What’s an Eclipse?

Bongo looking toward the sunThere was a partial solar eclipse around here.

My person says that eclipse showed up at other places too, but I only know what happens around my house.

Actually, I don’t always know what happens around my house.

Like, what is an eclipse anyway?

My person says it’s when the moon goes in front of the sun and it looks like somebody took a bite out of the sun.

I wonder if it tasted good.

My people put on special glasses so they could look at the eclipse.

But they didn’t give any of those glasses to me.

I don’t know why they wanted to look at a silly old eclipse anyway.

If somebody’s eating the sun and they’re not sharing any with me then they can have their eclipse and eat it too.

Bongo yawning

This is what I think of that eclipse.

I’ll find somebody else to give me treats.

Curly dry grass

These things are curly.

How strange can you get?

Bunches of curly things

What?

A curly forest?

Now that’s strange.

Too Many Houses

Bongo sniffing the ground under a juniper treeHmmm.

There’s something different about this tree.

Person, what do you mean, I’m looking in the wrong spot?

There’s what?

Oh.

.

Bird house in a juniper tree

There’s something different in this tree.

What is that thing?

It doesn’t look natural.

It’s a what?

Bird house on tree trunk

A bird house?

Well that doesn’t make sense.

First they kick their nest house out of the tree in my yard.

And then they go putting up a fancier house in a tree on my trails.

And it doesn’t look like anybody’s even living in that house.

Some lucky bird!

I wish I had more houses than I knew what to do with.

But all I have is a …

Bongo leaving his dog jail

…dog jail.

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.

A vehicle with a paw print and a climbing school sign.

Red vehicle with paw and climbing school sign

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.
