Turkey Trail

Bongo on the trail with red rocks and blue sky in the backgroundI don’t mean to make all my friends jealous who live in different places with lousy weather but – yes I do. I’m going to make you jealous.

Because we had the most perfect Thanksgiving Day ever.

There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the temperature was pleasant.

The parking lot at my trails was so full that cars spilled out onto the street – even as far as my house.

Every two minutes it seemed, my person was pulling me aside so people could pass.

I did get to get loves from one little boy.

His face was at the perfect height for kissing.


But something was missing from my trails.

After all, it was Thanksgiving so I figured there should be some turkeys running around somewhere.

So I started sniffing around to see if I could catch a turkey scent.

I’ve never seen a turkey on my trails, but you’d think at least one would show up on Thanksgiving.

I thought the dry wash might be a good place to go.

Not many people or dogs go here so I figured if a turkey was around it might be brave enough to show itself.

Bongo at a bend in the dry wash and still not seeing the turkey

Here turkey, turkey!

Come on out. It’s just me.

You’re safe here.

I’m not having any luck finding turkeys.

Either they’re really good at hiding, or there just aren’t any around.

Bongo ready to head home - still missing the turkey

I give up. Guess I’ll head back home.

I hope my younger person didn’t eat all the turkey in the fridge.

Turkey for Me!

Cooked turkeyI don’t believe it!

This is too good to be true!

My younger person came home this weekend just to make me a turkey.

A nice, juicy, meaty, scrumptious turkey!

All for me!

I am in dog heaven right now. I can’t wait to get my jaws around that turkey.

It smells so good.

Hey younger person, that turkey is just a little bit out of my reach.

I know you don’t like me counter surfing, so do you think maybe you could just put the whole thing in my dish?

Bongo giving the sad look with a turkey behind him on the counter

You’re being kind of slow with that turkey, younger person.

All you have to do is pick it up, take it over to my dish, and drop it in?

What do you mean, you’re not going to do that?

I thought you made that turkey just for me.

What!? It’s not for me?

But this is my house. Aren’t all turkeys cooked in my house made for my benefit?

I guess I’ll have to do some counter surfing after all.

Oh please younger person. Can’t I have just one little bite?

Where’s My Turkey?

Bongo looking for turkeyYesterday was Thanksgiving and I was left home alone. Well, Scratchy and I were left home alone together.

It seemed like we were alone for a very long time, so after I messed up my person’s bed and tried to get into the garbage – that little wrapper fell out on its own – I swear – I decided to pass the time by taking a nap.

And I had lots of dreams. All about turkeys. Turkeys were running through my house gobbling away. I tried to catch them, but they ran away. You’d think Scratchy would help me – aren’t cats supposed to be good at catching birds? But Scratchy was taking his own nap. He must have had his own turkeys running through the house.

But then my dreams got even better. The smell of cooked turkey wafting (did I use that word?) through the house. And turkey meat filling up my dish so I could eat to my heart’s delight.

Finally, I heard my person’s car drive up and my dreams went poof. Maybe they were prophetic (another big word?) and the turkey would be coming through the door.

In came my person, and she was carrying a big plate of food – turkey and other things – and did it smell good!

So where’s mine? I was ready to gobble that plate of food up and my person wasn’t giving it to me.

What!? No turkey? This is Thanksgiving! Dogs should get turkey too.

Bongo getting turkey

Sorry person. I never should have doubted you.

Thanksgiving Turkey Day is the best!

Dog Hotel

Bongo and the Dog HotelOh man, I can’t believe it. My person is leaving today. Something about Thanksgiving. I think that’s the holiday where I’m supposed to get turkey, but my person is going away and she’s not taking me. Oh, she’s taking me somewhere alright. She’s taking me to the dog hotel. She said something about wanting to spend Thanksgiving with family. Well, aren’t I her family?

My person said she’s going on an airplane because it would take too long to drive and she doesn’t think I would like the airplane. I don’t like the dog hotel either. I’ll go on the airplane – if it means I get turkey on Thanksgiving.

But wait a minute. Maybe the dog hotel has turkey on Thanksgiving. After all, they do give us room service. Maybe that dog hotel isn’t so bad after all.
