You Don’t Want That

21 May

Bongo looking like he really wants somethingYou don’t want that, do you?

You already ate some and that one’s just sitting there. I don’t think you’re hungry anymore.

You’re not going to give it to me? Why not?

You’re going to take it with you?

But it will get cold, and dried up, and shriveled.

You’d better give it to me.

It’s just sitting there on the table.

You don’t want it anyway.

Bongo with a begging look

Where are you taking that?

You’re not putting it in the fridge, are you?

It’ll sit there and turn hard. Then nobody will eat it. You’ll throw it out and it will go to waste.

You’d better give it to me.

A burger and Bongo's nose

What? Wait – that’s getting awfully close to my nose.

You’re not teasing me, are you?

Is it really for me?

It’s for me?

Bongo taking a bite of a burger

Woo hoo! Mine!

A note to all my readers out there: No dog was harmed by eating this burger. You actually saw me eat burger shaped dog food. I would never in any way, shape, or form, ever consider eating anything unhealthy.

    Your person had you there, didn’t she?!!!
    I know these thoughts all too well! Like your friend over here, you are very talented in mind control and telepathy! You project your burgers…err thoughts so well!

      Thanks Marina. I’ve got my people all figured out. They do what I want without even realizing it.

      Grandma, fooling is fun – as long as I get treats in the end. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Your person would never be that cruel, Bongo – looks like you enjoyed it all the more for waiting. Loved the note to readers as well – I should hope so too lol

      Susan, I hardly ever get special treats like this so I really had to work on it. Do you think it was my sad, sorry look that did it?

    Bongo, your person couldn’t resist such a handsome face!

      Thanks. I’m starting to blush now.

    Burgers are good! It looks like you got a special treat, probably because you’re such a good boy.

      Susan, does that mean I should get special treats every day? I’m always a good boy!???

        Absolutely!!! Life is too short to not have something special everyday!

    What a yummy treat! You are a lucky dog, B. mom would’ve broken it into 52 pieces and given me one a day for 52 days. Being tiny is tougher than it looks.

    Love and licks,

    • Bongo

      May 21, 2013 at 5:46 pm

      Cupcake, maybe if you ate the first piece really fast your mom would give you more.


    May 21, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    Sure does look yummy and like you enjoyed it, but I know you were REALLY just wanting to be sure the food didn’t go to waste cuz you’re a considerate dude Bongo!

    • Bongo

      May 21, 2013 at 5:47 pm

      Max, of course that’s what I was thinking. I’m an environmentally friendly dog. No waste around this place.

    Ah you got it in the end..I was going to suggest that you tell them you saw a fly land on it…then they would have given it to you…I personally don’t like hamburgers but you obviously I hope that you enjoyed it ….maybe i would like hamburger if I made it myself but never eat shop ones…yuck!

    • Bongo

      May 21, 2013 at 11:54 pm

      Patrecia, I’ll eat any kind of hamburgers. I’m not picky. But I think I’ll remember that fly thing for next time. My younger person will probably go for it.

    Wow an entire hamburger, you lucky lucky dog!!

    • Bongo

      May 22, 2013 at 12:03 pm

      Dalton, it hardly ever happens. It was really a special treat.

    Phew!!! *whpingforeheadwithapaw* I’m relieved to hear you finally got the humburger!
    Wow! I didn’t know that there is ” Burger shaped Dog food”! *giggles* 🙂

    • Bongo

      May 22, 2013 at 12:04 pm

      Kevin, that burger shaped dog food even tastes like a real burger. You’ll have to get your mom to find some for you. I think they come from McDonald’s.

      Benny & Lily, it doesn’t happen here very often either, but my younger person was full and he was leaving for his college place in a little while. Guess I just got lucky.

    Bongo, you are a hero! You saved your person’s life! Burger-overdose can be fatal!

    • Bongo

      May 22, 2013 at 12:06 pm

      Kolytyi, I hadn’t thought of that. I kept my younger person from eating too much bad food.

    Bongo, you’ve got it made – that’s a great score…usually I have to grab mine off the counter & then there’s all sorts of yelling going on which I don’t know what that’s all about – people are just funny about food sometimes.

    • Bongo

      May 22, 2013 at 8:18 pm

      Lola, I usually wait until my people leave the house to check for things on the counter – but for some reason I hardly ever find any good stuff there any more. I was really lucky with that burger. It doesn’t happen very often.

    Wow, finally you get a bite 😀

    • Bongo

      May 22, 2013 at 8:18 pm

      Little Binky, I would share some with you but it’s gone already.

    Good job Bongo you sat there looking sad until he shared it with you. Yes we always think of ratting something unhealthy but we only get it occasionally and a much smaller bite.

    • Bongo

      May 22, 2013 at 11:05 pm

      Lexie and Mica, it’s real unusual for me to get a whole burger. It was an extra special treat.

    Who could resist your face in that second photo Bongo, I would have given you a whole bag of burgers 🙂

    • Bongo

      May 23, 2013 at 5:48 pm

      Misty Shores, I’ll remember that if I’m ever at your house.

    Oh don’t we all know that look? Simply melts the heart!

      Delft, it sure worked for me. At least that time.

      Collies, last night my people lit up the grill and I got more treats. Come on over – I’ll make sure my people buy enough goodies for all of us.
