There’s somebody in my yard. And they’re not supposed to be there.
It’s some of those coyotes – or javelinas.
And I’m going to get ‘em.
I’ve got to be quiet though. If I start barking I’ll wake up my person and then I’ll never get to them.
They’re out this way. Maybe I can get through this window. I’ve got to get up on this table to get to it.
Oops, I knocked the stuff down. I’ll just drag this pillow and the sheet to the center of the room so it’s out of the way. The note cards can stay where they fell. They’re little. I don’t think my person will notice them there.
This window’s not working. I can’t seem to get through it. What about the door? No luck here, but I messed up the doormat. I’d better put it in the pile too.
Hey, wait a minute. I think there’s a secret way out through the bathroom. Let me check.
What’s this bathmat doing in my way? I bet it’s covering the secret entrance. I’d better get it out of here.
I’ve got one more option and these boxes are in front of this window. How am I going to get them out of here?
Wow! They tear apart pretty easily.
Oh oh. I hear my person. She never comes out to this room in the middle of the night. What kind of coincidence is that? I didn’t bark or anything so there’s no way she could know I was here.
Hey person, I’m sure glad you decided to come out here. Check it out. I was just straightening up a few things for you.

It would be so much easier and more dog appropriate if all the stuff was in the center of the room…leaves the perimeter clear to race around from door to window to window to door …
Maybe your person will catch on after your demonstration?
October 22, 2012 at 5:10 pm
Karen, it does make for a much better play and exercise area. I bet even Scratchy would like me for it. Sometimes he likes to run around the house too.
October 22, 2012 at 10:45 am
Oh-Oh… It doesn’t look too good Bongo! Better make sure you put on your best smile …and blame that errr rat,?!!!
October 22, 2012 at 5:12 pm
Marina, I think that pesky squirrel did it. I saw him sneaking around again today.
October 22, 2012 at 10:58 am
words fail me! I thought that you were a good dog…look at the mess you made! Don’t you feel ashamed……it’s a good thing that I still love you …you naughty boy xxxxxxx
October 22, 2012 at 5:13 pm
Patreciau, I put everything into a neat little pile.
October 22, 2012 at 11:04 am
I hope your person appreciates your efforts to protect the house. If they’d only leave a door open at night, you wouldn’t need to work so hard! Nice work, B.
Love and licks,
October 22, 2012 at 5:15 pm
Cupcake, I don’t know why my person won’t leave a door open. Then if I didn’t wake up soon enough the coyotes could come in and play with me. And if they didn’t I’d run out and give them what for.
October 22, 2012 at 11:10 am
Like cupcake says, such valuable efforts of protection should be praised by your human!! 😀 althought,mwhat did that bath mat ever do to you ?! ;)) xxx
October 22, 2012 at 5:16 pm
Chaotic Scribbles, I’m sure there’s a secret way to get outside from the bathroom and that bathmat was covering it up. The only problem is that when I moved the bathmat the secret exit moved too. I’m gonna keep looking for it though.
October 22, 2012 at 11:32 am
Don’t make a mess in the dark Bongo! Your person could trip over it! 😉
October 22, 2012 at 5:18 pm
Dianda, my person wasn’t supposed to find that
messpile until the sun came up.
October 22, 2012 at 12:32 pm
I’m glad you’re quick on your paws, Bongo. Do you think she fell for it?
October 22, 2012 at 5:22 pm
Sage, I think she did but she didn’t like where I put everything. She put it all back where it had been.
October 22, 2012 at 1:33 pm
Bongo, hope your humans appreciate your efforts!
October 22, 2012 at 5:22 pm
Misaki, I worked so hard and then my person put everything back where it had been before.
October 22, 2012 at 1:40 pm
Well, at least you made just one pile, Bongo. That’s pretty good!
October 22, 2012 at 5:23 pm
Jen, I would have made a few more piles if my person hadn’t come out and found me there.
October 22, 2012 at 2:13 pm
With that honest look in your eyes, Bongo, who could doubt your story ?
October 22, 2012 at 5:24 pm
Delft, I know. I can’t figure out why my person ever doubts what I say.
October 22, 2012 at 2:38 pm
Hey Bongo, Jet here.
Dude… Little night patrol, huh?
October 22, 2012 at 5:24 pm
Hey Jet, I’ve got to keep the house protected. You never know who’s going to show up in the night.
October 22, 2012 at 8:37 pm
Exactly… I totally understand…
October 23, 2012 at 12:31 am
Oh, Bongo, that was quite an excitement, I guess … lol 😀
October 23, 2012 at 11:47 am
Angels Whisper, it was exciting when I thought I might find my way out – then my person showed up. Oops.
October 23, 2012 at 12:59 am
I can’t believe you went and did all the hard work so quietly while making sure the house is secure!! I hope you got thanked for all your quiet hard work?! Or is she still hidding her guilt??
October 23, 2012 at 11:48 am
Dalton, I still can’t figure out why my person came out there since I was being so quiet. Maybe she noticed I wasn’t in her room and she missed me. I think she must still feel really guilty.
October 24, 2012 at 5:06 am
it could take a while for her to get over it! Keep up your good work to help her get over it!
October 23, 2012 at 6:27 am
BOL! Bongo, you look very mischievious on the picture….Very cute! 🙂
October 23, 2012 at 11:49 am
Thanks Kevin. I had to put on my best Monday Mischief face.

Good job keeping your house secure !! I’m sure your person was really happy to get up in the middle of the night to help you !! No ? That’s odd !!
Woos of love.
Echo & Link
October 23, 2012 at 11:50 am
Echo & Link, I think those yard invaders ran when my person showed up. She kind of took all the fun away.
October 23, 2012 at 11:11 am
Boy Bongo, too bad your person’s such a lousy housekeeper & she’s got you to at least try & pick up after her!
October 23, 2012 at 11:53 am
Lola, it sometimes is a really challenge to pick up after my person. I keep trying, but then she usually messes everything up again. A dog’s life can be a challenge sometimes.
October 23, 2012 at 2:23 pm
You don’t think Mom could have heard all those things falling on the floor, or you dragging things into a pile? I’m afraid Mom would be down with in minutes with all that going on 😦
October 23, 2012 at 2:41 pm
Lexie and Mica, you think that’s what my person heard? And I thought Scratchy told on me.
October 24, 2012 at 2:19 am
Uh oh! Your ears are giving you away in that photo Bongo 🙂
October 24, 2012 at 11:18 pm
Bumpy Road, you can tell all my secrets. Please don’t let my person know about the ear thing.
October 25, 2012 at 2:24 am
It’s mumma here Bongo – I’ve seen that look too many times. I’m sure your person has too – even if she doesn’t let on!

When all else fails say the cat did it 😉
October 27, 2012 at 1:09 pm
Misty Shores, I tried to convince my person the cat did it but she wouldn’t believe me. So I’m changing my story. Scratchy put me up to it.
October 31, 2012 at 3:36 pm
Ginger is impressed! Woo hooo! Next time, get some of scratchy’s fur and place it on each item and scratchy will get in trouble and then when scratchy is in time out eat the cat food! Muwahahaha
October 31, 2012 at 9:58 pm
Ginger, great idea. Since Scratchy leaves clumps of his fur all over the house that would be easy to mix it up with the stuff. I have to be careful when I steal his food though. If my person catches me I might get put in time out.
