Something Strange on the Ground

Bongo above a tiny bird nestThere’s something strange here on the ground.

I’m not sure what it is, but it’s little and round.

It’s not a rock.

There are lots of little round rocks on my trails, but this isn’t one of them.

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anything like this little round thing before.

Guess I’d better check it out.

.

Bongo checking out the nest

It has a smell to it.

Some kind of animal smell.

But it’s a smell that usually doesn’t come this close.

It comes from a distance. From up in the trees.

What kind of bird would put their nest on the ground?

Well, I guess the quail hang out on the ground a lot, but even the baby quail would barely fit in this little nest.

It must belong to some hummingbirds.

They’re the only birds small enough around here.

I’d better warn them.

If they lay their eggs in this nest on the ground somebody might eat them.

Like me.

Or maybe those up to no good javelina.

They’d probably like some dessert after eating all those prickly pear cactus.

But why would those hummingbirds put this little nest on the ground in the first place?

Small bird's nest on the ground

What, person?

It’s been really windy lately?

You think they’re trying to protect their nest from the wind?

They’d better watch it.

Those javelina are scarier than the wind.

A Good Day

Bongo in front of the fence he jumpedToday was a good day.

I had one of the most fun adventures I’ve had in a long time.

Here’s what happened.

My person let me outside this morning and it was a beautiful morning.

Warm and sunny.

I wanted to stay outside.

Usually my person won’t let me stay outside by myself, but I curled up in a sunny spot looking innocent and she let me this time.

Something about being too busy to chase me all over the yard.

Usually I don’t like it when she’s too busy, but sometimes busy can be a good thing.

So she went back in the house and I couldn’t resist.

You see that fence behind me?

I jumped it.

And I was free!

I wandered around the neighborhood having a great time.

I think I saw my person’s car driving by after awhile.

Guess I should head back closer to home.

Oh, here comes my person walking out of the house now.

Oh great! Time to play chase.

Come on person. I’m right here across the street.

Bongo on the corner of the street

I love it when she comes after me.

I stay just far enough away so she can’t get me.

And look, she’s so insecure she can’t go anywhere without that leash in her hand.

I don’t want it attached to me so I think I’ll go say hi to the neighbor.

I’m sure he’s good for some loves.

Hey wait neighbor. You didn’t tell me you were in cahoots with my person.

That old grabbing me by the collar trick.

I fall for it every time.

Decorating the Cactus

Prickly pear cactus with gum on itLook at this!

Somebody’s decorating the cactus on my trails.

And it isn’t even Christmas.

Oh, I know.

It’s almost Easter and this is kind of an Eastery color.

It must be an Easter decoration.

I saw a bunny today. Maybe it was the Easter Bunny coming to decorate.

But wait.

Is this really an Easter decoration?

Gum on prickly pear cactus

This looks like it might be a balloon.

A balloon that had the bad luck of landing on these pricklers and popping.

Maybe I should investigate this and find out what’s really going on.

Bongo looking like he wants something done about the rocks across the trail

Hey person, can you go get my Detective Dog hat for me?

I’ve got an important investigation and I don’t have time to get it myself.

What do you mean, I don’t need my Detective Dog hat?

What clue?

You’ve got a clue for me?

Three sticks of gum

What kind of a clue is that?

If you won’t get my Detective Dog hat for me I guess I’m going to have to get it myself.

I’ve got some serious investigating to do.

And I don’t think I’m going to ask my person to help.

What’s for Dinner?

Prickly Pear Cactus with bites out of itSomeone has been pulling mischief on my trails.

Just look at this!

They’ve been eating the prickly pear cactus.

This has got to be a real mischief maker for sure.

I mean, who would want to eat cactus?

Those things are full of pricklers.

But somebody has.

.

And I’m going to investigate.

Detective Dog

Detective Dog to the rescue!

Here’s more prickly pears with bites.

Prickly pear cactus with bite out of it

I don’t believe it!

And this Detective Dog hat is making me smart.

I think I know who the culprit is already.

Because right here is where I saw that culprit the other day.

And if it wasn’t him, it was one of his buddies.

Drawing of a javelina

Now all I have to do is find the javelina with cactus pricklers sticking out of his mouth.

Arrested!

Giuseppe Cesari [Public domain], via Wikimedia CommonsWhat? What?

What are you disturbing my nap for?

Jesus just woke up His disciples and told them His betrayer is coming?

Where?

What betrayer?

Okay, I’m listening.

***

While He was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them.

***

Maybe they wanted to invite Jesus to a party.

I am listening.

***

Judas approached Jesus to kiss him…

***

See, I told you.

***

but Jesus asked him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?

***

Oh, it was a sneaky kiss.

Better to hang out with a dog and get slobbery kisses.

***

When Jesus’ followers saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, should we strike with our swords?” And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.

***

That’s telling them.

I wish I’d been there. I really would have given that crowd what for.

Okay, I’ll listen.

***

But Jesus answered, “No more of this!” And He touched the man’s ear and healed him.

“Put your sword away!”

***

That man’s about to arrest Jesus and He heals him?

I don’t get it.

***

Then Jesus said to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard, and the elders, who had come for Him, “Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come with swords and clubs? Every day I was with you in the temple courts, and you did not lay a hand on me. But this is your hour – when darkness reigns.”

***

Didn’t they have any flashlights?

What to do with Flowers

White FlowerI don’t believe it!

My person made me go on a different path today because she saw some flowers on it.

We don’t need any extra flowers.

It’s bad enough stopping for flowers on my regular trails.

Now I’ve got to stop while she takes pictures of strange trail flowers.

Alien flowers.

That’s what they are.

Popping up in unusual places and forcing my person to take pictures of them.

.

I’m going to have to do something about this.

Bongo and a white flower

I’ll get you my pretties!

Yeah, you’re about the right size for my feet.

Bongo almost stepping on the flower

This flower was made to be trampled.

And don’t you even think about popping up out of the ground again.

Wrong People

Bongo at the vet looking for treatsLast time I went to the vet I got the wrong people.

I don’t know what was wrong with them, but the usual people – the ones who usually take me into the room and stick things up my butt and stuff…

Well, the usual people give me lots of treats.

The whole time I’m in that room they’re giving me treats.

And loves.

Lots of loves.

That’s why I like going to the vet.

But the people I got last time I was there didn’t do that.

No treats – no loves.

Well, at least not until everything was over.

Bongo at the vet looking at jars with medical supplies in them

Those jars up there – I bet that’s where all the treats are.

When those vet people come back in here they’d better empty those jars and give me all the treats.

***

I thought I was getting lucky for a minute, but they must have grabbed the wrong jar because what they pulled out of it wasn’t a treat.

Next time I go to the vet I’d better get those treat and loves people back –

Or I’m going hunting for a new vet.

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?

What’s the Mystery?

Bongo sniffing a bushWhat mystery?

Where?

I met one of my neighbors on my trails today and he said there was a mystery.

I’m trying to figure out what he’s talking about.

How can Detective Dog solve a mystery if he doesn’t know what it is?

Maybe I’ll figure it out if I put on my Detective Dog hat.

.

.

.

.

Bongo with Detective Dog hat covering his eyes

Okay, where’s that mystery?

My neighbor was talking about what?

The mystery of the clouds?

If they’re not on my trails and I can’t smell them, then it must not be a mystery worthy of Detective Dog’s time.

Besides, what’s so mysterious about clouds?

Strange cloud shapes?

Wind blown clouds over Chimney Rock

Strange shaped clouds

Strange shaped clouds near the sun

I’m leaving the mystery of the strange cloud shapes to my neighbor.

I’m heading back inside. It’s awfully windy out here.

Happy April Fool’s Day!

Happy April Fool’s Day everybody!

Bongo with two fingers behind his head

What!?

I am not the one being fooled!

What bunny ears? Where?

There’s no bunny in here.

This foolishness has got to stop!

***

I can’t believe my person thinks she fooled me.

Just wait till she wants her fingers back.
