Strange Sounds and Strange Movements

Our next door neighbors had a most curious creature visiting them recently. Momma says it was a dog, but I am not so sure. You can decide for yourselves by watching this movie.

Well, given Momma's fixation on my large and expressive bottom, it is not surprising that she made this movie of my newest way of expressing myself (no, it's not what you think). Ladies, prepare yourselves when watching the movie because it contains that famous Mango Love Song which is sure to melt your hearts.

Did you see how skinny my bottom is in that movie? The reason that I only lift my tail a little is because I am weak from hunger. I FINALLY convinced Momma and Master that my diet is officially over. Thank goodness. Back to eight cups of kibbles a day.

For those of you without high speed internets, here is a photo of me just being handsome.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!


JD and Max said...

Hi Mango - fun video! We love your garden, wish we could come over for a romp with you and PeeWee. Hey, a vote has just come in for you in the 'tail placement' category of our 'bootie-licious' competition! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Randi said...

Awww Mango..that pudgy fudgy beagle next door should go on a diet...what a chunker!

& I do like that way you lift your tail ever so slightly...just like when you lift your leg only a little - to quote you.."why risk falling over?" & I can only assume its kinda the same thing...why use up all that energy to wag your tail, unless you are FOR SURE super excited about it...kinda like a survival mec-an-isam..

love & licks,

Ms. ~K said...

It looked like Dexter was considering peeing on the beagle!!!
Can't say we blame him...
Oh Mango, Sassy can't stop watching your tail video...she thinks you're a "HOTTIE!" (sorry Dexter, she's fickle).
Hugs and Rubs,

brooke said...

We're jealous of your big back yard! That howling little creature was quite interesting.
I must say that little tail lift was quite alluring... how could that labragal resist the MANGO?!

Samantha said...

Yes, I can totally understand how weak your tail must have been after dieting so long - how much kibble were you allowed on the fast, BTW??? I get 1 C in the am and one at night. I still get fat - pooh! But back to EIGHT cups??? I suppose that would be about right for one so huge as thy bootiful self, Mango! Love the beagle movie too - was your lovesick song for the beag??? Dexter looks interested in the baying doggie too! Nice movies - I always love watching your vids!
Hugs xo

pam said...

Oh Mango Man you've gotta stop with the Love Song Singin and Tail Liftin. Meja just about jumped through the puter to get to you.

And she's hard enough to deal with as it is!


Biggie-Z said...

Aren't beagles just the funnest dogs to play with? I have one in my building too. He was bigger than me when we met. hehe

I am impressed that you can play with that Fence in the middle. To me, Fence means "GUARD"!!!

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

OMD...how many animals live on the other side of that fence? Is it like a zoo or somethin'???

Do ya hafta pay?

As for that sweet Beagle...well...he/she sounds just like Stan...he howls like a hound...well, Dales do have Otterhound in their DNAS...yeppers...and he taught Scruff and me to howl,so that is our main form of bein' hysterical...drives the hoomans nuts.

As for that tail video...I'm thinkin' that shouldn't be shown of TV...maybe you need to read some rules on Eat A Cat...stop by...I'm havin' a class...oh, wait...you WERE there...I got a pic of you roachin' on the teacher's desk...or laughin' your so called skinny butt off...

Frankly, Mango...I'm thinkin' you won't be wastin' away any time soonest.

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Mango, I think you and that beagle could start your own singing group!

I think your tail lift is much more dignified than wagging it all over for every little thing like a labradork.


Petey said...

Sounds like that little beagle was singing a love song - reminded me of the dulcet tones of my own dearest Rosie...

Your pal,


Marjie said...

I eat 8 cups of kibble per day. My human brothers also feed me whatever human food they can sneak past Momma. She was howling about me being overweight and elderly this summer. Ha! I do not need the cane like she does!


elbouwii said...

love the movies,
me El'bow like strangers, but usually the stranger runs away?
am i that scary?
No i am to good looking :D


houndstooth said...


I think that beagle needs to go on a diet! You've got a better shot on American Hound Idol than he does with that tush wiggle, I'd say!


Clive said...


Looks like that beagle needs to do a lot more running around!

Great videos!

love and woofs

Agatha and Archie said...

DUDE how do you do that????????AND of course he is in the bedroom trying to do that with his tail.... only his is half the size of yours...... ANd that beagle kid looks like fun if she would stop howling...And PL2 thought of your Momma on Thanksgiving when she heard that the Pike was backed up TWENTYONE MILES...hoo boy..... that would not have been a good thing to be in...Love A+A

Kess And Her Mama said...

Looking handsome suits you! 8 cups of kibbles a day...Wow! I only get 1 cup.

Jazzi said...

Mango, You do look very handsome just sittin there!!!
Thank goodness the diet is OVER!!!!


Sam said...

Mango, I started giggling as soon as the video started and that little beagle mouthed off to you and your brother. Tell Momma thank you for always making me laugh with your antics!

The OP Pack said...

Your neighbor visitor sounds just like Bailey the Beagle who used to stay with us when the human sister lived here - man could he make a lot of noise!!!

Tail lifting - woo hoo - Mango that is really cool. We can't wait to see what MFT has to say about it.

Woos, the OP Pack

Benny and Lily said...

Mango man thats no dog. I think its your shadow. Whatever you do that thing does.
Benny & Lily

dewdana said...

Your love sick crooning is too much Mango. Did you see that look Pee wee gave you... like you were nuts or something! I tell you no respect!
I am a little worried that you can't get your tail up... they make pills for that you know ;-)
I can not believe how lightning fast you bolted across your grounds very impressive! Glad the diet is over!

Koobuss said...

That was very nice, Mango. I am impressed. You showed remarkable restraint. I would have made a lot more noise than you did. And your tail movement is so dignified. You are one cool dude, my friend.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

ScrapsofMe said...

Are you sure that's not just GAS escaping causing yer tail to lift like that?

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

Just imagine the lifting MY fluffy tail AND panytloons would inspire?

PeeEssWoo: Or NORWOOD'S pantyloons?

Niamh said...


WHAT are you doing with your tail??? Very suggestive. I am not going to let Ambrose watch that video - it will give his adolescent self some ideas.

Your friend,

The Thundering Herd said...

Oh, yeah, Mango - you are just wasting away.

River said...

Hey, it's a fat old red beagle!! We had to bark at him when mom played the movie. That was fun. Mango, you are looking good. Just in time for the howlidays.

love & wags,

The Army of Four said...

Ba-woooo! Ba-woooo!
(I speak a little Beagle.)
Congrats on getting back to 8 cups. You do look a bit faint.
Tail wags,

Joe Stains said...

What was that thing, a 4 legged car alarm?? I don't even know what that sound was.

As for your tail lifts, I like how they are like little heartbeats.

Nellie and Calvert said...

Mango! Your new neighbor is a Beagle, be prepared for lots of howwwwwling....

Oooh, your back yard is as big as our dog run... ahhhh... We'd love to romp around with you!

You have great tail action going on there ... You are one talented Mangoness.


Sunny,Scooter,Shamus&Jamie said...

Sunny& th rest

Beaglebratz & mom too said...

Lorenza said...

Mango Man!
You have a very interesting way to express yourself! Sorry but I had a good laugh watching you in the video!
No more diet??? Wow! Congratulations!
Kisses and hugs

Dewey Dewster said...

Geez Mango....ya sure have a HUGE yard...'n a long fence.....now that neighbor doggie of yers has a silly bark.....he must be mostly beagle cause they do part howl, part bark...it's as annoyin' as anythin'.....

But runnin' back and forth along the fence is great exercise.....that's probably why yer butt is shrinkin'....

Dewey Dewster here....

Stella and Gunther said...


Mango, there is a guy that drives past our house TWO TIMES A DAY EVERYDAY, with his howling Beagle in the back of his pick-up. We can hear him coming a mile away. Mom can almost set her watch by our drive by Beagle. How funny that you have one visiting next door. He's quite pudgy, maybe he should come over and play with you guys.

Ina in Alaska said...

Uh oh..... The sauve tail lift propelled Ginger (poodle) into Mango Madness.

Wild Dingo said...

Mango Man! Oh Yeah! Bein' handsome is hard work! Our trainer once told me not to give Loki a treat just cuz he's handsome, but that he should work for it. but do you know how hard being handsome is? it's WORK!

I love how PeeWee and you are all aloof and quiet at the fence and that little dog is like freakin' out... way to stay cool man!

Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Mango, what interesting tail movements!
When you started your plaintive whining we have to tell you Martha joined right in - did you hear her?
Martha & Bailey xxx

Maggie and Mitch said...

poopoo, mom says that grams puter doesn't do videos! :-(
But we did love that last picture of your most handsome self, Mango!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Martha and Bailey said...

Mango, we have a staffing problem this end - our secretary is a human and not being a canine sometimes types what she hears - of course you are right - to Martha and me your calls were very inviting!!!!
Bailey xxx

Frankie Furter said...


Wow! I think that beagle has a lot to say, so he is just running the words all together into a few long ones. ? . Your tail trick is very interesting to me...maybe that's how I broke mine when I was little.
Thanks for the laughs, your Hugeness.

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Thank you for including a photo of your large and handsome self for us. The girls are ga-ga and dreaming of Masscots.

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

we loved the bonus feature in the first movie and we appreciate your sphincter control in the 2nd movie. Saige thought you made a bit of an ass of yourself over that labragal

Dozer and Coop said...

That is one strange tail thing you got going on there. Dottie's the only one with a tail in our house so we'll go see if she can do it.

Does this tail thing get you dates?

Love, Dozer, Dottie and Cooper

Ludo van Doggy said...

I would be worried about that beagle! It might eat you!
hehe, Mango. I can see how starving you is! That tail wagging looked hard work. I dread to think how hard it would be if you had lots of furs.
~lickies, Ludo

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Luda said...

Kari in WeHo said...

so do you think anything under say 50lbs is not really a dog?

Dory and the Mama said...

I think that is a very loud barky box Mango!!

What great tail muscle control you have!!!


Two Country Poodles said...

The song in your tail video made my head twist and my heart flutter! You would at all be interested in a girl friend who is 10 inches at the shoulder, 10 pounds, and curly haired?

Wags and Licks,
