Please stop by the one and only Miss Opy's bloggy and send her your healing love. She had big splurgery this week and is feeling a bit under the weather.

My hiney is sore again and I am bored.

I think it is because momma tried her pointless front and back crosses with me the other night and there was just too much spinning and turning for the Mango.

So I sent Master to the V-E-T to get me some more of those Non Stair Oi Doll Anti In Flame Stories and am feeling better.

But even so, Momma said, "No dancing or running!" tonight. But what about my nightly entertainments? The Mango is BORED!

So in a most cruel attempt to tire me out, she insisted on pulling out the stupid intellectuals stimulations toys. She claims that if I am compelled to think hard that I quickly become exhausted. Huh?

Here is the movie. For the record, I got the hot dogs all out of the bloody thing in 25 seconds less than sluggish brained Pee-Wee. Ha!

Note I said HOT DOGS not KIBBLES! You know who I'm talkin to.

But I was not tired! I was invigorated! So we got out the Cuz's. I always get to choose which one I want first. I will take the blue Cuz, thank you very much.

How did this happen? Not again! Idiot black devil dog has my most favorite Cuz (it's the only one that still talks).

I will fool him into thinking the orange one is even more fun.

Oh look, Pee-Wee! This orange Cuz is so much fun! Oh dear! I do so hope you do not abandon the blue Cuz and rob me of this most happy making orange one. Hehehe.

He cannot resist. Look, he is bringing the most best Cuz right to me!

And fleeing with the defective orange one!

The Mango triumphs!

Um, excuse me, that is not the Cuz I requested.

Oops! Where did it go?

I hidied it in my large and no match for even the jumbo cuz jaws. Magic! Yuh!

Just being handsome.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Is it just me or does the khuz sound like THE BEAST???

PeeEssWoo: Won't your momma let woo watch The Khyra Channel 24/7?

Tosca the Lakeland Terrier said...

Cuz's make the best sound everrrr!!! Well, of anything that isn't an animal in the jaws of a terrier.

Stella said...

Way to go, Mango. That game certainly made your brain at least several percentage points smarter.
And then the Cuz for fun (and you were very clever to get the blue one from PeeWee!)


Mack and Sally Ann said...

Go Mango Go, you are very smart.

The OP Pack said...

The game looks like fun but you really don't need intellectual stimulation, Mango - look at how smart you are to fool Pee Wee with the cuz.

woos, the OP Pack

Pee Ess, we hope your hiney feels better after your meds.

The Thundering Herd said...

Wooo - you also won the slobber on the game award!

Sam said...

Hope your bum is doing better! Remind me again of what ailment you're afflicted with (besides anti-front-and-back-cross-syndrome)?

Maybe I should get Marge a cuz. If it's cool enough to entertain you, perhaps she'll like it too.

Chester said...

Hiya Mango! You need to work for an Intelligence Agency with all those well thought out plans to get the best Cuz.

You know they always have only the most handsomest dawgs workin' for them. You can be Mango Bond!

Bond. Mango Bond.

I hope you get to drive one of them Aston Martini cars.
Chester ;0=)

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

Is it our imagination or are ur jowls hanging down lower than usual??? Maybe all that intellectual stimulations made them have more gravitational pull or somethin'????

Um...we've never heard a Cuz shriek like that. It was rather disturbing. Did you kill the thing or just torture it? Poor Cuz....

Do you have someplace you can go where you can sniff the leaves? We've been to the park the last three days and have come home exhauted...not from walkin'...just from sniffing. Oh...Scruffy dug a hole by a tree today lookin' for a chipmunk. (Stan and I saw the chipmunk...he was like 30 feet away, but you know the brainlessness of Scruffy.) So he starts to dig and when the dirt flew out between his hind legs it rustled the he thought the evil chipmunk was attacking him from behind. This happened like 35 times. How can a dog be so stoopid?

Kisses, Darling...


Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos Mango Man, awesome job in tricking the labradork! And hot dogs too! Yum!
I hope your RH hiney feels better soon!

BRUTUS said...

Mango, don't know how you could ever be bored with all the crazy things that go on there in Massachusetts!! We don't know what a Cuz is, but are glad you enjoy them so much! When I get bored, I just torment my labradork!!

Brutus the Frenchie

Agatha and Archie said...

HA!!! That board game is a bust ..once you figure it out you can get the hot dog out in like 12 seconds..unless you are Archie or Pee Wee....As for that Cuz? I am glad that the method I went over with you on how to make your brother think that one toy is better that the other so you can get the good one worked...Piece of cake right? Love A+A

Murphy Dogg said...

Hope your butt feels better soon, big guy. BTW, I think your rear might be a bit too, um, large to be referred to as a "hiney."
No offense, I'm just sayin'.

Sophie Brador said...

You are bored because I am not there. If I were there, you would be beside yourself with unboredom. But please don't invite the flapjack.


Benny and Lily said...

Good job Mango fooling that little black devil dog!
Benny & Lily

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Mango - sorry to hear about your 'hiney' - I do hope it gets better soon!

I must say - that last picture had my human absolutely DROOLING - she just really has this thing for dogs with wrinkly, droopy faces and she says your jowls in that shot - the way they are all just drooping and hanging down either side of your mouth...are just SUPERB!!! SOOOOO gorgeous!!!!

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

Heehee! You are So Very Clever!!! Sorry to hear that you are on that flame-putter-outer things. Mr. Bufus gets those once a month for his Arthur-itis, and they always seem to make him throw up. (Not that it take much to make him throw up - he IS a cat after all, and that seems to be what they DO.) I am so sorry that you are bored, but I think that you could use this valuable time to come up with more plans to annoy and outwit PeeWee. I hope your hiney feels better soon!

*kissey face*

Amber and Nala said...

Being bored stinks but ti looks like you had some fun with your cuz. :)


brooke said...

Cuz's are the best toys. Darwin got a tiny one when she was tiny, but we've had to move it to the donate pile cause were afraid shes going to swallow it. So now she has a big red one like yours!
Loved the slobber on the brain game... they tricked you using hot dogs! sneaky!

Two Country Poodles said...

What antics Mango!

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
I hope those meds are working for you!
You are very smart!
Kisses and hugs

TwoSpecialWires said...

Personally, we think you are missing that cute little spunk Oliver, and that's why you're bored. Of course that wouldn't explain the sore hiney or the perpetual handsomeness, but it's one explanation. We know you won't admit it, but you have to agree it IS a possibility. Remote. But still a possibility.

BTW. Fergi wants to know how she can get a bottle of that Mango Suds. Lac recommended it ... that means Fergs thinks she's GOTTA have it.

MAX said...

Hey there Mango dude!
Sorry to hear that you are ailing, big guy! Hope those meds work quickly too! But it seems that you are well ahead of the pack on the intellectual front...out-live, out-last, out-witting that labradude. Be gentle on him...
Yay Mango!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

hello mango its dennis the vizsla dog hay wel dun yoo shoor playd pee wee all rite!!! just like on the faymus televizhun dokyoomentry survivor!!! ok bye

Martha Basset said...

Mango, we couldn't work out where the squeaks were coming from at the end of your video - we were so relieved when we saw you had an entire squeaky in your mouth!!!
That mental stimulation - that is a lot of work and you would have thought that your mommo would at least have put it on a non slip mat!
Really enough to drive a dog mad!
We say we start finding these 'toys' for humans and they have to work things out for ages before they get a chocolate!
We bet they'd be drooling big time....
love you lots
Martha & bailey xxxx

monica said...

yo Mango, you are definitely handsome - the glorious and bold mastiff way! we can fool them all -we look very serious and thoughtful, all the while we are thinking of all kinds of new tricks ( and treats..) :o) Bundy

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

that video was so funny. now for some real fun--lmao

Frankie Furter said...

Mango Man, your cuz video was super. Your magnificent jowels totally covered it. Loved the sounds it made.
I had a grrreat adventure yesterday, can't wait to blog you about it.

Mack said...

We really love your new bloggy look!
Mom's rottie used to hide all her toys under her large and beautiful self. I think you two would have hit it off. She was just I little smaller than you.

Samantha said...

Great job messing with the Dexter!!! Love your cuz "squeak tunes" - you are very talented AND sneaky too! Waaay good thinking, Mango, you handsome man!
xo Sammie

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Mango - you're the man!! And we love you for it!

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Tiffany and the Munchkins said...

I think PeeWee and Lexus are related. She does the same thing to me that PeeWee does to you. She always wants MY toy even if she has her own. Sheesh. Mom said to tell you that last picture of you is furry handsome.

Chihuahua kisses,

Marjie said...

Just being handsome is an excellent Mastiff trick. We all do it well. I had achy swelly problems this summer ant that V-E-T gave me those Stair-Oi-Dolls. They are not nice. My vet is very nice, and they recognize superior Mastiff when they see him, so told my Momma to throw away the Stair-Oi-Doll pills. I am glad you were able to fool Pee-Wee. Just because he runs more does not make him smarter. Momma and I are glad you enjoyed your hot dogs!

Envious drools,

achieve1dream said...

Whoa Mango, what did you do to your blog? It looks so different. You definitely must have been bored. I'm gonna go watch your video and do cute head tilts for my human if it sounds as good as everyone says. :)


Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Mango Major,
I just noticed that you have another top secret blog, can't climb in though. Keep your secret, Mango man.
Love ya

Anne-Kathrine said...

LOL love the pics and video. You can't even see the Cuz in your mouth lol.

Last pic sooo handsome!

chicamom85 said...

Count Mangula, it is too bad they don't make a large Mango size version of that toy for your snooter. It looked quite slimy when you got done. I love squeaky toys also, once the noise is gone they are no fun and its time to move on to another toy. You are very smart to trick Peewee like that.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Swampechaun said...

The last picture is priceless. I didn't realize how sassy Mango Man can be. Usually the big burly ones aren't sassy but I can see it now.

By the way - I use the templates at to update my background for the seasons. It's super easy.

The Army of Four said...

I gotta tell ya, Mango Man, we were pretty bored, too - but the readers had such stellar ideas, that we spent a VERY productive day yesterday. See our blog for lots of cool ideas!
Play bows,
PS: Thanks for the reminder about Opy; Storm stopped by and left a comment just now.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We are sorry you aren't feeling great these days. We are sure the VET stuff will help.. You are one lucky pup to have PeeWee trained to bring you your favorite cuz... Take it easy so you get better real soon...

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

C.l.o.v.e.r. said...

Hi Mango!
I love that trick you did to get the best cuz from Dexter. I must try that with Chewy!!

Cookie and Cinnamon's Mum said...

I am sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. Hope your legs will heal soon.

I'd never heard of Cuz. It looks like fun to play with it.

1000 Goldens said...

Mango, I am astounded by your brilliance on a daily basis! I hope you can get back to your nightly entertainments soon.

Brind'Amour said...

Hi Mango! I love your new bloggie look! I thought I was at the wrong place for a minute.

My cousin, Benny, really likes his cuz too! I just prefer cookies.


Sassy Kat said...

Thank you so much for coming to my retirement send off. It meant a lot to me that you two were there. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and I had a great time with you at the party.
Love to you and your family.

Rudy said...

I think we have a cuz and it squeaks something awful when Ollie bites it! It makes so much noise our peoples can hardly hear the TV...

Hey we saw another Mastiff at the agility trials last weekend! It might have been the same one we saw a while ago. He/she did great!



Hi M and PW
Bored.. bored.. today especially. That mental game was such a tease?! What 3 bits of food - the pay out is it worth it? I noticed the mango suds his up for cleaning. Nice squeaky work.

Hey mom has me in agility prep and I get distracted by moving things. More interesting than watching mom say look at me. Tula even gave me her special duck, salmon, turkey super attention mix. I know your class would help but any tools or tricks you find helpful for a dog with a high chase anything that moves drive.


nice new fresh and clean blog design... two paws up

Oskar said...

I'm sorry about your Owie-butt! obviously you need more meditation time, not brain drain games!

Luda's Mummy said...

Hey, Mango-

It wuz nice of yoo to vizit my new blog. I tolled my mummy that we must vizit yours and leeve a message.

There wuz a Neopolitain Mastiff in my doggie class. I eggspected him to be pink and white and brown like i-screem, but thare wuz no such luck.

I must say that you are more huge and awsum than he.

Yer pal,

ocmist said...

That looks like an interesting game. I just know my Dad's working out how to make something like that for the pups to work on now that he's seen that! You were so smart to figure it out so quickly too! When will Pee-Wee ever learn that he's NO MATCH for you in the intellectual department! Dott
