Greetings friends and fans! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your diligent (and expert scent tracker) doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.
Now that it's September, you may have noticed the days are getting a little bit shorter. Here in WNY it's dark by 8pm. You never know what kind of day to expect. Yesterday it was warm and sunny. But today, it's cool and it rained all morning.
There have been big flocks of sparrows at our birdie feeders all day long! (If you enlarge this photo below, you'll be able to see the hummingbird that's been visiting lately too.)
We left the back door to the garage open, and the next time we went out, there was a whole flock of those sparrows INSIDE the garage! They all flew back out pretty quickly. But one little birdie decided to fly into the house! Wow! That little birdie flew all around the place and ended up hitting the wall and falling down behind the big shelf the TV sits on. Dad managed to chase her out of there, and ghostwriter caught her and put her outside. (Sorry we didn't get any pictures of the little birdie. Ghostwriter didn't want to stress her out any more.)
So then I, being an excellent cocker spaniel hunting doggie, picked up the scent and decided to track everywhere that little birdie went: all over the garage, and then all over the house. Unfortunately, I tried to squeeze myself behind the TV cabinet, much to Dad's objection. Well that's exactly where the little birdie had gotten herself stuck! My nose doesn't lie!
While Dad was pulling me out of there he discovered that there was a TON of dust back there. So GW decided they might as well clean things good. She got the big, noisy, screaming dragon, scary, horrible, loud shop-vac noisy monster machine thing to suck up all the dust. Yipes!
They ended up vacuuming the entire first floor of the house, plus the steps and rugs. Did I say it was super extremely noisy? GW said that knocked about ten things off her "to-do list."
All that work because of one little birdie!
