Half a Walk

18 Sep

Profile of Bongo on the trailSometimes I just can’t figure people out. They just don’t make any sense.

I started taking my person for a walk and we had hardly gotten out on my trails when she said, “We have to go back.”

What gives? We never go on this short of a walk. If she’s in this much of a hurry she just lets me out in the back yard.

My person said something about frozen food she left in the trunk.

I don’t know what she’s worried about. That food will still be in the trunk when we get back from our walk.

And if it stops being frozen and she doesn’t want it any more, I’ll eat it.

That food’s not going to go to waste.

As long as it’s not frozen olives in the trunk, that is. I won’t eat those in any way, shape, or form.

But I’ll eat all the other not frozen food.

So don’t worry person. We can go on our walk, and I’ll take care of the food when we get back home.

Well, my person wouldn’t go for it and we had to go back.

She got all the food out of the trunk and put it away – and then she said since we’d already had part of a walk and she had to be somewhere soon, we could only go on half a walk.

You should have left that food up to me, person.

I was really getting frustrated with my person until we got back from our half a walk.

Not only had she gone to the frozen food store, she’d gotten me something special at the pet store.

She got me an antler.

I needed one of those.

Maybe we should go on half a walk more often.

      Antlers are the best. I chewed my last one to a little bit and then I think Scratchy must have hid the rest under the couch because it disappeared.

      Benny & Lily, I would have a good, long talk with my person – but I’m too busy chewing on my antler.

    Antler! Great bonus. I like to smell them at the pet store, but I don’t chew things, so I’ve never actulally had one of my own.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, you should try one sometime. They’re really great to chew on. And my person thinks it’s probably good for my teeth too. At least that’s what the package said.

      Marina, it’s been a long time since I had one of these. I chewed the last one to a little bit and then Scratchy must have hidden it under the couch because it disappeared.

      Luke, the long walks are always best because I like to make several stops along the way.

      Ku, it’s been a long time since I’ve had an antler. But now that I have a new one it’s definitely your turn to get one too.

    Short walks are just torture huh?

    Stop on by for a visit

      Kari, short walks are never long enough. I think I’ll demand a double walk tomorrow.

    I’m sorry about your short walk… but it’s better than no walk at all! And OMG an antler. You Bongo are a lucky dog!
    Hopefully your person will have more time soon to give you lengthy fun (not in the dark) walks 🙂

      Viciously Sweet, I’m going to put in for a double walk tomorrow – just as soon as I finish chewing on my antler.

    Me and my new sister are still waiting to go on walks. I’ve had my last vaccination today so just another week to go for me. Unfortunately my new sister won’t be able to go for another 3 weeks so I suppose I’ll have to wait as well.

    Those antler things look nice though.

      Freda, antlers are the best. Maybe you can talk your people into getting you one while you wait to go on walks. I hope you get to go on walks soon though. They’re second best. Or maybe third. Food is way up there somewhere. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    oh bongo, so sorry you had your walk cut short. I’m sure your human had a good reason though. 🙂

      Geraldine and Mr. Ched, my person was trying to pull that “busy” thing again. I wish she’d get over that.

    How lucky you are!!! “Half a walk” = “Antler” sounds great!!! 🙂

      Kevin, one of the best things about antlers is they last a lot longer than any walk.

    Bongo, then that short walk was worth it after all. That’s a delicious reward 🙂

      Little Binky, antlers are so awesome. And they last a long time so I don’t have to go begging for more.
