Monkey, Meditation, and Sardines

One of life's mysteries. Why is there a black and tan calendar on the wall instead of a mastiff one? Oh well, never mind. Today I finally got a bully stick. Gimmie!

Bully sticks have been very scarce around here ever since the arrival of peeweemidgethumpmeister due to the fact that I am totally humorless about the idea of anybody getting it into their pea brains that I might actually share.But junior was otherwise occupied, so I got some quality time to myself.Then momma told me she had a new monkey for me. OK, its about time. Bring it on.
Not interested. That's just stupid.
Exhausting... It is now officially summer and totally hot which the Mango Man does not like as I overheat too easily. To help cool my large and handsome self, I like to lie on the kitchen floor.And really just minding my own business, but I kept getting interrupted because momma thought I just had to be filmed.
That's just plain annoying.

So its been like a week since momma obtained the sardines for me, but the dotty old hen forgot about them so I suggested that today might be a good day to try them. I directed my gaze to the cupboard where they were hidden.Sure enough, she opened the cupboard and said, "oh, I forgot all about these." Duh!
Oh my! Yummers!!!Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Mangoman! You snore just like I do. I just don't understand their fascination with a snoring dog,, they snore and I don't go whipping out the camera. People are wierd.

You're da man, Mango. I love your face!

We're just the opposite!! We hate the cold but LURVE the hot summers. It's over 90 degrees here today and we all got "bathed" with the hose in the hot sun and then did some sunbathing to dry off. Ahhhh, the best!

Peace + Paws,

Mango, I'm not so much for the hot either. But I might be or the sardines. I must talk to my mom.

I've been moping around all day because of the heat. I am totally realizes how incredibly large you really are - I had one of those monkeys (before I lipo'ed it to death), and next to your giant head it's just a wee little thing.

Saint Lover said...

OOOH bully sticks... blah! My dogs LOVE them but WOW do they stink icky. I love big dog snores :)

Bless Mango, what a sweetheart.

Mack said...

I thought when you were turning around you were going to poo on old Mr. Monkey in the video!
That bully stick was huge! Mom looks for the smallest ones for me. Not fair.
And I know how you feel about the calendar situation. Mom has one of a ROTTWEILER! The nerve.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Sure it was so rude of your mom to interrupt your meditation time!
The bully stick and the sardines look delicious! Glad you enjoyed both!
Kisses and hugs

Peanut said...

mango get your mom to get whole frozen sardines. They are sized better for your hugeness and very very tasty. That monkey was stupid

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Mango...did ur mom actually think you might be impressed by that monkey?? A Dog of ur Dignity??? Pee Wee yes, you...we don't think so.

BTW, we're not dignified at all and we ADORE that stoopid monkey...sounds a lot like Scruffy when he barks...!!!!!

Um...we've never heard a dog snore...we're not sure they do. So we assume, you WERE SLEEPING ON TOP OF A FROG. where you lie in that kitchen. Obviously, frogs have escaped....


Did ya squish it????? EWWW!

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Maggie and Mitch

Moco said...

What is with that tiny monkey. You need a large one like that bully stick. We are going to have to get some of those sardines.

Toffee said...

I am glad that your mom finally remembered your sardines, they looked yummy!

Hay Mango!

Mindy Lu said...

PAW Mango! Mom said those Sar Deans looks disgusting and she wont even go near them to let us try them out. Looks tasty to us. Does it taste like that stuff we find in the white sand?

It is starting to heat up out here too. I finally get why The Princess liked drinking out of the huge water hole where water flies up and lands on top of us while we are trying to drink.

What a great mix of Mango akhtion and inakhtion -

I'm tired now !


Biggie-Z said...

Howdy Mango! Looks like you're out of the doghouse again. MAybe now would be a good time to ask your Momma for a whole raw salmon head to eat. They are pretty tasty and they take a while too. But they smell a little and my mom won't let me take it out of my crate. :(


Georgeous said...

Woah Mango, you are such a big dude! I've never had a bully stick, I asked Mistress and she didn't know what it is...oh well..
Hey you should hear my Master he does big phat snores, I really don't see the fascination with us K9's, Mistress says me and Master do synchronised snawling...
luv 'n' slobber
