Snow... Again!

I decided to sleep in this morning because I figured that with all the snow I would be denied walkies.
Sure enough, one look out the door and a Snow Emergency was declared.Are you sure? Doesn't look so bad to me.
No, we had to shovel! Oh, the horror!
When Mom shovels my paths for me in the yard, I like to follow reeeally close and head butt her to keep her moving along which makes me a Bad Dog. Oh who cares? At least I'm having fun.I decided to do a little landscaping and relieve one of my bushes of its lower branches.
After brush removal, its important to crunch it down to little pieces.I briefly considered trimming one of the baby apple trees, but decided not to since the last time I trimmed the fruit trees I kind of got carried away and completely ate them and Master had to buy new trees (oops). (Hey, MJ, check it out! I'm totally naked!).I am sorry to report that Momma is quite keen on examining my poops. As a result she noticed some corn kernels that looked suspiciously like the food she puts out for the birds and critters. So, this morning, after she put the food out, she spied on me (not nice). And I was totally busted!Oops! Hey the squirrels eat my food, why can't I have some of theirs?Sigh, I think its going to be a long day.Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. from Momma - I'm not a big fan of cute kid videos, but this one cracks me up every time! So I figured I'd post it for any of you humans that need a good laugh.

Your mom should let you eat that corn as payment for being her personal landscape artist!

I too would eat all that bird food, yum!

I wish we had some snow, I love sitting in the frosty grass but reckon snow would be excellent.

Mango, that sure is a nice new collar and chewie. The snow looks like fun! We aren't allowed to eat the bird and squirrel food either...we don't seem to be able to digest it and it sometimes produces "accidents" in the house in the middle of the night. What a bummer!

Mango, you seem to be quite happy out there? Oh my dog, that video gave me a good laugh too! They both are too funny.

Love licks,

You Mom SHOVELS for you? Serious? You have her really well-trained. My Mommy makes me plow with my head. It's fun.

Sami said...

Hi ya Mango! My mom & hooman sista Allie laughed at the video..too funny! I told my sista Baylee the ST. about you and she thinks you're one big hunk of a Mango! You and her have a lot in common with eating trees. Mom trimmed the branches on one of the trees she likes to attack but know she jumps for the higher branches, she thinks she is under-dog or something like that. She also says she wishes she had a bed like yours! Licks & Kisses Sami oh and Sista Baylee send Kisses!

Joe Stains said...

wait, so your mom buys food for animals other than you? that is downright despicable!

Randi said...

Oh Mango..those human pups are so silly...if they were real pups, they would be playing bitey-face craziness...& then get scolded by their ma for rough-housing..

Corn..mmm...maybe you can get a side of squirrel next time...

Head butting is good...keeps humans on track..

Love & Licks,

Mango! I would do anything to come play in that snow with you, and I promise not to hump you if you don't hump me. I have a thing for trees too. When I was a pup, my mom planted a dogwood in a totally stupid place and I had to unplant it and move it for her. Well, it was a dogwood. You'd think she would realize that I'm the horticultural expert when it comes to dogwoods.

Bwah! That's waaaaay too much snow for me. Aren't your feet about to freeze off? You need some all-terrain boots like I have :)

Sami said...

Hi ya Mango! I just added your link to my website. Baylee is so excited and drooling all over Mommy's computer keyboard!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Sure you are a good helper! You should get paid for that landscaping!
Too bad you are not allowed to eat that corn!
Kisses and hugs

Peanut said...

oh I like to eat sticks also. No bushes in my backyard anymore though. That video was quite funny

Hey Mango Man,
Aren't moms strange sometimes. Mine looks at my poop, like there's a winning lottery ticket in it!
You look good in the snow! In fact, you look good where ever you are!

high five paws,
Cookie and crew
