Before I start, I just have to share this movie of my pal, Chrome acting like a dorky teenager with his big brother, Zep. Guess even dignified horsies go through that awkward phase. Hang in there, Zep.

I was shocked, SHOCKED, to learn that stupid PeeWee had taken over MY bloggy during the run of Mango Minster! Worse still is the fact that some alert readers actually enjoyed looking at his dorky self and suggested he get more bloggy time.

As if!

Let me tell you, THE MANGO IS BACK and I am reclaiming my bloggy.

Now, since we have not had much flashy beat action in the past few weeks, I am going to show you some of my favorite photos of ME to cleanse your palette from an unfortunate overdose of labramess.

Hopefully now I can convince Momma to stop clicking that pesky "mark all as read" button in my google reader! I need to keep up with my friends!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Lest you forget what a real puppy looks like, here is my puppy self with Beautiful Raja. Damn, I'm cute!

P.P.S. Today is the birthday of THE BEAST! Yikes! I made her this little greeting. Watch out ladies, this is hot stuff! I had to shave my furs to make that movie! I am freezing!

Glad to have you back Mango! I can never get too much labraness but we here at the Moose lodge missed Mango!
Some of those photos are new to me! Very nice. The one of you and Raja is a classic for sure!

Marjie said...

nothing like Mastiff photos to remind folks what a real, full sized doggy such as ourselves looks like.


Petey said...

Whoa.Is PeeWee still allowed on the estate or has he been banished? Or worse...sent to Lacie as a birthday present???

Great to see you in such fine form - we can smell the suds from here...

Your pal,


brooke said...

Welcome back Mango! Good job over at the Minster!
That's one frothy mouth in that 3rd picture! hehehe
That baby picture of you and Raja... SOOO CUTE!

Moco said...

What a wonderful photo montage of the Mag Mango.

SKYY the Kuvasz said...

Wow. Great photos celebrating your hugeness. I wonder if I could get a "Relentlessly Shedding" sweater. I know! I could knit one from my own undercoat!

I better go so I can get started....

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Mango you do photograph well.

Sophie Brador said...

I love that last picture the best of all. Raja was extraordinarily beautiful, and might I add blond, just like another girl you know. Ahem.


P.S. I fear a looming flatness about our house soon. Just a feeling, but I think that pancake who sniffed my butt the other day might be moving in.

Da Mango is back in da House!

We have to admit, we have missed your adorable, slobberific face!!!

Tee hee! I saw Dexter in a couple of those pictures!

That video! Oh my! I think I need a fan! Mom says I'm too young to be watching things like that. I thought it was good though!


The OP Pack said...

Welcome back, Mango - you make a great Chippendale - we didn't know you could do such moves:)

Chrome is a horse??? Are you sure he isn't part dog - he is quite the playful guy.

Thanks for all the photos of you - we remember lots of them, and of course, the puppy one was THE best.

Cinnamon said...

Welcome back, Mango! And once again thank you for hosting such a great dog show, which I enjoyed so much!

Your puppy photo with Raja is really nice!!!


Twinkietinydog said...

Mango, I was afraid to encourage Dexter, much, to take over your blog. I was selfish too. I just didn't want Frankie to get any ideas. I've missed you au naturelle. Those suits seemed to cramp your style. Welcome back and... you know we're all so thankful and impressed by MM 2010. You'll be hearing this for a while.
Before I go: Hello, Dexter. I loved your posts!

kissa-bull said...

Honey the Great Dane said...

Welcome back, Mango!!! Great to have you back! I have to admit - much as I loved the excitement of Mango Minster, I really missed you and your visits too. (*But I did enjoy reading PeeWee's posts! Come on! Be a generous big brother and let him have more blog time! :-) )

Anyway, thanks for the "Mango Fix" - I think my favourite picture is of you standing in the snow, you're trying to get your brain in gear in order to move out of it! hee! Hee!

Hi Mango,
Glad to see you back and thanks for another great year of Mango Minster. We loved every minute of the excitement! Our momma thinks the photos of you are very handsome.
Lots of licks,

Stella said...

Welcome back, Mango. That is some hot Chippendale stuff you and the boys were doing! Lacy will NEVER leave you alone now.

I really wish you would give PeeWee some extra time on the blog. He is a good blogger and it was fun reading his stuff. Think about it, won't you? Like you get to ROTE and do other things Peewee doesn't get to do. It would just be the right thing to do for the little guy.


Jazzi said...

Welcome back MAngo!! It is good to see you again and Dexter did a good job on the blog. Yah he needs some blog time too!!


Wild Dingo said...

Oh man! the suds machine is BACK. the suds thrill me and chill me babay.

Mango Man! Oh Yea!
ps. you can go visit Loki's SART post and see why he earned his awards in his category!

Rudy said...

WB big guy! I'm back too.. Mom decided to let me blog 'cause we have nothing to do but watch the snow all day. She hogs that laptop ALL the time!

Sam and Pippen

Niamh said...

I am surprised that after all your exertions running Mango Minster that you didn't need at least a week of meditations before returning to the blog! You are a trooper Mango. It is good to see all those photos of your relentlessly huge self.

Your friend,

Maggie and Mitch said...

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaa, you're back, Mango! We never bought into the Dexter thing - nope, not us! You're the man!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

wally said...


Thank GOODNESS you are back. We enjoyed Mango Minster but the Dexter Doings were a bit much.

Every one of these pictures was a classic--thanks!

And we have a lot of snow here and are getting more and I was wondering if I could hire you to plow through the snow to make me paths and/or pick me up and carry me when I get stuck on our hill in the snow.

wally t.

Mack said...

The Mango is back! RH is in da house!
Our most favoritest pic is the one of you in front of all your lady friends - you are one popular dude!

And is labramess as bad as cockermess? Oh dog I hope not!

monica said...

nice... ! missed ya Mango. Your bro has entertained a bit though :o) Your pics are great - there is nothing like a mastiff on his back!

Stella, Gunther and Betty said...

Uh oh, there's goes the neighborhood...

Just kidding, Mango! We're glad to see ya again. But we did enjoy Dexter's company. So you'll have to let the dork post once in awhile, okay? Don't be a Mastiffhog if you can help it.

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

Seriously? Are ya really gonna send me Dexter for my barkday??? SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!

Thanks, Mango...I'll be sending Scruffy and Stan back as a problem...

Yes, with the excitement of me being THE BIRTHDAY PRINCESS fading rapidly...I face today a year older, with a beard that smells like um well death. I think Stanley's beard odor is contagious.

I feel a bath in my near future...

Did ya get that pic Asta took of us dancing??? I do look adorable.

Kisses darling and let Peewee POST.

He was most interesting.

Hi Mango, it is wonderful to see you back blogging. Now don't worry what happened at the Estate stays at the Estate.
We are not ones to spread rumours or gossip - heaven forbid!
Now whilst we are very happy to see you we must stick up for Dexter.
He has done a wonderful job whilst you are gone and we think you should share your blog.............
Now we are just saying - give it some thought.
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xx

achieve1dream said...

Hey, Mango! Glad you're back. I would never suggest to PeeWee that he should post to your blog more! Never!

I really like that picture of you and Raja. Very cute!

Welcome Back Mango!!!


MAX said...

Hey Mango buddy!
You are just as gorgeous as ever!!!...and it's nice to have some stability around again.
Welcome back!...but it must be said that you have a great brother!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Ohhh... welcome back, RH (aka Relentlessly Handsome)...

It's good to see your magnificent self reclaiming your bloggy (although Dexter really wasn't that bad honestly!!).

Sophie Brador said...

Mango, My collar is actually a giant pancake dog collar. Mom gets them special made for me. It is super comfy and awesome on me because I walk really nicely on the leash and never try to slip my collar. If I wasn't such a good girl, it probably wouldn't work and would slip right over my head.

This does not mean I am part pancake dog.


The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

well that should do the trick!

Nuthatch... said...

Nice to have the RH back. We missed the slobbers although Dexter wasn't bad - for a little brother.
BTW, lovely extension in that one pic (sorry you can take the judge out of the ring but you can't take the conformation judge out of the blogger bol).

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

Welcome back my dear sweet big friend! So glad that you are home and now can reclaim your blog. Way to go. Loved all the photos of you! I don't have a favorite as you are so cute in all.

Thanks for coming to my Super Bowl Party on Sunday. Hope you had a good time!

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

Where the heck are ya, Mango...not takin' a break...?? I mean you're not tired from the Minster are ya???

Did ya ROTE today? We got another half a foot plus of snow on top of the two feet we got last weekend...this is's making my fur frizz and I'm going to the salon on Saturaday and I'M SO GONNA FREEZE...Lacie begins to shriek...

Did you guys get LIKE ANY SNOW?

Oh...Mumsie FINALLY mailed your pressie yesterday...for your mom...I think she's gonna like it....

And we mailed Grouchy's too...the guy at the postie office looked at the custom's tag made out to GROUCHO ALIEN and looked at Mumsie like she might have a problem...ya know...goin' postal and 'at??...sorry..that "and 'at" is a Burgh thing...we end all our sentences with it, (and 'at...)



Cookie said...

Oh, me! Oh, my! My HEART! Channy was laughing very hard at the video. I don't know what her problem is!

Your food bowl looks relentlessly small, Mango! You need a BIGGER one!

Snuggly Bum Sniggles!

Oskar said...

Our favorite is the picture of you with Raja!
