Tagged, Tagged, and Tagged Again

08 Mar

Bongo's HeadI don’t think I’m very good at this tagging game. I keep getting tagged – all the time. A bunch of my dog blogging friends tagged me, and at the same time I was putting up a post answering those questions my friends at Bringing up Bella were tagging me again. Bella is a rescue dog from Puerto Rico who was sent to the States to find her forever home.

I’ve also been tagged by two people blogging friends and they gave me two entirely different sets of questions. They really made me think and my brain is all fuzzy now from answering all these questions. My person says sometimes people have to take tests in school and sometimes they’re really hard. I think this was like one of those hard tests. I hope I got an A.

The first person blogging friend to tag me was Buddhakat. Buddhakat’s blog has all kinds of interesting things on it, but my favorites are the Friday Fractals. These are unique pieces of computer generated art. Each one is different and they’re all beautiful. And I think they get better every week.

So here’s the questions:

1)      If you could live in any OTHER time, when would it be and why?

Time? What’s that? I’m happy where I am.

2)      What about yourself are you most proud of?

I’m proud that I’ve been able to make so many friends through my blog.

3)      Who is your absolute favorite musical artist/group? Movie?

I don’t know about music, but I found out there’s a band called The Bongodogs. That’s my favorite name for a band. Movie? That would have to be Marley and Me. Marley is my mentor.

4)   What subject was your favorite in all of your schooling? Why?

My favorite subject would have to be PE, ‘cause my person takes me on lots of hikes.

5)      The most important thing I want to teach my children is____________.

Someone took care of that so I can’t have any children, but if I had any I would have to teach them how to be mischievous like me.

6)      What three things would you grab if your house were aburning and you knew for sure your family and animals were all safe?

My Frisbee, my squeaky toys, and my dog treats.

7)   Do you have nightmares? Care to share?

I sleep really well, but I worry if I think my person is going to leave me.

8)   Coke or Pepsi?


9)   Do you believe in the paranormal? Do you have any experiences you’d like to tell us about? Please?

I believe in Ghost Dog.

10)   My favorite season is _______________ because__________.

My favorite season is fall, because it has the best weather for going on walks.

11)   What one 6 word phrase or sentence best describes you?

I’m most happy on my trails.

The second person blogging friend to tag me is Windupmyskirt. I’m not sure how to describe her blog, except that it’s a lot different than mine.

So here’s my second test. This is hard.

1.      Why did you start your blog?

My person decided it was better to laugh at my antics than to get upset, so she started putting funny things on Facebook about me. I really didn’t like her making fun of me but so many of her friends liked it that she decided I could have my own blog.

2.     Who is your favourite actor/actress?

That would be Jonah, the dog who plays Marley in Marley and Me.

3.     Name your favourite band/musician?

I’m not into music, but the name I like best for a band is The Bongodogs.

4.     What is your favourite TV Show?

My person won’t let me watch TV.

5.     Who is your favourite scientist?

It must be Pavlov because he gave his dog treats.

6.     Name your favourite author?

John Grogan. He wrote Marley and Me.

7.     What do you do with your free time when you are not online?

Go on walks on my trails and catch Frisbees. Oh yeah, and eat.

8.    If you had to live in another country, which country would you choose and why?

I love where I live because my trails are here, but I would like to visit all of my blogging friends who live in other countries.

9.     What three words best describe you?

Fun, energetic, mischievous

10.   What is your biggest guilty pleasure?

Getting into mischief when no one’s around to see what I’m doing. But I don’t feel guilty about it unless I get caught.

11.  If you were throwing a dinner party, and could invite any 10 people (living or dead) who would you invite?

Can I invite 10 dogs? I don’t think the people would like what I’m serving.

    So, you wouldn’t invite me to your dinner party?

    • Bongo

      March 8, 2012 at 11:22 am

      Sweet Kitten, I would make an exception for you. I guess my person would have to be there so there would be some people food too.

        Thank you! You are both so sweet!

    Great Q & A! Love that there is a band called the Bongodogs!

    • Bongo

      March 8, 2012 at 11:17 am

      Bassetmomma, my person even found some of the Bongodogs music online. It’s Latin Jazz. I think I could jazz it up with them.

    Do you have any recordings of the Bongodogs? I’d love to here them!
    A+[Hons] for Bongo!

    • Bongo

      March 8, 2012 at 11:20 am

      Marina, thanks for the A+. Here’s a link my person found to a YouTube video of Bongodogs. It takes a few seconds for the sound to kick in.

      • marina kanavaki

        March 9, 2012 at 2:03 am

        They’re actually good! Since the name is taken now you have to change your band’s name to “the Bongos”, and I really can’t wait to hear work from that band. All you need is a basist, a keyboard player, a guitarist and a drummer. Well, the star singer is obviously …YOU!

      • Bongo

        March 9, 2012 at 10:44 am

        Marina, I bet I’d be a good singer – woo woo. I could play bongo drums too.

        stupid me, why didn’t I think of that?!!!!

    OMG I LOVE your answer for favourite scientist. Pavlov was such a brilliant choice for a dog!! As usual you and your person have written a very creative and entertaining blog. Thank you so much for answering my questions.

      Thanks Windupmyskirt. It was fun answering your questions.

    I agree that John Grogan’s Marley & Me was a great book but you should also check out Spencer Quinn who has I think 4 Chet & Bernie books out now. Bernie is a private investigator but of course Chet helps out a lot and the books are all in Chet’s “voice”. Really fun reads & Chet is a hoot! Kinda like you Bongo.

    • Bongo

      March 8, 2012 at 3:25 pm

      Thanks for the recommendation Diane. I wasn’t familiar with these books but I had my person put one of them on her wishlist for the next time she’s ordering books.

      • dianeskitchentable

        March 8, 2012 at 3:34 pm

        Hey Bongo, I think your person will love these but make sure you read them too since you’re an adventurous kind of guy you might get some good tips on being a PI. Chet was doing really well in this police training program right up until that last day when a cat walked by & there was some jumping involved and a whole lot of yelling going on… maybe some blood, but Chet has selective memory on a lot of things & can’t remember all of it. But as he says “that’s a story for another day”. Lola had to go the the vet for a check-up today and it went pretty well for about 5 minutes… why do vets put cookies in ceramic jars anyway? Doesn’t that seem like a pretty silly thing to put cookies in?

      • Bongo

        March 8, 2012 at 4:23 pm

        Diane, did Lola break the jar? Oh no! I hope she got all the treats.

      • dianeskitchentable

        March 8, 2012 at 4:30 pm

        Alas, somehow the cookie jar did get broken but grumpy old Mom wouldn’t let me grab any treats because there was all this broken ceramic in with the cookies! You know my vet has a couple house cats & I’m wondering if maybe that big guy Earl might have helped push it off the edge of the counter. Did I mention that cats cause trouble? And then they punished me by sticking needles in me! But then I got lots of cookies after cause they said I was a good girl, although the vet did maybe mention something about me having a cookie butt… hey I’m a plus size girl is all. Love ya Bongo – Lola

      • Bongo

        March 8, 2012 at 6:09 pm

        Lola, it was the cats for sure. Anything that happens around here – Scratchy did it. I just can’t figure out why me person doesn’t believe me. He’s tricky, that Scratchy.

    You worked wicked hard on all these many, many questions, Bongo! You sure do like Marley and Me!

    Love and licks,

      March 8, 2012 at 4:25 pm

      Cupcake, my person says she read Marley and Me shortly after she got me and decided maybe I wasn’t so bad after all. I decided that just wasn’t good enough and after awhile she told me I was just like Marley.

    Wonderbutt says that he is going to be waiting by the mailbox for his dinner invitation. Or a delicious mail person. Whichever comes first.

    • Bongo

      March 8, 2012 at 6:10 pm

      Wonderbutt is invited to my dinner party for sure. He’s my hero.

    Hi Bongo again! I tried to leave a comment in your post about your friend Pablo but I can never get a reply box to show. Anyway, it opens here so I just wanted to say it was nice (even if you didn’t want to) you gave hospitality to your friend Pablo. I bet he felt real special when he got to seat up front. I’m sure if you visit him sometime, he would let you sit like a king up front. You’re still King in my books 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 8, 2012 at 8:19 pm

      Thanks Sunshine. I guess it was nice of me to let Pablo ride in my person’s car. We did have a good time together.

    I think you can use a break/treat now, Bongo, after so much brain work. I took a look at the BongoDogs, but I think you better start your own band, Bongo 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 9, 2012 at 10:42 am

      Angels Whisper, maybe I could be a vocalist in their band – woo woo woo.

    What? You don’t watch TV? I don’t much either, but I do like that Nature show. And if there’s a dinner party, count me in!

    • Bongo

      March 9, 2012 at 10:44 am

      Rumpy, you are definitely on my guest list for the dinner party.

    Bongo, please come and visit Japan!!! Hmmm…I haven’t seen ‘Marley and Me’ yet but it sounds very fun film!(a little bit sad?) I have to watch it! These answers are very interesting and give a good oppotunity to know you more Bongo!!! 🙂

    • Bongo

      March 9, 2012 at 10:50 am

      Kevin, I would love to come visit you in Japan. Marley and Me is a very fun film but sad at the end. Definitely worth seeing. My person says the book is even better, and not so intensely sad at the end.

    Awesome sauce, Bongo… I’d say you got 2 A+’s here… very well done. And what a delight to get to know you better. And the story of Ghost Dog is most interesting!!!
    and I’m blushing at all the nice things you said about my blog and fractals… you’re a pal!!!

    eof737, my person says she doesn’t like answering stuff about herself – that’s why she makes me do it.
