Long Things and Square Things

23 Oct

Artists in the WoodsI see the strangest things on my trails sometimes, but today I found people doing strange things. Usually the people I see are busy walking on the trail, but these people weren’t. I’m not sure what they were doing, but I guess my person wanted to know too so we went over to investigate.

Sorry person, you cannot share my Detective Dog hat with me. That’s for me alone, even if you do help me with the investigation.

We wandered off the trail and went over to where these people were, and we found a bunch of guys mixing colors with long things and then wiping the long things onto some square things.

It didn’t make any sense to me but my person talked to them and found out the guys were part of the Sedona Plein Air Festival.

I’m not sure what that festival is, but I always thought we had pretty nice air here. I didn’t know it was plain. And why would people want to have a festival for plain air anyway?

We hung around for awhile and my person talked to the guys and looked at their square things with the color on them. I’m not sure what she was looking at. I think they had used up all their rags and those square things were all they had left to wipe stuff off on.

But then something happened and I decided that having a festival for our plain air wasn’t so bad after all.

      Alex and Penny, that might have been fun to have colors wiped on me. I could have rolled over and made something pretty.

    Friends are nice. I wish they used their long things to make a picture of you, B. You’re so cute.

    Love and licks,

      Thanks Cupcake. My person says those new friends will be around town all week. Maybe I could hang out with them and get them to make a picture of me.

    Hey Bongo, Jet here.

    What a treat on your trails today… Maybe next time you could ask them if they could use the long things to make a square thingie of you!

    Ha! Guess you got them to pay attention to what’s important: Bongo! (You are so kind to share your trails.)

      Karen, it was pretty cool when they left their long and square things to give me loves.

    I bet they could use a model & you could make big bucks, being such a handsome dude & all. I’m waiting for talent scouts to discover me … okay maybe it would have to be for plus size girls.

    • Bongo

      October 23, 2012 at 2:39 pm

      Thanks Lola. I bet I could get all kinds of loves by being a model. But I got loves anyway and I didn’t even have to sit still for them.

      Misaki, I did turn on my charm for them.

    NEW FRIEND! They should have a new friend festival, huh?

    • Bongo

      October 23, 2012 at 2:40 pm

      FleaByte, a new friend festival sounds good. Maybe if no one else starts one I should.

    All’s well that ends with a new friend!

      Will and Eko, I agree. Friends are the best!

    Bongo, that’s great, a new friend. Maybe he’ll paint a picture of you, that would be a masterpiece 🙂

    • Bongo

      October 24, 2012 at 11:15 pm

      Thanks Angels Whisper. That would be really cool if he’d paint a picture of me.

    Ah, that’s so nice Bongo …not at all surprising of course as you are one of a kind!
    How come you and your person didn’t take part in this festival? 🙂

      one cuddle and you are anybody’s! I would love to be the one to give you such a big big cuddle and some kisses…..but it’s nice that you made a new friend

      • Bongo

        October 24, 2012 at 11:20 pm

        Patreciau, I’m saving a cuddle and some kisses just for you. But that new friend gave pretty good cuddles too.

    • Bongo

      October 24, 2012 at 11:17 pm

      Marina, you have to be a really good professional artist to be in this festival. They only choose 30 people from all over the United States. My person says she’s going to go to one of the festival events tomorrow though.

    I wonder if some of them did paint you on their canvas.
    In every place where people is gathering to enjoy the nature, it is likely you will receive loves.
    Nice to see you discovery new things in your trails!

    • Bongo

      October 24, 2012 at 11:20 pm

      YouKai, my trails are the best because new things and people are always showing up. Maybe I will be famous in a painting.

    The last picture is so lovely Bongo! It looks as if you are whispering a secret to your new friend!
    Your person sometimes use the long things and square things, too doesn’t she? or She doesn’t use colors?

    • Bongo

      October 24, 2012 at 11:23 pm

      Kevin, yes my person sometimes uses those long things and wipes colors onto square things. She hasn’t done it for awhile though. I guess I’m keeping her too busy typing up my blog posts. Maybe I should learn to type so she can do that again.

    Ahhh, sweet Bongo how could anyone not be friends with you. We are happy to hear you met a new friend. Hugs and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      October 24, 2012 at 11:23 pm

      Chancy and Mumsy, it was great meeting a new friend who gave me loves. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    Rooo Bongo, they were holding sticks in their hands? Did you not spot the sticks?! Roooooo, perhaps they all wanted to play fetch *waggy tail* Good work you got some cuddles through!

    • Bongo

      October 24, 2012 at 11:24 pm

      Alfie, I couldn’t talk them into throwing any of those sticks for me – but I did kind of forget about it when I got the loves.

    Always good to make a new friend!

    • Bongo

      Dianda, new friends are great – and so are old ones. I like all kinds of friends, and especially if they give me loves.

    Did you get to model for them? Everyone should have a painting of Bongo!!!

    • Bongo

      October 31, 2012 at 9:56 pm

      Collies, those artists complained that I wouldn’t sit still long enough for a painting. They just didn’t have a big enough pile of treats.
