Oh Dog! I am SUCH a slacker! I asked my next guest here WAY over a month ago to be my guest, and then FORGOT all about it! *slaps paw to forehead* I would take total responsibility for this fiasco, but the truth is this is Jen’s fault.
Anyway, today I am FINALLY bringing you my interview with a WONDERFUL guest. He is gracious, because he never even asked me what was taking so long. He is also quite a talented blogger in his own right. I especially love the pics he posts when he tells about his hikes.
So dogs and cats, get yourself in your comfy spot, because you’re in for a real treat. I give you- Bongo!
Rumpy: Oh Dog! It’s so great to have you as a guest Bongo. Let’s start out by you telling us a little about you.
Bongo: I like to run, but that got me in trouble because someone found me running down the street and they put me in dog jail. I was there for a long time and then my person and my younger person came to visit me. I won their hearts by handing them balls to toss for me, and I’m good at catching them and bringing them back to toss again.
Rumpy: That IS a talent! DeDe loves to catch balls, but she doesn’t bring them back.
Bongo: I was really disappointed when they left, but the next day they came back and took me home with them. That was almost six years ago. They had fenced in their yard so they could have a dog, but when they left me in the yard alone it kind of felt like being in dog jail again, so I found ways to escape. Well, they discovered what I was doing and plugged up the holes, but then I discovered I could jump over the fence, so now I’m mostly an indoor dog and that’s fine with me, except I do miss getting out and running.
Rumpy: You are a persistent fella aren’t you? I was like that. I thought I should be an inside dog too, and now I am!
Bongo: When my people brought me home I wasn’t the only animal there. I share my house with a big, black cat named Scratchy. We didn’t get along so well at first, and I have the scars on my nose to prove it, but now we tolerate each other – except when Scratchy tries to take over my blog.
Rumpy: I have the same problem. Especially when June Buggie goes on one of his rants *sigh*. So tell us about your humans. What do you like about them?
Bongo: My person tosses Frisbees for me and takes me on lots of walks. We go on trails near our house and it’s more fun than walking on the street. I do have a complaint though. She never lets me stop and smell things as long as I want to.
Rumpy: I can relate there too! Humans are so alike! What about treats? What are your favorites?
Bongo: I like to eat anything and everything – except olives. If someone gives me something with olives in it I spit them out and eat whatever was around them. I do like fresh tomatoes stolen from my person’s garden, but I think my favorite treat would be a nice, juicy, meaty bone.
Rumpy: I’m with ya there! Well, but I do like cookies too… and peanut butter…. and…. OK, back to the interview. Now are you on Twitter or Facebook?
Bongo: My person’s been on Facebook for awhile, but she won’t let me get on it. I keep trying to talk her into letting me have my own page, but she says she spends enough time helping me write my blog. She used to put funny things about me on Facebook and her friends started asking about me when they saw her, and telling her how much they liked reading about me, so she let me start a blog.
Rumpy: And your blog is way cool! You guys should check it out- Bongodogblog. So Bongo, anything else you’d like to let the readers know?
Bongo: I want my friends to know that laughter is good. When I’m home alone I get into trouble sometimes, but when my person helps me turn it into a funny story she’s not quite so mad at me anymore.
Rumpy: I totally agree with you there! Now, one more question just for fun. If you was a dinosaur, what kinda dinosaur would you be?
Bongo: If I could be a dinosaur I think I’d be a dilophosaurus wetherilli. They used to live in Arizona near where I live so I wouldn’t have to move very far, and they’re famous because they were in the movie Jurassic Park. I could handle being famous. I’d get lots of attention from cute girls.
Rumpy: Oh Dog Bongo, you’ll sure have the girls giving you a look after today! Thanks so much for being my guest! It’s been a real pleasure!
