ROTE and Dye Your Ears

Of course when asked if I wanted to go on the Running of the Errands yesterday I said yes!Look at the Pee-Wee! All sad that he can't go along. Hey, the ROTE is for full sized doggies only!

Boarding the Mastiff Mobile must never be done in haste. I always give careful consideration to which of my large and striped footies to place in first.

Followed by hoisting my round and muscular hiney up (usually with an assist from Momma). No foolish jumping about for the Mango.

Ready to roll!

On this particular trip, I was quite attentive to my surroundings. After all, I have been ROTE deprived for several weeks and needed to be sure we reached an appropriate destination.

Sure enough, first stop... the Doggie Store. This is a picture of the "store dog." I think perhaps Wally's sissy Ethel is moonlighting at the doggie store.

Whatever. As long as I get my car cookie. Yesterday it was a bear (or is that Behr).

Our next stop was not nearly as interesting.

Ho hum...

I guarded my 30 pound bag of kibbles whilst Momma shopped for more curtains. So this is where my special orthopedic mattress wound up. Do kibbles really need a mattress?

Home at last. Hmm... notice the stash of toys on the shelves to my right. Normally I would select one to bring into the yard with me, but I knew there were better things than a jolly ball in the doggie store bag.

Apparently so did the squirt because he was right out the door.

Check it out! A Mango sized meaty bone.

That's what I'm talkin about.

Today, when Master was ready to go to work, he asked me to go out, but I was too busy meditating. Sometime during the afternoon, I started to feel funny and when Momma got home she said I had the Dye Your Ears in the kitchen and the living room (maybe too much meaty bone).

But she said, "When a Mastiff gets Dye Your Ears its something SPECIAL!" So that's a good thing, right? But to be honest, I still feel a bit woogy. Clearly, the Mango is a sensitive chap with a most delicate digestive. Think I better lie down a bit.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Mom always pushes most of the marrow out of our bones before she gives them to us for this reason! Geez, that's the best part!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Pei In The Life said...

Wow, sounds like you have all the fun Mango. Hope you're feeling better. Did you Dye Dexter's ears too?

Snowball said...

LOL Mango, you got me wondering what Dye Your Ear is all about before I finally managed to figure it out. I hope you are feeling better. I get constipation if I had too much bone.

All your car cookies look cute. I bet they must be tasty too.


Gus said...

wally said...

Oh my--it looks like Oscar Bean might be moonlighting up in Master Chew Sits! whew.

So sorry about the Dye Your Ears. We sometimes have that issue around here after eating the meaty bones, especially my sissy. This weekend we had marrow bones and someone said I might have had some gas emissions. Whatever. I say she who smelt it, dealt it!

Lady Kaos said...

I wish we had a cool doggie store like that here in my town! Mom says she wouldn't use the word "special" to describe Mastiff Dye Your Ears. She says Lab is bad enough. Mom thinks my catbrother is special though so don't worry about what she thinks.
