Special Report from Mango

Mango here bringing you a special report...

Because it is time for Mango Minster!

That's right! We are underway and the Shameless Doggie Divas are in the ring even as we speak so get on over to Mango Minster and cast your votes.

Oh, hang on, do I have my blog back? Hehehe.

We have had the good fortune of above freezing temperatures the last couple of days which has started the BIG MELT. Sadly, it has also left our driveway impassable by my large and not having skates for feet self.

Not so the Pea, who insisted on walkies. Now looking at this photo, you might say, "Oh Mango, I can see the driveway. That does not look bad." But you would be WRONG because that is the dreaded blackened ice which causes human and beast alike to be all sliding onto their jolly bottoms.

I hope that none of my loyal readers have been duped by the largely fabricated posts that the midget has been doing in my absence.

Rest assured that he continues to be a totally annoying labradork.

Check out this photo. Is it Mr. Cool all walking on top of the snow? Look more closely...

See how his oddly webbed labrafeet are all splayed?

Yuh, for sure, because he is trying not to FALL THROUGH! Like I totally warned him, "Dexter, do not walk on the snow pack." And he was all like, "Be quiet you big baby, I am light as a feather."

OK, whatever, says I, whilst prudently sticking to the potty paths and sure enough, the little doofus kept falling through and getting stuck and looking, frankly, like a complete idiot.

Sure, and he was all trying to bribe me not to post the following movie, but what can he offer? Seeing as I am momma's most favorite doggie ever, I have all the noms, beds, snuggles, and attentions I could ask for. What does the squirt have? Leftovers and coating of slobbers on his curiously prodigious black furs. So in your face, PeeWee, here for all the world to see is you being your usual mental fits spastic self (oh yeah, I even added most annoying polka music to the video - he HATES that music).

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

wow, you look like the not-entirely-without-brains doggie in that movie. but i wonder, if you walked on that snow, i'd bet you could move easier than pea due to your long-and-not-without-huge-muscles gams!

Unknown said...

Hey there's Mango! Nice to see you making a guest appearance here at Dexter's Doings blog!

**huh, momma? Did you say this is really da Mango Blog!?!***

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

Poor Dexter....he needs some icy skates. Note to Mango: Get Dexter skates next Christmas.

PeeEss...I sees all dat slobber hanging on your chins. Does it ever freeze?

Golden Samantha said...

Oh you poor dogs - those pictures do justice to showing how scarily slip-sliding the driveway and ice-topped snow are! Mom remembers that it could actually be painful to fall through snow crusts like that. Dexter - you are brave and Mango: good warnings heheh! Take care with that black ice monster around.

Oh MY Dawgness!! Now that is a lot of deep snow and slippery Ice fur sure... butt you should see what it is like where I (Judge Frankie Furter) am.. It is soooooo deep and slippery that it is WAY WAY over my head.. Like almost up to the tree tops and stuffs. NOBUDDY can even get CLOSE to my Sea Quest Heard location. It is really awful here, I'm just sayin.

Mack said...

Yay! for Mango Minster!
Guys, that is just too much snow!

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

C'mon, Mango! Show a little sympathy for the labradorkly challenged!

We've cast our vote for the People's Choice Doggie Diva Award.

Next year, I'm thinking about opening some off-red carpet betting...

Corbin said...

We've got the crazy ice here too... no fun!
ps. GREAT video! hehe, the momma and I were giggling!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

We didn't know whether to laugh or cry for poor Dexter. That could not have felt very good. And tell your Mom to stay off that blackened ice before she takes a good splat.

Mango, do your slobbers ever turn to icicles? Just curious:)

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

We're lucky enough to have a Husky, who loves the snow (and she's lucky that we live in western New York state, so she gets plenty of it). Even she wouldn't go for that, though; poor Dex!

That black ice is the worst! You don't even realize you hit it until you find youself sprawled out on the ground!
We hear the cold temps are coming back, PeeWee. Better stay off the snow until they return.

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

rottrover said...

Poooor Dex. When is he ever going to listen to the Mango? We loved your tail kepin' time with the polka music!!

houndstooth said...

It looks a lot like here, unfortunately! We are quite familiar with the slipping and sliding, not to mention the cold, wet, slushy puddles! No fun! Bring on Spring!


Peppy Sheppys said...

Great vid, guys! We just have lumpy hard snow that makes it hard to walk and annoying. Only Edgrr is teeny enough to walk on it. Can't wait for spring!

We're heading over to Mangominster now. We've been bad about commenting on blogs because our ape is super lazies.

ThePainterPack said...

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Love the video Mango! Especially the shot of your most handsome tail wagging! Dex is too funny!

Absent a name change, this is still officially Dexter's blog, so thank you for the commentary and video, extra special guest blogger Mango. Dex, it's lucky you have a tow-mastiff on staff in case you fall in so deep you can't get out. But you really need to stop dragging Dexter Momma out on the black ice. You have webbed paws, but she doesn't. Dex, we think you should be grateful for the video, as it shows off your muscular and athletic form to great advantage.

Poor Dexter! We actually feel sorry (sort of) for the wee rat. We're not big fans of the 'breakable crust' variety of snow that you've got there. Or that black ice stuff, either. Eesh.

Coco Bean - The Princess said...

Mango Man...Our mommy is in Masterchusets supposedly on a business trip...we would be thrilled if you saw her...but pretty upset if she lied about the whole business part of the trip and flew out just to see you and left us behind.

When mommy landed she called and checked on us and we asked if she saw you when the plane was landing and she said that she didn't so you must have been inside.

Have you seen our mommy? I know she has a thing for your massive head and wants to give you kisses. If you see her, can you please push her into the big marshmallow piles i keep seeing!?

You'd better watch out. The LabradorS in this house are getting bent out of shape by your attitude toward "The Dude", Dexter. He's awesome. I bet that he could run the weaves on the snow!

BTW, your weave poles look as amusing as ours!

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

Couldn't leave a comment on your latest post, so I'm leaving it here. Mom is laughing a the 'wicked pissa cold' here; apparently 100 years ago (or some time in the past), Mom was a ski instructor and used to teach with a couple from Maine who used that phrase all the time (they weren't talking about Utah weather, usually). Mango, buddy, the best way to stay warm is to sit on your Mom's lap. Just saying....

OHHH Boy!!! We were all dancin' the Pittsburgh Polka to that music...yes, not one Burgh wedding is without a good polka...

I do feel a tad sorry for Peewee....I RARELY break through the fake snow...but he looks pawsitvely miserable not to be able to persue his usual Peewee agilities...did ya see him starin' at those agility poles like they were gonna tell him somethin'????

As for that string of slobber on your nose, Mango, perhaps you should carry one of my lacie hankies from the Vintage Lacie Collection?

I could sell you one for a slightly discounted price.
