The Mango is on the DL!



OW OW OW! OWIE! OW!

Sure. Last night I was all bouncing and having a great time with momma and Pea when all of a sudden my hinterlands go a flying off in a weird direction and down I crash. I admit, I cried like a girl for sure. You would have too!

Then this morning I like totally could not get my bottom to work right and it kept making angry feelings into my brains like total OWIE!

Look at me all trying to get up (oops, excuse my lipstick).







I already had an appointment with vet lady to photocopy my bigfoot, but when she saw how sore I was she said, "Oh Mango, you will need to go to a place with a bigger photocopy machine."

So home we came and I took some extra of those NSAIDs and now I am all about just kind of hanging in the sun.




My appointment is two whole days away so for now momma is helping me get up and down as much as possible.





Momma made a little movie of me all hobbling and stumbling. Before you watch it, I need to tell you something. Mastiffs cannot walk on three legs. Nope. Not gonna happen. Out of the question. Think my little pony, OK?

I'm kind of OK on the flat, but any bumps and away goes my bottom. Like it's made of jello.






You know what is the worst? I didn't get to ROTE because you know who didn't want to keep lifting my bottom into the mastiff mobile and there was totally another mastiff at the doggie store! Like that will ever happen again. Sheesh.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. From Mango Momma
Mango took quit a tumble. As near as the vet can tell he has soft tissue damage. He is very resistant to being aided and when I try to help him up he sits in to me, but we manage. I've had to aid him with his potty because he cannot "assume the position" and this has been, well, uncomfortable for both of us. I need to balance keeping him moving a little with letting him rest. It does seem to work itself out a bit when he walks, but he stumbles on any little pitch in the lawn. This isn't the first time he has twisted his hind end and hopefully he will feel better in a couple of days. If not, we have an appointment on Monday to go to the special vet with the relentlessly huge x-ray machine.

Poor Mango. Morgan says she knows just how you're feeling. She needs help on stairs though it's getting better. Hope the vet lady has something that makes you all better soon.

Oh Mango Man, we hopes it is nothing serious. You do seem to be in a predicament. How unfair you didn't get to go to ROTE when there was another Mastiff there.

Mango Dude, How can I make fun of your button nose when your hurtin.

IS this your way of gettin one up on me.

Well, it worked. Now I am worried about you my friend.

Take it easy, lean on your human and don't be shy about it and GET BETTER SOON.

From your Big nosed friend
Bert

Sasha said...

Oh, poor Mango, injuries in the bottomnal area are not to be sneezed at!

I've just recovered from the owies where I had my bum pimples removed, but they were little, and your bottom is so much larger than me (possibly even larger than two of me), it must be very sore!

If it doesn't go away in a reasonable time, ask your human to find you a doggy acupuncturist or Bowen therapist, they are very good.

Puppy kisses
Sasha

Hi Uncle Mango, please, please, please get better soon. We are sending puppy kisses and slobber from Rory. You know how much hanging slobber makes people move fast, we thought it might work on you too.

Mango Momma hugs to you too. Good luck with the visit to the Vets and the X Ray.

We will be thinking of you Uncle Wobbly Mango. No worries (especially for you and Momma) and extra love, Stella and Rory

The Boston Lady said...

Oh Mango, it's just not the same when you are hurting. It's tough to see you moving like that and I know it must be really hard on your Momma. Can't the Pea help out in some way - like pull you in your own chariot, just as you deserve? Feel better big man. Ann TBL

Frankie Furter said...

Marjie said...

Poor baby! Give him a relentlessly huge hug from someone who loves mastiffs and him hugely.

The Life of Riley said...

Hey mango,

The phrase "the bigger you are the harder you fall" comes to mind, so with your size your fall must have really hurt!

I hope you are feeling better and back to your usual self soon.

Woof,
Riley

Stacey said...

Oh no! Poor Puppy! I hope everything goes OK at the vet and he's back to himself soon! You have my best wishes!

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

Mango, we would totally cry like girls, too. Oh. Wait. We ARE girls. But we'd still totally cry like girls if our body parts went in completely unexpected and undesired directions! Get better soon, RH! We doubt the DOH is up for much, ah, assisting if you know what we mean! I mean, she's this little teeny person, and when you assume the position, well, there's a lot of you to manage! Feel better soon, and enjoy your sun! (We're enjoying our new snow, so everyone is happy, right?)

Get better soon Mango. We are sending healing collie vibes your way.

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Mango, we are so very sorry to hear about your most recent injury! We will be keeping our paws crossed for your speedy recovery. Does Mango Momma have one of those slings that go under your tummy in front of your lipstick, with handles on both sides, so Mango Momma can help hoist you and steady your gait? Mama used one of those for one of her senior Danes and it really helped. Until you're well enough for some PT to strengthen your posterior, perhaps the acupuncture and/or massage suggested by Sasha would help. And drugs. Don't forget to ask for some Mango-strength pain killers!

Bolo said...

Stop getting hurt Mango! Get well though and don't fall on your Momma when she's helping you.

Poor Mango Man! Feel better big guy!!!

Tank said...

That's just pitiful. The cheerful, upbeat music on the video confused me though. Seems like a darker or at least melancholy selection would have been more appropriate considering your sad expression and wobbly legs:(

feel better

FiveSibesMom said...

Oh I am so sorry to hear about your owie bottom, Mango. I am working on publishing an article about laser therapy that I am having conducted on Gibson. Maybe when you see your vet, you can ask about it. It helps to promote healing and sounds like your injury would be a good candidate. Let me know and we are thinking of you! I'll be posting more on the laser therapy soon. Get better soon!!!

Ina in Alaska said...

We are so sorry Mango (& Momma) hope you feel better soon! That looks ouchie x 1 million!!

Priscilla said...

Ouch! that hurts!!!

Hope some hot/cold healing methods do the wonder. Some doggy massage might help as it can give your muscle more strengths. We did those with Mika when his leg was weak.

Get well soon, Mango Man!!!

We are sending you lots of AireZen, Mango. We hope you feel better soon. We feel so badly for you.

Oh Mango, It's painful just watching this video, seeing you hobbling around! The largest fall the hardest!
As mush as you hate it, we're sending lots of LabraLicks and Get Well Wishes!

PS...Buddy started limping on his "good leg" yesterday after a romp in the woods...so he's now laying low too Mango! :(
Sending hugs to MangoMom!

Tucker said...

Mango that looks like it hurts. I did the banana splits at the dog park one day when I was younger and had similar leg ouchies. The vet says those soft tissue damages take a long time to heal. I hope you gets better soon.

woof - Tucker

Breaking my heart Mango,... breaking my heart. Feel better soon, real soon. : )

The Heartbeats said...

Dude I hope you feel better soon cause we need to go trollin' for the ladies.

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

reminds of a Saige. she was just never well and i was constantly holding my breath around her. she was so big--but so suseptible and sensitive to everything. Mango is certainly a trouper.

excuse bad spelling. reading too many bad spelling spam letters

ocmist said...

So this is what happened... We are backtracking and wondered what was going on, but are so glad that you are getting better.

Grammy is so glad that Grandma OC isn't really big, so they don't have to hold her up and Uncle Robert was able to make her a wheelchair. Her hind end doesn't work at all now, and it is even hard for her to sit up without support, but she still smiles and follows Grammy with her eyes wherever she goes. She isn't in pain, as the meds help with that.

Mango you gotta get better and stay better. Hope you are moving about good as new very soon.

Moose said...

Oh noes!!! I heard about this on FB but don't think I understood how bad it was. I also didn't think about not even being able to three leg. I know you are a bit better now because I am so far behind on blogland but yikes. stay out of trouble from now on buddy!

Poor Mango!!! Keeping my fingers crossed and hurrying on to read more . . .
