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.

Posting My Colors

Scratchy here.

Since Bongo hasn’t been on his blog for a few days I might as well take advantage of it.

This is a perfect day to post my colors.

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.

Woo woo! I think she’s gonna kiss me!

Filled with the Spirit

Peter and CorneliusI’m still trying to figure Peter out.

He got famous in Joppa by raising that lady from the dead, so you’d think he’d want to stay there because the people are probably giving him all kinds of treats and things.

But now these other guys showed up and asked Peter to come with him and he’s just going to go.

Leave all those treats behind.

Or maybe they offered Peter even more treats.

Okay, I’ll listen.

***

The next day Peter started out with them, and some of the brothers from Joppa went along.

***

Now I get it.

Peter brought along some of the people who would give him treats.

I am listening.

***

The following day he arrived in Caesarea. Cornelius was expecting them and had called together his relatives and close friends.

***

A party?

There’s lots of food at a party.

I’ll listen. I’ll listen.

***

As Peter entered the house, Cornelius met him and fell at his feet in reverence.

***

Oh, I get it now.

Peter is even more famous in Caesarea.

***

But Peter made him get up. “Stand up,” he said, “I am only a man myself.”

***

Peter, you blew it.

You really should have taken advantage of that.

I would have.

***

Talking with him, Peter went inside and found a large gathering of people. He said to them: “You are well aware that it is against our law for a Jew to associate with a Gentile or visit him. But God has shown me that I should not call any man impure or unclean. So when I was sent for, I came without raising any objection. May I ask why you sent for me?”

***

Peter, they’re just trying to get your treats from you.

I am too listening.

***

Cornelius answered, “Four days ago I was in my house praying at this hour, at three in the afternoon. Suddenly a man in shining clothes stood before me and said, ‘Cornelius, God has heard your prayer and remembered your gifts to the poor. Send to Joppa for Simon who is called Peter. He is a guest in the home of Simon the tanner, who lives by the sea.’ So I sent for you immediately, and it was good of you to come. Now we are all here in the presence of God to listen to everything the Lord has commanded you to tell us.

***

Peter, tell them to give you treats.

***

Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.

***

Does that include dogs?

***

You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all. You know what has happened throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John preached – how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.

***

That must have been a safer place after Jesus got through with it.

I bet everybody was even nicer to the dogs.

***

We are witnesses of everything he did in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. The killed him by hanging him on a tree, …

***

I don’t get it.

Jesus made that place safer and they killed him for it?

Alright, I’ll keep listening.

I think I ran out of things to say anyway.

***

 

…but God raised him from the dead on the third day and caused him to be seen. He was not seen by all the people, but by witnesses whom God had already chosen – by us who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead. All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”

***

So if I believe in Jesus I’m forgiven for all my mischief?

Woo woo!

***

While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message. The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles. For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God.

***

I guess those Jewish believers thought they were special, but God showed them.

God thinks everyone is special.

Even us dogs.

***

Then Peter said, “Can anyone keep these people from being baptized with water? They have received the Holy Spirit just as we have.” So he ordered that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked Peter to stay with them for a few days.

***

I want to be baptized.

It’s kind of like swimming, isn’t it?

And then afterwards, we can celebrate with treats.

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.
