Shocking Sunday - The Source of My Boo Boo Revealed!

Friends, last Monday is a blur to the Mango. I mean, I felt fine in the morning and went about my day as usual, but come nighttime and my leggie was ever so sore that I could almost not even walk. What could have happened?

Well, now the truth is revealed and it is, frankly, shocking, and beyond belief, but I have actual digitals photos to prove that the tail I am going to tell is completely true.

It all started when Norweed overheard some chit chat amongst the labradork goon squad at his daycamp.

Confused by this ominous conversation, he immediately rushed to his cousin Tula for a consultation.

She figured out at once that some doggie, some evil doggie, had set his sights on my large and hapless self and was arranging bodily harm! Ruh roh!

Norwood was outfitted with a watchercall wire tapping photo shooting head set and instructed to infiltrate the goon squad and get to the bottom of things.

He made his way to Logan airport where he spotted these thugs and was able to intercept them. Oh no! It is Jack and Buddy! I thought they were my pals, but apparently the labrabond runs deeper than any mere internets friendship.

So as not to cause further suspicion over his questionable head gear, Norweed brought the heavily armed tennis ball obsessed hoodlums back to the estate and attempted to soften their minds with funballs action.

Success! Because after chasing tennis balls, eating rocks, and indulging in a quick swim, they became torpid and uninclined to exert themselves further in the outtaking of my large and preferring to stay in self.

But they still needed to fulfill their contract and subsequently produced a huzzy suit which was just the right size for Nordork to squeeze into and lay a trap.

A diabolical trap.

A trap designed to bring harm to the Mango!

Yes, the old banana peel at the bottom of the stairs trick. In my haste to avail myself of the false Khyra, I slipped on the wayward fruit and became airborne! EIYEEEE!

Rendering me senseless and damaged in my large yet curiously fragile hind end.

Oh pity the Mango who is now confined to the interior of the estate. Unable to play tennis ball. Unable to go to skool. And not even enjoying a romp in my own yard.

That said, I am feeling a bit better of late and am managing the stairs without causing momma's heart to stop beating.

Thanks to the beautiful nurse Honey who was at my side as soon as she heard that I was injured and at least provided me with some fresh air and mentals stimulations.

But what of the hit itself?

The contract?

What doggie could possibly hold a grudge against the Mango?

Who would benefit from my incapacity?

Who indeed?

Mango Man! Oh yeah!


Honey the Great Dane said...

Mango! I never realised you lived in such a dangerous country! Hit dogs and sneaky traps...

Am glad you're doing a bit better and hope you recover quickly - being stuck on your estate is no fun!

Honey the Great Dane
ps. Dude - you need to lose some weight!! :-)

Lola said...

This is shocking, Mango. Are you sure? I mean, PeeWee really loves you, deep down. Doesn't he? On the other paw, things can get pretty competitive within families, it's true. Maybe things just got a little out of paw? I hope that you're feeling all better soon and that these unfortunate rifts can be healed.

lotsa licks, Lola

Maggie and Mitch said...

OMG, you have our mom rolling on the floor in stitches, Mango! We never ever thought we'd ever see the day when you were riding in a pink stroller!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

That is one sneaky Labradork that lives with you - you better watch him at all times.

Gus said...

I just cannot believe it! Dexter Dude reminds me of my very dear friend Travis, and I know he would not participate in this. I think Dexter was set up by the Lacie Beast.

Priscilla said...

Oh no Mango, I'm so shocked to hear that you're in such a danger now. I hope Dexter would realise what damages he had done to you and stop all his nasty plots right now. However, do you think everything is actually set up by others and Dexter is indeed innocent?

Hope you've a speedy recovery and find out the true culprits soon!

Sam and Pippen said...


This is most shocking news! Let us know if you need bodyguards cuz we'll be there in like, 87 days...

Sam and Pippen

Minna Krebs said...

Mango Man, this is most disturbing think that your relentless hugeness was taken down by a banana, which is not even a proper tropical fruit!

I am glad to hear that you are getting along better......and I must say that your Pink MangoMobile totally rocks!


Mack said...

Gotta watch out for those labradevils!

Kari in WeHo said...

Bad Dexter!


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

I saw the words shocking Sunday and boo boo on my sidebar link to your place and rushed right over to see what was going on. This is beyond shocking! I cannot believe that there was a hit out on you and that it was actually carried out. I have been thinking and if you want my boys to talk to their boys I will teleport them over. Also, my boys are more than willing to follow you around for a couple of days to make sure that the heat is off. What do you think?
Please email me at:
I need to tell you something.

Wild Dingo said...

It's so obvious! I always knew you couldn't trust a black labradoink! Just look at that evil grin! what happened to Norwood? is he flattened now?

Ms. ~K said...

Mango, There is a reasonable explanation for this bizarre story!

It was all a bad dream, brought on by snacking right before bedtime!

As loyal as I am to the Brudderhood of the Lab, I would never do anything to harm the Mango Man...

We cool?

AFSS said...

Mango, I was very sorry to read of your injury. Taking it easy is no fun. I had Panosteitis as a pup and having restricted activity is NO FUN.

Perhaps when you are on the mend us Flock Guardian types can band together and take care of the labradork goon squad. ~ Your friend, Fenris

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I'm so sorry my huzzy'ness played into your unfortunate akhcident -

At least they didn't try to lure woo with Mango and Pea Salsa -

I hope woo are your RH self again furry furry soon!

PeeEssWoo: My DOH says pawesome post!

dewdana said...

Glad to have some explanation for your troubles but PeeWee? He is just a sweet and innocent pup! I bet someone put him up to it. Glad you are feeling better but don't go gettin' any wild hairs just yet!

Raymond and Busby said...

Yep, it's always the one who you would least expect!

Glad you are feeling better Mango! Hopefully you will be back on the able to perform list soon.

pam said...

We are glad you are feeling betters but dood do you really think Dexter has the mentals to plan such a thing? Seriously?

And Dexter, karma is a b*tch!

Bobo and Meja

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

Dexter may be dastardly, but he got the job done. Way to go, Pee Wee, you deserve all the training and private lessons. Cabana agrees that labs rule, Mango drools!

Chester said...

Truly a dialabrical plan!!!

But it was for double walkies, triple school and private tennis ball! Who can blame a dawg for that?

Hope your RH hiney keeps gettin' better but I have a feelin' deep in my labragut that PeeWee is gonna pay dearly for his labraplot.

LOVED the suspense and true to life (?) pictures that helped me follow the storyline.

Woofs and true to life slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Bouncing Bertie said...

I am shocked to the very core of my being. Surely it can't be true? Can it?
Toodle pip!

Frankie Furter said...

SHOCKING!! Taken down by a BANANA???? The DUDE Squad was out to get you?? OMD OMD what is this world coming to? Dexter is starting to behave like Dennis and his crew!!
I think this would make a super Duper ACTION flick.. Starring Bruce Whineless.
I am glad that you are better. Have you Pooped yet?
My paws are crossed for that very much impawtant ACTION.

houndstooth said...

Oh my! I think I need to sit down! I am shocked, just shocked, that such a nefarious plot could have been hatched! I'd never have suspected Dexter of such a thing. Thank goodness you have some friends willing to stand by you and help you out!


brooke said...

you can never trust anyone these days huh?!
I cant believe it was a banana peel!

Piappies World said...

Waaaaah Could it be?! Pee-Wee Dexter planned it all?! We are shocked. Perhaps he was just influenced to do it.

We hope that you are feeling better now and we also hope the Dexter wakes up from this nasty plots and get back to being his sweet and caring self once more. Be extra careful, Mango!

Sue said...

We have just one thing to say about all this... sit on him.

Morgan, Tsar and the Porties

rottrover said...

OMD! It's just like "The Bodyguard" when the jealous, evil sister put out the hit on poor Whitney Houston!! But Dexter? Really?? I think someone's hallucinating from their Tramadol...

Mango Dude, don't believe everything Norwood says...

Carol from Down Under said...

Oh Mango, how lovely to have such a caring brother. His plan to make your life a pleasure worked beautifully. No-one else has noticed but I saw the blush on Nurse Honey's cheeks. Did she offer to give you a 'bed bath' because of your poor leggie? Did she actually see the full Mango? Good boy Dexter. No worries, love Carol x

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

I saw your comment that you sent me an email. I haven't gotten it yet. My email has been taking its time letting things come to me. I have noticed this in the last several days. I will be on the lookout for it and when I get it and am ready to go with the message I will email you. Thanks for sending it. If I don't get it by tomorrow try to send again or leave comment with email address at my place.

Oh my goodness Mango I didn't realize you lived in such a dangerous part of the country...I sure hope you get better soon and watch out for those never know what they are plotting.

Too funny! Well, not funny but more like you should be downright paranoid now. I would start leaving more slobbers around the house for Dexter to slip and fall on!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

The mind reels! We're inclined towards the "delusional dream due to meds" theory, because Dex is such a sweetie pie and you do have an RH imagination. Next guess: dastardly horror plot by Dennis, borrowing from one of his dad's books. It's a setup by an out of town Family [in the mob sense] trying to take over your territory by pitting you against your innocent brother to destroy your Family. And who is [or was, we can't really tell] on a trip from the West Coast specifically in pursuit of the Mango? It's a West Coast takeover, Bubba. Watch your back. If you need an extra nurse, besides Honey & the Beastie, our cousin Pretty Girl has floof, will travel. [Which is a better offer than you've gotten from that other Akita-mix who actually lives right there in your territory.] If you set up a Boxer Brigade or a Retriever Regiment in your defense, we're there.

Stay alert! Vigilence! Better get a food taster. And a bomb-sniffing dog to check your mail, visitors, premises; Labs are good at that :D Good way for Dex to prove his loyalty to the Family.

I did not get the email, the monster must have it. If you could leave me a comment with your email I have something I need to send you before the start of your week. Was hoping to get it to you today but tomorrow will be OK.
Also, you could try to send again:

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Conspiracies, labrathugs, huuuuuge dogs flying through the air (thank dog you didn't land on the Khyra look-a-like!) Next thing you know Dexter's going to be taking out a life insurance policy on you!

Mr Koda MD said...

Oh dear, whoppee! Ma says there may be hope for me yet given that another "labradork" has prooved that schemery and devilish plans are able to be made by such food conscious brains!

She often says I was not bred for brains.... Maybe just for sleekness and manouvreability!

Noah the Airedale said...

I never realised how evil labradudes could be.....Poor Mango, and now you've gone and hurt your leggie. Thank goodness for Norwood matie. He's a true pal.

Lorenza said...

I can't close my mouth after reading the whole story!
Dexter is... is.... oh-no.... I can't evey say the word!
I hope you are doing well!
Kisses and hugs

Huskee and Hershey said...

Yikes Mango, for the sake of your safety, you better come over and stay with us for a while... Beware of the Dexter!!

If you needs a lawyer just gives me a ring-a-ding. I may just even do it pro bono too.


violett said...

Hello Mango,
my mummy has laughed long at the amusing history.
You in a pink buggy! This is the picture of the year!
Lots of love

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

Mango you sure are going through a lot of trauma. Want to come over here and play with Taffy?

Molly :-)

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

Yet more proof that one can never truly trust their siblings... Although your acrobatic skills are most impressive (and left Mom wondering how your Mom managed to get a picture of your belly...). I think I may go beat up on Abby a bit just to keep her in her place.

Oh my DOGNESS, Mango! I'm just shocked and all bewildered by this most latest turn of events. I mean, what kinda family does such a thing to another family member? You're like the Sopranos or the Corleones or Cain and Abel or the Jacksons!

Well, I think it is most apparent that it's time for some family counseling.

Wiggles & Wags,

road-dog-tales said...

Wow! That's quite an elaborate plan just for a bit of extra attention for the Pea, but if you say so. At least you've got a Honey of a nurse there. Glad to know it was only a minor slip and fall that's got you laid up. That IS what happened, right? Anyway, did you get the acupuncture? Hope you're on the mend real quick, buddy!
