“Here’s something from Wales,” Bernie says. I know whales from Animal Planet and all I can say is wow. But Bernie loses me right away. “A four-year old cocker spaniel named Nell went missing on her walk and her owner searched for her for two days with no luck. Then they decided to look in old abandoned mine shafts – kind of like what we have out here – and they found Nell at the bottom of an eighty foot deep shaft. They lowered a guy down and he brought Nell up, completely unhurt.”

So what’s the takeaway? A spaniel got swallowed by a whale? That reminds me of some other story I once heard Bernie tell. I’ll try to remember what it was, maybe after breakfast.

    So… either the cocker had wings… or maybe there was a perp who put the dog down there?

    The cocker must be part cat to fall down a 80 foot mine shaft and not be injured. Where Bernie gets these stories I don't know–a special website for animal news?

    Whales are pretty awesome but don't they just eat plankton and fish–no dogs?

    Baline (?) whales eat plankton. Toothed whales, like orcas, eat bigger stuff, like seals.

    Uh– sorry– that's "Baleen."

    Wow, I always thought it was baleine. I guess b/c the sea salt container I buy has that word on it and a graphic of a whale. Words sure are confusing. Maybe that is French, and I sure do NOT know French.

    Well, Chet. Stay away from the whales with teeth for sure. Wales is a great place, I'm sure.
