My Date with Pumpkin - Day 1

Please visit Mr. Darcy and give him your good thoughts. The Mango almost doesn't know what to say because his condition is changing hour to hour, but you just go and see him and help him get better so he can go home with his mom.

So I think maybe some cheery news is in order to help us generate positive vibes.

My mystery date.

Ever since she won first place in the Toy Group at Mango Minster, my little pal, Pumpkin, has been nagging me for a date. She totally developed a most large and quite understandable crush on me.

Well, the big day finally came around! That's right, time for my date with Pumpkin!

Pumpkin arrived in style as I would have expected. I was anxious that she not get her pretty white feet dirty and prudently arranged for a royal red carpet to accommodate her grand entrance.

Welcome to the Mango Estate!

Momma was waiting with a bag of official Boston Baked Beans to set the tone for our great adventure. I did my best not to let my large and voluminous slobbers get on Pumpkin given how mindful she is of her furs placement, but it was really hard to do. I mean, baked beans, right? Yummers.

I thought that a trip into Boston was in order to show off the sites of our fair city.

This necessitated a ride in my Mastiff Mobile. It was hard to be gracious with Pumpkin hogging the Mango spot. I think maybe she is just a tad bossy.

First stop, Yawkey Way! That's right, home of the Boston Red Sox.

We were spotted almost immediately by the pupperazzi.

I had thoughtfully purchased seats in the Green Monster for an official Red Sox baseball game! I figured that this would make us available for any home run hits which might occur.

Those hot dog vendors sure are stingy. When I asked for a Fenway Frank, he tried just giving me one hot dog! I am not so easily duped.

I said, "No, ONE BOX, please!"

That Pumpkin sure is small! She couldn't even finish one hot dog. That's OK, more for the Mango!

Wow! These are really yummers. Nice view of the park, huh? Go Sox!

Now at this point in the narrative, I must pause to point out to doggies that do not have the pleasure to live in Master Chew Sits that the combination of Boston Baked Beans and Fenway Franks can lead one to have a bit of an uncomfortable fullness.

Being no stranger to that sensation, I knew that a quick expulsion of Mango gas would make room for continued dining.

Hmmm... appears the Red Sox fans are unaccustomed to eu de mango.

In fact I soon found myself oddly alone in the Green Monster.

Where did everybody go?

I spotted Pumpkin on the jumbo tron. Apparently she had gone into the announcers booth for an interview. Seemed like an odd time for that. Whatever.

After our trip to Fenway, there was still much to see.

Pumpkin advised me that I would need to contain my gasses for the remainder of our date because she was quite put out by the odor (yuh, I am unfamiliar with ladylike doggies such as herself I suppose).

OK, I think I can handle that for a bit.

The swan boats are most famous and a great way to see the Boston Gardens.

I eagerly leapt aboard only to discover that swan boats are not Mango friendly, leaving me with a most curious wet feeling in my nether regions. Good thing the pond is shallow.

You can imagine that I made my dismay known. This is Mango discrimination! You must allow the Mango on the swan boat or make whatjacall accommodations.

Fearful of adverse publicity, the swan boat captain secured a barge from Boston Harbor and ushered Pumpkin and my large and I hope this thing floats self aboard.

This is a much nicer way to ride anyway. Look, we have it all to ourselves.

I must say that the paddle guy seemed a bit weak in the legs and was not able to get a good head of steam going for some reason.

Do I look larger than usual to you? I did feel a bit, er, inflated due to retention of my Franks and Beans induced gasses, but I suppose a little discomfort is worth it to be so honored as to be Pumpkin's escort.

Meanwhile, back at the estate...

To be continued...

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Gus said...

Pumpkin is darling! And E.Rabbit tells me that baseball is the way to a young woman's heart. So, you are on the right track. As long as Dexter doesn't ruin it.


The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

um---i don't think your date is going so well Mango--sorry big dude....

Life With Dogs said...

Best date ever for my money! We need to harness that Mango power for an alternative fuel source. :)

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

What a gentleman you are Mango. The red carpet treatment is such a nice touch, not sure about the Baked Beans though. You might have to go easy on those if you wish to date Pumpkin on a regualr basis.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Niamh said...


Pumpkin sure is cute but don't you think that she is bit high maintenance? I think you should date a girl who appreciates your relentlessly huge manliness. I'll be interested to see how the rest of this date goes!

Your friend,

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Woooos Mango Man! What a cool date you are taking Pumpkin on, I am sure she does not understand as well as I what it takes to please the RH, but that is what you get when you date those young glamour girls..... I hope she learns some great stuff from you, and and you both have a Magical Day!
-Kira The BeaWootiful

TwoSpecialWires said...

Mango. Was this Pumpkin's first date? Think of the standard you are setting!!! We're looking forward to reading more... and wonder where this will all end up. It could really go either direction, you know.

Shakin' our heads in amazement,
Jake and Fergi xxoo

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

PeeEssWoo: I expekht to be able to hear the shriekin' from my tree when she hears about this!

Jazzi said...

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Mango, not much makes our momma laugh like a hyena in the morning but you did it - you did it.

Momma put a little note to you on her bloggy post fur today since you's are not happy dat dere isn't a HUGE MANGO stencil. We are furry sorry 'bout the ommission by BH&G but maybe there was not a punkin' biggie enough☺

Jake of Florida said...


Ah, we were wonderin' if you could bring those major Mango gasses to Los Angeles where our Cardinals will be starting the playoffson Wednesday. If you sit in just the right section and aim just the right way, you could blow those Dodgers out of contention....

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Owner of Storm and Jackal said...

LOL! I never knew Dex was so long winded. :)

Nibbles Treats said...

What a soap opera! Geesh!

Lots of treats,
Tinkerbell, Oscar and Tucker

Pug(s) and Bugg said...

BOL Mango at those pictures... I can't believe people didn't appreciate your gassiness?

You sure did a lot of things you like... maybe for the rest of the date did you do anything Pumpkin likes? Like... the spa or something? BOL!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said... are in a very delicate condition and YOU SENT ME HOME??

Leaving Peewee to nurse you? (He does give one HOT candlelight tour of the barn, BTW...)

And you had a DATE with PUMPKIN??? And you made not one comment regarding the size of her backside?????

THIS IS COMPLETELY justs makes me want to

S H R I E K!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(the airsplittin' screech that Lacie emits temporarily knocks out electric service to the northeast...)

I'm not even signing this...


Mack said...

Pumpkin seems like a really swell lady. But the only thing that worries me is she doesn't appreciate your gasses.
Hey, Paris is always talking about her finishing school and it was called Pumpkin's Charm and Refinement Academy. Do you think it is run by your Pumpkin?

Marjie said...

These are some funny pictures, but your captions really slay me! Thor would totally think all of those things. And to the guy griping that his seat was taken, Thor would say, "ROO! Suck it up!"

Aniemother said...

The Army of Four said...

Well, who could BLAME her for having a crush on you? I mean... you're the MANGO MAN!
You look like you had a really nice time.

The OP Pack said...

Oh, Mango, you are such a gentleman, you really know how to treat a lady to the sights and sounds AND smells of Beantown.

Woos, the OP Pack

Sam said...

What a date!

Mango, who know you could be so pawsitively charming? Pumpkin is a lucky gal!

Swampechaun said...

Wow - that looks like quite an eventful date. Pumpkin sure is a looker! Can't wait to read the rest.


Cookie and Cinnamon's Mum said...

Mango, you've got a cute girlfriend! Good on you!

Asta said...

You awe such a gentleman
You have owganized a most spectacoolaw day fow you w date wif Punkin..she is gowgeous, but I think she needs to have somewhat bettew mannews, a little less self absowbed maybe? I pawsonally think, she should be sweeet to you and appweciate all youw fantastical effowts. It's not like she didn't know who she ws going on a date wif. Dextew's agenda seems less inviting..I mean flying and swimming awe fun and so awe tennis balls, but I wouldn't catewgowise thwowing up as a fun thing to do..whatevew, hehe
smoochie kisses

Dear Mango,
Looks like your date could be going better. But you know a barge is much more to your style!
I hope Dexter and Dennis follow proper OH&S!
hugs, Darcy Mumma

Mack and Sally Ann said...

It looks like fun.
Sally Ann

Brownie said...

OMD... Mango, there were tears streaming from my eyes! I am so glad you recovered from your stoned-out state in time for your date with the cute pumpkin.... I hope the date ends well!

1000 Goldens said...

What does it say about us, if "eau de Mango" was our favorite part? Looked like a great date with Pumpkin :)

Oskar said...

That Pumpkin is one, umm, err, lucky girl. That's it lucky.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
I was very wrong about your date!
Pumpkin is a sweetie!
Looks like you had a pawesome time! (farting included)
Dexter is doing what?? Oh-oh!
Kisses and hugs

Dory and the Mama said...

Hi Mango!! We are visiting and lifting paws for Darci!!

As for your date with Pumpkin..She looks very nice...but I think you may need somepuppy more down to earth...


Samantha said...

Hey Mango! Great date and super cool Boston things you've planned. But what's PeeWee up to? Watch your back. (bay)
xo sammie

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

Um Dexter...could you tell Mango that I don't think he will be able to publish part 2 of this saga...rumor has it blogger is going to be down sad for him....I'm going to run and get my kleenex...NOT.

AND you can tell him that the rumor that I pierced Scruffy's lip to see what it would look like is totally false.

Can't wait to try a nose-ring on him...MUCH easier to pull him around....


Oh...Mango may have heard something in the barn the night I was there...could you reassure him that he was on too many meds.

Duffy said...

Even I would say that baked beans would be a risk. But you did show Pumpkin a good time. Can't wait for the follow up.

Joe Stains said...

woah dude, that Pumpkin is a total princess and she seems a little teensy weensy bit high maintenance.

I am going to run outside and see if I can see Dennis and Dexter. DOUBLE D!


dogs and beans and the green monstah.. not sure that makes for a great date. Yah know.. I did see that on the news. Fenway Pawk evacuated. Gas bomb detected. Well a mango on the lam.. that would impress any pumpkin. I still don't know if you got kiss? Her entire body would feet in your lips.?

Dennis the Vizsla said...

hello mango its dennis the vizsla dog hay let me just say yore brother dexter is a littel bit crazy!!! i told all the other pilots abowt him and they cudnt beleev there eerz!!! ennyway i hope yoo enjoyd yore dayt and didnt sink into the water too mutch!!! ok bye

chicamom85 said...

Mango, You are quite the gentleman on a date, I am most impressed. Seriously though, beans and Fenway franks, you should have maybe thought about that one, but you did do a great job of clearing out the section. I can't wait for the next chapter.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

p.s. Mango Mom, you outdid yourself on this one, I can't stop laughing and everyone is in bed so I have to be quiet. Thanks for the fun. Anne

Michelle said...

This post was hysterical! People are looking at me strangely here at work, because I am laughing uncontrollably at my desk!
