The Hottest Day

29 Jun

Bongo on the trailToday was the hottest day of the year, so what did my person want to do?

She wanted to go outside and experiment with her new camera.

I don’t know why she couldn’t have waited until maybe October. When the weather’s nice.

So we had to spend extra time out in the heat today while my person fiddled with her camera and figured out how to change the settings.

And she still has her old camera. She could have taken that instead.

It’s really stupid why my person has a new camera.

She was taking me for a walk on my trails and taking pictures (she’s always doing that) and my younger person called so she was trying to take pictures and talk on the phone and she dropped her camera.

I was really excited when my person said her camera wouldn’t work – but what did she do? She ordered another one right away. She said she felt naked without her camera and this new one did more.

Well my younger person got her camera working again so now my person has two cameras. And she had to experiment with the new camera on the hottest day of the year.

Here I am panting away and my person’s taking pictures of…

Juniper Berries

Juniper berries, and…

Sedona Red Rocks

red rocks, and…

flowers gone to seed

dead flowers.

But I’ve decided I really don’t like this camera after she took this picture of me.

I hope that camera has a setting for suave and debonair.

    Maybe your person’s camera doesn’t have a setting for suave and debonair, but it certainly does the job of showing you in all your glorious charm, Bongo. This picture is going on my list of favorites!

    Stay cool!

      Thanks Speakdoggie. I’m not sure if the ladies will be interested in me after seeing that picture, but I guess some of my friends like it. Maybe I should pose for some more.

    It certainly has a setting for “cute”!

      Thanks Karen. Do you think the ladies will go for it? Maybe you should ask Molly.

      Thanks. I’m trying to get up the courage to go out for my walk now. It’s almost 7:00 PM and still really hot out there.

    Aw! At least she had it on her “totally cute” setting!

      Thanks. I was a little nervous about my image but everybody seems to like it. And thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    OMGoodness, B! Your person was definitely not using the suave and debonair setting for that picture! I think it was the cute and adorable setting….

    Love and licks,

    • Bongo

      June 29, 2013 at 6:49 pm

      Cupcake, I guess the girls go for cute and adorable. I think I’ll get my person to take some more of these.

    Oh…must have been very very hot there!!! Please be careful not to get heat stroke, Bongo.
    I’m glad that your person has two camera now (oops, sorry Bongo! ) because we can really enjoy these lovely pictures almost everyday! thank you very much! 🙂

    • Bongo

      June 29, 2013 at 7:56 pm

      Kevin, I’ll just have to make sure I check what pictures my person is going to post of me before she does it. I certainly wouldn’t want to get embarrassed on my blog.

      Benny & Lily, I wish the fog monster would show up here. It’s been really hot.

    We thought that camera did a very good job showing how hot you were while waiting on your person to try out the camera settings. We will be looking forward to seeing terrific pictures of you now that she has that new camera set. Hugs and nose kisses sweet Bongo

    • Bongo

      June 29, 2013 at 7:58 pm

      Chancy and Mumsy, I sure hope my person doesn’t post any really embarrassing pictures of me.

    Those red rocks are beautiful! And were roasting over here as well. Ugh.

    • Bongo

      June 30, 2013 at 1:35 pm

      Thanks BZ, and thank God for air conditioning. I’ll have to take my person on a red rock photo shoot with her new camera when it cools down a bit.

    Very suave and debonair Bongo. You might become a Dog Star one day. So keep it up. ,

    • Bongo

      June 30, 2013 at 1:35 pm

      Thanks Sherrell. Dog Star would be awesome. I guess I’ll pose for a few more pictures.

    The photo has the highest cute-factor, Bongo, don’t do anything about it. We’ve heard it on the news yesterday that there was a enormous heat wave, with temperatures that Granny and I don’t want to experience…. stay cool boy 😉

    • Bongo

      June 30, 2013 at 1:39 pm

      Thanks Little Binky. We’re for sure having a heat wave here. My younger person came home for the weekend though and says it’s cool here. I think it got to about 117 degrees Fahrenheit where he lives. It’s only almost that hot here. Thanks goodness for air conditioning. Yesterday we waited until after 7:00 PM for my walk and it was still hot.

    As I see your person has found a very capable camera and the best BONGO-settings! I hope she will use it very-very often!
    Your smile is just enchanting!

    • Bongo

      June 30, 2013 at 1:41 pm

      Thanks Kolytyi. I guess I’ll have to start posing more. As long as I get treats.

    I really love that picture of you Bongo! Hoomins have such a “thing” about cameras and pictures don’t they? At least I usually get paid off in cookies…hope you do too

    • Bongo

      June 30, 2013 at 1:44 pm

      Thanks Gizmo. If my person takes pictures of me in the house I get cookies, but she doesn’t bring them along on the trail. I think I need to retrain her.

    Oh we’ve had some hot ones here to Bongo although probably not as hot as yours. I’ve been hanging out in the basement where it’s nice & cool but I do hate to miss out on a car ride or a walk…Lola

    • Bongo

      July 1, 2013 at 2:37 pm

      Lola, we’re experiencing a record heat wave here. I wish we had a basement. Hardly anyone does here because the ground is too rocky to dig into. But at least I’m still getting my walks. We just wait until it’s almost dark most days and the shadows are long.

    That’s such a cute picture of you Bongo!

    • Bongo

      July 1, 2013 at 2:40 pm

      Thanks Jackie. I’m just hoping the girls will still go for me.

    Great shots, beautiful flowers and rocks… and one hot dog! Is that a fish-eye?

    • Bongo

      July 12, 2013 at 4:25 pm

      Thanks Delft. Yes, my person found out her new camera has a fish-eye setting so now she keeps taking pictures of me like that.

    I kind of like that picture of you Bongo, I think you look real cute 🙂

    • Bongo

      July 12, 2013 at 5:17 pm

      Thanks Misty Shores. I’m just not sure if the cute girls around here will go for it.

    Ginger thinks you are always suave and debonair… find that setting and perhaps scratchy will even look better…

    • Bongo

      July 14, 2013 at 4:19 pm

      Thanks Ginger. As long as you think I’m suave and debonair I’m happy. But I really do need to get my person to take some pictures of Scratchy with that setting.
