Mischief on Me

Bongo looking at the sunset from his trailBelieve me, there has been some mischief around here.

And it wasn’t me.

It wasn’t even the cats.

It started with my person.

She pulled the sick thing – said she wasn’t up to taking me for a walk.

And I missed walks on two sunny, blue-sky days.

And then when she finally felt like she was up to taking me for a walk – it thundered.

And anybody who knows me knows that I don’t like thunder.

So here I am.

Three days of no walks.

What?

The thunder’s stopped?

We’re going for a walk?

.

Bye guys. I’m outta here!

Bright orange clouds in the sunset

Okay, I’m back.

That was a short walk.

And I think my person just wanted to take pictures of the sunset.

Orange clouds at sunset

She says she was doing it so I wouldn’t notice the other cloud.

What other cloud?

Thunder cloud in the sunset

What? Wait!

That’s no cloud.

That’s a thunderstorm!

I’m outta here!

Safe Walk?

Bongo looking at the trailI decided to take my person for a walk a little earlier than usual today.

We had the trails to ourselves – except for the lizards and birds, that is – because nobody uses my trails in the middle of the day in the summer.

The clouds were covering the sun and it was not quite as hot as usual.

But that’s what I was watching.

.

The clouds.

Clouds

Pretty harmless so far.

I think we can keep going.

Cloud buildups with the sun on top

The sun’s still around.

Let’s walk further.

Cloud buildups behind Thunder Mountain

We’d better hurry.

That cloud’s beginning to look like something.

I’m not sure what, but it’s something.

Dark cloud buildups

Ummmmm…

Dark cloud buildups

Alright, I’m outta’ here.

That’s enough walking for today.

What a Difference a Day Can Make

Bongo on the trailYesterday was the worst day ever!

All day long there was thunder, thunder, thunder.

I didn’t dare take my person for a walk.

She would have gotten scared and run off for sure.

The thunder finally stopped at night, but the rain kept coming.

All night long it rained – and even into the morning.

But finally, everything changed.

My people left me – well, that’s another story – but while they were gone my neighbor dog Toby came and busted me out of dog jail and we went for a walk together.

Finally, my people came back home.

I got to show my person how much nicer things were on my trails.

The sun had come bursting through the clouds, the rain had cooled things down, the air was clean and fresh, and the hummingbirds darted here and there because there wasn’t even any wind.

And everywhere I stuck my nose…

Bongo sniffing some grass

…there were great sniffs.

Bongo sniffing some rocks

And more great sniffs.

Bongo in his puddle

My puddle was full.

Bongo under a juniper tree

I even found a tree that was willing to scratch my back.

Bongo sniffing the base of a bush

Oh, and did I remember to tell you how many great sniffs I found?

A day sure can make a difference.

Not That Way

Bongo's profile with his tongue outYesterday we had a lot of thunder.

So I decided not to take my person for a walk.

Who knows what she would have done if we got way out on my trails and it thundered on top of her.

***

Today we had more thunder.

But it kind of calmed down so I thought I’d brave it.

See if my person could handle it.

Because two days in a row is a long time to go without a walk.

My trails would miss me.

***

Everything was fine at first until it was time to turn around and head back.

Bongo heading up a dry wash

Hey person, you don’t want to go back that way.

That’s where the thunder is.

Let’s keep heading up this way.

Bongo pulling against his leash

Seriously person, you do not want to go back that way.

That thunder is dangerous!

Bongo facing a large rock as he pulls against his leash

Maybe if I hide behind this rock my person will get the message.

***

Okay fine, I came a little way with you.

I’m not going any further.

Bongo at the top of a little hill with his leash taut

I’m at the top of the hill.

I can see further and this is definitely far enough.

Bongo pulling against his leash from the top of the hill

You just don’t seem to get it, do you person.

My Person’s a Traitor

Bongo on the trailI can’t believe my person did that to me.

She’s a traitor.

Here’s what happened.

I took her on our walk as usual.

When we were almost back to the beginning of my trail we saw a bunch of my neighbor dogs hanging out.

The two little dogs I like, but those two German Shephards – they’re my arch enemies.

I don’t like them at all.

.

So you know what my person did?

The moon near Sugarloaf

I think the moon must have gotten to her.

Because she took me back home and locked me in dog jail.

Then she went right back out on the trails – my trails mind you, with those two German Shepherds and their people.

And they climbed to the top of that rock that the moon is next to.

I hope they used the trail around the back of it.

What am I saying?

For all I care, they could have climbed up the steepest part.

After all, they didn’t take me!

Not Even Ripe

Bongo looking away from the cameraI don’t believe it!

The prickly pear fruit isn’t even ripe yet and my person is taking pictures of it.

Prickly pear fruit

Prickly pear fruit and the sun

Hey person, don’t you know the color is much better when they’re ripe?

Let’s get moving!

The Bag

Bongo checking out a black bagMy trails have been full of strange things lately.

Yesterday it was that tarantula.

Today, I saw something hanging out next to my trails and I had to go over and investigate.

It turned out to be a big, black bag.

A shopping bag.

Now I’ve got a new mystery on my paws.

Where are the stores on my trails?

I mean, if you’re going to go shopping there has to be a store to go shopping at.

Do you think somebody knows something about my trails that I don’t know?

***

I’d better get on my Detective Dog hat.

Detective Dog

Who knows what kinds of stores I might find with a little investigation.

There might be treat stores.

Or toy stores.

I’d better dig further into this.

Maybe I’ll discover something if I check out this bag a little more thoroughly.

Notice I’m using some heavy duty detective words.

So what’s in this bag?

Mustard Seed Shopper bag

Mustard seed shopper?

You mean all you can use this bag for is to shop for mustard seeds?

What good are mustard seeds?

Oh yeah, isn’t there something about having faith like a mustard seed.

So maybe this bag is about having faith.

And I’ve got faith for sure.

I’ve got faith that I’m going to find those treat and toy stores.

I Don’t See It

Bongo looking for somethingPerson, I don’t know what you’re talking about.

I don’t see a thing.

Bongo looking the other way

Is it over there?

I think you’re making something up.

I don’t even smell anything interesting.

That’s got to mean you’re making it up.

Bongo with a tarantula on the ground near him

There is nothing that’s about to crawl on me – or bite me, or anything else.

You are hopeless, person.

Why do you make things like this up?

You probably can’t think of anything to put in my blog post so you’re making things up instead.

If you’d just take me on longer walks we’d have all kinds of adventures.

I’d have to do extra posts to get all the adventures in.

But no, you’ve got to make things up instead.

There’s nothing here.

Tarantula

Oh!

Stacked Up

Bongo looking back at a rock stack on the trailMost of my adventures happen in a day, or a walk, or maybe even in a minute.

But this adventure took a long time to unfold.

Almost a month.

Because every time I walked by this place something had changed.

For some reason people like to stack rocks on my trails.

Sometimes when I go for a walk I’ll find that a new stack has appeared.

And sometimes it’s gone again the next day.

.***

But one particular stack started out small.

Bongo in front of the rock stack

And then it grew.

And a few days later…

Bongo next to a stack of rocks

It grew again.

So I started getting excited to see what would happen each time I walked by.

How big would this stack get?

So the next time I walked by that way…

Bongo in front of a slightly shorter rock stack

Wait a minute.

There’s something wrong with this picture.

I’m not very good at counting, but aren’t there supposed to be more rocks on this stack, not less?

Who’s the Boss?

Two little dogs on the trailThey bark at me every time I pass their yard.

Which is every day – because their yard is right by my trails.

I guess they’re trying to tell me who’s boss.

Okay fine.

I didn’t want to come in your yard anyway.

You can be the boss of your yard.

.

.

***

But today something different happened.

I found them on my trails.

My trails, mind you.

And they still tried to tell they were the boss.

But I gave them a little different perspective.

It’s kind of hard to tell somebody you’re the boss when they’re towering over you.

Bongo meeting Woogie and Lolo

Okay guys, I guess I’ll let you come on my trails.

Just remember who the boss is.
