Several alert readers have asked where was I, Mango, whilst Pee-Wee was splashing around in the cement pond.
Safe in my own yard, thank you very much.
The Mango go swimming? Are you INSANE? First of all, there are STAIRS into the pool and the only stairs that I will go up and down are the ones to my observation deck that the ones to the V-E-T. Secondly, I am not full of air like the labradork. I am very dense and not designed for waters over my large and sink like a rock head.
The blond and beautiful Miss Sophie recently posted this most yummers photo of her labrabutt.
Which brought to mind many manly Mango thoughts. I kind of went a little cracker dog and ACCIDENTALLY asked her out on a date.
But Joey posted such a big sobby cry baby movie and momma got all teary and told me I was "breaking Joey's heart" and had to retract my offer.
Maybe Joe will leave me Sophie in his will.
I am happy to report that not only are my yeastie ears all better, but the V-E-T declared that I am exactly the right size and do not need to go on any silly D-I-E-T (see, I knew there was not too much Mango).
Not much else going on around here. I am kind of bored.
Now that it has stopped raining and the sun is our, one does get thirsty.
Fortunately, Momma is very considerate and when it is hot she puts out a bowl of ice cubes for me to cool my large and sun absorbent self.
This works best if you put your entire snooter into the bowl (ignore Momma's babbling - I know I do).
That was refreshing. Now what?
Perhaps a wee. I want to include this to show all you doggies who waste excess energy pointing your legs to the heavens when you pee that it is really not necessary. All that is required is a token arabesque of the rear toe. Why risk falling over?
This demonstrates how to block off a 4 ft. doorway. I use this for when the pointed headed one is getting too annoying because he will not cross the Mango barrier and can thus be confined to a single room (well, OK, he can go around the other way, but it still makes a statement).
This is my face.
Mango Man! Oh yeah!
