I Open Presents - AT LAST!

You might notice me posting more this week and actually reading and commenting more too. Why? Because Momma is on VACATION! Hooray! And she is spending it HERE with ME (and the squirt, sigh). Of course she has BIG PLANS for getting "stuff" accomplished but so far all she has managed to do is clean half the house and sit around watching season four of Dexter on DVD (which I thought would be a mind numbing series on black labradorks, but I actually found kind of riveting). I am not bothered. I say, goof off, enjoy, that is what vacation is for, right?

At the beginning of the summer which was totally MONTHS ago, Jake and Fergi came all the way to the Commonwealth of Master Chew Sits.

Sadly, due to scheduling issues, I was unable to meet them, but they did send me this wonderful gift package via the Norwood Mobile transport.

The lazy old witch finally opened the package to reveal a bounty. Foodables, toys...

And little round things with our faces inside of them (yeah, there is one of PeeWee too, but don't forget whose blog this is).

Then momma showed me this fancy pants new treat bag that she got bought JUST FOR ME from Miss Kylie's pal at Cody's Creations (and if you haven't shopped there yet, get yourself over there because she has collars and leashes and stuff in all different cool patterns).

Yuh, and remember when I had my Caesar like way back in July? Well, Mack sent me an awesome get well card along with a cool sticker for my Mastiff Mobile.

Hey! Does that say Asstiff? I have been assured that the M is most clear without the reflection of the flashy beast. Well, I should hope so! Humph!

Last but not least, a strange yet curiously fun times object from Baby Rocket and Hootie just because they LOVE me! Well, who doesn't?

Can you believe the bounty that momma has been hoarding from me? Time to break it all out and have some action!

Those little cheeseburger stuffies were pretty fun, albeit smallish. Of course PeeWee was all like, "Look at me! I can fly and catch it in the air!" Ho hum, big deal.

I can catch it without moving. How about that for being a clever and athletic chap?

Hmmm.... something wrong with this picture.

Fear not, I recaptured both burgers and strategically positioned them where midgets dare not tread.

"Look, ma, I have two ba--- um, CHEESEBURGERS!"

Super Relentlessly Huge thanks to my pals for their cool pressies.

Oh wait! What action fun time post would be complete without a super movie?

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

I do love it when you write your posts.
They are way funnier than the labradork's!!!

You must be a happy 'm'astiff with all those new awesome toy-sies!
I especially love the new hamburgers and when you guarded them so safely in the 'private- tresspassers will be prosecuted' zone!

hero said...

Spending time with vacationing mom is the bestest... and what more when there's so many pawsome toys to play with... momma sure knows when to bring them out, doesn't she? You're quite a good catcher, Mango, without moving too, I'm impressed.

Licks, hero

Two Pitties in the City said...

Those are some great presents! It's nice you can be so patient about it.

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

A staycation is the only way to really relax during a vacation. And there's nothing better than couch potatoing in front of the TV with the poochies--sounds heavenly! Mango, I am SO envious of your humongo yard. It's about 30 times the size of our yard--and that's both the front yard and the back yard put together!! No exaggeration.

Kari in WeHo said...

Those are some awesome pressies! I love the mastiff sticker :)

Mack said...

Dude, I am so glad you like your astiff sticky!!BOL!!

Great pressies! We hope you have LOTS of fun time with your momma now that she's on her vacation. And that she has time to RELAX and not only fix stuff, 'cause that's what vacations are for.

Great post, Mango - Mom needs to stay on vacation for a while. We LOVE your posts. Great pressies you got there. And yes, we knew you have two ba---, but it was nice of you to remind us:)

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Marjie said...

Well, tell your momma to take vacations more often! You deserve the fun times!


Bouncing Bertie said...

Well aren't you just the lucky one Mango. Not just all those absolutely splendid pressies but a Momma who uses her vacaction to provide extra blogging support (and not just go off and do selfish things like attending parties in England and locking me up in prison for the duration...)
Toodle pip!
Bertie (who is feeling really rather jealous this evening)

pam said...

That no movin waitin for the cheeseburger to hit yer mouf catch is spectacular. Why waste all that energy runnin around and stuff?

The PeeWee could learn him a thing or two or three from the Mango.

My mom is a hoarder too. She has this thing called "the pantry" for her loot.
Mango, you really touched me with your last comment on my blog (the one where I was injured by evil kitten). I'm grateful to know that you'd stand up for me. You're a true pal and I won't forget. It's okay that you turned me down as a woman, at least you care a bit.
A Happy Twinkie

Sue said...

Wow, you got a whole lot of loot for not doing anything at all. Nice work, big guy.

We used to have one of those cheeseburger stuffies, but Morgan thought it was the real thing and ate it.

Benny and Lily said...

Wow Mango you sure did make out with all those foodables and prizes. Don't forget to share with the Pee Wee monster. Have fun playing. Hey don't swallow that thing!
Benny & Lily

Pearl said...

Mango you got some awesome toys! Everybody loves the Mango!

(ok, ok... you too PeeWee.)

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

Hey Mango,
Those are such pawsome prezzies from Jake & Fergi. You're lucky you don't live with Katie. She would have both of those cheeeezeboogies and you would never see them again, unless she wanted you to play tug with her.

Big Pupi here-
Just a warning, Dudes. I once decided to bring my stuffy cheeseburger out on my nightly constitutional, was seen by many, and was subsequently dubbed the "burger dog" by my fellow apartment-dwellers. Stuffy burger has since been tossed, but I am still the Burger Dog. So unless you want to be a Burger Dog... wait. Burgers are tasty. This might not be so bad.

Enjoy your burger stuffies!!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

You sure got a lot of stuff that Mom has been hording from you.. You sure are lucky she decided to take some time off just to get those out.. Mom vacations are to relax so enjoy your time with the pups...

Big Sloppy Kisses

Noah the Airedale said...

You mean to tell me your mama didnt give you those fab pressies immediately...whats going on!!!! Oh well at least you got them eventually. They look like heaps of fun too.
Your mama is so lucky to be on vacation. D needs to spend one with us so she can post more and visit more blogs. All they do is work and if they do vacation they dump us at Kelston Kennel and go overseas!!!!

houndstooth said...

You really got a major haul, and the best present of all must be having your mom home for the week!

I can't see the video, but I'm sure it's more Mango greatness! It's all digitized and it won't go past a certain point at the beginning.


the booker man said...

mango, dude, your mama was totally hiding the biggest stash evarrr from you!! i'm glad she finally let you open everythingie up and play and nom! that weird yellow ball thingie has got me all kinds of interested...what is it?

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

I can't believe that the DOH was holding out on you like that! The nerve! And we are quite impressed with how you are able to catch a cheeseburger stuffie without even moving! I'm thinking that Abby should start studying this technique, as while she will never be RH, she's not going to be petite... BTW, tell the DOH that even though she was holding out on the pressies, the best use of her vacation time is to spend quality time with you. (And occasionally Dexter - the labradog, not the serial-killer-turned-good-guy...)

Wow Mango you got some really cool prizes! You are one lucky dog:)

Oskar said...

Well those are great presents, but really, Mango Mamma made you wait?? That's just cruel & unusual.

The toy from Rocket & Hootie looks like relentlessly large pacifier.

Are you sure that card doesn't really say Asstiff? It would really explain a lot, just sayin...

Nubbin' wiggles,

Sunshade said...

Such fun toys for the special Mango Man and even better with mom on VACATION! I love how you catch the cheeseburgers!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Inky and Molly said...

Hey, you got quite the loot of pressies there. Aren't our two special wires two very special friendsies to have...
We knew those burgers wouldn't last, not here either...

Cinnamon said...

Oh, Mango, you are a fabulous burger catcher!!
