Nurse Bongo

15 Nov

Bongo Kissing his Person's AnkleI was so bummed yesterday. My person had twisted her ankle the day before and she was limping, and moaning, and saying it hurt really bad.

So yesterday morning she said I wasn’t going to get my walk.

What do you mean I’m not getting my walk? I always get my walk.

Not only that, but my person said I had to take care of her.

Well, I take care of her by barking if a stranger comes into the yard, or by keeping Scratchy out of her room so he won’t bother her. But what does she mean – take care of her? Do I have to get a new hat now – a Nurse Dog hat?

I’ve never been Nurse Dog before, but I’ll do anything to get my walk. So I kissed my person’s ankle, and I guess I did a good job being Nurse Dog because my person felt so good she got up and left me – alone. Well, alone with Scratchy. She got in her car and left.

See if I ever put on a Nurse Dog hat again.

But then my person came back and said she felt good enough to take me for a walk. Woo woo!

I’m not sure why, but my person walked kind of slow. I didn’t mind though because it gave me extra time to get some good sniffs in.

But now I’m thinking, if my Nurse Dog skills got my person better that fast, maybe what I need isn’t a Nurse Dog hat at all. It’s something else.

What about Miracle Healer Dog hat? Come on over to my house. I’ll heal you pronto.

Wait a minute. I don’t need a hat for that at all. But I could do with a big tent in the yard.

    Oh, Bongo!!!! You are such a kind dog! I bet if you keep doing that nursing, your person will be totally healed in no time! By the way, it would be a good idea to take it easy on her -no pulling! You tell her from me to get well soon!

      Marina, it was really hard not to pull today when I saw two pesky squirrels chasing each other up a tree. I really wanted to go up that tree after them.

    I have a nurse hat (and dress), but they clearly are not working. Mom has a sore knee, and although I jump on it and crash into it and fall asleep on it, every day, it’s not better yet. My walks are short AND slow these days. I hope when she sees the doctor next week, he does better than I have done. Otherwise, she’ll be first in line at your healing tent!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, tell your mom to put peanut butter on her knee and have you lick it off for her. I guarantee her knee will be better in no time. My person says she’s praying that your mom’s knee is all better soon. By the way, I might want to borrow that nurse hat – but you can keep the dress.

        Good plan, B. Peanut butter is a medicine she hasn’t tried, and I REALLY hope she does. Thanks for the prayers. xoxo

    Wow Bongo, you’ll have people queuing up outside your tent at this rate. Good job!

    • Bongo

      November 15, 2012 at 4:51 pm

      Misaki, I might have to move my tent to a bigger place. And I’ll need lots of treats to keep me going.

      Thanks Kat and Collies. I guess my kisses have that special touch.

      Thanks Alex and Penny. My person says she was amazed that I was able to heal her so quickly.

    Tied with laughter, dogs are the best medicine! Keep up the good work.

      Thanks Will and Eko. People would be a lot worse off without us dogs.

    Twisted ankles can hurt really bad. 😦 I hope your person feels better soon!

    • Bongo

      November 15, 2012 at 4:56 pm

      Thanks Dianda. My person says this healed much faster than times that she’s twisted her knee. That’s probably because she didn’t have me around then. She says it’s still a little stiff when she walks, but only a little.

      • Dianda

        November 16, 2012 at 7:14 am

        I guess you need to lick her ankle more. 😉

    Big, slurpy kisses Bongo – I broke Diane’s ankle one time (I really didn’t mean it, just excited dog stuff you know) & she had crutches. Well, I love sticks…all kinds of sticks & it was even more fun grabbing Diane’s ‘sticks’ when she tried to use them. I’m glad your person doesn’t need sticks because people get mad when you try to take them…Lola

    • Bongo

      November 15, 2012 at 4:58 pm

      Lola, why would Diane get mad when you grabbed her sticks? All sticks are for dogs to fetch, aren’t they? I’m kind of disappointed my person didn’t get any sticks, but at least I have my Frisbee.

    Hey Bongo, Jet here.

    Please send your person Jetty kisses and JJ hugs to feel better super quick.

    • Bongo

      November 15, 2012 at 5:00 pm

      Hey Jet, my person says thanks to you and JJ. She’s almost better now. She says it feels a little stiff when she walks – but it’s not bad at all.

        Most welcome Miss Person. May we also recommend ice? Not direct to the skin, 20 min on, 20 min off for a bit. 🙂

    BWAHAHAHAHA! I live in Tulsa, so the thought of the big tent is hilarious! Hugs to mama!

    • Bongo

      November 15, 2012 at 9:29 pm

      FleaByte, we don’t have many of those big tents around here. I might have to come visit you for awhile.

    Sorry to hear about your person’s bad ankle but relieved to hear that she had recovered enough to go walking with you.

    • Bongo

      November 15, 2012 at 10:34 pm

      Bassa, my person says she was amazed that her ankle started getting better as quickly as it did. I guess she underestimates my miraculous healing powers.

    it is rumoured that dogs and cats have antibacterial tongues and are able to heal wounds. That sounds reasonable as when a dog has an injury it always licks it and then it heals…so there could be some truth in this idea…and you my wonderful Bongo are now The Great Healer

      Thanks Patriceau. Does that mean I have healing slobber?

    Well done you, I hope you got extra treats?!

    • Bongo

      November 16, 2012 at 10:51 am

      Dalton, I did get extra treats. Now I need another nurse job.

    Wow! Miracle Healer Dog!!! I’m sure everybody and everypaw want to meet you! We’ll give you our loves in return! *whispers* Do we need an appointment in advance? 🙂

    • Bongo

      November 16, 2012 at 10:53 am

      Kevin, I’m operating a walk-in service. No appointment necessary. And if there’s a line when you come – you get to move to the front of the line.

      Mollie and Alfie, my person says she’s going to keep me around in case she gets hurt again.

    Yes, a big tent and a lot of followers…

    • Bongo

      November 16, 2012 at 10:57 am

      Ellen, I’ll get lots of loves then since that’s what I charge for my healings.

    A magic wand? (although your wagging tail already does a pretty good job of cheering things up)

    • Bongo

      November 16, 2012 at 10:59 am

      Karen, if my kisses don’t work my wagging tail will.

    Sweet Bongo it seems you are an excellent nurse. We are happy for you that you got to go for a walk. We hope your person’s ankle is all well very soon. Keep taking good care of her, okay? Hugs and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      November 18, 2012 at 9:17 pm

      Thanks Chancy and Mumsy. My person’s ankle is almost better except sometimes she complains if she steps funny on a rock on my trails. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    You must have magical powers Bongo; how lucky your person is to have you! I hope you get a really cool tent set up right away!

    • Bongo

      November 18, 2012 at 9:27 pm

      Remy, I think I’m going to have to use my magical powers to get that tent.

    Great job Bongo!!! Ginger is in awe!

    • Bongo

      November 27, 2012 at 11:51 am

      Ginger, I do my best. But my person put peanut butter on her ankle so I’m not sure if it was me or the peanut butter that made her better.
