Ghost Cars

01 Nov

Empty Trailhead Parking LotYesterday was Halloween and there was not one car in the parking lot by my trails. This was absolutely not possible on a day like this. It was sunny and warm – the perfect kind of day. So I’m sure there were cars parked there – the kind you can’t see.

Ghost cars.

I was a little nervous going through that parking lot – but nothing happened.

I expected to see a lot of people on my trails on a day like this. Even ghost cars have to be driven there by someone.

Person in white on the trail

But I only saw one person – and she was all white. I think she might have been a ghost.

With all this going on I thought maybe I’d see Ghost Dog, but no such luck. He must have been invisible too.

And then, to top it off – there weren’t even any litterbugs visible. Ghost litterbugs could be really dangerous.

Empty where the litter bugs hang out


Litter could appear out of nowhere. Right before my eyes. Yikes! I’d better get out of here!

Finally, after all those ghosts and invisible things, I found someone that I could see.

Quail on a fence

But that quail must have thought it was invisible, because it let us get really close to it. That’s just not normal.

      Marina, maybe I was invisible and I didn’t know it.

      Misaki, it did kind of spook me a little. I’m glad it’s not Halloween anymore. There were real cars in the parking lot today.

    Maybe the quail was as puzzled as you. Wonder where everybody was?

      Patricia, I think maybe they were all getting their costumes on because my person says she found lots of people in costume later in one part of town.

    Bongo maybe it was a Pigeon dressed as a Quail.

      Jennifer, maybe so. The pigeon was all dressed up for Halloween.

    Bongo that looks like a beautiful day to walk, maybe everyone thought it would be really busy and stayed home. The poor quail was waiting for the treats and didn’t get any 😦

      Lexie and Mica, at least that quail didn’t give me any tricks for not getting treats.

      Dalton, I’m sure glad the real cars and people – and dogs – showed up again the next day.

        I’m pleased to hear that – all very scary!!

    Bongo, maybe the ghost-person changed into a quail…

      Angels Whisper, that’s even spookier. Now I won’t know who is what and what is who.

      YouKai, yesterday I found my neighbor and neighbor dog on the trails and I know they’re real. Now I feel much better.

    Hmmmm….your trails have many mysteries…….You should call a famous detective……YES Bongo!!!! 🙂

      Kevin, Detective Dog was a little afraid to investigate that one. Fortunately real people and cars showed up again the next day.

    I guess everyone was so into getting ready for Halloween that they forgot to go walking – and on such a lovely day – tut, tut.

      Susan, my person found lots of people in costume in another part of town later in the day. So they must have been busy getting all decked out.

    That sounds spooky Bongo! Except the part about the quail. I mean, it is really weird, but I would also be very excited to get so close to a quail!

    • Bongo

      Remy, it was pretty cool getting that close to a quail. Usually the first we even know we’re near them is when they’re flying or running off in the opposite direction because they saw us first.

    I think everyone was at your house looking for treats Bongo. I had to bark at a lot of kids ringing my doorbell here & they got treats. So I figured I’d bark for treats for me but that didn’t work for very long….Lola

      Lola, nobody comes to my house anymore. All the kids go uptown where the tourist shops are because all the shops hand out candy. My person says it’s like a big party. I don’t know why she doesn’t take me.

    Strange days make strange bedfellows..or hike fellows. That Quail looked a little lonely…maybe it was worried about ghosts, too?

    • Bongo

      November 2, 2012 at 9:45 pm

      Karen, maybe that’s why the quail didn’t fly off. It was more scared of ghosts back there than it was of me.

    I’ll bet there were squirrels out there, Bongo. They weren’t invisible. The cheeky things never are. Not even on Halloween. Nice treat to spot a quail. It’s a pretty one.

    • Bongo

      November 2, 2012 at 10:13 pm

      Nanina, at least those squirrels weren’t hanging around in the trees being pesky. We got lucky with the quail. We see lots of them, but usually the first we know they’re around is when they hear us and start heading the opposite direction.

    Hey Bongo, Jet here.

    Dude, you’re a laugh riot… some K9s been watching or reading too many spooky thingies!!!

    • Bongo

      November 3, 2012 at 12:53 pm

      Hey Jet, I guess I’d better choose some different reading material. Spooky things have been coming into my yard at night now too though. My person says it’s javelinas, but I know different.

    Perhaps if you yelled boo the ghosts would’ve ran away? 🙂

    • Bongo

      November 10, 2012 at 12:24 pm

      Collies, I probably should have tried that. I don’t think the ghosts around here are very brave.
