Turkey Trail

Bongo on the trail with red rocks and blue sky in the backgroundI don’t mean to make all my friends jealous who live in different places with lousy weather but – yes I do. I’m going to make you jealous.

Because we had the most perfect Thanksgiving Day ever.

There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the temperature was pleasant.

The parking lot at my trails was so full that cars spilled out onto the street – even as far as my house.

Every two minutes it seemed, my person was pulling me aside so people could pass.

I did get to get loves from one little boy.

His face was at the perfect height for kissing.


But something was missing from my trails.

After all, it was Thanksgiving so I figured there should be some turkeys running around somewhere.

Bongo sniffing and not noticing the turkey

So I started sniffing around to see if I could catch a turkey scent.

I’ve never seen a turkey on my trails, but you’d think at least one would show up on Thanksgiving.

Bongo in a dry wash and looking away from the turkey

I thought the dry wash might be a good place to go.

Not many people or dogs go here so I figured if a turkey was around it might be brave enough to show itself.

Bongo at a bend in the dry wash and still not seeing the turkey

Here turkey, turkey!

Come on out. It’s just me.

You’re safe here.

Bongo in the dry wash and still missing the turkey

I’m not having any luck finding turkeys.

Either they’re really good at hiding, or there just aren’t any around.

Bongo ready to head home - still missing the turkey

I give up. Guess I’ll head back home.

I hope my younger person didn’t eat all the turkey in the fridge.

Toss the Ball

Bongo and ScratchyYay! My person is coming back from Indiana tonight. It’s a good thing because my younger person is going away for the weekend. If my person wasn’t coming home she would make my younger person stay home with me – and then he’d probably be mad at me.

In the meantime Scratchy and I are standing watch, waiting for my person to get home. I can’t believe Scratchy cares, but here he is sitting next to me and waiting. I’ve got my ball ready for my person to toss. Scratchy, maybe you should get a piece of yarn or something. Actually, never mind. I don’t think our person can toss balls and twirl yarn at the same time. She may be good, but I don’t think she’s that good. At least she said she wasn’t that good and I want all the ball tossing time I can get.
