Momma has Exceeded her Dork Quotient

I know, I know, you haven't been receiving as many of my insightful comments of late. Let's just say we are all very busy here at the Mango estate, but especially me, so sit tight and be patient with us, OK?

Once a quarter, Grandma and Grandpa come and take momma shopping. Since she hates shopping, this is a big deal. This time she declared success, but I'm not so sure...

Here is her new Elmer Fudd hat which she is now wearing everywhere. Even to the library and dog store and stuff. Oh the horror.

Check out her googly eyes. She looks like a labradoink eyeballing a tennis ball.

Meanwhile, I am confounded by PeeWee's persistence about using MY beds when he has an entire couch for his labraself. He doesn't even sleep in them. He just stares with that same look that momma gets in her Elmer Fudd hat. Then if I try to get in, he growls at me which is kind of freaky. Like what kind of head case would challenge the Mango?

I can usually resolve things by howling and moaning until momma can't stand it and tells the black devil to "git."

OK, gotta go, lot's do to. Busy, busy, busy.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Please keep K in your thoughts as she is having her surgery today to try and remove the evil bone cancer. And I also want to thank you for all your good wishes for my Auntie who is still in the ICU, but finally had her breathing tube removed last night and is awake but kind of dorked out.

Gus said...

Oh...we will try to get a picture of the muzzer in ONE of her truly dorky hats...but she is eyeing the Elmer Fudd hat with much longing, muttering about her ears!

Gee thanks Mango Mama

I is totally and completely BARKLESS!

We are still keeping our paws crossed for K and for your Auntie too!

tula said...

I thought that was a magical make your momma want to walkies woo.. but it might lose it's powers if she keeps dorking around in it! Somebody should shag it from her until walkies time!

just sayin.


Yay fur your auntie!

Hers REALLY bought dat hat? Like fur REALS? Hers could always takes da Puddles huntin' in it though...we can hunt wasklry wabbits.

We understand ya'll has lots goin' on so no worries.

We send our powerful vibes to your auntie.


Raymond and Busby said...

First of all, the photo of your Mom in that hat is hilarious and should somehow become a permanent part of your blog header or something.
Dexter is clearly crazy to be in your bed. And growling at you? Oh, the disrespect!

We are purring for your Aunt and for K. So sorry that we have been out of the loop & missed all this news. Also hope the Mango's seizuremonster is under control. XO

Erika and Blair,xoxo said...

OH my goodness Mango I think that your Momma might better sign on to that "what not to wear show". Or she could raid my Mom's closet, god know she has fancy things she could stand you get rid of. Maybe your Mom could borrow a fancy dress or two to walk you in!

Ms. ~K said...

Our Mom is soooo jealous of your Mom's hat...tells you a lot about our Mom, huh?

Sam and Pippen said...

Too bad it isn't Thanksgiving... cuz we are thankfuls that our mom doesn't like to wear hats!

Sam and Pippen


Mango I hear you're not the only one packing heat. I'm just saying it might persuade a dork to stay off the bedballs. Oh I see mango momma has come around to my fashions... next she needs a bell so you know if she moves off of the computer.

PS- glad your auntie is finally breathing on her own.

Niamh said...

Oh dear! I would not want to be seen with your momma while she was wearing that hat Mango. It is quite shocking. And as for the labradork, just sit on him. I have found this to be a good strategy with Ambrose and since you are relentlessly huge I am sure it would be very effective.

Your friend,

Frankie Furter said...

OMD OMD... I think YOUR mom and MY mom need to have BrainEctomies I am gonna start wearin a BAG on my head.. I suggest you do the same.. We can NOT be seen with these Wimmen.

Anonymous said...

I dunno. I thinks your momma's hat is Most Festive and...uh...lumberjack-like. They even wrote a song abouts lumberjacks one time.

So, see? Your momma is actually COOL!

Ina in Alaska said...

Mango Momma you in your cap would be stylin'(!) here in AK and for that matter anywhere else you would appear sporting your new chapeau! Warm and practical!

I think Pee Wee is just doing a year end bedbug check for The Mango.

Fingers crossed for K and your sister! And my little Toby is improving very well! I am pretty sure now that he did not injure a disc in his neck. I am sure all the good from the POTP played a huge roll! Thanks so much for your big heart! Happy New Year!!! This December has had a lot of sadness, glad there is some good news!

The Army of Four said...

Oh, Great Dane in the morning! You know what you've done, don't you, Mango? Or your mom. MY mom saw that hat and said, "Oh, that really looks like it would keep your ears nice and warm!" NO!!! Nooooooo! Please.... this could be really bad.
Play bows,

The Thuglets said...

OMD..we have our paws crossed our "she" here can't find a hat like your Mom's! Maybe she will only wear it to walk Dexter?
What is it about Mom's and headgear?

Corbin said...

Your momma can't be feeding the Mango with a frostbitten brain... so she needs the hat to keep it unfrostbitten! I'm sure it does the job.

Chester said...

Well, well, least now I'm not the only one walkin' around with a dufus-headed 2 legger. PLUS not only did Mom get herself one last year on a clearance rack (there's a reason it was on the clearance rack. Duh) but dad thought it was so "cool" that he went and got himself one too. Only thing pawsitive about them is that they are Brown and kinda blend in with the trees and such on our woods walks. I swear I heard the squirrels LOL'n as I ran as fast as I could ahead of my PUs.

Anywoof, I'm glad that your Aunt is improvin'. One paw at a time in the right direction. As for the Pea ownin' your bed, I gotta side with the labradorks on this one. Sorry - you're on your own Mango.

Woofs and owned slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Is this part of My Peep is a Flake?! BOL!!

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

That is quite a dorkified photo... which I have no right to talk about... I tie my hair under my neck to keep my ears warm while hiking... That's pretty dorky!

Sue said...

We think you should go shopping with your Mama so that your style sense can rub off on her. You could probably earn some extra income as a fashion consultant.

Agatha and Archie said...

HEYYYYYYYYYYYYYY its us Well just me really Archie just flew out of the house to buy a hat like that.We are glad about your Aunt Now she just has to get nice and strong again. We are wishing you and everyone a very very happy new year One with lots of treats and stuff and Archie said to throw in world peace love A+A

Marjie said...

So, you're saying Momma has a new Pea walking hat? Is that bad? She'll wear a more stylish one with you, I'm sure.

I second the suggestion that you sit on Pee Wee when he takes over your bed. That'll teach him.

My thoughts are with your Auntie, in hopes she'll escape from ICU into Regular CU soon. And I hope things turn out well for K, too.

Happy New Year, Mango and family!

Maggie Mae said...


Your momma is wearin' an Elmer Fudd hat! Is her huntin' fur rabbits? ;)

Woofs and Licks,

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Mango, tell your Mom that this new hat is the perfect item to be set aside for re-gifting:)

We are all thinking about K today and hoping things went well. Poor KB and K - what a week. Way too much sadness around these days - Mom says it has to end soon, just too much for her to handle.

Hope you can get that bed back soon. What is the matter with Dexter anyway - we love the couch!!!

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Oh, and we also wanted to add that we are happy to hear the news about your Auntie and hope she continues to progress more and gets better.

BODIE & GOO said...

Hey Mango, maybe you should go along shopping with Grandma and Grandpa and Momma to help with some Mango fashion. They shouldn't be let out alone unsupervised, you know what I mean...

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Oh Uncle Mango, your Momma is a sly one isn't she. As if you would fall for the old Elmer Fudd hat trick. She thinks if she looks totally dorky you won't want to go walking with her. HA! Not a chance. You make her walk EVEN MORE with you just to teach her a lesson.

As for PeeWee, he's probably just scared of your mum's hat so has to hide on your bed.

We have paws crossed for K and also for your aunty. Oh and by the way, please don't let your Momma wear that hat to the hospital. Your aunty will think she is hallucinating.

Seriously though, we wish her all the best. Take care big fella and we wish everyone in your family a peaceful, healthy and contented New Year. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory (and Carol)

Dory and the Mama said...

Mama love your Mama's new hat! We think we may pretend not to know her if she wore it while on our walkies....

OH...Katie thinks PeeWee is HAWT!!

Maggie and Mitch said...

Our mom loves your mom's hat! She said that keepin' your ears warm in the winter is a smart thing!
We continue to send lots of healing vibes your Auntie's way.

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Koobuss said...

I like it! It's colorful and stylish and I'm sure no one else has one like it. Your mom won't ever have to worry about that. Hehehe...

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Ah nuts. I've been busier than a lone beaver in a big forest too and didn't hear about your Auntie till now. So glad she's out of ICU and doing good! :)

Now about that Elmer Fudd hat. Where'd you find it? Mom wants one too! ;) Do not I repeat Do not tell her where you found it.

What's up with Dexter taking over Mango's bed and growling? at him? Has he lost his mind?!!! Yikes!

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! :D

Waggin at ya,

The Boston Lady said...

Why Mango, your momma is one hot chick! It takes a special woman to be able to rock a hat like that and she does it! Ann TBL

Bouncing Bertie said...

Oh no! Gail is saying that looks like a great hat and she's going to check up and see if Elmer Fudd (for real??) is available in the UK....
Happy New Year!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Wishing you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR
May your New Year 2012 be blessed with peace, love and happiness. Sending our heartfelt wishes with joy that never ends.

PS: Your mom must love that hat a lot, she looks serious, oh no I dare not to mess with her.

Happy New Year Mango! I actually like your mamma's new hat. It looks really warm :-)

Dennis the Vizsla said...

hello mango its dennis the vizsla dog hay we ar sending lots of tail wags yore aunties way!!! ok bye

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

Ahhh, poor Mango has to rest on the bare floor. I can relate sometimes I get pushed off MY couch. Then I go to the humans big bed :) I have it all to myself. Maybe you should just take Pee Wee's couch and sprawl all out on there and see if he notices.


Moose Dog said...

Oh no, maybe tell her it is not wabbit season and she will take it off! My Momma is always wearing dorky things so I sympathize. In fact she thinks that hat looks pretty toasty if it were cold enough here!

Lexi and Jasper the Danes said...

Now now Mango we thing you Momma look very fashionable in her Elma Fudd Hat :p *Hee Hee*

Licks and lots of slobber,
Lexi and Jasper the Danes
