Ghost Dog on the trailsSomething unusual happened on my trails today. Yeah, I know. Unusual things are always happening on my trails. And this thing isn’t all that unusual. What’s unusual is that it happened twice – only two days apart.

Every few months I have this particular sighting on my trails. No, it’s not a UFO sighting, but it’s something equally as amazing. At least I think so. And every time I have this sighting it only lasts for a short time, and then it’s gone.

What I’m talking about is Ghost Dog. He looks like a ghost ‘cause he’s white and he always disappears right away. My person says he has a real name, but Ghost Dog works for me.

So a couple days ago I was minding my business, out on my trails when – there he was. And just as I expected, he disappeared almost as quickly.

And today it happened again. This time I was almost back to the trailhead before he showed up. But he did something strange. He took his time disappearing. He let me actually get up to him and sniff his side. He must be losing his touch – or his ghostiness.

Well, that wasn’t good enough for me. I mean, how can he be Ghost Dog if he’s not going to disappear? So you know what I did?

I gave him a little shove.

    I wonder if your ghost has a home?

      BZ, my person says he does have a home. He actually lives right behind us but there’s a fence between us so I can’t see him there. I guess he just wanders off to the trails sometimes. They’re not far from either of our houses.

    It’s been some time since you last saw ghost dog. He seems nice… you didn’t really give him a shove, did you?!

    • Bongo

      February 25, 2013 at 3:31 pm

      Marina, I did give him a shove. He was ignoring me.

    Wow – making friends with a ghost dog – cool! I wonder who ghost dog belongs to?

      Blueberry and Blueberry’s human, my person say she knows where Ghost Dog lives. He just likes to wander off to my trails sometimes. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Always the helpful little fella eh bongo?

      Patrecia, sometimes you just have to give someone a push in the right direction.

    Maybe it was just a little playful dog shouldering? Something must be up if ghost dog is wanting contact with the Bongo world.

      Karen, Ghost Dog has been known to actually come over and share sniffs with me before disappearing. But lately he’s been ignoring me when I see him. That’s why I told him to disappear.

      Benny & Lily, some people here say we have all kinds of UFOs – even hiding in some of the rocks – but I’ve never seen one. All I ever see is Ghost Dog.

    OMGoodness, B. A shove? I think I would’ve been a little more subtle. Ghost dog looks like a good guy.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, I was upset because Ghost Dog was ignoring me – and then not even disappearing.

    Well at least you know what he smells like now – just be very careful if he shows up in your dreams.

    • Bongo

      February 25, 2013 at 3:58 pm

      Ghost dreams. That sounds kind of scary.

    Ghost Dog looks really sweet, do you think he wants to be your friend? I hope he has a home? It looked like he had a collar?

    Wags to all

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

      Snoopy, my person says Ghost Dog has a home near hear. He just likes to wander to my trails sometimes. He used to come over and say hi when we saw each other, but now he usually just disappears.

    I wonder, Bongo, if Ghost Dog thinks those trails are his….

    • Bongo

      February 25, 2013 at 5:31 pm

      Roberta, he probably thinks the trails are his until I show up. I bet that’s why he always disappears. He knows they’re my trails.

      • Roberta

        You could be right, Bongo; he cedes to your dominion.

    Aww, what if Ghost Dog is lost? Does Ghost Dog have a human, too?

    • Bongo

      February 25, 2013 at 6:42 pm

      Kat, Ghost Dog lives in the neighborhood and has a person. It’s a good thing because if I took him home with me he’d just disappear from my house. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Gave him a shove! I guess you couldn’t stand the lack of mystery 😉

    • Bongo

      February 25, 2013 at 7:59 pm

      Jen, I’m so used to Ghost Dog disappearing that I wouldn’t know what to do if he stayed.

    Maybe he came in a UFO that left him and he is waiting for it to come back.

    • Bongo

      February 25, 2013 at 11:12 pm

      Patricia, I bet he can’t find his phone so he can phone home.

    Sounds like you had an exciting (but brief) interaction with Ghost Dog!

    • Bongo

      February 25, 2013 at 11:13 pm

      Elizabeth, it’s always fun to see Ghost Dog. It doesn’t usually happen very often.

    February 26, 2013 at 1:16 am

    Wow, Bongo, so you were really lucky this time by seeing Ghost Dog again. I think he will forgive you that little shove 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2013 at 2:39 pm

      Angels Whisper and Little Binky, I’m sure Ghost Dog will be coming around again one of these days.

    i hope you get to see him again, maybe he’ll be a bit friendlier next time

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2013 at 2:40 pm

      Misaki, Ghost Dog used to be a bit friendlier. I hope he comes around again.

    Hmmm…Ghost Dog seems to have lots of freedom to strolling wherever he wants! I’m jealous of him! 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2013 at 2:41 pm

      Kevin, I’m jealous of Ghost Dog too. But I bet he doesn’t get as many treats as we do.

    Oh, Bongo, wasn’t you a bit ruthless to Ghost Dog? He/she might be a poor stray doggy!

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2013 at 2:42 pm

      Kolytyi, Ghost Dog has a home. I just kind of shoved him back to it. He shouldn’t get to run loose if I don’t.

    you can’t shove ghost dog, typist worries about him as he’s always alone!!

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2013 at 2:43 pm

      Dalton, you think I should be nicer to Ghost Dog? He really does have a home near me. I don’t know why he gets to run free though. It’s not really fair.
