Our Bathroom is Too Small and Hatchling Update

Friends, it appears that momma's work place has cut off access to all the funballs internets and subsequently we are falling behind in our readings once again. Of course, one always has to ask why what she does at the workplace affects MY reading of blogs, but there you go.

Now many of my pals have written about how they enjoy visiting their humans in the wet room. Sadly, that is an official no dog zone at our estate.

Nevertheless, on the occasions that the simple minded moo does not securely latch the door, I am Mango on the spot to investigate the goings on.

My visitations are NOT appreciated and frankly it is always a bit of a pickle for me as our wet room is far too small to accommodate my Mango-ness. Here is a re-enactment movie...

Note to Master! This is for demonstration purposes only. I never ever ever go in there for sure, you can count on it, and neither does the Pea.

Hey! Did you hear the DOH call the squirt "midget?" See? It isn't just me.

For this demonstration, momma was kind enough to open the door all the way because sometimes I kind of sneak in and the door is not all the way open and I back up and my bottom hits it and it scares me and so I go forward and momma tells me to get out and I back up and my bottom gets bumped again and so I go forward and, well, I think you get the picture.

Oh, did you ask how the hatchling is coming along? I made a movie update for you.

Several alert readers have suggested the DNA testing which might not be a bad idea. I am having a hard time mustering paternal feelings for whatever that thing is. Does that make me a bad dad?

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

you look like you can get out of the bathroom just fine...

as for that hatchling thing... it looks alien. i would file a dna test so that thing can't claim any paternity on you. you have to protect the interest of your estate and cookies...

Amber-Mae said...

Mango seriously, what the HECK is that thing coming out of that weird looking egg??? That yellow thing looks like some kind of inbred mutant. Kinda looks like a cross between a chick & a giraffe. I'm REALLY curious to see it when it's fully developed.

Niamh said...

Maybe your master needs to do more renovations on your estate and enlarge the bathroom so you can fit in it better Mango. We like to go into our bathroom but only Ambrose will climb into the shower.

That hatching creature certainly is taking a long time to get out of that little egg. It looks very peculiar.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Amber DaWeenie said...

Yes, I would say dat DNA testing is definitely called for in dis situation.

Unknown said...

I really think a bathroom enlargement is in order, as well! I always seem to have at least 2 dogs in a heap on the bathmat, while I shower. And, 1 has been known to jump in the shower with me... you know, you haven't lived until you turn around and see a lab in your shower with you?!? LOL

Gus said...

we like the idea of enlarging at least one estate bathroom so it is Mango-sized. There is enough room in our current bathroom so that we can sit on the ledge that goes around the tub (yes, both of us) and play with the bubbles the rumbly thing makes.

And I wouldn't bother with DNA testing. Just send it here and we will let Teka eat it.

She will eat ANYTHING!


Cowspotdog said...

The solution seems simple enough - you just need a bigger bathroom ! Hmm I don't know about that hatchling - it certainly seems like the evil spawn of something else !

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Pawsonally... I stay as far away from the wet room as Pawsible. Except when it storms.. I go in there and mom closes the door fur me. Dark and Cave Like.

Your evil yellow hatchling Spawn.. prolly belongs to the Milkbone Man. Get the TEST!!!

The Heartbeats said...

When our Mamma takes a shower several things happen. Harry sits on the sink and Lucy licks the water off the tub, I stick my head in the shower just to be sure no one is there to hurt Mamma. Nikki is there to supervise Lucy and McIver watches from the hallway. Our bathroom might be a smidge bigger than yours. It gets crowded but we have to protect Mamma.


The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

we had to catch up and back read. i can't believe dexter got Lyme desease--ticks are HORRIBLE here, but they are the big ones that haven't been know to carry lyme so much. i might be wrong-- and it seems unfortunately strange that both your boys got it!

i would be careful of that egg. Groucho is always leaving them around our house. best to terminate lest you are overcome by aliens, or worse, a groucho lacie beast banshee cross

Unknown said...

Well at least you don't fling yourself towards the door or put your feet under the door. NOT that I would do such a thing.

Ina in Alaska said...

As if on cue, while watching the exciting BR video, one of my pooches has emitted some lovely gaseous aroma to perfectly compliment the bathroom scene..... Dexter looks unsure if he should leave the area... LOL.

The Boston Lady said...

You know, upon seeing that video of the hatchling, I DO see a slight resemblence around the eye to the Mango. Perhaps that's how you look without your handsome coat, sir.

As for the bathroom antics, well I can only compare to the changing of the bathroom-escort-guard that occurs here throughout the day. I don't think either you or Dexter would fit in either of the two puny bathrooms we have here - Mr. Tennis barely makes it in! Ann

Unknown said...

I cross my paws that the hatching turns out alright and the little creature in there is cute and healthy! As long as it's under your roof, be it two legs or four legs, you're the father of it.
Good Luck!!!

Corbin said...

Yea... dude. I like to go in there too, except when it's bath time. But the one in my house is also small, and sometimes I get really excited because one of my people is in there, so my tail wags... then I chase it... then it wags some more and splits open and boom... blood everywhere! So mom makes me sit still if I'm going to go in there. I even like to attend with guests of the house.

Anonymous said...

We have a really small half bathroom here...Riley almost gets stuck in it when we're both in there.

That yellow thing kind of looks like a pterodactyl...hope I spelled that right.

pam said...

Mommy watched that there video of you in the bafroom on bigify and she said 'yikes! Mango has a big head!' Her was scared but I said it's ok they don't call you relentlessly hooge fer nothin.

As far as that there egg, yes! to the DNA cause that there's an uglee babee somethin.

*sheesh* How long is it going to take for that thing to hatch? And yeah, either you produce really ugly babies, or that thing is not yours. Since we can't see you producing spawn that are that ugly, we're thinking it's not yours. Maybe Laciebeast had a close encounter with a midget brontosaurus?

As for the bathroom thing, you totally need a bigger bathroom. Tell Master to stop messing around with his basement and stuff and go knock out a few walls so you can have a proper Mango-sized bathroom. Because Moms really enjoy it when we join them in the bathroom. Trust me on this one! Heehee.

rottrover said...

Mango Man, we ALL have to follow Mom into her teensy little bathroom to make sure she isn't sneaking in there to put on her w.a.l.k.ing shoes. Then we all start wiggeling and wagging and then Gizmo gets in the shower, then Mom yells and we all leave, except Ruby who hasn't really gotten the fact that Mom thinks she is Cesar Millan and can 'claim the space.' Hey, we wouldn't want her to go for a w.a.l.k. without us, right?

On another note, Mango, were you in our neighborhood yesterday afternoon? We were coming home from our walk and this guy drove by in an old (nicely restored) Bronco and we could have sworn YOU were in the back. You had a huge smile on your face and looked like you were lovin' riding around in the convertable. It was just your style. Just wondering...

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Definitely need to get the Master to enlarge that bathroom - Momma needs to have your loving self in there to keep her company:)

And that hatchling - are you sure it isn't drowning? We think one test on top of the DNA testing is to see if it can drool - no drool, not cool - not Mango's!

brooke said...

hhehehehe. Darwin barely fits in our bathroom too. She loves to check on me though when Im in there. Once I took a bubble bath and left the door open a crack. She's too scared to actually push the door open, but would stick the tip of her nose in and whine whine whine. Finally Jason had to open the door for her so she could see I was just in the tub and she calmed down.

That egg is creeping me out Mango. What is it?! You made a dinosaur sea monster?!

Sue said...

Tsar never goes in bathrooms or closets. They're just too small and he likes plenty of space.

That hatching thing is pretty strange. Fudge says sometimes it isn't easy to have paternal feelings even when they look just like you. He still isn't convinced Noah is his.

Marjie said...

I stay out of the wet room, too. The one next to our kitchen also has "laundry stuff" in it, whatever that may mean. Your hatchling is a peculiar creature; DNA testing may well be in order.

Lastly, why didn't the workplace people want Momma surfing for funballs Pi Day stuff? The nerds would have been happy.


Ms. ~K said...

The hatchling is scary stuff for sure...and yellow?
Remember what MJ said, "The kid is not my son!"

Hey Dexter, you're looking good, hope you're feeling better!

Molly the Airedale said...

You definitely need Master to enlarge the bathroom for you, Mango. You almost tore the fur off your back on the sink - geez!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

The Black and Tans. said...

Mango we really would advise you to stay out of the bathroom, you might get shoved into the bath!

AS for the hatchling.... well that is truly scary!

Zona said...

Hi Bubba and Midget! Hehe... I loved your video!!!!

I'm embarrassed to admit I go in the wet room with mom ALL THE TIME! Phoenix and I go pretty much everywhere with her though. Now that Cali has taken to following mom around too (we think because of the baby?!) the bathroom is pretty crowded in the morning when she's washing up! BOL


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Mango Momma...

How lovely that we are going to be in-laws or something. I can recommend some excellent universities in Boston where the pup can be educated. It is fortunate we have so many to choose from.

The pup looks a bit like a duck. I don't think we have any of those on our side of the family. Perhaps it was a bit early to hatch and it's still gestating??

We will be up in the Spring to visit. And talk about preschools. The pasgetti and sauce on the counter would be lovely, thank you.

Most fondly,

Mrs. Mumsie Teacakes

Scooter said...

Hey Mango!
Wow, cool potty video! I love going in there with my mom...captive audience you know. I get scritches when she can't get away! Your mom should be glad that you want in there to keep her from getting bored while she is just sitting there. Remember the "I've fallen and can't get up" lady in her bathroom...you can help your mom...there'd be no room for her to fall over! BWAR HAR That egg scares me a little. Maybe it's a mini E.T.?!?

I twooly don't undewstand what the pwoblem is wif you and the squiwt going into the bafwoom. I think you make a vewy mundane pwocess totally enjoyabull fow youw Mom. As faw as the hatchling. I do see the wesemblance in the eyes to my BFF and little ones awe palew in the beginning, so I think it's quite obvious that you and Lacie have done the diwty, heheheh

I eskhort Mom in to the powdery room on the furst floor - then I station myself at the edge of it in the entryway -

I don't want her going anywhere without me noticing!

As fur the khrakhing hatchling, maybe woo should sell it -


The Thundering Herd said...

Dex - Midget, really? We saw the pained look in your eyes.

P.S. - We really don't try to follow the hu-dad into the bathroom. He can walk around the house and we ignore it. Until he touches cellophane, operates the ice maker, or goes anywhere near the closet where our bully sticks are stored.

houndstooth said...

The wet room is a no dog zone here, too, but that's fine with us because it's where the dreaded baths happen! *shudder*

Dex, you'd be a giant next to us! Don't take all that midget talk!

I think it's possible you're hatching an alien in that egg! Proceed with caution -- the fate of the world may rest in your paws!


Deborah said...

Mango, does your Mom have an outhouse?

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
It looks very small for you, Dexter and mom at the same time!
Hmmm.... the bathroom in my house is sooooo small... that it even does not have a door! So, I can go there freely!
I am not so sure I'd have good feelings for whatever that thing is either!
Kisses and hugs

you totally need a bigger bathroom! i love hangin' out with mama while she's dryin' her hair or puttin' on her makeups in the mornin'!

Khady Lynn said...

Samuel is good at nudging the door open to the bathroom if it's not closed all the way. But, then again, he has actually shut himself in the bathroom on more than one occasion when he goes in there, nudges the door shut to look at himself in the mirror on the back of the door, and then can't get the door open again.

I think that egg thingy looks kinda creepy.


tula monstah said...

dear bubba & pea, now if she'd only let woo use the toilet! geesh.

oh from FAD after watching the alien hatchling video.. she says, and woo don't have time fur walkies becawz??? (cackle cackle cackle)


kissa-bull said...

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Mama has been away a few days, so we are WAY behind in reading blogs. First, we're sorry to read the Pea caught a diseased tick and we hope he's feeling better. Abby had a diseased tick last year, even though mama puts the flea & tick repellant on all year around. Mama has also read about doggies in the southwest and midwest getting heart worms even though they have been on preventative year around [like we are]. Mama is afraid the ticks and heart worms are becoming resistent to the preventative medications. And she's afraid the Big Pharma industry is dropping the ball about developing new preventatives.

What is with that egg thing? It looks like a miniature Nessie. After it's hatched, maybe you should send it back to it's 'mother' to rear. There are schools in PA, too, we've heard. Abby says don't pay a penny in monster support without that paternity test, alhough it's pretty clear to us it's not even of the canine persuasion, much less a demi-mastiff.

Maybe the new suite in the basement has a Mastiff-sized wet room? Jed likes to guard the door whenever mama is in the wet room. He lies right in or in front of the doorway, depending on whether the door is opened.

We're so sorry to read the news about Joe Stains. We will visit Ike's website.

Mack and Mia said...

Mango, don't even fret about not being able to fit in that wee-wee room. Really, woo don't even wanna be in there!! TRUST ME!! When my dad is in there I don't even WANT to try to get in!!

and one last thing, Dude, Is that really YOUR spawn? You are a w-e-i-r-d-o.

Wags and woofs,
Mack and Mia

I think you need to tell your Pop that YOU need a Throne Room of your own!

KB said...

Our dogs LOVE to barge into bathrooms... even when guests are here! One time, my nephew (3 yrs old at the time) screamed from the bathroom "Moooooom, R licked my butt!". Lemme tell you, the screaming continued!

Definitely need DNA testing... That "thing" ain't no Mango.

FiveSibesMom said...

Mango, there's plenty of room in there for you! And how graceful you are in your movements...midget? Yep, we heard her call Dexter "midget." Te-hee. You guys are just too cute!

PS - the hatchling does look like a creepy alien thing - you guys are so good - I think the Sibes would have grabbed it right out of its watery nest!

K9 Katastrophie said...

We have some awards for you on our blog!


Kari in Alaska said...

Mango, you like like a tiger in that movie!


Princess Patches said...

Mango, you need to get master to increase the size of your bathroom! I'm pretty sure it's descrimation since you can't fit. We ALWAYS go into our small BR when Mom goes in, but it's weird...we hardly ever show up when she goes into the BIG BR!

Your hatchling is looking very scary! I would definitely opt for the DNA test, if I were YOU!

Mack said...

We are gonna have to view the videos at home cause our mom's crummy job won't allow YouTube.
So we know just how ya feel. And we three are so afraid to go into the bathroom cause we might get a bath!

Levi said...

I see a bathroom project!

Mom doesn't let me in either. Even though it's big enough.

Mom has a lot of restrictions at work too and can't always view everything.
Have missed you guys :) Glad to know Dexter is doing better!

Unknown said...

Oh Mango - I have the same problem as you! In fact, your bathroom looks bigger than the one we have in this new house - I can't even really turn around in mine! Can you imagine when I need to go in there for my BATH?!

Oh - and what IS that weird thing in the bowl of water?!!! I can see I've been missing out on some creepy happenings on the estate! Gah! It looks like something out of X-files...
