The Heart Man

27 Sep

Heart Rock and BongoMy person and I met this man on my trails and he stopped and gave me loves. Some people give me loves, but most of them just walk by. Sometimes they say something to me, but a lot of them ignore me. It’s really disappointing, but that makes it special when I do get loves.

This man talked to my person for a couple minutes – general stuff like how nice a day it was. Well of course it was a nice day. Anytime I get loves it’s a nice day.

We were about to go on when the man reached into his pocket and handed something to my person.

And then I realized who he was.

The Heart Man!

We don’t see him often. We’ve only seen him twice before. But whenever we see him he gives my person a little red rock shaped like a heart.

Bongo and a Heart Rock

I think it’s pretty cool that he does that – and especially cool that he gives me loves. But I think there’s one more thing he needs to do.

I wonder if he could get some heart shaped treats to hand out to dogs.

      Dianda, he must be. No one else gives me loves and my person hearts.

    Does the heart man chip the hearts out of rocks and hand them out to people? That’s pretty cool.

    And I agree, he should definitely start carrying dog-treats.

      Delft, I think the Heart Man may look for rocks that are already heart shaped. There’s lots of little red rocks around so if you look long enough you can find them. But treats sure would be better.

    What a great example of someone taking the time to make someone else’s day brighter. And who are these people who ignore you?! Your pictures attest to the fact that you are irresistible. If I saw you on your trails, I’d stop and give you lots of loves!

    There is no denying, it, Bongo: you are one photogenic dog! Here are some virtual loves: xoxoxo 😀

      Thanks Mom. I sure hope I see you on my trails someday.

    Wow, what a lovely man he is. And I’m sure you made his day extra happy with puppy loves. x

      Bumpy Road, I didn’t think of that. I bet I did brighten his day.

    Oh, that’s sweet! I’m sure next time he’ll have heart shaped treats for you too!

    • Bongo

      Marina, I sure hope so. Maybe he’ll read my blog and get the hint.

      Dalton, next time I see him I’ll send him your direction.

    if I could I would send you the biggest heart shaped dog biscuit that has ever been seen and I would send it with lots and lots of loves wrapped up in heart shaped paper xxxxxx

      Patriciau, I’m tasting that special treat from you already. The loves I get from you in your comments are just as good.

    That is sooo sweet:-) If only they were edible!

    • Bongo

      September 28, 2012 at 12:33 pm

      Misaki, I’m hoping next time I see him he’ll remember me and give me treats.

    “Anytime I get loves it’s a nice day.” And I hope you get love every single day.
    Do you give this man something in return? Maybe he needs love too 🙂

    • Bongo

      September 28, 2012 at 12:33 pm

      YouKai, I gave him lots of loves back.

    That Heart Man is so sweet, Bongo! I wish I could meet him and got love from him, too……the heart shaped read rock is amazing! It surly gives you and your person many happiness! 🙂

      Kevin, maybe someday that heart man will visit you. It is pretty cool getting heart shaped rocks that are actually red.

    That sounds like a nice man Bongo – maybe you could give him a hint next time by chewing on the stone heart, give him some drool & the Bongo eyes.

    • Bongo

      September 28, 2012 at 12:36 pm

      Diane and Lola, that’s a great idea. I’ll remember that.

    We like the heart man’s idea, how special. We think your idea of a heart shaped treat would be nice too sweet Bongo. Hugs and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      September 28, 2012 at 7:02 pm

      Chancy and Mumsy, maybe I should wear a sign around my neck when I’m on my trails that says, “Looking for treats – heart shaped or otherwise.” Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

        Perfect idea sweet Bongo.

    That sounds like a very nice man indeed and I think the heart dog treats would be a great idea, maybe your person could casually mention it to him 😉

    • Bongo

      September 28, 2012 at 8:29 pm

      Misty Shores, I’ve got an even better idea. My person could bring some heart treats along. Then if that man doesn’t have any I’d get my treats anyway.

    I think its really nice that he tries to brighten a persons day and stop to give you loves. It would be great if he has treats too, but I agree that if your Mom brought some you would get them anyway. Do they have little red or pink shaped heart treats?

    • Bongo

      September 28, 2012 at 10:39 pm

      Lexie and Mica, my person says she hasn’t seen any heart shaped treats – so I think I’m going to have to get her to make me some. She does have heart shaped cookie cutters.

        That’s what we need in this world: more people to give us “loves.” Keep spreading the word, Bongo cause we sure do need it!

      • Bongo

        September 29, 2012 at 11:57 am

        Sandra, I’d give you loves anytime. Come on over.

    Hey Bongo, Jet here. Hi Miss Laura.

    Dude, that’s so cool, does he carve them? We love paying forward kindness… you deserve the heart and the lovies that come with it. 🙂

    • Bongo

      September 30, 2012 at 7:57 pm

      Hey Jet, I think the Heart Man finds the rocks that way. There are all kinds of little red rocks on my trails so he probably looks around until he finds the ones shaped like hearts.

    That is so cool! What a way to make someone’s day so much better! 🙂

      Collies, getting loves and hearts are pretty cool.

    That’s nice of him, Bongo, maybe next time he’ll gives you heart shaped treats… btw where can I find that heart man 😀

      Angels Whisper, we only see the Heart Man every few months, so maybe he travels around the world in between.
