No Flowers Outside Today

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

Today it was snowing on and off all day. It came down in big, fat flakes. But the wind blew it all sideways so it didn't amount to much.

But there's been plenty of birdie drama! Check out this guy! He was hanging around all day eating suet and seeds at the window box birdie feeder. 


I decided to interview him. He said his name is Ziggy Stardust and he's a starling. 

And I'm a star!

Really? What are you starring in? 

I am the star of this box!

Then he jumped into the window box feeder and took a nap. I hope he doesn't think the birdie feeder box is his private domain. 

Well, Debbie Dove came along and kicked him right out of there!

Wake up dummy! This feeder is for all of us!

That was a short career!

Ghostwriter said that starling didn't look anything like David Bowie anyway. (Whoever that is!) Then she said, if you know who that is then you're as old as she is! 


Yes, it was a very weird day too!

In other news, the Stodgy Robin Society has reverted to combat mode. There was about a dozen of them hanging around the hawthorn tree all day, sizing each other up and chasing each other around. Ghostwriter said they're all the male robins competing for territory. So I went over to see if I could settle their dispute. They all flew away. And then it started snowing again. 


Meanwhile, at my kitty cat cousins' house: 

Egads brother! It's a stinkbug of doom!

Oh, I almost forgot. It's Flower Friday. I looked everywhere but I couldn't find any flowers! 
Except this one:



  1. You are very brave to be interviewing birds in the snow. You deserve a pulitzer. Lily sure does make flowers look pretty

  2. We love how you have such great names for all your feathered visitors:) And little Lily is just precious!!!

    Lily is the most beautiful and fresh flower I've seen in a very long time.

  9. Lily is such a cute flower!!

    Sounds like you are having a fun time keeping the birdies in line!

  10. You have tons of birds in your yard Chester! We don't have anywhere near that many .... yet! Of course, it probably helps that you bribe them by providing food! :)

  11. The best flower ever!!

    We haven't any snow right now, but it is still very cold. I can't wait for summer!

  12. Awww, Lily made the best flower and so sweetly pretty!

    We have starlings too, and they decide to come in flocks and decimate the suet cakes in short order. Then there is nothing left for hungry chickadees and woodpeckers. Grrr.
