Thunder Mischief

Bongo leaving his dog jailI’m not sure who was up to the most mischief this weekend.

My people or the thunder.

On Saturday my person waited until almost the end of the day to let me take her for a walk.

She had some excuse about it being too hot.

So by the time she finally said we could go, we couldn’t.

Because the thunder had shown up.

There’s no way I’m going out there when there’s thunder.

I mean, what if it comes and grabs me and takes me back into the sky with it.

And then drops me.

Or what if it chases me all the way up a mountain.

No, I don’t trust that thunder at all.

But that wasn’t all the mischief.

On Sunday my people locked me in dog jail.

And left me.

And it rained real hard.

It made so much noise on the roof that my dog bed got wet too.

We must have a leaky roof.

Person, if you type that I’m calling you on more mischief.

I can’t help it if I get things wet when I’m scared.

Loud rain is scary.

Then my people came back home and the thunder must have followed them, because it thundered the whole rest of the day.

I hope my trails are still around.

I haven’t been able to check on them for two days now.

But here’s the worst part.

My people left me in dog jail again.

And this time it thundered and rained.

I think the only one I can still trust around here is my sneaky squeaky snake.

Do Angels Always Rescue?

Facing the SanhedrinWhat do you mean, the angels don’t always rescue people?

An angel got Peter and John out of jail didn’t he?

I’m still waiting for an angel to get me out of dog jail though.

And give me treats.

So sometimes the angel doesn’t come?

How come?

Okay, I’ll listen to the story.

***

Now Stephen, a man full of God’s grace and power, did great wonders and miraculous signs among the people.

***

Maybe Stephen could get me out of dog jail.

I am listening.

***

Opposition arose, however, from members of the Synagogue of the Freedmen (as it was called) – Jews of Cyrene and Alexandria as well as provinces of Cilicia and Asia. These men began to argue with Stephen, but they could not stand up against his wisdom or the Spirit by whom he spoke.

***

Those men ought to listen to Stephen.

I’m listening.

***

Then they secretly persuaded some men to say, “We have heard Stephen speak words of blasphemy against Moses and against God.”

***

Those men are up to no good.

What do you mean, kind of like me?

***

So they stirred up the people and the elders and the teachers of the law. They seized Stephen and brought him before the Sanhedrin. They produced false witnesses, who testified, “This fellow never stops speaking against this holy place and against the law. For we have heard him say that Jesus of Nazareth will destroy this place and change the customs Moses handed down to us.”

***

Those people are afraid of Jesus, aren’t they?

I don’t know why.

If they were friends with Jesus he would give them fish.

***

All who were sitting in the Sanhedrin looked intensely at Stephen, and they saw that his face was like the face of an angel.

***

If Stephen has a face like an angel those angels will come rescue him for sure.

What do you mean, I have to wait until the next story to find out what happens to him?

I think I’m going to hang out in my dog jail.

There’s got to be an angel coming soon to rescue me from there.

Creative Message

Pee pattern in the streetCheck this out.

As I headed to my trails today I decided to do something different.

I left my message on the street so everybody could read it.

Even those people who can’t smell very well can see it.

So they can read my message too.

Well, I guess they have to know the alphabet I used.

It’s pretty clever, don’t you think?

I’m not sure what I should call it.

Dogan?

Or maybe Dogabic?

I guess I’d better figure out soon what to name it.

Otherwise people won’t know what language to study so they can read my message.

I’ll have to think about it while I go on my walk.

***

Now that I’m almost done with my walk I can’t wait to see if anyone replied to my message.

Even if I haven’t named it yet there are probably some people who can read it.

And I know all my dog friends can.

Hey wait!

What happened?

Where did it go?

Somebody stole my message!

Summer Do

Bongo and LucyI met a strange dog on my trails today.

She was very friendly and wanted to play.

Most dogs I know just want to check me out.

It’s hard to find one who wants to play with me before even getting a friendly sniff.

While I appreciated the play, I still had to check her out.

***

Hey, wait a minute.

This isn’t a strange dog.

I know this dog.

This is my girlfriend Lucy!

With a haircut!

It’s a good thing a girl’s smell doesn’t change when she changes her hairdo.

Too Dark

Bongo's FaceA few days ago I figured out the master plan.

And it worked – sort of.

You see, I decided to wait to take my person for walks until the sun is almost down and everything is in shadow.

That way there’s nothing for my person to take pictures of.

It’s too dark.

My person has been going along with the late walks because it’s not so hot outside.

But she still tries to take pictures.

Usually she gives up pretty quickly because it’s too dark for anything to turn out.

So today I did my best to stall my person until it got dark enough.

Notice, you don’t see a picture of me balking.

It was too dark.

And you don’t see any pictures of those late blooming prickly pear blossoms we saw.

It was too dark.

But something went wrong.

***

My person found something to take pictures of anyway.

Sunset and Chimney Rock

And it wasn’t too dark.

Guess I’ve got to come up with another plan.

Taking Over

Bongo on his trail refusing to budgeThis is Gizmo.

You see, Bongo is out on his trails somewhere refusing to budge because of the thunder.

So I think it’s going to be a long time before he finally comes home.

I figured I’d better write this blog post for him so he doesn’t go a day without a post.

I’m sure he’ll thank me for it.

I’m not sure what he’s got against thunder anyway.

.

Me…?

Gizmo on Back 01

I just take it in stride.

Yeah, it’s nice and cozy here inside the house.

No worries about Bongo running right over me when he goes from one spot to another.

He does that, you know. He doesn’t seem to care what or who is in his way.

I’ll just take advantage of Bongo’s fear of moving along on his trail.

Gizmo on his side on the carpet

He’ll be out there for a long time.

***

Oops!

Here he comes now, and he looks mad.

Bongo with glowing eyes outside a glass door

Hey Bongo, I figured you’d be home late so I put together a blog post for you.

I hope you don’t mind.

White Fluffy Clouds

Thunder cloud build upCheck out these white fluffy clouds.

They look pretty, don’t they?

And how can such a pretty thing be anything but harmless?

Well, I’m here to tell you – looks can be deceiving.

Every year about this time, these clouds start showing up.

.

***

They even sneak up from behind the big rocks.

And these clouds are up to no good.

They’re full of all kinds of mischief and devious things.

Things like thunder, and lightning.

And every one of them is out to get me.

It might not be so bad if they showed up every once in awhile.

But they hang around my trails and my house for almost three months every year.

I’ve got to figure out something.

There must be some way to get them to go away.

If anybody has any ideas please let me know.

Because I’ve just about had it with these soft looking, fluffy clouds that aren’t so soft and fluffy.

See, I told you.

Their true nature is finally coming out.

Dark and nasty looking.

That’s what they turn into when they give off their thunder.

Bongo looking at more thunder clouds behind Sedona red rocks

Oh no! There’s more over there.

I’m outta’ here!

Could somebody come get me when it’s all over?
