Something is strange here. There are no cars in the parking lot of my trails. This worries me. Yesterday there was a travelling Trails sign here in the parking lot and it’s gone. I think my fears have come true. Everybody followed that sign and now they’re walking on different trails. There’s nobody left here to give me loves. This is terrible!
Well, I’m going to go out on my trails anyway – sign or no sign. After all, they’re still my trails even if nobody else is on them.
At least, I think they’re my trails. Everything looks different today.
What happened to all the dust on my trails? It’s not here anymore. It’s vanished.
And look at this! My trails are leaking water. I don’t remember seeing water on my trails. Where’s all this water coming from? Is somebody crying? They must be very sad.
Look at this big wet spot – right in the middle of my trail. It’s cold too. Where did this come from? I don’t think this is my trail at all. Did my trails leave with that travelling sign? What am I going to do without my trails?
There’s something else missing. Where’s the blue sky? My sky is always blue. What happened to it?
Is there something strange about Thunder Mountain? Look, the color is missing on top. It looks like someone took a giant eraser and erased the color. Now it’s all white up there.
What am I going to do? What if that eraser comes down and starts erasing everything? It might even erase me!
Yikes! I’d better get out of here.
Hey, look down there. Is that what I think I see?
It’s my puddle! You’re back, puddle! I think I finally figured out why my puddle leaves.
My puddle is shy. My puddle doesn’t like it when there are lots of people and dogs around.
Puddle, I think you’d better be careful though. A giant eraser is after us. If you’re not careful you might be disappearing again before you’re ready.
I’m on my way now.
Look at this! Somebody else has been here. There’s been a dog on my trails but he’s not here anymore.
I think that eraser got him.

I’m glad you have your puddle back! Now you’ll be able to leave lovely muddy pawprints on clothes, furniture, bedclothes etc. Give things that personal touch.

Delft, my person wouldn’t let me play Frisbee today. Something about those muddy pawprints. I don’t know why she’s so worried.

I hope that giant eraser is far far away now!!!!
Yeay! for finding your puddle, Bongo!!!!

Marina, I think that eraser is working double duty right now. It erased all the tall rocks. We can’t see them at all. But I’m safe inside so it can’t get me.

you are the funniest dog that I have ever known but you are also the most delightful. I love to read about your trail adventures/misadventures….you give me such pleasure everyday…thank you and thank you puddle for coming back again!
December 15, 2012 at 12:24 pm
Thanks Patreciau. Not only did my puddle come back, but now I have some puddles in my yard too – and even a little bit of snow.
December 15, 2012 at 12:55 pm
Puddles certainly can be shy, but aren’t they fun to play with??? 🙂 Happy Saturday to you, Bongo!

Laura, puddles are great. A whole lot of my puddle’s friends came out today too. I had a fun time splashing around. For some reason I couldn’t get my person to follow me though.
December 15, 2012 at 5:24 pm
You sure are discovering a lot today!
December 15, 2012 at 6:28 pm
Kirby, I always love finding new things on my trails.

It is odd when a mystery eraser is busy. Sometimes in the morning when I look outside everything is gone…there is just grey. Later on everything is back where it is supposed to be. Weird.
December 15, 2012 at 6:29 pm
Patricia, the eraser has been busy here today. It keep erasing the big rocks near us and then making them come back.

Benny & Lily, for some reason cars don’t like my trails when it rains.

Yay for your puddle Bongo! Christmas is coming soon, so Santa Paw might give you a little bit early Christmas pressie “your puddle back” ! Hmmm…. the color of the Thunder Mountain is weird….please be careful to be not erased, Bongo…we will miss yooooouuuuu!!!!
December 16, 2012 at 1:16 pm
Kevin, I’m being really careful of that eraser thing. My person says it erased most of the rocks this morning, but I was hiding safe in my house.

Thanks Echo & Link, I’m hiding safe and sound in my house. That eraser thing keeps erasing the tall rocks around here.

You see, Bongo, the snow did bring your puddle back 😉
December 16, 2012 at 1:19 pm
Angels Whisper, I’m so excited that my puddle came back. And there was only a little bit of snow.
December 16, 2012 at 2:13 am
It is very strange Bongo. Perhaps someone left a bath running and it’s flooded your trails.
December 16, 2012 at 1:20 pm
Bassa, I’d better look for that bathtub. It’s gotta be big – probably a great place to go swimming.
December 16, 2012 at 2:35 pm
Perhaps your trails were sad because no one else had gone to visit and they were feeling lonely?
December 16, 2012 at 10:18 pm
Misaki, I guess I’ll have to drum up some people – and dogs – to visit my trails. If I can find them, that is.
December 16, 2012 at 2:37 pm
Your trails always have unexpected developments, B. It’s a good thing you are flexible and can roll with it. If anything changes in my neighborhood, I freak out.
Love and licks,
December 16, 2012 at 10:19 pm
Cupcake, I guess I’ve just gotten used to changes. It’s what I expect on my trails.
December 17, 2012 at 2:32 am
Stay safe pal,I don’t like the idea of a giant eraser!!
December 17, 2012 at 5:48 pm
Dalton, I’m hiding in my house where it’s warm and cosy – and that giant eraser can’t get anywhere near me.
