Manzanita Mystery

Bongo in front of the bush with berriesMy trails seem to be full of mysteries lately.

I’ve been checking for clues everywhere.

So while I was checking for clues on the last mystery, I discovered a new mystery.

A Detective Dog’s work is never done.

Detective Dog

I might have to do some modeling and have my person take some new Detective Dog pics before I wear my hat out.

Besides, I always get extra treats when I model.

Okay, back to the mystery.

It’s a Manzanita mystery.

Because baby Manzanita berries always start out green.

Manzanita Berries

Like this.

And most of the new berries on my trails are coming out green.

They usually get some rosy color later, but when they first appear they’re green.

But I found some berries that just had to be different.

As a matter of fact, even their blossoms were different.

Pink Manzanita Blossoms

They had pink blossoms.

All the blossoms on the other bushes were white.

And when these berries popped out they weren’t green at all.

Red manzanita berries

They were red.

Red manzanita berries

So I started investigating to find out why these berries, and these only, were different than the rest.

And you know what I discovered when I looked around the other side of the berries?

Red and green manzanita berries

The berries are red on one side – and green on the other.

These berries are not so different after all.

It’s all a front.

And the Clues Lead to…

Bongo and a rock pileI was walking along the wash on my trails today, like I do almost every day – when I saw it.

Rock piles have been showing up everywhere and here was yet another one.

One of these days every rock on my trails will be part of a pile.

This might cause a serious problem.

If one of those rock piles falls over, a lizard might get smashed.

Or a rabbit.

Or maybe even a dog!

I decided I’d better get on my Detective Dog hat…

.

And look for clues.

And I found them.

Clues, that is.

I discovered that I’d better watch my step…

An eye drawn on a rock

Because someone is keeping an eye on me.

And they obviously know my secret identity.

I found an S on my trails the other day…

S's drawn on a rock

And now here are more.

They obviously know that I’m Super Dog.

But they also know…

A star and crescent moon drawn on a rock

That I’m the star of the show.

And here it is.

The final clue.

I know everybody’s been waiting anxiously to find out who’s been building all these rock piles.

Strange animal face drawn on a rock

Now all I have to do is find this culprit.

A New Clue

Rock piles and BongoFor the last couple days I’ve been investigating a strange phenomenon on my trails.

The emergence (I’m not sure what that word means, but it sounds good.) of rock piles everywhere on my trails.

I’m sure that somebody has been turning boys and other living creatures into piles of rocks.

But I haven’t been able to figure out who is doing it.

And it’s really kind of scary, I mean, whoever it is could turn me into a pile of rocks at any time.

And if I don’t know who’s doing it, I might not see them coming.

.

But today I came across another clue.

While I was out investigating…

Wait, wait!

I can’t do any investigations without my Detective Dog hat.

Bongo looking cool with his Detective Dog hat on

There, that’s better.

Like I said, while I was out investigating I came across another clue.

I still don’t know who the culprit is, but now I know how he disguises himself.

Because I stepped back to see if I could get a different perspective (Wow! This Detective Dog hat really increases my vocabulary.) on things and I saw something I hadn’t seen before.

Small rainbow near the rock piles

Do you see it?

That culprit is still hanging about.

Look closer. He’s there.

That culprit is the one disguised as a rainbow.

Don’t ever trust a rainbow again – at least not one that hangs around rock piles.

Big, Big Dogs

Horse shoe prints in the dustWhat a day I had!

First, I saw these strange prints on my trails.

They don’t look like people prints and they’re certainly not from any animal I know.

I saw prints like these once, a long time ago.

And I never did figure out what they were.

I started to head home to get my Detective Dog hat and figure out this mystery when I came across another clue.

.

Bongo checking out horse droppings

Hmmm. This stuff tastes kind of good. I wonder where it came from.

My person wouldn’t let me finish the stuff off – and I guess it would have destroyed all the evidence anyway – so I continued on my way to get my hat.

When I saw them.

The biggest dogs I have ever seen in my life!

Two horses coming down the trail

And they were coming right at me!

They passed right by me on my trails.

And there were people riding on their backs.

My person better never try to ride on my back.

Oh oh. Here come some more of those dogs.

Two more horses coming down the trail

Hey, where are those big dogs going?

Do you believe it? They just walked by me.

Horses walking away

And they didn’t even stop to say “Hi.”

Bongo trying to chase after the horses

Hey big dogs, come back here!

I’m not through with you yet.

***

This is terrible!

Not only did those big dogs just walk away…

Bongo's leg with cactus stickers in it

They made a cactus try to hold me in place so I couldn’t follow them.

I’ll take care of those dogs alright.

They won’t get away with ignoring me on my own trails.

Helicopter in the air

I’m sending the helicopter squad out to pick them up.

Missing Person

Detective DogYesterday my investigation was a bust.

I guess even Detective Dog can’t be perfect all the time.

But today I have another investigation.

I’m sure I’ll get to the bottom of this one.

You see, there is a personless dog that sometimes runs around my neighborhood.

.

.

.

.

 

Brown dog near a road

All the dogs in my neighborhood have people that they take on walks with them, except this poor dog.

I really have to admire this dog though.

I mean, how many dogs would go on walks if it wasn’t for needing to give their people exercise?

Giving your people their exercise is such a good motivator, but this dog goes on walks by himself.

He even does some jogging.

But where are this dog’s people? Why aren’t they letting him take them on walks?

That’s what I need to investigate.

I almost had an answer right from the dog’s mouth.

I saw him a ways off on my trails and then he started following me home.

I was all ready to befriend him. He really looks like he could use some friends.

But my person totally blew it for me.

Because every time she walks toward this dog he runs in the opposite direction.

My person is not doing a very good job.

I think I may have to fire her and hire myself a new assistant.

I bet this dog needs a job.

Rock Fruit

Red rocks in a treeThis is strange.

I’ve never seen rock fruit before.

I thought these trees just grew little berries.

But how else could these rocks have gotten here?

Maybe a really big storm could blow rocks into trees.

But we haven’t had any storms like that lately.

I guess I should investigate.

.

Time for my Detective Dog hat.

My first investigation will be how to reach those rocks so I can check them out.

I’ve got to see if they’re really some kind of fruit that looks like rocks – or if they’re really just rocks like they look like.

Maybe I can find a big rock to stand on – or some branches.

Oh, wait. This is too hard.

Do I really care what those rocks are doing?

I think I’ll do something else instead.

I’m going to give you something to investigate.

So here it is.

Here’s your investigation.

Find me in this picture.

Where’s Bongo?

Finding Clues

Bongo looking cool with his Detective Dog hat onI’ve got some investigating to do.

I’ve seen bits and pieces of strange things on my trails the last few days so I’m going to start out right.

I’ve got my Detective Dog hat on already.

I’m ready to go.

So here’s what’s happening.

There’s a spot just off of one of my trails that has strange rocks piled up around a small clearing.

.

But my person won’t let me go investigate that spot because when we walk by there are people guarding it.

I’m not sure if they’re really people.

They’re probably aliens or something.

But since they’re guarding that place I’ve got to see if I can find some clues to what that place is somewhere else on my trails.

They had to get to that spot somehow, and that means they’ve probably left some evidence.

I’ve found some strange smells, but for some reason people won’t accept smells as evidence.

If they’d only improve their noses.

So I searched and searched for something my person could see.

And finally I found it.

Way off on a little side trail that hardly anyone ever uses, there it was.

Bongo by a pile of rocks and sticks

Whoever piled up those strange rocks in that other place must pile up rocks wherever they go.

Yup, they’ve been here alright.

Pile of rocks and sticks

Now that I know where they’ve been I’ve just got to figure out who they are.

But until I get to the bottom of this –

Don’t stop and talk to any aliens.
