Not Me

03 Jun

Bongo near a messy bedHey person, you forgot to make your bed this morning. You’d better make it. It looks pretty messy.

What in the world are you talking about?

You’re trying to blame me because you didn’t make your bed?

I’m not even allowed on your bed. My bed’s down on the floor next to yours. I might mess my bed up, but I would never mess yours up.





An unmade bed

I don’t know why there’s a pillow and a blanket right where you sleep. Maybe you slept on top of them.

How would you know if you slept on them or not? You were asleep.

Well, if you didn’t mess up your bed like that then it must have been Scratchy. You let him sleep on the bed.

How come you let Scratchy sleep on the bed and not me?

That is totally unfair. You’re showing favoritism to cats.

That’s what you get for it. Scratchy got on your bed while you were gone and totally messed it up.

I wasn’t going to tell, but he’s just gone too far this time.

What do you mean, you don’t believe me? Of course Scratchy did it.

Bongo looking innocent in front of the messy bed

Look into my eyes, person. I did not mess up that bed.

That bed is not even messed up. What you see is a perfectly well made bed.

You will get into bed like normal tonight, without noticing anything awry.


What do you mean, this isn’t working?

I didn’t do it. Really.

    Bongo, ask Mama how many times you’ve lied to her. You’d never lie to your mama, right? Right?!?

      FleaByte, I would never tell a lie. I’m the perfect dog.

    We totally believe you!
    Anyway, IF you messed up that bed it would look far messier. At least all the covers would be properly wound around and around, right?

      Delft, you’re so right. I wouldn’t have stopped there like Scratchy did. I would have made a complete mess of that bed. Oops. Did I say that? Not me.

    I wonder why she thinks so… even I was convinced by those tawny eyes, hmm the color of the blanket and pillow! Nuh… 🙂

      Marina, for some reason my person thinks I’m always to blame. I don’t know why but it’s not fair.

    (And this is why we have gates on the hall…like that’s going to stop Air Molly if she decides to visit….)
    Best advice? Stick to your story, Bongo.

    • Bongo

      Karen, I’m stickin’. My person says we don’t have gates because if I didn’t jump over them I’d crash right through them.

      • philosophermouseofthehedge

        Gates work fine here as long as Molly is asleep (or we are standing there right behind them.) Dog giggles!

    You are busted, B. Scratchy would never be able to do such a thorough job of creating the perfect bed. Plus, your face is a dead giveaway!!!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, please don’t tell on me – I mean, Scratchy did too do it.

    No worries, Bongo. Without actual evidence or a witness the case would never hold up and court.

      Patricia, you’re right. There’s not a thing that can trace this back to me. I sure hope my person doesn’t put a video camera in this room.

      • Patricia

        June 3, 2013 at 6:30 pm

        You are safe, Bongo. Your person would not put a video camera in the bedroom. Trust me on this one.

    Scratchy did it

      Thanks Benny & Lily. Two more votes for me. Scratchy, you’re in trouble now!!!

    Definitely Scratchy. Just can’t trust those kitties!

    • Bongo

      June 3, 2013 at 11:29 pm

      BZ, you’re so right. Cats are always getting into all kinds of mischief, and then putting the blame on us dogs.

    Of course you didn’t!!! I think it was scratchy, or your person just couldn’t be bothered and decided to blame you! How you suffer!

    • Bongo

      June 4, 2013 at 12:58 pm

      Dalton, I’m always getting the blame for everything. I’ll figure a way to get Scratchy back though.

    I believe you, Bongo! I can tell it from your innocent eyes! Hang on…..aren’t there pawprints on the pillow…? *Oops!!!* No no…they might be cat’s pawprints, Bongo! Not doggies ones!!! *giggles* 🙂

    • Bongo

      June 4, 2013 at 12:59 pm

      Kevin, I think Scratchy has really big paws.

    As I look at that bed, your person must have had a really bad night. No wonder that she is totally exhausted by that huge amount of lack of sleep. She not only forget to make her bed but also talks nonsense. Forgive her, Bongo!

    • Bongo

      June 4, 2013 at 1:00 pm

      Kolytyi, I guess my person does have trouble sleeping sometimes. Like when I want to go outside before she’s ready.

    Only human can mess up a bed like that, Bongo, you are definitely innocent. I saw it immediately 😀

    • Bongo

      June 5, 2013 at 12:03 am

      Little Binky, I’m sure you’re right. My person forgot to make her bed and blamed it on me.

    “How would you know if you slept on them or not? You were asleep.”
    That was a totally valid argument Bongo. I’m sure you are totally innocent. Your eyes betray your innocence. Also, I’m a li’l cross with your person for two things – 1. for blaming you , and 2. for showing favoritism to cats (now that is UNFAIR)

    • Bongo

      June 6, 2013 at 11:56 am

      Sanscera, thanks for sticking with me. I’m gonna go tell my person now that she’s in trouble – real trouble.

    Same deal here at my house Bongo – Moe gets to snuggle up behind Diane’s knees every single night & I can’t even drape myself across her when there’s that awful lightening stuff going on. Plus humans don’t even know how to make a bed – that looks exactly like how I like my bed – nice & scruffed up for snuggling.

    • Bongo

      June 10, 2013 at 10:02 pm

      Lola, that is the best kind of bed – but I can’t figure out why our people won’t share with us. Especially when they share with the cats.

    Seems to me the Ginger if the bed is messed up its okay for you to take a nap in it since you can’t mess it up! Seems logical to me!

    • Bongo

      June 11, 2013 at 9:40 pm

      Ginger, I was thinking the same thing.
