Slow Pooter

On Sunday, Momma got it into her head to purchase an external hard drive and back up ALL of our pictures and what not.

Well, the stupid thing has been running on and off ever since and totally consuming all my CPU cycles and making it very difficult to post (and visit my friends). I am hoping that it finally finishes tonight, but it still has like a gazillion files to back up, so who knows?

Master had to do an emergency pruning of the trees because it was impossible to mow the front lawn.

He was very brave with the chainsaw and all.Plus climbing up ladders which I so totally would never do.
But he managed to get the most grievous offenders hacked off and the tree doctor is coming soon to let us know what it will take to get those trees under control.Today, I went to the spa for a day of beauty (and for any doggies living in the MetroWest area of Boston, I highly recommend this spa destination). Unfortunately, you know who did not bring the camera, so no live action photos, but here I am after my spa day.See? I am extra super duper shiny squeekie clean (and I smell really good).Whilst at the spa, several peoples came through for a tour of the facilities and they were most impressed to see my large and handsome self in the beauty parlor (but, sigh, again, no photos). For those of you labrafans, yes, the midget went too. Big deal. He had to use a special medicated shampoo because he has the itchies.OK, done with the photo shoot, I am exhausted from my day of beauty. The pooter is still backing up, so unless I can convince Momma to let me use her work pooter, it might be a while before I can visit my pals. Besides... I am getting soooooo sleepy...Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Aw, Mango, you are bee-you-tee-full! But of course.

How wonderful that you can go to the spa! :-D Dexter looks ebautiful too, and I sure hope he hasn't had so much pain from his condition.

Thanks for commenting on my blog before--I'm glad your nephew is from SD! It's a nice place! And sorry about all the HBO words on that post...ooops.

Yeah, I need to find a place where I can have a dog! But I'm so glad I can read about your most handsome and relentlessly huge self! We'll see what happens next July when my lease is up. ;-)

Are you running Windows Vista? If so, have you installed Service Pack One? If not, you need to do it. SP1 helped greatly with the atrociously slow file copying in vista.

It's no wonder you're tired Mango. All the Adventures are bound to tire you out. Nice job snoopervising the tree and lawn cutting and the backing up of files. You look great after the spa too. Dexter does too, I guess.
Solidarity in slobber,

Hi Mango,

You are looking great after your day of beauty! Too bad pee wee had to go with. Hopefully that evil external hard drive finishes up its business soon so you can get back to business. Oh, this past weekend I think I met your cousin. Well not sure if it was your cousin, but he sure looked like you! I've got pics on my blog. hehe!

Your pal,

Yet another human that does NOT have the proper priorities!

I'm sure you'll make her pay for BOTH those sins!!

Eating into your MangoMan Puter time AND no khamera to khapture your day at The Spa!!!


Sami & Baylee said...

Mango you look just super dooper Handsome! I need to tell my mommy to take me need to the spa. I hope your pooter gets back up sson so as you can visit your bloggies friends.

Willow the Black Dale said...

Mango you look pawsome as usual. Why do they insist on taking pee wee with you for your day of rest at the spa???? Hooomans..... I just don't get them sometimes.

Dude, I figured out why you are so tired all the time. They have you stupervising every project at your house. Not to mention you have to watch ALL of your stuff due to pee wee thieving it. Oh and lets not forget about those errands you "run" with your mom!! Maybe you should go on strike and get some rest. Anyway those are my thoughts. Let me know if you need me to make up a contract for you!!!
Tail wags & smooches,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Those things of the computers are like nightmares... well that is what my mom says!
spa or not... your are handsome!
Kisses and hugs

Biggie-Z said...

Wow, Mango, you look so beautiful and relaxed after your spa day. Even PeeWee looks relaxed enough to sit still.

Me, I love Massage. But even after my bath I'm not shiny. I don't think I'm capable of getting shiny.

Deefor said...

Hi Mango Man
You look real shiny and smooth. I'm exhausted from just looking at the pictures of your master cutting all those trees. Maybe I'd like the doggie spa better if there wasn't so much brushing involved cause I'm furrier. Too bad you couldn't go alone.


The Zoo Crew said...

I've never been to the spa. Unless you call my sisters' bathroom a spa ;) It sounds like fun!


Girl Girl Hamster said...

oh how pawsome to go to a spa.
I hope your pooter works faster now.

Cassidy said...

You really are very shiny Mango. You look super duper handsome.

Hey Mango
Aren't puters so annoying sometimes. If you growl at it, it might get its act together.


Mack said...

I didn't think you could possibly get any more handsome than your relentlessly huge self....here you go and achieve the impossible...



Sophie Brador said...

You boys are looking good. And from the look of Dexter's schnoz, he's kind of almost grown up.


Agatha and Archie said...

WHOA..you both are sooo shiny it is hurting our eyes!!!ANd we think we can smell how lovely you smell all the way down here in Bsoton..Pl2 said we definitely need some of that.. Love A+A

Amber-Mae said...

Our compooter has been slow too but I think it's the line connection. Oh I donno! Hopefully your Mom will be able to solve the problem soon. You both look squeaky clean & shiny after your spa session!

Butt wiggles,

Unknown said...

Mango, you don't look like you did too much supervising of either the computer or the tree-pruning ... but you do look very handsome!

Deetz said...

You look wonderful after your big spa treatment. Dexter has the itchies? I hate the itchies!
See you soon. Tell your daddy I think he is brave to climb that ladder....I would shake his paw if he were here.

Unknown said...

Oh, I forgot to say--I am glad to see Master out there doing his he-man guy stuff chores. It's good he is feeling better!

Eric said...

Mango, how handsome are you? Very, I would say! Good job in supervising the 2 leggededs at work and play. But give that pooter a piece of your mind.

Wags, Eric

Abby said...

Hi, Mango...

You are sooo handsome after your spa treatment...Well, you are always handsome, but you do look really nice...

I hope Master is very careful when he gets on that ladder...

Abby xxxooo

Joe Stains said...

SOrry that hard drive is stealing all your thunder. I bet you are a dream customer at the spa, Pee Wee is probably more of a nightmare. You both do look nice and shiny.

Stanislaw said...

You pups look so handsome and shiny after your spa day! Sorry about your computer. That's one heck of an external drive you've got there! Mom's is wee and silly in comparison. If you have a MAC you can create a compressed backup file that will move your hard drive over to an external. It's way easier. A quick search online will walk you through it.

Good luck!

Toffee said...

But Mango you are ALWAYS a handsome boy!
oh yeah! YOu know it...
