Barn Update, Poop Mystery, and Pressies!

Master and Rick decided they needed a helper with "young legs" to work on the barn since they are tired from going up and down the ladder.

So now I have a new friend, Jarrod. He is quite nimble and as he is only 24 years old, is still made of rubber. He is not bothered by working up high (and has lovely form on the balance beam).

With Jerrod's help, the barn now has much of its first layer of skin and the second floor is coming right along.

I presented Momma with a big mystery in my poops this morning. She looked everywhere to find evidence of what I might have consumed, but I left not a trace. She says the stuff is not hard, yet firm and has no idea what it could be (hee hee). Some of the longer pieces look like they might have been hollow, but hard to tell. Any guesses?

Well, that will occupy the Dotty Old Hen for a bit, I must say.

Meanwhile, I received a most exciting pressie in the mail from Huskee and Hershey all the way in Singapore.

I instructed Momma to open it with great haste! Inside was this nice note.

Dear Mango and Dexter,
Hershey and I wanted to show our appreciation to you for organizing the incredibly fun Mango Minster 2009 and for the wonderful gifts and award! I (Huskee) loved my medal and it is being displayed proudly in our living room. We hope that you and Pee-Wee like the little "pizzas" and "muffins" that we got for you.
Your friend,
Huskee (and Hershey)

Did somebody say pizza?????

How did they manage to color coordinate the pizzas with Pee-Wee's googly yummers foodables eyes?

Holy Smokes! I am moving to Singapore if this is what they eat there! Thank you so much!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Checkers & Chess said...

i think you got ahold of some construction materials...Good job on confusing your mom!!!!! Mine's on poop watch here too!

pam said...

Mango first let me say that you are a very handsome boy. That said the last picture of you kind of scared me.

When your head is tilted back like that and your face falls back from your mouth, it looks like you could eat a turkey whole.

I hope you are not offended by this observation.

We have no idea what the poopy stuff is -- but we are happy the barn is coming along so well -- and fast!!

Peanut said...

hmm have you been eating bones? Mom said we've had bones come out looking like that a little.

Moose said...

First I thought pasta but that would probably be obvious and the long pieces look too long for tubey pasta then I thought something from the barn raising but I recall there being a fence around the new barn to prevent just that kind of thing! Such a mystery indeed! Whatever it was...at least it passed uneventfully!
As you saw from our post today TeedyNo's poo has been a lovely rainbow of colors... the rope is the worst! And Moose only eats foodables and foodable packaging so I hope he is not getting too many ideas. Definitely shield Peewee from that post!
Moose + Dana + TeddyNo the baaaad doggie
p.s. Jarrod is crazy! Good thing the whippersnappers are bouncy.

MJ's doghouse said...

wow that is sure some interesting materials..is it from that kind of wood that is all wood pieces stuck together..mom and i dont know much about wood so that is the best we can do...anyhow you behave yourself...dont eat anything that will get you sick cuz then you wont be able to eat your pizza..

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

Mango...that's so obviously pasta...it was stuffed with ricotta...and covered with parmesan and butter and stuff. Was it cooked first? Hmm...

Did you eat the sauce too?


I mean it's not like we enjoy lookin' at ur fecal refuse...



We'll make sure we take a pic of our next expulsion that's interesting....

Hugs...love...and kisses...darling....


♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

First let's say that was so very nice of Huskee and Hershey to do. You certainly deserve a lot of credit for all that hard work.

Now for the output. Could it be some sort of packing material from some of the construction stuff. It looks like some sort of hardened glue.

Hope you can find the answer, that would drive our Mom crazy.

Woos, the OP Pack

Becky said...

I don't what that stuff is, but am curious when your Mom figures it out. The barn is looking great!

Mason Dixie said...

Isn't it weird that our parents search our poo? Just gross. he he. What great treats you got in the mail. =)

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hmmm.. is this like the Mystery of the Mysterious Poop?!! We have no idea what it is, quick, tell us already... don't keep us in suspense! :)
Glad you like the treats and have shared them with Dexter!

Psst.. the barn looks fab!!

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Those thingies look like hard candy...LOL! Your barn sure looks great! It's coming along very nicely...*grins*

And the pizzas look PAWSOME!! I wonder if they have those here in Malaysia...we are just next to Singapore! *grins*


Allison Walton said...

MMM. Looks like a yummee misturee!

Gus and Waldo

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Thanks for the update on the barn! Your Master must be happy with they helping him!
I have no idea what you ate!!!
Yummy presents from Huskee and Hershey! Well deserved!
Kisses and hugs

Amber and Nala said...

Looks like that balance beam is bowing a bit....tell Mr. 24 year old to be careful! As for the poop mystery, it looks like pasta to me????


Murphy Dogg said...

Hey Mango,
It looks like you got into some nice rotini or something. Um, did your mom actually pick it out of your poo or did it come out that way? Cause, um, it looks kinda clean.

Hmm momma is a good poop sifter. Looks like you should put some sauce on it and eat it again.

Yummer singapore treats! You deserve it.

Anonymous said...

Hi Mango! It's kind of a strange thought to think that right this minute I'm joining hundreds of people around the world in trying to figure out what was in your poop this morning. I even biggified it. But I don't have a clue.

See ya!

Moco said...

Did you somehow get hold of some of those Dunkin Donuts and they turned to a solid in your intestinal tract? You should have washed them down with that box of Joe. Wait, maybe they are pieces of the box.

Stella said...

Hey, Mango!

Please note that I (and my hairy goober brother) LOVE the new header photo of you and the Dexter looking out over your estate.

Those Singaporean pizzas are looking mighty tasty. Huskee and Hershey are fab friends. We love them!

Now, about your poo. You've got us stumped, though some of those things look a little bit like hard pieces of pasta that were never chewed up. Could that be it? (Your poo mystery has us all seriously diverted here in GooberStan.)

Thanks for your compliment on my bananadana. I occassionally like to accessorize. But, I have to say that I hope you're just trying to mess with me a little bit when you make comments about hoping that I'll be kind to other pups and that I won't attack them, etc. You really need to know me better, bud. The only pup I ever attack is Stanley, and that's only if he gets me riled. I'm actually very good with other pups, especially pups who are either timid or trying to be all alpha on me. I am poised and conduct myself like the lady I am. So, please don't go saying things about me that hint at the fact that I'm some kind of screechin' harpie who can't be trusted around other pups. Okay? Ok.

Please tell the Labradude that we think his Cuz/Behemoth separation techniques are expert. He'll know what we mean.

Goobery love & tiny kissies,
Stella Bean

I hear you asked STanley if I may have had a crush on you. Don't get me wrong, you're a gorgeous hunk of Mastiff love, but my heart belongs to Taffy, and my only other crushes are on older pups (Wally & Sherman to be exact). MJ is one lucky girl to have you, though. It's pretty obvious you only have eyes for her.

Molly the Airedale said...

You got pizza in the mail?! Wow, we had no idea that it could work like that! Husky and Hershey are geniuses!
The barn is coming along nicely! Your dad will have his new workshop in no time at all!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

The mystery is totally mystery to us!

The barn is looking great, and that's a great prezzie you got, Mango!

Your Pals,
Tom and Tama-Chan

Ruby Isabella said...

It looks like you're not a fussy eater. Like me.

Princess Patches said...

We think your poopy stuffs are some sort of macaronis. Possibly uncooked! Great job on the barn! Those young leggies should make it go a lot faster!

Our Mom is drooling over your new barn - she is waiting for us to get our old barn emptied so we can build a new one - seems like it's taking a long time.

Have a fantabulous day.

Big licks to you

Deetz said...

The barn looks great! Mum said to get a pic of the 24 year olds backside and without a shirt on...thats how she can tell whether or not they are a really good construction worker or not....She is crazy! Ummm, Mango what did you eat? Candle? Bone? I sure hope it was tasty going down whatever it was....Congratulations on your package...Packages are great.

Nibbles Treats said...

Presents, pasta and poster boys! Too much for one single post!

Tinkerbell, Oscar and Tucker

Brind'Amour Clumbers said...

Hey Mango!

I'm not sure what that stuff is but then again, I'm only concerned with what goes in the front end, not with what comes out the back end. That snack sure looks yummy! Nice barn too!


Stanislaw said...

I think it's those tasty noodly pasta bits my humans like to put sauce on!

Mack said...

Having pooped this out myself, I am gonna say it's parts of undigested jerky!

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

hmmm...we are not sure what you got into there Mango! but it sure makes excellent terd talk! our mom is a terd expert. she analysis poop for a living. she says she is the number 1 girl in the number 2 business. maybe you should send it to her----or maybe not

Martha said...

Hi Mango
What a great surprise present you got - we hope you enjoy eating the treats and share them!
We think it is best not to dwell on poops - what is eaten is eaten!
Your barn is coming on very well and we are glad that Jerrod is there to help.
Our Dad, who is no spring chicken, built our conservatory all by himself!! He has had a sore back ever since and that was about 7 years ago! Always good to enlist the help of a younger man, especially one made of rubber.....

The Black and Tans. said...

Hi Mango

Firstly we must say we think your barn is looking positively spiffing. How much longer before it is finished do you think?

Have to say you have us quite stumped as to the package that came out of you derriere. Bet your eyes watered!!!!!

Molly and Taffy

Joe Stains said...

Glad your master got some good young help over there to get that barn done! It will be snowing there soon again right?? ;)

Great pressies from Huskee and Hershey, they are so rad!
