A wedding... without ME!

Hey! Remember my alleged Fourth of July photo shoot? Yuh, well, it totally happened on the THIRD of July which I thought was kind of odd, especially since right after momma took the photos she stuffed me and PeeWee into the mastiff mobile and took us to camp.

Yup! She said that she and Master were going to someplace called a wedding which I was not invited to. Humph.

I warn you that there are many photos that do not have ME in them coming up, but I will add a photo of myself at the end so that you are not terribly bored (and of course there is my stellar commentary to amuse you).

I wasn't too bothered until I examined the contents of the flashy beast upon their return and discovered THIS!

That is my idiot nephew, Oliver, the mutant labrapup.

What was he doing there?

If he got to go, why didn't I? Not fair!

On second thought, maybe I was better off at camp. Look at this place! Can you believe it?

Totally packed with people and stairs and whatnot.

There were only about 30 humans plus dumb Oliver at the wedding, but apparently many spectators and on-lookers.

That beach is in Connect the Dots where Maggie and Mitch live, but they weren't invited either.

I recognize that guy in the middle. It's my human brother, Jake!

And there is my sissy-in-law, Shannon with some hairy nekked guys in the background.

That dress sure is white. Could use some slobbers, don't you think?

Smoochie face! Yoiks!

I guess that my sissy-in-law was not officially my sissy-in-law until just two days ago. Who knew?

I'll tell you something else. The irony of having a wedding on Independence Day was not lost on my large and deep thinking self. No way.

This was the old folks gallery in the shade. My Grandma and Grandpa are on the end and it looks like the sun is getting dangerously close to Grandma.

Apparently momma and master had to sit out in the hot sun during the ceremony which might have baked momma's brains a bit and caused her to take less than stellar photos.

Ha ha! Momma says every bride makes pissy face at some point during her wedding day.

That is my grandma next to Shannon. No doubt giving advice.

My sissy, Liz, and brother-in-law, Nate were there too. Look at Nate making stern face. You know why he does that? Because he is a spy! Yuh! Totally I mean it. You can read my expose here.

So I might be in big trouble for showing you the following image wherein he is actually smiling and looking goofy (and I apologize to my beautiful sister, Liz, for not cropping out her expression of dismay at Nate breaking cover).

Look! The labradoofus got assigned his own dog walker lady.

She even went swimming with him.

Seems that this guy wanted a closer look. He kept doing drive by's with his human. Hey! The action is over here!

That's my brother, Jake. All married now for sure.

OK, that is the end of the stupid human wedding pictures. Momma took some dorky movies and put them together on YouTube. She added some music that will make you feel happy sad and forget about her bizarre choice of things to video. Watch it here.

Master came to rescue us from camp in his big van and then he drove home on that scary Rt. 495! I tried to ride in his lap because I was most fearful, but he denied me my small comfort. What a meanie!

Stupid PeeWee immediately requested a photo to prove that he is not portly. Yuh, but he is still a dork.

As promised, here is a picture of my large and totally stretched out self. Enjoy!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. It is end of days hot here again! Oh save me!

I had to recuperate under the plum tree before I could make the long journey back into the AC'd estate upon completion of my business.

Hope we don't lose power or I will melt for sure.

What a beautiful beach wedding, congrats to the family... too bad you guys wasn't invited... I want a dog walker lady too :)... the thermometer almost maxed out, boy it must be scorching.

Licks, hero

Niamh said...

That was a very pretty wedding Mango! I am surprised to see that the labrapup was allowed to attend. I have seen your posts about him and it makes me thankful that I only have to deal with Ambrose!

Stay inside with the AC blasting! It is the only way to survive this horrible heat.

Your friend,

WFT Nobby said...

But con one legally be married without one's mastiff brother in attendance?
It doesn't seem right.
Toodle pip!

tula monstah said...

whatevah woo do.. don't go outside-

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

What a beautiful wedding and your nephew is very cute, but we love the last pictures of getting to see your RH handsome self.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Really, Mango, you wouldn't have wanted to be there. Hot sun, sand, water,too many pawple for your taste. In this case I think it's Dexter who's got the right to complain. Sun, water, sand, water, lotta pawple, water. Heaven for a labradude. Also, if that's the Long Island Sound, lots of rocks to bring to pawple. Wet rocks. Dexter should really issue a strongly worded complaint, especially in light of Oliver's presence at the affair. Oh, and congratulations to the happy couple, of course.

wags, Lola

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Oh, that was a cool and romantic wedding by the beach!
I enjoyed every picture in this post but of course your pictures are always the highlight of the blog. I wonder how long you are from paws to paws when you stretch. 20 feet?
We're rarely invited to a wedding that makes me think why not create your own wedding.

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

glad oliver is legitimate now

Pippen said...

That's some stretch there, Mango! How far can you reach like that?

Sam and Pippen

PeeS. Congratulations to your brother and sister in law!

Karen Raye and Bentley Beargrass said...

Nice pic of the stretch! Have a great week!

Jake of Florida said...

We've never been to a wedding either. How stoopid of the humans. Don't they know our presence makes everything better and more fun and more exciting and more unpredictable -- not to mention furry and drooly and occasionally LOUD???

Hey, I have a brother named Jake too. Does that connect us in some way?

Wirey woofs,

Just Harry

houndstooth said...

Wow! Your brother sure had a nice wedding. I think it was totally uncool that you didn't get to go, though! Does Oliver live with him or with your sister? Anyroo, I hope he's somewhere enjoying married life right now!


pam said...

We hopes big hopes that you made it back to the a/c'd estate. Because we surely don't want a meltin Mango. That would be a BIG puddle-o-mango...

Bobo and Meja

Beth and Alfie said...

Stay cool Mango! Congrats to your family!

Two Pitties in the City said...

Oh, congratulations! That looks like such a fun wedding.

Nancy at the Farm said...

Holy crapola Mango! It is really hot where you are! We're supposed to get up in the 90's and that is HOT for Oregon. We like your centerfold pose - you are gonna kill the ladies with that one for sure.

Love, Dozer

BRUTUS said...

What is it with these humans and all these elaborate get-togethers they insist on having? I've heard talk of a few weddings here too, and mom is even IN one of them, ugh. Sounds like a lot of crate time if you ask me! Keep cool there big buddy - we're trying to do the same!

Brutus & Carmen

Raymond and Busby said...

Congratulations to your brother & your new real sister in law. Probably better that you didn't go, Mango. That shadey spot wouldn't have been big enough for you and your grandparents. Stay cool, we know it has been awful hot there in the East.

Two French Bulldogs said...

Thank you for taking us along to the wedding. Can't believe you guys snuck in to take the photos.Good job.
Benny & Lily

NAK and The Residents of The Khottage Now With KhattleDog! said...

Oh yes!

The sheer irony of it all -

PeeEssWoo: My word is GAFFS - seems fitting - BTW, given that it is so blastie furnacie here in the East, maybe woo should borrow NorWeed's khool suit before feasting your RH eyes on WWW fur tomorrow!

Anonymous said...

Roo agrees that all white wedding dresses should have some slobber or at least some paw prints on them. Helps the people relax and not worry about spilling food :)

You're the man Mango!

Keep rollin'

Anonymous said...

thank dog you saved me from all those Connect de dots photos. hey I'm from Connect de dots, did you know?
Thank dog you are so relentlessly huge cuz it will surely take much longer for you to melt than the labradoink if the power should disappear.

Sue said...

I thought you would be 'best dude' for your brother at the wedding. Stay cool, Buddy.

JD and Max said...

Hi Mango - well, congrats to your human bro, but wht is it with humans and this 'kissy face' nonsense?! They obviously haven't advanced enough as a species to discover 'bitey face' yet - it's sad really!

Good to see a photo of Dexter looking lithe and sporty. And that last photo of you stretched right out all long and lenghty - KEWL!! JD stretches like that too and is now convinced he's just as big as you - Max just rolls his eyes and says "er, yeah JD, if it keeps you happy you just keep thinking that.....!!"

Cooling schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

BOL ... the irony of it!!!
No worries, Mango. I have a feeling we'll be going to Frankie Furter's wedding this summer. Thank you for the commentary

galathea said...

Hi Mango! I have been reading your blog a bit, and I made you a post in my blog. I think I have an answer to your question about that Dexterdog and his steam, and hoow you will get some more time with your momma. Hope you like it!

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Hmmm. They didn't want you as a flower girl (okay, boy), or ring bearer, or just Mr. "Adds Dignity To The Whole Event"? *sheesh* Most unfair, especially since I am sure that there were most excellent foodables there. I am also amazed that you haven't melted into a Relentlessly Huge puddle of slobber - that's HOT where you are! (And okay, maybe Dexter isn't portly, but he should talk to your Mom about the posting of unflattering pictures of him...)

Molly the Airedale said...

Nope, we weren't invited to the wedding either, Mango! By the looks on some of the guests faces, maybe it's a good thing we weren't invited!
We love your stretched out photo! haha

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

D.K. Wall said...

We figured you would be the best man. Shrug. Great stretch though.

Kari in Alaska said...

congrats on getting an official sister in law :)

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Aside from the fact that you saved the best for last - loved that stretch - thanks for sharing what looked like a very loving ceremony - nothing more peaceful than time spent at the seaside. Makes Mom wish she were still in New England. Congrats to the newlyweds and many more years of wedded bliss.

Cinnamon and Mint said...

I have never been to a wedding although Mum attended one overseas last year. I love the female human's white dress!!

Lorenza said...

Congratulations to Jake and Shannon!
I wish them the best!
Thanks for sharing the pictures!
Too bad you two could not be there!
Kisses and hugs

Sapphire said...

wow, congrats to your bro! nice stretch in the shade (:

Marjie said...

My humans went to a wedding LAST 4th of July without me. I don't understand how they could have had fun without me. Tell your bro Jake we said congrats!

End of Days hot here too. I played in the hose while my boys watered the garden, but I quickly went back to the central A/C in our estate. Stay cool, Mango & Pee Wee.


Unknown said...

Hey - how come there isn't any photo of your Momma at the wedding?? Hsin-Yi says she wants to know ALL the details of what she was wearing!! :-)

Oh - and she says congratulations, of course! Me too - sending congatulatory slobbers.

Honey the Great Dane

Kate said...

Umm Mango, there seems to be a trend here with the melting...

Is your Grandma a witch??

Happy swelteryness! I am cold and struggling to keep my feetyfeets warm.

Unknown said...

Hey Mango
I can't believe you weren't ring bearer. I'm sure the sissy in law would've loved the slobbers on her pretty white dress. I see Oliver's taken over as family favorite.. I'm sure you would've tried to gallop over to CT but your nards are probably melted to the ground.

Smushie Ranch said...

Mango, how do you guys deal with that heat??? Hopefully momma got you your own air conditioner instead of a measly fan to cool off your nards.

Stella, Gunther and Betty

Golden Samantha said...

That was a beautifully woofed post, Mango - and I can't figgur out why you and Peewee didn't get to go either. But that is a great "long dog" pose there, and Dexter looks pretty lean to me too! Have to say congrats to the bride and groom - wonderful movie - (love the guys' footwear and tide coming in)- a great juxtaposition of images. Thanks for posting even if you didn't get to attend, Mango!

Hugs xoxoxo

The Army of Four said...

What a disappointment! That white dress would have looked STUNNING with slobber and other assorted nose-snart all over it! A one-of-a-kind! What were they thinking, sending you to camp? Huh. Probably afraid everyone would lavish attention and affection on you instead of watching the wedding.
Stay cool. Or try.

Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Woof! Golden Congrats to your brother Jake. Beautiful Beach Wedding. Thanks for sharing their photos ... I know you're disappointed you were not invited.
I know it's HOT HOT HOT ... I'm staying indoors ... laundry room is coldest room in the house.
LOVE your new header photo ... that's a HUGE Tennis Ball. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

It is most mysterious why they woulda wanted to haves their wedding without you. I think you woulda been a Most Magnificent Bearer of the Rings, Mango! Or the bride coulda ridden in on your back like that Godiva lady (the nekkid one - not the chocolate). Now THAT woulda been memorable! So I guess without you there it was sorta boring but everybuddy looked real happy and romantical and stuff anyway.

Tell your human brudder congratulations! And I hopes the weather gets cooler soon so you don't melt into a big puddle of brindle goo.

Wiggles & Wags,

Sierra Rose said...

Hi ya Mango!! Great commentary of a most lovely wedding! Great spot and amazing weather. My humom and hudad were married on the coast in CT as well...Great photos of you and Dexter!!! Hi Dex!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

Peppy Sheppys said...

Many congratulations to your brudder and your sissy in law who is especially lucky to be related to YOU now. Most wonderful.

It is too hot here too. How far north do we have to go to get away from this heat???

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh my, a wedding on a beach, my Jeannie has gone all drool like. What's up with humans and weddings eh?

Personally, I enjoyed the pics of you and Dexter best.

It has been hot here, but no way near as hot as with youse. Hope you get some cooling breezes soon.

The Oceanside Animals said...

The 495?!!?!? NOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Achieve1dream said...

Congrats to the newlyweds!!

And I'm glad you didn't melt. That's a real danger lately.


ocmist said...

Hey, Mango… doesn’t look like you would have wanted to go anyway… They put Oliver in a cage and I’ll bet they wouldn’t be able to find a cage big enough for you!
These are things that the humans like to do and for them, I’ll bet it was a wonderful day… being at the beach AND getting to be fancy and enjoy each other’s company!
So… You’ve got a Brother in law AND a Sissy in law now… Your family is growing!
There’s one thing nice about the beach, though, and that is, that it is a LOT cooler! We got to go yesterday and it was only in the 60’s and it was 98 where we live!
