Day 3 of Norwood's Dog Days of Summer (and a shocking postscript)

Grab this picture and play along


Obviously, idiot PeeWee is obsessed with his tennis ball. No contest. Just hearing the phrase "tennis ball" sends the little dude's mentals into overdrive.

Throw it now, before I explode!

Me? Well, my favorite toy is ALWAYS whichever toy is in the jaws of that black devil.

Fear not! The Mango is swift and highly capable of chasing down the labradoink and reclaiming MY toys as demonstrated in this archival video.

Little dude didn't stand a chance....

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Sore loser, Tank, has besmirched the name of Mango Minster! I kid you not. He actually accused me of being in cahoots with none other than Evil Devil Kitty Allred You can read his tirade here.

By the way, I think Bad Sports Judge, Maggie Mae's comment summed up The Mango's feelings quite well.
"Dat Beelzebub kitteh still scares da crap out of me!"

Great strategy, Mango !!
I loved the video


Asta said...

I too am somewhat obcessed wif tennis balls , but no one is to the level of the Labwadoink, hehehe. Thank dog that you'we able to outsmawt him wif youw soopewiow mentals. As fow that uncelled fow accoosation. I am shocked

Evewyone knows the Mango doesn't have and evil bone in his welentlessly hooge body . The howwid heat is solely the fault of that scaiwy Allwed and his deevi uss bwain (wif maybe a tiny contwibooshun fwom yoow postewiow )

I'm so glad I saw you staggewing awound the woad when I came by wif my scootew. The handlebaws got a little bent when you sat on them, but they wewe easily fixed and my tiwes have been we-inflated. You must not ovewdoo all that phisical activity in this heat sweet fwiend
Smoochie kisses

Funny story...I gotted a pressie from Maggie Mae and Max...MANGO treats, I kid you not!

I likes my tennis balls too but dang, Dexter needs some therapies fur his OCD.


Gus said...

Talk about deee vi uss brains...that was a master strategy move by the Mango.

Your strategy may have been slow paced but it is the end result that counts, right?

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning


I fell asleep watching this action packed game.

I'm pretty sure that Allred is the face of evil! I bet it was going to be in the dictionary, but they kept bursting into flames so they had to take the picture out. I'm shocked that someone would accuse you so heinously!


Sam said...

Sam has the same obsession with tennis balls - Monty just likes to eat them.


Casey said...

Meh, tennis balls. I've never seen the point. Why chase some tiny ball when you can have a big fluffy squeaky toy?!

Dozer and Coop said...

We were totally enthralled and captivated by the stunning movie. The speed, the plot, the sheer magnitude of his Mango-ness. It all worked and made your film worthy of an OSCAR!!!

LOVE, Dozer and Cooper

Amber DaWeenie said...

Thinks ya needs to speed it up a little, big guy! Or are you planning a sneak attack?

Anonymous said...

"Sore loser?" Duh. I'd bet my last doggy biscuit that not one shred of kitty DNA exists in that vile creature known as Allred.

However, after watching that video of you chasing down Pea at warp speed for a toy made me realize I might as well go bark at a tree stump.

Maggie Mae and Max said...


Dude, if I had know my mom bought Mango treats fur my Puddles I would have told her to take them's just not right.;)

Great display of your chasing abilities, well done my furiend!

Your Buddy,

BOL!!! You are too funny Dexter! Do you have a heart shaped head?

The Army of Four said...

I thought that video was great! Kind of hard to follow, what with you guys flying around so fast and all, but what matters is that you got the toy and that Dex was really pretty nice about it!
Dave and I got really confused by Tank. We thought you had been possessed by Allred. I think the heat's really gotten to him!
Play bows,

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

Mango Man, you are the master of stealth! We were watching the video and were impressed at your stealthiness - sneaking around like that. And the speed. And gracefulness! We were speechless! We laughed! We cried! But you clearly have the psychological edge over that black cracker dog you live with! Nice work, big guy!

Heh Heh Heh Well Mango you did win in the end BOL! That's pawsome perseverance my furiend :) Wink Wink Dexter Hardy Har Har.

Now, I did take a peek at what Tank was accusing you of. Mango? The culprit of Global Warming? Well I guess if you found yourself lying beneath His Massiveness, you may just believe Tanks accusation ;)

Waggin at ya,

Sue said...

Love that high speed chase. Just let us know and we'll come help you out, Mango. We're really fast and we can confuse anyone.

Why is the first toy to get picked up the one that everyone wants?
Morgan, Sebastian and the Porties

Mitch and Molly said...

Your strategy was perfect, Mango and we loved the look on Dexter's face at the end of the video. Priceless!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Daisy Dog said...

As always Mango, perfect! Hey we want to follow you on Facebook. What are you under, we are Pink Daisy :)

garthriley said...

AWESOME video! Poor Mango - you don't have a chance against a labradork! We are all highly skilled at the patented Labrador Evasive Maneuver.

Tennis balls ROCK!!!

your pal,

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

Mango I think we should get together to play a game for large slower dogs :) That video looks like what happens in our house. Do you prefer fetch, catch, or find it?


Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Skillful stalking cannot be rushed! That was some excellent mastiff stalking style, RH. And you prevailed in the end by wearing the Pea down, which is just how those top notch African click-language hunters in Botswana get their prey. Of course they run a little more, but the principle is the same.

Abby was appalled at Tank's attack on you and we left a comment on his blog. The little dude has yet to learn that discretion is the better part of valor sometimes. Although he did have the presence of mind to make sure you still live about 1800 miles away from him.
