Trash Trooper

12 Oct

Bongo Looking for CluesToday my person grabbed some plastic bags as we headed out to my trails. Not those skimpy little doggie bags. These were grocery bags.

I wasn’t sure what she was thinking, and since she had her hands full I made sure I got tangled in my leash a lot.

It wasn’t until we got nearly to the end of our walk that I realized what she was doing with those bags. And it was time for me to get to work. I hope she brought my Detective Dog hat along – because somebody has been hanging out in my wash and leaving their litter behind.

Bongo Investigating

Time for me to start investigating.

Trash in the Bushes

I even found trash way in the bushes.

Bongo Sniffing a Bush

I bet this bush will talk.

While I was busy investigating my person picked the trash up. I was ready to head home to sort out the clues.

Bongo not willing to carry trash bag

What do you mean, I’m supposed to carry this?

Bongo Looking Around for Someone Else

But I’m Detective Dog. I’ve got clues to sort out. There must be someone else.

    Awesome job – a nice trail adventure and keeping the place beautiful for everyone else. We need more teams like you guys out there!

      Thanks Will and Eko. Usually people are pretty good about not leaving litter on my trails – but every once in awhile I find some trail trash.

    Bongo doesn’t look happy about carrying that bag! 🙂 Very cool of you to pick up after others.

      Thanks Dogdazed. I made my person carry the bag.

    My obedience teacher said every dog needs a job and a boss. I guess we know what/who yours are!

    Errrrggh, trash bums still? Guess they’ll never stop but it’s great that you & your person take the time to pick it up. Do you get to go to the dump (okay we call it the dump although I guess it’s technically the ‘transfer station’). I love the dump because my buddy Pete gives me a huge cookie every Saturday…Lola (and tomorrow’s dump day!)

    • Bongo

      Lola, I wish I could go to a dump like that. The big truck comes to our house once a week and takes our trash away. My person threw most of the trash in the garbage can at the trail head though. She kept the cans out and put those in our recycling bin. I wonder if the person in our garbage truck has cookies. I’ll have to go out and check next time he comes.

        FedEx comes to our house & he brings me a cookie every time. I love Mr. FexEx…Mr. UPS, not so much, he grumpy & refuses to leave packages if I’m outside. I’ll bet if you sit by the cans & give them “the eyes” you could convince that that it’s a good idea to keep cookies in the truck – try it Bongo…Lola

        Lola, Mr. Fed Ex and Mr. UPS just ring the doorbell and run at my house. Maybe that’s because I bark when I hear them coming. Maybe I should hold my barking, but I’ve got to do my job protecting my house and people from strangers. The Postal lady gives me loves when she comes to the door because she and my person know each other. She doesn’t come to the door very often though.

    What slobs to throw trash out in such a beautiful area… sigh…..

    • Bongo

      October 14, 2012 at 9:10 pm

      Collies, they really are slobs. Next time I see them hanging out there I’m going to give them what for.

    I think it is wonderful that you and your person are helping to keep your trails clear of rubbish…it is very naughty people who dump things where they should not be put…
    If you ever find out who it was Bongo , you have my full support to bite them! (not too hard)

    • Bongo

      October 14, 2012 at 9:17 pm

      Patreciau, I’ve seen people hanging out in that place where the trash was. If I see them again I’ll for sure give them what for.

    Three cheers for your person’s efforts to keep the trail clean and shame on the people who have no respect for their environment.

    • Bongo

      October 14, 2012 at 9:18 pm

      Thanks Bassa. I’m keeping an eye out for those people so I can give them what for.

    You are a team remember?! You investigate, your person picks up [cleaning is the dirty job!] and well, you carry …to the nearest trash can [hopefully not too far!]
    I have heard that kings are not supposed to do that, but it’s better to go undercover [less responsibilities!]! 🙂

    • Bongo

      October 14, 2012 at 9:20 pm

      Marina, I like that part about my person doing the dirty job. At least there was a trash can at the trail head and it wasn’t very far away.

      Thanks so much Misaki. I’m drooling at the thought of those cupcakes.

    I think it’s a really good idea from your person to keep your tracks clean from trash! 🙂

      October 14, 2012 at 9:38 pm

      Dianda, I agree. Trails full of trash are no fun.

    What you and your person are doing is great for keeping the nature and the environment beautiful!!! How wonderful! I hope you find those naughty humans who left the rubbish soon and give them what for!

    • Bongo

      October 14, 2012 at 9:40 pm

      Kevin, I’m keeping an eye out for those people. So far I haven’t seen them back – maybe it’s better if they stay away, but I sure would like to give them what for.

    Did you talk her out of having you carry the bag sweet Bongo? hugs and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      October 14, 2012 at 9:41 pm

      Mumsy, it was easy. I didn’t pick it up and my person had to. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    How yucky that peoples are leaving their trash along your route. 😦 I hope it doesn’t end up like my route – my peoples would need an entire dumpster to clean it up. It’s REALLY bad. Why I peoples so messy?

    • Bongo

      October 14, 2012 at 9:43 pm

      Toby, most people on my trails are very good and there is hardly ever any trash on them. But the people who left the trash weren’t there to hike or walk their dogs – they were hanging out. I hope I find them hanging out again so I can give them what for.

    How nice of your Mom to bring a bag and pick up the trash on the trails. The people walking on your trails should pick up their own trash. But I’m not sure you should have to carry it back Bongo!!

    • Bongo

      October 14, 2012 at 9:56 pm

      Lexie and Mica, most people on my trails do pick up their own trash. I’m waiting to find these people so I can give them what for.

    It’s a good job your person was there to clean up after those litter bugs!! I don’t get why people drop litter?!!!

    • Bongo

      October 15, 2012 at 3:04 pm

      Dalton, I guess those people think they own the trails. What they don’t realize is that they’re my trails.

      • Dalton

        October 16, 2012 at 12:45 am

        You will have to put up signs!!

      • Bongo

        October 16, 2012 at 9:16 am

        Dalton, I think I’ll get to work on those right now.

        Here something to munch on while you work!!

        Dalton, what a drag. I tried to click on your link and I couldn’t get through. Your server must be down or something. My person put a reminder on her computer so she’ll remember to try the link for me later.

    I bet those litter bugs wouldn’t like someone leaving trash in their back yard, you are very clever to discover all those clues and I hope you get it all figured out Bongo 🙂

    • Bongo

      October 15, 2012 at 7:00 pm

      Misty Shores, those litter bugs must not like cleaning up after themselves and that’s why they didn’t stay in their own back yard.

    Bongo, are you growling on the pic near the trashbag, just to make clear that you won’t carry the bag 😀

    • Bongo

      October 17, 2012 at 8:57 am

      Angels Whisper, actually I was chewing on a piece of weed and my person clicked at just the right time. She thought it was a good picture to put in there because it looked like I was growling. But I didn’t want to carry that bag.
