It's The Mango's Birthday (and momma doesn't care)

The Mango is still officially on blogging break because Momma is a total freak a zoid lazy thing. 

OK, so maybe last week Master had emergency eyeball surgery and all that but seriously, it's all about ME! Right?

Where is the love? Like she was all driving Master into Boston (couldn't she just drop him at the train station?) and then "Oh Master, what can I do? Do you want me to go shopping for you? Do you want me to read a book to you?" And all she does for me is take me to see evil vampire blood sucking voodoo zombie lady at the vet along with belt sander nail trimming witch. 

I am 7 years old today which is a Relentlessly Huge thing. 

But is there a party? A cake? A pat on the head? NOTHING! 

Look! I even have to recycle this happy party time photo from 3 years ago! That's so wrong.

Just wanted to let my pals know in case any of you wanted to send me some leftover pizza or something... anything really.... a used stuffie, a bag of dirt... The Mango is so neglected!

Momma says to be patient and her mentals will adjust back to normal levels of crazy soon.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. I am supposed to tell you that Master's surgery went well and he is recovering on schedule. Whatever.

Oh poor Mango ! it is not fair to be negleted on such important day!
Happy birthday to you ! I'm sending you a lot of licks!
I'm 7 years old too !! It's a nice dog age indeed !
I'm glad your Master is recovering on schedule !

Niamh said...

Happy Birthday Mango! We will be happy to report your Momma to the MSPCA for extreme cruelty if you need us to. All this blood sucking and belt sanding must stop. Steal some food when she isn't looking. We hope she makes it up to you big time (and glad that master is ok).

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Bouncing Bertie said...

Happy Birthday Mango, you poor neglected soul. A recycled card? It's a disgrace. I mean it sounds like the Master is doing OK and all that.
Toodle pip!
PS Gail says I must say that we quite understand how frazzled Momma must feel and we wish the Master all the best for a continued good recovery.
As you you say, Mango, whatever...

Bolo said...

Hap-Pei Birthday Mango!

Solidarity in slobbers!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

This is disgraceful. Our poor dear Uncle Mango. How the heck does your Momma live with herself. And the Master! Fancy putting eyeball surgery before your birthday. Its quite unbelievable.

We wish you a very Happy Birthday Uncle Mango. We could send some leftover cake although by the time it gets to you it would be more of a hard dry biscuit. Still, that's better than what you have got now! So sorry the family have neglected you. They had better make it up big time for sure.

Oh, Mum says she hopes the Master recovers very soon. We do too cause then he can give you a proper birthday party!

See ya big dude. No worries, and extra love cause you are neglected, Stella and Rory

Happy Birthday Mango! :D Now what's this about no celebration?! No cake, no pawty, no big juicy bone to drool over, no playtime with the Momma, no NOTHING?! Your Momma is in the DOG HOUSE BIG TIME!

Maybe Pea will take pity and find a fun way to celebrate your very special day with you :)

Glad your Dad's eyeball is okay now! That must have scared your pawrents some. Hurray for happy outcomes! :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MANGO! You're looking good and from the looks of your blog's banner picture, you're having a nice Lab feast! How many dogs get to do that?! I'm sure Dexter isn't feeling the love, but hey, it's your birthday...

Hound Girl said...

houndstooth said...

Happiest of Birthdays, Mango! I have the ASPCA on speed dial, and I'll call them if you want. You need to tell your mama that she owes you a big party!


Sam and Pippen said...

Happy Birthday, Mango! We just got back from the post office - we've sent you a box of used kitty litter... We thought it would be lots more fun then ordinary dirt!

(glad to hear your Master is recovering well:)

The Heartbeats said...

Happy Birthday my friend! If I lived closer, I'd take you out to the strip club for some entertainments and manly beers!


Priscilla said...

Happy 7th Birthday, Mango! I'm so sorry to hear that your momma neglected your big day and you even had to recycle the old pawty hat.

Hope Dexter did give your some entertainment even thought they were silly!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

I am so glad that Mr. Master's eye surgery went well. I wish him continued FAST and FULL RECOVERY.

BUTT SERIOUSLY... HOW COULD SHE??? No Celebration for your SEVENTH Birfday?

I think that woman needs a Blast of Mango GAS!

Jen Green said...

Happy Birthday Mango!

The nerve of some dog's mamas, neglecting them shamelessly on such an important day!! Ah well, good thing Master is healing up well!!

Happy 7Th Mango! Hope you still get some cake later!!

Tucker, Daisy and Leo said...

Happy birthday, Mango. If you can brave life outside 495 you and come and hang with us in New Braintree. But we don't think Mommy will let us have a pizza party.

Hope your Master is doing well too.

Tucker and Daisy

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

Happy Birthday, Mango! I can't believe that the DOH is all into taking care of the Master (who probably detached his eyeball ALL ON HIS OWN), and has TOTALLY NEGLECTED you. Dude. That is So. Wrong. I think you should raid the DOH's purse, get one of her plastic cards, and call your local pizza delivery place, so you can have your own birthday party. I wouldn't share with the DOH OR the Master.

We love you, even if the DOH appears to be otherwise occupied!

Happy Birthday Mango, you handsome boy you!!

I'm a new reader to your blog and am looking forward to things getting back to 'normal' so I can learn more about you. I'm very happy to hear that Master's surgery went well and he is on his way to full recovery.

I recently started using WTF Wednesday on my blog. I thought I was doing something original, but I found out from Kari at Hound Girl that you were the originator, so I came to give you props and thank you. I have a number of readers who love it!!

HoundDogMom said...

Oh, Mango we sorry to hear their are no bells and whistles for you B-Day. We do wish you a very Happy Happy Bark-Day because 7 is pretty special. Even though today is all about you, we are glad the Master is healing. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

Mr. Pip said...

What no party? No cake? No cheeseburgers! This is an absolute travesty! Happy Birthday, my brave, mistreated friend!

Your pal, Pip

Happy Birthday dude!

Your Buddy,

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Happy Birthday, Mango - Lightning is delighted to know he shares his birthday with someone as pawesome as the RH.

Good to know that Master's surgery went well. We know all about eye problems here with Dad, and now the Momster may be looking at something like Master had in the future - so be sure to take notes on what works and what doesn't.

Have a good weekend.

Happy birthday, Mango! Seven is a great age for a big guy and should be celebrated with much pomp and circumstance.

And Gretchen says we have to say we're glad your master is recovering well too.

Casey said...

Maybe your momma is letting you feel neglected to surprise you with a party later! Happy birthday anyway.

Just so you know, birthdays are so over rated. Not cake though, that's not over rated. Especially chocolate, but I'm not allowed to have chocolate, which makes me crave chocolate even more. Why did you even mention chocolate Mango? geez. What were you talking about? Oh, ya, happy b-day as we say around here. And a howdy to the master, hopes ya feeling right real soon.

Gus said...

happy Birthday Mango Man! We know that Mango Momma will catch up soon and get you a big yummy bone. We had 5Guys hangburglars for dinner, but we did not know it was your birthday so we did not save you any.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Big Guy! Sorry you are relentlessly neglected on this special day. Seven is a super big deal for sure! I hope the pea at least showed you some respect on your big day!

Moose said...

Oh and so glad master's eyeballs are ok. Momma freaks out at the thought of eyeballs surgeries. Scary. Momma would also freak out at the thought of driving in Boston. I guess there are no country doctors that do eyeballs, huh? A shame, really....

Mitch and Molly said...

Happy Birthday, Mango! We're having pizza for dindin tonight and we'll be sure to mail you a crust or two!
We're glad to hear that your master is doing okay.

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Mango, you just got your best bday present, a healthy and well Master! I know, I know, so what! At least she remembered. Ann TBL

Oh Mango, you ARE the drama KING! Happy birthday!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Happy Birthday, RH! We're sure Mango Momma will make it up to you as soon as she can. We're personally fond of a birthWEEK celebration, anyway, not just a birthDAY.

We hope the Mango Master has a full and speedy recovery. Any eyeball surgery is scary for the peeps. They don't have extraordinary noses to fall back on like we do.

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...


I'm so very sorry for your suffering. How about for your birthday you celebrate by snuggling with your Master? Then you would both be happy.

I do feel sad about you not having a cake and stuffies. I think you should march right on over here and we will bust some leftover cake out of the freezer and drag the box of new stuffies awaiting a special occasion out of the closet and have us a huge Mango sized party.


PeeS: I am very happy to hear your Master is healing right on schedule. Just remember how worried your Momma gets about the Mango when he's not feeling so well. That's how she feels when the Master is sick. She needs your support and love too. Give her some Mango sized snuggles.


tula said...

Hey Mango-- oops I almost missed your BURPDAY! hey woo don't need your momma to have fun.. I could easily swing by and oops open the gate and stuff.

just sayin.
Happy Burpday dude,

Daisy Dog said...

oh Dear!! What no Pawty!!! Well happy birthday Mango!! If we are closer we would come over and take you out to a very nice Dinner!!

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

You want a Bag of Dirt? Seriously? Hmm...we just started a garden...long story there, but we could send you some dirt. There's some with a bunch of ants in it...that would be interesting.

SEVEN? SEVEN. As in Seven Year Itch????? Oh Mango!!!!

I was so busy duct taped to Master's head, that I couldn't even bake you a cake.

Whole Foods opened here right by our house. They have cupcakes in their bakery that are only made here in da Burgh. Made of organic Heinz ketchup. Called Steel City cupcakes. Taste like spice cake and have cream cheese frosting. I just ordered several thousand for myself for this week....will send you SEVEN hundred. They are delish!!!

Oh, and when you commented on my "bathing suit" on our's a SUNDRESS. Other than my lifeguard tanksuit, I only wear bikinis. I'm just sayin'...

XXOO and 7777 barkday kisses,


Marjie said...

Happy Birthday, dear Mango! I wish I had sent you a cake. My dudes had pizza last night. If they had not scarfed it all, I'd totally be sending it to you today.

xoxo Thor's Evil Witch Momma

Jeanne Pursell said...

We would like to officially say Happy Birthday to you Mango!! We are sorry you didn't get to have a party...if you are ever in NY, stop by and we will have a cake for you!!
