Eat Beans Day

Bongo with a can of beansToday is Eat Beans Day.

I was so excited when I heard that.

I mean, any holiday that has to do with food is okay by me.

I got out my can of beans and was ready to go when my person had to spoil the fun.

She reminded me of the last time I celebrated Eat Beans Day.

It wasn’t even on the right day so it shouldn’t count.

But I suddenly didn’t have an appetite for beans anymore.


And I’d better warn you about what can happen on Eat Beans Day.

Here’s what happened to me.


Who Spilled the Beans?


Beans on the CarpetHey person, look at this pretty pattern I made on the carpet. Doesn’t it look nice?

What? I’m in trouble for that? No way!





I didn’t do it person. Honest, I swear. Scratchy did it. Look, he’s standing right over there. I just saw it and thought it was pretty. You know how much he likes to go counter surfing.

What do you mean, most of the beans are missing? I don’t know what happened to them. Did you check under the furniture? Maybe Scratchy ate them.

I bet he could. I bet Scratchy could eat that many beans if he really put his mind to it. Can we go for a walk now? I really feel like I need to go for a walk.

Aaaahhhhh! That feels much better. Relief!

What!? You found the missing beans? Oh no!

No Leaves

Bongo in a pile of fallen mesquite beansThis time of year most people – and dogs – have piles of leaves in their yard.

Some people think they’re a chore because they have to rake them up and get rid of them.

But kids and dogs think they’re great fun.

At least I think they do.

I don’t have one tree in my yard or on my trails that drop their leaves.

Not one.

The juniper tree drops berries, and the pine trees drop needles – but not one tree drops leaves.

I’ve always wanted to run and jump into a big pile of leaves, but it’s something I’ve never gotten to do.

So while I was out walking on my trails today I found that my trails do have something to offer.

Maybe not any leaves, but I guess this is the next best thing.


Mesquite tree beans.

Piles of them.

Maybe if I add the piles together they’ll be big enough to jump in.

I’m not sure they’ll have the crunch that freshly fallen leaves have.

But there is something they do have, and maybe this makes them even better than a pile of leaves.

These beans smell really good.

Hey, we even have one of these trees in my yard.

I think I’ll gather up some beans and bring them inside.

Beans or Corn?

Bongo SniffingI decided to do a test the other day. Awhile back I ate a bunch of dried beans. They tasted pretty good, but it took me two days to get rid of them. It was kind of rumbly in my tummy. Recently my person gave me the chance to compare them with something else.

She had some supplies left from her Sunday school class in a bag in her room. Most of it was stuff I didn’t care about, but there was one thing in there that had an interesting smell to it. Not a strong smell, but still interesting. My person must have forgotten it was there.

I waited until my people were out of the house and then searched through her bag and found it. A cup full of unpopped popcorn. I quickly pulled it out of the bag and spread it across the floor so I could taste it at my leisure.

I have to admit that it wasn’t as good as the beans. And I’ll still rank dog treats way above either.
