My Date with Cinnamon - Part 2

Let see... where did we leave off? Oh yes, Cinnamon and I had just finished a most exhausting yet strangely exhilarating time break dancing with some totally rocking dogs.

Well, of course that led to the pangs of hunger, right?

Cinnamon suggest we go to something called a Susie restaurant. Never heard of such a thing, but being a gentleman, I obliged.

Then, a most curious event transpired.

Upon the arrival of another patron to the mysteriously name Susie bar, Miss Cinnamon underwent some sort of disturbing transformation.

She leapt from her seat in a rather unladylike manner leaving the Mango to wonder if this was some sort of odd New Zealand form of dining in which one is deprived of foodables.

What is a Mango to do?

Well, as luck would have it, who should appear but my good pal, Chrome along with, huh? Miss Agatha? Talk about your odd couple...

And we were away!

I sure wish Chrome had brought a saddle or maybe even a chariot because let me tell you that bouncing around on top of a horse is not the most comfortable state of affairs.

But what regard had I to a small pinch in my nether regions as I felt it was of utmost importance that we pursue Cinnamon on her odd and confounding chase.

Not sure what compelled Chrome to take the difficult route. One would think a tempered canter about the far end of the wall would have sufficed.

To be continued...

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Thanks for bringing such a big smile to my face, Mango!! I have always loved your 'dramas' and this one was hilarious!

Roo said...

OMD! Mango your massiveness is gonna give poor Chrome swayback! You do look quite handsome in your fox hunting get up ;) That Cinnamon was pretty sly hiring a fox so you'd have to chase her ;P

Waggin at ya,

ArtemisiaFSS said...

Mommy says in order to ride a horse comfortably you has to post. This makes no sense at all but she says you hold on with your knees and you don't bounce around. She is very envious of the horse ride.

What is wrong with Cinnamon, why did she run off like that? Is she crackers?

Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Mango, we enjoyed reading about your date - nice to see you are keeping yourself busy!

Mack said...

What an exciting date!
But did you ever get your cheeseburger hold the onions???

Amber DaWeenie said...

Oh, me is sittin' on da edge of my seat waitin' to see what happens next!!!

(Mango, do you need a bandaid for your butt?)

Agatha and Archie said...

I think I brought the riding outfit that was too big.... And I forgot to put on my lipstick(you really never know who is going to photograph you when you are riding....)Hee hee You do look dshing my dear boy in your riding outfit,,,Has Lacie seen you in it?Just saying... Love Agatha
Archie can't type because he issprawled on the kitchen floor because he is sooo hot.... but he says hi....

Berts Blog said...

Oh Mango, you always make my Vickie laugh.....

I would never laugh at you because to me you are "Too Cool"

And what is with Cinnamon?

Hurry with "The Rest Of The Story"


houndstooth said...

Hee hee hee! It looks like this date just got a lot more complicated!


Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie said...

Oh we do hope Agatha is OK. We are very worried.... Umm Mango did you stay on your trusty steed as he leapt over the wall? We do hope we don't have to wait too long for the answers. We may not sleep tonight for worrying!

Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie

Lassiter Chase and T said...

You only ordered a 15 pound cheeseburger -- you aren't on a diet are you? I guess you were just being polite in front of your date. Too bad they didn't sell cheeseburgers there.

Frankie Furter said...

OMD OMD... this date strangely reminds me of some of Dennis' Adventures.

Jen said...

Oh goodness!! I needed a laugh this morning- in the midst of a possible house buying (still dealing with the bank), foster dog frenzy around here, I need a little laugh. Thanks Mango!!!!

Can't wait for the next installment. Have to make sure Miss Agatha is ok!!

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

I can't believe Cinnamon left you for that fox!

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
Stumpy and me

DianeTaylor said...

OMG Cinnamon - come back to the MANGO MAN.....Bill, so what have you been doing lately? Get those dumbass football people to stop the madness and get started with the NFL season - ok?

Ms. ~K said...

Well, I just shot Caffeine Free Diet Coke (my drink of the morning) through my nose and on the keyboard when I saw Parcells! The picture of Agatha riding side saddle is too much!
Mango, what do you expect when you date a "hound"? :)

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

Cinnamon's transformation looks like how I feel--wish my eyeballs could do that!

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Oh Mango, I would be glad to show you how a real lady behaves in a "susie" restaurant. Being a Japanese Chin, I am an expert.


HoundDogMom said...

That Cinnamon is keeping you on your toes for sure. We look forward to the rest of your date. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

This gives new meaning to "who let the dogs out?"

Corbin said...

Dude... that horse ride looks painful, and I don't even have those parts to sympathize with!!!

brooke said...

hahahahah I cant wait for part 3!

Tessa the Maltese said...

Oh my goodness, Cinnamon is after a Fox and Mango's neather region is hurting, Agatha is tumbling and will Chrome make the jump????

Why this is better than those hooman Soap Opera's!

I just can hardly wait to see what happens next!!!!

woos, Tessa

Daisy Dog said...

Oh Dear! We hope Miss Agatha lands safely! Thank you for sending over some furiends to wish me well! It always helps to have support from everyone! Its greatly appreciated. I get to come home tonight!

Wild Dingo said...

cinnamon sure looked cracked out. i should know. hope it's only temporary. it is contagious tho, so be careful.

Anakin Man said...

Poor Mango!
We are sure the fox doesn't have anythings you don't have.

Can't wait to find out more-
hugs from the girls,

Cool adventure, Mango - even if a bit on the bumpy side. Wonder who that fox could be?

Hope you find Miss Cinnamon soon.

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

OMG! MANGO! That ride has got to hurt the precious Mango jewels! Do be careful my friend!!! I hope you find Miss Cinnamon soon!

Benny and Lily said...

what an awesome date, but you should order something a little lighter like a 10 lbs cheesburger on your dtae
Benny & Lily

Au and Target said...

MOL, Mango you are the coolest dog :-)

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Man, we hope you cleared the stone wall, RH! Being as you're almost as big as Chrome, you probably could have just run & jumped the course yourself more safely - especially for Chrome [and your dangly bits]. Being part beagle, Abby understands completely about having a STRONG prey drive, but has to wonder if Miss Cinnamon should have been allowed to venture so far from home without a prey-savvy chaperone. Not that you aren't a most perfect gentleman, of course, RH, but you can't protect Miss Cinnamon from the dangers inherent in irresistable instincts you can't understand. Jed, on the other hand, has years of experience in protecting Abby from herself. He is available to offer free advice that is worth every penny it costs, should you require assistance.

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

OMD...that Agatha...and where is this Susie's restaurant of which you speak?? The Lacie would be delighted to delighted to partake of some SSSSSSHHHHH SHEEM EE...

So Mumsie and Daddy are in Hilton Head and well they almost got hit by a plane today. Yeppers...this plane's engine stalled and dropped like a stone (sightseeing plane) and people jumped out of their beach chairs screeching and sayin' lookit that...it's gonna crash!!!!! Mumsie actually turned over on her boogie board upon which she was floating to note the descending plane...sheesch.

Could I have the cell # of your horse friend??? He's HOT...!!


Lorenza said...

That Susie place!
What is going on with that fox??
I hope you were able to catch Miss Cinnamon!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hi Mango - I'm FINALLY catching up!! I've been saving up your posts coz I wanted to make sure I had time to enjoy them properly - hee! hee! I LOVE it! So hilarious - I nearly died laughing when Cinnamon's eyes popped out at the fox in the sushi bar - ha! ha! Ha! Can't wait for Part 3! And the dancing - oh gosh - talk about seeing another side of Cinnamon!!

Oh yeah - since your Momma has used the "Mark All As Read" button, you might have missed my posts about my humans' NZ adventures - so bring your Momma over to my blog when you have the time - we think she'd enjoy the pictures! (and don't worry - I managed to persuade Hsin-Yi not to post all 1,000 pictures that she took - ha! ha!)

Honey the Great Dane
ps. Oh! I've only just sent off your medal today! Sorry it's so late but it took time to get them engraved and then they came while my humans were away - blah-blah-blah - anyway, hopefully you'll get it soon! Jed & Abby are also sending some little trophies too! And I hope you contacted that Designer Duds for Dogs lady OK? I can't wait to see you in some debonair bow tie & collar!

Maggie Mae said...


What a wunderful date you had wif Cinnamon! I am sure dat her will remember it furever! :)

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

KB said...

Mango, You're as big as Chrome, making it all the funnier! I hope that you catch up with Cinnamon but, if she's on the heels of a fox, that'll be a rough job.

Loved the naked break dancing!

achieve1dream said...

Oh my this is hilarious! I'm going to have to read the comments now hehe. I guess now I know why Chrome doesn't mind me laying across his back. I'm nothing compared to hauling the Relentlessly Huge over huge jumps lol!

achieve1dream said...

After reading the comments I finally understand why Chrome gave me back his fanshy manshy cell phone . . . he's attracted the attention of the BEAST! :D

Aniemother said...

Oh my! What an exciting life you have, Mango! ;)


Karen Raye and Bentley Beargrass said...

Good laugh, big Dude but we're still wondering if you ever got your hamburger? If not, gotta be some really loud stomach grumbling going on there!

Dory and the Mama said...

OMD...what a fence...or ummm...cliff hanger....how will we ever wait for the next installment!!

Dory, Jacob and Bilbo

K9 Katastrophie said...

This is most exciting!!! Cant wait to hear more!


violett said...

A great adventure!

The Mango Momma a round of applause for the creative outpourings.We laughed tears

Marjie said...

Mango! Dude! You should have stuck with the dancing, and skipped the Susie restaurant.


Oskar said...

What a grand adventure!

Hahameow...you dogs get into lots of mischief!

Kitty+Coco said...

Oh your poor Nards! No wonder a horse says "Ney ney ney NOOOOOOOO". Maybe you should take Cinnamon to Denny's and show her what a real plate of food looks like.

Your adventures are our favorite by the way.

Hi Uncle Mango, I didn't know you could ride a horse. Why did Cinnamon go play chasey instead of eating. Can't wait to hear more of your date. No worries, and love, Stella

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

Wow. Um. Chrome is one brave horse. I think our Jeep might shy away from carrying you! ;-D I can honestly say, your date has taken a total left turn... Fox hunting? Huh. But we think you look quite dapper in your hunting costume...
