Even More Mango Torture

Alert readers might recall that momma has an odd habit or hoarding most of my toys and only bringing them out during official playtime (fortunately momma is thus far able to distinguish between actual toys and and the house jacks and nails and whatnot that appear to be co-mingled with my belongings).

Subsequently, the Mango looks forward to this daily activity with much anticipation and delight.

What toy will be presented? What fun shall we have? Surely, this is MANGO TIME!


Once again, thanks to a cleverly hidden camera, I was able to capture the abuse that has been occurring at my estate.

What started out as an action packed game of Cuz quickly deteriorated into, well, see for yourself by clicking HERE.

First my head gets stuck in a chair, then a horrible force field appears on my stairs, and now this!

Is there no peace for my large and most severely abused self?

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Mango, I feel for ya.
Sometimes I think the only reason Mama gets out the toys is to humiliate and laugh at me ...

Mango this had our mommy doing belly laughin. We don't know why.

It's obvious that you are being severly abused. We must find Master Chew Sits immediately and come rescue you. Can you fit in a small SUV?

Moco said...

I think you really showed your momma what for. How clever of you to ignore that cuz she kept throwing at you. We didn't see your head in a chair though.

Dory and the Mama said...

It looks like "Mango was not pleased"...

TeeHee...See, even if you don't have to dress up cause you are RH, humans can still find ways to laugh at big doggies!

I say that with much love in my heart Mango...really...:-)


Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

That is just sooooo furry wrong!

I mean, I've read khomments about your mental sharpness and such...

Well, I think we've diskhovered one of the khontributing fakhtors...

Maybe woo need a hard hat fur your playtime...

OR khome to Pawsylvania: I won't let my mom throw toys at your important parts!

PeeEssWoo: PLUS, I have FT fur woo!

Agatha and Archie said...

LISTEN CLOSELY TO US OUR MAIN MAN....get on route 9..head towards Boston...once you get here call Agatha on her cell and we will pick you up,,you must get out of there..WE must get out of there..Love A+A

Aniemother said...

Aww.. I'm so sorry for you, buddy!


ScrapsofMe said...

It's obviously too hot to chase's more like lay around the cement pond under a brellie with some cool beverages time. Maybe with someone to sritch around yer itchy spots. And whats with the head bopping? You are too patient by far. Maybe you should take a wee visit to Agatha n Archie for some R&R, leave the Pee-Wee behind...he's too hyper for this heat. Makes me want to lie down in the shade watching him run about.

Cookie and Cinnamon's Mum said...

Mango, you are very patient!

Nibbles Treats said...

What a ruff life you have.

Lots of treats,
Tinkerbell, Oscar and Tucker

GoldenSamantha said...

I could never take cuzball bops on the head and other parts lightly.
Give me a buzz and I'll show you how to throw these things back at em.
xo Sammie

Brownie said...

Mango, how come you allowed yourself to be bopped on the head with a cuz?! That is so NOT right! I say, destroy the Cuz now! One chomp from your powerful jaws and it's bye bye bopping! BOL!

Sam said...

Aw Mango! Can't believe you'd stand for such in-your-face (heehee) abuse! Marge could show you how it's done.. launch that thing right back at'em, mastiff spit 'n all!

Jake of Florida said...

Oh the indignity!! Oh the hoomiliation!!

Dear Mango Man, if you don't want to head north -- then get on I-95 and come south.

Biggie-Z said...

Wow, I think your Momma is about to turn you into the next soccer star! My Momma does that too, but mostly with softer toys, not a cuz.

Or it is torture.

The Thundering Herd said...

Wow. Your reflexes. So . . . so . . . the words escape us.

Stella said...

Mango, stop and think! You are way bigger than the DOH and you could take her down and sit on her. Lay on her, drool in her face,you don't have to take that kind of abuse! The next time she pops you with a cuz, JUST DO IT!

Attaboy, Mango, Attitude is Everything!


Heather and Pumpkin said...

Oh dear Mango, that's even more annoying than the pawparazzi!


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

First, the fact that you only get toys at special times? I'd call the ASPCA Right Away (can you dial a phone - if not, have Dexter do it... his toes are probably smaller). But to have the DOH perpetually toss them on your head? Wow. I think the Geneva Convention people should be called. (Although, um, do you 'catch' any balls that aren't thrown right between your paws? Just curious...)

*kissey face*

River said...

That's a lot of head bonking. It could cause Mango brainpan damage!

love & wags,

Lily and Benson said...

Oh Mango...steal the toys and hide them when mom's not lookin
Benny & Lily

Niamh said...

This is cruelty to relentlessly huge animals if I ever saw it Mango! You need to get the MSPCA involved pronto. Maybe your momma's sickies have made her crazy and she couldn't help herself. She can use the insanity defense to get off.

I hope that you got lots of cookies to make up for the cruelty.

Your friend,

dewdana said...

Terrible! Why would DOH feel that the MAngo needed to be pelted with not one but 2 Cuz? AND it sorta looked like you were glued to the ground for part of it! Absolutely unconscionable! Very dangerous too give where your toys are stored. What if DOH gets so delirious with heat that she grabs some tools and starts pelting the Mango with hammers, jacks, etc!
You watch yourself Mango, and try not to lie in that puddle of glue you must have been in!

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos Mango! I kind of like the way you play, like it does not really matter whether or not you actually get the ball, it needs to be personally delivered to your exceptional mouth and paws, not to go fetch like some Lab!

Ms. ~K said...

Poor Mango.
If you like grits you can come to Georgia and live w/ us!
Wrooo wrooo

Randi said...


I wonder if your Relentlessly HUGE HEAD is that way cuz its just swollen...from taking one too many boings from the Cuz?

& My mom/secretary as a request...if your mama can take a pic of you EXACTLY in the same position as the last photo with the white walls, ONLY with a dollar bill on the floor in front of you...for size reference...

She says, "Please..."

Love & Licks,

Chloe and Libby said...

Mango, your still strong and handsome in my eyes!

The OP Pack said...

Looks like someone was practicing for an upcoming carnival fair to come to town with some sort of ball toss game.

Scary watching you with that cuz in your mouth - it totally disappears:)

Woos, the OP Pack

BRUTUS said...

Mango, Mango, Mango ......
The idea is to go after the ball, not let your momma torture you with it. Us big-headed dogs might not be into the whole chase game, but ya' gotta give it the ol' college try! We know you can do it (plus it's good for toning our butts....)

Owner of Storm and Jackal said...

Now that is downright abusive!! Why do you put up with so much from your deranged and cruel humans?

Lorenza said...

That was the "Attack the Mango game"??
I am so sorry you had to endure that!
Kisses and hugs

Deefor said...

That didn't look like fun at all. I think sleeping would be more fun. Maybe I can send you some toys you could hide somewhere.


Cocorue said...

i could teach you to hide things that will NEVER be seen again by YOUself too.....

wow 230lbs....i just had to meet you as we have not met before and we have so many mutual friends

eh, i'm 3pounds and but i'm much bigger than that if you get me?????

most of my friends are bigger than i......much much bigger and we get along my big brown buddy Chester


MAX said...

Hey there, Mango
BOL...that was really funny! The sound effects of that squeaky toy (in the teeniest beginning of the clip) was side-splitting. At first we thought it was Pee-Wee.:) Followed by your scoff! Ha-Ha!. By the way, on second thoughts and after seeing you in mobile profile, we must apologise for calling you FAT!...Mango the Man!

Holly and Khady said...

You play a lot like me. Interested at first, then bored with whatever the humans seem to want us to do. I can see we are both similar breeds in that area.


Martha Basset said...

Mango, do you want us to call the authorities?
We can see how they kept throwing that orange squeaky thing right at you!
Did they expect you to move or something. When will these humans learn that we are not there for their entertainment!
There is just no respect these days - just try and keep that dignified expression and rise above it!!!!

Oh dear.. Poor Mango.. :(

Maggie and Mitch said...

How awful to have Cuz thrown at you in this way, Mango! We sure hope the guilty party apologized!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Cocorue said...

hey Mango, TQ for visiting..

and don't be scared......i know you're scared you may hurt my 3lb bod....but hey, i'm a very good at 'hooman avoidance' so you'll be no problem for me

have a good weekend

wally said...

Oh Mango. I am calling the SPCA though I think they blocked my number after I called to complain about being fed kibble for breakfast.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh dear...Mango, my human is laughing so hard, she's fallen off her chair!

I personally think everyone else has got it wrong - you were just practising a fancy new head-butting technique weren't you? The kind where you don't move but the ball is magically attracted by the large force field of your head...maybe you can suggest to your human that she should throw cookies at your head instead?

Honey the Great Dane

Woodrow, Sweetie, MJ Campanella said...

Mango man everyone has got it wrong - we are the bosses and as such will not be forced to play the humans silly games. So we ignore thme in hopes that they will get the idea (they tend to be kinda slow) that we are not interested!!!

Sorry about the torture - we somehow missed the chair issue - but the force field was undenyable and this cuz torture was horrible.


ps from mommy - I can actually throw toys to wood and get them to land on his flat head and stay there!!!

Woodrow, Sweetie, MJ Campanella said...

Sorry strike that last comment - we did catch the chair issue - we must have just blocked it our -

poor mango

Woodrow - Sweetie - MJ

Brind'Amour said...

Oh the abuse! Mango, dude, you need a vacation from that place of torture! Call me.


Ruby Bleu said...

Why did she keep hitting you? That's just plain mean. I think you need to throw a cuz at her and see if she likes it. hmmm...wait, you might need some thumbs for that.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

To Mango Darling's Momma...

Just wondering if the new idea of TRYIN' TO KNOCK SOME SENSE INTO MANGO'S HEAD worked????

You must have the stongest arm muscles from the hours of effort spent tryin' to improve the RH's IQ....

Is he going for testing soonest? I'm thinking you might have been able to get it up a couple tenths of a point...but even a little could be a hooge help, huh?

If you need a break from tossin' stuff at him, I'd be glad to come up and help...I'm thinkin' pots and pans might make a resounding clatter in his noggin and clear away some cobwebs...

Love and kisses...

Your niece,


Tom, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan said...

So they were using you for TARGET PRACTICE, Mango? That is almost unbelievable!

But we have to confess that Sei-Chan found the video very exciting and kept trying to grab the ball!

chicamom85 said...

Mango, I am a lover of anything that squeaks, good job on the squeaking! I still believe there is an alien force at work here. Be on your guard. I am concerned with your recent obsession with butts in other comments. This all leads me to believe that you have been captured and returned in another form. Are you "the Mango"?

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

Mango we thought your headers were rather good but we can understand you have not had a good time recently.

Ummmm dare we suggest that perhaps Lacie could come and offer you support and protection from Force fields and Mastiff attacking chairs or perhaps a spot of yoga to relax you.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Stop it Mom, Mango doesn't want to chase that ball and he certainly doesn't want it bouncing off his head.. We feel for you Mango...

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Joe Stains said...

I am so impressed that your cuz still squeaks, ours are silent within minutes of getting in the house. anyway, that cuz play time looks pretty great to me, except maybe you need just a little more energy toward the end...just a teensy bit??
