Want a Kiss?

24 Oct

My new girlfriendI think I’m in love. No, I’m not talking about a Mrs. Bongo. That’s not in the picture. Today I was walking along the trail minding my own business when this little girl came walking toward me. And man, oh man, this little girl was just the right height. We were face to face. Perfect for kissing. Those nice, big, juicy, slobbery kisses. I just love to give ‘em. And if someone wants to give me one back, that’s fine too.

But you know what? She kind of held me at a distance. You know how those things are. I like you a lot, but I just want to be friends. Talk about total rejection. Friends. And all I wanted to do was kiss her. I won’t even tell. I promise.

Total dejection. But I’m not the kind of dog that stays dejected for long. I’m up and at ‘em. Always on the go. Happy go lucky me. If she won’t kiss me I’ll do something else. I think I’ll go kiss her dad.

Kissing Dad

      A big kiss from Belgium sounds awesome.

        Oh yes, we Belgians are great kissers! My fiance left Denmark for Belgium to receive his daily dosis of kisses 🙂

    It’s always so fun to meet friends on a trail! Glad you got to kiss someone. Gertie loves to kiss kids.

      Andrea, I think kids are fun to kiss, but usually when I do I get called a slobbery dog.

    Well, a kiss from the dad is better than no kiss at all huh sweet Bongo….we give and get lots of kisses around here so if you were near you could get in lots of kisses. Hugs and nose kisses

    • BongoDogOwner

      October 24, 2011 at 11:38 am

      Mumsy, I’ll take kisses from anyone who will give them to me. Hugs and nose kisses to you too.

    Bongo, I send you kisses and hugs from the land of corn fields and soy beans. I’ll just bet that sweet little girl probably hasn’t had a wonderful 4-legged pal like you before, so she’s probably just a teeny bit afraid. But I’m also sure that fear would quickly disappear and you’d have her giggling in delight in no time with a few more visits.

    • BongoDogOwner

      October 24, 2011 at 11:39 am

      Lindy, I guess I was kind of big and scary to her, but you’re right. I’m sure I could get her to warm up to me if I had the chance.

    Love that you’re so friendly, Bongo! I love to meet dogs like that. My Boxer girl would give you kisses, but I’d fight her for the right. Such cute photos!

    • BongoDogOwner

      October 24, 2011 at 11:40 am

      Katie, thanks. I’ll kiss both you and your Boxer girl.

    awww, how sweet! Bongo are you in my neck of the woods? Your turf sure looks familiar!

      Amy thanks. I’m in Sedona.

    I really enjoyed your story and I see we have a lot in common, I too love writing about my babies (2 Jack Russell’s) I don’t have any children of my own so I feel so very blessed to have these 2 creatures God created and named them after Himself backwards. Bongo is so cute.

      Thanks for stopping by Tri. Dogs are really special. Bongo has great fun with his blog.

    This is a wonderful testament to the persistence of dog love and doggie decorum, Bongo.

    The SamHenry and the Imp say hello. It’s so refreshing to find dog prose on the web. It’s honest and to the point. In fact, you look as if you have some pointer in you – say German short-haired? One of my favorite types of dog. No matter what you have in you, Bongo, you are your own “person.” We are all unique and so there just is NOT another Bongo anywhere here on earth. Kindest regards, wuf, SH.

      SamHenry, thanks for all the kind remarks. When my people took me home with them they were told I was a pointer mix. Not sure but I think that means I’m all mixed up.

      • samhenry

        October 24, 2011 at 5:33 pm

        I knew there had to be pointer in there somewhere. One of my favorite dogs is a German short-haired pointer. But as I said, Bongo is Bongo – unique even if he were all pointer. That’s just how it is.

        I had a friend who walked ’round the block today to let me know that she suddenly missed Sam Henry as she neared my house. Sam died a year ago last April. Talk about a special dog spirit, he received over 10 cards (not e-mails) and flowers. He was loved and his sense of humor noted by all. He had a broad smile. Imp taught him to jump up about 3 feet off the ground and to go to the bathroom like a girl. Yes, he was unique. Bongo’s personality really comes through your work as an interpreter.

        Are you and your family up in Red Rock Country? Parents used to live in Arizona. Off to an early bedtime. In winter – why bother to remain conscious.

        Sorry to hear that Sam Henry is no longer with you. It sounds like Sam was unique, and you’re right – Bongo is definitely unique. Yes, we live in Sedona – in the heart of Red Rock Country.

    I see you’re an equal opportunity kisser! Me too. Don’t let me forget to send an email. My typist has had a wicked bad Monday so it might be tomorrow before that happens.

    • BongoDogOwner

      October 24, 2011 at 6:15 pm

      Rumpy, everyone is good for kissing, aren’t they? I’m looking forward to your email.

    Sedona – oh stop my heart. There used to be a little inn there decorated out in Pierre Deux French fabrics from Provence. It is a precious place. I know that they have pretty much carved up the Senoran Dessert. My parents lived on Pinnacle Peak, Scottsdale. We had a lovely view of the city and valley below and the line of air pollution from the cars along the highway. That air pollution was supposed to be smelters in Mexico. NOT. I LOVED the desert. I will have to search your site for more pics. I may do a post on my parents’ home. It was not large and looked like a piece of sculpture.

    • BongoDogOwner

      If you have to live in the Valley, Scottsdale is one of the nicer places – and the desert is great. Two of my posts “Almost up the Chimney” and “Exploring Sugarloaf” have a lot of red rock pics. I’ll also be posting another one full of pics in the next day or two from the hike we took on Saturday.

    PS – I was always Sam’s secretary and I took on his name when he died as my nom de plume or however it is spelled. I was his servant.

    • BongoDogOwner

      October 24, 2011 at 7:08 pm

      I can understand the servant thing. I’m Bongo’s servant as well.

    Bongo, please don’t kiss skins, you don’t know where they’ve been or what you might catch!!!

    • BongoDogOwner

      October 26, 2011 at 9:50 am

      Bones, sometimes I just can’t help myself. A little kiss can’t hurt, can it?

    Kisses are always good!!! Especially big slobbery kisses. Love ya Bongo! 🙂

    • BongoDogOwner

      October 26, 2011 at 9:53 am

      Geraldine, I’m sending a big slobbery kiss your way.

    I understand, Bongo – she is a cutie I could not withstand the temptation to kiss her all over her sweet face and hands myself.
    And now, I must go and check my Dashboard to find out the reason for I haven’t seen your latest postings immediately. I’ll be back soon. b0ng0

      B0ng0, that little girl was such a cutie. I love meeting little ones on the trail.

    Maybe she was wondering if you could give her a lift as her feet were tired, but was too shy to ask?

    • BongoDogOwner

      November 9, 2011 at 3:26 pm

      I don’t usually do doggie rides, but I’d consider it for that little girl. She was cute.
