My Big Adventure Begins!

Welcome to my most relentlessly huge and big adventure. An adventure so big, it will take five whole days to tell! We can begin...

It all started innocently enough. I, Mango, decided that as long as it was going to be super hot, I might as well be hot someplace more fun than my boring estate with just stupid PeeWee to amuse me.

So I was thrilled when Dennis the Vizsla Dog invited me to his estate for a holiday.

I decided to bring along my good pal and fellow full sized doggie, El'bow, for company and figured Miss Tula could do with a trip as well. Sure, PeeWee too, why not?

Soon we were enjoying the sunshine by the pool and having a most happy time.

Unbeknownst to me, Dennis had also invited Miss Mercy who, for reasons that I cannot comprehend, seems to have developed a bit of a crush on stupid PeeWee.

Can't imagine what she sees in him, but I suppose the little black wishing he were bigger dude appreciated the attentions.

But my reverie was short lived as no sooner had I rubbed in five gallons of SPF 652 sun block, then who should show up but Tanner and Tank?

Tanner was most agitated having apparently just witnessed a most alarming site which I will relate to you thusly.

Tanner was just flying around, minding his own business as he is wont to do when he spotted something peculiar and requiring closer inspection.

Donning his cloak of invisibility, he zoomed in for a closer look and discovered THIS!

Why it is none other than Miss Khyra, but what ho? I thought that she went out every weekend in the Xterra to rescue orphan dogs, but there appears to be extra cargo strapped to the roof.

Yes, friends, cargo with suspicious and disturbing labels alluding to my Mango-ness.

No sooner had she driven out of site, then Chrome and Zep came plodding up the highway with Twink and Frankie riding high on even more crates. These, too, having contraband implying labels.

Alert readers will be asking themselves, "Hey, Mango, how did Tanner take those photos if he was all flying around in space like that?"

I will tell you, he most certainly did NOT take those photos. No, the little spy was being spied upon by Tank who was out combing the countryside for squirrels.

Tank flagged Tanner down and they agreed to wait until dark descended to creep ever closer to the caravan and make discoveries.

After nightfall, they did just that, ever closer, ever closer, until nearly upon the xterra which they illuminated in a blaze of glory to be confronted by a site, oh pups, cover your eyes, a sight so horrifying that I can barely look at it in digitals.

AAAAHHHHH! It is Iron Dog Loki guarding the xterra. When did he take up with Miss Khyra? Can this be the result of his get in the car training?

Tanner and Tank barely made it away with their small selves.

No wonder Tanner is so upset.

What does it all mean? What should the Mango do next? Stay tuned...

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Nice pool! and I love your relentlessly huge green hat, Mango!

Nice hat Mango. Tanner is amazing. Wish I could figure out how to fly about the place without wings.

Lola said...

Mango, this is the summer blockbuster mini-series of the season! I'm sure of it. I can't wait for the next installment. You look great in your adventure dog hat. I bet Tula was impressed, too.

Also thank you for your advice and encouragement as regards to the little brother situation. I'm going to need that kind of support and it helps.

lotsa licks, Lola

I left nose smudges on my puter screen. Will not move until I know what happens next. Mom will need to bring my bed and food in here.

In for a real long sit/stay session,

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...


This does indeed appear to be the most important event of Summer 2010

Much better than that silly football game that has just finished.

Really looking forward to the next installment.

Busby and Raymond said...

Wow! We're on the edge of our seats waiting for part two!

Sam and Pippen said...

This adventure looks a bit scary... you'll warn us if we should close our eyes, right?

Pearl said...

Oh my goodness, Mango!

This is a relentlessly huge adventure! You look oh-so-handsome lounging by the pool.

I am nervous as to what will happen next. What with your DNA being in the picture, something makes me think that LACIE might be involved. Sounds like her usual shenanigans!!!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

It's no wonder they felt the need to re-release AvahTahr with more scenes -

They are in fear of Mango's Big Adventure!

Pawesome stuff!

PeeEssWoo: Those Mango Flavoured Furs are the nekhtar of the dogs!

Tucker said...

Why is no one swimming? If it's so hot why aren't you all in the water? I'm suprized Dexter isn't all crazy splashin' round in there.

woof - Tucker

Gus said...

Scarey Stuff Mango. I hope you can solve the Myhstery.


Joe Stains said...

Omdog this what happens when I nap all day! Dude, tanner has to take that demented looking fish with him everywhere! I cannot believe khyra is trafficing mango ness around with those orphan pups. If you could maybe just keep tanner there that would be super fabulous and I would send you some bacon or pizza or something.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Oh My Dog - what a fun time you had at the pooly.

Samantha said...

Wow - a lot is going on here - we are glued to our computer set too and can't wait for the next installment. We are furry scared but intrigued about Miss K - what the dog is she up to now? Will tune in tomorrow. My goodness!

BRUTUS said...

Someone better empty that pool filter every night or it'll be clogged with all your furs!!

Brutus the Frenchie

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

We are waiting with baited (hey... we had salmon for dinner last night...otherwise it would be bated) breath to see what happens! (And we are equally bummed that Dennis didn't invite us, too. We've always wanted to hang out in a pool with a bunch of shedders... Heehee.)

Have fun!

Your pal,


Wild Dingo said...

WOWZA! Khyra was certainly using her noodle hiring a cracker insane dog to guard the Mango Furs! For as cracked up as Loki is, he loves to do what he's told. (goody two-shoes) Guard the furs? Check! Act cracker when someone tries to infultrate the x-terra? HOOOGE Check!

This is an amazing adventure! I will read tomorrows and wed's but unfortunately will catch up on the rest next week.

5 gallons of SPF 652? Why are you being so conservative? ;)

The Airechicks said...

OMDog -

Wouldn't you know Mom would forget the use the DVR on the computer....

Can't wait for the next installment....

That Loki looked like a REALLY scary big dog jumping out at Tanner & Tank like that.....

We know Lacie is the bad behind the scary....We thought she was grounded.....

Dexter better watchout or he'll be hitched....


ocmist said...

OH, MY GOODNESS!!! So THAT'S where Mercy is! We've been looking all over for her. She's had such a crush on "That Sexy, gleaming hunk of dog" as she calls him for several weeks now, but we didn't know that she would sneak off with him! Please keep an eye on her, Mango! She's a trouble maker... or always seems to get herself into trouble...
Mercy's Mama, Dott

BG: Wow! This looks like a BIG ADVENTURE for sure, Mango, and a Mystery, too!!!

ocmist said...

Mercy: I'm sorry, I lied to you, Mr. Mango, and said I had permission to come, but I just couldn't turn down this great opportunity to come and get to meet, Dexter (swoon) in person!

Thank you for letting me stay. I promise to be good...

(Besides... they took everyone else to the beach but me and it wasn't FAIR!!!)

Kari in WeHo said...

oh wow what an adventure so far! can't wait to see whats going to happen the next couple days

HoundDogMom said...

Mango, that looks like the coolest adventure. We are curious as to why there is no picture of you on the raft in the pool. Are you afraid you would get your hat wet? The Hounddogs

Anonymous said...

That looks like so much fun!!! I would love to have Tanners flying abilities... Then I could just fly over to you guys and join in! Me loves the water! But I have never been in a pool!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hee! Hee! My favourite bits were the typically blank mastiff expressions on your and El'bow's face throughout the whole thing...I can relate to that! :-)

Most alarming that your mangoness has been packaged up for what could only be nefarious reasons! Good thing you have another full sized doggie there in case the crap hits the fan! Can't wait for the next installment!

Martine said...

We hope the rest of your adventure is FANTASTIC!
