Mice and Cuz

Momma has been catching mice and putting them into the mouse witness relocation program. We all heard them running around upstairs. See the little mouse? We use trap and release traps. This one went to the woods behind my yard.

The next day there was another mouse in the trap (see it in the right hand side)? We took this one further away from home where it would be able to assume its new identity.

He was a little reluctant to move. He's just sticking his nose out of the trap. But finally, he took off. You can just see him under the side of the rock peeking out. Momma gave him a good talkin to and said she better never see him around these parts again.Back at home, Pee-wee went with me to the dog store and he actually went in to shop (sorry, camera was left behind). Look what the little guy picked up for me. My first Cuz!Mmmm... thanks for thinking of me.I'm likin the Cuz. Never had one before. What else did you get?Oh my!Its been raining all weekend, so we're spending a lot of time meditating in the study.Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. I just got all caught up on my mail and see I have tons of awards waiting for me!!! My pooter time is limited cause Momma is worn out from getting lost in the woods with Dexter (even though they were only lost for like 45 minutes - I'm sure the pee-wee will tell you all about it on Thursday). I am so excited! I will post my awards tomorrow.

Hey Mango Man,

I wonder what new identitys those mice will assume?
Biker Mice from Mars.. Dangermouse? ooohh maybe they will get to go to Hollywood and get famous! Your Mom is doing the mice community a great service!

That new toy looks great but ummm.. I really don't know what to say about PeeWees headgear!

Charlie Daniels said...

BOL at Khyra :-) But don't do the novel or the movie Mango 'cause you'll have to keep one paw in a lubricated glove !!!!!



Biggie-Z said...

Hey Mango, I'm surprised you're not catching the mices for your Momma. The mice relocation program seems like a pretty good idea but I know for the human one they send them all the way to, like, Arid Zoner, not just to the back of the back yard. Maybe you should start putting little colored collars on the mices and see if they're coming back.

And WHAT IS THAT on Dexter? Doesn't he know that the Big Dog Brotherhood doesn't allow dressing up!?

So glad to see you found no-kill mousetraps. Mommy freaked out when Mica caught a mouse in our apartment last year. It was just a little guy and he must not have been too bright to come into an apartment with a cat AND a terrier.

We'll look for those traps if we ever hear any squeaking again!

Your pals,

Petey and Mica

Kirby said...

Wow, you guys use really cool mouse traps. Did you guys go crazy when you saw the mice? One once ran across my living room and I just rolled over. I was too tired to care. He he! Love the new cuz. They are super cool, how nice of Dexter to pick that out just for you! Enjoy playing with it!!

Your pal,

Toffee said...

Good thing you and your momma gave those mousies a good talkin too...although I could see why the mice would want to live with you - you have so many cool toys and a pool and a lovely garden and yummy food!

Unknown said...

eeeek I hate mice! Make sure you take them far away or they will make it right back inside your house. Clever little beggars.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Ur mama got lost in the woods with Pee Wee?? UM...he didn't bring her home? Hmm...WHY NOT? that Dexter's costume for Halloween? A bumblebee??? What are you gonna be Mango? Somehow we can just see you as a ballerina!!!! Double dog dare ya!!!!

Oh...the know you keep catchin' the same mousie don't ya...put a little toenail polish on her tail...just watch and see what happens!!! ''s gettin' cold up there...ya can't expect her to hang out outside all winter, not when the estate is heated nice and warm???!!!

Barkies, Mango...


Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Hi Mango!

That's so cool that your Mom is using the trap and release method...I don't believe I've seen those traps here. Maybe we should get more of those although I'm not sure if the mice here are as tiny...Mom says they are HUGE here! o.O" I have yet to see one though,so I guess all is good?

The Cuz looks really spiffy and nice to chew on...=) Hope you had a great weekend!


Dewey Dewster said...

Oh Mango....

Let me tell ya what we would do with those mice of yers.....the same thing we'd like ta do ta our rats.....get em....Gram has us in earthdog cause terriers were bred ta go ta ground and get vermin.....mice are in that vermin family...why don't ya send 'em down ta us cause our rats are goin' back ta the earthdog club soon.....'n we need somethin ta chase.....

Dewey Dewster here....

Molly the Airedale said...

Our mom HATES mousies and she doesn't use a nice trap like your mom does! Hers looks like a big plastic clothespin!
We love our Cuz's! They're lots of fun and they make LOTS of noise and Mitch loves to play with them while mom is trying to talk with gram on the phone!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Noah the Airedale said...

Aren't cuz' just great Mango. That was very nice of Dexter to think of you. D goes nuts when we play with our cuz'.......hmmmm wonder why....

Those are very lucky mice. They get to live another day....yay.


Snowball said...

Mango, won't the mice run back to your house after being released?

I have a CUZ too. Mine is orange. It squeak real loud.



Princess Patches said...

We sure hope those mices don't find their way back to your estate! I bet the cuz is lots of fun! We have never had one...something about us Aire-girls wanting to rip off their feet.

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said... you think that dog in the potholder has EVIL INTENTIONS?


I admit I never thought of that!

Oh my...

Mango...I'll give this career change serious thought....


Niamh said...

Poor Dexter-he picks out that nice toy for you and now has to wear that mortifying contraption on his head.

Glad you are rid of the sneaky little mice.

Your friend,

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

EEEeeeekkkk!!! Mice - that's what our Mom would say about what woo have there. She thinks it is bad enough we had a snake in our yard, no mice allowed inside here.

What ever is THAT on Dex's head???

We have cuzes here too. Lots of fun - is yours a good cuz or a bad cuz?

Woos, the OP Pack

Mack said...

Wow those mice sure are lucky your momma didn't use the less humane traps!!

What does squirtino have on his head??

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

That is a very nice toy you got there...
Speaking of mice. Mom thinks there is one in her pantry. She went to make some boil-n-bag rice yesterday and all the bags had holes in them. Arg we have 2 cats they must be slacking...

Eric said...

Mango, Boy oh boy you've been busy. Getting to know the Cuz. They are kind of friendly are'nt they?Want to hang around your chops for most of the time. And so talkative too.

I like Momma catching the cutsie mouse in the cool green traps. I think he has a homing device. To your home. In the supoort of NOMS pawhaps he can hide a while in the dirtpile or make a nest under the nice new round table?
BUT what is Dexter wearing on his head?. Some kind of homing device too? Obviously not working....can't wait to see his adventures on Thursday. Or Hector's in the dirtpile.Oh and when you eat yummers Mackie fries don't you like they with some ketchup?

Wiry wags, Eric x

Agatha and Archie said...

Ask your Mom if she wants us to come and help with the mice( although PL2 says why because we are not doing such a great job here...) All our leaves turned color overnight...did that happen up there too???? Love A+A

Sophie Brador said...

Your mama should have just followed those meeces back to the house. My mama is convinced they just come back. Mind you, she's never really had woods to take the little guys to. Just a back lane. I told her she needs to drive them clear across town, but oh no. Does she ever listen?

Mango, I sure hope you love that cuz, but don't be surprised if everyone you know gets a wicked headache.


Deefor said...

Hi Mango
Maybe your mom could put a mouse in your kong and you could recycle it. But that is kind of your mom to relocate them.


Abby said...

Hi, Mango...

That's nice that your Mom is taking the mice back outside & not hurting them...

That was nice of Dexter to bring you a Cuz...Are you sure he didn't get the "hat" for you & the Cuz for himself??

Abby xxxooo

Peanut said...

Dexter might not be such a bad little guy if he brings you cuz.

Joe Stains said...

omdog YOUR FIRST CUZ?! what an event! That is a life changing day in a dog's life. omdog.

I hope those mice stay far away!

Lindsay said...

Woah, Mango! The Girl would freak out if we had mice! She says she is even more scared of mice than she is of spiders! Good on your mom to trap them humanely and then relocate them!

We're just getting caught up on our reading, FINALLY. Sorry to hear it's been raining!

Brown dog kisses,
