Homework at the Dog Park

01 Oct

Bongo carrying a Frisbee in his mouthI take everything back that I said about my person’s new camera. At least for now.

And here’s why.

My person’s photography class assignment for this week is “Motion.”

And who could come up with something more filled with motion than me?

So I got to go to the dog park today, where there’s lots of room to move.

And my person brought Frisbees and balls along – and her camera.

When we first got to the dog park there was one other dog hanging out. And it turned out to be my good buddy Pablo. I think my person planned that because she didn’t seem surprised.

But then my girlfriend Layla arrived. A regular dog party!

After I got done sniffing around I had to get to work. And it was the most fun work I’ve done in a long time. I guess it will work better if I just show you.

And they even gave me a place to wash off afterwards.

    What a seriously active model you are, Bongo, you rock! And about time you had some serious fun instead of ahem mischief …..

      Thanks Susan. If my person would let me have this kind of fun every day I wouldn’t have any energy left for mischief.

      Lexie and Mica, I have to agree that sometimes cameras are good. I just wish I could make all the decisions on the photo excursions.

    Wow! You have some pretty cool moves, Bongo. The camera got ’em perfectly. I especially like the one with your shadow.

    Great photos. It looks so much like fun. My dogs tell me now to take some photo lessons.

      Stanze, make sure if you take photo lessons that all your homework assignments involve taking pictures of your dogs.

    I am in awe of you, B!! You are like Bongo The Amazing Flying Doggie! Good work from your person and her camera, too. She was looking for Motion, and she captured it PERFECTLY!

    Love and licks,

      Thanks Cupcake. I’m the Master of Motion. Hey, maybe I should get a new hat for that. Or maybe not – it would probably fall off.

    Wow Bongo. Your mom got some great shots of you at the dog park. Sammy and Lacey love going to the DP as well

    • Bongo

      October 1, 2013 at 11:16 pm

      Thanks Sherrell. I don’t get to go to the dog park often because we live walking distance from a trail so that’s where we usually go. It was a special treat for me to get to go.

    Wow – you can jump high Bongo! I personally don’t jump…something about a heavy load in my back end … Lola

    • Bongo

      October 2, 2013 at 11:19 am

      Lola, I love to jump. It’s one of my specialties. I’d be glad to do the jumping for both of us.

    Bravo!!! *pawapplause* I’m sure that your person will get the highest score for her homework!!! Those pictures are amazing! You look so dynamic!!! You’re one of the coolest dogs in the world! Especially love those 2nd, 3rd and 4th pictures! 🙂

      October 2, 2013 at 11:22 am

      Thanks Kevin. When I go to the dog hotel they call me the happy jumping dog. I live to jump. But you’re pretty cool too, Kevin.

    It’s a bit pity that your person needs special aids to discover your fantastic abilities – but in the end, she did it! I think all dog girls and dog ladies are mesmerized at the dog park as well as in the blogosphere!

    • Bongo

      October 2, 2013 at 11:27 am

      Kolytyi, maybe I should put on a regular jumping show. But not too often. Now my feet hurt.

    Wow, Bongo, I’m impressed of your jumps and of the pictures your person made 🙂

    Brilliant photos, how clever is your person? When typists takes pictures of me moving she usually gets a blur!!

      Dalton, I think my person has a really good photography teacher. He taught her how to do it.
