Do Not Cross

20 Sep

Bongo behind a strip of Caution TapeWhat’s this thing here?

It’s what?

It’s “Do not Cross” tape?

I never heard of that. You’re making it up, person. Since when am I not supposed to go somewhere on my trails?

I know we never go here, but today this is where I want to go.

I know that “Do not Cross” tape is in the way. But look, it’s not very long. I can take you around it. Come on, let’s go.

Who hangs out up there?

The coyotes? Well of course they do. I’m tracking them now. That’s why I want to go this way. Come on, let’s go!

Person, you are taking this “Do not Cross” tape thing far too seriously. If you don’t want to go then let go of my leash so I can go. I’m sure you can find your way home on your own.

Okay fine. I’ll go back with you. I certainly wouldn’t want you to get lost. Without you I’d have no way of getting my food out of the garage.

Tomorrow I’m hanging that “Do not Cross” tape somewhere else.

    You think it’s for protection? It seems torn to me. I think tha if you go back there tomorrow it’ll be gone! BTW wise choice going back with your person!!!!!

      Marina, I think my person was trying to trick me with that tape so I wouldn’t go into coyote territory. She was lucky I was ready for dinner – so I let her take me home.

    Not the shiny yellow plastic strips! As bad as those orange cone thingies…which are probably hats that fell off and are waiting to be picked up. But both are annoying when in the way

      Karen, there’s one of those orange hat thingies that’s been in the parking lot of my trails for a long time. I bet it lost this shiny yellow plastic strip. I’ll have to reunite them.

    Show that yellow tape who’s boss, B! Pick it up, shake it around, eat it if you have to.

    Love and licks,

      Good idea Cupcake. I could get rid of that thing in one swallow.

    Oh Bongo, i don’t think you and the coyotes would be buddies!

    • Bongo

      September 20, 2012 at 10:01 pm

      Jen, if I can’t be buddies I’ve got to go give those coyotes what for. First I have to convince my person that that’s what I’m doing though. She doesn’t seem to believe me.

    It doesn’t apply to us Bongo – we can’t read 🙂

      Bassa, you’re so right. I’m heading past that tape right now.

    when you find out what you ‘do not cross’ will you tell me..what a strange thing to find on yout trail

    • Bongo

      Patreciau, my person is trying to tell me that I’m not supposed to cross over into coyote territory, but there are houses nearby and I think it blew in from one of them.

    Hmmmm…I wonder who put the yellow tape on your trail….You think Coyote did? hmmm….could be Coyote, but it’s your trail after all Bongo, so you can do whatever you want to! *whispers* but you should listen to what your person tells you as she so much cares of you. 🙂

      Kevin, I don’t think any of the coyotes put that tape there because they want me to come play with them. I think it blew there from somewhere else and my person is using it as an excuse to keep me from going into coyote territory.

    Good thinking to follow your persons, Bongo…or you may have to find your food not in the garage but in the garbage. Food for thought…hehe:)

    • Bongo

      September 22, 2012 at 2:22 pm

      Sunshine, garbage is good. But I guess it would be harder to get enough food, so I’d better wait for my person to get mine out of the garage.

    I think you’ve stumbled upon a crime scene. Careful not to contaminate it.

      Diane and Lola, that sounds like a mystery to me. I’d better get my Detective Dog hat on and try to solve it.

    I’m glad you opted to go with your person so you could provide protection!

    • Bongo

      September 22, 2012 at 10:24 pm

      Misty Shores, I’m always having to look out for my person. I guess it’s a good thing that I do.

    Bongo, are you sure you’re not allowed to cross that line? Maybe it was meant for other creatures 🙂

    • Bongo

      September 24, 2012 at 3:16 pm

      Angels Whisper, that’s what I thought – that it didn’t mean me at all. But my person wouldn’t let loose on my leash. Maybe it was my person who wasn’t supposed to cross.

    Ginger says bring all the friends you have for you will need them against those coyotes… they are bad….

    • Bongo

      September 24, 2012 at 4:57 pm

      Ginger, that’s a good idea. I’ll round up all my neighborhood dog friends and trail dog friends and we’ll go after those stinkin’ coyotes.
