Mango Burbday!

Dexter here!
Before I get to the main topic of the day, I need to show you the torture device that was introduced this morning.
Yes! Its a bowl with bumpies in it to prevent me from consuming my foodies in the fashion I have grown accustomed to. Now it takes me almost longer than the Relentlessly Huge to eat my chow. This is no way to to treat a labradude!
Oh well... I was very upset when the Relentlessly Huge told me that his burbday had come and gone on Sunday and nobody even mentioned it!!! The guy is three years old and never had a burbday party. I felt sorry for him.
Plus, I was feeling just a wee bit guilty for inflicting the mortal wound on his monkey (yes it was me).

So I decided to cut the guy a break and throw him a party. I wanted to find party hats and looked everywhere for them.But there were none to be had (jeez, what a dull place this is). I was able to find some ribbon which I took into my bunker to see what I could make.Gee, this ribbon stuff is hard to handle without thumbs.I persevered and made what I thought was a really festive hat for Relentlessly Huge and gave it to him. Surprise!Humph. After all my hard work, he doesn't appear impressed.

Hector did a much better job with his hat (must be the wheelies).

On to plan B. I managed to liberate this brand new stuffie from the dog drawer.What do you think? Pretty cool, huh? Almost like a monkey.See how much fun it is?OK, if you aren't interested, I'll just put the snake in my bunker for... safe keeping shall we say.0 for 2 and I only have one surprise left. Its a Happy Birthday doggie cake (well, it used to be Happy Birthday, but it kind of melted). He seems intrigued.The suds are going, that's a good sign...He's smiling! Hooray! Happy Burpday, big guy!Dexter Done!

Kirby said...

Oh Mango, I'm so sorry that I missed your birthday. Dexter did a nice job trying to make a great party for you. That snake looked cool, but the cake looked better. No wonder the suds were in full effect. Happy Birthday big guy!!!

Your pal,

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh my lord, Dexter you should have mentioned it earlier. Now we feel dreadful. You did a great job trying to cheer your big bro up.

Mango matie, Happy barkday to you and we're sorry this is so late.
We hope you had a great day.

Jamie said...


Congratulations on being another year older! Three is 21 in human years, so you should ask if you can join the next time your Mom and Dad "embibe" (fancy word for having an alcoholic beverage). Great job Dexter of taking care of the party that the humans obviously forgot about!

Hugs and Smooches,
The Labragals

Maggie & Mitch said...

You little sneak, Dexter! Were you going to keep Mango's birthday a secret from us forever?! Happy birthday, Mango! Tell me again, Dexter, who the stuffie snake is for?

Love ya lots,

Maggie & Mitch said...

I have one of those bowls too, Dexter! Mine is red! Maggie finishes eating before I do and it really ticks me off but mom says it's the safer way to go so I gave in!

Yer friend,

Mack said...

You are just the greatest little brother ever for remembering Mango's big day (even though it was a little late!)

Dex, I think you really should call AireRuby so we can have a DWB late surprise party for the big guy.
I'll bring the beer.

happy belated b-day big guy!


Sophie Brador said...

Hey Dexter, Can you please give Dexter a great, big, giant labradude kiss from me. Well, except that I'm not a dude, but you know ... I am sort of a lab.

Happy B-Day Mango!


Cassidy said...

Aw, poor Mango! Happy belated birthday to you! Hope you feel a bit cheerier now.

Good Job to Dexter for trying to throw you a party...I woulda taken the snake too though!

And I'm so excited you were nominated for blog of the month! We love reading about your adventures! You totally deserve to win with all the effort you and your mom put into the blog! Woohoo for nominations!

jen. said...

Awwww Mango... How sweet of the lil runty labradude to try to do a good thing for your birthday. And how generous of you to let him keep the snake-y. Bu has one of those slow down bowls in big dog size -- but we don't use it anymore. Happy Birthday dear boy. Grace2you, Jen and Bugenhagen.

Boo said...

hi dexter & mango,

i've added both your burbday to the event calendar.

btw, dexter, your name reminds me of the killer show DEXTER!!!! hope you are not that physco!!

wet wet licks


babyphat523 said...

Awww! Happy belated Birthday Mango Man! It looks like Dex tried to make it up to you for killing your monkey, because that is one snazzy bow-hat he was able to fashion for you with his puppy mitts. :)

We were looking at a bowl like that for Chums because she's like a Dyson with her kibble, just like Peewee. Do you think it is helping him slow down a bit? I worry terribly about bloat.

Sami said...

Oh Dexter you gave Mango such a nice pawty! Your very thoughful!

Happy Barkday Mango!
Your lovie dovie girl,

Deetz said...

Randi said...

Oh Dexter! YOU DID GOOD! What a wonderful way to suprise Mango R.H. I bet the big guy LOVED everything you did!

HaPpY bUrPdAy DeAr MaNgo!!!!!!!!1

Happy Burpday to youuuuuu!

Love & Licks,

Biggie-Z said...


What's a burbday? Is it anything like a birdday?

Sounds like you have your little labradude running around trying his best to please you (like labradudes should). tee hee.

My friend Harry the Belgian Shepherd is 3 years old today and I played with him for his burbday. We play really rough and he chases me. You'd like him. If you put the two of us together we might come close to your relentless hugeness. Actually, we probably wouldn't. Harry's only a little guy, like 70 pounds or so.
