Children and Loves

Jesus and childrenI’ve been eating humble pie since last week’s Bible story so I can get extra treats. And I still don’t have any.

And humble pie doesn’t taste very good.

Maybe if I can figure out a way to get to the top of the refrigerator I can pull all the treats down – and eat them.

What!? You’re going to tell me a story where Jesus rebuked his disciples?

And he’s going to rebuke me too if I do what I just said?

Do I get extra treats if He rebukes me?

Okay, I’ll listen.


People were bringing little children to Jesus to have Him place His hands on them and pray for them, but the disciples rebuked the people who brought them.


Did the disciples give all those people treats?

What do you mean, rebuke doesn’t mean giving out treats? What else could it mean?


When Jesus saw this, He was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”


Is it alright if I hinder those little children so I can get some loves?

I am listening.


Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”


I can act as childish as you want.

What do you mean, sit and listen?


Jesus took the children in His arms, put His hands on them, and blessed them.


Alright! Jesus gives out loves.

I’m standing in line.

Thanks for the Cookies

Bongo watching a sack of Christmas cookies on the floorMy person says it’s polite to write thank you notes for the presents I get.

When it comes to cookies I’d rather eat them than write notes.

But my person says I’ve got to do it.

I could probably write the note with my slobber.

If I can’t get to these cookies soon I’m not going to have any left though.

My friend and neighbor dog Toby gave me these cookies for Christmas.

Oh yeah, I guess I kind of stretched the truth a little a couple days ago when I said I had a horrible Christmas, because I did get treats.

So here goes my thank you note:


Dear Toby,

Thank you so much for the Christmas cookies you gave me.

They’re really good.

I would have eaten all of them by now, but my person won’t let me.

My Christmas would have been really bad if I hadn’t gotten these treats from you, but any day with treats is always the best.

Oh, and Toby…

Bongo looking at Christmas cookies

I’m almost out of cookies.

Do you think you could bring me some more?

The Worst Christmas Ever!

Bongo in his dog jail on his new bedI hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I didn’t. I had the worst Christmas ever!

Look at what I got. This thing I’m sitting on.

I got a new bed for my dog jail.

Nothing like sprucing up your jail.

I would rather have had something taken away than something new for my dog jail.

Like maybe the locks on my dog jail door. I could easily do without those.

But that wasn’t all that happened to me on Christmas.

I was tormented by cats besides.


First Scratchy tried to steal all my presents.

Scratchy on the floor with presents

Scratchy, those are my presents!

Then my younger person ignored me because he was reading a book about a cat.

Younger person reading Grumpy Cat book

He’s not even reading about a fun, playful cat. He’s reading about Grumpy Cat.

Fine. I’ll grump on his Christmas.

But to make things even worse I had to stop chewing on my new antler to pose for a picture.

Bongo with his antler between his legs

Well, at least I did get a frog for Christmas.

A frog and an antler.

But wait a minute.

Where’s my treats?

Bongo with  a longing look

I thought I was getting treats for Christmas.

Bongo trying to get a treat out of a ball

Do you believe it!?

I have to dig my treats out of this ball.

I hope you all had a better Christmas than I did.

The Inside of the Packages

Bongo next to a small packageIt’s been forever. Forever!

Some packages came for me and I’ve been waiting to see what’s inside – but my person wouldn’t let me open them.

It’s been terrible, having to wait.

But finally, she said I could open them.

The big one! I want to open the big one first.

What? I have to open the little one first?

This better be a two for one deal. I get to open both of them.




Bongo with a new Kong

I don’t believe it! I got a Kong!

This is the best thing ever because treats show up inside Kongs.

I used to have one of these a long time ago but I took it out in the yard and it never came back in.

No going out in the yard for you new Kong. I hope those treats show up inside you soon.

I get to open my other package now? The great big one?

Bongo by a large box

Can I wait for the treats to show up in my Kong first?

Oh, I get it. All the treats for my Kong are in that box. Woo woo!


Wait a minute!

This isn’t a box full of treats.

It’s a dog jail!

Bongo looking in his new crate

There must be some mistake. This must be for some other dog.

If I get locked in here I can’t steal the cat food.

Or mess up my person’s bed.

Or try to break out of the house during a thunderstorm.

Bongo wanting out of his crate

Let me out of this thing!

Bongo looking sad in dog jail

What am I going to do now? I’m in jail in my own house.

This is going to spoil all my fun.

Hey, wait a minute. I’m not alone in here.

Bongo licking his Kong in his dog jail

I wonder what my Kong did to get locked in jail with me.

And there’s treats inside!

Bongo sniffing below a treeMy trails are filled with treasures, and some of them are going to make me rich.

So rich that I will be supplied with treats for life.

First I found a money tree, then I found pearls, and now diamonds!

These diamonds are small, so I’m checking carefully to make sure I’ve found them all.

Diamonds are valuable, so I can trade each one of them for a truckload of tasty treats.

Just look at these diamonds!

They’re scattered all over the ground around here.

Drops of clear pitch on the ground

Some diamond lover could use these to make a necklace, or a beautiful bracelet, or even a diamond ring.

Maybe I should keep some of these in case I want to give a ring to one of my girlfriends.

No, wait. Never mind. I’m sure any girlfriend that I have would prefer the treats to the diamonds. Besides, it would have to be something like an earring for any girlfriend of mine to be able to wear it.

Hey, what’s this?

I don’t believe it! Just what I was looking for.

Clear pitch shaped like an earring

A diamond earring!

I can give this to one of my girlfriends and she can wear it.

And it’s even sticky. What a bonus! It will stick right to her ear.

Which girlfriend should I give it to?

On second thought – would anyone like to trade an earring for some treats?

That way all my girlfriends will be happy.

I’m Rich!

Bongo in front of a bushI found it! I found it! I’m rich! I’m rich!

I just found the best treasure ever on my trails.

I didn’t have to dig for it. It’s not a buried treasure.

No. It’s right here in plain sight.

Well, it’s a little ways off my trail and that’s probably why nobody found it before me.

But now I found it, and it’s mine.


Oh, you can’t tell what this plant is that’s hanging out behind me?

Bush with round white things on it

It’s a money tree! And it’s all mine.

Can you imagine what I can do with all the money from this tree?

All the treats I can buy?

I’ll be in treat heaven. And then everybody will be coming and giving me loves so they can have some of my treats.

What? You can’t tell this is a money tree?

Check this out.

A cluster of round flat white things on a bush

Do you see the coins hanging on this tree?

Two clusters of coin like things hanging from a bush

Look. They’re all over it.

Now don’t get any ideas.

I found this tree and it’s mine.

I’m not telling anyone where it is.

But if you’re real nice to me…

Bongo smiling in front of the money tree

I might give you a coin so you can buy a treat.

Treats and Loves Twice

Bongo at the VetTwo times this week! Do you believe it? I got to go for a ride in the car and we stopped at the treats and loves place twice this week. That’s never happened before. At least that I remember.

That treats and loves place is pretty cool, but I still can’t figure out why my person keeps yelling at me when I’m in the car. She always wants me to lie down, and then she keeps yelling “back.” She’s sitting in the front of the car. I don’t know why I can’t be up there with her.

But I guess I’d better tell you what that treats and loves place is. No, it’s not the doggy spa. I’m too cool to go there. It’s the vet. They see me coming and they get out the treats. They love me there.

Don’t tell my person though – she doesn’t know because they left her behind and just took me into the room – but I had to work really hard for those treats. They poked needles in me. I’m not sure why they do that. Maybe they had to test to see which kinds of treats are my favorite. I could have told them that, though.

When I left they told me to say hi to Scratchy – so after we got in the car, my person yelled “back”, and we made it back home I hurried in the house to give Scratchy the hi.

And you know what Scratchy did?

He growled.

Scratchy on his cat cage

I guess they don’t give Scratchy treats and loves at the vet. I wonder why.

Could I Just Have My Treats?

Bongo waiting for the door to openI was really excited today when my person went out to the car and then came back for me. She didn’t even have to tell me. I jumped right in.

I’m not sure why she won’t let me in the front seat when she’s driving, but at least the ride wasn’t long.

We got out at the vet. I love going to the vet. Treats and loves. That’s what I get.

I made a new friend when I got inside. A poodle. He greeted me at the door.

And then one of my people friends came to get me.

She checked me over and then left the room. I stood patiently looking at the door and wagging my tail, waiting for her to come back so I could get my treats and loves.

Bongo between the vet and the technician

But they were holding off on those treats today, and picking at me instead.

Bongo between two people with their hands on him

I tried to get my person to make them stop and give me my treats, but she seemed helpless to do anything.

Bongo's hair in the comb being checked

I don’t know what they were finding so interesting in my hair.

If they wanted a souvenir so bad they could have just cut a hunk of hair off. I wouldn’t mind. But please give me my treats and loves.

Bongo being held onto while his hair is combed

This wasn’t quite the kind of loves I had in mind.

They found what? Little bugs attached to me? Tics? Do they taste good?

I’ll settle for my treats then.

Oh yeah? I might have given bugs to Scratchy? I bet I did because I kissed him this morning.

Make sure you tell Scratchy I made an appointment for him so he could get picked at too. And no treats for you Scratchy because you don’t like going to the vet.

That’s what you get Scratchy, for walking away in the middle of a kiss.

Treats for Everyone

Bongo's Campaign PosterA couple days ago they had this big thing called the Presidential Election. People got all excited and some people ended up happy and some people were not so happy.

I think that everyone should be happy, so here’s my plan.

I’m going to run for president.

If I became president everybody would be happy. That’s because I’m going to campaign on a promise of “Treats for Everyone.” How could anyone not be happy with that.

Dogs would get treats, and people too. I’d even make sure that all the cats got treats.

I figure this is a foolproof campaign. How could anyone not vote for me when they’re getting treats?


Oh. My person just told me that in order to give treats to everyone I would have to raise taxes, and nobody likes that.

I don’t think that’s a problem. I tax in loves and everybody likes to give me loves. All you have to do is give me a few extra loves and I’ll turn them into treats. Problem solved.

So remember in the next presidential election to get out and vote.

Bongo in 2016! Treats for Everyone!

They’re Here!

Scratchy and Bag in PackageThis is Scratchy here. While Bongo is in the hallway trying to hide from all the thunder we’re having today I thought I’d sneak onto the computer and steal his blog. Actually our person said I could. She even told me to.

That’s because I have some news. Awhile back Bongo’s friends Geraldine and Mr. Cheddar had a contest at their blog My Real Life Reviews. Bongo wanted to enter it but the contest was only for cats and their people, so Bongo entered me. And guess what. I won!

I got three different prizes and the last one just showed up so I thought I’d share them with you – well, at least the pictures of them.

The first one was a bag with cats all over it. My person said she had a use for it so I thought I’d be generous and give it to her. Actually, I couldn’t figure out what I was going to do with that bag anyway.

Then a package came with a book in it. The book is called Crafting with Cat Hair. I was afraid Bongo would to steal all my hair and try to do something with it so I guarded that package carefully.

Scratchy on top of package

But the best package just showed up. It’s full of cat treats and a little catnip. It even came with a letter from Mr. Cheddar and now he’s my friend too.

Scratchy rubbing his head on his bag of treats

My person put the treats back in the box, but even the box is good.

Scratchy rubbing on the box full of treats

What, person? I didn’t understand you. I’m in this treat euphoria here.

What!? What do you mean I have to get Bongo something? Just because he entered me in the contest and I won?

Okay, fine. Here you go Bongo. I think some deer lost his antler so you can have it.
