Tuesday Evening News

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

As you can see in the picture above, it's very windy out. My ears are flapping while I'm just standing here! I've been remiss on my posting, so now I have a very busy report for you.

On Sunday, my favorite miniature human, Ryan, came over for dinner. He's not so little anymore.

And he still loves to play with cars and trucks.

Maybe the next time he visits we can go out and run around the yard.

Monday morning I saw old Fatty White-Ears the squirrel gobbling up birdie seeds from the ground under the birdie feeder. Poor Debbie Dove could hardly get any!

So I zoomed out and chased him up the pear tree. That wasn't very smart of him, because there's no where else to go from up there. I would have barked all day at him, but ghostwriter thought it would annoy the neighbors. So grudgingly, I had to go back inside the house. 

But that's OK. Debbie Dove came by to thank me for chasing that rascal squirrel away so she would have more seeds to eat.

Thank you very much, Chester!

My pleasure, Ma'am.

Monday evening, a big thunderstorm rolled in with lots of wind and torrential rain. There was even a tornado watch for a little while. But the storm passed. You wouldn't believe the sunset we had! 

Do you see how lumpy those clouds look? Those are called mammatus clouds, and they're often associated with storms. Here's an article in case you want to know more about them:


For a few minutes, the sunset became all gold, and then fiery orange.

But that wasn't the end of our crazy weather! This morning we had hail coming down!

I couldn't go out in that, but I did get to bark at alias Twinkletoes the squirrel from my drive-through barking window. Do you see him halfway up the clothes line pole? What's with those dumb squirrels out in the rain and hail?

At dinner time, when the wind was gusting to 45 miles per hour, Dad went out to cook some nice steak on the grill. I got a bite of that yummy steak, plus some rice mixed with the steak juice from the serving platter.

Ooooo, tenderloin medium rare, basmati rice, and steamed vegetables.

Oh, and I almost forgot! The street cleaner truck went by today too! Wow!

And now you know the news.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz …

  6. We can see why you are so exhausted after all that activity at your house. Rest up because we know there will be more squirrels to chase the next day.

  7. YOu had a lot to report today, Chester. We are glad you chased that squirrel up the tree and wish you could have stayed out longer. Those clouds are amazing and scary all at the same time.

    And wow, Mr. Ryan really is getting to be a big boy.

  8. Wow! You have been soooo busy! I love Debbie Dove. She is very pretty. As you know, we think squirrels are crazy and need to be chased. Stay safe in the stormy weather. ♥

  9. Your person looks like a lot of fun. Debbie Dove is lucky to have such a great protector!

  10. I love small children. They are so much fun and they smell good.

  11. Spectacular cloud formations and even more so with the last of the sunbeams dancing all over them. Scary clouds, too...sometimes we see those here, too.
    One time they looked green. OMD:(
    That was a bad storm.

    You did not have time to get bored that is for sure!

    Today we saw an indigo bunting again, and also a rose breasted grosbeak. Petcretary thinks that birds are doing the springtime migration/hunting for good summer nesting sites.

  12. Busy busy busy! Miss Oswin doesn't care much for small two-leggers. They are too busy and loud she says. She doesn't mind big two-leggers though. Especially if they pet her. She looooooves that.

    I love the second to last sunset photo. Absolutely stunning. Those clouds...
