Today, whilst PeeWee was off at Camp Hump A Lot, I stopped by my mailbox to discover a package for ME from Baby Rocket and Hootie! The DOH let me totally forget that I won their 100th blog contest. Sheesh!

WOW! Check out all those packages! Open up!

Two stuffies, nommy cookies, a fancy pants car leash, and a thermometer for Master to use in the barn.

Can you see the thermometer? It has special doggies on it so he knows when to turn on the AC and when to fire up the wood stove.

Technically the little giraffe stuffie was for the labradork, so I tried out the owl which is a much more fun toy anyway.

Thanks guys!

With PeeWee out of town for the day, I decided to continue my work on the Mangofication of his chewie. Hey, why not? We all know that everything on the estate belongs to me anyway.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

JD and Max said...

Hiya Mango - hey, great pressies. We love the thermometer, we've never seen anything like that before and now we WANT one too! Such a great idea - the weather here is so cold we're in serious and real danger of becoming pup-sicles, but do you think the humans care....? Do they heck - humph!

Yummy looking nommies - drool!! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Camp Hump a Lot??? Is that (A)where Dexter learns to do what comes naturally? Or (B) not to do it?

Given JH's behavior (and a bit of mine I must add in the interest of full disclosure)while we were on our road trip, he doesn't need (A) but could use a lot of (B).

Emnjoy your pressies!!

As if we didn't already know you were a WINNER... you got pressies to celebrate the fact. Shame that PeeWee wasn't there to ... ASSist you in your pleasant activities. I'm just sayin'.

When a Mastiff rules an estate, everything belongs to the Mastiff. That includes the humans. I hope your brother has learned that by now.

ps-Baby wants to know who she has to pay off to be a judge in the 2011 MangoMinster. Not being a competitive pooch she'd much rather be on the sidelines.x-H.

Hi Mango,

Great loot you received there! I love to get pressies as well and I got a Paw It Forward package recently...my first pressie since starting my blog and mom and I were so excited. Mom says she will post about it this weekend as she's too busy during the week to post it...what's up with that? I have all the time in the world.

Sam said...

What awesome pressies. I should really start participating in blog exchanges and contests, shouldn't I? The gifts you guys get are always amazing.

Ashley (the mom), Dixie (the Catahoula) and sometimes Lola (the Pit Bull) said...

Those are some great presents! I believe possession is 9/10 of the law and since you possess his chewie right now, it is yours!
Hugs and Tail Wags,

hero said...

Pawsome pressies... and did you turn PeeWee chewie to a work of art?

Licks, hero

Joe Stains said...

Cool pressies! Must be nice to get a break from the labradork every once in a while. I wonder if I can send Tanner somewhere...

Samantha said...

Never thought so many pressies could fit in such a small box!!! Love your giraffe and the pic of you chewing on that super bone!!! But that thermometer is just pawsome!!! Never saw one like that!
Hugs xo

River said...

What a great day you had and all indoors!

love & wags,

Twinkietinydog said...

Congrats! As for the stuffies, I think your owl is real cool. Love the squeaks. I'm a bit worried about the chewie though. I have a feeling it's been chewed up.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Mango darling, yes those pressies were from us. You are not loosing your gigantic mind!! hehe. XX-BRD

dewdana said...

whoa what a huge load of pressies! You and pee-wee are very lucky pups. I hope the giraffe made it through the day 'till he got home! I love that thermometer! I have been looking for one lately because it is cccooollldd here and I don't know exactly how cold because the nearest official weather station is 30mi away on the mainland! Anywho... have fun with squeakies!

1000 Goldens said...

How cool, and we LOVE the thermometer :) I need to find one of those!

Lorenza said...

They sent you pawesome presents!
Mangofication of his chewie??? wow!
What did he say when he came back??
Kisses and hugs

Stella, Gunther & Betty said...

Sometimes it ain't so bad when you have the estate to yourself, Mango.


Maggie and Mitch said...

What nice gifts from BRD and Hootie! Isn't it tons more fun opening gifts all by yourself than having a crackerdog brother around?!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Tucker said...

ocmist said...

What fun! Congrats on the big win!

Anonymous said...

congratulations on winning, mango!!!
this "mango minster" event sounds like a lot of fun - do ├╝beractive stick crazy fourleggers have their own category?

i promise i will come visit your blog more often - i've explained to my human what will happen if she won't let me use the computer, and she said she would rather not receive "gifts" in her shoes, and so i WILL be having access to the computer on a more regular basis from now on.


Inky and Molly said...

What a great loot of pressies. T'was about time that someone thought up a thermometer like that. Pinkies haven't got much of an idea otherwise...
