Sunset Surprise

Sunset in SedonaThe other day I finally figured out how to photobomb my person’s flower pictures.

But now I’ve got a new challenge.

I’ve been taking my person on some walks kind of late in the day.

It’s too dark for flower pictures, so I don’t even have to worry about photobombing them.

But now my person found something else to take pictures of.

.

.

Something you can only see this time of day.

Sunset in Sedona

Flowers are easy to photobomb.

I’m bigger than the flowers.

But what do I do about the sky?

Sunset in Sedona

The sky is bigger than me – and it’s higher than me.

What am I going to do?

There’s got to be a way.

And I’m going to find it.

Person, when I figure this out you’re going to be in trouble.

And so is your camera.

This is such a challenge.

What can I do about this?

Wait a minute.

I’m closer to my person’s camera than the sky is.

That’s got to count for something.

Bongo and the sunset

Take that you sunset!

Everybody’s looking at me now.

Rock n Roll

Bongo by a broken rockHere I am reporting from a dry wash in the middle of my trails.

What? I’ve got to explain myself?

Oh. Dry wash.

Well, it’s dry – most of the time.

That’s why they call it a dry wash.

But sometimes when there’s a lot of rain the water washes through.

That’s why they call it a wash.

So here I am in the middle of this dry wash and I see something strange.

***

A rock – a pretty big rock – broken in two.

Broken rock

It must have come rolling down the wash and hit this other rock hard.

But if this rock was tumbling down fast enough to hit that rock and break, then I don’t think the wash was dry.

There must have been water flowing through really fast.

Does that mean it was a wet wash?

I guess so.

But I’ve never heard anyone talk about a wet wash.

But there’s something else too.

A rock that hits hard enough to break would probably make a lot of noise.

Maybe a thunder-like noise.

And a dry wash turns into a wet wash when there’s a lot of rain.

And most of the time when there’s thunder there’s rain.

So maybe there’s no such thing as thunder.

It’s noisy rocks instead.

So now I’ve got a plan.

If I could get the City of Sedona to ban all rocks from being here and send them far away, then I’d be a happy dog.

I’m on my way to the Mayor’s office.

I’m sure he’ll think it’s a great idea.

***

Note from Bongo’s Person: If you’re not familiar with Sedona, it’s famous for its rocks.

Too Dark

Bongo's FaceA few days ago I figured out the master plan.

And it worked – sort of.

You see, I decided to wait to take my person for walks until the sun is almost down and everything is in shadow.

That way there’s nothing for my person to take pictures of.

It’s too dark.

My person has been going along with the late walks because it’s not so hot outside.

But she still tries to take pictures.

Usually she gives up pretty quickly because it’s too dark for anything to turn out.

So today I did my best to stall my person until it got dark enough.

Notice, you don’t see a picture of me balking.

It was too dark.

And you don’t see any pictures of those late blooming prickly pear blossoms we saw.

It was too dark.

But something went wrong.

***

My person found something to take pictures of anyway.

And it wasn’t too dark.

Guess I’ve got to come up with another plan.

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.

Oh no! There’s more over there.

I’m outta’ here!

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

Stealing My Rocks

Thunder Mountain behind smokeThere has been some real mischief going on around here this weekend.

Someone is trying to steal my red rocks.

I looked outside and they were slowly fading away.

They came back later in the day, but whoever was after them must be really persistent.

.

.

.

.

Because the next morning they were hardly there at all.

Sedona rocks covered in smoke

I don’t know what I’m going to do.

Without my rocks this place won’t be the same.

Look at this!

Sedona Rocks covered in smoke

My person says there’s a fire and it’s the smoke that’s stealing the rocks.

Well, that must be some pretty mischievous smoke.

I’ve never heard of such a thing.

I hope all those firefighters that are fighting that fire can capture all the smoke and send it away.

Because what if that smoke tries to steal something more than my rocks?

Bongo faded out

Like meeeeee!

Where there’s Smoke…

Bongo in his kennel chewing on his frogHey, how come I don’t get to go?

That’s not fair.

That big camera always wins out over me.

It’s not like I’m gonna break your camera or anything.

I won’t yank on the leash and pull you over on top of the camera.

Besides, if you fell on your camera wouldn’t it be your fault?

So what are you taking pictures of?

Smoke?

That’s not very interesting.

You should be taking pictures of me.

There’s a fire?

Where?

You can’t leave me in dog jail if there’s a fire.

What if I get stuck in here and I can’t get out?

Those cats would leave the house without me.

You know how they are.

Are you sure it’s not that close?

.

Okay, I’ll look at the pictures.

Coffeepot Rock with smoke in the distance

Yeah, I guess it is far away.

But what if it comes closer?

Smoke from fire in the distance

See, I told you this was gonna come closer.

Let me out of this dog jail and grab onto my leash!

I’ll protect you.

Oh, and leave your big camera at home.

***

P.S. My person says we are safe from this fire, but asks for prayer for the people who have been evacuated from their homes, and for all the firefighters who are fighting this fire. This is the Slide Fire in Oak Creek Canyon in Arizona between Sedona and Flagstaff.

Treat on the Trail

Bongo and Layla meeting on the trailSomething great happened on my trails the other day.

I was walking along, minding my own business, on a part of my trails where hardly anybody else goes – when I saw her.

My girlfriend Layla.

I hadn’t seen Layla in a very long time.

Weeks, or maybe even months.

So I was really excited.

.

Some of my dog friends don’t like to play much, but Layla loves to play.

Bongo and Layla playing

We ran, and jumped, and had a great time.

But after awhile it was time to get serious.

I’m not sure if I wore Layla out, or she didn’t like that serious part because she left me.

Layla walking away from Bongo

Layla, come back!

I guess I’ve blown it again.

The only ones that seem to stick around are the cats.
