Warning Bark

Bongo in the darkFinally, my person figured it out.

I’ve been trying to warn her the last few nights and all she does is tell me to come back in the house.

She doesn’t even know what my bark is for.

It’s not like I bark up a storm.

Just one warning bark when they walk by.

And then my person tells me to come in.

.

***

You see, we’ve been having some visitors the last few nights.

And when I’m hanging outside in the evenings I hear them walking by on the other side of my fence.

But my person had no idea what my warnings were – until she went out to her car one night and found them there.

Right in my front yard.

And the next day she found something else.

They’d made their own path right on the side of our house.

This is my yard.

I’m the only one allowed to make trails in it.

I’d better send my person on inspection treks around the house more often.

***

Finally, my person heeded my warning.

She checked the front yard and found them out there again.

Javelinas in the yard

Hey person, you managed to get the light on me in the dark.

What was your problem with those javelinas?

Rumbly Mischief

Thunder Clouds over SedonaSomebody is a mischief maker and I’m not quite sure who.

But I think it’s my person.

You see, when I woke up this morning the sky was full of clouds and it was rumbling thunder.

And it kept thundering until my person finally left the house.

And forced me to stay in dog jail, mind you, while that thunder was rumbling on.

.

.

But this is October and we’re not supposed to get thunder in October.

Bongo on the trail with red rocks and blue sky in the background

This is what an October day where I live is supposed to look like.

And most of the time October days do look like this.

And you know what?

After my person left, the sky cleared up.

When she came back home the sky was all blue.

And then she left again.

And this time when she came home the sky had changed once more.

Cloudy Sky and Red Rocks

Now it looked like this.

And the thunder had come back.

I’m sure my person had something to do with it.

But she’s paying, because there’s no way I’m taking her for a walk today.

Downed Nest

Bird nest on the groundSome bird dropped her nest right in my yard and flew the coop.

Or maybe the baby birds were ready to go and they tossed out their nest when they left.

So which is it?

I’ve got to go find them and ask them.

.

.

.

But I’ve got a dilemma.

Bongo looking away and a nest on the ground

Did they fly that way?

Bongo looking the opposite direction

Or did they fly over there?

Climbing School

Bongo looking at a vehicle with a paw print and a climbing school signI was heading out to my trails when something caught my attention in the parking lot.

A vehicle with a paw print and a climbing school sign.

Red vehicle with paw and climbing school sign

The only obvious conclusion is that they are offering a climbing school for dogs.

Or maybe a climbing school with dogs as the instructors.

That would make sense.

Us four leggers are much better at climbing than two leggers.

And we could teach them a thing or two.

I bet they’re up there on my trails somewhere.

Probably heading for those tall rocks.

And I’m going after them.

Bongo heading up the trail

Come on, person. Don’t slow me down.

I’ve got to go sign up to teach climbing.

Reasons to Go Out

I go out in the yard for a number of reasons.

Sometimes it’s to do my business.

But that’s not always the case.

Sometimes it’s nice outside – or there are good smells out there – and I just want to hang out in the yard for awhile.

Other times my people tell me to go outside.

And when I come back in when I’m told they give me a treat.

I like that treat thing.

So sometimes I ask to go out…

…so I can come back in again and get a treat.

Bongo waiting at the door to come in

Hey people, I’m ready to come in now.

Bongo with a sad look

Are you gonna give me a treat?

What do you mean, no?

Bongo sitting and waiting for a treat

How about now?

I’m in my best treat pose.

Come on. I came back in the house, didn’t I?

That’s got to be good for something.

The Friendliest Dog

When I’m on my trails my person won’t let me get near any dogs that aren’t already my friends.

I don’t know how I’m supposed to make new friends if I can’t get near them.

But this cute little number…

Bongo sniffing noses with another dog

…ran right up to me.

My person had no chance to put a damper on things.

And now I have a new girlfriend.

See, I get along fine with other dogs.

But could you just do something about my arch enemy – you know, that German Shepherd who lives around the corner from us?

Person, if you don’t stop talking to her person I’m going to give that dog what for again.

Only dogs I like are allowed on my trails.

Send the others away and I’ll get along with every dog I meet.

And I’ll be the friendliest dog around.

One Down – One More Up

Bongo's face in front of the computerI finally got my computer unlocked.

You see, yesterday Gizmo locked up my computer and I wasn’t able to post on my blog.

I hope nobody was worried about me.

Anyway, I’m back now.

And as soon as I finish here I’m going after Gizmo.

.

.

Wait! What?

Oh no. There’s something I’ve gotta do first.

I just can’t win.

I finally unravel Gizmo’s mischievous deed and now I just learned that my person has been up to mischief.

She went to a lake today.

Without me.

And what did she do?

gaggle of geese

She hung out with a gaggle of geese.

She could have at least gone swimming.
