What is This Thing?

03 Mar

Bongo checking out the strange thingHey person, what is this thing?

It’s a what? A not supposed to be on the floor thing? What’s that?

It’s a I finally found another one so don’t wreck it thing?

What’s that supposed to mean? I just found it here on the floor. Oh, I get it. You don’t want me to wreck it. Why would I do that?

I chewed up the last one? How could I have done that? I’ve never seen one of these before.

The last one looked different? Then how could I have chewed one of these up if it wasn’t the same.

Person, you’re depriving me of some good chewing memories. I don’t remember chewing anything like this before.

The last one didn’t look the same but it was used for the same thing? What was it used for?

Separating eggs? Why would you ever want to do that? You just eat the egg all at once. Then you don’t need one of these strange looking things. I’ve got one more question for you, person.

Since you don’t really need this thing because it’s better to eat the egg all at once, can I chew it up now?

    Lol too funny! Sorry you don’t get to destroy another egg separator– what a bummer 🙂 When we drop things on the floor, our pups tend to also take it as a cue to chew and destroy!

    Enjoy your Saturday, Bongo!

      Deanna, my person is telling me that I stole the last one off the counter. I don’t remember it at all. I wish I did.

    Ha! “Not to be on the floor thing”. I love that line. We have lots of those, here, Bongo, that I am forever picking up.

      Leslie, I wish my person would leave more things on the floor, but she picks them up too.

    Bongo, don’t you know by now – never ask for clarification just go ahead and chew! 🙂

      Bassa, I would have chewed that thing, but my person was right there with the camera. She would have put it all over the internet.

    Maybe your person could get you one just like it to chew up.
    But I always thought that once an item hits the floor, it fair game for anybody.

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2012 at 12:21 pm

      Allexander, I agree with you about once an item hits the floor, but somehow I haven’t been able to convince my person of this.

    you are such a tinker Bongo! Did you really chew the last one? well be a good boy and leave this one alone…

    You have your own toys to play with , these are person’s toys

    love you xxx

      Patreciau, mostly I’m good about playing with my own toys, but sometimes if there’s a little food residue left on something, I’ve just got to sink my teeth into it. I can’t help myself.

      Hawk, I agree with you on that human thing. Thanks for stopping by. I’ll stop by to catch up with you in awhile.

      Laurie, I had to check it out because otherwise Scratchy probably would have knocked it under a piece of furniture.

    Bongo, could you ask my dogs what happened to my lemon juicer? 😉

      Teresa, your dogs like chewing kitchen stuff too?

  10. Teresa Silverthorn

    Not anymore, but that juicer disappeared when my youngest was a pup.

    I’m still looking for it 🙂

    March 3, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    Jen, I think you could solve all the problems with the tools by letting us dogs chew them all up.

      Ha ha – obviously well thought out, Bongo 🙂

        Oh ! that is so cool. That reminds me I have never taken Oreo for a swim till now. I must do that soon.

        March 4, 2012 at 12:41 pm

        Ankita, I just got to go swimming for the first time a couple months ago. I’ve been twice now. I really love it. I like fetching sticks in the water.

    Once again your logic astounds us. 🙂 Given your argument, I can see no good reason NOT to chew it.

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2012 at 7:46 pm

      Flo, I’m so glad you agree with me.

    Separate eggs? I’m with you…. why separate ’em?

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2012 at 9:32 pm

      Rumpy, sometimes our people just don’t make sense.

  15. eripanwkevin

    March 3, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    I’ve seen almost the similar one in our house, Bongo. My mom once bought it as she thought it would be useful to separate eggs, but she imemdiately gave up using it because she realized using their shell is much faster! BOL! Go go Bongo! You can chew it now! Good luck! 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 3, 2012 at 10:01 pm

      Kevin, that’s a great idea. I just have to tell my person that if she insists on separating those eggs she can do it easier without the separator. Here I go. Chomp!

      Bassetmomma, you’d think she’d listen to me more often.

    lol, Bongo, at least you waited for permission before you broke the package of that “filling up the drawer thing” 🙂

      Angelswhisper, I don’t like getting in trouble – at least when my people are watching.

    Hi Bongo!
    Yes, Rutherford and Ginger agree…. if its on the floor it needs to be eliminated (nice word for destroyed). Nom, nom, nom….. Ginger wants to know if you take one egg and move it away from the other is that not separating the eggs? *Dad holds his head in his hands*

    Your friends,
    The Collies and Chuck 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 4, 2012 at 5:17 pm

      Collies and Chuck, I think Ginger is right about separating eggs, but that only needs to be done if you have to share.

    Bongo, never come between humans and their kitchen gadgets. We have found the more our humans have, the happier they are. We don’t get it. Maybe it is like having a bunch of dog toys. What do you think?

    • Bongo

      March 4, 2012 at 5:19 pm

      Brown Dawgs, I think humans are strange sometimes. Dog toys are fun to play with and they do things like squeak, or they are good for catching. Kitchen gadgets are only good for chewing up. Why would our humans get toys like that?

  23. sandrabranum

    March 4, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    Bongo you are such a clever dog. Did your logic work?

    • Bongo

      March 4, 2012 at 8:43 pm

      No Sandra. My person took the thing away and put it where I can’t get to it. I’m not sure what she wants it for. I think it would make a much better chew toy.

    …useless thing anyway! [or maybe …wait until it’s been used and casually let it drop, so that you get the egg flavor too!]

    • Bongo

      March 5, 2012 at 7:35 am

      Marina, that’s a good idea – waiting until I can get the egg flavor too. That’s what my person says I did the last time.

  25. Sunshine

    March 5, 2012 at 7:47 am

    Great find Bongo! Maybe your, oops, did your persons just drop an egg?? Oh, sorry Bongo, I was getting ready for April Fool’s Day. 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 5, 2012 at 10:07 am

      Sunshine, you just about had me going. I was already to look for that egg – then I realized it wasn’t Easter till next month.

    Hey Bongo, Jet here. I support you… JJ and I agree with the totally erroneous need for that thing called an egg separator. Eggs are too special to separate, just pop ’em in your mouth, 1,2,3!

    On the other hand, your human might need this for some odd reason… so support your human and find a toy… bet you’ll get a belly rub for it!

    • Bongo

      March 8, 2012 at 11:07 am

      Jet, my person stashed that thing somewhere that I can’t find, so I guess I’ll have to settle for one of my toys.

      • heyitsjethere

        March 8, 2012 at 4:30 pm

        Bongo, humans feel the need to make things disappear from us… best to get a toy, dude… I agree.

      • Bongo

        March 8, 2012 at 6:18 pm

        Jet, I guess that thing doesn’t squeak anyway.
