Hairless Toby

15 Jul

Bongo on the far side of TobyWe have a new dog in the neighborhood so I went to check him out when I was out on my walk today.

Hmmm. He smells really familiar.

But I’ve never seen a dog before that looks like him.





Bongo and Toby facing away

Some kind of hairless dog. I thought hairless dogs were little. This one seems so big.

Well, nice to meet you, hairless dog.

Bongo walking away from Toby

I’ll just be on my way now.

Person,what do you mean, we’re done with our walk?

Can’t we go around the block some more?

I know our house is right here.

Hey, wait a minute. That strange hairless dog went over to my neighbor Toby’s house.

I wonder if Toby got a new brother.

I don’t believe it!

Toby didn’t get a new brother.

That is Toby!

I hope Toby doesn’t get mad at me that I blogged about him without realizing it.

That must be really embarrassing to have no hair.

Toby, I won’t tell if you don’t.

    Ah, he’s in his summer outfit! I see you however in your thunder vest!

      Marina, it’s thunder time around here. I didn’t even want to go on that walk because there was far away thunder, but my person made me go. I can’t figure it out though. Toby wears less because it’s summer and I wear more.

    Whoa, where did his furs go?!? Did Toby get himself a new hot-weather look?

    • Bongo

      Gizmo, Toby says that’s his new summer style. Guess I’ll have to get used to it. He normally has really long hair.

    Whoa! Better get the sunblock or doggy t-shirt out in direct sun. Maybe not quite such a buzz cut next time…They always do look a bit embarrassed.

      Karen, Toby usually goes on lots of short walks rather than long ones, so maybe he’ll get a good tan instead of a burn.

    Oh no why did Toby get a buzz cut?

    • Bongo

      Misty Shores, it’s really hot here. Toby probably feels more comfortable – but he sure looks funny.

    Hey Bongo

    Seeing Toby like that scares me, I’d so hate to have my long locks cut so short!!

    Have fun with your hairless buddy

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

      Snoopy, I sure hope your mom doesn’t pull mischief on you and cut off your long locks. Then I’d have two dogs I don’t recognize.

      Dalton, I guess Toby will be blessed with being cooler this hot summer.

    OMG, I hope Toby hasn’t lost his hair because of the stress when he got frightened from a thunder.

    • Bongo

      July 16, 2013 at 1:51 pm

      Kolytyi, that would be terrible. Maybe that’s why my hair is coming out. I hope I don’t lose all of it.

    Wow! Me neither…..I didn’t recognise that it was your neighbour Toby until you mentioned!
    Hmmm….my fur is not so long…but one of our kitties has long hair, so it gives us an idea that we might be shave his fur for summer outfit….

    • Bongo

      Kevin, my person has seen hairless cats before and she says they’re not pretty – or soft like furry cats. I guess if you want to laugh at your kitty it might be good to shave him. Hey, that gives me an idea. Scratchy, can you come over here? I’ve got this razor I want to try out on you.

      Benny & Lily, I hope I don’t see a bunch of shaved dogs marching down the street. Someone might try to get me to join.
