More Mastiff Moves (and accidental snuggles)

After Pee-Wee and I accidentally rammed Momma's knee yesterday, she said now she knows how Tom Brady must have felt cause that guy who rammed him was about Mastiff sized.

Oh boo-hoo! First off, she should know to get out of the way when I am busy biting the squirt and secondly, all she is doing is walking funny and taking ibuprofen so I don't think it's the same at all. Quit your whining.

I, Mango, have been working very hard on some new moves and I finally got Master to help out with making a movie of my most amazing feats of agilities (Pee-Wee eat your heart out).

Sadly, we still have not purchased an actual video camera, so you will have to forgive the weird underwater effects from our dumb digitals camera.

OK, here goes!


Hee hee. Did you see Momma almost fall over? So much for all that ballet training, huh?

As you can imagine, I was totally exhausted after that vigorous workout. I couldn't even make it back into the dog cave.

I just collapsed in the hallway (please ignore icky walls, apparently the hallway is yet another "under construction" part of my estate).

When I was preparing my movies I found this most disturbing image trapped inside the digitals camera!

It seems that at some point in the recent past, Pee-Wee waited until I was most deeply meditating and snuck up and made actual body contact with his labraself and my hugeness. EW!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!


Amber-Mae said...

I looooved the video! The leg weaves was the funniest! Your poor Momma has to lift her legs so high so that you can fit under. Hahaha! But good job big dood!

Randi said...


BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are sooo graceful! Did you ever train with the NYC Ballet? Maybe the Boston one? Is that how you became so sleek & aerodynamic?

I love your last moves as well...reminds me of the earthquake we had here in SoCal last week...I alerted my mom/secetary of its impending arrival about a minute before it happened...I need to blog about that..

Ok...BRAVO! I'm gonna watch your video again~!

Love & Licks,

ps..PeeWee LOVE LOVE LOVE his big bro! & I bet when you are in REALLY REALLY deep mediatation, he gives you lots of kisses on your adorable snouter!

pss...Mango, would you care to share your insights on PeeWee's amazing Ninja abilities from yesterday? Quite amazing!

Owner of Storm and Jackal said...

Wow Mango you are a champion Agility dog! I'm impressed!

And Dexter you better put on really good cute faces, because if your Mom makes a training blog for you, then you are doomed! It keeps them accountable (whatever that means), which means we have to work harder.


Peanut said...

While I like your moves mom is now talking about trying to train me to do some of that stuff. Not good buddy not good

Rufus, Indie (and Anita) said...

Best agility dog ever, Mango! You can do marching legs too! YEAH!

Abby said...

Hi, Mango...

Loved the video...

Abby xxxooo

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Wow Mango, I am so impressed with your moves. Brawn and brains, I think I am in love.



Yahoo!! What a great video of your huge seff. That looks like fun but I don't know about them pole weaves.

I have missed you guys so much. We should be getting my computer back in a day or two.

I'll be right over as soone as I get it back. We are leaving for home this afternoon. I wish we could stay but Mommy says she has to go to work tomorrrow so she can earn some money to buy my kibble.

PeeEssWoo: I understand the ballet/dance lesson thingie - mine surely doesn't seem to rekhall hers either!

Martha Basset said...

Hi Mango
What a mover! Your weaving was amazing! That leg weave was great - keeps the humans fit having to lift their legs so high!
You dancing was exceptional and whatever that was at the end was magnificent!

Gus said...

Me and Muzzer loved the leg weaves, but we think we had best alert the EMT's ahead of time....seems the old girl is not that steady on her pins any longer so we are back to being prepared. I figure I will be the one injured when she falls on me.

Brind'Amour said...

Loved those moves Mango! You da MAN! Too bad your mama almost fell over. hee hee hee.


Honey the Great Dane said...

Ha! Ha! HA! That is the highlight of my day, Mango!! BRILLIANT!!! Was that you going through the weave poles? Whew! It was so fast, all I could see was a blur! And that leg! And well done with the marching...that was awesome! Am so impressed that you learnt it so well so fast!

But I have to say - what I like best is the way you made your grand entrance - just love your enthusiasm - I couldn't believe it was you! I never thought I'd see The Mango bouncing and jumping like that with so much energy!

Your human is wonderful to do all those things with you.

Love the picture of you exhausted afterwards...I know the feeling! Hee! Hee!

Honey the Great Dane

Moco said...

You are truly a wonder and treasure.

You really do have the moves!! Very impressive getting through the posts without getting stuck!


The OP Pack said...

Great job, Mango, nice moves - and the Mom's moves weren't so bad either - nice kicks and toe points - be sure to give her some tasty treats too.

Woos, the OP Pack

wally said...

Sneak attack snuggle! That's so wrong.

Those are some great moves. So in her break from the field is your mom going to marry a supermodel?

Lorenza said...

Very energetic!
Kisses and hugs

Suzuki said...

You did a pawsome job Mango!
You must always mediatate with one eye open though or they WILL touch you.
Big licks to you

Niamh said...

Your are very good at your spins Mango!! I love to spin too. It is a shame that our respective dance partners are less graceful than we are. Sorry to see that your pee wee brother has been getting his cooties all over you when you sleep. You will need to give him a good smackdown so he doesn't do it again.

Your friend,

Maggie and Mitch said...

We loved your video, Mango! You and your mama move so beautifully together!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Luna and Sole' said...

Wow - you are doing great! Gota be careful on the human! They are so wobbly and fragile sometimes!

Keep up the great work!

Joe Stains said...

That last move looks like it might alert those seismograph people holy cow. I thought the weave poles were going to eat it when you were pushing your massive self through them. GREAT job my friend. Rest up.

Life With Dogs said...

Does this mean your Mom gets to marry a supermodel? :)

Nibbles Treats said...

Will work for food.

shannicat said...

Wow Mango! You are very agile! We, as cats, are extremely nimble ourselves. As for weaving, nah! We just bumrush the prize! Keep up the excellent work!

Amber and Nala said...

Wow are quite the dancer! Great moves....sorry Pee Wee snuck up on you in your sleep. ;)


Kirby said...

Mango, man, you have some great moves! You can really move it!! It's just such a shame that pee wee rubbed his labradude self next to you while you were meditating.

Your pal,


I think your moves earned you a spot on dancing with the stars! Those seamless weaves. The elegant chorus line kicks and shimmy under momma's legs... you would win the disco ball- that's for sure. You even have a costume to wear- the hoodie.


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

Oh my...we couldn't see the video...all we saw was a black bear in the dark....sorta the opposite of the polar bear in the snowstormie.....

So...ya took out Momma's knee??? That sorta happened to Mumsie a while back at the dog school dog park...a whole pack of dogs smashed her knee and bent it backwards...she wasn't a happy girl....

We um had an INCIDENT on our walkie tonight...Mumsie had all three of us as usual...and well...Scruffy and Stan's prong collars um hooked together. They were stuck..head to head...Scruffy freaked out first and bit Stan...and the fight was was one of the loudest dog fights I've ever managed. I shrieked and yapped till half the neighborhood came runnin' out...

Scruffy was bleedin' in a couple of places either from Stan chompin' on him or from his collar pinchin' him...don't know how Mumsie didn't get bitten...finally Stan's collar just fell off...and we got em apart. Gonna be some changes with the walkies around here....

Mumsie is going to bed with an icebag....she feels horrible bout it....

The best part was the two teenaged girls who watched the whole thing...they were laughin' so hard they could hardly stand up....odd sense of humor, huh????

I dunno, darling...

I adore your Hoodie...I may get one made for me sayin' "Impossible Small" or something.........

Love ya lots, Mango dear.


Noah the Airedale said...

Hey mate
We only just noticed you're raising money for dogs too. We got B to help us donate. Hope you raise loads !! Good luck.

Noah Willow Tess Lucy

Noah the Airedale said...

Tess & Lucy were a little boisterous when we first got to our walk. I have to keep an eye on Tess because she has this mad streak in her but only around certain dogs. Noah can also be a bit of a cranky pants around full male dogs but by the time the walk actually started they were all pretty good. Noah did crowl a few times but only because some dogs got a bit too close and he doesn't like anyone in his space.
You'll be right. Just stay alert lol.

Puglette said...

yay! those were impressive agility moves, mango! your speed in the weave poles will help in competition. you look adorable in your video!

Murphy Dogg said...

Mango, I don't understand how you can be so big and so graceful at the same time!
Murphy Dogg
P.S. My little sis Molly totally looks like a mini-Mango! How does it feel to have a miniature 20-pound, doppelganger?

Deetz said...

Woe, you got your mum well trained, Mango. It is exhausting exercising our humans.
PS. I think Dexter likes you
Who could not like the Mango.

Butchy and Snickers said...

Darn, we couldn't see the video either. Bet it's awesome though. Ah, we bruise Mama's knees all of the time. We don't mean too, it just happens, heheheh. Dexter knows when to snuggle up & be content. You should let him do this more often.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

I used to do the sneak snuggle thing with my cat.

misskyliem said...

Awww how cute!!! BOL Becareful with that momma first her back and now her knee... you know they aren't replaceable right??

ocmist said...

Nice moves, Mango Man! We are still amazed that your Mom is walking AT ALL! You better be nice to her and quit griping... Remember, SHE is the one who FEEDS you and if she can't carry the huge bowls you must eat of foodables, you guys might be in for one of these NASTY diets! OC
