The Mango is Back!

It seems our cable modem had reached the end of its life and was no longer able to transmit all of my Relentlessly Huge packets, so we had to ditch it and get a new one and now I AM BACK! Be patient with me while I catch up with all your exciting news.

While I was away, Amber-Mae had her puppies! You can read all about it by clicking on the picture of her in the sidebar.

As a point of clarification, my Burbday is May 4th. When I sent DWB my burbday of 05/04, they thought it was in Australian and put it as April 5th. This was all most confusing to myself. Momma says if any doggies sent me a pressie already that I have to wait to open it. Is that right?

Master has started the second story on the barn.
Work has slowed down due to rain delays and the fact that Master is old and can only go up the f&$*ing ladder so many times a day.

Whilst we were bloggy deprived, I instructed Momma to put herself to good use by making some pupcakes. Mindful of Waldo's most unfortunate pupcake incident, Momma placed them well out of reach of my large and pendulous jaws to cool.

When it was time to sample them, I showed my usual gentlemanly behavior.

Others went absolutely cracker dog googly eyed.

Speaking of Pee-Wee, why do you suppose he is eyeballing my mastiff mobile?

Because he is now only allowed to have his pupcakes inside. This is due to his irrational fear of the Mastiff Mobile which is required for transport to wonderful destinations such as agilities. Every day he has to show that he is not afraid to get in.

But every day, he is most cautious, even when tempted by peanut butter muffins. He is always hopeful that he can reach his goal without actually getting in, but Momma is very tricky and knows his limits.

You can observe that the silly little brat wastes no time in exiting once he has cleaned up his foodables.

This all puzzles the Mango who likes nothing better than a ride in Mastiff Mobile. Dexter is one strange little dude.

All that is required of my large and ever hungry self is to look adorable.

Whoops! These things ARE googly eyed good!

In fact I scored a giant goober on the dish washing machine in my pupcake crazed state.

Ah... satisfaction.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Welkhome Bakhk Your Mastifness!

PeeEssWoo: Yes, I'll say I know Kira - she's a furry nice SiberGirrrrl!

Tibby said...

Hi Mango!
I am glad that you are back! It looks like your master is doing a great job on the barn! Those pupcakes look delicious!

Jake of Florida said...

Welcome back!!! That last photo of your Relentlessly Huge self would make a perfect ad for the cupcake manufacturer!!!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Peanut said...

Welcome back. I'm glad you've got the modem stuff figured out. Can you have your mom ship me some of those pupcakes?

Minnie-Moo (Rescue Lab) said...

Those pupcakes look tasty!

Dexter, I love riding in our car, if you were in the UK I'd show you how fun it can be :)


Niamh said...

Glad to see you back on line. Those pupcakes look delish. I might get a little googly eyed if I saw them in person. Too bad that Dexter is so afraid of the Mango Mobile. I love the dog-crate on-wheels and, as dopey as he is, Ambrose has learned to love it too. We always get to go fun places in it so what is not to like.

You barn is really going up fast. Your master is doing a good job on it.

Your friend,

The OP Pack said...

Glad to see you back, Googly-eyed Mango. Peanut butter muffins - yummo!!! Your mom treats you so well.

Tail wags, the OP Pack

Gus said...

We can tell by the look on your face that the pupcakes were delicious in the extreme.

pee ess

welcome back

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Wooo, relentlessly huge packets! They must have been like, what, IPv9? IPv12?

Petey said...

Welcome back, Mango!

What the heck is wrong with Pee Wee? I'm so excited that I get to go on a 2+ hour car ride tomorrow. In fact, when we go for a walk and I see a car door open by the curb, I usually try to jump in (no pupcakes required!).

That photo of your relentlessy huge head (obviously to hold all those brains) next to Mom's little hand was awesome. I imagine you must be the same size at the T Rex at the Natural History Museum.

Tell your Pops that the barn looks awesome! When will you get to move into your new digs? Is there a room for the maid?

Your pal,


Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
It makes me so happy you are back!
The barn goes pretty well, right?
Pupcakes! They look delicious!
I love car rides too! What is wrong with Dexter??
Kisses and hugs

MJ's doghouse said...

oh mango...please dont ever be gone that long again....i know i can look at old blogs...but it just isnt the same....i went to the dogtor yesterday and he told me I have ARFritis...I was sad...but then mom gave me some magic juice and lots of treats...

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

Um...Mango...what exactly is that on the dishwasher door? We're figurin' it's either Mastiff snottiness or Mastiff slobberness...neither of which seem particularly in the name of heaven do you do that...DID YA SNEEZE????

And Mumsie thought the bodily functions of us terriers were gross...Hey, I can't help it I chewed a chunk off of my new frisbee and barfed it up this mornin' in my crate...

Oh Mango...we went to the park today...

AND LACIE ATTACKED A FEMALE AIREDALE. WHO ATTACKED HER RIGHT BACK. Lotsa toofers there in the black and tan club...the Lacie beast was out weighed by at least 60 lbs...she coulda cared less....

Mumsie was mortified...actually had the gall to ask if the Dale girl was ok...I don't think she meant it but LACIE STARTED IT...

For as best as I can tell is she was walking on Lacie's Earth.

You should try livin' with her.... you drool on ur feet?


tula said...

Everyone is googly eyed ovah there. What's in those things?!!

kiss kisses,

Amber and Nala said...

You are so funny Mango! I can't believe your Momma is making you wait to open your pressies!!! The nerve! Also that she put the cupcakes far back on the counter after learning of Waldo's incident...darn it! I feel for ya man!


Aki and Poopie said...

i see 20 pupcakes there Mango. how many did YOU get?

I was waiting for the part where your mum suddenly locked Dexter inside the mastiff mobile. BOL! but that would probably spook the poor boy and never set close to it ever again.

Please tell your mum that the Pressies would feel sad if they won't get opened immediately after they have reached your house. I mean, really.

drooly kisses,


Martha Basset said...

Welcome back Mango
We missed you - we could almost smell your pupcakes there.......
Great work with the slobber - can you manage to get it on the ceiling?
That barn is just flying up now! Does Dexter get sick in the dogmobile? Martha does so sometimes she doesnt want to get in although she knows we then get to go good places.

Moco said...

Good to have you back, big guy. Those pupcakes are pretty tasty looking.
Sometimes it is really hard to understand our brothers.

Stanley said...


You have the satisfied look of a pup who has been pumped full of peanutbuttery goodness! Hope PeeWee works through his Mastiffmobile phobia soon!

As for you thinking my sissy has a wee little crush on you... What gave you that idea, man? I'd like to know. Then I can do a little investigating.

I think I should tell you, though, that her heart belongs to Taffy the Welshie in England. She also has fond affection for Wally our Corgador friend & Sherman (Lola & Penny's brother).

Goober love,

Pee S
The barn is looking good. So, is Pee Wee going to have to move in there when it's done?

Maggie and Mitch said...

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, you're back, Mango!
The barn is looking good and so are those pupcakes! yummmmmmmmmmmm

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch said...

Aaahhhh, Mango - that is a GOOD goober!! Don't know if I could do as good myself! :-) I leave quite a few good ones around, especially on the walls but my human goes around wiping them off so I can't admire them...humph! Last time I left a great big one across their TV screen just in revenge!

Mmm - your cupcake things look delicious. I would have drooled a puddle just watching them being baked!

Mack said...

You mean PeeWee doesn't like car rides? I've never heard of that before!

Heather and Pumpkin said...

So glad you are back Mango!

I love to ride in anything. I ride the eL train and the bus and taxis and once I even went on a boat. Pee Wee needs to loosen up!


Lois Lane/Laney said...

You're so lucky you can reach the counter top!

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

Hi Mango! just wanted to let you know--there is no such thing as "out of reach"

Allison (Dog Mom) said...

Nibbles Treats said...

Dude, any pupcake is reachable! Glad you're back Dexter too!

SassyDog said...

Glad you are back. The barn is coming right along! You are one big awesome dog, love the previous photo of you. PeeWee is cute, too! Those pupcakes looked very tasty! Happy Weekend!!

Brind'Amour said...

Nice ya have ya back Mango Man! Those cupcakes sure look good!!! I've been known to fling a few goobers myself, perhaps, not as grand as the Mango's!


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

Mango..where the heck is Hector lately??? He's ok, isn't he? Not traumatized by the fire or anything is he? Maybe he needs to give a tour of the new barn. Or maybe ur momma should take him to Sephora like Asta went to??

Do you ever pin you jowls back with clips in the summer when it's hot? Or ribbons? You could make pigtails outta them...hahahahahahaaaa!

Oh, I crack myself up at times...

Love and kisses...Laciegirlie

misskyliem said...

Oh Mango that Barn is coming along. Do you humans plan to keep a horse in the barn? BOL I can't believe you got pupcakes! I doubt I can get Mom to make me any since my tummy doesn't feel good. I am sorry that Dex doesn't like the car. Have you tried Rescue Remedy before you put him in the car? That helps me during thunderstorms.
Happy Mango Meditation while standing!


Clover said...

Hi Mango!
I love your googly-eyed look!!
Have a great weekend!
Love Clover xo
P.S. My blog is gone now, but I will be back soon, and I will let you know where to find me.

wally said...

PB Muffins!!!??? DO you live in HEAVEN?

And I think that you should probably have a month-long burpday party so that no one gets confused.

dewdana said...

Welcome back! Glad your packets are not dropping anymore. Maybe Pee-wee should have taught them his levitation trick!

Sophie Brador said...

Mango, I completely understand Dexter's fear of the Mastiff Mobile. I am afraid of the Brador Buggie too. But I would definitely get in for some pupcakes. I would also definitely get in for you too.


babyphat523 said...

Mango! Miss Chums is most impressed by that goober! You are her hero!
xo :)

Joey said...

Hi Mango! Glad you're back! The barn is looks great and those pupcakes look scrumptious!

See ya!

Joe Stains said...

Welcome back dude!! I am not sure why Dexter doesn't understand that car rides usually mean great things. At least he doesn't get car sick and blow chunks all over, so it could be worse. Those pupcakes look freaking delicious, I need to get Mom baking.

Suzuki said...

Welsome back Mango! The barn looks pawsome :)
Big licks to you

daisydog said...

Wow pupcakes! mmmmmmmm

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Oh the barn is coming along very nicely. We understand about your master and the ladder. Our Momma is a real wimp when it comes to over exertimg herself...we think age is just an excuse for a nap time. The muffins look so yummy. Thinking that you could really reach them if you tried! Tell Dexter not to feel bad about his phobia. We all have some hangups. (Right BRD??) Glad you're back.
Smooches,BabyRD & Hootie

ps-Hooties 1st Bday is May 6th.Our computer won't let us enter it in DWB though. Phooey.
