It’s a good thing my person can’t see me right now. I’d really get in trouble.
Sometimes when my person goes into the garage I push my way past the screen door before it closes all the way. That’s where my food is kept and there are always little nuggets on the floor that were spilled. I figure I’m doing my people a favor by keeping the area clean.
If it hasn’t been very long since the last time I made my way out into the garage there usually aren’t many nuggets lying around. And I don’t feel I’ve gotten enough payment for all of my hard efforts. So I check to see what’s in the bag. After all, it is my bag of food. There shouldn’t be any problem if I just help myself.
Usually my person sees me doing it, grabs me by the collar, and makes me go back in the house.
Today I got lucky though. My food bag is almost empty so I was able to get my head all the way inside it. My person’s never going to see me now. I can have a feast. I’ll go back in the house when my bag’s empty.
What!? Wait a minute! Person, how did you know I was in here? No fair. I’m not ready to go back in the house. I’m not finished yet.
By the way person, you need to go get me another bag of food really soon.

I have the same problem Bongo…I don’t mean getting caught with my head in the bag, but all the little nibbles that drop on the floor. In our house they are soon swooped up with seven doggy noses on the go…..love ya lots Big Boy! (and you will be if you keep raiding the food)
May 17, 2012 at 7:25 pm
Patreciau, you must have an extra clean floor. Part of a dog’s job description is keeping the floor clean.
May 17, 2012 at 12:25 pm
Bongo, oops you so got busted =( Sorry….Jaz
May 17, 2012 at 7:26 pm
What do you mean Jaz? I can’t see out of the bag so how can anyone see me in here?

Oh Bongo, you’re going to get a belly ache. But I get the part about cleaning things up. Sometimes my person leaves all this food on the counter & I figure it would be a great service dog kinda thing to clean up… she just leaves cheese, pumpkin muffins, even a steak once. You can’t leave stuff around, it’ll go bad & attract rodents (whatever they are).
May 17, 2012 at 7:29 pm
Lola, the counter’s have definitely got to be cleaned. Your counter cleaning job sounds like one that any dog would be envious of.
May 17, 2012 at 2:23 pm
Oh, Bongo – so unappreciated when you try to help. Oh, the German wants to know if after this task if you have to run outside and wipe that greasy residue off your muzzle from being inside the bag? (It’s always a concern of hers) She also recommends running along a hanging bedspread if available…and no one is watching. Glad you are being such a big help!
May 17, 2012 at 7:31 pm
German, I’m not really concerned about whether my muzzle is greasy, but I do like rubbing against my person’s comforter on her bed. It just feels good to do it.
May 17, 2012 at 4:32 pm
My person always puts my food in a sealed container so I can’t get to it. No fair!
May 17, 2012 at 7:31 pm
Lola, I bet you could chew a hole in it. That’s what I’d do if I got alone with it long enough.
May 17, 2012 at 5:15 pm
LOL! Love it Bongo!!!For years our collies neer went to the dog food bag…. then Mick one day walked up and opened it up and stuck his head in and relished his self made treat. Of course every collie eye in the house was on him and they all had to try it… they usually only do it when they didnt eat much of their breakfast or dinner….otherwise they want treats… 🙂 Ginger says you should lock the door behind you so if your person sees you you will hear them coming and you can load up on food faster till they get to you… heheehhe 🙂
May 17, 2012 at 7:34 pm
Collies, Ginger has such great ideas. When my people first got me they left the food in the kitchen with me and I was so happy to be there instead of dog jail that I didn’t touch it for a long time. Then one day I got bored and ate about half a bag. I didn’t feel very good afterwards and my food got moved to the garage so I have to sneak it now.
May 17, 2012 at 6:25 pm
Teehee, Bongo, you are so naughty!! The photo just says it all — you know what you’re doing when it comes to exploring in the garage! Enjoy your day; we hope you don’t get sick from all that food 🙂
May 17, 2012 at 7:38 pm
Deanna, my person made me leave before I could eat much. She says she was watching me all the time but I don’t believe her.
May 17, 2012 at 7:24 pm
Wonderbutt’s food is also in a sealed container, like Lola’s. Perhaps that is why he tries to eat everything else.
May 17, 2012 at 7:39 pm
You mean Wonderbutt doesn’t eat the sealed container?
May 17, 2012 at 7:40 pm
You know, that never seemed odd to me until now!

Bongo good work getting into the bag! Your person better hurry! Breakfast is soon! If they forget we’ll fed ex some kibble your way.

Bella and DiDi, that would be so nice of you to send some extra kibble. I’m always afraid my person won’t feed me enough.
Paws To Talk
May 17, 2012 at 8:10 pm
We’ll send some off in the AM. We hope you’re person has enough for you until then.
May 17, 2012 at 8:13 pm
Thanks Bella and DiDi, my person says she has enough to last until then – but we disagree on how much is enough.

No problem! What are blog friends for?
May 17, 2012 at 10:05 pm
Bongo, I hope your person gets you another bag very soon. Running out of kibble is never fun.
May 17, 2012 at 10:27 pm
Monica, I’m sending my person to the store tomorrow. If I jump enough right next to her she can’t ignore me and she’ll go.
May 19, 2012 at 7:09 am
Bongo, do you know that I tagged you in my latest post? http://monicastangledweb.com/2012/05/18/thoughtsy-tagged-me/
May 19, 2012 at 1:42 pm
Thanks Monica – and Henry too. I’m honored that you thought that much of me.
May 18, 2012 at 12:49 am
I wonder how she found out?!!! I hope you’ve already got a new bag. Just make sure you close it, next time!
May 18, 2012 at 11:58 am
Marina, I’m not sure how my person knew about it – and she still hasn’t gotten me a new bag. She left me home alone all day yesterday, but she promised she’ll get me a new bag today – I think because Scratchy’s bag is emptier than mine.
May 18, 2012 at 1:01 am
Too bad your person saw you through the bag, Bongo, but on the other hand now you know she can look through everything, so you have to be careful next time when you’re “cleaning” the garage. Btw while I was writing this, there was someone over here “taking” food out of the bag. I guess I have look-through-everything-eyes too 🙂
May 18, 2012 at 12:00 pm
Angels Whisper, it’s just not fair to us when our people can look through everything. How are we supposed to get away with mischief.
May 18, 2012 at 7:05 am
Yes Bongo, the bag contains all your food after all, so there is no problem if you eat them up!!! I wonder why your person pulled you back from the bag??? *giggles* 🙂
May 18, 2012 at 12:01 pm
Kevin, sometimes I think my person just does things to frustrate me. It’s not fair.
May 18, 2012 at 9:57 am
Hey, sweet Bongo!! We love the picture…good going cleaning out that food bag. Did you get more food yet, we sure hope so. Hugs and nose kisses
May 18, 2012 at 12:02 pm
Mumsy, my person promises she’s going to get me another bag of food today. I hope she leaves the door to the garage open after she gets it. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.
May 18, 2012 at 10:36 pm
It’s a paper bag Bongo did it rattle when you stuck your head in? I can always here L & M if they try to get in any bags because I here them 😦
May 19, 2012 at 1:22 pm
Lexie and Mica, that bag must have rattled. Otherwise I can’t figure out how my person knew I was in there.
May 20, 2012 at 5:45 am
Hahahahaha! Be carefuil Bongo, if you eat too much you might become Bigo 🙂
May 20, 2012 at 1:50 pm
Bassa, I guess my person doesn’t like Bigo dogs because she makes me stop eating when I get into something. I think she should let me eat and then just take me for extra long walks on my trails.
May 20, 2012 at 10:31 pm
Hope you got some more good food!
May 21, 2012 at 3:33 pm
Bassetmomma, my person finally went to the pet store and got me more food. But I think she only went because Scratchy was almost out of food.
May 30, 2012 at 3:02 am
Oopsie Bongo! You got busted! 😦 i suppose your bag of nuggets have been replenished! 😀 Take care Bongo!
May 30, 2012 at 12:28 pm
Popcorn, my person finally got me a new bag of food. I was sweating it out though. I thought she was going to let my food run out.
June 3, 2012 at 6:50 pm
Life is not fair sometimes, eh Bongo? At least you get a fresh bag of food now! 🙂
June 3, 2012 at 7:00 pm
Sunshine, I’m not sure why my person doesn’t just let me help myself. It would save her a lot of work. She wouldn’t have to feed me.
June 3, 2012 at 9:48 pm
Bongo, you should work on your persons more…maybe hire a person personal coach. Oh, and tell her to buy you one of those Large automatic dog feeder that holds mega size amounts of dog food. It’s the best invention ever!
June 3, 2012 at 10:10 pm
Sunshine, those are great ideas. I’ve been having so much trouble training my person – maybe a person personal coach could do it. And I love that dog feeder thingy – all the dog food I can eat.
