Tricky Tuesday - Kind of

Well, we got a little snow but it is all crusty nasty right now. Not the kind of snow that a mastiff wants to be teetering around in. Heck, I already fell down a couple of times and (I'll admit it) cried like a little girl. Ouch! Like it totally grabs my legs and applies the torque must uncomfortably.

So last night, when Momma asked what we wanted to do for fun, I suggested we work on our tricks and dance moves. Yuh, for sure, nothing like learning something new to wear one out, right?

You can watch it here or below. You will see that I am a bit rusty on my moves and PeeWee is, well, a total spazoid (as usual). ARG! And momma has on those stupid plaid pants again. Nice fashion statement. NOT!


Mango Man! Oh yeah!

The drool is a nice addition mate! Has Dexter got a high bark after landing awkwardley om Momma's knee?!! Deccy x

Gus said...

Mango Man...please be careful while the snow is slicery! Relentlessly Huge dogs must be more careful than labradorks.

We like the dance routine and think you had a wonderful idea.


Amber DaWeenie said...

the slow and smoooth mastiff way is a bit more calming than the swift doink doinky lab way...

The Army of Four said...

I loved the way you were weaving around that cane! Way to go, Mango! What's up with the box, though? I thought those were for cats.
We don't like snow when it gets the icy, crusty stuff! That's not good for any pup!!! It's going to be in the 70s here today, so you guys should come over!
Play bows,

Queen Goob said...

You forgot to mention your mom's slippers....MY EYES!!! They were for traction due to the mouthwatering treat hazards, weren't they? I got much dizzy watching the labradork and had to take a nap to calm my nerves.

Peace Out!

Leslie said...

Wow, Dexter's a bouncy boy, isn't he? Such enthusiasm!

You guys are real showmen though - can't wait to see you on Broadway. ;)

This was fun.

Bouncing Bertie said...

It can't be a coincidence that Google put up an ad for 'mans dress pants purple' at the bottom of that video.

But hey, come on Mango, give Momma a break. We think she's suffering from kilt-envy, with all that plaid.

Oh and anyway, with material that thin and flappy, well let's just say I could have torn the offending garment to shreds in no time at all.

A final point - you are keen to criticise Mango. But we think Mango Momma needs help. How about some positive fashion recommendations for a change?

Toodle pip!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

THAT was a lot of work.

achieve1dream said...

Awesome!!! I love how Peewee bounces out of the box. I think he's saying the box is RH and he needs a Peewee sized one lol.

You did a good job Mango! I'm impressed with your cane circling skills. :D

Also I love the plaid pants!! I'm totally on a plaid thing lately hehe.

Anonymous said...

well, i will say the pants were worth it alone to watch but man, some mad skills you two have! pea, i love that cracker jump. and RH... it takes a lot of mentals to work around that much plaid. i feel ya man.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Our mama lurvvvves your mama's plaid, flannel pants. Finally another female courageous enough to wear her plaids proudly! (Our mommy has several pair of diff. plaids and wears them everywhere.) Okay, to your dance video: We give you a solid 8. Points deducted for slobber, but added back in for the pole dance! Peewee gets 10. The box dance move was phenomenal!! You both did great.
Smooches from pooches,

harrispen said...

What a fun video. You shouldn't chastise your mom for those pants when you are sporting quite the drool string.


Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

At least your Momma's socks match her shirt! I can't believe the socks Mommy puts on sometimes. Sometimes, Mommy's socks are totally out of season -- like she purposely wears her socks with pumpkins on them for the 4th of July and she wears Christmas socks on Halloween. Oh, and for the dancing, we kinda hoped the tutu would make a comeback. Loved the Mango in the ballet last year!

Cool video - we liked being entertained. Maybe you need to take that show on the road.

Gosh, Dexter - you sure do have a case of the jumping beans!
You guys look like you were having fun!

Love ya lots,

scotsmad said...

Impressive! we love the dangling dancing drool.

My DOH has some plaid sleepy pants -

Hers are blues so they don't look khwite so dorky -

Just sayin'

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Uncle Mango, first mum says it is not possible to wear plain colours when you live with slobber and drool. Multi colour, stripes, plaid, or the best would possibly be camouflage pants. I of course, loved the drool and your majestic movement. Has Dexter been drinking red cordial or something? He's bloomin fast. Loved the video. No worries, and slobber, Rory and Stella

Beans4Biscuits said...

You 2 are AMAZING (especially you Mango the Magnificent)! I especially like the 'pole dancing'..WOW!

chicamom85 said...

Mango, the suds were a-flying my pal. You did great, but didn't you get dizzy doing that spinning dervish thing?? I would. I love getting into boxes and just snuggling and falling asleep. I do sometimes have nightmares about waking up at the post office, so maybe I should rethink that.

Dexter, that is an amazing move to get out of the box, its like you are spring loaded!

That was fun

Loveys Sasha

p.s. Mommy is eying up those pants and thinks they look comfy, please don't give her any ideas.

Marjie said...

Hey, now, Mango, if Momma didn't wear those stupid plaid pants, you'd have that much less amusement in your life! You should thank her for trying to make you guys laugh!

Laura, Lance, and Vito said...

What a fun evening! The dogs looks happy and probably tired!

Honey the Great Dane said...

what a cool video! We loved it! We think it's so good of your Momma to do stuff with you, even when you can't go to a proper walk outside.

Hey! Mango – you never told me that you learned that pole trick as well! How very cool! You are looking great. Just a tip from Hsin-Yi – she says that if your Momma tries to get Dexter to go under her arm first (i.e. through) rather than around the pole first outwards, that makes it easier. You know what I mean? Coz like if she gets Dexter to go out first round the pole first than her hands get stuck luring him around the stick – whereas if she gestures him to go through under the arm first, he will automatically turn around the stick to come back in front of her. I hope that makes sense! basically he is learning to walk through the archway formed by the stick and the arm and it just so happens that when he walks through the archway then he turns around making a U-turn around the stick and comes back in front of your Momma. That sort of translates into walking in a circle around the pole. You're doing it so well that I think you're human can start trying to walk in the other direction at the same time – that would look really cool! :-)

I like that it is well worth Dexter was popping out of the box – just like a "jack in the box"! :-)

Honey the great Dane
PS. Hsin-Yi said to tell your Momma sorry that she has not replied to her e-mail yet but she's having a sort of "mentals meltdown" at the moment with all the stuff that's going on here – if you want the details, you can read it on my latest post - so she is only doing urgent e-mails and messages at the moment. It might take her a while to catch up with things.

Oh thank dog you're back...I was getting bored...well, Scruffy has a new tricking of piss er um peeing his brains out on our laundry room and pantry doors...Mumsie thinks he has a bladder in fek shun...and when Daddy left a casserole dish on the counter tonight 1/3 of the way filled with spaghetti, Mumsie looked up and saw the BAD DALE chowing down on the remains...his breath smells. Not unusual here...

XXOO Love those pants!!!


houndstooth said...

Hee hee hee! Was Dexter's part done in warp speed? He looks so agile and quick! Perhaps he and your mama are running away to the circus together. It would explain the pants...


Moose Dog said...

Whoa I am totally impressed with both of you! I really thought pea's movie parts were on super fast speed! Momma has been playing that clicky game with me lately. I am so excited I get all spazzy but not super fast like pea. Your trick were totally genius level too. You are like a Mensa Mastiff I guess!

Priscilla said...

Very neat!!! Now I know what you've been doing during your break time.

Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

Mango Astaire !!! Has a nice ring to it and you have 4 legs to watch instead of two!

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

We're thinking that those pants are probably slobber-proof or something. Dude, you two are WAY more talented than we are (or maybe Mom just didn't raise us right). No WAY would I be getting in a box like that! Keep up the smooth moves, RH!

Chester said...

Don't be deceived Mango and Pea - I think your DOH was tirin' you out so you would happily go to LaLa Land while she went out on a date with this dood:


Woofs and upbeat slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Sue said...

Those are some wild moves you guys have. We're afraid you might give our Mom some bad ideas.

Au and Target said...

We're laughing so much that our whiskers are curling. And that's just from the pants :-) Love the way you jumped in and out of that box, Dex. pawsome!

Koobuss said...

Great video! It was a thrill a minute. And, I love your momma's outfit. My mom has a few like that, too.

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

jen said...

Nice moves! I had no idea you both were so talented!

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

Mango that was some magnificent drool you had going on. Wow!! You've got some great dance moves.

I had to laugh as Pea hopped in and out of the box. He's so happy and full of energy. I bet he keeps you on your toes. Poor Mango no wonder you need your meditations. I'm with you buddy I've got an energizer doggie in my house too :) Want me to send her for a visit??
