Sunset Surprise

Sunset in SedonaThe other day I finally figured out how to photobomb my person’s flower pictures.

But now I’ve got a new challenge.

I’ve been taking my person on some walks kind of late in the day.

It’s too dark for flower pictures, so I don’t even have to worry about photobombing them.

But now my person found something else to take pictures of.

.

.

Something you can only see this time of day.

Flowers are easy to photobomb.

I’m bigger than the flowers.

But what do I do about the sky?

Sunset in Sedona

The sky is bigger than me – and it’s higher than me.

What am I going to do?

There’s got to be a way.

And I’m going to find it.

Person, when I figure this out you’re going to be in trouble.

And so is your camera.

This is such a challenge.

What can I do about this?

Wait a minute.

I’m closer to my person’s camera than the sky is.

That’s got to count for something.

Bongo and the sunset

Take that you sunset!

Everybody’s looking at me now.

Stack on Stack

Bongo sniffing a stack of rocks on the trailCheck this out.

You see those rocks that are covered with wire?

Well, those are supposed to be there.

They mark the trail for people who don’t know where it is and can’t smell it.

If people were like us dogs they’d smell their way along the trail and they wouldn’t need trail markers at all.

But apparently, instead of not needing any markers, someone needed extra markers – because they stacked extra rocks on top of the ones that are supposed to be there.

And then to make sure nobody missed them, they shone a light right on them.

I’ve got to figure out how they did that light thing.

 

So while I was still deep into my investigation…

…I came back the next day and the mystery had deepened.

I mean heightened.

There were more rocks on the stack.

And the light was still there.

I’ve got to figure out that light thing.

Maybe I can get it to shine on me.

I’d love to be in the spotlight.

It’s Saul’s Turn

Hans Speckaert (circa 1540–circa 1577) [Public domain], via Wikimedia CommonsWait a minute!

You told me that story about Philip who popped in and out and then went on his way preaching the gospel.

I guess God helped Philip pop far enough away from Saul that he didn’t have to worry about him.

Hey, what about that mean old Saul, anyway?

I thought you said someone was going to take care of him.

What?

You’re going to tell me about that right now?

Okay, I’m all ears.

***

Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples.

***

I’ll breathe out murderous threats on you Saul.

I’ll listen, but who’s gonna take care of Saul?

It might have to be me.

***

Saul went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem.

***

Okay, I’m going after him.

Oh, wait. Did you say Saul was going to Damascus?

Isn’t that in Syria?

I might not have to take care of Saul.

Maybe he’ll run into ISIS.

I am listening.

***

As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”

“Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.

“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

***

Wait a minute.

Did I just hear that right?

I don’t have to do anything to Saul, and ISIS won’t get a chance – because Jesus took care of him?

And when Saul was persecuting Jesus’ followers he was really persecuting Jesus?

That means ISIS is in trouble.

***

The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone. Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus. For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

***

That serves Saul right.

And if he’s not eating that’s extra treats for me.

Thank you Jesus.

Photobombing the Flowers

Purple flowerIn the spring we get lots of flowers and then most of them disappear for the summer.

And this time of year more flowers show up.

Lots of yellow flowers and a few purple ones too.

Anyone who’s known me for awhile knows how frustrated I get when my person starts taking pictures of flowers.

Well, she did it again.

.

.

.

.

She went after those purple flowers.

So I decided it was about time I do something about it.

What if I…

…photobomb her flower pics.

So I started getting in the way every time my person got her camera out.

Until I realized I didn’t need to do that anymore.

Because…

…an ant had beaten me to it.

A Good Day Gets Better

Bongo on the trailI headed out on my trails, enjoying my afternoon walk, and thinking that it can’t get better than this.

Well, maybe if my person had brought some treats along it would have been better.

But it was pretty good.

And suddenly it did get better.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Because not one, but two of my girlfriends came running up to me.

I hadn’t seen them in awhile so it was a great reunion.

And for once I was happy that I hadn’t had any treats.

Because treats might have affected my senses.

There’s nothing better than Eau de Dog.

Sleeping Spots

Bongo curled up on the bathroom tileIn the summer when it’s hot one of my favorite places to sleep is in the bathroom.

On the nice, cool tile.

While the cats sleep on the futon.

Plotting against me, I’m sure.

But something went wrong.

I’m not sure what happened.

Maybe there was a cat fight or something.

Gizmo, could you at least give me my mat back?

Cat Containers

Bongo caught lying in his kennelOkay, I’ve got to tell you what’s been going on at my house while I’ve been absent from my blog.

There seems to be a great jealousy of my dog jail kennel from the cats.

I guess they wish they had one as nice as mine.

But I’m guarding it and I might need to put a sign up that says “No Cats Allowed!”

So the cats have had to settle for second best.

.

.

Scratchy had to go to the vet the other day so his cat jail was sitting out.

And he’s claiming it – or guarding it – or something.

Who would want your silly old cat cage anyway Scratchy?

It’s too little to be any good.

***

Now Gizmo, not to be left out, had to get creative.

He made his own little cubby.

Not as good as mine…

But I have to admit that Gizmo is innovative.

Or is that in na box?
