Woo hoo! It was an awesome day on my trails today. The weather was perfect and the parking lot full – which meant I had a chance to meet lots of people and dogs. We headed out on the trails and met a whole lot of people coming back the other way, but no dogs. I like people, but I really like meeting dogs on my trails, so I started getting a little disappointed thinking this might be a no dog day.
Well, I was wrong – so wrong. We headed a little further along the trails and guess who showed up to greet me. You’ll never guess. The best dog ever! Lucy. My girlfriend – at least I want her to be my girlfriend. And we got to play. That is the most fun a dog can have. Playing with his girlfriend – except maybe for swimming, and eating, and catching Frisbees. Well, you know what I mean. I had fun.
Lucy headed on down the trails and I started feeling disappointed, but I hardly had a chance to feel that way because two more dogs came running to greet me. And my person knows their people, so now I have two new friends.
I would have made more friends but the other dogs were on leashes and our people wouldn’t let us get close. My person had to give directions to one person who had a dog. I could give directions to that person too. Just let your dog’s leash loose and follow along.

I am so happy you saw Lucy again!
March 9, 2012 at 11:05 am
Sweet Kitten, I don’t get to see Lucy very often, but it sure is fun when I do.
March 9, 2012 at 11:34 am
Aww, man you are so lucky Bongo. You got an adventure & I didn’t cause Mom’s got to stay and wait for some package or something which I don’t get cause I get packages for her all the time… well sometimes the box gets a little shredded but how else are you gonna find out what’s inside? So I don’t get an adventure today but one time on my trail that’s got a pond I scored a whole pizza box! It even had cheese all melted on the bottom. Mom says pigs left it but I didn’t smell any pigs around. Whoooeee… you can smell if pigs have been around. I wish we could go on an adventure Your blog friend, Lola.

Lola, it would be great to go on an adventure with you. Finding a pizza box with cheese in it sounds awesome. I’ve found some interesting things on my trails but never anything like that.

Its Great meeting friends on your trails….Hope you had a fun time…:-)…Woof Woof
March 9, 2012 at 1:41 pm
Penny, I always have a great time on my trails – especially if my friends are around.
March 9, 2012 at 1:33 pm
I always like to meet dogs when I’m walking outside too.
March 9, 2012 at 1:44 pm
Dianda, I wish I could meet you on my trails.
March 9, 2012 at 1:45 pm
I’d bring you a big bone. 8)
March 9, 2012 at 1:48 pm
Woo woo! I love bones.
March 9, 2012 at 2:27 pm
Sounds like a great trail walking day!
March 9, 2012 at 3:06 pm
Jen, all days on the trail are good, but this one was especially good.

It sure sounds like you had a great time! I haven’t met a single dog since we arrived at the house two days ago. Sometimes me and the neighbor dogs talk from each side of our wall, but we haven’t met yet. I miss meeting new and old friends on walks. We’re heading out for a walk now, so as always I am optimistic and hopeful of meeting friends 🙂
March 9, 2012 at 3:07 pm
Fenris, I sure hope you get to meet some new friends.
March 9, 2012 at 3:40 pm
Good advice, Bongo. Cowboys here say “If your horse doesn’t want to go that way, then you shouldn’t either!” Glad you had a great day! Things always go better with friends
March 9, 2012 at 4:09 pm
Karen, I guess both dogs and horses make good guides.
For the Love of My Dogs
March 9, 2012 at 4:19 pm
Awww Lucy!! Sounds like another fun day on the trails 🙂 We are glad you met new friends too– sounds like you have many more fun trail hikes ahead!
March 9, 2012 at 7:08 pm
Deanna, I always look forward to my trail hikes. It’s a new adventure every time I go.
March 9, 2012 at 5:06 pm
Today, I was feeling a little blue. But, I must say this blog makes me so very happy when I read it. Thank You so much for that Bongo & Bongo’s Person! I am so glad the trails had other pupperoni’s for you to see and sniff and have fun with!
March 9, 2012 at 7:09 pm
Viciously Sweet, we’re so glad we can brighten your day.
March 9, 2012 at 5:52 pm
What a great walk!!! You have a beautiful girlfriend. 🙂 Great post Bongo!
the collies and chuck 🙂
March 9, 2012 at 7:09 pm
Thanks Collies and Chuck. I had a great time on my walk.
March 9, 2012 at 6:59 pm
Bongo and Lucy sittin’ in a tree
Hmm. Guess I should change that.
Bongo and Lucy meetin’ on the trails
Rubbing noses and waggin’ their tails…
March 9, 2012 at 7:10 pm
Wonderbutt’s person, you are such a good poet. Now I’m blushing.
March 9, 2012 at 10:30 pm
Hey Bongo, Jet here. I’m so glad you shared hiking time with buddies. Lucy sounds like a dream, did you get her number? You deserve happy hikes everyday! (Oh, Mom agrees with me btw!)
March 9, 2012 at 10:47 pm
Jet, Lucy is a dream but she says she doesn’t have a phone so I just have to wait until we’re on the trails at the same time. Oh, the life of a dog.
March 10, 2012 at 1:17 am
It amazes me that one Bongo dog going for one walk down the trails can write such a great post . You are really such a clever boy Bongo
March 10, 2012 at 10:39 am
Thanks Patreciau. I guess my trails are so great that it’s easy to write a post about them.
March 10, 2012 at 1:35 am
Bongo, you’re the best dog teacher ever, you know exactly what a dog needs and especially what you need 😉 Lucy is gorgeous 🙂 Btw Great poem of your friend Wonderbutt lol
March 10, 2012 at 10:43 am
Thanks Angel’s Whisper, I do my best, and I do have great fun with Lucy. And I agree, that was a pretty good poem from my buddy Wonderbutt.
March 10, 2012 at 1:51 am
How nice that you got to see Lucy. Looks like your walk turned out great and you met lots of other dogs!
March 10, 2012 at 10:43 am
Bassetmomma, it really was a wonderful walk. Especially with Lucy. She’s the best.
March 10, 2012 at 4:00 am
Good morning Bongo. I was cruising the Saturday Blog Hop and found you. I’m looking forward to reading about your adventures!
March 10, 2012 at 10:45 am
Reba, thanks for stopping by. I’m glad you found me on the Blog Hop.
March 10, 2012 at 5:24 am
Sure sounds like a lot of fun. Imagine that you just happened to run into your gf. 😉
March 10, 2012 at 10:47 am
Brown Dawgs, it was so great running into Lucy. She’s out on my trails fairly often, so we meet up every few days usually.
March 10, 2012 at 5:28 am
Oh Bongo, you’re Flo’s kind of dog… she loves to meet and play with everyone too. You’re a real dog’s dog. 🙂
March 10, 2012 at 10:48 am
Flo, it would be so great to go out on the trails with you. Too bad we live half a world away from each other.

That looks like a great day
Love and licks, Winnie
March 10, 2012 at 10:48 am
Winnie, it was a really great day. Love and licks to you too.
March 10, 2012 at 6:40 am
Wow! You have a girlfriend Bongo! Cool! and I’m glad that you met two ther dogs on your trail! Were they nice, too?
March 10, 2012 at 10:50 am
Kevin, I’m not sure if Lucy thinks I’m her boyfriend, but we sure have fun playing together when we meet. Those other dogs were nice too. My person doesn’t always like me to meet other dogs because she says sometimes I’m not very friendly, but I got along with those dogs just fine.
March 10, 2012 at 7:28 am
Fun is the name of the game, Bongo, and you sure had it! And, it makes it even more special when your girlfriend’s there.
March 10, 2012 at 10:51 am
Sage, it was a very fun time on my trails – especially seeing my girlfriend.
March 10, 2012 at 10:59 am
Great story, Bongo! Glad you met some other dogs on your trail. I bet you’re great at giving directions.
March 10, 2012 at 11:03 am
Thanks Monica. It’s always fun to meet other dogs and help out lost people.
March 10, 2012 at 10:17 pm
Bongo what a great day! Beautiful weather, a trail walk, meeting people and new friends and getting to see your “girlfriend”. If there were a swim it would have been perfect, but we have to save something for another day.We’ll have a swim on another walk.
March 11, 2012 at 4:48 pm
Tylers, I sure wish my trails had a swimming hole, but except for that they’re perfect – especially when I find my friends on them.
March 12, 2012 at 4:34 am
Oh, I’m so glad you got to see Lucy again and meet so more friends!
March 12, 2012 at 5:08 pm
Marina, it’s always a great day when I get to see Lucy.
March 12, 2012 at 3:24 pm
I’m glad you had a great walk Bongo! 🙂
March 12, 2012 at 5:27 pm
Thanks Sunshine. It was great fun.
