About Bongo

I am a dog who has lots of mini adventures that I love to share. I live with a cat named Scratchy who sometimes steals my blog, and with two people. When my adventures don't turn out so well I get my person to laugh while she helps me write my blog and then I don't get into as much trouble.

What Did I do with My Summer Vacation?

Bongo on the trail with flowersThis is ridiculous! My last post right before this one has snow in it.

Right now it’s so hot that if snow showed up it would sizzle away.

So I’m sneaking on the computer while my person isn’t looking and writing a new post.

Besides, today is my blogiversary.

Four years of blogging.

Well, it would have been four years if I’d actually been blogging the last few months.

So, since I haven’t posted since the snow was on the ground, and the kids who live near me are already back in school I thought I’d do a “What did I do with my Summer Vacation” kind of post.

Oh. What did I do?

Oh yeah. I got to hang out some with my little buddy.

It wasn’t me. It’s his fault we’re in jail.


And my puddle came back!

And the tadpoles came with it.

Puddle with tadpoles

I’ve been watching those tadpoles grow for awhile, but for some reason my person won’t let me get in the puddle with them. No fair!

Oh yeah, and there were those two times in the dog hotel when my person went off without me.

But the best time I had all summer was when my person’s friend invited her to go to the creek with her – and then she invited me along too.

There was only one problem.

Next time we need to go to a creek that has smaller sticks.

Transformed Puddle

Bongo sniffing a bush with snowy rocks behind him

I made my person go for a walk with me in the rain today.

It was fun. There were streams everywhere.

But I was so startled by one stream that my person actually let me do a blog post for the first time in a long time.

Well, maybe it was because her class got cancelled because there’s snow where her school is.

Anyway, here it is!

Bongo and a stream among the rocks

My puddle is no longer a puddle.

It has transformed into a stream.

On second thought, I think it’s a bathtub.

It’s got a natural sponge – and bubbles.

Bongo playing with the foam

Do you think this puddle will get me clean?

The Almost Really Good Day

Today was a really good day.

Well, it started out good.

My buddy came over for a visit.

We had a great time playing catch – but then, he decided my younger person’s Legos were more interesting.

Bongo putting a ball in a box full of Legos

So I had to drop my ball in the Lego box.


That must have gotten his attention…

Bongo and his buddy on a walk in the snow

…because after that he let me take him for a walk.

In the snow.

Bongo eating snow near some icicles

I don’t know anything about icicles, but this snow sure tastes good.


But then my buddy got out of control.

He sent a truck after me.

But a picture doesn’t do this horrible truck justice.

Warning: The following video contains explicit language –

oh, never mind. Only my dog friends will understand what I’m saying.

My buddy deserved some real punishment for this.

Bongo's buddy in the dog jail

So I locked him in dog jail.

And for good measure, I locked Gizmo in there with him.

After all, Gizmo used to be my buddy’s cat before he came to live at my house.


Hey, wait a minute!

Bongo and his buddy both locked in dog jail

How did I end up in here too?

A dog just can’t win around here.

The Best Way to End the Year

Bongo playing in the snow

Finally, my person is letting me post again.

I posed for so many pictures today that she didn’t know what else to do.

Anyway, this was the best way to end the year – and the only time all year I had snow to play in.

Bongo dragging a frisbee in the snow

One of my favorite things to do is drag a Frisbee through the snow.

Bongo looking for his frisbee in the snow

Now where did that Frisbee go?

Bongo in the snow with a frisbee in his mouth

Here it is!

I found it.

Gizmo peeking out the door

Hey Gizmo, come out here!

This is so much fun!

Bongo standing in the snow with a defiant look

Are you serious, Gizmo?

There is no way I’m coming back in the house.

Well, maybe – if I can go out the other door and head to my trails.

Bongo sniffing a snowman

Hey, who is this invading my front yard?

Looks like some kind of alien or something.

All I can say is, you’d better not be here when I get back –

 -or I’m turning you yellow.

Bongo sniffing a bush in the snow

Speaking of yellow, there’s got to be some yellow snow around here.

They tell me it carries the best messages.

Bongo sniffing another bush in the snow


There’s no yellow snow here either.

Agave plants covered in snow

These snow creatures must have eaten it all.

Bongo in his puddle that is almost covered in snow

Hey, what happened to my puddle?

It’s changed.

I guess not everybody likes snow the way I do.

I hope you pop out of it soon, puddle.

Bongo standing in the snow

Are you coming people?

Bongo on a snowy trail looking back

Come on!

Don’t worry about that puddle.

It’ll get over it.

Bongo waiting for his younger person to throw a snowball


Okay, throw the ball.

I’m ready.

Bongo watching his younger person with a snowball

I see that ball.

C’mon, throw it!

Bongo in the snow with a sad look

What do you mean, our walk is over?

Happy New Year everybody!

The Box

Bongo and a boxHey person, you want to take my picture for why?

You won’t help me post on my blog anymore, so what good is my picture going to do you?

I don’t think I want to pose for you.




Oh, wait! What?

That box is for me?

Bongo happily sitting near a box

Now I get it!

That box has treats in it – for me!

I got these because you needed to order a little bit more so you could get free shipping?

You’re so strange, person.

I don’t care how I get my treats – free shipping or not.

As long as I get them.

Bongo with his nose in a box

There’s just one problem with these treats.

Bongo sitting with a package of treats

They’re still in the package.

I’m having trouble sitting still waiting for them.

Bongo eating a treat

Now you’re talking!

But I hope you don’t mind if I don’t sit still until after I’ve eaten my treat.
