My Relentlessly Huge Trip to the Salon (with Video)

Woo hoo! I totally LOVE going to the beauty parlor!

Well, OK, I love it as long as we don't have to leave at some absurdly early hour of the morning. 

The Mango needs another cup of coffee

You know what? Most doggies have to go into stupid crates and stuff, but not ME! No sir! I have the run of the entire place. You know it!

Bye momma! Have fun at work.

So I had momma make a movie of my big day but because she had to go to the work place she didn't get to actually see me getting my whirlpool treatment and soothing massage. Whatever. It is still kind of a fun movie. You can watch it here.

Phew! A day of beauty is exhausting. 

Chase tennis ball? NO WAY!

 I am just going to lay here looking handsome.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

You are indeed handsome. What a great spa day. Can't your mama do that flex time thing and go in later so you don't have to get up so early!?

Amber DaWeenie said... look great! I can understand they wouldn't want to put you in a crate! Fur one thing, there isn't a crate big enough..


H and Flo said...

Wow! And there's me thinking that being that gorgeous was effortless... what a relief.

Jeanne Pursell said...

You are positively THE most handsome dude EVAH!!! We totally loved your video of the spa day!! You sure got them trained...we don't get the run of the place. You look GREAT! Bet you feel really good too!! Rock on!! xoxo Chloe and We still cannot figure out why you cannot comment on our blog! I currently have it set to "Anyone...including anonymous users" so I cannot for the life of me figure out why you cannot comment???? What happens if you just type in and go directly to the blog...does it let you do it that way? You guys are the only ones who aren't able to comment and it is driving me nuts!!

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

Yuh. Like there is a crate in existence big enough to hold you! But dude - you are awfully brave at the groomer - Mom has to take us on Saturdays, because we want to be there for the Shortest Time Possible. I mean, they have hair clippers. And noisy dryers. And yapping dogs. Ugh!

But you are Relentlessly Handsome!

Mango, it is hard to believe that your handsomeness could be improved upon, but I must say they did a wonderful job.

Priscilla said...

Looking handsome, Mango!

Can't believe that you had to spent 8 hours at the salon but they did do a fantastic job on you.

Piappies World said...

You look soooo handsome, Mango!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Oh Uncle Mango, we are in awe. You are the bravest, most relentlessly huge mastiff ever! You went 8 hours without your Momma and wagged your tail at those other doggies and had all the beautifying stuffs done as well? Mum says we must take notice of the Mango for he is a role model! Oh yeah. See ya big dude. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Mitch and Molly said...

Hey, we saw an Airedale getting groomed! I wish it could have been me so I could have said hi to you in person, Mango!

Love ya lots,

Shiny & looking so good!!!!

Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

Looking handsome big fella - but hey I just noticed something.....when did you get your grey looks like one of that handle bar tashes I think they call it,

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

So you got a whirlpool and a massage and then got to spend 8 hours flirting with the floofy lady dogs who were getting groomed? Sounds like a good day to Jed - as long as they had an RH-sized bed available for intermittant meditations. So has Pee already gone, or is it his turn next? You look very shiny and squeaky clean. Time for a nice roll in the grass.

We got baths recently, too. Jed got a regular bath, but Abby had to have a special bath due to her skin allergies. She had another one last night, too. Jed is feeling smug.

Taffy and Angel Twix said...

Hi guys! Just stopping by to say hi. We've been missing our furiends terribly but can't get back to blogging right now. Momma has been missing you guys so much she is getting teary eyes reading some posts tonight. (It is a rare night at home without the other 4 people that moved into our house 6 months ago!) Glad you like the groomer....I am not much of a fan. They make me so nervous I start drooling like you do :o)

Love and hugs,

Sarge said...

Hey DamnitMango and PeeWee!
Wow, that's right! These are your winning (and only) names for the next week thanks to the votes from the other day. Thanks for playing along and I love your BOL nicknames. Good luck in the drawing!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, Host

Mango I have never seen your tail was so much or so fast! What a happy day you had at the salon BOL! You gave me BIG Smileys :D

Waggin at ya,

The Boston Lady said...

Mango, I should have realized you were a diva! Or divo, as the case may be. I think you could run that grooming joint! Ann TBL

Being handsome is a hard job and someone's got to do it. Glad you are on top of things Mango!

The Army of Four said...

You look totally awesome, Mango! All the girl pups are going to go bonkers over you! Even more than they already do!
Play bows,

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

That sure was an exciting day. I bet you had have long meditations after all that.

Funny how Pea was sniffing all over you trying to figure out where you had been all day. I think he was jealous of your adventurous day.

It sure is nice they don't stuff you in one of those tiny crates. By all that petting and scratching you were getting I'm thinking you must be V.I.D.

Mango you is just one huge handsome dude!

You handsome devil!! :)

I think blogger ate our comment. Bet the ladies in the salon were lovin the Mango getting all spiffed up!

Chester said...

I guess it's nice to know how the other half lives. My "spa day" consisted of a 5 gallon bucket of warm water, a bottle of shampoo and Mom in her rain pants. I can only dream of someday payin' some nice, trained ladiez to pamper me like you got. It's very easy to see that your day of special treatment took away all the stress and tension in your face.

Woofs and tensile slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Honey the Great Dane said...

Gosh, Mango - I freaked out as soon as I saw that scary lino floor thing in your video. You sure were brave to even walk on that - never mind going into the salon. Which - by the way - isn't that just a fancy word for the Evil Bath Thing??? I can't believe you actually go along with that - and wag your tail too!!! (And I have to say, I couldn't really tell the difference when you walked out again...)

But I did like that shot of your swaying - er, hinny, as you have taught me to say - ooh, this video should have come with a warning for older ladies - it gave me a hot flush just watching you walk! ;-)

ps. just catching up as usual!!!!!!

Moose said...

I go to a torture spa that looks just like that. They cut my nails off there! No way could I make it 8 hours tho, dude you are brave. I think it is unfair they hide that place in the store with foods and toys so I totally let my guard down. Glad you enjoyed it!
