Wheelie Wednesday - Hector Construction

Hector Wheelie here after being away far too long. I have been a bit distracted due to my impending date with the most beautiful Autumn.

She has asked me to escort her to the big Wheelie Wedding and I am beside myself over what to wear and how to impress her.

I do want to comment on Mango's recent fascination with strange sounds on the Internet. He actually is not one to poke fun given the sounds I captured in this short movie.


To stay busy, I have been helping out with the barn construction. Every morning I inspect the wood pile to make sure we have the right materials for the day's work.

Mango usually wants to help.

I got out his hammer for him, but as you can see, he is really not much help at all... frittering away the morning playing about with Dexter (click here).

I am a bit more serious.

I inspected the rafters.

And made sure the windows were properly framed.

Then it was up to the second floor. I am still working on my ladder skills (click here).

Rick volunteered to transport me next time I had to go up to the second floor. I think it's coming down that I need help with.

Break time! Where are those Dunkin' Donuts?

Hector Wheelie! Over and out!

Hello Hector,
Good job on the contruction duty.
Blogger be being really weird for me lately, I did not even know Mango had posted yesterday. Casnot hear sound at the mo as Mum has not go the speakers plugged in. *sigh*

I think they need a Mango sized one of them dog puzzles...
Mum only know a little Spannish, but she agree with that other pup. They is saying Mastiff's is hard to train as guard dogs. They take twice as much work as other breeds to get a basic level of obedience. She gives the link of your video to show the level she thinks she and others on the forum? are at then says the next one is very hard them the one after that is near impossible.

Something like that anyways. heh.

My mommy is an office manager at a construction company and she is VERY disappointed that you were not provided with a hard hat! must be safe when on a job site.

Please be safe for us.

Heavens, Hector! Be careful! What I love most about you is the daredevil in you but I want you in one piece with no broken bones! Go easy on your bod, K?!


Heather and Pumpkin said...

OMD Mango you sound exactly like Chewbacca? Are you secretly part Wookie?


dewdana said...

Oh dog hector, I hope your survived your brush with relentlessly huge at the end there! Looks like you could have used some body armor instead of a hard hat. At the very least you must be soaked with Huge's suds!

Hector - Gotta hand it to you all - those vids are very funny - or the text intros are funny (I think it's largely the latter!). Mango's noises (w/computer sounds) and hammer time was especially funny to watch when Dexter outruns Mango Man clearly, but then Mango takes a shortcut and broadsides poor peewee! (Pawsome work, Mango...) Finally, poor you, Hector. I can't believe you didn't end up in the hospital. Good job on the inspection. (Obviously, loved this post...)
Hugs and Licks,
xo Sammie

Abby xxxooo

Tibby said...

Hi Hector!
It looks like you are doing a great job supervising the barn building! Do be careful on the ladder though, you definitely don't want to attend the wedding in a full body cast!

oh, Mangi I got in trouble. I pushed Allie's door open just when tweety the bird flew out of his cage and I just had to chase him and pulled all his tail feathers out it was an accident I tell you. Mommy had to take him to the vet but luckily I am gentle and didn't hurt tweety and his tail feathers will grow back the vet. Get this I am no longer allowed to see Tweety, isn't that so unfair? I used to visit his cage and watch him but no I can't. I am so sad Mango.

love Baylee

Gosh Hector we did not realise you were escorting the lovely Autumn to the Big Wheelie Wedding of the year.

We feel it would be extremely prudent of you to keep those wheels of yours well and truly on the ground for the time being.

Well lets face it a wheelie on crutches would not be a pretty sight!

Will you be wearing a bow tie? Autumn will look as pretty as a picture we are sure of that.

Molly and Taffy.

Noah the Airedale said...

Wow you and Autumn ay....that sure is a big deal. She's one hot wheelie mate.
Good work on the barn too.


The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

we don't get the wheelie thing--but we love the piccies!

Brind'Amour said...

Ooohh, now that you said Dunkin Donuts I can't concentrate on anything else!


Martha Basset said...

Hi Hector
Nice to meet you! You wheelies are very busy at the moment. We must warn you not to go near any stairs or at any time allow yourself to be pushed or pulled.
There has been a recent spate of wheelie accidents which we feel are a bit suspicious!
We are very worried that you have entered the building site. We would suggest you just concentrate on eating the donuts !!!!
Martha & Bailey xx

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Well done! You should have your own television show -- it could be called "Hector the Inspector"!

Amber and Nala said...

Hector, looks like you were starting to get the hang of that ladder but I am glad Rick volunteered to help you. :) Great work. Tell Mango those noises sure were funny. :)

A Wheelies work is never done!

The OP Pack said...

Hector, you really need to contact Handy Manny and see if he needs an assistant - your carpentry skills would serve him well.

Woos, the OP Pack

Molly and Taffy said...

Hector. Would you be so good as to pass a message to Mango? Just tell him to pop over to our blog, we have something for him.

Hey where did you find that wheelei buddy! I want one!

Joe Stains said...

Ok that first video, did Mango swallow Chewbacca?? Anyways...looks like fun playing with that hammer but your job looks a lot more exciting. I think they need to install an elevator, that trip down looks mighty scary.
