Boring Day

Do you get bored when it rains? I know I do.

Momma isn't bored. She just reads her dumb books. Like this one. Actually this one isn't so dumb. It was written by Dennis's dada and it is so good that Momma read it in two days (when she should have been paying attention to me). You can order it for your people on Amazon.


I, on the other hand, can get cabin fever which results in my wanting to go out and then come in and then go out and then come in, and...






What I really want is some ACTION, but momma is harder to convince to come outside when it is raining.


And then of course once I get outside I need to rest before I can come back in.




Whereupon I find myself in the land of the easily amused.







Sigh...



Mango Man! Oh yeah!

You make a very nice shoe tree mango. Are you available for parties?

Martha Basset said...

Hi Mango
Why is everyone putting their shoes on you?
We sometimes think people are taking advantage cos you are bored.
Hope the rain stops soon.
love

So sorry that it's raining in your neck of the woods. We got a lot of that for about three weeks and thought that we'd go crazy! Now it is sunny and HOT so momma says that we can't stay outside for very long cuz it's not good for us. So, what's a dog to do?

Mango and Dexter my good friends. I love and respect you but for the love of God, get out of the rain! My Mom loves rainy days and I hate them as well. We are at times easy targets for these humans to pose us for their camera things but show some dignity Mango, not shoes!! Alas Mom has done these things to me so I do understand. We do love them for all of their faults. My Mom has videos of me but as she is a slow learner she is still trying to figure out how to put them on my blog. She also would like very much to "paw it forward" but again as she is slow to learn she needs instruction, patience and training. I will do my best with her. Our e-mail is chicamom85@comcast.net if that helps at all.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Hey Mango,

When it rains real hard over here I take my tennis balls outside and plop them in puddles and holes that I dig. It's really fun!!! But the real fun is when I start digging frantically while it's raining and mom yells from the kitchen window! I think she's really cheering me on but she says no.

Wiggles,
Brind'Amour

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

I am SO with you. Rainy days are REALLY boring!!! Especially when Mom and Dad just sit around 'doing stuff' all day. Bleah.

Hope it stops raining soon. If not, I've got some great plans for an Ark....

Honey the Great Dane said...

At least your humans don't force you to go for a walk in the rain, Mango! Mine do - even when there it's bucketing down...and they tell me it's "for my own good"...?!?!
AAAaaaarrrrgghghh!!

Hee! Hee! I love that last picture of you with all the shoes...my human also loves doing stupid photos like that of me...Stop! You're giving her ideas!!

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

Abby said...

Hi, Mango...

All that making up your mind must have made you tired...

I don't think it's very nice of them to use you as a shoe rack just cuz you make such a good one...

Abby xxxooo

Sophie Brador said...

Stella said...

Its the same for me, Mango, I hate going out in the rain, no matter WHAT Khyra says.

So sometimes I want Mom to open the door, just so I can see whats going on. How wet it is. I don't wanna go out in that mess!

Kisses,
Stella

Lorenza said...

I agree! Rainy days are boring!
Well, I like them... but my mom does not let me go out when is raining!
I am thinking your mom was bored too!
Kisses and hugs

Joe Stains said...

omdog I certainly hope it stops raining, I can't stand to see you so disgruntled. I also cannot stand to see the humans using you for their amusement!!

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

Hey Mango and Dex

I'm tired of the rain! Does the sun exist? Mango were you calling the whales? Aroo Aroo!

Do you see the baby french mastiff the bubblegum akitas now have? So cute.

PS PeeWee- nice DD tactic for training momma. I like it. Did you see this new craziness? www.Dunkinrun.com. You can use for your training plan.

Biggie-Z said...

Mango, you sound like a big humpback whale!

By the way, rain is fun - you can run around and catch raindrops and splash in puddles! My humans love it when I do that!

Your pictures remind me I need to set up a contest of piling sh**, I mean shoes and toys and anything else. Maybe when my Momma isn't quite so busy. Momma's busy days are the boringest of all.

miss you guys!

Deefor said...

Hey Mango
I don't mind rain as long as I can dry off on the couch. Nice of you to let your humans store their shoes on you. Looks like Dex has been pretty busy lately. Doesn't he ever sleep?

siennaspeaks said...

that shoe thing - is that some twisted form of dooce (http://www.dooce.com/) worship?
you are MUCH more good-looking than dooce's chuck, and shouldn't have to put up with stuff like that!

Stella said...

Sweet Mango Man!

My girl fell in love with you all over again when she heard you singing the blues out in the rain. Then she practically fell over when you tried to shut the door on the Mama.

As for using you as a shoe tree... I think your mama needs some new hobbies ~ maybe bowling or something else that gets her out of the house so you can sleep in peace. (No matter what she said to you at the beginning of the video, I KNOW she doesn't think you're a bad doggy.)

Goobery love & tiny kissies,
Stella Bean

Lucia said...

Ciao Mango and Dex!

Oh, the loathesome rain ...

Are you thinking of opening a shoe-shine concession, Mango? Hmmm ... with your bellissima voice and expressive face, I think you ought to consider a career in the theater!

Tanti baci!
Lucia

Mango - the rain isnt too bad but you gotta tell your mommy to get you a rain coat so you can walk in the rain - mommy says i am like a duck so all the water runs off - but i had a rain coat and i drag my mommy on walkies in the rain all the time

Sweetie loves to rain and will just lay outside and roll in the mud - i dont do that but we all know Sweetie is a little strange

When it rains, our peeps take all kind of crazy pictures of us too but we would never let them lay shoes on us. Of course, in our case, it would probably be shoe.

Mango the shoe tree!

Rain isn't so bad - the only bad part (for mom) is that I like to poo in the living room when it rains so I want get my toostsie's wet!

Thoughts said...

LOL, we love the video and pictures!

We also detest the rain, we refuse to go out to even go potty when its raining. My mom says we are spoiled wussy goldens...

ocmist said...

Of course you wanted to LOOK out, but then, when she opened the door and you saw all the rain... You're smart enough to "stay out of the rain," so you didn't want to go out, but HAD to when you got called a "B-Dog" and then you looked so pitiful sitting out there looking back and forth between Mom and the door. You were just trying to please your Mom...

How humiliating... first they take over YOUR blog for Dexter, and now they use your calm and sweet self to amuse themselves... I think they'd better not make you angry... They wouldn't like you if you got angry!!! (By the way, has the green gone out of your gas... Dott needs to know for her data.) OC

Murphy Dogg said...

Wow. You go out in the rain on purpose? Like, cause you want to? You sure one crazy giant.

Oh dear, the shoes again? :)

babyphat523 said...

Mango, please make it stop raining in the Northeast! Our Chums is like Dex, she likes to sit outside all day in the rain. But she gets sick from licking all the puddles. Yuck!

xoxo :)

Wow!! That looks like the weapon in our recent Dog CSI case!! You should enter it as evidence.
