National Dog Day

26 Aug

Bongo with a tennis ball in his mouthToday is National Dog Day. But since some of my friends live in different countries, it’s also called International Dog Day. That should take care of everybody.

Since this is a special holiday for me and all my dog buddies I think we ought to celebrate.

I’ve been thinking all week of what I’m going to do for National Dog Day.

First, I’m going to banish all the thunder for the day. I might need God’s help for that, but I’m sure He’ll understand. After all, I don’t think He’d want me to be frightened on my special day.

Then, I’m going to go for a long walk – and I’ll find that my puddle has grown so big that I can go swimming in it.

Then, when I get back home I’m going to eat lots of treats.

I might even eat some ice cream.

By then, I’m sure I’ll be so tired that I’ll be ready for a nice, long nap.

And you know what I’m going to do while I’m taking that nap?

I’ll be dreaming about what I’m going to do for National Dog Day next year.

Maybe I’ll adopt a puppy.

      Patrecia, we’re only a one dog, one cat household and I still can’t talk my person into getting a puppy for me to play with.

      Cupcake, I still have to come up with another idea – how to convince my person that getting a new puppy is important.

    Happy doggy day, Bongo!
    I notice you left out a couple of things you’d do on this day
    1. you obviously mean FISH and treats!
    2. we all know where that lovely nap will take place, don’t we?!!!
    Enjoy your day, Bongo, although for you guys -speaking about your girlfried over here too- every day is Dog Day!!!

    • Bongo

      August 26, 2013 at 10:01 pm

      Sorry Marina, I forgot to specify fish when I said treats. But God wasn’t cooperating with me for Dog Day. We got thunder.

        He probably got carried away with fireworks celebrating your day…

    National Dog Day? How could we have missed that! Sounds like you’re planning a great day. 🙂

      BZ, put it on your calendar for next year. We can have a big dog party.

    Sounds like the perfect way to spend doggy day to me!

    • Bongo

      August 27, 2013 at 11:53 am

      Misaki, it didn’t quite go as I’d planned – but there’s always next year.

    Roooo sounds like you have a pawsome plan in place buddy! *Waggy tail*

      Alfie, the best laid plans fall apart sometimes – but I’m already working on next year.

    Looks like you had a fun filled day Bongo!!!
    We had fun too at our park…running and saying hi to all the kids at school… 😉

    • Bongo

      August 27, 2013 at 11:57 am

      Penny, that’s so cool that you get to hang out with the kids at school. Sometimes the kids find their way to my trails, but only a few of them.

    AWWW, if you could find a puppy on your trails or in your puddle! You could save him and it would be no question whether you could keep him!

    • Bongo

      August 27, 2013 at 12:02 pm

      Kolytyi, I hope that happens. So far all the puppies and dogs on my trails have brought their people along with them. The only things I’ve found around my puddle are the toadies and they’re too little to play with – although I bet Scratchy would have fun with them.

    So cute Bongo is, did not know he likes to swim. 🙂 lots of rain there.

    • Bongo

      August 27, 2013 at 12:03 pm

      Daydreamer, swimming is one of my favorite things to do – but I hardly ever get to go somewhere with a swimming hole.

    Hey Bongo,

    That’s an awesome idea dude, you’d love having a puppy around! Glad you had fun!

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Bongo

      August 27, 2013 at 12:05 pm

      Snoopy, it would be so great to have a puppy to play with. Now I just have to convince my person.

    Happy National Dog Day, Bongo! Wow! It’s our day! Horray! and what a lovely idea to have a puppy and you would be the puppy’s dad! (hee hee…) I’m sure you will be a great papa, Bongo! 🙂

    • Bongo

      August 27, 2013 at 12:06 pm

      Kevin, happy International Dog Day to you. I’m still trying to convince my person about that puppy thing.

    Now that’s a puddle! Great way to spend the best dog day!

    • Bongo

      August 27, 2013 at 9:05 pm

      Karen, I just wish there were more puddles like that where I live.

    Well, you’ve got yourself the best Dog Day of I’ve never seen your puddle so high, Bongo, the toads must have had a spell on it. Sleep tight 🙂

    • Bongo

      August 30, 2013 at 5:23 pm

      Little Binky, I’m not sure what those toads did – but after they did it they left. I haven’t seen them since my puddle came back a few days ago.
