In Search of Marrow Bones

My new friend, River, gave me this nice award.

Thanks, buddy, I'm almost a daily blogger, but you know how lazy the peoples can be. Speaking of which, Momma was home from work with the sickies today, so not much happened. Yesterday, it was all raining and stuff, but since it was cool enough for me to go in the mastiff mobile, I suggested that a marrow bone expedition was in order.

I was glad to see that the stinkin labracage had been removed from my ride, but this little cozy blanket was still there.

Pee yew! I think he barfed on this.My friends Agatha and Archie told me that we could buy giant sacks of marrow bones at the Whole Foodies, plus, its a great place for momma to spend tons of money.But when she came back, all she had was some soy milk and bananas. What a total letdown.Not to worry, I instructed her to drive like the wind to the dog store where not only do they have a big freezer of marrow bones, but also.... car cookies! Oh boy! A UPS man!Whilst I was out running errands, I instructed pee-wee to go in the basement and fire up the giant freezer so that it would be ready for the arrival of marrow bones. When he went to check if it was cold or not, he was surprised to stumble along momma's secret science project.That's right, over the winter while the freezer was off, momma magically transformed green beans into a brown, foamy liquid. That ain't food!Pee-wee reported that the freezer wasn't even getting cold and must have totally died over the winter. Not good news.Although since there is no room in the little freezer for my bones, I should just have them all at once... NOW!At least this time I actually got a Mango sized bone. Yummers!Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Sorry about your freezer. Those are some good looking marrow bones. I wish we could get any of that good stuff in this crappy place we live.

Agatha and Archie said...

Oh we can't believe they didn't have any!!!! Maybe not all of them have them....Just say the word buddy and we'll bring you some!!!It is a great place to spend LOTS and LOTS of moola isn't it??!!!! Love A+A poor freezer....

Joe Stains said...

that bone is bigger than Tanner's BUTT and that is BIG! Sorry your freezer died, that is pretty sad stuff right there :(

wally said...

Oh so tasty. I think that bone might be the same size as me. And I still think I could handle it.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Congratulations on your award!
Marrow bones! Yummy!
And that cookie looks delicious too!
Are you going to get a new freezer
Kisses and hugs

Snowball said...

I think it might not be a bad thing that the fridge is spoilt. That just means that you will get all the bone once its bought right? It will be fresher in that way.

You are one lucky dog to have such a big marrow bone.

Sorry about your freezer. That would not be fun to clean out.

That's a great looking bone. I like to do errands too. We have that kibble puke smell in our car too thanks to Arrow. Especially when there is food involved. Nice job for the award. You deserve it.


Toffee said...

RIP to your freezer and the "science project."

did you enjoy your marrow bone?

Mom likes Whole Foods but doesn't really go there that much because she'd buy out the whole store as all the food looks bootiful...oh and she'd put us into great debt if she did that which would mean that she couldn't buy us our $$ dog food!

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Hey Mango.. that UPS man looked yummy... but be careful, if you eat him then he won't be around to bring you pressies, ha rooo!!!

Moco said...

Get that freezer fixed. You need a place for those bones and frosty paws. No experiments are to be done in it.

Saint Lover said...

Oh my goodness.. that "let down" picture is priceless. My heart wept a bit for him.. lol

I hope you got that freezer working cuz I have a new treat for you to try out.. I think you guys are going to like it too! Look for it in the next day or two.

Mack said...

Mom totally loves that Whole Foodies place. But she never brings us back any Macky treats - what's up with that??
Anyhoo, that pic of your oh so handsomely large mouth fixing to chomp down on the UPS guy cookie is priceless!!!

Ike said...

My mom screamed when she saw those beans!

Booker the Treeing Walker said...

I'm with you on the car ride. I like to stand on the backseat and look through the front windshield. I'm not one for hanging my head out the window - I like to see where we are going.

It took a little while, but he's fine now...unless Bruvver is drivin'...yeppers...then he barfies all over the place....yik!!!!!

Cute Lakie Barks,

Abby said...

Hi, Mango...

That is one HUGE bone...It's bigger than my whole head...

You will need two freezers if your Mom gets too many of those marrow bones for you...


Abby xxxooo

Stanislaw said...

My humans will sometimes get us marrow bones from Whole Feasts too, but they're not as big as yours. Now THAT's a quality, Mango-licious snack! Man, does that gigantic marrow bone look like feasting tastiness. You are one lucky Mango.
