I'm Still Here and Grandpa Angus

A few alert readers have observed that the Mango has been somewhat lax in sharing his adventures lately.

Truth is that the DOH has been busy doing who knows what (she says, "stuff") and has not been much help.

There are not even any new photos of me in over a week! Can you imagine???

I did unearth a couple of nice pictures of my Grandpa Angus when he was forced to do some dopey obedience competition.


Apparently at the competitions they band the people just like those birds in PA that Khyra is always talking about. I suppose it's so if any of them wander off they can be identified and returned to their doggies.

Angus was most certainly a dapper chap in his youth. He looks just like Noah! He is six years old in this picture.

He competed in the sub-novice class which means you have to keep mom on leash lest she try to flee the scene. As you can see, Angus kept a lookout for any dunkin donuts or ice creams that might distract her during the sit / stay.

Uh oh, here comes the DOH... most likely with some "activity" in mind. Gotta run...

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Well, I GUESS that will hold me ovfur fur a bit!

Hoomans really seem to be fond of doing 'stuff' -

I'm still not sure what all that inkhludes although it usually involves ignoring US!

Tank woo fur sharing pikhs from the arkhives!

always enjoy your updates Mango! you and D look great in that last pic. looks like there might me some bitey face shortly after that shot was taken

Life With Dogs said...

I wondered where you were. Something tells me you'll just have more to share when you return! :)

Gus said...

Mango! Hey all y'all..good to see you. Love the picture of Angus, who was clearly a "substantial" aire fellow. Muzzer does stuff too. Me and Teka usually just nap on through it, long as it doesn't involve the dreaded noisy monster.

Hi Mango
Funny how it is always human 'stuff' that gets in the way. We cant remember the last blog post we read that said dog 'stuff' was the reason!
Angus was very handsome with a good scottish name!
Not as handsome as your relentlessly huge self of course!

The OP Pack said...

Yeah, Mango, all that "stuff" gets in the way here too. But at least you managed to get us a pic or two of your handsome self. The first one makes us wonder what you have been drinking lately, and the last one makes us wonder the same thing about the DOH - what happened to the rest of your face?

Woos, the OP Pack

We were worried about you - thought maybe you'd let PeeWee lead you off on his hunt for a squirrel. Glad you're back.

Mom's been HOME all week and haven't taken any new pix of me, either, so mine is lousier ;) Now she's got a new memory card for the camera and what does she do - she leaves me all alone to take pix of buildings??? Hope the human comes to her senses soon, though, cause we miss you when we can't see your relentlessly huge face.


Brind'Amour said...

Okay, got my Mango fix. So I'm good for now.


Stella said...

Good to hear from you, Mango. Angus was certainly a handsome guy, much like you.

I am interested in the Grand Opening of the new barn, all outfitted with its new tools and such. Any idea when that will be happening? If its like other grand openings, there will be eatables galore, so you might want to push this.

Why are our humans always doing stuff? So boring!
Grabdpa Angus was a great champion!

Ah yes, what a fantastic post matie. Gotta love Grandpa Angus. He is rather handsome hehe.

We know how you feel about the lack of photos. Pinky is even taking pics of trees rather than us......sigh.


wally said...


Angus is quite ugly but obvious the DOH needs further obedience classes if she has been neglecting your blog so. You need to keep her on a shorter leash.

Mack said...

My mom is always claiming to be doing "stuff" - but I don't believe her.

And she is crazy about donuts too

Anonymous said...

Looks like Gramps was pretty good at that agilities thing.

Abby said...

Hi, Mango...

I was missing some new pictures of your handsome face...

My Mom has been sooo busy doing "stuff" that she forgot to get new camera batteries, so now I have no pictures of my recent Squirrel Hunt...

The just need to get their priorities straight...

Abby xxxooo

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Now that I've passed my test I'm done with obedience!

I'm glad to see your handsome face back online Mango.


Libby said...

Mango, you are such a gorgeous little guy, I had to sign up to start following your blog, so please tell your mommy that she needs to post more pictures of awesome Mango!

Sophie Brador said...

Mango! Clearly, you are confused because your DOH has not been tending to your intellectual stimulation. I hope she is still banded, just in case.


Eric said...

Hmm. You think Mom is working within the squirrel invasion for force field?

Wiry wags n kissies Eric xx

I was beginning to think that your OWAS duties were taking you away from your bloggy. I'm glad to hear that it is just the Dottie Old Hen. My Mom has been a little lax herself - so maybe it's something in the air?

*kissey face*

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Lovely to see you, Mango, even if Dexter came and cut your post short!

Tee said...

Hello there Mango! What great pictures - hehe.

You know, we also think Donny's accustom to being the only dog with him jumping on the rest of us lot whenever he gets the chance.

It WAS nice to see and hear about your Grandpa Angus and I'm glad it was just hoo-man "Stuff" that got in the way. We were afraid that you might have been injured in one of the Squirrel engagements.

I must say, though, cutting off half of your head is NOT COOL big guy! Does some of that "stuff" include getting new glasses? Sometimes my Mom does that and that is her excuse...

You aren't sporting a bandage around the top of your noggin' from an injury are you?!!! Stay safe Big Man-go... OC
