Hey! Is any doggie out there having trouble seeing my header photo? I heard my new layout is causing some troubles.

Recently I had the great pleasure of opening not one, but TWO packages for the Mango.

The first was from my good pal and fellow full sized doggie, El'bow and his little peewee brother Hauwii. I got picked in their GABE give away, PLUS they sent me some extra stuff for my large and celebrated worldwide birthday.

Check out this slobber bib just for ME! Now I was uncertain as to whether a bib was appropriate for a dignified doggie such as myself, but if it is good enough for El'bow, it's good enough for me.

In fact I kind of liked it because when I dipped it in my wading pool it made a nice wet compress on my chest to keep me cool (oops, please excuse my lipstick in this photo).

PeeWee, who is not typically a fan of costumes took to his right away and even I have to admit he looks darn cute.

Plus El'bow sent me a most fun making toy called a noise maker that is momma operated. Watch the movie here.

Here is some of my other loot. This stuff is from Norwood. As you will recall I won FIRST PLACE in the Romantic Film division of his most awesome movie festival. If you missed my moving entry or just want to watch it again, click here.

PeeWee was intrigued by the bubble machine. I actually was more keen on getting the foodables packages opened up.

I put my academy award on the mantle next to my Grandpa Angus stuffie so that no labradorks would mess with it.

But momma insisted I pose with it. Hurry up and take the picture, I can hear PeeWee sneaking up behind me!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. I hear we are having a VERY busy weekend coming up, so try not to miss our comments for a couple of days. Hope busy means fun times for the Mango!

I can see your header photo just fine, Mango. And might I adds that it is just plum adorable? I thinks it's okay to wear a bib cuz humans go to swanky places and eats lobsters and they wear bibs. And all in all, you're a pretty swanky guy.

And congrats on your Pawcademy Award! Can I haves your pawtograph now that you're even MORE famous than you were?

Header looks good to me. And, I really like you bib. Do you think it'll catch your Mango suds?

Golden Samantha said...

Header blinks on and off when I leave page as in movie or to biggify a picture, but I can see it sometimes and it's great! Now I knows that it was not a lobster dinner, but even better, great Pressies - love your PawDance award - and all the goodies that came with it. And El'bow surely send you both some amazing bibs - super to think of using yours, Mango, as a coolant.

Hi, Mango!
I see your header with no problems!
You got pawesome presents!
That noise maker is great! Here we call them "espanta suegras" (something like... scare-mother-in-laws).
I hope you all will have a great weekend!
With lots of fun times for the Mango!

Scooter said...

Puglette said...

i did not have any problems with the header until you asked! i saw a quick blink and then just black. mango, it looked like you enjoyed the noise maker very much. i think it tickled your nose! and congrats on the academy award, you deserve it.

houndstooth said...

Your header is just a black rectangle for us now. Before today we could see it, though!

You got some excellent prizes! I think I'd like one of those noise makers. Mom says we'll have something to celebrate on Monday, so I am hoping those will be involved! Those bibs are awesome!


Pippen said...


Where's your acceptance speech for your award? I think there's some kind of tradition in the movie industry that you are supposed to thank everyone for all their help in getting you the award...

And we see your header for a second, just long enough to take in you and the Dexter and then it's gone.

Have a fab weekend!

Sam and Pippen

We love both of you in your slobber bibs! They are very cool! And we need to have mom get us one of those noise makers! They looks like fun!

No worries on the header - working great (and looking great). Have fun on your busy weekend.

Tucker said...

I can see the header for about 3 seconds, then it all goes black.

Cool prizes, I'm jealous of the bubble machine.

woof - Tucker

Ina in Alaska said...

Hi Mango! We hope you will have fun times this weekend. We see your header for a brief second as your blog comes upon the screen, then it goes away to a black rectangle and does not come back.

Great bibs, prop (it takes so little, doesn't it) award and Love Song. Your film producers are very talented! We learned how to do the "click HERE" for our movies from your momma just by following your bloggie!! Now if we only knew how to add the cool music and edit two videos together.... oh well, someday.... xoxoxo

ScrapsofMe said...

Yer header flashed briefly and turns black. At first I thought maybe it was x-rated or something. But I refresh it and it's there, then goes black again. Oh well, black goes with anything so at least yer fashionable.

Loved the bibs...great for lobster.



Sewmouse said...

I use Internet Explorer, and like some others, I see the header photo for a short time, then it turns into a black rectangle. I added my browser name because sometimes special effects will work with one browser and not another.

Sue said...

We are very impressed with your Academy ward, Mango. Tess says she wants your autopawgraph, but she's too shy to ask. She says she doesn't know how to talk to a big star like you.

Anonymous said...

Mango congrats on your pressies! Hope you're having an exciting and adventurous weekend!!!

Marjie said...

I got the slabber bib, too, and it is most convenient for controlling the drools. Plus, my people consider it most stylish. They refer to me as having "Euro Styling", whatever that may mean.


Tama-Chan, Benny, Momo, Vidock, Violette, Ollie, Hotesse & Heloise said...

Those bibs are awesome, Mango! And all that other stuff! What luck!


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

What great presents you got Mango.. That bib fits you just great, not that you need it!!! He he

Cool award for your wickedly good movie Mango. Paws up pal. Norwood has fine taste... especially in eating frogs.

Oskar said...

What exciting and wonderful presents!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

No problem for us to see your header and it is very nice too:)

Lots of great pressies - we like that noisemaker - we think we see one in a package we got here too.

We like those bibs a lot, good way to catch any dribblings of your dinner so you can lick it all back up:)

Moose said...

I can see your header fine (not sure if you changed it since your post though- I am late in reading this). It took a second to appear but there you and pee wee are in all your glory! I love the noisemaker. It is like your momma is a stuffie or something. Moose had a gorilla stuffie with a tongue that did that.

1000 Goldens said...

Oh crap, you two look so cute in your bibs, I am dying over here! Mango, can you believe how cute your little brother is with the big smile on his face?

Koobuss said...

A bib!! What a wonderful idea!! And you both look so nice in it. How thoughtful of El'bow to send you them.

And an Academy Award, too!! WOW!! Congratulations to all involved!!

Love the new header and blue sides. Your blog looks great!

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Unknown said...

Hi Mango - I couldn't see your header when I visited a couple of days ago (it was just a big black space) but I can now! Love your new bibs - soooo cute!

And I'm looking forward to my package from Norwood now after seeing all the loot that all the other winners have been getting!

What a lovely pressies from El'bow and great trophies from Norwood... you guys look cute in those bibs.

Licks, hero

Joe Stains said...

That noise maker thing kind of made you into a dancing star. Congrats on all your great pressies, you deserve them. Oh, and Peewee does look sort of cute in that bib.

Daisy Dog said...

We cna see the header, and love the drool bibs!! Very distinguished! What willl your next movie be Mango?

Anonymous said...

BOL on the bib. Most appropriate giveaway, haaaaa...

ocmist said...

That's a cool award trophy and such great presents! Love seeing the smiles they brought to your RH face!

Grammy uses photoshop to edit our pics (brighten, crop, etc.) and she uses the smudge tool when we have a peeking lipstick, but since you always gets such interesting comments, like from Khyra, I wouldn't worry about it if I were you, Big Guy! BG
