The Almost Really Good Day

02 Jan

Today was a really good day.

Well, it started out good.

My buddy came over for a visit.

We had a great time playing catch – but then, he decided my younger person’s Legos were more interesting.

Bongo putting a ball in a box full of Legos

So I had to drop my ball in the Lego box.


That must have gotten his attention…

Bongo and his buddy on a walk in the snow

…because after that he let me take him for a walk.

In the snow.

Bongo eating snow near some icicles

I don’t know anything about icicles, but this snow sure tastes good.


But then my buddy got out of control.

Bongo jumping over a remote control truck

He sent a truck after me.

Bongo trying to get the remote control truck

But a picture doesn’t do this horrible truck justice.

Warning: The following video contains explicit language –

oh, never mind. Only my dog friends will understand what I’m saying.

My buddy deserved some real punishment for this.

Bongo's buddy in the dog jail

So I locked him in dog jail.

Bongo's buddy and Gizmo locked in dog jail

And for good measure, I locked Gizmo in there with him.

After all, Gizmo used to be my buddy’s cat before he came to live at my house.


Hey, wait a minute!

Bongo and his buddy both locked in dog jail

How did I end up in here too?

A dog just can’t win around here.

    I warned him that you would not like that truck! Sorry, Bongo! 😉

      Missy, tell him to bring that truck again next time. I’m going to give it what for.

      Ku, my whole yard and trails are full of that delicious stuff. I especially like nibbling it off the stairs to my back yard. Got to clear those stairs off somehow.

    I don’t know, Bongo. Looks to me like the truck was afraid of you!

    • Bongo

      January 2, 2015 at 9:01 pm

      Patricia, I certainly hope I scared it.

    Oh Bongo, it looked like a great day until the “truck incident”. Hope the rest of it was good 🙂

    • Bongo

      Marty, I really did have fun today. Next time that truck comes to my house I’m really gonna give it what for.

    Bongo, you were almost in charge till the very end! Happy New Year!

    • Bongo

      January 2, 2015 at 9:02 pm

      Roberta, at least I made it out okay. When my buddy wanted out, I got out too before anybody could stop me.

      Oceanwave, it was really trying. But next time that truck comes over here I’ll be ready for it and I’m gonna give it what for.

    GAH, B. You got trapped in your own trap! That stinks. I hope you’re out and freewheeling again by now!

    Love and licks,

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2015 at 4:59 pm

      Cupcake, my little buddy wanted to get out so that opened the way for me to get out too.

    That sure is a big jail ya got there Bongo!

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2015 at 5:00 pm

      Rumpy, I live with two cats now, so I need a big jail to lock both of them up.

    Naughty Buddy sending a blue truck after you. I bet you barked at it in protest…and so you should. You look lovely in your ‘jail’ it looks very strong….my dogs all have a cage each but the cages are not made of strong stuff like that..are you an escapee?

    love you Bongo lots of cuddles and kisses,,,,and hugs

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2015 at 5:03 pm

      Patrecia, my person thought that strong jail would keep the thunder out. It doesn’t, but I can’t get out of it to escape the thunder. My person says my dog jail is keeping the doors of the house from getting new holes in them when it thunders. Well, if those doors are in my way I’ve got to get through them somehow.

      • misswhiplash

        January 4, 2015 at 2:11 am

        oh my poor Bongo..I do understand your predicament,When it thunders at night why don’t you hide under big person’s bed, you would be safe from harm there, or you could even get into bed and hide under the duvet. I am sure that she would not mind!

      • Bongo

        January 4, 2015 at 1:38 pm

        Thunder’s not so bad when my person is around. I still don’t like it but at least she’s here to protect me. It’s when she leaves me home alone (cats don’t count) and the thunder shows up.

    Now who in the world, put all of you sweeties in jail after you all had so much fun in the snow? That blue truck was naughty, but we didn’t see the rest of you being naughty, we think the truck should have been put in jail, not you all. Hugs and nose kisses

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2015 at 5:04 pm

      Mag and Chancy, next time that truck shows up at my house it’s going into jail for sure. And actually my little buddy put all of us in jail – including himself. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    I’m so glad that you had a good time with your little friend, Bongo! He looks so cute taking you for a walk…Oops!!! no no…letting you take him walk, I mean….*hem hem*
    Hee hee…three of you ended up being in your dog jail!!! Somehow, all of you seem to be happy in there! 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2015 at 5:05 pm

      Kevin, fortunately my little buddy was between me and Gizmo. Otherwise Gizmo might have started swatting at me and I wouldn’t have been able to escape.

  12. angelswhisper2011

    January 3, 2015 at 12:22 pm

    How dare that truck…better you put that in jail too, Bongo, but at least you let to hear yourself loud and clear. Btw wasn’t it a little bit cosy all together in that warm, snuggling…jailhouse 😀 Pawkisses 🙂 ❤

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2015 at 5:11 pm

      Little Binky, next time I’m putting that truck in jail for sure. And I didn’t mind being cozy with my little buddy and I guess Gizmo didn’t either. He was on the other side of the jail from me.

    Definitely jail time – driving without a license. You’ve got snow Bongo? We don’t have any left here but maybe tonight. Crazy because you know there’s nothing better than playing in the snow! Lola

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2015 at 5:13 pm

      Lola, it’s hard to believe that we got snow in Arizona when colder places don’t have any. The sun is back out now though and our snow is going away but there’s still some left. Too bad we can’t play in the snow together. That would be so much fun!

      • dianeskitchentable

        January 3, 2015 at 6:46 pm

        Well I had to open my mouth – it a messy mix of snow/sleet & rain right now so nobody is out on the roads. But – tomorrow’s going to be in the 50’s so go figure?

    “How dare you invade my home? Wait – wait – stop! Did I tell you to move? What’s wrong with you stupid 4wheeled thing? You sit, you listen? if you don’t obey I’ll have to give you what for! Stay, I tell you! srlkprklstringlzzzz woooof!” Or that’s some of the phrases Loretta translated for me. Is your person a magician? How did she get you behind …bars?!!!

    • Bongo

      January 3, 2015 at 5:15 pm

      Loretta, thanks for translating for Marina – but I’m sure glad you didn’t tell her the worst things I said. Oh, and my little buddy must be the magician. He put me, Gizmo, and himself behind bars. I’m not sure how he did it.

    You sure gave that toy what for Bongo. I love seeing videos of our blogging pals!

    • Bongo

      January 5, 2015 at 4:12 pm

      That truck deserved everything it got. And it got my person to take a video of me. She doesn’t do that very often.

    You sure showed the truck who was boss!

      Dalton, if that truck ever comes over here again I hope you’ll come over and help me with it.

    i wish we had snow here, eating snow sounds like a lot of fun. 😀 You’re really brave Bongo the way you dealt with the truck, showing it who’s boss! i’m easily scared and would have ran to the corner of the room and let it do whatever it wanted! 😛

    • Bongo

      January 23, 2015 at 5:16 pm

      Popcorn, I had to give that truck what for. But I think the truck went out and chased all the snow away. All of it disappeared.

      February 7, 2015 at 2:51 pm

      Sun, you’ve got to watch out for strange blue things – at least around here. I’m putting my radar out in case any more of those things show up.

      February 14, 2015 at 11:59 am

      Thanks so much Little Binky. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your granny too. We’re all fine here. My person is just making me take a blogging break because she has some kind of “busy” problem.

      Thanks Chancy and Pooh. I’ve been missing all my blogging friends too – but my person keeps pulling this “busy” thing. Everything is good here though.

    What a winter we are having – you get snow, we get icy rain/bitter winds and fog. Stay warm Bongo

    • Bongo

      March 2, 2015 at 11:19 am

      Thanks Karen. Except for that one snow we’ve mostly had spring for winter. Except for the last couple of days and a few last week. Today the rain has been pouring down. I think the weatherman is confused though.

      • philosophermouseofthehedge

        March 2, 2015 at 12:30 pm

        Bongo, it’s been a foggy drizzling, rainy cold winter here. No dry shoes or paws anywhere. Molly never notices the weather, though. She’s going out to run in a big field with friends – not sunny, but not raining. ..and then there’s the mud rinse off at the end of the day which she’s gotten very tolerant of. But all this rain should mean lots of wild flowers soon – the redbuds, pears and citrus trees are already putting on blooms to give winter notice. Paw waves

      • Bongo

        March 2, 2015 at 7:38 pm

        Karen, the rain turned to snow today – for awhile. A little bit even stayed on the ground but it’s mostly gone now. Wish I could go romping in the mud with Molly. It’s more fun when you have a friend.
