Where Are We Going?

16 Jan

Where are we Going?Today my people put my leash on and took me out to the 4Runner. They got it not too long ago and I’ve never been in it before. This is really strange.

So where were we going? The vet, or the dog hotel? I don’t see any suitcases, so I don’t think it’s the dog hotel. But my younger person never goes to the vet with us. I’m really confused.

It doesn’t take this long to get to the vet. Where are we going? We’ve been in the car a very long time.

It’s getting very bumpy now. Come on people. Where are we going?

What? Is this it? There’s a trail here. It’s not part of my usual trails. I didn’t know there were more trails. Wow! New smells and all! Where are we?

Okay people, you can look at the scenery. I’m checking out the smells. Sycamore Canyon, huh?

Come on, it’s downhill. Do I have to drag you, or are you going to start running?

Sycamore CanyonHey, there’s water here. This is fun!

Bongo in the Creek

No, I don’t want to get out. There’s more trail? I like the water.

A swimming hole!!!??? No way! You’ve never taken me to a swimming hole before.

This is the most fun day I’ve had ever! Can we come back here tomorrow?

    Looks like you had a lot of fun, Bongo! And what a beautiful landscape!

      Sweet Kitten, it was such great fun!

    That looks gorgeous, Bongo! And fun! We could try out Wonderbutt’s Hurley toy there. But you would probably have to retrieve it for him. Mrs. P.I.B. won’t go anywhere her feet can’t touch. And Wonderbutt is just barely buoyant.

    • Bongo

      January 16, 2012 at 1:32 pm

      I bet Wonderbutt and Mrs. P.I.B. would have fun there even if they didn’t go swimming. The trails full of dead leaves were great too – and I would be glad to retrieve Wonderbutt’s Hurley toy for him.

      • whatimeant2say

        January 17, 2012 at 3:38 pm

        OMG. Did you say DEAD LEAVES? We could probably just leave Wonderbutt there for a day and he would be a happy dog!

      • Bongo

        January 17, 2012 at 4:54 pm

        Wonderbutt would love it there. Parts of the trail were full of dead leaves.

    Beautiful pictures! I especially like the one of Bongo swimming with the red rocks behind him & the cave looking thing in the wall. Sycamore Canyon looks Awesome!

    • Bongo

      January 16, 2012 at 1:25 pm

      Thanks Jaxart4animals. My younger person had to go check out that cave before we left. Sycamore Canyon is pretty awesome.

      Rumpy, it was great. The only thing that would have made it better would be if you could have come along too.

    Hi Bongo!!!
    Wow! What a beautiful and cool place to walk! It is awesome and we love the picture of you waiting for the stick to be thrown! You are so lucky to have such a wonderful and beautiful place to walk!

    God Bless You and we are green with envy,

    The Collies 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 16, 2012 at 1:37 pm

      Collies, it was such a great place. I wish I could go there every day but it takes about an hour to drive to the trailhead from my house so I’ve really got to put on my charm to get my people to take me there again soon. God Bless

    We like swimming.

      Brown Dawgs, I had a great time swimming. I can’t wait to go back again. Too bad we live so far apart. I bet we’d all have fun swimming together.

    Swimming! Great cross training for you. What a lucky dog you are! (A new car – a new adventure? Any connection? Does it matter?) Run on, Bongo! ( but come when you are called)

    • Bongo

      January 16, 2012 at 2:02 pm

      Karen, I have some problems with that coming when I’m called thing – but if I have something to fetch I’ll bring it back so it can be thrown for me again.

    Have fun buddy,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 16, 2012 at 8:11 pm

      Snoopy, I’ll go in the car anytime – as long as it’s not to the dog hotel or the vet.

    You got beautiful eyes Bongo!
    Guess it was worth the suspense…at least it wasn’t a ride to the vet! Yay!! 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 16, 2012 at 8:52 pm

      Sunshine, you’re making me blush. It was definitely a wonderful surprise when I got out of the car and found a trail.

    Wow Bongo! That looked like a super fun day! Was the water cold?

    • Bongo

      January 16, 2012 at 8:53 pm

      Lindy, I was having so much fun I didn’t even notice the temperature of the water. I got really cold when I finally got out though.

    January 17, 2012 at 1:14 am

    Wow Bongo, a brand new trail and with a swimming hole. A beautiful, big swimming hole where you look like you are having lots of fun! Like Lexie & Mica you have a path/ trail with a nice place to swim. That is so great Bongo we are very happy for you 😉

    • Bongo

      January 17, 2012 at 11:45 am

      Tylers, it was so much fun to swim. Now I know how great Lexie and Mica have it with their swimming hole.

    Wow, Bongo, I really get energized by looking at you:) What a beautiful place and photo’s. I love your ‘co-pilot’ picture, you look so sweet.

    • Bongo

      January 17, 2012 at 11:46 am

      Angelswhisper, I could have gone forever going back in that swimming hole after the stick, but my people made me quit finally. I guess they don’t know how much energy I have.

    What a great time you must have had Bongo! And what a good swimmer you are! [your person has taken some really nice shots!] Question: was the water not COLD?!!!

    • Bongo

      January 17, 2012 at 11:50 am

      Thanks Marina. I really love swimming so I don’t care if the water’s cold or not. It was actually a pretty warm day. My people had light jackets on and they had to take them off once they started hiking.

    OMD! OMD! What a great scenery they are!!! Amazing! Gorgeous Canyon, beautiful water and YOU swimming Bongo! You can swim!!! Wow! Excellent! I have never tried to swim in my life so I’m not sure if I could. * blush* You seemed to be having lots of fun chasing the stick and swimming! I’m very jealous of you having those breathtaking nature around your place, Bongo!
    Thanks for these lovely pictures! 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 17, 2012 at 11:55 am

      Kevin, this was the first time my people took me swimming, but they figured I’d like it because I love playing in water so much. My person can’t turn on the garden hose without me getting in the spray. We do have lots of pretty places around here – I just wish the pretty ones with swimming holes were closer to my house.

    Oh, sweet Bongo what a treat! You look to be having so much fun swimming and fetching that stick from the water. That is a very pretty place and nice swimming hole. Maybe you will get to go there often. Hugs and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      January 17, 2012 at 11:56 am
