Under a Tree

05 Oct
Bongo Behind Bars

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

I really blew it the other day. I’m not sure how it happened. I was hanging out waiting while my person had her camera out – again. She was taking those sunflower pictures that were on yesterday’s post.

I got tired of waiting and found some good smells under a tree.





Bongo sniffing a vine with purple flowers

I didn’t think anything of it. Someone had left me a message and I was getting ready to leave one back – when I looked up and here comes my person, crawling under the tree toward me.

Come on, person. I’m not doing anything – really. I’m just checking out the messages around here.

Hey person, you look really silly all stooped down and crawling around under this tree. This is dog’s territory. People aren’t supposed to be under here.

You’re not going to make me go back home already, are you? We haven’t even gone on our walk yet. Why don’t you crawl back out of here so we can go?

I’m not in trouble, am I?

I couldn’t believe it. Was my person going nuts? Does she think she’s a dog now? I quickly left a message on those flowers, hoping that would make my person turn around and find her way out of there.

But you know what she did? She whipped out her camera instead. Sometimes I just can’t figure people out.

    Maybe she wants to be a dog?

      Dianda, that’s got to be what it is. My person must finally be realizing how much more fun it is being a dog.

        I think it’s lots of fun being a dog! 🙂

        Dianda, it’s lots of fun – except when I have to stay at the dog hotel – but don’t tell my person that I sometimes have fun there. She might leave me there longer.

        Thanks Dianda. It can be our secret.

    How much longer until you can go home Bongo? This picture of you is breaking our hearts!

      Kat n Collies, I’m so glad somebody cares. I think I get to come home on Monday.

    Maybe since you are such a good finder of interesting stuff your person just had to see what you were sniffing…I think she was taking a chance on the accuracy of your aim though.

      Patricia, I don’t think my person was expecting me to leave a message then. But I was nice to her. I didn’t want other dogs coming up to read my messages on her.

        Very thoughtful…I think…

    I think that your person is trying to bribe us with beautiful photos of flowers so that we don’t feel bad about you being in a hotel! I agree with Kat n collies, that bar photo is heart breaking! I can’t wait to hear your hotel stories!

    • Bongo

      October 7, 2012 at 1:45 pm

      Marina, I think you’re right. My person thinks you won’t feel so sorry for me if you have beautiful flowers to look at. I can’t wait until I can get out and leave some more messages on them.

        Thanks Patricuau. I’m looking forward to leaving some more messages on them.

      Patreciau, it’s been a long haul but my person promises me that she’s breaking me out of here tomorrow.

    I think that your person has been envious of your behavior and wants to do what you do, no? Bongo? I always appreciate of your person as she puts thses beautiful flower pictures for us! 🙂

      Thanks Kevin. I think my person does realize that it’s more fun being a dog.

    Sometimes the person rubs off on the dog & sometimes the dog rubs off on the person. Probably practicing tracking is my guess.

      Diane and Lola, maybe my person was tracking me down. If she was, I guess her eyesight is as bad as her sense of smell.

    Humans are so silly sometimes, Bongo! It’s hard to explain…it’s just in our DNA! 😉

    • Bongo

      October 7, 2012 at 1:57 pm

      Jessica, I thought I was beginning to understand my person – and then she goes and does something strange.

    Strange activity in deed from your person Bongo 😉

    • Bongo

      Misty Shores, I think I have my person figured out – and then she goes and does something like this. People are so unpredictable sometimes.

    Bongo, did your person left a message on the flowers too, because if she did, she must have some dog-blood 😉

    • Bongo

      Angels Whisper, my person wastes all her message juice when she’s in the bathroom. She doesn’t know what she’s missing.

        I used to have to crawl all over to untangle my Tanya when we lived in PC, FL. No wonder you wound up in jail.

    Sandra, I do my best to get wound up in things sometimes, but most of the time my person holds tight to my leash so I can’t go into those places. I guess those flowers made her silly and she forgot.

    Wow! The collies are in awe.. she recorded your messages so they last forever!!!

    • Bongo

      Collies, I guess sometimes it is worth waiting for my person to take pictures – at least when they’re of my messages.

    Poor Bongo! So sad to see in in “jail” 😦
    Here’s to your soon to be freedom and more adventures through your eyes 🙂

    • Bongo

      October 16, 2012 at 7:24 pm

      Thanks Zen and Genki. I finally made it out of the dog hotel – but boy did it wear me out. I think I’m getting back to normal now.
