Little Black Bags

11 Dec

Bongo looking cool with his Detective Dog hat onDetective Dog here – and I’ve got another mystery to solve.

I’ve noticed something when I’ve been out on my trails. Little black bags.





Little black bag on top of a cairn

I see them everywhere. Like this one in plain sight.

Little black bag on the side of the trail

Look at this one. Somebody left it on the side of the trail.

Little black bag in the bushes

And this one’s hiding in the middle of some bushes. Well, it’s not really hiding. Maybe if it was summer they would have been able to conceal this here.

So now I have the evidence. Three little black bags in three days.

And the funny thing is these bags are always missing the next time I come by. Well, most of the time they’re missing. I guess sometimes somebody forgets one.

So now I’ve got to figure out what these little black bags are for. And why are they getting left on my trails?

Maybe they’re munchies in case somebody gets really hungry while they’re on my trails.

But that can’t be it. If they were munchies I’d be eating them and I don’t see anything attractive about these little black bags.

So I’ll have to look for some more clues.

What do they have in common – besides being little, and black, and bags?

I’ve got it. Flies! They all have flies buzzing around them. I wonder why.


Excuse me a minute – I’ve got to take a break.


Hey person, what are you doing with that little black bag? It looks a lot like the ones I’ve been investigating.

What are you doing, person? Don’t put that in the little black bag. I left that there for a reason.

Now you’re getting me upset and it’s messing up my whole investigation.

    …don’t know Bongo, maybe you should let those black bags be! There’s something dark and evil about them! Also, I was thinking… can’t a being dare take a break and someone messes up his investigation?! What can I say!

      Marina, sometimes my person just doesn’t think my investigations are very important. I may have to investigate her one of these days.

      Patreciau, you never know what you’re going to see on my trails. I guess that’s what makes my walks so exciting.

      Cupcake, I’m beginning to think the same thing. Maybe it’s a good thing that those bags don’t stay around for too long.

    Bongo, a word of advice from a picky eater – Don’t eat yellow snow and don’t sniff little black bags or green for that matter….and actually there are even scented ones meant to throw you off.

    Good work though!!

      Pet Sitter Diaries, my person was trying to warn me about that yellow snow, but since we don’t get snow here very often I’m still looking for the yellow stuff.

    Bongo, if you think about it you will have it figured out…it’s sort of an inside out cover-up

      Patricia, is that kind of like an inside job? Or maybe you have to go outside to do it.

      Benny & Lily, I wish I would have seen that guy. I could have interrogated him and come to the bottom of this mystery.

    Why would person do somefing to upset you mid investigation? *concerned eyes* unless she is a member of the black bag possey?

      Dalton, now I’m concerned. I might have to start an investigation on my person.

        I have a feeling that could take a while BOL

    Hmm, maybe Santa dropped them 🙂 I like the picture of you wearing your hat – very cool!

    • Bongo

      December 12, 2012 at 11:12 am

      Bassa, I’ve heard rumors that Santa has been seen in the area, so maybe he did drop those bags. I’m glad you like my hat. It’s my favorite.

    I think that your person seems to know what the little black bag is for, Bongo! You look pawsome with the detective hat! 🙂

      December 12, 2012 at 11:13 am

      Thanks Kevin. I really like this hat. I think it’s because my person gives me a treat after I pose for a picture when I’m wearing it.

    Did you smell them? You should really smell them. I have a feeling that is just the clue you need to solve this whole case 🙂

      Remy, there is a faint smell of something familiar, but it’s masked by the smell of plastic so I’m not sure.

    Bongo, black bags and flies and probably a nasty smell…. I’m not sure, but when it begins to move, I think I can come up with something 😀

    • Bongo

      Angels Whisper, I hope it doesn’t start moving. If it does I think I’ll turn the investigation over to someone else.

      Ginger, great idea. Sometimes I do it on a little hill and it rolls down. That’s always fun.
