Saturday Errands and Rain

Time for the Running of the Errands! Momma said we had four stops, just like I have four leggies so that I can keep track of our progress.

First stop, the gas station to pump high priced fuel into my mastiff mobile (don't worry, I think the $3.52 was for special fuel, not mastiff mobile fuel - I certainly hope so, or there won't be enough money left for Mango treats).

BORING! Let's continue already. Then we went to this dog store that we almost never go to. Needless to say, I was quite eager to see what upscale foodables this new store might have.Huh? That's it? We went all this way for... glucosamine? You're kidding.That's more like it, a little doggie biscotti.Then we went to Trader Joe's. Let's see, gas station, right front leg, weird dog store, left rear leg, Trader Joe's, right, uh, left, uh, two, uh, six... I lost count! All this math is making my head spin!
Alright, we can dispense with all that counting because here we are at last at our most important destination.Momma didn't want to let go of her end of my car cookie until she got a good photo. Subsequently, here it is entirely in my mouth with her holding on to one end saying, "wait Mango, don't bite it, we need a photo!" Come on, I already counted to four about 500 gajillion times waiting for you, give me the cookie already, this is my best sad face ever!In honor of opening day for the New England Patriots, a football (notice that it is still intact despite its previous journey into my most cavernous mouth).What's that I spy? Is there a bully stick in Mango's future?After much dillying and dallying about that wasted the rest of the afternoon, finally, it was declared bully stick time. Pee-wee took his into his bunker.But even though it was nighttime and pouring rain, I insisted that the only way to properly enjoy a bully stick is in the great outdoors. Can you see me? I feel like a dog of the wild enjoying his fresh kill out on the plains.After only an hour, Momma insisted that I come back inside. Thereupon I donned my Super Mango cape! Get away, squirt, I am Super Mango!With just one shot of his super vision, Super Mango can make cookies leap into his mouth!My super cape is also a disguise. I could easily be mistaken for an ottoman, providing good cover as I move with stealth about the estate.Does this cape make me look fat?Thus we conclude another action packed day in Mango-land.Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. This just in! My buddy, Chef, gave me this cool award!

What a fun short trip you had Mango! Oooh, that football cookie looks delish. Yum! I so loooove bully sticks! The last one I had was last year when one of our doggy friends from the US mailed us some. Too bad Malaysia sell none. I go sooo wild over it!

Your mouth must be enormous to fit a whole football in it! Bet that football cookie tasted delicious. I love bully sticks too. Glad you got to enjoy yours after all those errands.

Your friend,

Dear Mango...thanks goodness you didn't eat your car football cookie until your mama had a good pic of looks absolutely yummers in your gargantuan mouth...

& I humbly accept the award from Little PeeWee...he's quite the cutie as well...& I'm honored he has a crush on me... I feel like Demi Moore with Ashton Kutcher...guess that makes me a COUGAR!

love & licks,

Chef said...

Mangoman, you look like master of the house in your red cape... it doesn't make you look fat - just substantial. Hey, is there any truth to the rumour that Hector is missing and was last seen on ebay? Better get on it, Mango.


Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

You don't look fat at all Mango! Just relentlesly huge as always. You better take a look around for Hector. It seems he may have been wheelynapped! Either that or he has a twin on Ebay.
Sunny & Scooter

River said...

Running errands is lots of fun when you get rewards like car cookies and bully sticks.

Great pix Mango man!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh Mom and Dad are Packer Fans even though Brett has left. They are cheeseheads all the way..

Georgeous said...

Careful out in the rain, bully stick or not Mango or you'll only ever eat glucosamine and never the more bully stick. No bully stick in the UK, plenty of rain though.
Love George

Dozer and Coop said...

Cool Cookie Mango Man! Mum is watching the Patriots and the Bears right now (she is originally from Chicago-land). We love your cape, it is a pretty color on you BOL! Tell your Mum you need a BLUE cape! You're a guy dog!

Love, Dozer, Dottie and Cooper

Kirby said...

What a great day you had! Mom wants to comment that she would love some of that cheap gas. We are stil paying around $4.00 in Chicago, which just sucks. It does take money out of the Kirby treat fund, and that just sucks too! Your football cookie looked oh so yummy, but I was totally intrigued by the giant bully stick. That looked delish!! I do hope you enjoyed it out in the rain.

Your pal,

Scottie the 'cutie' said...

Cool cookie treats! The bully stick looked good too! Your trip looked real fun! I love going in the car too...*grins*

Congrats on your award! Hope you had a great weekend too...=)


Deefor said...

Girl Girl Hamster said...

That sure looks like a fun trip. Super Mango is pawsome...

Noah the Airedale said...

Nah that cap makes you look like a dog of steel matie...some kind of super dog.


The OP Pack said...

Wow, Mango, that was one very long bullystick!!!! Just the right size for Mango-Man. Maybe if woo wear your cape outside, woo can learn to fly and catch that frisbee tomorrow.

Woo, the OP Pack

Peanut said...

Hey mango man does that glucosamine work for you? Mom is wanting to get something for me but there are so many options she doesn't know what to buy. Nice football cookie and a bullystick. What a day. Oh and where in the world do you find a cape big enough for you?

Dewey Dewster said...
