Staying Cool

It has become quite warm here in Master Chew Sits and given that Momma is a big meanie who will not turn on the AC until the interior of my estate crests 80 degrees F, I am forced to seek coolness for my large and easily overheated self by other means.

Unfortunately, the squirt is very quick to hog the best cooling off spots. Here he is enjoying the breeze under the window in MY dog cave.

I am at a loss as to how to best extricate him from the cooling spot.

He is also a total fan hog. That vertical thing is an Oscar lating fan and the midget positions his pointed headed self as close as possible thereby not only absorbing the wind but also dispersing his labrastink throughout my living room.

I am compelled to seek refuge upwind as can be observed by my bottom shown in the top of the picture.

Some alert readers might ask, "Mango, why don't you just make him move?"

I will tell you why.

Because unlike some annoying pain in the butt pee-wee midget hump meisters, I am a gentleman. Not prone to making a fuss over a patch of cool floor. Plus I am reluctant to have any part of my large and sweet smelling self come in actual contact with the little dude other than my teeth.

So I will resign myself to a comfy corner and hope that the AC comes on soon.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Regarding my impending Uncle-ness of what appears to be a yellow labradude, it seems that the alleged puppy has to live with his fur mom for another few weeks so there is still time for me to convince my brother and sissy-in-law to seek out a proper doggie. To show why I am so concerned, I refer you to this R rated and most disturbing movie.

Wish me luck.

Mango - I'll bet you could easily reach the thingy that turns on the a/c. Take matters into your own paws and turn it on. You shouldn't have to live like that.

Checkers said...

oh mango - you should come live with me - our AC stays on 68 - the olde blonde loves her cool airs

Good luck keeping cool. Why does your mom wait until the house is 80 degrees? How does she fold laundry without breaking a sweat? I like it warm (and actually prefer it 80 degrees when not working or sleeping) but we keep our domain 75 degrees. Sheesh. Poor roasted pups.

Owner of Storm and Jackal said...

Oh, by the way it's the humidity that kills me. Is it humid in Master Chew Sits?

Woo should be furry furry afraid...those Dud(e)-De-Lab khreatures look skhary!

Woo khan khome here with me!

I'll get my mom to point some khool air in your direkhtion!

BTW, I see a KHAT on the floor ;-)


ocmist said...

Good grief... Dad likes your blog so well that we have to wait until Saturdays now to read through them so that he can see them too!

Does Jake have a blog? Maybe you could mention to him about how your labradude brother took over yours! Nice to see your pic back at the top again, even if you DO have to share it with Pee-wee.

By the way, I have to be nice to a horribly nasty yellow lab dudette that is my Sissy-in-law's. I have a major DISLIKE of yellow labs because of "Daisy." Now, my Mom is totally enamored of the witchy thing, don't ask my why! She does watch carefully, though when we are together because both of us are constantly warning the other to "GET LOST!" OC

Oh Dear Mango! We keep the moose lodge at 78F and can't handle a single degree warmer than that! But we live in a sauna! I think if you locate the thermostat you could just pant real hard next to it so it will think the whole estate is 80F! Or you and Pee wee could just lie all over momma until she is burning up and turns it on!
THat video is most disturbing! Is that going to be the Mango's fate? Best to have him visit early and often so you can properly instruct the little guy as to who is boss! WHat will his name be?

Stella said...

Why arent you outside, laying in your wading pool? That could be cooling, couldn't it?

I'd give up that gentleman stuff just long enough to get Peewee out of where you want to be, then turn it back on again!


Dennis the Vizsla said...

hello mango its dennis the vizsla dog hay oh my gosh!!! that puppy in the viddyo is just like wun of those alien faysehuggers wot i hav herd abowt!!! it wil clime on yore fayse and then it will implant yoo with puppy eggs!!! run away run away run away!!! ok bye

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

Gosh Mango if I wanted to be in a cool place I would go for it. Be assertive like me!

Stay cool.


chicamom85 said...

Mango, I am sorry that you have to endure that. Have you reported your Mom to the A/C police? I would. I hope you are finding refuge, perhaps a very large popsicle would help or a cool shower? Try watching a movie about winter and snow?
Good luck

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Dory's Backyard said...

Wow Mango....I suggest sitting froggy on a hard wood or tile floor. In fact, try the bathroom floor! It may increase the odds of the A/C turning on!!

That R rated movie was pretty out for those sharp little dog teeth if you play with your nephew...OUCH!

Eric said...

Crickey. What a shocker. That little labradude looked like he had the hots for a Mango lookalike.Better get yourself a Chastity belt.

Wiry wags and kisses Eric xxxx

pam said...

Yikes that movie was a horror! You already have a stinkin labradude to endure must you endure more?

In Michigan it's not gotten hot enough to turn the A/C on so we've not had to blackmail mommy. Perhaps you have something on yer momma so she'll be forced to turn it on.

The Relentlessly Huge one should not have to live in conditions such as this.

Bobo and Meja

ps: Meja is writing to the ASPCA with no air conditioning right now.

Noah the Airedale said...

A tip from down under. Seek refuge in the bathroom mate. The tiles on the floor will keep you cool.


The Thundering Herd said...

Prepare yourself for a shocking revelation. Ready? We don't have air conditioning. Seems that we only see 4 or 5 days a year that reach 80F at the house, so our humans don't have a magic air machine. Can you imagine the deprived state we live in?

P.S. - Sorry, Mango, but we had to laugh at the video. One paw and the puppy would have been pancake.

Abby said...

Hi, Mango...

Next time you go on the Runnnig of the Errands, ask your Mom to pick up another fan...

Until then...I think you are big enough to make Pee-Wee move...

Abby xxxooo

Katie, Mollie and Bobo said...

Oh my we keep our house at a nice 65. If you would like to summer here we would love to have you. We maybe short but we can have a good time.

Keep showing your brother and sister-in-law your baby pictures...they are sure to come to their senses when they see your handsome face and large ears.

-Mollie and Bobo

Biggie-Z said...

DEsperate times call for desperate measures, dude... I went SWIMMING today!

Luckily it gets cool here in Brrr Mont.


I have a great idea, dudes...

YOU SHOULD TOTALLY COME UP HERE! We already have 5 dogs here, I'm sure they won't notice another 2. And your silly labradude would probably love the swim.

Owner of Storm and Jackal said...

I think I've mentioned Sarge on Jackal's blog, but not sure. He is the dog we are pup-sitting for friends while they remodel their house. Jackal has been enjoying the company of a dog his own age and close to the same size. :) They play like crazy.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Yes, the tiles on the bathroom are the best to keep yourself cool!
We don't have A/C and we had 117 degrees today!
That humpy puppy is sooo cute!
Kisses and hugs

Niamh said...


Making you wait until the house is 80 degrees to turn on the AC is cruelty to animals, especially such large, heat generating ones as yourself.

I can see why you don't want to be an uncle to a little lab puppy! They all must be humpmeisters!

Your friend,

Summit the Super Mal said...

Woo there Mango~
Unbelievable...demand your own pawsonal fan. If the peewee can have one woo should have one two. We've got 'em all over the place. I usualli let the huskies have 'em and I commandeer the cold air ventis but summtimes when I'm realli hot, mi snooter's right there.
Your pal,

MAX said...

Hey there Mango
Hope you get cool soon. We know what the heat can get like here in SA...thankfully its winter here now. Our sympathies go to you, but that wooden floor looks quite comfortable though.
Tons of licks

Deefor said...

You are such a refined gentledog. It's just not worth engaging inferior creatures like Dex (and Arrow). That movie was disturbing. I hope I don't have bad dreams.


Martha Basset said...

Mango, you need to organise an AireRuby flight to bring you over to Scotland.
We can assure you it will not be too hot here!
As long as you like rain and it sounds as though you would enjoy sitting in the garden in the rain.
Stay cool friend.
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xxxx

Maggie and Mitch said...

How come your mom doesn't get you your own fan, Mango? We sure think you deserve it!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

tula said...

i don't know Mango--looks like DOOM is headed your way... take shelter!


Aniemother said...

Just hop on a plane and come over here, Mango. It's cool and rainy ;) We love the term labrastink!


Peanut said...

Our mom leaves our a/c on all the time but it doesn't cool our house down to much past 80. (mom says something about it being geo thermal which is stupid here in lousyana.) Though when it's 110 outside 80 seems nice. Hope you are cool today.

Woodrow, Sweetie, MJ Campanella said...

poor mango - yuo should come visit us in NY - our mommy hates the heat so our cave is 70 - 72 degrees - nice and cool for indoor play.

as for the yellow lab issue we know your pain and hope it all works out
