10 Jan

Bongo and TimmyMy person says that the other day someone found my blog by doing an image search for “bongo dog.” My person thought that it made sense to find my blog through that search, but she was curious what she would find so she checked it out.

She found several pictures of me and lots of other dogs too. Most of them probably had one of the best names I can think of – Bongo.

But then my person saw something really strange. It was a picture that looked like Chelsea, a dog friend of ours. When my person moused –(Aren’t those mouses the little creatures the coyotes eat?) – over the picture, sure enough, it was Chelsea. Chelsea can be found at She is a very special pup who was rescued and taken in as a foster dog by her person. Her person fell in love with her and decided to keep her, but Chelsea had injuries before she came to her forever home, that are requiring expensive surgery. You can learn more about Chelsea and how you can help her here.

Recently my person did the same search and couldn’t find Chelsea anywhere. She still found lots of pictures of me – and guess who else:

She found Alfie, the Collies, Uptown Dog, Lola, Henry, and a photo of a Spotted Dog taken by our dog photographer friend Laurie.

How cool is that? I went searching for myself and found my friends.

    • Bongo

      January 10, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    In the general sense, a part of us remain with people (or dogs, in your case) we’ve met and people (or dogs) we call friends. So it’s also true when you say, “I went searching for myself and found my friends.” Beautifully said, Bongo. 🙂

    Now try and stay humble Bongo! Just curious, do you do autographs? Also, I’m going to say a prayer for Chelsea. Sorry to hear the news. Fortunately, she has a good friend in you. 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 10, 2012 at 8:45 pm

      Wordswithpurpose, thanks for your prayer for Chelsea. By the way, I do pawtographs. I do them best on rainy days after I’ve been outside.

    Wow Bongo! You are famous doggy because your name is found on web. Once I’ve checked my name on web if there is something mentioned but nothing was found and I was soooo disappointed…. BOL! 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 11, 2012 at 10:14 am

      Kevin, you are famous in my book.

    January 11, 2012 at 8:20 am

    Hmmph. I took it upon myself to Google Fabulous Flo… apparently it’s NOT an original name… can you believe it… after I’d got past some bint’s Myspace page there were several about a Marvel character. My Flo was FIFTH on the list. FIFTH. Reeeediculous. Clearly we have a way to go before we hit the big time like you!


    • Bongo

      January 11, 2012 at 10:16 am

      Flo, I don’t always come up first either. I found out there’s a band called Bongo Dogs. I bet they named themselves after me.

    I am very pleased that you “found yourself” Bongo. Some people spend years trying to achieve that 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 11, 2012 at 12:26 pm

      Bassa, maybe all those people who are still looking for themselves should check the internet.

    Hey Bongo! Thanks for the awesome post and all the support and prayers 🙂 We decided you were famous long ago but when you shared this about Chelsea, we had no idea she’d become such a sensation, too! We’re honored to be in such great company.

    Thank you to everyone for the wonderful support, prayers, encouragement and donations. I am so happy to announce the funds have been raised to cover Chelsea’s surgery and after-care!!!!!!!!! Please continue to pray for her! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

      January 11, 2012 at 7:23 pm

      Deanna, that is so awesome that all of the funds have been raised for Chelsea’s surgery. Glad we could be a small part of helping out. We were just over and read your post. We’ll be sending up special prayers during the surgery.

    Oh Dog! I bet if I googled me I’d probably find June Buggie!

    • Bongo

      January 11, 2012 at 7:42 pm

      Rumpy, I had to do it. I checked to see if June Buggie was there. And you know who I found? – besides you of course. I found Kevin. I was so excited because I didn’t know what Kevin looked like. Now I do.
