Whose Friend is it Anyway?

06 Sep

Bongo looking for all the attentionNobody told me I was getting a visitor today. Woo woo! It’s my little friend.

Or at least I thought it was my little friend. Today he seems to be my person’s little friend. They’re hanging out on the floor together and ignoring me. How can that be? The floor is my territory. Anyone on the floor should be playing with me.

At first I tried to distract them and get all the attention.

My person – of all things – locked me away in another room. How could she?

She finally let me out – I think all that scratching on the door helped – and I figured I’d better share the attention so I wouldn’t get locked up again.

I don’t believe it. I tried to be really nice and share all the attention and I still got ignored.

Guess I’ll hang out in the corner for awhile and chew my antler.

Finally! My little friend gave me a hug.

And even better yet. I got a treat!

Woo woo! Little friend, you can come over here any time.

    That’s a cute little friend Bongo (not as cute as you of course). As long as those treats keep coming, I’d let him visit anytime.

      Diane, that’s what I thought too. I’ll let anyone visit who gives me treats.

      Chancy and Mumsy, I had a great time with my little friend once he started paying attention to me – especially when he gave me treats. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    The hug picture is super-sweet! And shows off your beautiful pink tongue to great advantage, Bongo!

      Thanks Delft. It was good to have my little friend hug me because before that he was ignoring me and just playing with my person.

    Bongo, you’re just going to have to learn to share things just like the rest of us.

    I guess cookies make up for being ignored…… Kinda.

    • Bongo

      September 6, 2012 at 5:35 pm

      Rumpy, it was good getting cookies – but cookies and lots of attention would be even better.

    You are as big as your little friend Bongo and the photos are wonderful. Maybe if you continue to share you won’t have to get locked in the room again 🙂

    • Bongo

      September 6, 2012 at 5:36 pm

      Thanks Misty Shores. I get so excited when someone comes over to visit me. I just don’t know why my person doesn’t understand.

    how nice! Is your friend a relative? I hope he is, so he can come visit you often! 🙂

    • Bongo

      September 6, 2012 at 7:58 pm

      Kat n Collies, my person is an honorary aunt to my little friend – so he’s almost like a relative.

      Marina, you’d think my little friend would want to do nothing but play with me. Thanks.

    Oh, sweet Bongo, these photo’s are so adorable. You really had a great time with the little twofeet, don’t you. I’ve never seen you smiling so much as today 🙂

    • Bongo

      September 7, 2012 at 1:49 pm

      Thanks Angels Whisper. I love it when my little friend comes over – but I wish he’d spend more time focusing on me.

    Hey Bongo, what breed of dog are you? You look a lot like my Toady, and we have been trying to figure out what he is for years!

    • Bongo

      September 7, 2012 at 2:09 pm

      Fostricken, when my people adopted me they were told I’m a pointer mix – and I do actually point sometimes when I smell something good. It also said something about maybe some shepherd in me on one of the papers they got.

      • fostrickson

        September 7, 2012 at 2:46 pm

        I see. Well, whatever you are, you sure are a handsome boy! On Toady’s papers they said “husky X”, but he is way bigger than any husky we have ever seen!

    Looks like in the end you had a lot of fun Bongo! 🙂 The collies hate being ignored too…

    • Bongo

      September 9, 2012 at 10:29 pm

      Collies, my little friend finally came around and decided to give me some attention. Then I had great fun.

    Hey Bongo, Jet here.

    Ahhhhh… patience is rewarded… love those hugs and antlers. 🙂

    • Bongo

      September 9, 2012 at 10:35 pm

      Hey Jet, I agree – hugs and antlers are the best.

    Everyone knows that anyone or anything on the floor is meant to be played with – it’s the rules! 🙂

    • Bongo

      September 10, 2012 at 12:26 pm

      Bassa, I totally agree with those rules. Scratchy doesn’t like them though so if I try to play with him on the floor he jumps onto something high. My little friend should always play with me though.
