Facetious Fool Day


Photo courtesy of the Beast




Now I know that facetious is a really big word, but I am confident that it means dignified at all times and not embarrassed to admit that I kind of like the way that taffeta tickles my nards.


Mango (confident enough in his Mango-ness to wear taffeta) Man! Oh Yeah!

P.S. The Wolfies directed my attention to an actual Otterhound blog! Hey! They look like pretty cool doggies after all!

Oh Mango what did they do to you! I'm not sure brindle and taffeta go. But if you are confident in your Mango-ness, then I can be confident for you!

Wags!

Mango, I thought you'd wear a bridal thong under that dress! It figures you'd go commando!

P.S. I admire a dog who's confident enough in his masculinity to have a little fun on April Fool's with a dress!

Mango, can we count on you to toss the bouquet to one of us?

Those otterhounds look like big fluffy airedales to us.

Princess said...

Mango, you look very regal...almost Princess-like. It reminds me of someone, but I can't quite place it.

mayziegal said...

Mango, my wordies have all left me. And you know me, I'm never at a shortage of words. April Fool's is a teensy bit scary. I gotta go find some cheese.

Wiggles & Wags,

I'm not gonna lie like everybody else. Mango, you are one ugly bride.

Lola said...

Mango in drag. Who'da thunk it? Not that there's anything wrong with that. You gotta be you, Mango, even if there are aspects to your huge self that we did not suspect heretofore.

wags, Lola

Oskar said...

Very nice Lady Di vibe you've got going on this this one!

Jake of Florida said...

Mom had a really long day today -- and one look at your brideness made her wonder if she had dropped into a parallel universe.

We've seen worse actually on the Broadwalk right here in Fort Lauderdale!!!

Happy Facetiousness!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Frankie Furter said...

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

Yes, yes...we know Airedales come from Otterhounds and Stanny smells like a hound and howls like one too...Um...do ya feel something crawlin' under your taffeta? Actually, the dress is made of silk...I'm just sayin'...now if I could just figure out how to get out from under it...I'm amazed I can get WiFi down here...sheesch...this is more of an undercarriage view of the Mango than I need...we wondered what you were going to do with that pic...

Oh...Mumsie took the dog quiz...her top result was a mini schnauzer...cept they yip...well,I yip...figures she'd have gotten a terrier...

Kisses dear...and I'll never bother you again...April Fools...

Ina in Alaska said...

Love your bridal portrait. You are quite the vision!!!

BRUTUS said...

Wow, that's a LOT of material!! Tons of Taffeta you might say. How funny that there actually IS an otterhound blog - going to check it out now. Wonder if they've figured out why they're being duluges with visits all of the sudden...

Snorts-

TULA

peeses: the president drove by my mom on her way home yesterday (rte85).. he was head to framingham--the motorcade of black suvs stopped by the Kennedy seafood market & looked like Peewee hopped out to do some surveillance of the grounds... huh.

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

HARRRRROOOOOOOOO!!!! That's just too funny!!!

Woofs and Kisses!

Ludo van Doggy said...

oh yes Mango, it takes a real man to wear girls clothes. Wait, does that make me a girl, since Mum cut my skirt off. Life be so very confusing.
Hey, cool otter hounds, do they carry shells around on their bellies? I will go look.
Hoppy Easter!
~lickies, Ludo

Your friends,

ScrapsofMe said...

Isn't that THE dress? How'd you manage to get a fitting? Anyways, you look very...ummm...well, words just can't describe my mixed emotions. You must be very confident to pull of the look.

sniffie,
Bonnie

Clive said...

Mango!

Was that not the dress that a very unhappy princess wore on her wedding day! Go for a different design - that's what we say!!

Great photo!

Peppy Sheppys said...

Oh my dog you make a beautiful blushing bride. I might want to marry you.

Otis the POTUS.

ocmist said...

OK... Like... THAT is weird!!! We had to do a quick explanation to the Pups that, NO, Mango is NOT a cross-dresser... there IS a day that the humans celebrate to try to make everyone look foolish, etc.

Mom's favorite April Fool's Day was the day her second son was born and was Mango sized at 10 lbs. and 10 oz.!
