Pee-Wee is a Big Faker

Please be sure to visit Miss Kylie. She is running a 200th post photo game and the deadline to send in your photos is almost here!

It all started on Monday night. Stupid Pee-Wee was running around on three leggies with one of his hiney leggies just dangling in the air.

Naturally, Momma was quite alarmed. I, Mango, was a bit suspicious given the vigor with which he dashed madly about.

Of course, the fact that he would not bitey face me was a bit disappointing, but I didn't think much of it.


He started acting all weird by putting his little black labraself in all sorts of unusual places.

To start with he body blocked my access to the dog cave, apparently intent on having some private discussion with momma.

I was able to get in finally and asked him what was up.

But he wasn't talking and then he relocated (gasp) to one of MY mammoth beds in the dog cave!

And just lay there looking all pathetic. This was a most curious turn of events.

But his little plot was revealed when I overheard him saying to Momma, "Oh dear, my leggie hurts so bad, I cannot possibly go to Obedience school (heh heh). I think I am dying! Oh I can't walk! Oh save me!"

Simple being that she is, Momma immediately scheduled a trip to the V-E-T for the wily little dude and cancelled his obedience class.

Along with the scheduled V-E-T visit came this note.

And to my horror, when I went to look for MY supper, MY bowl was empty!

What's going on here?

It said not to feed Pee-Wee. It said nothing about the Mango!

I am starving!

Please do not leave me here all alone and starving whilst you take that big old faker who would rather go to the V-E-T than obedience out for a ride in MY mastiff mobile!

But away they went.

Upon their return it was just as I had suspected. The midget has a "click" in his knee, but not a real boo boo and no Lyme disease and was diagnosed as just having flung his little self about a bit too much. Oh man!

Yuh, look at him! Does that look like a dog with a hurt hiney! I think not (OK, in fairness to the little guy this photo was taken a full 48 hours after the walking on three leggies thing started, but still).

In modest attempt at retaliation, I have positioned my large, hungry, and neglected self in front of the labradork's sleepy couch.

That should give him something to think about next time he wants to trick momma into skipping obedience school.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Check out this photo of Momma's shadow (I kid you not). What the heck? Does she have a tail now?



That was the best post evah! Wicked funny.. mom keeps lol lol lol.. she doesn't even know what to write. I love it- including the human tail.

pam said...

Glad the labradude is ok. Bobo sometimes does the walkin on three leggies thing. The V.E.T. can never find a problem.

I always thought he was fakin too for extra snuggles. I will tell mommy to look for a click.


Katie, Mollie and Bobo said...

BOL! Glad to know everything is alright now. Bobo is always acting funny just to get sympathy from momma....Little brothers are such a pain.

I noticed he was hanging khlose to the empty Happy Hearts box...

He soooo worked her, didn't he?

I'm soooooooo glad woo would nevfur do that!


Niamh said...

What a big baby that Dexter is!! But I am shocked that you had to forgo a meal because he had a vet visit. I hope you did not get faint from lack of food Mango.

Your friend,

MJ's doghouse said...

mango....oh mango...have they fed you poor big beast...should i send you a care package....

The OP Pack said...

Now wait a minute, you didn't tell us if you got dinner? Surely she must have fed you. And about that tail, that is a bit worrisome. Maybe you need to take her to the human vet to have her backend checked out too.

Play bows, the OP Pack

GoldenSamantha said...

Hope you got "foodables" eventually - can't believe Dex had the nerve to enter your space - that took #%*&$! And I'm not sure what kind of vitamins your Ma's ingesting, but that is some tail, indeed bol!
Hugs xo

Chloe and Libby said...

Mango, I'm glad Dexter is ok. It was still good of your mommy to go and have it checked, never can tell.
What's with your mommys tail? Hehe
Hope you made up for missing your supper.

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Mango, We're worried about your food - has she fed you yet?

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Pamela, said...

Woooos! poor Mango man, no food for you! Horrors! That silly little Dexter, trying to get out of school that way, he has no idea how much fun it can be at school.
Ummm, interesting that your Mom has grown a tail, is it a labra tail or a Mango tail?

Suzuki said...

I can't believe they are starving you Mango. Tank is looking fur a bodyguard, room and board provided, your name has come up several times, you may want to consider?
Big licks to you

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
I hope Dexter feels better soon!
Did you get your food already??
Your mom has a tail?? Interesting...
Kisses and hugs

Joe Stains said...

omdog, Pee Wee gets actor of the year for that one?! You did not get to EAT because of HIM!? That is a MAJOR major offense. Holy cow.

Also, your Mom has a tail now, has DoofleDore been visiting your place with his fondue fork???

Deefor said...

Is that thing in his knee like a clicker? Maybe he got his click in obedience school. I hope you got some food. I feel your pain. Your mom looks like Peter Pan in that shadow.


Life With Dogs said...

I'm really hung up on that last pic Mango - I sure hope your Mom is growing a tail! :)

Scout 'n Freyja said...

As much time as she spends with the two of you and feeding you and taking your two for walks and taking you to obedience school, you'd think she would have a tail and a couple of floppy ear, too!☺

chicamom85 said...

Mango, with all due respect, maybe Dexter was in some pain. I mean he was acting pretty weird. You could cut him just a little slack. I am sorry you had to wait for dinner though, that must have been hard to do. I trust everything is back to normal now...except that tail thing with your Mom(cooool).

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Maggie and Mitch said...

We're wondering the same thing as everyone else - did you ever get fed, Mango?
Go easy for a couple of days, okay, Dexter?!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch


What a wuss Pee Wee is. Glad he's OK though. I hope when you got to eat you got a extra helping. Starving You is definatley not right.

Aunt Judy said to tell you that Bandit loves being carted around. He is a Mama's biy and that way he is always connected to her...heehee.


Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh poor Pee-Wee - glad he's OK and it's nothing serious!

Very funny about you and the empty bowl...I'm wondering too, did your human ever feed you in the end??
(by the way, my human did once forget to feed me and she had no Pee-Wee excuse! She just totally forgot to give me breakfast and then when Paul came home, he asked why my chicken carcass was still 'defrosting' on the counter and THEN she remembered!! Sheesh! Thank God Paul lives with us too otherwse I'd probably just starve to death one day!

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

well, we think it is appropriate tat dexter was standing by the box that said "fragile". go easy on him Mango!

Brind'Amour said...

Mango, I know all about those little fakers. I have a few of my own right here. There's no way such fakiness should interveen with our dinners!!!


PS - You mom's tail is a bit alarming

Stanislaw said...

My cocker cousin had a knee clicky thingy too. It caused her some major ouchies. So don't mock your bro, Magnum Dude-man. I bet Labra-meister is a bit sore!

Perhaps you'll let him ride on your back next time he's limping about?

Ludo van Doggy said...

yeah, that does sound suspisciously like faking. But I sure hope Dexter wouldn't worry your Momma like that!
~lickies, Ludo

Rufus, Indie (and Anita) said...

Poor Dexter! We hope you're OK now!
Momma's tail? That's funny!
You guys are the best!

Woodrow, Sweetie, MJ Campanella said...

Great post as always - we went and checked out Miss Kylies bloggie and will be following her - and submitted a photo

hope all is well with Dex and you got your nummies in a timely manner

dewdana said...

Oh no Oh no Oh no! Given Moose's knee troubles I am very worried for the pee wee! Almost as worried as about your dinner or DOH's budding tail. I do hope it is nothing and maybe the vet knows what is up but of course my mind goes to ligament trouble... Moose's started intermittently too. There are other non-problems too so I really really hope it is one of those just mystery things that never reappears or amounts to anything, or that you are right and he was faking to get out of school.

Mack said...

We have to say kudos to PeeWee for fooling momma! I have to try that trick sometime!

Lucia said...

Ciao enorme Mango!

Santa vacca, I hope you got your foodables, il mio amico!! Double the foodables, in fact!! And -- whew! -- we are very glad that Dexter's sore leggie is ok. It's no fun to have an ouchie.

Tanti baci!

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Its not fair that you should miss out on foodables just because Dexter wants to play hooky!

Deetz said...

Thats a pretty scary shadow of your mum....looks like a dinasour
That is a horrible image of the bowl with no foody's in it and the neglect...tiss tiss.
Dexter is a bit smarter then we out for him Mango Man.....

Biggie-Z said...

Wow, your Momma is gigantic! She's almost as big as my big fatso Momma who came back from vacation all fat and everything. She must have been eating the kibbles too.

PEE ESS: Your Momma and my Momma must be in a Con Spirit Sea because I'm not getting much dinner these days either. Momma says it's because I got the diaries again and made a poo disaster in the house yesterday, but I think she's just being MEAN and GRUMPY because her vacation is over.

Anonymous said...

Hey Mango - you've got yourself lots of troubles, huh? Surely you got extra food after all that!?

I borrowed a pic for my bloggie - hope you don't mind. Check it out when you get a chance. Peace.

Daisy Dog said...

Well I hope taht the little clickies in the knee is not a torn ligament like I have. Cuz let me tell you that is not fun!

Jake of Florida said...

Obviously we all want to know the same thing:

Did you ever get dinner?

Or is your relentlessly houge self going to be a wee bit less relentless???

And are we sure Dexter is going to obedience school? Or is it how-to-fool-my-mom-and-my-big-brother-by-pretending-to-be-lame school?

More unaswered questions!!

Jake and Just Harry

Cookie and Cinnamon's Mum said...

Glad that Dexter was OK. Mango, you won't starve by skipping only one meal!

Dexter, in our agility class there is a dog like you! He often shortcuts a course and heads for the A frame.

wally said...

Oh my! Mango Momma needs to go to the vet to have that checked out and maybe feathered so it is lovely and fluffy like mine.

Now, guess who pulled the SAME B.S. at our house!!?? My own labradork brudder was limping too. Same thing, limpy fakey nonsense from being an all around spastic spaz. And yet I wa the one suffering from an attack of furuncle!

wally t.

ps. My ma ape say she is glad it was nothing more serious than being a teenaged boy which sounds like a pretty serious condition to me.

Tee said...

OHhhh, Dexter's a real drama pooch. Having said that we're glad your mom's found out the reason behind his hurted leg.

We have our own resident drama pooch in our neck of the woods - trixie. She was limping all morning yesterday but was fine the evening came after the visit to the Vet ... running about her usual self.

But she did get alot of attention, cuddles and treats from the Chief for being 'injured'.

Owner of Storm and Jackal said...

Bad Dexter! ***but glad he's okay*****

ocmist said...

What is with the pics of Dexter at the top of YOUR blog all the time lately, Mango? I think you are being treated totally WRONG lately and we can see that Pee-Wee is manuvering strongly to oust you from your Mommy's top spot in her heart! Best keep your eye on that little bro! We think he is a very passive aggressive puppy!

BG sometimes gets up and limps for a while... Mom thinks she sleeps wrong on his leg at times and it goes to sleep on him. We hope Pee-wee's problem isn't a real one, but he IS just faking as you believe! OC
