Famous Gizmo

11 Aug

Bongo digging inWe had a horrendous thunder storm today so I wouldn’t couldn’t go on my walk.

I think my person was too scared of the thunder so I didn’t want to take a chance and take her.

I thought I would be nice to her and keep her safe at home.

So to pass the time I started looking at a magazine.

National Geographic.

And I learned something I never knew before.



Gizmo is famous.

Gizmo sitting up with his legs out

He not only has his picture on my blog, but he has a full page in National Geographic.

Don’t tell him that I’m a little bit jealous.

If he knew that I’d never hear the end of it.

And if you don’t believe me you can check out the online picture of Gizmo here:

What? You don’t think this looks anything like Gizmo?

That’s gotta show what happens when a little fame goes to your head.

    Just be careful Bongo. You don’t want to start looking like Gizmo anyways.

    And it was really nice of you to try to keep your person safe.

      Thanks Kimberly. And for sure I don’t want to look like Gizmo. He’s a fat cat.

    Amazing what a little photoshop can do! 😆
    Meantime, you are such a gallant doggy Bongo, keeping your person safe indoors! 🙂

      Marina, I might have to keep my person inside all this week. Poor person. She’s going to miss her walks. But while I’m inside, I wonder if I could Photoshop Gizmo to make him look like a dog.

    Snorts. You are too funny my friend. Just don’t let Gizmo find that link or he might try to get even. PLOL (piggy laughing out loud). XOXO – Bacon

      Bacon, what Gizmo doesn’t know won’t hurt him.

        This is true and trust me pal – I’m not telling! Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    in the picture you did not look happy at all

    • Bongo

      August 11, 2014 at 1:21 pm

      Fredrieka, don’t tell anyone, but I tell my person she can’t go out in thunder because I don’t like it. It’s downright scary!

        It bothers old Cissy but not me so much as long as momwithoutpaws gets nervous I do good

    Gizmo looks to be in deep thought so be on the look out Bongo…there could be some retaliation coming your way. Look out for those claws! Hugs and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      August 11, 2014 at 1:22 pm

      Chancy, I’ll keep my eye on Gizmo for sure. He’s usually up to no good anyway. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    Bongo, you are such a thoughtful dog taking care of person. ANd person knows who the REAL celebrity is – don’t worry

    • Bongo

      August 11, 2014 at 1:23 pm

      Thanks Karen. I’m sure my person really appreciates me this time of year – protecting her from thunder and all.

    You are awful, poor Gizmo. Although the monkey is very cute , nearly, but not quite as cute as you

    • Bongo

      August 11, 2014 at 1:24 pm

      Monkey? What monkey? I’d better get over to Bongo’s blog and check this out. Bongooooo! You are so in trouble now. -Gizmo

    It’s always up to a sibling to keep another sibling in line!

    • Bongo

      August 11, 2014 at 1:25 pm

      Will and Eko, I’m making sure to keep Gizmo in line. He’s always up to something.

    Some sibling rivalry?

    • Bongo

      August 11, 2014 at 1:27 pm

      Talent Hounds, you can’t possible think Gizmo and I are siblings. We don’t look anything alike. Gizmoooo! Are you telling everybody we’re related?

    You trying to fool us with that photo Bongo? I like the pic of the real Gizmo, he’s cute…..but not as cute as you!
    I see you are protecting your mom from all the rain – betcha Gizmo wouldn’t do that for your mom!

    • Bongo

      August 11, 2014 at 9:30 pm

      Barbara, I’m surprised Gizmo doesn’t run out in the rain and make my person chase him. But he just stays in the house and plots against me.

    Gizmo has really changed a LOT with this fame. I have to say, I liked him better in the before picture at your house.

    Love and licks,

    • Bongo

      August 11, 2014 at 9:31 pm

      Cupcake, I do have to admit that Gizmo was cuter before he got famous.

    ha. Bailey thinks it looks like Gizmo too.

    • Bongo

      August 11, 2014 at 9:32 pm

      Bailey is very wise.

      Marty, you’ve got to be silly when you’re the only dog among two cats.

      Lily & Edward, I’m going to find a way to get Bongo back for this. -Gizmo

    Hee hee hee….Gizmo…what a celebrity he is! I knew it! I knew that he is not an ordinary cat!
    I think that I should get his pawtograph before he becomes much more famous! 🙂

    • Bongo

      August 12, 2014 at 1:29 pm

      Kevin, don’t tell Bongo but I’m sending my pawtograph your way. Wait! What did Bongo say I looked like? I’ gonna get him! Bongooooo!

    Wow-they’re almost identical! 😀

    • Bongo

      August 12, 2014 at 1:30 pm

      Epicaldragon, Gizmo doesn’t think that’s true – but I know it’s so.

    Haha Bongo,

    Probably best Gizmo doesn’t hear what you’re saying about him, unless he’s got a good sense of humor?! 🙂

    I hope you’re having a fun day and haven’t been left behind today? 🙂

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Bongo

      August 13, 2014 at 10:13 pm

      Snoopy, I’d probably get the other end of Gizmo’s claws if he heard what I said about him. I had a really good day today because yesterday’s thunder was gone today. Woo woo!

    HAHAHA! that’s way to far from Gizmo! You are funny men. He’ll start wondering if he’s adopted or not! HAHAHA

    • Bongo

      August 27, 2014 at 9:29 pm

      Small Dogs, Gizmo was definitely adopted.
