Jumping Dog

28 Feb

Bongo profile on the trailI’m sure you can tell by this picture that I’m a very calm, peaceful dog.

Those of you who know me know that I am anyway.

I never get in trouble. I never do anything wrong.

Sometimes I get blamed for things but it’s always Scratchy’s fault.

I’m the perfect dog.

But my person says I used to be different when they first got me.

I used to jump – a lot.


Well, I still jump sometimes but only when I want someone’s attention.

Especially if they are ignoring me.

But I think my person is mistaken about jumping a lot.

She says she has proof.

But you really can’t tell who that dog is in the video.

I think she blurred it on purpose so everybody would think it was me.

So check it out.

You can’t tell who that dog in the video is.

It is not me!

Watch it again.


Well, they left me outside and I had to see what I was missing out on.

      Patrecia, must be some other dog. I’ve never seen my ears flap.

        You would be very clever if you did

      Will and Eko, at the dog hotel they call me the happy jumping dog. I’m not sure where they got that from.

    Bongo, if that wasn’t you, then I think there was another dog in your yard. You should check that out. Though if that was taken a long time ago, he may have escaped.

      Kimberly, it must be that dog that I gave what for. I bet he’ll never come back.

    Dog incognito…but those ears do look familiar….
    (Wish Molly hadn’t seen the video – she thinks it’s contest for videos and is practicing now)

      Molly, want to have a jumping party? Oh wait. That wasn’t me. I don’t jump like that.

    Awwww…. That jumping dog seems lonely and curious and a little nutty. I wonder who it is…..

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, it’s some poor dog that was locked out of the house. I think I was inside watching it.

    Nope, definitely not you Bongo. I try hard not to jump, well actually I can’t really jump – what I can’t help myself from doing is jumping on Diane. She says I have to stop & I’m a lot better but I try so hard, it’s just that when we’re going for a walk or in the car I just get so excited. You know how it is, your butt gets that twitchy feeling and then it starts going all down into your feet and they just kind of do it all on their own.

      Lola, I know what you mean. There’s no controlling it when a jump comes on you.

    Quite a rhythm there! ‘Now you see me, now you don’t – Now you see me, now you don’t…” 🙂

      Marina, when you see me again will you let me in? Oh wait – I mean, that wasn’t me. But I guess you should let in that dog – whoever he is.

    Your person needs to get a door with a full length window!

      That would solve all his problems.

      Patricia, we have a screen door that’s got a full length window (I tore up the screen) but sometimes the door gets shut so I can’t peek in.

      Lily & Edward, I’m so glad you believe me.

    Since it NEVER happens that you are ignored by your person, therefore that dog cannot be you. I think it is Scratchy in disguise.

    • Bongo

      March 4, 2014 at 11:27 pm

      Kolytyi, you’ve figured it out. Scratchy is always the one who gets into mischief around here. I just get all the blame.

    My name is Pedro and am only 10mths old – I’ve got to say you jump really well. I can learn some stuff from you. Thanks for showing me the way.

    • Bongo

      Hi Pedro. I’m glad you learned something. I’ll be glad to teach you how to get into mischief too. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Wow! You would get a Gold Medal if you joined the Olympic! 🙂

    • Pedro

      March 3, 2014 at 8:09 pm

      You are very good – definite gold medal stuff.

    • Bongo

      March 4, 2014 at 11:31 pm

      Kevin, they must have Olympics for dogs. I’ll have to find that jumping dog and enter him.

    Clearly that isn’t you, but the dog that looks like you but isn’t you does have some mad jumping skills and fab flappy ears!!

      March 4, 2014 at 11:49 pm

      Dalton, I’ll tell that other dog you said so.
