Happy Thanksgiving from the Dog Hotel

24 Nov

Bongo at the Dog HotelHappy Thanksgiving! I guess my person is having lots of fun and eating good food and here I am sitting at the dog hotel. At least I have a lot of other dogs for company.

I’ve had a lot of time to think while I’m here and I thought maybe I’d tell you why my person takes me to the dog hotel when she leaves. I mean, it was one little incident and you’d think she’d get over it by now.

A dog named Lucky used to come over and visit us when his people went out of town. Lucky and I got along fine and my person would take us on walks together. So far, so good.

Well, one day my person decided to leave and she took me over to Lucky’s house. At my house my person has my tricks all figured out and she knows how to keep me from doing some really bad stuff, but here I was in another house. Time for an adventure. Let’s see what I can get into.

Lucky’s person thought she had the door to the garage closed and it was closed good enough to keep most dogs out – but not me. And that’s where she kept the dog food. Did I say kept? Yeah, that’s what I meant because by the time I got through with it there wasn’t much left. And then I couldn’t help myself. There was too much to hold until someone would let me out. Sorry.

I think Lucky’s person really had enough when I ran out the door and she had trouble catching me. Once I’m free I don’t like to get caught right away.

I only got to go to Lucky’s house once after that and my person came too. Lucky and I were in the backyard and our people were somewhere else so I jumped the fence to go find my person. She took me home and I’ve never been back since. So here I am at the dog hotel. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Oh Bongo. You are like my friend, Regal, who will eat and eat until there’s nothing left. I hope you didn’t get too sick from eating all of that dog food. I’m sure they’ll take great care of you at the dog hotel so you can’t get into mischief.

      Lola, I don’t like being kept from mischief, but my person says the dog hotel is the only way she can be sure I’m safe when she goes away. I think she should just stay home.

      Nancy, one little mistake and I have to pay for it every time my people go away.

    Bongo, your person just loves you so much she wants to keep you safe! You’ll be home before you know it!

      Wonderbutt’s person, I know my person wants to keep me safe – but I just wish she wouldn’t go away.

    Naughty Bongo. You and Mr. Sammo — 2 precocious canines. Sammo got in trouble today when he jumped the fence. My roommate put him in the pen twice, and he jumped back out; so she called me. He’s been incarcerated ever since I put him back and threatened him “with the bottle!” (It’s a 2 liter empty plastic soda bottle) I haven’t had to hit him with it in years; usually just the verbal threat is enough to make him behave. We’ll see what happened tonight. Do you think if I stuffed him with turkey, he’d be too fat and lazy to jump the fence?

    • Bongo

      November 26, 2011 at 10:33 am

      Sandra, stuffing me with food still doesn’t keep me from jumping the fence, but I think you should try it with Mr. Sammo. Even if it doesn’t work, he’ll be very happy.

    Well, Bongo, sometimes when you play you gotta pay. Your person is wise and loving to take you to the the doggie hotel so you will be safe and not pay too high a price for your playing.

    • Bongo

      November 26, 2011 at 10:33 am

      Patricia, it seems like I’m paying forever. Don’t you think she’d get over it sometime?

    Bongo, you’re just misunderstood. You obviously had good reasons for doing all that stuff. To be honest, I would’ve done the same. Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Bongo

      November 26, 2011 at 10:34 am

      Rumpy, I’m glad someone is on my side. I hope you had a good Thanksgiving.

    This is too funny. Interesting how you were able to still run so fast after finishing (almost) the dog food.

    And sounds like Lucky is your lucky charm. =)

    • Bongo

      November 26, 2011 at 10:36 am

      Nel, Running is my thing, but I really don’t have to run all that fast to keep away from people. They’re pretty slow.

      • Nel

        November 28, 2011 at 4:34 pm

        Running is a shared thing then. 🙂 We should run together sometime.

        Did you enjoy your stay at the dog hotel?

      • Bongo

        November 28, 2011 at 4:47 pm

        Nel, I would love to run with you sometime. The dog hotel was good, but it’s always best to be home.

    They got no sense of humour? I’m sure they do stuff that annoys you but do you go all nuts and put them in a cage? Of course not! You’re an individual, and they should respect that.

      Bones, you think they’d figure it out after awhile. They just don’t seem to get it.

    It all sounds reasonable to us Bongo but humans seem to have other ideas, huh? Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

      Brown Dawgs, I think I’ve got to work on training my people better. It seems like they’re thinking is a bit crazy. I hope your Thanksgiving was good.

    Hiya Bongo

    I’m having a sniff around some new friends and liked the look of your blog.

    We (well Misery Mistress and Master really) had a huge laugh at your story. I have never been to a doghotel though. I keep Master and Misery firmly in the house with me where they belong.

      Pippa, thanks for stopping by and nice to meet you. You’re so lucky. I haven’t figured out how to keep my people at home all the time.

    Oh dear Bongo, you are in the dog house aren’t you? I agree with Patricia’s comment p “sometimes when you play you gotta pay”.

    • Bongo

      November 26, 2011 at 10:41 am

      Bassa, I guess you’re right, but it seems like I’ve been paying for a very long time for one little incident.

    I would say that was a pretty crazy adventure you had there! Doggy hotels can be pretty cool. : )

      Just Ramblin’ Pier, home is much more peaceful. I’ll be back there soon.

    Bongo I love your sense of adventure but I agree with your person- the dog hotel is the way to go. That’s where our pups go when they aren’t lucky enough to come with us. Hope you and your person had a nice Thanksgiving.

      November 27, 2011 at 10:08 pm

      Deannamelanie, I’ll be glad to be home tomorrow. My person says she had a great Thanksgiving.

    Dear Bongo,

    I like you very much! But I do hope that when you come to Brussels one day, that you will behave better… If you do, you will be spoiled with Belgian cuisine 🙂

    • Bongo

      November 29, 2011 at 3:37 pm

      Sweet Kitten, I will try to put on my best behavior. That Belgian cuisine sounds yummy.

    Hee hee! I’m enjoying catching up on all your posts. You’re obviously just too clever for those humans, except maybe for Houdini but he’s not around any more. I’m sure you were well looked after on Thanksgiving. Flo has disgraced herself more than once when she has been looked after by Aunty J but thankfully Aunty J loves flo SO much that she forgives her. Aunty J’s dog has also been known to disgrace himself, so she understands!

      Flo, you’re lucky that Aunty J loves you so she’ll look after you no matter what. My Aunty lives too far away for me to stay with her. I have been accused of being Houdini. I look up to him.

    Oh Bongo, you really were rather naughty so its not surprising that you go to the dog Hotel. I am sure that is was a good place to go as I am sure that your human would not let you go there if it was not nice, also you did have lots of company to talk too.

    I have 5 of you,Lucky and Trudy are very naughty, Charley is disobedient most times, Rosie is very old and so is Guido ..he is 15. We live in Bulgaria with our two humans and two donkeys called Daisy and Maya and a cat called Stumpy as he only has three legs and a stumpy tail..

    lots of licks and sniffs to you and to your pussy friend and your humans

      Misswhiplash, nice to meet you. Thanks for stopping by. Sounds like you have lots of cool animals in your family. Do they all get along? I think I would get along really well with Lucky, Trudy, and Charley.

    Now that you’re home, I am able to check out your holiday stay over. Looks like you were able to cruise around and impress the others.

    • Bongo

      December 1, 2011 at 4:56 pm

      Karen, they were definitely impressed with me – and those other dogs didn’t even know I have a blog.
