Bongo not movingI’ve got a complaint, and I should have posted this for Monday Mischief, but when someone pulls mischief on me, I’ve got to post it when it happens.

You see, my person tried to tell me everything was fine outside. I knew it wasn’t but she made me go.

My neighbor across the street was in on it too. He said there wasn’t any thunder.

But I knew it was coming. The wind was blowing, the clouds were dark, and I knew I would hear that awful noise any minute.

It even started raining. I swear I felt a drop or two.

I took my person into my wash because it seemed like the safest place.

But then it happened. The wind picked up and I heard a rumbly in the sky. Not loud, but it still meant business in my book.

Bongo trying to climb the rocks

I tried to get my person to head the safest direction, but for some reason she wouldn’t go for it.

More mischief on her part, I’m sure.

Since my person wouldn’t go up that hill there was only one direction to head – and it led straight to my toadies.

And you know what my person did?

She pulled more mischief on me!

Bongo tied to a dead tree

She tied me to a tree.

Bongo tied to and tangled on a tree

She tried to tell me it was so I wouldn’t trample the toadies.

Bongo looking down from the tree he's tied to

I’ll trample those toadies alright.

They’re pulling mischief on me too.

They took my puddle.

Tiny toads in mud

There were little toadies hopping around everywhere that my puddle used to be.

They seemed to be settling in.

Toads in a mud hut

They even had little toad houses.

This mischief has gone far enough.

I’m having it out with those toadies right now.

Those toadies are going to have to move and give me back my puddle.

    What the mischief? Invasion!
    Bongo, we used to make toad houses just like that when we were kids – but we never saw a toad in them. More mischief! They are all where you are…do not listen if they complain they are homeless.

      Karen, we have so many toadies here right now – I could send you some to fill up your toad houses.

    Oh, those toadies are so cute. You should not stomp them, I think they should be your friends! There is one in the last photo that has kind eyes 🙂

      Viciously Sweet, I wasn’t trying to stomp on those toadies. I guess my person thought I might step on them accidentally. I used to get in the puddle and stir up all the tadpoles. And there are so many toadies you really have to watch where you step.

    Please don, t make them homeless!

    Didn, t you have your thunder jacket on?

    • Bongo

      Patrecia, those toadies will probably hop off and find new homes. But I sure would like my puddle back. My person hadn’t put my thunder jacket on me and she tried to tell me there was no thunder. She was wrong. Although I think she planned to go out for our walk just at the time the thunder showed up.

    careful you don’t get foamy mouth from those toadies…

    • Bongo

      August 6, 2013 at 3:02 pm

      Sunshine, those toadies are much too little for a tasty morsel and I think they’ll all be off and hiding somewhere before they get bigger.

      • Sunshine

        August 7, 2013 at 4:56 am

        i heard they can be nasty tasting and seen good dogs, like yourself, come out foaming at the mouth. not at all purty.

        My people had a cat once that got very sick because she probably ate a toad or a lizard. Maybe that’s why Scratchy has to stay in the house.

        oh, dear. what can be so tasty with a toady dish? sounds yucky. yea. Scratchy better stay inside if it likes to eat them.

    OMC… Bongo, even if you get rid of them, they’ll always return to your puddle…they think it’s their home….Aaarrrgh…

    • Bongo

      Little Binky, I might have to put up my Bongo’s Puddle sign again. That’ll tell those toadies.

    Bongo, the toadies are cutsie! Maybe you can become friends instead. Wooooowoooooo, Ku

    • Bongo

      August 6, 2013 at 3:04 pm

      Ku, I might think of being friends with those toadies – as long as they bring me back my puddle.

    Oh, no!!! Sweet Bongo those toadies took away your puddle…now that just was not nice at all. Maybe if you give them a good barking-to they will clear out of you space. Hugs and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      August 6, 2013 at 3:05 pm

      Mag and Chancy, that might be a good idea. I haven’t tried barking at them. I bet that would scare them away. But first, I’ve got to get them to bring back my puddle.

    Oh my word what are we going to do with these humans! Even the toadies are hiding from her

      Benny & Lily, my person really is full of mischief, isn’t she? Not only did she pull mischief on me but she scared those toadies. Every time she got close to them they hopped away as fast as they could. Pretty hard for a little toadie to do.

    Their little house is so sweet. I hope as soon as you got untied from the tree, you got to put your face in there and check it out.

    Love and licks,

    • Bongo

      Cupcake, my mischievous person wouldn’t allow any such thing. She made me walk around the toadie house and wouldn’t let me get near it.

    Well you won’t get your puddle back without some thunder. Sorry but it’s true.

    • Bongo

      August 6, 2013 at 9:24 pm

      Patricia, we got more thunder today. Maybe it zapped my puddle back where it’s supposed to be.

    That’s a lot of mischief for one day!!!!! I hope you managed to get home before any more rumble and thunder. As for your puddle, my instinct says it will be back soon!

    • Bongo

      August 6, 2013 at 9:26 pm

      Marina, the thunder never got loud but it did do that quiet, low rumbly sound for awhile.

      • marina kanavaki

        August 7, 2013 at 3:58 am

        I know, that low rumbly sound is creepy!

      • Bongo

        August 7, 2013 at 9:28 pm

        Marina, that low rumbly sound is really horrible. But it’s finally gone for a few days. My person says I’m a different dog. I’m not sure what she means. I’m still Bongo.

        …human talk, Bongo. Pay no attention!

    WoW…After ALL you have been through today…The nerve of those toadies stealing your puddle!
    We think you should give them a “what for”. Teach them that THIS is Bongos Puddle…Not theirs!

    • Bongo

      August 6, 2013 at 9:27 pm

      Alex, Trish, and Penny, I’m sure going to have to do something with those toadies.

      Mollie and Alfie, those toadies were everywhere. It was kind of fun seeing them hopping around.

    OMD! more toads!!!!! I don’t like Amphibias normally but these toads who are hanging around looks so cute!!! However please be careful Bongo…they might occupy your puddles!

    • Bongo

      August 7, 2013 at 9:30 pm

      Kevin, I’m still trying to get those toads to bring back my puddle. I’m not sure what they did with it.

    Toads? Hmmmmm… seems to me if they want water you should water them… after all its the nice thing to do.. muwahahahah _Ginger

    • Bongo

      August 11, 2013 at 1:04 pm

      Ginger, I think I could reach a few of those toadies with my water – even when I’m tied to that tree.
