I find strange things on my trails fairly often, but today I found one of the strangest. I found a leash, with nobody attached, just hanging around by itself.
Time to get on my Detective Dog hat and start looking for clues.
Hmmm. I’m picking up some scents, but I’m not sure what it all means.
Hey wait a minute. One of the scents on here is mine – from yesterday.
So much for solving this mystery by the smells around here.
What could it all mean?
Somewhere on my trails there is a dog running around without a leash.
And there is also a person on my trails who is not attached to a leash.
This could be really bad.
I’d better go look for that person and that dog. They might be lost from each other.
Maybe I could be a hero and reunite them.
Wait a minute. What’s this?
What is this, National Lose Your Leash Day?
Maybe I can find some clues around this one.
Hmmm. I think this might be some kind of conspiracy.
Somebody might be trying to keep Detective Dog busy so they can pull some heist somewhere else.
They’re not going to succeed though, because I found out something that they don’t know.
This second thing isn’t a leash at all.
It’s a strap with clips on it so people can attach their stuff.
So when those people pull that heist, they’re going to discover that their strap is missing.
And they’ll have no way to carry all the stuff they stole.
I’d better go now and find out where they dropped all that stuff.
Maybe they dropped some treats.

No stopping Detective Bongo!!! 🙂
What an idea… they might indeed have dropped some treats!!!
🙂 [let me know!]

Marina, I’m still trying to find where they dropped all the stuff. I hope some other dog doesn’t find it first.

Aha! It’s the old strap-that-looks-like-a-leash-trick! They ALMOST had you fooled, but no. Once the detective hat is on, there is no fooling you, B.
Love and licks,

Cupcake, they sure were trying to distract me – but nobody can fool Detective Dog.

What did you find?? Completely curious here, Detective Dog :)!
June 8, 2013 at 4:14 pm
Roberta, I’m still looking for the dropped stash. I hope some other dog doesn’t beat me to it.

Hmm. It’s a real mystery Bongo. Perhaps someone was pulling that big bag of rocks with a leash and got tired 🙂
June 8, 2013 at 11:01 pm
Bassa, I would be so disappointed if all they were doing was pulling a big bag of rocks. There’s no treats in there.
June 9, 2013 at 12:14 am
Bongo, maybe that whatever has to be on that leash, is invisible.. but then I hope the treats are visible 🙂

Little Binky, as long as I can smell those treats I’ll find them.
June 9, 2013 at 7:40 am
Bongo, it’s a trap! They hide treats inside the rocks, and tried to pull them but somehow, it was too heavy to carry or pull, so they must give up! You should check inside of the rocks! 🙂
June 10, 2013 at 10:01 pm
Kevin, I’ll go back and check those rocks right now. I hope the rocks don’t cover up the smell so I can’t find them.

I’ve seen people walking invisible dogs on those silly leash things but usually there’s a person on the other end – don’t know why they don’t just get a dog, but some people are weird. Good thing it’s not a real leash because that could mean you’ve got a lost dog AND lost person somewhere out there. Then it would be Bongo the Searcher dog.

Lola, I might have to get a new hat if I need to go searching.

At first I thought maybe someone had left you a new leash but seems you have a real mystery on your paws.
June 10, 2013 at 10:07 pm
Misty Shores, this mystery has my stymied. I’m still looking for the treats.
June 10, 2013 at 10:52 am
Tried somebody to walk stone-dogs on those leashes? Perhaps a stone-person?
June 10, 2013 at 10:12 pm
Kolytyi, stone dogs and a stone person? Now that’s a real mystery. I think I’d better investigate.

Detective dog looks so cool with the detective dog hat! 😀

Thanks Donna. It’s my favorite hat to wear. And thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Treats? Did someone say Treats? Collies on the way to help you!!!
June 11, 2013 at 9:34 pm
Come on Collies! I could use all the help I can get – and there’s sure to be enough treats for all.
