About

Hi! My name is Bongo. I’m a dog who loves getting into mischief and having adventures. I also love people and like to share what I’ve been up to.

On Sundays I tell Bible stories. Well, my person tells them to me and I make comments. I’m sure you’ll find these Bible stories much more understandable because of what I add to them. If you click on the “Dogology” link you’ll find all of my Bible stories in one place.

      Thanks so much Bassa. My person is leaving the house and she won’t let me use her computer when she’s not here. I looked quickly, but I’ll check your new posts out better when she gets back home. -Bongo

        Hi!! Just wanted to say THANKS for mailing Nala’s collar and tags. So happy you found them while hiking at Sycamore. You can check out some pics of my dogs and cats on my facebook page.

        Shirley, I was glad I could find you and get that collar back to you. I checked out the photos on your Facebook page. Looks like your dogs love the water too.

      I learned of your blog from rachelmankowitz — her blog lists yours as one of her favorites. I certainly had a good time reading your posts and seeing the photos. You might mention to your human that I also have a blog at http://www.maijaharrington.com where I’m posting chapters from my book-in-progress, Funny Tails: Adventures and Misadventures in Living with Pugs. It’s a lighthearted look at 10 years of living with these flat-faced, frog-eyed little gremlins and providing foster care through Pug Rescue of North Carolina. Lots of folks like the book and think it’s funny, so she may enjoy it, too. In the meantime, I look forward to new posts from you!

    Hi there, would you be interested in being a guest blogger on my blog? If so please contact me via email at talkzcheap@yahoo.com. You can add a link to your blog and any photos etc that you would like. I thought it would be nice to share your story of how you came to own Bongo maybe in his words since that is how you write. Take care and God bless!

    Bongo,

    We have some Giveaways! We would like to offer you and your audience 5 free FurCode Pet ID Tags. FurCodes are a smart modern upgrade to the dog tag of previous generations. Each tag links to an online Pet Profile allowing pet owners to keep their pet’s contact, vet and care information current.

    We invite you to check out FurCode.com to see how they work. They’re pretty neat. Please let me know if you are interested.

    We can ship the FurCodes worldwide on your behalf.

    Hi,

    We are the Feedimal team, a group of pet lovers who are passionate about bringing new technology to the pet industry.

    We have developed a programmable touchscreen pet feeder which deliver food at your selected time and helps to regulate your dog/cat diet for a better living.
    The prototype is fully working and we are now looking to go under mass production and get our product on shelves.

    Feedimal is launching on http://www.indiegogo.com/feedimal, a popular fundraising website.

    We have spent so much energy in creating what we believe is a great and useful product for dogs and cats, we really hope you can share our news with your friends and valuable readers. We will be forever grateful for your support.

    Thanks,
    Feedimal, The first automatic and touchscreen pet feeder

    Hi Bongo!

    It’s me again, Tammy the Marketing Coordinator at The Uncommon Dog. We just finished another informative info-graphic that I thought you might be interested in. It’s titled “How Dogs Became Our Best Friends!”.

    If you love dogs, like we do, then you’ll love this story. Recent scientific breakthroughs have increased our understanding about how dogs have come to play such an integral part of our daily lives. This fun and engaging info-graphic tells that story in a way that we hope makes it accessible and interesting to everyone.

    If you would like to share this info-graphic with your readers, please feel free to do so. You can find the info-graphic here: http://www.theuncommondog.com/how-dogs-became-our-best-friends.aspx Again, all we ask in return is that you link back to TheUncommonDog.com, in some way, from your post.

    Also, definitely let me know if you do decide to post it because we’d be happy to spread the word again about the blog post by linking to it from our Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ pages.

    If you’d like your e-mail removed from our mailing list, please let us know.

        Yes. Tula is a mix between a Jack Russell Terrier/ Dachshund mix. Momar is just a pure bred Chihuahua.

        The dog jail I was at is called the Sedona Humane Society. It’s a small local shelter.

        When I first started my blog my person had more time and she read lots of blog posts and I made lots of blogging friends. Then some of those friends started giving me awards. Now my person doesn’t even have time to post awards when I get them.

        My secretary person is just catching up with all my messages. I did get the FB message. I won’t let my person leave the computer until she answers it.

        Did you get my messages the other day? Did you already respond to them and they just didn’t come through? If yes, can you send the message again. I didn’t get it.

        Just in case if you don’t get my message from FB faster I’m just wanting to send it via wordpress thinking it would be shorter time waiting for your message.

        When’s your Birthday BongoDog? I also love the name of your FB page. ;)

        Tula, I don’t know when my birthday is because I was about three years old when my people rescued me from dog jail the shelter. So I celebrate my Gotcha Day instead. My Gotcha Day is February 6th.

        We got Tula from the Marin Humane Society– as you probably see because I posted it already a bunch of times.
