Too Many Houses

Bongo sniffing the ground under a juniper treeHmmm.

There’s something different about this tree.

Person, what do you mean, I’m looking in the wrong spot?

There’s what?

Oh.

Bird house in a juniper tree

There’s something different in this tree.

What is that thing?

It doesn’t look natural.

It’s a what?

Bird house on tree trunk

A bird house?

Well that doesn’t make sense.

First they kick their nest house out of the tree in my yard.

And then they go putting up a fancier house in a tree on my trails.

And it doesn’t look like anybody’s even living in that house.

Some lucky bird!

I wish I had more houses than I knew what to do with.

But all I have is a …

…dog jail.

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.

Trail Spa

Bongo sniffing hair on the groundWhat is this?

Hmmm. It smells pretty good.

Kind of like one of my dog friends.

Wait a minute!

It is one of my dog friends.

Well, at least the hair of one of my dog friends.

.

Bongo sniffing more hair on the ground

There’s dog hair all over around here.

Somebody has turned this into a dog grooming trail.

A lot has happened on my trails, but this is the first I’ve heard of anyone being groomed on my trails.

Hey person, how come you don’t groom me here?

This looks like the spot to do it.

But wait a minute.

If somebody’s turning my trails into a grooming spot –

the next thing they’ll probably do is turn them into a fancy spa.

And they’ll probably do something like turn it all…

Sunset turning the trail pink

…pink.

Oh dear.

I might have to look for a new trail.

Pink and purple sunset sky

Yikes!

I’m outta here!

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.

Purple flowers

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

What if I…

Bongo sniffing purple flowers

…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.

Bongo heading toward two brown dogs

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.

Bongo sniffing another dog

Because treats might have affected my senses.

There’s nothing better than Eau de Dog.

Short Stacks

Bongo and a bunch of rocksA long time ago some strange rock piles appeared where the boys used to hang out near my trails.

Those rock piles stayed in that spot for a very long time.

And more and more rock piles showed up there.

There were so many that I don’t think anybody could walk around there anymore.

I was going to check it out but my person wouldn’t let me.

She said those rock piles were taller than me and a rock might fall on my head.

I’m not sure why she was worried.

She says I have a hard head.

I think it was just her excuse to keep me away from there.

***

But today, as I walked by that spot things were different.

The rock piles had shrunk – and some had gone away completely.

Bongo sniffing the rocks

Guess I’d better check for clues.

I’ve got to know what happened around here.

***

This is bad.

This is really bad.

There are so many mixed messages around here that I’ll never sort it all out.

Guess I’ll just leave one of my own.

My New Friend

Girl with a painted faceI got a new friend today.

My person must have been feeling guilty about not taking me to play with all those kids at Vacation Bible School…

…because she brought me a new friend.

It’s not every day that I get a new friend, so I was really excited when she showed up.

But I got kind of worried.

She might run out of room on her face for painting and try to paint mine.

.

.

.

So I decided to take her for a walk.

She started out to be a great walker.

Waiting patiently while I checked my messages.

Bongo sniffing while the girl is pulling on his leash

Well, I thought she was waiting patiently.

Come on, new friend.

I’m not finished checking my messages yet.

Bongo refusing to budge

This is really bad.

My person must have given my new friend lessons.

She’s yanking on my leash just like my person does.

I’d better explain to her what a disaster it could be if I miss an important message.

Bongo and the girl walking down the trail

Wait a minute, new friend.

You don’t get it.

I’ve got to go back.

Does anybody know where there’s a training class to teach people how to walk their dogs?
