Hey person, what’s that stuff?
It’s a what? A gas can and a container for chain saw lubricant? By why would someone leave those on my trails?
You’re supposed to know that, person. Don’t you know everything?
Then that means I have another mystery to solve. There seem to be a lot of mysterious things happening on my trails.
I think it means somebody took a chain saw out on my trails. But why?
What if they’re planning to cut down trees and steal them? I’d better keep an eye out for people carrying logs. They’d be easy to spot because they’d have a chain saw too.
Or maybe they’re scared of wild animals and brought a chain saw with them to defend themselves. I’d better warn all those mountain lions and javelina to stay away from those guys. Don’t attack the guy with the chain saw.
Oh no – what if – what if somebody watched too many scary movies and now they’re lurking on my trails with a chainsaw? Stay behind me person. I’d better protect you just in case.
Hey person, look at this. All the gas leaked out of the gas can. Those people who think they’re going to cause all that trouble with the chainsaw are going to be disappointed. They can’t start it because it’s missing all its gas.

I have said it before: you are such a clever dog!
February 29, 2012 at 11:04 am
Thanks Sweet Kitten.
February 29, 2012 at 11:03 am
Uh oh! I hope nobody lights a match around there with all that gas that leaked out.
February 29, 2012 at 11:11 am
Jackie, yikes, I hadn’t thought of that. At least the rock it’s on won’t burn.
February 29, 2012 at 11:12 am
Another mystery for you to solve Bongo! Your life as a dogtective is getting very exciting. I think you should be the Deputy Dawg of those trails! Just be careful that leaky gas can be dangerous!
February 29, 2012 at 11:16 am
Bassetmomma, I like that name – Deputy Dawg. I promise I’ll be careful of that gas can.
February 29, 2012 at 11:19 am
Bongo, maybe the owner of those mystery items will see the determined dog detective’s tracks and know they are being watched – and hightail it out of there. Be cautious around odd smelling spots on the ground around those containers – you don’t want to get that stuff on your feet or nose!
February 29, 2012 at 11:36 am
Karen, I guess I was lucky that stuff didn’t run too far. It mostly stayed on that rock. And I think I did scare them out of there.
February 29, 2012 at 11:40 am
If I am having a bad, or “off” day, Bongo always makes me smile. Thank you! I want to hang out with you sometime…Peace…Jaz
February 29, 2012 at 11:44 am
Jaz, so glad I can make you smile. I hope today I made a good day better for you. We can hang out anytime.

Good detective work Bongo! Glad you are safe.

Thanks Bella and DiDi. Sometimes I have to be brave to keep my person and all my trail friends safe.
February 29, 2012 at 3:02 pm
Truly odd Bongo. Or shall we say Detective Bongo.
February 29, 2012 at 3:14 pm
Jennifer, strange thing happen on my trails sometimes.
February 29, 2012 at 3:17 pm
People are strange in general. -Duke
February 29, 2012 at 3:20 pm
Duke, sometimes I just can’t figure people out. If you come up with anything please let me know.
February 29, 2012 at 3:46 pm
A tree thief has his work cut out for him! Tough gig!
Love and licks,
February 29, 2012 at 3:48 pm
Cupcake, this is too funny. I was just commenting on your blog when I got a message that you had commented on mine. You’re right – that guy is going to have to work hard. I hope I catch him first though.
February 29, 2012 at 3:53 pm
This one is quite a conundrum, Bongo!
February 29, 2012 at 3:59 pm
Wonderbutt’s person, it is indeed.
February 29, 2012 at 6:10 pm
I hope you find those people and give them what for about the leaking gas! Gotta protect the environment of your trails. And good for you protecting your person. Good dog!
February 29, 2012 at 6:12 pm
Patricia, I’ll make sure I give those people what for when I find them.
For the Love of My Dogs
February 29, 2012 at 6:36 pm
Goodness, Bongo- SO much adventure for you lately! I hope you find these perps. With such strange items, you have your work cut out for you!
February 29, 2012 at 6:38 pm
Deanna, all kinds of strange things have been happening on my trails lately. It’s keeping me busy investigating. I hope I find some of the culprits.
February 29, 2012 at 6:48 pm
It seems there is always some mystery for you to solve Bongo. It sure must keep you busy.
February 29, 2012 at 6:52 pm
Brown Dawgs, my caseload is getting really heavy.
February 29, 2012 at 7:39 pm
Hey Bongo, Jet here. Did you attend the CSI classes @ Scooby Doo Academy? If so, I must have been in an alternate section. Please keep us posted on your detecting progress.
February 29, 2012 at 7:50 pm
Jet, I had to take the online course. I’m getting in my practical work now.
February 29, 2012 at 8:16 pm
Bongo, Me too… perhaps we can compare cases sometime!!!
February 29, 2012 at 10:50 pm
Jet, I would love that. Maybe we can even team up together on a case.
March 1, 2012 at 5:18 am
Bongo, now you’re talking… no case could withstand our combined talents!!!
March 1, 2012 at 10:04 am
Jet, we’d make an awesome team.
March 1, 2012 at 1:19 pm
I, Jet, stand ready and waiting… 🙂
February 29, 2012 at 11:03 pm
Bongo, is this a coincidence or is it connected to the crazy lumberjack that is loose in my neighborhood? Very strange!
February 29, 2012 at 11:05 pm
Bassa, I was wondering the same thing when I read your post. That lumberjack must really get around.
March 1, 2012 at 1:33 am
😀 Another great investigation, Bongo, you did a fine job on this one again, but, please, don’t look at that spooky movies anymore, you really scared me 😀 LOL
March 1, 2012 at 9:58 am
Thanks Angels Whisper, I’ll try to keep away from those spooky movies. My person won’t let me watch them anyway.
March 1, 2012 at 3:13 am
Surely no-one would mess with YOUR trees Bongo??
March 1, 2012 at 9:59 am
Flo, they’d better not mess with MY trees or I’ll really give them what for.
March 1, 2012 at 4:00 am
Hm, something fishy hear! I trust you’ll solve this one too …courageous, Bongo!
March 1, 2012 at 9:59 am
Marina, I’m working hard on it. I haven’t seen anybody carrying logs and a chain saw yet.
March 1, 2012 at 6:42 am
Hmmm…chain saw….gas can….very mysterious…..we have to call detective “Bongo”, detective “Poirot” and detective “Holms” to solve this mystery!!! 🙂
March 1, 2012 at 10:00 am
Kevin I think you’re right. This case is really hard. We need all the great detectives on it.
March 1, 2012 at 7:18 am
Ooh, so many mysteries! Glad you have your detective hat on, Bongo! 🙂
March 1, 2012 at 10:01 am
Thanks Katie. This case load is really keeping me busy. Got to get to the bottom of all these mysteries.
March 1, 2012 at 10:04 am
You can add Private Eye Doggie to your CV Bongo! Good work on this. 🙂
PS: Your human may want to take a look at this March contest:
I don’t think you’d be able to use this prize, but ya never know. 😉
March 1, 2012 at 10:08 am

March 2, 2012 at 7:21 am

March 2, 2012 at 11:07 am

March 2, 2012 at 4:41 pm
Great work Bongo!!!
You are one smart guy!

March 2, 2012 at 4:44 pm
Thanks Collies and Chuck. I do my best, although the cans disappeared before I found the culprit.
