The Almost Really Good Day

Today was a really good day.

Well, it started out good.

My buddy came over for a visit.

We had a great time playing catch – but then, he decided my younger person’s Legos were more interesting.

Bongo putting a ball in a box full of Legos

So I had to drop my ball in the Lego box.


That must have gotten his attention…

Bongo and his buddy on a walk in the snow

…because after that he let me take him for a walk.

In the snow.

Bongo eating snow near some icicles

I don’t know anything about icicles, but this snow sure tastes good.


But then my buddy got out of control.

He sent a truck after me.

But a picture doesn’t do this horrible truck justice.

Warning: The following video contains explicit language –

oh, never mind. Only my dog friends will understand what I’m saying.

My buddy deserved some real punishment for this.

So I locked him in dog jail.

And for good measure, I locked Gizmo in there with him.

After all, Gizmo used to be my buddy’s cat before he came to live at my house.


Hey, wait a minute!

Bongo and his buddy both locked in dog jail

How did I end up in here too?

A dog just can’t win around here.

The Best Way to End the Year

Bongo playing in the snow

Finally, my person is letting me post again.

I posed for so many pictures today that she didn’t know what else to do.

Anyway, this was the best way to end the year – and the only time all year I had snow to play in.

Bongo dragging a frisbee in the snow

One of my favorite things to do is drag a Frisbee through the snow.

Bongo looking for his frisbee in the snow

Now where did that Frisbee go?

Bongo in the snow with a frisbee in his mouth

Here it is!

I found it.

Gizmo peeking out the door

Hey Gizmo, come out here!

This is so much fun!

Bongo standing in the snow with a defiant look

Are you serious, Gizmo?

There is no way I’m coming back in the house.

Well, maybe – if I can go out the other door and head to my trails.

Bongo sniffing a snowman

Hey, who is this invading my front yard?

Looks like some kind of alien or something.

All I can say is, you’d better not be here when I get back –

 -or I’m turning you yellow.

Bongo sniffing a bush in the snow

Speaking of yellow, there’s got to be some yellow snow around here.

They tell me it carries the best messages.

Bongo sniffing another bush in the snow


There’s no yellow snow here either.

Agave plants covered in snow

These snow creatures must have eaten it all.

Bongo in his puddle that is almost covered in snow

Hey, what happened to my puddle?

It’s changed.

I guess not everybody likes snow the way I do.

I hope you pop out of it soon, puddle.

Bongo standing in the snow

Are you coming people?

Bongo on a snowy trail looking back

Come on!

Don’t worry about that puddle.

It’ll get over it.

Bongo waiting for his younger person to throw a snowball


Okay, throw the ball.

I’m ready.

Bongo watching his younger person with a snowball

I see that ball.

C’mon, throw it!

Bongo in the snow with a sad look

What do you mean, our walk is over?

Happy New Year everybody!

No Snow

Bongo on virgin snowYou see this picture here?

It didn’t happen today, or this week, or even this month.

This snow happened a very long time ago.

I haven’t had any snow to play in at all this winter.

And some of my friends have way more snow than they want.

You’d think it could get evened out a little better.

So I’m trying to figure out how I can get some of those clouds down here to play in.


They look like they might be as much fun as snow.

Wind swept clouds over red rocks

It looks like God’s paintbrush almost ran out of paint when He was brushing those clouds across the sky.

Clouds over Thunder Mountain

Oh wait, I think I’ve figured out how to get those clouds down here.


Almost anyway.

Hey, what’s this?

Clouds with sun dog

Isn’t that little colored spot in the sky called a sun dog?

Now that’s my kind of cloud.

Cactus or Puddle

Bongo, prickly pear cactus, and a little snowLook at this!

The only snow I could find on my trails today was being hugged by cactus.

I guess the cactus really likes the snow. It wouldn’t let it go.

Actually, I think it loves the snow. You see that heart on the cactus?

I put a heart on my blog yesterday for all of you, but I think this cactus is showing it’s affection for the snow.


Or maybe it loves me and the snow.

But my puddle has a different story to tell.

Bongo getting into and icy puddle

My puddle seems to want me to go away.

It grew some armor or something.

It’s all solid and crunchy on top.

But I’m not going to let that stop me.

Bongo in the icy puddle

Yikes! My puddle is cold inside.

I’m going to have to have a talk with my puddle.

Bongo in the icy puddle

Puddle, I think you need to get a heart like that cactus has.

And make sure it’s a warm heart.

Mystery Bush

Bongo by a bushYou see this bush behind me? Well, I told my person she wasn’t allowed to post any pictures of it unless she found out what it was.

I figured I was safe. I knew she didn’t know the name of this bush and I figured she’d never find out. Unless she went out of her way to find a plant specialist to tell her, that is.

But I was wrong. That’s a really hard thing to be. After all, I’m Bongo – and Bongo is never wrong.

Except for this time.

My person got on the internet and looked at all kinds of plant pictures until she found it. The Sugar Sumac. That’s what it’s called. And now I have to let her post all her pictures.

We’ve been watching these bushes for a long time.

Way last winter they got these little pink buds all over them.

But if you don’t believe these were like this way last winter I can prove it.

Sugar sumac with buds and snow

When the weather started getting warmer all the color faded out of those buds. We figured we’d seen the end of them.

Sugar sumac with buds that turned white

But then something extraordinary happened.

Well, maybe not so extraordinary but I wanted this to sound dramatic.

Okay person, you got your way. Can you put the camera away now?

Unexpected Weather Day

Bongo in a puddle in the yardWhat a day! My person said it was going to rain today and I guess she was right. It’s been doing nothing but rain all day long. It’s not even a day I want to go out for a walk, and I usually take my person out in almost any kind of weather.

Well, except for that thunder kind of weather, that is.

We weren’t supposed to get any of that thunder stuff today. But I guess the clouds got tired of sending down rain because for awhile they sent hail…


Hail on the stairs

and then it thundered.

But awhile later those clouds changed their mind again. It started to snow. Really hard.

Bongo in the snow

That snow even stayed on the ground.

Bongo sniffing the snow

Okay, I checked it out. It’s really snow – even though we were only supposed to get rain today.

It’s cold, wet, and blowy out here. This is all the walk I need.

You mean I don’t have to drag you back home, person? You want to go home, too?

Move over, Scratchy. I’m taking over your warm spot.

Who’s on the Roof?

Bongo looking cool with his Detective Dog hat onI had to put on my Detective Dog hat again. And not for a mystery happening on my trails. This mystery is happening in my own house. Right now.

This is serious! You see, there’s somebody thumping around up on my roof. I’m sure they’re up to no good so I’ve got to find out who it is.

I know the sound of those pesky squirrels when they run around on my roof and this is not the same. Whoever this is is much heavier than a squirrel. And they don’t move the same.

They thump around a couple times and then they’re quiet. And then a little while later they thump some more. Sometimes in the same place and sometimes not. Guess I’d better go outside. Maybe I’ll be able to see who it is.

House with tree in front and snow on the roof

Hmm. I don’t see anybody up there. I’ll go check around the back. I bet they’re hiding from me on the other side of the roof.

House with snow covered trees behind it

There’s nobody back here either. I wonder where they went to? And who they are?

Hey, look! Snow treats.

Bongo eating snow off the ground

I wonder where this extra snow came from. There’s more here than anywhere else in the yard.

Oh, I bet it dropped off the tree in the corner of the yard.

What a nice surprise to find that snow treat in my yard, but I think I’ll go back inside and warm up now. Maybe if I run out quick next time I hear that thumping on the roof I’ll catch whoever it is.

Wait a minute! I think I have another mystery on my hands. I was just outside. The sky is perfectly blue. The pictures here even prove that so there’s no doubt about it.

But now that I’ve come back in the house I can clearly hear that it’s raining outside.

Red Trails Again

Red Rocks in snow and cloudsThis is our second day of falling snow and it still isn’t covering up my trails.







Bongo speckled with snow

I haven’t been able to figure out why that snow can cover me up, but not my trails.

I guess some good things came out of it though. Lots of squishy mud.

Bongo and his paw prints in the mud

We met a man that looked like he had had a close encounter with some of that squishy mud. It gave me a great idea. What if my person and I did some mud wrestling? It would be almost as much fun as playing in snow. I tried to suggest it to my person and she wouldn’t go for it. People just don’t know how to have fun.

Well, most people anyway. We met two people who were laughing as they came around a bend. I think they were having fun. And they hadn’t even been doing any mud wrestling. I thought I’d do them a favor by showing them how tasty snow is. They didn’t want any though. They might know how to have fun, but they’re missing out when it comes to good taste.

Raven flying in a snowstorm

The ravens looked like they were having great fun today.

Raven flying near a tree

They usually don’t come this close to us, but I guess they were enjoying the snow.

Raven sitting in a tree

But since I can’t fly and my person won’t mud wrestle with me I’ll have to have fun in the snow a different way.

Maybe I can pretend I’m Waldo’s dog.

Bongo hiding among the snowy trees

Can you see me?

Snow for a Snow Dog

Snow Covered YuccaIt snowed today. Almost all day. It finally stuck on the trees and bushes, but we never got much on the ground.

My person checked on her friends on Facebook and you know what she discovered? Her friends that live south of Tucson built a snowman today. And her my friends that live a few miles from us and at a much lower elevation – what’s that word mean again, person? – they live down the hill from us, built a snowman today.

I’m not asking for a snowman, but a snow dog would be nice. But we don’t even have enough snow on the ground to do that.

Bongo eating snow off of low hanging branches

I had to get my snow treats off the trees today.

I guess I shouldn’t complain about that. Those treats were at the perfect level. I didn’t have to bend over.

Bongo on a red trail in snow

Not enough snow for a snow dog here either. Maybe I could mix some mud into the snow. A red and white snow dog might look pretty cool.

Bongo on a rock with snow and puddles in the distance

Even my wash is looking pretty sad. I think there’s more puddles than snow down here.

And now it’s not even snowing any more. How am I ever going to build a snow dog if the snow stops coming down?

Thunder Mountain in snow

Hey! I think I just figured out what happened to all the snow. It got stuck on top of those big rocks.

I wonder how I could get those rocks to shake around a bit and send some of that snow flying this way.

Washed Out

Bongo in the washI really love going into the wash on my trails. It has the best smells and it’s full of quail to chase. Well, I wish I could chase them. They’re always running away through the bushes long before I ever get near them.

The wash isn’t really a trail, but it does have trails leading down into it. One of those trails, my favorite, my person usually won’t let me use. Sometimes when the ground is moist and soft she lets me go down it but otherwise she says it’s got too many loose rocks for how steep it is. Just because I jumped all over her the one time she did slip. I thought she just got on the ground so we could wrestle. How was I to know?

But there’s another trail into the wash a little ways past that one. It’s not so steep so my person lets me use that one most of the time. Sometimes when it’s been raining a lot she doesn’t want to go into the wash at all. And that’s the most fun time, too. I love splashing in all those puddles. My person just doesn’t know how to have fun.

Today I found a new trail into the wash. And it takes me into the wash even earlier than those other trails.

And guess what. That upper part of the wash has some special surprises in it. Things that must get washed out before they get further down the wash.

Today I found something really special.

Bongo eating snow

The only patch of snow left anywhere on my trails. Time for a treat!
