More Vocals, More Snow

Imagine my surprise when I read Pee-Wee's bloggy from yesterday. I didn't even know he went anywhere as I was consumed throughout the day practicing my large and enviable meditation skills.


By the time pangs of extreme hunger compelled me to stagger to my foodables bowl, the little dude was home and taking advantage of the temporary placement of one of our decorative pillows upon the floor.I have found another use for the labradork. He makes a great snow plow. Here he is clearing a path for me. How thoughtful.Momma got the bright idea that somehow throwing most choice and tasty treats in the snow would be good mental exercise for us. Now the Mango is not too keen on all that mental exercise stuff, but I was clever enough to use Junior as a scout to locate possible hiding places.Then it was only a matter of giving him a quick muzzle butt out of the way and pursue the now snowy beggin strips.I know its in here somewhere, must be getting closer...Got it!

Note to Momma. This game is NOT FUN and way too much work for the Mango.

What's this? There he goes, messing with my ball again.

I like to yell right in his face at these times. Clearly he is most intimidated by my strong and versatile communications.

Momma has been letting Pee-Wee run around the yard nekked because she says I grab his collar with too much vigor. Big deal.

I can lay on a smack down anyway.

My next door neighbor dog, Maggie, has had bad sickies for a long time. She has the doggie die-and-beet-knees and gets injections twice a day. But today she was feeling much better and has gained back some weight, so I gave her some words of encouragement. You can kind of see her peeking from between the bushes at me.

Oh yeah, unless anydoggie is mislead by that obviously retouched photo of the Squirt yesterday with him all claiming to be a full sized doggie, well, I don't think I need to say more...

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Hi, Mango...

I guess you told him...

It was nice of you to say Hello to Maggie...I'm sure she was glad to see you...I hope she keeps feeling good enough to come out & visit...

That treat/snow thing doesn't sound like fun to me...I like my treats warm & dry & properly placed on my tongue...

Abby xxxooo

Mango dude, you hafta be nicer to your labradork brother! I think you must have shrinking rays at your house and every time Pee Wee comes in he gets shrunk down. Or maybe that means you really are hugamongous.

I have a feeling I would look like Pee Wee next to you!

P.S. I am totally up for the toy piling contest, I'm just trying to figure out how to run it.

Peanut said...

Mango my mom was laughing so hard at the video of you and dexter. She said that is EXACTLY how I am when Flash has a toy I want Oh man she's still laughing.

Moco said...

It is easy to see that you are the one in charge and will always have that position.
What is your momma thinking with all this mental exercise? That is just plain nonsense. We all know of your superior mental capabilities and they are not to be messed with.

Eduardo said...

Wow Mango! You let Dexter have it! Poor Maggie! At least she was able to say hello to you, I'm sure that made her feel better! Mommy says it sounds like you was talking in the video! So funny!
Hugs & Snugs

Niamh said...

Good strategy Mango! Let the little guy do all the work of plowing paths and finding the treats. And when he wasn't deferential enough, you let him have it. Good job asserting your superiority.

Your friend,
Niamh

Tibby said...

Hi Mango!
That game doesn't look like much fun at all! At least you had Dexter there to help you! It was nice of Maggie to come out and say hello. I hope she is feeling better.

OH, Mango, be careful there, we thought woo were going to get lost in that snow mound. And yes, woo definitely have a strong communicator way about woo.

Give Maggie a woof or two from us.

Woos, the OP Pack

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Oh wow... that snow looks fun but very cold, especially when you have to put your snout right in to get the treats... hehe

BOL at you shouting at Pee-wee with the ball Mango...

We would love to come and play with you guys in all that snow. :-)

Eric said...

HaAA!! Were you paying Pee wee back for his day out with Mama yesterday? Strange he did look big yesterday but small again today...

Wiry wags, Eric xxx

Dannan and The Girl said...

Mango, I like your style in allowing Pee Wee to do all the work! I think I might enjoy finding treats in the snow, so The Girl might try it with me. Thanks for the idea! I know it's not for the Mango, but I quite like sticking my snout into the snow.

You sure can smack down that labradude! Who needs to grab a collar for that? Not the Mango!

I'm glad your neighbour-doggy is feeling a bit better. It's very good of you to keep her spirits up.

And next to your magnificence, Dexter definitely is NOT a full sized doggy!
Wroooooo!

Joe Stains said...

You had Tanner talking back today! I am glad your neighbor is feeling better, I am sure she appreciates your kind words. I am also glad my eyes aren't that bad and peewee really is a peewee.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
I am not so sure but I think I will leave the treats there! Too cold for me!
Poor Maggie. Glad she felt well today to come and say hello!
Kisses and hugs

Technodoll said...

I say, what a brilliant idea! We'll have to ask our mom to throw cookies in the snow for us: it's like a Happy Meal! :-D

By the way, drop by our blog... there's a cool giveaway!

Smoochies,

the akitas

Dannan and The Girl said...

Mango, when we were catching up earlier, The Girl forgot to THANK YOU! We are so excited and honoured that you nominated us for the Awesome Blog Award over at DWB! We never imagined when we started our bloggy this summer that we would ever find such good furends as we have in you! Thanks Dogness for DWB and the furry great folks that started it! And THANK YOU again, our furend! WROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Randi said...

Awww Mango! I think that foodables game in the snow is just a bit too vigorous for THE MANGO MAN...She just needs to give you the treats in her hand & not in the snow...

Little Dexterlabradude looks very cute snuggling with that pillow...

love & licks,
Randi

Stanley said...

Yo Mango!

LOVE the new header photo. That has got to be one of our fave photos of you this year!

Also, loved the vids, especially because we got to hear the musical stylings of your massive voice. You have a very mellow sounding voice! Looks like Pee Wee doesn't so much listen to you as he can't get around you to get to the ball. Good moves, though.

Goober love,
Stanley

By the way, I might try that corgi suit idea.

We're worried you guys are going to be buried in all that snow. Don't stay out there for too long. You'll freeze to death.
