Such a Fuss...

Before I start, I want to ask you all to please send your good vibes to my pals Scruffy, Lacie (a.k.a. THE BEAST), and BabyStan and their Mumsie. Their Daddi is in the hospital with very bad sickies.

I was most surprised to see that Momma had stolen my bloggy whilst I was otherwise occupied. More so given that she posted about mysterious events of which the Mango has no knowledge.

What is this Seize Her that she keeps speaking of? And how can it be that so many doggies and their humans seem to know what it is?

I, Mango, have no recollection of the events she described with her dopey blue italicized letters. Although I do think that of last night was a bit curious.

It started off as usual with me relaxing and momma and master watching the Red Sox and eventually everybody went to bed.

Next thing I know, I am in the Mastiff Mobile with both Momma and Master headed who knows where. Huh? How the heck did that happen?

Note - this photo is a reenactment as Momma suspiciously did not bring her flashy beast nor use it during the alleged event.

I was wide awake and pretty amped up and eager to know of our destination.

When I saw it was the doggie ER, I couldn't have been happier. I love that place. I ditched Momma and Master and went into the special top secret back room where I was admired and patted and given the old celebrity treatment. After which I kind of dozed off.

Then, before I knew it, it was time to come home again.

PeeWee seemed really happy to see me and was quite intent on staying close to me. I wasn't really bothered. I could tolerate his labranearness, especially since momma slept on the couch close by. She said it was because she wanted to hear me breathing. Well, who wouldn't, I suppose.

It does seem strange that Momma was not feeling well today. She said she did not get enough sleep and was very worried but that reading all your wonderful comments made her feel much much better.

Me? I was pretty much ready for action all day long. Dang, but it is still really super duper hot so Momma won't let me play outside except in the early morning and late evening. Check it out, my very first walkie movie!

(Whoops! You will need to scroll to the very end for my movie. Blogger did a funny when I cut and pasted it).

Now I will say that I was caught red handed knocking plums off the tree, but I swear I did not eat any. Sheesh! Even I know that plum pits are poisonous, right? But I can tell that Momma was FREAKING that I even paid attention to them and she has seen some plums scattered around the yard, so there goes that entertainment.

I also want to tell you that due to Momma feeling funny she has not helped me to catch up and comment on blogs. Sorry about that. I think that Saturday night she hit the Mark all as Read button due to mentals overload.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Hey! Remember those baby robins on my front porch? Well, apparently they have flown the coup so to speak. Here is a photo of the last baby standing. This little one was most reluctant to leave the nest and spent considerable time just standing there crying like a big baby.

Then he/she (hey, if you know how to tell if a robin has nards, let me know) stood on the banister pooping and chirping and finally took off, never to be seen again.

HERE IS MY WALKIE MOVIE! I sure hope it works.

Ohh I am so pleased to see you up and about and looking gorgeous Mango. You not only gave your Momma and Pop a scare you gave us all one too, Molly was extremely concerned for you and for Dexter too as he must have been all disconbobulated by the sieze-her too. I have them sometimes and I think it is worse for those around us as we are blissfully unaware of them luckily. Ask your Momma if Dexter was acting oddly on the night you had your problem as dogs often can pick up on when a human is going to have a wobbly so it may be he noticed something was hinky.......... worth checking out .
Anyway sweetheart Molly sends you her luvs and licks and I send you and Dexter big hugs.

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Oh, it's so good to see you back in action, Mango. Now you take it easy and maybe go easy on Mom, too. Tell her not to worry about commenting on any blogs. We'll all be here when you're both caught up on rest and such.

lotsa licks, Lola

Peppy Sheppys said...


You look most wonderful on your walkies. We hope that you are feeling much better and there have been no further attempts to seize her. Be sure to let your Momma get some rests so she does not forget to feed you your Mango rations. And also you don't want to get sickies again or Dexter might keep snuggling w/you.

Sheps w/Pep and Otis the Potus

Eric said...

OMD...I am so very sorry I missed Moma's post yesterday. Please tell her so Mango. Wagging you are feeling better now. Stay that way ok? No more episodes like that please, pray it was a one off. Mom sends comforting hugs to your Moma and scritchies for Dexter the good boy.

Wiry love Eric xx

Personally, i think Mango Momma said "CEASAR" as in the delicious salad, of which, I should point out, that you had NONE of, thank you very much. And you should be very dismayed that here she is "mango had a ceasar" and did YOU see any delicious cheese and thick gooey dressing on top of healhty veggies? No. Nope. Nadda. I say your momma is cryin' wolf again. Time to remind her that the next time she claims that she darn well better put that plate of deliciousness right in front of your large and ready-to-chomp mouth so not to make a liar out of her or you. sheessh...

WFT Nobby said...

Oh Mango, we are just catching up after a being away, and have read about your seizure. We are so relieved that you are now feeling better. My predecessor Hamish suffered from seizures at the end of his life, probably triggered by a brain tumour, but he was an old dog, not like you. Gail says that they were very scary. The first one took place late on a Saturday night outside her remote Highland cottage, 70 miles from the nearest vet. We do hope that yours was just one of those 'one-off' things.
Take care, big boy.

the teacher's pets said...

Hi Mango! I heard about your seizure via Frankie Furter but my computer was having a few seizures as well which made it impawsible to write to you soooo now that the computer is back to behaving itself I can write a "get well soon" note! I wonder what the cause of your seizure was? And what do the vets have to say about it? Do you have to take any meds now? Please keep us updated!

Heather and Kelly said...

Oh Mango we're so glad that you're better now!! It sounds like you became the center of attention in your house after your you well should. It's a big ordeal even if you don't remember it.

Hope you stay well!

Mack said...

OMD! You actually LIKE going to the evil V.E.T.???
Anyhoo, we are so glad you are back to your Mango self and feeling fine!
Please give your momma a bunch of relentlessly huge kisses cause I know she is needing them about now!

the magic sleigh said...

Woos Mango Man- I know just how you feel, one minute woo are asleep, the next you are off to the vets.. humans....
Mom says to watch for a trigger, she thinks it may be something you even ate, like plums????? I was triggered once by a bee.
~husky kisses~ Stay well and strong

Unknown said...

I am so glad you are doing better, Mr. Mango!

I just loved the walkie movie your mom made of you! You look most handsome in it (but to tell the truth, you didn't seem too interested in being filmed BOL!!!)

Your furrend,

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Big Brother, glad to see you walking on the red carpet again. Looks like the whole DWB gathering around you to watch every little action of your post "seize her" experience.
Seize the moment Mango, demand numerous belly rubs, treats, toys, car rides, everybody including Dexter would have to lisen to you.

Niamh said...

Glad to see that you are usual relentlessly huge self Mango. We don't think that your momma was making this up even if you don't remember most of it. She is always looking out for you. Give her some smoochies.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Jake of Florida said...

Drat, we left a long message -- but it got eaten.

All we reallyw anted to say was Whew! we're so glad you're feeling better. Even if you don't remember what happened, just know that your momma and master were extra brave and took good care of you!!!

We're keeping you -- and your momma -- in our thoughts oh great huge one!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry and Mom

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Mango I am soooo very much glad that you are fine now. I was kinda scared when I read all that stuffs. I guess they just don't know that you are a magical guy who can overcome anything... I mean afterall you manage to deal with the labradude AND your momma.
Butt no more seize hers. OK?

Ruby Bleu said...

Hi Mango...
I just read about your very peculiar evening...and my, I'm so happy you are ok! How scawie for the Momma!!! Glad you are feeling better, but take it easy, OK???

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Raymond and Busby said...

Nice to see the mobile Mango. We bet your Mom could use some sleep. Hope your stinkin' hot weather cools down soon, we think that would help everyone. Still sending purrs from across the country, xoxo.

Linda said...

Hey Mango,
Glad to see you walking ok in the video. Mama forgot to mention in her pmail to you that you should also note the weather temp. in your diary, if it's humid, storm coming or leaving, moon cycle, etc. Many of Snickers' seizures hit before storm fronts and near a full moon, weird huh? She was usually just laying on the floor napping too. If she was up and walking around, she would be very anxious, not knowing what she wanted, like if she wanted outside, or a drink or in her kennel, etc. We hope you have a healthy week!
Wirey Hugs, Purrz & Licks,
Butchy, Katie, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby & Hootie

Kelly said...

My darling Mango,

Momma and I were able to read about your Seize Your on momma's phone this weekend, but we could not comment. We have just been BESIDE ourselves with worry!

I have absolutely no advice to offer, except what your momma already knows. Do some research, don't be afraid to ask questions, and be your own advocate. There is lots of information out there and I hope some of it is helpful. Mango Momma is ALWAYS giving you the best care. I have no doubt that you are in the best hands, my large pal.

Thinking of you and sending you half of my healing vibes (the other half are going to Dadsie)


The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

Mango looks fantastic. I was distressed to read about his seizure. poor sweet guy.

Beth and Alfie said...

Poor Mango, siezures are no's hoping you're all better & no repeat episodes! Glad to see you looking better...

rottrover said...

Hey Mango Man! Glad to see you up and about. Tell your mom to get some rest, and no more BIG adventures for a while, OK?

PeeEssWoo: Nice walkie!

Marjie said...

With parakeets you can only tell by a stripe along the edge of the beak, because they don't seem to have nards. Robins just might be the same. Glad you're fine, big guy. We giant doggies have to be concerned about each other!


Sophie Brador said...

Mango, I might try to have one of those Seize Hers if it means cookies. I'm very happy to hear you are all back to normal and got some celeb treatment. Just avoid the Lindsay Lohan type celebrity.

Also, robins with the super red chests are the boys, I think. They have more colour than the girls.


Sue said...

We're all happy to see you up and about. Our Mom is keeping us inside and making us drink lots of water and take lots of naps. She says something about a heat advisory.

Randi said...

Aw Mango - so happy to hear you are up & well & ready to play...& that your little bro Dexter is keeping near you as well...& my mom said she'd love to slumber by you as well - as you said, Who Wouldn't?

& your walkie movie is masterpiece!

Love & Licks,

Lacy said...

woofs, had to check on how the big boy is..glad u feeling some better. ..i had another thought too...rocky is really,hyper.. that day he had his bad seizure, he had tried to herd everything on the highway, barked at everything that moved at the store..we got home and he was raising cain at the cats and squirels..soo i think that triggered his..i try to keep him very calm now, (lol, hard to do sometimes)..

pps, word verifacation tootledg heehee

Jans Funny Farm said...

Glad you are feeling better despite your amnesia, Mango. Be glad you can't remember the event. Your mom needs some "extra" rest. Humor her.

Anonymous said...

Lookin good Mango Man! Nice swagger!

Practicing that ol' selective memory I see ;) Never know when Mom or Dexter might ask you to do something like "stay". And you'll be able to give them that "deer in the headlights look".

Admiring your slyness,

Zona said...

Mango, I'm so glad to hears that you're feeling like yourself. I know it was a mystery to you but we were all worried about you. Make sure you give your mom lots of snuggles. That makes them feel better when they're worried. My sister used to steal peaches and CHOMP the pits. They were "poisonous" too so my mom would freak out. It never affected her but after awhile, the two leggers chopped down that tree. Sorry you've been cut off the plums!


Heather and Pumpkin said...

Oh Mango, I am glad you are feeling better today. My paws are crossed for you.


♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Ahhh, that was such a great movie to see. We were all pretty worried about you, Bubba, Mango, RH. Even if you don't remember it, your little episode scared the crap out of a lot of us. So good to see you are back to your wonderful self.

houndstooth said...

I can understand your mom have mentals overload after the scare you gave her! Mom said that Treat used to scare her when she had her seizures, too. She said Treat would take a nap the whole next day after she had one, even!

I'm glad to see you up and about!

Oh Mango Dude we are so very happy that you are back to your old GoodLooking Mango Dudeness!!!

So sorry that your Mom is so tired but I am sure that she will feel better soon after some much needed rest.

I'm sending you big ole Maltie kisses and licks so you will feel lots better!

Hiya Mango - great to see you totally unfazed by this big guy, you are one hooge cool dude! And your mama is our new hero - she was so awsome and did brilliantly during this strange 'seize-her' thing, our FH says that she would have totally freaked (she wouldn't really be anyone's chosen 'go-to' guy in a crisis!!) Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Mango man, we are so glad that you are walking about and pretty much back to normal. What a scary experience. We'll keep our paws crossed for you.
Get well Smooches,

PS(from the human): When our (now departed) Persian,Chuck, would miss the litter box we found a great cleaner called Kids 'n Pets. It has some special enzymes and really got rid of the smell and did a good job cleaning. I am VERY sensitive to odors and this worked for mild cases that were cleaned up immediately. (I also have a recipe for super stinky cat pee clean up if you ever need it.)Sure hope this was a one shot deal for Mango.x-cassie

Without a doubt!

Mango bubba going for his walkie ... aaaah. Awe . . . Enough of that! You, silly silly goose, don't you DARE ever scare your family and furiends like that. You hear me??? No funny post is going to save you from Twinkie's wrath. Phew! You better be glad you're well or else. I was packing my bags you know?
Oh, Mango... I'm so glad you're feeling so much better. Now go lick your mommy and say you're sorry and you love her.
Mommy: you realize we are all anxious to find out that the RH is A-okay :)

Achieve1dream said...

Mango you're so handsome in that video! I'm glad you don't remember what happened and that you're feeling okay. I hope your Mom gets some rest.


P.S. Mom says she wishes she had the guts to hit the mark as read button but she's afraid she'll miss something important. She has over two hundred posts to read. :(

Wyatt said...

Hi Mango-

Sorry to hear about your health scare. Your Mom and Dad must have been worried something fierce!
Take it easy big dog.
I put some good wishes for you, in my lucky horseshoe.

Aire kisses,

ocmist said...

We are so glad to hear that you are doing so good today, and are praying that will continue for many years. Maybe it was that stuff that you breathed during your big adventure that knocked you out... Best stay away from that from now on! :)

At least your Mom won't have to worry about being dive-bombed by birdies anymore with the babies out of the nest. Grammy always checks our poos for several days after we act "not quite ourselves." Peoples are like that, so don't get worried if she does that. It is normal. I'm sure that you and Dexter are trying to take care of her as best you can after her big scare... not the kind of Big Adventure SHE wants again!

All our love from Corgi Country

Deefor said...

Hi Mango

I hope that bad thing NEVER comes back. My mom had them so she knows how you feel. She says it's more scary for the people watching. Just a little confused when you wake up. She takes medicine that works for a long, long time.

About the peeing. We have some stuff we clean it with. Then a little spot shampoo machine for all the times Arrow "misses" the pee pads. I'm just glad he's little. We'd have a flood with all his pee. (You only did it cause you were sick. He has no excuse.)

Sometimes we humans love to fuss over things... can't help it! I think it is kinda funny that pee wee sort of fussed over you too. That pic of him by your head is adorable. He looks like a wee pup with his giant (for a labradog) paws.
Ohhhh the plums look delicious. Sorry you can't have them. Maybe momma could teach you to spit out the pits? I bet pee wee would think it was a rock and eat it. Bad idea.
Very nice walkies!
Stay cool big guy!
