Costume Fail


First an important reminder to all my fellow Dancing with the Dog Stars doggies.
You know the movie that I posted of my big dance routine?
Well, Honey reminded me that per the rules of her DWTDS competition, entries need to have their original sound track but it is OK to add music as well so I made new versions with the sound restored. This is a very important rule because she wants the competition to be as much as real life as possible where you can hear your human telling you what to do and what not.
And you have to do your dance in one continuous take. No post processing (well, except for you blooper movie).


Now, regarding my outfit for the mastiff ballet. If you can imagine, knuckle head momma originally wanted me to wear my ballet skirt as, well, a skirt! She said, "Oh Mango, it will look so flattering and slimming and your dangly bits will keep it in place."

Thus the following photo in which I believe my body language tells you what I thought of that idea.






As if, lady! This is the only trick I will do with that dorky toot toot knotted around my nether regions.






Typical. Idiot PeeWee says, "Momma! I can do the ballet! Put the skirt on me!"

Stupid polka dog.





But I persuaded him to join me in my protest. Us guys have to have some dignity, right?






Meanwhile, it got suddenly jungle wicked pissah hot lately. So we're doing a lot of this. I was so slow on my walkie today that momma thought we were maybe caught in a time warp or something and even Pea was quite content with a short half mile.






Turn on the AC, stingy witch!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

You actually look pretty good in that skirt!

Nicole said...

oh Mango, black looks so good on you, very ummm elegent :-D

Niamh said...

Just say No to skirts!!! Do not do anything that would take away from your relentlessly huge masculinity. Lie-in protests are good. Stay cool.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Gretchen has very politely pointed out that girls wear tutus and fur-boys already have on furry tights - sorta' - so...

Hope you get some AC soon. Sis is dragging on her walks too, but Gretchen has never been too hot in her life.

violett said...

can not stop laughing!
Mango in a skirt. No, really, that's too funny.
One can quite clearly see what you think about it ...
Kisses for my girlfriend Mango *lol*

Peppy Sheppys said...

It is wicked hot here, too. We have the ACs on for Otis who gets most miserable in the heats. Perhaps he needs to wear a toot toot to allow the breezes in his nethers?

We are STILL enjoying watching your dancing movies. Wonderfuls!

Sheps w/Pep, Otis & Edgrr.

Frankie Furter said...

Well now I'm thinkin since it is SOOOO hot you could truly dance Au Natural. I'm just sayin.

Jazzi said...

The skirts dont look that bad but I totally understand you not liking them!! Nice dances you two!!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

I agree us guy dogs should just say NO to skirts.

(sigh) yeah the HEAT prevented me from taking full advantage of my beach walk. I was actually well behaved and walked at a leisurely for Mom pace, that SHE prefers. It was just too hot to drag her around.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Admit it, Mango! There's a little cross dresser inside of you and you were thrilled to wear that skirt! There's no shame in that!

Happy tails!
Stumpy and her bean

Mack said...

Mom says guys who do the ballets are awesomely manly. Maybe I should give it a try???

Happy MD Weekend!

Reilly / Bree said...

Shirts - on no - do I start calling you the Big Dudette now? Mango - Big DUDE ! The skirt has to go, it's just not dignified on you. I hear you about the heat - we are heading for 90 today, way to hot for a fuzz butt like me!

FiveSibesMom said...

You two look very cute in the tutus! I'm with the others, turn on the A/C Mango Mama! The FiveSibes have been spread out on the kitchen floor in the A/C for three days now. They took a break yesterday for some baths and hit the pool before that, but otherwise, it's flat out in the kitchen. Hey, what ever happened to having a real spring where the temps gradually went up instead of this jump from 60s to 90s??? The Five didn't even have a chance to blow their coats yet. Sheesh. 90s with a fur coat on. Whew, back to the kitchn! Stay cool Mango & Dex...

Erika and Blair,xoxo said...

BOL Mango and Dexter in skirts!

Berts Blog said...

Mango dude, NEVER give in. SAY NO. Stand your ground.....Your a man now....NO TUTU......

Wyatt said...

Well at least the skirts are in manly colors, not pink..it could be worse...heehee.
We are looking forward to seeing your dance!

Dear Mango and Dexter,
I am no at all sure what to say about your outfits. We've been known to model headwear around the holidays, but I know I could talk Cosmo into some payback if our person ever tried to dress us in a skirt. If you need some hints on how to deal with a special response to this outrage, please stop by TBD. Your friend, Clover

Mango Dude! Dexter Dude! Skirts? That is so not right. Your friend, Cosmo

OK guys... my opinion? NO SKIRTS!!!

Woofs,

Sue said...

Fudge, Sky and Noah support you. They say real dogs don't wear skirts. Tsar says "Whatever".

Morgan, Tsar and the Porties

rottrover said...

Yeah. We preferred the cape-look, dude. And smack that little brown nose Dexter for us. Mom thinks he's cute, but that sort of enthusiastic compliance is disgusting.

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

A skirt? Seriously? Whatever was the DOH thinking? I mean, if we can't catch glimpses of your dangly bits, we start to worry that something very untoward has happened. What is this 'heat' stuff you are talking about? We've got the air conditioning on - outside! It's 33 degrees out and snowing!!! Mom thinks we might have inadvertently moved to the North Pole... And we agree with the above comment - Dexter's enthusiastic compliance is a little disgusting! ;-)

Oh, and Mom finds that 'time warp' comment hilarious. I think her brains have frozen...

I can't believe I somehow missed the posts with your videos! I just went back and watched them and you guys are pretty good! I don't think those skirts are particularly flattering for you guys, though! BOL! It doesn't make your butt look big, if that helps any!

dewdana said...

OMD Mango!!! I have fallen behind so lost track of your rehearsals so I am TOTALLY shocked to see how well you did! Most impressive! I love that you added a sneeze- that was very artistic of you!
Pea did a great job too but we all know that suck up labbies will do anything peoples tell them to do!

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Ah... I love boys in toot toots!!! You're handsome in anything Mango!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We like Frankie's idea, Mango, but you and Dexter both look pretty good in those tutus. It got pretty warm here today too, but we are all enjoying the a/c.

Marjie said...

If my Momma doesn't turn on the AC, my brothers will. They hate the wicked pissa jungle heat. Do you guys want I should send them there for a visit?

Drools,
Thor

Ludo van Doggy said...

OMD Mango, what a swat! Getting you twos video entries in over a week early. Our internets be playing up so we will has to go over to Grandpawents to watch the videos unless we want to sit here all night waiting for them to load. BOL!
Ah, glad you stood up for yourselves on the skirt issue!
~lickies, Ludo

Maggie and Mitch said...

How embarrassing for you. Boys do NOT wear skirts, unless it's a kilt!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Benny and Lily said...

Oh my!! We won't tell a soul.

Maggie Mae said...

You guys look great no matter what you wear OR don't wear! ;)

Woofs and Licks,

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Maggie and Mitch got it right about dudes and skirts. Doesn't Mango Momma know that pinching up their dangely bits is how they get bulls to buck in rodeos? Glad you set her straight on the toot toots.

We already commented on how much we liked your dances, so we'll move on to the AC problem. Jed just pants like he's going to have a heart attack and mama is well trained to turn on our AC. Of course, mama hates the wicked jungle heat as much as Jed does, so it's not a hard sell. So Mango, try panting and slobbering really hard for a sustained period of time and see if that gets your AC turned on. Good luck!

Must be time for the mastiff pool to be unearthed from the garage and filled to the brim, too.

Jed & Abby

Lorenza said...

Oh-oh!
I guess that skirt looks better on your mom than on you two!
I have been doing the same thing... but I don't have AC here! Hmmm....
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Wild Dingo said...

Dooooodde! You're very lucky you didn't have to do your dance routine with that Justin Timbertree dork. I just do NOT want to see a wardrobe malfunction on a tutu worn by the Relentlessly Huge. You'd hear howls all the way from here. Oh my eyes... thank you for saving them.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh poor Mango.. can't believe your mom put a skirt on you!! (can't say the same abt Pee Wee since he wanted it...)

The AC in our house has been working pretty hard lately too.. the heat is too much to bear!

Roo said...

BOL! Y'all wearin tutus is toooooo much! Hahahahaha.

Maybe practicing your ballet routines inside under the air would work. You could use the furniture as props? ;P

Waggin at ya,
Roo

tula said...

a nice shade of red lipstick would make woo's outfit completo!

just sayin.

Karen said...

Ready for Swan Lake for sure!! So which one of you is the white swan and which is the black swan?? BOL
I think a movie remake is in order, Ms. Portman move over.
Keep cool!

Love the new header!!

Kasha The Dainty Great Dane said...

Hello Mango and Dexter,

YES you should protest...I don't even get to wear a ballet skirt and noway should you dudes!!

I know I haven't been around to visit lately but I'm back now and can't wait to see your dance routines.

It's really hot here today and I just made mom turn on the AC.

Take Care.

Bouncing Bertie said...

I too think you should be wearing tights. What better way to show off those perfectly formed dangly bits? Oh, go on, don't be shy, you know you want to really....
Toodle pip!
Bertie.

Michelle said...

Oh Mango, I'm with you man! That fluffy girl-skirt totally takes away your manliness! You haven't spent all that time cultivating great goobers to be put into THAT silly thing! Stand up for your rights!

Deefor said...

That skirt thing isn't you. Maybe Lorenza's abuela can make you a manly outfit.

Chester said...

Your tu-tu is more like a two-two by four-four, Mango and the DOH has some kinda nerve makin' you parade about your estate in it - let alone be captured digitally in your shame.

Pawsonally I'm thinkin' it woulda been a good time to relieve one's self of inner waste, if'n you know what I mean.

Woofs and wicked pissah hot slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Mango, Dexter,
your human is confused... you are boys, not girls!!!
You need a tie, not a skirt!!!
Made me laugh like an idiot!!!
Great fun, I love you!
Ciao Lucille
