Awards and Estate Update

Today was another wicked pissa hot day here in Master Chew Sits so the Pee-Wee and I spent a lot of time in the pool.

I have fallen behind in sharing the nice awards that have been passed along to me.

First of all, this award from Sammie which means "proven this blog has sweetness."

I would like to pass this award along to the most sweetest gal in the whole world...
My Darling MJ!

Then I got this award from Niamh. She is putting up with a stupid pee-wee little brother just like I am.

“This award is presented to those dog bloggers out there who know the meaning of GREATNESS. Their blogs are consistently interesting, funny, or informative. Their KINDNESS is extended to others without expectation of it’s return, and their FRIENDSHIP inspires others to do EXTRAORDINARY things. These are the blogs you can’t wait to read everyday. In short, they are AWE-INSPIRING, full of wonder, and simply PAWsome!Pass this award on to 4 others who you feel exemplify a “Paw”some Blog, and leave a note saying why you think they deserve the Pawsome Award!”

I would like to pass this along to;
Miss Khyra -
Who is the original walkie movie doggie and has many great adventures in her yard and her mom totally rescues lots of orphan doggies.
Wally is just too cool for school and I can't believe what he has to put up with with those peppy sheppys he lives with. But he pulls it off with dignity.
I just can't get enough of his smoochie face.


Butchy and Snickers
Two Wire Fox Terriers who live with the evil seizure monster, but still have lots of fun.

Finally, I totally won Travis's Supa Saturday award. WOW! I am in awe of my large and supa sized self.

I haven't shown you any barn photos in a while. Needless to say, Master continues to work on it with the help of Rick and Jarrod. As you can see, the second floor is all framed in and a lot of the siding is up.

Momma was very brave and climbed the ladder to the second floor to photograph the rafters because they look so pretty.

Our barn has four gables which makes the roof line kind of complicated.

Almost a shame to put on a roof...

The Pee-Wee and I get distressed when Momma goes up the ladder. I tend to stand by the fence and howl and Pee-Wee just runs back and forth very fast. If you biggify you can see my large and sound shaping lips all puckered up for a good howl. Ow wooooo!

Gosh, even I look small from up there.

Last night one of Master's pals came over and played around in the dirt behind the barn with his little tractor. Just movin dirt from one place to another which I gather constitutes great fun for construction type guys.

Master is putting stuffs on the corners of the roof.

Whilst Jarrod and Rick have fun scrambling up and down up top. The heat has forced them to don their muscle shirts and Jarrod is wearing those knee length short pants that momma says used to be called peddle pushers, but now they are cool guy type fashion statements. Whatever.

Check out our plum tree. It has flowers!

Ha! You didn't think I would do a whole post without a nice shot of my Mango-ness, did you?

Mango Man! Oh yeah!


Allison Walton said...

Your ears look funny in that last picture, Mango!

Joe Stains said...

You do look surprisingly small from up there, maybe we should all just get a lot bigger? hm anyway, thanks for sharing the barn photos, we were wondering if construction could continue with the heat you guys had.

wally said...

ZOMD! When I saw those pictures I thought--SOMEONE SHRANK MANGO and I was worried but then you grew back to mangoriffic size. Whew!

Thank you so much for the award! I am pawsitively pleased!

Stella said...

Ah, Mango, what a sweet mama's boy you are to howl when she climbed the ladder!


Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Mango, Congrats on the Award.
That kiddie pool is too small for your royal hugeness, Mango!
Nice barn already, if you need an interior designer, feel free to call me! I'll make sure each of you famous bachelors have his own retreat quarter!
In the last pic, looks like ball got your tongue, hehe!

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

I am just in awe of you - especially in that last picture - you are my hero! But I agree - I think you need a bigger pool. Or kick your little brother out so you've got more room so you can get all wet in there! *kissey face!

Congratulations on the awards!

Your new barn look beautiful! The structure of the roof is so nice! We dun have such buildings in Singapore. Ours are mostly built with bricks and concrete.

Congrats on all the super duper awards, and uh, I don't think you look small even from the roof (which is very cool)!

Hi Mango,

You barn is looking really moving right along. Thanks for volunteering to help with my computer prob;em. Mommy found the mouse but our old e-mail address is gone but not forgotten.


The Oceanside Animals said...

Those rafters are like a work of art -- seriously!

Moco said...

That barn is coming along quite nicely. We are glad the momma did not fall off the ladder. Mango man there is something odd in your mouth in that last picture.

ocmist said...

WOW! The barn is coming along beautifully! I love the look of the boards against the sky. Your Mom was brave and so artistic to climb way up to give us a chance to see them, too!

You know, I wonder if your Dad is enjoying himself creating such a wonderful structure... he has something to be proud of already! I know it is a lot of work,but it is so rewarding to see something so wonderful and know you "made it yourself..." Yea, Mango's Dad!


NESSA the hovawart said...

Congrats on the awards Mango! You deserve them! And let me just say, although that shed of yours is truly remarkable, I'm particularly fond of the dirt area behind it. That is some awesome digging pit!

Thanks for the barn update. We were wondering how it was coming along. We're sending cooler weather and rain your way.

Martha said...

Well, thats it we are coming over right now to live in that barn! It looks amazing!
Congratulations on all your Awards - you deserve them - we think you have a very cool blog.
As for our ladylike bitey face - its Martha - she wouldnt play at all so I am teaching her. If it get too rough she wont play and wants to sit behind mum!
Still progress is being made.

Amber and Nala said...

Linda said...

Hey Mango,
Thank you so very much for the pawsome award! and congratulations on all of your awards. Wow, we can hardly believe how far the barn is coming along. It looks really cool. Papa likes building things. Too bad we don't live by you, he could help out. Those rafter angles can get pretty tricky. Looks like your Papa is doing a great job with them though. Be sure to keep everyone safe when they are climbing around up there ok??
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby
