Who Will Win?

Bongo on the trail looking upI was walking along my trails minding my own business when I looked up.

And in a tree were two birds.

.

.

.

.

.

I wonder what would happen if one of them decided to pull mischief on the other.

Hummingbird and hawk in a tree

Which one would win?

Hawk

Would it be the hawk?

Definitely the largest and most powerful of the two.

A tried and true hunter.

Would the hawk win?

Or would it be…

Hummingbird in a tree

…the hummingbird?

I’m going for the hummingbird.

That hummingbird already has it’s pointy beak aimed directly at the hawk.

One perfectly aimed dive bomb and that hawk will never know what hit him.

I’m voting for the little guy.

***

Unless the little guy turns out to be…

…a cat.

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.

Bongo sniffing a taller stack of rocks on the trail

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.

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.
