Greetings friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your undaunted doggie reporter
Chester L. W. Spaniel.
I've been watching the news about that horrible, very bad, no good virus thing that's terrorizing the humans right now. There is very little we doggies can do about it. But we can keep our peeps from getting too down in the dumps. So I decided to tell everyone my secret to all the funny and serious expressions I make for The Daily Bone.
And the secret is …
… yummy doggie treats! Yes indeed! My ghostwriter and I have a routine for our photo sessions. She shows me the camera phone, and I know she has doggie treats in her pocket. In response to that I get ready to pose. Upon receiving a treat, several pictures will be taken while I'm chewing it.
Whoops! I dropped that one.
Hey, where did it go?
OK, got it. Crunch, crunch, crunch …
Now I'm waiting for the next one. According to my esteemed and late associate Joseph (Joey dog*) Spaniel, author of the Yum Yum Coalition Guide to Doggie Employment, the standard pay for a photo session is precisely two yum yum doggie treats.
There is another treat coming, right?
OK. Got it. Yum!
Well, I hope this took your mind off the rotten news for a little while.
