In the Shadows

Bongo on the trail I finally figured it out.

I’m a genius!

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before.

You see, my person is always making me wait while she takes pictures of flowers on my trails.

But she likes to take those pictures when the lighting is just right.

So I’ll only take her out on my trails when the lighting is all wrong.

When the sun is almost down and everything is in shadow.

The light’s no good for flower pictures, and this time of year the temperature is much better in the shadows.

So that’s what I’m gonna do.

No more walks in perfect light for my person.

It’s shadows from now on.

I bet her camera won’t even work.


Hey person, what do you think you’re doing?

It must be some kind of reflex or something.

My person gets her camera out by pure habit.

Oh no.

Stop person!

Don’t click that camera!

Can’t you see you’re wasting your memory card space?

You might need it to take pictures of me.

What is this?

Either my person has lost it, or she can’t see anything in these shadows.

That’s not even a flower.

Shadows and Squishy Mud

Bongo and his shadow over mudSomething strange is happening on my trails today. Some things just don’t go together.

One of those things is shadows. Shadows show up when the sun is out. We have a lot of sunny days here so I’m used to seeing shadows.

The other thing is squishy mud. We don’t have squishy mud as often as we have shadows. It either has to rain a lot, or snow enough to turn everything good and white – and then melt.

These two things don’t show up on my trails at the same time. If we have shadows it’s not raining and right now there’s no snow anywhere in sight.

But they’re here. Both of them. I think I’d better investigate.

Hmmm. This is interesting. A lot of people walked on my trails when I wasn’t around. Maybe I’d better hang out more often. I’m missing out on a lot of loves.

And what’s this? It looks like it was made by one of those bike things. I guess somebody forgot to leave it at that rack thingy. The one I use as a message post. I could have left a really good message on that bike.

This is not good. Some other dog leaving marks in my squishy mud. Next thing you know, that dog will be thinking these are his trails.

I’d better make this investigation official. I’m off to get my official hat. No dog would try to cross Detective Dog.
