The Invasion - Conclusion

For anybody interested in what the gals were up to whilst us guys bonded over a few brewskies, you can check out Lacie's blog. I don't know why she thinks that I, Mango, put those evil Lacie things up around town. Maybe her reputation pre seeded her.
The final act of the Nutcracker and time for my debut! I must say I was a bit nervous, but I knew I just had to be good! So I donned my costume and joined the corp for my first number.

I know what some of you are thinking, "Oh, Mango, you are wearing like a toot toot thingie." Sure, but I am confident in my Mango manness. Plus, the audience loved me. They were all like "oh, ah, I can't believe that is actually MANGO!"

Then it was time for my duet with MJ. I didn't know she was such a gifted dancer! She was light as a feather and the perfect partner.
But let me tell you, everybody has seen the Nutcracker about 29548 times, so I thought, this audience is ready for something new! A big finish! A finish that only the MANGO can give them.

I whipped off those tights (they kind of pinched my most private Mango-ness anyway).

And turned my freak on!

Oh yeah! That's what I'm talking about!

The audience went wild! They were on their feet, stomping and clapping and shouting, "Mango! Mango! Mango!"

Suddenly, I heard the most horrible shrieking sound. Seems a certain small and annoying terrier just couldn't bear all the accolades I was receiving. That's right, Lacie went totally cracker dog!

She dove into the orchestra pit!

That poor conductor must have thought some savage jungle beast was attacking him! She tussled her way through the string section! (Does her butt look like totally HUGE in this picture or what)?

And on to the stage all yelling and yapping Tsk tsk. Not very ladylike.

In no time, the security guys called the police who promptly broke up the mayhem.

Lacie was unceremoniously escorted to South Station and told to get on the next train to PA, no stops, and to limit future travel to places outside of Master Chew Sits.


Agatha and Archie offered to put Maggie, Mitch, Scruffy, and Stan up for the night and MJ went to bail out the mastiff mobile (I sort of can't drive because I don't exactly fit in the front seat).

Back at the Mango Estate, I was eager to enjoy some peace. MJ joined me in the dog cave for some meditation time.


I learned many things this weekend;

1) I am a totally gifted dancer!

2) Never invite more than one terrier to your house without also inviting some "normal" doggies to help keep things under control.

3) MJ is also a good dancer, a good meditator, and a perfect lady. Plus she slobbers and farts which are really endearing qualities in a gal.

4) Lacie is, well, LACIE! 'nuff said.

Mango Man, Oh yeah!

I'm almost ashamed to have her living in MY state of Pawsylvania!

Do woo think oHIo would want her?

Woo sure fill some mean ass tights!

PeeEssWoo: Time fur yet another khurtain khall for woo!
PeePeeEssWoo: I did tell her on her blog woo said terriers were sooooo high maintenance...

Peanut said...

That lacie is something else alright. I just haven't figured out what the something is. haha

Koobuss said...


What can I say?? Sounds like you had a very educational weekend filled with cultural activities. I think that Lacie was just performing some of her very own dance interpretations. She's extremely talented, you know.

As for you, Mango, I never realized that you were so graceful and such a gentleman. You carry yourself with such dignity. I can understand why you might find us terriers a little goofy.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Gus said...

Mango, I want you to know that not ALL terriers are wound too tight. SOME of us are quite Mellow. Like Me. I am a Mellow Fellow.

However, there is no such thing as a Mellow JRT.

I hope you will give us a chance to redeem our breed.


Dewey Dewster said...

Oh my Dog....

Lacie has gone and done it this time....can't believe that she isn't under house arrest....it's a wonder the orchestra didn't all have heart attacks seein' Lacie descend upon 'em like a ragin' bull......

Um, Mango.....glad yer secure in yer manliness cause that ballet dress was too much fer me ta even cast my eyes upon.....

Boston will never be the same....of course the beatin' the Patrriots took from the Steelers on Sunday didn't help either.....

Scottie the 'cutie' said...

OMG...you sure make a great ballet dancer, Mango! Have you considered other genres of dance? I see you got a bit of breakdancing talent too...how about jazz, ballroom and hip-hop to spice up your routine? *wink*

I hope Lacie didn't get into too much trouble...I think she's just a bit nervous coz you're in the spotlight instead of her...=)


Sami & Baylee said...

Sophie Brador said...

Mango Man, You made me long for my days as the principal dancer in the Russian ballet. You would have been a great addition to that company, but you must beware. One cruciate tear and it's all over baby.


Stanley said...

Mango & Labradude!

My booty is totally dragging after reading the last 4 posts on the Nutcracker Fiasco of 2008. You know the Boston Police Dept is STILL talking about you pups!

Would that we could see actual video footage of you in action. And, I think you should not waste your methane - but bottle it for use in emergencies. I'm sure we've all faced situations when we would like to clear the entire room!

At least you now know, for sure, that you and Lacie are not meant for each other. MJ is definitely the lady for you, man!

Goober love,

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

You are, indeed, a gifted dancer, Mango! That orchestra pit must have been really freaked out when Lacie jumped on everyone! We're glad you're back at the estate and resting comfortably!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Petey said...

Mango, on behalf of all polite, well-mannered terriers (ie: Non-Lakies) I may have to make a pilgrimage to Massa Chew Sits to restore our good name.

Just relieved that you left the Ballet with your nuts uncracked.

Your pal (and fellow gentleman),


Toffee said...

What a pawsome dancer your are! Although I am kinda glad that you removed those tights...too much information about the Mango if you know what I mean.

Do you think it was Lacie that caused all the commotion at the Boston Pops opening a year or so back??

The FOUR Musketeers said...

it sure is fun ! And its our first time ! :D

Dozer and Coop said...

Speaking of farts, stop by our blog because you totally ruined the visit from the Queen of England! Now we'll never get to go to England!


Mack said...

Wow - you are a ballet dancer too!?
Do your talents never end???

Joe Stains said...

holy crap dude, banned in Boston!! I probably would be too cuz I'd have to pee on all the Red Sox. You really are an amazing dancer, and I should know since I am the number one boyfriend of world famous Sophina La Brador! I hope you and MJ rest up.

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

We are just catching up with your happenings Mango. What an entertaining weekend you all had!

BOL at you as a ballerina... you did look cool though!

You must all be exhausted!

Your pals,
Holly & Zac

Dear Auntie Momma,

Thankyou very much for allowing my brothers and me to stay at your house. You were a gracious hostess, indeed.

I want to apologise for the mess we left in the guest room. I know we forgot to pick up the candy wrappers and Aggie left a buncha coffee cups around. I may have left one of my blow dryers still on and runnin...I hope you found it. The er small fire in ur chimney was probably from furdryer #5 overheatin' when Maggie blow dried her beardie for the ususal hour and a half it takes her to tame that beast. I hope you have insurance...for once, it wasn't my blender that lit up the sky...ask Noah or Gus bout those prior disasters.

Thank you again for your hospitality. It was very kind of you.



Pee Ess: To Mango...yes..I agree I would far rather work with you than against you...as for the little smolderin' issue, see above...I took one on the chin for ya...or rather Maggie did...get it Mango...beard, chin....DA!!!

Love ya lots...Lac!

Scottie the 'cutie' said...


The package is from the Pay It Forward campaign...not exactly a Christmas present, but it could be an early Christmas present too I guess...hehe!

Hope you have a great day!


Technodoll said...

You have the sexiest legs! Wow!


The she-akita Maika *kiss*

Moco said...
