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

It's been a  crazy week with lots of changes going on! I have several stories for today's report, but I'm going to start with the weather. There's been a big wind roaring through our area lately. The clouds have been practically racing by! One minute it's all sunny and bright.

And the next minute storm clouds are rolling in.

Hey, get lost storm clouds! Can't you see we're doing a news cast here?

The high winds blew most of the leaves off the silver maple tree. So ghostwriter had to rake them up. (She also put the Halloween pumpkins in the compost pile. Do you see them there?)

While she was working on that, I snooped around the yard. Check out this big stick pile. Dad was planning to put all of this mess through the screaming monster stick grinder machine thing and turn them into mulch, but didn't have enough time before he got his knee surgery. So now Sparrows Incorporated has an all new remodeled and rebuilt:

Hotel and Winter Resort in the Sticks!

  It's the perfect venue for sparrow conventions, chirp concerts, and birdie kick-boxing events!

Hello in there! (I can smell birdie poop already.)

In other news, the National Guard must be practicing because their helicopters have been out day and night. This one's a big Chinook chopper with two rotors. 

Flocks of geese have been zooming around as well. Gee, I hope they don't smash into each other!

We have to report that we no longer have any flowers left. But the colorful Norway maples, and the Japanese maples are now loosing their leaves. We think they're just as pretty as flowers.


This is a fast breaking story. I'm live in my back yard and it's snowing out! Yes indeed, big wet snowflakes are falling along with even more leaves. Amazing!

Now ghostwriter is going to have to get out the snow shovel AND the rake!

For my final report, it's getting darker earlier every day. There's only one thing to do about that: 



  1. We are having snow now too. Looks like you might have more...

    We had all that wind too, 50 MPH, hard to walk well in that. But other than the garbage bins all over the road, etc, we didn't suffer much damage.

    The helicopters are busy here, too. They sure do make a big racket!

    Have a nice nap:)

  2. We were so happy to see the snow today! Hopefully we will get some more this weekend.

  3. We agree that the beautiful autumn leaves are as pretty as any flower! Lucky you to get snow, Chester, but now ghostwriter REALLY has her work cut out for her!

  4. Chester what a mixed bag of weather you have experienced. Good job on perimeter patrol. Be sure the birds know it is your turf! I love red leaves
    Hugs Cecilia

  5. We had our first snow yesterday morning. It was pretty wet so even Abby Lab didn't want to roll in it.

  6. Lots going on in that yard of yours, C. - from the sky to the stick pile. Your sleeping position is THE BEST!

    Love and licks,

  7. You look happy to have the snow. Thank you for the fascinating back yard report. You don't miss a detail.

  8. We got some snow and are far happier than our peeps about it.

  9. I don't know anything about that snow stuff, but you sure have a lot going on in your dogdom. Looks like you have evfurrything well under control!
