23 Mar

Two pink flowers getting ready to openSpring weather has hit and my person had her camera out – again.

We saw lots of dogs on my trails and I was the only one who had to take my person on a leash. I guess those other dog people are better trained than my person is, because they seem to stay pretty close to their dogs.

Well, my person kept trying to avoid all those other dogs. I don’t think she trusts me to protect her from them. I don’t know why she thinks that. I’m good at giving those dogs what for.

But we had to go off this way and that way – on trails we hadn’t planned on going on – just to avoid all those other dogs.

Except for the first dog we met. We were walking faster than that dog and his people so one of the dog’s people picked him up while we walked by. Did I mention he was a little dog?

When we headed back I decided to take my person into the wash. We usually have the wash to ourselves, except for the birds. Hardly any people and dogs go there.

A hawk flew by and landed in a tree. We backtracked so my person could try to get close enough to get a good picture. But we never did get close, so you’ll have to search hard for that hawk.

And the reason we didn’t get close was because that first little dog and his people were right behind us. In the wash that hardly anybody goes in. So we turned around and went back the other way.

We left the wash and headed back on the trail, and you know what happened? That little dog left his people and followed us. He probably knows I’m a famous blogging dog and wanted to meet me.

So now I have a new friend. And he smells pretty good too.

    Bongo, I think the little dog wants you as a friend, not only because you’re famous, but also because you’re Bongo-looks 🙂

      Angels Whisper, that little dog was definitely interested in me. His people were trying to call him back and he kept following me.

    Good for you Bongo, making a new friend like that. Glad to hear someone over there saying Spring has arrived. Every other blog seems to be on about snow still.

      Susan, I guess living in the Southwest has some definite advantages. Until summer, that is.

    Wow, B! You really gave that new friend a good sniffing up. Very thorough!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, you never know if someone’s your friend unless you check them out sniff them thoroughly.

    With all those other dogs you could become a trail guide and show them around.

      Patricia, it would be great fun to go exploring with other dogs.

      Bunk, I think he was about ready to ask, but his people took him away. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    I am sure that little dog was just thrilled to come across such a celebrity Bongo, I know I would be!

    I see the hawk 😉

    • Bongo

      March 23, 2013 at 5:41 pm

      Misty Shores, I think that little dog was overwhelmed. I’m glad you could find the hawk. Sometimes we hear it but can’t see it at all.

    not only did your new friend smell good, Bongo, but you must have had your sweet smells on yourself. 😀 good on ya!

      Sunshine, I bet that’s why my new friend followed me. My good looks and my good smells.

        oh, you forgot one important thing, Bongo…your smartness. 😀

    We got a woods walk today, finally a nice day. No pretty flowers, but lots of people without dogs. We had to get on leash twice and change directions 3 times. It wound up being short:(

    • Bongo

      March 24, 2013 at 1:35 pm

      Lexie and Mica, so glad you got out in the woods, even if it was short. Woods walks are the best.

        You know it Bongo, the world would be sad without woods walks. At least for us 🙂

      Bassa, he was kind of cute. I hope I see him on my trails again soon.

    I think your person needs urgently dog therapy to help her to overcome her fears of dogs.

    • Bongo

      March 24, 2013 at 1:37 pm

      Kolytyi, I’ve been working on my person, but I can’t seem to get her to go to the dog therapist.

      • kolytyi

        March 24, 2013 at 10:05 pm

        You could be her dog therapist! What do you think? I think she would be in good paws!

    Ha ha ha…Bongo…you’re so funny!!! I love your sense of humor that makes me always laugh! Even if I feel down, I would be feeling happy and cheerful after reading your blog!!! Thanks Bongo!
    Wow! Glad you found a new cute friend who has a good smell! Heehee…
    We can see the hawk on the picture!! Is he not harmful?

    • Bongo

      Kevin, the hawks here are not very big so I don’t have to worry about them. They’re more interested in smaller birds and little animals like mice. They look pretty cool when you see them flying though.

    That little pup probably knew all about your cool adventures and wanted to join in 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 25, 2013 at 1:16 pm

      Remy, that’s what I’m thinking. It’s most fun on my trails if you hang out with me.

      Ginger, I love seeing hawks too. They don’t hang out on my trails very often.
