Look Up, Look Down

 Greetings friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your investigative doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

We have a cold, sunny, and very windy day today! But my ghostwriter finally has a day off, and I told her we really need to take a little time to look up …

… and to look down, and see what amazing things we can find. 

Most of our snow is melted except for a few patches in the shady parts of the yard.

Hey, what's this?

Looks like bunny fur

Well, we did find lots of piles of bunny poop in our yard since the snow melted.

Here's some more!

Ghostwriter asked me if I knew anything about the bunny fur under the pear tree. 

Who, me?

She thought about what might have caught a bunny in my yard. Mr. Cool Beans Cooper, our friendly neighborhood Cooper's hawk isn't big enough to catch a full sized bunny. Was it an owl? But owls usually eat their prey whole. Maybe a cat did it. We looked carefully all around the yard, and couldn't find any more evidence. 

Case closed, right?

She asked Dad about it. He said it was a little suspicious that last night I wanted to keep going out every ten minutes for a while. So then she asked me, "Chester did you catch a bunny last night? I bet you did and it got away except for those clumps of fur."

I'll never tell!

Oh, and today is our Lily's third birthday! Hooray!


  1. Thanks for the interesting nature tour Chester. The birch trees look beautiful against the blue sky, but of course the bunny fur mystery was the most exciting part.
    Toodle pip!

    We love seeing signs of spring.

    Great post Chester! We would never tell if we just about caught a bunny either.
    Have a marvellously Happy Week!

  4. Happy 3rd Birthday Lily!! We hope you have an excellent day. Chester, thank you for the report. We have high winds today also. We hope the warmer weather will be here soon. Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos. Have a fun day.

  5. Well, in order to know fur sure, GW would need to run a DNA test on the fur to find out if there is any of your saliva on that fur Chester...but somehow it will forever be a mystery sort of.
    Most of our snow is melting too, except for the big piles.

    Happy Birthday to your Lily!!

  6. Hi friend, Ojo here! Bunny poop!?!? Bunny fur!?!? I am sure it was YOU who was the great hunter, it must have been!!!

  7. You found lots of interesting things in your yard, Chester. We still have quite a bit of snow and can't believe you have lily of the valley popping out of the ground already.

  8. I think your yard is being used as a bunny barber shop

  9. HAPPY BURTHDAY SWEET LILY!!!! I hopes you got lots of delish foodables!

  11. Thanks for commenting on our blog. It's cold, sunny and windy here too but we still have a ton of snow. It's supposed to warm up in a few days so hopefully it will begin to melt soon.

  12. Happy birthday Lily! Sorry that I missed many celebrations at your end last month! It's always nice to see everyone's smile. Yay!
