One Potato, Two Potato

14 May

Bongo sniffing a sack of potatoesI always mess up my mischief posts and get them on the wrong days, so this time I’m going to make sure I get my mischief on Monday.

It’s really not my fault though. It’s all my person’s fault. She knows I can’t help myself when she leaves food within my reach. And most places in the kitchen are in my reach.

Everybody left the house except me and Scratchy. And there was a big sack of potatoes on the table. I knew those potatoes didn’t belong there. No food should be left on the table when nobody’s eating. So I thought I’d do my people a favor and get those potatoes off the table.

While those potatoes were off the table I thought maybe I should check them out and see if they were alright. I didn’t take any out of the bag. Really. You don’t see anything here, do you?

I didn’t think I was going to get in trouble for moving those potatoes. After all, I was doing my people a favor. Taking them off a place where they weren’t supposed to be.

When my person got home she yelled at me.

But you know what? It turns out I didn’t do it at all. Scratchy knocked those potatoes off the table. I can’t believe he’d do such a thing. Somebody needs to teach that cat a lesson.

    Yes Bongo….people really shouldn’t leave potatoes where a snuffly nose may reach them. And the gaul of that cat! Cats just cause so much trouble for poor, innocent doggies! Well, anyway, lots of loves and hugs from me and the wifer. Good (?) dog! 🙂

      Awayinthemanger, Scratchy is always doing things that I get blamed for. He’s so bad.

      Winnie, cats are such a terror. I’m glad you understand.

      Popcorn, the things us dogs have to put up with when we’re trying to do our people a favor.

    Scratchy! Ugh. He is so naughty. You are so well-behaved, Bongo. I hope your people start to realize that and appreciate you.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, I’m so picked on around here. My people think Scratchy is perfect and I always get the blame. I’m so glad you understand.

    Bongo you are so kind to help your humans. We see no evidence of you moving those potatoes. Scratchy is a bold feline. Maybe she needs professional help?

      Bella and DiDi, we may have to lock Scratchy up in the cat psychology ward. That place with the little cat cages.

    Hi Bongo!

    I bet it was all Scrathy’s doing! Were the potatoes a little crunchy? I’m glad you’re doing your best to help your people.

    Take care,

      Colby, those potatoes were very crunchy – I mean, Scratchy said they were crunchy.

    If you didn’t eat the potatoes, Bongo, then I don’t see the problem. On the table, on the floor – makes no difference to me!

    • Bongo

      May 14, 2012 at 7:33 pm

      Wonderbutt’s person, that’s what I say too. There’s lots of extra room on the floor. We should be keeping some stuff there.

      You know it Ginger. I know you collies are all as innocent as I am.

    Hi there Bongo!!

    You have to watch out for those darn cats….they are crafty witches. LOLOL But your owners should have not yelled at you cuz you were trying to help out. See those cats manipulate the owners. You be safe and keep an eye on those cats, our friend.

      Weinerful Gang, I try to keep my eye on Scratchy but sometimes he’s tricky. He makes my person think he’s purrfect. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Hi there Bongo!!

    Looks like you got caught up in that crazy cats plot to get you in trouble. Be aware of those crazy felines. They are crafty. You be safe our friend.

    oooooh.. I don’t believe you..Come on own up, tell the truth. It wasn;t Scratchy at all. But I will say that you were a good boy for not opening the bag

    • Bongo

      May 14, 2012 at 11:58 pm

      Patriciau, I didn’t do it – I swear. Scratchy can push a bag as big as he is off the table. He’s a tough cat.

      • misswhiplash

        May 15, 2012 at 5:00 am

        okay I believe you,,,,I am sure that you would not tell me ‘porkies’….well then Scratchy is a naughty cat for three reasons.
        1 He was on the table
        2 He should leave things alone
        3.He might have got you into trouble

      • Bongo

        May 15, 2012 at 1:36 pm

        Patreciau, Scratchy is always getting me in trouble. He likes doing it.

      • misswhiplash

        May 15, 2012 at 11:17 pm

        Cats are wily creatures you know. Very loving to their humans but devious and cunning to fellow animals

      • Bongo

        May 16, 2012 at 12:28 am

        Patreciau, Scratchy isn’t loving at all – just devious and cunning.

    It’s all the potatoes fault! After all that was not their place, was it?! No need to blame Scratchy, really. You did a goo deed, Bongo. Where’s justice these days!!!

    • Bongo

      May 15, 2012 at 12:00 am

      Marina, those potatoes really should be in trouble, shouldn’t they? They deserved to be dropped like that.

      • marina kanavaki

        May 15, 2012 at 2:15 am

        …what can I say?! They had it coming!

  15. angelswhisper2011

    May 15, 2012 at 12:58 am

    I hope you didn’t eat a patato, Bongo, they’re poisened when they’re raw you know. I also think it’s the patatoes fault, they hadn’t been left on the table, it’s asking for trouble 😀

    • Bongo

      May 15, 2012 at 1:32 pm

      Angels Whisper, maybe that’s why I had a problem. But I’m all better now. If Scratchy hadn’t knocked those potatoes down I wouldn’t have eaten one.

    Those pesky, clumsy cats!

    • Bongo

      May 15, 2012 at 1:34 pm

      Flo, life would be so much better without those cats always causing trouble. But sometimes it’s good to have them around so you have someone to blame.

    Good for you Bongo! you let that person know who you are and why you do those silly things you do!…..Peace Jaz PS if she boots you out I and Rosie will take you….=)

    • Bongo

      May 15, 2012 at 1:41 pm

      Jaz, it’s nice to know I have a place to go if I need one. My person puts up with a lot of things that Scratchy does that I get blamed for – but she hasn’t kicked either of us out yet.

      • jazfagan

        May 15, 2012 at 2:01 pm

        LOL Bongo….I would take you in a heartbeat. Jaz PS and scratchy too

    Bongo…did you taste the potatoes to know if they were okay? Was it delicious without cooking? I can see the label of the sac says “Idaho” where it is very famous place for potatoes, isn’t it? *drools* In US, Idaho potatoes are the most delicious?

    • Bongo

      May 15, 2012 at 1:43 pm

      Kevin, I think potatoes are Idaho’s only claim to fame – well almost. My person says the northern part of the state is very beautiful. Those potatoes were good, but the cooked ones are better.

    I do exactly the same Bongo! I always manage to grab one or two. There is something irresistible abot them 🙂

    • Bongo

      May 15, 2012 at 1:48 pm

      Bassa, you’ve got a cat to blame now too. Barnaby did it. Except I think you and Barnaby get along better than Scratchy and I do.

    Bongo potatoes are nasty why would you knock them off the cabinet. It’s not like it was a steak!! Of course Scratchy did it??!

    • Bongo

      May 15, 2012 at 9:56 pm

      Lexie and Mica, you’d think my person would figure that out. I might go after the steak, but what would I want with potatoes?

  21. Bassetmomma

    May 20, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    Sure, you can blame it on Scatchy but I can see the potato by you in the picture! LOL!

    • Bongo

      May 21, 2012 at 3:29 pm

      Bassetmomma, please don’t tell – I mean, Scratchy rolled that potato under me.

      Sunshine, it wasn’t me – really. Scratchy is so full of mischief.

        hehe…hmmn, right, sure…I think Bongo, you should be a comedian dog. 🙂
