A Flat Trip into the Big City

Yesterday I heard Momma talking about abandoning me to go into the big city of Boston Master Chew Sits and hang out with some other DWB ladies. Not to be totally excluded, I borrowed a page from Brutus the Frenchie and had Master render flat versions of me and Pee-Wee that would be subtle enough not to cause alarm amongst the city folk.

Momma is unaccustomed to driving on the highway in traffic and was most enraged when she reached the toll plaza where apparently many illiterate humans did not understand the signs saying, "cash people stay right" and subsequently created a most large traffic jam. She got HBO word mad and after fifteen minutes even cut off a lady that she called a very bad name. Shocking.

But eventually we did arrive at our first destination, that's right, the actual estate of Agatha and Archie! Oh boy!

They were most eager to greet me and took us all on a lovely walkie in their neighborhood.

To my delight, flat Asta was in residence at the A&A estate and the two of us were shown the view from A&A's observation tower. Lucky for me my flat self can go up stairs because they live way up in the sky, huh?

I even got to visit Agatha's bomb shelter.

Hmmm... this bed sure looks comfy.

I did note that Agatha and Archie have many more beds than my large and in need of soft places to meditate self. I am going to speak to Momma about that.

Flat Pee-Wee briefly considered sticking himself into the terrier jaws of doom.

But quickly changed his mind after witnessing Archie doing his smack down moves on Agatha.

I think Agatha should come to my house to teach the puppy the proper response to a big dog which is to roll over and freeze, not go all wiggly squirmy forcing one to subdue him with one's large and full of many sharp teeth snooter.

Off we went into the North End of Boston. I was worried it might be snowing, what with being up north and all, but except for a slight breeze, it was almost the same weather as at my estate.

The whole place smelled most yummerlishous of tasty Italian foodables.

We had to wait at the bar for our table.

Look! Its Eric the Square from across the big pee! He had to bring signs to interpret his words what with him speaking British and all which is almost like American, but kind of difficult to understand.

I think flat Asta is already passed out on the bar.

Flat Lacie was there too and Pee-Wee was brave enough to check out her butt. Yikes! It really is enormous!

I wish Master had made my flat self life size. Look at what a pin head I am next to the big old swelled headed beastie.

Isn't it amazing how the humans resemble their pups?

For example, here are Lacie and Duffy's mom's at dinner.

Along with Asta's mommi and my own Momma who never looked better I must say.

Nature calls...

Idiot Pee-Wee got confused about the proper location in which to conduct his personal business.

But Lacie and Asta soon set him straight.

After dinner, as we left the restaurant most full of yummers foodables, who should we meet but Toffee! In person!

You can imagine how the pupparzzi were all snapping their flashie boxes. And the peoples were stopping and staring at this famous Boston pup.

And she brought Riley who apparently has legs made of springs and an extra motor to wag his stumpy little tail.

By the time we got home it was very late and even though only my flat self went, I was still exhausted.

Besides, the puppy alarm will go off at 5AM no matter when one retires, so best to catch a bit of shut eye post haste.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!


RDX said...

Wow you must be wore out. What an adventure! You have to get up at 5am?? I sleep until eight or nine in the morning even after my humans get up. :)


chicamom85 said...

Mango your flat self is amazingly just as handsome as you are(sans body giggle). You look adorable sleeping in your bed. What a nice day for Mommy and all the Mommies.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

p.s. Mommy wants to know if you have considered letting the Mango come and live with us?? She is just kidding of course but we do love the Mango and Dexter and Oliver.

doyle and mollie said...

woofhoo that was a flatout aventure for sure - nice one!

The Army of Four said...

Wow. That was VERY exciting! I'd be exhausted, too.
Play bows,

Daisy Dog said...

That looks like a fun flat adventure! I think if your momma made you life size you may not have been able to sneak into the resturant!

Sam said...

LOL! Too funny! Especially Dexter and the bathroom.

You guys are lucky to go on such a big adventure.

Gus said...

Wow, what an adventure you had. Glad you made it home safely.


BRUTUS said...

And the other patrons in the restaurant just might have been staring?? Can't wait to see where your flat selves end up next!

3-D Snorts,
Brutus the Frenchie

Cookie and Cinnamon's Mum said...

Flat trip?! What an interesting idea!! But, were you able to breathe in your flat self?

Aniemother said...

What an adventure. For some reason Mom is having major giggles thinking about the non-DWB people at the restaurant when your mommies brought your flat versions along...


Murphy Dogg said...

Hmmm, you gave me an idea. I wonder if Dad could make a flat Murphy Dogg to take to the nudie bar with him??

Maggie and Mitch said...

We can imagine how exhausted you must be after that totally fun adventure, Mango! We agree that your head should have been life-sized! You and Lacie look to be the same size and that's simply not true!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Marjie said...

I use a lot of HBO words at toll booths. Thor would be shocked, too. Mango, good job keeping the home front safe while still visiting friends!

Oskar said...

It looks like your flat selves had a yummy good time!

Benny and Lily said...

Oh my goodness Mango that is a funny story. Those kids were sure happy to see you. And mom with gutter mouth. She must have forgotten the kids were in the car.

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

PeeEssWoo: My mom says way to on the driving 'fun'! People are RUDE and STOOPID and SHOULD BE - well, nevFUR mind!

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Looks like a good time was had by all. Wish we'd been along.

Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Wow, you and your flat self had fun. I bet flat Laci is not as scary as real Laci. Have fun.

TwoSpecialWires said...

We were just thinking that was probably the quietest that pack of doggies would ever be, all in one place together. And then we thought of the chatter and laughter behind the flattened faces. What a great time we KNOW you had!!!! We were happy dogs and people to find this post!

Thanks, Mango, for making it so we didn't have to wait too long!

Rest now. (Are you going to create a flattened puppy so you'll remember him always... it's not too long now before he leaves...)
Jake and Fergs xxoo

Dutch the Pug said...

Aww Mango you look so cuddley in your bed!

The OP Pack said...

What a big day you had, Mango, heading in to the big city. Our Mom remembers well those long lines at the toll booths as she would head to Newton to get our human sister at college or head to 495 to go to the Cape. You looked quite nice as a flat Mango. You had such a busy day, not hard to understand why you are so tired.

Tail wags, the OPPack

Heather and Pumpkin said...

After our big adventure, I hope the presence of your flat self in the big city did not cause alarm.


The Thundering Herd said...

5 am puppy alarm? Does it have a snooze button? Our human slaps his alarm really hard and we try not to be anywhere close to that arm when the alarm squawks.

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

Hmm....this post is very disturbing, darling. I am very confused seeing my (ahem) extremely FLAT and PETITE backside in these pictures...I um actually HAVE NO MEMORY OF GOING INTO THE "LADIES" WITH ASTA....was I a teensy bit tipsy??? Or being at the Estate? Am I dreaming???? The oddest thing is when Mumsie walked in the door tonight...I COULD SWEAR I COULD SMELL YOU ALL OVER HER JEANS...and there were some MANGO SUDS REMANTS ON HER SHOES....

(Lacie shakes her head furiously and thinks she may have had a few too many of her own smoothies to lose a whole weekend....)

Um...I am very confused...I think I shall get into my purple jamies and just go to bed. Maybe I'll be less confused in the morning...????

Barkies and kisses...


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


Scruffy and Stan!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

That was quite an adventure Flat Mango and Flat Dexter had! I can see why it would leave you flat in your bed!

Agatha and Archie said...

ARE YOU KIDDING ME??????ARCHIE?????TAKING ME DOWN???no no no ...that was just a shot of me showing him a new ball room dance move.....Excuse me for just a minute( Lacie darling,really you don't remember that bathroom?????) Sleep tight our main man.. we have sudsy memories of our visit...Love and kisses A+A

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Thanks for sharing the Mom's time together!
Sure it was nice you all were there "in flat"
Kisses and hugs


Mango and Dex
After spending time with you today I can't believe your momma made you one dimensional and then inserted a stick into certain places...

You were lucky to hit A & A's and the north end. I've only heard about it. Perhaps if I convert to another dimension, i can join the fun too.

Oh.. I'll try to post more relatable content... such as staring into space in deep meditation posts, farting, and attacking innocent cute defenseless puppies.

MAX said...

Hey Mango dude
(Is this the new type of Granny's "BRAG Book"?)
You guys are really crazy!...BUT we love it!

Randi said...


What an adventure you & RH had! Even your flat selves (how the heck did RH get so flat? He must have been the size of TEXAS being that flat!) are very handsome & I think everyone should have a flat version of themselves...GOOD IDEA! You never know when you're gonna meet some DWB friends!

Oh & you know what? You said there must be a reason for such a pretty rainbow? Well, my mom/secretary knocked on her empty noggin this morning after reading your comment, went back to looked at the date of the pic & it turned out to be Sept. 29, 2009 - exactly 2 weeks ago - which was the exact date of the 2 & a half year anniversary of my brother Dublin's crossing to Rainbow Bridge! & the two year anniversary of the funeral of my mom/secretary's stepdad - hence, the DOUBLE RAINBOW!~ So thank you my little cub for making my mom think a little bit...she hasn't been doing too much thinking lately & hence the lack of posting & visiting....but this new revelation has inspired her that all things are for a reason & that one of the reasons is: GET YOU BUTT IN HEAR & HELP RANDI POST!!!!

Love & Licks,

Mack said...

What a fun time flat Mango and flat Dexter had!

Niamh said...

You got to see Agatha's bomb shelter?? You lucky dog Mango! And all their great beds! Looks like you had fun with all the moms.

Your friend,

Deetz said...

Wow, I have missed so much in your life Mango Man.
You gots to meet Agatha and Archie? I would love to meet them! Even if it was on a stick.
AND you have been invaded by another lab puppy? He even called the police and had you arrested for a lil scratch!
We sure have missed you!

Martha Basset said...

What a cool adventure - you seem to be having such fun these days!
Out and about in the big city and socialising.
Our Dad would get on well with your mom - he moans about needless traffic jams too and keeps saying "can these people not read!"
Should we introduce them and they can moan together?
Martha & Bailey xxxxx

Swampechaun said...

Yeah, I'd have to say the last pic is the best. It is exhausting living vicariously through your flat-self. I'll have to get as creative as your momma.

Anne-Kathrine said...

Oh what fun!!!!

Brownie said...

what a GREAt adventure! My momster once went to the big Boss-town and the taxi took a route that went through a toll... and my momster was FUMING as she was watching the meter shoot up into the stratosphere...!
