Tricky T-Day

I want to share with you my most amazing leg weaves that I am learning as part of my dance routine.

I made a movie of me practicing with Momma. She is sometimes not very coordinated. You can ignore the middle part with stupid Pee-Wee all skittering across the kitchen floor.

Oh yeah, the movie was made in August even though it says July because the DOH is stuck in some sort of time warp thing.

HERE is the movie.

I don't have any new pictures today, so I will entertain you with some of my favorite photos of my large and handsome face.





Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Wow Mango! You totally rock. You should be on dancing with the stars or something. Also, I got my brother with stripes specifically in honour of you.

My mom says, hey, hasn't your mom's hair grown a whole bunch.

I say, I hope my mom doesn't make me dance.

OK, before we say anything -- we loved the video and Mom was smiling the whole time she watched the elegant moves of your relentlessly huge person and your Mom.

However -- because we think your Mom is a very cool lady but (thank doG) nowhere as huge as yourself -- we are thinking that perhaps you need someone like Shaq O'Neil to take the leg weaves to a whole new level. He has apparently expressed interest in new sports (he threw the first pitch out to Albert at the Cards game last week) so we suggest you contact him.

In the meantime, Dance On!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Ruby Bleu said...

OMD...that is so great Mango...tell your Mom she needs to get grow a little taller. If she does that, she won't be so uncoordinated...that's really the only solution because you are the perfect size!

As for PeeWee...are you sure he wasn't trying to ice skate???

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Eric said...

Ahh Mango I can't believe sinner Mom hasn't let me wag over to see the patio being built and Dexter swimming and that naughty Tricky Ricky. Apawlogies pal. I've just watched your Momma dance with you. She would be extrmely elegant if she didn't have a hooge dog to weave with. Maybe she could get some of those stilts or better still, grooovy platform shoes. That should help.

Wiry loves and kisses Eric xxx

Oh my lord...Mango mate, you're a star budddy. We think you've got the whole dance routine down pat. Your mama just needs slightly longer legs hehe.
Now about that award ... it wasn't us matie. It must have been another one of your maties. If you can't remember who you can say it was from us hehe.
Willow just got back from a walk with D. They saw that Mastif again, the one that lives in the tiny tiny house. Willow says that dog is bigger than the house it lives in. Not that the dog is huge but the house is so small lol.

Herro Mango!

Hey I do something similar with my mumma! She lifts up her leg and I knock her to the floor. Its lots of fun and I am very good at it. But we haven't done it in a long time for some strange reason.


smooches,
Mr Darcy

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oooh, Mango - you're making me feel guilty as I haven't done a Tricky-T Day in ages...my human kept promising to help me do the one about how we put together a dance routine but she has just been too busy to video us showing that...(sigh)...oh well, maybe next week!

I have to confess - I have had a sneak preview of your video, being one of your avid fans on the Tubey thing who gets notified of advance screenings...but I love it so much I'm going to watch it again!

Way to go, Mango!

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane
ps. be glad at least that you're not dancing with MY human...she is a midget!!!

Honey the Great Dane said...

ps. - I forgot to say - I LOVE that last photo of you with your face all collapsing in a heap!! Mine does that too sometimes, although I think you have much more skin than me...

The OP Pack said...

That was great, Mango - we are furry impressed with your skils. Mom needs to learn to kick a bit higher:) Everytime we see her she has a new do - looks good.

Tail wags, the OP Pack

the professionals said...

jeez mango you could take your momma for a ride!

Woodrow, Sweetie, MJ Campanella said...

What can we say Mango - dexter is one of those bidable breeds that is too eager to please there humans - did you see him skidding all over the place - silly bot

Us bullies are more refined and will not make a fool of ourselves like that!!!

please your mommies legs might be part of the problem - she needs to grow a foot od so

Woodrow - Sweetie - MJ

Lily and Benson said...

Oh Mango you are something else!!
Benny & Lily

BRUTUS said...

I think you either need a taller momma or she needs to learn to walk on stilts! I think maybe it would be easier for her to weave through your legs (wait - didn't she do that in a video post a few weeks ago?). Good luck with your dancing partner, Mango BOL

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
I was nervous watching your video! I was afraid your mom could fall down!
You and Dexter have very different ways for those weaves!
Kisses and hugs
Lorenza

Dory and the Mama said...

What wonderful relaxed leg weaves Mango!! Dexter is a bit "excitable" isn't he...BOL

Smileys!
Dory

Heather and Pumpkin said...

You should take it easy on the DOH, anyone with a fanny pack full of treats is a-ok in my book.

hero said...

Hi Mango,

That was a great leg weave video... man, you rock! I love your large and handsome face.

Licks, hero

Tosca the Lakeland Terrier said...

Cool video with your momma! You're pretty light on your feet, Mango!

Stella said...

Do they still make Elevator Shoes? They were made so people could be a few inches taller and if she could find them, it would be just what your Mom needs!

Good luck and good show!

Kisses,
Stella

Wooos Mango Man, you have the moves.... drooling over you.....

dewdana said...

OMD mango, to say that I was laughing outloud is an understatement! First of all, how on earth did you train your DOH to balance on one leg while holding a treat for you while you get a back rub on your way through. Brilliant! Your DOH is obviously very trainable!
Second, Did you put butter or vaseline or something on the kitchen floor to make pee wee slip n slide like that? Hilarious! I think his howard hughes nails are keeping him from getting a good grip! Hilarious practical joke for sure!
Also we love your pics as always. The last one is what I call melty beak because it looks like you are melting on the floor! Very Salvador Dali!

p.s. we are behind on Tricky T-day and maybe we will try to get a quick session posted now!

River said...

You are great at that t stuff. Your mom has good balance. PeeWee is wild.

love & wags,
River

Who needs aerobics when the Mango is around. Those leg lifts are better than any exercise machine. Way to go Mango and Mom. I love seeing pictures of your large and handsome face. Mom can never get enough of the Mango. Dexter was funny, you must have really shiny, slippy floors.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Deefor said...

I wish I could train my mom to hop around like that and give me treats. I gotta work on it. You were great Mango-- the People Whisperer. And I guess Dex was ok too.

MJ's doghouse said...

oh My Mango..you dance divinely...I do enjoy the pictures of your face...but i was wondering...do you think you could repost the picture of you in the tool belt....hubba hubba

The Thundering Herd said...

Uh, Dex, we hate to say it, but you are something of a spaz. it is cute and all, but still. Just a little excited there, huh?

And, Mango, that was quite some "dexterity" you were showing. Your mom needs longer legs, but it was cool.

MAX said...

Hey there, Mango the Man!!!
You are quite the talented one, aren't you! EISH, but you are big! We didn't realise that until we saw you and Mom together. We just wondered how you didn't manage to get that slobber on Mom's jeans?...another talent?
Yep, and we giggled ourselves gorgeous on Pee-Wee's leg spins! Wow, that was funny!
Thanks for sharing...EISH...have a nice day!
Lots of licks

Sam said...

Nice moves, guys! Mango you almost knocked your poor mom down! And Dexter, you look just like Marge when the treats come out.. crazy and ready to do anything to get them. Typical lab. :)

Life With Dogs said...

I like your swagger. Nice takedown attempt!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Nobody does snoozles like the Mango man.

Maggie and Mitch said...

We give your mom a 10 for excellent balance! Great job, Mango!
Do you ever have to clip PeeWee's nails or do they wear down naturally? He's pretty excitable, isn't he?!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

1000 Goldens said...

That was one of my favorite videos! Mango, you're not really big, Mom is just small, right? I like when Dexter is skidding on the kitchen floor too :)

Bae Bae said...

You sure can dance really well. ;)

Mack said...

The Mango Tango!

We think you are one great dancer and looks like your momma got her exercise as well!

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

we think your weaving is perfect but your human needs to practise--HAHAHA!!! and oh yeah! we forgot about that gravity thing on the moon--hehehe! perhaps we are so heavy we were able to stay on the surface. good obsevation--hehe!!

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

oh yeah--and the best part of the video is at 1:22 and then again at 1:28 LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Martha Basset said...

Mango, we have said it before, you are very dainty on your feet. You could take up ballet.
Your mom will need more work right enough - you may have to look for another partner to accompany you on stage!
love

Agatha and Archie said...

Ludo van Doggy said...

Wow Mango! You gots the moves!!
Very pawsome work there. Your Mom did good too, mine would so fall over all the time if she had to lift her legs in the air.
Dexter did good too, but dude, labs is maniacs! BOL!
~lickies, Ludo

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

Great job, Mango! My problem is that I cannot be bribed with treats. Can you believe that?

Woofs,
Tommy

Moco said...

You are the Man! You need a trainer with longer legs though.

Brownie said...

Mango, your momma needs longer legs OR she should be weaving between YOUR legs! BOL!!!!

Amber and Nala said...

Very handsome indeed....can't wait to see your new moves! :)

Kisses,
Nala

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Great job Mango you are really talented we think it is mom that needs practice...hehe
Good job Pee-Wee you are bit smaller and it is easier for you to get under mom's legs..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Cookie and Cinnamon's Mum said...

Mango, watching your video, I was reminded that you are huge and grand!

Owner of Storm and Jackal said...

That was great! I sometimes wish my dogs were bigger. Then I wouldn't have to bend down to pet them or give them treats. It would be soooo cool.

Dexter I think is trying to make you look bad by acting all "eager to please"! You should go tell him he's a bad labradude.

ocmist said...

Mom just LOVES looking at your pictures and studying your artistic "skin waves..." Hope to get a chance to check out your dancing vid soon, but it is late and takes to long to download and we still have some MAJOR blog catching up to do!

Biggie-Z said...

That's some pretty amazing leg weaves. I left a comment on your video too but YourTube might've ate it.

I am totally going to try that with my Momma. Luckily I'm a little shorter than you so hopefully I won't trip my Momma up when I do them - I already know "under" (through the legs) and so long as she stands up straight, everything is cool. (Luckily P-Daddy is taller... tee hee my secret word is "dingled" - made me thing of walking under P-Daddy!)

Dexter, you are a total cracker dog doofus. Your supposed to walk UNDER your Momma, not head butt her! And that traction malfunction - dude, not cool.

Joe Stains said...

Its like Dexter's back legs are not even part of his body, look at them go. SCARY.
