Momma's New Headlight

Momma bought a headlight to wear on her noggin for night walking. Just when I thought it wasn't possible for her to look any more dorky. Sheesh.

We made a little demo movie in the back yard. I hope it works. We haven't been too keen to load movies directly to blogger lately. But I didn't think this was really worth a whole Relentlessly Huge Productions treatment.

Did you hear that stellar dialog?

"How 'bout that? How 'bout that? How 'bout that?" What a doofus!

She is all gushy about it, "Oh, Mango, what a quality of life improvement this is. It is so comfortable and now I can stride with purpose down the street when I walk Pea."

Hey lady, do I look like I care? I liked it better when you cut his night walkies short and spent more time with ME!

This is the headlight looks like. It's called a PETZL. Whatever.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!


monica said...

Neat... oh, and now you can rest safely while waiting for your dear momma to come in from the dark night without having been run over by a car and whatnot.. Pea should have one too...

BOL our Momster has one she uses in da yard so she does not step in any missed poop it looks even sillier when her is in her jammies..............hehehehehe


Bouncing Bertie said...

Can I be straight with you Mango? Based on that video, I think your Momma is seriously deluding herself as to the quality of the light beam that is shining from her head. Oh, well, I suppose it's better than having light shining from a certain other part of the body....
Toodle pip!

Our Mom has one of those - just wait until your Mom wears it out in the Summer time and gets in a swarm of gnats!! She'll get it off of her head really fast.

Never mind the miner's headlamp, I am too busy laughing at the dork hat. It has frayed ends at the front just like the ones Misery wears. hahahhahahaha!!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

Our Mommy is drooling over the head light thingy and thinks it is a pawsome idea. Humans are so WEIRD. Now if they invented something for them to wear that dispensed treats we wouldn't care how dorky our Mom looked wearing it.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

The world can rest easy, at night, now. Pea and mom are safe!

Gus said...

Hey! Our muzzer had started looking for one of those and you just gave her a great LEAD! We just figure that in the dark hardly anyone can see our dork. Live with it. They dish out the kibble.

BOL! Oh how much fun Mom would have taking night walkies with your Momma Mango! BOL! Oh just howlin thinkin about it! Mom with her spelunking head lamp and your Momma with her hi beam low beam one BOL! Oh I think all the neighbors would move ;)

Waggin at ya,

Sam said...

Mom would like one of those, but we think Monty would probably try to jump on her head getting to the light!


road-dog-tales said...

Wow, we're glad we weren't sipping a tasty beverage when we read this or it would be out our noses and on the keyboard, for sure! Peeps think the weirdest things are cool. But, you know, we have to play along if we wanna keep getting the treats!

Sam and Pippen said...

Dude, you look totally embarrassed about the whole situation! If our mom gets one of them thingies... we'll walk away as well.

HAH! Our Mom has one EXACTLY like that! She originally bought it so she could read in bed in the House With Wheels (it didn't really have the best in-bed reading lights) and has been seen to wear it when we go out at night and it is dark. *sigh* I'm very worried that our respective mothers might be dork-twins from different mothers. Oy. On the plus side of those silly lights, 1) it is dark when they wear them, so other people can't really see them, and 2) when the light is on, approaching people are blinded, and can't see the dorky human headlamps. So there is that. But seriously, Mom has That Exact Headlamp. Oy.

Our mom has toyed with getting something like that. Something about seeing what we're getting into in the dark. Please tell us your mom's doesn't work - OK?
Play bows and nothing to see here,

Frankie Furter said...

OMD... your momma looks like one of those Sigh Clops thingys.
BUTT I guess it is better than havin her Clopin on YOU or in your Poops. SIGH

My dad has a hat that has the lights build right in.. Butt I don't think he can find it. BaaaaWaaaaah

SissySees said...

I have something very similar from LL Bean but I can't find it. Hem.

Niamh said...

Let there be light! We can see just how thrilled you are with the whole thing. It is amazing what people get excited about.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

HoundDogMom said...

Well that is a pretty neat light. We really think it is really set off by the hat that she wears with it. Must love our humans. BOL Sniffs, The HoundDogs

Sue said...

Our Mom used one of those when the power was out for two weeks. She said it saved her sanity, but we liked it because we could always find her to beg for treats.

About the people you can shake your head. We laughed at the video. And you Mango, look very irritated.
Lots of love

We don't think we will be needing one of those lights,Mango. The Momster can't seem to stay on her feet in daylight, and so there isn't much chance of any night time walks here. As a matter of fact, there won't be any daytime ones either for a very long time -depressing, isn't it?

But it is a cool light for Momma.

Marjie said...

Ryan wore one of those on Halloween night. I believe he was dressed as a one-eyed monster. Perhaps your Momma is trying to extend Halloween to every night? But I'm glad she's staying safe while out there bouncing around with Pee Wee.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Uncle Mango, we wish you could control your Momma more. We don't want her giving our Mum any ideas like that. We live in a small town for gosh sake so if she starts walking around with a light on her head, folks will think she is sillier than ever. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

houndstooth said...

Well, at least now you can rest assured that your mama will not be coming in the house at night with anything unsavory on her shoe. You sure love to give her a hard time! Think of it this way, at least you don't have to be seen in public with her wearing that -- that honor goes to Dex!

It gets dark so early here, we could use one of those!!

Jasmine said...

Oh my. How embarassing. Why do Mommy's do things like that?

Do you think our Moms do these things on deliberately?

Have you got flashing night time collars yet??

Just Ramblin' said...

Bubba, I mean Mango... : ) I think Rocky has it figured out for the summer...with all of the nats it will surely be history. However, with it being darker sooner and much colder (a.k.a. no nats) in the winter, you may have a battle on your hands.

Ms. ~K said...

MangoMom is too cool....all the dog mushers were PETZL headlamps!!!
Mush on Mango!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Gosh, Mango - now that movie really WAS the "Blair Witch Project" !! (*wink*)

My human thinks that hat/headlamp thing is a great invention and shares your Momma's excitement too. Sigh. Humans.

Wild Dingo said...

Dude! Ok you're missin' the big, err, relentlessly huge picture. New headlight PLUS big, err, relentlessly huge scary doggie =more nite walkies ffor You! Tell the DOH to man up and take you at night!

Cinnamon said...

I like the idea of using a headlight on night walks. That way you can even waltz with your Momma in the dark :-) How romantic!!

Meryl said...

Dorky or not, those headlight things are very necessary!

Just wanted to drop by and say thanks for the nice thoughts about Porter--we appreciated all the warm, fuzziness for sure.

Hey Mango, what's up! I am just getting a chance to get caught up on some older blog posts. My mommy was laughing at that video. She really enjoyed the head flash light and how you dogs were looking at Momma like she was crazy. You know what. Mommy uses the riding lawn mower to pick up leaves in the yard. Her brother-in-law decided to help her and to be funny he put his hard hat on Mommy when she was driving the lawnmower. If she had a head flashlight -- that would have really been some sight for the neighbors.

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

Hey, now your momma needs one of those collars with the big flashing lights for Pee. Oh, and the light up leash and vest too.

Can't you just see them :) I think it's be cool.
