People Leaving Messages

14 Jun

I Brake for Butterflies bumper stickerI’m finding some strange messages on some of the cars parked at my trails.

I think people are trying to imitate us dogs by leaving messages, but they haven’t quite figured out how to do it. I’m not sure they make any sense at all.

Look at this one for instance. “I Brake for Butterflies.”

It would take an awful lot of butterflies flying right into someone at the same time for that someone to break. I mean, those butterflies don’t weigh much and they’re pretty fragile themselves.

I can’t figure out – is this person with this bumper sticker afraid of butterflies? They’re not really scary.

Maybe I should find a butterfly and show this person how friendly butterflies can be. They might realize they wouldn’t break at all.

But here’s an even stranger message.

Bumper sticker says "I ascended at the Sedona 2012 Festival

I’m still trying to figure this one out. Did this person ascend to the top of one of the tall rocks around here? They’re pretty tough to climb, but some people do it.

Or maybe they ascended in one of the hot air balloons that we see.

But some people in Sedona think they can ascend into the atmosphere, or the ozone, or some higher plane somewhere. I think the plane has to take you up there.

I hope those people that ascend in strange ways know how to find their way back down without falling. That might be a rude awakening. You start floating up and away and suddenly you’re falling instead.


But I finally found some car messages that make sense.

I think I would really like the people who leave messages like this on their car.

Bumper stickers: "Rescue Adopt" "Wag More Bark Less"

    Good job, B. You found the best message of all. once I accidentally ate a butterfly. It was delicious.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, I’ve never tried eating a butterfly. I think I’ll have to go catch one and check it out.

      Chancy and Mumsy, I bet if all those rescue dogs were adopted they’d be wagging a lot.

      Alex, Trish, and Penny, I guess some of the people here don’t make sense either. But some make perfect sense – like the kind that put those last bumper stickers on their car.

    I like the last one, too!!! Very thoughtful message! The people who wrote it must be wonderful, too! 🙂

      Kevin, that’s what I’m thinking. Those people must be pretty cool.

    to tell ya the truth Bongo, I’d like to leave “our” messages on some of the messages I see on some cars around here! Love ya, Lola

    • Bongo

      Lola, there’s some cars that certainly deserve to have our messages left on them. For some reason when I try though, my person always stops me.

    Does that guy brake only when he is seeing a butterfly??? And how did put that message the second person you mentioned when he ascended into the atmosphere? Did he drop it from the heavens? No, this is not possible. I’m confused. At least the last message deserves waggings of appreciation.

    • Bongo

      June 18, 2013 at 12:47 pm

      Kolytyi, I sure hope that first guy brakes for dogs too. But if not I’ll wag with the last guy and stay out of the first guy’s way.

    MOL 😀 Good observation Bongo! I don’t brake for butterflies, I chase for them… 😉

    • Bongo

      Little Binky, butterflies are much better for chasing than for braking.
