Suction and Pool Malfunction

Before I get on to the main topics of the day, I am pleased to announce that thanks to my diligent gardening.








We have actual Wally-melon growing in the garden. It is still small, but it will grow. Yes indeed!





Back to our topics. After the big house cleaning yesterday, Momma said she needed to get a real vacuum. So today, this box arrived.




We were both very curious.Uh oh. We didn't know that there was assembly required.I volunteered to help with the instructions, but they were all in Spanish! Oh no, I need help from Lorenza pronto! And why does it say Mango in the instructions?Whoops, OK, here we go, the English version.Thanks to my help, Momma was able to assemble the new vacuum machine.As you might recall, it was just yesterday that we had the emergency house cleaning, so the house should be clean, right? Momma took the new machine for a test drive and here is what it picked up out of the living room.Yowsa! I think I see some Grandpa Angus hair in there. The new machine has a light to tell you when the floor is clean and Momma went back and forth like forever until the light turned green.Here is what came off of the carpet in the study just a day after cleaning with the old vacuum. Momma is a true believer.That was fun. Now time to go out in my big yard. I was distressed to see that my swimming pool was empty!Upon closer inspection, I discovered bites which had compromised the structural integrity of my pool (bites consistent with some particular pee-wee midget pain in the butt).Lucky for me, Momma was close by to give me some fresh hose water.Some individuals need instruction on how to drink from a hose and still maintain your dignity.Like this, little dude.Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Oh, Mango, you have such fun adventures for us to read about. We have a vacuum like yours, but it has a different name, something about Dyson, whoever he is. It always manages to find more fur no matter how many times Mom uses it.

Too bad about your pool. Will you be getting a new and improved one?

Woo, The OP Pack

Peanut said...

sorry about your pool. We got a new vacuum a little while ago and it cleaned like that. Mom was amazed.

Dozer and Coop said...

Just how does your Mum know that the hair comes from you? Is she doing DNA testing? Maybe some dog came in during the night and shed? It could happen!

Mango pal. I have missed you. I snuck onto the puter and thought I would try to catch up with my friends. My typist (mom) is in New Mexico so I have been bored. I decided to eat a pillow and have it explode all over. Dad didn't seem to mad. teehee
Anyway, so sorry to hear about your pool. That is not cool at all. Dexter will get out of this puppy phase one day. Maybe.

Hey did you ever find Hector?

Nose-Pokes,
Willow

Patches said...

That Pee-Wee is going to have to buy you a new pool!

Wanna know what I did the other day when we went to the park? I jumped right into the lake where the ducks swim! I was still on a leash - but I surely surprised my mama who wasn't expecting me to dive right in!

Petey said...

Mango, you should be doing testimonials for that vacuum cleaner! With your now bald grandfather!!!

Wonder if it would make Dexter look like a Mexican hairless?

Your pal,

Petey

Hi, Mango!

Oh, Dexter! I hope he has savings to buy you a new pool!

That vacuum cleaner looks really strong and effecient.

I am glad that your pool is still in 1 piece and thanks for showing me how to get fresh drink from the water hose. I gonna try it one day.

You are right, mummy loved the crystal Grandpa Angus from your other post.

Mummy says she had the same enlightenment when she got her first Dyson cleaner!

Mango dude..you gotta get your humans to build you one of the cement ponds like on the beverly hillbilies....and i may need your help...we have to go to dubai and rescue the camels....and the trip wouldnt be right without my big relentlessly huge man....

Booker the Treeing Walker said...

Mango, who made all that hair? Are you feeling naked? Wow we are impressed with that vaccuum! You need to get a real watering hole or something - that little pool isn't cutting it ...

Deetz said...

You can borrow my pool if you want too. I was freaked out in mine cuz the water was soooooo cold. Well water! Can't wait to see the watermellys...Woe that vacuum works really great....I have a feeling my mum is going to want one now.

Haa haa Pee Wee is hilarious though clearly he has no idea on how to drink from the hose...

Mango,
If there was any way to send you our pool I would FedEx it over immediately! We don't like it and never use it. My mom got a new steam cleaner and it is soooo scary!
