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.

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.

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?

Hanging Out

Bongo in the yardIt seems like every time I take my person for walks she gets her camera out.

She’s always making me wait while she takes pictures of flowers and stuff.

It’s frustrating.

I’ve got places to go and things to sniff – and all my person wants to do is stay in one spot and take pictures.

But when it comes to my yard, I’m not allowed to hang out there.

I get to go do my business and then I have to come right back in.

I don’t know what my person’s problem is.

Just because I jumped the fence once or twice.

I only do it when I’m bored.

***

But I finally figured it out.

You see, a thistle popped up in my yard and there aren’t any thistles on my trails.

So when my person was out pulling weeds I hid it from her.

And it worked.

Because that thistle bloomed and just like I knew she would…

My person headed out with her camera.

And I got to hang out in the yard.

In the Shadows

Bongo on the trail I finally figured it out.

I’m a genius!

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before.

You see, my person is always making me wait while she takes pictures of flowers on my trails.

But she likes to take those pictures when the lighting is just right.

So I’ll only take her out on my trails when the lighting is all wrong.

When the sun is almost down and everything is in shadow.

The light’s no good for flower pictures, and this time of year the temperature is much better in the shadows.

So that’s what I’m gonna do.

No more walks in perfect light for my person.

It’s shadows from now on.

I bet her camera won’t even work.

***

Hey person, what do you think you’re doing?

It must be some kind of reflex or something.

My person gets her camera out by pure habit.

Oh no.

Stop person!

Don’t click that camera!

Can’t you see you’re wasting your memory card space?

You might need it to take pictures of me.

What is this?

Either my person has lost it, or she can’t see anything in these shadows.

Grassy plant blooming

That’s not even a flower.

Don’t Look

Bongo in front of a blooming cholla cactusDon’t look person.

There’s nothing over here.

Just keep walking on the trail.

I’ll catch up with you as soon as I take care of business.

Just don’t look this way.

Red cholla cactus flowers

Person, you weren’t supposed to look over here.

I didn’t want you to see those cactus flowers.

Now I’m stuck.

She’ll be here taking pictures forever.

.

Red cholla cactus flowers

See. I told you so.

***

Whew! She didn’t take too many pictures this time.

Now we can get on with our walk.

Wait a minute!

What are you doing?

My person is so desperate to take pictures that she’s finding flowers that don’t even exist.

Green cholla cactus flowers

Since when do we have green flowers on my trails?
