Evil Seizure Santa Pays a Call



WTF? There I was, having a nice sleep in when out of nowhere comes evil seizure Santa paying me a visit. Yuh, he liked to drag me into the wet room. A room not made for a doggie of relentlessly huge proportions such as myself.




That seizure Santa took hold of me in a most fierce and ungentlemanly manner, causing my leggies to move in ways that I did not care for. I even pushed the crapper off its placemat.






And the hand washy basin pedestal too.






I shook off that nasty chap as fast as I could and Momma and Master were right there to help chase him away. Momma even gave me some nommy ice cream to help me get my strength back.

At first PeeWee growled at me and I was kind of confused and kept sticking my snooter into corners of the estate in attempts to roust out the cowardly seizure beast from where he was hiding.

But he must have flown back up the chimney so I settled down to reclaim my mastiff energies because, frankly, I felt a bit tired.

PeeWee offered to do guard duty whilst I recovered my strength.







I wasn't bothered. He can be pretty brave in a pinch. Besides, what monster wouldn't be intimidated by a cracker labradog all barking and growling so I caught some shut eye whilst the Pea watched over me.



Don't worry. I feel fine. All rested up, a belly full of food and ready to face the day. I hear we have big snow on the way. Ruh roh.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. From Momma
Mango and Dex got up at 4 AM for a potty run. That isn't unusual and everybody did their business and went back to bed and I was looking forward to sleeping in until maybe even 6AM. It was not meant to be. I awoke at 5AM to the sound of Mango having a full blown seizure in the bathroom of all places (a room that he NEVER goes in to). His big bottom was blocking the door and you can imagine my concern with all the hard edges in there, but we could not get in and had to just talk him through it. He stopped after less than two minutes. He did seem to recover more quickly. In the past he had about an hour of disorientation, but this time he was doing well after just half an hour. I gave him some vanilla ice cream as recommended by one of our pals. Dex was afraid of him at first, but once Mango settled down, little Dex stayed very close. Well, at least it was easier to clean up the pee (he voided his bladder), but we'll keep that door shut from now on because of the danger of him hurting himself. Of course there are many places in the house where he could get hurt if he had a seizure. Given his size and strength, no telling what furniture would go flying. Yes, he did move both the toilet and the sink about 1/2 inch each which just goes to show how powerful he is. Poor guy. He is fine now. We'll just go about our day. A gigantic snowstorm is headed up the coast. Oh joy.

Oh, no, Mango - we had hoped that Evil Seizure would stay away. With Dex on alert, though, he should stay away.

Clive said...

Mango, we are so sorry to read that you had another seizure. We're very glad that you are over it now though and we hope they stay away for a long time.

Thinking of you all,
Clive and Murray

Priscilla said...

I let out a loud gasp when I read your title in my feeds!! That is terrible! Poor Mango :( How I wish Evil Santa Seizure would never return ever again!!! I hope he is better now.

Peppy Sheppys said...

Stupid evil seizure santa. Poor Mango and Mango's family. We had hoped he was done with you. Get lots of relaxing done today even though it is Boxing Day. If we see that monster we'll have Edgrr give him a good nip.

We hope you had a good pawliday in spite of the nastiness and we especially hope you ate lots of good tasty things.

Sheps w/Pep, Otis & Edgrrrr.

Mack said...

Maybe this will be the last one ever - we sure hope so. At least it didn't take him too long to recover.

Sugars,
Mack

JD and Max said...

Hiya Mango - sorry to hear a Santa seizure visited, but good on you and Dexter for getting rid of it so quick. Vanilla ice-cream sounds like an excellent remedy to keep it at bay. We hope it stays gone - grrrr to the Santa seizure beast!

Gus said...

Mango Man and Momma, Dexter Dude and the Dad..we are sorry the Seizure monster visited the estate again, what a bad time for him to come calling. We knew from the picture of Dexter guarding you, all concerned looking that something must've happened, even before we read the headline.

We hope you have a relaxing day and that the snow stormy does not cause too much tribbles at your place.

The Boston Lady said...

Oh Mango, what a way to start your Christmas day, but I'm glad you are doing okay and that Dexter stepped up to the plate and kept you safe.

Mango Momma, how frightening for you and the whole household. How odd that Mango doesn't usually go in that room, but did for this episode. Perhaps he wanted your cleanup to be easier. Hope the rest of your holiday goes better and stay safe with that storm. Ann TBL

Samantha said...

Oh Mango... many sorries you had to go through such a horrible (yes.. and disorienting) event this morning. Sweet that Dexter watched over you as you slept and very happy to hear that ice cream may help. Maybe a large helping of snowstorm to play in will help with recovery too? (The moving of the bath fixtures gives us a very good image of just how strong you are, Mango - yikes.) We are thinking about you lots.

Mango! We're glad you're ok! We got snow here, too. Enjoy the snow. Maybe it will be just what you need... unless you're like us... we stay in on the couch when it snows.

Twix said...

Are you sure Mango just doesn't like the sink and toilet where they are....????
Seriously, I'm sorry you had such a scary visitor. Maybe it is good news that the disorentation didn't last as long? I'm not sure.
I hope you two got lots of treats yesterday!
Snuggles,

LetMeTellYouATale said...

That must have been so terrifying :( I'm glad you are ok.

Stella said...

Sorry this happened to you, Mango, and hopeful that you won't get any more seizures. I am glad PeeWee helps you afterward. I am sure you would give up all the vanilla icecream there is to never have another one!

Thinking of you,

Stella, and Ali Z

Aw, Mango, we're sorry this happened again! Mom says she used to make sure Treat couldn't get to any stairs when she couldn't see her, either. I hope that the real Santa brought you some good loot, at least!

Mango Man,

Rest assured that I will give Evil Seizure Santa a good kick-up in his a**!

Oh Mango I am sorry that the seizure Santa came to pay you a visit. I hope you are feeling better and he doesn't visit again!

Maggie and Mitch said...

How awful for you, Mango! We don't want you to have any more of those seizures, ever! At least you got ice cream!
It's snowing at our house as we speak! yipppeeeeeeee

Love ya lots

Oh Mango - we wish the seizure monster would leave you alone. You are such a good boy and we don't want you to be sick. Hang in there buddy. Eat ice cream and keep the Dex close by. Love, Farley

Raymond and Busby said...

Crappity crap crap. We are on a sabbatical for a few days and just read your blog. Sorry to hear the darn monster attacked you again, massive Mango man. Wondering if the Pee Wee gave your parents any advanced notice this time around? It doesn't sound like it.

Glad you recovered in half the time as before. Did you have people over for Christmas? Were you stressed? I guess we are just looking for any answers at this point. We will purr for your ginormous and toilet moving self. xoxo

Oskar said...

Oh Mango, that evil stinky siezure monster trying to steal your Christmas makes me & my mom person most angry.

I hope he's gone for good this time!

hello mango its dennis the vizsla dog hay i am sorry yoo got a visit frum the eevil seezhure santa bad santa bad bad bad!!! ok bye

rottrover said...

Oh Mango Man. That SUCKS!! We think you were very smart to go into the cool tiled room where Momma could clean up easily. It must be so frightening for Momma and Master and Pea to witness your relentlessly powerful self in such a state. Our VET gave our mom some valium (not for her!) to squirt up our brother Buddy's pooper when he was being visited by the S.M., but she was never able to do it. I hope the rest of your weekend was just FUN.

HoundDogMom said...

Man Mango, we agree WTF. Does he not understand you were dreaming of yummy candy cane bones when he sneaked in. For sure the GRINCH of EVIL. We are glad you recovered quickly, and got to enjoy your day. The Hounddogs

Marjie said...

Oh, poor Mango! And poor Dex, too. I hope they both got ice cream!

That snowstorm will graze us, but we're "only" scheduled for about 6". One of my sons was supposed to fly from Scranton to Newark, and from there to Phoenix, and the flight into Newark was cancelled. So they put him onto a plane for Detroit, then Phoenix tomorrow. At least they didn't strand him in Newark! Think he's gonna love his spaghetti and meatballs tonight?

Carol from Down Under said...

Hi Mango, I was thinking maybe you kicked the shxx out of Seizure Santa and he fell into the crapper. Quick, get your Dad to nail the lid shut. Momma and Dad will just have to use the backyard like you and Dexter. Take care big fella. Love to you and Dex and the family. xx

Jan's Funny Farm said...

That is not a good present. We're glad Mango is okay. Must have been very scary with him in there and you unable to get in too. Purrs and tail wags.

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

Mango, dude. Would you have your Mom lock off any large holes in your house, so this Evil Monster cannot get in any more? While your destructions of the bathroom are Most Impressive, and the vanilla ice cream sounds Most Yummy, the rest of it does not sound so good. Take care of yourself, big guy. I'm glad you've got Dexter to look after you while you get some most-deserved rest. (Who'd've thunk it that Dexter would actually be useful for something, huh?) Take care - you worry us all when the Evil Seizure Monster attacks. Enjoy the rest of the holidays!

Dear Mango,

I hope the evil Seizure Santa would stay away for good... it makes me sad that you have to deal with such sickies too... little bro PeeWee is doing a great job looking out for you though.

Jake of Florida said...

Just saw this. I so hope the evil seizure Santa has had enough of his troublemaking. And gets stuck in the snow -- or carried away in a snow plow or something.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry amd Mom!

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Oh jeez! The bathroom's got to be the worst place, too! I'm thankful Mango was not hurt. And I'm hoping to never see or hear of a Seizure Santa (or any siezure) ever again!

Pepsi Bum said...

Sneaking up on you like that? The Seizure dude gotta go! Keeping our paws crossed that the Evil Seizure gets into something evil and is gone for good!

Hope you're feeling much better.

3 doxies said...

Okays, I know you said not to worries but I just can't help it! Dis makes me all kinds of nervous bout these siezures.
Is there any kind of medicines they can put you on to prevent them?

On a bad note...my neighbor's doggie has/had them. He had one on Christmas Eve and ran away cuz he was delirious. They can't find him nows and dats why dis all makes me so nervous. Of course, I knows your momma prolly don't let you outta her sight though.

We'll be thinking of you.

The Thuglets said...

OMD..Mango we really need to get rid of these awful horrible seizures! We are so pleased you are feeling better now.

At least you got some icecream. But there are better ways to get it!

We hope your Momma is ok and send her a big hug as we know how worried she will be.

Take care big man.

And Mango...stay safe!

Hi there,

We heard of Mango's seizure and wanted to send our best. Looks like Dexter knew exactly what to do.

Sorry that you had to have it at all, but thankful the mom and dad were home to help.

Sending positive healing energy.

Two Pitties in the City said...

Oh, that must have been so scary to wake up to. We're so glad to hear he's doing ok and he didn't hurt himself.

Kris said...

poor you and poor mamma and dad and the labradork hope you feel better soon and the vet gets you a treatment or something to scare that monster seizure away

achieve1dream said...

Poor guy!! Since he's having them so frequently maybe it's time to ask the vet for medication. Most vets don't put them on meds until they are having them several times a week. I don't know how frequently he's having them because I'm so bad about reading a bunch of posts all at once I don't really pay attention to the dates on them. I'm glad he recovered quickly and is unharmed. Please keep us updated. Huge hugs for Mango!

meowmeowmans said...

We heard about your seizures, Mango, and came over to tell you we are saying our best purrs and prayers for you. We are glad you are feeling better, and hope that the seizure monster stays away from now on.

dewdana said...

Glad you and the wet room made it through the monster attack in one piece. Most shocking that you moved that stuff around! I wonder if you are getting stronger against the monster since you recovered faster. Sounds like Pea is less upset too so that is good. Hope he stay away for longer now. :-(

The Army of Four said...

Mango Man - you need to kick those nasty things to the curb this year!
We're so thankful you're OK. Sending lots of prayers your way.
