Bongo Checking Out the CookiesYay! My person finally did it. After all the hard work I’ve been doing cleaning up the kitchen floor lately she finally decided to reward me. I didn’t know it at first. I went to clean the floor as usual, and something tasted a little different. I didn’t know why.

And then when my person pulled those cookies out of the oven they smelled different. They didn’t smell like the usual run of the mill people cookies that she’s been making lately.

And then I got the best surprise of all. My person gave me a cookie. She let me eat one. Sweet!!! She said she got the recipe from one of my blogging buddies at For the Love of My Dogs. You can check the recipe out here. My person would never have made me cookies if she hadn’t seen that post so I am really thankful. It would be great if all my dog blogging friends got special cookies for Christmas.

But you know what my person did after she made those cookies? She packaged them up and put a bow on top and put them in the freezer. She said I don’t get any more cookies until Christmas. She said they’re a Christmas present for me.

What’s with this Christmas thing? I want my cookies now!

If you want to see more of my Christmas wishes (and Scratchy’s too – my person made me mention Scratchy) then hop on over to Rumpy’s blog. He posted our letters to Santa Paws.

      Rumpy, I hope I didn’t get on Jen’s bad side by telling you about my cookies. Tell her they’re really easy to make. Merry Christmas to you too.

    Those treats look great, Bongo! Can you share them with people, too?

      Deannamelanie, thanks for the recipe. The cookies are really good – even if I do have to wait for Christmas for most of them. Merry Christmas to you too.

    Cookies! Even though you have to wait, I bet they will be worth it!

    Merry Christmas to you!

      Brown Dawgs, I’m having trouble waiting, but my person gave me another cookie this morning. I guess she didn’t put them all in the freezer. Merry Christmas!

    Oh, waiting for Christmas is the hardest thing, Bongo. It’s a torture device big people use on little people and animals. 🙂 But worth it. Only two. more. days! 🙂 Merry Christmas, Bongo!

      Katie, I hope I can wait that long. I do feel like I’m being tortured.

    I’m glad you got a cookie Bongo! I like the photo of you looking at the cookies on the counter. Are you a counter surfer, Bongo?

    • Bongo

      December 23, 2011 at 2:06 pm

      Laurie, counter surfing is one of my favorite sports – but only when no one is looking.

    Oh, what a Merry Christmas you will be having Bongo!!! Not that much longer to wait! Those cookies are loved by many dogs including the collies here. Ginger says she is hopping the train to where you live so she can have cookies…. but when I told her what she is having for Christmas is cookies also she thought she would eat hers first then come visit you! LOL…

    Enjoy your cookies Bongo!

    Merry Christmas,

    Chuck and the Collies 🙂

      December 23, 2011 at 2:09 pm

      Chuck and the Collies, I’m not sure if I have enough cookies to share with Ginger, so I’ll just get my person to make some more. Then I’ll get my person to drive to the train station in Flagstaff to pick Ginger up. It would be fun to have another dog here for Christmas. Merry Christmas!

    Just a little patience, Bongo, it will be Christmas soon. Have a great Christmas-cookie-time 🙂

      December 23, 2011 at 2:10 pm

      Angels Whisper, patience is not something I’m known for, so it’s really hard to wait. Merry Christmas!

    I love cookies. One of my favorite people baked cookies for me for Christmas. I don’t know what recipe she used, but they have peanut butter in them and they taste wonderful!

    • Bongo

      December 23, 2011 at 2:58 pm

      Lola, peanut butter cookies sound great. I’ll have to get my person to make me some of those next time – I hope I don’t have to wait until next Christmas. Merry Christmas!

    Oops, I shouldn’t have read this one out loud. Bella & Beary are now hanging out in the kitchen giving me knowing looks. Extra special Christmas belly scratches & a kiss for the top of your fuzzy head Bongo! xox

      Bella and Beary, keep giving those knowing looks. I understand your person likes to cook. Merry Christmas!

    Soon Bongo…soon it will be Christmas and cookie time. Don’t eat them all at once. Save them to enjoy over the holiday week. Madam Lasagna is very jealous. She knows she is getting “healthy” treats for a gift because of her diabetes. Maybe I can find a yummy healthy treat recipe on “the net.” Merry Christmas Bongo. We are enjoying your holiday posts.

      Nanina and Madam L, I’d eat those cookies all at once if I got the chance but my person knows me too well and she’ll keep most of them hidden from me. I hope Madam Lasagna gets something yummy and healthy for Christmas. Merry Christmas to you.

    Cookies are one of my favoritest things in the world! What a wonderful person you have, Bongo, to make you your very own batch!

    • Bongo

      December 23, 2011 at 8:29 pm

      Patricia, I’m so excited to be getting my very own cookies this year. Especially since my person will never share hers – at least not with me. Merry Christmas!

    Bongo you are a lucky dog and the wait will make those cookies taste all the better!!

    • Bongo

      December 23, 2011 at 8:31 pm

      Misty Shores, it sure is hard waiting, but my person says day after tomorrow. I guess I can hold on that long. Merry Christmas!

    I am glad you finally got a cookie just for you. The whole batch will be yours soon! : )

    • Bongo

      December 23, 2011 at 9:09 pm

      Just Ramblin’, I’m really looking forward to those cookies, but I don’t think my person will let me eat all of them on Christmas. Merry Christmas to you!

    Wow! You had a cookie!!! What a great surprise it was!!! Your person is so sweet to make cookies for you, Bongo! Enjoy the rest of the cookies on Christams!!! I wish I could join you…. 🙂
    Merry Christmas Bongo!!! 🙂

    • Bongo

      December 23, 2011 at 9:10 pm

      Kevin, I wish you could join me too, but then I’d have to talk my person into making another batch of cookies so there would be enough for both of us. Merry Christmas!

    I won’t let my dogs read this… They may realise the oven’s not only for people food and start getting ideas…

      December 23, 2011 at 11:43 pm

      Tegan, thanks for stopping by and commenting. I really think you should let your dogs read this though. Merry Christmas!

    They sound interesting. I wonder if I can get Misery to make some. She seems to spend most of her time in the kitchen anyway.

    • Bongo

      December 24, 2011 at 10:59 am

      Pippa, tell Misery they’re not too hard to make – and will really put her on Santa’s your nice list.

      Bassa, I guess it would be easier to wait for those cookies if I didn’t know they were here.
