Preparing for Demolition

I had a very busy day today and I think I will need to go to bed early and wait until the weekend to catch up with all my friends.

I started the day off with a trip to the salon for my spring cleaning. Here I am on the return trip all shiny and sweet smelling.

Upon my arrival back at the estate, I observed that a temporary fence had been constructed around the barn.

Given the recent mishap at Noah's place with the temporary fence, I had to inspect it to make sure the Pee-Wee would not breach it to go chicken hunting.

Whilst doing my examination, a great creature even larger than the Mango arrived (I really do need to insist that somebody clean the camera lens soon).

That's our friend, Peter standing proud with his barn demolition machine.

Naturally I am eager to provide whatever assistance I can and Momma was thoughtful enough to purchase me a special green hammer. I accidentally kind of confused Momma's hand with the hammer when I took it in my large and useful jaws causing her to make peculiar sounds.

The Mango is ready for work!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

You will be an excellent sidewalk supervisor Mango. Rest up as it seems you have a lot to do in the next few days.

Your friend,

Abby said...

Wow what a big yellow monster! How long did it take to get the barn down? I'm sure you made sure he did it all right. Darla Jean is the supervisor around here. She's good at it too if you need her to come help so you can take breaks.

Be kind to your Master this weekend, Mango, watching that barn come down is going to be like ripping off a particularly steadfast bandage very slowly. But he'll build it back, even better! And show some kindness to Momma too, she's had a long winter.

Now put on some music and start dancing cuz it's Hammer Time!

Your pal,


GoldenSamantha said...

That's a fine looking tool, Mango and I'll bet you'll be a great help! I too like a guy with a tool belt! And that machine is definitely bigger than you - be careful!
With licks and Love,
Sammie xo

How cool of you to help Mango. We hope it goes well.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Dad calls those things kamatzoos! He says they can eat a building up in record time! Be careful that evil machine doesn't get you and your spiffy new hammer, Mango!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Noah the Airedale said...

Excellent matie, thanks for reminding everyone of the importance of good fencing. You don't want to go through what we did the other week.
Looks to me like you've got the situation pretty well under control there. Good work!!


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

Mango or Tango or whatever your big slobbery self wants to be called...YOU TOLD TOFFEE SHE HAS A BIG BUTT...



Now...did you get all of that??


Love, Lacie

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

Hey Mango...can we borrow that hammer? We know a little Lakie who could benefit from it!!!


Gus said...

Mango sure to get your picture taken with the big machine. Some girl dogs are suckers for heavy machinery

teka toy

with love, Madison said...

Mango, we think Madison is developing a soft spot for construction workers! You need a toolbelt and you are good to go. No CATCALLS please!

Amber and Nala said...

What get to have a demolition day!! ;)

The OP Pack said...

If I had a hammer , I'd hammer in the morning . . oh, never mind.

Hope woo get lots of videos of the demolition day - don't forget to wear your tool belt.

Hey Mango,

Your friend Ass-ton sure is cute.
Hope he gets a bloggie real soon.
Let me know if he does & I'll go right over to visit him. I bet you will be a great help to the demolotion mna. Maybe he'll even give you a ride on his BIG CAT.



I think u and the peewee could demolish the barn much faster and for a cheaper rate.

Oh you look! gee your fur smells terrific!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
All that work is going to take away your smelly scent giving you a manly one!
Have fun!
Kisses and hugs

Stanley said...


I'm catching up on your last few posts, and I'm DYING here. In the post where you're running with PeeWee, when I biggified the photo with your jowls flappin', you looked just like James Earl Jones! Seriously! I had to call my girl in to verify, and yep, that's who you look like!

You had quite a few award winning photos in these last few posts. The mango juice squirting from your jowls, the handsome big-headed photo among the tools... Are you trying to impress anydog in particular? Haven't you already won over MJ?

Please tell Dexter that my girl LOVES that Dexter show, and she probably could have guessed that was where his name came from. Glad he found a labragal who could outrun him. A little humility can go a long way!

Hope the barn demolition goes well!

Goober love,

Martha Basset said...

Hi Mango
You certainly do seem to be getting into the role of construction worker!
Kinda sad for your humans - extra licks required.

Murphy Dogg said...

Hey Mango,
I'm jealous, man. Destruction on purpose?? That's awesome! Good luck and have fun with the demolition.
On a side note, I read your tip about getting out the Frontline for ticks, and the ticks are out in force. BUT ... Frontline does NOT repel ticks! It'll kill them within 24-48 hours, but that's still long enough to get Lyme's. A few years ago, we were using Frontline and Trudy and I both got Lyme's anyway. Now we use K9 Advantix, cause it actually repels ticks. Just thought I'd share.

Tee said...

Woooo, your mom and dad ought to invite us dog woods pack over. Demolition is our middle name ... you should see my human's manicured garden ... its manicured-no-more!

Arf!Arf! We're very proud of our work but we've all been sentenced to the Dog House for the strangest reasons.

Licks and Wags,

Joe Stains said...

Dude that giant machine says CAT on it, I would be very suspicious if I were you. Keep an eye on that thing, seriously.e

Moco said...

That machine has nothing on Mango man. You and that hammer have this whole barn thing under control. That is what we think anyway.

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Oooh you look so nice and clean Mango. I love it!

Dannan and The Girl said...

Mango, my friend, what exactly is the look upon your face in that first photo? Is it a result of spring cleaning? The Girl has been threatening it for weeks, just waiting for the last of the snow to melt, she says. I will study your picture carefully so as to get it right when it is my turn.

You will be of immense help when demolition starts on Monday! (ha ha, Girlie made a pun!)

Ludo van puppy said...

Is it down yet Mango? Don't forget your hard hat, I bet you will make a pawsome forman on this demolition job. I likes your new hammer lots.
~lickies, Ludo

wally said...

Uh, that thing says "Cat" on it. I don't mean to alarm you but it appears that the cats in Master-Chew-Sits are mutating. Be careful, man.

Sami & Baylee said...

Kess And Her Mama said...

Hey Mango, shouldn't the spa come after a hard day's construction work instead???

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

hey Mango, is the camera lens sporting some Mango slobber perhaps! It would be far too precious to clean it off if so.
