The Almost Really Good Day

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.

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

That must have gotten his attention…

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

In the snow.

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

But then my buddy got out of control.

He sent a truck after me.

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.

So I locked him 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.

Too Busy

Bongo looking cuteI hope nobody missed me yesterday.

You see, I had some important things to do and I ran out of time to tell you about my latest adventures.

I was busy…

I was busy doing…

What was I busy doing?

Oh yeah.

I had some important things to do.

Very important stuff.

.

 

Bongo with a tennis ball in his mouth

Like playing ball.

So I hope you understand that sometimes there’s stuff that’s just more important than posting to my blog.

***

What!?

What do you mean, I did post on my blog yesterday?

I didn’t post anything. I’m sure of it.

I’d better check.

Gizmo sitting up with his legs out

Gizmooooo!

What are you doing on my blog?

Don’t ever get on my blog again!

It’s my blog. Mine!

As soon as I catch you I’m giving you what for.

Gizmo inside a cubby

Don’t even think you can escape by hiding in that cubby.

I’m going back to guard the computer now.

Will someone please let me know when Gizmo jumps down?

Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

Bongo behind barsOctober is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and since I came from dog jail a shelter I thought I should help promote this.

So I’m going to tell you how awful it is living in dog jail. I was surrounded by all these other dogs and none of us did anything wrong, but they made us live in cages.

We didn’t have anybody to love on us or take us for walks – well, sometimes we did, but we had to share a few people with a whole lot of dogs.

 

And everybody wanted their turn for loves and walks.

Bongo looking down the trail

There was never enough to go around.

When my people finally came and took me out of that dog jail and brought me to my new forever home I wagged my tail and jumped for joy.

Well, I was a little nervous at first, but after I realized I got to stay, then I did those things.

And I had someone around to toss balls to me anytime I wanted.

Bongo behind couches with a tennis ball

And someone to pull mischief on. Whew! I’m glad I got that last sentence crossed out before you read it.

Maybe she'll get out of bed for my snake

Maybe she’ll get out of bed for my snake.

 

There are still lots of lonely dogs in shelters everywhere.

So if you have an empty spot in your house and heart that could be filled by a dog, there’s no better time than now to give a dog a new forever home.

You’ll be glad you did.

And so will the dog.

Bongo with a funny face

Homework at the Dog Park

Bongo carrying a Frisbee in his mouthI take everything back that I said about my person’s new camera. At least for now.

And here’s why.

My person’s photography class assignment for this week is “Motion.”

And who could come up with something more filled with motion than me?

So I got to go to the dog park today, where there’s lots of room to move.

And my person brought Frisbees and balls along – and her camera.

When we first got to the dog park there was one other dog hanging out. And it turned out to be my good buddy Pablo. I think my person planned that because she didn’t seem surprised.

But then my girlfriend Layla arrived. A regular dog party!

After I got done sniffing around I had to get to work. And it was the most fun work I’ve done in a long time. I guess it will work better if I just show you.

And they even gave me a place to wash off afterwards.

Mystery Toys

Bongo with his new toysWhere did I get these new toys?

Come on person, you don’t need to know everything.

I should be allowed to have some secrets.

Okay, if you insist.

Since you left me for the day I took your credit card and went to the pet store and bought these.

What do you mean, you don’t believe me? It makes perfectly good sense to me.

I had to do something to teach you not to leave me alone all day.

Okay then, here’s what happened.

While you were gone I went out in the yard and started digging.

I found these toys buried in the ground.

What!? You still don’t believe me?

You want the truth?

If I tell you, you have to promise not to get mad.

And you have to take my new ball and play catch with me.

Here’s what really happened.

While you were gone my neighbor dog Toby came over and brought me these toys.

And that’s the truth.

You’ve got to play catch now.

Bongo running with his new ball in his mouth

This is great fun! I love this new ball.

You should have gotten me one of these a long time ago person.

Bongo with a blue ball in his mouth

I could play this game all day.

Throw it for me again!

Pick up the Ball

Bongo with a tennis ball in his mouthMy little buddy came over today!

I was so excited when I saw him. He hasn’t been over here in a very long time.

Time to play ball!

My little buddy tossed the ball to me and I slobbered it up and brought it back.

And he tossed it again.

What fun! I could do this all day.

Wait! What are you doing?

You don’t need to get my younger person’s legos out of the garage?

Aren’t I more fun to play with than legos?

Tennis ball on legos that little buddy is playing with. Bongo waiting

Pick up the ball. Pick up the ball.

Forget about those legos. Come on, the ball’s right there.

Little Buddy looking at the camera. Bongo looking at the tennis ball.

What are you doing now?

Stop looking at the camera. Can’t you see the ball?

It’s right here next to you.

Little buddy patting Bongo's head while Bongo stares at the ball

No, don’t look at me. The ball, the ball.

Well yeah, I like loves but I want the ball.

All I want to do is catch the ball.

Pleeeease?

Boy playing with legos. Bongo in the background chewing his ball.

I don’t know what it is with people these days.

All I wanted was a little game of catch.

Those legos aren’t even good for chewing on and slobbering up.

I’m not sure what my little buddy sees in those things, but…

I give up.

Stuck

Bongo behind couches with a tennis ballSometimes I miss when I’m trying to catch the ball. The other day it bounced off my nose and landed right next to Scratchy. And Scratchy wouldn’t throw the ball back to me. I’ve really got to train that cat better.

This time the ball bounced off my nose and landed in the corner. There used to be enough room between the couches for me to squeeze through, but for some reason that space disappeared. I managed to get behind those couches though and retrieve my ball.

But now I have another problem.

.

Bongo stuck behind the couches

I got my ball out, but now how do I get out?

Bongo looking for a way to get out from the couches

There must be a way to get from here to there.

Bongo looking at the floor on the other side of the couch

That floor looks so close – and yet so far away.

It can’t be that hard. I manage to get over the fence in the backyard. This would be so much easier except I don’t have room to get a running jump.

Oh wait, this will work.

Bongo climbing over the couches

And you thought I’d never make it, didn’t you?
