Mental Stimulations

I am not sure what is going on with the internets, but I found some more strange sounds here and here. Uh oh, I think momma just peed herself from laughing at that goat. Whoops.

Momma is always trying to think up ways to provide my large and deep thinking self with mental stimulations. She says it is important to exercise my limited problem solving skills. Huh?

Anyhoo, pee-wee and I were subjected to a most confounding doggie "toy." She even made a movie of this hopefully not to be repeated exercise. I mean, why should I have to work for my foodables? (click here for wide screen version - I do not think I can embed my movies anymore cause blogger cuts off the edges).

Nonsense! Here is the proper way to deliver yummers to the Mango.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. I noticed that one of my movies had received very many viewings and found it linked here. You need to scroll to the bottom to see my movie. Can any doggie tell me what they are saying about the Mango? I hope it is nice things.


Stella said...

A little Spanish action going on at the movie place and I am clueless. My Mom goes to Babelfish for this kind of thing, but mostly she winds up laughing at what they say!

Ah, that workin' for the foodables thing, I hope my Mom won't spring for one of those, who needs it?

I love using my thinker! Especially when it results in foods.

Mango you are amazing. Who really cares what they are saying we know you are the greatest!!

Moose said...

I only understand every 40th word when it comes to spanish but I think they are saying you would not be a good guard dog! I think they are saying that the games you are playing (agilities) are very hard and something is unthinkable!
Speaking of unthinkable... working for food? Sorry to hear it mango man, I guess times are hard all over. We wanted to try one of those toys for Mooses but when he can't figure something out he carries it to his bed and resorts to brute force so I thought it would be pretty expensive fire wood!maybe we will give it a try now that you have shown us how it is done.

P.S. Can't wait to see a good translation of that forum post... I am sure I am way off!

Gee Mango

That looks like way to much work to get food. Tell your mom to take it back, and spend the refund on dog treats.

Pee-Ess- New Braintree is nowhere near old Braintree. No Jordan's Furniture here, just lots of cows and trees.


Land of Lincoln Labbies said...

Mango you are so cool being a movie star and all. Our Mom thinks your header picture is wonderful with your big, sweet smooshy face. You are absolutely huggable even with the slobbers. We are sorry you and Dexter had to work to get your yummies. Our mom thinks this is a great trick to make us do to, but we are never amused!

Unknown said...

Hey mango
Keep those videos coming... last night and today's were giggly good. Mom sent to facebook..

Hmm puzzles. I saw momma cued you a lil bit. I agree direct hand to mouth is still the best. I think Mom needs a puzzling pupcake recipe to figure out for you. ONly fair right?

we only speak english and a some sign language.. can't help you.

Good work R. H.

Golden Samantha said...

My mom thinks this is a great idea, but I'd rather use my brain to get food hand to mouth - and Mango - you are a hunky movie stud! Great job on all the hard work you are doing!
Licks and Kisses,
with xo to Peewee,

Golden Samantha said...

Now that I saw your amazing movie, I had to add commentary on that! Mango, you are indeed amazing. I wish I had half the grace and flexibility and smarts that you have - the hoop trick is pawsome! I have no idea what has been said by commentators, but I'm sure it's all good - I like the smilie faces - that's gotta be good, right?
Hugs xo,

MJ's doghouse said...

oh my mango..that foodables game is dumb..i would just crunch down on teh cantainer until it broke and the food came out...i dont have time for silly human games...besides i am too smart for my own good anyhow...(that is what dad says...)

Brandon, Ashley, and baby Stella said...

I agree with you Mango. Mastiffs + stairs = BIG TROUBLE!!! Mommy just wouldn't take no for an answer! Just wait until I weigh more than her...I'll teach her to make me go down stairs!!! HA HA!

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Oh my...I have to stop Mom's giggling before she could help me type this! LOL! You are such a fun dog, Mango! I have no idea what the people at the other website are saying though...=(

Hope you had a great day!


mezmerelda said...

Oh my. What funny, funny sounds.

Sophie Brador said...

My mom just leaked all over the place. She watched that video twice and laughed so hard her bum fell off. Well, okay, not really. She wishes!

I have no idea what they are saying about you, Mango, but I bet they are saying, hey, that dog is relentlessy huge!


Sami & Baylee said...

I just love movies of you Mango! Your such a handsome STAR! Can I have your autograph?

xoxoxo Baylee

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
That toy looks pawesome but I am sure I would not be able to get the treats! You two are very smart!
IE and Firefox don't let me see that link! If it is in spanish I'd love to tell you what are saying about you!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Mango - wow, I love your new toy...I want one too! (although I don't think I would have a clue what to do with it!)

And wow - your tricks! I'm so impressed! Why didn't you show this video for Gus & Waldo's Tricks Contest? You would have won for sure! I've never tried jumping through a hoop - and I really struggle to do the rollover. You must be heavier than me so I'm so impressed! (am 70kg - what are you?) I must learn that jumping up and touching your human's hand trick - so cool!

Honey the Great Dane
ps. my human says she really likes your human because she is also always trying to think up things to stimlate my tiny brain...or new places or experiences she can take me to!

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Hi Mango,

I don't like playing games with my food. Just give it to me and I'll take care of the rest.

Mommy was upset too about Dasy.
I hope your Mommy will sign the petition.


Nancy at the Farm said...

Mango, put your mother on please. Thank you.

Where did you get the toy? I am thinking it might be good for Dozer. I know they are expensive but would appreciate your thoughts.

We now return you to your normal channel, MangoVision

Our mom makes us work for our foodables too.. this is oooo wrong!! (wait.. she also makes us work for new squeaky toys... someone call SPCA!!)

Bae Bae said...

Oh your new toy looks cool and fun

The Black and Tans. said...

Mango I have one of those Nina Ottosson toys as well. I can collect the treats in 35.6 seconds!The toy may not necessarily still be in the same room by the time I have finished clearing the treats but it is good fun.

For further enjoyment try picking it up and and dropping it on the hooman's foot. Immensely entertaining!

Molly :-)

Molly the Airedale said...

What a neat toy! We're so impressed that it gives out edible rewards!
Who would say anything not nice about you, Mango? You're so smart and handsome!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Suzuki said...

Mango the Movie Star Oh Yeah BOL
Big licks to you

Martha said...

Hi Mango
We have seen that toy. We think it is a shocking amount of work for a little treat!
We can see it would amuse the humans to think we were exercising our minds!!!!
Mango we feel for you.............
Having said that you always look good in your movies.
We suggest you get your mom out there weaving..................

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

we loved the video--we think your mom helped you a bit too much though....HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! we were afraid you were going to swallow the entire toy...

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

we just watched the 2nd video and we can't believe the tricks you do!! we can not do ANY tricks AT ALL,especially the hoop!!!!! :-O
we loved the comentator in the background..."such grace" BAAA HA HA HA!!!!! and drinking out of the hose was too much, by that point we could hardly watch. might as well just park the hose right down your throat. we don't know what the comments said, but we sure enjoyed it!!!

Lois Lane/Laney said...

I like my Kong, but yeah I agree. Just give me the treat.

Brind'Amour Clumbers said...

Oh Mango, I love your new toy. I love food games! Heck, I love food! My big schnoz would search out those itty bitty food particles in no time!


Nibbles Treats said...

Dude - during these hard economic times, we all have to do our part. Working for your food has become the norm. Nice tricks!

Tinkerbell, Oscar and Tucker

Tee said...

The Chief makes us work for our treats too! Sometimes really hard ...

Great tricks!

Amber and Nala said...

Oh dear, I think my Mom has peed herself laughing at the goat too! As for the food hiding contraption, I told Mom to look away because I do not want her getting any ideas. ;)


Mason Dixie said...

Is there a way to destroy it? looks like it takes too long for me. he he

Daisy Dog said...

No do not work for foodables! That is just wrong!

Mack said...

Does this toy make doggies smarter? If so I need to hurry up and order one for Paris!

I let Lilly look at the comments and she said they mostly were "Give all your money to Lilliana Fuentes and send her your credit cards ASAP" She is such a toot sometimes.

Joe Stains said...

I don't understand why the hand jsut didnt give you the treats. I would say it was a most unhelpful hand. Who is this kevin macleod that does all your musicable? related to Gavin?

Anonymous said...

Mango, Mommy and Daddy both were laughing so hard at the red pit and the goat! I think you are at a disadvantage for that game. Mommy was going to get it for me cause my friends across the street had it. But I solved theirs so fast Mom decided not to bother! BOL- Have you tried a tug-a-jug? I LOVE that!

Niamh said...

I've played that game and it is a lot of fun! Maybe you can bypass the game and just wolf down a whole bag of treats.

Your friend,

Behr Behr said...

Hey Mango, my man, you got one of the cool puzzle things too!! Just think of it as a doggie slot machine. I used to think mine was a lot of work at first. When I figured it out and thought they were all done playing games with my food, they went and got ANOTHER one! Actually, the new one (Tornado) is my favorite. Sometimes I think the humans lay awake at night dreaming of new ways to make it hard for us to get food. I've noticed they don't do any tricks for theirs. Hmmm. Maybe you should make weird goat sounds and distract them and then snatch the snack bag. Much easier.

That goat was SOOOOOOO funny!!!

Oh,Mango, we are in trouble now, we made the mistake of letting the Momster watch that stupid goat and yes, she just about peed her pants too. BUT she also got a look at that video and now she says she just HAS to get a dog brick for us too. HELP!!!

Woe is us, the OP Pack

Am I the only one who thinks this would be a FUN thing?? I'm gonna ask for it for my birdday present!

Hugs, Biggie.

P.S. My Momma's back just went out on her this morning too (I'm confused, she is still here, so how can her back go anywhere without her), but it doesn't seem bad enough for her to stay home. Bummer.
