Shadows and Squishy Mud

02 Feb

Bongo and his shadow over mudSomething strange is happening on my trails today. Some things just don’t go together.

One of those things is shadows. Shadows show up when the sun is out. We have a lot of sunny days here so I’m used to seeing shadows.

The other thing is squishy mud. We don’t have squishy mud as often as we have shadows. It either has to rain a lot, or snow enough to turn everything good and white – and then melt.

These two things don’t show up on my trails at the same time. If we have shadows it’s not raining and right now there’s no snow anywhere in sight.

But they’re here. Both of them. I think I’d better investigate.

Hmmm. This is interesting. A lot of people walked on my trails when I wasn’t around. Maybe I’d better hang out more often. I’m missing out on a lot of loves.

And what’s this? It looks like it was made by one of those bike things. I guess somebody forgot to leave it at that rack thingy. The one I use as a message post. I could have left a really good message on that bike.

This is not good. Some other dog leaving marks in my squishy mud. Next thing you know, that dog will be thinking these are his trails.

I’d better make this investigation official. I’m off to get my official hat. No dog would try to cross Detective Dog.

    B., all those wasted loves are killing me! You need to get out there more often.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, I definitely think I need to get my person to take me on longer walks. Maybe some all day ones.

      Cats? Cats? Where are they? If I see a cat I’m chasing it out of there. No cats allowed on my trails.

      Marina, I’ll allow the use of the mud by other dogs as long as they realize they’re on my trails.

    I can see foot prints in the sand, this must be a clue and there is either a bicycle print or it could be a pram…all these things together should form a solution…Bongo-Sherlock on the track again , sort ’em out boy!

      Patrecia, I’m working on it. I think I need to take my person on another walk so I can pick up some more clues.

      Benny & Lily, I guess maybe we’re popular and we’ve got to live with being followed.

    Oh no…I can tell that there were many humans, paws and bikes enjoyed walking on your trails because of those prints on the squishy mud! Poor Bongo….you should let them know whose trails they are and they need to get your permission when they enter your trails Bongo! 🙂

      Kevin, everybody that enters my trails is supposed to give me loves. But it looks like some people have been sneaking on my trails when I’m not looking.

    Oh man, you are just toooo cool with that cap on, remind me of some kind of detective from the 70’s. Keep rocking Bongo!

      Thanks Kirby. Wearing that cap always helps me when I’m working on an investigation.

    You should buy a bike for your person – and you could make longer walks together!

    • Bongo

      Kolytyi, I guess my person could use my younger person’s bike. He’s not using it much. My person says that biking on my trails is a real challenge though because they’re really rocky.
