My Person’s a Traitor

Bongo on the trailI can’t believe my person did that to me.

She’s a traitor.

Here’s what happened.

I took her on our walk as usual.

When we were almost back to the beginning of my trail we saw a bunch of my neighbor dogs hanging out.

The two little dogs I like, but those two German Shephards – they’re my arch enemies.

I don’t like them at all.

.

So you know what my person did?

The moon near Sugarloaf

I think the moon must have gotten to her.

Because she took me back home and locked me in dog jail.

Then she went right back out on the trails – my trails mind you, with those two German Shepherds and their people.

And they climbed to the top of that rock that the moon is next to.

I hope they used the trail around the back of it.

What am I saying?

For all I care, they could have climbed up the steepest part.

After all, they didn’t take me!

Mischief on Me

Bongo looking like he doesn't know what to doToday is Monday Mischief Day and if it was up to me I wouldn’t have a thing to write about today.

After all, I am the perfect dog.

I never get into mischief.

Well, if I do it’s all Scratchy’s fault.

But this weekend my people were totally full of mischief.

They locked me in dog jail and went off hiking without me.

I can’t believe they didn’t take me.

.

And they used some excuse about me going over the cliff.

Bongo part way down the cliff

Well yeah, there was water down there that time.

I wanted to get to the creek.

I won’t go down a cliff with no water at the bottom.

But not only would my people not listen to me, now my person is stealing my blog so she can post pictures on it.

And I’m not in a single one of them.

Talk about rubbing it in.

Travelling Afar

Bongo in the 4RunnerSometimes I go travelling in a car.

.

.

.

.

.

.

And sometimes I travel by foot.

Bongo heading down the trail

I’ve never before travelled so far that I couldn’t come back the same day.

But this time I went a whole lot further.

I’m not even sure how I got there.

I don’t remember getting there.

But I was there – I know it.

I have proof.

I really went there.

I really did go to Sydney.

I went and hung out with a bunch of friends.

My person says it takes hours and hours to get there from here – even if you go on a big jet.

I don’t remember hours and hours and I don’t remember anything about a big jet, so there must be another way.

My person told me there is another way.

She says I probably went there in my dreams.

Bongo curled up in his kennel

That must be it!

I never knew you could really travel somewhere in your dreams.

I guess I learned something today.

Because I’m not making this up.

I did really go there.

I’ve got proof.

And if you don’t believe me, click here.

See, I really was in Sydney, wasn’t I?

Trail Lost and Found

Bongo sniffing a red glove on the groundWe’ve been having such a warm winter that people on my trails keep taking off their clothes and dropping them.

I guess whoever belongs to this glove only had one hand that got too warm.

They must have still needed the other glove.

But something else was dropped too.

.

.

.

Bongo sniffing a bandana on the ground

Things keep appearing all over my trails.

People ought to do like I do.

Go outside a little early and check the wind.

Then they’d know if they needed all those extra clothes or not.

But there’s a place where all these extra clothes show up.

My person has even deposited things there.

Bongo looking at clothes on a rock

I call it the Trail Lost and Found.

Sometimes things show up there and they go away fast.

But other times things hang around there for a long time.

And I know why.

It’s still not cold enough.

Whoever dropped those extra clothes still doesn’t want to carry them around.

But if it gets really cold out I bet the Trail Lost and Found will empty out in no time.

So to keep the Lost and Found from getting piled too high I might have to do some searching to see if I can find the owners of the dropped clothes.

I’ll see if I can find some clues around here.

Bongo sniffing the bottom of a big rock

Hey, wait a minute!

What happened to that red glove?

Where is Everybody?

Bongo and prickly pear cactus in the sunThere are hardly any people – or dogs – on my trails compared to what there were a few weeks ago.

I don’t get it.

The weather hasn’t changed.

If anything it’s gotten warmer – and sunnier.

My person says they all left town after the holidays to go back home.

Back to their houses in the snow.

I wish they’d send some snow over here.

.

That would be perfect – warm sunny days with snow to play in.

But there’s no snow.

There’s no people.

And there’s no dogs.

Bongo looking like he doesn't know what to do

How am I supposed to have any adventures?

Bongo curled up in his kennel

Guess I’ll go take a nap.

Tag with chain hanging on a trail cairnWhat’s this?

There’s some kind of label on my trail cairn.

It’s never been here before.

I wonder what it’s supposed to do.

Maybe each trail cairn is going to get its own special tag.

Then when someone gives directions on my trails they don’t have to say, “Follow the cairns to the end of the trail.”

They could say, “Go past the red tagged cairn and turn left at the blue tagged cairn.”

That would make it so much easier to give directions.

Unless you forgot which tags were on which cairns.

.

If you told someone the wrong thing they might get really lost. They might end up at the trail that ends in a big hole instead of at the trail where they could climb a mountain like they really wanted to do.

Whoever put that tag on there needs to come up with something better.

But how am I going to tell them? I don’t even know who put that tag there.

Maybe if I sniff around I can find some clues.

Bongo sniffing trail cairn

I don’t know.

There’s been so many messages left here (including some of my old ones) that I don’t know if I’ll ever sort it all out.

Wait. What’s this?

This tag has another side.

Necklace on tag on cairn

The other side is a necklace.

And it says, “PASS IT ON!”

I’ve got it now.

This tag wasn’t left here to label the cairn – this necklace was left here for me.

So I could pass it on to the next one of my girlfriends that I see.

I wonder who my lucky girlfriend will be.

New Trail

Two Rock Piles marking a trailAs I walked along on my trails I saw something unusual.

New trail markers – one on each side of a trail.

Where there had been no trail the day before.

Strange. I didn’t know trails could just pop up like that.

Well, if there’s a new trail I guess I’d better explore it.

.

.

 

Bongo walking past the markers

So I went between the markers and started to wander down the trail.

It was such a new trail that I thought it was going to fizzle out.

It almost did – but it didn’t.

And you know where that trail took me.

Right to that place where I found those aliens the other day.

The ones that had turned to stone. I posted about it here.

But something had happened. The aliens were gone.

This is really serious because I thought I was safe.

I thought that since those aliens had turned to stone they were stuck and couldn’t go anywhere.

Now I don’t know where they are. They could pop out at any minute and I have no idea if they are friendly aliens or not.

Aliens could be lurking anywhere on my trails – ready to jump out and get me.

I don’t know what to do, but I might need your help.

Those aliens look like piles of stones, so if you see anything suspicious could you let me know?

I don’t want to be caught unawares.
