DWB News, Constructions, the Mall, and Something Disturbing

I have good news and bad news about my DWB pals.

I was sad to hear that Jasmine's herd mate, Primrose crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Herds are most important to goats, like Miss Jasmine, and she will miss her good friend. Goodbye, Miss Rose.

In happier news, Miss Snickers has gotten a reprieve and is back home with Butchy. So let's keep our good vibes headed her way. Please visit her blog to read about a special concentrated moment to send your good thoughts.

Jarrod and Mickey showed up to work on my new front porch again today. As usual, Master was doling out the assignments for the day.

I could hear that Jarrod grumbling right through the walls of my dog cave.

My spy cameras made a movie of Jarrod and Mickey at work and in the end you can see what the porch looks like so far.

Momma took the day off from work to go to the mall with Grandma.

Now mind you, neither my momma nor my Grandma are real mall gals and they need to go together lest they get confused. Even so, there are some most odd things there I must say.

Lash bar? Huh? Aren't lashes what pirates give you when you are bad?

"Afford ye self of the lash bar, matey, and take whats commin to ya. Arrrrr."

This handbag is in a locked case. Grandma told Momma to stop taking photos because the security people were all watching. So Momma said really loudly, "What, you think they've never seen anybody casing the joint before?" Hehehe.

I sure hope momma didn't buy one of these sweaters. I would hate for her to walk around with her ba-booms all hanging out.

Ah, at last a store they could understand. Momma practically has that Lands End catalog memorized. I hear that both momma and Grandma left many dollars in there.

Big excitements at the Lands End store too! A lady was trying on a zip front sweatshirt and she got trapped inside of it! First the sales people tried to get her out, but they couldn't, so they called... SECURITY! Huh? A gigantic security guy came and grabbed it and gave it a good tug and liberated her. OMG! She could have been totally trapped in that sweatshirt forever. Too bad momma didn't take a movie of that one.

Meanwhile, back at the estate, a most disturbing thing is taking place.

Is it my imagination or is PeeWee starting to look.....


Mango Man! Oh yeah!

My momma doesn't go to the mall, either, but my sisters go many times. They are so confusing. They go to a store called Charlotte Russe, but Momma makes a dessert called Charlotte Russe. So is that a store in which people eat? And what is it with those girls and their shoes? Momma steals their shoes when they leave them in the family room too long. I don't think that shoes look like a good snack. I do not understand the Mall Thing. My Patrick brother is mulching leaves today. I understand that. I hope Pee Wee stops being a cone head soon!

Sam said...

LOL! I think those mannequins are missing some clothing. A tank-top would go well underneath the sweaters.

I hate the mall. I need to go soon to buy a new winter coat. Dogs are so lucky, you wear the same thing all the time..

At least they didn't take Hekhtor with them this time -


That is SKHARY: he is starting to take on the appearance of THE BEASTIE -


Nancy at the Farm said...

We don't know what scared us most, the mannequins or THE BEAST and Dexter looking like THE BEAST!!! You need to put a rating on your blog entries so we can be better prepared for when THE BEAST appears.

Love, Dozer, Dottie and Cooper

Hee! Hee! We LOVED reading about your humans' mall excusion...I think you should tell us about their outings more often!! :-)

Mango, I truly relate to Momma's mall woes. That purse scares me, but not as much as the ba-boom sweaters. P.S. your porch appears to be coming along handsomely!

Malls are okay if you watch out for the headless humans

Clive said...

Big Sis here would love the malls but the not-so-little man was very taken with Dexter's 'Beast' impression!

take care

Oreo said...

Hey MAngo
My mom doesnt go to the mall much either, says she has NO money!! due to the economy~~She has to watch her $$.

The ba-boom sweaters arent as scary as those headless women. What did they loose their heads or what??? I think I would run if I saw those girls.

The porch seems to be comin..along.


The Thundering Herd said...

We really would have liked to have seen a video of the great sweatshirt rescue.

The Army of Four said...

That mall thing looks confusing. That must be why our mom shops on line. Besides, that way we can be RIGHT with her, to help her out!
Tail wags,

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Poor Jarrod - he really does get the worst of the tasks, doesn't he? But that porch is really coming along - it is going to be very nice when it is done.

Poor Pee Wee, what is his problem?

Woos, the OP Pack

the magic sleigh said...

Wooos! That mall thingy looks almost as scary as that Labra-dude.....I think Mom would look awfully funny with those sweaters without her head.. I wonder which people would notice the headless part or the ba-boomy part...he, he...

I never go to the mall!! I don't like it there. It smalls funny to me and I get a headache.
Thanks for your visit and saying you liked how I looked in the picture of Past Family. I had not seen that picture in 20 or more years. I wisk I had that much hair on my head now as I did than. At the rate I am going I will be as bald as Tom in 15 or 20 years.

I think we might have a little issue here, Mango...I did mention to Butchy last week before Snickers became ill that I needed just a teensy bit of Clacie DNA for the Grandpa Angus that Mama Lamb is hatching for ya...

I think Butcho got the message mixed up and he sent the Clacie DNA to your vettie...which woulda been bout the time of Peewee's tutoring???!!!

Oh, this is fabulous...I couldn't have done it better if I had plotted it myself....


The resemblance is uncanny....

Imagine what our kids coulda looked like?

On an other note, did the secure people at the mall want to give ur momma a tour of the paddy wagon? Did she have Hector there with her? He probably woulda bitten them and made things worse...

Bark along with us at 6pm tomorrow night...make that 6:01...we gotta be quiet for the first minute...

Kisses, Darling...


Does Peewee show any propensity for the color purple?????????

Ziggy Stardust said...

I think your estate will look very nice. When will they be starting on the "Mango Wing"? My Mommy likes to shop at that store that your Momma shops at, I am glad she never got stuck in a sweater. I am so glad that Snickers is back home, I am hoping so hard that Snickers gets better.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Sally Ann and Andy said...

I love shopping at Petsmart with my Mommy, and we have seen a Mango sized tennis ball to send you for Christmas, opps, did I bark that. I not sure about the mall thing, I think I would want Mommy to carry me if we went;but, perhaps, I would send Mommy to pick up things for me and big Mack.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Yes, sure Jarrod is working hard!
My mom can't remember when was the last time she went shopping to a Mall!
Dexter is becoming.... like.... Oh-no!
Be careful!
Kisses and hugs

Mango You're momma and I would be GREAT shopping mall buddies. I haven't gone to a mall in years. I had to teach a yoga class at an outdoor mall recently. that was weird. What good shots. and that purse can STAY LOCKED UP. It's FUGLY!

And who goes to a bar to get lashes? I don't know about you but i go to bars to drink alcohol or get sushi. You sure it wasn't Tokyo sushi bar?

And I'm sure glad you're monitoring the Estate construction. It's important to document instructions in case anyone needs to fix their mistakes at no cost! make sure you take plenty of notes.

Oh, it's THAT kind of lash! Phew......

Have a good weekend, guys.

Molly the Airedale said...

OMG, the hoomans sure have no sense when it comes to sweaters! Aren't they supposed to keep you warm? Geez!
The porch is looking great, Mango! I bet you can't wait for the steps, huh?
Stop by our blog when you get a chance. You guys are winners!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Some disturbing news today - we hope things at the estate are back to "normal" soon.

Woh... I think this post should be rated X. for Boobies and... Beasties.

tula monstah said...

Hey Mango - you're in the spy club too?!! Pee wee was spied on this week- i think that blue tarpy thing was following him. i don't unless it's a new training technique.

good day for the mango cave!
toodles, tula

Gus said...

Mango Man...that Land's End place delivers. A lot of the time, they deliver here. It saves the muzzer from the terrors of the Pawking Lot! She doesn't mind the mall, but Pawking Lots drive her crazy. She needs a Pawking Less Mall...oh yea, the puter?


koko said...

Hi Mango,

I see the noisy work is coming along well at the estate... we have a boutique in the local mall called Mango Outlet, selling sweaters and stuff... each time we pass, it reminds me of your relentlessly huge self.

Be very careful of the transforming cone-head monster.

Licks, hero

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said... is Peewee this morning?? Is the transformation going well? Has he adopted a wiry grizzle look to his fur and a propensity for shrieking the the dishwasher??? Or the fur dryer?

Some of these changes will be immediate, others could take a while to develop, and when you LEAST expect it...


On that pawsitive note;


Pee ess...are ya up for ROTE today? Can I come with????

Heather and Pumpkin said...

You know what confuses me about shopping? I buy all my foodables and get my haircut at the same store. But when mommy goes to the supermarket she never comes back with her hair done. Isn't that strange?


Amber and Nala said...

What a day Mango! Looks like your porch is coming along even though minds keep changing. ;)


animal lover, quilt lover said...

Hi Mango, tell mama if I could go back and tell my self anything I would tell myself don't marry the first guy to come along!!!!!!!!!!!!
THe first one was bad!!!!!!!

Moose said...

That porch is most impressive! tool time buddies work fast.
From Cone monster to Lacie beast... oh dear! Hope Pee wee is back to his normal self soon!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Between the ba-booms and the Beastie, Moma about spit her soup out all over the 'pooter. You all keep us very entertained!

Hoping the transformation returns to the original form,
Jake and Fergi

The Adventures of the LLB Gang said...

BOL....Mango, they sure are turning your estate upside down lately aren't they??


Sophie Brador said...

OMD Mango, You most magnificent of beastie beasts. I fear for your safety, because Peewee is indeed looking super scary and Lacie like and he is also looking a bit excorsist like, and I know Jodie Foster lives in Petey's building and everything, but that doesn;t mean she isn't still like super scary and possessed and therefore Dexter is too, obviously. I think you need to come to Canada, where only the moose are scary,


Chef said...

I got stuck in a sweater once so I just bit it off. And those people had to call Security??? Yeesh. Sometimes people are so dumb.


ScrapsofMe said...

Hmm....a wire haired labrodork? That is plain skeeree and Howl Oh Weenie was over like 2 weeks ago! Yer momma sure had a mall-adventure, nothing exciting like pirate lashing or locked up purses or humongous security gaurds ripping sweaters off wimmen at our mallie. And those boobie sweaters are just...odd and disturbing at the same time. I wonder if it makes it easier for lactating females to feed their pups? Your porch is coming around....I felt like aroooing...Move That Tarp! for the big reveal!

Unknown said...

How do you get stuck in a sweater? Was that Jarod's girlfriend?

How long is peewee wearing that cone.. it has magical powers.

Moco said...

That was quite the day had by all.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Looks like the porch is coming along. Sure glad you are keeping a close eye on everyone Mango..
That lady really got stuck in the sweater.. Oh no..
Hey grandma MeMaw works at Landsend.
Mom gets really good discounts from there..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Joe Stains said...

I dunno what is more disturbing, shopping malls or that pic of Dexter!!

Astrid Keel said...

that is a disturbing set of mannequins... i hope that does not become a fashion!!! human bubbies are meant to be covered!

we're keeping our thoughts on miss snickers and all our furiends in need.


JulieandCaleb said...

Hahahaha, hearing the adventures of your people was quite amusing, Mango!

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

Hi Mango,

Thank you so much for saying I'm hot "blushing". Ya gotta come bye and see the kissing pictures on Shutterfly Mommy linked to that Aunt Judy took. I would have given you free kisses if you coulod have been there.

There was a mastiff recue griup their but none of them other masfiff was near as handsome as you and I didn't kiss any them either. Including myt kisses Droh made 390 dollars at the event.

Your right. Pee Wee is stating to look like the "beast"...maybe hey will hook up and you will be left alone. Can I take her place in your affections?


Oskar said...

Not only would your mom person's ba-booms be hanging out, her head would fall off!!

The mall *shudder* Not a big fan either.

Looks like the construction in making progress :)
