An Apology, New Chewies, and Baby Birds


Alert readers will notice that I have not been keeping up with commenting on your blogs.

Well, I have a very good reason. You see, I have been having a most amazing and relentlessly huge adventure, yuh, for sure, and it has kept me too busy to do more than scan your posts.

I apologize, but stay tuned tomorrow to see my big adventure and I hope you will forgive my laxness.

In the meantime, today we got to try out antler chewies for the first time. What with me being a full sized doggie, we had to get the super jumbo sized ones.

Ah, poor PeeWee and his tiny little snooter.





Perfect size for the Mango! Must be from an elk or something.




It distresses me hugely to see that there appear to be only two robins in the nest. I know that one egg was laid very late and momma thinks that these two pushed the late comer out of the nest and he was eaten by wild animals. That is sad.




Here is an actual movie of the two little piggies.







Tune in tomorrow!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

We can't wait to read all about your HUGE adventure Mango. We will be up with the lark tomorrow morning to log on and pop across to your blog.

The Robins are gorgeous. such a shame that one did not survive.

Nice chew toy! Perfect for the massive Mango. Dexter looks a bit confused and overwhelmed by it.

It's survival of the fittest for the birds. We're glad none built nests on our porch this year. Last year it was like Wild Kingdom out there.

Have a great Sunday, hope your weather has cooled off!

Nice (HUGE) antlers - haven't seen any that large - who's your supplier, Mango?! Awwww - that is so sad about the third bird - it is definitely gone from its nest.

I'm am looking forward to reading all about your great adventure - keep enjoying those antlers! (Don't WORRY about the comments!)
Hugs xoxo

My pups would enjoy those antlers too.

Sometimes I scan and don't comment too. No biggie. The robins... circle of life.... xoxoxo

Frankie Furter said...

I love my antlers. They are soooo tasty.. especially when dad brings me FRESH ones.

Lola said...

A HUGE adventure would be the only kind for you, Mango. Now you've got me furry curious and I can't wait to find out what it is. You never have to ask to be forgiven for not getting to all the blogs. It's just not always pawssible. We've learned that. However, you simply must read the post I'm putting up today. You don't have to read it today. It'll be there whenever you have time, but it will be a must read for my furiends.

lotsa licks, Lola

BRUTUS said...

Oh yeah!! Mango it was you that introduced me to antlers back during the pay-it-forward game! One of our favorites to date, and Carmen thinks they are great now too :)

Aren't antlers sooo cool? And they don't ever splinter like bones do!
I am a little shocked at how expensive they are, deer aren't THAT hard to find...but as you mentioned, maybe they are elk antlers.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

houndstooth said...

Now I'm on the edge of my seat about this big surprise!

We have a robin's nest right outside our kitchen window and they come back to it every year. Dad likes to watch them from inside. He keeps saying he's going to get a webcam for them!

Hi Mango, I have been a little slack too leaving comments. But I can blame it all on my Mom, which is alwayss fun to do.

I would like to try one of those deer antlers, but I think it would be furry hard to run a deer down in our town. We'll see.

Kisses,
Stella

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Are those antlers tasty??
I will be back to know about your big adventure!
Happy Sunday!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Mango
I think you sent me an antler once. Maybe your mom sneaked it out. We love it and just found the last of one under the couch (which tells you a lot about the kind of cleaning going on here). Maybe you sent two. I can't remember. Hope your adventure includes some yummy food.

Kari in WeHo said...

ooo we want to try antlers here :)

Niamh said...

We can not wait to hear about your relentlessly huge adventure. We'd also like to get our teeth on some of those antlers.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Maggie and Mitch said...

We both love antlerz and we gnaw on them all the time! They are pricey to buy but they last a LONG time!
We can't wait to hear about your big adventure, Mango!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Well, that wasn't very nice. You don't push your unhatched siblings out of the nest. (Or Dexter either, Mango.So don't get any ideas.)

JD and Max said...

Hi Mango - we can't wait to find out about your hoooge adventure! How thrilling - we've been trying to guess but we really have no idea!! We're very envious of you and Dexter - those antlers looked scrummy! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

We can't wait to hear what you've been up to! Glad you are enjoying yourselves some nommie antlers. Tell Momma to be careful. We worry about bird attacks!

Daisy Dog said...

Our momma has been considering getting some atlers, Are they more yummy than nylabones? We can't wait to read about your most excellent adventure!

Marjie said...

Aw, the poor little guy. I have a robin who flies into my porch to visit me. He's just chillin' in Thor World.

Drools,
Thor

Sue said...

We can't have antlers or anything hard because Tsar and Sky have expensive dental work and Mom doesn't want them cracking their caps. So we all have to suffer. We do get other treats on a pretty regular basis so we really can't complain too much.

Oskar said...

Well your adventure sure does sound exciting!

I am very sad to hear about the third baby bird. I was the first born in my litter & I didn't do away with any of my siblings...

Maggie Mae said...

Hi Mango & Dexter!

I'm Maggie Mae, nice to meet you! I have seen you around bloggie land and I hope that we can be furiends too.
Come visit me somtime!

Woofs and Licks,

Wild Dingo said...

that nest looks only big enough for 2. maybe the 3rd one matured faster than the other two, skipped college, got a job and left home early and got a nest of his own. ya, that's the story i think happened and i'm stickin' to that!

elk bones! oh yeah!

Martine said...

Hi Pups! We feel the same way... we have not been keeping up with comments either.

Those new chews are interesting and we are glad they come in extra giant sizes.

dewdana said...

Wow! It has been awhile since you have had an adventure! I can't wait. I have seen those antlers but I am worried moose will break his teeth with his super strong snooter of doom! Do you think really strong labrajaws could bite down hard enough to break teeth on it?
Sorry about your birdie pal :-( Sad.

the booker man said...

whoa, mango, those antler thingies are ginormous! i totally need to get my mama to buy me some of those!!
i am lookin' forward to hearing about your big adventure!
*woof*

Moco said...

We are so glad that you are taking such good care of those birdies.

tula said...

Mango- does your adventure happen inside or outside the force field?! Hmmmm...

Those antlers look interesting. Mango-approved? Might have to try them. You didn't break any teefers eating them?

Toodles,
Tula

achieve1dream said...

Awww they are so cute.

Don't worry about the commenting thing. I think everyone has been a lot busier in the warmer temperatures. :)

ocmist said...

Sorry about your baby bird. (Actually, they are kind of tasty, and we don't know why Grammy has such a fit when we catch one) The people's always feel bad after seeing all the work the parent birds have gone through...

ANTLERS... Those are just SO great!!! We LOVE them and they last a long time around here even with ALL of us taking turns chewing on them! Bet you love yours too, though we wonder where in the world they got one BIG enough for you! The Country Corgi Crew minus Mercy... we can't seem to find her...
