Thunder Mischief

Bongo leaving his dog jailI’m not sure who was up to the most mischief this weekend.

My people or the thunder.

On Saturday my person waited until almost the end of the day to let me take her for a walk.

She had some excuse about it being too hot.

So by the time she finally said we could go, we couldn’t.

Because the thunder had shown up.

There’s no way I’m going out there when there’s thunder.

I mean, what if it comes and grabs me and takes me back into the sky with it.

And then drops me.

Or what if it chases me all the way up a mountain.

No, I don’t trust that thunder at all.

But that wasn’t all the mischief.

On Sunday my people locked me in dog jail.

And left me.

And it rained real hard.

It made so much noise on the roof that my dog bed got wet too.

We must have a leaky roof.

Person, if you type that I’m calling you on more mischief.

I can’t help it if I get things wet when I’m scared.

Loud rain is scary.

Then my people came back home and the thunder must have followed them, because it thundered the whole rest of the day.

I hope my trails are still around.

I haven’t been able to check on them for two days now.

But here’s the worst part.

My people left me in dog jail again.

And this time it thundered and rained.

I think the only one I can still trust around here is my sneaky squeaky snake.

Up to No Good

Bongo in his dog jail on his new bedI was hanging out in my dog jail – actually I was locked in my dog jail –

When Gizmo did what he does best.

Gizmo was up to no good.

He tried to steal my frog.

But Gizmo didn’t realize I’d sent my snake to get him.

There’s more than one way to skin a cat.

The Visitor

Bongo in dog jail looking sadI’m not sure who was up to the most mischief today.

My person, or the visitor.

You see, my person saw a visitor in our driveway today and you know what she did?

She came in, got her camera, and locked me in jail!

You hear that?

She locked me in dog jail.

I wanted to visit the visitor, and she locked me in dog jail.

.

 

And then she went out to take pictures.

And what was that visitor doing in my yard?

And what was it doing hanging around waiting for my person to get her camera?

We’ve seen a couple snakes on my trails lately.

And my person used some excuse about them hiding before she could get her camera out, and she wouldn’t take any pictures.

But this snake – in my yard – hangs around waiting until my person gets back outside with her camera.

Without me.

I think my person and that snake had this all planned out.

Just wait till I get my paws on my person’s camera.

We’ll see who visits my yard then.

Missing the Photo Ops

Bongo profile on the trailWe heard a really bad flute player on my trails today.

She was hanging out with the rock piles.

But my person wouldn’t take a picture.

Something about embarrassing the flute player.

I don’t know why she would have been embarrassed by having her picture taken.

Now if my person had recorded her playing the flute she probably would have hid under all those rock piles.

It would have been really embarrassing.

So we walked on and we saw a snake.

And my person still wouldn’t take a picture.

Something about the snake hiding before she could get her camera out.

She could have just yanked it by the tail before it got away.

It didn’t have one of those rattler things on it that I’m not supposed to play with.

But that didn’t happen.

So what does my person take a picture of?

Penstemon

Flowers!

Do you believe it?

All those good photo opportunities and she takes pictures of flowers.

So I decided I was going to do something about those flowers so my person couldn’t take any more pictures of them.

Bongo with penstemon around him

Help!

Those flowers must be powered by aliens.

Bird Droppings

I’ve got another mystery going on. Right on my street this time. So I’ve put on my Detective Dog hat and I’m off to investigate.

Bongo with Detective Dog hat covering his eyesWhatever it is, it doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to leave, so I’ve got plenty of time for my investigation.

The man who walked by with his little dog seemed to be a bit concerned though. He told his dog to stay away from it and made a point of telling my person it was there.

I’m not sure why it isn’t leaving. These things usually don’t hang out when dogs start bothering them. I hardly ever even come across one.

Wait a minute. This thing isn’t moving at all. Does that mean it can’t move?

It can’t be dead because anything dead in the street is squashed flat. This is definitely not flat.

Maybe it’s playing dead, hoping it will be ignored.

I don’t think these guys are smart enough to do that though.

Maybe a bird accidently dropped it as it flew by.

That’s it! There’s some bird out there who knew I needed something to investigate so the bird dropped this right at the end of my driveway. Right where I would find it.

That bird must love me.

The Snake Did It

Toy snake and torn up boxLook at this! Just look at this! Look what my snake did while you were gone, person.

I tried to stop him. Really I did.

But he got to that box and tore it apart before I could get to him.

It was a good thing that box was empty, because it used to be full of my treats. I would have been really upset if my snake had torn up that box and eaten all the treats out of it.

Bad snake!

Person, he’s really a sneaky snake. I didn’t even hear him tearing up that box.

I just came out here and it was already torn apart.

What am I going to do with this snake?

What do you think I should do, person?

I know. I’m going to give that snake what for.

He’ll never know what hit him.

See if that snake ever tears up one of my boxes again.

Scratchy or the Snake

Bongo and ScratchyThis is kind of a sad story for an adventure, but a dog’s got to do what a dog’s got to do.

You see, my person still didn’t take me for a walk today. But it was a really nice day so she thought maybe we could go sit out in the yard for awhile.

That worked pretty good. It felt really great to lie and soak up the sun.

But then my person thought maybe Scratchy would like to come out too.

I don’t know what she was thinking. She was breaking her own rules. Scratchy’s not allowed outside.

But my person said Scratchy doesn’t run off anymore so she knew he would stay in the yard.

So she brought him out and sat him on her lap. If you’re wondering what that black blob is in front of my handsome face, you guessed it. It’s Scratchy.

Scratchy being on my person’s lap meant he was getting more attention than me so I decided to give Scratchy some attention. I went over and kissed him – right on his face – a bunch of times.

Scratchy eventually took a dive off my person’s lap and then I went after him some more and he ran back in the house.

Now I could have all the attention again, but that meant I no longer had Scratchy to harass.

So you know what I did? I went in and brought out my snake. My snake’s good for a harassment or two.

But my person spoiled all the fun. She made me take my snake back inside.

It’s no fun harassing a snake in the house.

Mischief Challenge

Bongo and SnakeThis is the third day that my person hasn’t taken me for a walk. And all because of some bug she says she has. I’m not sure what she’s talking about. I don’t see any bugs around her.

And I’m thinking she could just get some bug spray to get rid of that bug if she doesn’t want it. But who am I to know.

At least she’s not hanging out in her bed all the time now, but all she does is sit on the couch and read.

Come on person, at least help me answer some of the comments on my blog.

And then take me for a walk.

It’s kind of nice having my person home all the time, but there’s a few things I miss about having her leave the house.

It’s really hard to get into mischief when she’s here. No messing up the bed, no stealing the cat food, and I can’t even get those treats from the litter box. My person threw all those treats out today. How could she?

Well, I figure if I can’t get into any mischief right now, maybe my toy snake can help me.

My person is going to have a hard time getting stuff out of the printer with a snake in the way.

Lifted Up

The Brazen Serpent, by Benjamin West; among th...

The Brazen Serpent, by Benjamin West; among the overthrown, an unmistakable reference to the Laocoön (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Hey person, were those Israelites finally happy after Moses struck that rock and got water to come out?

What do you mean, they had more problems? It seems like one thing or another is always happening to them.

They wanted to go through Edom and the king wouldn’t let them? What’s with that king? Doesn’t he know who he’s dealing with? After all, those Israelites have me on their side.

Yes, I’m listening person.

So the Israelites had to go along the route to the Red Sea in order to go around Edom, and they grew impatient and started complaining again.

Weren’t they going the wrong direction? I might start complaining too.

I am listening.

The Israelites complained that there was no bread or water, and they were really sick of that manna stuff.

I guess the Lord was sick of their complaining because He sent venomous snakes among them and some people got bit and died.

I guess it takes a lot to get those people’s attention.

The people went to Moses and admitted that they’d sinned against him and against the Lord, and asked Moses to pray to the Lord to take the snakes away.

Then the Lord told Moses to make a bronze snake and put it on a pole. When anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake he would live.

That must have been some magical snake. Maybe we should get one like that.

What do you mean we have one like that in a way?

Jesus was lifted up like the snake? Jesus isn’t a snake.

Oh. Jesus said that just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert He would be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life.

But person, it’s almost Christmas time when Jesus comes as a little baby. Why would anyone lift up a little baby like that?

Jesus grew up? Really? I hope he doesn’t grow up too fast. I want to make sure to get my Christmas presents.

***

Oh, I almost forgot. Speaking of being lifted up, I got so excited about Christmas coming that I almost forgot that I have something to celebrate today. Today is National Mutt Day. So I thought I would show you a picture of one of my favorite mutts.

Bongo

Shouldn’t I get some presents for National Mutt Day? After all, this is my special day.
