Name that Trail

29 Mar

Broken RockOne of my trails that I take my person on a lot doesn’t have a name. That’s because it’s not an official trail.

As far as I’m concerned it’s official, but it’s kind of nice because it’s almost private.

But I’ve been thinking, that trail really needs a name.

My person must have been thinking the same thing because today we found a broken rock on the trail and she thought Broken Rock Trail would be a good name.

She even tried to get me to pose by the rock to make it official.

I’ve got to think of another name quick. Broken Rock sounds so stupid. I mean, somebody accidentally stepped on that rock and broke it and now it’s going to be the name of my trail?

I don’t think so.

I thought and thought – as much as a dog brain can think – and finally I came up with it.

Here it is! The official name for my trail.

Good Sniffs Trail it is.

I bet all the dogs will want to visit it now.

    Good Sniffs Trail sounds great, but it won’t be private anymore with that name, will it?!!!

      Marina, I guess if I name it Good Sniffs Trail I’ll have to share it with all my dog friends.

    This is the perfect name for your trail! But keep it secret! It is strictly confidential!

      Kolytyi, I won’t tell a soul about my trail – except for some of my blogging buddies. I’ll share my trails with you anytime.

    I agree with Marina – how many other dogs do you want sniffing YOUR trail? Not too many at a go I bet. I would have named it Broken Rock as well, so there. Have many happy walks along the Good Sniffs Bongo.

      Thanks Susan. I guess I could allow other dogs to sniff on my trail when I’m not on it. That way I’d have more messages to check out.

    Bongo, did you water the rock, because of its name 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 31, 2013 at 8:38 pm

      Angels Whisper and Little Binky, that rock was too small and by the time I found it I didn’t have enough water left to aim at such a small target. I’ll have to do it next time.

    I like that name! And to think, the more dogs that visit, the more good sniffs there were be!

    • Bongo

      Rumpy, I wish you could come and sniff with me on my trail. We could leave lots of messages too.

    What’s wrong with naming it Bongo trail?

    • Bongo

      March 31, 2013 at 8:41 pm

      Diane, Bongo Trail would be good. Then there would be no doubt about who’s trail it is.

      Ginger, you can’t have your name on my trail unless you come hang out on it with me. You’d better start packing for the trip out here.

    Surely it should have your name as it’s your trail!!

    • Bongo

      April 2, 2013 at 12:14 pm

      Dalton, I wasn’t thinking when I came up with that name. I’ve definitely got to add my name to it.
