Abandonment and Presents

So yesterday, momma and master left together to go to work (or so I assumed) but then it got to be dark and night time and momma did not come home! Yuh, like totally Master gave me my phenobarbital which NEVER happens and then it got later and later and pretty soon it was bed time and I went to sleep even though I was all thinking "where the heck is momma?"

Then this morning it was time to get up for sure and I paced around but NOBODY GOT UP! And then finally at (can you believe it) 7AM! Master came all stumbling out of the sleeping room and fed me and Pea. Where is Momma? I wondered?

Well, she came home at last this afternoon. So I had words with her, you know it!


Momma: "Oh, Mango, I had to go to the emergency room because I had a bad owie in my chest."

Me: "What are you talking about? You seem fine to me."

Momma: "Well, Mango, I feel fine, but the doctors and nurses and Master were very worried and so they wanted me to have a sleepover at the hospital."

Me: "As if! What did you do there?"

Momma: "I got on the treadmill and..."

Me: "Was it underwater like my treadmill? Did you get noms while you did it? Did you get a massage after?"

Momma: "Well, not exactly, but they did give me some crackers."

Me: "Next time, you just tell PT lady you want to share my treadmill time. No more overnight excursions."

Momma: "You got it, big guy."

So Momma says she is fine and all the activities she did at the hospital were "negative" which doesn't sound good to me, but go figure, right?

And I'm not too bothered, you know, because when she came home we opened some pressies.

Yup, like these two cool Airedale books from our buddy Taffy. Loyal readers know that momma is gaga for Airedales and I do kind of miss my old Grandpa Angus sometimes.

And from Bolo we got a flat blue thing called a Frisbee (which looks like it will be good to eat) and a tiny little tennis ball for Pea.

Plus a note pad with Bolo's face on it! How cool is that?

And you know what else? Tomorrow I am going to do MY treadmill and I am going to ask if momma can do it with me since she is so keen on it and I might even let her have some of my special treadmill hot dogs.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Mango, you must have been so scared without your Mommy. I would have freaked out as I am a Momma's girl. I am glad she came back and that you got cool pressies.

Mango Momma, we are so sorry that you had a bad night and also so glad that you are ok. I hope they find out what made you have ouchies and fix it. Maybe you need to eat more lettuce(joking cause I don't think you like lettuce, giggles). Maybe you need to stay home with Mango and Dexter more, there is nothing like a loving doggy to heal what ails you.

Mango, abandonment is one thing, but Momma having an owie in her chest is even worse. We all hope she is OK.

Sounds like a scary night, I do really hope that all is well!

Those are some great presents!

Mango dude, you have been gone so long. I missed your little nose. I am glad to hear that your human is mostly all right.

Those are some pretty cool pressies too. My Vickie loves the head light you sent, she goes outside at night, just to wear it.


harrispen said...

Maybe the stress of Mango Minster finally caught up to your momma and that is what put her in the hospital. I hope she feels better and doesn't have any more chest pains.


Sally Ann and Andy said...

I love those books you have from my fellow welsh man. Aren't those doggies cute? I hope your Mommy feels better. I love those tennis balls from petsmart. Give your Mommy lots of licks and hugs.

I hope you are alright Mango Momma. And you know, the big fella is right - never get on a treadmill unless there are treats and massages involved. Crackers don't count, by the way. :)

rottrover said...

Mmango, tell your Momma to eat some grass. If that doesdn't work, give her a big hug from us and make her rest a little... BYW how's your auntie??


Two French Bulldogs said...

Glad you are fine momma Mango. How did get some treats

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh my goodness, Mango - that sounds really scary about your Momma!! We hope she's OK. Hsin-Yi is something called a "hypochondriac" and she got really worried reading about you & your Momma's conversation! I'm glad the tests all came out negative but I hope they can give her some answers for why she got the chest ouchie - and how to stop getting it again!

You're a good boy to share your treadmill with Mama. Tell her to take very good care of herself.

Priscilla said...

What a scary night without your momma! So glad that she is home at last and hope she is really okay.

Anyway, I'm sure you will take good care of her and it's a good idea of sharing your treadmill with her.

Bouncing Bertie said...

Oh I just can't wait to see some photos of you and Momma in the treadmill together.
Meanwhile, you make sure she looks after herself. We don't want to hear about any more nights in the hospital and away from Mango.
Toodle pip!

You better to good care of your Momma mate! Deccy x

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Oh my dog, Uncle Mango, we're so glad to hear your Momma is back home where she belongs. That must have been scarey for everybuddy. At least the Master took good care of you, even if he was a bit slovenly with getting up in the morning.

If Momma shares your treadmill, will her legs go all funny on the sides too? Please look after her and make sure she rests and gets heaps of treats. Sending hugs and more healing slobber. No worries, and LOVE, Stella and Rory

Macintosh Mitch said...

I think it's a wonderful idea that you and your momma will treadmill together, Mango!

Love ya lots,

Tucker, Daisy and Leo said...

Hey Mango, sure hope your Momma is doing okay. Good presents, for sure.

Peruby said...

Mango - I looked back on your posts and recently your momma said they were going to clear the deck.

Did this cause any extra strain or did momma pull a muscle?

I get pleurisy easily and it always hurts in my chest, hopefully the doc took chest x-rays and ruled that out.

Love reading your posts, keep us informed but only if you feel like it. Momma may just need you to sit there and wash her paws for her.

Jen said...

Mango Mamma, take it easy.... rest, relax and get better !! Sorry to hear of your overnighter, but glad to hear all tests were negative, at least.

Yeah for pressies for the big guy and the labradude. :)

Mango, please tell your momma that we hope she is feeling better and that it's good to hear those negative results in this instance. I think you boys need to serve her breakfast in bed! Ann TBL

Casey said...

That's very sweet of you to offer to share your treadmill time with your momma! I'm glad she's feeling better, but that's kind of scary. :(

Sammie and Avalon said...

Hi Mango, we will be praying for your wonderful momma and sending loving vibes. I think it is so nice of you to share your treats with your momma!


Mimi and CC Cabana said...

I hope you had a nice little vacay while you were away at the hospital. Sometimes, that's the only way to get some R&R and more importantly, get waited on hand and foot! Keep us posted, and keep healthy!

Mango we were most upset to read your Momma had a sleepover at the hospital, thank goodness it was only one night and she is home safe and sound.

Oskar said...

We're glad you momma's sleepover went well, but I would take the treadmill with the hot dogs over the one with the crackers any old time.

Nice loot you got from your friends!

I'd like to officially invite you & Pea to be featured on my blog at It's a great way to meet new blogging friends. If you're interested you can drop me a line at PBU at comcast dot net.

No Momma to feed you or sleep with awful!!! I don't know what I would do.

Our prayers are with you. Make sure to give your Momma extra snuggles and lovins because it makes all things better :)

Hey big guy - were you actually worried about your Mommie???? Ssssshhhh we won't tell anyone. We sure hope she is feeling better and won't have any more scary attacks

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

We hope Mango Momma is feeling better! Don't worry us like that anymore Mango Momma!

houndstooth said...

Your poor mama! It sounds like we've finally found someone who's had a worse weekend than my mom, and it's been pretty bad here. I hope you're taking good care of her! At least she's home and you won't have to deal without her for a while. I'm sorry that her treadmill experience was not nearly as nifty as yours!


Moose Dog said...

Sorry you were abandoned. Thank goodness she is back and it is super nice of you to treadmill, hotdog massage time. You are so generous!
