A Brief Hiatus



We will be taking a brief hiatus from blogland (sob). Momma says that the work place is causing extreme mental fatigues (they must be doing clicker training). Not to mention that I have gotten into my old habits of refusing to get out of bed in the evening thereby requiring me to wake her up in the wee hours for an emergency empty which disrupts her sleep. PeeWee has jumped on that bandwagon too and he does not coordinate with me so we wake her up twice. Sorry about that...

Nothing dire going on here, but we need to let Momma regroup for a few days.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

We totally understand. Our mom takes hiatuses too -- only she never announces them in advance, leaving us with fur on our faces.

Chill, Mango's mom -- figuratively, not literally!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Hah! Welcome to Puffies world. SHE wakes him up for FORCED outties before she goes to bed. No foodies or water at night for him. Sometimes she slips me a slurp of water if he's sleepin. Last night the Mr. fed us waaaay more then she felt was needed and sure enuff, at 3:30am, Puffie was whining to go outside. She says not food for either of us past 6pm and darn little of it either. She makes me go out anytime he goes out, sometimes this annoys me as it interrupts my beauty sleepies.
Enjoy yer vacation. Yer Momma needs a rest.

sniffies,
Bonnie

I will miss you something fierce. You won't be gone for 87 days will you????
My mom says to tell your mom that she should visit with her friend... Mr. J. Beam.

Kari in WeHo said...

sounds very reasonable to me :)

Droopy and Callie said...

Enjoy your break. We will miss you!!!! Get some much needed rest!

Lots of slobber,

Dory and the Mama said...

Wild Dingo said...

Woo TWO better straighten up and fly right if you don't want your momma leaving you on the side of the road that says "free to a good home" on it! or worse "free to ANY home!" Don't make me come over there and use the skillet on you for bed time pottying!

Mango's Momma: please rest up first, then beat your dogs later. you'll have much more energy for it when you're not exhausted. ;)

wags-n-wiggles,

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

Oooh. Making Mom wake up twice in the night? Not. Good. Srsly. TaiChi does that, but she can get away with it because she's 1,000 years old (and that's what champion Bad Sports do...), but you two? I can see how your Mom would be Not Pleased. So for your sakes, her sake, and all of our sakes, pee when you are supposed to! (And my Mom agrees with the above comments about beating you when your Mom has more energy, and becoming reacquainted with Mr. J. Beam...)

That's okay, as long as you make sure to come back. I took a big break, but am back now! Hope mom feels better soon!

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Mango and Dexter,
Y'all shouldn't do that to your Mommy. You might see wee-wee pads appearing soon if you keep it up.

Bogart said...

Tell your mama we said that we hope she gets some rest! We understand the internet fatigue COMPLETELY...

The OP Pack said...

Hmmm, your place sounds a lot like our human nieces and nephews - they wake their mom up all night and there are three of them:( Hope things get better for Mom at work, shouldn't have to be that way for her.

Martine said...

Goodness!!! Get on a schedule to help your poor momma!!!! I'm glad the kiddlets are the same potty schedule or I would go crazy!!!

Not a problem. Everyone needs a break. :)

Gus said...

Oh Mango Man and Dexter Dude...when Teka was tiny she was getting Dad up a couple of times a night. So for a while she slept in a crate by the bed. She was really just going out hunting frogs and stuff. But YOU, you better get your butts drained BEFORE your mama goes to sleep.

And we hope she gets some good rest with all this good advice you are getting.

Woooos Mango Man, tell woo Mum to take deep breathes, and have some great naps during your time off!

Niamh said...

Mango,Mango,Mango! You and your labradork brother should not be exhausting your momma like that. She worked so hard with you on Mango minster. You need to let her get some well deserved rest at night.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

TwoSpecialWires said...

Your mama TOTALLY deserves some respite. We're just sorry that the work place is one of the reasons why. Moma doesn't have that to blame, but it's clear from OUR hiatus these past few weeks since the holidays, that she's had her own reasons to keep us from reading and writing like we'd like. So, with that in mind, we'll practice some of the meditations that we've been learning from you.

(Thanks again for EVERYTHING! And we've not sent an address on purpose. The compliment you gave Fergi was reinforcement enough. She's so full of herself now that she even growled at me yesterday. Imagine!)

Love ya
Jake (and Fergs)

Benny and Lily said...

No worries..you guys did massive blogging recently...Mango is that nice waking momma in the middle of the night? Snoopervise Pee Wee too. See ya soon,

Hi, Mango!
I hope everything will go fine for your Mom at her work!
A break sounds a very good idea!
I am sure she will be back... fully recharged!
Take care

The Thundering Herd said...

Enjoy your break.

Our hu-dad insists on seeing us relieve ourselves before we can go to bed. Just going outside and standing is not enough. It is a total invasion of privacy if you ask us.

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

How long a HI A TUS? I need my Mango fix at least three times a week...

Ahh...the toenails...

I've busted mine twice and our old Sarge did his once...in the house...looked like a murder had happened...that's when Mumsie knew Bruvver wouldn't be a doctor...he saw the blood, turned green, and refoosed his snackie after school. Said he had to do homework...sure he did.

You might wanna let the vettie look at it...we had to get the nail cut way down to the base so it wouldn't break all the way off...and it had to be bandaged and couldn't get wet...and antibiotics too...

Yeppers...more money to the vettie...ours were split...not just a neat break crosswise...I'm just sayin' before your mom goes all cracker dog...

Oh...a card will be arrivin' to your postie box...your package may have already arrived...

Don't be away to long and for Petey's sake, LET THE MOMMA SLEEP...

They get grouchy and mean and don't give out many foodables...

Kisses, Beast

Rest, meditate, get your lives back in order...We'll all miss you terribly, but absence does make the heart grow fonder. I'll be waiting for your return.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

We will miss you but you deserve a break after Mango Minster. But not TOO long of a break! :-)

monica said...

Oh Mango Momma - take good care now! I think you should take time to lay down in the midst of your two 4-legged hombres and cuddle - it can be soothing ! Looking forward to seeing you and your wonderful posting again!

Martha and Bailey said...

Take it easy! We all need the occasional break and your momma has worked sooooo hard on MM.

Mack said...

Everybody needs a breaky now and again! Tell mom to take it easy and don't let the workies get her down too much!

Sugars,

Clive said...

Mango, your Mom deserves all the rest and relaxation she can get after MM. She must be worn out! We hope you don't keep getting her up in the middle of the night - disturbed sleep is not good!

We hope your Mom is back feeling fully recharged very soon!

best wishes from us all
Clive, the NSLM and his Mom

ps-we're still dancing around the place here with happiness over my Best in Show! We've a few more photos to post today - a end of week summary of all the great excitment and delight of MM.

Sounds like she needs an order of what Khyra said!

Amber and Nala said...

We hope your Momma's work gets better soon and you need to help her by getting on a good schedule. ;) My Mom and Dad won't take no for an answer if I try to pull the not going out before bedtime trick. :) Give Dexter a big kiss for me too...I know how painful toenail injries can be. Hope he gets better soon.

Kisses,
Nala

Momma sure does deserve a break. We wish her peace at the workplace. We sure understand how exhausting that is. You boys take good care of her, okay?

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Momma's do deserve a break now and then. BUT, our momma would like one favor, please. The name and address of the winner of the cat-dog contest so she can mail their gift/award!

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh hope your Mum's clicker training goes ok, and you will be back moving amongst us soon. But of course, we perfectly understand - my J has to regroup herself sometimes, and prioritise (whatever that may mean apart from the fact she probably has swallowed a dictionary ;0D )

Just popped by though, to say thank you to Dexter for the Award you kindly gave me a while back. I will post about it soonest, but thank you muchly for thinking of me!

I am late thanking you because my Jeannie has been working away, ooops sorry, on holiday in the sun, so we have not been on the blogs at all for an age.

Good luck with the clicker training to your Mama.

oh and Jeannie xxxxxxxx
