Pea Goes Walkies and Some Zoomies

Having partaken of not one, but TWO, most stimulating walkies on Saturday, combined with curiously draining sun baking, come Sunday, I was more than happy to enjoy my meaty bone in the yard whilst the Pea went off on his walkies in search of the last of the big snow.

Nommy, nom, nom, nom.

There are still some wicked pissah big snow banks to be found, but they are not looking all that fresh.

Hey! See the cop car in the background? Must be a snow bank stake out.

It is always most intriguing to discover what is buried in the giant snow that lines our local parking facilities.

Here the Pea discovers a wheelie contraption that was likely abandoned by some drunken college student who had wheeled down to the center for additional libations only to forget his chosen mode of transport for the evening.

Ever the optimist, the little dude always takes a detour to the fence surrounding the cement pond to find out if it has opened for the season.

Almost, buddy, almost.

Upon his return, he was most oddly full of beans. Toot toot! Actually, I don't really know what that means, but he certainly was bouncy.

This was likely due to his less than labraspeed walkies of late and denial of tennis ball so that he can recover from his lyme diseases without becoming addicted to pain killers.

Well, I, Mango, was feeling a bit bouncy myself. After all, it is springtime which brings nice soft grass for running upon and hot sun to stimulate my mentals.

Oh do forgive the blurry photos. It seems the DOH has still not learned to hold herself still when chronicling our action. Or, perhaps, the breakneck speeds at which I move defy digitals.

Check out my hind quarters extension. Oh yeah, who has been doing his therapy ball stretches like a good doggie?

Here we come! The two best doggies in the whole wide world (just ask momma).

I don't know about the squirt, but I was WIPED OUT! Needed a rest before making my way across that big old yard to my water bowl for some refreshments.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Ohhhh how joyous to be able to lay in the sun Mango, I sure hope it warms up a lot here so I can leave the back door open for Richie & Ronnii to toddle in and out as they please.

Pepsi the Lazy Bum said...

Uh, the snow looks kinda... Yuckish. Looks like you got a great day out with the Pea!

But wait, why didn't you bring your little hatchling along?


Penny and Patches said...

Looks like you both had a great time! We're always amazed by your moves, Mango!

Mack said...

What great action shots!
Mom remembers the brown snow from when she lived in Oklahoma.
Pea seems all-cleared on the evil Lyme monster.


Reilly / Bree said...

That was some pretty stunning action moves there - rippling muscles and all. Mom remembers dirty big piles of snow from she lived in Minnesota - they really put the yuk factor into winter.

Amber DaWeenie said...

B-U-T-ful Spring day...snow dat is melting....yep...I would say's dat its a day for zoomies!

Niamh said...

Any snowbank is a good snowbank! Hope Pee Wee finds more interesting things in them. Glad you are feeling a little spring fever and running around your estate.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Priscilla said...

Isn't it better to run on the grassy ground better than the snowy one? Enjoy the sunshine!

Frankie Furter said...

Ahhhhhhh the JOYS of SPRING.
You were soooooo fast in that one photo that the flashy beast couldn't catch you!!!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I'm sure Ms Springer would have been impressed by your moves AND your suds!

Her DOH shared how wonderfully she's doing and that she khan SPRING into the air in a snap!

They are going to khall her Chloe - that is a beaWOOtiful name fur such a stunningly toned gal!

My DOH wonders if that is how The Beastie's bummmmmmm looks in real life?

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Looks like you had the same great weekend weather as we did. A bit warm, a bit early, but Mom says it sure beats snow and rain - we beg to differ.

You are looking mighty trim and sleek there, Mango - good job on the exercises.

We will be joining you in some good rest time today too.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Benny and Lily said...

Sounds like a fun weekend. You just don't know what you will find in a snow bank. Happee chewing Mango and Happee to see you and Pee Wee bouncing around

What a fun weekend! We were trapped indoors by horrible rains!!!

You boys sure are handsome!!!

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

hmmmm...seems like there was a weather mix up. It was just freeaking snowing here!

Looks like you two are in great shape and Pea is recovering nicely.

I'm thinking there might have been a Dunkin D's around the corner from that cop car.

sagechronicles said...

That's a might impressive snow bank you have there. I bet there was a lot of pee-mail to investigate. I bet you could even help the cops out with their stake-out of that bank!

Maggie and Mitch said...

Our snow piles are all gone and even this mornings' snow is history!
Your bone sure looks yummy, Mango. We haven't had one in ages!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Spring is here, spring is here;
Life is bones, and life is cheer; pring is the loveliest time of the year!

Kitty+Coco said...

Dear gawd! You were doing some sexy slo-mo action modeling there Mango. And the Pea was all McGyver in the snow (not sure if I spelled that right..the show was before my time).

Kitty and Coco

Carol from Down Under said...

Hi Mango, its funny not to see your yard in covered snow. Enjoy your Spring weather dudes. No worries, love Carol.

Ms. ~K said...

Looking good Mango and Dexter!
Spring Fever agrees with you both!

Ludo van Doggy said...

Phew, you almost made me tired just looking at you! Good work on the runnings about.
That's some really dirty snow you gots there!

Wild Dingo said...

well, it must be true that you are the 2 best doggies in the world, cuz i got the two baddest doggies in the world! oh yeah. i tell them that every day so they don't get a big head or anything. you think they believe me?

houndstooth said...

Holy cat feathers! I had no idea you could be so agile, Mango! It's good to see Dex looking better, too!

I can't believe you still have snowbanks!


Oskar said...

The sunshine rocks & it looks like you both took full advantage of it!

Nubbin wiggles,

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

Ya know Mango...the second I started reading your post, Scruffy farted. While your adventures were exciting, it was difficult to give them the attention they were due as I had to hold my breath the entire time...his butt is under the chair and he has an amazing ability to waft things upward...or sideways...

Wowser...your snow is like is that it for Master Chew Sits for the season??

Your furs look a bit darker...perhaps a bit of sun bleaching with lemon juice will lighten them again???



the booker man said...


it's definitely becoming springish at your house for sures...gotta love some sunshiney 'n grass action! dexter looks like he's feelin' the betterment and that makes me happy happy joy joy! i'm kinda scared about what will appear out of that dirty mega snow pile as it full of the cautions when approaching it, okie dokie?

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Oh, you boys have been getting your exercise. I admire that, I really do. Keep up the good work fellas.

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

We have the same question as Pepsi: who's babysitting the Spawn while you're out sunbathing and bone noshing? Glad to see the Pea is feeling better and that he's getting some mental stimulations doing advanced detective work in the remaining snow banks. And YOU! TWO walkies in one day! We are most impressed with your rugged physique!

Jed & Abby

Sue said...

That was quite a workout. We're impressed. It is nice to soak up some sun in the yard.
