Space Invader and Tennis Ball El'bow Update

It might be purple, but it's still MY bed!

Look at him! He doesn't even care that I am there!

Oh poor ME!

Under the circumstances, I resorted to crying to momma. Sure, I could have grabbed the runt by the head and tossed him aside like a bag of labrastuff, but that would have been frowned upon so instead I howled and moaned until the DOH woke up Mr. Piggy Bed Hog and told him to go to his couch.


In other news, momma's el'bow therapist has been giving her something called iontophoresis with dexamethasone. Now there's a mouthful. Apparently she gets hooked up to a car battery twice a week and that generates an electrical current in her arm and then there is a patch of charged particle medicines on her el'bow and the current pulls them into her El'bow. Yeah, I think it is pretty far fetched myself, but she swears that she is FINALLY getting some relief and of course I am getting some relief from her constant crying, so whatever works.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

I cant believe Pee Wee would rather sleep on your purple bed than the COUCH?!!!!

Thank you for the couch cover linky, thats what Haylie is getting for xmas heheheheh.

its alot cheaper than buying her a couch to herself :)

Maggie Mae said...


I sure hopes dat Dexter realizes just how nice you is to hims. Sleeping in da Mango's bed, even fur a little while should be considered an honor... :)

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

PeeS Happy news dat da voodoo hocus pocus is helping your momma

TOBY PUPPY in SA said...

Hey Mr Mango...
It's nice that you get your human slave (I think you call her 'Momma') to clear things out for you....I'm still working on mine.
Oh...ask your Momma if it isn't the 'secretary' stuff she does for you that is hurting her elbow...or did you pull on the lead too much?
Hope you have a fabulous weekend on that bed of yours. I think you will feel more than comfortable here in SA at the moment...all the trees are PURPLE! BOL!
ps Maxmom is still laughing at yesterday's adventure!

Magno Man! I just realized that you're right next door in mastive chewzits! I'll have to look you up if I ever travel out that way... you're listed under Relentlessly Huge, right?

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

hehehe--hook it up to Dexter

HoundDogMom said...

Mango, we thinks if you just lay really close to PeeWee on the big purple bed. Breath really heavy in his ear, and give a little wet willy in his ear with that tongue of yours. He will soon realize that he is in the wrong spot and will move to the couch. Hee Hee. I know that is what I do when I want my space and I am the smallest of the hounds. You should have no trouble with your Hugeness on getting your point across to that PeeWee. Amiee

Mack said...

Such a sad sight! Poor Mango on the floor and PeeWee all nice and comfy on YOUR bed..what's next....?

Frankie Furter said...

Well Mango I had a hard time taking this post very serious beclaws... I am still thinking about that Post from YESTERDAY...hehehe
I think you should hook that car battery up to YOUR bed and then when PeeWee gets on it... ZAAAAAAAAAP I'm just sayin'.

3 doxies said...

Well dat is just NOT do-able! I can't believes he had da nerve to gets on your bed like dat! Beds are like never lets anybuddy borrows 'em! Course, I don't wears undies but you knows what I'm talin' bouts.
Glad your DOHs El'bow is feeling betters.


houndstooth said...

All this fuss over that purple bed that you hate so much? Oh, Mango! I'm glad you didn't have to sleep on the floor anyway!

Are they trying to turn your mom into Frankenstein or what? Hooking her up to car batteries?! "She's ALIVE!" I fear what may be coming next week!


Priscilla said...

Glad you got back your purple bed even though you got it by crying to your momma and not putting a fight for it! It's a bit not so Mango-ish but I do understand that by shedding some tears do help you to get whatever back in a more peaceful way and I'm sure your momma appreciated it a lot too.

Well done, Mango! You're indeed tactful!!!

Raymond and Busby said...

Dexter certainly has, a LOT of nerve. Poor Mango. Glad your Mom finally woke him up and made him move.

We're happy that your Mom's tennis ball elbow is feeling better. We hate when the humans whine and cry all the time.

Thanks for checking us out today on our blogoversary. We are BIG fans of your blog and like to think of ourselves as some of your token cat fans.

We are glad to hear that your mom is getting some relief with her arm.

Lacy said...

Lois Lane/Laney said...

Mango, you DO know that you could easily squish him and take the bed a faster way, right?

Benny and Lily said...

Do you believe what we have to put up with! Kids.

Hi there! I just found your blog due to the recommendation of houndstooth up there. Both of your dogs are gorgeous, but I admit I'm overly partial to Mango's mastiffness. Thanks for sharing these fantastic photos!

Mango... Dexter has some nerve to sleep on your bed like that... Look how small he looks on your big purple bed!! Glad your momma is getting some relief!

YD, sometimes with ♥Samantha and ♥June said...

Mango, that bed is much better with you in it!!! Maybe next time if you just lay on him, he might just move.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Mango, that is so not right of Pee Wee to steal your bed. But you handled it all so diplomatically - glad the DOH responded properly. We are also happy to hear that the elbow is getting better, but we are a little worried - does this mean that she is getting shock treatment? Serious stuff, Mango. BOL.

Woos ~ Phantom,Thunder, and Ciara

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We are sure glad that you got your purple bed back. That Dex just doesn't look right on it..
Sure hope the shock thing helps Mom..

Marjie said...

We have a little 4 amp car battery charger. I'll bet that would do the trick for your Momma's El'Bow. Then she could spend the time hooked up to the trickle charger, with you at her side, and save the money for that fool therapist, and buy more dog cookies! See where this is going? Quality time and cookies!


The Boston Lady said...

Mango, I have my own problems down here with two swelled-headed Bostons who keep putting on airs now that they have been part of your adventure this week. So, please... just give Dexter the ole evil eye and he'll move back to his "has to be more comfortable" couch. As for momma's fancy therapy machine, I have had such treatments on my back and they do help, so hope you feel better soon, Momma!

Wild Dingo said...

Well, Loki may have canoes for ears but he certainly doesn't have a Barbie Dream Bed, does he? Who's the cracker now? huh?

and I say, frowned upon, schmowned upon. go yank that boy up. I mean your momma's got a tennis racket on her elbow, not like she can do anything about you taking matters into your own, um, mouth...

Mango Man! Oh Yeah!

tula said...

just lay on the squirt! surely your mangos would be sufficating enough to move.. geesh.

cya in skool tomorrow- avec bib!

Ina in Alaska said...

Greetings from your far flung friends from Alaska! Love the purple bed, it looks very cozy (and matches the purple chunks in my hair too..) Glad Momma is getting better with her therapy, nothing worse than feeling awful. Hope you have a most comfortable weekend! xoxo PS wish we did not live so far west of you too... we could use Master's help with our deck..... to be continued....

Bruce from Down Under said...

Hey Mango, maybe pee wee just wants to be like the Mango. Let him dream a little. Its spring time down under and I'm feeling good!, Slobbers Bruce.

Noah the Airedale said... know they cant get it into their thick furry heads to stay off our beds! I have the same problem Mango. Why my bed when they have their own....sigh.

ps. we hope the treatment works for your mama.

Kari in WeHo said...

I had the same stuff on my foot!


Lorenza said...

I hope your mom gets better soon!
Aaaand.... Dexter! The nerve, right?
Glad you have your bed back!
Kisses and hugs

Samantha said...

Whoa! Anythings starting with "Dex" anything brings back '60s memories ( no offense Dexter...). Glad to hear it's helping out - sounds dire! Mango... you are such a good boy to whine rather than take matters into your own hands/jowls. Happy to see that you got your bed back!
Hugs xoxoxo

OMD Mango Dude this is just NOT right! What is wrong with the Labradork? Me do NOT thinks that you the Man should have to cry for your bed!

PUSH the dork out!!!

woo woos, Tessa

Southern Fried Pugs said...

Mango, where did you get your giant bed? Our cousin Noah is a Great Dane (a big freaking huge one) and is coming to visit for Christmas. He's going to need somewhere to sleep and mom's being trying to find a bed that is big enough for him. She's even thinking about getting a crib mattress, he's so stinking big. Any tips on where to shop?

Your friends,
Tallulah and Petunia

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Mango, do you fit on Dexter's couch? If so, I'd just climb up there. But you appear to have an imperial-sized bed, and the couch doesn't look that big, so maybe the couch is not a good fit for your RH self. I personally adopt the strategy suggested above: if Abby is on a bed I want, I just stroll over and plop down on top of her. She moves real sharp like and I'm king of the bed. No growls, no muss, no crying to mama.

Well, all's well that ends well.

Glad to hear Mango Momma's tennis ball el'bow is feeling better.


Dewey Dewster said...

Yikes Mango...I suppose if ya put a "No Trespassin'" sign on yer bed....Dexter would just ignore it. Try an electric shock...I say.....ya need ta impress that bed is yers...not his....Yes siree.....

Two Pitties in the City said...

Dexter looks so funny. Now I can really tell how huge that bed is!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Mango. You look like you'd be a great pillow. Do you allow that sort of indulgent behavior with your people?

And that electrical shock therapy that your moma is getting? We think that's what our moma got once, too. But she never knew the name of it. We hope it works. Just make sure your moma doesn't stand in any puddles. That could be dangerous.

Best wishes to all. We're glad you got your purple bed back.
Jake and Fergi

Carrie and Waffle said...

oh Mango I was going to side with the Dexter dude (us labbies need to stick together), but you look so sad and pitiful, I've got to side with you. Tell him to move his furry butt off your bed. I hate to give away a trade secret, but if you ring the door bell most silly labbies will run for the door. Give it a try.
wags and kisses

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hey Mango - just be glad that Dexter isn't a CAT - otherwise no amount of moaning and crying on your part - or yelling and screaming from you human - will shift the little beast! (and I speak from experience)

Honey the Great Dane
ps, glad your Momma's elbow sickie is getting some treatment that's helping!

Peppy Sheppys said...

This happens from time to time in our house with the snuggle ball and my sissy. I just get into the bed anyway. And sometimes on top of her. That is a sure fire way to get her to move as she does not want to be a pancake dog.

p.s We hope your ma's el'bow is feeling better after her electroshock therapies. We understand they also do that for the brains. We might try it on the ma ape.

Sue said...

Maybe if you just lie down on top of him and squish him, he'll get the idea.

Mom is glad you Mom's arm feels better. She used to get that same treatment and said it works.
