Happy Mango Bloggie-versary

That's right! The Mango has now been blogging for one whole year! Yowsa! And I owe it all to my pal and mentor, Bogart, who both inspired me and helped me get started.
I thought that to celebrate I would provide you with links to my most bestest and important post from each month of the year. So here goes...
January - My very first post. It includes several of my favorite things; momma on vacation, a ride in the mastiff mobile, and MacDonald's french fries!
February - My first DWB pawtie! Joey had this amazing super bowl pawtie. As you can see from the picture, I was a bit undone by it all.
March - The arrival of pee-wee. Gee, he used to be a little more intimidated by me when he was just a labrapup. But he's turned out to be an OK pal.
April - This was the month that the Master erected a force field between the old living room and my living room addition. It was really scary (warning, the video contains some very sad Mango sounds).
May - The month I saved Hector Wheelie's life (and one a DWB post on the month award).
June - This was a great day. I got a bully stick, some nice meditation time, and Momma gave me my first sardine (yummers).
July - My cousin, Jack came to visit!
August - I get the most coveted Stain Award from Joey! I had the dye your ears a bit that month. Here is the original stain post, and the one with the judges measurements.
September - Slow month, but I did get to try on some nice hats. I sure am good looking.
October - Alright, this one is about the Pee-Wee, but he does save Momma from being lost in the woods, so I think he earned a spot.
November - The great blender escape!
December - The conclusion of the not to be repeated (I hope) invasion of Lacie. And just so your last view for 2008 isn't about that Lacie gal, here is the aftermath.
So that's it! A year of Mango! I am so happy to be part of the DWB community and to meet so many nice doggies and their peoples. I can't wait to see what adventures await me in 2009.
I leave you with this most stunning smoochie face portrait of my large and handsome self.

Happy New Year!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Lovely retrospective mango man! Moose was deeply troubled by your battle with the force field back in April but i assured him that your bravery was rewarded in the end! Thanks for checking in on us. We have had a harrowing week! Our post about ruptured CCLs will appear in the future but we had to report on our harrowing experiences of the week! Slobbers to you and pee-wee!

Congratulations, Mango! One year of blogging! I have aspirations, but of course The Girl has to cooperate. It is so difficult to be dependent on hoomans!
