Get Serious!

03 Jan

Bongo looking seriousWhat do you mean, I have to get serious?

I don’t know how to be serious.

I know how to have adventures, and I know how to have fun – but serious?

Come on now.

Get serious! Oops, I mean – well, you know what I mean.

Oh, is that all you want me to do?

Okay, I can do that.

My person finally figured out that my 2013 blogging report was up.

I’ve made lots of good friends in the time I’ve been blogging, and I want to thank some special friends.

While I’ve made some new friends in the past year, it was really fun to find out that four out of my five top commenters were also in the top five last year, and in the exact same order. And number five has been a friend for a long time too.

So here they are:

Number five is Cupcake at Cupcake is a very cute therapy dog (don’t tell her but I’m kind of in love) who likes goose poop and dressing up.

Number four is the Collies at There are so many collies there I have trouble keeping track of them. I think their dad Chuck does too. But my favorite is Ginger, my best girlfriend; because I’m one of the key players in helping her achieve world domination.

Number three is Little Binky at It’s really hard to admit, but I’m good friends with a cat. Don’t tell Scratchy, the cat I live with. He might give me a bad time about it.

Number two is Kevin. Kevin is a Shiba-Inu from Japan who puts up with a lot of cats and is a great friend. Kevin doesn’t have his own blog, but you can find him on Twitter at

And number one is Marina at Marina is a wonderful artist and also a musician. You can see lots of her artwork on her blog. Oh yeah, and she sends me fish. Maybe only virtual fish, but I can still taste them in my imagination. Yum!

So what do I have to do now, person?

I have to do what?

Oh yeah, I almost forgot.

So this is for all my top commenting friends, but also for all of my friends who have ever commented on my blog – except maybe for the spam ones.

Thanks for the comments and for being my friends!

    Awwww…… it is all MY [and Loretta’s] pleasure, my dear Bongo. You deserve all the attention, hugs, kisses and fish of the world! You are the sweetest doggy! I am looking forward to another year of my daily Bongo doses! Big big kiss from me and your friend Loretta. 🙂

      Thanks Stelitta. I love adventures, but serious is something I don’t know anything about. And thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    That serious picture sure is something. If you were wearing a suit and tie I would think you were a stockbroker.. or maybe a James Bond type. Very handsome.

      Ooh, thanks Patricia. My person just got a suit and tie for my younger person. Maybe I should have her get me one too.

    We’re always in for a laugh, Bongo, and you’re letting us laugh every time we’re in the neighbourhood. I love to be your furriend. Now I have to check out Marina’s blog, maybe there’s some fishy left 😀 Double Pawkiss 🙂

      Little Binky, Marina is really generous with the fish. Tell her I sent you.

      Kolytyi, I don’t think I know how to be serious. Fun is better – and breaking the rules.
