Cloud Adventures

Bongo on the trailI headed out on my trails looking for adventure again today.

I was hoping for something better than I had the last time I went looking for adventure.

Last time I got attacked by that dog named Clyde, and even though neither of us got hurt it wasn’t the most fun adventure I’d ever had.

So I thought maybe I’d look for something a little milder this time.

Well, I guess I found it.

Mild, that is.

I didn’t have a single adventure on my trails.

Maybe looking for mild is not such a good thing. Next time I’ll have to pump it up a little.

But wait! I might not have had any adventures, but somebody else was having adventures all over the place.

The clouds were going wild.

Windblown clouds

Sugarloaf rock and windblown clouds

Trees, clouds and sun peeking through

Circle of the sun showing through clouds

Circle of the sun through clouds framed by trees

How’s that for adventure?

Looking for Adventure

Bongo on the trail on a cloudy dayI needed something for my blog post so I headed out to my trails looking for adventure.

There’s always some potential adventure on my trails.

Well, I found it.

But you know what?

My person, who drives me nuts with all those pictures she takes – Did I say nuts? Nuts are good treats. Hey person, where’s the nuts?

Oh. I got off the track, didn’t I?

Well, my person, who is always taking pictures until it drives me bonkers, didn’t take any pictures of this adventure.

She’s failing on the job. I don’t know what’s wrong with her.

She even had her little camera with her.

She could have whipped it out and taken pictures.

But she didn’t.

So here’s what happened.

I was walking along my trails, minding my own business. I had my person attached to my leash so I could keep an eye on her, when I heard somebody yelling, “Clyde, come back here!”

Well, Clyde didn’t mind very well and he came running right over to me.

And Clyde started picking a fight with me.

I would have given Clyde what for but I had to protect my person.

Who knows what Clyde might have done with my person. He might have tried to steal her from me.

Clyde’s person came and attached Clyde to her leash so he couldn’t fight with me anymore.

And she said Clyde had never done that before.

Which got me thinking.

I am a famous blogging dog, and everybody knows that these are my trails.

I bet Clyde wanted to chase me off my trails and steal them from me.

I bet Clyde heard about my girlfriends that hang out on my trails and he wanted to steal them too.

From now on I’m going to be watching for Clyde.

And if he comes back I’m going to make sure my person takes a picture of him.

And then I’m going to hang it with a big Wanted sign underneath.

Day Two – No Blue

Bongo on the trail on a gray dayThis is the second day in a row with gray skies. That’s got to be some kind of record for here.

I really don’t mind the weather.

It’s not windy, and not too cold.

Actually a really good day for a walk on my trails.

The only problem is that nobody else seems to think so.

I didn’t meet a single person or dog on my walk today.


And without other people or dogs it’s kind of hard to have adventures sometimes.

So I had to look for something else adventurous.

I didn’t find much.

Purple berries against a gray sky

Some berries enjoying the gray day.

Mushroom with a face

And a mushroom with a face.

Well, I thought I saw a face on it, but my person had to enhance (is that an adventurous word – enhance?) the eyes so that you could see them too.

So much for adventures today.

Guess I’ll go take a nap.

Where’s My Adventure?

Dirt road, mountains, and skyMy person took off on an adventure this morning and left me at home with Scratchy.

This is really getting bad. I’m supposed to be the one having adventures, not my person.

And definitely not her camera.





Backlit clouds

It will be a bright day for sure when my person finally gets tired of that camera and takes me on adventures instead.

Red rocks and sky

Finally my person came back home and took me out on my trails.

Bongo in the wash

I looked all over my trails for some kind of adventure.

No luck.

No adventures anywhere.

I think my person used up all the adventures of the day.

This guy we found on my trails didn’t look like he was having any adventures either.

Plein Air artist

He was just standing there painting the cactus.

Maybe we can go find an adventure together.

Left Out of the Adventure

No Bongo AdventuresMy people went on an adventure last night and didn’t invite me – the dog who lives for adventures. I’m not even sure what kind of adventure they went on. A treasure hunt maybe?

Here’s what happened. My younger person left kind of late last night and said he was going back to that college place. I think maybe he said that so I wouldn’t try to go with him.

My person and I went into her bedroom and she turned out the lights. So far, so good. This happens almost every night around here.

But then, I heard that strange sound. The one that makes her pick up that little thing and talk to it. I’ve never been able to figure out what she’s doing – except that she ignores me when she’s talking to it. She hardly ever talks to that thing after she’s turned out the lights, but when she finished talking to it, she turned out the lights a second time.

But then you know what she did? She talked to that thing again and left the house and drove off in her car. And she didn’t take me!

Just me and Scratchy alone in the house – in the dark. This is not right.

My person was gone for a long time and it was starting to get light when I heard her car. I know she was on an adventure because she brought my younger person back with her. This college place he keeps talking about must be all made up.

My younger person slept for awhile and then left again in his little car. He must have lost the other one on the adventure. He’s still insisting that he’s going to that made up college place.

If my person talks to that thing again tonight, I’m blocking the door so she can’t get out without taking me with her. I’ve got to make sure they don’t lose another car in that black hole they call the college place.
