Left Behind

Bongo wanting out of dog jailThis is bad.

This is really bad.

My people have been so full of mischief that I can’t even wait until Monday Mischief to post it.

I’ve got to get it off my chest now.

I’ve got to let you feel sorry for me know all the horrible things they’ve been up to.

For two days in a row my people locked me in dog jail and went for a walk without me.

And I didn’t get a walk at all.

Something about me maybe wrecking my person’s good camera.

I would not wreck her camera – at least as long as she only used it to take pictures of me.

But what’s worse is all the things my people did.

Without me.

.

Yesterday they went to the creek.

Cathedral Rock - Sedona, AZ

And I didn’t even get to go swimming.

But this dog did.

Then today a really horrible thing happened.

My people went on my trails to take pictures of the sunset.

Without me.

And while they were on their way to that sunset…

Bongo's friend Lucy

They saw my girlfriend Lucy.

She probably thinks I’m avoiding her on purpose now.

Next time I’m locking my people in dog jail.

What Happens in the Mud

Bongo's paws next to some much larger paw prints

Somebody really big showed up on my trails when they were muddy.

I’m sure glad I missed out on seeing that somebody.

That could be really scary.

It taught me something though.

Not to take my person for walks on my trails when the mud is out.

Because whoever this is with the big paws likes to play in the mud.

I might get stuck in the mud and be mistaken for a new toy.

Yup, I think I’ll avoid my trails when the mud comes out.

Besides, I won’t get yelled at when I come back in the house.

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.

Secret Admirer

Bongo and a heart shaped from rocksI’m minding my own business, walking on my trails when what should appear, but a heart.

Not just any old heart.

Someone made this heart.

And the logical conclusion is that it was one of my girlfriends.

She must be around here somewhere waiting for me.

She probably wanted to surprise me with this heart first.

And then she’ll give me a bigger surprise by jumping out of the bushes.

Okay, that should happen anytime now.

I’m waiting.

I don’t even hear a bush rattling.

Come on! I know you’re out there somewhere.

Come out and tell me you love me.

***

It sure is quiet around here.

Bongo near the rock heart and looking around

Do you think she laid her heart down and left?

Back Off

Rain cloud over Thunder MountainHey person, we can’t go on a walk.

Look at that. There’s rain on its way.

It’s going to engulf us any minute now.

And you know what the rain brings with it.

.

.

.

Thunder!!!

Bongo between the trees and the rain

Maybe these trees will protect me from the rain.

Look, I can hardly see it now.

But I still think we need to go back.

I’m not sure if these trees are trustworthy.

And now the clouds are closing in from the other direction too.

Okay, that’s it person.

I’m not going anywhere.

What, you don’t believe me?

You don’t think I’m serious?

Well check this out.

I’m so serious…

Bongo about to back into cactus

…that I’d rather back into this cactus –

than go anywhere near that thunder.

Just try to get me to move.

Who Will Win?

Bongo on the trail looking upI was walking along my trails minding my own business when I looked up.

And in a tree were two birds.

.

.

.

.

.

I wonder what would happen if one of them decided to pull mischief on the other.

Hummingbird and hawk in a tree

Which one would win?

Hawk

Would it be the hawk?

Definitely the largest and most powerful of the two.

A tried and true hunter.

Would the hawk win?

Or would it be…

Hummingbird in a tree

…the hummingbird?

I’m going for the hummingbird.

That hummingbird already has it’s pointy beak aimed directly at the hawk.

One perfectly aimed dive bomb and that hawk will never know what hit him.

I’m voting for the little guy.

***

Unless the little guy turns out to be…

Gizmo on his back on the couch

…a cat.

This Way to Adventure

Globe mallowMy person is not always the most adventuresome person in the world.

I mean, look what she does when I take her on my trails.

She hangs around in one spot and takes pictures of flowers.

How adventuresome is that?

And when I want to go off trail looking for adventure – you know there’s lots of adventures hiding in the bushes – my person holds my leash tight and won’t let me go very far.

I haven’t been able to get through to her.

She’d have way more fun on our walks if she’d only follow me into adventure.

But I think she’s untrainable.

So since I’m missing out on so many adventures when I’m with my person I decided to try a new tactic.

***

I took my younger person and his friend on a walk with me.

Bongo on the trail with two guys

Hey guys come on.

It’s this way to adventure!

Sunset Surprise

Sunset in SedonaThe other day I finally figured out how to photobomb my person’s flower pictures.

But now I’ve got a new challenge.

I’ve been taking my person on some walks kind of late in the day.

It’s too dark for flower pictures, so I don’t even have to worry about photobombing them.

But now my person found something else to take pictures of.

.

.

Something you can only see this time of day.

Sunset in Sedona

Flowers are easy to photobomb.

I’m bigger than the flowers.

But what do I do about the sky?

Sunset in Sedona

The sky is bigger than me – and it’s higher than me.

What am I going to do?

There’s got to be a way.

And I’m going to find it.

Sunset in Sedona

Person, when I figure this out you’re going to be in trouble.

And so is your camera.

This is such a challenge.

What can I do about this?

Wait a minute.

I’m closer to my person’s camera than the sky is.

That’s got to count for something.

Bongo and the sunset

Take that you sunset!

Everybody’s looking at me now.

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…

Bongo looking cool with his Detective Dog hat on

…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.

Photobombing the Flowers

Purple flowerIn the spring we get lots of flowers and then most of them disappear for the summer.

And this time of year more flowers show up.

Lots of yellow flowers and a few purple ones too.

Anyone who’s known me for awhile knows how frustrated I get when my person starts taking pictures of flowers.

Well, she did it again.

.

.

.

.

She went after those purple flowers.

Purple flowers

So I decided it was about time I do something about it.

What if I…

Bongo sniffing purple flowers

…photobomb her flower pics.

So I started getting in the way every time my person got her camera out.

Until I realized I didn’t need to do that anymore.

Because…

…an ant had beaten me to it.
