Rock Pile Wars

Bongo looking at new rock piles on the trailThey’re at it again.

More rock piles on my trails.

Right near the part of my trail that everybody passes by.

They should leave the rock piles on the part of my trails where hardly anybody goes.

Those rock piles keep multiplying.

But here there are rock pile wars.

Somebody puts them up – somebody takes them down.

Rock piles don’t last long here.

.

But it looks like someone worked hard to make sure these rock piles stay.

That one pile has a double column of rocks.

Bongo checking out the rock piles

I’m getting a bad feeling about these rocks.

I rarely growl, but these rocks deserve one.

Just a low, quiet growl – enough to put those rocks in their place.

Bongo slinking away from the rock piles

And now I’m outta here.

Carefully, so those rock piles don’t get suspicious.

***

Guess what!

I went by that spot again the next day and the rock piles were gone.

Up again – down again.

Rock pile wars.

Gone with the Century

Bongo and a fallen down century plantHmmm. What’s this?

It looks like it’s from another century.

Last year’s century.

I know last year was only a year, but it had centuries in it too.

How do I know?

Because here’s one of them right here.

.

.

Bongo looking at the fallen down century plant

This century plant grew up right next to my trail last year.

And now it’s gone. Splat!

Bongo walking away from the century plant

I guess that’s the end of the centuries on my trails.

I’ll have to take it year by year now.

One of these big things only shows up once in a hundred years.

I don’t think I’ll be around for the next one.

***

Hey, what’s this smell?

Bongo sniffing near a new century plant

It smells like that century plant.

Bongo walking away from the century plant

Naw. There’s not a chance in a hundred that another century plant would show up on my trails.

Probably a good thing.

My person takes too many pictures of them.

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 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.

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?

Stalked

Bongo next to a manzanita bush full of blossomsThere’s definitely been some mischief going on on my trails today.

I’ve been stalked!

I know it.

I’m not sure why though.

Maybe because the stalker knows that these are my trails.

Or maybe the stalker wants to be there when I finally catch the aliens who have been piling up rocks on my trails.

Or maybe…

I don’t know why.

.

So I guess I’ll just tell you what happened.

Hummingbird in flight

This hummingbird has been stalking me.

Everywhere I went on my trails today, there it was.

Right now it’s flying to its next perch so it can keep an eye on me.

Hummingbird in a tree with an arrow pointing to it

See, there it is.

Looking down at me from that tree.

Hummingbird on a branch

And there it is again.

That bird is everywhere!

My person seems to think there are a lot of hummingbirds out today, but she’s wrong.

There’s only one.

And it’s stalking me.

And she only thinks she saw two hummingbirds at the same time.

Those birds are faster than a speeding bullet.

That bird tricked her into thinking there were two.

But I just thought of something.

If that bird follows me home and starts tapping at my window it’s going to be in trouble.

I’m still living with three cats.

I knew cats were good for something.

Butterflies

Orange spotted butterflyI’ve been worried about the flowers that are starting to show up on my trails, because they make my person spend too much time with her camera.

But now I’ve discovered I’ve got something else to worry about.

Butterflies.

At least the flowers stay in one spot.

But those butterflies are moving all over the place.

So my person starts chasing them with her camera.

And since she’s stuck to my leash I end up having to follow wherever she goes.

What kind of a dog wants to follow butterflies?

Oh no, here we go.

Here comes another one.

White butterfly on white flowers

I was hoping my person would just go for the flowers…

What am I saying?

Now I’m wanting my person to take flower pictures?

It’s not as bad as chasing butterflies – but maybe I should just hide her camera.

Then I wouldn’t have to worry about those pictures at all.

***

Oh.

She wouldn’t be able to take any pictures of me then.

That wouldn’t be good.

I’d be stuck with all the old pictures of me and I’d never be able to get any new ones.

Oh well.

I guess I’m going to have to put up with it.

Bongo with a butterfly on his nose

If you can’t beat ‘em – join ‘em.

And the Clues Lead to…

Bongo and a rock pileI was walking along the wash on my trails today, like I do almost every day – when I saw it.

Rock piles have been showing up everywhere and here was yet another one.

One of these days every rock on my trails will be part of a pile.

This might cause a serious problem.

If one of those rock piles falls over, a lizard might get smashed.

Or a rabbit.

Or maybe even a dog!

I decided I’d better get on my Detective Dog hat…

.

.

Bongo looking cool with his Detective Dog hat on

And look for clues.

And I found them.

Clues, that is.

I discovered that I’d better watch my step…

An eye drawn on a rock

Because someone is keeping an eye on me.

And they obviously know my secret identity.

I found an S on my trails the other day…

S's drawn on a rock

And now here are more.

They obviously know that I’m Super Dog.

But they also know…

A star and crescent moon drawn on a rock

That I’m the star of the show.

***

And here it is.

The final clue.

I know everybody’s been waiting anxiously to find out who’s been building all these rock piles.

Strange animal face drawn on a rock

Now all I have to do is find this culprit.

Too Many Piles

Bongo next to a pile of rocks in a washI don’t believe it!

Someone ran out of room in their rock pile spot and now they’re even building rock piles in my wash.

This is a silly place to build rock piles.

Don’t they know this is a wash?

As soon as we get a good rain the water will come roaring down here and take that rock pile away.

Oh, wait.

When was the last time we had rain here?

That rock pile might be safe after all.

So anyway, since that rock pile in the wash might wash away I’m going to leave it alone.

And invade the rock pile spot instead.

Bongo among many piles of rocks

Every time I walk by here there are more piles of rocks.

They’re running out of room to even put more piles.

So I think I’ll do them a little favor.

So they have a chance to do some more piling…

Bongo knocked over a few rocks

I think I’ll knock a few of these rocks to the ground.

“S” Stands for…

An S shape in rockCheck this out.

There’s an S on my trails.

That must be for me.

I know my name starts with a B.

Oh, wait.

If that S is there then that means somebody knows my secret identity.

My trails must know it for sure.

I didn’t think my trails knew that about me.

I guess there’s no keeping it quiet anymore.

I’m mild mannered Bongo by day…

.

Super Dog

Super Dog by night!

It’s Super Dog to the rescue!

***

Oh oh.

I think I messed up.

I was tricked into giving away my secret.

That S wasn’t for me at all.

Because look at this.

A century plant just starting out

It’s the new beginnings of the first Sentury plant this year.

That S must be there to announce the birth of this plant.

***

It is too there for this plant.

What do you mean, it’s a See?

See starts with S.

So what’s the deal?

It’s a Century Plant with a C?

Then somebody’s all confused.

Because they wrote the wrong letter in that rock.

***

Maybe Super Dog should go C about this.

There might be a Kat involved.
