Mango Birthday - Pressies! and Lockdown

We were in lockdown mode all morning because the chemical man came to spray our yard for fleas and ticks and other stuffs.

Of course this required careful observation.
The Pee-Wee is interfering with my guard duties by trying to play inside bitey face. Doofus! Go find your own window.

OK, I have to apologize for momma because she is super tired from putting together my relentlessly huge birthday and being all busy at the work place and stuff and is having trouble helping me to visit your bloggies. But I am so happy to receive all the birthday wishes from each and every one of you. I got a nice e-card from Mona.

And that wild pack of labradogs sent me this (Pee-Wee liked this card the best, I wonder why).

I got this nice cake from Scruffy, Lacie, and Stanny. Given the source, I might have Pee-Wee do a taste test to make sure that Lacie didn't put something icky in it.Asta sent me this wonderful card! I love it!

Before I tell you about my wonderful pressies, you should know that here at the Mango estate we are in a constant state of stuffie deprivedness. Yes, dear readers, it is true that we are only allowed to have one or two stuffies in the house and a few toys in the yard at a time.

So, imagine how delighted I was when Momma produced four brand new stuffies just for the Mango on his birthday!

I got a cat, a birdie, a bear, and a yellow squeaky thing. Oh happy day!

I decided to play with the bear first. It made a really cool sound, but that sound was soon replaced by a disappointing crunch. Momma said I had squished his insides in my large and vice-like jaws and that the bear might have to go into early retirement.

Sorry, bear.

I always like stuffies that fit conveniently inside my mouth because I can take them outside and nobody sees....

Well, usually nobody sees, but in this case, I was told that the birdie is only to be enjoyed indoors.

OK, let's try the yellow squeaker. Nom, nom, nom.

Hey, wait a minute, what happened here? One, two, uh, two, um...
I know I had more stuffies than this a minute ago.

Drat, there goes the little brat with my yellow squeaky!

He even managed to escape out the back door with MY TOY!

Fear not! I was able to recover it. I think this one is for outside playtime anyway.

So I played with the bear, the yellow squeaky, the birdie... now let's check out this cat thing.

Hold on! What is going on here?

Is he (gasp) humping my brand new cat stuffie? Oh the horror, oh the humanity!

Back off, squirt! I can see I am going to have to keep close watch on MY new toys.

That's right, you just stick to the poor one-armed monkey, you nasty little black thing.

Gosh, that didn't take long. One stuffie in early retirement and one outside. I better watch my back lest my birdie and cat suffer similar fates.

To be continued...

Mango Man! Oh yeah!


Gus said...

Oh Mango...Teka destroys my stuffies too. It is just not fair. I am in solidarity with your Mango greatness.

Hi Mango!

Jake of Florida said...

Why is it that the favorite toy of our pesky siblings is the very toy we have in paw -- even if other toys are just an inch away???

Happy birthday again, your hoogeness.

Happy Belated Birthday, Mango!! What cool presents and cards!

Sorry I didn't get here earlier - my human has been really busy with Work thing too and so hasn't had much time to take me to visit blogs. I'm so envious of you and all your stuffies! My human has similar rules and I only usually get 1 or 2 stuffies out at a time, although she does rotate them sometimes to keep things interesting (although usually I have destuffed them and they need to be replaced!)

I do think you're a bit mean to poor Pee-Wee, though! :-)

You are much nicer to the stuffies than we are. We make sure the squeakers are good and broke real quick. Again, happy birthday!

Niamh said...

That's great that you got all those stuffies for your birthday. I hope you can keep your pee wee brother away from them. Ambrose has destroyed a few of mine and I will die of embarrassment if he starts humping them the way Dexter does. Glad you enjoyed your new toys.

Your friend,

I can see you are like me, Mango, you take good care of your toys. I have all my toys and don't ever wreck them, and you never run out!
Did I wish you a Happy Barkday? I do!


Kess And Her Mama said...

Happy Barkday Mango! Lots of birthdays this couple of weeks. 4 squeaky toys on your birthday...that is way too awesome.

Pamela, Kira and Scampi said...

Oh Mango, loads of cute stuffies to de-stuff, or don't you do that. It is my favorite part! Scampi steals them all takes the outside and tries to bury them He is just a strange as your Pee wee!

Happy birthday, Mango - we think you were very lucky to get all those new toys. Guard them carefully. But do be gentle on the bear:-)

Tail wags, the OP Pack

Ms. ~K said...

Happy Birthday you big handsome boy!!!
We only get tennis balls for toys since Sassy swallowed the eye off a stuffie and Rama had to check her pooh for 2 days, waiting for it to pass...

Enjoy your stuffies and special day,
Zack, Sassy and Buddy

Lucia said...

Ciao Mango!

Wayyyyyy cool pressies, il mio amico! I, too, have the yellow squeaky stick, although I have ripped half of its lovely jacket away ... heeeee! I can't help it -- I just love to hear it squeal!

Tanti baci!

Puglette said...

Anonymous said...

Hi Mango! Wow, what great birthday stuffies and stuff in general! Sounds like you had a good birthday, despite Dexter...uh, interfering with your toys.

See ya!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
You got very nice stuffies and toys!
Hmmm... Maybe Dexter was giving your cat stuffy a nice welcome to the family!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

River said...

You look good there on Stuffie Watch. I hope the labradude doesn't sneak up on you.

love & wags,

the TN Bull Terrors said...

What great pressies!! They look like fun. Dexter is just bein plain ol' rotten, bet he thinks if he humps it you won't want it anymore & he can have it.

ocmist said...

Looks like you got some really nice stuffies. Your "bother" is just about as bad as my "bother" though... BG keeps ripping off with and then ripping UP MY STUFFIES, too! Could you come over here and teach him some manners? Dott (Country Corgis)

ocmist said...

Oh, yeah... I forgot to say thanks for pointing us to Minnie-Moo's challenge... I thought Mom was going to bust a gut while she helped us get our post up.

She LOVED your Mango the Hut... said it could have been said as Jabba the Mutt, but you are in no way a Mutt and anyway, she LOVED it! Dott

Huskee and Hershey said...

LOL!!! We loved the pic of Dexter humping the cat! I think he should pick someone of his own size.. hehehee... notti Dexter!!
Wow.. 4 new toys is a wonderful way to celebrate your barkday Mango.. our mom is stingy.. she never gives us more than ONE miserable new toy at any one time. :(

Maggie and Mitch said...

Mitch runs off with all of my stuff too! Sometimes I wonder if it's even worth it to have a brother! UGH! I hope Dexter is kind enough to return YOUR stuff to you, Mango!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Abby said...

Hi, Mango...

Dexter seemed to like them, too...

Abby xxxooo

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

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

Peewee is just irritated cuz your Barkday celebrations are gonna go on for weeks...Mangopalooza...never could spell that wordie....

Besides, with the winters you have up there I'm thinkin' not too many fleas are jumpin' right bout now....You don't have RELENTLESSLY HOOGE FLEAS, do ya? Sorta like Jurasic Park with fleas??? Oh my. Talk bout horror flicks...

Barks, Kisses and Slurps...


Brind'Amour said...

Whoa, Mango dude, keep an eye on those toys! I know what yer going through. Everything I got for my birthday has disappeared. I do believe my little cousins may have had something to do with that!


Mack said...

Wow -
You got a Mango sized load of toys for your burpday!

Are they still alive and breathing today?

Life With Dogs said...

What a haul! You can sacrifice a stuffie a day at that rate. And you're only a couple of hours away - I don't want Nigel to see this or he'll end up in your yard trying to sneak off with the leftovers :)

Pedro said...


I have wanted to meet you for quite some time now because I've read about you on many of my friends' blogs. You certainly are relentlessly huge! I guess I'm relentlessly small. Your toys are even bigger than me! They say chihuahuas have no concept of self because we really do think we are big dawgs. Inside I feel as big as you! Happy birthday to you! It looks like you had a great day! I'll come and visit with you again soon.


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Man Big Man they just don't make toys like they used too. Perhaps you just need a nice stick? You can chew them up and find another one. There is a lot at our lake..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Eric said...
