Left Out of the Adventure

28 Aug

No Bongo AdventuresMy people went on an adventure last night and didn’t invite me – the dog who lives for adventures. I’m not even sure what kind of adventure they went on. A treasure hunt maybe?

Here’s what happened. My younger person left kind of late last night and said he was going back to that college place. I think maybe he said that so I wouldn’t try to go with him.

My person and I went into her bedroom and she turned out the lights. So far, so good. This happens almost every night around here.

But then, I heard that strange sound. The one that makes her pick up that little thing and talk to it. I’ve never been able to figure out what she’s doing – except that she ignores me when she’s talking to it. She hardly ever talks to that thing after she’s turned out the lights, but when she finished talking to it, she turned out the lights a second time.

But then you know what she did? She talked to that thing again and left the house and drove off in her car. And she didn’t take me!

Just me and Scratchy alone in the house – in the dark. This is not right.

My person was gone for a long time and it was starting to get light when I heard her car. I know she was on an adventure because she brought my younger person back with her. This college place he keeps talking about must be all made up.

My younger person slept for awhile and then left again in his little car. He must have lost the other one on the adventure. He’s still insisting that he’s going to that made up college place.

If my person talks to that thing again tonight, I’m blocking the door so she can’t get out without taking me with her. I’ve got to make sure they don’t lose another car in that black hole they call the college place.

    I simply can’t believe this!!! You are not allowed on adventures anymore?

      Sweet Kitten, for some reason my people didn’t want me on their middle of the night adventure. I still get to go on trail adventures though.

    Wow, sweet Bongo we sure wish your mom had taken you on that adventure so you could tell us what happened to that car. Leaving you home like that with not a word…oh, my goodness!! If she goes on another adventure you run real quick out the door with her and refuse to stay behind. Hugs and nose kisses

      Chancy and Mumsy, I’m out that door now. My person says the car isn’t running though which is bad. That was what they took me in to go to the trail where my swimming hole is.

    what a wonderful brave dog you are Bongo! To be left alone, you and Scratchy…left alone to guard the house and to keep everything safe. You really are a hero!
    Sounds to me as if younger person went to a party, drunk too much and could not drive home again. So maybe that is why your person had to go to get him….or maybe his car broke down….

    So look at it this way…you were not left out of the adventure but you saved the day by being hero enough to guard the house

      Patreciau, my person says the car broke down. I guess I had to stay here to make sure the house didn’t break down.

    That is just so unfair.
    Tell you what. Maybe you should go out and have some adventures on your own, without your people? Then they’d know how good you are in adventure mode!

    • Bongo

      August 28, 2012 at 7:09 pm

      Delft, I’ve had a few adventures of my own. For some reason my people aren’t very happy with me when I do that.

    Bongo, that’s soooo not fair. Adventures are rubbish without us doggies around! Next time you need to insist on going too!!

    • Bongo

      August 28, 2012 at 7:10 pm

      Misaki, next time I’m not letting my person out the door without taking me.

    OMG, B! Alone and In The Dark are two words I do not like. And disappearing cars are NEVER a good thing. What a night you had! Hang in there, Buddy.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, I guess the car that takes me to my swimming hole trail is broken. But at least my person is back to be with me next time it’s dark.

    Aw, poor Bongo. You should’ve gone on the car ride!

    • Bongo

      August 28, 2012 at 7:13 pm

      Jen, I agree with you. Next time I’m jumping in the car.

    You should occupy your place, protest and demand your rights and adventures!

      Doggy’s Style, I’m making my protest signs right now.

    You had to stay to guard the house Bongo. Who knows what would have happened if you weren’t there? Sometimes if you chew on that thing your person talks into it stops making noises you know… just sayin’

    • Bongo

      August 28, 2012 at 7:16 pm

      Lola, I think I know where my person keeps that thing. I’ll have to see if it tastes good.

    You and Scratchy should have made your own adventure in the house 😉

    • Bongo

      August 28, 2012 at 7:16 pm

      Misty Shores, I would have done it but Scratchy is such a party poop.

    Oh, no! You were left to hold the fort and to put on a brave face for Scratchy…and all that time from dark to light. Sudden changes to routines! What a disturbing mystery. Stay close to your Person!

    • Bongo

      August 28, 2012 at 7:19 pm

      Karen, next time I’m jumping in the car. Scratchy can be brave for himself.

    Phew! It all sounds very confusing Bongo! 🙂

      Bassa, the missing vehicle showed up today on a tow truck. It wasn’t crashed, but the insides are messed up.

    Bongo, somebody had to take care of the house and Scratchy, while your person was gone 🙂

    • Bongo

      August 29, 2012 at 9:18 pm

      Angels Whisper, I guess I did have to stay home to make sure Scratchy didn’t get into any mischief.

    It sounds like your person had a bit of an ordeal last night… maybe she needs your comforting licks and paws! I’m sure she wouldn’t leave you behind for no reason! Remember when they’re away you are master of the house and have a serious task: protect house and …well, Scratchy!

    • Bongo

      August 29, 2012 at 9:19 pm

      Marina, my person came home and went back to bed. But I was good and made sure Scratchy didn’t get into any mischief while she was gone.

    All sounds very strange to me!! I wonder what’s going on??

    • Bongo

      August 29, 2012 at 9:23 pm

      Dalton, the missing vehicle showed up on a tow truck today. It’s not messed up on the outside, but my person says it’s messed up on the inside.

      • Dalton

        August 30, 2012 at 12:48 am

        I think you need to do some further detective work!

      • Bongo

        August 30, 2012 at 6:20 pm

        Dalton, I may have to stick my nose under the hood of that vehicle and see if there are any interesting smells.

      • Dalton

        August 31, 2012 at 12:50 am

        i think you should!

    Oh! The rush of the moment. I think your person did talk with the younger on the celphone and he needed some help with the car 😮
    So, cheers! Seems like your persons entrust the house to you (and maybe Scratchy) ♥

    • Bongo

      August 29, 2012 at 9:27 pm

      YouKai, I had to make sure Scratchy didn’t get away with any mischief. And the car showed up today on a tow truck.

    That is just so unfair Bongo!

    • Bongo

      Bassetmomma, next time I’m sneaking out the door and into the car.

    Oh no! Your person makes a mistake! If she wants to do a night adventure, she should take you with her as you’ll protect her whatever happens….there are many dangerous stuff st night, aren’t they? Woof! 🙂

    • Bongo

      August 29, 2012 at 9:30 pm

      Kevin, I’ve got to make sure my person knows she needs my protection before she does this again. After all, she could be attacked by a pack of wild coyotes or something.

    I’m sorry they didn’t take you, Bongo. 😦

      Dianda, me too. I miss out on all the fun – well, some of the fun.

    Gingers says chew up the talky thingie or drop it in the toilet…..hehehehe

    • Bongo

      September 2, 2012 at 1:04 pm

      Ginger, I don’t think that talky thing tastes very good so I might skip the chewing up part and just drop it in the toilet.
