Outside the Trail

15 Oct

Bongo sniffing in the bushesMy person was dinking around with her camera again, so to pass the time I started sniffing.

And I found a real treat.

Just a little ways off the trail I found another trail.

Not a people trail, but a trail just the same.

And this trail had some really great smells on it.

Smells that I don’t usually find on my regular trails.

Which goes to show you that if you sniff outside the trail, you’re likely to come up with some great ideas – I mean some great smells.

I hope my person messes around with her camera for a long time. I want to get my fill of what’s here.

Oh no, she’s done already. That wasn’t long enough.

Hey person, come over this way. There’s a trail here too.

What do you mean, there’s not a trail? There is too.

See, it connects up over here to this other trail. The one that goes down into the wash.

Try it, you’ll like it.

My person is just no fun at times.

Bongo being pulled back to the trail

She made me leave my secret smell stash…

And plod down the regular trails.

Just wait till she finds an off trail treasure of her own someday.

I’m going to yank my leash so hard she flies.

    But Bongo what if your person only had so much time for your stroll today?

      Kimberly, that’s what my person always says – well, mostly always. She always seems to be too busy to go on a longer walk. I think she’s just getting lazy. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Snorts. Take it easy on the human my friend. You yanking her leash might not turn out the way you want it. Trust me, I’ve pushed buttons here at the Hotel Thompson. And sometimes, they weren’t good buttons to push – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      Bacon, I thought my person might enjoy flying. I mean, she likes flying in airplanes. This would be a lot cheaper.

        So true. And hey you could even do it first class – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Ah, you don’t want a flying person, Bongo, do you?!!! There must be another way to convince her though…

      Marina, maybe I could offer my person some treats. That always works for me. I know where there’s a stash of old bones on my trails – I wonder if that would work.

    Secret trails are always the best…

      Agata, it’s fun finding trails that hardly anybody else knows about. My person seems to have an issue with the bushes and brambles though.

    You’ll have to go back and check it out tomorrow! Woooowooooooo!

      Good idea Ku. There might be some new messages there.

    Your person is a lot like Mom. She doesn’t think we should walk back behind the dumpster. I’m pretty sure I saw a macaroni noodle on the ground back there. We’re missing all the fun!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, I don’t have any dumpsters on my trails, but that sounds like a great place to go. Can you distract your mom and sneak back there?

    Oh, no! Sweet Bongo we hope your person will take you back soon and you can spend more time at your secret smell stash. Hugs and nose kisses

      Chancy and Mumsy, I’m hoping so too. I usually don’t like when my person spends so much time with her camera, but now I’m hoping she finds something to take pictures of right near all the best smells. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    Your person just can’t help not having a good sniffer. You’ll just have to keep trying to help her.

      Diane and Lola, my person doesn’t know what she’s missing out on.

    Looking a bit stubborn in that last picture, Bongo.

      Patricia, I didn’t want to go back that way after finding a whole new trail.

    Make sure you have her camera to paw to catch her flying!!

    • Bongo

      October 16, 2013 at 12:33 pm

      Dalton, I’m getting the camera ready. Now I just have to find the perfect moment to send her flying.

    That new trail sounds very interesting! Besides it has great smell on it? Wow….I wish I could smell it, too……. 🙂

      Kevin, you would love the smells on my trail. I wish you could come and have a sniffing party with me.
