Space Invader, Snow, and Dancing with the Beastie

Yesterday we had a BIG STORM! With snow and everything. But by the time momma got home from the work place it was pouring rain, pitch dark and thundering and lightening. Nevertheless, she insisted on making one of her creepy snow man things.

"Oh Mango, the snow is just perfect to make a snowman. And you have been cooped up all day. We need to go out and have FUN!" What a nut job.

I showed her what I thought of her creation...

Only good thing about rain is that I get to wear my super Mango cape inside.

That stupid PeeWee is continuing his quest to invade my Mango Spaces!

Here I am keeping Momma company whilst she revives her self from her snowman making exertions and who should come sneaking up on us, but the labradork himself.

I know he is there, but try to ignore it and hope that he will go away. Maybe I need an electric fence.

Is he still there?

Oh man! Like some slithering creature from the bowls of the ocean he utilizes the hardwood floors to creep ever closer.

Are you kidding me? Get your stinky labrafoot out of my nose! Good God! What have you been walking in?

I retreat to the dog cave to where the air is fresh and clean and smells most wonderfully of... ME! Only to be pursued.

Now the Mango only has so many "get up, get down's" in him for one day, so once I settle my large and not easily moved self it requires serious motivation to rise up.

Arg! I think this is motivation enough.

Phew! Made it to the bed! But he is STILL TOUCHING ME! Oh help!

Here is what that alleged snowman person looked like in the morning. Pathetic.

And of course simple minded momma provided herself with entertainments by throwing snowballs at us.

No comment.

Alert readers will recall that the Beastie and I performed in the Nutcracker last year right here in beautiful Boston Master Chew Sits (well, I performed and she created mayhem, typical). This year, I thought perhaps something a bit more challenging given how svelte I am after my endless diet. I must say that the Beastie managed to squeeze into her outfit quite well and really shake that booty! Watch it here.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Kari in WeHo said...

Did your mom happen to make snow balls out of her snowman?

Samantha said...

Wow Mango! You must have been seriously motivated to bust those moves with Lacie - especially when it was so hard to get out from under Peewee that much in one day! Loved that movie! And your mom's snowman is great and takes a lot of effort! Aren't you glad she got you out to supervise ho ho??? You look properly pooped later - very nice of you to keep mama company - and I hate to say it, but Dexter's looking awfully cute (but you're the cutest!)...
Hugs xo

She's furry light on her paws - I mean given the size of her butt -

Did The Labradork's paws smell like Fritos?


Rufus and Indie said...

I can't stop laughing: your video is so funny, Mango!
I have to say Dexter's last pic is pawsome!!!!

Ina in Alaska said...

.... like a creature from the bowels of the ocean.... so funny, Mango Man!! Your meditations are priceless!

Frankie Furter said...

Love the Mango Cape!! I sometimes wear my play mat that way.
Hey buddy... you made that snow thingy kind of "YELLOW". Nice shootin' Tex.

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Mango, it is hard having younger siblings. I have Sally Ann, so I know what you go through. I love her, but I mean sometimes, I just need me time.

houndstooth said...

Mango, you ARE a gifted dancer! That is one awesome dance routine! I am totally impressed!


The OP Pack said...

Oh Mango, you are worried about Dexter's foot in your nose - we think we saw your posterior touch Lacie's posterior in that dance - how could you?

Why don't we ever get snow like that!!!

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

wally said...

Twinkietinydog said...

Let me think...So you made yellow snow in the evening, and the next day you were bombarded by yellow snow balls? BOL Got to go now, want to watch the video.
Oh, if you remember the comment on our horse's picture, I agree! He looks like a camel in that shot.

BRUTUS said...

Gosh, Mango-
Impressive video. No wonder you are so sedate otherwise.... Must take you all year to recover from that dancing workout!
We saw a Mango today at our show. WIll try to get a photo of him & his kind for you tomorrow. Mom was so wound up about me & what I was doing today, she could barely put two thoughts in a row!

Brutus the Frenchie

Gus said...

Mango Man...stunning choreography! And Splits at the end. Now, don't tell me that wasn't uncomfortable.


Stella said...

You know what, PeeWee is getting to be a very handsome guy. Soon he will have all the femmes after him and he won't have any time for you at all. So you won't have to put up with him for too much longer. Feel better, Mango?


1000 Goldens said...

Your Momma's snow creature is really quite impressive. My humans also share the same demented view, that throwing snowballs for us to catch is somehow amusing. We must be patient with them Mango. We're all they have...

hero said...

Mango, I think your warm bucket of pee sort of melted mom's snowman into a lump of ice. I see PeeWee is in the spirit of sharing already with his constant invasion of your mango space. Nice slick move you got there.

Licks, hero

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

Okaaaaaaaaay!!! First of all, if indeed we did bump derrieres in the video, it's not like I'm contagious, is it??

Yes, dear...I imagine those splits were a little more uncomfortable for you than me...

As for the snowman...well, I actually think I've found a male I DON'T wanna date...I mean he's um well...sorta melted or peed on or somethin'..

Gotta go and watch the Steelers...

The better win...sheesch...

Kisses and I totally ADORE OUR DANCE!!!

There really seems to be a spark of electricity between us, doesn't it Darling...

Laciecakes.... XXOO

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Liked the pictures of you two in the snow! Poor Mango can't get a minute to himself. Dexter really likes Mango and wants to be close!!!
Poor Dexter is # 2.
Wait Dexter your time will come.
Bambi sends you both wet kisses
I send lots of hugs, Fern

Benny and Lily said...

Oh are funny. Any reason you decided to eat the snowman? BOL
Benny & Lily

Peanut said...

We liked your mama's snowman

Anonymous said...

Hey Mango...Pee Wee annoys you just as much as Angel (my little sister) annoys me!! You're much better behaved, though, cuz I growl and nip at her when she gets too close to my mommy and I'm trying to get her cuddles.

yer pal

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
You mom made an interesting Snowman!
My mom has the same reaction when I put my paw that close to her! Hmmm...
I see how svelte you are in that video!
Good moves!
Kisses and hugs

Ms. ~K said...

That's some real Doggie Dirty Dancing!!! Look out Patrick Swayze, here comes Mango!

MAX said...

So "Mango Melted the Man!"? How could you Mate?...your mom must have spent hours creating it - just for you to lift a leg!

Wild Dingo said...

Mango Man! NICE SPLITS in that vid!

only thing to make that vid performance better would be the suds machine...sigh. guess you weren't too excited about all that dancing. no suds for beastie. Hmfph!

that look on your face in your bed makes me want to come over and boot Dex in his labrabutt! sigh. it's just not right. labradorks are so annoying sometimes!
we would never be that annyoying. we sould love you just as you are and never annoy you. come live with us...oh wait, better yet, we'll come live with you. Just tell mom to not leave her shoes around... booowhahaah!
wild dingo

SGR said...

Woof! FUN FUN time!!!! LOL on the snowman ... totally you Mango. Just want to wish you and your family Happy Holidays. I just posted my last post for the year. We are going on a long Holiday break. Lots of Golden Holiday Woofs, Sugar

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

holy crap that video was something else--you've got all the moves

achieve1dream said...

That is the best dancing video I've ever seen!!!!! You have some great moves Mango. Lacie was . . . er . . .

Anyway, I like to catch snowballs that mom throws to me. It's lots of fun.


Tucker said...

I love it that you peed on your momma's snow man!

woof - Tucker

Mango Momma,
I have a question I'm hoping you can help with. Since all the snow we got was followed by rain making icy snow Tucker keeps scraping his feet when he runs in the back yard. Our solution is going to have to be to snowblow the back yard for him, but he just loves running in the snow. Do Mango or Dexter ever have this problem? I'm considering boots for him but he hates having his feet touched. Any advice would be great! Thanks, Tucker's Momma

Deetz said...

Happy Holidays to you and your family! It looks like Dexter has sure taken a liking to you, which is very easy to do.
That was a pretty pathetic snowman, but don't tell your momma I said that okay, cuz I like your momma. hehe

Maggie and Mitch said...

Great dance moves, Mango! You're very light on your feet for a big guy!
You have more snow than we do! We don't think this is fAire!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Sam said...

Haha I love all of your snow pictures. And, I have a feeling that Marge would have a similar reaction to a snowman. Maybe after barking and growling at it first.

Sophie Brador said...

Mango, We got that awesome snow storm too, but didn't have to put up with any of that crappy rain afterward. I loooove the snow. Graham is a pansy ass and hates it. You know what you need? You need a soaker coat. It's perfect for after a rain storm. Of course you might need a XXXL to cover your massively muscled bod. Not that XXX in the L soaker coat.


P.S. I am not flirting. Much.

Sierra Rose said...

Mango! Nice dancin', work those moves pals!
Well....sorry, but I think Dexter is pretty cute trying to hang out with you.

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose and mom

Ludo van Doggy said...

I think Momma's snowman looks like a melted Abraham lincolm. You knows, the man on the monies.
~lickies, Ludo

Marjie said...

My momma cannot go out in the snow or elsewhere due to something called herniated disc things, and she does not walk well. But I have boys to play with. They make snowballs for me, because I like to catch them. And they make snowman persons, but we have not had enough snow to make some yet. I think they should just spend their time on snowballs for Thor and skip the snowman persons, unless those will keep away the deers so Momma will not yell about them eating her shrubs. What is the big deal about green things anyway? Humans are strange.


Dory and the Mama said... and Lacie do disco real good Mango!!!

I still think maybe you like snuggling with Dexter, subconsciously of course!


Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

Loved the hip movement. Mango you are so lithe.
