A Good Day

09 Apr

Bongo in front of the fence he jumpedToday was a good day.

I had one of the most fun adventures I’ve had in a long time.

Here’s what happened.

My person let me outside this morning and it was a beautiful morning.

Warm and sunny.

I wanted to stay outside.

Usually my person won’t let me stay outside by myself, but I curled up in a sunny spot looking innocent and she let me this time.

Something about being too busy to chase me all over the yard.

Usually I don’t like it when she’s too busy, but sometimes busy can be a good thing.

So she went back in the house and I couldn’t resist.

You see that fence behind me?

I jumped it.

And I was free!

I wandered around the neighborhood having a great time.

I think I saw my person’s car driving by after awhile.

Guess I should head back closer to home.

Oh, here comes my person walking out of the house now.

Oh great! Time to play chase.

Come on person. I’m right here across the street.

Bongo on the corner of the street

I love it when she comes after me.

I stay just far enough away so she can’t get me.

And look, she’s so insecure she can’t go anywhere without that leash in her hand.

I don’t want it attached to me so I think I’ll go say hi to the neighbor.

I’m sure he’s good for some loves.

Hey wait neighbor. You didn’t tell me you were in cahoots with my person.

That old grabbing me by the collar trick.

I fall for it every time.

    OHHH BONGO! You really shouldn’t jump the fence. What if you got hit by a car? That would not feel to good.

    Bongo. Bongo Bongo.

      Kimberly, we live at the end of a “T” so nobody drives fast around here. But now my person won’t let me out in the yard by myself even for a minute. You’d think she’d understand that I know what I’m doing.

        I’m sure you do know what your doing Bongo, only, what if a coyote came out and found you outside of your yard, or a mean person picked you up because they thought you had lost your person?

        I think your person is just scared that she will lose you if you are outside of the yard. I know I’m scared I will lose Wall-E if he goes outside of our yard without tethered to him. Think about your Persons feelings Bongo. You wouldn’t want to make her sad would you?

    No, not a good day, a very naughty day and you deserve a wop! Bad things can happen to dogs that wander out of their garden.
    1 … you could get run over
    2… you could get stolen
    3…you could get lost
    4.. you could get captured and used for experiments.
    No, definitely not a good day. I am not at all surprised that your person does not trust are very naughty.

      Patrecia, I thought you were my friend. It sounds like you’ve been hanging out with my person.

      • misswhiplash

        April 9, 2014 at 1:27 pm

        I am your best friend and your greatest fan which is why I want to protect you. I would be very sad if something terrible happened to you and you could not write your blog anymore.Scratchy would have to do it instead

      • Bongo

        April 9, 2014 at 1:48 pm

        Patrecia, I guess I’ll have to stick around then to write my blog. Scratchy never does anything exciting so if he wrote the blog it would be really boring and nobody would want to read it.

        Precisely so no jumping fences

    Oh, Bongo… remember you are your person’s guardian angel and so is she to you. Never leave her unattended or without a leash! So many dangers out there! 😉

    • marina kanavaki

      April 9, 2014 at 11:29 am

      …and if that doesn’t mean much to you then maybe misswhiplash No4 should make you rethink!

      • Bongo

        April 9, 2014 at 12:12 pm

        Marina, that would only be good if they experimented with what kind of treats I like best.

        Ah, but we both know that’s not the case, don’t we?!

      • Bongo

        April 9, 2014 at 10:33 pm

        I guess I’d better let my person keep holding on to my leash.

    • Bongo

      April 9, 2014 at 12:09 pm

      Marina, I figured my person would be safe enough if I left her in the house. Problem is – she didn’t stay there.

    Oh momwithoutpaws had a fur baby once that used to do that she would take a squeak toy and a treat.. Rather than play chase. Worked every time. So far I do not run away .. Old Cissy does not either. I love being here and get nervous when I can not see momwithoutpaws. I would get grounded in my cage if I ran away.. Do not do that boy friend.

      Fredrieka, I always come back. Usually my person tricks me by getting into her car and opening the door near me. I can’t resist and I get right in. This time she couldn’t find me until she parked her car again. She should have known I’d come back.

      • fredrieka

        April 9, 2014 at 12:22 pm

        she loves you and never wants to take a chance. Stop being bad boy

    Have fun Bongo-but be careful you silly dog!! Your person was probably going frantic….

    • Bongo

      April 9, 2014 at 1:45 pm

      My person shouldn’t worry about me. I used to escape all the time. I always came back. She’s learned most of my tricks though and she hardly ever gives me a chance to escape anymore. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    OMGoodness, B. That story scared me. Plus I’m impressed that you are such a high jumper. I’m going to take a wild guess and say that you will probably NOT be allowed outside alone anymore. I’m glad you’re back home safe and sound, buddy. Whew!

    Love and licks,

    • Bongo

      April 9, 2014 at 1:47 pm

      Cupcake, this was one of the rare times I was allowed outside by myself. Something about me jumping the fence before. I don’t know what the problem is but I guess I won’t get another chance for a long time now.

    Wow! You can jump high! I’m good at frisbee jumping, but not fence jumping. I guess we are kind of different… I have to stay close to my mom all day long because if I don’t, those cats might take her over, and I can’t have that. So even if the front door is open all day long, I never go out it.
    BTW, I’m sure that you were just fine that whole time.

      That’s me Cooper the Cattledog in case you didn’t guess.

    • Bongo

      April 9, 2014 at 10:39 pm

      Cooper, I like frisbee jumping too and I didn’t know I was good at fence jumping until one time I was out in the yard and it started to thunder. I try to run away from thunder so I jumped the fence. Now I do it just for fun sometimes, but my person hardly ever lets me stay outside by myself. I don’t worry about the cats though. There are two visitor cats here right now besides Scratchy, but if they try to take over my person I’ll just give them what for. (P.S. I’ve never really hurt a cat.)

    You really should wait for your person before going out. I think she worries if your not close by!

    • Bongo

      April 10, 2014 at 11:08 am

      Dalton, I know my person depends on me, but sometimes I just need a break. I mean, people get days off from their jobs don’t they?

        Good point well made!!

    Please stay close to your person Bongo….we know you’re very adventurous, but there are some dangerous things without your person, so we don’t want to miss you!

    • Bongo

      April 10, 2014 at 11:09 am

      Kevin, I guess maybe I should train my person to be more adventurous with me. Like maybe she should jump the fence too.

    Bongo, I thought you had grown out of such silly behaviour! It is no wonder your person does not trust you out for long. Please stop it, before you make your person’s health deteriorate with worry! Naughty dog = no treats. Think about it.

    • Bongo

      April 10, 2014 at 11:10 am

      Susan, I guess I’d better behave. No treats would be the worst thing ever.

    Sounds like you had some fun, eh Bongo? Whee pigs also like to sneak into the neighbours back garden, though the rabbits are better at it, but since they blocked it up whee haven’t been able to.

    You came back safely and had some fun so where’s the harm? Just as long as you don’t do it again, eh? Luck might not be on your side!

      Pigs, I’d do it again if I got the chance. But my person has figured out most of my tricks and she doesn’t let me get away with it very often.
