Cabin Fever Strikes!

It has been raining like monsoons end of days here forever!

Idiot momma is prone to making pointless statements to me like, "Oh Mango, at least it isn't snow."

Well obviously, duh, like it's totally MAY, OK? Moron.

The Mango is getting cabin fever.

Stupid PeeWee is even more annoying than usual. Can't a dude meditate without having those pointy teeth clamped down on his sensitive jowls?

Get off me, fool!

Now on the weekends, weather permitting, I am usually provided with a glorious meaty bone. This is called a recreational bone because not only does it help keep my teeth and gums healthy, but it also provides the mental recreations. Let me tell you, coordinating my jaws of doom to clamp down without tangling my lips in there whilst simultaneously managing to keep my frontal feet out of the way is quite challenging.

So imagine my delight to discover that I had been given a mid-week meaty bone to ease the strain of being cooped up with the doofus head.

Nom, nom, nom.

This one must have come from the bargain bin. Still has its furs attached.

Ow! What the heck? That was so embarrassing.

Just kidding. You don't think the Mango is so simple minded as to mistake his own leggie for that of a cow, do you?


Note to self...

Do NOT bitey striped meaty bones no matter how tempting.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!


Bouncing Bertie said...

Oh Mango, I think the solution to your troubles is for MangoMomma to give you a proper 'recreational bone' mid week.
After all, you're worth it, right?
Toodle pip!

Carol from Down Under said...

Mango, its the cabin fever. Gets you every time. If you have to chew on something, choose a black, hairy meaty bone. (Sorry Dexter). No worries, love Carol.

Reilly / Bree said...

Hey big dude - help is on it's way. Mom sent you you something good to chew on in the Dexters box of goodies. Hope the rain goes away soon - maybe you could start practicing a go-away rain dance?

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

We hear you, Mango. Or rather, mostly Franklin does, since I, Lola, when faced with rain simply nap through it. Oh, a sunbath would be very nice, but I cope. Franklin, however, is missing his hours and hours of pointlessly running all over the backyard. I hope it clears up soon for both our sakes.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I wonder if Mom will get me one of those special bones?


Anonymous said...

Maybe the Master should pause working on the fixer house and build an Arc instead? Just thinkin ;)

Musta thought you had a tiger bone there eh Mango? BOL! Glad you got a pacifier buddy :)

Waggin at ya,

Nicole said...

You poor thing Mango, I hope the rain lets up soon.

Just remember if the bone is not white, do not chew it.

Amber DaWeenie said...

Mee, brudder Max (DaOdderWeenie), and da peeps is headin' for Michigan on da weekend. We will bring some Florida sunshine to blow over your way! Enjoy!

Priscilla said...

We have thunderstorms here every afternoon, evening and midnight so my job is to keep an eye on those thunderbolts and answer to everyone of them. It's tedious but I'm a responsible girl. Sadly, my mom thinks that I'm too nosy and noisy!May be I should learn how to meditate like you and Dexter. ~ Eva

Jen said...

Oh dear Mango, the cabin fever is a bad, bad disorder, isn't it??

Here's hoping the rain stops soon!!

Gus said...

OOH, we like the idea of recreational bones. Maybe we can get the muzzer to try one.


♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

So sorry about the monsoons there, Mango. See, that is one good thing about snow v. rain - at least you can go out in the snow and play without getting all muddy. We have the rain here now and it looks like it is going to be around for days on end. Not sure what that means for your future weather, but we will try to steer it in a different direction.

Bones for recreation - now there's an idea the Momster hasn't found yet - we sure could use a bone or two or three here too.

Hope the sun comes out today for you.

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Oh! Mango ... heard about your rain. Don't you worry it will go away soon. You'll see n enjoy SUNSHINE soon. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Frankie Furter said...

OMD OMD... YOU (Mango RH) are suffering from Cabinet Fever too? Geeee Whiz.. I thought it was just ME.
Rain, Rain.. go AWAY.

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

I'm not missing the New England, for a change.

Stumpy would like a stripey furry b leg bone to much on!

rottrover said...

Mango. Dude... Are you washing your face like a kitteh?? Just askin'


Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

Guys, could you send some of that rain over this way? We desperately need it!


road-dog-tales said...

Oh, yeah, watch out for the stripey hairy meaty bones - NO BITE! BOL We could use a tiny bit of your rain, our swimming holes seem to have turned into puddles (not GOVERNOR Puddles, of course, but the kind you splash around in).

Hope you get to go outside for some exercise soon!

Corbin said...

Hehe that last picture gave momma a big giggle out loud!

Amber-Mae said...

Maybe a little nip on PeeWee's giggleberries should keep him away. TEE HEE

Maggie and Mitch said...

We haven't had a good meaty bone in sooooooooooo long! We are beginning to feel very unloved.

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Nubbin' Tails said...

We have had the yucky rain here too! And we got bones last night! They are the best! Sister Jada tries to eat her entire back foot sometimes. I never understood why that sounded appetizing!


Mr. Nubbin'

PeeS. Hope you get sun soon!

Sue said...

We're having rain here today, but it's a good thing. You see, Mom gave us all baths this week so Dr B wouldn't be offended by our nice earthy smell. So now we can play in the mud and smell like real dogs again.

Wild Dingo said...

well, i'm so glad you made that note. Juno bities Loki's back leg all the time. i can't imagine why. they are scrawny and have no meat on the parts she bities... i keep telling her to go for the thigh but i think she prefers the recreational part of his leg...

Anonymous said...

Oh Mango I definately agree that it was all the fault of cabin fever!

Maybe MangoMom should give you a pre-weekend bone to help out!

woo woos, Tessa

Anonymous said...

Mango Momma should be giving you a recreational bone EVERY day!

It has been raining here too for the last several days. Gonna rain again tomorrow--poo--(no, not raining poo, poo that it's raining!), but Saturday and Sunday are supposed to be clear...then next week--rain again.

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

We vote for the mid-week recreational bone - we'd like one too!! We'd better talk to our Mom about it.

Chester said...

Lucky dawg to have a mid-week mental stimulation bone to rid you of the wild-willies. I am doin' a rain dance right now so I can annoy, uh-TALK the PUs into givin' me a nice chew this evenin'. (Like I really NEED to do the rain dance-it seems to be doin' just fine without my soft-shoe.)

Woofs and recreational slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Mack said...

Sometimes a guys gotta do what a guys gotta do.....

violett said...

Mango Oh, poor boy! It is again the sun shine ...
The last two pictures are so sweet. You look like a cute baby
Lots of love

Marjie said...

I find those furry bones sometimes. It can be embarrassing.


Lexi and Jasper the Danes said...

Hey Mango at least your human doesn't make you go walking in the rain like ours!!!

*Psst* we mistake our feet for meaty bones as well ;)

Licks and lots of slobber,
Lexi and Jasper the Danes

Kari in WeHo said...

ouch ouch dont hurt your poor leg!


CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Mango, At least they didn't catch you on video assuming your own foot was trying to steal your meaty bone.... I feel so sorry to that dude!

Hope your rains end soon. We've been blasting the heat here! May??? Really!

Benny and Lily said...

BOL, we think you pinned Pee Wee but good!
Benny & Lily

Lorenza said...

If you are bitting your own striped bones.... I guess your cabin fever is serious!
I wish you a better weather!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Kitty+Coco said...

Maybe you should send Coco a memo on not biting the furry donut located on her butt. Yup. Sorry for your fevers Mango. Maybe the sun will come out soon.


The Boston Lady said...

Hope the sun stays out for your weekend Mango. Otherwise you might start chewing on those black furry bones that lay about your estate. Ann TBL

Lucille, the Great Dane from Italy said...

No Mango, no one had any doubts, we all knew it was just a joke...
You leg is perfectly fine, we know that...
We will not let anyone know that you are preparing a false insanity to get rid of black legs ehm ehm ehm...
No, not true!!!!
Good idea to get the bones for your weekend, must put it in the grocery list for my human too... she always goes to the super on friday evening or sat morning...
Good idea my friend :)
Ciao Lucille

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Abby is also an extremities chewer, although she prefers her paws. Perhaps we need a support group?

At least you don't have to gear up in a plastic bootie and e-collar every time you go out, like Jed does. He had surgery on his left rear leg last week and has to keep his mid-thigh to toe bandage dry. And in one piece. And on his leg.

ForPetsSake said...

BAH!! Too funny. We're about to go into a bunch of rainy days here and I suspect the boredom and frustration's going to set in...gotta go get some bones!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hi Mango - I know I'm reading this late but we couldn't get round to it at the time and we had left it "unread" in GR to make sure we come back to it!! Anyway, am hoping your cabin fever is over now. Those pictures of you chewing your own leg are just too funny!!

Btw, Hsin-Yi says she hasn't replied properly to your human yet about the latest dancing email but I just wanted to say that I am JUST like you. Some days, I'm a canine Fred Astaire - others, I'm like a lump of rock (a rock would probably have more animation). It really frustrates Hsin-Yi too. And that's WITH treats! Can you imagine last year when we were in Brisbane and they were forcing us to try and do all this WITHOUT treats??!! No wonder me & Hsin-Yi were getting so stressy!
