I Like the Old One

27 May

Bongo on a short leashMy person is definitely the mischief maker today. You see, I had the perfect leash. Well, perfect would have been walking without a leash, but if I’ve got to walk my person with a leash, this one was the best. When my person tried to keep me from going out further on that leash, it didn’t work. That leash was definitely on my side. I could go get loves from people my person tried to keep me away from, and meet up with dogs I didn’t know yet. I mean, how am I going to add to my list of girlfriends if I don’t get a chance to meet any? But now, I have a new leash. . .

Bongo looking at the leash

Come on person, ease up! I’ve got places to go, smells to sniff, and people and dogs to meet.

Bongo tight on a leash and looking back

Can you give me a little more slack? You’re cramping my style, person.

Bongo on a tight leash looking at a distant dog

This is not good at all. That dog – you see that dog way over there? Well that dog came right up near me, and if I’d had the old leash attached to my person I would have been able to get to that dog and give him what for. He pretends he’s being friendly, but I know what he’s really thinking.

Wait a minute. It was because of that dog that I got my old leash working just right. I guess I’d better be nice to him next time he comes over.

Hey person, you’ve got to let me go. I’ve got to go tell that dog we’re buddies now.

I think the power of this new leash has gone to my person’s head.

She is such a mischief maker.

    Oh, no! Not that leash!!!! It makes an annoying noise too!
    Still, I believe you will find a way to make it obey you. It just takes a little practice.

      Marina, maybe if I yank on this leash hard enough I can bust it up and make it work the way I want it to.

    hi Bongo! let me give you some ☼sunHUGS to ease your new leash pain away… ☺

      Thanks Sunshine. I was just thinking about you so I’m glad you stopped by. I’ll hop on over to your blog.

        you sure your new leash is looooooooong enough, Bongo??? ☺

        Sunshine, I could use several more feet on my leash.

      • Sunshine

        May 27, 2013 at 12:53 pm

        …just several more or several thousand feet of leash??? ☺

    Leashes! Ugh! They’re the absolute worst.

      Cupcake, I agree. I think we should get Congress to ban them.

    Bongo – it could only be a 2 Ft. leash – Egads! I understand your trouble, though. Silverwalk’s new dog, Halle, wants to meet everyone – she’ll even climb a chain link fence! So, she gets walked in the yard on a 15 Ft. lead and on the road/path with a 6 Ft. leash. Not as good as your old one, though – from her perspective.

    • Bongo

      Roberta, I get to run free in my yard, but my person will never let me stay out there alone. For some reason she doesn’t like it when I jump the six foot fence. I’m not sure what her problem is. I always come home eventually.

      Benny & Lily, sometimes people just aren’t any fun. I hope you had a great Memorial Day.

    Bongo, I think a short lash is embarrasing, I mean, what would the other dogs think, when you’re shorten up 😉

    • Bongo

      May 28, 2013 at 12:05 am

      Little Binky, you are so right. The other dogs might think my person has control over me, instead of the other way around.

    Oh the cruelty of it all Bongo. You need your freedom, your ability to explore and express your emotions. These bipeds just don’t get it!

    here’s the solution..let me whisper in your ear … just pull and tug on it..that way you will break the mechanism then you can have more leash to play with….

      Great idea Patrecia. By the way, do you have a new blog? I can’t seem to find you. Can you send me the link?

    O no i can’t believe the new leash is working against you! Could you dead it?

    • Bongo

      May 28, 2013 at 1:23 pm

      Dalton, I’m sure gonna have to do something.

    Your person is just trying to keep you and her safe. I know how you feel though, Charlie hates his harness, even though it means he gets to go for a walk.

    • Bongo

      May 28, 2013 at 1:23 pm

      Susan, I guess I shouldn’t complain. At least I don’t have to wear a harness. Please don’t tell my person about harnesses.

        You got a deal!

    Hi Bongo!
    One way to fix that is find the leash when your human is not watching and chew it till it falls apart! Then back to the old leash…. agh ppl dont know how to use power….
    yours for world domination,
    Ginger 🙂

    • Bongo

      May 28, 2013 at 1:24 pm

      Ginger, I’m going to start chewing now. Oh wait, how do I get that drawer open. Scratchy, can you come over here for a minute?


    May 28, 2013 at 5:16 am

    Poor little Bongo! Max would love to hang with ya and be your buddy 😉

    • Bongo

      May 28, 2013 at 1:37 pm

      Max, come on over. We’d have a great time together.

    You look so frustrated on the pictures, Bongo. I’ve never had a leash that the length is changeable, that seems to be cool! By the way, could you say “Hi” to the dog who you met on your trail?

    • Bongo

      May 28, 2013 at 1:40 pm

      Kevin, my person likes the changeable length leash because some parts of my trails are too narrow for me to walk next to her. But that dog and I didn’t get along well the last time he came over to say hi, so our people wouldn’t let us get that close this time – but we tried.

    Bongo, we have a leash like that for walking too. If no one is coming Dad lets us have more so we can walk around and sniff but he shortens it on us if there are other dogs and people 😦

    • Bongo

      May 29, 2013 at 12:15 am

      Lexie and Mica, that’s what my person does. Lengthens and shortens the leash, but the old leash wouldn’t stay short. It was pretty cool, but my person had to go and replace it.

    Uh oh!

    • Bongo

      May 29, 2013 at 4:05 pm

      Misty Shores, I think I’m going to hide that new leash. Then my person will have to use the old one again.

    What about chewing on that new leash a little bit?

    • Bongo

      May 30, 2013 at 1:25 pm

      Kolytyi, I’ll have to get to work on that.

    Heh, Bongo let me clue you in on that leash…I used to have one & at the very end was just this thin cord that winds up. Well, you keep pulling on that & before you know it you can bust that cord & be a free man…of course I might put a little more weight on leashes, but I bet you can work this out…Lola

    • Bongo

      May 30, 2013 at 1:26 pm

      Lola, I have managed to bust a cord so it wouldn’t go back in at all. Usually if I try to bust the cord off, I pull my person onto the ground instead. Then she calls me a Pita dog.
