Loot at my Fabulous Booty

I need to apologize for that shameless plea for sympathy yesterday from PeeWee. I mean he broke a nail for goodness sake! But the sight of him dashing around the yard with blood squirting out was too much for momma and she took him along with a big bucket of money to the vet and he went in the dreaded back room and came out looking all sorry with a bandage.

Note from Momma -
His "pulp" was exposed and it bled whenever he walked on it. They actually trimmed his nail back even more and then packed it full of stuff and bandaged it up.

The bandage was SUPPOSED to stay on for 48 hours, but the dorky dude started eating it and when momma found a big hunk in his poop she said, "that's it!" and off it came.

Besides, I thought we were on High Ate Us, but as long as PeeWee has broken the silence, I might as well get my two cents in.

Some time back, JD and Max hosted a most awesome bootilishoush contest (did I spell that right?).

Anyhoo, I totally WON for my discrete, yet totally hot, family friendly entry.

And my fabulous prizes arrived by Royal Mail!

I can only assume that they do not make mastiff greeting cards in the UK because they sent me one with a labradork on it.

No worries, the loot was still intact. Check it out! Some nice pouches from their favorite doggie rescue, nommy foodables, fur conditioner, AND a new toy!

I suggested we sample the foodables first. Two for ME? How appropriate.

Oh man! Not the dumb sits again? Note that we have a respectable distance maintained at all times during our sits. Wouldn't want any accidentally labracontact. Ish!

I say, any doggie that doesn't recognize good food when he sees it should not get it, but momma is all like, "aw, look at Dexter, Mango, isn't he adorable?" Whatever.

Next up, let's check out that new.... HEY! HOLD UP! How did that get into PeeWee's pointy jaws?

And thus a most vigorous and exhausting chase ensued. Watch the movie here. I cannot believe momma was able to keep up the pursuit.

I have found that the best way to catch the little thief is through sudden attacks facilitated by counterbalancing my large and easily tipped over self with my formidable tail.

Or just try to scare him with insane mastiff flying ears!

See? It works! Nom, nom, nom.

All for ME!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Hi Mango
We are glad that Dexter's nail is OK - you know blood can be very scary - even for big dogs like you.
We loved the video of Dexter and the biscuit - very sweet.
Bailey likes to play with treats - toss them in the air etc.
However Martha can be quick to steal them - in some ways we are a bit like you two!!!!
Ah well if we can't be only dogs we just need to get on with it Mango.
It is so lovely to have you back in blogland.
Congratulations on your impressive win with your modest and discreet pose. What a great bunch of goodies.

Mango, you are such a gentleman to make a PG-13 entry into the contest. We are so glad you won, got nice prizes (and were able to get them back from the Dexter dog). Hope your little bro's nail heals quickly!

ocmist said...

What a neat bunch of prezzies! Glad you got your toy back... after all, PeeWee HAS jacked your blog! You did a good job of snagging that toy back from his sneaky little jaws!

We ARE glad that his foot is doing better! We tried and tried to leave a comment on that last post about his foot and blogger refused to let us. I'm sure glad it let us comment on THIS post!

Dott tore her nail off awhile back, remember! They sure do tend to bleed a lot and its kind of scary for the Moms! BG

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Mango! I'm so sorry I haven't come visiting for ages! Hsin-Yi has been so busy catching up with work since coming back from her conference that she hasn't had any time to help me visit my friends and our Google Reader is on 210 - eeek!!! She is having a nervous breakdown everytime she sees it so she quickly clicks away - but then the next time she clicks back, it's gone up another 20 posts!!! She keeps promising me every day that we are going to sit down and clear it but we never seem to get around to it...(sigh) - now I think it is heading for the dreaded "Mark all as read" as it is getting Beyond Hope...

Anyway, ouch - poor Dexter! That sounds really awful! I hope it heals up soon,

And what great presents from Max & JD! Those two always send the best presents, don't they?! Of course, you totally deserved to win with that incredible picture! (I think your MOmma deserves a prize too for managing to capture that perfect tail placement!)

Speaking of your Momma, Hsin-Yi says to please thank her for the email about your training and she is sorry she hasn't replied yet but she will soon! (Yeah right!)

I haven't watched your movie yet but Paul is putting out the lights and getting grumpy and saying it's time for bed so I think I'd better watch the movie tomorrow!

Hi Mango

Firstly we are sorry to read PeeWee had a poorly paw, good to read it is so much better.

Now! That video of you zooming around your estate quite wore us out. Such speed and finesse Mango we are utterly in awe.

We are HUGELY impressed.

Molly, Taffy and Monty.

Niamh said...

You are most intimidating when you go into your stalking mode Mango! The nerve of the pee wee to steal your new toy. Control of new toys, around goofy brothers is very important.

Your friend,

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

you'll never catch Dexter...

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

When we first read the title, we thought it said "flatulous booty" and were prepared for a different "tail".

Your winnings are wonderful - just keep that PeeWee in check.

Jake of Florida said...

We're big fans of the stealth approach --- but the sight of you )gasp) running was inspirational!!!

Glad you and the labradork are back from High Ate Us. We need our regular doses of relentlessly huge!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Gus said... must've been inspired by the fact that I killed that ball from Asta all by myself! Hope your lovely tug stays around a lot longer than the ball did. What is it with hoomans finding strange stuff in our poop? At least it come out?


Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos! Which just goes to show tat labra-dork, Mango is the Man!
Woo go Mango!

Hi MANGO. Glad you are back from your High Ate Us. Re: spelling two legger words... I say... It's MY blog and I will spell things MY way Ex. wimmen! They are mine and that's how I want to spell it.
Congrats on winning that grrreat box of goodies. Glad you got your "stuff" back from the dorkster.
You are not falling for his boo boo hurts me routine I see. Stay strong.

Want some snow??? I'm just askin'.

Marjie said...

I have a big blue rope which has a handle for the humans. Sometimes I let them play for a while before I drag them around. The rope toy is great fun! Wonderful grand prize loot!


Ina in Alaska said...

Mango that chase was very exciting!! We were cheering you on from the sidelines!! We like all your pressies and treats, they look very tasty to us!! We are glad to see Dexter's paw is not slowing him down any.... PS we have very nice daylight here now, the sun goes down around 6:30 pm YAY!!!! Our mom just wishes she was laying around on a beach somewhere being served umbrella drinks by Mr. Universe. Tee Hee!! Toby, Ginger, Jeter & Halle xoxo

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

Very exciting chase scene there; next time if you add a few sirens and flashing lights, I bet you could sell it to a movie producer! And I really like you family friendly photo... Somehow when I lie like that, my tail doesn't exactly cover my girly bits, and Mom tells me that I'm immodest. Hmmph!

Now I must follow your "training video" on how to beat your younger sibling.... ;-)

*kissey face*

Kari in WeHo said...

congrats on winning, that was a very respectable entry :)

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Those were some great winnings, Mango!! That movie was too funny! You are definitely a most cunning one! Congrats on your victory!

Woofs and Kisses!

BRUTUS said...

Haha! We got some of the same cool pressies, although they "fit" is a little differently! My finely conditioned and muscular self can barely pick up that chew rope! ANd did you see that mom put me IN that yellow bag? At least you are too big to pick up and embarrass in that particular way!

brooke said...

Great prizes for a great picture! Showed off your tooshie very well!
Dexter's foot sounds like it was really painful. Hope he's healing up ok!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Life With Dogs said...

All for me? You have to respect that! Then again, you are relentlessly huge, so I have to respect everything you say!

I may never look at orange juice the same way! Pulp? Ouch!!!!

tula said...

Hey Mango- that's alot of LOOT for a muscle butt shot.. hmm.. who's your agent?! after seeing the video. might have to call you- Flash:)


dewdana said...

That was some impressive stalking you did there RH- most stealthy at times. I guess Pee wee is still a puppy and can't help playing with his food. I believe that can be covered by the you snooze you lose policy though if you were to step in and eat it!
Since he was romping bare-footed like that I guess his foot is not bleeding anymore then? That is good. Buckets of money don't grow on trees after all and we would hate to see him go back.

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

I'm glad to see my Walkin' Wednesday video was soooooo inspirational!

I LOVED lookin' at YOUR BOOTY!


Droopy and Callie said...

Dear Mango

That is very nice booty you got there. You totally deserved to win the contest. Looks like you got some nice presents.

We hope Pee Wee's toe heals soon.

Congrats on winning the bootylicious contest. You do have an adorable booty! Mango you movie was fabulous...great stealth moves. We loved the picture with the flying mastiff ear...priceless!

Schwang said...

I was wondering how Dexter was able to keep his bootie on so well. I guess just for the photoshoot. Booties must taste delicious!

The Army of Four said...

We have to do that "sit before treats" thing, too, and I just don't think it's FAIR!
We used to get those fun rope toys to play with. Then Dave came and he swallows whole rope parts and well... let's just say that put an END to that fun. Hrumph!

Dory and the Mama said...

Wow Mango...what a great bunch of pressies you got!!


doyle and mollie said...

we are glad youve come out of hiding cos you always crack us up... who needs a fig leaf when youve got a tail arf arf

Wild Dingo said...

Mango Man! try not to work too hard getting your toy back. I mean, i almost had a heart attack just watching you! holy crap, that's a lot of aerobic energy you're putting out!

and yes, no toys for the labradorks!
I think you would have liked our lab. For a lab, he was huge (but not relentlessly). so we called him the labradorous rex! i think you'd have liked him!

Sierra Rose said...

Oh my gosh! You two are just fantastic!! Congrats on the winnings, Mango! And, LOVED the videos, we have big smiles on! Not sure what to say about the winning photo though! :) And, hey, where'd the snow go?

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Eric said...

Um. Well I never. I just read the lady bassetts comment. I'm blushing. Shocking.....

Quote.. "Congratulations on your impressive win with your modest and discreet pose. What a great bunch of goodies".

Haaaaaaaa!!. Must be a new name for your Crown Jewels.

Ludo van Doggy said...

Pawsome prizes for a well deserving booty!
I mean, it's no floofy tail, but I guess it has the manly thing going for it. Maybe I should get shaved?
I hope Dexter's foot ok!
~lickies, Ludo

Dog Foster Mom said...

The video was great! It was obvious that you really wore Dexter out - he could hardly stay ahead of you! I'm glad you finally got your toy back from him - you look so handsome laying on the deck with your toy in front of you.

Twinkietinydog said...

Aaah, it's so nice to have both of you back so we can all enjoy brotherly love. The entry photo: Priceless. I'll ask mom to print it and put it over my bed.
It was terribly sweet of you to address my comment to Deetz. It still doesn't feel right, but since you said, "it's part of the bittersweet world of blog land" I just have to accept it and stop feeling so dog-darn-helpless all the time. Thank you, my furiend :)

Sophie Brador said...

Captain Boo Boo Foot looks like his leg could double as a mallet. But I am glad he's okay and more importantly, that your bootie is okay.


houndstooth said...

Dexter, I'm so glad you're okay! I was worried about you with that big bandage on your paw!

Mango, great loot! Great booty, too, I have to say!


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Those were great video's. PeeWee you are suppose to eat that treat not play with it..
Wow Mango after all the over exertion you must of had to take a nap with your toy....

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Maggie and Mitch said...

We can't believe that you played with your biscuit that long before eating it, Dexter!
Congratulations on your win, Mango! That is one bootilishoush picture!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Please be nice to your little brother. I saw your cousin this past weekend. Jaques said you haven't visited recently. He missed you. Mommy says I must be nice to Sally Ann, but she is a baby just like pee-wee.

Lorenza said...

Glad Dexter is doing well!
This time, I guess you are right about him, Mango! Playing with a treat?? Whatsuuuup???
They sent you pawesome presents!
Kisses and hugs

Samantha said...

Excellent booty shot, Mango! And amazing sportiness to get the toy away from the Dexter! Furry impressive! But still... glad to hear his toe is okay - he looks very agile in the movie, but mayhap that was taken before the "event." Hope you all gets some more hi aye tuss - that's what I be doing in the next few days.
Hugs xo

animal lover, quilt lover said...

So happy to see you and your brother back in blogland!! I have missed you two.
Glad to hear Dexter is ok. We want him to be up to you Big Mango!! He has a big job being your brother!!1

Jazzi said...

Mango, CONGRATS on the win. Cool. and what a great pic to win with too. You sure got a great package too. It must be fun to intimidate Dexter huh?? Guess thats the way it goes!! Funny!!


JD and Max said...

Hiya Mango, we're glad you finally got the stuff! You're right - we couldn't find a card with a mastiff on, very shabby we thought, he he! We loved the chase video - you have some great moves. And that photo of the flying ears is truly pawsome! We don't play with our food before we eat it otherwise the other one snarfles it! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

achieve1dream said...

Wow Mango, you're starting to get your trim, studly figure back! Great video!!
