Find a Rainbow Day

Bongo on the kitchen floorToday is Find a Rainbow Day.

That means I’d better go find a rainbow.

We did have a rare occurrence last night.

Rain.

So there must be a rainbow out there somewhere.

I didn’t think that a rainbow would be hiding in my house, so I took my person out for a walk.

It was a struggle getting her away from the computer, but I finally convinced her we had to go.

There were things to do and rainbows to see.

So I sniffed a few bushes to see if I could catch the rainbow scent.

Bongo Sniffing Bushes

Nothing there.

I checked behind a bush.

Still no luck.

Maybe there’s a rainbow hanging out with the flowers.

That seems like a logical place for a rainbow to be.

I don’t know where these rainbows hide themselves.

I’m having no luck finding one.

No rainbows around the trees either.

How can I celebrate Find a Rainbow Day if I can’t find one?

I finally gave up and decided to head back home for a nap.

Maybe I can dream about rainbows.

I headed into the house and I happened to look up at the sky.

Rainbow, clouds, and moon

What is that rainbow doing up there?

Girlfriend Hunting

Bongo looking around the dry wash on his trailsHmm.

Something tells me it’s girlfriend looking season.

I haven’t seen any of my girlfriends in a long time.

I wonder if any of them are out here.

But I’m not the only one looking for a girlfriend.

At least we won’t be competing with each other.

I don’t think my kind of girls will care about that guy – and vice versa.

Quail in a bush

Normally the quail around here hang out on the ground hiding under the bushes.

But this time of year some of the male quails (did I just make a rhyme?) hang out in trees and make a loud calling sound.

I guess they think they’ll attract the girls that way.

I’m not sure what a girl would see in that, but to each her own.

Maybe they don’t get any girls because sometimes they’re hanging out in trees like this way into the summer.

But this one might be a little smarter than most.

He’s staying closer to the ground – unlike some who get in the top of a tall tree.

And now I know he’s figured it out.

He’s finally looking down at where the girls are hanging out.

Maybe I could learn something from him.

I’ve got to go figure out where my girlfriends have gone.

Mystery Bush

Bongo by a bushYou see this bush behind me? Well, I told my person she wasn’t allowed to post any pictures of it unless she found out what it was.

I figured I was safe. I knew she didn’t know the name of this bush and I figured she’d never find out. Unless she went out of her way to find a plant specialist to tell her, that is.

But I was wrong. That’s a really hard thing to be. After all, I’m Bongo – and Bongo is never wrong.

Except for this time.

My person got on the internet and looked at all kinds of plant pictures until she found it. The Sugar Sumac. That’s what it’s called. And now I have to let her post all her pictures.

We’ve been watching these bushes for a long time.

Way last winter they got these little pink buds all over them.

But if you don’t believe these were like this way last winter I can prove it.

When the weather started getting warmer all the color faded out of those buds. We figured we’d seen the end of them.

But then something extraordinary happened.

Well, maybe not so extraordinary but I wanted this to sound dramatic.

Okay person, you got your way. Can you put the camera away now?

Where to Go?

Yuccas are Mean

Yuccas are Mean

A manly dog needs something to lift his leg against. A bush, a tree, a fire hydrant – it doesn’t really matter what it is, but he’s gotta have something. My back yard used to have some plants growing in it that weren’t quite bushes, but I could pretend. They were close enough to being bushes that I could do my business on them and feel good about it. But my person cut them down and took them away.

You know what I have left? Yucca plants. You know what a yucca is? It’s a bush shaped thing full of pointy things that are a cross between a leaf and a spear. Every time I get near one of those yucca plants I get poked. I move a little bit, and get poked again. When you gotta go now it’s a real challenge to find a position where you can lift your leg without getting poked. It usually takes at least three or four tries. Ouch! I hope my person brings back those bushes.
