Ten Years!

06 Feb

Bongo wading in a puddle

It’s my ten year Gotcha Day!

Gonna have a party.

Think I’ll play in a puddle.

Bongo dragging a frisbee in the snow.

Or maybe I’ll go play in the snow.

Bongo carrying a frisbee on a snowy day.

Bongo on the trail in the snow


No more snow?

It’s all gone?

Bongo eating a treat

Think I’ll celebrate with some treats then.

Hey person, could you put a candle on that treat?

    Happy gotcha day! hope you have a happy new year. Hope you don’t mind about your age.


      February 7, 2016 at 10:16 am

      Sorry about what I said about your age. I’d really like to hear back from you Bongo. Hope you got lots of yummy treats and lots of presents to.

      • Bongo

        February 7, 2016 at 2:22 pm

        I did get some yummy treats. and I don’t mind about my age – even though my person tries to say I’m actually around thirteen. I still act like a puppy half the time.

        Hi Bongo. I just wanted to update you on my new post called Momar the Great. I’ll let you know as soon as I can Momar’s Blog Name. I wrote it like a poem with Tula and Momar in it.

      • I LOVE PETS

        March 3, 2016 at 10:21 pm

        The page is called My Dog Momar- Here is the blog page that has my recent post on it. Thanks for checking me out so often! Tula and Momar

      • Bongo

        March 10, 2016 at 10:53 am

        Hi Momar – I found your page and checked it out. Can you put some pictures on it? That would make it really great.

      • I LOVE PETS

        March 11, 2016 at 5:53 pm

        I haven’t been updating it often but once I get some more photos to put on there I will add them as soon as I can. It is my new site as I have only posted those things within the last year or so…

      • I LOVE PETS

        March 11, 2016 at 6:14 pm

        I just added a photo for you. It is only one but I might be able to post some new ones once it stops raining here and I can take some pretty outdoor shots of Momar running around at the dog park or in a private and fenced in grassy area. πŸ™‚

      • I LOVE PETS

        March 13, 2016 at 7:44 pm

        Hi Bongo. I left you a Facebook comment and I was wondering if you checked out my Momar page again and found the photo post I made up for you and the others.

        Thanks so much! I saw it and responded! Little Sawyer has not gotten back to me lately. I wonder what his new plan is… Hope everything is alright at his little place/page.

        March 27, 2016 at 6:59 pm

        Happy Easter to you too. I chased the Easter Bunny out of my yard this morning. It would have been all good except he forgot to drop his Easter eggs on his way out.

      • I LOVE PETS

        March 28, 2016 at 8:24 am

        Hah! Did you bark at the Bunny??!!

      • Bongo

        March 29, 2016 at 8:45 pm

        No. I was too busy running after it.

        so funny! How are the cats?

      • Bongo

        April 10, 2016 at 4:35 pm

        Those cats are still acting like cats. Sometimes Gizmo tries to give me a hard time. I just get up and go somewhere else.

      February 7, 2016 at 2:14 pm

      Thanks Benji. I’m still trying to figure out how to put ten candles on that little treat. It was too hard to think about so I just ate the treat.

    Happy 10th Gotcha Day, Bongo!!! This is just fantastic! Could you tell us about the story of finding your person?

    • Bongo

      February 7, 2016 at 2:19 pm

      Thanks Kolytyi. I think my story is on a really old Gotcha Day post, but the short version is that my person and younger person came to the shelter where I was hanging out and I kept bringing them balls to toss for me and I wouldn’t let them go until they took me with them.

      Thanks. My person says I’m actually around thirteen, but I don’t believe her. I think she added an extra one in front of the three.

      Thanks Viciously Sweet. It’s been way too long since I put up a post. My person keeps having this busy thing and she won’t let me post without her. For some reason she doesn’t trust me. Think I’ll go splash in my puddle now.

    Happy Gotcha Day, Bongo! πŸ™‚
    You look like you’re really having so much fun. I can’t wait ’til our Ginn himself turns 10 (he’s still a half year old puppy, nine and a half more years to go!). I think I’ll let him play on puddles and snow, too. I was also thinking of letting him ride on a sleigh since we really haven’t done that yet (although I’m thinking we’ll be doing it sooner). Best regards to you and your person!

    • Bongo

      February 22, 2016 at 2:10 pm

      Thanks Nielmary. For sure let Ginn play in puddles and snow. They’re so much fun. I don’t know about sleighs though because we don’t get enough snow here to have them. I bet they’d be cool.
