They’re Back

Bongo on the trailThey’re back.

They haven’t been hanging out on my trails for a long time.

But they’ve come back.

And that’s not good.

They’re not welcome on my trails.

Not ever.

I might have to go after them.

Find them and tell them to stay off my trails.

I bet I could get some of my dog friends to help.

And some of my people friends too.

Nobody likes them around.

They’re always up to no good.

And all it would take is a little bit of thoughtfulness.

A tiny bit of extra work.


But no, that’s too much for them.

I guess you can’t expect much from such ugly creatures.

These litter bugs are never going to amount to anything.

Guess I’d better check for clues as to where these litter bugs are hiding.

Oh wait, I forgot something.

Lazy Litterbugs

Bongo looking cool with his Detective Dog hat onIt’s been a long time since I’ve put on my Detective Dog hat, but it’s time to do it.

You see, there have been some litter bugs on my trails lately and they’re dropping strange things.

Most of the time these strange things are only a few yards from the trailhead where the garbage can is. Which means that there is a serious problem with lazy litterbugs on my trails.

And another thing is that these pieces of litter are really small. They could easily fit into someone’s pocket. I bet several of them could fit into someone’s pocket.

But I guess I understand why no one wants to put them in their pocket when they’re through with them.

They stink really bad. So bad that I won’t go near them with my nose. Which makes it really hard to do an investigation.

How can I investigate if I can’t sniff around?

So why would anybody want these stinky things in the first place?

Anything that’s too stinky to stick in your pocket is definitely too stinky to carry around with you. People should leave them at home, or the store, or wherever it is that they got them.

That would solve two problems. No litter and no stink.

But maybe that’s not such a good idea after all. Because if those things weren’t here then I wouldn’t have anything to investigate.

And that would put Detective Dog out of a job.

Looking for Litter Bugs

Bongo Looking for Litter BugsWhere are they? I know I heard them talking. I even caught a glimpse of them, but now they’re not here.

Where did they go?

I saw them, I know I did. Those litter bugs that were here the other day. The ones whose trash I had to carry to the garbage can.

I’ve got to find them and give them what for. They even left some more trash behind.



Bongo Looking for Litter Bugs

They’ve got to be hiding around here somewhere. I bet they saw me coming and knew they were in for it. As soon as I find them I’m turning them in to the Litter Police – after I give them what for, that is.


I’ve looked everywhere and I can’t find them anywhere. I guess they’re better at hiding themselves than they are at hiding their litter.

I’d better head home and look for them another day.

Litter Bugs

I know they’re out there somewhere.

Trash Trooper

Bongo Looking for CluesToday my person grabbed some plastic bags as we headed out to my trails. Not those skimpy little doggie bags. These were grocery bags.

I wasn’t sure what she was thinking, and since she had her hands full I made sure I got tangled in my leash a lot.

It wasn’t until we got nearly to the end of our walk that I realized what she was doing with those bags. And it was time for me to get to work. I hope she brought my Detective Dog hat along – because somebody has been hanging out in my wash and leaving their litter behind.

Bongo Investigating

Time for me to start investigating.

Trash in the Bushes

I even found trash way in the bushes.

I bet this bush will talk.

While I was busy investigating my person picked the trash up. I was ready to head home to sort out the clues.

Bongo not willing to carry trash bag

What do you mean, I’m supposed to carry this?

Bongo Looking Around for Someone Else

But I’m Detective Dog. I’ve got clues to sort out. There must be someone else.

Tree Litterer

Bongo looking at something in a treeThere is something really strange hanging from that tree over there. I’ve never seen a piece of fruit with a shape like that.

I’m concerned. I’ve been finding litter on my trails lately. My person and I have been taking the litter and throwing it away. Now it looks like someone is hanging the litter from trees.

This is getting to be a serious litter war. These litterers are not only trying to see who can leave the most litter, but they are trying to see who’s litter will last the longest. They’re putting it in places where it’s not easy to pick up and throw away.

I don’t think I can even reach that tree litter. I’ll have to jump pretty high. I might even have to get my person to help me with it.

I’d better check this out a little closer. Maybe that will give me a clue as to who left it here. If I find the guilty litterer I’m going to give him what for for sure.

Hey, wait a minute! This is really strange.

You know what this is? It’s a bunch of seeds.

Bird Seed Hanger

Why would anyone want to hang seeds from a tree? If someone wants to plant seeds they should put them in the ground.

If they leave those seeds here the birds will get them before they can sprout.

Litter Bugs

Bongo checking out litterI am so upset. My trails are usually kept really clean, but the other day I found that stuff left by the crack creatures – and now this. And there aren’t even any cracks around this part of my trails.

So who can be leaving this stuff?

They’re obviously friends of the crack creatures – or – maybe they’re not.

Maybe they’re having a littering duel. To see who can litter the most.

This is terrible! This means I could be finding more litter on my trails. I’m going to have to do something about this.

I know! I’ll get one of those litter bugs. Or maybe a whole army of litter bugs. They get rid of litter, don’t they?

They could go wandering along my trails and eat all the litter they find. The way things are going lately they would find plenty to eat.

There’s just one thing I still have to figure out.

Once the crack creatures and those other guys run out of litter to leave on my trails – what do I do with the litter bugs?

Creatures in Cracks

Teabag on the ground and Bongo with his nose in a crack in the rockCheck this out. I found some really strange things on my trails. A plastic bag thingy and a metal box. And both of them are close to cracks in the rocks.

You know what that means. It means there are creatures that live deep down in those cracks, and they’re cleaning house. They’re moving stuff out that they don’t want any more.

Someone needs to tell those crack creatures about littering. Just because they don’t want something in their house doesn’t mean they have to leave it cluttering up my trails.

After all, what if all the creatures who live in cracks around here started cleaning house at the same time. Can you imagine what a mess that would be? Plastic bag thingies and metal boxes all over the place. They might even start throwing out dust bunnies and single socks. That could make a big mess on my trails.

I wonder how far down in the cracks those creatures live. I’d better see if I can get to them and give them what for.

Then I’m going to make them take all their stuff back and put it in garbage cans so the crack creature garbage truck can stop by to pick it up.
