Make it Stop

28 Dec

Bongo unhappy with the falling snowToday seemed like an ordinary day as my person and I headed out for our walk. Well, it was cloudy and kind of chilly, but I can put up with that. Anything for a walk.

But as soon as we got out to the street I could see it coming. Have you ever watched a storm about ready to attack you? It’s like a big cloud coming toward you –ready to engulf you.

And then it did.

Snow and wind coming right in my face. And it wasn’t that light, fluffy kind of snow. This was that hard little corny kind. I didn’t like it one little bit. I don’t know what my person was thinking. She kept heading up the trail.

Bongo balking while the snow is falling

I had to put my foot down. I came to a halt.

Bongo giving the evil eye

My person still didn’t get it. I gave her the evil eye.

Finally she got the message and we headed toward home. But by then the wind and snow were bad in both directions.

Bongo looking for another route

I started looking around to see if that snow was everywhere. Maybe it was only falling on my trail.

There must be another way.

Bongo not wanting to go

I think my person should have followed me off the trail, but she made me stay on it. And it wasn’t the right way at all. By now those snowflakes were turning into monsters. More like hail if you ask me.

Bongo with snow on his back and a sad look

I finally had to try the sad look. It hasn’t worked before, but there’s got to be a first time. I’m sure my person could stop this storm if she wanted to.


I knew it. My person could stop the storm. As soon as we got back in the house that snow stopped coming down.

Now I just have to figure out why my person was picking on me.

      Richard, I did have to make my point. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Oh my! Looks like an ordeal! I bet it was that look that worked with your person… that look could convince ANYONE!!!
    At least you’re nice and warm back home now!

      Marina, I’m not sure if it was the look or the fact that I refused to go any further.

    Oh, Bongo! That Evil Eye would have made me run home 😉

    May your New Year be overflowing with God’s best for you and your person!

      Thanks Mom. I hope you and your family have an awesome 2013.

    Bongo, your stink eye is the best! You don’t look very impressed with your walk at all. Naughty hail-snow! I love that you saw Ghost Dog at Christmas. I think you should definitely be Detective Dog on your next sighting. I’m intrigued.

    • Bongo

      December 28, 2012 at 3:06 pm

      Bumpy Road, I think I’ll for sure see where Ghost Dog disappears to the next time.

    Bongo! That was the skunkiest skunk-eye I ever saw. Between that and the sad-face, message delivered!! You are a great communicator!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, I do my best. If I bark I might get yelled at, but the look says all.

      Rumpy, you know those cats too well. I think I’m gonna throw Scratchy out in the snow.

      Benny & Lily, my person doesn’t get it sometimes. Snow is fun to walk in once it’s on the ground – but not when it’s attacking you from the air.

    Attack snow is the worst. Hurts when it slaps you up the side of the head. Glad your person finally got some sense and went home.

    • Bongo

      December 28, 2012 at 11:19 pm

      Patricia, my person had a big hood on her jacket that protected her face and everything. I think she should have shared it with me.

    I don’t know that your person was picking on you as much as the snow was! 😉

    • Bongo

      December 29, 2012 at 11:16 am

      Emily, I hope that snow doesn’t pick on me any more. I’ll take the soft, fluffy kind instead.

    How curious that snowflakes are! We don’t have those snowflakes here….Do they hit you? I love playing with snow in winter but I’m not sure if I like those snowflakes….like you Bongo, I might be very annoyed by them!

    • Bongo

      December 29, 2012 at 11:19 am

      Kevin, when the snowflakes are kind of little and hard and the wind blows they can slam right into your face and sting. They’re kind of somewhere between snow and hail. I like it better when we get the soft, fluffy kind of snowflakes.

    Iz feelin’ yur pain bongo…Iz rainin’ here today and silly hoomin keeps tryin’ to get me to go outside…never happen pal…Glad the sad luk werked and yur mom finally came to her senses Happy Saturday pal!

    • Bongo

      December 29, 2012 at 11:20 am

      Gizmo, I don’t mind going for a walk in the rain – but going out to do my business – that’s another thing altogether. I think our people should make indoor bathrooms for dogs.

    Hey Bongo, Wow, you have had one exciting week! So many great Christmas gifts, seeing you pal (?) Ghost Dog and being attacked by a crazy snowstorm! Hope you have many wonderful adventures in 2013! Happy Saturday.

    • Bongo

      December 29, 2012 at 11:21 am

      Thanks Loy. It was a pretty good week – and I’m looking forward to all the adventures I know I’ll be having next year.

    Hi Bongo. I found you on the Saturday Blog Hop! I LOVE your “evil eye” look! It’s one of the best I have ever seen. I don’t know what hard, corny snow feels like but it sure doesn’t look fun. Have a great weekend!

    • Bongo

      December 29, 2012 at 11:29 am

      Thanks for hopping by Oz. That hard, corny snow can really sting when the wind blows it in your face. I’m glad you like my look. It was necessary at the time.

    The magic of a look…Bongo, you sure have some extra-special powers!

    • Bongo

      December 29, 2012 at 11:29 am

      Thanks Sage. Sometimes it’s the best way to communicate with my person.

    Wow, its looks like stuff we get here! That evil eye.. Ginger loved it!!! She is practicing it on dad now…. muwahahahahah

    • Bongo

      December 29, 2012 at 11:34 am

      Ginger, I’m glad I could finally teach you something since I learn all kinds of mischief tricks from you.

    Oh, poor Bongo, it is terrible when the icy wind blows into your face in whichever direction you turn… Sadly, humans have extremely low reaction times and their IQ cannot be compared to that of a dog!

    • Bongo

      December 29, 2012 at 11:41 am

      Kolytyi, I guess I’ll have to forgive my person for being so slow in letting me go back in the house.

    That was one serious evil eye look, Bongo. But it does look like shivering weather – so appropriate for sure. Maybe get your person one of those plastic hamster bubbles when she thinks she must go out in this stuff?

    • Bongo

      December 30, 2012 at 7:56 pm

      Karen, can I chase the hamster?

      • philosophermouseofthehedge

        December 31, 2012 at 9:41 am

        Sure. Doesn’t everyone? Happy New year to all paws and people you watch over

        Happy New Year to you and all yours too Karen.

    Important that your people know who is charge of the walk. We all know that. They need to know too.

    • Bongo

      December 31, 2012 at 10:58 pm

      Pippa, sometimes our people need a little reminding.

    You can come live with me pal, if your person keeps picking on you!

    • Bongo

      December 31, 2012 at 10:59 pm

      Dalton, I’m on my way. Today she left me for almost all day. She doesn’t know it though, but I got to go for a walk with my friend Toby while she was gone.

      • Dalton

        January 2, 2013 at 1:43 am

        That sounds like so much fun, your very lucky!

      • Bongo

        January 2, 2013 at 12:17 pm

        Dalton, it’s really cool to have a neighbor dog that I’m friends with – and his people too.

    Oh Bongo you look so forlorn. Come on up to Mass & play in my nice white fluffy stuff – I could lay out on it all day!

    • Bongo

      December 31, 2012 at 11:03 pm

      Lola, that sounds like fun. I’m on my way. We did actually get about an inch on the ground last night, but most of it’s gone again now.

      • dianeskitchentable

        January 1, 2013 at 9:18 am

        We’ve got a lot more than that but the wind is really cold. I LOVE it…Diane, well, not so much.

    Wow, Bongo, do you look… wet. It looks like the weather came especially for you 😦

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2013 at 7:42 pm

      Angels Whisper, I don’t mind wet – but that wind blowing stuff in my face is no good at all.
