Meet the Neighbor

27 Nov

TobyFinally! I finally got to meet him. My new neighbor Toby.

We were heading back from our walk – my person and I, that is. And we saw one of Toby’s people out in his yard. So of course I had to go over and say hi.

And when Toby’s other person saw me there she told Toby to come out and meet me.






Bongo and Toby

We sniffed here…

and we sniffed there.

Hey person, you left out some of those sniffing pictures. What’s the deal? Where are they?

Bongo sniffing a shoe

Not the one where I’m sniffing the shoe!

People! Sometimes they just don’t get it.

Anyway, remember that walk I took around the block the other day? Well, this time I got to take a walk around the block with Toby.

And now I have a new neighbor – and a new friend.

Hey person, can we go for a walk with Toby again tomorrow?

    That’s so sweet Bongo! Toby seems very nice and serious! It looks as though you’ve caught some of that “serious” look too [last picture]!

      Marina, I had to be serious for awhile so Toby would feel at home. He’s still not quite comfortable in his new surroundings. My trails scare him because he’s never been in the woods before, so that’s why we went for a walk on the street.

        I never get tired of saying what a good being you are, Bongo dear! mouah!

    Toby looks lovely and the two of you look fabulous together. Hope you get to do lots of walks with your new neighbour/friend.

      Susan, I hope I get to do lots of walks with Toby too. We got along right from the first, which I don’t always do with other dogs.

    It is nice to make a new friend. Love Nellie and Jasper

      Nellie and Jasper, friends are the best. Both the ones I can hang out with in my neighborhood, and also friends like you in the blogosphere.

    Toby does look a little insecure – glad you, the expert trail guide, is there to convince him it’s not only OK, but a terrific place. It’s always hard to be in a new place – glad you were able to welcome Toby to the neighborhood

    • Bongo

      November 27, 2012 at 10:33 pm

      Karen, I think Toby and I are going to be great friends. He’s never been in the woods before and his person says he’s afraid of my trails. I’ll have to introduce him gently.

      Benny & Lily, Toby is a cutie, isn’t he? I think he and I are going to be great friends.

    Bongo, this is the first time, no the second time I have been here and again I am thrilled to see your blog. That looked like some good sniffling goin on between you and Toby. Too bad not all the pictures were posted. I am glad you have a new neighbor. Have fun on your walks.

    • Bongo

      November 27, 2012 at 10:37 pm

      Thanks KidLitReviews. I’m glad you enjoy my blog. Toby and I got along really well, and that’s saying a lot because I don’t always like other dogs the first time I meet them. I’m not sure about my person though. She’ll post pictures of things like flowers on my blog, but she won’t put all the sniffing pictures up. I don’t think she even took those pictures.

    Toby looks like he needs a friend to help him get used to the new digs. You are a good neighbor to have.

    • Bongo

      November 27, 2012 at 10:38 pm

      Patricia, I think Toby and I are going to be great friends.

      Chancy and Mumsy, it seemed like forever but I finally did get to meet Toby. I hope we get to go on a walk together again soon. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

      Alex and Penny, it’s great when you have good neighbors. I think Toby and I will turn out to be really good friends.

    That looks like you had so much fun! I want to go for a walk with you guys!

    • Bongo

      November 27, 2012 at 10:41 pm

      Viciously Sweet, come on over. Toby’s still afraid to go on my trails, but you can go there with me and then we can walk around the block with Toby too.

      Will and Eko, I always like to go say hi to Toby’s people so now it will be even more fun since I can hang out with Toby too.

    I hope you enjoy your new friend Bongo. He’s handsome, but not as handsome as you of course.

    • Bongo

      November 27, 2012 at 10:43 pm

      Thanks Bosun Dawg. I think Toby is handsome in a different way than me. I just hope we don’t end up competing for the same cute girls.

    Together walks are the best, Bongo 🙂

      Angels Whisper, I don’t get to go on walks with other dogs very often, but it sure was fun.

    tell sniff the rear to make sure that each dog has the correct tail! Oh I am so happy that you have met Toby. He looks really splendid and will be a good friend for you to go walkies with. You can show him your trail with all the strange things on it

    • Bongo

      November 28, 2012 at 8:01 pm

      Patreciau, my person doesn’t get that tail sniffing thing. I can’t wait to take Toby for a walk on my trails, but his person says he still has some adjusting to his new surroundings first.

    Nice to see you with your new buddy Bongo, I can see you will have lots of fun together.

      Mary, I’m so excited to have a new buddy living so close to me.

    Wow!!! Toby looks a wonderful and beautiful doggie! I’m glad to hear that you and Toby finally could meet and got along! I know you had to be careful to be close at first, but surly you will become lovely friends each other! 🙂

    • Bongo

      November 28, 2012 at 8:02 pm

      Kevin, it’s really great to have a new friend that lives close to me. He’s still adjusting to his new surroundings, but I think we’ll have lots of fun together once he’s adjusted.

      Misaki, I can’t wait till I get to hang out with Toby again.

    I am so pleased, I can just see you both struting round the hood, the ladies won’t stand a chance – you will be fighting them off with a big stick!

    • Bongo

      November 28, 2012 at 8:04 pm

      Dalton, I hope the ladies are on their way. We could have great fun getting loves and lots of playing time.

    Well my goodness! Toby is totally handsome (no offense Bongo, you’re an incredibly handsome dude, but I have a soft spot in my heart for guys who look like me). I’ll bet you’ll love having Toby for a friend – just be careful of the Berner Bump…sometimes we can’t help it – it’s in the DNA…Lola

    • Bongo

      November 28, 2012 at 8:06 pm

      Lola, I’ll keep an eye out for that bump thing. I do have to agree that even though Toby doesn’t have the same kind of good looks as me, he is pretty handsome.

    November 28, 2012 at 11:41 am

    Yay! I am so excited that you finally got to meet Toby! I hope you guys will get to go for walks and play all the time now 😀

    • Bongo

      November 28, 2012 at 8:12 pm

      Remy, It was great fun meeting Toby. I tried to drag my person over to his house today but she wouldn’t go for it. I might have to sneak on over there by myself.

    Hey Bongo,

    Toby looks cool, I’m so happy you’ve got your very own neighbor buddy Doggie, just like my Cosmo!! You’re gonna have SO much fun!! 🙂

    Big wags,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Bongo

      November 28, 2012 at 8:16 pm

      Snoopy, I was kind of jealous of you and Cosmo having such a great time together, but now I can have just as much fun with Toby.

    Looks like friend material, yes? 😉

    • Bongo

      November 28, 2012 at 8:18 pm

      Dianda, Toby is definitely friend material.
