Find a Rainbow Day

Bongo on the kitchen floorToday is Find a Rainbow Day.

That means I’d better go find a rainbow.

We did have a rare occurrence last night.

Rain.

So there must be a rainbow out there somewhere.

I didn’t think that a rainbow would be hiding in my house, so I took my person out for a walk.

It was a struggle getting her away from the computer, but I finally convinced her we had to go.

There were things to do and rainbows to see.

So I sniffed a few bushes to see if I could catch the rainbow scent.

.

Bongo Sniffing Bushes

Nothing there.

I checked behind a bush.

Bongo sniffing behind a sunlit bush

Still no luck.

Maybe there’s a rainbow hanging out with the flowers.

That seems like a logical place for a rainbow to be.

Bongo eating weeds under the bush of white flowers

I don’t know where these rainbows hide themselves.

I’m having no luck finding one.

Bongo sniffing below a sunlit tree

No rainbows around the trees either.

How can I celebrate Find a Rainbow Day if I can’t find one?

I finally gave up and decided to head back home for a nap.

Maybe I can dream about rainbows.

I headed into the house and I happened to look up at the sky.

Rainbow, clouds, and moon

What is that rainbow doing up there?

Where They Went Without Me

Bongo on the trail wearing his bandannaI’ve been so occupied with the cats that were hanging out here that I never told you where my people went while I was stuck at the dog hotel last week.

Well, I did tell you about the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. That’s the only important place they went anyway.

But my person threatened to take away my blog if I didn’t share with you where they went.

Do you believe it!?

First I’m forced to put up with all these cats and then I get threatened that my blog will be taken away.

I guess I’d better tell you. If I lost my blog I’d have no way to share all my adventures.

But since I wasn’t there I’m just going to show you some of the pictures.

If you’re wondering where they went, some of these pictures are from Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park in Southern Utah, and some are from Navajo Bridge near Lee’s Ferry and Antelope Canyon in Northern Arizona.

Watch out for the animals.

I sure hope I’m back to my own adventures tomorrow.

Happy Spring!

Yellow flowersSome flowers popped out on my trails today.

I tried to walk by them really fast and hope my person wouldn’t notice – but she did.

And of course she had to stop and take pictures.

She looks for any excuse to get out her camera.

So while I hung around waiting for my person to finish taking pictures I realized something.

Today is the first day of spring.

So these flowers came out to celebrate.

And tomorrow won’t be a special day anymore.

So maybe the rest of the flowers on my trails will realize they missed their chance and they won’t show up this year.

I mean, what’s a flower if it misses the first day of spring?

And if I keep my person occupied enough with walking, she won’t stop and take pictures of anything else either.

Come on, person. We’ve got places to go – trails to explore.

A trail is no place for a camera, and tomorrow I’m sure there won’t be any flowers showing up.

So happy first day of Spring!

The only day with flowers to take pictures of.

***

What, person?

What do you mean, these are the first of bunches of flowers on my trails?

You’re going to make me wait while you take pictures of them all spring and summer?

That’s terrible!

What am I going to do?

Bongo profile on the trail

I think I’m going to have to find some new trails for awhile.

Leaf Dropping

Manzanita bush with leaves on the groundWhat’s this?

This is the wrong time of the year.

And those leaves are the wrong color to be on the ground.

As a matter of fact, Manzanita leaves don’t fall to the ground.

They stay on the bushes all year.

And since this is the only place on my whole trails with a pile of leaves like this, I know there’s some culprit somewhere who is guilty of leaf dropping.

.

And it’s up to me to find out who it is.

Bongo sniffing the manzanita bush

I’m sure that leaf dropper left some evidence somewhere around this bush.

Hmmm. It’s hard to sort out the messages.

I’d better work on it though.

After all it is one of my favorite things to do.

Bongo sniffing under the manzanita bush

I bet there’s something under here.

It’s closer to the grounded leaves.

I’m sure there’s something under here that will give me a hint as to who the culprit is.

Bongo sniffing the bush with his feet near the fallen leaves

Nothing. Nada. I’m not having any luck.

I’m not finding any clues anywhere.

There’s only one thing I can tell for sure.

Those leaves have fallen and they can’t get up.

Monster Outside

Bongo outside with glowing eyesSomething really scary happened at my house.

There was a monster outside in my yard.

He had glowing eyes and he beckoned me to come out with him.

I don’t know what he wanted to do to me, but there was no way I was going to hang out with that monster.

So I stayed inside.

.

.

.

.

.

Bongo looking like he doesn't know what to do

I stayed close to my dog jail so I could hide in there if I needed to.

But then that monster came closer.

He tried to get in the house.

He even scratched on the door.

Bongo with glowing eyes outside a glass door

This is getting really serious.

Bongo looking serious

What am I going to do!?

That monster is going to break through the door!

Then my person got up.

I tried to warn her but she went over to the door anyway.

And she opened it.

Yikes! Woof! Bark bark! Yeoww! Woo woo!

I gave that monster what for and then my person said the strangest thing.

That monster is not me!

How can that monster be me?

Look, I’m sitting here as perfect as can be.

Bongo looking kind

I’ve been here all the time.

And I did not put those scratches on that door.

You know there’s a monster out there.

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?

Big, Big Dogs

Horse shoe prints in the dustWhat a day I had!

First, I saw these strange prints on my trails.

They don’t look like people prints and they’re certainly not from any animal I know.

I saw prints like these once, a long time ago.

And I never did figure out what they were.

I started to head home to get my Detective Dog hat and figure out this mystery when I came across another clue.

.

Bongo checking out horse droppings

Hmmm. This stuff tastes kind of good. I wonder where it came from.

My person wouldn’t let me finish the stuff off – and I guess it would have destroyed all the evidence anyway – so I continued on my way to get my hat.

When I saw them.

The biggest dogs I have ever seen in my life!

Two horses coming down the trail

And they were coming right at me!

They passed right by me on my trails.

Two horses on the trail with Thunder Mountain in the background

And there were people riding on their backs.

My person better never try to ride on my back.

Oh oh. Here come some more of those dogs.

Two more horses coming down the trail

Hey, where are those big dogs going?

Do you believe it? They just walked by me.

Horses walking away

And they didn’t even stop to say “Hi.”

Bongo trying to chase after the horses

Hey big dogs, come back here!

I’m not through with you yet.

***

This is terrible!

Not only did those big dogs just walk away…

Bongo's leg with cactus stickers in it

They made a cactus try to hold me in place so I couldn’t follow them.

I’ll take care of those dogs alright.

They won’t get away with ignoring me on my own trails.

Helicopter in the air

I’m sending the helicopter squad out to pick them up.

Slacking on the Job

Bongo on the trail with his leash stretched behind himYou see what’s attached to me?

No, no! Not the leash.

Well, I guess you can’t see what’s attached to my leash, but you can probably figure it out.

My person is on the other end of it.

It’s kind of a burden sometimes but it’s one of my jobs.

I’ve got to take her out so she can get her exercise.

I thought all dogs had this on their job description.

.

But I found one today who doesn’t seem to think so.

Brown dog hiding in the bushes

Who is that hiding in the bushes?

I wonder if she ditched her person by going places her person couldn’t follow.

Brown Dog

Here she comes.

Hey brown dog, if you’d stay on the trail like me you could be doing your dogly duty and giving your person exercise.

Brown Dog on the trail

Say what?

Don’t tell me what to do.

It’s a little late to be hitting the trail now.

Where is your person anyway?

Brown dog walking away

Fine. Be that way.

What is it with these personless brown dogs anyway?

It seems to be turning into an epidemic around here.

Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friends Day

Bongo splashing the waterDo you know what today is?

It’s one of my favorite days.

Well, it’s going to be one of my favorite days. I didn’t know about this holiday last year.

Today is Step in a Puddle and Splash Your Friends Day.

I was really looking forward to splashing…

.

.

 

Bongo Getting One More Swim

Or maybe even swimming and splashing.

As long as I could get my people all wet.

But here’s what happened.

I went to my favorite puddle…

Bongo at the place where a puddle used to be

And it was gone!

Without my puddle how could I celebrate this special holiday?

So I talked my people into taking me on a new trail.

Bongo and his younger person on a trail

One that I’ve never been on before.

And I heard that it ended up at a creek.

So we wandered around and up and down and finally we ended up…

Bongo standing at the top of the world

At the top of the world!

I sat there with my younger person…

Bongo and his younger person looking at the view

And it didn’t seem like he was going to move.

Bongo and younger person sitting and looking at the view

I’ve got to figure something out – because now I know where the puddle is.

Bongo getting restless

And I’m going to find a way to get there.

Bongo looking the other way

Over there looks like a good place to start.

Bongo heading down the cliff

Yup, this way’s going to get me there.

Bongo part way down the cliff

Hey guys, this is the right way. Come on down here!

Bongo being made to climb back up

What do you mean, I’ve got to climb back up?

Bongo back on top

You’re missing the whole point.

I haven’t splashed in a puddle yet.

When are my people ever going to learn?

Missing Person

Detective DogYesterday my investigation was a bust.

I guess even Detective Dog can’t be perfect all the time.

But today I have another investigation.

I’m sure I’ll get to the bottom of this one.

You see, there is a personless dog that sometimes runs around my neighborhood.

.

.

.

.

 

Brown dog near a road

All the dogs in my neighborhood have people that they take on walks with them, except this poor dog.

I really have to admire this dog though.

I mean, how many dogs would go on walks if it wasn’t for needing to give their people exercise?

Giving your people their exercise is such a good motivator, but this dog goes on walks by himself.

He even does some jogging.

Brown dog jogging

But where are this dog’s people? Why aren’t they letting him take them on walks?

That’s what I need to investigate.

I almost had an answer right from the dog’s mouth.

I saw him a ways off on my trails and then he started following me home.

I was all ready to befriend him. He really looks like he could use some friends.

But my person totally blew it for me.

Because every time she walks toward this dog he runs in the opposite direction.

Dog running away

My person is not doing a very good job.

I think I may have to fire her and hire myself a new assistant.

I bet this dog needs a job.
