Monkey Business

This morning I was really meditating deeply and thinking about MJ and, well, its kind of embarrassing cause my lips got all tangled up. I look like some kind of giant grouper. [Momma - Mango, pal, I don't know what you did to your lips. I'm not even sure what I'm looking at]One thing junior is good for is that due to his frequent toilet habits, Momma is working at home more. So we got to enjoy some dude bonding over a couple of stickies while she worked.Another item on the list of strange human behavior, Momma has been using my monkey stuffie as a centerpiece on the dining table (among other things because I don't think they ever actually eat at the table except to pretend they are civilized when guests come over). Of course, while the monkey is occupied thusly, I cannot enjoy its company.Finally, tonight, I convinced her to return the monkey to me, BUT, because I am a mature and generous chap, I actually let pee-wee meet the monkey first. It was hard, but by shutting my eyes tightly and going to my special place, I was able to rise above the indignity of it.

Don't look! Don't look! Remember, he's just a baby.ENOUGH! Kid can't even play with a stuffie properly. One doesn't throw oneself madly around the house all thrashing and wiggling. Stuffies should be placed in the mouth and methodically squeezed over and over and over and over and.. wait a minute, is he getting ready to do what I think he is?Huh? I don't think so.Cut it out squirtino!AR AR AR!!!!Oops! I think I accidentally bit his head off and Momma tried to stuff him under the bookcase so Master wouldn't find out. He looks like one of those doggie lawn ornaments.Reunited.Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Amber-Mae, you would be proud of me. I have almost taught Momma how to tell right from left when giving her my footies.

P.P.S. No labradudes were harmed in the making of this blog (in fact, I'm not convinced any labradudes even feel remorse for challenging me for my monkey).

Those are some very strange lips!! And I thought I was looking at the black butt labradude lawn ornament we have in our backyard....but maybe that was your peewee!

Peace + Paws,

Hi, Mango Man!
What happened to you lips in that first picture??
Looks like you and Dexter have very different ways to play with that monkey! I hope after that tug-o-war the monkey is still in one piece!
Kisses and hugs

How cow!!! Your lips...well your mouth almost looks like it has another mouth coming out of it!

Your poor monkey...did he survive the thrashing that you and Dexter gave it? Maybe you guys need a Kong Wubba...and extra large one for you and a pee wee sized one for Junior!

Hope all is well in Mango world!

Ohmydog, this may be one of the funniest posts ever. I play with my stuffies the same way. It is really undignified to go bananas over the stuffie like your little peewee does.

I still can't get over how lucky you are to have your very own puppy. My Mommy and P-Daddy were thinking of getting me a kitten but then they stopped smoking that crack stuff and now it is back to the 3 of us. But my Uncle Peter - who owns all the birds I chased last November (including the real live quacker that I caught until Mommy made me let it go) - IS GETTING TWO PUPPIES!! I can't wait to meet them.

Hugs, Biggie

Is that monkey wearing a Santa Claus hat?

Noah the Airedale said...

What's with the lips matie. Looks like you've got some sort of medical condition....should we call you mumbles ????

Did the monkey survive or is it doomed??? Looks like Dexter is getting the hang of playing tug-o-war.

Hugs and tail wags

Amber-Mae said...

Oh gee, look at your lips! Too funny! Hey. what's that wet part on the top of your head? Dis that black dude pee in that bed? Hmm...Oh, you bet I am proud of you for learning that trick! Would love to see how SHE commands you & how you do it. Keke!

Love licks,
