Show us Your Bird AND Educational Movie

Friends, are your humans all total stressed out nutbags getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday? My momma and master are on vacation today, but you wouldn't know it as they hustle about doing frenetic housework and last minute battles over foodables at the grocery store. All very stressy and disruptive for the Mango, so take a break and check out this brief, yet, one hopes, entertaining post.

First, for Sarge, here is a little wooden bird on a stick that my Master made about 87 years ago. I wish the turkeys in our neighborhood would serve themselves up this way. Nom.

Now, the Mango has been instructed not to bounce which is most confounding as I am feeling quite spirited. I am even forced to watch momma play tennis ball with idiot Pea from indoors so that I will not be tempted to participate. Then I am supposed to do "sedate" leash walkies around the yard. Like to drive me insane.

So to stimulate my mentals, I have been searching the internets for educational movies. I found a little treasure which I think you will enjoy. Watch it here or below.

Badass Honey Badger, you know it!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my pals in the US! I doubt we will have much internets time in the next couple of days.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Momma told me that we are embarking on a journey of wellness to get my sore bottom in shape and discover the source of my persistent big foot. First stop is this place on Monday. I was chagrined that I am going to the "small animal" clinic when they also have this facility available. Hopefully I will be directed to the appropriate sized vet upon arrival.

Very educational indeed.
A rival for our David Attenborough, without a doubt.

Oh and Mango, don't worry about the not being able to bounce around thing. I am quite happy to take up the slack.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Toodle pip!

Declan said...

Demand to be large Mango; you know it makes sense! Deccy x

Gus said...

Mango Man....we hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and Dexter Dude and Mom and Dad too. Maybe you could just ask for a definition of "large" animals for us. We think you should qualify.


Priscilla said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Mango!

I'm sure your momma has made the best wellness program for you. Take care.

Dude, Hopey ou have a really nice Thanksgiving and that after, when you go to the small animal hospital (he he) that they will be able to help you.

Thanks for the Honey Badger flick. It was good to know. I have seen a few of them when My vickie and I go hiking and she gets all. "Bert, stay.....stay here with me Bert"

I never knew why she wouldn't let me go play with the little critters. I DO NOW.


Sarge said...

Hey Mango!
Wow, that birdie made by your Dad is perfect! I love it. Thanks so much for pawticipating in Give Us The Bird and you're listed in the drawing now. Boy, I sure hope they have a relentlessly huge dogtor, with very tiny small animal tools. BOL. I'm sending you more healing vibes. That video is great! Now we all see why doxies are so fierce..they're badger hunters! Happy Tday to you and your whole pack.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Mister Master MADE that bird??? It is GRRRRREAT.

Now about that Badger... I am a Big Bad Ass BADGER HOUND... I just KNOW that I Could Take his ASS... and it would be SWEEEEET Success. I'm just sayin.
Of course I would Wait until AFTER my Supper and My Nap to do it.

Ms. ~K said...

Of course we are thankful for all our great furiends, but we're especially thankful we don't have those BADASS Honey Badgers around here!
Feel better soon Big Boy!
xoxo to you, Pea, and MM!

Good luck Monday, Mango! Don't worry - we go to the Small Animal part of the KSU Vet Med Teaching Hospital and the last time I was there, I saw a Mastiff. So even though you guys are a tad on the large size, you'll fit right in. Oh... and for the record, she was REALLY gorgeous and yes, I flirted with her a bit. Woo.

Anonymous said...

Don't worry Mango, Tufts has not seen you in the furs yet and when they do you will go directly to the LARGE Mango clinic post haste!

Happy Turkey Eatin Day!

Woos, Tessa

Sue said...

That is one pretty fierce animal. We'll stay away from honey badgers.

Good luck with your tests on Monday. A bunch of us are going to see our doctor that day for tests , too.

I'm smiling at the antics of the honey badger, and wondering if "Randall" narrated a movie about Mango how he'd describe the relentlesly huge one's day to day life!

Enjoy thanksgiving,

Murray loved that video!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

best wishes from us all here,
Clive, Murray and all the gang

Cinnamon said...

That video was really interesting and educational! I had never seen an animal like that!

Are you a small animal? No way! If you are a small animal, I must be a micro animal. Anyway, take care.

Yes, of course, I am still the top dog in our household!

Have a great holiday! Hang in there with the 'no list' so that you can heal quickly!

I hope you and Dexter have a great Thanksgiving and don't run into any badass honey badgers! I'm sure hoping you get to the right vet place and they can figure out what the problem is. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you get a taste of turkey!

We're sure that once they lay eyes on you, Mr. Mango, that they will redirect you to the BIG Animal clinic to be sure that you get the proper care. We are sad to hear that you have having to go to ANY kind of clinic, but hope they fix you right up once they get you there! The CCC
