Monosyllabic Monday - ROTE Edition


Our kind of red tree.

Hard to turn in such a small space.

Time to ROTE! Please do not leave with my back end not in.

Make haste! The ROTE fills me with glee.

Our lawn. Green. Thanks, Rick.

Our small tree is quite red.

First stop. Car stuff.

This is dull. I sure hope things pick up.

Oh, now this is more fun.

The cops! Watch out!

Big truck! EEEEE! It will ram us for sure!

Space gal book place.

Dog book. Good choice.

At last!

Gifts for my pals.

Food for me! Yum!

Red light. Stop please.

Ghost in a tree.

Home so soon?

I will just take the Dork's good dog toy with me if you don't mind.

My rear, his front.

Nap time.

Bye for now.

Mang, Oh Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Thanks for all good thoughts for my mom on her bark day. Sheesh. That was hard to say monosyllabically (whoops).


Mack said...

Are we really first?? That is a first!
We hope your momma had the bestest barkday ever! Did you give her any sugars?

Marjie said...

You had a nice day. My alpha humans have been spending much time at the human vet. Better them than me. Was your momma's barkday Saturday, same as my momma's? Happy Barkday, Mango Momma!

Eric said...

Hi Mango. Happy belated Bark Day to your Mom! How many tennis balls can you hold in your mouth at one time? Do you spit them out one by one like some sort of auto mat ic tennis machine?

Dexter. Getting good at that place stuff pal. When I learnt that everytime Mom get the carpet square out my %4£(*&&"!kittie bro would be straight on it to sharpen his claws. Make sure Mango doesn't do the same.

Wiry wags n kisses Eric xx

I had been trying very hard to get here and it took Maggie and Mitch and you Mango to get me here....
You are a real big guy!!
That hippo cookie looked good.

Abby xxxooo

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

Yo Mango...

Scruff here...Lacie is reclining on the sofa after a most disturbing day...SHE HAD A TICK HANGIN' OFF HER HEAD...funny thing was when we looked at it under the mag no fly ing glass, it looked just like you...hmm...member that pic of the tick that bit you? I dunno...things are weird.

Saw that you had a Lakie car cookie...whoosh that was the spittin' image of Lac...

What have an Express Lane at your DMV? Our motor vehicle division was created in the prehistoric age...the word fast wasn't even invented yet...

Oh...Mumsie read that's did Christa McCauliffe live around you guys???

As for the surprise and the flashy beast...heh heh heh...

We'll be thinkin' of ya Mangoman...


Dutch the Pug said...

Mango you sure had a big day running all kinds of errands! I like to tag along for errands too and bark at all the passerbyers!

The Adventures of the LLB Gang said...

What a fun ROTE day!!


Ziggy Stardust said...

(((Happy Birthday Mango Mom)))xoxo

What a very nice adventure you had once again. The cookie looked very yummy. That first picture scared me, I thought you were some kind of alien creature from the planet of big furry noses.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Cinnamon and Mint said...

It seems it was really a fun day! Love the autumn colour pics. If I am not wrong, I think I found CUZs in your shopping trolley... :-)

Allison Walton said...

What a funny post! We like the idea for Monday, when bloggies and hoomans can be so "blah".

Happy barkday to your mommee!!

Action-packed monosyllables!!!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

geee I am sorry that I missed telling your mom Happy B=day. I have been WAY to self absorbed here.
Loved your adventure. Especially the Doggie Shopping store.
How was that cookie??? Did the PeeWee get any treats??
That was one full shopping cart. Did you get to pick everything out? I LOVE doing that. Takes me years to make up my mind.

Angel Gracie=^o.o^= said...

Wow, what a big day you had filled with lots of adventures. I noticed that you are such a biggie doggie and that your yard is nice and big, your car, your bed. Now your folks could do a little more to give you more room in that hallway by the door so you could turn around better.
Rest up for tomorrow's fun.

Maxmom said...

Geeesh Mango buddy, I nearly missed this great post of yours!! I dunno what has got into Mom, but she 'missed' the most important blogger around...hey Im sorry Im soooo late!
Anyway I loved the way you went galivanting all over the place and that near escape with the cops took the pudding!?! (But you didn't look a bit on edge - just took it in your stride as usual!) Eish we can learn from you, buddy....calm spirit (breathe!) all in control (breathe!)
(As they say...beathe in, breathe out...repeat if necessary!)
Eish but Im talking a load of C---! I'd better end. Glad you got home safely.

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

LMAO at the hippo cookie picture--i mean seriously--go look at it

Dudley said...

What a great day! I love car rides too. It's not often I get a cookie though!

the magic sleigh said...

Wooos! I am sure you had fun in your car! I think I missed a lot here lately. Happy Birthday to your Mom a little late!
Yummy looking cookie, I think it is time for a nap after all of that exhausting activity!

We're glad your Mom had a great barkday.

Achieve1dream said...

Looks like you had some fun! I wanna taste your purple hippo cookie. Did you save me any?

By the way, my blanket will fit better when I'm a grown up. They don't make foal blankets in my size and because I'm still a baby I'm really narrow, so the big horse blankets go all the way to my knees. It's so cozy warm though and keeps me dry. :)

Happy Happy Barkday to your Mama!

The Black and Tans. said...

WE would like to wish your Mum a very happy belated birthday. We can only apologise for not visiting you sooner but life is rather hectic at the moment and we don't have much time to blog. Sob!

We do hope she had a fantastic day with lots of treats. Choccies and things like that, stuff we aren't allowed. Sob ... again.

Looks like you had a great time Mango. The last stop was definitely the best..

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

Darling...did you REALLY just say I look ADORABLE??? And you sighed longingly for me??? Oh...this is a Kodak moment....(Lacie twirls and giggles...)

Mumsie just got back from the vettie with stoopid Scruffy...he um hasn't eaten since last night...projectile vomited and hit the wall, and had dye ur rear for 30 minutes straight...

Vettie thinks that Scruffy may have eaten some sanitary protection...(based on microscopic evidence of what was stuck to the wall...your momma woulda been proud of mumsie baggin' up the goodies to take with her....) Now the thing is is Baylee (Bruvver's dog) ate some feminine protection this weekend (ask ur momma if ya don't know what I'm talkin' about...) and was busy in OUR yardie this weekend gettin' rid of them...we're figurin' we mighta missed one during pick up duty and Scruffy with all of his Ultimate Recycling Ability, ate it and the feminine protection went through two bellies for the price of one...

Have you EVER heard of anything SO GROSS??? He got a shot and all other sorts of unpleasantness...

Mumsie's exhausted between my TICK and now this...wonder what Stanners will do tomorrow???

Kisses, Darling....

Your Laciegirlie

Angel Gracie=^o.o^= said...

Derby, my friend, made this fun game up. We do it in October but we call it Tockober. A tock is ones behind. Funny huh? Great game and funny photos to see.

1000 Goldens said...

Mango, that looked like a very good Rote, especially considering you got a hippo cookie out of the deal :)

Unknown said...

huh.. i thought you always were monosyllabic.. sit stay eat come dance well bubba is not. Mom is so lame.. she forgot to wish DOH a Happy Birthday!I was planning a big surprise. I had a freight of beef on it's way for a huge BBQ... oh it spilled all over the mass pike.. sorry Maybe next year.


koko said...

Hi Mango,

You had a pawsome outing there and the autumn leaves are beautiful. I can see it's wet too but you had fun nonetheless. Why is that your bed is so far from Pee Wee's? Duh, silly question...

Licks, hero

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Mango and Dexter,
We like your beds!! They are so clean!! Joker and Amanda slept in beds just like thos. I gave the bed away when Amanda died. I was not going to have another dog!! Famous last words. Bambi came next, but I was without a dog for 10 months. Long time for me.
Love you all, Bambi, Happy & Fern

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hope your mom had a wonderful, fantastic and memorable birthday!!!

Oh wow... it's so cool that you got to go shopping too!! We NEVER get to do this ever.. **envy**.

Ooh... that ghost is scary!!

Joe Stains said...

We missed the bark day as our Mom is LAZY. hmph. Your FILLED WITH GLEE look is quite easy to spot as compared to your bored face.

Sorry you had to do BORING errands, but that was one cute car cookie. Also, I saw Cuz in that cart!!

Biggie-Z said...

happy bleated birdday to MangoMomma! From your monosyllabic MOnday, you are clearly the strong, almost-silent type!

Minnie-Moo (Rescue Lab) said...

That petshop looks fun - and BIG! And the doggie cookie? Wow. Muzzle said did Dexter get high on e Numbers? Or maybe you'd not notice the difference LOL.
