Summer Do

Bongo and LucyI met a strange dog on my trails today.

She was very friendly and wanted to play.

Most dogs I know just want to check me out.

It’s hard to find one who wants to play with me before even getting a friendly sniff.

While I appreciated the play, I still had to check her out.

***

Hey, wait a minute.

This isn’t a strange dog.

I know this dog.

This is my girlfriend Lucy!

With a haircut!

It’s a good thing a girl’s smell doesn’t change when she changes her hairdo.

Taking Over

Bongo on his trail refusing to budgeThis is Gizmo.

You see, Bongo is out on his trails somewhere refusing to budge because of the thunder.

So I think it’s going to be a long time before he finally comes home.

I figured I’d better write this blog post for him so he doesn’t go a day without a post.

I’m sure he’ll thank me for it.

I’m not sure what he’s got against thunder anyway.

.

Me…?

Gizmo on Back 01

I just take it in stride.

Yeah, it’s nice and cozy here inside the house.

No worries about Bongo running right over me when he goes from one spot to another.

He does that, you know. He doesn’t seem to care what or who is in his way.

I’ll just take advantage of Bongo’s fear of moving along on his trail.

He’ll be out there for a long time.

Oops!

Here he comes now, and he looks mad.

Bongo with glowing eyes outside a glass door

Hey Bongo, I figured you’d be home late so I put together a blog post for you.

I hope you don’t mind.

White Fluffy Clouds

Thunder cloud build upCheck out these white fluffy clouds.

They look pretty, don’t they?

And how can such a pretty thing be anything but harmless?

Well, I’m here to tell you – looks can be deceiving.

Every year about this time, these clouds start showing up.

.

***

They even sneak up from behind the big rocks.

And these clouds are up to no good.

They’re full of all kinds of mischief and devious things.

Things like thunder, and lightning.

And every one of them is out to get me.

It might not be so bad if they showed up every once in awhile.

But they hang around my trails and my house for almost three months every year.

I’ve got to figure out something.

There must be some way to get them to go away.

If anybody has any ideas please let me know.

Because I’ve just about had it with these soft looking, fluffy clouds that aren’t so soft and fluffy.

See, I told you.

Their true nature is finally coming out.

Dark and nasty looking.

That’s what they turn into when they give off their thunder.

Bongo looking at more thunder clouds behind Sedona red rocks

Oh no! There’s more over there.

I’m outta’ here!

Could somebody come get me when it’s all over?

The Rain Changes Everything

Bongo looking away from a prickly pear blossomIt rained last night.

Really hard.

For a long time.

It’s been a very long time since we had rain.

So today when I went out on my trails, everything looked different.

The first different thing I found was my girlfriend Lucy.

The rain must have brought her out, because I haven’t seen her in a very long time.

And then I saw…

Hey person, look over there.

No, not that direction.

There’s nothing for you to take pictures of that you would be interested in looking at in that direction.

***

There have been no flowers on my trails for awhile now.

It’s been nice.

.

But a late blooming prickly pear popped out after the rain and of course my person had to take a picture.

Prickly pear blossom

At least there were only two blossoms on all of my trails so I got my person moving along fairly quickly.

And then I saw it!!!

My puddle!

Bongo by his puddle

My puddle had returned!

It’s been so long since I’ve seen my puddle that I almost forgot about it.

But my person said we couldn’t stay forever – it was getting dark.

So we saw a few ho hum things on our way back from my puddle.

Clouds lit by the setting sun

And some clouds.

Boring.

Out of Jail

Peter preaching in the temple courtsWhat happened to those treats I was supposed to get after I listened to the story last week?

No, I didn’t get any treats.

Oh those?

Well, that wasn’t enough. I need more.

Now I have to listen to another story?

Oh, alright.

***

After the Sanhedrin let Peter and John go the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade. No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people.

***

I bet if they started handing out treats people would join them.

I am listening.

***

Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number. As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by.

***

Was it hot and they needed shade?

Okay, I’ll listen.

***

Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by evil spirits, and all of them were healed.

***

Do you think somebody could heal me?

You know what’s wrong with me.

I’m hungry.

I need treats.

***

Then the high priest and all his associates, who were members of the party of the Sadducees, were filled with jealousy.  They arrested the apostles and put them in the public jail.

***

Is that anything like my dog jail?

***

But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out.

***

Hey person, if you find me outside my dog jail when you get home sometime, that’s because an angel of the Lord let me out.

Of course I’ll listen. This is getting good.

***

“Go, stand in the temple courts,” the angel said, “and tell the people the full message of this new life.”

At daybreak they entered the temple courts as they had been told, and began to teach the people.

When the high priest and his associates arrived, they called together the elders of Israel – and sent to the jail for the apostles.

***

Boy do they have a surprise coming.

I am too listening.

***

But on arriving at the jail, the officers did not find them there. So they went back and reported. We found the jail securely locked, with the guards standing at the doors; but when we opened them, we found no one inside. On hearing this report, the captain of the temple guard and the chief priests were puzzled, wondering what would come of this.

***

I think those guys are going to be in trouble.

Well, I get in trouble sometimes. Shouldn’t they?

***

Then someone came and said, “Look! The men you put in jail are standing in the temple courts teaching the people.”

***

I think that means the good guys always win.

Now where’s my treats?

Deserted in the Storm

Bongo in his dog jail on his new bedYesterday was Independence Day and I think my people got it all wrong.

They thought they could be independent of me for awhile.

And they left me.

In dog jail.

While they went gallivanting about.

And while they were gone it rained.

And it thundered.

I got really scared.

I don’t think my people cared at all.

Because they didn’t get one drop of rain on them.

And the thunder was far away from where they were.

I hope you feel sorry for me now because I don’t think my people do.

They didn’t even bring me treats.

All they have to show for themselves are these pictures.

Eat Beans Day

Bongo with a can of beansToday is Eat Beans Day.

I was so excited when I heard that.

I mean, any holiday that has to do with food is okay by me.

I got out my can of beans and was ready to go when my person had to spoil the fun.

She reminded me of the last time I celebrated Eat Beans Day.

It wasn’t even on the right day so it shouldn’t count.

But I suddenly didn’t have an appetite for beans anymore.

***

And I’d better warn you about what can happen on Eat Beans Day.

Here’s what happened to me.

***

Who Spilled the Beans?

06JAN

Beans on the CarpetHey person, look at this pretty pattern I made on the carpet. Doesn’t it look nice?

What? I’m in trouble for that? No way!

.

.

.

.

I didn’t do it person. Honest, I swear. Scratchy did it. Look, he’s standing right over there. I just saw it and thought it was pretty. You know how much he likes to go counter surfing.

Scratchy near the Beans

What do you mean, most of the beans are missing? I don’t know what happened to them. Did you check under the furniture? Maybe Scratchy ate them.

I bet he could. I bet Scratchy could eat that many beans if he really put his mind to it. Can we go for a walk now? I really feel like I need to go for a walk.

Aaaahhhhh! That feels much better. Relief!

What!? You found the missing beans? Oh no!

Busted!!!

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.

Bongo leaving a message on some rocks

Guess I’ll just leave one of my own.

Spam

Bongo with a can of SpamI got really excited.

Because my person told me this would be a post about Spam.

So I got out a can of Spam and waited for my person to open it for me.

I mean, how can I write a post about something good to eat unless I scarf it down roll it around on my tongue and savor every last bit of it.

Then I can explain to you how great it tastes and tell you that you should get some too.

But my person wouldn’t open the can.

What does she want me to do?

Open it with my teeth?

I’ll do that if I have to.

My person told me this post was about another kind of spam.

What other kind of spam is there?

What do you mean, the kind I get on my blog all the time.

She must be hiding it from me or something, because if I got all the spam she says I do I’d be the happiest dog alive.

And I’m not.

Well, sometimes I get other treats – and then I am.

There’s one thing I want to know though.

WHERE’S MY SPAM?!!!

***

Words and messages?

I’m getting words and messages that I don’t want on my blog?

And this one was the most creative one of all?

If it’s so creative why don’t I want it?

I should let everybody reading my blog decide for themselves?

(Big sigh.) Okay, here’s what it says.

“Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.”

This is the spam I got?

This could drive a dog mad.
