What Did I do with My Summer Vacation?

16 Aug

Bongo on the trail with flowersThis is ridiculous! My last post right before this one has snow in it.

Right now it’s so hot that if snow showed up it would sizzle away.

So I’m sneaking on the computer while my person isn’t looking and writing a new post.

Besides, today is my blogiversary.

Four years of blogging.

Well, it would have been four years if I’d actually been blogging the last few months.

So, since I haven’t posted since the snow was on the ground, and the kids who live near me are already back in school I thought I’d do a “What did I do with my Summer Vacation” kind of post.

Oh. What did I do?

Oh yeah. I got to hang out some with my little buddy.

Bongo and his buddy in dog jail

It wasn’t me. It’s his fault we’re in jail.


And my puddle came back!

And the tadpoles came with it.

Puddle with tadpoles

I’ve been watching those tadpoles grow for awhile, but for some reason my person won’t let me get in the puddle with them. No fair!

Oh yeah, and there were those two times in the dog hotel when my person went off without me.

But the best time I had all summer was when my person’s friend invited her to go to the creek with her – and then she invited me along too.

There was only one problem.

Next time we need to go to a creek that has smaller sticks.

    That looks like a pretty nice creek to be swimming in!

      The creek is awesome, except you have to travel a lot of miles down a dirt road to get there. Now if I could only move it to my backyard.

    Oh how i have missed you. I know you write on Facebook but often it goes so fast that i do not see all things people post……I love to see you swimming that must have been fun and it was very nice of lady to invite you as well…..lots of hugs and nosey kisses

    • Bongo

      August 17, 2015 at 3:23 pm

      Hi Patrecia – I guess I’m going to have to sneak on my blog every time my person isn’t looking. First I need to get my person’s friend to invite me swimming again. My person said I might not be invited again. I don’t know why. Hugs and slobbery kisses to you.

    You look GREAT swimming in that creek, B. That looks like the perfect place to be in the summer. …except for the stick situation.

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, swimming is my favorite thing to do in the summer. And I really love fetching sticks in the water – the bigger, the better.

    HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY, sweet Bongo! Loretta sends her slobbery kisses! 🙂

      Thanks Marina. I thought of you when I was putting up that post. You and Loretta are two of my favorites and I miss you when I’m not on my blog. I’ll have to sneak on it again whenever my person isn’t looking.

      • marina kanavaki

        August 24, 2015 at 3:12 pm

        I really hope you do. Loretta would be especially happy as she’s not been feeling well lately.

      • Bongo

        August 26, 2015 at 11:45 pm

        Marina, I’m so sorry to hear Loretta isn’t feeling well. Please give her some big, slobbery kisses for me.

        She said: “woof – woof, woooof woooooof, woof” but I’m not very good at dogish. I know she was very happy though! She’s a tough cookie so we hope she’ll overcome this.

      Lily and Edward, I think it’s that hot here too. Phoenix has a heat warning right now. At least we’re not quite as hot as Phoenix – but almost.

      Rama’s Mama, that creek was wonderful. Now I’m trying to figure out how to move it to my backyard.

      Thanks Dolly. My summer has been pretty good – except for that thunder that keeps showing up.

    Bongo so glad to see you we have had a rainy summer mostly in the high 70’s, low 80’s. What cute tadpols, we have those everywhere in our creek but we get in anyway (nobody even sees them but Mom). What a beautiful creek you went to and you are a great swimmer. Hope you get to go back soon;)

    • Bongo

      August 20, 2015 at 8:48 pm

      Mica and Aspen, I could use some of your rain – as long as the thunder doesn’t show up with it. We did get enough for my puddle to hang around long enough for the tadpoles to turn into toadies. The last couple days there have been teeny tiny toadies hopping around near my puddle.

    Happy blogiversary Bongo! It was so great to read your post again! Thank you very much for telling us what has been happening to you during your summer vacation! You look very cool in the river! I admire you to be able to swim! 😊🐶🐱

    • Bongo

      August 20, 2015 at 8:49 pm

      Thanks Kevin. Swimming is one of my favorite things to do. I just wish there was a swimming hole closer to my house so I could swim every day.

    Awwwww, Bongo, that creek is just fab!!! I’ve never swum in such a crystal clear waters! How could be move it to your backyard?

    • Bongo

      August 26, 2015 at 11:43 pm

      Kolytyi, that creek really is awesome. It’s not only clear, but the water is blue. I don’t know how it’s going to get moved to my backyard, but somebody better do it.

    I know how it is Bongo – most of my posts showed 10 foot icicles…boy, wish they were back again because I don’t like this heat very much. My person was so busy with wedding stuff that I didn’t get to help with that we didn’t do much posting either BUT…we’re also 4 years of posting too.

    At least you got to got to a nice creek for a swim. I went early in the summer but rolled in something nasty and Diane won’t take me back there again. Even my groomer who loves me didn’t live me as much the day I had to go in and get the nasty off me.

    Love ya, Lola

    • Bongo

      September 12, 2015 at 10:42 am

      Lola, I wish I could find some nasty stuff to roll in. I bet it was great. And I wish that creek wasn’t so far away from my house. At least my puddle hung out most of the summer. It’s really great now that the tadpoles turned to toadies and left, but it’s shrinking fast. The weather is starting to cool – what’s better, a puddle and heat or no puddle and not so hot. Hard to decide.

      • dianeskitchentable

        September 12, 2015 at 3:46 pm

        Oh Bongo, this was not a good nasty stuff at all – even I thought it was a bad idea on the ride home…Love ya, Lola

      I saw that snow and I’m trying to convince my person that she’s got to help me update my post.

    Hey Bongo. Great Summer vacation you had there. That’s how a summer vacation should look for a nice dog like you. I just hope that your next vacation will be at least as fun as this one. Btw i had fun reading your article! Thank you for that.

    Hi Bongo. I just wanted to say that is how a fine dog like you should spend his vacation. I just hope that your future vacation(s) would be as nice and beautiful like this one.

    P.S: I had a lot of fun reading your article. Keep up the good work there! Cheers.
