WTF Wednesday - Triple Header

First I want to apologize to an alert reader (you know who you are) who sent me a most awesome WTF Wednesday, but due to momma being LAZY I have been unable to post about it, but I haven't forgotten! She keeps babbling about needing to use the PhotoShops to make it a true WTF experience. Whatever.

Now for my lead story. On Saturday, I was hanging out in the dog cave with Momma when all of a sudden there is a boxer dog there, out of nowhere! I kid you not! It seems that my human brother was in the basement talking with Master and he is dog sitting the wee beast and brought him over and just let him loose on MY estate.

WTF? Like you just bring this dude over and let him go tromping around in Mango land?

To be honest, Dexter, Momma, and I were so taken aback that by the time she had the flashy beast in hand we were to the kitchen.

I suggested we go out in the yard for a bit of bitey action. At first he was shy to leave the observation deck, but I told him it would be OK.

Check it out! He was even smaller than PeeWee! To be honest, I thought the kid could have used a good meal because I could see his ribs. My brother said he is a rescue doggie that belongs to some other human.

So for the next many minutes there was happy fun times dog party. Hey! The Mango is a fun loving guy who enjoys a good romp as much as the next dog.


Yuh, momma even had the presence of mind to make a short movie.

But then, things took a turn for the worse. First the interloper starts peeing all over the place. As if this was his estate. You can see that I am not pleased by this turn of events.

But here comes your WTF moment. Long time readers are well aware of the propensity for boxer dogs to want to put their heads in my mouth (except for Miss Maggie of course). I can't explain it. No doubt they talk about it around the campfire and are all double daring each other so when this dude came to my estate, well, he just wouldn't let go and even after I was really tired and just wanted to rest, he was all, "Come on Mango, let me put my head in your mouth, PLEASE!" Until I just couldn't take it anymore and I went all medieval on his little stubby tailed ass. Yes, I showed him what the inside of my mouth looked like for sure and he was none too pleased and then Momma is all grabbing ME and hustling the foolhardy dude into the basement (and I think she might have been less than happy for my brother turning him loose in the house with no warning).

Next up, how about THIS one? I typically enjoy a nice recreational bone on Sundays, but due to momma and master being all off galavanting who knows where, I was deprived my usual masticatory pleasure. Huh?

But it gets worse! On Monday night, momma says, "Oh Mango! You need to have your chewie. And PeeWee too!" No problem, right? Except for PeeWee got to take his chewie into the dog cave (and if I am not mistaken enjoy it upon MY mastiff bed).

And I was forced to take mine... OUTSIDE... IN THE DARK! WTF? Out alone in the yard, in the dark, with just my nommy bone and look at that black space behind me! Anything could have jumped out and attacked me. Boo hoo!

Finally, I bring you the following movie which I think demonstrates conclusively that I, Mango am the smartest dog ever and not a fool headed labradork like idiot PeeWee.

Did you hear his chompers and see that glazed look on his face? WTF?

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. From Momma - I wasn't really mad at Mango for reacting to the boxer. The dog seemingly appeared out of nowhere. I had no idea he was in the house. After a brief playtime, Mango did warn him with stiff body language and a little snarl and grrr.... gosh, I could tell he was done with playtime, but the little boxer came back for more and Mango charged him all AR AR AR and boxer dude seemed to think this was fun and kept trying to engage Mango which was when I grabbed Mango and shooed the boxer into the house.

Also, chews are the one thing about which Mango has NO sense of humor and so the boys need to be separated and supervised during chewie time. If they are both inside, whichever dog is not on the same side of a closed door as I am doesn't settle down. Mango was quite happy for an hour and a half enjoying his chewie in the yard.

Hi Mango, WTF! It must have been a day for it. We had an unexpected visit from a collie and I went 'postal' at our gate. This dog actually came and sat at our front door. What a cheek. At least you had the pleasure of showing him your mouth. Your legend lives on! Slobbers, Bruce.

Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Mango, that was one skinny old Boxer you had as a surprise visitor!
We thought you were very hospitable.....well up to a point but let's face it - it is MangoLand!
The cheek of him peeing everywhere and to want to put his head in your mouth.......well!
Enough is enough!
What is your mom thinking of - Dexter with a bone on your bed and you out in the cold and dark.
Mango you need to leave her and come to Scotland - she will be sorry then and we will never put you Mango out in the cold and dark!
Dexter you are the bestest treat catcher we ever did see!
love and kisses

Winterdark said...

Hmmm. I would have gone to town on that boxer's butt for sneaking into my house. Probably best that it wasn't in my house. Glad you got your treat though Mango. That's VERY important.


The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

Hey Mango, have you ever seen the inside of an adult Scottish Terrier's mouth? While it can never compare to the RH, it is enough to scare off a weenie boxer -we wouldn't want him in our kitchen either - and Piper would pee on him before he could get out the door!

Niamh said...

Things are always hopping over at your estate Mango. I can imagine that it was most shocking to have a boxer appear out of your basement. We don't have a basement but we would like one if it had a few boxers in it.

Forced to chew your bone in the dark? Well maybe that is better than having to chew it on a purple bed.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Kari in WeHo said...

that was quite the triple header!


Lola said...

I can't imagine anything more WTF than to find that you had boxers growing in your basement, Mango. And then he stuck his head in your mouth. What a surprise that must have been. As far as the chewie thing goes, it was probably best. Dog knows it's a problem here, resulting in few chewies. Better to have chewie in the dark than none at all, I say.

lotsa licks, Lola

Maggie Mae said...

OoH Mango,

I tinks da boxer was overwhelmed and in awe of your Mango-ness and didn't know when to say when, sometimes us boxers do that.

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

PeeS My mom would have kept me on a leash...I can be a bit sassy when I meets new furiends. ;)

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

we loved the video Mango. you were living it up that is for sure

WTF Mango! I would never want to see the inside of your mouth! I might get lost in there!!

We understand about being seperated when chewies are involved. The boys don't get them, unless they go to work with me, we don't even give them any at the house anymore, they just can't be nice when chewies are involved:)

Kira The BeaWootiful and Mom said...

Wooos Mango! I see there is not much like having a visitor until his welcome wears out. The fun, then they just get annoying, I too can make some serious noises and moves on those interlopers. I enjoy sitting outside at night, eating a bone, woo never know what might come wandering by, I almost got a possum the other night.

The Heartbeats said...

MANGO I thought us boxers had an understanding with mastiffs? We have so much in common- drool, saggy jowls, expressive faces, etc. Of course that particular boxers sounds kinda ditsy! It's not smart to pee on another dogs estate!


The Boston Lady said...

Mango, a dog can only take so much! Understand completely about wanting to put that boxer's head in your mouth. Panda's got a big mouth, but not as big as yours, but she has the same body language-warning signs when she has had enough. I can see it coming a mile away. Looks like you had some fun running around time nonetheless.

And... as if we could believe YOU are scared of the dark! Shameless attempt to get sympathy from your loyal readers. LOL


SEems all anarchy has hit mangoland! Wow... There was a crazy boxer at camp but I think he got kicked out. He'd bounce off the walls and went to lock down quite a bit. I don't even think the goon squad cared for him.
Ummm.. so if we go for walkies together, I can't come an pee in your estate? As if....

Raymond and Busby said...

Ugh! Nothing like a surprise guest who overstays their welcome. We don't blame you for going off on the boxer. Who let him out without telling you? Ugh.

We think eating your chewy toy al fresco is classy.

The Paw Relations said...

Seriously, the boxer dude has issues!

Dearest RH -

You might have taken the lead on Pea (brain) with the air treat test -

Keep up the good work!


Mack said...

Mango Dude! You and Paris Thing are the EXACT same when it comes to chewies! Nobody can get around her when she has anything in her mouth!
But I don't blame you for telling the boxer dude to simmer down!

I still think you and PR need to have at least one date....

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Mango, Mabel lou likes to bury her nommy bones for EXACTLY a day and a half and then enjoy them in the yard... ALONE!

TwoSpecialWires said...

It's a simple as this: We really like you, Mango. You are one cool dog.

OK. We know that comment doesn't have anything to do with boxers or chewies or big black holes in the dark outside. But we still wanted to say it.

We really like you.

Jake and Fergi

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

You call your bones "chewies"...hmm...that seems not so masculine, I'm just sayin'....

And havin' a bone in the dark is the can bury it seventeen times and no one is the wiser and you can dig it up in the morning all stinky and dirty and bring it in on the once white carpet.

Now I need to go look at new comforters. Mumsie ruined the old one washing it just cuz some little girlie peed on it as it was lyin' on the floor whilst she changed the sheets. I mean she gives me cookies for peein' on the pee pads..what the heck is the difference. She shoulda used a large commercial washer. It's quite dead now. Down all askew...soap spots visible.

But no pee!


Frankie Furter said...

Mango... WTFang indeed. Buddy I'm thinkin that you need to get away from that place for a while. Wanna come to my place for 87 hours? I know how to treat a fella.

Maggie and Mitch said...

OMG, you did an Airesnap, Dexter! Are you part Airedale?!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

brooke said...

hahahahah Mango that was a great WTF Wednesday post! Dexter is a little small brained isn't he? hehehehe. That was quite entertaining. I think I could watch that over and over again.
And the video with the boxer (where'd he come from?!) with is little stubby tail wiggling and wagging... he is a cutie.

houndstooth said...

Awww, Mango! I can't believe that little interloper tried to put his head in your mouth. I say, he got what he asked for! Some dogs just never learn!

Tee hee! I would never fall for an air treat!


Tucker said...

Um Mango, Boxers are mean (well not Maggie Mae of course) but my neighbor boxer is terrible and he tried to beat me up when I was on a walkie. He stood up on his toothpick back legs and pummled me with those front paws. Momma tried to pull him off me but the idiot doesn't even wear a collar. Finally I barked and snapped at him. His stoopid hooman finally got him and took him inside. Ruined my walkie.

woof -Tucker

Sue said...

That was quite rude for the boxer to come onto your estate and start marking all over the place. Serves him right to get the Mango treatment.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

From the Momster here - I was amazed at how good Mango AND Dexter were with the visitor INSIDE the house. I would never even chance that - too much territorialty inside. Kudos to both dogs for accepting the visitor as well as they did.

As for bones, yeppers, we have to separate them here too, usually it is a crate treat. Why is it that no matter that each has their own, they always want the other one:)

Oh My!

Well, boys will be boys!

woo woos, Tessa

Oskar said...

Well I gotta say, ya just can't walk into someone else's yard and peeing on things. It was nice of him to let him see inside your hooge Mango-head.

Nubbin wiggles,

Marjie said...

Let me spell it out plainly for Mango Momma: Dogs are Civilized. Dogs Need Electricity. Please, ma'am, I beg of you, for the sake of my brethren, install flood lights to enhance the nommy bone experience!


Zona said...

Surprise guests on your estate... I don't blame you for getting tired of being a host! But it was nice of you to show him around and play zoomies!


Laura, Lance, and Vito said...

Ah boxers. Both my dogs hate em. Boxers just tend to get themselves in trouble with all the pawing action and seemingly inability to get when another dog just isn't interested! Sure are wiggly cute though

Anonymous said...

Well, that was quite a WTF Wednesday! (Does "WTF" mean "What the Fruit"?) I don't blame you even a little bit for putting that doggie in his place! My's YOUR estate after all! If you wanna know a secret, well, I don't like doggies I don't know coming in to my house without being given proper time to prepare either! I mean, What the Fruit is that about?

Wiggles & Wags,

Eric said...

Crickey Mango that Boxer was either a) brave b) dumb or c) training to be a dentist...

Wiry love Eric xx

Two Pitties in the City said...

Miss M didn't know how to read social cues from other dogs either, so she had her head in many dogs' mouths. We think she is part Boxer...maybe they just taste really good.

doyle and mollie said...

hey big boy we discovered a new word while doing our post today and we know it will make you arf...STONKING it's british slang for huge...
mango, relentlessly stonking.... arf arf

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Dear Mango, as Abby is part Boxer, she thanks you for not killing the visiting rescue dog. Abby is also full of joie de vivre and impetuosity. That's why I usually write the posts: she has the attention span of a gnat and wants to play ALL THE TIME. Mama says Abby is a free spirit. Sounds like your guest was just expressing his Boxer spirit without thinking about the reaction that can provoke in more reflective dogs.

Hope yer Master isn't manufacturing Boxers as his basement project. There's an alarming thought: an underground railroad for rescue Boxers in your basement.


1000 Goldens said...

Just seeing WTF in your blog titles instantly makes me happy. A triple header is like winning the lotto. Thanks for the laughs Mango Man - you are the best :)

Levi Mac said...

Mango- that play time looks like fun! It's not your fault that the doggies like stickin dere heads in ur mouth! And I think it's ok to eat your chewie long as you gets one :)

tula said...

hey mango woo come live at my estate! we won't have that non-sense. i don't think.


Gracie =^o.o^= said...

I just cannot believe how big your doggies are! Wow! If I were with all of you I wouldl feel like I was playing with disosaurs. I am sorry that you had to eat your chewy bone outside alone. I hope you were not too afraid. I think maybe the visiting boxer should have been put out there myself. I am not surprised that you would react to the boxer, as Dr. Phil would say is "Why not?" Maybe we will go home today. Let's hope so.

the booker man said...

seriously, did this boxer just pull a star trek and beam into your basement? he could have at least asked for the permissions! that and then him tryin' to stick his head in your mouth makes me think he kinda sorta might be one fry short of a happy meal. anywho, i'm sorry you had to eat your chewie out in the backyard in the dark. totally scary like!! i'm glad you survived to woof about it!

the booker man

Peppy Sheppys said...

Oh this was a most exciting post! Strangers in the house! Bones in the dark! And labradorks and imaginary foods! So exciting.

Sheps w/Pep & those Other Two

ps The corgi quite regularly pops into our mouths. Perhaps he is part boxer.

kissa-bull said...

MJ's doghouse said...

MANGO...WE BOTH KNOW HOW MANGOIFICENT YOU ARE...your walk was are mazing..but \i am getting a little worried about all these woman who find you so so so mangolicious...I THINK IT may be time to let them knwo i am always going to be your number one...just saying big man...

TOBY PUPPY in SA said...

Hey Mango-Man...
It's YOUR estate!
mmmmMust have given Momma rather a fright! You know...a boxer took the grass out from under my Momma's feet one day - she was 'concussed' (whatever that means). I thinks my momma would perhaps have cheered the Mango on!BOL!
I must remember my Mango-Manners when I come and visit you one day!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hey Mango - having already heard the "uncensored" version of this from my human, I thought you behaved with incredible generosity and dignity. In fact, in the movie, you looked like you were having a wild time - but I know what you mean when those young whippersnappers just don't know when to stop!!

Honey the Great Dane

dewdana said...

Mango buddy, I don't blame you at all for getting fed up. It is quite shocking to find another doggie in your house without having been formally introduced. I am glad that you did not unleash full mango on him, that shows lots of restraint! Pretty funny about pee-wee having his chompers set on auto-pilot or something. hee hee hee.
