The Visitor

19 May

Bongo in dog jail looking sadI’m not sure who was up to the most mischief today.

My person, or the visitor.

You see, my person saw a visitor in our driveway today and you know what she did?

She came in, got her camera, and locked me in jail!

You hear that?

She locked me in dog jail.

I wanted to visit the visitor, and she locked me in dog jail.



And then she went out to take pictures.

Sand snake near a tree

And what was that visitor doing in my yard?

And what was it doing hanging around waiting for my person to get her camera?

We’ve seen a couple snakes on my trails lately.

And my person used some excuse about them hiding before she could get her camera out, and she wouldn’t take any pictures.

But this snake – in my yard – hangs around waiting until my person gets back outside with her camera.

Without me.

I think my person and that snake had this all planned out.

Sand snake

Just wait till I get my paws on my person’s camera.

We’ll see who visits my yard then.

      I’ll either show my person – or that snake. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Your person will soon realise her wrong ways. How dare they scheme behind your back! (But that snake photo was pretty cool.)

      Epicaldragon, my person is so full of mischief sometimes. And now she has a sneaky snake helping her out.

      Lily & Edward, it was just a little snake. The frightening part is that my person and this snake seem to be conspiring against me.

    Yikes! That visitor doesn’t even look friendly! Sometimes dog jail is the place to be!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, I’m bigger than that snake. I’d chase it away – or play with it. And my person says it’s a harmless snake.

    Hey Bongo, did you ever find out what kind of snake it was?

    • Bongo

      May 19, 2014 at 4:43 pm

      Sandra, it’s called a sand snake. They’re little snakes. This is the biggest one my person has ever seen. And it’s harmless.

        It’s good you can tell the difference. If it wiggles around me, I run.

    If I lived in your house I would be in your locked cage too. I don, t like snakes one little bit. Beady eyes and a darty tongue and fabgs at the way….I would be in your locked cage pretty sharp

      Patrecia, we have lots of snakes here, but mostly you don’t see them. They should be called chickens instead of snakes because they’re always hiding. We only have two kinds of poisonous snakes here and I’ve never seen either of them on my trails.

        I don,t even like slow worms..which are snake like but not a snake…even garden worms give me the creeps but I accept those

    What can I say Bongo… when she could seize the opportunity to capture you and the visitor on an ensemble!!! Funny visitor by the way! 🙂

    • Bongo

      Marina, if I was out there I would have chased that visitor away. For some reason they’re scared of me. Actually they’re scared of my person too. When she went back out there with her camera it started crawling away. Or maybe it’s camera shy.

    I don’t like snakes. #truth

      Nel, most of the snakes around here slink off and hide as soon as they see you.

    OMD! A snake! Especially the one who is so colorful! Is he venomous? Snakes around your place are all colorful ones? *curious face*

    • Bongo

      May 20, 2014 at 2:24 pm

      Kevin, not all the snakes around here are colorful. And not all of them are venomous. This little one is called a sand snake and it’s harmless.

    Oh, sweet Bongo we are glad you were in jail and safe from that snake. If we had been there we would wanted to be in jail with you…safer there. Hugs and nose kisses

      Chancy and Mumsy, that might be fun. We could have a party in my dog jail. No cats allowed though.

    Bongo that is one scary visitor!

    • Bongo

      Marty, it’s just a harmless sand snake. I’m not sure why my person wouldn’t let me play with it.

    stupid snake… was it poisonous? If not then hunt it down and give it the what for…. -Ginger 🙂

    • Bongo

      May 27, 2014 at 11:12 pm

      Ginger, it’s not a poisonous snake. But those snakes are always sneaking off into holes. Maybe I could dig a few holes and uproot that snake.
