Almost an Adventure

Bongo on the kitchen floor looking sadMy person has been glued to the computer the last few days.

Even more than usual.

So I haven’t been having many adventures.

Well, she is still letting me take her for walks on my trails, but she never wants to take the extra time to have an adventure.

So I don’t have anything to tell you today.

The best I can come up with is a soon to be adventure.

And it has to do with flowers, so you know I’m desperate.

They’ve got their mouths open so you know they’re looking for something to eat.

.

.

But what they don’t know is that they’re about to be eaten themselves.

Weather Mischief

Hedgehog cactus in bloomThere has definitely been some mischief around here this weekend.

Weather mischief.

First, I saw my first cactus flower of the year.

I think that’s supposed to mean spring is here.

At least I guess so. We never did have winter this year.

Until this weekend, that is.

Because a little while after I saw this flower it snowed.

I don’t know what the weather’s up to.

No good, I think.

And these prickly pear cacti must have thought so too, because they decided to protect this lonely little flower.

And then my mischievous puddle finally decided to show up.

I was really happy to see it, but the way it’s been lately it’ll probably go off and hide somewhere again tomorrow.

It hasn’t been hanging around much lately.

But then my person had to add to the mischief.

She knows how much I don’t like waiting while she takes flower pictures.

So now she’s getting even worse.

She’s taking pictures of flowers before they even turn into flowers.

This is getting really serious.

All this mischief surrounding me.

I’m not sure what I’m going to do.

I think what I need is one of these.

I did spell that right, didn’t I?

Decorating the Cactus

Prickly pear cactus with gum on itLook at this!

Somebody’s decorating the cactus on my trails.

And it isn’t even Christmas.

Oh, I know.

It’s almost Easter and this is kind of an Eastery color.

It must be an Easter decoration.

I saw a bunny today. Maybe it was the Easter Bunny coming to decorate.

But wait.

Is this really an Easter decoration?

Gum on prickly pear cactus

This looks like it might be a balloon.

A balloon that had the bad luck of landing on these pricklers and popping.

Maybe I should investigate this and find out what’s really going on.

Bongo looking like he wants something done about the rocks across the trail

Hey person, can you go get my Detective Dog hat for me?

I’ve got an important investigation and I don’t have time to get it myself.

What do you mean, I don’t need my Detective Dog hat?

What clue?

You’ve got a clue for me?

Three sticks of gum

What kind of a clue is that?

If you won’t get my Detective Dog hat for me I guess I’m going to have to get it myself.

I’ve got some serious investigating to do.

And I don’t think I’m going to ask my person to help.

What’s for Dinner?

Prickly Pear Cactus with bites out of itSomeone has been pulling mischief on my trails.

Just look at this!

They’ve been eating the prickly pear cactus.

This has got to be a real mischief maker for sure.

I mean, who would want to eat cactus?

Those things are full of pricklers.

But somebody has.

.

And I’m going to investigate.

Detective Dog

Detective Dog to the rescue!

Here’s more prickly pears with bites.

I don’t believe it!

And this Detective Dog hat is making me smart.

I think I know who the culprit is already.

Because right here is where I saw that culprit the other day.

And if it wasn’t him, it was one of his buddies.

Now all I have to do is find the javelina with cactus pricklers sticking out of his mouth.

Danger Warning

Bongo near a prickly pear cactusThey’re all over my trails.

Sometimes people we pass ask my person how she keeps me away from them.

But for the first time today someone warned us about them.

A boy who had just discovered them.

I don’t think he was attacked, but he saw the danger.

Those things have attitude.

And some of them hang out right next to my trails.

.

So close that you have to be careful not to brush against them.

But I think that boy might have been overly concerned.

Let me see.

Nope, he’s right.

Away, you prickly pear! Away!

Don’t get so close to my trails.

Missing Adventures

Bongo climbing onto a rockThis time of year on colder days I have to go to great lengths to find adventure.

There aren’t many people or dogs on my trails and most of my adventures start with people or dogs – or the mysteries they’ve left behind.

So I’ve been searching and searching for some kind of adventure on my trails.

No luck.

Nothing. Nada.

.

I hate to admit it, but I even looked for a bit of color so my person would get her camera out.

Even though I hate waiting for her to take all those pictures– unless there are some good smells in the area, that is.

But there’s not a single flower out this time of year.

Finally, I found something worth posting on my blog.

Not an adventure.

Not even a flower.

I give you my heart.

Bored

Pink prickly pear cactus flowerI’m getting really bored at the dog hotel. All I can find to post is this prickly pear picture.

The prickly pear didn’t have many flowers this year, so I really had to look hard to find one.

I sure hope my person comes and gets me out of here soon.

I need to have more adventures.
