Just Call Me Bigfoot

Sure, go ahead, call me Bigfoot. That's what everybody around here is calling me and honestly I think it is very immature to make fun of one's infirmities.

Especially since we all know that my foot is hardly the biggest thing on the internets.

But I digress...

The Mango is feeling much improved. Thanks in no small part to all your good wishes (and, of course, the anti bio ticks and swelling reduction medicines). I am perky and eager to get on with life. Sure, I walk kind of funny and still sit out tennis ball action, but I am otherwise fit and vigorous.

Momma, on the other hand, with all her hysterical blue italicized words, could use a tranquilizer dart. If she sticks that thermometer in my ear one more time or wraps that tape measure around my large even for myself foot I think she has some trouble coming. You know it.

I'm a bit worn out from all the attention, as you can imagine.

Oh, and my pee pee tests came back fine. They are spending some more time with my poo. It must be fascinating material. As for whatever vet lady pulled out of my tail bump, we'll have to wait some more for that one too.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Momma hit the mark all as read button when I was otherwise occupied. Rats.

oh boy... is it getting smaller or bigger? it sure looks bigger than yesterday.

I think you could get someone to give your mom a tranquilizer dart.. hehehehe i am sure the v-e-t could help you out there in that department.

get well soon ya Mango!

Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie said...

Mango just take it easy and make sure you are always sitting down when your Momma approaches with the dreaded thermometer. She may just give up then! hee hee.

Get better soon.

Mango, great to hear you're all perky. Although I have to say that is not the adjective I would use to describe the way you look in that last photo....
Toodle pip!

I really couldn't see how swollen your foot was in the other photo the other day when you had wet paws. I mean the tape measure did help -- but I can really tell from this photo how swollen your foot really is. That must really hurt? Did you try to get an extra bone or some hot dog num nums out of the deal?

Frankie Furter said...

Keep us posted..

ummm.. Lacie Teacakes is gonna.. well, I shiver to think what she will be planning after THAT pic.

Gus said...

Mango Man....

If your Mama needs some smoothies, I can send Teka. Miss Lacie taught her to make a few of them while we were playing pokers a while back.

But I'm not sure she is any quieter than Lacie, or any less trouble. I thinks her butt is a bit smaller.

Srsly...we are so glad to hear you are doing better that we are gonna let the Dad sleep in an extra 15 minutes while we types this.

Minna Krebs said...

HOORAY!! This is a good start to my day, hearing the Mango Man is doing betters.

.......I hope you charged the Vet some $$ ...to spend all this time and enjoyment, looking at your poops!

Corbin said...

Glad you're feeling better, dude... No fun with the sickies. But enjoy all the extra attention! Hope you're getting delish noms.

Mango, hang in there, Momma just loves you so much she has to tend to your every need with special care. Hope the foot improves. Maybe all the pee and poop stuff is a reaction to the seizure meds. Paws crossed for good results on your other tests.

Reilly / Bree said...

DianeTaylor said...

Hey Mango - Indy Bones here - sorry I haven't been to your blog in awhile, my human pretends to be busy with her work but I know otherwise. Seriously - how much work can she have? She just types all day long on a keyboard?!?! I'm sorry about your foot and your sickies - but I'm glad you are getting better. My human Diane screams like CRAZY when she sees a bee - so undignified. I just run around chasing it - much more fun. I hoipe your momma's new job isn't getting in the way of quality Mango/Dexter time - I mean really, who is more important here?

Sending you feel better vibes from Merryland :):)

Your friend,

Indy Bones

Make the most of it big guy, as soon as the foot is back to normal size, she's going to have you running and dancing and all that exercise stuff. This is your chance to get waited on.

Glad to hear you're on the mend Mango Man!!

Marjie said...

Glad you're doing better, dude. I hate to think of your momma hoisting you around by the sports bra.

Dear Mango

We are glad to hear you are feeling better, even if you foot is still ginormous!

Yay! I'm super glad you're getting betters, Mango! I guess getting all the Momma attention all the time can get a little tiring after a while, huh? It's prolly time to quit tying that turn-a-kit around your elbow at night while she's not looking.

Wiggles & Wags,

Maggie and Mitch said...

We don't think your swollen foot is any laughing matter, Mango! We hope you get better soon!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

ACK!! Miss a couple of days and the sky falls in! Gosh, Mango, we are so sorry for your elephantitis affliction. Hope it goes away soon. Jed's had a sore paw with a bad infection since last Spring, so he is extra full of sympathy. And Abby, who has also been neglected, sends empathetic vibes to the neglected Pea. Maybe you were attacked by an insect during your Great Escape walkabout? Or a snake? Ugh!

Your DWTDS trophy is finally in the mail. Hope it cheers you a little bit.

Paws crossed for your speedy recovery,

Jed & Abby

Oh! Mazel tov on the foster house!

I hope that you're feeling grand again in no time!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Somehow I KNEW 'she' would make an appearance on your blog -

At least as much as khould fit -

PeeEssWoo: Mom just realised The Golden Khampers and I didn't press THAT button even though we promised we would - SO she's going to take matters into her DOH paws NOW!

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

Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyy...so I just popped in here to check on you Mango, and I'm met with that INSULT....and that most attractive picture of my dainty little behind that you featured. Would you perhaps like a video of me prancing so it can be an action shot? I see Khyra has been khommenting, also...

Oh...I checked the accuracy of your ear thermometer and noted it was hopelessly off. So I replaced it free of charge. With a rectal probe.

You're most welcome,


Pee ess...

And Teka's bum is far far larger than mine!

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

Your Mom does kinda go crazy with the blue italics, doesn't she? Heehee. I think it just means she's worried about you. But we're glad you're on the mend, even if you have a larger than usual even for you foot. It gives you character! Take care, big guy!

Hey mango, let me know when your episode of Finding Big Foot is on the Animal Planet? don't want to miss it!



Again...thanks for the updates. We are thinking of you and glad that your sense of humour prevails.

achieve1dream said...

I'm glad you're feeling better Mango! I'll keep my fingers crossed that the rest of your tests come back normal.

The Boston Lady said...

The fact that momma's "hysterical blue italics" have no shown up this post mean Mango is doing well. I think they have thrown away your poop or are in the act of freeze-drying it for a poop museum as yours is certainly one of a kind. Hope that foot goes down. Ann TBL

Daisy Dog said...

Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better!!

Holly and Khady said...

Poor Mango! I sure hope your footy foot starts to feel better very very soon!!


violett said...

Hi Mango Bigfoot
I am pleased to read that you're fit again. If you re kidding, You must feel yourself comfortable

violett said...

I've seen over the last 2 weeks privately very sad. Today I only looked up posts and am scared that have gone through mango and mango mama.
I hope it will be okay!
In love
Mishka Mom

Kasha said...

Oh Mango Dude, I have been running a bit behind on reading the blogs, but I was so glad to see you are feeling better.

You are so popular that you may not even get to my get well wish but here it is anyway.



Au and Target said...

Glad you're feeling better Mango and we hope your mummy gets a big tranquiliser - maybe in the form of a large rum and coke with an umbrella and a cherry??? If she does, remember to hit her up for extra treats when she's squiffy :-)

Mango Momma would you please comment on my blog what type of raw bones you occasionally give to your boys? I would like to try it with my pack. Thanks!
