Happy Holidays from Mango (OK, and PeeWee too)

Alright, let's just get this out of the way right up front because sometimes the humans are so simple minded in their amusements that it is almost too much to bear.

As proof, I give you this movie which is filled with the DOH cackling like a demented harpy whilst trying to make us do stupid things just for one lousy cookie.

How I suffer...

To cleanse your viewing palate from that painful video, here is my happy holiday movie.

Speaking of suffering, one of Momma's creepy snowman persons appeared in the yard this morning.

I set to work with face removal.

Then she got the bright idea that somehow I wouldn't notice that there was a dumb hat on my large and not so easily fooled head if I was outside. Seriously. How dumb does she think I am?

Can it get much worse? My extra special Mango holiday cape is on the snowball and I think this is supposed to be some sort of festive making photo (I hope my cape goes in the washy machine before it goes back on me because I totally pee'd about 900 times on that snowball).

You know, sitting in snow might be OK for PeeWee, but some of us still have our nards. Hello!

Typical suck up photo of the labradork.

I think this is plenty festive, don't you? Now a nice red collar is the kind of party wear that I can get in to for sure.

This is Mango the Relentlessly Huge (and PeeWee) officially wishing you a safe and happy holiday.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Have a happy Christmas if the old guy remembers to show up at your house. We're beginning to wonder if Santa even exists...

Love, Dozer, Dottie and Cooper

Sam said...

Thank you, Mango and Dexter, hope you have happy holiday too!

Sorry about having to sit in the snow. I hope they didn't get too cold. If you know what I mean.

Gus said...

Happy Christmas guys.

Great fun watching the videos, but Mango, please let your Mom keep her fingers - they might come in handy when she is preparing your dinner.

Wishes to you and the family for a Happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

Happy Howlidays Mango! I love your sexy snowy X-mas photos!! I went through something similar today minus the snow, and my facial expression was very similar to yours. Can you believe it? An Airedale with a Mastiff facial expression??

I would like to send you a X-mas card via e-mail, do you think you can give me your e-mail address? My e-mail is

Merry X-mas to you and your PeeWee's!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Moose said...

I see you took out your frustration on DOH's paw when you took that Cookie, good job. I do that sometimes. Here is the thing though, you gotta keep that in check on Christmas eve or Santa might put you on the naughty list. I am for sure there myself after trying to steal a pizza today.
Momma enjoyed your merry making videos and thinks you are both terribly handsome in your party wear!
Happy holidays!

Maggie and Mitch said...

Merry Christmas to all of you!

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

Your videos had Mom cracking up - especially when you almost took your Mom's hand off getting that cookie. (I think she deserved that, though, for making you do, uh, what was it that she was trying to get you to do?!?)

Merry Christmas, guys!!!

*kissey face*

houndstooth said...

Mango and Dexter,

After watching that first video, I have to wonder if your mom is quite right in the head? She wanted you to do all that for one measly cookie? I wouldn't have done it, either!

Merry Christmas to you!


Cinnamon and her mum said...

Hi Mango and Dexter,

I don't know what it is like to be sitting in the snow, as I have never seen the snow. But, I want to try making a snowman if there is a chance.

Have a Happy Christmas!!


Benny and Lily said...

Mango good job trying to eat that skinny snowman. Are you the cape crusader? BOL

ocmist said...

Your red collar is quite festive looking on you, you big hunk of manly beauty. OC

Please be careful that you don't sit to long in one place because you don't want a couple of "snow-balls" do you?! BG

Do you believe that Mom actually said, "Awwwww" when she saw Dexter's pic! OC

Rosie said...

BOL - the red collar is just perfect - shows your festive spirit without looking like a dork.
Love it!
