Peanut Butter Jar

10 Dec

Bongo and a Peanut Butter JarI can’t believe it. I’ve been so good because I know Santa is coming soon, but everyone else around here seems to be getting into mischief.

This time it’s a peanut butter jar.

I don’t know what got into that peanut butter jar – well, besides peanut butter that is.

My person left the house and I innocently checked the sink to see if there were any dishes that needed to be cleaned out. I thought I’d help my person out by washing some dishes for her.

I found this peanut butter jar in the sink and it really needed cleaning out. There was still a layer of peanut butter all over the inside of the jar. It was kind of hard standing over the sink to clean it so I took it out and into the next room where there’s a soft carpet and I could really work on cleaning that thing.

I was doing a great job with the cleanup when that jar started pulling its mischief.

You see, that jar kept some of the peanut butter where I couldn’t reach it. I tried everything – chewing on the jar, squashing it, stretching my tongue out really long – but nothing I could do would convince that jar to give up its peanut butter.

My person got mad at me when she came home, but it wasn’t my fault I didn’t get the jar all clean. If that mischievous jar hadn’t kept that peanut butter in a spot where I couldn’t get it, I would have been able to do a really great job.

But somehow I’m always the one that gets blamed.

      Gizmo, I’m so glad you understand. Now I’ve just got to convince my person.

      Benny & Lily, peanut butter is the best. But when I get a big glob of it, it sticks to the roof of my mouth.

    I bet you spent a really long time cleaning that jar too! No fair that your mom was mad! But what’s a dog to do?

    • Bongo

      December 10, 2012 at 10:15 pm

      Kat n Collies, I spent a very long time. I worked really hard at it. Sometimes I think people don’t appreciate a good thing when it’s right in front of them.

    The sink is a virtual GOLDMINE of goodies! It must be fun to be tall enough to reach it. Darn it that I’m so tiny, I can only lick the floor!

    • Bongo

      December 10, 2012 at 10:16 pm

      Cupcake, maybe I could stop by and give you a boost. It is great to be able to reach into the sink when there’s goodies left in it. And the cat food too – when my person forgets to put it on top of the refrigerator when she leaves.

    Me and Nellie think you were unfairly treated. It is well known that anything in the sink or on the kitchen bench is fair game for Us doggys. If, the are silly enough to leave food and other tasty treats there, what are We to do? Of course We must eat them. Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.

    • Bongo

      December 10, 2012 at 10:18 pm

      Nellie and Jasper you are so right. We’ve got to keep the place clean. If our people don’t do it then us dogs have to pick up the load.

    No fair! You did the best you could to help clean. We are proud of you. – Lulu Belle and Sofie Bear

      Thanks Lulu Belle and Sofie Bear. I’m tempted to leave the dirty stuff in the sink next time, but I’m too much of a clean freak.

      • dogdaz

        We have help from the cats – they take it out of the sink and pass it down to Sofie (because she is short). BOL

      • Bongo

        December 11, 2012 at 9:07 pm

        Sofie, you are so lucky. I wouldn’t mind living with a cat if he’d help me out like that.

    Mad? You just saved her some money not having to buy one of those Kong toys. I had one but I get frustrated so I just left mine outside for my buddy Colby to play with…Lola

    • Bongo

      December 10, 2012 at 10:20 pm

      Lola, I’ve got one of those Kong toys somewhere out in the yard too. My person didn’t fill it up often enough. Maybe I should bring it inside and give her a hint.

      • dianeskitchentable

        December 11, 2012 at 1:59 pm

        Make sure she replaced that jar of peanut butter. My Kong is actually stuck way up high in a tree…go figure.

    Oh you poor baby! Always being blamed when you’re the innocent party. Life just isn’t fair.

    • Bongo

      FleaByte, I’m so glad you understand. I was beginning to feel really dejected.

    Hey, at least you tried to do your part in the cleaning!

    • Bongo

      December 10, 2012 at 10:21 pm

      Jen, I tried really hard. I just wish my person would appreciate what I do for her.

    December 10, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    I’ll do anything for peanut butter. It’s my favorite!

    • Bongo

      December 10, 2012 at 10:22 pm

      Lola, peanut butter is the best. Next time maybe you can come over and help me. We’ll lick that peanut butter jar yet.

    You need to tell you mum to get jars with bigger openings, tell her it would be easier for her to pour thing into it ; )

    • Bongo

      December 10, 2012 at 10:23 pm

      Pablo, good idea. We need a great big peanut butter jar – with lots of peanut butter left inside for me.

    December 10, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    Peanut butter is yummy but the jars are a problem.

    • Bongo

      December 10, 2012 at 10:24 pm

      Patricia, it’s much better when my person gives me some on a cracker. Those jars are really pesky.

    I’ll bet there are some dog treat recipes on the big ole interweb that your mum could whip up for you in a flash. Ones that contain: PEANUT BUTTER!

    • Bongo

      December 10, 2012 at 10:29 pm

      Cathy, I’m going to put my person on that. I’ve been trying to get her to make me some treats for Christmas since she won’t share any of the people cookies she makes. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    I just don’t know why you always get in trouble for trying to help out Bongo!

    • Bongo

      December 10, 2012 at 10:30 pm

      Bassetmomma, I can’t figure it out either. My person is so unfair sometimes.

    That’s so not fair buddy!! I hate it when you get blamed for Mischief and it wasn’t even you!! 🙂 Next time ask for a spoon!! 🙂

    Wags to all

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Bongo

      December 10, 2012 at 10:30 pm

      Snoopy, that’s a great idea. If the spoon doesn’t work for getting the peanut butter out of the jar I could just chew on it.

    Those darn peanut butter jars can cause so much mischief!

    • Bongo

      December 10, 2012 at 10:32 pm

      Brown Newfies, have you been having problems with those peanut butter jars too? I think the pesky one at my house might have some relatives.

    Oh…. I’m sure she’ll thank you later for the good job you did cleaning it up!!!
    I doubt whether she’ll be able to clean it any better!!!!!!

    • Bongo

      December 11, 2012 at 9:05 pm

      Marina, she wasted the rest of that peanut butter by washing it down the drain. Do you believe it!?

    now that is really sad! When a dog does his best for the person he loves, like cleaning the dishes etc..he should be rewarded…not scolded! poor Bongo , you lead such a hard life….can your person be reported for dog abuse? Did she not get a spoon and get the rest out of the jar for mean can you get? If I were you I’d take it up with the Dog Federation

    • Bongo

      December 11, 2012 at 9:06 pm

      Patreciau, I’m heading to the Dog Federation right now. Not only did my person not get a spoon and get the rest of the peanut butter for me – she washed all that peanut butter down the drain.

    December 11, 2012 at 7:06 am

    Mmmm…peanut butter…*drools* I really understand you Bongo because sometimes I clean my humans dishes and it becomes much shinier than they wash the dishes on their own!!!
    *wiping mouth with a paw* Hee hee…. 🙂

    • Bongo

      December 11, 2012 at 9:08 pm

      Kevin, our people are so lucky that we do such good things for them. It’s too bad they don’t appreciate it more.

  20. themisadventuresofmisaki

    It was definitely the jar’s fault!

    • Bongo

      December 11, 2012 at 9:08 pm

      Misaki, that jar was totally up to no good.

    That doesn’t sound very fair to me! I am suking on your behalf!

    • Bongo

      December 11, 2012 at 9:09 pm

      Thanks Dalton. It was totally unfair.

      Bassa, do you have any ideas on how to grow your tongue longer? Any tongue exercises maybe?

    December 12, 2012 at 10:07 am

    Boy can I sympathize Bongo. I got blamed for everything too, and one day my ex-mother-in-law said forget about our agreement and get out.; so now I’m out. Wish she’d done it sooner!

    • Bongo

      December 12, 2012 at 11:16 am

      Sandra, I’m sure glad getting out worked for you. I sure hope my person doesn’t kick me out though. I don’t know where I’d find another pesky peanut butter jar.

  24. onebluedog

    December 12, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    It looks to me like the peanut butter got out of the jar, not into it 😉

    I am sorry you got into trouble though, Bongo 😦 So much for trying to be helpful!

    • Bongo

      December 12, 2012 at 10:00 pm

      Remy, it seems like I can’t ever win. I try to be helpful, but …

    • Bongo

      December 12, 2012 at 10:03 pm

      Remy, it seems like I just can’t win. I try to be helpful and look what I get.

    Ginger says next time look innocent and point at scratchy……

    • Bongo

      December 14, 2012 at 10:44 pm

      Ginger, Scratchy’s always getting into mischief but somehow I always get the blame. That’s okay though. Santa knows who’s naughty and nice.

    Yikes, Bongo. I mean, could you still talk after cleaning the peanut butter jar… lol 😀

    • Bongo

      December 17, 2012 at 5:59 pm

      Angels Whisper, sometimes my person gives me some peanut butter on a cracker. I can hardly open my mouth when I’m eating that.
