Where is Nemo?

Snow falling on BongoSome of my friends in the eastern part of the States have had a visit by someone called Nemo. Nemo seems to like snow because he brought a lot of that with him. The people there are buried in snow, but some of my dog friends are having a great time playing in it.

I thought it would be  fun to have some of that snow to play in, so I went out to see if Nemo had stopped by here.

I think maybe Nemo shook his head this direction because a lot of white flakes landed on top of me. They kind of look like dandruff. I think maybe Nemo needs to use a new shampoo.

Nemo, you might want to try some of mine. It works pretty good.

I figured Nemo was getting pretty close if he could shake his head and have stuff land here so I went looking, but I didn’t have much luck.

Nemo, are you hiding in this tree? I think you left something behind.

Wait a minute. I think I found something.

No this doesn’t look like it came from Nemo either. Maybe from one of his little brothers. A very tiny little brother.

This is no good. I’m very jealous of my doggie friends that have all that snow to play in while I’m having no luck.

What, person?

I’m lucky I can’t find Nemo? Why would you say that?

If anybody out there sees Nemo, could you tell him to stop by and see me, and bring some of his snow? And not just what he shakes out of his head either.

I mean it. I’m really serious about finding Nemo.

P.S. My person and I send our prayers to everyone who is digging their way out of the storm.

Not the Trails

Bongo in the StreetAre you crazy, person? I’m not taking you on my trails today. There’s thunder out there. And besides, it’s snowing and blowing and I only like snow when it’s on the ground and I can play in it.

Look, there’s no snow on the ground. What good is it if it’s not on the ground? Let’s go back in the house.

Okay fine. We don’t have to go back in the house yet, but I’m not taking you on those trails. We can walk around the block. Come on person. This way.


Bongo walking down the street

Besides, maybe some of my trail friend dogs will be around here. I know no self-respecting dog will be out on the trails right now.


This house is what? Who lives here? Kaiser? You told me you talked to one of Kaiser’s people and you’re going to let me meet him. You never let us get together when we see him on my trails. So what about it, huh?


What do you mean, we’re going home now. I had to give Kaiser what for – let him know who’s boss. Now we can be friends next time we meet.

But I’m not ready to go home yet. Kaiser’s cat comes into my yard sometimes. I’ve got to make sure he stays over here.

Person! Let go of my leash!

This is embarrassing. I couldn’t even go after a cat.

Where do you think you’re going, person?

We are still not going on those trails.

I’m taking you home.

Where Is It?

Thunder MountainI don’t see it here. Where is it?

You said it was coming. How come I’m not finding it?






.Maybe it’s over here.

Bongo looking around

Nope. I don’t see it anywhere.

Is it over this way?

Bongo looking the other way

Not here either.

Where is it?

A couple days ago we had a really warm day and we hiked up Sugarloaf. Person, you said we were taking advantage of the nice weather because snow was on its way.

And then yesterday it got cold and cloudy and you still said snow was on its way. I started getting really excited because I love playing in the snow.

So this morning I was all ready to run out and play in the snow. But there wasn’t any. There weren’t even any clouds anymore.

But person, you said we were getting snow, so it must be around here somewhere.

I don’t care if the weatherman messed up. If he’s hiding that snow from me he’d better come forth with it. Nobody’s keeping my snow from me.

What do you mean, I’m not going to find any snow?

That’s not fair!

Could you at least get me a couple ice cubes then?

Appreciating the Weather

Bongo sniffing something on the trailToday was one of those T-shirt kind of days that we sometimes get here in January. My person said snow was on the way so we needed to take advantage of the weather while it’s here. So off we headed on my trails.








Bongo heading up a trail

Hey person, this isn’t our usual way to go. Where am I taking you?

Bongo in a small patch of snow

Did you say snow was on its way? There’s some snow already hanging out here.


When I finished checking out the snow that seemed to like this warm weather, we headed on up the trail.

Bongo heading up a steep trail

Where am I taking you person? This trail’s really steep.

Bongo looking down the trail

Are you coming, person? You seem to be taking your time.

Bongo looking worn out

You can slow down now, person. I need a rest.


Finally, we made it to the top.

Can you see our house down there?

Hey, this is pretty cool. A what kind of view is it? Panoramic view? I don’t see any pans from here? Just an old coffee pot.

Fans on my Trails

Bongo sniffing in a snow patchToday was on the nippy side with a little bit of a breeze. It felt kind of like a fan blowing on me. A chilly fan. At least it wasn’t cold and windy with snow blowing in my face like it was a few days ago.

A few patches of snow still hung out around my trails and they had some very unusual scents in them. I had to stick my nose into all the indents in the snow. It was fun – until my person told me I’d smelled enough and made me leave.



Bongo stepping lightly in the puddle

I checked out my puddle too. It always seems to come around when there’s snow on the ground. My puddle felt very cold and it smelled a lot like those snow patches. I wished I’d had a blanket with me for my puddle. It could have used some warming up.

But here’s the best part. As we were walking along my trails we met two people. That’s not so unusual – we meet people on my trails all the time – but my person seemed to know these people. I’m still trying to figure out how my person knows all these people that I’ve never met, but she does.

But here’s the even stranger part. One of those people that I’ve never met before knew who I was, and she even knew my name.

And she gave me loves…

Bongo giving his new friend kisses

lots of loves.

She’s one of my fans who reads my blog.

I kind of like this meeting my fans thing – so I’d like the rest of my fans out there to please go for walks on my trails. And make sure you’re out there the same time I am. You can check with my secretary person for my schedule.

No person, I’m not letting this fan thing go to my head.

What do you mean I still have to pick up my own toys and make my dog bed?

Make it Stop

Bongo unhappy with the falling snowToday seemed like an ordinary day as my person and I headed out for our walk. Well, it was cloudy and kind of chilly, but I can put up with that. Anything for a walk.

But as soon as we got out to the street I could see it coming. Have you ever watched a storm about ready to attack you? It’s like a big cloud coming toward you –ready to engulf you.

And then it did.

Snow and wind coming right in my face. And it wasn’t that light, fluffy kind of snow. This was that hard little corny kind. I didn’t like it one little bit. I don’t know what my person was thinking. She kept heading up the trail.

Bongo balking while the snow is falling

I had to put my foot down. I came to a halt.

Bongo giving the evil eye

My person still didn’t get it. I gave her the evil eye.

Finally she got the message and we headed toward home. But by then the wind and snow were bad in both directions.

Bongo looking for another route

I started looking around to see if that snow was everywhere. Maybe it was only falling on my trail.

There must be another way.

Bongo not wanting to go

I think my person should have followed me off the trail, but she made me stay on it. And it wasn’t the right way at all. By now those snowflakes were turning into monsters. More like hail if you ask me.

Bongo with snow on his back and a sad look

I finally had to try the sad look. It hasn’t worked before, but there’s got to be a first time. I’m sure my person could stop this storm if she wanted to.


I knew it. My person could stop the storm. As soon as we got back in the house that snow stopped coming down.

Now I just have to figure out why my person was picking on me.

Mischief Failure

Bongo waiting outside in a puddleWe finally had our first snow of the season and I wanted to go out and play. But for some reason I couldn’t convince my person to come out and play with me. I think I even made up a new rule for Snoopy’s Mischief Master Class – Look Forlorn – but it didn’t work. I guess Snoopy doesn’t need to add that one to the book.

Finally, I convinced my person to go for a walk on my trails with me.






Bongo heading for the weeds on the trail

I think weeds taste better when they’re mixed with a little snow.

Bongo at the weeds on the trail

Yup, this looks pretty tasty.

Bongo chomping on weeds with snow patches

A little snow dressing. Definitely my preferred way to have my salad.

Okay, now I’m full. Time for a little exploring.

Bongo heading into a wash

Hey person, this looks like the best way to go today.

Bongo stepping into a puddle

Hey, this is delicious. Just what I needed to wash down those weeds.

Bongo enjoying the puddle

Come on in, person. The water’s fine!

I’m not sure why, but I don’t think my person wants to go this way.

Almost Snow

Snow on High RocksIt snowed today, but I’m not sure what happened. Last time it snowed here I found all kinds of snow creatures. This time, nothing. I think there might be some in those rocks up there. Those rocks are a lot whiter than usual and snow creatures are white. So that might be them hiding up there.

I’m not sure why I saw snow coming down all day, but the ground is just wet. Shouldn’t it be white and slippery when it snows? I did find a few slushy weeds on my trails. They were extra good, but my person would only let me get a couple bites in before dragging me away.

Bongo eating a slushy weed

Oh, wait a minute. Here’s something that wasn’t here before. Puddles and squishy mud! This is alright! Keep walking, person. I’ve got to see how much mud I can squish.

Bongo in a puddle and mud

Oh, look! It’s back! My puddle came back! Puddle, where have you been? I’ve missed you so much. I didn’t know if I would ever see you again. I’m so glad you came back. Were you lost? Did the snow creatures take you away with them? Did they drop you off before they went up on those rocks? Puddle, it’s so good to see you again.

Where Do the Snow Creatures Go?

Bongo Eating SnowThis morning my entire back yard had turned into a popsicle. It tasted so yummy. Forget the Frisbee. I think I’ll see how much of my yard I can eat. Frozen snow is the best. Nice and crunchy. Not as hard as ice cubes – but I like those too.

I wanted to eat my whole yard – all the snow in it, but my person had other ideas – as usual. She took me out on my trails though and another wish came true. My trails had turned to mud. The sides of my trails still had lots of snow, but gooey, mucky, squishy mud filled my trails. It felt so good to walk in. I’m not sure why, but my person kept trying to avoid the mud. She didn’t do a very good job.

We squished along for awhile and then I found something interesting. Just sitting there on top of a trail marker. A snowman and a snow worm. A couple days ago I found a strange creature buried in the snow. I wonder if the snow worm is one of its babies. I wish it would snow more often. I’m finding all kinds of creatures that I don’t normally see on my trails. I wonder where they go when the snow goes away.

Snowman and Snow Worm

I even found a creek that only comes out when it snows. I wanted to follow it and find out where it goes. Maybe I would find where the snow creatures go too. They must have a hidey hole they all go to when the snow goes away.

Bongo in the Creek

My person wouldn’t let me follow the creek. Something about getting her boots wet. C’mon person. First you complain about the mud. Now you don’t want to wash it off.

People! If I don’t get mine trained right I’m never going to find that hidey hole.

Snow Changes

Bongo in the snowWe got more snow overnight and then the sun came out in the afternoon. Time for more adventures!

The sun made the snow start melting so there were all kinds of puddles and streams on my trails. I walked through the middle of every puddle. It was great fun.

I found some kind of strange spiny creature hibernating in the snow. I’ve never seen this creature before. I hope it’s still there when the snow melts. I want to see what the rest of it looks like.


Spiny Snow Creature

My pond didn’t have any water in it a couple days ago. Now it’s a true mud puddle. It even has red water. I’d better get my Detective Dog hat on and find out where this water is coming from.

Bongo in the Mud Pond

Hey, where did this water come from? It’s running down the rock.

We even found a virgin trail and got to put the first footprints in the snow.

Bongo on virgin snow

Hey person, I bet tomorrow we’ll be able to find some really good virgin mud.
