Something smells terribly awry on my trails.
Wait, maybe I used the wrong word. I don’t smell any rye bread anywhere.
Something smells fishy?
Did I say fishy? Where’s the fish? Where? Where?
Oh, no fish. I don’t even smell any. Guess I’d better find another word.
Let’s see- it smells like the charcoal remains of a former fire. Like a barbecue without the meat.
No meat! There’s got to be some criminal offense here.
I’d better get my Detective Dog hat on.
What happened here?
Someone had a fire on my trails and didn’t invite me.
And I bet they had treats and goodies and stuff like hot dogs and s‘ mores.
And they didn’t invite me.
Wait a minute!
No wonder they didn’t invite me.
They’re not even supposed to have a fire on my trails – and even if they could, fire restrictions are in effect. No fires anywhere.
It’s really dry out here. My puddle hasn’t even shown itself in a long time.
I bet those people know that as Detective Dog – a law abiding citizen dog (well almost) – I would be required to turn them in if I discovered who they are.
And I certainly wouldn’t want my trails to burn up.
So I’m investigating this one for sure.
And as soon as I discover who they are they’d better watch out.
I’m going to gather up all my dog buddies and after we water down their fire, we’re going to water down those culprits too.
See if they ever try starting a fire on my trails again.

lol….many dogs are indeed smarter than irresponsible people who go around initiating fire because of stupidity

Karmami, people think it’s fun to have a campfire, but they wouldn’t think it was much fun anymore if they started a forest fire.

worse yet burn their own houses..or thosebof their love ones….stupid people …produce stupid actions…you are right..no much fun…but..do they really care ?

You better find these people, Bongo, before they start a fire out there!
June 17, 2013 at 3:56 pm
Marina, I’m going after them for sure. Those trails are pretty close to my house so I could be in double jeopardy if a fire started.

Fires are dangerous when it’s so dry. OMGoodness! Those fire guys are ….playing with fire. Really!! Duh!
Love and licks,
June 17, 2013 at 3:57 pm
Cupcake, those fire guys probably think they’re pretty cool, but they’ll really be cool after I douse them. Or maybe not, since I’ll be dousing them with warm water.

Foolish hoomins don’t know enough to not start fires where it’s dry…tsk tsk…hope you get a line on them soon Bongo and teach them what’s what
June 17, 2013 at 3:58 pm
Gizmo, I’m still investigating I’ll find them sooner or later. Hopefully while I still have my trails left.

They must not watch or read the news. Fire is dangerous when there is no rain. Stoopid peeps!
June 17, 2013 at 10:24 pm
Patricia, maybe those people think they’re invincible – like, only other people start forest fires.

Where is Smokey the Bear when you need him?
June 18, 2013 at 12:40 pm
Smokey the Beat with a big bucket of water.

does rye bread smell??
June 18, 2013 at 12:41 pm
Dalton, I think it has a wry kind of smell.
June 18, 2013 at 7:38 am
How dangerous!!! Those people should know that the dryness causes fire easily! We don’t wanna miss your beautiful trails pictures Bongo!
June 18, 2013 at 12:42 pm
Kevin, I know – it would be terrible if my trails burned up. I don’t know what those people were thinking.
June 18, 2013 at 9:21 am
HOT dogs???? YIKES!!!!
June 18, 2013 at 12:44 pm
Kolytyi, I would have been a hot dog if I’d been hanging around that fire.
June 18, 2013 at 12:46 pm
Yes! I hope there is no connection between those campfires and any dogs!

What about baked fish, Bongo 🙂
June 21, 2013 at 12:13 pm
Little Binky, baked fish sounds awesome but my person says until we get some rain here I’ve got to bake it in the oven. Hey person, can you turn the oven on now?

June 27, 2013 at 2:49 pm
Collies, I definitely had all of you in mind to help me with the watering.
