Os Canis

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

Dad went to the hardware store and brought home a brand new super noisy shop vac cleaner monster horrible thing. Did I say it was real noisy? He also brought home a new doggie! 

Heheheheh. You're joking, right Dad? Or did that rotten cantankerous loud scary annoying new shop vac machine thing suck all the skin off of that poor doggie?? 

Fortunately, Dad said this was just a Halloween fake skeleton doggie made out of plastic. Later, my ghostwriter took the new doggie out to the back yard. 

I thought, what the heck? Surely that fake doggie doesn't need to go out to the back yard …

But guess who else was out there? None other than Mr. Bones Daily, the skeleton guy that spends most of the year supposedly guarding Dad's workshop in the garage! He was waving his bony hand at me.

 "Welcome to spooky season, Chester!" he said. "This is my new skeleton doggie friend named Os Canis, or Ossy for short. He's going to help me with making Halloween even scarier than ever!"

You have GOT to be kidding me! 


  1. Poor Ossy. He needs his fur back and lots of foodables to put some meat back on those bones.

  2. You've got to be kidding ME, too! Yikes. That is too scary to be OK. What's next? A skeleton kitty?? Hmmm... Actually, that wouldn't be bad at all!

    Love and licks,

  3. We can't believe your dad brought home a new dog to your house, Chester. That is just outrageous! We know you won't be scared by him though.

  4. Chester you are handsome, a great reporter, a fun guy and most of all most extremely B R A V E.
    Oh those bones those creep bones.
    Hugs cecilia

  5. I like your new friend. That is what happens when you shake too much from hearing the vacuum.

  6. Pawsonally, I don't unnerstand "fake." A bone is a bone is a bone, and that doggy tells me two things: you better guard your supper dish, and you better stay FAR away from that new noisy sucky monster!

  7. Ossy is a very interesting dog, Chester. We think you might want to tell Mom and Dad you would like one with a wee bit more fat and fur on it:) Happy Halloween.

  8. Hello Friends! I LOVED this post, it's given me a much needed grin, what fun, and Ossy is a perfect new addition. that I'll bet he won't take your spot on the sofa.... Will he? Now skeleton guy on the other hand....

    Take care, and have a good week!

  9. Aww, I think it's grreat that Mr. Bones has a canine companion too. Ossy looks a lot like my new sister Morticia.

  10. Funny, Dad had never seen Matilda's new sister Morticia when he brought Ossy home! And Cupcake, I bet there might be some kitty cat versions of these scary bone doggies. It would sure be spooky! Yesterday grand daughter Lily saw Ossy for the first time and thought he was a dinosaur! LOL BOL!

  11. OMD!! That is the BEST! At least you don't have to worry about the new dog eating your food.

  12. BOL!!! Love the name you gave your new 'furend'! Ossy!
    did he come with all his tags and a leash and collar for Mr Bones to take him for a stroll round the block?
