Competition from the Rez

20 Jul

Brown DogWait a minute! Who is that dog and why is he on my blog?

He’s a what? A church dog? I thought I was the only church dog.

Okay person, what’s up?

I don’t believe this! My person finally told me where she went earlier this week when she left me at home with my younger person. She said that she and my new friend were at a church on the Navajo Reservation, and that church already has a church dog. She told me that that church dog might not like it if I tried to take over. And you know what else? That church dog is also friends with my new friend.

I’m really not liking this at all.

Brown Dog with Bongo's New Friend

You know what my person said she saw while she was there?

She saw sheep and a sheep dog. I really want to go hang out with those sheep and that sheep dog. And she saw a little black lamb right next to the highway and she was sure glad it didn’t run out in front of her vehicle. I bet I could have corralled in that little black lamb.

My person said at night she saw the Milky Way stretching all the way across the sky.

Now I’m getting hungry. That sounds like something good to eat.

Then my person said that along with the Milky Way she saw thousands of stars all over the sky.

That doesn’t make sense. Who wants stars in their food dish?

I really started getting angry because my person left me home and went to a place with all that good stuff – but then she told me one more thing.

She said along with the Milky Way and all those stars she saw lightning flashes on the horizon from a distant storm.

Thunder storm!? Yikes! Hey person, I’m sure glad you left me home.

    That sounds like a very special trip.

      Jen, my person says she had a good time. I just wish she’d get rid of the thunder storms and take me along.

    Nothing quite like getting out into the wild and seeing the milky way. One of my all time favourite things

      Susan, my person says where she was there was nothing blocking the view of the sky and it was very impressive.

    That church dog is kinda cute, but no competition for you. You are the king of all church dogs!

    Love and licks,

      Thanks Cupcake. My person says that church dog has been around for a couple years. She was surprised to see him this time because dogs have a pretty hard life there – but she said he was way healthier looking than the last time she saw him.

    Seeing the stars on a clear night is a wonderful thing Bongo. Tall person likes that – he says it reminds him that we are very, very, very small but each living thing and everything is important and connected.

      Bassa, it’s hard for me to think of you as small, but sometimes I bet we look at the same stars.

    I think your human should’ve brought you back some (doggy friendly) milky way to eat – sounds yummy to me:-)

    • Bongo

      July 20, 2012 at 9:24 pm

      Misaki, I’m still trying to figure out why she didn’t bring me any treats. When someone goes away aren’t they supposed to bring back gifts to those they left behind?

      • themisadventuresofmisaki

        July 20, 2012 at 9:59 pm

        yes they are!! Think your human needs some extra training…!

      • Bongo

        July 20, 2012 at 10:17 pm

        Misaki, I think I’m going to have to send my person to Obedience School.

        Its a good plan! i take mine every week…its slow going but they are heading in the right direction 🙂

    Just as well she didn’t take you with her! Maybe she is waiting for a thunder storm free night to take you out to see the Milky Way [along with some treats of course!].

    • Bongo

      July 21, 2012 at 12:32 pm

      Marina, once my person took me out at night to see an eclipse of the moon. I guess I’ll have to ask her about the Milky Way. She says we can see it here sometimes – just not so much of it all at one time.

    Bongo, the church dog is cute but you’re much much cutier than him!!!
    We haven’t seen “Milky Way” yet…..must be breathtaking!!! 🙂

    • Bongo

      July 21, 2012 at 12:34 pm

      Thanks Kevin. I’d hate to think that other church dog was cuter than me. My person says the Milky Way is really awesome. She says we can see it here too, but there are things blocking the view of the sky so you can’t see it all at once. I’d just like to know what it tastes like.

    no matter how many ‘church dogs ‘there are you are still the greatest and always will be

      Thanks Patreciau. I love you too.

    Hey Bongo, Jet here.

    Ah, mystery solved! I bet you and I could herd some sheep in no time flat… maybe Scooby Doo Academy has a field trip we could go on?

    See, your person looked out for your best interest, helped others and left you with loving people. Maybe next time you can go… 🙂

    • Bongo

      July 21, 2012 at 12:36 pm

      He Jet, we’d have a great time herding those sheep. Let’s see if there’s a field trip scheduled and sign up for it.

      • heyitsjethere

        July 21, 2012 at 1:07 pm

        Hey Bongo,

        Listen, it’s REALLY hot here… let’s find a herd that’s in a cooler location!

      • Bongo

        July 21, 2012 at 3:38 pm

        Hey Jet, my person says it was really nice where she saw those sheep. The elevation is about 6500′, so it stays cooler. We could go there.

      • heyitsjethere

        July 21, 2012 at 3:59 pm

        Bongo, count me in… I live in a TOTALLY flat place, that sounds fun!

    sounds like fun! Sheep and sheep dogs? Sounds like collie country to us! 🙂

    • Bongo

      July 21, 2012 at 8:48 pm

      Collies, maybe we can all go next time my person goes there.

    We know you would have been great with those sheep and the lamb. But the lightning, not good. We had storms with thunder and lightning and hail here most of the week, so we were happy to stay home and have our person keep us safe. You were safer at home this time too Bongo.

    • Bongo

      July 21, 2012 at 10:47 pm

      Lexie and Mica, we had thunder storms here today. I cowered in my hallway most of the day. I don’t like it one little bit.

  12. Chancy and Mumsy

    Sweet Bongo we think you would have enjoyed going to the Rez and seeing all those sheep. Sometimes we have to watch out for the competition but sometimes we find they can be good pals. That church dog looks like a sweetie. Glad to hear you were home though when the storm came. Hugs and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      July 22, 2012 at 12:57 pm

      Chancy and Mumsy, I really want to go see a bunch of sheep, but I haven’t been able to convince my person. And she said that church dog likes people but chases other dogs away – except for one other dog that is his best friend. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    I’m so sorry you didn’t get to go – and that you don’t like the thunderstorms.

    Love and licks, Winnie

    • Bongo

      July 22, 2012 at 1:02 pm

      Winnie, I’m still working on my person to take me next time she goes.

    bongo this is your persons friend. i’am sure you would get along with the rez dogs, although they are rather territorial and sleep outside and not afraid of thunder or anything. no one gives them treats and they have to find food for themselves, unless, i feed them. would you really like that, you old house dog you?

    • Bongo

      July 22, 2012 at 9:28 pm

      Nancy, I just want to visit when my person does. I wouldn’t want her to leave me there. My house is good as long as my person is around. It was fun to have you around for a few days too.

    O, sweet Bongo, you don’t have to compete with the church dog, you’re the best dog ever and always 🙂 That must have been great to see the Milky way, in fact that’s a double treat, that means of course, if the Milky way falls out of the sky directly into your mouth 😀

    • Bongo

      July 23, 2012 at 12:49 pm

      Thanks Angels Whisper. I think I’ll hold my mouth open every time I go outside at night – just waiting.
