First my person got sick and wouldn’t take me for a walk.
Then it started thundering and I couldn’t go for a walk.
But you’re not going to believe what happened now.
Some bug bit my person in the foot and it’s all swollen up and she can’t take me for a walk again.
So now my person says that since I’m not having any adventures I might not have anything to post for a few days.
I guess you’ll see a poor, sad, out of shape dog in a few days.
In the meantime, I’m curling up for a nap.
August 20, 2014 at 10:34 am
Awe so sorry to hear.. I hope your persons foot heals up quickly & you are back out on your trails soon.
August 27, 2014 at 10:11 pm
Jackie, I don’t know what to think. I finally got some walks and then either my person pulls that busy thing or the thunder shows up.
August 20, 2014 at 11:01 am
How awful. That is a very bad week. Could you ask Toby,s person to take you for a walk, or what about younger person, or man person. If I lived near you I would take you. I hope that your person,s foot heals quickly..
Keep smiling Bongo it will all be OK
.love you xxx
August 27, 2014 at 10:12 pm
Patrecia, my younger person doesn’t like taking me for walks. I don’t know why. I think I might have to move over to Toby’s house because I know his person would take me.
August 20, 2014 at 11:21 am
Oh, no you guys!!!! I’m so sorry to hear that! I hope your person gets better* and may the weather behave …finally!!!! Sounds like you are both going to be curling up for a nap. Maybe this would be a good time for you to visit your person’s bed to comfort her!
* what bug was this?!
August 27, 2014 at 10:14 pm
Marina, my person never found the bug but she thinks it was some kind of spider. Her foot got all swollen up and she could hardly walk on it. It’s way better now but not all the way better. She actually took me for some walks but then it thundered and then my person pulled that busy thing.
August 20, 2014 at 1:03 pm
Oh no my friend. I hope your human gets to feeling better really, really soon. We need your walkie adventures! XOXO – Bacon
August 27, 2014 at 10:15 pm
Bacon, my person is almost better but not all the way. I have to admit that I did get to take her on a couple walks but then the thunder showed up again and today she pulled that busy thing.
August 27, 2014 at 10:59 pm
Oh brother. I definitely feel you. I hate it when the humans pull their trump card called busy. Aren’t we the reason they exist? How can they be busy from us? Shakes piggy head. XOXO – Bacon
August 28, 2014 at 10:37 am
Bacon, I totally agree. What could be more important than us?
August 28, 2014 at 11:37 am
I know – that’s exactly the way I think. I mean the humans are here for *us*. XOXO – Bacon
August 20, 2014 at 1:14 pm
What a terrible wheek. Whee hope for your sakes it’s more fantabulous next wheek so you can be happy again!

August 27, 2014 at 10:16 pm
Thanks Pigs. I’m still waiting for things to get back to normal – but especially for that thunder to go away for good.
August 20, 2014 at 1:35 pm
Oh, poor Bongo!!! At least, your person could learn perfect timing: if she has to be sick, then she should do this on those days when it thunders. Thus, she could be with you and you shouldn’t be put into the dog jail.
August 27, 2014 at 10:17 pm
Kolytyi, I totally agree with you. But my person still keeps leaving me and then when she finally comes home she’s all tired out. There’s something not right about all this.

August 20, 2014 at 2:43 pm
Can’t win em all, good luck next week!
August 27, 2014 at 10:17 pm
Thanks Will and Eko.
August 20, 2014 at 3:45 pm
Sick, thunder, and now a deadly bug bite? Yikes. What a run of bad luck. I hope things get back to normal soon. Hang in there, B.
Love and licks,
August 27, 2014 at 10:18 pm
Thanks Cupcake. In the meantime I’m hiding under the covers. I think there’s more thunder on its way.
August 20, 2014 at 4:53 pm
Oh no! When it rains it pours. Feel better soon, things can only look up from here!
August 27, 2014 at 10:20 pm
Thanks Scooch. I guess one of these days all the bad stuff will stop at once and I’ll get out for everyday walks on my trails again.
August 20, 2014 at 6:05 pm
Your person needs you to keep your spirits up so you can help her keep her spirits up during this trying time. At least her bad foot and the thunder are at the same time so you can be together and you can comfort each other.
August 27, 2014 at 10:21 pm
Patricia, I’ll take good care of my person – as soon as she gets rid of the thunder for me.
August 20, 2014 at 8:16 pm
Poor Bongo. Next week is bound to be better. In the mean time tear the house apart :).
August 27, 2014 at 10:21 pm
Don’t Doubt, that’s why I get stuck in dog jail. I used to tear the house apart whenever I got left home alone and it thundered. Now I can’t do that anymore.
August 21, 2014 at 1:06 am
I hope you are having lots of fun in the house!
August 27, 2014 at 10:22 pm
Dalton, at least I’m keeping the cats in line.
August 21, 2014 at 7:45 am
Poor Bongo! I hope your person feels better soon.
August 27, 2014 at 10:23 pm
Sue Ann, my person says thanks. I hope she’s better soon too. I want my walks!
August 21, 2014 at 9:06 am
I’m very very sorry for your person’s sick and bitten foot….does it hurt her foot? *worried face*
I hope she gets feel better soon, Bongo…please look after her. Hugs
August 27, 2014 at 10:24 pm
Kevin, my person’s foot got all swollen up and she could hardly walk on it. Now most of the swelling has gone down but she says it’s still kind of sore where the bite was. She can take me on walks on my trails now – when she’s not pulling that busy thing and it’s not thundering.

Sounds like a very frustrating week for both you and your Mom Bongo. Hope the week-end brings better news.
August 27, 2014 at 10:27 pm
Marty, it’s still hit or miss – but I did finally get my person to take me out on a couple walks.
August 24, 2014 at 6:03 am
Bad times don´t last forever 🙂 Get well and have a nice next week.
August 27, 2014 at 10:28 pm
Thanks Daydreamer. As soon as that thunder goes away I’ll have my person back out on the trails for sure.
August 24, 2014 at 2:19 pm
Missing you Bongo and Bongo’s person [and Scratchy and Gizmo!]. I hope you are better! 🙄
Wishes for a great new week!
August 27, 2014 at 10:30 pm
Thanks so much Marina. My person’s energy level is still down so she’s usually really tired when she gets home for the day. I think she should just stay home and then she could help me write some more blog posts.
August 28, 2014 at 2:43 pm
Sounds like your person needs some tlc and maybe even some of your slobbery kisses! I hope she gets her energy levels up again soon. Meantime, take advantage and rest. A good sleep is always beneficial! 🙂
August 27, 2014 at 2:33 pm
OMC I think I came just in time, my dear furriend. Will send Healing Pawkisses your way. Hope your person is feeling better soon 🙂
August 27, 2014 at 10:31 pm
Thanks so much Little Binky. My person is feeling better but her energy level is still not normal so when she gets home she says she’s too tired to help me write my blog posts. And then there’s that thunder. It doesn’t seem to want to leave.
September 8, 2014 at 2:07 pm
Granny and I come by to check on you, dear Bongo and Person. I’m a little worried. Hope everything is fine again. Pawkisses and hugs ❤
September 8, 2014 at 5:02 pm
Thanks so much Little Binky and Granny. Things are fine here now – well except we still get thunder some days – and I should have been in Phoenix this morning because I could have gone swimming on the freeway. My person has been pulling this “busy” thing lately. I’m going to have to tie her down at my computer and make here type up a blog post for me.
September 8, 2014 at 11:10 pm
Thanks for the updat, Bongo. I’m relieved to hear that you’re allright, Pal. We’ll ask God to use a soft ball instead of a bowling ball when he is going to play football again. I’m sure your person will type another blog post, when she has time. I’m to busy with my stardom right now, but I promiss I come by again soon 🙂 Stay cool 🙂
August 28, 2014 at 3:48 am
OMD! That is the absolute saddest week I have ever seen. Sometimes Bongo, you have to go easy on the humans. They are a very fragile species. Maybe if you cuddle up real close all the badness will end and you will be back to adventures soon. – Your friends at DogDaz Zoo
August 28, 2014 at 10:41 am
Dogdaz, I’m working on that cuddle thing. But I’m trying a few nudges too. Toward my leash and then out the door.
August 28, 2014 at 12:30 pm
Louise brings Mommy’s socks to her, maybe you can try that.
August 28, 2014 at 2:37 pm
Great idea! And maybe her hiking boots too.
August 28, 2014 at 7:17 am
Poor Bongo! Tell your person to use some Calamine lotion, it helps bites a lot. I hope you can get out of the house soon & continue your adventures! Until then, maybe catch up on your reading? Chicken Soup for the Dog Lovers Soul is one of our faves.
Love & Biscuits,
Cathy, Isis & Phoebe
August 28, 2014 at 10:54 am
Cathy, Isis & Phoebe, I’ll have to check out that book as soon as I catch up on all my naps. I think there might be no thunder today though and my person might feel good enough to take me for a walk. Woo woo!
August 31, 2014 at 3:52 am
Ah Bongo I’m sorry that you didn’t have such a good week, hope your human is feeling better!?
September 1, 2014 at 10:29 pm
Camilla, she’s feeling better and I’m actually getting my walks again – but now she’s pulling that “busy” thing. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
September 8, 2014 at 2:20 am
Glad your human is better and that you get to go for walks again:) Hope you have a wonderful week!
September 1, 2014 at 10:18 pm
Oh Bongo, you poor thing. I feel very sad for you and your human, you’re obviously not having a great time between feeling sick, injuries and those dreaded storms. Hopefully it will all get better soon and you’ll be out on your trails again. xxx
H and Flo. And Elsie. And Zac. And Fergus. And even George. 🙂
September 1, 2014 at 10:30 pm
Flo and everybody, thanks for your concern. My person is actually feeling better now and she’s taking me for walks – and it hasn’t even thundered in a few days. But now my person is pulling that “busy” thing and she won’t help me write about my new adventures.
September 6, 2014 at 2:27 pm
Sweet Bongo and company are greatly missed! Hoping everything is fine!!! 🙂
September 6, 2014 at 11:08 pm
Thanks so much Marina. My person is over what she had and her foot is pretty much better too, but now she’s pulling this “busy” thing. I think she might be less busy next week or the one after. I sure hope so because yesterday she was so busy she wouldn’t even let me take her for a walk.
September 7, 2014 at 2:18 pm
‘Busy’ is good – well, as long as it involves you too!!!! 😉 Here’s some fish to keep you going for a while, Bongo [and a kiss from Loretta!] 🙂
September 8, 2014 at 11:14 am
Woo woo! Thanks Marina and Loretta.
September 8, 2014 at 11:58 am
Oh, Bongo – even RC (not being a fan of loud booms and thunders) has been worried about you. Molly assured her you had a person and nice bed to snuggle in…but the German (totally terrified of thunder and having to huddle with staff in a corner of the hall over the weekend visit that was marred by a thunderstorm and then had to ride home in the car the next day during a thunder storm), well, the German is too exhausted to say much….and she sprained her toe running in too fast to get away from the thunder outside.
So everyone here hopes everyone there has a better week!
(Oh! Paws up for K9S4COPS spokesdog ringing the bell on Wall Street – they are raising money for trained dogs in schools to protect students. They were just on TV! WooWOO!)
September 8, 2014 at 5:00 pm
Karen, maybe I can make my person feel guilty if even RC has been worried about me. And I hope the German is doing better. First my person was sick, and then her foot got bit, and then thunder came and then my person pulled this “busy” thing. At least we only got normal rain here last night – my trails weren’t even muddy today. If I’d been in Phoenix this morning I could have gone swimming on the Interstate. Wait a minute! I think I missed a swimming date.
