Look Up, Look Down

 Hello everybody! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your friendly doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

We've had a lot of big changes in the weather lately. Earlier this week there was a huge storm that blew down trees and branches, and knocked out power in some places.

Another night we watched as distant lightning lit up the clouds with purple dragons.

And a cute little raccoon waving hello?

So anyway, it's time to do some looking around in my backyard!

Hey look at these little plants growing between the house and the pavers. 

Oh and there's a baby evergreen tree growing in a random flower pot!

But then we heard a helicopter flying over, and took a quick snap shot. Please click on the picture below, and enlarge it to see the military Chinook helicopter on the upper left, and the insect flying by on the lower right corner of this photo. We were super surprised to catch a picture like this!

Wow! The moon put on a show for the last few nights too.

In other news, my kitty cat cousins, Tibie (aka Tiberius) and Hanni (aka Hannibal) have a red tailed hawk family nesting near their home in the city. 

You may think that's amazing, but not if you're the neighbor's kitty cat who happened to be in the hawk's line of sight! 


We're going to look at some more flowers.

We've got some more clouds moving in now, and it's supposed to rain.

Good night.


  1. Thank you for sharing your pretty flowers, your outstanding moon, and even you helicopter.

  2. Your purple sky looks very eerie and your flowers are just beautiful, Chester!

  3. We hope the kitty does OK with the hungry new neighbor staring at him. We hope he's big enough to hold his own.

    Love and licks,

  4. We think your Mom is clicking-the-camera and what a great job she does (of course YOU are snoopervising). The photo with whirlybird on one side and a whirlybzzz on the other is really COOL!
    Sweet dreams after all the hard work ...

  5. Well done and bravo to your resident photographer on the helicopter and insect photo. WOW
    Those are some angry looking clouds.
    Chester you deserve a t-bone for this report
    Hugs Cecilia

  6. You found lots of cool things around your house, Chester. We especially like the purple clouds.

  7. Wow Chester, we don't know which pictures we love more...Such beautiful skies...and the flowers are gorgeous. That hawk is a bit scary though...

    Happy Weekend!
