Winter Solstice Pressies

This just in!
Lorenza is feeling much better, but still not out of the woods (actually, that is what momma said because reading her blog I don't see that she was ever in the woods).
But she could use good thoughts to make her 100% and also that her test results come back clean.

We participated in the Winter Solstice craft exchange this year, sponsored by Tsar and the Water Dogs. Idiot mom signed us up even though she isn't crafty herself, but she did manage to snag an official craft at the work place holiday auction to send to our pals (phew).

Anyhoo, I got the most amazing hand made cape from Zodiac, Legend, and Lyric.

It covers my large and possibly getting a chill self quite nicely and compliments my furs.

Momma says I have to share it with her, we'll see about that. I LOVE it! What a wonderful pressie.

I also got a matching fleece tug toy!

Which I did NOT want to share. Does that make me a bully? Who cares?

Come and get it if you dare, squirt (momma please take note that in this photo I am using my left rear boo boo leg to the max as instructed by Dr. Linda).


Thank you again Legend, Luric, and Zodiac and to your mom too whom I am certain had a hand in producing my wonderful presents.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. I know how busy everybody is (us too) and not always commenting on posts. That's OK. We are trying to read every post, but don't have time to comment either. No worries.

Love the cape! We don't like to share our toys either... and if it makes us bullies we don't care either!
We totally understand!

Looking good!

Gus said...

Love the cape, think it would also make a cool snuggle blankie, if you are into that sort of thing. We are, so we think lots of things work for that purpose.

Manly Wiggles,

Raymond and Busby said...

Nice cape! That should keep the chill off the Mango.

Texas The Doxie said...

Nice Cape Mango...don't worry 'bout sharin I don't.

Corbin said...

So, does that cape make you a super hero?!?!?! How cool!
ps. we've been reading but not commenting as much either. Today will be different though :o) We're going to say hi to everyone! I hope...

Niamh said...

You are very fashion forward in your new cape Mango! I recommend that you not share it with your momma because then she will want to wear it all the time. And don't let the Pee Wee have the tug toy. He will get it covered in labracooties.

Your friend,

PS. Ambrose is not being allowed to comment because he has been very bad - he ate a bar of soap!

Jake of Florida said...

That cape is so smart, we think you may have to fight Mango Mama for it. But how nice to receive something that does cover your handsome prone to chilblains self!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Mack said...

Your new snuggie is awesome! Plus a matching toy?? PeeWee is gonna be jealous!!

Frankie Furter said...

Another Cape fur your collection. Some day... you should get them all together and show everybuddy. Not as many as Lorenza's Dressy collection, OF COURSE, butt you do have an impressive group of them.

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

Mango is stylin' in that snuggly cape. And I love your diagonal black and white kitchen floor tiles. So retro!

pam said...

Nice cape dood! And in that next to the last picture are you, dare we say, dancing???

Dancing and now with added cape!

Sue said...

Wow, thats a nice blanket cape, Mango. Nicki made one for me a couple years ago and I scrunch it up and sleep on it almost every night. She didn't make me one of those toys, though. I'll have to talk to her about that.

Mom says Happy Winter Solstice. Now the days will start getting longer and that's important to her.

rottrover said...

We love your cape -- especially that it will keep your boo-boo leg/bottom warm. And MATCHING TUG!! You can't share that with PeeWee because then you'd have to share the cape and it would fit him like a tent!

You are stylin'. Nice choice Zodiac, Legend and Lyric!!

Kari in WeHo said...

We just love your cape :)


Marjie said...

Nice cape! Of course Mango Momma wants to "share it." Then she will just take it, because she wants to be as stylish as the Mango! Oh yeah!


Deborah said...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year my friend....or should I say neighbor! LOL

Benny and Lily said...

Oh Mango your cape is super cool. Bet if you go outside you could fly

Martha and Bailey said...

What a wonderful cape Mango, you look like Super Dog!!!
We are happy to see that Lorenza is feeling better but we are not sure about the woods either.
We stopped by to say Thank you for the Xmas card.
Both you and Dexter look very handsome indeed.
We hope ours reaches you - we were surprised yours got here so quick but perhaps you wore that cape to the post office.
Much love
Martha and Bailey xxx

brooke said...

Cool! Fancy cape and matching toy! Work that leg Mango!

Carol from Down Under said...

Mango, you look positively regal. As for sharing, I think there will be quite a few households struggling with that in a couple of days. We enjoyed the summer soltice so now our days are getting shorter boo hoo. No worries, love Carol.

The Boston Lady said...

Mango, surely you will cook up an adventure featuring your cloak of many colors? Lovely and so cozy looking. I don't blame your momma for trying to take it for herself. Ann TBL

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

What an awesome Cape Mango. You are "Wonder Dog" now...

Awesome pressie, Mango. Bet you will like that cape when the snows fall and the temps dip. Good boy for using that leg.

We are disappaaring for a bit too, too much going on here soon. We are going to try to read here and there but we sure hope we don't miss anything important. We just might get to that Mark as Read point and w so do not like to do that.

We hope you and all of your family have a great Christmas.

Happy Holidays.

houndstooth said...

I love that cape on you! It looks fantabulous!

Whew! Busy doesn't even begin to describe it!


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

You look stunning in that cape! And I don't blame you for wanting the toy all to yourself - PeeWee seems like he's a bit of a nudge, if you know what I mean... And it's only bullying if it's being done to you... *grin*

Great looking cape Mango!!! Since Christmas is only a few days away, I say you'd better share your stuff with Dexter if you want to remain on Santa's 'Good' list!!

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas and fantastic New Year!!

ocmist said...

Mango, what a beautifully awesome horse-blanke... um, Mango cape! You sure have some great friends to make something so pretty for you! They are pretty talented too, if they make play toys as well! The CCC
