Hot Summer Day

Greetings! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your earnest doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

Today was a classic hot summer day! 90º and muggy.

The sky was filled with big, puffy, white clouds!

And the garden is full of flowers.

Hey, what's this? Snow in July?

Nope. It's just the petals falling off the hawthorn tree blossoms.

The bright sun is making me squint!

I think I'd better go inside where it's nice and cool.

Ah, that's better!

My ghostwriter has to work tomorrow. So we're wishing everyone a happy 4th of July today!

Here's a reminder for pets on this holiday from our friends at zoolatry.


  1. You are the prettiest thing on even the most lovely summer day

  2. Your pictures are all so beautiful, Chester! Stay cool inside and enjoy your holiday. Bummer about ghostwriter having to work but we know that she'll make the best of it.

  3. Happy Independence Day Chester and family! It sure has been hot and sticky around here.

    To answer your question about the upside down suet feeder it does prevent some birds from using it but I'm not sure about the grackles. We don't have any of them around our yard. It does keep the crows from using it.

  4. Happy 4th of July.

    ♥ Astro and Mitzie

  5. Hope you have a pawesome Fourth Chester!!
    Rosy, Jakey & Arty

  6. Flowers are pretty but air conditioning is better. Happy 4th to you.

  7. Chester that red rose is an Award winner wow!!! Remember please, please don't eat the daisies!!
    Happy 4th to you and your family. I hope there won't be any bothersome fireworks for you tonight
    Hugs Cecilia

  8. Happy 4th, C. You are a smart boy to stay inside where it's cool.

    Love and licks,

  9. Its been muggy and way too hot around these parts, too. We sure are glad the AC got fixed just in time.phew!

    Your blooms are so pretty!

    We do a lot of 'lollygagging' around o these hot days too. Even the peeps decided the AC and a TV was a better option to see the fireworks, BOL! They did go to the air show for a wee bit...and saw the F22! Earplugs, please...
