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.

Now you’re talking!

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

NaNoWoofMo is Here!

Bongo with sunglasses onI finally figured out a way to get my person to help me with another blog post.

And I didn’t even have to have an adventure to do it.

Because another dog is in the middle of an adventure.

You see, my friends at Rocco’s House invited me to take part in NaNoWoofMo for the second year in a row. It’s great fun and any pet blogger – even cats – can take part by picking a day to write a chapter. There’s still lots of days open so stop by Rocco’s House and leave a comment if you’d like to take part. All the links to each day’s chapter will be there too.

The story started at Rocco’s House, then continued on with my buddy Kuruk, travelled over to Hailey and Zaphod’s blog and now here it is on mine.

So here goes:

I could hear the hollow sound as someone stepped on a loose board before I noticed the silhouette of a man on the porch. He held a long stick by his side.

“It’s those coyotes again,” the man said.

I watched as the man raised that stick and pointed it directly at me.

Crack!

The sound deafened me and at the same time something buried itself into the ground near my front paw, raising a pile of dust.

I ran deeper into the shadows.

The man shook his head and went back inside.

The smell of bacon had grown even stronger as it had escaped out the once opened door. My tummy rumbled.

As I lay in the dark wondering how to get that bacon, a sharp pain moved up my back, beginning from the area where I had cut myself on the fence.

I yelped.

***

Oh no, we have to wait till tomorrow to find out what happens next when Swami Zoe takes over. I can’t wait to read more of the story.

Wait a minute. Isn’t Swami Zoe a cat?

Oh, I guess I did say that cats can take part in this too.

 

As long as they have their own blog and don’t try to steal the blog of the dog they live with.

The Worst Mischief Ever!

Bongo with a sad lookMy person has come up with the worst mischief ever!

And it all has to do with that B word.

You know, the one that’s spelled B-U-S-Y.

You see, my person has helped me post my blog almost every day for a long time now.

But she says she needs a break.

So she’s only going to help me post when I have a really good adventure.

I don’t get it. Don’t I have really good adventures every day?

But the worst thing is that I’ll miss all the visits and comments from all the good friends I’ve made.

I’m gonna miss you guys (and girls).

But my person said maybe – just maybe, she might help me post more often to my Facebook page.

So if you haven’t already checked it out, hop on over to https://www.facebook.com/BongoDogBlog and see what’s there. Maybe even “Like” my page.

That would be awesome.

***

But my person did say I could still post all my really good adventures.

And I sure had one today.

Awhile ago this cute girl dog passed me on the trails and came running over to play with me.

Well today, this same cute girl dog left her people and went out of her way to find me and play with me.

Trail Stone Stack Tour

Bongo and a stack of stones in a dry washStacks of stones have been showing up on my trails in all shapes and sizes lately.

So I thought I’d give you a trail stone stack tour.

It might be kind of fun.

Anyway, I call the stack in this first picture a wash stack.

Because the stones are stacked in the dry wash on my trails.

That’s a pretty original name I came up with, don’t you think?

.

***

A more recent kind of stack is what I call the mini stacks.

They come in various types.

Small stone stacks on a rock

Like these mini stacks on a rock.

Bongo near a post with stones stacked on top

Or this one on a post.

Wait. I don’t see a mini stack here.

Where is it?

I think my person’s fooling me about seeing a mini stack here.

***

Now here’s the latest invention in stone stacks.

Bongo and a stone stack that blends into the background

Well, I think it’s the latest invention.

I call it the camouflaged stack.

Hmmm.

I wonder how long this has been here.

What’s an Eclipse?

Bongo looking toward the sunThere was a partial solar eclipse around here.

My person says that eclipse showed up at other places too, but I only know what happens around my house.

Actually, I don’t always know what happens around my house.

Like, what is an eclipse anyway?

My person says it’s when the moon goes in front of the sun and it looks like somebody took a bite out of the sun.

I wonder if it tasted good.

.

.

.

My people put on special glasses so they could look at the eclipse.

But they didn’t give any of those glasses to me.

I don’t know why they wanted to look at a silly old eclipse anyway.

If somebody’s eating the sun and they’re not sharing any with me then they can have their eclipse and eat it too.

Bongo yawning

This is what I think of that eclipse.

I’ll find somebody else to give me treats.

Now that’s strange.

Too Many Houses

Bongo sniffing the ground under a juniper treeHmmm.

There’s something different about this tree.

Person, what do you mean, I’m looking in the wrong spot?

There’s what?

Oh.

.

 

.

Bird house in a juniper tree

There’s something different in this tree.

What is that thing?

It doesn’t look natural.

It’s a what?

Bird house on tree trunk

A bird house?

Well that doesn’t make sense.

First they kick their nest house out of the tree in my yard.

And then they go putting up a fancier house in a tree on my trails.

And it doesn’t look like anybody’s even living in that house.

Some lucky bird!

I wish I had more houses than I knew what to do with.

But all I have is a …

Bongo leaving his dog jail

…dog jail.
