WTF Wednesday - Our New Neighbor

First of all, can you believe momma actually made me take down the header of my large and handsome self all rolling and roaching in the grass and replace it with a dorky photo of me sitting there next to Pea? COME ON!

It isn't even a good photo. I have NO FACE! WTF? And Pea looks like a black blob (aw who cares how he looks anyway). But what about ME and my fans? They want to see myself. Sheesh!

But I digress...

So there I was enjoying a nice sun bake when stupid Pea wakes up and goes into his "intruder alert" routine. All barking and yelling and trying to puff up his little body. As if!

And I'm like "Shut up, labradoink! Can't you see I'm taking a meditation?"


Yuh, so it's not like I'm going to get any more sleep, might as well get up and see what the little pest is on about.

I peer over the fence and you know what I saw at the end of the driveway?

WTF? Seriously? There is totally a HORSE in our driveway! Are you seeing this?

And Momma was out there too! Holy crap! That horse was gonna kill her for sure. So now I'm yelling "Momma! Watch out! That horse will kill you!"

It's even wearing a horsie mental leader. I bet it just came right from ruffian school.

But she was all shouting at me to simmer down because it is just our new neighbor. Huh?

Now, I have seem some rather interesting poop on my walkies, but I always assumed that it fell off one of the landscaper trucks I see zooming up and down the street all the time. Nope. Apparently we have official poop making horses right down the street!

You know what else? Momma said this horse is just a baby.

What what what? Look at the size of those feet! That's a baby?

Nine months old? As if!

So that's our new neighbor. Sheesh! Just when I thought it was safe to go walkies again now I have to watch out for gigantic mutant mastiff eating "baby" horses.

Give me strength!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

scotsmad said...

Very strange neighbour!

XXXOOODaisy, Bella & Roxy

Don't walk behind it--for various reasons.

Autumn and Jasmine the Maltese said...

Dear friend,

Sorry for not dropping in awhile :) I've been busy working (helping mom) thus kind of forgot to update my blog.

I might not be able to post as often as before so please head over to my newest post and leave a comment so I could add you on mom's new site. With this we could still keep in contact and it'll easier for me to drop by often to your page :)

Hi Mango

We have giant miniature Schnauzer-eating horses near where I live. Sometimes they go down the road past my dog park. I always go and chase them off, and I'm very fierce, so they always leave in the end.

I am Sasha, chaser-away of horses!

Mitch and angel Maggie said...

This is wonderful, Mango. Finally, a new friend for you that's close to your size!

Love ya lots,

Declan said...

That looks like a very bad and scary horse Mango...hmmm... Deccy x

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock said...

Oh Poor Mango... you clearly have never seen what a grown-up Percheron's feet look like. Cardiac arrest would follow, for sure!

Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Woof! First you blog header is good ... Dexter looks good n you too. WOW! that's a Horse. COOL! I bet you guys can walk at the same pace. Happy Wednesday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

Hey Mango - maybe when you 'grow up' (we know you are still a pup at heart) you will look like the 'baby'.

Priscilla said...

I thought cats were already bad enough and now you have that big giant baby which can still grow into enormous size, that's horrible!!!

Stay strong and be brave!

Berts Blog said...

It is rough when you think you are the biggest dude on the block and some freak of nature moves in down the street that is twice your size and just as lovable. Kinda puts that button nose of yours in perspective.

(I am having a little golden laugh right now)

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

Mango, I bet the horse is still smaller than you are -- stop worrying! Can't wait to see the showdown on street of the the Mango pie droppings vs. the Pony pies. I bet you will win Mango!

Casey said...

WOW!! Now that's an exciting neighbor! How can you not be excited over that?!

Shawn said...

OMD...where do you live that a HORSE can be your NEIGHbor? I would be very scared butt you are braver, and mucho bigger, than me!
I see your point on the header. When I first looked at it, I thought it was magnificent! On second look, you are in the shadow and I can't see your face. Having barked that, I vote to keep it up for a might grow on you.


SissySees said...

Grandest Mango Sir -

Gretchen Greer here. I am SO GLAD someone else out there gets that these equine things are TROUBLE. Mama and Sis get all squee-ey when they see our neighbor horses/ponys/lions/tigers/bears on the road. Me?! I lock it down and begin shouting warnings.

No one listens. These beasts smell funny, look even weirder, and I still insist if two of 'em must be tied to a super-sized wagon-thingee, weighted down by up to three humans, there's a SERIOUS problem, especially when the beasts are STILL dragging the wagon with ease!

Did I mention no one listens? In fact, I get in trouble for screaming my "fool head off". That's a quote. Hrmph.

achieve1dream said...

Awww she is so cute!! So cool you finally got to meet your neighbors (four and two legged). I walked Chrome down the street like that when he was that age too. Great way to get them used to traffic and crazy mental barking dogs (just kidding lol!!) so when you start trail riding they have already been there done that. :) She's adorable.

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

You boys just GOTTA get some of that POOP. It is the most Superb Snack EVER.

3 doxies said...

Mango, you needs to puts dis all in least your neighbor ain't sellin crack. I'll gladly trade neighbors.

I bets his poop is biggers than me.


Jake of Florida said...

Interesting neighbor. Perhaps, as Patches just suggested, said intruder is just a VERY BIG DOG. No???

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

harrispen said...

Oh Mango that baby horse is adorable. I love her long feathered hooves. Maybe if you met nose to nose you might like her.


Sammie and Avalon said...

Me, Avalon here. You should see Sammie go all loudmouth when she even hears Dad's car drive up - gawsshhamighty. Scares the poop outta me - oh... that's what I was gonna say. You ever TRIED those horsie pie lil apples they leave behind? Oh heavenly days - me and Sammie eat 'em up like candy. Bet baby horsie poops are like really... "poopie tenders."
Sammie and Avalon
PS - WE like your picture up top!

Omg mango! Run!!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We sure hope that new neighbor's humans have to carry AND use poop bags:)

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Amber DaWeenie said... be da time fur da newest great invention of all time.......Horsey Poop Bags!!! Disposal bags should be hung on every mail box!

Sam and Pippen said...

Dude! That horse is almost as big as you!

One good thing about horses is that the poopies are nice to roll in...

Sam and Pippen

The Heartbeats said...

Horse poop is fun to roll in...


rottrover said...

That is one big freakin' dog, dude. Good thing the doink woke you from your meditations. No telling what might have happened!!!

Sarge said...

Hey Mango!
Wow, that's one weird neighbor fur sure. I have some deer that are about that size and I give them my big barks. Say, maybe you could teach Dex to ride it and sell tickets to peeps to watch! Could be some good poop and some green papers involved.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Sarge said...

That's it!!!!! I'm firing my secretary RIGHT NOW! I've told her 87 times to be sure and mention MM to you. Does she remember? Nooooooo. So, I'll do it myself:
Congrats on a super fun and successful Mango Minster this year! Thanks for all the hard work you put into making such a pawesome event for all of Blogville. Great job and I loved every minute of it!
There. That's better.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Erika, Blair and crew said...

Wow Mom is almost out of her seat. She has a very big problem with horses (she LOVES them). In fact she had 5 before she got me. None now but boy does she wish that she could smoochy his nose!

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

You're new neighbor is cute... what's her name??? Don't worry Mango; I'm sure you momma is safe!!

The Army of Four said...

Woo. Well, sure, she's kinda cute, but I wonder how much room she takes up in the bed?!? Seriously!

brooke said...

CUTE!!! Just think of it this way, now you can look out for horseapples on your walks!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Uncle Mango, you lucky dog. Horse poo right next door. If you get lucky you could roll in it. Mmmmm, that's the best. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Katie Marie said...

Oh my HORSE!! He is very cute... but not quite the NEIGHbor you were expecting??

Katie Marie said...

We live in MASS, too! Check out our blog

Marjie said...

I have a friend with a small horse. She didn't eat mastiffs, but she always looked in the car trunk to see if there were any noms safely stored inside. Maybe your neighbor baby horse just wants to inspect the MastiffMobile for foodables?

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

Damn, dude! I bet you might run into that mutant horsie thingy at your vet (well, you probably go to the mutant baby horse vet...). I bet your Dad is totally thrilled at the prospect of locally-sourced free fertilizer! Heehee!

*kissey face*

chicamom85 said...

Mango, I am most frightened of these beasts, I have only encountered one in my experience and I will never forget it. Be careful and guard your estate. You don't want to be blamed for what might come out of that thing.

Loveys Sasha

p.s. perhaps it is a Labrador eating "baby" horse

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

Holy crappers, Mango...that dog is hooge...and what's with his paws...they look like HOOVES....

Peewee looks quite small in the header photo. Photoshopped him again, huh...that image size bar is fabulous.

Lacie remains in Switzerland with Loki, but seems upset with the lack of breakfast/service etc.

Mumsie says it fabbers making new friends via the Minster...we're hoping Lacie doesn't wear out her sweet welcome.

Good luck with the beast in the driveway...I suggest you carry carrots at all times...


KB said...

Oh Mango, you make me laugh and laugh. We have horse neighbors too. My Duo would tell you that the best part is eating their nuggets. As far as I can tell, our horses leave gourmet nuggets on the trails.

Is that horse bigger than you? I'd love to see a photo of you together (RH and the horse).

Koobuss said...

Oh wow! Mango! How exciting!! A baby horse in your very own neighborhood. Sounds like an interesting place.

I don't think I've ever seen a horse in person before. They look big.

You are so lucky, Mango.

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

pee ess Could your mom please send my mom her email address. : )

Now we have seen everything! May be its a Great Dane. Hope mom sanitized herself

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

NOT funny, Benny & Lily! Chrome earned his honorary Dane status. But being a Dane is an honor not accorded to most horses.

Mango, relax: horses are herbivores. As long as you guys stay out of hoof-striking range, you'll be fine. So is she an only horse, or are there other horses on her estate? Abby admits to a hankering to try some of those horse apples. And a little pre-spa roll in some fragrant horse poop would make a nice interlude. Perhaps on her way back from Australia, Abby will drop in and let you introduce her to your new neighbor. Invite the Beastie. She and Abby talked about having a nice spa day after MM was over.

Holy Moly Mango

I wecommend apples as well as cawwots fow youw Mama's pockets..just in case he decides to go mentals while you walk past him
smoochie kisses

HoundDogMom said...

What a handsome 4 legged critter that is. We have never seen a horse up close or far away. And we hate to see what size of poop that thing has. We always thought Tabby was a mini horse because of her poop so you better watch out when you on your walkies and stuffs. That would be really hard to get out from between your toes. BOL Sniffs, The Hounddogs

Anonymous said...

BOL! I sure hope it doesn't eat you Mango.

Looks kinda nice to me :) Maybe he'll grow up to be really big and strong and can take you on rides! :D

Waggin at ya,

Sue said...

Hey Mango, we're here to tell you from experience that horse poop is great stuff to roll in. Think of it as a skin conditioner.

Mango! YOu're missing the point... Finally someone your size to play with! And weren't you buddies with Chrome during MM? trust me, the horsie? he's your pal.

Oskar said...

Wow, no wonder Pea was in a tizzy.

We are thankful that there is no lipstick in your header picture.

mango my MANGO...ALTHOUGH I am certain that your horse is very scarey for you....we have a far worse problem...please go to my blog...

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

Cute baby horse. Don't worry they don't eat meat. They just eat out at pasture or store bought food. You're safe.


Laura, Lance, and Vito said...

so cute!!!!

Sunshade said...

OMdoG!! What an exciting new neighbour, you know what that means right? Extra TREATS with lots of fiber!!

How big is he going to get?? Will he be hooked up to a carriage?

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Bassetmomma said...

Your new neighbor looks adorable! Mutant Mastiff eating? Uh....I think not!

Moose Dog said...

There are mutant mastiffs where you live? Or wait, is that horse thing a mutant mastiff? Whatever that is I would be on high alert! That ins even weirder than that peacock that knocked on my door awhile back!
