For reasons which are unclear to me things have been very dull around the estate lately. Well, OK, PeeWee did get sick on Sunday and then I, Mango, got sick for three days (and yes, I do eat ten cups of kibble per day... anybody have a problem with that?) and now Master is sick, but seriously, is that entertaining? I think not!

Given the lack of new action adventures, I am compelled to provide you with some entertaining links to other doggies whom are actually doing things.

My good friend and fellow mastiff, El'bow, has posted some very useful tips for those of you still putting together your posts for the Mango contest. You can read them here.
And Miss Puddles also has posted some helpful hints for Mango wanna be's here.

I also want to share with you a very instructive blog post from Nanook and Pooka. It is all about what it is like to live with a Newfoundland doggie, but most of it applies to mastiffs as well, so if you are considering a full sized doggie you should read it carefully and follow the instructions. Check it out here.

Look at this movie! Not even worth YouTubing as far as I am concerned. It is called "momma puts on her shoes" and is comprised of 40 seconds of mind numbing "action." Good thing I at least am in it, but if you turn your volume up you can hear evil witch lady saying "bad dog" in the end. She must mean idiot PeeWee, right?

You might be wanting to watch some really cool movies after that, right? So here is a link to an awesome dude named Max the Pug. I just love this little guy. You can see all his movies here.

Hopefully the weekend will bring some mentals stimulations and happy fun times.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Yikes. Having a sickie going round the house isn't any fun at all! I hope you all get better!

Mack said...

I'm sure she was just talking about PeeWee. I think you were just trying to give her face slobbers, and who doesn't appreciate those?


Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

Sure she be talking about Dexter, but even if not, you know that bad dog just means do it more. Or maybe bark louder.

Now that IS mind numbing akhtion!

It works evFURRYtime!

Good lukhk with The DOH this weekend - rumour has it she might be stalking a SheWee on her way to Southern Maine!


pam said...

We hopes you and the PeeSwizzle are all betters.

And also don't understand why yer momma doesn't appreciate all the help you were trying to give her. Ungrateful DOH!

Maybe slobbering on those fruity new curtains will get some action going.

Marjie said...

I'm pretty sure your Momma needed your help with those shoes. I help my boys all the time. My stooopid momma wears something she calls "sandals" or "pumps" so she just walks into her shoes without my help. Hmpfh.

10 cups of food a day? Why would anyone have a problem with that? I eat 6 to 8 cups, plus some real food, like last nights pasta with spinach and tomatoes. I also get peanut butter sandwiches with "vitamins", whatever that means.

Hope Pee Wee's over his sickies, and I sure hope your Momma recognizes a hunger strike next time she sees one, so you don't have to call her the DOH over that again!


The Black and Tans. said...

I sure do hope you have an action packed weekend Mango.

Plan a little mischief, I am thinking I may do this...........


Raymond and Busby said...

Have a good weekend on the estate. Your Mom should buy some shoes that slip on instead of lace up. She seemed to have some issues.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Mango you sure have a lot of pups that want to be just like you...
Mom the video was a bit boring.. Mango we agree...

Sheesh! You went to all the trouble to help your mom with her shoes and she calls you a bad dog?! You need to redecorate that dog cave for sure!

Tee hee! I'll be hearing Purple Rain in my head every time I come here for months!

Hey Mango.
Sorry to hear about the boredom. Aren't there any home improvement projects you could help with? If nothing else, sometimes I'll work to I mean make something that Dad will have to fix! BOL

Hey, thanks for letting me re-enter your contest. I'm learning!

Grr and Woof,

Anonymous said...

Oh, yes. I'm pretty sure she was saying that to Pee Wee. Cuz she was looking at you. Like she wanted your sympathy. You know, kind of like, "Sigh...Mango...what are we gonna do with PeeWee? He's such a BAD DOG." She just forgot to put those other words before the "bad dog" part.

Anyways, sorry about the borings. That happens here sometimes, too. I hopes Master gets feeling better soon!

Wiggles & Wags,

Golly, sounds like my home. Over here we've got M out of commission but that pretty much means we're all sol. I know you're senior, that's why you get so much respect from me. I didn't want to post the senior dog age chart by weight and breed. It makes me sad.

Mango! Hope you feel better!!!

ocmist said...

Of course she was talking to PeeWee! Hope all are feeling better around there now. Mercy is doing so much better now, but Grammy was sick yesterday, so we know how boring it can get when no ones passing out the attention and the treats! The CCC
