Climbing School

Bongo looking at a vehicle with a paw print and a climbing school signI was heading out to my trails when something caught my attention in the parking lot.

The only obvious conclusion is that they are offering a climbing school for dogs.

Or maybe a climbing school with dogs as the instructors.

That would make sense.

Us four leggers are much better at climbing than two leggers.

And we could teach them a thing or two.

I bet they’re up there on my trails somewhere.

Probably heading for those tall rocks.

And I’m going after them.

Bongo heading up the trail

Come on, person. Don’t slow me down.

I’ve got to go sign up to teach climbing.

The Friendliest Dog

When I’m on my trails my person won’t let me get near any dogs that aren’t already my friends.

I don’t know how I’m supposed to make new friends if I can’t get near them.

But this cute little number…

Bongo sniffing noses with another dog

…ran right up to me.

My person had no chance to put a damper on things.

And now I have a new girlfriend.

See, I get along fine with other dogs.

But could you just do something about my arch enemy – you know, that German Shepherd who lives around the corner from us?

Person, if you don’t stop talking to her person I’m going to give that dog what for again.

Only dogs I like are allowed on my trails.

Send the others away and I’ll get along with every dog I meet.

And I’ll be the friendliest dog around.

Trail Spa

Bongo sniffing hair on the groundWhat is this?

Hmmm. It smells pretty good.

Kind of like one of my dog friends.

Wait a minute!

It is one of my dog friends.

Well, at least the hair of one of my dog friends.

.

Bongo sniffing more hair on the ground

There’s dog hair all over around here.

Somebody has turned this into a dog grooming trail.

A lot has happened on my trails, but this is the first I’ve heard of anyone being groomed on my trails.

Hey person, how come you don’t groom me here?

This looks like the spot to do it.

But wait a minute.

If somebody’s turning my trails into a grooming spot –

the next thing they’ll probably do is turn them into a fancy spa.

And they’ll probably do something like turn it all…

Sunset turning the trail pink

…pink.

Oh dear.

I might have to look for a new trail.

Pink and purple sunset sky

Yikes!

I’m outta here!

End of the Walk

Storm over Mingus MountainHey person, look.

Over there.

There’s a storm on that mountain.

And if I can see the storm and hear the thunder then it’s far too close for comfort.

.

.

.

Yup.

Bongo trying to run from thunder

That’s the end of this walk.

They’re Back

Bongo on the trailThey’re back.

They haven’t been hanging out on my trails for a long time.

But they’ve come back.

And that’s not good.

They’re not welcome on my trails.

Not ever.

I might have to go after them.

Find them and tell them to stay off my trails.

I bet I could get some of my dog friends to help.

And some of my people friends too.

Nobody likes them around.

They’re always up to no good.

And all it would take is a little bit of thoughtfulness.

A tiny bit of extra work.

.

But no, that’s too much for them.

I guess you can’t expect much from such ugly creatures.

Bongo looking at litter on the trail

These litter bugs are never going to amount to anything.

Bongo sniffing a rock with litter on it

Guess I’d better check for clues as to where these litter bugs are hiding.

Oh wait, I forgot something.

Bongo looking cool with his Detective Dog hat on

No one escapes from Detective Dog.

Pointing the Wrong Way

Bongo on the trail looking backNo no no, person.

You’re doing it all wrong.

You’re pointing your camera the wrong way.

You’re supposed to be pointing it at me.

.

.

.

.

 

What are you doing anyway?

There’s nothing interesting over there.

Sugarloaf lit in sunlight with the moon above it

Sugarloaf lit up with the moon above it

I’m not sure why, but I have this sudden urge to howl.

Big Mistake

Bongo on the trailBoy did I make a big mistake today.

A really big one.

Here’s what happened.

I took my person for a walk and we got to the place where we usually turn around and head back.

It was a really nice day and I wasn’t ready to head back yet.

So I kept on going.

Up the dry wash.

Usually my person won’t let me go further, but today she did.

And that was the biggest mistake of all.

***

Because you know what my person did then?

Prickly pear cactus surrounded by little yellow flowers

She found flowers.

Red Penstemon

And not just a few flowers.

Purple daisy

She found red ones, and purple ones, and yellow ones.

Bongo sniffing something behind the flowers

Can we go now, person?

This is getting really boring.

Yellow flower
