A Few Flowers

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

After a few days of warmer weather, we finally have a few flowers to show you today. Hopefully there will be more of them by next week.

I hesitate to get too excited about that, since the local weatherman says it might snow yet again this coming Sunday. My ghostwriter says two things about this: on one hand, it's good that it doesn't warm up too soon in the season. Otherwise the fruit trees might bloom too early and then get a frost. That could ruin the entire crop!

But on the other hand, we're sooooo tired of cold weather!

She also says the weather is something everybody talks about, but nobody does anything about.

Therefore I will now change the subject.

I haven't done a food report in ages. My esteemed and late associate Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel*, Doggie Chief Inspector, comestibles division, and founder of the Yum Yum Coalition, would be very disappointed. I hope he doesn't think I've been derelict in my food watching duties. I still closely watch my humans eat their meals, and always get to sample the food.

Bratwurst, parsley potatoes, and asparagus. Yum!

Roast beef with gravy, mashed potatoes, and green beans.

Here is a concoction my ghostwriter invented. She took some left-over roast beef, left-over green beans, and left-over mashed potatoes, piled it all in a dish, poured left-over gravy over it, and topped it with frozen biscuits. This whole mess went into the oven for about 30 minutes or so. It turned out great!

Spaghetti, sausage, and steamed asparagus.

Rotisserie chicken, green beans, fresh bread and butter.

My favorite miniature humans have hit a few milestones lately.
Little Lily is learning to smile.

Ryan has lost his first baby tooth!


Here are a few pictures of my kitty cat cousins:






Can I go out and howl at the moon now?

There's a little lady across the Pond who is probably wondering why I haven't called her on the moon phone in such a long time. I swear, I couldn't find the moon because of all the clouds lately!

*We thought it might be nice to go back a couple years and take a look at a really good post by the late, great Joey dog. Here's the link: saturday-with-joey-dog

  1. Our weather changes by the day too. BUT no snow here:) Just rain and mud followed by sunshine. We have had a few good days this week despite yesterday's wetness. The spring flowers are so pretty. Little Lily has a sweet smile, and we hope the tooth Fairy was good to Ryan.
