Follow the Leader

Bongo's profileI must really be a leader.

Because today my blog has 1000 followers.

One thousand dogs, and people – and cats – and a few other animals following me.

Of course, some of them say they’re following me but they’re not.

Well, they sort of are.

But if they were really following me wouldn’t I have at least one thousand people and animals reading my posts every day?

And I don’t.

I guess a follower or two dropped off somewhere along the wayside.

.

***

Hey, I know a way to get all those followers following me.

I’ll give a guided tour of my trails.

Bongo on the trail

And invite all of my followers to come along.

I’m sure they’ll all show up for that.

Wouldn’t that be cool?

One thousand people and animals all following along on my trails.

I’m setting the date for tomorrow.

So come on over and get in line.

The first one here gets to step in right behind me.

And I’ll show you what it’s like to follow the leader.

Left Behind

Bongo wanting out of dog jailThis is bad.

This is really bad.

My people have been so full of mischief that I can’t even wait until Monday Mischief to post it.

I’ve got to get it off my chest now.

I’ve got to let you feel sorry for me know all the horrible things they’ve been up to.

For two days in a row my people locked me in dog jail and went for a walk without me.

And I didn’t get a walk at all.

Something about me maybe wrecking my person’s good camera.

I would not wreck her camera – at least as long as she only used it to take pictures of me.

But what’s worse is all the things my people did.

Without me.

.

Yesterday they went to the creek.

Cathedral Rock - Sedona, AZ

And I didn’t even get to go swimming.

Pomeranian swimming in Oak Creek

But this dog did.

Then today a really horrible thing happened.

My people went on my trails to take pictures of the sunset.

Without me.

And while they were on their way to that sunset…

Bongo's friend Lucy

They saw my girlfriend Lucy.

She probably thinks I’m avoiding her on purpose now.

Next time I’m locking my people in dog jail.

What Happens in the Mud

Bongo's paws next to some much larger paw prints

Somebody really big showed up on my trails when they were muddy.

I’m sure glad I missed out on seeing that somebody.

That could be really scary.

It taught me something though.

Not to take my person for walks on my trails when the mud is out.

Because whoever this is with the big paws likes to play in the mud.

I might get stuck in the mud and be mistaken for a new toy.

Yup, I think I’ll avoid my trails when the mud comes out.

Besides, I won’t get yelled at when I come back in the house.

A New Garden

Sunflowers amid a collection of rocksAs I walked along on my trails minding my own business I noticed something new.

It was in a little area where people sometimes hang out.

The place where people stack rocks up into high piles.

Only I guess they got tired of stacking rocks.

Now they’ve decided to plant a garden.

.

.

.

.

I decided to check it out.

Bongo behind the sunflowers

Those sunflowers are tall and easy to see.

But maybe there’s more garden around here.

Maybe someone planted some vegetables.

Some really tasty vegetables.

I like vegetables.

I’m drooling just thinking about it.

***

Wait. This isn’t fair.

It’s torture to start drooling and find nothing tasty to satisfy that drool.

Bongo walking away from the flowers

There’s nothing here person.

Let’s go home.

I know you’ve got vegetables treats for me there.

Secret Admirer

Bongo and a heart shaped from rocksI’m minding my own business, walking on my trails when what should appear, but a heart.

Not just any old heart.

Someone made this heart.

And the logical conclusion is that it was one of my girlfriends.

She must be around here somewhere waiting for me.

She probably wanted to surprise me with this heart first.

And then she’ll give me a bigger surprise by jumping out of the bushes.

Okay, that should happen anytime now.

I’m waiting.

I don’t even hear a bush rattling.

Come on! I know you’re out there somewhere.

Come out and tell me you love me.

***

It sure is quiet around here.

Bongo near the rock heart and looking around

Do you think she laid her heart down and left?

Back Off

Rain cloud over Thunder MountainHey person, we can’t go on a walk.

Look at that. There’s rain on its way.

It’s going to engulf us any minute now.

And you know what the rain brings with it.

.

.

.

Thunder!!!

Bongo between the trees and the rain

Maybe these trees will protect me from the rain.

Look, I can hardly see it now.

But I still think we need to go back.

I’m not sure if these trees are trustworthy.

Bongo in front of cactus with his leash taut

And now the clouds are closing in from the other direction too.

Okay, that’s it person.

I’m not going anywhere.

What, you don’t believe me?

You don’t think I’m serious?

Well check this out.

I’m so serious…

Bongo about to back into cactus

…that I’d rather back into this cactus –

than go anywhere near that thunder.

Just try to get me to move.

Who Will Win?

Bongo on the trail looking upI was walking along my trails minding my own business when I looked up.

And in a tree were two birds.

.

.

.

.

.

I wonder what would happen if one of them decided to pull mischief on the other.

Hummingbird and hawk in a tree

Which one would win?

Hawk

Would it be the hawk?

Definitely the largest and most powerful of the two.

A tried and true hunter.

Would the hawk win?

Or would it be…

Hummingbird in a tree

…the hummingbird?

I’m going for the hummingbird.

That hummingbird already has it’s pointy beak aimed directly at the hawk.

One perfectly aimed dive bomb and that hawk will never know what hit him.

I’m voting for the little guy.

***

Unless the little guy turns out to be…

Gizmo on his back on the couch

…a cat.
