Frozen Tag, Anyone?

02 Mar

Staying in the YardHey person, there’s this game going around with my blogging friends called tagging, and I think I’m it. I’m supposed to answer some questions and then tag more blogging friends – but I think they’ve all been tagged already. I think that’s kind of like frozen tag. I’ve been tagged and I can’t move.

Person, I’m holding all these questions and I don’t know what to do with them. And now I’m getting cold because I’m frozen. I should do what? Answer the questions? I guess I could do that.

Misty Shores Chesapeakes, Bones Diary, Laurie Bartolo, and Collies of the Meadow all tagged me with these questions:

1.       Describe yourself in 7 words. 

Fun loving (oops, that’s two words), playful, escape artist (did it again) energetic, inquisitive, jumper, slobbery

2.       What keeps you up at night?

Nothing – except thunder

3.       Who would you like to be?

I’m happy being me

4.       What are you wearing right now?

My collar – and a lot of hair that will be all over the carpet soon

5.       What scares you?

Thunder – I’m deathly afraid of thunder

6.       The best and worst of blogging.

The best is all the blogging buddies I’ve made – The worst is my person is on the computer when she should be taking me for a walk or feeding me.

7.       The last website I visited.

The ones that tagged me so I could make sure I had all the info right.

8.       What is one thing I would change about myself.

I wouldn’t change a thing. I’m perfect the way I am.

9.       Slankets yes or no.

I didn’t know what a slanket was until my friend Laurie googled it and found out it’s a blanket with sleeves. I’ll just take my bed, or a cozy spot on the carpet.

10.   Tell us something about the dog that tagged you.

Cheyenne, Riva, Maia, and Titan are four amazing Chesapeake Bay Retrievers on Misty Shores Chesapeakes. They are beautiful and fun loving brown dogs and I guess I can’t fault them for living with some cats too.

Bones is a border terrier who has all kinds of fun and loves to get into mischief. He lives with his brothers Alfie and Jess and loves to give them a bad time. He recently had his first birthday and is afraid of losing his puppyness, but those of us who know him know that won’t happen anytime soon.

Laurie Bartolo loves to take photographs of dogs and she travels around her neighborhood looking for dogs willing to model for her. If you haven’t seen her photography you’ve got to check it out. It’s really great.

You’ve never seen so many romping collies as you’ll see at Collies of the Meadow. Chuck shares the lives and love of his many collies – both present and past. It’s amazing to see the different personalities they all have.

Hey person, aren’t you forgetting something? Yeah person, I got some awards too.

I want to say a big thank you to all my blogging friends who honored me with awards.

ABC Award

Sandra Branum and Laurie Bartolo awarded me the ABC Award. Sandra has a lot of fun poetry on her blog and personal stories as well. Laurie has awesome dog photography.

One Lovely Blog Award

One Lovely Blog Award was given to me by Collies of the Meadow, Dianda with Catsnco, and Tylersat99. Catsnco has everything cat. Please don’t tell anyone I read a cat blog. The truth is Scratchy steals the computer and reads it. Mica and Lexie are the two dogs at Tylersat99. They are both Newfoundlands and they have trails almost as good as mine – maybe even better because they have a swimming hole on theirs. The collies are fun loving and have totally overtaken their house, but their dad wouldn’t have it any other way.

HUG Award

Misty Shores Chesapeakes and Bumpy Road to Bubba honored me with the HUG Award. Bumpy Road to Bubba is a beautiful blog about Mumma and her Bubba who recently had her first birthday. They also share their home with Bella and Beary, two beautiful dogs. Misty Shores Chesapeakes has wonderful photos and adventures of a bunch of beautiful, brown Chesapeake Bay Retrievers.

The Liebster Blog Award was awarded to me by Manipal’s Photo Blog. This is a fairly new blog that has some really wonderful photography. Please stop by and check this blog out.

I was also tagged by two other blogging friends – not dogs – and they gave me totally different questions so I’ll post those later. This post is getting long enough.

Hey person, you’re forgetting something else. You know, my blog roll?

No person, I don’t understand busy. Hurry up and get my friend’s links on my blog. At least you finally gave me my Facebook page. That took weeks. I hope nobody holds their breath because they might turn blue, but I’ll keep after my person to put up my blogroll.

    Great answers, Bongo. I liked how you described yourself in seven words or so!

      Thanks Sandy.

    Bongo, we liked getting to know more about you. Good answers. Sorry we weren’t able to mail you any snow from our yard. Talk to you soon.

      Thanks Bella and DiDi. My person says I probably wouldn’t have been very happy with any snow that was mailed to me anyway. I’m not sure why.

    Congrats on another well deserved award Bongo. By the way, there is this special vest called “Thundershirt” No joke – really! I have already “tested” it on my dog and she feels quite happy [and safe for some reason] with it when a thunderstorm breaks! [I mean she used to crawl into the fireplace when it rained – thank God we don’t light it!] Tel your person about it…

    • Bongo

      March 2, 2012 at 11:27 am

      Thanks Marina. My person got me an Anxiety Vest, which is about the same as a Thundershirt, but she only heard about it at the end of last thunder season. We had a little thunder after I got it and it helped.

    LOL, Bongo, Bella’s person is right there with your’s. At least your’s got your tag AND awards posts written – Bella’s can’t even get that done (although our blog roll is sitting in an excel spreadsheet just waiting for publishing. 😉

    It was fun to learn more about you. And congrats on all your awards! Well-deserved.

    • Bongo

      March 2, 2012 at 11:33 am

      Thanks Leslie. My person says not to feel bad. Some of my awards and tags have been hanging around for a long time and she finally got to them. I still have two more tags with different questions to answer. And she hasn’t even begun to put together my blog roll.

      March 2, 2012 at 4:44 pm

      Thanks Collies and Chuck. Please don’t send your thunder this way though. We usually don’t get much until July and August and then it’s a miserable two months for me.

    Congrats on all of your awards. We enjoyed reading your “tagged” answers Bongo. We hope that the Thunder you are afraid of is the kind that comes from the sky and not the brown dawg kind. 🙂

    Thunder and the brown dawgs

    • Bongo

      March 2, 2012 at 8:20 pm

      Thanks Brown Dawgs. I’m only afraid of the sky kind of Thunder. I think the brown kind would be great fun to play with.

    What?!? You, Bongo, scared of thunder? Who knew? Oh, you’re still Superdog in my books! 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2012 at 12:46 am

      Thanks Sunshine. I’d like to get hold of that thunder thing and shake it between my teeth, but I can’t.

      • Sunshine

        March 3, 2012 at 12:55 am

        Well, my old dog (sigh* who is in doggy heaven) used to hate firecrackers so he would run out and try to put them out. Of course, he would come back with burnt off whiskers! So, don’t try it with lightning or you may be burnt off this planet, Bongo!

      • Bongo

        March 3, 2012 at 10:58 am

        Sunshine, that’s funny about your dog – although my person says you probably didn’t think so at the time. I don’t like lightning either when I see it flash, so I’m happy to stay away from it.

    Congratulations, Bongo, on your new awards. That’s quite a collection you’ve got there, and all deserved well:) It must feel great to be tagged by your friends, but I hope you’re defrosted now 😀 I loved your answers, they made me laugh again. Thanks, dear dog 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2012 at 10:59 am

      Thanks Angels Whisper. My person took me for a walk and defrosted me.

    Congratulations on the awards Bongo! I’ve been tagged several times and I’m in the same position as you – who to tag! I feel like a kid in an empty school yard 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2012 at 11:09 am

      Bassa, I’m glad I’m not the only one. I love your analogy – a kid in an empty school yard.

    I’m glad I jumped over here today because I got to learn some things about you! I guess escape artist and fun-loving go together, because you’ve got to escape in order to go find some more fun! Kelly says Hi!

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2012 at 11:12 am

      Kelly and Peggy, thanks for stopping by and commenting. I guess it is easier to have fun when you escape, although my people took me swimming last week and that was the most fun.

      Thanks Jazfagan. I’m not sure if you’d really want to though. My person would make you stay on a leash most of the time.

    Hi Bongo – I enjoyed reading your answers! Congratulations on all of your awards – you are a star Bongo! And thanks so much for the nice things you said about my blog and photos!

    Whew. Talk about tying up all those loose ends quickly and efficiently. Good job, Bongo – enjoyed the read….and now must be time to go out to play!

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2012 at 4:14 pm

      Karen, can I go out and play with you? Oh yeah – bring the German along too.

      • philosophermouseofthehedge

        March 3, 2012 at 4:19 pm

        The German is worn out – long walk and fierce tugs of war and lots of ball chasing…play while the sun shines. (Bark the clouds away!)

      • Bongo

        March 3, 2012 at 4:40 pm

        The German and I will have to play another time then.

    Wowzers!! Congratulations on all your awards! Great Q & A too! I’m sorry thunder scares you so much Bongo. Our late basset Barney was also terrified of thunder. 😦

    • Bongo

      March 4, 2012 at 7:31 am

      Thanks Bassetmomma. I guess everyone has something they’re scared of. For me it’s thunder.
