With pee-wee at daycare and momma working at home, I figured it would be an all Mango day! But nooooo! The stupid working at home involves hours of momma slumped over the pooter and not playing with ME! Every now and then she gets up to walk around a bit and each time I followed to encourage her to pay attention to me. Look! I'm sticking my tongue out! Doesn't that make you want to play with me?
When she got up later to get a drink of water I struck a nonchalant pose in the kitchen. Like sure I could play with you... or not (your loss).But Momma said I was absolutely not cute and was stalking her and I should cut it out. I'm not stalking you! I'm not even looking at you.That's right. Leave the kitchen... go back to your important work crap! I'll be right here. Not stalking.Ha! Snuck up on you huh? I've got my eye on you. No sudden moves!I had to resort to one of my super powerful extra cute faces the next time she got up... but it was wasted "No Mango, I have to work and blah blah blah blah." What a heart of stone she has.Mango Man! Oh yeah!

mango my mom says come on down and she will play with you

Sophie Brador said...

I know that one. My mom was working at home for most of my life and ignoring me. I guess the only real difference is, I tend to ignore her too. But if you want to come live in Montreal, I would never ignore you.


Biggie-Z said...

Maybe you and I could play hard to get with our moms together?

All the doggies in NYC are out of sorts today. No one was playing. It must be a full moon.

Mack said...

Poor Mango!

Why don't you come on over to Texas and we could play while both our Momma's work??

Joe Stains said...

Mango, this whole work business is pretty stupid in general, whether it be from home OR at the actual working place. I don't like it one bit!

Randi said...

Oh Mango..I'm so sorry that your ma was so mean & not paying attention to you..

but belly rubs are all fine & great until you have a rumble in your tummy & the cupboard is bare..

she needs to work to feed your belly...

Its a hard cold fact...but one we all need to accept..

Love & Licks,
Randi ma said she's find a way to work with you ON HER LAP if she had to sit at the puter all day....

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Having your mom at home is great but that she does not pay attention to you does not sound fun!
Come here with me. My mom works all day but my grandparents are all day at home and they can give us lots of belly rubs!
Kisses and hugs

River said...

Sigh. My mom's the same way. She goes away to work, she works at home. I jump up on the chair and stomp on the keyboard. Then she says, oh, River! And gives me ONE MINUTE of smooches. Maybe your mom could do one minute. Or you could stomp on the keyboard, works for me!

love & wags,

G'day Mango

Dude there is plenty of room in my yard if you want to come over and play next time you get neglected! ;-)

Poor Mango! I bet if you lifted your leg or humped up like you were going to do poopies, she would give you lots of attention! That gets EVERYBODY'S attention!

Well, I don't think you're stalking your mom. It totally looks like you are making sure she is safe.....ya know, being a protector!


Maggie & Mitch said...

You can come over and play with us, Mango! We'd love to have you! Autumn says to please bring Hector!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Willow the Black Dale said...

Well Mango my man....that just really stinks! At least you didn't have to go to daycare! You got to stay home and ignore your mom for not giving you attention!! I wish you lived by me because we could hang out!


Moco said...

Why didn't you just knock her over and sit on her?

Niamh said...


It is soooo boring when are people will only work and not play or pet. But I understand that if they don't do work they may not be able to buy us treats and toys which would be terrible.

Your friend,

Poor Mango! But what Randi said is true, Mum needs to work to keep your belly full! 15lbs of kibble a week is a whole lot to get a handle on.

Agatha and Archie said...

This happens to us ALL THE TIME!!!!!!! We both follow them the MINUTE they move out of a room( which is like every 16 seconds it seems) AND THEY SAY THE SAME THINGS!!!!! Love A+A

Saint Lover said...

Oh how could she resist that face?

I would melt like butter :)

Snowball said...

Mango, come over to my place and we will play with you.
