PeeWee Got an Exercise Ball and I Just Got This Dumb Toy

Ever have a happy fun making blog-able day and then your stupid human keeps delaying sharing it with your pals because, "Oh [insert name here] you have other more important things to write about and I don't want you posting every day because your friends have trouble keeping up and besides, [insert name of annoying sibling here] wants to do a special Wednesday post and blah blah blah blabbity blah blah."

Fi on that! Here is a post that I totally did over a week ago and the DOH has been withholding from my loyal readers!

Can you believe that idiot getting his own giant exercise ball?

Hey, it's not like I am in to exercising or anything, but when he uses it he gets lots of cookies and I can see the whole thing and I can hear momma all with her "good dog Dexter, what a clever lab" crap and, frankly, it stings.

In a feeble attempt to make things up to me, the stingy witch lady brought out yet another new toy which she had been hoarding.

And get this! She let PeeWee have it first. Sure, I was lounging in my yard when she came out and the dorkface was all jumping up and down oh gimmie gimmie gimmie and she actually put it in his mouth and then he went all spazoid. Just look at this!

Now mind you, this new toy made most curious sounds when pressure was applied properly. Sounds which intrigued the Mango.

I let the little guy wear himself out and then told him, "Drop it!"

Ha! Fool! Drop it! Duh! This is why the Mango is not mindful of all that obedience nonsense. You never know when it will be used against you.

Finally, I was able to indulge in a nice stuffie fest. Hey! I even made a movie here.

I think I need to talk to somebody about their video editing techniques. I know there was more action packed footage of my large and most bouncy playful self consorting with the fun times toy. In fact, I even saw that the original movie was twice as long and somebody edited out the thrilling shots of me standing majestically with the toy as well as the spine tingling action of my mighty jaws of doom. Sigh.

Well, in a demonstration of unusual understanding, momma allowed me to actually bring MY new toy inside whereupon I made myself most comfortable.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. When I was engaging in my morning perambulations, I noticed that the Monty Sorry school is accepting enrollments. What do you think? Would they take the Mango? I LOVE skool. If I went here I wouldn't even need a ride, I could walk there myself. I think I will go to the next open house and inquire.

A talking cushion! We watched the video and thought you should have had the toy first Mango, after all it was for you!
We reckon you can take sharing too far - we didn't hear Dexter make it talk like you did though.
That proves you are clever enough to go to school and we reckon they will enrol you.
Don't forget you will need to take a packed lunch.
love and kisses

Personally, I feels dat school os overated...along withs training. Besides, the scholl food sucks.
I can't believes you gets to take your toys OUTSIDE. Oh man dat just da greatest. I not allowed to takes mine out. Then again, I furgets da toys outside cuz I gets distracted and start chasing da squirrels sooooo....
Anyways, I don't understand why da pee wee gets evrything furst. you sures you at da right ouse?


Gus said...

Dear Mango Man...do you like little kiddies? (think food dropping ALL THE TIME!) If so, you might enjoy being a part of the Montessori education at that school close to you.

One of the things the Monty Sorri people do is incorporate aminals into the curriculum. The kiddies learn how to love them aminals and take care of them. Little effort is required on the part of the aminal. We think you would excell at Monti Sorry.


pee ess...both my sissies went to that kind of school and they learned good scritchie techniques ther.

The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

Sometimes life it just not fair - like when Lilly gets an extra large cookie because she needs it to keep her stomach settled - and the rest of us get a little weenie one and we have to do something to get it!! HMMMMMPHHHH - siblings - who needs them?

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

Aniemother said...

Nice toy, Mango! I love school too. I'm sure they'll let you enroll. I mean - who wouldn't want to go to school with the Mango?


C.l.o.v.e.r. said...

Hi Mango! I think you could definitely get into the Monty Sorry school! I hope you apply!
And I am glad that Dexter dropped the toy for you - look at how cute and happy you are sleeping with it!

tula said...

that is soo wrong. the squirt definitely momma's fav. instead of mango momma. we're gonna have to call her pee wee momma.

monty soorry skool only offers a BA. you're in grad skool remembah! on second thought. looks like they have a kool agility course in the back.

hey 91 degrees today-
coma time.

I can't believes your mom said, "Don't let Mango get it!" What's that about? And then she moo'd at you? I tell you, Mango, I don't know how you puts up with such constant humiliations. I do likes how you have PeeWee trained to drop it, though.

And yes! I thinks they would luvs to have you enroll in the Monty Sorry school! Maybe you could even teach a class in proper drool technique!

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Oh Mango, I went to people school last year and I LOVED it! People school is much more fun than dog school because you don't have to learn a bunch of dumb stuff like "drop it." And you still get hot dogs and lots of attentions for being the only dog.

Last night Mommy saw a movie called "Pee Wee's Big Adventure." I was most confused because I did not know Dexter could ride a bike.

That is one pawsome stuffie. I would love to de-fluff it and shut that voice box up. ~ Shen

Frankie Furter said...

I think you should apply for a JOB at that Monty Sorry school. After all you did teach PeeWee to Drop It.
OR>>>> enroll your momma. I think she could use some training since she doesn't treat you fairly.

Stella said...

You could have fun at Monty Sorry Skule by being the resident pet. The little kids would bring you treats from home. But you would have to be careful not to knock the kids down, that would be one thing the Monty Sorry peoples would not allow.

Go on over there and see what they say to you.


Beaglebratz & mom too said...

Shiloh Beaglebratz here – Oh Mango, I sooo sympathize with u. I no EXACTLY what u r talkin’bout. My little sis, Shasta – she thinks she iz such a little miss priss an’mom’z little lady. Whenever mom iz upstairs, Shasta iz rite there with her. Mom duzn’t think I can hear her say thingz like Oh u r such a sweetie or u r such a good little gurl – makes me want tu hurl(an’I hate duin’that). An’Shasta haz also claimed ALL the toyz – whenever I even TRY to play with sumthin – at furst she will bark at me an’then she will slyly inch up an’then GRAB it! Mom just kinda makes a half-harted move tu keep her away but duzn’t try that hard. But I get bak at Shasta an’my mom cuz I can counter-surf when mom iz gone an’little Ms Shasta hazta stay in her crate so she hazta just stand there an’just WATCH az I eat whatever I find – an’I du that RITE IN FRONT OF HER! BWHA HA HA HA HA!

Awwww, the Mango loves his pillow.

Hey BIG HandSome Mango! I think that you should apply to RUN the Monty Sorry school! You would make a Grrrreat boss!

woo woos, Tessa

Wild Dingo said...

Dude, Pee Wee is making a mockery of this blog! get a hold of the situation already! who's adventures are these anyway??

Sue said...

I thought you were extraordinarily patient with young Dexter. If one of my kids has a toy that I want, I take it and hide it. That stupid monkey was missing for a week. What's the big deal? Next time she'll let me play with the monkey if I want to.

You have to show these other dogs who's boss!!

Mack said...

I think the Mango needs a great big ball too. And I absolutely think you should enroll in that Monty Sorry school!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Mango, the very best part about Monty Sorry School is that they really believe in allowing the student to do what they want:) Maybe that is an oversimplification but it sounds good to us.

Cute new toy - is it still stuffed?

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Pearl said...

Mango, that school would be LUCKY to have you!

I bet you could specialize in meditations. You could really teach them a thing or two!

Sorry that peewee has been getting all of that special attention. You should do something naughty as payback to your momma. heheh! Don't tell her I said that k?


The Army of Four said...

What would you teach at school? I mean, by virtue of being a pup, you're smarter than bipeds... so you'd have to be a teacher! AND then they'd have to pay you. This is sounding good!
Tail wags,

Lola said...

OMD, Mango and Dexter. I know I should be commenting on your posts here, but I have to tell you what happened. You fell off my blogroll! I missed three of your posts because I didn't realize you weren't there! It's fixed now, but whew! I changed my blogroll because a lot of blogs I was following weren't on it, so I just imported them all onto it. I didn't realize I wasn't following yours. Yours has been on my blogroll almost since the beginning. I only realized it when I was visiting Benny and Lily and saw on their blogroll that you had a new post up. Then I got here and saw there were 3 posts I hadn't seen! I have to go get some smelling salts now and try to get over the whole experience of almost losing you. That would have been terrible. Also I wonder if I've lost anyone else.

lotsa licks, Lola

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Mango you are so mistreated.. We think you need to come and live with us.. Well you might like the HOT Texas heat but the AC feels really good..
Great video, we agree a little more Mango is needed..
So did you get enrolled in school?

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

houndstooth said...

Well, I think it's just wrong that you didn't get the toy first, to start with! That just seems very unfair. Is there no limit to how much he gets lately? Mango, you must put your paw down on this issue!


Clive said...

Mango, we most definitely think you should enrol in school! You would love it - school visits are great fun and you are always guaranteed oodles of attention!

take care
Clive and Murray

Oh boy do I sympathize with you!! My sisters always stuffies before I do. It's ridiculous!

Sympathetic wags,

Marjie said...

There is a story that my predecessor, a grand Mastiff named Sarge, went to skool on several occasions with the humans. I believe it was called "field day" or some such. He was a large hit with all of the children. Before my boys got smart enough to Home Skool with me, I went to skool with one of them on his "Me Day." It was a great deal of fun to be a Mastiff among small children. I urge you to enroll at Monty Sorry! The children will probably all share their lunch with you!


Mimi and CC Cabana said...

That school sign says Pre-K through Grade 6. You're way too advanced for them, Mango. What with your vocabulary, I think you need a higher level of education, maybe Dartmouth or Harvard?

1000 Goldens said...

Mango, I liked watching your big squishy jowls at the end of the video - so cute :)

Laura, Lance, and Vito said...

I dont know Mango, I think that toy is way cooler then an exercise ball! But will you oblige us and let us know how your dumb brother is doing with his exercises?

Beaglebratz & mom too said...

Hey there Mr. Mango - the Beaglebratz r here agin. We just finally had a chance tu watch that video an'sumthin'there is really wrong! If we herd rite, you mom'z co-workerz gave that toy tu her tu give tu u becuz U weren't feelin' good. Sooooo how come it endz up in PeeWwwz mouth furst? We shure hope that your mom did not think the Labradud (e) wuz U.

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

My Granny used to teach at a Monty Sorry school, so I asked her about you going to such a school, and she said that animals are "an important part of the curriculum". So I think you would fit right in. (Well, you might have a tough time fitting in one of those desks, but apparently they spend a lot of time sitting on the floor, with little mats, so I still think you'd be great there.) I would definitely call. Or visit. That would be SO COOL to be all edjumacated. We wish you luck. (And at least your Mom helps you with posts. My Mom goes AWOL all the time...)

Two Pitties in the City said...

I think it was worth giving Peewee the toy first, just to see that action shot!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hmm, Mango - are you sure that was a dog toy at all? Looked suspiciously like a little sofa cushion to me! Couldn't they have at least put a picture of a full-sized doggie on it for you? :-)

Honey the Great Dane
ps. my favourite part of the video was when you were "grazing"! :-)

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Your toy that was not your toy and then it was your toy! Hmmm....
School is boring... but Monty Sorry system lets you do whatever you want to do... maybe you can give it a try!
Kisses and hugs

We believe you would be a major asset to the school, Mango!

Great stuffie!

Good for you for outsmarting Dexter with the ol' "Drop It" command. Snickering here ;) Gotta remember that one. Could come in handy at the doggy park :)

Thinkin you should have a woofin with your Momma bout dolin out the toys more equally like 1 for Dexter, 2 for Mango, 1 for Dexter, 2 for Mango ;)

Just thinkin,

HoundDogMom said...

Boy we sure see your point about Mommy given PeeWee all the loving and stuffies. What kind of toys do you like because we have a very special one we think would be good for you. Have your human send us an email at WS_Jeakins@hotmail.com with your info and we will send something your way. It will be addressed to so hopefully PeeWee won't steal it. :) The Hounddogs

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hey Mango - I forgot to say that there are 2 Mini-Mastiffs in my new Obedience class! Don't know if you saw the video in my latest post but they are in there. I was thinking of you everytime I saw them.

They are Hsin-Yi's favourite dogs in class, of course (well, after me!) - their names are Riddles for the big boy and Nala for the smaller girl. They do have very gorgeous wrinkly, jowly faces! :-) And actually, I think they're pretty good in class! It's nice to see more mastiff-y dogs showing they can do training and are not just big stupid lumps like most people think (people always judge on looks, don't you think?) -

In fact, Hsin-Yi was very impressed coz Riddles's owner told us that she also shows him in the beauty dog shows - but she brings him to obedience too! ISn't that nice? So many show people think you shouldn't do training cos it'll ruin the "spirit" of the dog - or ruin their "stacking" in the ring if they are taught to Sit...well, duh! That's rubbish! Riddles can do a beautiful Stand Stay (aka 'stack') and he can do a beautiful Sit - he just learnt how to do 2 different things on command!

Grammy's Grandson used to go to one of those Monty Schools when he was little. We see that one goes from Pre-K (which is what he was when he went) to 6th. We were going to suggest that you might not like going to a school with really little kids cause they'd get stuck between your toes if you weren't careful where you was walking, Big Guy! :)

Wait what? he got YOUR toy first? How rude!
