A Present from OC and More Dumb Box Tricks

Alert readers will recall that OC's Grammy painted a portrait of my large and handsome self and entered it in a contest and totally won!

Then she was kind enough to mail it to me! I wanted to look at it, but Momma confiscated it and said that she would take it to a frame up store to put some Mango proof glass on it.

I wasn't bothered because the package also contained some actual fluff from OC herself.

Well, I was very interested.

It smelled most yummerlishous

Corgi fluff!

Even PeeWee liked it.

Now for my trick!

I protested the arrival of the stupid box and refused to come in.

But the promise of cheese was too much for my large and always hungry self to resist.

Momma left her coat on because she was wearing the exact same outfit as in the last movie. It's not like she never changes her clothes, but this is one of her dog sweaters that is amenable to slobbers.

I wish we wouldn't practice on the slippery floor.

Please ignore momma accidentally pointing to the box in the beginning. Sometimes she gets confused.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

So, are we going to get to see the Mango portrait? I bet you look so very handsome. Oh Dakota says she lubs the labradork's big tongue at the top of your bloggie.

dewdana said...

Nice work RH! We have not practiced for a week or two. I thought I needed a bigger box but maybe I can just make it shorter so Moose can step over both sides... Hmmm... Something to think about.
We are most impressed!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Corgi fluff and trying to get in a box that is way to small. What is mom thinking?
TexASS that is cute. That is exactly what uncle Doug calls it..

Jake of Florida said...

OK, we wanted to watch the video -- but at that very first Mango murmur, we started to bark so loudly that Mom made us turn it off.

You obviously made an impression on us that is commensurate with your relentlessly hooge self. We've listened to other barks on other videos -- but haven't gotten so intrigued.

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

(Your card arrived today and we were also awed by the handsomness of your profile. Thank you!)

Gus said...

Yea Mango Man....we bet you could also train your mom to get into the box, and she would still give you clicks and treats, because you are so magnificent.

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh Mango, we were worried you were trying to eat OC - wll we guess it was just fluff.
You are a very famous doggie to have your portrait done.
Tell your mom we dont notice what she is wearing but that our mum has dog clothes in the house!!!
Apparently these are ones that are covered in drool and hair.
We warned you before about that box - we reckon your mom is going to put you in the post.
Martha & Bailey xx

SGR said...

Woof! Oh! my ... you trying to be in the box is too Funny. Why can't mom just get a new n bigger box. Check out OC site try to look for your portrait but did not see it ... hope you'll post it. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Niamh said...


I think your momma is a bit obsessed with stuffing your Relentlessly Huge self in a box. Just what is she up to?? I can't wait to see your handsome portrait.

Your friend,

Frankie Furter said...

Gee Mango, what was your momma thinking???? That is like trying to put an elephant in a shoe box. Tell her to get you a Banana Box already.
Heck of a try though with what you had to work with.

The OP Pack said...

You are doing quite well with the box. How long before you get shipped to MFT?

We can't wait to see your painting.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

houndstooth said...

Ooooooo! I love fluff! You're a lucky dog!

Are we going to get to see the portrait?


1000 Goldens said...

Mango, your training slobbers are nearly as impressive as your Mastiff in a Box trick :)

Chester said...

Come on Mango Mom! That box isn't big enough for Mango's slobbers-let alone The Relentlessly Huge himself.

Chester ;0=)

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

Dear Auntie Momma,

I notice that you got ur furs trimmed again in that 'dorable classic bob that looks pawsitively perfect on ya...do ya think I could wear that swingy style??? I just don't know if it might swing right into my beardie...could be a small issue.

I did want to question what you're going to do with Mango if ya ever get him completely in that box. I was thinking you might wanna teach him to SWALLOW. I mean it could help a lot with the suds....

Just wait till the Darling swallows and click and treat cheese...Yeppers...just solved tons of your sweater issues...(Lacie smiles thinking how thoughtful she is...it improves her karma...)

I bet the lady in the petstore was like totally impressed when you correctly identified the small- bottomed Lakie...I could just hear ya..."Yes, I am soooo familiar with the breed...my Mastiff is totally in love with one in Pencil VAIN E A....she has a very small bottom too...


Your niece,


Mack and Sally Ann said...

Your great in the box. Would you ask your Mommy when she has time, if she could help my Mommy with some photoshop stuff. I want to have a Welsh dog party, but Mommy just doesn't know what to do. I just loved seeing and reading about all your adventures in Africa and such.
Sally Ann

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

Congrats on the win and the getting the box. I haven't gotten a box in the mail yet but think one is on the way.
Don't worry about your mom, most moms get confused most of the time.

Stella said...

Hey Mango,

I tried to watch your box movie, but it wouldn't work for me. I hate to miss anything, especially if you are being mailed somewhere, but thats life.

Your Christmas card came today and it is beautiful, you and PeeWee look just great playing in the snow.

You got snow now?


The Army of Four said...

I don't think I'd be too sure about that box thing either!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Everyone has a price. And as far as prices go, you could do worse than cheese.

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Bambi is not sure about that box thing too!!!
Love you Mango and Dexter,
Bambi nad Fern

Benny and Lily said...

Oh Mango you are hysterical. Those darn humans always get us with the cheese.
Benny & Lily

Lorenza said...

I am sure you are going to place your painting on a very special spot!
Good job with that "boxing the Mango trick"!
Kisses and hugs

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

I;m still mystified by this whole box thing. Where is she planning on sending you?!?

*kissey face*

Randi said...

Awww Mango! Do you think you could get yourself in a box the size that would actually fit you...? Like a refridgerator box??? I bet that would be worth lots more treats!!

Love & Licks,

ps..I think your mamma is always most stylish in her Mango proof attire!

River said...

No wonder the floor is slippery! Look at that slobber! We can't wait to see your portrait!

love & wags,

Sam said...

Mango, I like how you offer mom a sit and a give paw at the beginning. You are obviously trying to outsmart her!!

Corgi fluff sounds quite interesting. A unique thing to receive in the mail, that's for sure!

ScrapsofMe said...

Next time have yer Mom splain the box trick to us non-dancing non-agilities doglets. I don't get why the box is so....well....small? Especially for your RH self. If you managed to get all 4 feeties in there at the same time, you'd teeter over and go boom. And why would she want to box you up in the firstest place? Unless it's to control where the droolies go? Or maybe she is gonna wrap the boxie after you gets in it and have you jump OUT of the boxie at one of Lacie's wild parties. Wearing like one of those chip-n-dale guy thongs. Maybe you are going to be a pressie under the Christmas tree? Can she put some stick tape on the bottom of the boxie so it won't go boot scootin' across the slippy floor? Maybe she just has an abundance of leftover cheese from Thanksgiving and this is a fun way for her to get rid of it. Inquiring minds want to know...what's with the box?

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh no hahahaha your mamma didnt slip did she mate? There was an awful lot of drool hanging from your mouth that we suspect landed on the floor.


Wild Dingo said...

Dude, your mom needs like a relentlessly huge box. Like how is someone as handsome as you supposed to fit in a box so small?

And by now you should be questioning why she wants to put you in a box. Is she planning on mailing you somewhere? Perhaps to someone with pantyloons who lives in Pawselvania?

elbouwii said...

Big mastiff need bigger box!!!!
i hope that Sanne doesnt do that to me to

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

We think you really are a very good sport, Mango!

MAX said...

Mango, do you realise that when you are finally 'boxed' you might be sent to Africa?...Oh, so she didn't tell you! But it seems like it is going to take forever...because you still have to learn how to sit still with a lid on your head! Finally she'll teach you to flip your lid...Ooooo, can't wait!!!

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

does your mom have a depth perception problem?? no way are you fitting in that box. we loved the corgi floof video. we loved how Dexter peaks in on the action at the end. hehehe, cute curious dexter always wants to be in the know!

achieve1dream said...

Hehehehehe you were really confuzzling your mom there weren't you?


Fenway said...

I bet that bit of fluff confused you...smells like dog, but where's the dog?

Hmmmm. I bet that got you a little nervous and you took it out on the box!

Your pal,

Ina in Alaska said...

Just enjoyed this post and the Labradorks in the Snow post. Had internet "issues" that I finally resolved. GREAT VIDEOS!! Mango Man is just AWESOME!!!! And thank you for your very kind comments on my blog. I have saved Mango/Dexter in our Favorites!!! Many hugs!! Toby, Ginger and Jeter (as dictated to their Mom)

Rosie said...

Mango - The fluff reminded me of a cats hairball - please do not eat -yuck. The box trick is a little concerning I hope your mom does not want you to do some contortionist trick or something to squeeze you in there. She has to understand that The RH does not bend.

Ludo van Doggy said...

You looked pretty clever there Mango! I hope you were proud.
I think you need a bigger box though.
~lickies, Ludo

Kari in WeHo said...

mmm cheese is hard to resist!

Stella and Gunther said...

We can't wait to see the Mango painting! It's prolly really big, right?

Stella & Gunther

Life With Dogs said...

Mastiff in a box sounds kind of familiar, not sure why...

TwoSpecialWires said...

Do you think they might be leaning towards wrapping you up with pretty paper and a bow and putting you under the Christmas tree? You'd make a lovely present.

Thanks for the encouragement about "Big Dogs". We're working on it. We really WANT to feel safe and confident around them. And we're making some progress....

Happy Howlydays
Jake and Fergs xxoo

Dory and the Mama said...

.....I think you need a bigger box Mango


Sofie Amalie said...

Oh yes Mango - you need to tell your momma you need a bigger box! lookin' good though... :o))

Maggie and Mitch said...

Gee, that box is kinda small for you, isn't it, Mango?
We can't wait to see your portrait!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Ms. ~K said...

I've heard of Jack in the Box, but Mango in the Box? Comes w/ a side of slobber, huh?

Agatha and Archie said...

OMG DID PL2 TELL HER ABOUT THIS?? She had us doing this for awhile into the box only she threw TONS of cookies into it and we got a little carried away and then I took the box and was throwing it aroud the room and then Archie took the other end and then we ripped the box and that was that. And when we heard her click?? I sat down becasue i thought maybe there was something in this for me!HAR HAR!!! How about a BIGGER box ? just a thought...I mean how will you fold your legs up?? Love A+A

Biggie-Z said...

Hm. I'm a little suspicious. Why is she teaching you to go in the box? Is she going to mail you somewhere?

You are right to be wary of the box. Never more than 3 paws at a time. One paw stays on the slippery floor.

My Momma needs a new trick with me. She has been lazy and hasn't taught me anything new in a year.

Two Country Poodles said...

Oh Mango Man...I am so thrilled with your abilities! I just love watching your tricks!!!

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo

ocmist said...

Oh, Mango... such sweet kisses you gave my fluff! Gives me shivers, big guy! I should have had Mom put in a couple of my favorite jerky strips for you, but she was so late in getting a mailer figured out that she forgot to add treats for you and Dex... BAD Mom!

Hope you like your picture when you see it! Your short-legged friend, OC
