I’m Rich!

24 Jun

Bongo in front of a bushI found it! I found it! I’m rich! I’m rich!

I just found the best treasure ever on my trails.

I didn’t have to dig for it. It’s not a buried treasure.

No. It’s right here in plain sight.

Well, it’s a little ways off my trail and that’s probably why nobody found it before me.

But now I found it, and it’s mine.


Oh, you can’t tell what this plant is that’s hanging out behind me?

Bush with round white things on it

It’s a money tree! And it’s all mine.

Can you imagine what I can do with all the money from this tree?

All the treats I can buy?

I’ll be in treat heaven. And then everybody will be coming and giving me loves so they can have some of my treats.

What? You can’t tell this is a money tree?

Check this out.

A cluster of round flat white things on a bush

Do you see the coins hanging on this tree?

Two clusters of coin like things hanging from a bush

Look. They’re all over it.

Now don’t get any ideas.

I found this tree and it’s mine.

I’m not telling anyone where it is.

But if you’re real nice to me…

Bongo smiling in front of the money tree

I might give you a coin so you can buy a treat.

    Oh please, Bongo, I’ve been looking for a money tree for years.
    My family seems to think I have one already!

      Grandma, I think my person has a money tree stashed away too, but she keeps telling me she doesn’t – especially after I tear up one of my toys. Sometimes I have to wait for a new one.

    Oh, Bongo, you are a millionaire!!!! But, hang on… you are rich anyway aren’t you?!!!
    Beautiful tree, although I think it would look even nicer if instead of those coins, fish were hanging, huh?!

    • Bongo

      June 24, 2013 at 1:32 pm

      Marina, you’re so right. A fish tree would be great. Do you have fish trees where you live? My person said they would probably look more like fish seaweed – but I don’t know what seaweed is. Does it taste good?

      • marina kanavaki

        June 24, 2013 at 1:57 pm

        I hear it’s rejuvenating but I haven’t tasted it. My hubby says it tastes good (he likes sushi, as you would too!)
        The answer is yes, lots of seaweed trees and fish trees!!!

        Woo woo! I’m on my way over.

    Ooh, a money tree! It’s so purdy 😀

    • Bongo

      June 24, 2013 at 1:32 pm

      Thanks Jen and Elka. It’s the only money tree I’ve ever found.

    I can see you’re keeping a close eye on that tree, B. Mom told me money doesn’t grow on trees. Ha! Yes, it does….

    Love and licks,

    • Bongo

      June 24, 2013 at 1:33 pm

      Cupcake, our people don’t know everything. Or maybe they just tell us things like that so they don’t have to buy us extra treats.

    Guard your treasure carefully Bongo…but if you have the time, pawleeze spare a coin fur me 🙂

    • Bongo

      June 24, 2013 at 1:34 pm

      Gizmo, there’s lots of coins. I’ll send one your way.

    I wish I had a money tree but Diane keeps telling me “money doesn’t grow on trees ya know” – she says that every time I beg for more & more bacon. Maybe pigs should grow on trees & I can grow my own bacon…Lola

    • Bongo

      June 24, 2013 at 1:35 pm

      Lola, that would be really interesting. A pig tree. I’ll have to look around and see if I can find one of those.

      • dianeskitchentable

        June 25, 2013 at 1:42 pm

        Just don’t stand under one in case the pigs fall out.

    Wow! Sweet Bongo you found a money tree?? We would love to have a money tree. Spend all that money wisely sweet friend. Hugs and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      June 24, 2013 at 1:35 pm

      Chancy and Mumsy, I’ll be very wise with my money. I’ll just spend it on lots of treats.

    Bongo, where’s the money…MOL… just kidding. Take good care of your tree, don’t forget to water it, before you know you’ll run out of money. Pawkisses 🙂

    • Bongo

      June 24, 2013 at 1:44 pm

      Little Binky, I’m for sure watering my tree. I sure hope I don’t run out of money though. It’s my ticket for extra treats.

  9. Roberta

    June 24, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    Where your treasure is, there your heart is also…sounds like not only do you have a money tree, but a big heart sharing coins and treats! Now, THAT’s rich :).

    • Bongo

      June 24, 2013 at 5:35 pm

      Thanks Roberta. I always knew I was rich somehow.

  10. Patricia

    June 24, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    How wonderful…a money tree. But don’t spend all at once. Save some for when you really really need a treat.

    • Bongo

      June 24, 2013 at 10:00 pm

      Patricia, I might keep one or two coins for something special.

    June 24, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    Wow, Bongo! Is that really called a Money Tree? If not, what is it?! So Pretty!

    • Bongo

      June 24, 2013 at 9:55 pm

      Champ’s Mom, my person tried to find my money tree on the internet and had no luck so we don’t know what it’s really called. It’s my one of a kind bush. We haven’t found any more like it.

    I hope you won’t be forgetting your pals now that you are rich!! OO and a crown you should so buy a crown!

    • Bongo

      June 25, 2013 at 11:21 am

      Dalton, my person said they had lots of crowns at her Kingdom Rock Vacation Bible School. Maybe I can get one of those for cheap. That way I’ll have more money left to buy treats for my friends.

    You are one lucky dog!! Send us some seeds
    Benny & Lily

    • Bongo

      June 25, 2013 at 11:22 am

      Benny & Lily, great idea. The coins from my money tree have seeds in them. I could send you a coin and you can grow your own money tree. All my friends are going to have unlimited treats soon.

  14. snoopy@snoopysdogblog

    Hey Bongo,

    What a cool find buddy!! You’re gonna be one happy dog, don’t spend it all at once though! 🙂

    Big wags,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Bongo

      June 25, 2013 at 11:23 am

      Snoopy, I’m hoping my money will last so I can have extra treats all year. And then next year there should be a new crop of money.

  15. kolytyi

    June 25, 2013 at 9:36 am

    Oh, Bongo, you are a really lucky doggy! I’ve found a similar tree, too, but its coins were so small that I could have bought only a cake for its whole crop!

    • Bongo

      June 25, 2013 at 11:24 am

      Kolytyi, I’ll have to send you one of my coins. Then you can plant it and have lots of good sized coins for cakes.

      • kolytyi

        June 27, 2013 at 10:49 am

        Great idea, Bongo, thank you for your generosity!

    Ooooohhh!!! Well done Bongo! How cool you are to find those money tree!!! 🙂

    • Bongo

      June 25, 2013 at 11:24 am

      Kevin, come on over and I’ll buy you some treats with my new found money.

    Now that’s one happy dog.
    Seriously that last picture looks like a money shot to me!
    Somebody is bound to know what that tree is….unless it’s from outer space….keep an eye on it Bongo!

    • Bongo

      June 25, 2013 at 1:30 pm

      Karen, I’m wondering now. Could my money tree have come from outer space? Some people here say we have aliens and UFOs. Maybe they brought that money tree just for me.

      • philosophermouseofthehedge

        June 25, 2013 at 2:54 pm

        Must be! They knew you would be kind and share – dog do show superior intelligence sometimes…bound to be noticed

    June 25, 2013 at 5:54 pm

    Bongo!!!! You’re so lucky to have found such a treasure! 🙂

    • Bongo

      June 25, 2013 at 7:20 pm

      Thanks Wiley. I guess not everybody finds their own money tree.

      • Wiley Schmidt

        June 25, 2013 at 7:22 pm

        It’s true!!! You’re one lucky dog!

  19. Misty Shores Chesapeakes

    June 25, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    What a find Bongo, your own money tree, you are rich!

    • Bongo

      June 25, 2013 at 7:21 pm

      Misty Shores, I’m so rich I can buy my friends treats too. Hold out your hand and I’ll give you some.

    MOney tree? Coins? Wow… now how do I get the old guy to plant a hundred of these and then I can buy my way to world domination! By the way you might want to plant some doggy land mines around that tree to keep ppl away!

    • Bongo

      June 27, 2013 at 2:39 pm

      Ginger, I’ll send you some coins than you can plant your own money tree. And thanks for the doggie land mines idea. I’ve usually dropped them before I get to that money tree. I’ll have to hold on to them a little bit longer.
