A New Garden

Sunflowers amid a collection of rocksAs I walked along on my trails minding my own business I noticed something new.

It was in a little area where people sometimes hang out.

The place where people stack rocks up into high piles.

Only I guess they got tired of stacking rocks.

Now they’ve decided to plant a garden.

.

.

.

.

I decided to check it out.

Bongo behind the sunflowers

Those sunflowers are tall and easy to see.

But maybe there’s more garden around here.

Maybe someone planted some vegetables.

Some really tasty vegetables.

I like vegetables.

I’m drooling just thinking about it.

***

Wait. This isn’t fair.

It’s torture to start drooling and find nothing tasty to satisfy that drool.

Bongo walking away from the flowers

There’s nothing here person.

Let’s go home.

I know you’ve got vegetables treats for me there.

Stack on Stack

Bongo sniffing a stack of rocks on the trailCheck this out.

You see those rocks that are covered with wire?

Well, those are supposed to be there.

They mark the trail for people who don’t know where it is and can’t smell it.

If people were like us dogs they’d smell their way along the trail and they wouldn’t need trail markers at all.

But apparently, instead of not needing any markers, someone needed extra markers – because they stacked extra rocks on top of the ones that are supposed to be there.

And then to make sure nobody missed them, they shone a light right on them.

I’ve got to figure out how they did that light thing.

 

So while I was still deep into my investigation…

…I came back the next day and the mystery had deepened.

I mean heightened.

Bongo sniffing a taller stack of rocks on the trail

There were more rocks on the stack.

And the light was still there.

I’ve got to figure out that light thing.

Maybe I can get it to shine on me.

I’d love to be in the spotlight.

Short Stacks

Bongo and a bunch of rocksA long time ago some strange rock piles appeared where the boys used to hang out near my trails.

Those rock piles stayed in that spot for a very long time.

And more and more rock piles showed up there.

There were so many that I don’t think anybody could walk around there anymore.

I was going to check it out but my person wouldn’t let me.

She said those rock piles were taller than me and a rock might fall on my head.

I’m not sure why she was worried.

She says I have a hard head.

I think it was just her excuse to keep me away from there.

***

But today, as I walked by that spot things were different.

The rock piles had shrunk – and some had gone away completely.

Bongo sniffing the rocks

Guess I’d better check for clues.

I’ve got to know what happened around here.

***

This is bad.

This is really bad.

There are so many mixed messages around here that I’ll never sort it all out.

Bongo leaving a message on some rocks

Guess I’ll just leave one of my own.

Too Many Piles

Bongo next to a pile of rocks in a washI don’t believe it!

Someone ran out of room in their rock pile spot and now they’re even building rock piles in my wash.

This is a silly place to build rock piles.

Don’t they know this is a wash?

As soon as we get a good rain the water will come roaring down here and take that rock pile away.

Oh, wait.

When was the last time we had rain here?

That rock pile might be safe after all.

So anyway, since that rock pile in the wash might wash away I’m going to leave it alone.

And invade the rock pile spot instead.

Bongo among many piles of rocks

Every time I walk by here there are more piles of rocks.

They’re running out of room to even put more piles.

So I think I’ll do them a little favor.

So they have a chance to do some more piling…

Bongo knocked over a few rocks

I think I’ll knock a few of these rocks to the ground.

Cracking Question

Bongo on the trailI headed down my trails when I noticed something terrible had happened.

Something disastrous.

I’m not sure what it was, but it must have been very disturbing.

Something so distressing that even the rocks were upset.

I tried to ask them what had happened but they couldn’t answer me.

.

You see, they had cracked.

Red rock cracked in two

Poor rocks.

I wonder if there’s a looney bin for rocks.

They need some special care.

I found one more rock to ask, but I’m not sure what was going on with this rock.

My question was totally serious – yes, I can be serious when I want to – but for some reason this rock thought I was being funny.

Or maybe it thought that I’m funny.

I hope it didn’t think I’m funny looking.

But anyway, when I tried to ask this rock what happened…

Red rock cracked into several pieces

it cracked up.

The Aliens are Gone?

Stacked RocksYesterday I told you about a spot on my trails that I couldn’t investigate because it was guarded by aliens.

So I had to check out other parts of my trails to see if I could find any clues as to who those aliens were.

I found a clue, but I didn’t get to the bottom of my investigation.

Well, today the aliens were gone and I was able to make a direct investigation of that spot.

.

.

Bongo near a stacked rock

Hmmm. That’s a strange looking rock up there.

Definitely looks like it belongs to aliens.

I’ll have to investigate further.

Bongo sniffing a rock

Here’s another strange rock.

Let me see if I can sniff out any clues.

Bongo checking a stacked pile of rocks

A whole pile of rocks. Hmmm.

Bongo sniffing a rock

And another one.

Wait! Wait just a minute!

I’m sniffing something strange.

I think I may have figured this out.

Let me see if my theory is correct.

Bongo with his head against a standing rock

I don’t believe it!

I know what happened here.

These rocks are the aliens!

The aliens turned into solid rock.

I can’t even knock this one over.

Maybe if I water it it will come back to life.

Rock with a wet spot

Nope, that alien is still staying solid as a rock.

Bongo walking away from the rocks

I guess it’s safe to leave this spot.

These aliens aren’t going anywhere.

Rain Changes

Bongo on the trail - cloud covered rocks in the distanceIt rained and rained today.

I thought I was going to have to take my person for a rain walk.

But finally things cleared up – or at least the rain stopped falling.

So off we went.

But something had happened on my trails.

The clouds had stolen some of my rocks.

.

.

.

.

Clouds over Thunder Mountain

Yikes! There goes another one.

I’d better go chase those clouds away before they steal all my rocks.

Cloud covered rocks

I had to give up on those clouds because I couldn’t convince my person to follow me – and she wouldn’t let go of my leash.

Sometimes it’s a real burden taking a person for a walk.

Some of my rocks had disappeared – but then I found some new things on my trails that hadn’t been there before.

Small purple flowers

These flowers weren’t here before.

Bongo looking at water in the wash

Neither was this swimming hole.

Yipee! I love swimming.

Hey, wait a minute. This hole’s not deep enough.

Maybe I can dig it deeper.

Bongo digging in a small pool of water

Maybe not.

Guess I’ll head back home.

Hey person, I think we might be lost.

Bongo in a wash containing a small stream of water

I’ve been looking all over the place and I can’t find the dry wash that we always walk through.
