Mango Birthday - Preparations and Minnie Moo Challenge


Hooray! I am four years old today!

I have to thank all my DWB friends for making this the best birthday ever because it is the first time Momma actually remembered to do anything. Usually she just says, "oh, it's just another day, Mango doesn't know it's his birthday."

That's not very nice.

I do believe that there are actual pictures of myself as a large and handsome puppy someplace, but we had a bit of difficulty when we moved our photos to the mac and they are currently among the missing. Rest assured that I DID NOT HATCH! Any doggie still inclined to believe that total fabrication about my origins is encourage to read this and then tell me that little Lacie gal isn't missing some of her stuffing. OK, enough about that.

Because many exciting things happened today, I am going to show you the photos in groups over the next several days.

My pal, Norwood, sent me this nice cake. Thanks, buddy!

So I wanted to create a festive mood for my birthday. I instructed Pee-Wee to put on his party outfit.

And I put on my party hat as well.

That midget is such a jerk. I think he was mad because it was Mango day (or perhaps still sporting a bit too much labratude).

Show some respect for your elders, squirt, put the hat on properly.


Our friend Minnie suggested a fun game involving putting your face in a picture (and she is even running a contest. Click here to see how to play). I thought it would be a good thing to do on my birthday. What do you think?

Create your own FACEinHOLE

OK, how about this?

Create your own FACEinHOLE

Or maybe this?

Now we're having fun!

Create your own FACEinHOLE

Meanwhile, I had suggestively placed the Pupcakes book on the counter opened up strategically to the photo of a doggie enjoying his own liver flavored cake on his birthday.

I think she got the hint because I detected livers on the counter when she returned from shopping.

To be continued...

Mango man! Oh yeah!

Why is PEEWEE the only khanine on YOUR blog header?

PeeEssWoo: That Lacie is just not all there!

Minnie-Moo (Rescue Lab) said...

Dear Mango,

Happy Birthday! We hope you are having a splendid day! :-))) we love your party hats, although Dexter seems to be having a little trouble with his - did you mum buy extra large?

Liver sounds promising - as long as it's not Dexter's of course!

Thank you so much for taking part in my challenge on your birthday. Poor Muzzle made a very strange laughing/gasping noise when she saw your photos - she seems to be ok though.

Lots of kisses to the birthday boy,

Ruby Bleu said...

happy barkday is my Nanny's barkday too so you are in pawsome company! and your picture of jabba is quite appropriate since it is also star wars day (you know, May the 4th be with you and all that!)

Can't wait to see how the day turns out for you!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Happy Birthday Mango! We didn't think for a minute that you were hatched from an egg. We figured that for a silly puppy lie. Hope u had lots of fun eating yummy cake!

Happy Barkday Mango Man!!
We are amazed that both you and Dexter kept your party hats on long enough for your mom to take photos! Mom tried to make us wear the party hats on Hershey's birthday and they lasted all of 2 seconds.. LOL!
Hope you have a wonderful one, big guy and may you have many more barkdays to come!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Happy, happy Barkday Mango!! We are a few minutes late, but the wishes are still good and fresh!
Loved the funny pictures. That green slinky one was kinda scarey. You look your best in the birthday hat. Not a year over 3!!
love, BabyRD & Hootie

ocmist said...

Happy BarkDay to Youuuuuu!!! Love your pics and looks like you had a great day. Don't know who perpetrated that Mango egg hatching, but it was hysterical, though we know you had a wonderful Mama, I'm sure.

My Mom's getting old and forgetful... She knows I was born in April sometime, but doesn't remember the day since it was so long ago, so now I get to celebrate when I had my kids in July.

Wonder if I can talk Mom into some kind of liver cake? Sounds yoummy! Your friend, OC
