Old Movies

I was browsing around on our computer and found a bunch of old movies in, of all places, the iTunes folder. I am not sure how they got there and I cannot figure out how to convert them from the MPG to a format that I can use with my iMovie, so I am just going to post them in their raw format.

I sure hope that you can watch them all. Sometimes Blogger is most uncooperative and says movies are unavailable even when I know they are there! Grrrrr...

These movies were all taken the week I arrived at the Mango Estate. I was only ten weeks old and very small. It was summertime and seriously hot. As you can see, our back yard was kind of a mess. We have done a lot of landscaping since then. The movie quality is not so good as momma used a disposable camera not having gone all bloggy yet.

Apologies to my pals without the high speed internets.

This first movie is mostly my Grandpa Angus. He was old and did not enjoy the hot weather very much. I am in it too and I speak!

Here I am working on my vocalizations. You can hear Angus cheering me on in the background.

Angus just relaxing.

Me and Beautiful Raja cooling off on the kitchen floor. It is very dark and you can hardly see me. I don't know why the dish washy machine is open. Raja did not always enjoy my company, but I did everything I could to be close to her.

Hanging out with Angus and Raja. She was HUGE and blond and beautiful. Sigh.

Just exploring my new home.

Special close-up of my beautiful Raja who was with us for such a short time.

And finally, Angus, who had a good long life and we miss him a lot.

Mango man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Just to make our retrospective complete, here is a picture of Momma and Master's little Pi whom I never met but Angus told me she was his one true love.

I can see why grampa Angus loved Pi. A very nice review of life at your estate over the years. Perfect time of the year for that type of thingy. I'm just sayin'.

Marjie said...

We mastiffs are the most adorable and tiny of puppies. I am sure that Angus and Raja thought you were wonderful, but had to keep you in your place.


Eric said...

Awww. Mini Mango, how cute. And Grandpa Angus what a perfect teddy bear.Had Mom drooling. No wonder DOH got a feltie mini-me of him from Moma Lamb. Look after him Mango.

Wiry love and kisses Eric xxx

Happy New Year to you and your legged, have a wagging one.

Me and mommy loved sitting and watching all the old movies so thanks very much for sharing them with us and letting us see the other doggies that have since gone to the bridge.

ScrapsofMe said...

My Heart is ravisht with delight,
when thee I think upon;
All Grief and Sorrow takes the flight,
and speedily is gone;
The bright resemblance of thy Face,
so fills this, Heart of mine;
That Force nor Fate can me displease,
for Old long syne.

Sophie Brador said...

Oh Mango, What beautiful videos of you and your foredogs. They are all, almost, as fabulous as you your very own self are.

Being especially enamoured with puppies, I am sort of in love with your puppy pics.


Stella said...

I agree with Dennis (probably just this one time) that the big dogs weren't a bit interested in mini you, even though you were cuter than cute.

Can we know why Raja lived such a short life. He was such a beautiful big dog!


kissa-bull said...

wow raja was a beauty !!! and oh my dog the mini mango was so adorabull mommish was all giggling like she does when she really loves something

Chester said...

Thanks for sharin' mini Mango videos with us. He sure had a deep voice at even a young age.

All nice dawgy friends who I'm sure were a blessin' to their 2 leggers.

Now that you're mature I'm sure you always on your best behavior, right? BOL!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane Mango. Hard to believe you were ever that small! What a cutie patootie.

Wild Dingo said...

Mango Man! When did you learn to meditate? You obviously honed that skill. You were most energetic with much yang as a pup. It must have taken years of yin practice. years.

Mango Man! Oh Yeah!

Schwang said...

Old videos are the best; they capture so much more than photos. And I can't believe Mango was once so mini!

Deefor said...

Nice movies. You were really a cutie and it was nice to see all the other doggies. My mom met a mastiff today in Seattle. He was just laying around in the playground and let all the kids pet him. (She knew right away he was a Mango dog) Very beautiful and drooly.

Sam said...

My slow internet doesn't always let me watch videos but I sure am glad it allowed me to watch these. What great sentimental stuff here!

Noah the Airedale said...

Awww we're all a bit teary after that post. Mango, your Grandpa Angus, Beautiful Raja and Pi were all wonderful dogs (especially Angus!!! lol).
Thanks so much for sharing the videos.

Noah x
ps. your mama should get another airedale.

Maggie and Mitch said...

We loved your movies, Mango! You were the cutest little pup! Grandpa Angus sounds like he was quite the talker too - just like me only his voice is much deeper! Thank you for sharing!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mack said...

Those are some super videos Mangoman! And you actually used to be small??

And Raja was one big beautiful gal.

Your grandpa was a handsome fellow too

Fenway said...

Wonderful memories, Mango!
I still marvel at your magnificent came as a fully grown Fenway!

All the best for the New Year and I hope your Christmas was as merry as can be.

Your pal,

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

We can't watch the movies, but we can see the stills - we can hardly believe you were ever that small - you surely grew!!

Rosie said...

Mango you were so cute when you were tiny (you are handsome now). It sure looks like the Mango Estate had a long lineage of dogs that lived there - maybe a doggie tree is in order so no one is ever forgotten.

Moco said...

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. It is plain to see that you and Pee-Wee come from a long line of diginities on the Estate of Master and TDOH.

houndstooth said...

What a cool trip down memory lane! You were a cute puppy, Mango Man!


Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Mango, well we always thought you must have been a beautiful baby and now we have proof!
We loved your post - especially nice at this time of year to reflect on all the great dogs in your family's life.
How lucky our humans have been to have been loved by so many great dogs!
Of course we now realise your humans must be as old as ours......
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xxx

BowWowie Mango!! You were once a little dog too. Amazing!

The OP Pack said...

Khyra told us not to miss this post and we are so glad we didn't. What great videos to have - Mom so wishes she had more of Dakota. You were and still are so handsome. And we loved seeing Raja and Angus too. That was quite the sparkly collar you wore back then.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

ocmist said...

Little Pi was just adorable! Beagle eyes are as beautiful as corgi eyes, Mom says. It was also great to "meet" Angus. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth 10,000!

We have a hard time believing that little pup was actually YOU! You certainly GREW UP!!!!

Raja, was a very beautiful girl and we are glad that you got a chance to have her in your life, even if for a very short time. OC

ocmist said...

OH, we forgot to mention that you sure had a BIG voice for such a young pup... although, Pip is getting a pretty big voice too, lately.

Biggie-Z said...

wow, it is cool to see all those old movies. You sure moved fast as a little one! You could give PeeWee a run for his money! Raja is so beautiful. I love big older women.
