A Brand (almost) New Toy for the Mango's Birthday!

One should be able to expect BRAND NEW toys for one's birthday, correct?

Imagine my disappointment when momma produced THIS and claimed it was my birthday present. I mean, come on, that is the 584 year old holy roller with one of stupid PeeWee's miniature tennis balls stuck inside. You call that new?

Yet somehow I was curiously intrigued and found myself bounding joyfully after it when momma tossed it into the yard.

And reluctant to give it back to her even when she asked for it nicely. Yuh, as if she can pull anything out of my large and not letting go jaws.

I did wander off to take care of my business which afforded PeeWee time to investigate. He was clearly confused by the presence of the tennis ball. Here you see him adopting his "throw the tennis ball" posture. But, PeeWee, that is NOT a tennis ball.

In fact it is MY new toy and when I saw him sticking his little black snooter at it I charged with alarming speed.

Hand it over, squirt.

I guess Momma is not such an idiot after all because this has become my brand new most favorite happy making playtime thing ever. Thanks, momma.

Watch the exciting movie by clicking here.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Some of you have said, "Hey Mango! Give me that livers cake recipe. My mom can bake without endangering herself." Well, I would love to, but my momma is a real stickler for something called Copyright. She says that if authors and musicians and artists and stuff don't get paid for their work then they won't be able to keep creating new things. So all I can offer is the link to the book on Amazon here. Good luck!

New or otherwise... it's the fun factor that counts and from the look of things, this holy roller scores high on the scale... but poor PeeWee seems puzzled by the ball inside though.

Licks, hero

Martha said...

What a cool toy - a ball inside a ball!
We could see you were intrigued Mango and even if it wasn't new it was just the right birthday toy for you.
We think your mom is very clever.

Wooos Mango Man! Scampi would be tearing that thing apart to get to the ball, Not surprised that Pee-wee was confused, it would confuse Scampi too!
It looks as though woo really enjoyed it. Great job scaring off the Labra-dude!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

You didn't get any new toys for your Birthday??? I am SHOCKED. Butt, you seem to have recovered well. Love the holy roller thingy.
PeeS... now that you have discovered that wonderful squirty cheese stuff.... you've gotta have your mom squirt some in the ends of your cows milky thingy. It is sooooooo much fun to get it out, plus it gives the cows milky thingy the grrrreatest 'after taste' ever.
AND... I will have to share how I taught my mom to make Milkbone sundaes with that cheesy stuff on top. Dee Lish Us !!!

Anonymous said...

That looks like it was a really fun new old toy! Haha! Peewee sure did look confused by the whole thing. But not you! Now you have a fun new old toy AND canned cheese all to yourself! It's good to be the Mango!

Wiggles & Wags,

Heather and Kelly said...

Sue said...

That looks like a fun toy, but if I put a tennis ball inside the holee roller, Bailey would eat the hollee roller to get it out. She's the dog that eats the whole kong to get the peanut butter out.

The Adventures of the LLB Gang said...

That is a wonderful new toy Mango!!

I must say...that since you have been getting schooled by your Mama you seem much more chipper!!

Mack and Mia said...

I hope you got some dried up Dexter LabraDROOL in your mouth when you bit the green ball thing-a-ma-jig.

Wags and Woofs,

Um...I don't like liver...

Frankly, I prefer a nice yellow cake batter with double amounts of buttercream frosting...

Make that triple...

Wow! I had to have Mom biggify that picture of you galloping to make sure it was really you - you move with Most Impressive Speed (or so it looks in the picture - you've even got ear flappage going on!)!

Looks like a Most Excellent Toy!

Hope you have a brill playtime!


The Army of Four said...

Woo! That looks like fun, Mango! Especially 'cuz you can play tuggy-tug with it and everything!
PS: Mom said to tell your mom we have a Nikon CoolPix P90! She's had it for almost 2 years but is just now starting to understand more about it.

Agatha and Archie said...

That's a pretty cool toy even if it is recycled and has PeeWee's tennis ball in it!

Thanks for sharing the link for the pupcake book. Momma says it looks pretty cool and might just have to order it

Lots of slobber,

hello mango its dennis the vizsla dog hay yoo ar better off this way noo toyz depreesheayt considrably wunse they ar remoovd frum the store!!! ok bye

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

Whenever our mom was a pup and didn't like what foodable her mom had made, she heard the old "there are kids starving in China! Eat!" So mom giggled and imagined her mom telling you "there are dogs with NO toys in China. PLAY!"
For some reason she cracked herself up.....
Mom needs to get a moviemaker that is not tapes. The small camera we had which could do a short movie is broke and the big camera can't.... Probably just as well. She has a hard time with stills. What would happen if she tried to learn movies. Her head might 'splode we fear!
We think your dancing was tootsweet!
Happy mom's day to your mom. Did ya get her a pressie?

ocmist said...

Grammy didn't realize that the cake recipe came from a book. She thought maybe your Momma had gotten it from someone else, or made it up herself. She says she will probably have to figure out something herself.

Your toy looks really great and a lot of fun! Wonder how long it would take to chew it to little pieces... probably not very long as we could chew through the small line sections pretty easily. Grammy says we could get good jobs as destroyers or toys, or toy testers! The CC Pups

Oskar said...

Even though it is a recycled toy, it looks like great fun. I hope you had the best birthday ever!
