A Break in the Heat Means ACTION TIME!



I can't believe it! We finally got a break in the super hot weathers that we have been having here and man oh man it could not come soon enough for the Mango.

Hey! Do your humans hoard your toys?

Yuh, like remember when I had my Caesar? Well, momma's work friends gave me a get better pressie and momma did not even give it to me until yesterday. Can you imagine? She is all like "oh Mango, you have too many toys" As if!

Check it out. A rope thing with a red middle.







Let go woman!








Whoops. Used to be round. Guess it is no match for the Mango Jaws of Doom!







Hey! How did that happen?








Must recover happy fun times toy for the Mango!









See that? A Mango blur I tell you. I am just so super fast that the PeeWee does not know what happened.








Neener, neener, neener.








Not again!








This calls for super bitey face action smack down! MY TOY! MY TOY!







Wow! That felt great! I thought I would never have the energy to run again.

Check out my super cooler weather action movie here.






Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. You remember when I was plotting how to collect labrasteam to channel to momma so she has more energy for the Mango? Well, alert reader, Cheyenne, sent me this actual document which details how to go about with the steam gathering.

I liked it so much I asked momma to frame it and hang it in the dog cave for me to study.






Can you read it? You might need to bigify.

The instructions are most complex requiring mirrors and vats of steam and collection things and whatnot, but I am up for it. I just need to wait for the next time momma and master abandon us and watch out, let the labrasteam collection commence.

Whoa, that toy looks like fun! There is never such a thing as too many toys! I wish there was a break in the hot weather here. The high yesterday was 105! I felt like the sun was 10 feet above my head! Love the play pics, especially the bitey-face game!

Niamh said...

Excellent smackdown Mango! The nerve of the labradork to steal your new toy. Our person has been known to hide toys from us. But we have figured out that they live on the top of the refrigerator where we can't reach them. Glad you are enjoying the cooler weather.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

What great fun!! Maybe that's why she waited to give it to you? This way you felt good and it was cooler? (My mom always makes excuses like that.)

Our Mom thinks it's scary when we play bitey-face - we can't imagine how she would act if she saw you guys playing bitey-face!!

Mom just cleaned out my toy box... now I only have about 20 left! Can you imagine? That's not counting all my stuffies that sleep with me but then those are really toys...

Tank said...

Those instructions for gathering dog steam are a hoot. It must be a truly magic elixer to be able to cure so many ailments. BOL

twobarkingdogs said...

Dog Steam - Sounds like a good name for a new beer, or cleaning product!

Heather and Ellie said...

The coolness is wonderful! Not much like August, but hey, I'm not complaining. That looks like a very fun toy.

Dr. Blewett would be very happy to know that his brilliance was actually framed. I don't believe the poor guy got anything more than ridicule when he made those directions, but now he has a picture of it on the internet.

rottrover said...

mango man! we were most impressed with your use of the famous rottweiller playing technique known as stand-there-next-to-the-toy while the labradork does all the running in circles. your form is most excellent!!

We are SO glad that your weather has cooled down! The movie was great, it's nice to see you running around, and showing the Pee Wee who's boss.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Great toy you got there, Mango. You and PeeWee should play tug with it, wonder who would win? ;-)

No such thing as a cool down here in Kansas - it just keeps getting hotter and hotter. We need to move.

Samantha said...

Nice new toy, Mango - looks as if Dexter goes zoomies (loved the steam-making article!) if he doesn't get to have it! But you are a very nice dog to let your bro play with it, I must woof, although it was also good to see you take it back! Hope it stays cooler for you now -

I do believe your Momma will be happy to utilize the Labrasteam. Please do be careful when collecting it, so you do not become injured!

Drools,

houndstooth said...

We had a break from the heat here this weekend, too! It was glorious! We got out and hiked our tails off.

Dexter, I am amazed by your bravery! You really never let up on the RH, do you? I'd hate to see what would happen to someone you don't like!

Lola said...

Our weather has been so nice that I agreed to play zoomies and hide and pounce with Franklin outside instead of the living room. Isn't it nice to have some energy?? Nice toy, Mango. Keep a close eye on it, if you know what I mean.

I can't believe that someone already has a method for collecting dog steam. I very much look forward to seeing how that work out for you.

lotsa licks, Lola

Stella said...

The Dog Steam collection thing is very interesting, isn't it? That drawing of the woman looks like Marge Simpson with her hair in the air. I think you ought to be careful if it does this to you.

Kisses,
Stella

I tried to watch that movie but you moved TOO FAST for me to keep up. Just beautiful blurry stripes and sharky teeth.

Agatha and Archie said...

Don't get too used to this FBNULOUS weather as they are predicting WICKED PISSA HOT WEATHER for tomorrow...Archie is off at Target trying to get us some of those jelly bean things. They would be a lot of fun to use down the hall.. Love A+A

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I see the other beaWOOtiful Kira/Khyra wants to see woo on a jelly bean too!

Don't get too used to the khooler weather - wikhked hots are returning...

Looks to me like Pee Wee is the one hording your toys not your mom. I'm glad someone is having cooler weather....it is so hot here it even makes ME pant! Imagine that!

Dozer and Coop said...

We're almost afraid to ask where your Mum is getitng these recipes..where are you letting her hang out? We imagine it involves a dark alley somewhere...nice bitey face picture Mango! We gots some cool weather too and Mum is getting off her fat a** and taking us for walks again. Honestly, it is all we can do to keep the woman within her BMI window - she'll be as big as Texas if she didn't have us to move her.

Love, Dozer and Cooper

Lorenza said...

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

Most excellent moving-as-a-blur photo!!! And great bitey-face - way to keep the little mutt in his place!!! Mom is most impressed with the collecting of dog steam document. She is going to study it closely and use Abby as her test subject. Heehee!

Life With Dogs said...

I think every dog in new England spent the weekend engaged in zoomies. What a beautiful break! :)

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Mango, we are furry glad to know that you are feeling betters and that your weather is nicer. Our has been 98% humidity, 70 dewpoint and night temps in the 70s. Momma says we can't go out to play until it gets better out there. She said it is not good for dogs in fur coats to run around out there now so we stay inside with the ice machines in the windows.

Noah the Airedale said...

D is always hording our toys. She says that the girls will rip them to shreds so she puts them away in a safe place.
Glad the horrid heat has left you for a bit. Hopefully it wont come back in a hurry.

Priscilla said...

Hi Mango!
Thanks for visiting our blog :)
The rope thing with red in the middle is such an awesome toy! And those toys belong to you! Good job getting them back from the labrastealer!

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Glad you had a break from the heat. It was delightful to be able to have some action time. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

Wow, that labrasteam article deserves to be framed for sure! Imagine that! And here I thought MangoMom had just made it all up.

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Could you send the heat break down south for a bit? It's supposed to be 100 today with the heat index of 110!!! We may never get to play outside again!!

Love the instructions for the labrasteam collection!!

Woofs and Kisses!

Thank you guys sooo much for posting about Atlas... Paws crossed they can find him soon. Unfortunately he was not lost from home, he had been at a dog sitters house!!! So he has NO idea where he is. He is from Natick, so he is a LONG way from home...

Mango, Thanks for visiting us. You would love where we live in the mountains above Los Angeles. We have several flocks of peacocks and we have streams to cool off in!

Your new toy looks cool!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh my God, Mango - that picture of you doing super-bitey face with all your teeth flashing...that's gonna give me nightmares!! :-)

You're lucky you just have one other dog to keep an eye on. I have nine others that try to steal my toys.

Mango, I'm on my way to watch the video. I can't believe my own bug eyes. You actually sprinted!

ocmist said...

We used to have a toy like than only about half that size. Ours didn't fair to well though during a Tug-a-war game. :(

My, we didn't know you could be so fast. You were really a BLUR there at times Mr. Mango! Guess you showed Dexter a thing or two, huh! With all that running, we think Dexter was probably putting off a little steam without all those extra steps! The CCC
