I’m later than usual getting my post up today – for good reason. I just got home, but more about that in a bit.
Strange activity has been going on in my house. Stuff has been piling up in my living room. Stuff that usually stays in other parts of the house. I didn’t like it, but I figured I was safe because the suitcases weren’t coming out. When that happens I know I’m really in trouble.
Yesterday morning my younger person put all that stuff in his car. Then he left. A few minutes later my person got out my leash and told me to get in her car. Woo woo! We’re going for a ride. Where are we going? Swimming? The dog park?
The car stopped and I was ready to jump out when…
Wait a minute! This is the Dog Hotel! Turn around now. I don’t want to go here.
My person wouldn’t listen to me and she left me there.
Today my person came back for me. I’m home again now but my younger person is missing. I know he goes away sometimes, but this feels different. Like he’s gone for a long time.
My person says he went to a place called Ege and we can call him there.
You mean I can call Ege, but I can’t go there? Why not?
Come on person. I want to go to call Ege right now and tell my younger person to come back.

Oh no, you lost your young person to ege. I’m as confused as you. I have no idea where that is. Maybe your mom got confused and meant he went to get an egg.
August 11, 2012 at 1:54 pm
Susan, that would be good if my younger person went to get an egg, but I hope he comes back with it soon.
August 11, 2012 at 1:23 pm
I do not like disappearing people AT ALL. I also don’t know what Ege means, but I already don’t like it when people can go and disappear there! What the heck.
Love and licks,
August 11, 2012 at 1:56 pm
Cupcake, my person says she went to Ege with my younger person but she came back. My younger person called from there today. Maybe he’ll come back too.
August 11, 2012 at 1:31 pm
Poor Bongo. People leaving is a dreadful thing. Don’t they understand we get anxious about them?
The good news is, in my experience, if they leave with a lot of stuff, they always come back. I don’t know why.
August 11, 2012 at 1:58 pm
Delft, I hope you’re right. I miss my younger person already.
August 11, 2012 at 2:06 pm
It sounds like somebody may have gone to college (just a guess, I don’t now what the heck Ege is either)! When he comes back, he’ll be smarter!
August 11, 2012 at 2:09 pm
Jen, I hope my younger person doesn’t come back smarter than me. He might think he can write better blog posts than I do.
August 11, 2012 at 2:16 pm
Bongo, you’re looking so sad, I hope you’ll never have to go to the Hotel again and that your younger person will come back soon. The Ege is not the edge I hope!
August 11, 2012 at 3:23 pm
Angels Whisper, my person warned my I might have to go back to the dog hotel for another night. She says she’s going to help my person get all the stuff he needs. I don’t know why she won’t take me with her.
August 11, 2012 at 2:21 pm
I lost my best friend when he left to ege. Then he came back for a while. I hope he stays forever. But Mom keeps talking about getting my boy ready for army. Looks like soon my boy wlll be off again.
August 11, 2012 at 3:26 pm
Missy, army sounds just as scary as ege – but my person says our friends still get to come home sometimes.
August 11, 2012 at 4:00 pm
I still haven’t figured out what Ege is. This goes to show how much our pets can be confused when we do things that are off-routine, and why sometimes pets might “act out”. But you were a good dog through all this confusion, weren’t you Bongo. What a sport!
August 11, 2012 at 8:03 pm
Dawn, I was a very good dog. I’m always good. At least that’s what I say. My person says she doesn’t agree with me.
August 11, 2012 at 5:16 pm
Hey Bongo, Jet here.
OMD… I hope your younger person returns home soon. My human sister disappears every other week, so, I’m kind of used to her being away.
If ege is like that higher learning place, I’d offer to go and study for him, than he would take you for sure!!!
August 11, 2012 at 8:05 pm
Hey Jet, I think that Ege place is like the Scooby Doo Academy for people. That’s a great idea. I could study for my younger person if he’d take me there. But then I would have to take my person and my trails along with me.
August 11, 2012 at 8:30 pm
I actually thought about that exact situation when I commented, great K9 minds think alike!
August 11, 2012 at 5:19 pm
Our youngest person is doing that packing thing too. We think she is going to the same place. She keeps saying she wishes we could come but that we are not allowed and that she will miss us a lot. We want to go, but we don’t like to ride in the car. Hope your young person comes back and brings toys and treats. – The zoo
August 11, 2012 at 8:08 pm
Dogdaz, toys and treats would be good – and my younger person back too. I can’t figure out why our people go places that we’re not allowed.

Well Bongo I’m not sure what Ege is but sounds like it might be some sort of college. Maybe you can Skype with your younger person then you can see and hear him 🙂
August 11, 2012 at 8:16 pm
Misty Shores, my younger person talked to me on the phone today. He told me I was a bad dog because I snuck into his room while my person was on the phone with him and found goodies in his wastebasket.

Oh Bongo what’s a dog to do when I know you are upset at your current situation, I’m sure it was a slight slip on your part 🙂
August 11, 2012 at 8:53 pm
AWWW..Poor Bongo, I hope your not too sad. I’m sure your younger person will come back to see you again…:-)
August 11, 2012 at 9:14 pm
Penny, my person says he’s not too far away and he’ll be back to visit sometimes.

August 11, 2012 at 10:00 pm
Oh, sweet Bongo we are so sorry you are missing your younger person. We hope that he can come back from Ege very soon to see you and give you lots of hugs. I bet he misses you too. Hugs and nose kisses
August 11, 2012 at 11:02 pm
Chancy and Mumsy, I think my younger person will be back for visits. I guess he’s not too far away but my person says it’s farther than I can run.
August 11, 2012 at 10:42 pm
Bongo, your younger person has gone to the Ege of the world? I hope he doesn’t fall off and I also hope the Ege of the world is not too far away.
August 11, 2012 at 11:05 pm
Bassa, my person says the Ege of the world is close enough for weekend visits sometimes. I thought the world was really big so I guess most of it goes in the opposite direction from where my younger person went. I guess it’s good that it’s too far for me to run to because I might fall off.
August 12, 2012 at 2:05 am
Oh poor Bongo…..I really understand you missing your younger person already….I do hope your younger person comes back soon. I had a similar experience as you have because my mom had left me for 6months(!!!!!) long time ago. I truly missed her alot but fortunately my granny, grandpa and auntie were with me.
When she came back, I pretended that I didn’t recognize who she was!!! BOL! She was so upset at that time! It was a punishment from me!
August 12, 2012 at 12:55 pm
Kevin, do you think I should pretend not to recognize my younger person when he comes home again? My person says he will be home in a few days because he already misses
mehome and he doesn’t start that college thing for another week.
August 12, 2012 at 2:41 am
Who or what is ege? 😦
August 12, 2012 at 12:56 pm
Dianda, my person says my younger person went to college. That’s why I need to call Ege.
August 12, 2012 at 12:58 pm
Ooh, Ooh! I get it!
August 12, 2012 at 3:26 am
Don’t worry Bongo, I think Ege is a place where young people go to collect dirty laundry which they will bring home at weekends for you to sniff. 🙂
August 12, 2012 at 12:57 pm
Flo, you mean he will bring home his dirty laundry for me to play in? Awesome.
August 12, 2012 at 4:53 am
I like your answer Flo….I think he has gone to Uni or on holiday…he will be back. I always enjoy a night in a hotel but I suppose it does depend on who is there with you!!!
August 12, 2012 at 1:42 pm
Patreciau, my person says he has gone to college, but he’ll come back sometimes to visit.
August 12, 2012 at 5:22 am
I know how you feel Bongo, I had to stay in the doggy hotel last night. but my mummy and daddy felt so bad when they picked me up that they got me some treats and a new toy:-)
Hope your little person comes back soon!
August 12, 2012 at 1:43 pm
Misaki, now I know I’m really missing out. I never get treats and toys after a visit at the dog hotel. I’m going to have to have a talk with my person. Oh, and she said my younger person will be back in a few days for a visit but then he will be going away again.
August 12, 2012 at 6:53 am
You tell that Ege to bring your young person back, Bongo! Who’s the boss anyway?! Bet you’re gonna have great big hugs and loves when he returns! BTW your friend was wearing her pink thunder vest yesterday!
August 12, 2012 at 1:46 pm
Marina, I’m not sure what to do about my younger person. I guess he will come back for visits but he won’t stay. Did you have thunder yesterday? We didn’t have any yesterday but we’re supposed to get some today so I have my manly black vest on.

August 12, 2012 at 8:19 pm
Never fear – I bet your young person will be back for Turkey Day!
August 12, 2012 at 10:31 pm
Kat n Collies, I’m betting a turkey he will be back for visits before then – at least my person says he will.
August 13, 2012 at 1:03 am
When typist went away her dog claimed squatters rights and took over the bedroom, bed included. He was not at all impressed when she returned, claimed back his/her room (there is some debate now on ownership!) and put stuff in where he had put his toys!!
August 13, 2012 at 12:24 pm
Dalton, our people should probably get bigger houses so us dogs can have a room we don’t have to share. After all, we do have lots of toys and things we need to keep somewhere.
August 14, 2012 at 5:13 pm
How sad having to go to the dog motel! Sorry about the young person… they do that ya know. We have had a young person move out and when she comes home to visit Laddie wipes his nose on her…. guess he is calling her a snot.. heheheh
August 15, 2012 at 5:51 pm
Collies, my person says my younger person is coming home tonight for a few days. I think maybe I’ll try that wiping nose thing. The worst part is – my person made me stay in the dog hotel again last night because she went to visit my younger person at his new place.
