Pedicure Day

Who likes getting their nails done? Don't all raise your paws at once!

I make momma take me to the V-E-T to get my nails done. I LOVE IT! Because I have convinced them that unless there is a constant supply of nommy foodables directed at my large and no chewing required mouth I will wiggle and squirm until it is impossible to give me a proper trim.

Shall we begin?

As you can see, production of large amounts of slobbers makes it possible to swallow gigantic pieces of jerky and also provides entertainments as it sprays and dribbles all over everything.

Uh oh, where did my treat dispenser go?

Hurry! I feel an uncontrollable desire to put my feet out of reach!

Watch an exciting live action movie of my pedicure here!

Finished at last. Nice tech lady, Maria, always does my nails. She has been my special manicurist like totally forever and is most speedy and wily.

Nevertheless, I did manage to get some slobbers on her hands, in her hair, and all over treat dispensing lady, hehehe.

I let Maria clean out my ears too. Of course then she couldn't resist taking a sample of the delightful things which I am cultivating inside my ears and told me I had the yeast and gave momma icky ear drops. I suppose that is her evil revenge for me getting slobbers in her hair.

Ready to go home when you are.

Treat dispenser lady left some foodables on the examination table. I managed to sneak a few off before she busted me and pocketed the rest. Drat!

Oops! Did I accidentally leave suds on the table edge? How thoughtless.

This is my bottom.

I was in such a hurry to leave that I didn't get to say goodbye to anybody, but when momma went back in to pay the bill, she got to talk to these two little mini-mastiffs. They work behind the counter at the V-E-T.

Check out that smokin hot gal on the left. I bet she would love livin with a full sized guy such as myself instead of that PeeWee boyfriend of hers.

Drive woman! To the estate!

Does momma look a little shell shocked? No worries, she always looks like that after paying the V-E-T bill.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Check out this dale I found on YouTube! Groovy! Although I don't know how he can stand living with that cackling human.

I am pretty sure this must be Miss Sophie! After all, she is speaking French, no?


Kari in WeHo said...

my three are stuck with us doing their nails :)

The OP Pack said...

Oh Mango - we showed our Dad your video and he couldn't watch more than a few seconds - the suds really got to him. Mom just sat here and laughed at him.

We go to the vet for our nail clipping too, but we don't get lots of treats like that. What are we doing wrong?

Sam said...

Marge is not a fan of pedicures, either. We do them at home with a Dremel, and yes, the foodables must be constantly shoved in to her mouth, too.

Tucker said...

My pedicures are done at home. Maybe if I had more foodables I wouldn't be so squirmy when they were gettin' done.

woof - Tucker

Samantha said...

Way to work up a froth, Mango! Wowee - nice nail job too - you are very good at allowing those cookie "dispensers" to work a drill near your pads - sounds scary and furry much like a dentist - urgghhh! You are good!
Hugs xo
PS - headin' back to see the movies! Forgot!

Samantha said...

Hysterical - 'specially the 2nd - still chuckling!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

You sure are funny Mango.. Those tech ladies probably just love to see you come and visit. Bet they fill the treat jar.. he he

Wild Dingo said...

i need to have the techs take pix of loki having his nails trimmed. he hides his HEAD! It's sooo funny.

Mango it was very thoughtful to leave the suds on the table so they can clean it! suds is very good cleaning!

too fun watch you!

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

So, does that replace one meal fur woo?

PeeEssWoo: I bet woo were also sudsing thinking of my floofy tail AND pantyloons!

dewdana said...

Whoa serious suds!Your mani pedi lady looks like a real pro! At Moose's vet they do ok trimming but if I want them to use the grinder I have to take him to Miami. He is waaaayyyyy overdue!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

Let me go through my files here to find the right quote.... just a minute... Got it!


Mango, are you serious? All that for a manicure?


Frankie Furter said...

I believe it was most generous of you to bestow you precious Slobbers upon the VET Folks. I hope they appreciated it.

houndstooth said...

Mango, has your mom ever heard of the Manners Minder? Some people in your life might really appreciate it!

I have obviously been going about this pedicure business all wrong! I haven't been getting treats or a team of people fussing over me when I get my nails trimmed! I took a few notes!


Shmoo said...

I swear, my human had no idea you were at the V-E-T getting your nails clipped when I allowed her to post about nail clipping.

Regardless, I'm sorry.


Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

That was an impressive amount of slobber Mango, we thought you were trying to drown those hoomans.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Lola said...

Mango, you are the king of slobber. You are second to none in that department. Your slobber is, like the rest of you, relentlessly huge. It's grand enough to be a whole separate entity. I'm so impressed! Your nail clipping system seems to be pretty effective as well.

I get mine done at the groomer because we Shar Pei have rather difficult nails. I don't mind it much because next to the dreaded bath I get there it's a pleasure.

If your mama looked shell shocked it's probably cuz you drooled in her shoe and she had that pesky wet sock feeling.

And if the bill was high, it's probably because you ate an entire pig while you were there??!!

That was impressive Mango and I don't impress easily.

When we get married in June, are you going to wear a white dress that won't show the drool?

How about waterproof pillow covers on the honeymoon?

That Dale and Lab were hilarious...

I'm just sayin..

OMD>..the Pens just SCORED AGAIN...four to one, Pens!!!!!!!!!!

It's so hard to type and multitask...

Kisses, dear boy...

Your fiance,


Lorenza said...

I can't believe you like that!!!
No amount of treats would make me like it!
I wonder if the bill included the laundry for the lad's uniform!
Kisses and hugs

Dennis the Vizsla said...

the booker man said...

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Mango, you are SO bad! Just think about this, if you would be a furry good boy to have your toenails trimmed and didn't have to go to the dog-tor to have it done, momma would have more green papers left to buy more foodables for you! Think about it...

Life With Dogs said...

I WISH I looked so sane after reviewing vet bills. What is your secret? Is there some magical chemical compound in those suds? :)

Mr Koda MD said...

Usually I let Mum do my nails while I'm lying on my back... however YOU HAVE ENLIGHTENED ME!

I must MAKE HER TAKE ME TO THE VET where the nommy foodables you speak of are kept!


monica said...

they weren't mini mastiffs - they were apparently some Bundy the Bundle of Joy wannabes! all the way over there ! and there is nothing mini about me !! I might not hit the weight scale as hard as the Mango - but my Ego is just the same size :o))

My mom totally symphatises with that sort of trance look after paying a vet bill...

Sasha said...

Hey Mango

My human gives me a foot-bath twice a week, when she's not too "tired" (lazy).

I keep biting my front feet, and the vet said I have foot mites, so we have to use this special shampoo on them.

But because my human is so lazy, she only washes my front feet (I don't bite the back ones). But, of course, I'm in the bath, so my back feet get wet, and then I get to make muddy paw-prints all over the floor from my back feet.

And then I have to do zoomies around the house, and rub my whole body against the couch, even though it's only my front feet that are wet.

And make more muddy back-paw prints.

Puppy kisses

Mack said...

I can't believed they called you greedy! You are a big boy and require lots of foodables!

Maybe I ought to try that at my evil vets....

Clive said...


What a lot of slobber!!

My groomer does my nails - can't say I like it but at least she is nifty and quick at it as well!

take care
Clive and the NSLM

MAX said...

Hey there Mango Buddy!
I'm surprised you didn't frighten that lady away with all your suds! So I take it you are all nice and new again?! Tell your Momma that my mom also gets shell shocked at the Vet bills.
Take car and lotsalicks

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

wow the food despenser lady sure stuffed alot of foodables in her pocket!!

Maggie and Mitch said...

You sure get a lot of treats just to have your nails done, Mango! You've got those women trained!
We see what you mean about the cackling Airedale hooman! hummmmmmm

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

The Two Country Poodles said...

Wow...You do good at the manicure! I do too...i am a good girl. Bobo on the other hand had to have 2 people hold him down.

Mack and Mia said...

DUDE! Your v-e-t gives you a non-stop flow of noms when you get your paws done?! Are you kidding me?! We just get man-handled! Mia and I are totally moving in with you and Dexter!

Wags and Woofs,
Mack and Mia

violett said...

Hi Mango, there I must cacking as in the Airedale video. I cannot slobber.
But you are the king of slobber!
Lots of love

Marjie said...

My Dad told my human brother Patrick to go buy me a nail clipper. I have never had my nails done, but those two fools think they're going to do it this week. Hmph.


3 doxies said...

OMG...I just found your blog from somewhere else...can't remember exactly. Anyway, Mango you a just all kinds of funny. My mum is laughing so hard...wait, I think she's done gone and peed on herself.

kissa-bull said...

oh mango
we're furry sure that girl woggie woulda left wiff you had you turned on your relentlessly huge charm on her.
who can wesist all that sugary slobber
pibble sugars and wee wiggles
the pittie pack

1000 Goldens said...

OMD Mango, your suds production at the vet was phenomenal :) My vet takes me behind closed doors so my Momma has no idea what goes on back there. She didn't know they used dremmel tools!

Agatha and Archie said...

What color polish did you get?? We were really impressed by the suds dude.....We are still hearing people "run" by from the Marathon.IT IS EIGHT O CLOCK!!!! Love A+A

Oskar said...

You are one expert slobberer!

Stella, Gunther and Betty said...

Mango, we still can't get over how huge your head is compared to your moms! Dayum! Stella got her nails done yesterday. She hates it and squeezes out pixie sized farts...


Scottie the 'Cutie' said... nails are done by Gramma and my groomer. Mom is nervous about doing my nails coz they're black and hard to locate the quick...>.<" You sure are lucky to be having foodables dispensed to you while you got your nails done!


Randi said...

Aw Mango..I loved loved loved the video of you getting your pedicure! My mom bought a nail grinder for my little bro Quincy & he seems to be doing Ok with it...

But I think the grinder at your nail salon looks like something outta a bloody scary slasher movie!


Glad you got all those foodables!~

love & licks,

Anonymous said...

Hey Mango,
i entirely identify with your cause.these hoomans do come up with weird names for their foods. look at what they hav done to our names..Bud is distorted to Budweizer and Ginger to Ginger-ale! and they drink it too!

how gross!!
btw, i'd love to be your friend.Ginger too is pretty excited as she is the thinker types


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

My Mom has that same look whenever she leaves the VET, too. (Although I have health insurance, so Mom is confident that she won't go into sticker shock the way she used to with TaiChi!) Mom loves your Mom's hat in that picture, too; Mom's got one in pink - she's wearing it in a picture in my latest post, but you can only see the brim, and not the most stylish logo on the front!

*kissey face*

ocmist said...

Boy, Mango, you most definitely got the suds factory working there, didn’t you! Of course, that is fairly good revenge on them for fooling with the feet and ears!

I HATE having my nails done and definitely spend time telling Mom off when she insists on trimming them! The Pedipaws thingy isn’t to bad though… OC

Honey the Great Dane said...

That's some good slobber action you've got going there, Mango - great technique! But I think your pawdicure movie is going to give me nightmares for weeks!

Hsin-Yi loved the picture of those mini-mastiffs - she's still squealing about their wrinkles! :-)
