mind taking the twister seal off this suet cage?

No way! Bark bark bark!

On patrol.

Joey's pear blossoms.

Fiery Spring sunset.

Joey spent most of his time sleeping this month.

The next morning, he was gone …


Chasing a squirrel.

And stay out!

I'm a good squirrel chaser!


Oma's 90th birthday.

I've been told I have eyes on the back of my head. Do you see them?

September moon.


Long shadows.

Fall colors.

Trick or treat.


The leaves fell down all at once!

Early snow.

Ice sculpture.

  3. That was a busy year! And so sorry you lost your buddy. That must have been awful.

    Now, on a completely different note: you have an Oma?? Guess what, I had one too! And an Opa as well! Does this mean you're part Dutch??

  14. Chester....we just recently met you, and did not have the pleasure of knowing Joey in the furs, but through your loving eyes. We were glad to see the recap of Joey and you in the first of of 2016. What a handsome duo. We were glad to see the first 1/2 of 2016 was good and your dual adventures were excellent.
    Hugs and kitty kisses and may 2017 be filled with healthy and tons of good food and most of all LOVE!
    Madi your bfff
