I think somebody is trying to take over my trails. And steal my blog. And become the center of attention.
How dare this creature pose for the main picture in my blog post? That spot should always be reserved for me.
At least that creature is small. Maybe all anyone sees is a rock and a bunch of branches. Maybe that little thing blends in with the background.
Now that the weather is getting warmer, lizards have been scurrying around on my trails.
I don’t even bother trying to chase them. They run right off and hide before I even get near.
We have the wimpiest creatures on my trails. The only ones willing to get near me are my dog friends – and the people, of course.
All the creatures that live on my trails run off at the mere thought that someone might be coming too close. Even the birds fly off when we get near – as if we could ever catch them up a tree.
Maybe I should bring Scratchy on my trails with me. He could climb up the tree after those birds and then when they fly off he’d be stuck there.
Hey, great idea. Why didn’t I think of that before?
But where was I going with this?
Oh yes, that lizard.
It’s a good thing he does run off so easily.
He’s going to have a hard time taking over my blog if he’s running off to hide in the bushes.
Now to go get Scratchy.

Nah!!! They wouldn’t dare take over your blog or trails, Bongo! They’re cute and rather defenseless little creatures!
May 9, 2013 at 9:15 pm
Marina, I guess they’d have a hard time taking over my blog since they’re always running away.

Moving sticks! Molly gets them confused with a thrown ball….but is being persuaded to carry them gently as they are mosquito hunters….(well most of the time we spot the tail sticking out and manage a rescue and immediate relocation….otherwise she keeps trying to retrieve them….balls are dull when compared to moving sticks!)
May 9, 2013 at 9:17 pm
Molly, maybe we should play a game of moving sticks together. My person says she knows kids that have tried to catch one by the tail and all they ended up with was the tail.

Molly must be working towards some Olympic event

snort oink – this is why I don’t do nature my friend. there’s lots of *things* out there trying to get us – PLOL. XOXO – Bacon
May 9, 2013 at 9:18 pm
Bacon, you do have to watch out for a lot of things out there, but life wouldn’t be much of an adventure without them.
May 10, 2013 at 4:04 am
I am working on it. I’m I’m therapy trying to get over some of my “nature” hesitations. I’ve come a long way. XOXO – Bacon

Those dragons are good for nothing but chasing

Benny & Lily, I’d try to chase them but the first thing they do is hide in some little crevice that I can’t get to.

They could never steal your trails or blog, Bongo! But if they brave and daring enough to even try, I bet you could chase them off, no problem! I bet Scratchy might even help 🙂 I’m sure he doesn’t want his home overrun with little green dragons…
May 9, 2013 at 9:21 pm
Love of a Dog, we actually had one show up in our house last year. Scratchy didn’t even notice it until my person covered it with an upside down box. Then Scratchy wanted to get into the box.
May 9, 2013 at 2:53 pm
Our yard is totally filled with lizards and sometimes in winter they even come in the house to warm up…and momz puts out water for them…but they do funny stuff that make us laugh so i guess i’ll let them stay…at least they don’t mess with my blog…oh wait…that’s exactly what they did yesterday BOL!
May 9, 2013 at 9:29 pm
Gizmo, I don’t know what to do about those lizards. Maybe we should give them their own blog so they don’t take over ours.
May 9, 2013 at 3:22 pm
GAH! I see him! He looks like a blog thief! Oh, the nerve – sitting there posing, as if he’s a dog….. It’s scandalous.
Love and licks,
May 9, 2013 at 9:30 pm
Cupcake, maybe you can help me give that lizard what for.
May 9, 2013 at 3:25 pm
No danger of those little lizards taking over your Blog Bongo, they just want to hide!
May 9, 2013 at 9:30 pm
Barb, I guess you’re right. It’s kind of hard to take over a blog when you’re in hiding.

Ah I don’t think he wants to steal your blog Bongo, I think he just wanted you to wrote a post about him 😉
May 9, 2013 at 9:31 pm
Misty Shores, I guess it’s okay if that lizard is only in one post. I’ve just got to make sure it doesn’t go to his head.
May 10, 2013 at 1:11 am
I think that’s a brilliant idea!
May 10, 2013 at 11:07 am
Dalton, I tried but I couldn’t get Scratchy to leave the house.
May 10, 2013 at 7:18 am
OMD! Well….to be honest, I couldn’t find the lizard on the picture! He must have been pretending he was not visible….Bongo, you shouldn’t let him take over your blog! Or We miss your adventurous posts!!!
May 10, 2013 at 11:09 am
Kevin, I think you’re right. That lizard would just have boring posts. I mean, how exciting can it be when you’re always running off and hiding.
May 10, 2013 at 12:35 pm
Stay away from that lizard guy Bongo – he’s going to try to sell you insurance.
May 10, 2013 at 7:37 pm
Lola and Diane, I think he needs to improve his methods. It’s hard to sell insurance when you’re hiding under a bush.
May 10, 2013 at 6:24 pm
He’s too little to see to take over your blog, but he is a cute little guy. Have to look for a minute to find him, he blends in with the ground. I think your blog is safe and the cute little lizard is safe I hope 🙂
May 10, 2013 at 7:45 pm
Lexie and Mica, I don’t think that lizard knows how to write or tell stories – so I’m probably safe.
May 11, 2013 at 6:48 am
I think you can be very proud to be so highly respected by a great many of creatures on your trails, Bongo!
May 11, 2013 at 1:04 pm
Kolytyi, I guess they must respect me if they run off like that.

Don’t worry, lizards are too boring to take over your blog and they are not nearly as cute as you Bongo!
May 11, 2013 at 1:06 pm
Wag of a Tail, that’s why I’m worried about that lizard. If he took over my blog nobody would want to read it because it would be so boring.
May 12, 2013 at 2:54 pm
Ginger says bring a hammock and scratchy and then slingshot scratchy out of sight!!! Muwahahahahaha Lizards sound.. well.. not so good to eat…. squirrels on the other hand.. nom, nom, nom.
May 12, 2013 at 10:18 pm
Ginger, maybe I can get Scratchy to eat the lizard. My person says that sometimes makes cats sick.
May 13, 2013 at 3:22 am
He’s cute, Bongo, but you better watch that he won’t do blog hops… imagine that he takes over all our blogs…
May 13, 2013 at 1:17 pm
Little Binky, that would be terrible. A lizard on every blog. I think we’re safe though. I’ve never seen one hop.
June 4, 2013 at 8:35 am
time to get scratchy… 🙂
June 4, 2013 at 1:02 pm
Sanscera, I sure hope Scratchy can go up those trees better than he can get back down.
