Greetings loyal readers. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your windblown doggie commentator
Chester L. W. Spaniel.
If I look kind of squinty today it's because in this photo shoot, there was a gale force wind blowing in my face! I'm rather tired today too because all night long thunderstorms kept rolling through our area. I'm not afraid of thunder. In fact, I usually bark at it during the day. Night time barking, however, is reserved for an all-out hostile alien home invasion.
A long, low rumble of thunder at 2AM doesn't deserve that kind of alarm. But it does involve tip-tap-tip-tappping upstairs and down the hall to ghostwriter and Dad's room, and a cold nose to an arm or leg to remind them that I'm here in case the storm develops into a typhoon or something.
It's been raining like crazy too. My back yard is full of puddles and wet leaves. But we did have some breaks in the eternal grayness typical of WNY in November, and ghostwriter got a few nice photos of the beautiful Fall leaves.
We've also had some spectacular sunsets.
And the full moon made a brief appearance. (Hi Princess.)
Dad's been filling up the birdie feeder lately. We've seen lots of chickadees, blue jays, and juncos (all the winter birdies) along with the usual sparrows and finches. But you probably know what else those yummy seeds attract. That's right: the Evil Squirrel Cartel!
Friday there were not one, not two, but four screwy squirrels in my yard all at the same time! You better believe I gave them a run for their money!
Oh, and I guess I should do a quick food report. First up, probably the last grilled steak of the season.
My humans have started switching over to their winter menu. Here's ghostwriter's famous stir fry with Udon noodles.
Here we have a breaded pork chop, and mashed potatoes, with peas and carrots.
And I'm glad to say ghostwriter's left knee is getting better every day. She can walk without the crutches most of the time now. She even went out and raked some leaves yesterday! She says some of the muscles in that leg are still kind of stiff and wonky (whatever that means.)
That's all I have to report. I was looking forward to a quiet night, but there are storms moving through our area yet again. It's messing up Dad's satellite connection!
Well, I'm going to sleep anyway.
