Before I start my post for today, here are some important announcements from around blogland!
Hey! Guess what? Maxmom's way cool awesome book all about her life with MaxDog is now available to order online right here in the U.S.! You know it!
Click here to find out how to order and also how to enter a contest to win your own autographed copy.
You know what else? Remember Chrome who won first place Adventure Animal at Mango Minster 2012? Well, for his third birthday, he got all fancied up and his momma went for a ride on his back for the first time ever and it was totally way cool awesome! Let's here it for Chrome! You can see all the action here.
Miss Lily is home recuperating from really serious emergency back surgery.
Finally, my friend, Molly, who is the sissy of Most Cracker Critter winner Taffy, is having surgery today and could use your good thoughts. Visit her here.
Momma FINALLY got her photo scanner working again so I immediately asked her to scan in some pictures of, well, ME!
But first check, out this photo of Grandpa Angus when he was a baby! Wow! He was tiny just like Miss Molly.
Can you believe that's my momma? No grey furs on her. Imagine. Hey! For all you nerds in the audience, go ahead and bigify. The photo in the background is a watchercall particle accelerator. Nerd art! Ish!
Lookit! Here is Grandpa Angus and Baby Beautiful Raja. I never knew Beautiful Raja was that tiny! Even smaller than an Airedale.
But enough of that, because I know that you come here to see pictures of me. Go ahead, admit it, you just can't get enough of The Mango.
Momma sometimes tries to convince me that Raja didn't always like me very much. I know she is wrong. How could she not like such a handsome little dude. Damn! I can hardly stand looking at my own cuteness.
Can you believe that this used to be all we had for sun baking (as opposed to the observation deck that I have now). No worries, plenty of room for two. Grandpa Angus preferred to retreat to his hole in the ground during warm weather. Different strokes I suppose.
Obviously my exceptional handsomeness was clear from day one. Oh indeed.
Mango Man! Oh yeah!
P.S. Just to complete the set, momma asked me to post this photo of little Pi (whom I never met) with Grandpa Angus. She says that Grandpa Angus was totally in love with Pi just like I loved my Beautiful Raja and that he was sad when she had to cross over the bridge before him.
