Come and Get Me

03 Feb

Bongo refusing to budgeHey person, you can’t put these pictures on my blog.

Everyone’s going to see how much I’ve messed up messy your yard is.

I only claim the yard when it’s not messed up.

So anyway, it’s Monday Mischief Day and my younger person is always pulling mischief on me.

He’s always leaving and going to that college place.

So I decided I would start pulling mischief on him.

If I’m out in the yard when my younger person is home and my person wants me to come in I run off.

Bongo running off

Now, I know that sounds like I’m pulling mischief on my person instead of my younger person.

But that’s not the case at all.

You see, I refuse to come in until my younger person comes out to get me.

Because that means he has to get up from whatever he’s doing and come outside.

And he usually grumps about it too.

But I’m really doing him a favor.

He needs the exercise and fresh air.

Sure, I’ll come in for you –

If you let me take you for a walk.

    OMG, Bongo, I hope that thingy is not the foundation of an outdoor dog jail?

      Kolytyi, it’s just the empty garden. The stakes were from a fence that used to be there to keep me out. Oh wait. I think that’s what they’re from. Now you’ve got me worried.

      Patrecia, it’s so much fun getting people to come after me.

    Oh Bongo. You’re such a good, thoughtful dog. I hope your younger human knows how good he has it.

      FleaByte, my younger person doesn’t appreciate me at all – but some day he’ll figure it out.

    Your only thinking of younger persons health aren’t you Bongo! That’s such a good boy!

    It sounds like you’ve got this all worked out Bongo. I’m glad that you’re thinking of your younger person too & he might grumble but I’ll bet he appreciates your thoughtfulness.

      Diane, my younger person doesn’t appreciate it – but someday he’ll look back and realize what a good dog I’ve been to give him all this exercise.

    Excellent work Bongo, making younger person get off his behind so you can take him on a walk! Fresh air is good for every being.

    • Bongo

      February 3, 2014 at 10:52 pm

      FireBonnet, you are so right. My younger person spends far too much time inside.

    That’s great mischief! At the end of it all you get to go for a walk. My kind of mischief.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, that’s the best kind of mischief there is. Especially if you have adventures while you’re out walking.

    Our backyard is a muddy mess right now – just swept off the patio (as if that’s gonna help). Keep away is a brilliant idea…prefer it played by 2 dogs, though – not when it’s time to get your feet wiped off and come inside!

    • Bongo

      February 3, 2014 at 10:54 pm

      Karen, I wish I could play muddy keep away with Molly and The German. That sounds like fun.

      • philosophermouseofthehedge

        February 4, 2014 at 9:58 am

        Oh, the German is back home. Both are exhausted, but missing the companionship…we may have to do Face Time with them…and more rain. May play outside tomorrow if it’s sunny and just get a bath afterwards ( don’t tell!)

    Yes, my dear Bongo… that’s the way to do it! He will get it eventually! 🙂
    [missed your |mischief| err stories, sweet Bongo – I’ll go back to check what else you’ve been up to!]

    • Bongo

      February 3, 2014 at 10:55 pm

      Marina, I’m so glad you’re back. I missed you. Did you get all moved?

      • marina kanavaki

        February 4, 2014 at 2:02 am

        🙂 Yes, all – Loretta included! She sends slobbery kisses from her new abode. She says it’s even cozier than the previous one. [a princess has got to get her beauty sleep!] 🙂

        February 4, 2014 at 10:54 am

        So glad Loretta is happy. I’m sending some slobbery kisses back.

        shlrp shlrp shlrp… Don’t ask me, it’s her response! I think it’s some more kisses! 🙂

    They are very lucky to have you keeping them fit and healthy!!

      Dalton, I don’t know what they’d ever do without me.

    What a good boy you’re Bongo! You try to let your younger person exercise for his health! Sedona where you live has a wonderful scenery, so it will be a shame if you miss it! Yes humans need more exercise like us dogs!

    • Bongo

      February 4, 2014 at 11:11 am

      Kevin, I think that’s one of our main jobs. To make sure our people get their exercise. And especially around here. I heard that it’s pretty at that college place where my younger person goes – but not anything like Sedona.

    Mischief is actually fun

    • Bongo

      February 4, 2014 at 11:11 am

      Lily, I totally agree. Life might be kind of boring without mischief.

      Chancy and Mumsy, it’s one of my jobs to make sure my people get their exercise. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.
