Today was a really good day. It was warm and sunny and I was lounging around in the sunny spot when I heard someone coming to the door.
I recognized the sound. Sometimes I hear her coming to the door when my person’s not home. All I can do is peak out the window (don’t tell my person because I have to get up on the couch to do that – but it’s not my fault it’s in the way) and maybe bark a time or two. Then when my person comes home she finds a package sitting at the door.
But this time my person was home and she opened the door when my friend came up to it. Well, guess what. It seems my person and this package person know each other. They used to hang out together at this place called “work.”
And this package person (my person says she’s our mail carrier) is really cool because she likes to give me loves. Loves and packages.
I wonder what’s in that package she brought me. Maybe treats – or a new squeaky toy.
What, person? What do you mean that package isn’t for me? What do you mean it’s something you ordered for my younger person?
Then I think you’d better get on your computer right now and order me some packages. But make sure the delivery is spread out so I get a new one every day. And make sure you’re home when they come so I get my loves too.
Woo woo! Packages and loves every single day. What more could any dog want?

Me, too! Every time the package person comes, I bark at him and he leaves. I’m very good at my job!
December 8, 2012 at 10:44 am
Lola, sometimes it’s good to give those package people a good barking. Especially when the package they’re bringing is not for us.
December 8, 2012 at 10:36 am
I’m waiting for the package person too. They are delivering my boots for xmas, could you please tell them to hurry 🙂
December 8, 2012 at 10:44 am
Jaz, I’ll nudge that package person along – as soon as I finish getting all my loves.
December 8, 2012 at 10:47 am
Ok Thanks Bongo 🙂
December 8, 2012 at 10:44 am
I always like it when the package person comes. This year the package person delivered them to England so when I go there I shall find lots of packages.
December 8, 2012 at 10:46 am
Patreciau, if I went to England would I find packages too? Are you going to get loves with your packages?

I definitely think you’d better get your own package on order. In the mean time, extra loves are always a great thing.
December 8, 2012 at 11:34 am
Susan, that’s a great idea. I’ll order my own packages. Now where did my person leave her credit card?
December 8, 2012 at 11:42 am
Great idea!!!! Packages AND loves or packages with loves …here’s a package with lots of loves from me! [L] 🙂
December 8, 2012 at 1:00 pm
Thanks Marina. I love getting packages of loves from you.
December 8, 2012 at 12:15 pm
I Love your Idea Bongo….Matter of fact, I just started as a new Mail Carrier, so maybe one of these days I would bring you your packages…that way I could give you all kinds of Loves…;-)

Alex and Penny, that would be so cool – to get packages and loves from you. I would give lots of loves back too.
December 8, 2012 at 12:40 pm
I’ve got a good package person (his name’s Mr. FedEx & he gives me treats) and a mean package person (Mr. UPS & he grouchy). Diane doesn’t like that guy either because he leaves the packages down by the garage & I forget my numbers but there may have been some times that I ripped the packages open. One time he put a package behind the garage door & Diane ran over it — she was kinda mad that time.
December 8, 2012 at 1:08 pm
Lola, Mr. FedEx sure sounds better that Mr. UPS. That’s funny though. I have some package people with those same names. I think they’re nice but I don’t get to meet them. They just drop my packages at the front door and run.
December 8, 2012 at 1:31 pm
Do you jump up & scratch at the door when they come? That kinda makes Diane crazy too. Maybe our Mr’s are the same – wouldn’t that be something because then I could just tell them “bring this to Bongo” & you’d get it cause they know you. I guess it’s not the best idea to chew packages until your person empties the box & actually gives it to you. I didn’t care at all about the purse that ended up on the back lawn, but that box was sure tasty.
December 8, 2012 at 2:59 pm
Lola, that would be so cool if our package people were the same – except for maybe your Mr. UPS. We could send packages back and forth. My person always puts packages that have good smells inside out of my reach – after I ate some maltballs from under the Christmas tree one year – I only got caught because I forgot to finish off the bag. I don’t usually care about boxes – only tasty stuff inside them.

Oh Bongo…never leave evidence!
December 8, 2012 at 3:35 pm
Packages and loves. That’s all a dog really needs. My package man makes me go mental. He does packages, but no loves. I think he’s afraid of me because I always yell at him. But he doesn’t know, if he ever got close enough I would kiss him.
Love and licks,
December 8, 2012 at 10:35 pm
Cupcake, my person says those package people have to be careful because there’s crazy dogs out there. I’m just lucky that she knows my package person so my package person knows I’m safe to give loves to.
December 8, 2012 at 6:41 pm
I love that photo, Bongo!! I can just feel the loves right through my screen!
December 8, 2012 at 10:36 pm
Thanks Laura. They really were great loves. I can’t wait for the next package to arrive.

We have been waiting for packages too! Some have come, but none of them are for us. Mom promised that she ordered something for us…and our Barkbox should arrive in a week or two…
Guess what? My girl ran into a dig at work, and he looks a lot like you!!! His picture is on our blog, you should stop by and take a look!
December 8, 2012 at 10:43 pm
Collies, I stopped by and that dog really does look like me. I didn’t know I had a twin. I hope your packages come soon. I’m still waiting for mine, but since we have a big pet store near our house now my person says the package person might not bring any packages for me.
December 9, 2012 at 2:26 am
You look like you are enjoying those loves Bongo!
December 9, 2012 at 12:57 pm
Bumpy Road, they’re almost as good as little girl loves from Bubba.
December 9, 2012 at 3:12 pm
Bongo, now she says ‘cuggle’ as she throws her arms around me or Bella or Beary. I’m sure she’d do the same if she saw you. If you close your eyes you can probably imagine it!
December 9, 2012 at 4:18 pm
I’m closing my eyes. Cuggles are good.
December 9, 2012 at 7:24 am
I wish I could have a package person and love….to be honest, we have a package man here but he hasn’t given any love to me….and most of the packages are for humans…*sniff sniff*
Have a lovely Sunday Bongo! 🙂
December 9, 2012 at 12:59 pm
Thanks Kevin. Most of the packages that come here are for my people too. My person uses the excuse that we now have a great big pet store near our house. I think I’m just lucky with the loves though since my person knows the package person.

we are trying so hard to scream after he drops the package and not before

Benny & Lily, sometimes it’s hard to keep quiet when somebody comes to your door carrying packages.

It sounds like you’ve got a system for getting packages and loves now… on to the packaging ordering! You’re lucky though our package people don’t really give Boomer and Dottie much attention.
December 9, 2012 at 1:03 pm
Emily, I guess I have a pretty special package person. I’d better get to work ordering more packages.
December 9, 2012 at 11:09 pm
We like our package person too. He loves dogs and gives us lots of loves and the last package was treats for us!! We hope the next package is lots of treats for you Bongo 🙂
December 10, 2012 at 10:06 pm
Lexie and Mica, you are so lucky. A package of treats and you got loves. I hope I get treats in the next package too.
December 14, 2012 at 8:12 am
the collies love ambushing the mail person… she always laughs and waves as the house shakes. Crazy collies! Ginger says ask the mailperson for a treat…. 🙂
December 14, 2012 at 10:49 pm
Ginger, I’ll for sure have to ask my mail person for a treat because I think my person is getting ready to give her some treats for Christmas. It’s sure a good thing that your mail person likes collies.
December 17, 2012 at 2:04 pm
Bongo, it’s almost packages time, that means a lot of packages and loves 🙂
December 17, 2012 at 5:56 pm
Angels Whisper, I’m so excited. My person says packages should be coming soon from my cousin dogs. Hopefully with lots of dog treats in them. She says I also have to save some cookies for my package person. That part might be hard to do – I seem to eat any food I come in contact with.
