What is going on here? There are broken branches all over the ground.
We haven’t had any storms around here lately. None of that nasty thunder and lightning and not even any rain or hail. Maybe some wind, but not enough to knock all these branches down.
I’d better get my Detective Dog hat on and check this out.
That’s better. Now I can check for clues.
Wait a minute! Look at that tree that’s surrounded by all these loose branches. Somebody has hacked it all up.
I wonder if somebody else brought all these branches here to try and repair the tree.
If that’s what happened they left before they finished.
Now I have even more mysteries.
What to do? What to do?
Guess I’d better look for more clues.
Hey, I think I just saw a hawk fly by.
Maybe the hawk brought all those branches here and it flew away to look for more.
Or maybe little mice brought the branches and the hawk chased them off.
It would probably take a lot of little mice to carry each one of those branches.
I bet that would look pretty cool – seeing all those little mice work together.
Maybe if I hang out here for awhile the hawk won’t come back and the little mice will get brave and come out again.
I think I’ve solved another mystery.
Oh, wait! I’ve got two mysteries. I know that little mice brought the branches, but who hacked that tree up in the first place.
Maybe the little mice know. I think I’ll just wait here and ask them.

It sounds like this might be one of your
toughest mysteries yet.

Grandma, this one really is a challenge. It means my person has to take me on lots of walks so I can do more investigating.
June 10, 2013 at 10:40 am
Hawk? Mice? What’s their problem anyway?!!!!
Bongo, I know you want to investigate, but some companies are better avoided!
Just make sure you leave your message on those branches…
June 10, 2013 at 10:10 pm
Marina, maybe if I leave my message someone will leave some more clues.

Nice hat. 🙂

Thanks Mike. And thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Are you getting any “messages” from any of your trail friends?
Love and licks,
June 10, 2013 at 10:14 pm
Cupcake, the lizards were out today. Maybe they brought those branches.

What a detective you are. Scooby Doo better watch out or I’m petitioning you for a replacement 🙂 I love your little hat. XOXO – Bacon

Thanks Bacon. I learned everything I know at the Scooby Doo Academy.

There sure are a lot of mysteries on your trails. Good thing you have that spiffy detective hat.
June 10, 2013 at 10:16 pm
Patricia, that hat really helps me when it comes to solving mysteries. There’s so many though that I might have to get another hat.

Those mice better stay hidden. Cool hat

Thanks Benny & Lily. No mice have shown themselves yet.

Hmmm….probably someone who hacked that tree up must be a big fan of Detective Dog Bongo, so he/she might wants you to wear the hat and that was why they did it!!! I like your hat, too!!! 🙂
June 11, 2013 at 9:25 pm
Thanks Kevin. I sure hope my hat isn’t the cause of this poor tree getting hurt though. I’d better investigate further.
June 11, 2013 at 3:16 pm
That hat always makes me happy – and I know you are off on some adventure.
That 3rd picture looks like the tree is really angry and wants everything to stay away?
June 11, 2013 at 9:29 pm
Karen, I’m glad you like my hat. Maybe I should wear it in front of the tree more often. It might not be so angry then.
June 11, 2013 at 5:03 pm
When in doubt drown them out! Perhaps the branches need watering and they will become trees? Thats what we collies always do… 🙂 Ginger says burn the mice out…
June 11, 2013 at 9:33 pm
Ginger, I’ll work on watering those branches, but if we get a good rain they’re right where all the rain is gonna come. I can save my water for elsewhere.
June 11, 2013 at 11:23 pm
That’s a tough one Inspector, but I’m sure you’ll sort it out 🙂
June 16, 2013 at 1:35 pm
Little Binky, I’m working on it.
June 12, 2013 at 1:02 pm
I think it was King Kong Bongo…I hear that’s a big scary monster that goes around ripping things apart…Lola
June 16, 2013 at 1:53 pm
Lola, I’m really worried now. If there’s a big scary monster on my trails I’d better do something. I know – I’ll send Scratchy after him.

I think the Olympic Games of Squirrels were organized on that tree.
June 16, 2013 at 2:01 pm
Kolytyi, you’re right. I could have been those pesky squirrels that busted up that tree.
