Cute or Funny?

Please visit my pal Juno who has bad sickies and needs our support.

We use something called keywords here at the Mango estate to keep track of all the photos of my large and most photogenic self.

I trust momma to apply the proper words to every picture so that I can revisit my favorites.

So in an idle moment, I looked for Dexter + cute and was surprised to see 38 different pictures.

OK, the little guy can be cute at times, but 38 is a big number, right?

WRONG! Mango + cute only got 27 hits!!!! Are you kidding me? Just look at my total cuteness!

But wait! It gets worse! When I did Dexter + funny I got 59 pictures.

I tried doofus + funny and got none! What is going on here? The labradork is totally a stupid doffus all the time!

Then, to my horror, Mango + funny resulted in 96, yes folks 96, actual photos of the Mango being "funny."

Of course some of them I think actually were doofus funny photos like this one which I just happen to be in, but am absolutely not being funny.

Clearly some mistake on the photographer's part. My face never ever ever looks like this.

Anything funny about getting yummers foodables?

I thought not.

The Mango, always dignified, never silly.

I better not hear any doggies laughing!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. That cone monster is still here and I do not appreciate the various cone headed stuffies that momma has been shoving in my face. I am really confused. I've been spending a lot of time in the dog cave or on the deck working on my tan. At least momma doesn't close the door to the dog cave like the first night, but uses the furnitures to keep me in so I can look around. Momma says the good news is that she actually cleaned the dog cave as an excuse to spend more time with me.

I only see Pee-Wee now and then and I want to play with him, but momma says, "No no no!" and then she takes him on walkies and instead of bringing him back, she brings the cone monster. I don't know where Pee-Wee has been, but I miss him. I saw him for a little bit at breakfast, but he was grouchy and growled at me. Sob. How long is "a few more days?"


Deefor said...

Hi Mango
I think you should put up the picture on the card you sent me. Dexter doesn't look to dignified. BOL. I think you're one of the most dignified doggies on the web.


Asta said...

Sounds like these awe tough times at youw estate..a few days is vewy little , so hang in thewe my vewy dignified Fwiend. I do not think you awe funny at all..obviously, youw Moma made a mistake labeling photos..hoomans awe not vewy weliable in these tasks

Tank woo fur giving Juno Belle Jodhpurs a shoutout!

Woo are thinking good things fur her jodhpurs, eh?

As fur the number of hits fur woo and fur LabraDork, that is wrong!



monica said...

Aww Mango - even if we laugh a little, you ARE our absolute favourite :o) with or without shoes... hehe...

Marjie said...

Aw, Mango, I hope the cone monster leaves you soon. Many of my brothers have sickies and don't come downstairs from bed, and I miss them. Momma doesn't let me go upstairs, because she says "down stairs" is hard on a big doggie. I don't see anything wrong with the way you sleep. It looks right to me. And we Mastiffs are not funny. We are dignified, handsome, and wonderful.


Oskar said...

Mango we knew you loved the Labradork, deep in your relentlessly huge heart.

I bet if you check the picture tags for Mango + terribly handsome there would be hundreds.

Sam said...

I am sorry, but Marge and I just let out a full fledged laugh at the picture of you with shoes all over your large and sleeping self. How could you allow this to happen?

Moose said...

Funny is not so bad! I think you were robbed in terms of cute tags but to be tagged funny is not so bad! Especially since I suspect there are waaay more pictures of you than pee wee... that is the true sign of your place in the family! If you are being funny in 96 out of 8534 photos and peewee is funny in 59 out of 60 photos of him then you see how pee wee is a doofus most all of the time and that momma clearly see you as the most important doggie.

Molly the Airedale said...

We think there is room for a couple more pair of shoes on your large and handsome self, Mango!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Anonymous said...

awwweee. shucks. thanks for the shout out. Juno Belle is still in da hospeetale. but she does better there and her temp drops so i feel better when she's there.

as for the key word, yur mom is like either 1. obssessed with the labradork or 2. doing the keywurds alll wrong!

but maybe just cuz the labradude is so funny. Wild Dingo was supposed to be more about Loki since he was more dingo-like, but Juno steels more of the show because she's so silly. silly always seems to win over dignified dudes like: Mango Man! Oh Yeah!

Sunny,Scooter, (sometimes Jamie) said...

Mango. My man. You are of course most dignified. Hmmph-those humans are always making errors when they input info into the puter. *sigh* my mom makes soooo many, well, all I can say is "bless her heart"(what we say in the south that makes anything we have said before be ok-ie boy that is an ugly baby...Bless her heart)
You miss PEE WEE???????? wow. I thought he just irritated the crap out of you!!!
"You like him, you really like him" takeoff on sally fields...

The WriggleButts said...

To be honest, Mango, we believe you are both cute and funny. (And handsome. And impressingly large.) We thinks making fun pictures are a good trait in a dog (and hooman).


Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Dachshund to the rescue... I just happen to know EXACTLY how Long "a few days" is.... it is FOREVER. Sorry your Hugeness butt that is just a fact. It is the same length of time as "an hour or two" FOREVER.
Loved your shoe rack shot.
I do agree that since it is YOUR blog... You should get all photo Key Word final says.
Hey, are you and the PeeWee going to join me in writing your ADOPTION stories and posting on Thanksgiving??? I am SURE that YOU will want to write a PEE S to Dexter's story. I hope you will hop on board. I would love to read what you guys have to say.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Mango Mom does love you. She takes lots of great pictures of you too..
So you miss the little Dork?
Oh as for Queen Been mom thinks she is really Queen blank-itch..

Big Sloppy Kisses

The Thundering Herd said...

Wait a minute. You admit to missing Dex? Did we really catch that?

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Things will get better. Just wait, try napping for a bit.

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

Um...SHE USED YOU FOR A SHOERACK? What an honor for you are like the most important thing on earth...and you were chosen to hold them...naaaaa...that pic wasn't was totally impressive...

Look up Mango + impressive and see how many ya get...actually look up beast and see how many I GET...inquiring Lakies wanna know!!!

Now, stop sobbing about me if you had been tutored, I don't think you'd wanna play with you either...

Why don't you set up a nice game of Solitaire on the puter...put that RH brainie of yours to work...

Then, after some meditation you can watch the Steelers in Monday Night Footieball tonight...that's what we'll be doin' if Mumsie ever gets the stoopid groceries unpacked...

Kisses, Darling...Lacie

Ya know, Mango, you're always welcome to come and stay with us for a while...take a break from Conehead....

Achieve1dream said...

Poor Mango. Sorry you're missing Dexter. Don't worry, a few more days goes by quicker than you'd think.

I still really like the one with you and your tongue toy. I wasn't laughing though, nope, just snickering is all.

BRUTUS said...

Mr. Mango-

You know with fame, comes misunderstanding. Just ask someone like Roger Clemens.... Anyways, we think it's just the whole conehead monster thing getting you down, the whole world will look better soon :)

Peanut said...

Ah mango we hope Pee-wee comes back soon.

doyle and mollie said...

oh mate you really are having a tough time... chin up or should that be jowl up?

the magic sleigh said...

Wooos Mango, things must be bad if you are missing the little dork. Do not worry about them tag thingys, Mom says she has gotten some pretty weird ones before and they do not mean much, after all it Is your Blog! It says so at the top!

A few more days will be here before you know it, we hope.

1000 Goldens said...

Mango, I firmly believe that funny is better than cute, so be proud of your 96 :) I loooove the one of you and Dexter bouncing together in the yard!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Did you try searching for Dexter and smart or Mango and marvelous?

We just knew you really do love your Pee Wee. Too bad a few more days is really a few more days.

woos, the OP Pack

Pee Ess, be sure to have your Mom delete this post before Dexter sees how you really feel:)

Golden Samantha said...

Oh Mango... so sorry the Dex is outta sight these days, but he'd probably freak you out. I also think funny is better than cute and love all those pix you posted. BTW, how's that tan coming along?
Hugs xo

Two French Bulldogs said...

ya have to admit he is pretty cute...feel better Juno

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
I had a good laugh with all those pictures!
Did they say for how long Dexter has to wear the cone?? Time flies but sure I want you to be relaxed!
Kisses and hugs

Niamh said...

Your keyword search seems very confused Mango. And your momma seems to be the funny one, putting shoes all over you while you rest your relentlessly huge self. I hope Dexter comes back soon so that you don't have to deal with monsters anymore.

Your friend,

Moco said...

You are truly dignified. What is your momma thinking. She needs one of those books that give her the right words for pictures. Not those made up ones like funny.

brooke said...

Oh Mango, what funny pictures. Funny in the most handsome way possible of course. :)

The Army of Four said...

Mango, I would never laugh at that darling picture of you and the shoes. After all, during one of my um... false pregnancies... I gave birth to a litter of New Balances. They were darling. And they liked to run, just like me!!!
Tail wags,

Gus said...

Mango Man...the problem with Keywords (in earlier years of muzzer's life also known as Keywords in Context) is that the keyworder is not always 100% the best judge of what is Key. It is sort of like putting things where you know you will remember them, and then forgetting where you will remember.

Does that make senes? Prolly not.
Muzzer logic at work.

Anyway, we are sure those are all Mango postings and pictures, and it is a Hooman Error.


Nancy at the Farm said...

Your lip action makes Elvis look like a beginner...plastic surgery is not always such a bad thing! BOL!

koko said...

Hi Mango,

Those are some really FUNNY pictures... I bet this comment would add to the search engine tally on Mango + funny, BOL... The cone-head monster should be gone soon and you get to play with Pee Wee again.

Licks, hero

Unknown said...


You were just using the wrong keywords. Try these:





See? THOUSANDS of photos to chose from!

Your pal,


Stella said...

Mango, Mango . . .I think I heard you say you were missing Peewee. See you really do love the little guy, I know you do.

You are such a sweet guy, Mango.


Oreo said...

Funny is good and not always bad!! Funny means you are making someone happy and putting smiles on their faces, Now not everyone can do that, only special doggies. You can out a smile on all our faces pretty easy.

BTW nice show shot there BOL

Lots of smiles

Ziggy Stardust said...

I don't know how long that is, but I remember when Oliver peewee junior was here and you seemed to think that was a long time. I hope "a few days more" is not as long as that. Good luck. That picture of you and Peewee growling at each other is like National Geographic scary to me.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Ziggy Stardust said...

oops sorry
p.s. Did you try Mango and handsome together, I bet there would be so many the computer would explode.

Love the last picture!!!

pam said...

Oh Mango Man you must be kind to the conehead. Yer PeeWee will be back soon.

Bobo and Meja

Cinnamon and Mint said...

Putting keywords to every picture? What a great idea! But, I am so lazy that I don't know when I will actually start doing it.

What's wrong about being funny? Being funny is an important characteristic to be a popular man. So, it has been proved that you are the most popular!!

Don't worry about Dexter. He will be back soon.

Maxmom said...

Hey Mango dude
Im sorry to hear that things are still confusing in your household.
So the saying; "Out of sight = Out of mind!" doesn't hold true with your precious Pee-Wee. That is a true indication of love and devotion to the extreme! I must tell my pack the news..."Mango-Peewee are a united team"

Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Hi There, I'm Sugar ... Just found your blog n making new friends.
FUNNY it is!!! Love your photos. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

it is so confusing for you isn't it Mango. we wish we could have seen all the hundred of pics especially Dexter-cute. but that would be a long post indeed!

Mack said...

We went over to wish Juno a speedy recovery from the sickies. Thanks for letting us know!
PeeS: That is a very scary face Dex is making

Clive said...

Mango, how could anyone put shoes on top of you!!

Dexter will be back soon we're sure - happy to know you care, we think!!

take care

Anonymous said...

LOL awesome pics, must say the one with all the shoes on you really was too funny. Hope the cone monster will be gone soon!

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

I sure Dexter will be back soon. Really.
I think you should take matters into your own hands and change some of the key words yourself.
~lickies, Ludo

Martha said...

Mango, we would never laugh at your magnificent self being used as a shoe rack!
Really your humans are taking liberties with your good nature.
We agree that Dexter looks cute in his pics but remember Mango you look Majestic!
Now Dexter will never pull that off so let him have the cute.
love and kisses

Hi Mango,
That picture of you and Dexter in a heated battle is very scary!!!
I did not learn to sew overnight, I am stilling learning. I love fabric so mush I can't stay away from it too long. This blogging has taken over my sewing for now tho.
Have a very good day, Bambi and Fern

Unknown said...

Hey Mango - I really think your human should start putting cookies and other yummies in the cone, not stuffies. Humans think we dogs can generalise but a stuffie with a cone on the head does not look like Dexter with cone on the head (and both look weird!) whereas we just want simple associations - like:
"Cone = treats = GOOD, not scary!" OR
"Cone Monster = EXTRA yummy treats = GOOD, not scary"

Anyway, hope the "few more days" end quickly!

Honey the Great Dane

Unknown said...

Or bring the cone out when at dinner time so you only get to eat your dinner with the cone there next to you - you will be hungry enough to ignore it and the good feelings you get when eating your dinner will be sublimally associated with the cone.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Mango a dogo is part mastiff. We can see why you are in love..

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

Don't count the number of pictures taken of you and the others. Your mom must have a lot to do at your place keeping up with all. Then having to put words to the photos. She is doing her best.
I must say one thing about the one photo of . . . well . . . your teeth were showing . . . you said under the photo that your face doesn't looks like that. Well, I hate to tell you that look must have been on your face because the camera found it. It isn't a bad look . . shows that one shouldn't ever mess with you. You could mean business.

The Adventures of the LLB Gang said...

Hang in there Mango!! You'll be back making fun of Dexter before you know it!


Eric said...

Well life totally POOPS at the estate What with the cone head monsters. Poor Mango. Poor Dexter. Hope he's banished to the bin soon. Hang in there buddies. And be grateful Mmo hasn't labelled either of your photos Funny Peculiar. Sheese.

Wiry loves and kisses Eric xxx

wally said...


I'm sure if you looked for Mango + Hot, Mango + Handsome, or Mango + Genius you would get HUNDREDS of hits. No worries, my slobbery friend.

Now, how are we going to convince that cone monster to BEAT IT!

wally t.

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

I wonder what kind of photos would turn up if I searched for Scottie + funny...will have to try that someday! *grins*

Cone monster sounds weird..I don't like the sound of it at all. Hope it goes away soon!


Biggie-Z said...

Maybe make the cone into one of those foodable toys where you have to move the cone to get the yummers hidden underneath?

Astrid Keel said...

Mango, the cone monster sounds like a variant of your mommy impostor on the other side of the fence!

ocmist said...

You, my dear friend really aren't "cute"... you are to dignified... and Magestic... and Awesome... and Handsome!!! You got a big AWWWWwww out of Mom when she found our that you are missing PeeWee... Add SOFTY to the above list! OC

PS. Mom's been trying to get a mailing tube to get that pic out to you. Hopefully soon!
