Good evening. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your dashing doggie reporter Special Agent
Chester L. W. Spaniel.
I didn't dress up as anything for Halloween. But that doesn't mean I did absolutely nothing. As a matter of fact, I had lots of dire responsibilities that required me to make use of my ability to instantly morph into a totally different doggie!
I was on duty the whole evening protecting our house from all kinds of ghosts and goblins that were running around the neighborhood and ringing our doorbell and shouting "trick-or-treat!" For this, I used my big boy bark technique that makes alien invaders think I'm really a crazy old junk yard watch doggie.
My other job this evening was to assume my secret alias: Mr. Underfoot. You see Dad came home from the hospital this afternoon after getting a new knee. Yes, just like my ghostwriter did a year ago, Dad got a total knee replacement yesterday. Of course I simply HAD to stick close to him wherever he went. It's my duty as a cocker spaniel to always be as close to my humans as possible, especially if my human is groaning and moaning and using a clunky walker thing to get around!
Don't worry. He'll be all right. Ghostwriter changed into her own secret identity: Battle Axe Nurse. (She calls herself that because she's been a nurse since 1981.) Anyway, she'll get him shaped up in no time!
In the meantime, some of my other family members had fun changing into their secret identities.
|Fire fighter Ryan|
|Busy bee Lily|
|Handsome devil Jason|
|Scary raven Joanna|
We had some excellent looking pumpkins out by the front steps.
We had a scary ghosty boo and a tombstone! Oh, and Mr. Bones Daily had to work this evening by changing into his role as a spooky Halloween skeleton.
As you can see, it looks like he was sitting down on the job for the entire evening! He's always been kind of a lazy bones! The rest of the year, he just hangs around and keeps an eye on Dad's workshop.
Well, it's getting late now and everything has quieted down. Time for me to assume my third and final secret identity:
