The Inside of the Packages

30 Oct

Bongo next to a small packageIt’s been forever. Forever!

Some packages came for me and I’ve been waiting to see what’s inside – but my person wouldn’t let me open them.

It’s been terrible, having to wait.

But finally, she said I could open them.

The big one! I want to open the big one first.

What? I have to open the little one first?

This better be a two for one deal. I get to open both of them.




Bongo with a new Kong

I don’t believe it! I got a Kong!

This is the best thing ever because treats show up inside Kongs.

I used to have one of these a long time ago but I took it out in the yard and it never came back in.

No going out in the yard for you new Kong. I hope those treats show up inside you soon.

I get to open my other package now? The great big one?

Bongo by a large box

Can I wait for the treats to show up in my Kong first?

Oh, I get it. All the treats for my Kong are in that box. Woo woo!


Wait a minute!

This isn’t a box full of treats.

It’s a dog jail!

Bongo looking in his new crate

There must be some mistake. This must be for some other dog.

If I get locked in here I can’t steal the cat food.

Or mess up my person’s bed.

Or try to break out of the house during a thunderstorm.

Bongo wanting out of his crate

Let me out of this thing!

Bongo looking sad in dog jail

What am I going to do now? I’m in jail in my own house.

This is going to spoil all my fun.

Hey, wait a minute. I’m not alone in here.

Bongo licking his Kong in his dog jail

I wonder what my Kong did to get locked in jail with me.

And there’s treats inside!

    If you have to be in jail, nice to be in jail with treats!

      Will and Eko, it’s been a real challenge for me. I don’t want to go into that dog jail – but I can’t resist the treats.

    Maybe your person will put a soft bed in your jail. Besides, your person probably only wants to keep you safe during thunderstorms. I mean they are pretty scary, and LOUD!

    Wall-E says he is sorry there wasn’t a big bully stick in there, but maybe if your good about being in your jail, which his Mommy says means, no whining, then maybe your person will get you one. If you can’t have a bully stick though, at least you have the next best thing… a KONG!

      Oh! Wall-E had another thought he just told me to share. He says and I quote.. “Maybe your person got you a jail so you CAN go on some adventures with her that you normally wouldn’t have been able to go on before. You know.. like that last adventure with the dirt road?”

      • Bongo

        October 30, 2013 at 11:04 am

        That might be embarrassing letting everyone see me in jail.

    • Bongo

      October 30, 2013 at 11:03 am

      Wall-E and Kimberly, my person says she wants to protect the house from me during thunderstorms. So she shouldn’t make me go in there the rest of the time. But maybe I can talk her into getting me one of those bully sticks.

    Oh my goodness Bongo…this is terrible..absolute can such a thing happen?
    It is bad enough when you go to dog hotel but yo be inprisoned in your own home…no , no, it must not happen!
    Now the Kong is a great idea..we used to have one of those, but like got lost.
    Have fun with the Kong but stay away from that metal, iron, steel barred box..

    • Bongo

      October 30, 2013 at 11:06 am

      Patrecia, I might have to hide my Kong so my person won’t put it in the dog jail. I keep taking it out and she keeps putting it back in.

    Oh, Noooooo not the jailhouse!!!!! I hope that it gets lots and lots of Kong refills [and a nice comfy pillow…. Blast, it looks pretty rigid too!

    • Bongo

      October 30, 2013 at 9:54 pm

      Marina, it’s terrible. And every time my person wants me in it I’m so conflicted. I don’t want to get locked in, but I want those treats so bad. It does have my bed in it now.

        I’m drooling already. Woo woo!

    GAH!! I KNEW it!! A dog jail. And no iphone to call a friend to come and get you out, or order a pizza. Oh well. The treat filled Kong is the next best thing. Good luck, buddy.

    Love and licks,

    • Bongo

      October 30, 2013 at 9:55 pm

      Cupcake, you warned me this is what it would be. I should have listened to you and never opened that package.

    It’s all in the perspective, Bongo! Consider it a nice, cozy, SAFE den for you to retreat to when there’s a storm. And hey, maybe you’ll be as excited to go into your DEN with a kong as our girl is when she gets a delicious frozen-peanut butter filled kong in hers. Our baby RUNS into her den to devour her kong!

    • Bongo

      October 30, 2013 at 10:02 pm

      Frozen peanut butter sounds great. I’ll have to tell my person to stick my Kong in the freezer. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Maybe it isn’t a jail. Maybe it is your very own private safe place. If your person gets you a nice pillow and blanket you might sleep through those ugly thunderstorms.

    • Bongo

      October 30, 2013 at 10:04 pm

      Patricia, do you think it will protect me from those storms? If that’s the case I’m all in.

      • Patricia

        October 31, 2013 at 2:52 pm

        Yes I do. They may still be loud but you will be perfectly safe in your very own bedroom.

    Looks like a pretty neat jail, and if you get treats I would definitely claim it as your own and not let anyone else in!

    • Bongo

      October 31, 2013 at 9:01 pm

      Dalton, after I finish my treats I think Scratchy should go in there instead.

      • Dalton

        November 1, 2013 at 2:03 am

        but he would leave his catness all over it and it’s yours!

      • Bongo

        November 1, 2013 at 9:03 pm

        Oh yeah, I guess so. Scratchy, get out of there!

    My dog has doggy jail to but he likes it, he has plankets and pillows and it’s his batchelor pad. Maybe you will enjoy your doggy jail after a while 🙂

    • Bongo

      October 31, 2013 at 9:02 pm

      Daydreamer, so far I only like the treats in it – but I really don’t like hanging out there.

    We had a feeling it may have been a jail cell

    • Bongo

      October 31, 2013 at 9:02 pm

      Lily, it’s terrible! I hope this is just a passing fad and my person will get tired of it really soon.

    OMD! *gasps* Why you’re in the jail Bongo? It looks like our kitties’ jails that our kitties always sleep inside them at night because they are too mischivous to stay free! You, too Bongo?

    • Bongo

      October 31, 2013 at 9:04 pm

      Kevin, at least my person still lets me sleep in her room at night, but every time she leaves the house she makes me go in dog jail. She says that’s when I’m mischievous. I don’t think I do anything wrong.

  12. Andrea

    Everyone at our house LOVES to be in jail except the Lay (Leia). She prefers to poop on our carpet when no one is home and run toilet paper all over the house. Why be good when there aren’t humans around to stop you?!

    • Bongo

      October 31, 2013 at 9:05 pm

      Andrea, that’s what I say. I only do things when nobody’s watching. I can’t get in trouble that way. But now I can’t do anything – until I figure out how to get out of this dog jail, that is.

    Oh, NOOOOOOOO!!!! Get the key, Bongo, quickly!!!!!

    • Bongo

      October 31, 2013 at 9:07 pm

      Kolytyi, I’ve been trying to figure out where my person hides the key, but she’s tricky.

    Kook kong Bongo. I had one but somehow it got stuck way up in a tree. Diane says I have to wait for a storm to blow it down but, well you know what happens during storms! I’m sorry about the jail buddy but I’m calling my dog lawyer for you right now…let’s see…Dewey, Cheatem, and How…

    • Bongo

      October 31, 2013 at 9:13 pm

      Lola, I think those Kongs have a mind of their own, but so far mine’s staying in the jail – except when I take it out, that is. I’m glad you’re calling a dog lawyer for me, but do you think maybe you could try a different one?

  15. dianeskitchentable

    October 31, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    That was supposed to be kool Kong.

    We know it will be hard to get use to at first, but then you should think of it as a special place no one else is allowed. We have had one since puppies and love out special den. That the first place Mica heads during that awful Thunder

    • Bongo

      November 1, 2013 at 9:02 pm

      Lexie and Mica, I sure hope it helps during thunder. My person says that’s the main reason she got it for me.

    Dog jail? I am gearing up quicker for the dog revolution than ever now…..

    • Bongo

      November 26, 2013 at 11:59 am

      Ginger, I’m with you. As soon as I break out of this jail.
