The Perfect Garden

Bongo digging with a Frisbee in his mouthThis is cool!

My person is not using her garden at all.

That means it’s mine now.

If my person doesn’t want to plant anything I will.





Bongo still digging with a Frisbee in his mouth

Just a little bit deeper.

I don’t understand why my person doesn’t want to use this garden.

It’s digging up way easier than normal.

Usually the dirt is hard as a rock and no fun to dig in at all.

This is great!

Bongo digging with the Frisbee in his hole

I think that will do it.

I’ll just plant my Frisbee right here.

Bongo laying his Frisbee in his hole

On second thought, maybe that’s not the right place.

I think I’ll move it a little.

I’ve got to get it in just the right spot for it to grow.

Bongo watching the Frisbee in the hole


Now I’ll just wait.

I should be seeing some new little Frisbees sprouting anytime.

Bongo has a disgusted look and the Frisbee is still in the hole

Something’s wrong here!

This isn’t right!

Not one little Frisbee has started sprouting yet.

Hey person, what did you do to your garden?

It’s all messed up.

National Mole Day

Drawing of a moleToday is National Mole Day. I’m not a mole but I thought it might be good to support other animoles.

And the theme this year is AniMOLE Kingdom. That includes me too – I think.

I do have one thing in common with moles.



We both like to dig.

Bongo digging in the yard

But we don’t have any moles living around here, so I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to celebrate.

It’s kind of hard to have a mole party when there aren’t any moles to party with.

Maybe I could change the day to National Gopher Day.

We have lots of gophers around here and they like to dig holes too.

Bongo checking out a gopher hole

Now all I’ve got to do is gather up some gophers and start the party.

If I can find any, that is.

I’ve never seen a gopher.

They’re always hiding in their holes.

Maybe I’ll go dig a few out. That sounds like fun.

I’ll be back in awhile. Once I’ve got some gophers.


Boy, those gophers are sure hard to come by.

What? Person, what do you mean I don’t need any gophers?

This day isn’t about digging moles?

It’s about chemistry moles?

You mean moles that put on white jackets and play around with test tubes?

It has to do with molecules?

Molecules don’t dig holes – or play with test tubes. They’re too little.

I don’t get it.

The gophers are gone and there’s too many moles.

Think I’ll just go dig a hole.

Mysterious Hole

Bongo checking out a hole in the groundSince we’ve gotten lots of rain here, the ground on my trails which is usually hard as rocks, has softened up.

It’s become so soft that somebody decided to dig a big hole – right next to my trail.

This hole was awfully close to some cactus so I thought I’d better investigate to see who might have done such a thing.

A few sniffs here – and a few sniffs there.

Hmmm. There are so many smells around here. It’s hard to figure who might have dug this.

What? Huh? What are you saying, person?

You think I dug this hole?

Bongo with a suspecting look

Where would you possibly have come up with an idea like that?

I’ve been dragging you around on this leash. I haven’t been out of your sight for a minute.

I don’t know when you think I would have had a chance to dig this without you seeing me.

Besides, I’m not much of a digger.

I bet you can’t even think of the last time you saw me digging a hole.

Bongo digging in the yard

Oh. Well, that was an exception.

That Frisbee was brand new and I really needed to bury it.

The Bone is Back

Bongo found his bone from yesterdayHey person, you know that bone I found? The one you made me drop yesterday?

Well it’s still here.

This is one stroke of luck.





Bongo picking up his bone

I think I’d better bury this thing again before somebody else finds it.

Bongo digging a hole

Okay bone. You’ll be safe in here.

Bongo about to bury the bone in the hole

This is really hard work covering up this bone.

I wish I had a shovel so I didn’t have to use my nose.

Bongo covering the bone up

Person, what do you mean we have to go now?

I worked really hard to bury that bone. I’ve got to dig it up now and make sure it’s safe.

I don’t want to go yet. I’m not done digging.

You’re going to make all that work I did go to waste.

I bet there’s nobody that works harder than I just did, and you’re going to turn it into a waste.

Ant dragging a large tuft of hair

What’s that ant doing carrying that tail around with him?

Working harder than me?

No way.

I carry my tail around with me all the time. It’s no work at all.

Bury the Bone

Bongo burying a boneA couple days ago I found a bone on my trails.

And my person said, “Drop it.”

So today when I found that bone again I decided to bury it.

I dug a hole under a tree…




Bongo putting the bone in the ground

and I dropped it in.

Then I buried it.

I don’t have a shovel…

Bongo covering the bone with his nose

so I buried it with my nose.

It was hard work, but I got that bone covered up.

Bongo checking to see if the bone is still there

But now I can’t see that bone anymore. And I can’t smell it as well, either.

I’d better dig it up and make sure it’s still there.

Bongo found the bone still in the hole

Yup, it’s here.

Guess I’d better take it and put it in a safe place.

Bongo with the bone in his mouth

What? Drop it?

What do you mean, drop it?

Bongo looking at the bone on the ground

I worked hard for this bone, person.

I dropped it, but I’m holding you responsible if anything happens to it.

First Flower

Little Purple FlowerYou see this? This little flower here? It’s the first flower of the season.

Not very impressive, is it?

But this little flower means something that I don’t like to think about. It means that soon there will be more flowers.

I don’t think much of flowers. You can’t eat them. I don’t care what they look like.

But for some reason my person cares.

And she’s always getting her camera out to take pictures of them.

Hey person, here I am. Take some pictures of me.

But no. When those flowers are out that’s all she seems to care about.

And all I want to do is go for a walk.

Maybe I should take up gardening. Maybe if I put some of those flowers in our yard my walks wouldn’t be constantly interrupted by the camera.

My person could take pictures of my lovely garden instead.

I’m good at digging.

Bongo digging in the yard

And I’m good at watering too.

Now all I need are a few seeds.
