A Present

My friend, Minnie-Moo, sent me a pressie from way across the big pee a few weeks back.

Sadly, part of the contents did not make it through customs.

Fear not! She graciously sent a replacement of the most curious product known as the Humunga Tongue!

I instructed momma to place said product in my large and eager jaws to which she obliged (note small annoying black snooter at the bottom of the photo - trouble).

I was sure that it was secure, but sometimes the Mango accidentally lets things fall out of his mouth unbeknownst to himself.

Thus was the case today and once I reached the bottom on the stairs I realized my mouth felt strangely empty...

Drat! The Pee-Wee has my Humunga Tongue!

Come back here with that! It belongs to the Mango!

Look at him all prancing around and proud of himself.

Such disrespect is difficult to bear.

Oh thank you, momma! I was quite fatigued from chasing the labradork about the yard.

And still he persists...
Circling in to rob me of my treasure.

Even when MY pressie is most firmly in my large and not letting go this time jaws he continues looking for an opportunity to rob me.

It is enough to make one ever so slightly cracker dog!

I made a movie to show you what I have to put up with.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Hey there Mango dude
I thought 'wagging tongues' was something totally different. Look mate, you have to admit that Pee-WEe has become hugely stealthful! Perhaps you are just slowing down! much slower can you get?

the magic sleigh said...

Wooos Mango! I understand your pain, as I have a pee wee of my own... I am glad you go your toy back through Mom, now you have to be vigilant, or he will come steal it again.

Hey Mango,

We can not believe the abuse you receive from the labradork!!

That was a great video, Mango. And yes, the RH deserves to have his Humunga Tongue. But we are quite taken with your gentle ways of getting it back. Minnie Moo may just have to send you another of those toys for Dexter.

You poor poor Mango to have to put up with the Pee Wee robbin you.

And I have to say not even Bobo's tongue is That long!


Gus said...

Mango Man...looks like a fun toy. We hope Dexter learns some respect soon.


BRUTUS said...

Maybe you could use the tongue against Pee-Wee. Let him get close enough to almost steal it, then thwack him upside the head with it! Maybe that'll teach your labradork to stop messing with you!

I think woo need to learn to levitate!

PeeEssWoo: Your tongue has me sooooo hot - now I know what my pantyloons do to woo!

Agatha and Archie said...

Now THAT is a cool toy!! You should be on the Patriots with a smooth tackle like that.....Unfortuantly that sort of toy stealing is a daily event in our house.....Love A+A

Achieve1dream said...

OMD!!!! In that last picture it looks like it's really your tongue! You need to carry it around like that in town LOL! Love it!

Minnie-Moo (Rescue Lab) said...

Hooray! We are so glad this one actually arrived (and still wondering if someone in customs is wandering around with a funny rubber tongue LOL).

Really pleased that you like your toy :-)

Muzzle says Dexter is a typical wonderful Labrador with that cheeky grin and proud posing with someone else's toy. She says we are all so lovely that we get away with it, he-he!



Sophie Brador said...

Mango, That tongue looks almost as big as mine when I am super pooped out and in need of a drink.

I'm so glad you could hear my voice. I am alto when I want something. Could you hear me saying, bring me the Mango! ?


Asta said...

Hoover said...

Hey Mango,

That tongue is very funny.

When someone isn't doing what I want them to do I sit on them. I'm thinking this approach would work very, very well for you.

I would do anything you wanted if you sat on me.

Life With Dogs said...

I really have to bite my tongue in order to leave an appropriate comment. The possibilities are endless. Mango, hang on to that thing, that's all I'm saying! The future entertainment value should be off the charts!

The WriggleButts said...

Now that labradork can sure be annoying.. Glad you got it in the end!


Stella said...

I think Hoover's suggestion is terrific. Just when you get close enough, flop down on Peewee and he will learn a lesson!


My word verification is flosp! Just flosp on him!

Clive said...

Well done Mango on getting that tongue back!

How can you not be treated with more respect??

take care

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

What a great toy Mango. You are pretty good at jacking it from Pee-Wee.

Hi Mango!

You are so funny! I'm glad you got your humunga tongue back! You two are so cute though!


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

There is something just WRONG bout that last pic...that little peewee...the Stealthmeister, huh???

Hey...guess what Mumsie did today...she wanted to see what Scruffy would do, now that all the pears have fallen from our pear tree what would happen if she threw apples under it...

Um...Scruffy looked at the apple and then up at the tree and goes like..."far out, man!!!!"...then he ate the WHOLE thing and several hours later deposited um well the digested version all over the kitchen floor...if your momma needs more samples for her poop explorations let us know...I'm sure we could share...

Barkin' at ya...


Pee ess...

was ur "tongue" waggin', Mango????

1000 Goldens said...

Mango, you are so patient to tolerate the antics of the labradork. How can your huge self enjoy your treasures under these conditions? Lucky Momma was there to help!

Duffy said...

Rule number one, if I may say so, is KEEP A HOLD ON YOUR TOYS! That is what you need to do. In my humble opinion, of course.

The Adventures of the LLB Gang said...

Hi almost looked like you were having fun playing with Dexter..I am sure I must be mistaken tho...


The Army of Four said...

Hmm. Dave's real tongue does that sideways thing every since the Tooth Fairy whomped him upside the head.
Just sayin'.
Tail wags,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!

Kisses and hugs

The Oceanside Animals said...

hello mango its dennis the vizsla dog hay wot is going on has the dog got yore tung??? ha ha ha i hav always wanted to say that ok bye

Joe Stains said...

Oh boy it must stink to have stuff just fall out of your mouth like that!! The Dexter Dude has no respect, do you sometimes feel like Rodney Dangerfield??

Unknown said...

Mango... there is nothing sneaky about you. You block the sun and the temp drops 10 degrees. Hmm...I don't know what else to say.. I'm tongue tied.

D.K. Wall said...

Your moves in the video were astounding, RH! Poor Dex almost got squashed a few times.

Chef said...

No one messes with the Mangoman's Humungathingy! Good on you, big guy. You showed the Pest who's boss. You're my hero. Mangoman, is that eyeball gunk in the last frame or did the wind blow your slobber up??

Kidding. You know I love ya!


Ziggy Stardust said...

Mango, the total disrespect. Will Peewee never learn? Mommy just wants to sit and pet you, especially your handsome head, behind your ears. We love the Mango. Mommy was catching up on a show she likes called "Dexter" so at first the tongue kind of freaked her out, but she is fine now.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Molly the Airedale said...

Younger brothers are such cramps in the butt! Can't you somehow just throw yourself on top of him and squish him and teach him a lesson he'll never forget, Mango?!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Sally Ann and Andy said...

At least your younger sibling is a boy. I have a baby sister who is so annoying sometimes. I mean all she talks about are clothes and toys.

Moose said...

Nice moves in your movie! Pee wee corners better, but your stealthy attack can not be beat! The tongue is funny but it looks about normal sized for you! Also we think you look a little cracker dog in that last photo... a guess the tongue is partly to blame but still...

Oskar said...

Will Dexter never learn?
