Camera Computer

Bongo sitting in front of a futonMy person got me a great big computer to write my blog on.

I guess I’d better take back all the complaining I’ve been doing about her lately.

Like about that camera she got. The one that she takes out for walks and leaves me home alone.

But at least she got me a computer.

So now she can take her new camera for walks.

I’ll stay at home and write about all my adventures.

Wait a minute.

How can I have any new adventures if I’m staying at home all the time?

I mean, sometimes things happen at home, but they usually happen somewhere else.

This is bad. This is really bad.

Hey person, you’ve got to leave your camera at home and take me instead.

What good is my new computer if I’ve got no adventures to write about?


What do you mean, it’s not my computer?

It’s in my house, isn’t it?

And I’m the one with the blog, aren’t I?

You got the computer for your new camera?

I don’t believe it!

You take the camera on walks instead of me, and now you got the camera its own computer.

What kind of a camera is this anyway? It doesn’t even have its own blog.

What would it need a computer for?

I’m going to have to do something about this.

Maybe I can go incognito and hide out in the computer.

Then when that camera comes to use it…

I’ll be ready to give the camera what for, and it won’t suspect a thing.

Happy Blogiversary to Me!

Bongo celebrating his BlogiversaryWoo woo! Today is my blogiversary! That means I’ve been blogging for a whole year now. I’m not sure how long a year is, but my person says this year goes from thunder season to thunder season. I guess that means we’ve had one snowy season, one windy season, and one season where every day is perfect out on my trails.

I don’t care much about numbers, but my person wants me to tell you that this is my 367th post. There’s an extra one in there because February had an extra day this year. I’ve written (well, my person helped) over 95,000 words. I’m not sure how many that is, but it sounds like a lot and I’m amazed that you’ve been reading them.

I thought this would be a good time to tell you why I have this blog. In case you haven’t realized it yet, I sometimes get into mischief. My person decided it was better to laugh at my mischief instead of crying about it – or getting mad at me. I’m sure glad she decided that. Anyway, she started posting funny things about me on her Facebook page and soon her friends that hadn’t even met me were asking her how I was doing when she saw them. Hey, I was famous before I even had this blog.

My person decided she needed to be writing on a regular basis and that maybe I should be writing too, so her Facebook comments morphed (did I write that word?) into my blog. I thought I would run out of ideas after about a month, but God has been bringing me so many adventures that I’ve had something to write about every day.

What I didn’t realize when I started blogging was that I would make so many friends through my blog. I’ve got some great friends that have been with me since almost the beginning and more that have come along throughout the year. I want to thank those of you who have stuck with me while my person has been doing this “busy” thing and hasn’t had time to visit your blogs very often. I hope she unbusies herself soon, but she keeps having more things come up.

All I can say is she’d better let me keep taking her for walks on my trails.

Lizard Blog

Lizard on a rockI see lots of lizards on my trails. They like to hang out in the sun. Most of the time when I come near they run off and hide somewhere.

But I found a lizard that isn’t like that. This lizard actually hung around and posed for my person’s camera.

I think there’s something wrong with that. I mean, lizards are supposed to run. They’re little fraidy cats. My person almost never gets pictures of lizards because they run and hide so fast.

This concerns me. Why did this lizard want to have its picture taken?

Maybe – just maybe, this lizard wants to take over my blog.

Can you imagine that? A lizard blog?

What would a lizard write about?

“Oh, it’s a hot sunny day today. I’m going to hang out on this rock and bake. —Oh, it’s freezing cold now. I’m going to hide under the rock and hibernate.”

How exciting is that? Come on little lizard. Just try to take over my blog. Let’s see how many followers you get.

And just in case you really think you can do it, there’s a cloud over there that’s ready to come down and swallow you up.

Special Treats

Today is exactly one month since I’ve been blogging and I have to say I’ve been having tons of fun. My person thinks that the more I blog, the more trouble I get into so I’ll have more stuff to write about. Maybe she’s right. I got in all kinds of trouble yesterday, but I’m still in trouble for it so I can’t write about it yet. Maybe tomorrow.

I had a special surprise yesterday. One of my first blogging friends, Bassa, sent me a message that she (I think Bassa is a she) had given me two blogging awards. I’m so excited! Thank you Bassa.

Bassa is a Caucasian Shepherd who writes a daily blog and posts all kinds of cool pictures. You can check Bassa’s blog out at

I don’t think I’m as sweet as Bassa, but maybe there’s a little bit of sweetness in me since I received this sweet award.

The “rules” of this award are the following:

1. Thank and link to the person who awarded you.

2. Share seven random facts about yourself.

3. Pass the award on to 5 more blogging friends.

4. Contact those friends and congratulate them!

Let’s see – what are seven random facts about me?

  1.  I’ll eat anything – fruit, vegetables, meat (mmm), dog food, plastic (yes, even plastic) – except olives. I hate olives.
  2. I don’t like it when Scratchy scratches my nose.
  3. My person won’t ever let me off my leash because she thinks I’ll run away (she’s right).
  4. I can jump really high.
  5. I love to drag my Frisbee through the snow.
  6. I rescued a little dog from a coyote attack once.
  7. I’m a home wrecker (well, maybe just doors, blinds, and washing machines) – (My person made me put this last one in – she said I’d have to get off the computer if I didn’t).

So much for my random facts. Now I need to pass on the awards to five blogger friends. There are two that deserve special mention, but Bassa already beat me to giving them awards. They are Rumpy Dog at and Bones at These are two great dogs with really fun blogs. So, the special moment. My awards go to:

Lola doesn’t get to write on her person’s blog very often, but her person loves to write and has great coffee mugs. Lola visited my home town one time and she reads my blog a lot and comments on it. You can find Lola and her person at .

Tiffany Dickerson writes about her faith journeys and they’re fun to read. She really made my day when she was one of the first to subscribe to my blog. You can find her at

Sandra Branum writes some cool poetry and stuff. Her blog is at

Iowa Dog Blog is a new friend and has great pictures and stories about the dogs. You can find them at

Stealing Faith is a great blog that one of my person’s friends writes. It’s really funny and fun. I don’t even know if she reads my blog, but that’s okay. Her blog is at
Congratulations to my 5 blogger friends. You fully deserve these awards!

To pick up the awards you should:

  • Thank and link to the person who nominates you.
  • Share seven random facts about yourself.
  • Pass the award to five more blogger friends.
  • Contact and congratulate the blogs nominated.

It’s been really hard for me to write all this serious stuff, but my person told me if I didn’t do it I would be in deep trouble.
