First Snow - Oh no!

Yesterday morning we got our first snow of the season. According to weatherdog Mango it is TOO SOON for snow!

To make matters worse, it was most slippery. I advised the Pee-Wee that there would be absolutely NO running about cracker dog given the slippery conditions which are most hazardous to my large and not made of rubber self.

Humph! Kid doesn't mind his elders very well. STOP RUNNING ABOUT!

Sure, look at him all full of himself.

What a big show off he is. You know, I could totally do that dumb jump on the deck thing if I wanted to.

Does this look like a happy face to you?

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

That snow is JUST NOT RIGHT. We have had a very cold fall here in Michigan and we don't like it one bit!

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

You're right, Mango. It is definitely TOO SOON for snow!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Mango you should enjoy the snow. We rarely get it and we would love to just play in it...

You sure look unhappy to us, Mango. We would love some snow but we are stuck in jail. Maybe if you just roll around in it, it will disappear.

Woos, the OP Pack

Chloe and Libby said...

Wow, snow already? I'd have to agree with you Mango, its just too early for that stuff.

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Oh that looks awful Mango. The other day I had to walk on a damp sidewalk and it was just the worst!


pam said...

No Mango we would have to say that is a not happy face. We've got the same faces on here in Michigan.

Please don't jump on the porch. You might hurty yer large and not rubbery bottom. k bye

Snow, we don't ever really have snow. In my live time, I've seen snow five or six times. Mommy would love to live where it snows, so I would too.

Poor Mango! I know just how you feel. Mom and I are NOT looking forward to the cold.


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

Oh Mangodarling...

Did I just read that Pumpkin had to get her paws damp on a wet sidewalk? Hmm...and she didn't like it? I can't wait for your next date with her...I'm thinkin' you guys should go MUD WRESTLING??!!

We are most glad we came to Master Chew Sits last weekend and not this one...State College, PA got a half of foot of snow Thursday...Bruvver is there for Homecoming this weekend. Penn State cancelled Tailgaiting this weekend cuz of it...he and his friends had to be satisfied with Walmart parking lot...interesting, huh?

I hope you don't mind if I post that snap I took of you in the bathtub last weekend? I'll post it tomorrow...will give me lots of time to run and hide.


Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

Mango man,

You sure do know how to do some good faces. Congrats on the snow! Sorry to hear you don't like it...We love the snow (in small amounts). Maybe you might enjoy it more if you had some booties and a sweater! BOL BOL BOL

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo

Maggie and Mitch said...

You sure don't look one bit happy about the snow, Mango! Unfortunately, we're with Dexter this time - we LOVE the snow!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Stella said...

Seems like you haven't been happy about much lately, Mango. And now you have Lacie's picture of you to look forward too. Maybe a month or so at a Spa would be a good thing for you. Check it out with your Mom.


See! My word verification is RESTED!

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

I do believe woo are trying to lure my pantyloons AND f.t. to Master Chew Sits!

All I have STILL is rain rain wet wet rain rain!


1000 Goldens said...

Mango Man, sorry about the early snow, and being forced to contend with the labradork running cracker dog. It's a lot to take in all at once! (Not to mention his ninja style deck leaping - how did he do that?)

BRUTUS said...

Oh no! We are in Big Earl and will drive through your state tomorrow! Didn't know worrer or I would've had momma write ya! We are in Portland, ME tonite, and it certainly is cold enough to snow - Brrrrr!! Think I'm gonna have to have mom put a sweater on me to go outside....

We'll be sure to be on the look-out for your Hugeness - gotta think you'd be hard to miss! In the mean time, if you see a big tan coach with "BIG EARL" on the plates, you better look out (dad is a crazy driver!)!

Samantha said...

Whoa Mango - that snow definitely looks too slippery for the RH. Don't mind PeeWee - he's jes showing off. However... you do not have on your happy face.
xo Sammie


I thought moose like the snow?

brooke said...

Though they say it doesn't usually snow in Seattle, the 3 years I've been here it's snowed (and stuck) every winter. I'm hoping it does at least a little this year so Darwin can experience it. Don't know how she'll do with it, but it should be entertaining.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
I am with you! No snow for me either!
Not that I have had some but it looks very cold to me!
Better stay inside your home... warm and comfy!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

MAX said...

Hey there Mango dude!
SNOW?!! That looks like sugar-coated frosting to me(we call it 'icing-sugar' here!). Have you tried licking it? I LOVE ice blocks outta the fridge.
Anyway, be good, be happy, just be the Grrrreat Mango!...and remember there is a sunny spot here for you to think about.

Noah the Airedale said...

Snow...already....strewth!!! When does the snow usually start to fall in Masterchewsits? You might be in for a long cold winter matie.


hero said...

Hi Mango,

It's already snowing at your end, huh! ... and I can see the smirk in Dexter at the garden and on top the deck. Take care big fella!

Licks, hero

Martha Basset said...

Hi Mango,
We find the snow rather cold on our tummies!!!
At least you have long legs. Well just you take care and ignore that Dexter!!!

Mack said...

Actually that face looks like you are saying "Why the heck is it snowing in October??"

Looks like perfect napping weather to me.

The Thundering Herd said...

Oops - you forgot to include the video of you jumping up on the deck.

Ain't snow great!

Frankie Furter said...

Mango my method of dealing with that snow .... PEE on it. If I had snow here this early I would put on a mad face too. Yours is grrreat big and magnificent

Life With Dogs said...

Too soon is right! And this time around it missed us frozen fools in the north! :p

Murphy Dogg said...

Aaack! Snow! Evil white slippery stuff ...

The Army of Four said...

Can we come over?!?!

Tiffany and the Munchkins said...

So THAT'S what snow is. Mommy says she is jealous because we don't get snow here. I think that snow stuff might be too cold for us but it sure does look pretty! And we KNOW you could totally jump up on the deck if you wanted to. :)

Chihuahua kisses,
The Munchkins

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

dexter is so cute how he jumps on the deck--i think he enjoys being higher than you Mango!

Woodrow, Luna, MJ Campanella said...

poor mango man - hope the weather vleared up a little for you now

Wow snow already! We had a cool front come thru which dropped the temps from mid 90s to 60s-70s, much better :)

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

Definitely NOT a happy face. I would advise that you not come visit until June, 2010 in order to avoid snows. (I'd suggest you come visit us next month while we are down south in The House With Wheels, but I have a feeling that your RH self might not fit. Besides, we are already getting a "special allowance" because I am bigger than the 15lb dogs they allow. I have a feeling you might push their size limits just a little too far...)

*kissey face*

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Wow, Mango - you have snow??? I've never seen snow - wonder if I'd like it?

It's so weird that you are having cold snow and we're going into summer and everyone's heading for the beach!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Mango. Even if you WERE made of rubber (that's a horrid thought). doesn't rubber get stiffer in the cold? We suggest you stay near the fire. With a hot toddy. And work on your horizontal meditation.

Love ya,
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Um, how DOES he do that exactly?? Does he have hydraulics or something??
