Another Stink Bug!

This is a TDB fast breaking news story. I'm your heroic doggie reporter and local insect-wrestling legend Chester L. W. Spaniel. I am live and on location in the corner by the front door where another devious stink bug has invaded our domicile! That's the second one this month!

I don't know where this one came from. Maybe the coat closet. But no matter! 

I will once again save the day by vanquishing the foul beastie! I will begin by barking at it.

Bark bark bark bark bark bark bark woof bark bark!

Next I will attack with my power paw! 


Followed by the jaws of death!


Ptooie! Blah blah blah! Yuck! 

Man, I hate these nasty, smelly bugs! 

I'm happy to announce that I disabled the odorous arthropod, so that ghostwriter could catch it and throw it outside. Hopefully Dad finished it off with the snow blower he was using to clear the driveway. Just in the nick of time, the Town of Henrietta snow plow went by too!

Hooray! That old stink bug must be rolling in a snow bank by now! 

No need to thank me! But a chewy yum yum doggie treat will certainly help! 

(Yes, I know I should just leave those kinds of bugs alone. But I consider it my dog-given responsibility to rid our home of these horrid, stinky invaders by means of epic battle. Just so you know, these winter stink bugs aren't as powerfully pungent as they are in summer.)

Oh, and one more thing. I almost caught an evil squirrel today too!



  1. Perhaps you should open your own extermination company

  2. Well done on bug patrol and on squirrel patrol. We could use your help over here, if you ever find your dogself in Oregon City!

  3. Can't believe you tried to eat another stink bug Chester!

  5. We were watching TV Friday night and we heard a loud buzz above our heads, Chester. It was a stink bug coming in for a landing. I ran from the room and mom took care of him lickitysplit! We can't STAND stinkbugs! YUK!

  6. You almost got a squirrel? Well done you! I think I will just have another nap while Mara and Gera prepare some of the dishes for Opa and Oma (that's Mara's Papa and Mama). *Yawn*

  7. Well, you sure did a great job taking care of that stink bug!!! We hope that is the last one of the season:)

    We got SNOW!!! Only about an inch, but it sure has been a fun morning.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    Woos - Lightning, MIsty, and Timber, and Mom too

  8. Catching the squirrel would be a great Christmas gift. We are glad you saved the house from the bug.

  9. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! Good job! Stink bugs today, evil squirrels tomorrow! Enjoy your snow! And happy Christmas, friend!

  10. What a busy guy you have been Chester, helping your pawrents with pest extermintation...We bet Santa Paws has you on the nice list for sure!!

  11. We've been finding those offensive bugs in our house too. Our mom likes to drown them by flushing them down the toilet.

  12. We need you here, Chester, those bugs are looking for heated rooms to let but we don't think petcretary wants them as tenants not only are they freeloaders, as you say...they stink!
