Warning Bark

Bongo in the darkFinally, my person figured it out.

I’ve been trying to warn her the last few nights and all she does is tell me to come back in the house.

She doesn’t even know what my bark is for.

It’s not like I bark up a storm.

Just one warning bark when they walk by.

And then my person tells me to come in.

.

***

You see, we’ve been having some visitors the last few nights.

And when I’m hanging outside in the evenings I hear them walking by on the other side of my fence.

But my person had no idea what my warnings were – until she went out to her car one night and found them there.

Right in my front yard.

And the next day she found something else.

They’d made their own path right on the side of our house.

This is my yard.

I’m the only one allowed to make trails in it.

I’d better send my person on inspection treks around the house more often.

***

Finally, my person heeded my warning.

She checked the front yard and found them out there again.

Javelinas in the yard

Hey person, you managed to get the light on me in the dark.

What was your problem with those javelinas?

Downed Nest

Bird nest on the groundSome bird dropped her nest right in my yard and flew the coop.

Or maybe the baby birds were ready to go and they tossed out their nest when they left.

So which is it?

I’ve got to go find them and ask them.

.

.

.

But I’ve got a dilemma.

Bongo looking away and a nest on the ground

Did they fly that way?

Bongo looking the opposite direction

Or did they fly over there?

Reasons to Go Out

I go out in the yard for a number of reasons.

Sometimes it’s to do my business.

But that’s not always the case.

Sometimes it’s nice outside – or there are good smells out there – and I just want to hang out in the yard for awhile.

Other times my people tell me to go outside.

And when I come back in when I’m told they give me a treat.

I like that treat thing.

So sometimes I ask to go out…

…so I can come back in again and get a treat.

Bongo waiting at the door to come in

Hey people, I’m ready to come in now.

Bongo with a sad look

Are you gonna give me a treat?

What do you mean, no?

Bongo sitting and waiting for a treat

How about now?

I’m in my best treat pose.

Come on. I came back in the house, didn’t I?

That’s got to be good for something.

Yard Invasion

Large green caterpillarThere has been an invasion.

In my yard.

And not just one, but two somebodies have invaded my yard.

My person was pulling weeds out in the yard.

No, my person wasn’t the one invading the yard.

But the weeds were.

Oh, that makes at least three somebodies.

.

.

My person pulled up a weed, and there it was.

Large green caterpillar with intricate patterns

A big old green caterpillar.

Invading my yard!

And I know there was someone else because – just look at that caterpillar.

An artist was in my yard too.

Painting on that caterpillar.

A pretty good artist at that.

But the artist disappeared before my person exposed that caterpillar.

Otherwise I could have caught two culprits at once.

So I did then next best thing.

Bongo with his tongue out and curled up

I ate the caterpillar.

Note: No caterpillars or Bongo’s were harmed in the making of this blog post.

Who’s the Boss?

Two little dogs on the trailThey bark at me every time I pass their yard.

Which is every day – because their yard is right by my trails.

I guess they’re trying to tell me who’s boss.

Okay fine.

I didn’t want to come in your yard anyway.

You can be the boss of your yard.

.

.

***

But today something different happened.

I found them on my trails.

My trails, mind you.

And they still tried to tell they were the boss.

But I gave them a little different perspective.

It’s kind of hard to tell somebody you’re the boss when they’re towering over you.

Okay guys, I guess I’ll let you come on my trails.

Just remember who the boss is.

Hanging Out

Bongo in the yardIt seems like every time I take my person for walks she gets her camera out.

She’s always making me wait while she takes pictures of flowers and stuff.

It’s frustrating.

I’ve got places to go and things to sniff – and all my person wants to do is stay in one spot and take pictures.

But when it comes to my yard, I’m not allowed to hang out there.

I get to go do my business and then I have to come right back in.

I don’t know what my person’s problem is.

Just because I jumped the fence once or twice.

I only do it when I’m bored.

***

But I finally figured it out.

You see, a thistle popped up in my yard and there aren’t any thistles on my trails.

So when my person was out pulling weeds I hid it from her.

And it worked.

Because that thistle bloomed and just like I knew she would…

My person headed out with her camera.

And I got to hang out in the yard.

The Visitor

Bongo in dog jail looking sadI’m not sure who was up to the most mischief today.

My person, or the visitor.

You see, my person saw a visitor in our driveway today and you know what she did?

She came in, got her camera, and locked me in jail!

You hear that?

She locked me in dog jail.

I wanted to visit the visitor, and she locked me in dog jail.

.

 

And then she went out to take pictures.

And what was that visitor doing in my yard?

And what was it doing hanging around waiting for my person to get her camera?

We’ve seen a couple snakes on my trails lately.

And my person used some excuse about them hiding before she could get her camera out, and she wouldn’t take any pictures.

But this snake – in my yard – hangs around waiting until my person gets back outside with her camera.

Without me.

I think my person and that snake had this all planned out.

Sand snake

Just wait till I get my paws on my person’s camera.

We’ll see who visits my yard then.
