When I’m sniffing around on my trails looking for clues to my latest mystery, or just looking for new and interesting sniffs, I sometimes run across little black bags.
These bags aren’t very interesting in themselves except for the fact that I usually never see the same one twice.
Most of the time when I come back the same way the bag is missing. There might be another bag in a different location, but that first bag is hardly ever there anymore.
I gave up trying to solve this mystery eons ago. There’s nothing special about these bags and they just don’t interest me enough.
There might be something inside these bags, but the smell doesn’t come through and I’d much rather solve mysteries with more aromatic clues.
But today, while I was sniffing the territory and looking for some clues that might lead me to a new mystery I passed another of those little black bags.
I was about to walk right by it when…
I had to do a double take.
Apparently somebody thought this particular bag was special.

You said it Lola. They’re so hard to figure out sometimes.

Benny & Lily, I wonder if someone’s trying to make people think it’s a gift.

Somebody loves….. Um….. Poop?? Wait. What?
Love and licks and a puzzled look,

Cupcake, it’s sure got me. It’s one of the stranger things I’ve found on my trails.

Bongo, I think I don’t want to know, just bury it… 🙂

Little Binky, I might need you to come help me. Cats are so much better at burying things like this.

Ooooh I think I’ve got it – black bags sometimes have money inside. You’re just not smelling anything because, well…you can’t eat money. But it can buy a bag of biscuits!
May 7, 2013 at 9:56 pm
Lola and Diane, maybe I could buy a bag of heart shaped biscuits. I’m on it now!
May 7, 2013 at 1:37 pm
Ah, Bongo, maybe you have a secret admirer!

Marina, I saw my girlfriend Lucy on my trails twice this week. Maybe it was her.

Something is giving that bag a hug ( and a gentle reminder…to hug the trails!)
May 7, 2013 at 10:01 pm
Karen, I guess everything on my trails deserves a hug. Think I’d better head out to my trails to look for some hugs now.

Why wouldn’t they toss the bags!? Well the hearts are for SURE from an admirer!!
May 8, 2013 at 6:05 pm
Max, the people usually pick those bags up on their way back and toss them then. I’m not sure about the hearts though.

Hmmmm….very mysterious bag….the shape of the wood things has the key of the mystery?
Were all of them hear shaped?
May 8, 2013 at 6:06 pm
Kevin, all of those wood things were heart shaped. I’m still not sure what that means.
May 9, 2013 at 8:08 am
Oh, somebody has lost his/her heart? Or rather, a group of people became heartless together? This is a very creepy mystery!
May 9, 2013 at 9:14 pm
Kolytyi, I sure hope I don’t meet any of those heartless people on my trails.

Okay Bongo I’ll be honest at first I thought they were poop bags, ewww but now I am intrigued what the bags are all about.
May 9, 2013 at 9:21 pm
Misty Shores, they are poop bags. But I have no idea who left their hearts on one of them.

Ginger thinks some doggie bombs next to it would tell them how we dogs feel about such things…..
May 12, 2013 at 10:20 pm
Ginger, I was thinking the same thing. Doggie bombs it is.
