I Discover a Place Named After ME!



My good buddies, Scruffman and Stanny have been staying at my estate due to several unfortunate incidents which have left them on the outs with their mumsie. Well, I am always happy to see them and had just settled in for some heavy guy stuff...





When I received a peemail from alert reader, Sadie, telling me that she had found an entire settlement right in her home state of Florida that is totally dedicated to the Mango! Well, this is something that must be looked into.

As always, Scruffer had brought along his blow torch and after loading up on broccolies and livers, I was all gassed and ready to go. Light 'er up, Scruff, we're headed for Florida!










Ever resourceful Scruffy had brought along a whatcha call, GPS. Although his back seat driving did get a bit screechie. Approaching beastie decibel. Ow! My ears!








Once we got close, the roads were very well marked. I could hardly believe my eyes! We're headed for MANGO!







PeeWee bailed out to go visit his friend, Moose. Fine with me. Who needs their little brother following around when they are on a big adventure?







Sadie was there to greet us at the official Mango Dog Park. She even brought refreshments.







Aware of my impending arrival, the Church of Mango had allocated space for me on their agenda for some Relentlessly Huge sermonizing.






I kept my message brief and relevant. No point blathering on and on, right?











I was awarded an honorary degree from the local skool! Now we all know that I seriously am way beyond the elementary educations, but they were so earnest in their desire to put my name on their list of alumni that I had to comply (I just hope they don't start hitting me up for donations).







Our last stop was the Mango Ridge Estates. I am thinking of getting a time share there.








Time to go home...

When I went to fetch the Pea from the Moose estate, I ran into a bit of a pickle. Now, I, Mango, am of the opinion that all labradorks are pretty much interchangeable, so this was a puzzle I was not keen to solve. But Momma seems to think that little Pea is unique, so I put my brains to work.














Clever chap that I am, I quickly put out a bowl of Dexter's favorite food... ROCKS! Aha! Gave yourself away little doofus. Even Moose isn't dorky enough to eat rocks. Sheesh!













Home at last and, frankly, too tired even to be bothered by PeeWee's proximity or to rotate my sleepy photo.







Thanks Miss Sadie! It was a wonderful trip!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Wow, what a great adventure. My favorite place was the Mango Dog Park. I mean, your own dog park that's not even on your estate. Pretty cool stuff. I did like seeing you be a preacher, too, though. I'd probably be a church going doggy if there were more clergydogs. Actually, attendance in general might improve.

lotsa licks, Lola

The Boston Lady said...

Well, that part of Florida will never be the same again! Still laughing...

Mr. Connor said...

Out of this world. What a good time that was had by all !

Jen said...

Wow, Mango! That's pretty spectacular... you have some pretty darn good adventures there, my friend! I had to send Murphy out of the room while I read it; she'll want her own adventure soon! I can't have discontent little Murphys running around, can I? :)

BOL! what a great adventure. I loved the rock trick, that was great. Just one question though, why no boston baked beans instead of livers?

houndstooth said...

Now that's one heck of an adventure! Mom was laughing like a fool over that picture of you getting gassed up. I swear, I can't take her anywhere! It looks like a great place to visit. I guess we'll all know where to look for you now when you can't be found on the estate!

Samantha said...

A whole town dedicated to you, the RH - I guess it's about time! And what a cool place to have an adventure, what with the preachin' and honorary degrees and all - what a super trip for both you and the Pea!!! (great rock trick there, Mango - you are most excellent at those intellectuals!)

Frankie Furter said...

Well now Mango... I PAWsonally think this is a very much normal sensible informative post. MY MOM however seems to find it... hilarious... she was almost to dampen her drawers over the whole thingy. What the Fang is with these Peeps anyway.
Wonderful Post!!!! A+

Elyse said...

What a trip we all just went on! How nice of the sunny state of Florida to name a whole city after you! It was also very nice of you to take your Labradork brother along even if he did ditch everyone for Moose. Oh well. Riley's all tired out too from that trip. That's the first time she's been to Florida!

Elyse and Riley

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

Marjie said...

Wow! A whole town named after you, and places within the town named for you, too! They must follow your bloggie and be devoted fans of all things Mastiff!

Next time, you could let your little brother go. Then he'll understand that you are the Important One.

Drools,
Thor

Levi Mac said...

Hahahahaha
Great trip Mango! I can't believe PeeWee fell for eating rocks!

Bouncing Bertie said...

Hey Mango, just a quiet word in your ear, between ourselves you understand. You couldn't possibly, could you, email me a few of those huzzy lady photos? You see, I'm just getting to the age to appreciate these things....
Yours hopefully..
Toodle pip!
Bertie.

Priscilla said...

Mango, thanks for making us laugh so loud!
We really enjoyed the pictures from your trip. They kept us very much entertained!

Pooch said...

Speaking for my beautiful Boxer, she truly appreciates and supports your message from the pulpit, you gorgeous hunk o' dog, you!

:)

Tessa the Maltese said...

What a Pawsome Trip!

I agree, Mango Flordia will NEVER be the same! BOL

woo woos, Tessa

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

How awesome is that, Mango!!! YOur very own city and what a very hospitable one it is. Sadie was so kind to let you come with Pee Wee and your furiends. But poor Pee Wee, you tricked him, poor guy.

So are Scruffy and Stan moving in for a while? And whatever was Miss Lacie up to during their absence?

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Thank you for the big laughs Mango! It makes perfect sense that a city and all of those fine establishments would be named in your honor :)

TOBY PUPPY in SA said...

Oh Mango...what a fabulous adventure! I also wanna be a Mango citizen! (Where can I get my "Mango Card:?
Also: Please tell...where can I get some of that sensational Mango reading material??? I think I'm old enough now..
Thanks for giving Maxmom and the "Boss" a good laugh!

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

Mangotown
I bet the streets are:
-slimed with slobbers and the -street lights are gaslites
-the town is painted purple
-there are weave poles as street lane markers
-bellows of sorry love songs fill the air
-each public area has a lipstick application area
-and everything is 3 houses away.

Mr Koda MD said...

I agree with Norwood. Slobber City that place.

I suppose it wouldn't surprise you that Moose and I are in fact visual Twins? No, Didnt think so.

All mastiffs look the same. OK so that was pretty lame, cos in fact you are all such individuals.

Great adventure and I wish you well on your timeshare purchase.

Happy Friday!

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

The Mango Momma has outdone herself. I love the gas-fueled Mango chariot. I think we need a Saturday morning cartoon based on Mango, written and directed by Mango Momma. Oh yeah!

mayziegal said...

Um, so my mom has kinda worked herself into a hysterical laughing fit. Breathe, mom, BREATHE!

Anywho...I think this was a Most Mango-riffic adventure! Gosh, that Mango place looks like some kinda you-toe-pee-ah. I wish we could all go live there. Wouldn't that be GREAT? I feel very much sure that the Mango would be a most benevolent leader, for sure!

Wiggles & Wags,
mayzie

Sarge said...

Hey Mango!
Wow, a whole town dedicated to your Hugeness. What fun. I'm sure it was a great trip and your friends seemed to enjoy the vacation even if the transportation method was a touch on the stinky side.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge

HoundDogMom said...

Totally Amazing to know you have a whole town that supports you and your Mangoness. Naming their town after you and all. You being on duty as a Preacher sounds like it would be a good sermon. Thanks for sharing your journey and your town. The Hounddogs

Zona said...

BOL! What a pawsome trip! No wonder you are exhausted.

OMD! How famous do you have to be to have a whole town named after you? Gosh! I feel so priviledged to even know you!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Being part boxer, Abby sure agrees with Pooch's post. Being frugal, we are most impressed with the Mango Airways practically free flight [allowing for the cost of the fuel]. Do you serve peanuts?

Sapphire said...

you ARE famous.

Raymond and Busby said...

WOW! First of all, we think your mode of travel is fantastic. Looks like you had an incredible adventure. We think your sermon at the Mango Church had an excellent message. Words to live by! Going forward, we will certainly endeavor to keep Boxer's heads out of our mouths.

Bruce from Down Under said...

Hi Mango, My gosh, fancy having a town named after you. I presume they must have changed the name after they heard of your famous self. Great sermon too! Slobbers, Bruce.

Benny and Lily said...

BOL..holy crap Mango what are you teaching those kids? BOL

Noah the Airedale said...

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

OMD, Mango...it's taken us forever to read this...Mumsie's puter had a virus and she read it on her phone, but but but...

Scruffy bursts into tears..and when she read it, she immediately went into my backpack and CON FI SKATED all my hussy photos...that one of Khyra...OMD...Stan hid his and he won't let me look...

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
*************************

Oh Shut Up, Scruffy, you are such a big baby...now Mango...perhaps you and I could take a trip to Florida together? MY AM MEEEEE???

Oh I do love places named after the first person single pronoun...

Mumsie said to tell you your post made her day yesterday and she wants to know what makes your brain work like that?

I dunno what she means...

Kisses, my dear...
Lacie

OH...for your info, when we travel together, I will so be UNLEASHED.
