A Human Adventure and Pressies for ME!

Last Sunday, Momma and Master abandoned us to go to this place!

I am unclear as to what it is, but apparently it is some big deal because they were totally gone FOREVER. Needless to say, I was anxious to get my paws on the flashy beast upon their return to determine what all the fuss was about.

Momma had cleverly preloaded the box with this damning photo as evidence that she would have LOVED to bring me along, but it was forbidden. NO DOGS ALLOWED!

Well, apparently except for the poodle toss portion of the program.

Seeing the mesmerizing photos that she captured, one has to wonder why the fair attracts so many humans.

Master was very smitten with this particular display. I believe he had what you call a sixties flash back.

Now here is something odd. Apparently there were many drafting horses there. It is no wonder that this captured the DOH's attention given that she just loved her drafting class at geek school.

But these guys seem to have left their T-squares at home.

And the were all sporting bows on their behinds.

Speaking of asses...

Does anybody else find it intriguing that this is the only picture of the DOH taken that day? Huh?

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, what is the big deal? You can watch a movie here if you want to see what was going on...

Did you watch it? Momma claims that there were many more exciting clips of doggies diving in the water except that she got the "sense" of the camera confused and was recording when she thought she wasn't and not when she thought she was which would explain why there were so many movies of her armpit (mercifully edited out). I kind of liked the kids rolling around inside the balls. Might look into getting one of those for PeeWee.

Actually, I thought the drafting horses were cool and made a special movie just of them that you can watch here.

And I suppose all must be forgiven because they did bring home this most nommy doggie happy meal! Fries, corn dog, and other stuff! Yum!

I got to sample a doggie french fry right away.

Watch your fingers!

Due to the time spent in the pubs of Cambridge (our fair city) during his misspent youth, Master is quite accomplished at the game of darts.

So when they spotted a dart throwing game along the arcade with fabulous prizes, Momma asked him to throw a few and guess what he won! A stuffed mini-me!

Just like Anakin! I think it is life sized too.

I wanted to take my new friend outside for some playtime.

But the DOH thought he would be more comfortable on the shelf in the dog cave. Oh well...

That's the end of my report!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Jen said...

Ohhh, those doggy happy meals would be just the thing around here! You know, starving lab and all! And, that just seems WRONG that there was no dogs allowed! Or, maybe even worse that they let just poodles in!! Hmph! Ah well, looks like fun!

Anonymous said...

Well, except for the stuffed mini-me and all the delicious nommables, that looks kind of like a scary and confusing place. I mean, flying elephants? WHAT THE...?

Oh, and did your momma ever find her car? Or did she have to walk home?

Wiggles & Wags,

Hound Girl said...

ok wow that is the coolest happy meal we have ever seen, man yall are spoiled!! flying poodles... not so sure about that.

jen said...

Poodle throwing, sixties flash backs and asses,,,wow...that sounds like my kind of thing:)

Frankie Furter said...

Mangooooooo My mom's eyes are all glazed and she is going all cracker over that Mardi Gras thingy. It seems that she has DONE that thingy and is now raving and ranting about having earned BEADS. Sheeesh
Now what kind of Mixed Up place was that anyway??? NO Dawgs Allowed... BUTT they had Dawgie Happy Meals for sale??? Just WRONG.
My Dad says that he and your Master should get together and make those Farts or Darts or whatever. They could have tried to win even more of those Mini US thingys. hehehe
I am glad that your two leggers had such a grrrreat time.
Word around here is that we are going to a Pumpkin Show.

The Paw Relations said...

No dgos allowed? Well, it could have been THAT much fun then!

Corbin said...

Uh, could you help a brotha out and send me that happy meal????

Marjie said...

Humans do inexplicable things. Why on earth would they want to go to a place where you are not invited?

It turns out I was invited to visit Mr. Jefferson's house, but my Momma decided I would not like a 6 hour car ride and she would not like to walk up the mountain with me. Talk about your DOH!


Priscilla said...

I'm sorry that your mum didn't take you along and you missed so much fun! It's so not fair that DOGs are not allowed to go to so many places and do so many things. Don't you agree that dogs usually do things which are more sensible than hoomans?

That stuffy looks good too but I know that you're very gentle to stuffies too. Why on the shelf? I think it should be on your bed!!!

Well, can't blame your mum anymore as she brought home those yummy Happy Meal!

Ms. ~K said...

That was fun and your mom's videos are always the best!!!
"Where's the bloody car?"
Hugs and belly rubs,

Dennis the Vizsla said...

No dogs allowed, but there are poodles and horses and donkeys? What's that about?

Aniemother said...

Nice video! Mom got a good giggle out of the "where is the bloody car" at the end!


Heather and Pumpkin said...

Wow I sure would love a happy meal!


Raymond and Busby said...

Looks like your humans had fun horsing around at the fair. That happy meal freaked us out at first because we thought it was a REAL happy meal for humans, not dogs.

Did your Dad go to Harvard? Sometimes Mom wears a Harvard tee shirt because she thinks it makes her look more intelligent. duhr. NO, she didn't go to Harvard!

Sam and Pippen said...

Them poodles gets to go everywhere! They must not be real dogs... at least they were being tossed into the water so that makes up for most everything else!

The Boston Lady said...

Mango, you and Dexter need to work on those water jumping skills! That's your ticket in next year. I know I've seen archival footage of PeeWee launching into the water, but none of you. You will simply have to assume the role of manager and trainer and accompany him to next year's competition. Cool fair food.

Benny and Lily said...

Oh Mango you always crack us up. What's up with these No Dog places?if anything it should be no asses/donkeys allowed! Those people go to these places then brag brag brag, ugh.
Benny & Lily

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

But The Mango RH is NOT a dog -

Too bad there wasn't a khompetition fur the heaviest Mango or Pea

Woo khould have gone!

PeeEssWoo: I wonder what Tommy will think of those drafting horses!?!

Sue said...

Wow, they had lots of stuff, drafting horses, wet dogs, flying elephants and frogs on elevators. They also had a big display of cars.

houndstooth said...

Now I've seen everything on your blog -- lipstick, nards and asses! I used to be such an innocent young pup, too.

What is up with that No Dogs sign? Ridiculous!

"Where's the bloody car?" Bwaaaaa ha ha!


Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

How could that possibly be a reputable fair with dogs banned from the event!!

It did look like your Moms and Dad had a great time thought! That Happy Meal looks slurpilicious!!

Woofs and Kisses!

Tucker said...

Did you Momma earn herself any Madi-Gras beads?


woof - Tucker

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

OK Mango, we need to make one thing absolutely clear: There are NO BOWS on horse behinds over here! It is illegal to dock horses' tails in Europe and so they are free-flowing. In the Percheron world, they are beautifully braided with wool for shows. We think that looks a whole lot better than a silly rosette on a docked tail!

Tommy (for #1)

Kari in WeHo said...

OOOO mine want doggy happy meals!


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

OH that looks like so much fun.. What Dexter you couldn't do the doggie dive?
Mom really loved the draft horse movie.. Mango they are just your size maybe Mom should have brought one home for you to play with..

Big Sloppy Kisses

Levi Mac said...

Ooooo fairs look like fun! I can't believe no dogs allowed! Don't they know who you are?!
Those treats look awesome...mommy needs to get me a happy meal.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Mom says that fairs are great fun! We wouldn't know about that because we weren't allowed to go just like you weren't allowed to go either, Mango!
Mom loved the draft horsie video! She says that for such large animals, they sure do gracefully glide along!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Ah, Mango,you got those wonderful nommies without the effort of walking for miles and miles looking for the Mastiffmobile, probably in the hot sun. And we bet Mango Momma took the picture with the donkey to show you that you're just as big as some equines. The "no dogs" sign was, however, misleading and surely infringed on your Consitutional rights, being as there was clearly discrimination in allowing some doggies and not others. Abby's apprenticing to be a legal beagle [being as she's half-beagle anyway]. Maybe she can sue someone for you.

Lorenza said...

Not Fair at all!
But... well... they brought you yummy treats and a toy so....
Kisses and hugs

Those Elgin Pugs said...

road-dog-tales said...

WTF? Aren't poodles dogs, too? We're confused.
Looks like you could've had some fun there but at least you got a happy meal out of it :)
Mom tried to get Cooper to do that jumping in the water thing 'cause really it's his favoritest and bestest thing at home, but he musta got stage fright when she paraded him up there in front of bunches of people 'cause he just stood there like a statue. Guess we just like to have our fun in private ;)

Yeah, who won the poodle toss? And as half-poodles, can we sign up to be contestants (? ammo?) for next year - that looks like fun!!!

dewdana said...

Wow what a fun filled day! Well, at least for DOH & Master. I can't believe that was really a happy meal for doggies. it totally looked like people food. At least you pups got something out of the day!
