Greetings friends and fans! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your dignified doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.
Sorry it's been a while since I've posted, but we've had a busy time lately. First of all, you may notice that I am now sporting a shorter and less shaggy haircut. Indeed, I went to visit my friend and groomer, Miss Jacquie who works out of the vet's office. I also got a bit of bad news. After my recent vet visit, I found out I had contracted Lyme disease! My ghostwriter was so shocked! As many may know, Lyme disease is spread by deer ticks. And there are definitely no deer running around in my yard! I haven't gone anywhere else that might have deer either. But the vet said it could have come from a smaller furry mammal.
I suspect it was the Secretive Bunny Militia! After all the snow melted, we found lots of piles of bunny poop in the grass. You may remember that a few weeks ago there were clumps of bunny fur on the ground under the pear tree too.
Or maybe it was from this guy! Grrrrrrr!
I'm taking medication for it, and have gotten my first immunization against Lyme disease. My message to my readers is to be aware of this disease and have your doggie tested for it.
|I'm doing OK now!|
But now I have some very sad news.
My NC associate and dear friend, Angus B. Terrier, has crossed the bridge. Long time readers will remember that Angus was originally from England. When his humans moved to NC, they left Angus with some very good friends. But then, they missed him so much, they had him get on a jet plane and travel all the way across the Atlantic Ocean! Wow!
Angus enjoyed following his humans everywhere, including the local pub, and was a world class squirrel chaser. We're going to miss him a lot!
I shall now bring you outside, live and on location, to my back yard to do some exploring.
We FINALLY have a few flowers!
