Awards and Hibernation

My friends Tibby and Abby and Maggie and Mitch gave me these nice awards




These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated (what the heck is a self-aggrandizement).




Now I know it says pass along to eight other doggies, but I have trouble with the whole counting thing, so I want to give these special awards to somebody who is just so sweet that my heart melts every time I log into her bloggie;



It is now officially COLD here in Master Chew Sits. As you can see from the thermometer, it is only 4.6 degrees outside (and a shocking 55.4 degrees in the dog cave). Do you see the clock? It says 5:35 AM. I am accustomed to having my breakfast no later than 5:30 AM. I used to have to get Momma up myself to prevent starvation, but I am happy to say that Pee-Wee has taken over that responsibility so I can remain snug in the dog cave until breakfast is actually served.
Given the somewhat alarming temperatures, I have gone into hibernation. This means that except for eating, my only actual activity is smoochie face.

Should Momma be too lazy to actually lean over and massage my large and fleshy head, I am required to hoist myself up to a semi-sitting position thereby facilitating optimal smoochie access.Eat your heart out Junior!Its MANGO TIME!Mango Man, oh yeah!

Doesn't your momma realize that you will waste away from starvation if your breakfast is more than 5 minutes late!

It is cold here but not that cold. Stay warm in your cave.

Your friend,
Niamh

Guys,
It's cold here too! When we went outside for our morning ritual, the thermostat read -2° F. Brrrrrr! We have decided to cross our legs and hibernate for the day! Stay warm.

What... there is a 5:30 AM???? Lucky for me Moose is as lazy as his momma who is only now getting up to get his breakfast! (Though he is looking rather anxious about it!) It is especially hard to get out of bed on these cold mornings but I gather I won't get much sympathy when I say that 'cold' is 57degrees down here...
Stay warm, and glad that Pee-wee is there to order breakfast for you!

Dozer and Coop said...

Mum wants to smoochie your face because it looks so soft and silky. Women! Will send fud to you later today.

Love, Dozer

Lorenza said...

I know it is very important that important things be done in time. 5 minutes past your breakfast time is too much time!
Congratulations on your awards!
Kisses and hugs

MJ's doghouse said...

how could mama resist that big smooshy smooshy face....i get alot of that too...mom doesnt usually leave the house without me so wherever we are together thre is a lot of smooshing going on

Stella said...

Hey there, Mr. Mango Oh YEAH!

Glad you have a fluffy robe on which to rest your massive face while getting into prime smooching position. Looks like your mama knows how to treat a hibernating boy such as yourself.

Word on the street is that you think I am INSANE, but really, I'm just playing mind games with Stanley. See, he doesn't know if I'm insane or if I'm really that tough. I like to keep him guessing. Glad you liked the vids, though.

Stay warm, man!

Goobery love & kissies,
Stella B Latifah

Mack said...

Mom says she wants a smooch from the Mango Man! Would you please come over to my place and provide the kisses since I hate to??!

Kodak the Eskie said...

Congrat on your award! Hey, you get up early. I can't get my mommy up that early, especially when it gets that cold outside. We actually got above 0 degrees today for the first time in 5 days!

Hugs, Kodak

AppleDebbie said...

Hey Mango... My mom says that she would love to rub some noogies on that big ol' head of yours! Brrrr... it's cold in your cave. We have snow on the ground but it's sunny and 50 degrees outside today! Yeah!

Your Pal,
Trooper

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Hibernate! It's time to go Wild!

Moco said...

Stay inside and stay warm. It looking freaking cold at your house. Make good use of those new beds.
Happy Birthday to Dexter. He has really grown over the last year.
We are thinking that Shaun White needs to keep his eyes open and watch closely for Hector at the next Olympics.

Agatha and Archie said...

Hibernate our main man..this weather here is just not right......when does training camp start? Love A+A

Bae Bae said...

Technodoll said...

Mango, your giant head reminds us of a melting caramel chockit sundae, minus the cherry on top. Cuz we already eated it, he he.

We love winter but then again mom says we're utter freaks. Oh well.

Snuggles!

Abby and Jack said...

Hi Mango!

Mommy actually got the chain and speed bump bowl ideas from your bro! My parents went to the pet store to get the speed bump bowl, and it wasn't there, so they decided to try the chain until a bowl could be ordered. The chain works so well for me though, I don't think I will get a funny bowl!

Jack and Abby seem to be getting used to me now. We played Bitey-Face for several hours yesterday and it was super fun! Jack is even letting me steal squeaky balls out of his mouth! I also nabbed a bone from Abby a couple of times! Hee hee! I love my brother and sister! You seem super cool too!

Mango ever though of having breakfast in the dog cave? Save you getting up specially at 5.30am.. keep warm pal.

Wiry wags, Eric xx

Dannan and The Girl said...

WELL, breakfast should NEVER be late! Apparently Pee Wee isn't doing a furry good job of getting Momma up in the mornings!

Hope it's warmed up down (over?) there. Smoochie face is the best thing! Wroo!
