Momma Likes PeeWee Best - I KNOW IT!

I am sorry to report that Koi Agatha succumbed to her wounds and has joined Miss Snickers over the Rainbow Bridge.

Before you start reading, get yourself over to El'bow's special birthday blog contest. You only have until his real birthday which is July 27th (whenever that happens in Belgium) to vote for your favorite El'bow greetings. It is great to be sending you to a happy making thing after all the sad news this weekend.

Yesterday I showed you a photo of the muttonheaded doofus face labradork biting my snooter.

There appears to have been a shift in his attitude and let me tell you something...





I, Mango, am so freaking pissed off that it isn't funny. Why? Because it has become increasingly obvious to me that momma likes stupid PeeWee better than she likes the Mango. How do I know this? Well, consider...

On Thursday morning I got no walkies, no playtime, nothing, nadda, but the midget went to daycare. OK, fine, but momma totally PROMISED to do something FUN with me when she got home from the work place.

Now even though it was (finally) raining, I was still up for some mastiff action and I beckoned to her from my Observation Deck.






But would she come out and play? NOOOOOO!

Instead, well, look at the manipulative little devil all sitting in the dry spot. He was crying about how nervous he gets about doing his business in the yard and begging her to oh super please walkie him lest he explode and guess what.... she DID!




And then she and Master took off for parts unknown and left me home alone with his smug labraself.

So next day, Friday, I was delighted when Momma announced that she was staying home from the work place. I mean, that means Mango time, right? WRONG! She spent the WHOLE DAY doing the housework and then at the end of the day she took that annoying pointy headed creature on another walkie. Just him! No me!

She says, "Oh Mango! It is too hot to walkie you, but we can do some target practice to give you some exercise and stimulate your mentals."

Target practice? Are you kidding me? Any of you ever have to do this crap?

Yuh, it is all like, "Mango touch the ball."







Get a cookie...





"Mango, touch the ball" You can see I was getting a bit frustrated here. I AM TOUCHING IT ALREADY! WHEN DO WE WALKIE?




Come on, woman! Enough with the touchy feely training.





She even made a movie of my alleged exercise which you can watch for yourself here and see how it is no substitute for walkies. No way. Plus could she have possibly chosen more annoying music? That was no Mango melody.

Oh please love the Mango.

But no, even cute face did not work.

Oh the abuse!






But that isn't the worst, nope, not by a long shot.

Saturday morning is time for Mango to go to skool, right? WRONG! She took the PeeWee to MY skool and used MY time slot to play with him. I mean, WTF? Did I work hard to get into graduate skool so that the stumpy chow hound could spend quality time showing off and getting hot dogs (not to mention the nommy carrots that Norwood always brings for ME).


Then Saturday night it happened again. I kid you not. Momma is all, "I am going to walk Dexter to make sure he is empty because he sometimes doesn't want to do his business in the yard."

Hey lady! You have me confused with somebody else. Who cares if the leg crossing compulsive can't find a place to pee little monster doesn't go potty? WHAT ABOUT MANGO?

But my cries fell on deaf ears and then we were abandonded AGAIN and Momma and Master did not get home until totally the middle of the night. As if!

And just look at this face. Don't think he doesn't know that he is momma's most favorite doggie now ever. Sheesh.







And what of the Mango, the bubba, momma's snuggle pal?

Forgotten.

Abandonded.

Neglected.

Unloved.






Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Anybody else addicted to the Really Annoying Orange? My idiot momma is and so are the uber geeks she works with. Simple minds, simple minds...

Oh yeah, and Momma wants your opinion. We eat supper around 4:30 and then usual have our potty run and hour later so if she is planning on abandoning us (again) from 4:30 - 8:00 PM should we eat before or after she is gone and not here and not paying attention to ME or loving ME?

Oh Mango Man, Loki's got your back on that music thing. I was watching the video and every time it played, he groaned. when i shut it off, he stopped. put it on, he groaned. sigh. Mango man, you need to come to camp Wild Dingo where the weather is mangolishous and perfect for walking The Mango. L&J would love to make a spot (ok 3 spots put together) for you...

maybe it's time to make your momma jealous...

Peppy Sheppys said...

What about Mango indeed. How could she resist that face that you so lovingly lathered up?

sheps w/pep and otis.

ps. That orange thing is kind of terrifying. Maybe your mom just likes annoying things. Like Dexter.

3 doxies said...

Haves you thoughts about trading your mom in fur a different model? I haves threatened dat befores and it ALWAYS gets me what I want...okays, it really doesn't but I likes to pretend sometimes.

And sorry but dat little annoying orange video was HILARIOUS...bwhahahahaha!

Niamh said...

Does your momma think you are some kind of circus dog Mango? We can see that she is abusing you by making you touch that ball repeatedly. You should notify the MSPCA immediately! And all this time given to labradorky little brothers has got to stop. You should definitely come to live with me and I will send Ambrose to live at your estate and your momma can make him target the ball to weird music. I would not let her watch that bizarre orange thing anymore.

Your friend,
Niamh

Priscilla said...

Oh Mango! We're so sorry your momma is taking more care of PeeWee than she is of you! Just think that you're so well behaved you don't need to go to training class anymore! I'm sure there are some reasons as to why momma had to do more stuff with the labraself!

Lola said...

I think you need to go on strike. Now what is it that you do that you can stop doing until this situation is rectified? I don't think that your Mom could possibly love anyone more than you, Mango. She's probably just failing to consider your delicate feelings when making decisions that seem practical to her. That must stop immediately!

As far as the question - I don't really know. It all depends on individual capacity to hold it. Feeding earlier is nice because then there's not so much need to go out late at night, but if it's a problem holding on until she comes home then it's so not worth it.

lotsa licks, Lola

Rebecca and Daisy Mae said...

Mango -
I'm sorry your Mum is ignoring you and loving on your labradork brother. Maybe if you do something to get her attention... like pee on her floor, or bark at her really loud, or ... or eat that silly ball she kept making you touch. Maybe then she will understand.
Good luck getting your Mums attention.
Daisy Mae

Bouncing Bertie said...

Gail here: Mango I am going to be straight with you and tell you the same thing that I would tell Bertie. Whining and self pity are unattractive traits in both human and dog and I suggest you quit all the complaining and start seeing your cup as half full (of Mango suds of course).

Bertie here: you can see I have a harsh mistress...

The Thuglets said...

Mango Matie..we just think you are one handsome dude.

Just lay back and put yer paws up and enjoy the rest when the little un is taken walkies!

we like your ball, but not sure about the workout.

Wasssabi!!! Mango Man,
Sorry you is not feeling the luv from your momma, maybe you should sit on hers, that would get her attention. ;)

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

Hi Mango

Try not to feel so down. We are pawsitive your Mum loves you, just take advantage of your relaxing days. I mean do you really want to go running about all over the place in the heat when you could relax in the cool of the house.

Just ask for something to chew on to pass away the hours.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Heather and Ellie said...

Poor Mango! That sad face at the end is so heartbreakingly cute. I hope you get some walkies once the weather cools down.

I don't know about the feeding time....the only thing I can think of with giving the dogs dinner at 8PM, is that they might start getting anxious while you're gone waiting for you to come home so they can have dinner. But it's also possible they could be fine with this arrangement. It just depends on the dog.

Mack said...

Mango,
You are such a smart dude! That video proves it! And I am sure momma is not abandoning you, she just wants to be super careful about walking you in this heat.

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Woos Mango Man! I think that woo should be very upset. After all taking the dork to your school without woo!!!! The horrors!!!!! Maybe woo need to ignore the mom fur a while and not do any tricks, work on you sad Mango face, and look very sad, that usually works.
As fur the dinner thingy, Mom makes us wait until she gets home, just in case..

Tucker said...

Ah Mango,
You can comes lives wif me. But, you needs to bring your own couch cause there isn't enough room on mine. Plus you won't have to deal with Dexter and you can help me chase Evil kitty Brother.

woof - Tucker

Oh Pee S. - Can you eats at 3:00 instead?

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

really annoying orange has me rolling on the floor. nice video Mango--but i think momma loves you equal!

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

We ALL LOVE YOU, MANGO!!!!!!! And that would include your Mom too. We're sure about that. Absolutely, totally CERTAIN!

tula said...

hey next time text FADT 911. Fun Auntie Dee time STAT! woo don't need your momma to funtimes. just sayin.

The Army of Four said...

Oh, Mr. Mango! You poor, poor little guy! You should come out here and we'll make sure you get all KINDS of extra walkies and cookies and playtime! Of course, it's hotter than you-know-where and you have to walk at 6 in the morning, but that's OK!
Love,
Ammy

Sue said...

gee Mango, we sympathize. Our Mom will only let us stay outside for a few minutes at a time. She says it's too hot, and she puts some smelly lotion on some of us to keep us from burning. Humans can be so silly sometimes.

The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

You know Mango, we have a pretty big estate that needs a BIG dog to run it - are you up for a new job? It pays kibbles!! And an occasional piece of bacon. And our Mom doesn't go to that work place either.

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

Amber and Nala said...

Ahhh Mango, what a rip off but I am sure your Momma loves you and Dexter the same. In fact, even though it's hard to imagine she may even love YOU more...that's why she makes sure you don't walkie when it's too hot. ;) I know you will get to walk soon with just your Momma. Hang in there big guy. As for the dinner, Mom feeds me a little early if she has to go somewhere, but I always go potty right after so she doesn't worry about that. I guess it depends on your potty habits. Maybe a snack or a tiny bit of food in a maze ball before and then have a later dinner? Good luck!

Kisses,
Nala

Tank said...

You're getting totally screwed over Mango. Maybe you could sit on Momma until she promises to change her ways??

Orange video was a hoot!

(I would get fed about an hour or so before they plan to go & get a walk right before they leave... I couldn't possibly wait till 8:00 to eat my dinner. I would die.)

rottrover said...

Oh Mango Man. We're sure you don't remember, but you were scary-sick not too long ago. I think your momma loves you even more than Pee-Wee because she is keeping you calm and not overheated or over excited. She loves you sooo much she's willing to NOT give you what you want. (Hey, there's three of us. We never feel like we get enough loves!) Our mom was laughing at the orange thingy instead of taking us for a walk!!
BTW we always have to wait for them to get home before we eat...You 'da man Mango! Gizmo, Bart and Ruby.

hero said...

Sometimes those hoomans need re-booting and everything will be as normal... I'm sure momma loves you heaps, just that PeeWee's needs are different at times.

Licks, hero

The Two Country Poodles & Uncle Puppy said...

Mango...Bubba...Poor Baby! The music for your video was unMangolike (how do you like that word?). It even made Lolly Pop twist her head! As per the orange video....Hmmm...are the labraslobbers getting to your momma?

Butchy, Katie, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby, Hootie said...

Hey Mango,
We get our supper at 3PM. Why not try that? Then you could walk a bit before your Mama leaves. Better to eat earlier then later for your tummy too.
Now you know your Mama loves you dearly. She doesn't walk you in the heat cause she is worried about your health. You don't want to get heat stroke do you? Dogs can get it very easily. I Butchy ALMOST got it one time. We went for walkies in a nice state park, it was sort of hot, but cloudy, and very high humidity. We didn't realize that the hoooomity was getting to me. I started with the foaming at the mouth, bloody diahrearrrrr, vomiting, so they rushed me to the nice cold trout stream. Best thing they did for me. Ahhhhh, I cooled off very fast. Now go give your Mama extra kissies ok???
Wirey Hugs, Purrz & Licks,

PS Thank you so much for praying for Koi Agatha. It means a lot to us.

Samantha said...

Oh so sad about Koi Agatha - will visit their blog. And Mango, YOU poor soul - we feel your pain. I'm with the three doxies; maybe a trading-in deal would work for you. My goodness yes - that was rather jarring moosik for your wonderful touch movie. You ARE very talented, Mango. And... I think you should get to eat at 4:30 as well as later, but not Peewee. Hows about that?

dewdana said...

What a travesty! I could tell in target practice it looked like you had stored up some labra steam the way you were bouncing around! Sorry big guy!
I know you pups will disagree but I would wait until later for dinners. I used to feed Moose right as I left to help keep him busy and happy for a bit but then decided A. he likes to poo about an hour later and if it were me I would not want to wait forever til I could go out (even though he *can* hold it) and B. a friend of mine's dog bloated recently and although I don't think it is necessarily going to happen right after they eat, for some reason thinking about that made me realize that it might be best (when possible) to be home for a bit after he eats. Probably paranoid...
I would love to know the average time between onset of noticeable bloat signs and when they last ate... anyone?

Those Elgin Pugs said...

Busby and Raymond said...

We're wondering if the heat there in Taxachewsets is getting to your Mom? Or maybe it's the "change of life"? Yes, that's it. Middle aged crisis? She obviously is a bit off right now. Try to be patient with her.

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Oh Mango!!! That's horrible!!! We've got to put our paws together and figure out a solution to your problem!

Woofs and Kisses!

Tessa the Maltese said...

No Mango really it isn't so! Your Mom LOVES Mango Man the BEST!!!!

Really she does. She wants you to REST dude! She is scared that you will have more Ceasers! Be patient dude and ChilLax Dude!!!
This will give you a chance to get better see. Then just when the PeeWee thinks he is the Momma's Boy, BANG you jump up all well and kick his little butt out of the way and Take Over Mango Man Style!!!

Dude, as far as the "cute face did not work." No wonder it didn't with all that slobber!!! BOL

woo woos, Tessa

Sam said...

So sorry you are feeling slighted, Mango. Parents get the busies sometimes, and perhaps that is why things seem lopsided between you and PeeWee.

Hoping the issue resolves itself soon!

Kari in WeHo said...

you can come move in with us Mango.

Don't forget, we are now located at dogisgodinreverse.com

Oh Mango you can come to our house anytime. The is truly doggie abuse.. Come on over and we can go to the lake and have some real fun...

Zona said...

Mango! That is just awfuls. Did you call ASPCA for some advice on how to deal with your mom's favoritism??

I have to say I really enjoyed your exercise video though!

Wags,
Zona

Maggie and Mitch said...

Your mom loves you - truly she does, Mango!
Mom and dad eat at 4:30 too and we eat at 3! If we had to wait, we would perish, honest!
That really annoying orange stuff is very strange!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

houndstooth said...

Oh wow! Mango, you've got it really rough! My sympathies! It's not Dexter's fault that your mama is so neglectful of the Mango, though. I thought you were going to just sit on that ball and end the torture in that video!

We've never heard of Really Annoying Orange, but we did laugh a lot!

If Mom and Dad have to be gone at dinnertime, they ususally at least offer us dinner before they leave and if we don't, they might put it up and offer it to us when they get back.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Mango, we feel for you. We don't get many walks when it is this hot either, but at least it applies to all of us. We hope you get that cooler weather so you can get some Momma attention. We must say that you did seem to be having fun getting rewarded for touching the silly ball:)

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Chloe and Libby said...

I'm sure your mommy loves you both the same. I loved watching you run about in your video and the music was great.
Smooches,
Chloe

the booker man said...

awww, mango, even my kinda partial labraself can see that you aren't getting enough mama time. maybe you should just go climb into her lap?
woof to your mama that when my parents go away near our super time, they usually give us a snack and then feed us supper when they get home. that way me and asa don't have to worry about needing to go poopers when they aren't here.
*woof*

Lorenza said...

Mango!
I think it is time to have a serious talk with your mom!
Hmmm... I guess it would be better to wait until she comes back but make you she leaves some treats to make the waiting time easier!

Keisha said...

O hai. I like to go outside too. :)

monica said...

On no Mango - living the life of momma neglection!! How can she?! A Mastiff is NOT to be neglected, and for sure not to be put BEHIND a labradudes needs or whatever! Stand up for your rights!! ( do some peeing in the night again - that sure got her attention...) :o))

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

It's totally unfair the way your momma treats you from what I read in this post.
I would call SPCA Mango.
Wanna replace your momma, come to my mansion, you'll be the King!
Would you prefer flying to Texas or simply getting on a Greyhound Bus?
Cheers!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

hello mango its dennis the vizsla dog hay tucker sez it is always better to eet sooner rather then later!!! plus then their is the possibility that mama wil forgit she fed yoo alreddy and feed yoo agin!!! ok bye

road-dog-tales said...

Mango Man - you are really have a tough time lately! Totally unfair, we say! Although some of us totally sympathize - Cooper gets to play more than the rest of us because he's really young and energetic and would tear the house up if he didn't. Maybe that's what's going on in your house? You're just too well behaved. Maybe you should start acting out. You know what they say - the squeaky wheel gets the oil. Or, in your case, the big dog that pees in the house gets more walks! BOL
Hmmm, about the dinnertime - you should get to eat a little before and after if you're going to get ignored like that! We're just saying . . .

mayziegal said...

Oh, poor, poor, POOR Mango! I do feels ever so sorry for you. But you're the oldest doggie kid you know. And (according to my momma), the oldest always gets the short stick when a new brudder or sister comes along. Have you thoughts about maybe faking another Ceasar just to gets her attention. (Um, remember - not a REAL one. A fake one.) You definitely got the drool thing going for you.

Wiggles & Wags,
Mayzie

Joe Stains said...

Seriously dude, and Dexter isn't even FLAT?! WTF is right. As for advice if the humans are going out we get a 'snack' which is just like a tiny bit of our dinner, then the rest when they get home.

Mango. the only course of action at your disposal is one VERY LARGE STAIN.

Trust me.

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

Oooh! I would SO be miffed if I were you; how could your Mom POSSIBLY love the labradork more than yourself?!? You can always come live with us - then Abby would most certainly be 3rd in line for lovings! I'm just saying...

HoundDogMom said...

Oh Mango, you have seriously had a rough week. We hope there will be more Mango time for you soon. HDM is all caught up on your blog and the B-Day video was priceless of course and went sent our drools to lots of your friends who are going through rough times. Thanks for keeping us updating on these guys. The Hounddogs.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Eeuw, Mango - I agree with you about the weird music on your video...but it was great to see you so bouncy and happy - especially after your seizure last week!

As for all the special time you've been missing out on...aw, I think you should cut your Momma some slack. It's good she's still doing stuff with you, even if she can't take you for a walk (although I do think missing school sucks!) - I have just had (yet another!) new neighbour doggies move in on our other side and the poor things are kept in the garden ALL DAY with no entertainments, nothing, and their humans never seem to do anything with them or let in the house...what is the point of having doggies then??!! Hsin-Yi is so upset watching them...and gosh, if we thought Molly was noisy...these two HOWL all the time, as well as bark! They are 2 Labradorks - a brown and black - and nice doggies but such a sad way for them to live! SO be glad with your own humans and be glad you don't live in Australia where a lot of people still seem to think dogs should be kept outside like a garden shed!! :-(

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane
