Climbing School

Bongo looking at a vehicle with a paw print and a climbing school signI was heading out to my trails when something caught my attention in the parking lot.

The only obvious conclusion is that they are offering a climbing school for dogs.

Or maybe a climbing school with dogs as the instructors.

That would make sense.

Us four leggers are much better at climbing than two leggers.

And we could teach them a thing or two.

I bet they’re up there on my trails somewhere.

Probably heading for those tall rocks.

And I’m going after them.

Bongo heading up the trail

Come on, person. Don’t slow me down.

I’ve got to go sign up to teach climbing.

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.

The Friendliest Dog

When I’m on my trails my person won’t let me get near any dogs that aren’t already my friends.

I don’t know how I’m supposed to make new friends if I can’t get near them.

But this cute little number…

Bongo sniffing noses with another dog

…ran right up to me.

My person had no chance to put a damper on things.

And now I have a new girlfriend.

See, I get along fine with other dogs.

But could you just do something about my arch enemy – you know, that German Shepherd who lives around the corner from us?

Person, if you don’t stop talking to her person I’m going to give that dog what for again.

Only dogs I like are allowed on my trails.

Send the others away and I’ll get along with every dog I meet.

And I’ll be the friendliest dog around.

One Down – One More Up

Bongo's face in front of the computerI finally got my computer unlocked.

You see, yesterday Gizmo locked up my computer and I wasn’t able to post on my blog.

I hope nobody was worried about me.

Anyway, I’m back now.

And as soon as I finish here I’m going after Gizmo.

.

.

Wait! What?

Oh no. There’s something I’ve gotta do first.

I just can’t win.

I finally unravel Gizmo’s mischievous deed and now I just learned that my person has been up to mischief.

She went to a lake today.

Without me.

And what did she do?

gaggle of geese

She hung out with a gaggle of geese.

She could have at least gone swimming.

No More Mischief

Gizmo looking away from the computerThis is Gizmo here.

Today is Monday Mischief and I hear that Bongo’s been blaming me for all his mischief.

Bongo is full of mischief, and then to make things worse he tries to put the blame on me and Scratchy.

So in order to keep him from blaming us for any more mischief, I’m locking his computer before he can get on it.

He’ll be spending the rest of the day trying to figure out how to get it unlocked.

Gizmo stretched out on the couch

And I can relax.

Go Get Peter

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornelius_the_Centurion#mediaviewer/File:Gerbrand_van_den_Eeckhout_-_Vision_of_Cornelius_the_Centurion_-_Walters_372492.jpgI bet Peter got lots of treats for what he did in last week’s story.

You know, when he raised Dorcas from the dead in Joppa.

He became a celebrity in Joppa after that.

That’s probably why he stayed there for awhile.

I bet everyone liked him so much that they were always giving him treats.

What do you mean, he was being obedient to Jesus and he didn’t care about the treats?

I’d care.

You want me to listen to more of the story?

Do I get treats for listening?

***

At Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion in what was known as the Italian Regiment.

***

What does Cornelius have to do with Peter?

Okay, I’ll listen.

***

Cornelius and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly.

***

Did he give Peter treats?

Maybe he’ll give me treats.

***

One day at about three in the afternoon he had a vision. He distinctly saw an angel of God, who came to him and said, “Cornelius!”

Cornelius stared at him in fear. “What is it, Lord?” he asked.

***

That angel must not have had any treats with him.

Otherwise he wouldn’t have been scary.

I am listening.

***

The angel answered, “Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God. Now send men to Joppa to bring back a man named Simon who is called Peter. He is staying with Simon the tanner, whose house is by the sea.

***

Wait a minute.

If Cornelius makes Peter leave Joppa where he’s famous, then won’t Peter be going to a place where he’s not famous?

Who will give him treats then?

***

When the angel who spoke to him had gone, Cornelius called two of his servants and a devout soldier who was one of his attendants. He told them everything that had happened and sent them to Joppa.

***

You mean I have to wait until next week’s story to find out if Peter is going to leave all those treats and go with Cornelius’ servants?

Oh, wait.

That means I still have a week to hang out with Peter and get some of his treats.

Trail Spa

Bongo sniffing hair on the groundWhat is this?

Hmmm. It smells pretty good.

Kind of like one of my dog friends.

Wait a minute!

It is one of my dog friends.

Well, at least the hair of one of my dog friends.

.

Bongo sniffing more hair on the ground

There’s dog hair all over around here.

Somebody has turned this into a dog grooming trail.

A lot has happened on my trails, but this is the first I’ve heard of anyone being groomed on my trails.

Hey person, how come you don’t groom me here?

This looks like the spot to do it.

But wait a minute.

If somebody’s turning my trails into a grooming spot –

the next thing they’ll probably do is turn them into a fancy spa.

And they’ll probably do something like turn it all…

Sunset turning the trail pink

…pink.

Oh dear.

I might have to look for a new trail.

Pink and purple sunset sky

Yikes!

I’m outta here!
