Fab Friday

Today was the first real day of spring. It was almost 70 degrees here on the Mango estate. Which got me to wanting to do stuff.

First up, I replaced PeeWee's puppy cage with an actual doggie crate for grown up doggies.

Note that this crate has a fine tradition as it was first used by Grandpa Angus, then by my Beautiful Raja, and then by my most handsome self, so this is a big honor for the little guy.

Next on the agenda, some serious baking on the observation deck.

I instructed Master to retrieve the observation deck chairs from their hibernation spot.In my younger days, I worked very hard to sculpt the deck chairs.Look at the little guy go! A budding artist.I am instructing the squirt on how to pee like a real doggie.No luck thus far...Hmm.. maybe the chairs were a bad idea cause junior can almost see me eye to eye when he is on them.A little recumbent bitey face.Best of all, I decided it was time to open up the swimming pool. Now just need some water.
Oh how I have missed the hose water! Fill 'er up!The pool has ger-shrunk! I used to fit in it.Let's see how the squirt likes it.Mango Man! Oh yeah!

OH Mango! What a fantastic spring day! I especially LOVE the artwork you did on the sculpting chairs...I wonder if I could commission you to do some of that fine work in our dining would be a wonderful suprise present for my peoples!

& little PEEWEE is getting bigger too...don't let him eat too much of the sculpting scraps!

Love & Licks,

That is a great job on the chairs. Mom is going to get us one of those pools. I don't think I will use it but Flash probably will like it.

Hi, Mango!
First you did a great job with that chair and now Dexter is doing it! Does it taste yummy?
Your swimming pool is soooo tempting! I guess you need something bigger!
My mom promised to buy a new one for me.
Kisses and hugs

mango dude, I am so glad spring is springing for you. I definitely think you need a bigger pool my friend. So I got this magic beer machine at my house now, and I think you might be our only hope to reach the handle that makes the beer come out. Check out my blog!!

Yo Mango! Great sculpting job. Our patio chairs are metal so I better not be doing any sculpting although I do have my eye on a garden gnome who looks like he could use a make-over. Dexter sure is growing fast and I can see you love the little pest !! Mama thinks that last pic of you is totally precious

Maggie & Mitch said...

Mitch was a year old before he learned how to pee like a boy but he only had me to guide him! We're anxious to see how long it takes Dexter to learn with you as his leader! Yes, Dexter, Mango is your leader!
Looks like he likes the water! hehehehe

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Mack said...

I think you have a future as a chair designer Mango. Glad to see Dex in following in your footseps!

The Zoo Crew said...

uh oh....i don't hike my leg when i pee.....does that mean i'm not a *real* dog? :( maybe that's a good thing, since mom calls me her baby!

i think mom needs to get out our pool too, especially since willow is home. need to show her the ropes!


Sami said...

Mango what a great artist you and peewee make. Not sure about that hose but I do like swimming pools. Sami loves the water hose!

Did you have green teeth after sculpting those chairs? Heehee

Oh, you need to let me know how you learned to sew, Mom wishes she knew so maybe I could teach her!

Love Baylee Girl

LOoks like you're enjoying your spring weather... finally. You have such a responsibility, mentoring the PeeWee and all, but you make it fun. I like your style.

Recumbant bitey face is the ONLY way to go with these little snarfers. And, I think you guys deserve a larger pool, man. If you're both going to swim this summer, NO WAY you'll fit in there with the PeeWee.

Goober love & springtime smooches,
