Pointing the Wrong Way

Bongo on the trail looking backNo no no, person.

You’re doing it all wrong.

You’re pointing your camera the wrong way.

You’re supposed to be pointing it at me.

.

.

.

.

 

What are you doing anyway?

There’s nothing interesting over there.

I’m not sure why, but I have this sudden urge to howl.

Big Mistake

Bongo on the trailBoy did I make a big mistake today.

A really big one.

Here’s what happened.

I took my person for a walk and we got to the place where we usually turn around and head back.

It was a really nice day and I wasn’t ready to head back yet.

So I kept on going.

Up the dry wash.

Usually my person won’t let me go further, but today she did.

And that was the biggest mistake of all.

***

Because you know what my person did then?

Prickly pear cactus surrounded by little yellow flowers

She found flowers.

Red Penstemon

And not just a few flowers.

Purple daisy

She found red ones, and purple ones, and yellow ones.

Bongo sniffing something behind the flowers

Can we go now, person?

This is getting really boring.

Look Over There

Bongo looking away from a bunch of wildflowersHey person, look over there.

No, no person.

.

You’re looking in the totally wrong direction.

Bongo with a bunch of yellow wildflowers

Don’t look over here.

It’s over there I want you to look.

***

I knew it!

Yellow flowers

I just can’t keep my person and her camera away from flowers.

Yellow flower

Does anybody want a well used camera?

I’m giving one away.

As soon as I can wrestle it away from my person.

Hanging Out

Bongo in the yardIt seems like every time I take my person for walks she gets her camera out.

She’s always making me wait while she takes pictures of flowers and stuff.

It’s frustrating.

I’ve got places to go and things to sniff – and all my person wants to do is stay in one spot and take pictures.

But when it comes to my yard, I’m not allowed to hang out there.

I get to go do my business and then I have to come right back in.

I don’t know what my person’s problem is.

Just because I jumped the fence once or twice.

I only do it when I’m bored.

***

But I finally figured it out.

You see, a thistle popped up in my yard and there aren’t any thistles on my trails.

So when my person was out pulling weeds I hid it from her.

And it worked.

Because that thistle bloomed and just like I knew she would…

My person headed out with her camera.

And I got to hang out in the yard.

Enough Already

Bongo and a hedgehog cactus in bloomWhat is going on here?

These hedgehog cactus should have been done blooming a long time ago.

They’re torturing me, because my person won’t stop taking pictures of them.

Why don’t they just go away?

I keep thinking they’re gone and then some more of this colorful stuff pops up on my trails.

C’mon person. Haven’t you taken enough pictures of these cacti?

.

.

Hedgehog cactus in bloomThere she goes again.

Hedgehog cactus blossom

And again.

Okay person, that’s enough.

I’m taking you home now.

You’re going to wear out your camera.

Person?

Hey person, what are you doing?

You are so misbehaved.

You’ve got to stop wandering off like that.

Oh no, look at this!

My person is so obsessed with her camera…

Prickly pear blossoms with an ant inside

…that she’s started taking pictures of ants.

Person, wouldn’t it have made more sense to wait until you had that ant in full view before you took the picture of it?

Where there’s Smoke…

Bongo in his kennel chewing on his frogHey, how come I don’t get to go?

That’s not fair.

That big camera always wins out over me.

It’s not like I’m gonna break your camera or anything.

I won’t yank on the leash and pull you over on top of the camera.

Besides, if you fell on your camera wouldn’t it be your fault?

So what are you taking pictures of?

Smoke?

That’s not very interesting.

You should be taking pictures of me.

There’s a fire?

Where?

You can’t leave me in dog jail if there’s a fire.

What if I get stuck in here and I can’t get out?

Those cats would leave the house without me.

You know how they are.

Are you sure it’s not that close?

.

Okay, I’ll look at the pictures.

Coffeepot Rock with smoke in the distance

Yeah, I guess it is far away.

But what if it comes closer?

Smoke from fire in the distance

See, I told you this was gonna come closer.

Let me out of this dog jail and grab onto my leash!

I’ll protect you.

Oh, and leave your big camera at home.

***

P.S. My person says we are safe from this fire, but asks for prayer for the people who have been evacuated from their homes, and for all the firefighters who are fighting this fire. This is the Slide Fire in Oak Creek Canyon in Arizona between Sedona and Flagstaff.

The Visitor

Bongo in dog jail looking sadI’m not sure who was up to the most mischief today.

My person, or the visitor.

You see, my person saw a visitor in our driveway today and you know what she did?

She came in, got her camera, and locked me in jail!

You hear that?

She locked me in dog jail.

I wanted to visit the visitor, and she locked me in dog jail.

.

 

And then she went out to take pictures.

And what was that visitor doing in my yard?

And what was it doing hanging around waiting for my person to get her camera?

We’ve seen a couple snakes on my trails lately.

And my person used some excuse about them hiding before she could get her camera out, and she wouldn’t take any pictures.

But this snake – in my yard – hangs around waiting until my person gets back outside with her camera.

Without me.

I think my person and that snake had this all planned out.

Sand snake

Just wait till I get my paws on my person’s camera.

We’ll see who visits my yard then.
