Belated Dexter Burbday Presents (and Mango too)

Before I get started, I have several news items to share...

First of all, imagine my horror when I saw this posting from my beloved MJ. That's no way to treat a lady! Am I going to have to fly all the way to British Columbia and give that little scamp a talkin to? Don't think I won't.

Dexter's cougar gal, Randi, could use some healing vibes. She is having the seize hers and not feeling well.

My good friend Callie had her first success herding sheep. I knew she could do it! She also herded goats. Callie lives in some wild place where it seems there are always beasties wanting herding.

And it turns out that the mommy of Tinkerbell, Oscar, and Tucker made a gingerbread Mango! 

On to the main topic. Today we got a package from Scruffy, Lacy, and BabyStan!

That's odd... the card is addressed to Pee-Wee
He was very excited to get his own package. What could it be?

A one year burbday card! Scruffman picked out the card and I think BabyStan picked out Pee-Wee pressie.

Whoa! A giant jolly ball! The squirt wasted no time taking off with it!

But what is this? Something for the Mango from that Lacy gal!

Please ignore shop vac and general disarray in my living room. Why, you ask, is the Mango walking around with the monkey in his large and voice box crushing jaws?

Because it screams! I think Lacy must have recorded her voice and put it inside this monkey! It sounds just like her!

Pee-Wee took the jolly ball into the dog cave where he keeps his hump piggie.

Nom, nom, nom. I think he likes it.

I, on the other hand became curiously fascinated by the shrieking Lacy sounds emanating from the monkey.

Until Momma said she couldn't stand it anymore and confiscated it! Sigh, guess I will have to enjoy my new monkey for only brief periods of time.
Thank you so much for our pressies! They are perfect.

Mango man! Oh yeah!

P.S. We are still a bit Inedible Apple challenged. Momma says she is going to have to learn the HTML soon to work on our bloggie and she still isn't sure exactly where the photos go that she loads into the machine.

What cool pressies! I especially love the shrieking monkey! How pawesome!

As for the bowl and the stinky pup...yes, HORRIBLE! I hope you never have to go through that. :)

Enjoy your pressies!


The OP Pack said...

Lacy isn't going to be very happy with the Mango Mom. That's one cool monkey - the noise is half the fun. And stop telling us about your Inedible Apple woes, Mom will never get one.

Woos, the OP Pack

Tibby said...

Chef said...

I love that shrieking monkey! Mama took away my squawkball too because the noise drilled a hole in her head! Don't you just love those animal noises? Kinda brings out the beast in us... anyway, that last picture of you is a prizewinner, Mango. You're like me - even when you're happy you look sad. It's the wrinkles, man.


Lorenza said...

Those are great presents!
Enjoy them!
Mango, you look so sad in that last picture!
Kisses and hugs

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Man, Mango...you look pawsitively devestated in that last pic...if ya make Lacie feel too sorry for ya, she's likely to run up for a visit to check on you...you better cheer up quick!!!

So glad you like the pressies....

Happy belated Barkday to Peewee!!!!

Scruffy, Lacie and Babystan

Biggie-Z said...

I have a Jolly Ball too! My brudder Tex gave it to me, and I really like to slam it around like a dumbchuck.

Tell your Momma that if she uses iPhoto directly to download pix from her camera they automatically go into her iPhoto library, and she should use that method ALWAYS for new pictures. (Like literally, just plag the camera into the pooter and turn em on and iPhoto finds the camera and asks you if you want to import the pictures)

Pictures that are emailed to her and then saved end up in the "Downloads" folder, and you get them into your iPhoto library by choosing "import to Library" and then going to your downloads folder and clicking on everything you want to import.

Also sometimes your pictures can end up in the "Pictures" folder which is not the same thing as "Photos" in your iPhoto Library. You can upload pix to blogger from any of those sources directly, but if you want to consolidate your pictures you should just use "import to Library" to get all your pix in one place.

Oh great, now you made me go back and import and moon over all the kuvasz puppy pictures our breeder sent us before we got Biggie!

Joe Stains said...

Hm so the inedible apple is eating photos?? weird.

I can't even imagine going on a date, alone, with a shrieking Lacie! Mom would probably take that toy away in 2 minutes.

Bae Bae said...

Yeah those are pawsome gifts. ;)

Noah the Airedale said...

That monkey sounds like it's in pain. How's the Jolly ball holding up? Is Pee Wee sinking his teefies in.


Maggie and Mitch said...

The new monkey sounds like the real thing, Mango! We hope he doesn't make those awful noices when your mom and dad are trying to sleep!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Allison (Dog Mom) said...

Cool presents. Does Lacie ever shut up? Hope the non edible apple collie wobbles get sorted out soon. Indie gestion tablets might help.

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Great presents... We have had that chimp before. It is very noisy but such fun! BOL

Holly & Zac...XX

Noah the Airedale said...

G'day Mango & Dexter,
You were wondering about the rasher of bacon...well it's the eye of the bacon with the tail attached. I hope this makes sense.

Noah (I love bacon)

Stanley said...


Scruffy, Lacie & Stan know how to send a good present, that's for sure!

I have to say that the last photo of you is one of the most pathetically sad photos of ALL TIME! My girl wanted to reach through the pooter to give you a comforting smooch & to scritch on your relentlessly huge head!

Cheer up, bub.

Goober love,

Amber-Mae said...

Very nice pressies you got there Dex!

Butt wiggles,
Solid Gold Dancer

Moco said...

What nice gifts from your friends. Where do we get one of those monkeys? It would drive the old fire monkey crazy.

Nibbles Treats said...

Fun presents! Glad you guys can share with each other!

Wish we still had the gingerbread house. We would send it to you as a gift but it was donated. The kids at Shriners Hospital got to enjoy looking at you... I mean, it.

Have fun!
Tinkerbell, Oscar and Tucker

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

You guys have so much fun. That ball looks like lots of fun..
Thanks so much for your comments on Callie. She is one proud pup..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie
