Monster Outside

13 Feb

Bongo outside with glowing eyesSomething really scary happened at my house.

There was a monster outside in my yard.

He had glowing eyes and he beckoned me to come out with him.

I don’t know what he wanted to do to me, but there was no way I was going to hang out with that monster.

So I stayed inside.






Bongo looking like he doesn't know what to do

I stayed close to my dog jail so I could hide in there if I needed to.

But then that monster came closer.

He tried to get in the house.

He even scratched on the door.

This is getting really serious.

Bongo looking serious

What am I going to do!?

That monster is going to break through the door!

Then my person got up.

I tried to warn her but she went over to the door anyway.

And she opened it.

Yikes! Woof! Bark bark! Yeoww! Woo woo!

I gave that monster what for and then my person said the strangest thing.

That monster is not me!

How can that monster be me?

Look, I’m sitting here as perfect as can be.

Bongo looking kind

I’ve been here all the time.

And I did not put those scratches on that door.

You know there’s a monster out there.

      Ku, I wonder if we could make a scary haiku out of this. I have to hide in my dog jail to write it though – where I’m safe.

    that must have been scary.. I know you are brave Bongo.. I would have been scared also I think your person was saying it is your reflection which is very handsome. At least I think so.

      Fredrieka, I’m always brave – except when there are monsters about.

    Hmmm, Bongo, that monster seems to be a handsome guy – he looks somehow familiar to me! Perhaps you should try to smile at him.

    You are NOT a monster, B. That guy wants to come in and eat your face off. Stay by the jail, and then if you can lure him in, you can trap him in there. And show your person.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, that’s a great idea. Trapping that monster in dog jail. I just hope my person doesn’t decide to keep him for a pet.

    Oh yea! You are not a monster you are beautiful, it was just a reflection

      Thanks Patrecia. But I sure hope that’s not a reflection of me – because that reflection is pretty scary looking. Or wait – all the better to scare Scratchy with.

    I’m glad you gave that monster a what for, but be careful Bongo. You don’t want to end up being locked into your doggy jail.

      Kimberly, my person only locks me in when she’s leaving the house – or taking a shower – or… Maybe I’d better keep clear of my dog jail.

    Oh, Bongo, that monster is such a handsome guy. He looks somehow familiar to me! What about trying to smile at him?

    • Bongo

      Kolytyi, are you sure that monster wouldn’t bare his teeth at me?

    ACK! Monster! Hide!

    • Bongo

      February 13, 2014 at 2:51 pm

      Rumpy, if that monster comes around again can I hide at your house?

    Spooky, Bongo! That creature had glowing eyes! I could see some resemblance there – the ears, the figure maybe… but no. Couldn’t be you. After all if it was your reflection how did it leave? 🙂

      Marina, I haven’t figured out how that monster got in my yard yet. But I’m being really careful now when I need to go out at night.

    Seems your dog jail might have some good uses. Maybe your person is right to keep you safe in there when she isn’t around.

    • Bongo

      February 13, 2014 at 11:56 pm

      Patricia, either I can hide in there, or I can trap that monster in dog jail.

        Now there’s a thought!

    That “what-am-I-going-to-do” picture is the most intent look ever. Could this be Dr JeckleBongo and Mr HidenseekBongo?

      Karen, I’ve got to be that way because it makes life much more interesting.

    I like those cool eyes. I don’t see a monster

      Thanks Lily. I think I chased that monster away.

    I am bringing my flamethrower and we will teach that monster a lesson, we won’t even have to open the door! -Ginger

    • Bongo

      February 14, 2014 at 12:17 pm

      Great idea Ginger. Do you think you could leak some of those flames onto the Scratchy monster too? What!? Person, I didn’t say anything. You know I love Scratchy.

    Oh oh…I wonder why Scratchy put those scratches in the door?

    • Bongo

      February 14, 2014 at 5:25 pm

      Diane and Lola, that’s why Scratchy got his name. He lives up to it. I never thought he’d scratch up the door though.

    Oh no!!! How scary!!! I’m not good at those kind of stories…because I’m very coward…*blush* ….but…but…wait! The monster is really identical with you, Bongo…How could it be?!

    • Bongo

      February 15, 2014 at 9:39 pm

      Kevin, I think that monster is trying to trick my people by imitating me. That makes him all the more scarier.
