I Am Not Weird

11 Jun

Bongo by a bushI am not weird. What do you mean I’m weird?

What do you mean, I don’t do that? You mean I’m weird if I don’t do what other dogs do?

I bet most of my blogging dog buddies don’t do that either.

What do you mean they don’t do that because they don’t get a chance?

Don’t those things cross everyone’s path – in the summer at least?

They’re constantly flitting around on my trails.

If I chased every one of them that I saw I’d be totally worn out.

And besides you’d be yanking on my leash when you didn’t want to follow me through the bushes.

You think I should have chased those two that ran right under my nose today? Just because other dogs would have done it?

You’d better be glad I am weird then, or I’d be yanking your arm right out of its socket when I took off. They run fast.

Look, there goes one now.

Do you want me to chase it?

I’m not weird. I don’t bother the ones on my trails because I figure that’s where they belong.

But watch out if they come in my yard.

When I find one of those yard lizards…

I’m chasing it up a tree.

    Ah, Bongo, you are not only sweet and handsome, you are clever and wise too!

      Thanks Marina. I guess only my person thinks I’m weird.

    Nothing wrong with weird…normal is a bore.

      Patricia, I guess I never want to be normal. Boring isn’t part of my vocabulary.

      Thanks Sunshine. I can’t imagine anyone thinking Bongo business is weird.

      Benny & Lily, you can come over and chase mine any time.

    Yard lizards! How rude. They are trespassers. They deserve whatever they get.

    Love and licks and I never saw a lizard,

      Cupcake, it’s probably good that you haven’t seen a lizard. They might scare you. Or maybe not. You might have fun chasing them.

    Hehehe, my mom wishes I was “weird” in this way, Bongo!

      Remy, I just like bigger things to chase. Cats, rabbits, coyotes. Now those are fun to chase.

      Karen, I think that makes me interesting. My person would be bored if I was like every other dog.

      Ginger, I bet if I yanked my person’s socket out she’d call me something other than weird.

    Bongo, that’s not weird at all, everybody does it, I even run up on the tree for it and nobody says I’m a weirdo 😀

      Little Binky, I wish I could run up the tree – but my person thinks I’m weird when I don’t chase the lizards that run right under my nose. I know I can’t catch them so why bother.

    Sounds perfectly normally to me!

      June 16, 2013 at 1:39 pm

      Thanks Dalton. Those lizards run and hide under things before you can get near them anyway.

      Nancy, there’s one problem. If you catch a lizard by the tail, all you get is the tail.

    You’re not weird, Bongo!
    I don’t think that I’m interested in yard lizard either…well…in fact…I’m scared of them…I’m not good at small insects especially the worse one is a fly…if I find a fly, I always hide somewhere….
    Our kitties loves small moving things though, so I’m sure that it is Scratchy’s role to chase the yard lizard! 🙂

    • Bongo

      June 16, 2013 at 1:40 pm

      Kevin, I think you’re right. I’m sending Scratchy out after those yard lizards. He can go up the tree after them.

    You are NOT weird, Bongo! I chase anything that moves! 🙂

    • Bongo

      June 16, 2013 at 1:56 pm

      Thanks Wiley. I usually only chase bigger things that I think I might be able to catch – like rabbits and coyotes. But I’ve never been able to catch those either.

    I think you only take care of the physical integrity of your person(‘s arms). She should be grateful to you.

    • Bongo

      June 16, 2013 at 2:01 pm

      Kolytyi, most of the time I’m good to my person’s arms unless there’s something I really want to go after – like a coyote.

    Bongo, if I saw one of those I’d be screaming like a girl…oh wait I am a girl. No way would I chase it though so I guess I’m weird too…Lola

      Lola, if you come here and see a lizard I’ll protect you.
