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.

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.

Who’s Locked Up?

Bongo in his dog jail on his new bedMy person kept going places all day today.

And every time she left I got locked in dog jail.

In and out.

In and out.

And it seemed like a lot more ins that outs.

But I got to thinking…

…because I’m a really smart dog.

And I came up with an idea.

Because it’s not really fair that I always have to go in dog jail…

…but the cats don’t.

.

So here’s my idea.

I’ll lure the cats in…

…and then I’ll shut the door.

Don’t you think this is a great idea?

Not My Mischief

Bongo sitting next to the bedSomebody has been up to mischief.

And it’s not me.

Because I’m the perfect dog.

So here’s the story.

It was night, and at night I always sleep on the floor next to my person’s bed.

I’m nice and quiet all night and never bother anybody.

Sometimes I get bothered.

Like when somebody wants to leave the room in the dark and the door hits my nose.

I’ve got to sleep by the door in order to guard it.

.

But Gizmo – remember him?

Well Gizmo sleeps right on top of my person’s bed.

I don’t know why she lets him do it, but she does.

And Gizmo always wakes my person up in the wee hours of the morning because he has to go out and do whatever he has to do.

That’s usually when the door hits my nose.

But Gizmo got that mischief bug in him last night.

He woke my person up and she got up to let him out of the room.

But he didn’t go out.

Instead he found a new spot on the bed.

My person’s spot.

Who Will Win?

Bongo on the trail looking upI was walking along my trails minding my own business when I looked up.

And in a tree were two birds.

.

.

.

.

.

I wonder what would happen if one of them decided to pull mischief on the other.

Hummingbird and hawk in a tree

Which one would win?

Hawk

Would it be the hawk?

Definitely the largest and most powerful of the two.

A tried and true hunter.

Would the hawk win?

Or would it be…

Hummingbird in a tree

…the hummingbird?

I’m going for the hummingbird.

That hummingbird already has it’s pointy beak aimed directly at the hawk.

One perfectly aimed dive bomb and that hawk will never know what hit him.

I’m voting for the little guy.

***

Unless the little guy turns out to be…

…a cat.

Sleeping Spots

Bongo curled up on the bathroom tileIn the summer when it’s hot one of my favorite places to sleep is in the bathroom.

On the nice, cool tile.

Plotting against me, I’m sure.

But something went wrong.

I’m not sure what happened.

Maybe there was a cat fight or something.

Gizmo, could you at least give me my mat back?
