Transformed Puddle

Bongo sniffing a bush with snowy rocks behind him

I made my person go for a walk with me in the rain today.

It was fun. There were streams everywhere.

But I was so startled by one stream that my person actually let me do a blog post for the first time in a long time.

Well, maybe it was because her class got cancelled because there’s snow where her school is.

Anyway, here it is!

Bongo and a stream among the rocks

My puddle is no longer a puddle.

It has transformed into a stream.

On second thought, I think it’s a bathtub.

It’s got a natural sponge – and bubbles.

Do you think this puddle will get me clean?

Back Off

Rain cloud over Thunder MountainHey person, we can’t go on a walk.

Look at that. There’s rain on its way.

It’s going to engulf us any minute now.

And you know what the rain brings with it.

.

.

.

Thunder!!!

Bongo between the trees and the rain

Maybe these trees will protect me from the rain.

Look, I can hardly see it now.

But I still think we need to go back.

I’m not sure if these trees are trustworthy.

And now the clouds are closing in from the other direction too.

Okay, that’s it person.

I’m not going anywhere.

What, you don’t believe me?

You don’t think I’m serious?

Well check this out.

I’m so serious…

Bongo about to back into cactus

…that I’d rather back into this cactus –

than go anywhere near that thunder.

Just try to get me to move.

What a Difference a Day Can Make

Bongo on the trailYesterday was the worst day ever!

All day long there was thunder, thunder, thunder.

I didn’t dare take my person for a walk.

She would have gotten scared and run off for sure.

The thunder finally stopped at night, but the rain kept coming.

All night long it rained – and even into the morning.

But finally, everything changed.

My people left me – well, that’s another story – but while they were gone my neighbor dog Toby came and busted me out of dog jail and we went for a walk together.

Finally, my people came back home.

I got to show my person how much nicer things were on my trails.

The sun had come bursting through the clouds, the rain had cooled things down, the air was clean and fresh, and the hummingbirds darted here and there because there wasn’t even any wind.

And everywhere I stuck my nose…

Bongo sniffing some grass

…there were great sniffs.

Bongo sniffing some rocks

And more great sniffs.

Bongo in his puddle

My puddle was full.

Bongo under a juniper tree

I even found a tree that was willing to scratch my back.

Bongo sniffing the base of a bush

Oh, and did I remember to tell you how many great sniffs I found?

A day sure can make a difference.

Thunder Mischief

Bongo leaving his dog jailI’m not sure who was up to the most mischief this weekend.

My people or the thunder.

On Saturday my person waited until almost the end of the day to let me take her for a walk.

She had some excuse about it being too hot.

So by the time she finally said we could go, we couldn’t.

Because the thunder had shown up.

There’s no way I’m going out there when there’s thunder.

I mean, what if it comes and grabs me and takes me back into the sky with it.

And then drops me.

Or what if it chases me all the way up a mountain.

No, I don’t trust that thunder at all.

But that wasn’t all the mischief.

On Sunday my people locked me in dog jail.

And left me.

And it rained real hard.

It made so much noise on the roof that my dog bed got wet too.

We must have a leaky roof.

Person, if you type that I’m calling you on more mischief.

I can’t help it if I get things wet when I’m scared.

Loud rain is scary.

Then my people came back home and the thunder must have followed them, because it thundered the whole rest of the day.

I hope my trails are still around.

I haven’t been able to check on them for two days now.

But here’s the worst part.

My people left me in dog jail again.

And this time it thundered and rained.

I think the only one I can still trust around here is my sneaky squeaky snake.

The Rain Changes Everything

Bongo looking away from a prickly pear blossomIt rained last night.

Really hard.

For a long time.

It’s been a very long time since we had rain.

So today when I went out on my trails, everything looked different.

The first different thing I found was my girlfriend Lucy.

The rain must have brought her out, because I haven’t seen her in a very long time.

And then I saw…

Hey person, look over there.

No, not that direction.

There’s nothing for you to take pictures of that you would be interested in looking at in that direction.

***

There have been no flowers on my trails for awhile now.

It’s been nice.

.

But a late blooming prickly pear popped out after the rain and of course my person had to take a picture.

Prickly pear blossom

At least there were only two blossoms on all of my trails so I got my person moving along fairly quickly.

And then I saw it!!!

My puddle!

Bongo by his puddle

My puddle had returned!

It’s been so long since I’ve seen my puddle that I almost forgot about it.

But my person said we couldn’t stay forever – it was getting dark.

So we saw a few ho hum things on our way back from my puddle.

Javelina tracks in the mud

Clouds lit by the setting sun

And some clouds.

Boring.

Deserted in the Storm

Bongo in his dog jail on his new bedYesterday was Independence Day and I think my people got it all wrong.

They thought they could be independent of me for awhile.

And they left me.

In dog jail.

While they went gallivanting about.

And while they were gone it rained.

And it thundered.

I got really scared.

I don’t think my people cared at all.

Because they didn’t get one drop of rain on them.

And the thunder was far away from where they were.

I hope you feel sorry for me now because I don’t think my people do.

They didn’t even bring me treats.

All they have to show for themselves are these pictures.

Just a Memory

Bongo's head looking over the washI’m taking the memory trail today before I forget.

You see, we haven’t had rain in a very long time.

I’ve almost forgotten what it’s like.

It’s been so long that the county I live in has already posted fire restrictions.

They never post fire restrictions this early in the year.

Maybe somebody should tell them it’s only April.

So anyway, before I forget what rain is like, I thought I’d look back at some pictures my person took from the last time it rained.

She doesn’t make me wait around as much when she takes rain pictures like she does when she’s taking flower pictures, so I like the rain pictures better.

Bongo looking at wet red rocks

The rocks on my trails change color when it rains.

Rain must have some magical dye in it or something that goes away the same time the rain does.

Bongo on rocks with water flowing down

Water flows down the rocks on my trails when there’s rain.

It’s fun to splash in.

Red rocks covered in clouds

Sometimes the rain has giant erasers and it starts erasing the big rocks on my trails.

The rocks always come back eventually, so they must be magic erasers.

Bongo in his puddle

My puddle!

Oh puddle, I almost forgot about you.

It’s been so long since I’ve seen you.

Where are you hiding?

I’m not sure why my puddle only shows up when it rains.

Well puddle, I guess it will be awhile longer till I see you again because…

Bongo on the trail with red rocks and blue sky in the background

I’m really enjoying all this great weather we’re having.

Guess I’ll forget about the rain.
