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.

Quail in a bush looking down

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.

Tag with chain hanging on a trail cairnWhat’s this?

There’s some kind of label on my trail cairn.

It’s never been here before.

I wonder what it’s supposed to do.

Maybe each trail cairn is going to get its own special tag.

Then when someone gives directions on my trails they don’t have to say, “Follow the cairns to the end of the trail.”

They could say, “Go past the red tagged cairn and turn left at the blue tagged cairn.”

That would make it so much easier to give directions.

Unless you forgot which tags were on which cairns.


If you told someone the wrong thing they might get really lost. They might end up at the trail that ends in a big hole instead of at the trail where they could climb a mountain like they really wanted to do.

Whoever put that tag on there needs to come up with something better.

But how am I going to tell them? I don’t even know who put that tag there.

Maybe if I sniff around I can find some clues.

Bongo sniffing trail cairn

I don’t know.

There’s been so many messages left here (including some of my old ones) that I don’t know if I’ll ever sort it all out.

Wait. What’s this?

This tag has another side.

Necklace on tag on cairn

The other side is a necklace.

And it says, “PASS IT ON!”

I’ve got it now.

This tag wasn’t left here to label the cairn – this necklace was left here for me.

So I could pass it on to the next one of my girlfriends that I see.

I wonder who my lucky girlfriend will be.

Julie and Bongo sniffing nosesWoo woo! I’ve got a new girlfriend. Her name is Julie and she loves to play with me.

Julie makes me feel like a puppy again.

Oh. Oops. Just a minute.

Collies, if you’re reading this can you distract Ginger so she doesn’t see this?

Maybe you can get a new hammock for Ginger your dad or something.

Whew! That’s taken care of. I wouldn’t want to upset Ginger.

Now where was I?

Oh yeah.

Julie has come up to me two different times on my trails and wants me to chase her.

I’m still trying to convince my person that she’ll be fine if she lets go of my leash for awhile, but I guess she still needs to hold on. Some kind of insecurity or something.

But Julie is cool. She didn’t go farther than my leash could reach.

And then – this is so romantic.

Julie and Bongo sniffing spots near each other

We stood near each other sniffing little patches of ground.

And before I knew it…

Julie and Bongo sniffing the same spot

we were sniffing the same piece of ground.

I can’t wait to go out on my trails again tomorrow.

But this time I need to come up with a plan to ditch my person.

Maybe I’ll give her two leashes – so when I take off after Julie she still has one to hold on to.

Bongo sniffing below a treeMy trails are filled with treasures, and some of them are going to make me rich.

So rich that I will be supplied with treats for life.

First I found a money tree, then I found pearls, and now diamonds!

These diamonds are small, so I’m checking carefully to make sure I’ve found them all.

Diamonds are valuable, so I can trade each one of them for a truckload of tasty treats.

Just look at these diamonds!

They’re scattered all over the ground around here.

Drops of clear pitch on the ground

Some diamond lover could use these to make a necklace, or a beautiful bracelet, or even a diamond ring.

Maybe I should keep some of these in case I want to give a ring to one of my girlfriends.

No, wait. Never mind. I’m sure any girlfriend that I have would prefer the treats to the diamonds. Besides, it would have to be something like an earring for any girlfriend of mine to be able to wear it.

Hey, what’s this?

I don’t believe it! Just what I was looking for.

Clear pitch shaped like an earring

A diamond earring!

I can give this to one of my girlfriends and she can wear it.

And it’s even sticky. What a bonus! It will stick right to her ear.

Which girlfriend should I give it to?

On second thought – would anyone like to trade an earring for some treats?

That way all my girlfriends will be happy.
