Safe Walk?

Bongo looking at the trailI decided to take my person for a walk a little earlier than usual today.

We had the trails to ourselves – except for the lizards and birds, that is – because nobody uses my trails in the middle of the day in the summer.

The clouds were covering the sun and it was not quite as hot as usual.

But that’s what I was watching.





The clouds.


Pretty harmless so far.

I think we can keep going.

The sun’s still around.

Let’s walk further.

We’d better hurry.

That cloud’s beginning to look like something.

I’m not sure what, but it’s something.

Alright, I’m outta’ here.

That’s enough walking for today.

Houses Under Construction

Bongo, red rocks and a house being added on toThis is so cool! My friends the Collies, including my girlfriend Ginger, congratulated me on their blog for celebrating my 2nd Blogiversary. I love having such great blogging friends. And Ginger is my bestest girlfriend.

Note to all my other girlfriends: Ginger is headed toward World Domination so I have to make sure I stay on her good side.

Note to Collies: Please don’t let Ginger read my last comment.

Note to girlfriends: I meant girlfriend. It’s you, and you alone that I love.

Now that I’m finished with all my notes I’ve got to tell you about someone else that loves me.

The other day I explored a new part of my trails and discovered a stone house that someone had been building for me.

I got really excited when I found that house, but there is one problem. I haven’t been able to find the builder and the house isn’t finished.

There’s no roof on it.

But today I discovered another house that someone is building for me.

I wasn’t even exploring this time. I was taking my person for a walk on our usual trails and there it was.

Where it hadn’t been before.

I told my person we had to get closer. I needed a better look.

When I finally got a better look I was so disappointed.

What is wrong with the builders around here?

I can’t believe this is happening to me.

Two houses are being built for me…

and this one doesn’t have a roof on it either.

Missing Trails

Bongo in an empty parking lotSomething is strange here. There are no cars in the parking lot of my trails. This worries me. Yesterday there was a travelling Trails sign here in the parking lot and it’s gone. I think my fears have come true. Everybody followed that sign and now they’re walking on different trails. There’s nobody left here to give me loves. This is terrible!

Well, I’m going to go out on my trails anyway – sign or no sign. After all, they’re still my trails even if nobody else is on them.

At least, I think they’re my trails. Everything looks different today.

What happened to all the dust on my trails? It’s not here anymore. It’s vanished.

Bongo and some water across the trail

And look at this! My trails are leaking water. I don’t remember seeing water on my trails. Where’s all this water coming from? Is somebody crying? They must be very sad.

Bongo in a Puddle on the Trail

Look at this big wet spot – right in the middle of my trail. It’s cold too. Where did this come from? I don’t think this is my trail at all. Did my trails leave with that travelling sign? What am I going to do without my trails?

Cloudy Sky and Red Rocks

There’s something else missing. Where’s the blue sky? My sky is always blue. What happened to it?

Thunder Mountain with a little snow on top

Is there something strange about Thunder Mountain? Look, the color is missing on top. It looks like someone took a giant eraser and erased the color. Now it’s all white up there.

What am I going to do? What if that eraser comes down and starts erasing everything? It might even erase me!

Yikes! I’d better get out of here.

Bongo looking at a trail of water

Hey, look down there. Is that what I think I see?

Bongo in Puddle

It’s my puddle! You’re back, puddle! I think I finally figured out why my puddle leaves.

My puddle is shy. My puddle doesn’t like it when there are lots of people and dogs around.

Puddle, I think you’d better be careful though. A giant eraser is after us. If you’re not careful you might be disappearing again before you’re ready.

I’m on my way now.

Bongo sniffing muddy paw prints

Look at this! Somebody else has been here. There’s been a dog on my trails but he’s not here anymore.

I think that eraser got him.

Thunder Mountain

Painting of Thunder MountainFinally, here’s a painting that I was a part of. I tried to talk my person into painting me into it, but she would have nothing to do with that. She said the painting was a present and people usually only like paintings of their own dogs.

I thought everyone would want a painting of me.

Anyway, I was with my person when she took the picture that she did the painting from. We were on a really long walk that day – so this painting is from my trails, but further away than we usually go.

We have a good view of Thunder Mountain from the trailhead near my house, but this painting is from a different side of it.

When my person gets back home I’m telling her we need to go back there. Maybe I can help her do another painting of this mountain. Or maybe we can go to a different side of the mountain – one I haven’t seen before.

Hey person, I hope you don’t have anything to do when you get back home, because I have all kinds of plans for you.

Strange Behavior

Partial EclipseMy person behaved very strangely today. She got up while it was still dark. Sometimes she does that, but this time she put on her hiking boots and started heading out the door. Well of course I wasn’t about to let her go without me so I got up too.

We headed for the trails and it was still so dark my person needed a flashlight. And she was stopping and taking pictures. What the heck? I think there’s something wrong with my person. I’ve never seen her act this way.

We started heading toward the trail that goes up Sugarloaf. Then my person changed her mind. She said something about the moon hiding behind Thunder Mountain when we walked that direction. Since when has she ever cared where the moon was before?

I don’t know what had gotten into my person because then she took me up toward a ridge but we weren’t even on a real trail. Come on person – there is a trail up here where you don’t have to walk right next to cactus and jump over rocks. You just have to go back down to the road first.

We hung out on that ridge for awhile and my person took more pictures, but she said she needed to get a better camera – and a telephoto lense (whatever that is). It started getting light and my person said we could go back home now – that the moon had sunk behind Thunder Mountain right before it went into total eclipse.

I’m not sure what she was talking about, but by then it didn’t matter. All I cared about was getting back to my warm bed – and the rabbit that ran across the street in front of us.
