Back in the Dog Hotel

05 Jul
Bongo Behind Bars

I’m stuck at the dog hotel and I take no responsibility for what’s posted here.

This is the third time this has happened this year.

No, I didn’t run away and get put in dog jail, but sometimes it feels the same.

Like I’m locked behind bars.

But my person keeps bringing me here and then leaves.

It’s not fair.

It’s totally not fair.

My person should never be allowed to go anywhere without me. That’s just not right.

If she’s going on vacation I should be able to go along. This dog hotel isn’t anything like a vacation.

Same old scenery. It’s not even as good as my trails.

Oh, wait. I think my person said something about driving all day long through the desert.

And she said it’s going to be even hotter than my trails have been lately.

And my only options would be to hang out in the car for a long, long time – or to get out in the hot, hot desert where the sand would probably burn through the pads on my paws.

So don’t tell my person that I have some really cool friends at this dog hotel.

And one of them really plays with me a lot.

I don’t want my person to think I’m having any fun here while she’s roasting in the desert.

Because next time she leaves she might be going to a place that I want to go.

Like swimming or something.

And I didn’t tell my person this, but I saved up some of my adventures so while I’m in the dog hotel I can still pretend I’m out having adventures on my trails, and I can share them with you.

Got to go now.

I think one of my friends wants to play.

    Best to keep all that fun stuff to yourself , B. a little guilt goes a long way. I see plenty of cookies in your future when you get out of jail.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, I’m finally out of the dog hotel – working on making my person feel really guilty so she’ll give me cookies. There’s a whole lot that I missed getting that are still sitting on top of the fridge.

    In jail or dog hotel at least you are safe and now the rains have come to help put out the fires…I do hope that it will do that…are they far from you..stay safe my dearest n hugs and sloppy wet kisses

      Patrecia, the fires aren’t really close to us. One in Prescott is about 65 miles away and the Yarnell Fire – the one where the 19 firefighters died is about 100 miles away. It’s raining here right now and I hope it’s raining on the fires because they’re still working on getting those fires completely out.

    I think your person has bought a season ticket for the Hotel, but I’m so happy you have friends in dog jail..sorry, Hotel, Bongo and don’t worry, my lips are sealed 🙂

      Little Binky, it sure seems like I’ve been going to that dog hotel a lot lately. I’m finally home and my person says she doesn’t have any more reservations there for me right now. I hope it stays that way – but I do have this friend there…

      Patricia, my person finally came back and got me. But she went to the beach one day and for some reason didn’t get me and take me there.

      Bassa, I finally got to go back home. But I have a really good friend there now. I’m going to miss her.

    Your person should never be allowed to do anything she cannot do with you, too.

    • Bongo

      July 12, 2013 at 4:37 pm

      Kolytyi, I totally agree with you. Especially since I learned my person went to the beach one day. She should never be allowed to go there without me.

      Thanks Misty Shores. I had a great time with my friend – but my person doesn’t need to know that.

    what is it with humans and their putting everything behind doors, bars and glass?

      Ginger, I don’t get it either. I’m perfectly capable of staying home and taking care of myself. All my person has to do is leave out my bag of dog food – and all the treats.
