Lawn Tractor Herding

My good friend Honey won first place in her dance competition! WOW! Her mom choreographed a routine for me and I am working hard to be able to dance just like Honey (although I will only dance in my yard because I would get total stage fright if I went to a big competition like she did). Here is a movie of her showing off her stuff. She is so big and blond and clever.


The Rocky Creek Scotties have announced the winners of their Stick out your tongue contest. They had a ton of entrees. Our pictures are there someplace, so we earned this certificate of participation. Go visit their bloggy to see all 127 competition photos.


AND NOW THE BIG EXCITEMENT OF THE DAY


Hey Pee-Wee! Do you see what I see?







Looks like that neighbor lady is riding around on her lawn tractor again.







Come on! Let's go give her a scare!






AR AR AR! I AM A REALLY BIG DOG!





Hah! Scared her for sure!

I'm exhausted! Did you see me running?

The things I have to do to keep the estate safe.



Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Check out this little mini-mastiff I found on YouTube. He is almost as talented as my large and full of tricks self.

Hey, you don't think you are going to get away with telling us you will dance in your yard and NOT show us - c'mon, Mango, we need a video - and in high def too.

Nice running, now let's dance.

Play bows, the OP Pack

Good job Mango and Dexter, that person on the tractor looked pretty, well kind of scared, I think. Good job on running though and keeping things safe.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Hi, Mango...

Looks like you have had quite a fun day...

Great job scaring the lady on her tractor...I know she will think twice before she rides her tractor again...

That Mini-Mastiff, Jack is pretty smart...

Abby xxxooo

Hey Mango..

Stella said...

Thanks for the Honey and her Shadow video . . .they are just great, aren't they?

I am impressed with the way you handle security on your estate. Does PeeWee help you at all?

Kisses,
Stella

the professionals said...

you rock at border patrol, so fierce... *sigh*

misskyliem said...

WooOF! I bet she will never come back!! I Loove that pic of Dex in the cement pond! So handsome! You better not do anything too fancy for your dancing or else my Mommy will REALLY give me a hard time about learning new tricks! Honey's video already got her started!

Licks,
Kylie

Honey the Great Dane said...

OOoh, Mango - thanks so much for mentioning me! Am honoured! :-)
And I LOVE that movie of the "mini-mastiff!" - how cool! My human has been trying to teach me to growl on command for months now but I'm not really getting it yet. I also think he looked really cute when he put his head up and down...but I'm not sure I liked his humans voice - she sounded quite bossy and scary and serious - not happy and encouraging, especially since he was doing SO many tricks for 1 lousy piece of chicken!!

Hee! Hee! Like the video of you barking and guarding the estate - I wouldn't mess with you, Mango Man!! :-)

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

Scout 'n Freyja said...

We're not sure but we think that the lady was smiling and waving at you. Does she do that when she's scared☺

Hoover said...

Hey Mango,

I wanna see you dance!

Thanks for the video.

I like to run right in front of the tractors (and Cars and RTVs) it makes the humans crazy.

Running? You? That seems so out of character.... Although the dancing seems, well, I'll wait and see!

Good work protecting the property!

dewdana said...

You totally scared her... why else would she have drove away like that ;-) Such a brave and ferocious beast!
Can't wait to see the Mango Tango... that is what you will call it, no? seems only logical!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

You have to watch those lawn tractors -- let them into your yard and they'll just mow and mow and mow until the whole thing looks like a putting green!

wally said...

Did you see how fast she rode away on that machine? Scared for sure.

You trickster mastiffs are awesome! You guys should have a show! Cirque du Mango!

G'day Mango mate
Nice border control there.
D took Willow for a walk last week and they went past a property being guarded by a big mastif just like you. He barked at Willow and she got a bit scared. She says you're much nicer.

Mack said...

You are doing a great job defending your property. I bet that lady really wanted to plow down that fence and take over the Mango Estate!

Frodo dog said...

I don't like tractors as well, they need to be bark at!

Owner of Storm and Jackal said...

ocmist said...

Goodness, we've never seen you running so fast! And what a VOICE!! I LOVE deep base voices! You sure got BG's attention, everytime Mom played it. She finally took a vid.

We think a Mango Tango would be pretty neat to see! I'd offer to dance with you, but the old hips, you know... OC

1000 Goldens said...

Mango, I laughed out loud watching you shout at the lawn mower lady. Who the heck does she think she is, getting that close to your kingdom? Sheesh!

gyllendogs said...

Hey Mango, you have a great booming voice! You could hear it over the noise of that loud tractor.

Moco said...

Don't overdo that yard guarding.

Suzuki said...

Mango man, what the hell is going on? I disappear fur a little while and the labradork has taken ovfur the top of your page!
Big licks to you

Life With Dogs said...

Tractor stalking is a new one for us. Must try! :)

Niamh said...

I am sure you will do a great job with your routine Mango! We would love to see it. Keep chasing those tractors. They are noisy and evil.

Your friend,
Niamh

Stanislaw said...

Careful dude. If you display your beastliness around there too much they might use you as a tractor tow one day. Then you'll have to be FRIENDS with that lawn cutting monster!

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

Mango, well done for sorting out that tractor lady. Bet her stripes went a bit wonky as you approached your Estate boundary at great speed!

Molly, Taffy and Monty.

Amber-Mae said...

We are so proud of Honey too! I can't wait to see your dance routine. We hope it's not too difficult for you.

Anyway, please do come over to my blog & vote for the short film I acted in called FLASHES!!!! Thank you!
