POTP for Bert and I Have Issues with Blueberries


Please visit my friend and MM 2012 BIS Judge, Bert and send him good thoughts.
He seems to have swallowed a tennis ball and is having emergency surgery.
Good luck, buddy. The Mango is pulling for you.
His blog is here.





OK, now, first thing you do is watch a little movie either here or below.




Did you watch it? Now you might think from that movie that The Mango does not like blueberries.

That could hardly be further from the truth, wherein which, my large and pendulous jowls make it very difficult to keep those slippery little fruits in my jaws of doom.

So while the DOH is busy making fun of me and acting all like I don't want the thing the truth was I wanted it really bad and I was so mad when she picked it up and fed it to that pointy snootered labradoink.

Look at him. Looks like some stupid baby bird all head thrown back and jaws agaping. EEP, EEP, EEP!





I was finally able to convince the labraloving witch that I, too, would like to partake if she could help me to situate it just so, so as not to lose it in my jowls.










Hmmm, under the tongue. Like fruit nitroglycerin, right? YUMMERS!






Speaking of blueberries and idiot humans, I went to take a gander at the Master's "blueberry patch" the other day.







Um, hello? Just fall off the apple cart or something? Seriously? Master, buddy, those are STICKS! You planted STICKS! Fool!

Guess I better keep my Stop and Shop card handy if I want any blueberries this summer.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Full marks for perseverence with that slippery little sucker. I have the same problem with blueberries. They're much easier to consume when they're served in a muffin. :D

Labradoinks eat anything-- except lettuce. i know, see if he'll eat a blueberry wrapped in lettuce! wocka wocka!

woo might put a little peanut butter on yours to make it stick!

How sad.

I can't believe that the tiny little blueberry dared to dance in your mouth! Glad you'd found a way at last.

jen said...

Blueberries are tricky little things! Sherman has the same problems with them!

houndstooth said...

BOL! Thank you for the morning giggle, Mango! Maybe you should have her make you a blueberry smoothie instead. Those sticks don't look very promising...

P.S. We haven't seen any news about Bert since last night. Hope he's recovering well!

Aw Mango, that even happens to me sometimes, those tiny blueberries are hard to get a grip on!
I hope those sticks in your garden grow into something... maybe they are magic!

sticks? OMG, Mango, I don't know how you live with those bi-peds. it's amazing you haven't starved yet.

Minna Krebs said...

That Blueberry patch looks just like Unkle Tommy's tomato patch did last summer. I hate to break it to you, butt we never did eat any tomatoes from that pitiful thing ......

And I am appalled at how her just popped that Blueberry over to Dexter, with no apparent concern for da Mango. Sigh

Amber DaWeenie said...

HeHeHe....dey was jus' poppin right outta your mouth, big guy! Tell da Momma you could handle dem a lot better if dey was baked in a muffin! Jus sayin!

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

That blueberry patch looks a bit, erm, anemic. But maybe that's because it's February... Of course, if OUR Mom attempted to grow blueberries, we'd have sticks like that in July... On a different note, maybe blueberries are just a wee bit too small for the RH - you either need mutant blueberries or cantaloupe or something. Just saying...

Sarge said...

Hey Mango!
Wow, that's BOL funny! I love how you look at Pea like, how'd you do that?!? Slippery little suckers anyway. I agree about the muffins, but PIE would be delish too. Darn jowls anyway.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

bbes tribe said...

Those little blueberries are slippers suckers aren't they? They just roll around in the mouth and come out looking just the same... not fair. Maybe M can make some dog treats and include the berries in them ....

Phantom says you and Dexter can gladly have his blueberries - he hates them. Now the rest of us love them, and since Dad has them every morning with breakfast, we each get 6 blueberries too.

Bouncing Bertie said...

Oh gosh I have never tried blueberries, but I so want to now.

Mango, you are pretty lucky you know, to have a Mango Momma who is prepared to feed big grown up you like a BABY.

Toodle pip!
Bertie.

You know what's really fun to do with blueberries? And maybe this will help you -- take them over to a light-colored carpet and eat them there. Take a little crunch, then put it on the carpet to admire it! Then eat it after the carpet blots out some of the slippery juice. That's what I do. Or did. Oddly, I don't get blueberries any more. Hmm.
Luv,
Dave

Bassetmomma said...

That sucks when you get blueberries stuck in your jowl! Labradoink would probably get stuck in your jowel too! just sayin'.

Sue said...

We think scientists should come up with a giant, Mango sized blueberry. Mom gives them to us every day because the doctor says they're good for our mentals. We don't know about that, but they do taste good.

Cinnamon said...

Yeah those blueberries look too small for your mouth (^^)

The Life of Riley said...

That looks like one serious "Mango-proof fence" around those sticks!

Mitch and angel Maggie said...

Maybe if your dad over-fertilizes, you'll have huge blueberries - just the perfect size for the Mango's mouth!

Love ya lots,
Mitch

Marjie said...

Thor and his boy Jeffrey planted blueberry sticks. They got 3 blueberries that year. They never got any again. Keep that card handy, Mango!

chicamom85 said...

Mango, I think if she put them in some pancakes they would be much more suitable for your large jowls and also more satisfying. I mean, honestly trying to put that little tiny berry in your massive jowls! As if???

p.s. Mommy says that in the picture on your header that it looks like you are trying to blink Dexter away like a Genie(giggles)

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

We like the muffins or pancakes ideas as blueberry delivery systems. Or waffles. Or even bread, with a nice topping of peanutty butter. Hmmm.. we're off to check out the kitchen. Sometimes mama drops stuffs on the floor and we like to be on the spot to clean the spot :)

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

I think one should Murder the Blueberries prior to trying to devour them. Butt, I could be wrong.

I have my paws crossed fur Bert!!

scotsmad said...

We've never had blueberries, but as we eat almost anything, we'd probably eat them, too.

We laughed at your garden of sticks!!!

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella &Roxy

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

Firstlish, give ME the blueberries, Mango...I'll whip up a smoothie...

Secondly, it seems that the full set of dentures that Dexter ordered have come in...I bet it's so much easier than him having to gum his food.

XXOO

Too funny, Mango! Of course a dog named Mango would live blueberries! You should ask the DOH to make you blueberry smoothies! That eliminates the jowls problems and gives you the possibility of some amazingly colored drool!

MAXMOM IN SOUTH AFRICA said...

My thanks too for the morning giggle - both from your funny post and the commentators. Yes, I'd also pay a fortune to see blue Mango froth, lol!
I absolutely LOVE blueberries, but they don't grow here and we have to pay a fortune for the tinned types. I'd watch that 'stick' miracle garden. Mark my words...They'll soon they'll sprout up and make Mango eat his words...uh...Blueberries.
Sending lotsaluv and thanks for your comments on my blog.

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

You make me giggle. I think you was just playing with your food.

I might try a blueberry it looks way less slimy than a banana. Mom tries to feed me bananas and I flick them back at her. Unless they are dehydrated...Mmmm nice a crunchy. Oooh and with peanut butter. You gotta try it.

Oh Mango, you cheer me up. Now that I am home and not stuck in that little cage at the vets, it is nice to be able to catch up on my buddies.

I loved the video of you and the bludeberry. I need lots of cheery stuff.

thanks

Poor Poor Mango man! Glad your smart momma figured out that under the tongue trick!

The Thuglets said...

Do you think the Master has heard about Jack and the beanstalk and that's why he planted sticks? We like blueberries. Yep Mango we reckon you could do some serious blueberry drools...can't wait to see em!
Have a great weekend

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Uncle Mango, we haven't tried blueberries but they sure look slippery. We agree though that if they are cooked in muffins you should have no worries eating them that way. Labradudes always manage to eat everything, greedy blighters.
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Wyatt said...

Mango-
You have to get yer mom to put the Blueberries into pancakes...so much easier to eat that way.

BOL! Poor you Mango, us big jowled guys do have trouble with smaller objects! Glad you managed to eat them in the end and they didn't all go to dexter!

Koobuss said...

That was a captivating video, Mango. I was on the edge of my seat.

What's a blueberry? I never had one. You say they come in patches? Hmmmm... That's interesting.

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

That's sad to know. :'( Dogs like that almost eat anything. --- Hmmm, Blueberries are more delicious if served as muffins. :D
