Not Alone

22 May

Bongo on the trailIt was a nice, quiet day on my trails and I was enjoying having them all to myself when my person had to tell me we weren’t really alone out here.

I looked all around and I didn’t see any people or any dogs so I don’t know what she was talking about.

My person told me to look some more.

I think she’s nuts. There’s no one else here.

Hey person, I’m done looking. There’s no one here. I need to get on with my sniffing to find out who was here.

Well, check this out. Look at the little guy in this cactus flower.

And here’s another one. Trying to bury itself.

How do you expect me to notice these guys if they bury themselves inside the flowers?


Or this guy?

This guy really is trying to hide. He found his own hidey hole.

At least this one is out in the open. I think he wants to show off. I’ve never seen one like him before.


Oh, look now. Even the ants are getting into the act.

What am I supposed to do person? These are my trails. But look how many insects there are. I’m afraid they’re going to take over.

It’s useless trying to get rid of them. They’re everywhere.

This is really depressing.

I might as well be chasing butterflies.

      Marina, I guess they’re so little you can pretend they’re not they’re – except for the really little ones that bite this time of year. And my person says thanks.

    That’s a lot of company, but nobody to play with. No fun.

    Love and licks,

      Thanks Max. We see those big black beetles walking around every once in awhile, but I’ve never seen one in a hole like that before.

      FleaByte, sometimes cats like to play with bugs. Maybe I can get Scratchy to bat them all away for you.

      Thanks Misty Shores. I guess those bugs are okay as long as they’re not the biting kind.

      Ginger, I have no idea what your dad is talking about. We could get the marching ants to round up those other bugs and we’d have a whole army of marching insects on our side.
