True Colors - Yellow (kind of)

I WON THE AWESOME BLOG OF THE MONTH AWARD ON DWB! Hooray for me and thanks to all my pals who voted for me. It is a true honor.

I've been wanting to participate in True Colors Thursday for a while and so Momma finally agreed. Unfortunately, this week's color is yellow. I suppose we could have gone for the yellow snow, but I was hoping for something more creative. Sadly, we appear to be yellow deprived at the estate.

Even things that ARE yellow apparently aren't really. For example, here is Dexter with his night light on the table which is yellow (really it is), but not when viewed through the flashy thing.
There are lots of yellows in the painting over my bed in the dog cave. Does that count?

Our rechargeable yellow flash light wasn't in the barn when it burned down, so we still have that (but no way to recharge it).

At last, something that really is yellow! Its the door that Master made for the guest room.
I'm kind of embarrassed. Maybe next week we'll get a color that we actually have.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. My friend Moose reminded me that I have a yellow bee costume! Thanks buddy!

Hi Mango,

Your Daddy is very creative. Love the Yellow door. Mommy just loves the comment about about the "ballagram". Momy said the "boobiegrams" hurt amd men have no sympathy for girls.

Hi Mango
Congratulations on your Award, who better to win than you!
You tried very hard with the yellow. It is a difficult colour. The door to your guest room was very interesting!
We did wonder whether the painting was on the inside or the outside as it might keep guests awake!!!
Still there was yellow!
Well done Mango, you are a star.
love and kisses

Moose said...

Yay! Welcome to TCT! All the cool doggies are doing it! I love your bee costume. Moose's is supposed to be for a human so not as cool as yours though. Plus I can tell you are less grumbly about fashion shows than moose!
We have the same problem getting flashy things to show what color something is!
Dana + Moose!

Hmmm yellow, I don't think I have much, if any of that, and I would NOT have a bee costume laying around, Scampi might though.
Congrats on your award, you deserve it!

Gus said...

congratulations on the most totally deserve it! We think you did a good job on isn't one of the most popular colors around here, and we would be reduced to trying to get pictures of "part" of the pattern on our dishes.

Love the door! Hope your dad can get back to creative stuff soon

Mango - huge congratulations on your well-deserved award. We think you great but about that bee costume... it takes a big man to pull off wearing a bee costume. We'll leave it at that.

Randi said...

Awww Mango...some of your fur furs in your BRINDLE coat are yellow...

Dexter looks so sweet & innocent with his night light...I forget he is a wee baby yet & needs a night light...I've really robbed the cradle, haven't I?

Love & Licks,

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Congrats on your award Mango!

My prize arrived last night. Mommy almost peed her pants laughing, she said it was so cute. Cute!? Its a very prestigious award. You wouldn't laugh at an Oscar now would you? Thanks so much Mango! I love it!

See ya!

Great job on yellow, too.
I put Day Two of my post up about the package I received from you. I hope you can stop by!

Excellent job on the excellent dog blog award! You have certainly earned it! We agree that YELLOW is difficult. H-Mom is scanning the gallery for something appropriately YELLOW. You'd think we could do this color thing very easily ...

Molly the Airedale said...

We never thought about all of dad's Dewalt tools, Mango!
One week we'll have to find colors out in dad's shop! That might be fun too! Next week is violet! We think this might be that hardest color yet! Start looking!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Congrats on the Awesome Blog Award buddy, you TRULY deserve it.
I thought your yellow post was excellent. I don't do the colour meme thing because we would really suck at it!

I adore the bee costume. =)

Koobuss said...

Congratulations on the terrific award, Mango! You worked very hard and certainly earned it. Way to go!

I just posted all my yellow stuff and it turns out that we have more than I thought we would, since yellow is not one of my mom's favorite colors. I was thinking about the yellow snow thing, but I could not find any. I guess that will have to wait until next year for that one.

Your yellow stuff is nice. I especially like the bee costume. Very tasteful.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

The door to the guest room is cool -- it looks like it might lead to Narnia or The Shire or some place like that!
