Boring Day

When Momma said she was staying home from work today I got pretty juiced up! I figured Running of the Errands time for sure so when she got the keys to the mastiff mobile, I was ready to go!

But she said I had to stay home. Bummer.

It seems that somehow momma hurted her back really bad and had to stay home to get better. She went to see some weird snap snap doctor who used one of these on her.

Momma claims she does not know how she hurted herself so badly, but I think THIS might be part of the problem.

That bad Pee-Wee always jumping and bouncing and pulling! I am sure it is his fault!

And so what might have otherwise been a fun day turned out to be TOTALLY BORING!

Nothing to do except watch Jarrod climbing up and down the ladder...

And messing about with Rick putting some stuffs called soffits on the barn.

Due to her bad back, Momma hasn't been able to even walk the squirt, which has made him even more insane and annoying than usual.

I thought a nice meditation was in order, but the little shark face kept pestering me, "come on, Mango, let's play, huh? huh? huh? Is it time for bitey face now? Huh huh?"

"come on, bitey me, bitey me." Sheesh!

I was finally able to find a safe haven in through which to transport my large and bored self (I used many nice words in that sentence, but I'm not sure they are supposed to fit together that way).

Even though I was still kind of mad for being left alone with an insane labradork, I gave momma lots of smoochies when she got home because she looked so sad. (Momma says ignore dorky look on her face because in addition to the snap snap doctor she also went to another doctor who gave her some feel better pills).

Hee hee. Momma tried to take these pictures herself, but I think her arms are really too short.

I sure hope Momma gets better soon because she says we can't even work on my mastiff moves because I tend to body slam her when I am dancing. Sigh... not even cute face helped today.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Mango Mom has a secret, she hurt her back on Monday and has been going to the snap snap doctor too. She isn't much fun either. Dad wouldn't let us go to the lake yesterday for fear that Mom would go rock climbing and really mess herself up. Sure hope your mom gets well soon. We wouldn't want you to be bored to long..

Oh Mango, we're sorry you didn't get to go with yer Mama, & that she hurted her back, DawgMom has a bad back too she has that Degenitif Discus Dizeez & Pappy doesn't help when he's a brat like Dexter. Maybe we could ship Pappy to you fer a while & he could occupy Dexter.

Eric said...

Poor Mango Momma. Hope the snap snap (ouch) did the trick and maybe a smoothie or two of the non Lacie kind might help. The Lacie kind would be better for Peeweee.

Sure hope that Clacie hasn't got you in her little black book Mango. Reckon being bored is way better than that fate...

Stella said...

Did your Mom really use the jackhammer on the cement floor? Whoooo, that would lay almost anyone up.

Our very best wishes for a quick recovery to your Mom.

If it helps, I had a boring day too. My mom was busy throwing some stuff out and didn't want to quit. So I been in and out all day and no walkies for me either.

The OP Pack said...

Tell the Mom to take care of herself and rest that back. We feel badly for her, back problems are very painful!!!

And Mango, you can help her out by playing with the Dexter - keep him busy.

Woos, the OP Pack


Hi Mango,

Si sorry to hear your Mom is having problems with her back. My Mommy has messed up discs and pinched nerves in her back so she said she knows how bad she feals. Mommy takes whar she calls "the cure" every night....she sit with the heating pad on her back for hours, Has your Mom tried heat yet?

BTW, I just love the last picture. You gots a beauruful smile.


Niamh said...

Your poor momma. I hope her back gets better soon and that you make your little brother feel terribly guilty for jumping and pulling on her. BTW, I think that you have a great vocabulary.

Your friend,

Joey said...

Oh, your poor Momma. I hope she feels better soon. It looks like you're starting to make her feel better already.

See ya!

The cutie face didn't work?!?! That always works! Don't bust my puppy dreams of the always working cutie face! :)
I'm sorry your mommy isn't feeling good. Hopefully your brother won't drive you TOO crazy!! Just sit on him...that seems to work!

Lorenza said...

Joe Stains said...

We sure hope that your Mom feels better soon! :( If not, slip Dexter one of those feel better pills and maybe he will finally take a nap.


Back pain- ouch. No fun.. insane pee wee. What a day. Let's hope momma's feeling better soon. I have a feeling pee wee will be in trouble if not.

PS mango could make a good heating pad if it's just a muscle strain.


MJ's doghouse said...

Amber and Nala said...

That is a great safe haven you found! I must say that Dexter does look very cute in that close-up shot though. :) Hope your Momma feels better soon and it was fun seeing pictures of you and her.


Tee said...

Hello Mango, We hopes your momma gets well soon and is fit enough to walk hyper Dexter. Our Chief hurted her back a few times trying to hoist yours truly down the stairs ... and we know the 'neglect' that follows when our humans are not able to play actively with us.

Oh, by the way, we were watching Dog Hotel last night and one of the Dog called Lenny looked exactly like you! We were just wondering if you starred in the movie ...?

Tom and Tama-Chan said...

We're very sorry t hear about your mom's back. Aside from the pain these things cause our people, it is all very inconvenient for us when they're not running at 100%!

Believe me, Mango, I too hate it on the few occasions when she doesn't tae me with her when she goes somewhere!


Martha Basset said...

Hi Mango
We are sorry to hear about your mom's back - being in pain is no fun at all, we hope she is better soon.
In the meantime we dont think it is anyone's fault and you should be nice to your brother!
That barn gets bigger everytime we see it - it looks like it could become the headquarters for all world events!!
You are a good dog giving your mum a hug - that is very good for her - just try not to fall on her..........

Brind'Amour said...

Hi Mango,

What's a soffit? Can you eat it? Can you nibble on it? Why is it so far out of reach? Maybe if they lowered it for you, your boring day would not have been so boring.

PS - Hope your mom feels better!

Becky said...

Mango, We are sorry your Mom wasn't up to par. After the adjustments she had with the jackhammer she should be gooder than snuff and not near so dusty real soon! Take good care of her and let her mend. The barn is looking real good!

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

Pee ess...changed my mind bout walkin' Peewee...just tie him to the mastif mobile bumber...we'll wear him problem...


misskyliem said...

I know all about Mommy's with bad backs! My Mommy hurt hers and kept having to go to a doctor lady who gave her shockies and exercises to make it better. It's usually ok but sometimes I hear her tell daddy it still hurts. I think you need a big igloo to hide in! :) That's why I use my Nite Nite (crate) for! AND I don't even have a Labradork-- I mean LABRADOOOR to hide from! BOL It's amazing to see how big you are compared to your Mom!


dewdana said...

Oh dear! SOrry your momma is feeling too poorly to adequately entertain you boys! Moose has done a number on my back on a few occasions... we always hurt the ones we love, no?
If you are really bored you and dexter should stop by since Moose finally got to answer your Tag! Thanks again.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Mango and Dexter,
Please help!
Axl, Autumn's little brother has accidently bumped his head and has been very sick after that: vomit, seizure, hasn't eaten for a week, please, I'm begging you to visit Autumn's blog to support her and sending positive power to help for a good recovery!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Mango, Ximui and Chubs

Suzuki said...

You better take good care of your Mum fur now Mango and keep the peewee away from her.
Big licks to you

Holly said...

I sure hope your momma feels better soon! My momma has the same kind of snap snap doctor cuz she has a bad back too. And, hers has been pretty painful lately too. But, she has some of those feel better pills to help too.

Snooter smooches!


Noah the Airedale said...

Hey Mangos mum, are you feeling any better? Crikey we sure hope so. Bad backs are horrid things. Um in the second last photo it kinda looks like Mango in all his hugeness is on top of you think that might be a bad idea??
