Globe Mallow

Bongo Behind Bars

I’m stuck at the dog hotel and I take no responsibility for what’s posted here.

My person went off to Colorado and I’m stuck in the dog hotel. I wasn’t allowed to bring the computer with me so I take no responsibility for what is posted on my blog.

Lately my person has been making me hang out and wait a lot while she gets her camera out to take pictures. It’s flower season again on my trails but the globe mallow usually hangs out all summer long.




Globe Mallow

For some reason these flowers just started coming out this year. A couple of them tried to make it early in the summer but they fizzled out. It was really hot and dry before that dreaded thunder season started.

These flowers grow on bushes and when they have all summer to grow the bushes sometimes get really big.

But I think my person is spending far too much time with her camera.

Time to go.

    Oh, No Bongo! …not allowed to bring your computer? What kind of hotel is this?!!!!

      Marina, I think my person is afraid that some other dog will get hold of it.

        …from you? No way!!!

        Marina, that’s what I told my person – but she wouldn’t listen to me.

      Thanks Sweet Kitten. It’s no fun when my person takes off without me. I don’t think she should be allowed to go without taking me along.

    This is terrible..poor Bongo locked up like a jailbird. And you look so sad! I shall send you a file so you can get yourself out….it will be concealed in a juicy bone.

    We could start a petition… FREE BONGODOG

    but I did like the pretty flowers xxxx

      Thanks Patreciau. That file would be great. Even if it doesn’t work I would have fun getting it out of that juicy bone.

    If humans in jail turn body builders, and get law degrees – I can only fret what is happening to you, Bongo! Even RC Cat is concerned (she of the no animals behind bars movement) but says friends make most any situation better.

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 6:43 pm

      Karen, I’m sure glad you and even RC are my friends. I have a few friends here too – but don’t tell my person. She might think I’m having too much fun and send me here all the time.

    Try to enjoy yourself, but don’t tell your humans if you do! If they think you were sad they’ll probably get you lots of toys, treats and cuddles:-)

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 6:44 pm

      Misaki, I do have some good buddies to play with here, but when my person comes back to get me I’ll pull the so sad and can’t wait to get out of here looks.

    We are so sorry you are back at the kennel! Our mom tells us she managed a kennel for 10 years, and went out of her to pay attention to all the dogs…and our girl is working there now. She is following in mom’s footsteps! We hope you have people working at your kennel who love dogs as much as our people! And we hope you get to go home soon!

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 6:45 pm

      Kat n Collies, there are some nice people at this kennel. But don’t tell my person that. She might make me stay here more often.

    I hate to be the one to have to tell you, but that “hotel” looks an awful lot like JAIL! What’s up with that? Should I bake a biscuit with a saw in it?

    Love and licks,

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 6:48 pm

      Cupcake, please bake a biscuit with a saw in it. Even if the saw doesn’t work I can at least eat the biscuit.

    Oh Bongo what a sad photo of you. Best wishes….

    • Bongo

      Thanks Jennifer. I’m sure hoping my person comes back for me soon.

    O, sweet Bongo, you poor guy…but I have something for you to cheer you up. I nominated you for The wonderful team member readership award… well, are you feeling now a little bit better?

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 6:58 pm

      Thanks Angels Whisper. That just made my day. But I’ve still got to figure a way out of this dog hotel.

    Poor Bongo, you look so sad behind bars. I hope there are more dogs staying in the hotel that you can make friends with. Maybe even some nice gals???

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 6:59 pm

      Delft, I’m checking it out now. New girlfriends! Woo woo!

    Bongo! That’s not a dog hotel! It’s a dog JAIL! We’ve gotta bust you out!

    Your mallow is very pretty. I love the color. I have zebra mallow in my yard and it takes over the side garden every summer.

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 7:01 pm

      FleaByte, if all my blogging friends get together, maybe you can bust me out of here. My person says she used to have a great big globe mallow plant in the back yard, but it got taken out when she had some work done in the yard.

    OH! you poorpoor baby. sorry i don,t live closer you could stay with me as i did when i visited your person Bongo. but knowing how scared you get {you chicken dog,you] i don’t think you could handle the flght to the east coast.

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 7:03 pm

      Nancy, my person says she heard about two dogs dying recently while on airplane flights – so she says no airplane rides for me. Could you come out here and stay at my house with me? You could come rescue me from the dog hotel. Oh, my person says to tell you she got to hang out with Kitty and Earl for awhile today.

    What cute flowers! I like the color.

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 7:04 pm

      Thanks Rumpy. My person really likes the color of these flowers too.

    Not allowed to bring your computer? Pfft! Take it anyway!

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 7:05 pm

      Dianda, I think my person took the computer with her – which is totally no fair. I mean – who has the blog and needs the computer the most.

    Sorry you had to go to the hotel. But your person put the blog to good use while you were gone. Those flowers are gorgeous!

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 7:06 pm

      Thanks Shary. I wish I could get out of here though. I would even let my person keep putting flowers on my blog.

    Oh Bongo you look so sad 😦 but those flowers are very pretty 🙂

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 7:08 pm

      Thanks Misty Shores. If you could please come and rescue me from this dog hotel I’ll give you some of those flowers. They might even have a message on them.

      • Misty Shores Chesapeakes

        October 2, 2012 at 7:10 pm

        Oh dear Bongo if only I was closer I would rescue you in a hear beat and you could play with my gang until your person gets home 🙂

      • Bongo

        October 2, 2012 at 8:14 pm

        Misty Shores, that sounds so much fun. I wish you were closer too.

    I’m sorry Bongo, but those are some beautiful flowers! I can see why your mom was taking a lot of pictures of them!

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2012 at 8:00 pm

      Brown Newfies, I’ll let my person take all the pictures she wants – as long as she lets me out of the dog hotel.

    October 1, 2012 at 7:54 pm

    They’re kidding – right? NO COMPUTER! But you have blogs to keep up on where the bestest treats are! Your flowers are beautiful – are they poppy?

      October 1, 2012 at 8:02 pm

      Miss Kodee, my person doesn’t trust the computer in the dog hotel so she took it with her. She said she would make sure my blog posts get up. That’s what’s making me nervous. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Does she not realise it is your trail for your walks??

    • Bongo

      October 2, 2012 at 7:49 pm

      Dalton, you’d think my person would know that – but sometimes I don’t think she’s very smart.

      • Dalton

        October 3, 2012 at 12:43 am

        They are all the same going along in their own little world!!!

        October 3, 2012 at 8:13 pm

        Dalton, I guess we have to snap our people out of it.

    What a beautiful place you live in! Ginger says just water the flowers and eventually you wont have to stop at all.. muwahahahahahah

    • Bongo

      October 2, 2012 at 7:52 pm

      Ginger, I’m working on that.

    Whatever you do Bongo, do not get a tatoo!

    • Bongo

      October 2, 2012 at 8:05 pm

      Diane and Lola, I was kind of thinking about it – it seems to be going around this place. But then I realized that no one would be able to see it through my hair anyway.

  22. eripanwkevin

    October 2, 2012 at 7:50 am

    Yes I agree with Rumpy! The flower is pawsome and I love the color, too! In fact, My mom’s healing color is orange, so we love the color as it looks like sun!
    Poor Bongo… look sad….or you just pretending? Anyway I hope your person will get you out from the dog jail…”Oops!” no….dog hotel soon! 🙂

    • Bongo

      October 2, 2012 at 8:07 pm

      Kevin, my person loves this color too. I can’t let my person know that I sometimes have fun playing with other dogs at the dog hotel – she might make me stay here even longer.

    In that hotel, can you make other friends? I wish we could see you playing along with them :3
    Enjoy it ❤

    • Bongo

      October 2, 2012 at 8:07 pm

      YouKai, I do get to play with other dogs – but I don’t want my person to know that I sometimes have fun here.
