Hi! My name is Bongo. I’m a dog who loves getting into mischief and having adventures. I also love people and like to share what I’ve been up to.
On Sundays I tell Bible stories. Well, my person tells them to me and I make comments. I’m sure you’ll find these Bible stories much more understandable because of what I add to them. If you click on the “Dogology” link you’ll find all of my Bible stories in one place.
September 14, 2011 at 3:57 am
Hi Bongo. Check out my latest post. I have given you two blogger awards. You deserve them!
September 14, 2011 at 10:34 am
Thanks so much Bassa. My person is leaving the house and she won’t let me use her computer when she’s not here. I looked quickly, but I’ll check your new posts out better when she gets back home. -Bongo

Hi!! Just wanted to say THANKS for mailing Nala’s collar and tags. So happy you found them while hiking at Sycamore. You can check out some pics of my dogs and cats on my facebook page. Nala is the Akita. She is happy to have her collar and tags back. Thanks again!! Shirley Pogany
January 21, 2012 at 6:52 pm
Shirley, I was glad I could find you and get that collar back to you. I checked out the photos on your Facebook page. Looks like your dogs love the water too.
May 30, 2014 at 5:32 am
I learned of your blog from rachelmankowitz — her blog lists yours as one of her favorites. I certainly had a good time reading your posts and seeing the photos. You might mention to your human that I also have a blog at http://www.maijaharrington.com where I’m posting chapters from my book-in-progress, Funny Tails: Adventures and Misadventures in Living with Pugs. It’s a lighthearted look at 10 years of living with these flat-faced, frog-eyed little gremlins and providing foster care through Pug Rescue of North Carolina. Lots of folks like the book and think it’s funny, so she may enjoy it, too. In the meantime, I look forward to new posts from you!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Hi there, would you be interested in being a guest blogger on my blog? If so please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can add a link to your blog and any photos etc that you would like. I thought it would be nice to share your story of how you came to own Bongo maybe in his words since that is how you write. Take care and God bless!
October 25, 2011 at 4:06 pm

December 11, 2011 at 8:36 pm
Thanks Katyoparty. I’ll tell my person to look for that book.
December 18, 2011 at 11:49 am

April 24, 2012 at 10:58 pm

April 25, 2012 at 7:18 pm
I’ve tagged you. Feel free to play along or just ignore it. I know they take time to put together!!

June 16, 2012 at 12:04 am
Thanks so much for the award. My person has been hiding my awards lately. It’s that “busy” thing, but she says she’ll get to them eventually.
June 16, 2012 at 6:00 am
You are very welcome. Don’t let her get too very busy. 🙂
June 16, 2012 at 12:04 pm
I keep telling my person to stop doing her busy things and just take me on more walks.
June 17, 2012 at 2:14 pm
Hello Bongo. You are a lovely and funny dog. Say hello to your person from me 🙂
June 17, 2012 at 7:45 pm
Thanks Ulla. I’m passing the hello onto my person right now.

November 11, 2012 at 1:16 pm
Alex and Penny, so glad you are okay. Did you get snow from the next storm?
November 11, 2012 at 7:11 pm
Yes we did Bongo…5 inches!!!, You would have LOVED Playing in all that snow!!!…:-). But every time you would here a Tree Limb Snap, you would come home running. I know because Penny did.
Some homes lost their power a second time for another day or 2…very stressful, but we made out Ok. Us New Yorkers are pretty resiliant. Woof, Woof and Woof!
November 11, 2012 at 8:53 pm
Penny, that would be really sad having to worry about tree limbs falling on you when you wanted to be having fun in the snow. I can’t imagine finally getting your power back just to lose it again. How frustrating!
February 28, 2013 at 2:39 pm
Hey, just thought i would let you know that i have nominated you for the “very inspiring blogger award 2013” – not really sure what it is but its nice to be appreciated. Happy blogging! 🙂
March 3, 2013 at 4:56 pm
Thanks so much for passing on the award to me. My person is usually pretty slow about putting my awards up so I’ll have to get on her.
May 19, 2013 at 7:28 am
Hi Bongo I love following you daily adventures! I have nominated you for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award. Some more information for you http://tuttisworld.wordpress.com/awesome-awards/ HAPPY BLOGGING TO YOU and special greetings from EMI woof woof – TUTTI

August 7, 2013 at 5:14 pm
Bongo…I have been posting on your blog for a several days, but they do not seem to show up.
Is something wrong???
August 7, 2013 at 5:16 pm
Bongo, I have been posting on your blog for several days now and nothing is showing up!!!
Is something wrong???
August 7, 2013 at 9:38 pm
Alex, Trish, and Penny, it looks like you figured out what was wrong. If you don’t put in your name and info I have to “Accept” the post before it will show up – but they’re all showing up now because I accepted them.
September 10, 2013 at 9:31 pm
It’s me again, Tammy the Marketing Coordinator at The Uncommon Dog. We just finished another informative info-graphic that I thought you might be interested in. It’s titled “How Dogs Became Our Best Friends!”.
If you love dogs, like we do, then you’ll love this story. Recent scientific breakthroughs have increased our understanding about how dogs have come to play such an integral part of our daily lives. This fun and engaging info-graphic tells that story in a way that we hope makes it accessible and interesting to everyone.
If you would like to share this info-graphic with your readers, please feel free to do so. You can find the info-graphic here: http://www.theuncommondog.com/how-dogs-became-our-best-friends.aspx Again, all we ask in return is that you link back to TheUncommonDog.com, in some way, from your post.
Also, definitely let me know if you do decide to post it because we’d be happy to spread the word again about the blog post by linking to it from our Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ pages.
If you’d like your e-mail removed from our mailing list, please let us know.

We and Kyla (fellow blogger) are in New River. Didn’t even know we were such near neighbors. Far Fetched Friends is in Mesa. We met through our blogs and have done dog walks as a result. Where are you?
June 1, 2014 at 3:30 pm
Run a Muck, we’re in Sedona. My younger person has an apartment in Chandler but he’s mostly in Sedona right now because he finished school. What’s your blog address? It’s not showing up with your comment.
June 3, 2014 at 10:47 am
I came across your blog, and thought you might be interested in helping us spread the word about a way for No kill shelters to receive free dog food and help pups get adopted. Please email me at email@example.com for more details.

July 31, 2014 at 5:58 pm
What breed are you Bongo?
July 31, 2014 at 8:54 pm
Quinlyn, at the shelter where my people found me they said I’m a pointer mix. I think that means I’m all mixed up.
August 1, 2014 at 4:41 pm
Yes. Tula is a mix between a Jack Russell Terrier/ Dachshund mix. Momar is just a pure bred Chihuahua.
August 1, 2014 at 4:47 pm
What was the shelters name where they got you?
August 1, 2014 at 11:02 pm
The dog jail I was at is called the Sedona Humane Society. It’s a small local shelter.
August 2, 2014 at 7:55 am
Did you get my message from FB? it’s my mommy’s side but its still me.
August 2, 2014 at 2:57 pm
Yup, got it. Thanks.

August 2, 2014 at 8:11 pm
Can you look at my site? its all about dogs to.
August 3, 2014 at 5:17 pm
What a cool site. Walks and treats. What better things could be on a website?
August 2, 2014 at 8:18 pm
How did your Human get all those Blog awards? She has a lot.
August 3, 2014 at 5:18 pm
When I first started my blog my person had more time and she read lots of blog posts and I made lots of blogging friends. Then some of those friends started giving me awards. Now my person doesn’t even have time to post awards when I get them.
August 2, 2014 at 9:53 pm
I left you a message through FB. Did you get it yet?
August 3, 2014 at 5:19 pm
secretaryperson is just catching up with all my messages. I did get the FB message. I won’t let my person leave the computer until she answers it.
August 3, 2014 at 9:03 am
Did you get my messages the other day? Did you already respond to them and they just didn’t come through? If yes, can you send the message again. I didn’t get it.
August 3, 2014 at 5:00 pm
Just in case if you don’t get my message from FB faster I’m just wanting to send it via wordpress thinking it would be shorter time waiting for your message.
When’s your Birthday BongoDog? I also love the name of your FB page. 😉
August 3, 2014 at 5:25 pm
Tula, I don’t know when my birthday is because I was about three years old when my people rescued me from
dog jailthe shelter. So I celebrate my Gotcha Day instead. My Gotcha Day is February 6th.
August 15, 2014 at 6:23 am
Can you take a look at my new blog? My Dog Momar? In these stories I will call Tula: Tula The Wonder Dog and Momar: Momar The Great.
August 27, 2014 at 9:03 pm

MERRY CHRISTMAS, BONGO and family!!!!! Wishing you all the best + lots and lots and lots of treats, walks all year round and the return of your puddle!!!! 🙂
December 25, 2014 at 7:51 pm
Merry Christmas to you too Marina. I got lots and lots of treats today. But no walk. My person said she’d rather stay in and watch movies because it was blowy and cold. We even had a few snowflakes.
December 27, 2014 at 3:45 pm
I hope that at least the movie had a 4 legged female movie star playing! 😉
June 18, 2015 at 1:51 am
Where art thou, sweet Bongo!
We miss you! 😥
I know you’re on fb, but I’m not much of an active fbbian, so I sincerely hope you return to your regular post here!!!!!!!!!
June 20, 2015 at 4:46 pm
Marina, I’ve been thinking about you. I miss you too. I’ve got to do something to get her to let me post on my blog again. I tried yanking her arm out of her socket – well, I was really trying to get the quail on my trail – but nothing I do has worked so far.
June 21, 2015 at 1:54 am
Have you tried ‘the look’?!
Loretta sends her slobbery kisses. She’s been a bit under the weather lately, but as soon as she gets better she says she’ll also try her best to convince your person! 🙂
July 2, 2015 at 11:29 am
I hope Loretta’s feeling better by now. I’m working on ‘the look’ but I think my person just thinks I’m afraid of the thunder. That nasty thunder has come back.
July 2, 2015 at 12:36 pm
One ‘good thing’ that came out of Loretta’s illness is that we tried homeopathic treatment and a great ‘side effect’ of it was that she seems to be much braver with thunder and fireworks! Other than that she is gradually [albeit slowly] getting better.
In any case, my dear Bongo, Loretta and I are doing our best to send your thunder away! 😉

Dear Bongo, I would like permission to use a photo of the javelina footprints on an educational display here at the Quinney Library at Utah State University. The track is perfect for this interpretive sign.

Hello Bongo! I like your blog and really enjoyed this unique article.
