The Best Smells

27 Mar

Good scents on SugarloafYesterday I told you about a smelly tree that I have to pass on the way to my trails. My person said that tree was probably trying to attract bees, but it wasn’t doing a very good job. I didn’t find a single bee around that tree.

I left the tree and went on to sniff much better things on my trails. Things that have messages attached so I can tell what my dog buddies have been up to.

And while I was sniffing I learned something new.

Bees must be kind of like dogs. They don’t like those smelly trees either.

They seem to like the bushes with the interesting smells too.

Although I stopped smelling this particular bush when I heard the buzzing sound.

Bee on a branch

This bee was on the busy side, and I didn’t want to disturb him.

Getting on the wrong side of a bee is kind of like getting on the wrong side of a cactus.

I’ll go find another bush to sniff.

    I know… and you really don’t want to get on the wrong side of the bee. Not to mention that he would die soon after he’d leave his sting! You are a dog with good manners, Bongo!!!

      Marina, I know my place when it comes to bees. There’s lots of other bushes I can sniff.

    Watch out for those buzzy ones! (They are swarming in the area again here…time to keep an eye and ear out – out of the way that is!)

      Karen, I guess we’re kind of lucky we’re up high enough in elevation that the nasty bees don’t find their way here. Sometimes we get carpenter bees. They’re really big but the leave you alone.

      Benny & Lily, I guess those bees likes those pretty yellow flowers because they didn’t have much smell.

    Eek!!! Your human is truly brave to get close enough to a bee to take its picture!!!

      Blueberry’s human, I think that bee was more wary of my person than she was of it. Anytime she got her camera too close it would fly to a different branch.

    Bees! Watch out. Sofie had one in her mouth once, but spit it out. Both were OK. BOL

      Dogdaz, sure glad Sofie and the bee were okay. That could have been a serious problem.

        It freaked all concerned. She inhaled it as we walked by the bush.

    Bees are naughty. My dog friend ate a bunch of them once and his head puffed up like a monster. be careful, B.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, bees for dinner doesn’t sound very appetizing. What your friend did sounds pretty scary.

    You’re smart to give those bees plenty of room, Bongo! They are not as cute as they look!

      Remy, I sure wouldn’t want to be on the wrong end of one of those bees.

    Run from those bees…they aren’t nice like birds!

      Max’s Mom, I’ll be sure to keep my distance from those bees. It’s my person I have to worry about. She gets her camera out for everything.

    You are wise Bongo to stay clear of those bee’s, they can take offense to a pushy pup 😉

      Misty Shores, those bees are little, but they sure have sting. Their buzzing is enough to keep me away.

    Bongo, I hope the bees will not take over all of your bushes, they’re a kind of die hards you know 😀

      Angels Whisper, the bees only like some of my bushes so I still have plenty to sniff and leave messages on.

    That tree is interesting! I’m curious what the tree smells like? Woof?

      Kevin, the bush I’m sniffing next to is called Scotch Broom and the one the bee is on is a bush too. Neither one of them have strong smells on their own. Just when me and my dog friends leave messages on them.

    I think peaceful co-existence is a very good strategy with these buzzing creatures. And I like their product very-very much!

      Kolytyi, my person likes honey too, but for some reason she never gives me any.
