Tags and Ice

My friend Maverick the Pirate tagged me to choose the fifth photo from my fifth folder. Here it is...

This was taken last winter when it was very cold and Momma had the bright idea that my large and possibly prone to brain freeze head required a hoodie. I reminded her that my mastiff skull is actually 14 inches thick and no such adornments would be necessary (plus orange is so not my color).

So many of my pals have already played this game, that I am just going to say, hey, anybody who wants to play, go ahead.

I have a new game I'll call "What Were you Doing Last Year?" Go to your bloggy archives and find your post from a year ago. Here is mine. This was a very scary time for the Mango because Momma almost got duped into bringing home some fierce mutant Guinea pig instead of an actual puppy and I was forced to enlist the aid of actual Guinea pig thugs to scare her off.

I am going to tag three of my new friends, Ludo, Dennis, and Kylie to play. Where were you a year ago?

Yesterday we had the worst weather possible. Snow, then rain, then ice, leaving my Observation Deck in this condition.Plus my entire estate has ice on it that makes it impossible to have any fun at all. Even our snowman seems depressed.


Pee-wee practiced catching snowballs for a bit. You can see the snow way up in the air over his little head.

And he worked on his levitation skills (big deal).

The most fun I could come up with was eating this icicle.

Nom, nom, nom. To make matters worse, Momma and Master both went to work and left us home alone. Momma relocated the herb plants because they were deemed to be "looking for trouble" sitting on the window sills with two bored doggies in the house.

Which didn't succeed in keeping certain Squirts out of mischief. See the note that Momma left for Master? "I think pee-wee did this. Hopefully it was empty." Well, I think it was because he didn't blow up or anything.Even my beloved decapitated Santa head could not inspire me.

Usually when Momma comes home we go outside for night games, but it is still too icy, so I continue to be trapped with nothing to do. Ah, poor Mango!

Now there are many toys that are for "snoopervised playtime" only because sometime Junior gets confused and thinks that some of the toys on the estate are actually his, but I was so restless, that we got out the special toys. I got my screaming Lacie monkey.

And Pee-Wee got the cuz.
OK, this is a little fun for now...
Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Hi Mango!
I'm sorry that you are so bored. I have been pretty bored too. Does your mom know that she put those herbs by a mini dog that could easily gobble them up?! He is looking right at them! I hope Dexter doesn't blow up!

Mango Man, please be careful on that ice. How do woo makeit up and down from the deck? Furry carefully, we imagine. We have no ice, no snow, no nothing. But it was sunny out today.

That monkey looks like a lot of fun. Hope tomorrow is not so boring.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hi Mango
I really like the photo of you in with the isicle :D
Big licks to you

Molly the Airedale said...

We just love your snowman's hat, Mango!
We have the exact same thing you have - ice, ice everywhere! It's horrible, isn't it!
Tell Dexter that lighters are not acceptable toys to be chewing on! Cuz is the better choice!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Noah the Airedale said...

Well you do look like your having fun in the last photo.
We're glad Pee Wee didn't explode playing with the lighter.


Stella said...

Say, Mr. Mango the Massive Maniac for MJ!

Word on the street is that you think I'm not only INSANE but that I'm also not even a dog. I've heard many other pups compare me to Lacie too (including you). Just so you know, while I love Lacie Girl (she's a good friend to me) we are NOT the same dog. We have some tendencies that are similar, but we are each our OWN DOG!

I'm just sayin...

On the other paw, I LOVE your snowman's Kong Krown. He looks very DEVO with it on his punkin head.

You and Dexter look so cutely forlorn in the land of ice. Please be careful with those icicles of death. Seriously. They can kill.

Goobery love & tiny kissies,
Stella B(ean) Latifah

What is with the orange hat Mango?? I hope you are treading carefully on your deck. I wouldn't want you to hurt yourself on all the ice.

Your friend,

Poor Mango. We're had the same conditions at our house. We're not too bored yet because our kids have been home from school since Tuesday. We are playing with them a lot. Want to borrow one of them? They don't eat much and they smell okay. They give great hugs! Let us know soon. We can ship one overnight. They will have to be back for school on Monday though.

pam said...

We are bored too. We live in Michigan and there's snow. Eek. We moved from Florida so this is not cool. Hey Mango we have a santa head too. Maybe you're our long lost brother?

Moco said...

Sometimes you just have to make your own Mango fun, whether anyone else likes it or not.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Wow that is a really cool picture of you. Maybe mom should have chosen a different color..

Joe Stains said...

Sorry it is so cold and crappy there dude. I sure hope it gets better soon. Maybe Pee Wee was starting a fire to warm you up??

Abby said...

Hi, Mango...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
That icecle looks yummy!
I am sure you will find something interesting to do inside your house!
Maybe looooong naps!
Kisses and hugs

Miss Sophie said...

Hallo Mr Mango Man,
I have great empathy for you, it must be 'boring times for Mastiff week' or something. I don't have all that snow in my country though, which is good 'cos I'm not allowed to play & run right now. I hope the boring times are over real soon.
