Somebody’s Missing

20 Dec

Bird on top of a treeI’ve been seeing lots of people, dogs, and birds on my trails lately. The birds are different than the summer birds, but there sure are a lot of them.

I even thought I was going to get to smell a rabbit, but I was surprised to find my own smell on that hair. I can’t help it if I shed in the winter. I wish my person would stop picking all the loose stuff out when we’re on my trails. How would you like it if someone kept picking at your butt?

I forgot where I was going with this. Something about smelly butts?

No, that wasn’t it. With everybody I’m seeing on my trails, there’s still somebody who’s missing. My younger person is home from college right now so he should be on my trails. We’ve been seeing his friends on my trails. Of course they recognized me and I got loves, but they wanted to know where my younger person was.

And so do I. How come he’s missing from my trails?

Next time I’m ready to go out I’m going to have to attach a leash to him and drag him out. I guess my person will be alright without a leash if I do that. I think I have her trained well enough. She’s not likely to run off.

    Oh, you have her well trained, o’right! As for your younger person, I’m sure you’ll train him soon enough, but till then, the leash is a great idea!!!

      Marina, my younger person is really hard to control. He disappears for days at a time. I’m always worried that he might go out and give the coyotes what for without bringing me along.

    Hmmm, must be something people just have to do – the hair picking thing. Diane’s been tugging & pulling and it’s just not my fault that the groomer loosened everything up last week. You certainly do have your person very well trained Bongo but it does take time doesn’t it?

      Lola, training our people is something we have to keep up on constantly. I don’t get as much time with my younger person because he keeps disappearing for days at a time, but I do get in my daily training sessions with my person. Except for that hair picking thing. I don’t know what’s gotten into her lately.

    You are such a good teacher, B. Soon your younger person will learn to be as obedient as your person. Then your trail walks will be super fun.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, first I have to figure out how to convince my younger person that he needs the exercise and fresh air. After that it will be a piece of cake. Did somebody say cake?

    LOVE it! Younger person should absolutely be on the trail with you. They are terrible when they get to that age. It is like they forget everything you taught them. We have a similar problem her and we think that the college kids pay more attention to the cats when they come home – what’s with that?

      Dogdaz, my younger person doesn’t pay much attention to Scratchy either. At least that’s a good thing. But he certainly needs to go out on the trails with me for some exercise and fresh air – and to see all of his friends that we’ve been finding on my trails.

    Owch! That feels like emotional blackmail… does your younger person read your blog perchance??! Good luck there!

      Flo, I’m hoping my younger person will read this, but I don’t think he will. Guess I’ve got to work on another tactic.

    Bongo, what is it with the young persons? They never want to walk with you, unless there’s a compensation… maybe it helps if you give her some treats 😉

      Angels Whisper, I guess that might work – to give my younger person some treats. The hard part would be not eating them myself first. Maybe I’ll just settle for the treats.

    I do hope your younger person does take you out on the trails Bongo. You have so much to show him.

      Bassa, I’m having a hard time convincing my younger person that there’s a whole nother world out there. Lots more than is on his computer.

    Oh poor Bongo…but maybe your younger person is too tired to go out right now because of having done lots of college works and needs some rests?
    So he’ll probably go out on your trail with you before long! 🙂

      Kevin, I think my younger person is getting too much rest right now. I guess I’ll go take a nap and get some rest with him.
