Treat on the Trail

Bongo and Layla meeting on the trailSomething great happened on my trails the other day.

I was walking along, minding my own business, on a part of my trails where hardly anybody else goes – when I saw her.

My girlfriend Layla.

I hadn’t seen Layla in a very long time.

Weeks, or maybe even months.

So I was really excited.


Some of my dog friends don’t like to play much, but Layla loves to play.

We ran, and jumped, and had a great time.

But after awhile it was time to get serious.

I’m not sure if I wore Layla out, or she didn’t like that serious part because she left me.

Layla, come back!

I guess I’ve blown it again.

The only ones that seem to stick around are the cats.

National Walk Your Dog Week

Bongo walking in a dry washWe’re right in the middle of it – and it’s one of the best weeks there is.

It means I get to go out for walks every day.

Wait a minute. I go out for walks almost every day anyway.

So what’s so special about this week?

I guess I’d better tell you what week it is.

It’s National Walk Your Dog Week.

And I’ve got to tell all you dogs out there that if you’re not taking your people for walks all the time you’re missing out on a lot of adventures.

My person says it’s good exercise for her and for me. I guess that’s okay.

But what’s more important are the messages I find on my trails from my trail dog buddies.

And the dogs and people I get to meet and greet.

By the way, I think I got a new girlfriend today. She was really cute and she wouldn’t leave me alone. Woo woo! More benefits of going out for walks.

If I didn’t go out for walks all the time my life would be boring.

I wouldn’t have adventures to tell you about.

So if I didn’t go for walks and have adventures you’d probably fall asleep when you read my blog.

It would be that boring.

It would probably be like reading a blog that Scratchy wrote.

Come to think of it, maybe I should start a National Walk Your Cat Week. Scratchy might have something interesting to say then.

Oh wait, never mind. He’d probably try to steal my blog.


National Walk Your Dog Week was founded by pet Lifestyle Expert & Animal Behaviorist Colleen Paige.            Sponsored by – Animal Miracle Foundation, and can be found on the web at

Homework at the Dog Park

Bongo carrying a Frisbee in his mouthI take everything back that I said about my person’s new camera. At least for now.

And here’s why.

My person’s photography class assignment for this week is “Motion.”

And who could come up with something more filled with motion than me?

So I got to go to the dog park today, where there’s lots of room to move.

And my person brought Frisbees and balls along – and her camera.

When we first got to the dog park there was one other dog hanging out. And it turned out to be my good buddy Pablo. I think my person planned that because she didn’t seem surprised.

But then my girlfriend Layla arrived. A regular dog party!

After I got done sniffing around I had to get to work. And it was the most fun work I’ve done in a long time. I guess it will work better if I just show you.

And they even gave me a place to wash off afterwards.

Morning Treat

Bongo on the runFor the second day in a row I took my person for a walk in the morning – before that nasty thunder starts showing up.

And I’m finding there are extra benefits to going on walks this time of day.

Not only is it calmer and quieter – with no wind and no booming thunder – but this is the time that some of my friends are taking their people for walks.




Like my girlfriend Layla.

I hadn’t seen Layla in a long time and it was great fun romping around with her.

But since it had been so long she seemed to be a little shy at first.

I had to start out with a gentle nose kiss.

But soon Layla warmed up to me again.

And I got some really good loves.

Woo woo!
