Ball No More

03 Jan

Bongo and his chewed up ballLast night I was in a chewing mood, and I started chewing on one of my new balls. There’s something about those balls – I just love the smell of them. I was chewing away, having a good time when my person looked over at what I was doing. She noticed that about half my ball was missing. Gone! Vamoose!

Yeah? So? I’m having fun chewing it up person.

You know what she did? You know what my person did!? She took that ball away from me and she threw it in the garbage. In the garbage, mind you. That was a perfectly good half ball and I still had a lot of chewing to do.

I’ll fix her. My person’s not going to stop me that easily. I found the bag with the rest of the balls in it. They’re my balls after all. It wasn’t easy, but I got one out of there.

And I chewed that one up too.

      Thanks for commenting Marinakanavaki. My person hid the other balls. I don’t know when she’s going to let me chew them up.

        …you know what to do, don’t you? Just give them that look!

        Marinakanavaki, the look doesn’t work with my people. They know me too well.

    Laddie is horrified!!!! Half a ball? Oh my!!! LOL… lucky for your person you will play with a new ball. Lad will not give up his old ball no matter what…. it gets ugly if I try to give him a new ball… LOL

    God Bless You!

      Chuck and the Collies, I usually have several balls hanging out in various places. When I’m not chewing them up I’m giving them to my person so she’ll toss them for me.

    I chew up all of my toys. That’s what they’re for, right?

    • Bongo

      Lola, the best thing to do with toys is chew them up. And it’s our people’s job to get us more.

    OMG, Bongo! Be careful! If you eat too many balls or other naughty things, your person may have to “induce vomiting”! Trust me, I’ve been there and it is gnarly!

    Love & licks,

    • Bongo

      Cupcake, that sounds ugly. I guess I’m lucky my person takes stuff away from me before I can eat too much of it.

      Winsomebella, chew toys are the best.

    Nice job Bongo! You would have a great time over here, all the pups are always destroying…I mean “chewing” their toys up real good!

      Nanina, I don’t chew all my toys, but sometimes it’s just fun.

    You tell ’em Bongo! Why should you be denied what is yours? You have rights too!

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2012 at 6:26 pm

      Rumpy, I think I’ll occupy the kitchen now – to stand up for my rights!

      Brown Dawgs, I’m glad you’ve got it figured out. Now we just have to convince our people.

    Bongo you and Riva would get along so well, she has already destuffed and chewed up at least half of the Christmas presents, even the ones that aren’t hers, nothing is sacred where she is concerned 😉
    But be careful about ingesting to much of that non-food stuff, it can turn on you!

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2012 at 8:41 pm

      Misty Shores, I think I like Riva a lot. My person keeps telling me about eating that non-food stuff too. That’s why she throws it in the garbage. Darn!

    You would fit in well at our house, Bongo. Wonderbutt chews balls, too. But only the ones he can reach after Mrs. P.I.B. bats them all under the furniture.

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2012 at 8:43 pm

      Wonderbutt is my hero. When I lose balls under the furniture I usually have to depend on my person to get them out. Sometime they stay there for a long time.

      Angelswhisper, I am pretty determined when I want something.

    you chewed half a ball?…wow…i’ve never seen anyone do that around here…so thanks…i will definitely try it on my new ball but not in front of the humans…hehheh- Vanilla Bean

    • Bongo

      January 4, 2012 at 10:17 am

      Vanilla Bean, definitely don’t chew your ball up in front of your people. They’ll take it away from you.

    BOL! Good job Bongo! I love chewing balls, too and I believe that it’s our duty to chew the balls until they are destoried!!! 🙂 but my mom is also worried if I might eat soem of them….you have to be careful, too Bongo! 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 4, 2012 at 10:18 am

      Kevin, I guess that’s what our people are good for. Worrying about us when we have too much fun.

    Chewing things is one thing, Bongo. I hope you won’t eat them and become ill.

    • Bongo

      January 4, 2012 at 10:19 am

      Sweet Kitten, I never think about that sick thing until it’s too late. I guess it’s good that my person does.

      Thanks Jennifer. I can be a pretty creative dog.

    Well, sweet Bongo we would say you won that round. 🙂 Hugs and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      January 4, 2012 at 10:21 am

      Chancy and Mumsy, yup, I did – until my person threw the second ball in the garbage too. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    Freddie says “Good for you Bongo!” “My Momma keeps throwing out my balls too!” Oh, dear…..did that sound right! LOL!

    • Bongo

      January 4, 2012 at 10:25 am

      Freddie, we may need to start a dog union for protecting our balls – the chewing kind.

    Never underestimate the determination of a dog denied his rightful toys. Bongo, you person should be happy…you didn’t go after someone else’s toy! Good luck with Occupy Kitchen.

    • Bongo

      January 4, 2012 at 10:27 am

      Karen, I had to give up on Occupy Kitchen. There’s no soft carpet to lie down on. I changed it to Occupy Living Room.

      DogDaz, come on over. I’d love to have some help with that garbage pail.

    Sometimes you’ve just got to chew… I’m glad you knew where to find the other balls! 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 5, 2012 at 8:02 pm

      Flo, my person put the rest out of my reach. I don’t know when I’m going to get to eat chew on them.
