Worn Out Walk

02 Oct

Bongo moping along the trailYesterday my person took me to the dog park – with her camera. She wanted to take pictures of motion, so I ran and jumped and moved every way I could think of.

I worked really hard.

And today I’m worn out.

My feet hurt, my muscles are sore, and all I want to do is sleep.

But my person wanted to go for a walk.

How can I say no to a walk?

I hope my person understands though, and lets me have extra sniffing time so I can rest.


Bongo sniffing a bush

Hey person, this is my favorite spot.

Bongo near a rock

My message rock.

I need to stop and sniff rest here for awhile.

Bongo reluctantly coming

Okay, I’m coming. But I hope you know that you’re wearing me to the bone.

Bongo plodding along on the trail

I can hardly go any further. At least we’re on our way back home.

Wait a minute! You mean I have to go uphill to get back home?

Bongo plodding along uphill

I don’t remember this hill ever being here before.

I don’t believe it!

I’m all worn out from helping my person yesterday and what does she do?

She puts a hill in my way.

      Thanks Patrecia. It’s nice to have somebody feel sorry for me. I think my person is only pretending to feel sorry.

    Oh, poor thing! I’d expect you’d have royal treatment today after all the work you did…
    At least I hope that by now you are fast asleep in your cozy bed! 🙂

      Marina, I’m waking up long enough to answer your comment. Then I’m going right back to sleep. ZZZZZZ

    Poor Bongo Baby, you need a vacation.

      Diane, I think I need a vacation from the vacation I had at the dog park the other day. It wore me out – but I’m ready to go back any time.

    You work like a dog for this person. I hope she appreciates you.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, I don’t think I’m appreciated enough. I mean, who would put a hill in my way when I’m already worn out.

    Awww Bongo, you have to practice your jumps more often, to built up the condition…but for now, take a rest and sleep well, Buddy 🙂

      Little Binky, it’s been a sleepy day today. Really what happened is somehow I hurt a couple of my feet at the dog park. It couldn’t possibly have been from jumping on them.

    Bongo, Justus really needs a very long walk, too. Hope to take him tomorrow while you recover from your strenuous exercise. Be well, B-dog!

      Justus, you can do some extra walking for me while I rest.

    You look a little tired Bongo….very different from those of you from yesterday’s motion pictures…
    You must need some rests, Bongo. hugs

      Kevin, I’m finally getting rested up. I think it’s time to go back to the dog park.

    You are so lucky to have such gorgeous surroundings to explore. I always enjoy seeing cacti in your pictures – it reminds me of cowboy movies 🙂

      Bassa, a lot of those cowboy movies were made right here in Sedona. My younger person didn’t appreciate the cacti today though. He got some pricklers stuck in his jeans. At least they didn’t go all the way through.

    OMG, Bongo, have you been pursued by a wildboar or a peccary?? There was a black monster behind you!
    I think you missed the stretching after your athletics activities. Here you can find a lot of exercises but I cannot find the doggy versions: This is scandalous!

    • Bongo

      October 5, 2013 at 9:25 pm

      Kolytyi, I’ll have to look for the doggy stretching version. That must have been a javelina behind me. Yikes! I didn’t notice it until you said something. Javelina is the name for peccaries here.
