Tricky T-Day FAIL

The beautiful Miss Daisy and Little Miss Pearl gave me AND PeeWee a nice award. Thank, you Miss Daisy and Pearl. Now I am supposed to pass it along to 15 pals. Wow! That is a lot of pals.

This award has made the rounds of most of my blogging friends already and momma is feeling pretty stressed right now, so we are going to say thank you again and know that we are virtually passing it along.

Speaking of stressed out momma. She is complaining a lot about something called a "big re-org" at the work place which is where they assign different pack orders. She is getting a new pack leader which makes her very sad as she really liked her old PL a lot. So forgive us if we are lax in visiting for a few days.

This morning, PeeWee made the mistake of showing interest in the giant snow ball in our yard.

Momma decided that she could teach him to jump over it. But she thought she could do that whilst I was also enjoying the yard so instead of anybody learning a new trick, we just had general mayhem, random treats, bouncing, head butts and cries of MANGO! DEXTER! from the DOH. Here are the results.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. I am wearing a special Mango holiday cape in the header photo. NOT a tree skirt! As if!

what a fun video! It looks like dexter is actually bouncing quite nicely, he's really good at it! And i love how mango keeps pawing at ball to show you he knows what you're doing

Mango Man! Is your mom a professional trainer? I mean, you guys looked totally trained at mayhem to me! She should think about quitting her day job, cuz she's pretty good at that training thing!

especially when someone threw Dex over the snowball. (or at least it looked like it)... that's some GOOD training! "Damn it dex, if you won't jump over on your own, I'm gonna MAKE you jump over!" yeah man! all she needs now is Wild Dingo's super secret training tools: a skillet, a rolling pin and a waffle iron you guys will be turning tricks in no time!
;) (insert evil laugh, booowhahahahahah!)

You guys are crazy! What a wild time in the snow. But it looks like a lot of fun. I hope your momma's work situation gets better.

Your friend,

Kisses and hugs

That video made me dizzy. I felt like we were on some strange man-go-round. And I don't care what momma says, that tree skirt makes a nice cape.

Great movie! We love your holiday cape. You look furry festive!

Sam said...

Thank you, guys... you've made me get one of my crazy ideas into my head..

If we have a heavy snow, I am SO making agility jumps out of snow this year.

Think I can make snowy tunnels and contact equipment too?

Bae Bae said...

The mayhem looks kinda fun. ;)

Maxmom said...

Hey Mango dude
You look quite smashing in your red cape...little red Mangohood?!
Tell mom that we understand that it is never easy getting a new pack leader. Our thoughts are with her! But the good news is that maybe the new set-up will perhaps be a bright new 'forever' home???!
Sending lots of love and licks

koko said...

That's some snowy fun you two had there... bouncing and all... wish we have snow over here to play in... *sigh*

Licks, hero

Life With Dogs said...

You should absolutely wear your cape when you go out to create mayhem. And on walks through the neighborhood!

Hamish Westie said...

There is no shame in failing a Tricky T-Day task. Rather, it show admirable independence of mind.

And by the way, there nothing wrong with guys wearing skirts. Or kilts, as we call them in Scotland.

Cheers! Hamish.

Kapitein Haakje said...

Sanne just watch the video over and over.
She never seend a mastiff jump like that!
i cant jump, beceause i have weak hips and legs

and did we see a little bit of agility weave?? :D

Huskee and Hershey said...

That cape looks good on you, but I really thought it was a tree skirt originally!!

Hey, so long as you have fun and your mom is dispensing treats, it is all that really matters, right?

houndstooth said...

Mango, you're a Christmas Hero, right?


Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

Congrats on the award!!

The first thing we noticed was the debonair new look of the RH in the header.

The caped crew sader. hehehe
Loved the rowsing game of Snow base ball.

the magic sleigh said...

Wooos Mango! They make you wear clothes? bummer man..... nice job playing in the snow, and even nicer job of trying to make Mom work hard. My Mom totally understands about stress, tell her to take it easy and have some of that magical Christmas spirit (or spirits as the case may be.....Mom recommends eggnog)

We loved seeing the video with you and Dexter having such fun.
You always have such cool music too.
We did think that you were a table in the header pic - thanks for clafifying that.

Hi Mango!
Your training looks like tons of fun! I hope everything goes well at your mom's work!

The Oceanside Animals said...

Those are some very festive tunes playing while Dexter tries to master giant snowball jumping!

Mack said...

Our mom knows just how your mom feels guys! She's always said 'work' is the original 4-letter word!
Anyhowl, Miss Paris Thingy says you look "magical" in your holiday cape. Don't shoot the messenger, please.

Ina in Alaska said...

Mango I knew all along you were wearing your special holiday Mango Man Cape!!! Your videos ALWAYS make me smile... I LOVE the tango style music that accompanies your antics! I wish I knew how to add music to my You Tubes!!!

Have a great day and tell your Momma all will be well soon in the Pack Leader arena!! xoxo

pam said...

Gud luck to momma.

Mango was you tryin to bully the Pee Wee when he was tryin to jump? shame shame shame

Bobo and Meja and Mommy

Kari in Alaska said...

That is quite the cape! And the slobber that got all over Dexter's muzzle is very funny :)

Golden Samantha said...

Always love you in a cape, Mango - you were terrific as Count Mangula as well, doing justice to the cape you wore for that persona. (It looks like PeeWee has some little red thing behind his ear too? What is it?) And loved the movie - always like your vids and music, but seeing you jump over the giant ball of snow is amazing. I almost watched it again.
Hugs xo

PS So sorry about your poor Ma getting a new PL. If I like a current PL, new ones are no fun and extremely stressful, especially at this time of year. Oh Dear.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Dexter you got that jumping thing down good. Mango we think you just need a little more direction...

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

We like your Mango cape - it looks great on you. And was that a new dance step you were doing in your video - you were doing a lot of hopping up and down. Poor Mom, but it's better to have a new PL than none at all. We will cross our paws that things settle down at work for her.

The Adventures of the LLB Gang said...

I think that is a SUPER MANGO Santa Cape!!!

I really liked your snowgilities!!

Good Luck MangoMama, we hope things calm down for you soon!!


Achieve1dream said...

Congrats on the award!

I liked the video. Great music. I hope Dex didn't hurt his snooter when he ran into the camera lol.


Eric said...

Hey Mango finally made my way here phew - half way down the alphabet. My round self was sniggering at you trying to order the labranards but Mango... DOH! You have the answer right THERE in your yard. Didn't you get the vibes from Dex hugging that big old snow ball? I mean you can even get Mom to fashion a few for him so he can take his pick (don't let the DOH throw them tho) and keep a couple in the deep freeze too in case of accidents.Job done Mango.

Wiry love Eric xxx

Clive said...

Great video and congrats on the award.

Hope everything works out okay for your Mom.

love and woofs

Molly the Airedale said...

Who could possibly think that was a tree skirt, Mango? You look like royalty in your Christmas cape to us!
We loved your video!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Stanislaw said...

In a state of mayhem is a wonderful place to be. I'm jealous! And you picked up the trick of snow punching so quickly!

Kasha The Dainty Great Dane said...

Oh Mango....I think that Dexter is quite the bouncing doggie in that video..too cute.

Congrats on your award and hope your mom does ok with the re-org. My mom's work has had lots of re-orgs this year (luckily not involving her).

I don't know...are you sure that wasn't a tree skirt? Either way you look quite dapper in your cape.

Unknown said...

Oh, boy! I almost had a hear attack. Every time you jumped up I was worried about Dexter's life. What if you landed on him. Splat?

Unknown said...

Question for the experts; I mean you Mango. As you know, I'm a huge fan of your videos. I was wondering if you would care if I uploaded them on my FB fan page. I'm tired of looking at myself all day long, plus, if I want to be fair, your videos will kick my videos' toosh any time of the week. So? I have about 200 fans (children and animal lovers/freaks) who would most likely log onto your youtube channel for more :)

Mango Man, YOU are our grand prize winner on our 100th post!! Mom has the address so your prize will go out soon! Congrats!!

Now, about that cape....

1000 Goldens said...

Mango, your cape is most handsome and festive! Tell your Mom we're sorry to hear about the Pack Leader reorganization and the work place. They always have to mess up a good thing, I don't know why it is. Hang in there...

Moose said...

Hey Pee Wee and RH,
I think stress must make momma's lose their minds 'cuz mine has been stressed and completely got confused about how to get treats in my mouth!
What is this snow I hear tell of? Momma says it falls from the sky like rain but it is cold like the ice cubes I get from the freezer. It sounds like a glass of ice water to me but guess it is fun to bounce around in! Maybe you could send me some because momma says we don't have any here in Florida!
Also tell your momma that when she meets the new pack leader she should roll over on her back to show her tummy.
Oh wait... my momma is saying that would be a terrible idea. I saw Oliver do it at your house so seems like a good idea to me... oh well!

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Poor Mango, poor Dexter, poor Mom,
50 comments!!!!!!!!! It would take me 5 or 6 days to answer that many comments! I am kind a glad that I don't have that many..
I do thank-you for your tho, I really do!!!!!
Bambi sends butt sniffs,
I send you two big hugs, Fern

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

Congrats on your award. So nice to have received one I am sure.
I loved the video of the snow and all. Makes me feel like I am right there with you all.
Stay warm.

Of COURSE it is the Mango Special Holiday Cape. Christmas tree skirt? I think not!

*kissey face*

Joe Stains said...

Is your brother spring loaded or what?? seriously. Looks like you had a good time even if there was that evil cold snow stuff.

tula monstah said...

who's your momma trying to fool, she's got you doing some kinduv russian/tango snow dance..

pee eses: luv the tree skirt!

jingle jingle, tula

ocmist said...

We hope that it snows around here if you can have THAT much fun in it, Mr. Mango! Gimli, Mercy & Pip

Love the cape, Mango. You look very handsome and festive in it! Dott & OC

LOVE the "jump" Dex! BG

Elizabeth said...

Dear Mango

animal lover, quilt lover said...

I for got to answer your question.
Yes they are LED lights on the tree. Doing our part to use and reuse, save, and stay home!! Save our beautiful earth!!!

BRUTUS said...

BOL!! THe best part of the video is the last second where PeeWee jumps SIDEWAYS over the snow boulder! We must say Mango, you are looking particularly energetic out there! Perhaps if you wore your special Mango-Cape you could fly over that boulder too (and don't let the momma fool you - it IS a tree skirt...).

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

oh a cape, sure it is....
Please pass on to Dexter that I thought he looked very agile and athletic jumping that snowball.
Also, you did pretty well putting your paw on it. At least you tried.
~lickies, Ludo

Unknown said...

You are correct, Mango. I do want to share your links. If you were asking me, I'd be honored, but I had to ask first. Thank you. I'm a tiny fan of your media and I know that my young friends will fall in love with your videos, you and Dex.

Tee said...

Hello there Mango and Dexter!

What great fun. We enjoyed your video very much. Hehehe.

We love your cape and Dexter's new ears too!

A very happy christmas and a merry new year!

I'm adding you guys to my dogger blogger list so that I can visit more often!

Randi said...

Hi Dexter Cublet!

It took THAT LONG for you to get my card??? They were sent a week ago MONDAY!!! Like FUREVER ago!

Wow...oh well..Now you can look at me & *sigh*

Love & Licks,

PS..your card was the FIRST ONE I GOT!!! Sooo cute!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We love your new header!! Mango that must be your super-pup cape..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Marjie said...

Of course that is a special Christmas cape. Your momma knows that a Mastiff would never wear a tree skirt. If she tried to make you do so, your comrade Mastiffs would have to come have words with her.


monica said...

oh my goodness that cape is nice - off course it is a cape, not a skirt ( for trees, mastiff girls or whatever..) :o)
wow a lot of bouncing around in the video..

Amber and Nala said...

Oh Dexter, I think you can do it! :) Keep practicing. I love your doggie nativity set down below too! Cute!


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

So funny!!! Y'all always make mom laugh even though she is saying we have no business on the puter right now. Too much to do.
Sorry about the change in PL's. That always sux when you like the PL you already have.
Guess she needs to take some lessons from you Mango. On meditating... ;)
Sunny,Scooter&Shamus(who thinks that looks like the greatest fun!)

Piappies World said...

Hi Mango!

Congratulations to you both on your award! That was lots of fun bouncing around in the video. Fun! You also have lots of great Xmas stuff at home. We especially love your very OWN Xmas tree and the puppy nativity set is so priceless.

We are also feel sorry for Graham crossing over the rainbow bridge. We are sure though that he still constantly watches over his family as a star up in heaven.
