Pet Owner’s Day

18 Apr

Bongo SleepingFinally, my person came and brought me home from the dog hotel. But I think she had an ulterior motive when she got me.

You see, today is Pet Owner’s Day. I think my person came and got me because she thought I would treat her special today. I bet if it wasn’t Pet Owner’s Day my person would have let me just sit in the dog hotel. Who knows when she would have come to let me out.

My person probably thinks I’m going to get her something special for Pet Owner’s Day. She probably thinks I’m going to get her a special treat – like chocolate or something. And she probably thinks I’m going to do special things for her – like take her on an extra long walk or something.

Well, I’ve got a surprise for her. Because I found a new friend at the dog hotel and she played with me – a lot.

I had great fun with my new friend, but now I’m totally worn out.

So that extra long walk isn’t coming – and I need that chocolate more than my person does.

So my person is out of luck this Pet Owner’s Day. Unless, that is, she can get Scratchy to do something special for her.

I’m going to take a nap.

    Poor thing!!! Maybe your person will wake you up with some chocolate treat. Something tells me you are going to dream about it anyway!!!
    Welcome home, Bongo!

      Thanks Marina. I’ve got chocolates swirling around my head, but my person says dogs aren’t allowed to eat chocolate. Sometimes she spoils all the fun.

        What about those special chocolate treats for doggies?!!!!

      • Bongo

        April 18, 2013 at 4:21 pm

        Marina, I don’t think my person knows about those. I’ll have to make sure to tell her.

        I think they’re called choc drops!!

        Marina, I’m sending my person out right now to look for those.

    Bongo, a gentle nose bump from a grateful dog is a treat, too!

      Karen, I guess I can give my person lots of nose bumps. Especially when I want to go outside.

    Thank goodness you’re home, B. After vacation, a nap is definitely in order.

    Love and licks,

      Thanks Cupcake. You sure said it about that nap thing. It feels really good.

    AAWW Bongo, you must tell me what a pet hotel is. I’ve never seen the insides of one. That won’t take me… a mere pig. SAD EYES – whimper oink. XOXO – Bacon

      April 18, 2013 at 4:18 pm

      Bacon, you’re lucky you can’t go to the pet hotel. They’re not as good as staying home – but I did have fun this time with my new friend who played with me.

        Cool to know I’m not missing anything. At least I have plenty of halls to run up and down here. XOXO – Bacon

    Ginger Cheers!!! I am not celebrating either Bongo…. the old guy can take a long walk off a short pier….. but he had better be back by supper time…

    • Bongo

      April 18, 2013 at 4:20 pm

      Ginger, since the world revolves around us dogs I can’t figure out why we would ever celebrate Pet Owner’s Day. And you’re right – they’d better not miss our dinner.

    Admit it Bongo, you really enjoyed yourself at the Hotel and your new friends. A win for both of you. Have a great nap

      I can’t tell my person I had a good time. She might go away more often.

    Is that an admission that you won’t mind a trip back to prison every once in a while! Glad you’re sprung, hope you got some nice R&R at home.

    • Bongo

      April 18, 2013 at 4:24 pm

      Will and Eko, I would like to go back and visit my new friend every once in awhile. Maybe only for a day or two though.


    April 18, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    Welcome home Bongo!!! We missed you! Tell Mom YOU are her present 😉 !

    • Bongo

      April 18, 2013 at 4:24 pm

      Thanks Max. And you’re right about me being the present. I don’t know how my person could want anything else.

      Alex, Trish, and Penny, my person went to Seattle and I think she almost forgot to come back. Except she said there was so much rain there that she had to come back for the sunshine.

        well its good to have you back Bongo, I hope your human did not get too water logged from all that rain…LOL.
        We are looking forward to more exciting adventures with you…Woof Woof, from Penny!

        Thanks Penny. My person says she was looking forward to getting warmed up in the Arizona sun when she got back, but it snowed instead on her first day back here.

    Welcome back Bongo! Hmmm…Pet Owner’s Day….I haven’t doen anything for my mom……have to think of it… *whispers* How was the Dog Hotel? Oh! You’re lucky boy to find a friend there! 🙂

    • Bongo

      April 19, 2013 at 11:07 am

      Thanks Kevin. It was fun having a new friend at the dog hotel, but it sure is good to be back home again.

    Your mama’s just lucky to have you, Bongo. And you’re lucky to be home with her. 🙂

    • Bongo

      April 19, 2013 at 11:08 am

      FleaByte, I agree. How could my person have a better gift than me.

    Glad you’re back, Bongo. You deserve to take a good nap before you eat your chocolate 😉

    I’m sure that your person wanted only one present for Pet Owner Day: YOU! This is why she picked you up in the dog hotel. But I think you gave her a really fantastic present with that friendship!

    • Bongo

      April 21, 2013 at 3:17 pm

      Kolytyi, I know I’m the best present my person could have. I’m not sure what else I could give her but me – and maybe a good walk on my trails.

    Come on now Bongo, admit it…you missed her & just taking that nap so you have extra super charged energy later.

    • Bongo

      April 22, 2013 at 12:28 pm

      Diane, I did miss my person and I’ve been taking her on lots of walks since she got back home.
