The Swimming Hole

12 Sep

Bongo in a swimming holeI found it! I found it!

No, I didn’t find that. I’m still looking for the dry wash on my trails and it hasn’t shown up anywhere.

But I found a swimming hole. Where the dry wash used to be.

I’ve never found a swimming hole on my trails before.

And now I can do one of my favorite things to do.



Bongo splashing the water

Splashing the water into the air and catching it in my mouth.

Person, they can’t tell what I’m doing in a picture.

Why didn’t you take a video? I’ve always wanted to be in the movies.

But there’s one problem with this swimming hole.

Bongo in a swimming hole that's too small to swim in

I can’t swim in my swimming hole.

It’s not big enough.

I guess it’s not enough to ask for a swimming hole.

I have to say what size I want too.

It’s not my fault.

Swimming holes are for swimming in. Doesn’t that mean they’re supposed to be big enough to swim in?

Okay, next time I ask for a swimming hole I’ll ask for one I can actually swim in.

Bongo looking like he doesn't want to get out of the water

What do you mean, I have to get out now?

This might be a too small swimming hole, but it’s still my swimming hole.

I wanna stay.

    That swimming hole is the perfect size to stand in, and splash in, but that’s it. I think if it gets big enough for swimming, there will be a whole new set of problems…..

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, I guess if there was actually enough water to swim in my dog friends who live next to this wash might also be swimming in their back yard.

      Patrecia, splashes are good. Especially when I can catch the water in my mouth.

      Selima, my mischief is why my person let me start this blog in the first place. I’m full of it. Mischief, that is. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

      Little Binky, I think you’re right. My own personal jacuzzi. It even had water running in and out of it to stir things up.

      Benny & Lily, maybe I should splash my person then. At least she’d be wet too.

    Of course you wanna stay!
    What, you mean your person doesn’t want to join you?!
    tsk tsk humans! 🙂

      Marina, maybe my person thought the swimming hole was too small for both of us. I could have moved over for her.

    That looks like a great paddling pool! 🙂

      Bassa, I’d ask you to join me for some paddling but I think the two of us would push all the water out of it.

    Any luck with your search for a bigger one?

    • Bongo

      Agata, I’m still looking. I think I might have to expand my search to a new set of trails.

    Bongo, when she says its time to go just yank hard on the leash.. then she can join you in the swimming hole… hehehe _ginger

      Ginger, that’s a great idea. Then I could get her camera and take pictures of her.

    Wow! Splashing the water into the air and catching it in your mouth sounds fun! I’d love to do that!
    Hmmmm…yes, you’re right, it’s not big enough to swim in….but looks like “hot spring” or “spa” if the water was warm enough, which is popular in Japan. 🙂

      Kevin, my person says there are hot springs or spas in the States too, but not close to my trails. Maybe the sun will come and warm the water in my little swimming hole. In the meantime I’ll keep splashing up the water.

    I think this is a beautiful dog-jacuzzi! It’s perfect! You need only a swimming pool and then you can relax in it after a pleasing swim!

    • Bongo

      September 15, 2013 at 11:59 am

      Kolytyi, maybe I can dig a big hole in my backyard and put water in it for a swimming pool. Then when I’m tired of swimming I’ll run to my trails and jump in the jacuzzi. Woo woo!
