Big Storm Coming!

We heard on the news that there is a big snow storm coming tonight, so I felt it important to make sure everything was ready.

I was quite impatient to go outside and check on the condition of the estate. As you can see in this movie, Momma is most sluggish getting all her winter clothing on. I also seem to experience some sort of weird selective hearing impairment when I am eager to make my exit (did you hear her say "sit"? hehehe).

I do my best to keep PeeWee from bouncing off momma's face by trying to give him smackdowns, but he is most wiggly.

Once outside, we soon discovered this pressie that Master bought for Momma. This is to help her keep my observation deck and pathways clear of most annoying and slippery making snow.

I insisted that we read all the instructions.

No sooner did we get it out of the box than PeeWee went total cracker dog intruder alert. I mean insane, like hair standing up growling maniac. I was not sure why he was so upset, but I did gamely bark along just to make sure he didn't feel like too much of an idiot.

Honestly, I don't know what got in to the little guy. Not like it was something really scary like, say, a stupid Santa hat.

WARNING! This movie has loud PeeWee sounds in it. In fact the little twerp goes on high alert whenever I play it back. Duh, its YOU barking... idiot.

Note to readers... yes, I do get droolcicles.

OK, so then we napped and hung out and stuff and it got to be dark outside. I wanted to show you the tree on our new front porch all lit up. I think that momma only wanted the porch so she would have a place to put a tree.

We had to make a last run outside before it started getting snowy. I opted to aid in the melting of the big snow ball.

And participate in some tug of war.

Whilst the squirt burned off steam with the giant tennis ball.

Then one final trip to the market to make sure the humans had enough whoopee pies and whatnot to get them through the evening.

WTF? Its my flat self in the front seat! I found this most distressing. Surely my round self and my flat self are not supposed to exist at once. Isn't that like if the two Captain Kirks met?

I decided to stay as far away from my flat self as possible lest we bring about the end of days.

Home at last and ready to hunker down for the night (as soon as I find the energy to move my large and most liking it in the mastiff mobile self).

Stay tuned. Unless we lose power, there will be BIG SNOW photos tomorrow night.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Slobbers Teal'c

iheartsnark said...

Flat Mango and Round Mango together? That is what must have triggered the snow! We're just getting flakes here now...we can't wait to romp in the all the white stuff!!

Yer pals,
Sketcher and Angel

Randi said...

Aw Mango!

Wouldn't you know it, but I just watched the new Star Trek last night! & now I know about the two Captain Kirks! Wow...what a co-inky-dink!

& what the hell is going on with PeeWee? He is totally quacker dog against that red snow shooter...

& I must admit, droolcicles on your face are most is that second to last sideways glance piccy of you in the mastiffmobile...My mom is drooling over your heaps of jowls!

Love & Licks,

ps..stay inside & work on your napping while the big storm comes!

The Thundering Herd said...

Way to keep the estate safe from a snow blower, PeeWee.

Droolcicles? Wow.

Gus said...

Ohhh Yeah! Stay snug and warm, and have a great time.


Sam said...

PeeWee means business! He wants that thing gone, and he wants it gone NOW!!

Hope you guys have fun when the whitey stuff finally comes to Master Chew Sits.

Niamh said...

Well Mango, when your pee wee brother barked on the video, my goofy brother barked too. Then he ran to the window and growled! They are both such doofuses that I can't stand it.

I like your new porch and tree. Your estate looks wonderful. Do be careful about meeting your flat self. I am sure that it will warp the space-time continuum in some strange and yet to be determined way. Enjoy the snow.

Your friend,

misskyliem said...

Are you ready?!?! I'm getting so excited! (So much so that I ran zoomies around with Mommy and wacked my head into the wall! BOL) I keep going to the window to check but I still don't see any... Any flakes at your Estate yet? I went and got a couple of small tokens of Christmas Cheer for you and PeeWee since you are my bestest Master Chew Sits furiends. Mommy says that I'm not old enough to meet the Relentlessly Huge, but maybe she can stop by some time to give them too you, and you can slobber all over her so when she gets home I can get a good sniff!! I'm sure she won't mind... BOL


River said...

We are so jealous of the snow! But take lots of pictures so my mom can enjoy them lol. Be careful on those slippery surfaces.

love & wags,

Frankie Furter said...

I'm going to have 87 billion snow pics tomorrow too.
I like your porch tree. Sparklie.
I think that thingy eats snow. I don't think it is a toy for either of you. I'm just sayin'.

Wild Dingo said...

Mango Man! I'm so jeaslous of your Mom's car. I mean, I have a stoooopid mini cooper. and while I loved it when i had maggie, i now have 2 huge (but not relentlessly huge) dogs and they hate the mini too....they always cry when they go in it and all the windows have loki nose prints, sometimes i can't see out of them. to make it worse, it's a convertible so it's even smaller "window-wise"... if we weren't moving, boy oh boy would that thing be GONE!

PeeEsswoo:droolcicles are hot.

Stella and Gunther said...

Mango, I feel your pain my friend. Gunther barks at the broom and every other object around the house and yard. It's quite embarrassing. I can only imagine how he'd react if he saw a snow blower.

We heard about the storm comin your way. Stay safe our friends!!


Ms. ~K said...

Wroooo wroooo! Not sure why, but we're barking with you!!!
What are we barking at???
Oh it doesn't matter...
Wrooo wroooo!
Can't wait to see the snow pictures! Remember, don't eat the yellow snow!
Licks and sniffs,

Samantha said...

Hey Mango! We are hearing from a lot of northeastern doggies that they can expect a relentlessly huge amount of snow heheeh! I hope you get as much as you want and that Peewee doesn't decide to bark at it. Sounds like you are going to get a large dump ho ho ho! Loves you xo
Hugs - Sammie

The OP Pack said...

JEALOUS JEALOUS JEALOUS - that's what we are - there is snow everywhere but here. Maybe next week - yeah yeah yeah they say that all the time.

Hey, maybe it is the red of the snow shovel that freaks out PeeWee. Phantom rarely barks but if he sees someone in a red shirt or red hat, he lets out huge barks.

Does Pee Wee ever use the stairs on that deck?

Woos, the OP Pack

wally said...


I have been using the storm all day and now it seems to be moving to your place. It cannot leave a moment too soon. I do love a nice blanket of the stuff, especially for the eating, but now it is up to my chin which makes using the toilet outside most undignified.

wally t.

Nellie and Calvert said...


The storm is really hitting NY badly. It takes our human FER-EVER to get ready to take us out, so we can understand how hard it is to stay still while they are getting dressed.

We're loving your droolcicles!


PeeS: we've really missed you and your posts, can't wait to catch-up.

Stella said...

Oh, this will be so good for you east coast pups! You will enjoy every inch of this, and quite honestly, we are a little jealous you are getting so much!

I just had white space on my comments where your movies were sposed to be? Maybe they are off in the snow somewhere.


1000 Goldens said...

I love this post! Mango is so sweet to put the smackdown on PeeWee so Momma can put on her outdoor suit :)

Mango, I would not want to run into my flat self either. It's wrong on so many levels. You were very brave to do the ROTE with the flat one...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Your mom got a very interesting present!
I had a good laugh watching Dexter barking at it!
I will be waiting for your snowy pictures... under my blankets!
Kisses and hugs

The tree in the porch looks pawesome!

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

Khan your momma print out my pikh to keep woo warm?

PeeEssWoo: My word is CATING!!!

kissa-bull said...

your droolicles are so pawsome!!!!!
please take lots of pix and enjoy it for us here in houston,we hardly ever get snow. oh , oh , oh and do the most pawsome trick of turning the white stuff yellow. we've been dying to try that
woof woof and waggles
the houston pittie pack

Marjie said...

I was required to help my human brother drive his truck, because our mastiff mobile had dead battery syndrome when we tried to get our tree. I will make Momma put up my pictures soon. We did not get the big snow. I hope you do not get so much that Pee Wee gets lost.


Puglette said...

i am glad you are well supplied for the incoming blizzard! and about meeting your flat self, all will be fine, spock met himself and discussed this problem and explained it logically. ;o)

Two Country Poodles said...

We seriously think you should try to get a channel on tv for your movies...they are pawtastic! Can't wait to see you in the big snow.

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo

Aniemother said...

We sure hope you don't loose power. WE don't want you freezing. I'm also realising that your big and impressive self can handle a whole lot more snow before having to swim than I can, so I guess you're in no immediate danger of drowning.


Maggie and Mitch said...

We bet your mom will be getting a lot of use out of her power shovel today, Mango unless the winds cleared the deck for her! We FINALLY got some of the white stuff too and we can't wait to go outside and check it out!
Your droolcicle is awesome!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

JD and Max said...

Hi Mango and Dexter - we've had snow here and we think it's great! And we have to say we think Dexter was remarkable at guarding the estate - most enthusiastic! Oh, and we loved your droolcicles Mango - pawsome stuff! We hope you don't loose power as we're dying to see more snow photos. Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

elbouwii said...

whahaha love the reaction of peewee ;D

oh your special card is in the mail :D

Mack said...

That PeeWee has springs in his butt (That's what mom says about me).

I hope you guys stayed really warm last night.

And I kinda think that electric snow mover thingy looks a bit scary...


You guys have cabin fever already! It's gonna be a long winter.

Peewee did go into nutsville.. geesh. Tula has pills she can lend u. I love your porch tree. Looks great. oh christmas pee i mean tree.

ps my mom had the decency to keep me 3d not flat.

achieve1dream said...

Can't wait to see the snow. Wow Dex is a good guard dog, but you need to teach him what to guard against!


Ina in Alaska said...

We need a power shovel too!! Jeter got all worked up during the intruder alert too!

We love your beautiful porch, tree and lights in all the windows of the manor. LOVELY!!!

Happy Holidays, our mom is leaving tonight for NJ to visit her momma in the hospital for the holidays and we are going to our favorite dog camp! xoxo

Toby, Ginger and Jeter (as dictated to their mom, Ina)

dewdana said...

I see from the weather you are getting lots of snow! Very Lucky!
Man Pee Wee was totally cracker dog! Moose did that when I unpacked my leaf blower,right out of the box, not plugged in or turned on or anything, total ferocious crackerdog! Maybe something about blowers in general they don't like.
Freaky about you and flat mango... the mango mobile must be the nexus of the universe!
Hope to see fun in the snow on your next post!
p.s. the porch is beautiful with the tree! Tell momma to take some pics of it all covered in snow in the daytime.

Laura, Lance, and Vito said...

ahh little Dex is so brave to defend you guys like that! I love how Mango keeps trying to play with him :)

hero said...

PeeWee is sure jumpy with the vid... BOL. The power shovel does come in handy after the snow storm I guess... love those Mango droolsicles!

Licks, hero

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

Oh my...Mango very round and Mango very flat meeting in the same proximity>?? Like two parallel universes clashing? Does that a black hole make??? Hmm...wonder what would happen if I ever met my evil twin, know...the selfish one who doesn't do good to benefit humanity? I'm wonderin' about the size of her cabboose...

As for Peewee and the snow thrower thingie? DOES look like a vacuum cleaner...DAAAAAA! And I attack those. Actually, I also attack snow shovels with my delicate jaws making it impossible for a hooman to shovel. Mumsie threatened to kick me, but just gave up on the snow removal instead. A wise choice on her part.

Kisses dear dogs...we got a half a foot of snow...we melted all over the floor like three times yesterday! It rocked.


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

You 2 have so much fun.. We can't wait to see the Big snow photo's..
Mango you look so handsome in the Mastiff mobile..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Joe Stains said...

Dexter lost his little mind didn't he?? I sure hope your Mom was able to use that thing and that Dexter didn't destroy it. We hope you guys have not lost your electricity, update us soon!

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

Droosicles? Dude. You are Beyond Awesome! And I am Very Concerned about the round Mango and the flat Mango existing in the same Mangomobile. I think if you had touched it, the universe would have exploded. So thank you for saving us all from cataclysm. (And Mom appreciated the Kirk reference, as she's got a bit of a thing for him when he was like 500 years younger than he is now...)

*kissey face*

Dory and the Mama said...

So much FUN!!!! The from the bitey faces in the first movie to the very last stately pictures...what an awesome RH post!! Mama and I are still giggling (with you...not AT you of course!!)


ocmist said...

My goodness... Yellow snow, Mango with lipstick, and droolsicles, I about had to hide the pup's eyes on THIS one!

The snowblower is a really NICE gift... to bad it drives PeeWee cracker dog. Wonder if he will ever get used to it, or will end up hating it like we hate the noisy sucking machine!!! OC & the CCC
