Unmarked Territory

16 Feb

Bongo Sniffing BranchesRemember the other day when those guys were cutting down the branches? I wanted the chance to mark fresh, untouched branches but when we got there the guys weren’t working at all. They were taking a break.

Well, a couple days later my person and I were walking in that area again, and guess what? We found the branches. And there were logs, too. I thought for sure those guys would take all the branches away with them, but they didn’t. They saved them for me.

I could tell they were the same branches because I could smell the fresh cut wood fragrance. Even my person could smell it, and she doesn’t seem to be able to smell many things.

I checked for other dog’s marks and I didn’t smell any.

Yippee! Here goes! Unmarked territory all for me.

Please avert your eyes from the following picture. It’s kind of personal.

    Wow, Bongo, are you sure you want to publish such a personal picture again? This is really very personal! 🙂

      Sweet Kitten, my person made me do it.

    Aren’t you glad you went back?! Fresh unmarked [well, not anymore] logs! Well done, Bongo!

      Marina, those logs are all mine now.

      Bassetmomma, I was pretty impressed with myself. Now that I’ve marked it though, it’s okay if you send Freddie over to share.

      Cee, as long as I can keep my balance on three legs my attitude is good. Thanks.

      Dogdaz, I’m doing my best.

    I didn’t mind seeing your “personal” picture. Leaving p-mail is a totally reasonable activity. How else is a dog to know who’s been where?

    • Bongo

      February 16, 2012 at 4:20 pm

      Lola, It’s sure good to have a friend who understands.

      Cupcake, that’s why I had to warn everybody.

    Trevor always loved to water cut down trees, branches and dead trees on our walks…. those are all yours now! 🙂

    God Bless you!

    The Collies and Chuck 🙂

      Collies and Chuck, I’ll have to make sure to add a mark for Trevor.

    Oh Dog! Fresh pee-mail!!!!!

    • Bongo

      Rumpy, everyone who stops by will know I was there first. My postmark is on it.

    When you go back I bet there will be lots of responses to your p-mail.

    • Bongo

      February 16, 2012 at 7:48 pm

      Patricia, I’m sure it will be all my fans stopping by to say hi.

    Fresh spot – WINNER! Just a good as “you’re it, I quit!”

    • Bongo

      February 16, 2012 at 7:50 pm

      Karen, good idea. If I quit no one can possibly beat me.

    LOL Bongo, glad you had a fun time and finally got some fresh unspoiled trees! Yippee 🙂

      Deanna, it was great. I wish Harley, Scarlett, and Chelsea could come over and check out my marks.

    You may think your picture is a bit too revealing, Bongo, but I argue that what it reveals is your true nature: you are a dog’s dog! And aside from the picture of your lovely snout, this may be the one I like best. You are just as charming from behind as you are from the front 😉

    • Bongo

      February 16, 2012 at 9:17 pm

      Thanks Mom. I guess I am just being myself.

    Congratulations Bongo! Not only did you mark it…but all the dogs reading this blog have seen it too.

    • Bongo

      February 16, 2012 at 10:50 pm

      Jennifer, I hadn’t thought of that. Woo woo! I marked it in the blogosphere too.

    Okay Bongo, how did you learn that lifting leg thingy?? My doggy needs to learn how to do that marking thingy. He’s all grown up and still does things like a female. You got any 101 How to Lift tips???? 🙂

    • Bongo

      February 16, 2012 at 10:51 pm

      Sunshine, I guess it’s all a matter of exercise and balance. Lifting up the leg – one and two and one and two.

      • Sunshine

        February 16, 2012 at 11:33 pm

        Hmmn. Maybe my male dog is really a female dog in the mind?
        See ya tomorrow!

    Seeing your photograph, ahem, makes me want to go out for a walk this very second, if you know what I mean.

    • Bongo

      February 17, 2012 at 12:33 am

      Henry, I can totally relate.

    Bongo, that looks like a Monday Mischief post to me! 😉

    • Bongo

      February 17, 2012 at 12:36 am

      Lindy, I think you’re right. I’m getting my days confused. Either that or I have so much mischief that I have to post it on Mondays and other days too.

    LOL, Bongo, this is so you 😀 Congratulations on your first pee-mark 😀

      February 17, 2012 at 1:19 pm

      Angelswhisper, I love having friends who know me well. You seem to know what I’m all about.

    Bongo, that picture should have an R rating. Puppies could have seen that picture! 🙂

    • Bongo

      February 17, 2012 at 1:19 pm

      Bassa, I hope the puppy parents will see my warning and not let them look.

    Bassas you are so funny but you are right, puppies could have seen it and then they would be jealous, such a well endowed young man!

    • Bongo

      February 17, 2012 at 1:20 pm

      Patreciau, those puppies will know what they have to look forward to.

    Wooohoooo!!! Finally you found some unmarked branches and did the first pee on them! Great Bongo! Heeheehee..I’ve got almost the same pic like yours but mine is very confidential! BOL! 🙂

    • Bongo

      February 17, 2012 at 1:21 pm

      Kevin, I really think you should share. We would be in this together then.

    February 17, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    See, we all knew you’d get your wish eventually, Bongo! But you’re not at all demure about it like Madam L!!! Oh well, it’s more like work for the boys than for the girls. 🙂

    • Bongo

      February 17, 2012 at 1:33 pm

      Nanina, I’ll have to take Madam Lasagna out on a walk with me and show her how it’s done. What, person? That won’t work? Oh well. Madam L can come on a walk with me anyway.

    February 17, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    interesting… didn’t know you had to do that often. 😉

    • Bongo

      February 17, 2012 at 8:19 pm

      eof737, as often as possible is best.

    It was very nice of them to save those branches just for you!

    • Bongo

      February 18, 2012 at 10:12 am

      Brown Dawgs, that was really nice of them to save those branches. They must have been thinking of me.

    That’s a little more difficult for a girl, but it can be done!!

    • Bongo

      February 20, 2012 at 10:45 am

      Lexie and Mica, even if you don’t lift your leg you can leave a mark.

    Oh the joys of leaving your mark in this world! That’s why I Write.

    • Bongo

      February 21, 2012 at 12:16 pm

      Sandra, you leave marks too? I could save a special branch just for you.
