Outside Bitey Face, Bowling, and Catching Up

Alright, lots to discuss, so this is going to be a long bloggie.

First of all, I was totally NOT pleased to see the liberties that pee-wee took with my bloggie on the day I so graciously allowed him to post. I have updated the banner to remind him of who is the big dog around here. Needless to say, I had to give him a good talkin' to. Come on, midget, say uncle!

Once he apologized, I was amenable to engaging in some serious big yard bitey face.

OW! Hey! Not the lips!
Dexter! Watch out or your face will freeze that way.
Is it any wonder that he gets sore leggies? I mean, come on, are legs suppose to bend that way? You can see from my ears how alarming I find his contortions.Time out for some roaching.Jowly close-up.OK, squirt, I'm getting tired, how about you?
Yesterday, when Momma told me she was taking the day off from work, I figured, great, a WHOLE day for Mango. Sadly, that was not the case, because Momma and Master decided to take Cousin Jack bowling. Huh?

Now for those of you who live in the wild country west of 495 , here in Master Chew Sits we do what is known as Candlepin Bowling. Which means they use small bowling balls.
And the pins are shaped differently, but the scoring is still the same. Plus, you still have to wear funny shoes (Momma was mad because they gave her the shoes with Velcro laces because they figured she was too ancient to tie her own shoes).

Here is the bowling alley.
Here is cousin Jack showing off his form.He thinks that doing chicken neck helps more pins come down.He's yelling at the pins! Fall down!Nice form.Master made his body follow the track of the ball.Hmm... guess the ball should be going right.Is he giving the ball the finger?Momma is lucky that there are no shots of her because due to her current addiction to Trader Joe's macaroni and cheese, she has developed the jolly butt.

Good news is that all three of them were pretty equally bad at bowling. Momma won the first game, Master won the second, and Master and Jack tied in the third (but the highest score was 79 so I guess they won't be appearing on Candlepins for Cash anytime soon).

The Three P's tagged me.
What is your name? My official AKC name is Lords Hill We All Love Mango.

If you could change your name, what would it be? Bubba, because that is what Momma and Master usually call me.

What is your pet's name (it can be a webkinz or a real pet)? Nightwinds Dexter in the Dark - hey, they brought him home for me, so why can't he be my pet?

If you could change your pet's name what would it be? Pee-Wee Midget Hump Meister Pain in the Butt

What is your brother or sister's name? Jake (he is my human brother)

If you could change their name, what would it be? The Mango Whisperer because he can always talk to me.

I have to tag as many people (or critters) as letters in my new name!

So I tag my favorite gals, MJ, Baylee, Paris, Asta, and Cookie!

My friend Petey gave me the the Arte-y-Pico award. Thanks, pal.
Here are the rules:
1.) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogger community, regardless of language.
2.) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3.) Each award-winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4.) Award-winners and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of the "Arte-y-Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5.) To show these rules.

I am giving the award to Khyra, Biggie, River, Snowball, and Deetz.

And little Gaia gave me this super award.

Now the rules are to pass the award on to 7 doggies, but I am passing it on to ONE dog who is so HUGE that he qualifies as 7 regular doggies, my hero, Joe Stains!

Wow, I am beat!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Don't tell you mom, but my mom busted out laughing when she saw your mom's velcro bowling shoes ;)


Cyrus The Great said...

Yeah Mango! You show that dog whos boss!! I think they underestimate us sometimes. (but I do admit, I am a bit soft hearted)
Mango, you and I have a lot in common dude, we both like to eat, we both have big jowls, and most importantly, we both like to meditate! (my 'rents seem to think that I am just dozing off like some dummy, but little do they know, I'm devising a new plan to get more poopy snacks out of them.... we really get no credit!)
keep in touch!

River said...

Good deal taking your blog back! My pack had to oooo and ahhh over your relentlessly huge bitey face face and jowls. Just magnificent!

We do duckpin bowling down here,probably the same thing. (did someone say DUCKS?).

Congratulations on your awards! Your blog (and Pee-Wee's, yeah) is so much fun to read. Thank you so much for giving me the Arte-y-Pico award. That is one beautiful thing!

love & wags,

Maggie & Mitch said...

Do Cousin Jack and Master realize that their shoes don't match?! How embarrassing for them!
We love your blog header, Mango! That's telling Dexter who's boss of YOUR blog!
Congratulations on your awards! You deserve them all!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Moco said...

You show that upstart how to behave. No one is to get the best of Mango. That bowling game looks like great fun.

Joe Stains said...

omdog, thank you for the award, I am so honored. Do you think I should ask my Mom for 7 treats today for being as huge as 7 dogs??? Candlepin bowling looks fun but I don't think I'd be good at it since I kind of don't have thumbs. Glad the humans enjoyed themselves.
