That's right! The Mango has completed his official entry into Honey's Dancing with the Dog Stars Competition.

Now.... before you watch, I need to tell you a few things. First of all, I have not been my usual peppy self and getting up and down can be quite challenging so we had to trim out some of my best moves like the mastiff roll over. Secondly, Momma says that I can be "stubborn and dim witted" which I believe is an insult. But by that she refers to my improvisation.

When you watch, you might think that about in the middle I stopped dancing. NO WAY! I was merely savoring the nommy cookies that had collected in my jowls during rehearsal.

Finally, you will need to turn up the volume because the music is kind of soft.

I made the movie BIG SCREEN to accommodate my full self, so to watch it, just click here!

Did you watch it? Good. Now, you can watch a somewhat more entertaining version here.

Let me point some important facts out to you. The number one fact is that you can put a ballet skirt on the DOH, but a ballerina that does not make.

Hello? She was pulling so hard on my leggie to keep from toppling over that I almost flipped myself.

I know this one is blurry, but I think it shows my frustrations with not being allowed to dance as I pleased. Look at me! Legs akimbo, jowls flying and momma totally forgetting to turn out.

Is it any wonder I am exhausted?

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

You should be on Dancing With The Stars! Very nice!

Corbin said...

You've got some serious moves, dude!

Amber-Mae said...

OMD Mango that was fabulous & funny!!! I'm impressed by how your momma was able to do those ballerina moves. And were just spectacular! I loved everything about it. That was a fantastic choice of music too. It's so interesting to see a massive dog dance to a ballerina music. TEE HEE

You're gonna get extra points for that costume & prop! Well done big guy! You're going to be a hard one to beat that's for sure.

Well done, MangoMan!! You watched Honey's tutorial on weave-moves and totally rocked! Mom really liked your costuming - especially the ballet skirt-with-fanny-pack look. Quite the fashion statement!!

Thanks for being adventurous enough to give it a shot! You were brilliant!

Mango, that was a wild dance with the funny little scarf thingy.

We worried a little when you choked on that treat, but you recovered nicely.

Your neighbors must enjoy the live entertainment.

Mango man! your DOH! what's with that develope she's doin'? I mean seriously, did she have a few drinks before the routine? ah man... but you my friend, you steal the show. your smooth moves and those hot haunches... delicious! Baryishnikov better watch out. the mango is in the ballet HOUUUUSSSSE! oh yeah.

Marjie said...

I'm not even doing the dancing, and I am totally exhausted just watching you! You deserve to win, buddy, with all that grace in a full sized doggy! Good job keeping your Momma under control in her ballerina outfit!


Niamh said...

Yeah Mango! Great routine even if we were worried that your momma would fall over a couple of time during the dance. Loved the munching of treats in the middle - you know what is important in the choreography! The ending on the platform was excellent.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

We are speechless - almost. We have never seen choreography better suited to the guest star, so full kudos to Mango Momma as the dance pro for developing such an appropriate dance for the relentlessly dapper Mango. And full kudos to the RH for dancing with such heart, so soon after your medical contretemps. The sheer determination with which the RH heaved himself up to pass through the Mango Momma's legs and finish the dance left us without a dry eye in the house.

10's for Mango!
And 10's for momma for putting on that ballet skirt!
I loved the routine! Such grace, such smooth turns! And the ending was superb!

Ms. ~K said...

You and your mom are the best!
I loved the videos... both of them!
Kisses and hugs

KB said...

Oh Mango! I am laughing and laughing and laughing. You and your mom are awesome together. The perfect combo... Funny how she does most of the moving in the dance but you have perfect timing for your key moves. Way to go Dude!!!!

Laura, Lance, and Vito said...

Oh my, that was awesome!!!! I just love his spins, am seriously impressed at your weaving moves, and the liver incident was just perfect. Really great job!

Michelle said...

Love the improv! Mango, you are one cool dude.

road-dog-tales said...

That was - dare we say? - graceful! Yes, it was! Um, is that ballet skirt around your neck? We love all the hard work that must have gone into this routice. We are a little disappointed that there were no sequins. Nonetheless, fabulous effort!

Well hi there, you must be the famous Mango!

Oh my goodness that is so awesome! You did such a super job Mango! It turned out perfectly. His moment of distraction makes me feel better about Jackal's refusal to jump (his jacket was restricting him). The bloopers made me feel better too (Jackal isn't quite that stubborn hehe) and were very entertaining. Thanks for sharing those too. :D
