Today is Monday Mischief and I was going to tell you a great story about somebody else’s mischief – something I had no part in. But then I had such a great walk yesterday afternoon that I just had to share that instead. That mischief story will have to wait.
Yesterday was Easter, and while I was on my trails I found an Easter egg. I didn’t even know I was going on an Easter egg hunt. I was so excited. Somebody left an Easter egg just for me.
But if that’s all that happened all I would have is an Easter egg hunt story and lots of people had those yesterday. But there was more.
I passed three little girls. Cute little girls. And all three of them gave me loves. One of them even got down from her daddy’s shoulders to give me loves. Woo woo!
What, person? You didn’t take any pictures of those little girls giving me loves. How’s anybody going to believe me then? If I have to wait while you take pictures of all those flowers, then you’d better get your camera out and take pictures of me any time I’m getting loves. Even if those loves are from boys.
I guess I’ll have to look for more loves on my next walk. And make sure my person has her camera out and ready.
But there’s more.
I have a neighbor dog who lives on the other side of my backyard fence. Every time we’re outside together he barks at me. He’s a through the fence kind of friend. I wrote about him here. For a long time we’ve always had a fence between us when we meet. Yesterday, we finally got to meet dog to dog. Moe tried to give me what for like he does through the fence but I gave him what for back and then we were even. Moe backed off while my person talked to his person. They hadn’t met before either.
So now that Moe knows who’s top dog around here, I’ll let him be my friend.
Moe, I’ll be out to meet you at the fence again in a little while.

Moe looks like he could be a good fiend, Bongo!
As for your person, how could she not take pictures of you being loved?!!!!
Oh, well, I’m sure she’ll get many more chances to take photos.

Marina, I guess I don’t have my person trained enough. She takes pictures of all the wrong things. And I’m still waiting for Moe out by the fence. He wasn’t there at all today.

Neighbor dogs are great, once they’ve been put in their place! I wonder if Moe will stop barking at you through the fence now….
Love and licks,

Cupcake, when I met Moe dog to dog he barked at me the exact same way he barks at me through the fence. I think he wants me to think he’s the boss. I’m sure he’ll settle down when he realizes he’s not boss of anything.

Between Moe and the cactus, there’s never a shortage of adventure out on the trail.

Will and Eko, that’s why I love my trails.

Sounds like a fun day. Did you see the Easter bunny or just the egg? Don’t you just lovins from kids!

Benny & Lily, I saw that Easter Bunny sneaking around a few days ago. But I think he left the egg and hid again.

Sounds like a basket load of fun.
(Oh, Molly says to tell you she straightened one of the dogs behind the fence out and now they play parallel chase along the fence….still trying to convince the other side that friends don’t have to bark insanely….Molly says maybe they think she’s the Bunny?)
High paws to ya’ Bongo!

Molly, maybe you could stop by my house and help me straighten Moe out. It would be fun playing with him if he would finally stop barking.

How cool that you got to meet your barking buddy!! Great that you got the top dog stuff all sorted out! 🙂
Your pal Snoopy 🙂
April 1, 2013 at 10:26 pm
Snoopy, it really was cool meeting Moe after having a fence between us for so long.

How great to meet your fence buddy!!! Ginger says make friends with all your neighborhood dogs and create a army and take over your neighborhood!!! Muwahahahah
Did your human let you eat the egg?

Collies, my person wouldn’t let me eat that egg and then I found out that Toby, my neighbor dog, ate it. I think I’m going to leave my person at home and go on walks with Toby from now on.

What no pictures of you getting loves, oh my! I bet your person will make sure to take some next time. Fence friends are great. Riva has one that she like so well she kept jumping the fence to visit with him so now she and the other dogs are confined in another fenced area that has a taller fence, but she can still see her pal 🙂

Misty Shores, I have to peek through holes in the fence to see Moe when he’s there. And that part of the fence is too high for me to jump. Too bad he’s not on the other side of the fence that I can jump.

Oh, nasty prickly cactus. Don’t want prickles in the muzzle!
April 1, 2013 at 11:24 pm
BZ, you really have to watch out for those prickles. I managed to roll that egg away from them.
April 2, 2013 at 12:47 am
Well done, Bongo 🙂
April 2, 2013 at 12:13 pm
Thanks Little Binky. Except I haven’t found Moe on the other side of the fence since then. Do you think he’s avoiding me?
April 2, 2013 at 7:06 am
I didn’t expect that Moe was such a small dog because he barked at you alot while he was in his yard! I thought that he must have been so brave and a big guy! but look at him! He looks a bit scared to face you, Bongo! He obviously seems to realise that he can’t beat you! You’re a boss, Bongo! 🙂
April 2, 2013 at 12:16 pm
Kevin, I think Moe just wants to be a big dog. Even through the fence when I bark back at him he backs off.
April 2, 2013 at 8:25 am
Moe sure is a handsome dog. Not as handsome as you, of course, Bongo.
April 2, 2013 at 12:16 pm
Thanks FleaByte. It’s okay for you to say Moe’s handsome because I’m still bigger than he is.
April 2, 2013 at 10:51 am
Oh, Moe looks really cute! I hope you will be best friends!
April 2, 2013 at 12:19 pm
Kolytyi, I hope Moe and I can be friends too. I’ve just got to train him to stop barking so much. When he accepts the fact that I’m the big dog around here I think he’ll calm down.
