Wednesday Movie Time by Dexter - Mango the Bully

Dexter done!

P.S. Get over to Jack's blog here. His new cookbook is out and it features a recipe by ME, Dexter! Oh and regarding the RH's date... be patient. He doesn't move so fast as I am sure you gleaned from the movie.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Dream Date Winner!

Friends, trying to decide amongst all those beautiful gals was too much pressure for the Mango so when Momma offered to help me do a random draw, I was most relieved.

Are you ready? Here goes... (please ignore idiot lab wandering around during MY movie)


Yoiks! She is totally a huge dog dancer. I am going to need to brush up on my moves.

Cinnamon! Send me a peemail, OK?

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Introducing my Dream Date Contestants

Well, the Mango was overwhelmed by all the lovely gals who want to date me and I seriously would like to squire each and every one of you about town. However, momma says I can only choose one which is straining my mentals for sure (something about photoshopping and limited time and blah, blah, blah, blah).

So here they all are and I put linkies to their posts in their names so that you can read them as well. I am going to take the day to consider my options.

Miss Sugar is the queen of getting what she wants and apparently has transformed her humans into snack dispensing machines. I could certainly learn a lot from her regarding household management.

These two gals are most energetic and they actually took me on a pre date date which I found both exhausting and exhilarating. But one wonders... can the Mango survive a second outing?

Pretty Girl is so big and fluffy and beautiful. I bet she would be a great snuggler which is one of my most favorite activities.

Miss Darwin is so athletic! She goes on many long hikes of distances more than the grueling half miles to which I am accustomed. Would I be able to keep up with her?

I've known Paris for a long time and, frankly, am a little bit afraid of her.

I doubt the three of these gals together weighs as much as my head. That said, there would be plenty of room for them in my bed and they would not try to steal my foodables.

Poor Niamh endured the grooming torture just to look beautiful for her post. Niamh, darling, it was totally worth it. You look fab!

What's not to love about a well muscled gal with a big blocky head? Plus, she has a heart on her bottom. Seriously. Read her post if you don't believe me.

Miss Mabel! That water looks mighty fine. I would love to do the water therapy with you.

Cinnamon is an expert dancer and she can even go backwards! No doubt we would tear up the carpet together (and maybe do some dancing too - hehehe).

I am just getting to know Miss Snoopy. Can you believe her outfit? Understated yet so alluring.

Miss Shasta offered to help me locate the noms which frequently fall out of my large and storing leaves and twigs in them jaws. Now, that would be handy.

Oh the horror! Beastie! Don't you have enough on your plate with that Bambi who has been coming on to your estate and shaking his dangly bits at mumsie?

I am thinking I might have found the perfect partner for my next ballet. Plus she looks like me, only blond!

My mentals could explode for sure!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Nothing Much and Two Short Movies

I want to apologize for not reading or commenting too much lately. It seems that momma will be moving to a new job in the work place in a few weeks (more about that some other time). But recently, she has been secretly working on projects for her new boss whilst simultaneously doing all the things she has to for her old boss. All of which has left her already watery mentals even further depleted. Sigh. Poor me!

So for your entertainments, here are a couple of somewhat uninspired movies from yesterday.

First up, PeeWee spots a turkey on his walkie! There used to be a whole gang of turkeys, but now there is only one because either he is a loser and his gang ditched him or the coyotes ate the rest.

Did you see the Pea just standing there like a fool? What kind of bird dog is that?

Now in this movie, I am waiting patiently for the Pea to return from his walkie having already exhausted myself on a vigorous half mile march. As you can see, I am almost even too tired to get off the observation deck.

I like to smack the midget in the head now and then for no apparent reason other than to remind him who is the big dog.

Check out his clown collar. He has to wear that even at dusk because he is all black and hard to see, especially by distracted cell phone talking motorists in a big fire rush to get home from the work place (actually, I have a clown collar too, but at least mine is a manly orange color).

He is also really annoying all standing right where I want to be and needs a head butt to move aside.

And thus I descend the stairs with grace to greet the DOH.

But I am seriously exhausted and a little dizzy from reading about all the gals who want to date me. Oh dear. I will post all the entries for your reading pleasure tomorrow.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Cracker dog Loki left me some very helpful dating tips. You can read about them here. Thanks, buddy.

Dancing with the Dog Stars Results and Date Update

Miss Honey posted the results of the DWTDS competition and you can read all about it here.

I didn't win, but I don't feel badly about it because the competition was really stiff and I enjoyed every single movie and watched them all several times.

What I did win is a special prize called "Against all Odds." You know why? Because I was just starting my phenobarbital when the contest was happening and I was really dizzy a lot of the time and would kind of fall over and get confused. But Momma worked very hard to make my routine easy with no sudden moves and I think we did pretty well. Thanks so much to Honey for running this contest.

Oh, and by the way, you know who I voted for? Miss Emma! Her dance was just about the most beautiful thing I have every seen.

Now, about my dream date.... I have received many entries and let me tell you that you ladies are all wonderful. I want to choose you all, but momma says that I cannot. Boo hoo. I will post all the entries on Sunday and then let you know the results on Monday as I will most certainly be too exhausted on Sunday to post after I spend the day reviewing entries.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. No seizure monster for about seven weeks now, so keep your paws crossed.

What is it Wednesday?

First, some notes about winning a dream date with my large and promising not to tell if you are already in a relationship self....
  • To officially enter you need to write and post a blog about why you would be my ideal dream date and then let me know before midnight on Saturday June 25th
  • You can live anywhere in the world because it's a virtual date like my date with Pumpkin
  • Size and age do not matter. Goodness, the Mango loves all the gals; big, small, young, old, whatever

And now back to our regularly scheduled post.

Hmmm... what do you suppose this is?

Does this help? Still unsure?

It's my snooter! Hehehe.


Of course under normal circumstances, that hole in the deck table would have my shade umbrella in it, but some humans are just too lazy to carry the umbrella down from the barn.

And what with the table being made of glass and all one does worry that the refracting lights through it could act as a magnifying device and cause the spontaneous combustions.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Your Dream Date - a contest of sorts

Let's face it, the Mango doesn't get out much. In fact with the exception of my brief yet curiously fatiguing perambulations up and down my street or trips to the spa or the vet or sometimes school, I just plain don't leave the estate.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the estate. It has everything a mastiff could want; food, sunshine, funballs training in the yard, and, of course, momma and master (oh yeah, and Pea I suppose).

But every now and then I yearn for an adventure... a really big adventure... a relentlessly huge adventure.

That is why, I, Mango, have decided to offer some lucky doggie or kitteh gal the chance for a dream come true. That's right... a date with ME! You heard it! Yup, I will squire one of you about town via the wonders of PhotoShop. Now who wouldn't jump at an opportunity like that?

So, if you are a girl doggie or kitteh and have always dreamed of spending time with my large and loving the ladies self, now is your chance. Just write a postie about why you would make the ideal date for the Mango by midnight on Saturday, June 25th and leave a comment so that I know you have posted. Then, one week from today, I will choose the winner and away we go!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

WOW! I can't believe it! The DWTDS competition is ready for viewing.
There are 30 entries! So you will need to take your time and watch them all and then vote for your favorite which will obviously be, well, you know... hehehe.

Click here to start having fun!

I am totally loving watching all my pals and some new friends having fun with their humans. Thank you Honey and Hsin-Yi so much for hosting this competition.

To vote, you need to scroll down to the bottom and leave your info in Honey's extra top secret comment box.

Just to remind you how hard it is to teach the humans to dance, here are our bloopers.

Idiot PeeWee's mistakes are all documented here.

My ballet bloopers are here (note, every one is really momma's fault, but I won't tell).

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Momma has been playing fast and loose with the mark all as read button lately. I guess we have been busy. Sigh.

WTF Wednesday - Fashion Foe Pa and a "little" Something Else

If queried regarding my short walkies of late, momma will likely tell you that it is due to my large and having limited endurance self not tolerating the heat.

That could hardly be further from the truth as I am a robust dude, capable of vigorous strolls of upwards of one whole half mile.

No, the fact is, that the reason I demure on walkies during the summer months is......



That's right! The foolish woman has taken to wearing a bandanana under her hat. And not just any bandananana, but this most seasonably incorrect Halloween gem.

She claims that it keeps the sun off her neck and the flapping helps keep bugs away.

Are you freakin' kidding me? You never heard of sunblock or bug spray? The Mango is mortified.

Given that the neighbors have yet to comment, I have little doubt that she is smugly thinking that they have deemed her most clever and will soon be donning do rags of their own. Idiot woman. I fear that this has crossed a line and she will soon shamelessly wear her gnat hat off the property. Oh help!

And in other news...

Several alert readers commented that there was a little something missing from last week's word bubble Wednesday post...

Those ain't neuticles, that's the real deal!

Whilst other doggies...


Hey! It's ALL Mango... it's ALL good.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Garden Gnome

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. My pal and fellow full sized doggie, Pooka, got very bad sickies and even though they don't know why, he is home from the emergency room and feeling better but he could sure use some relentlessly huge blogland vibes. You can visit him here.

Word Bubble Walkies

Oh Happy Day by Dexter

I've been feeling kind of put out lately. First the evil witch "forgot" to sign me up for agilities so now I have to wait six whole weeks for the next class.

Then she has been short changing me on walkies and tennis ball because she says "it is too hot."

And finally she told me I am not going to daycamp this week because it is, you guessed it, "too hot" for me to have funballs and visit with my pals.

So I was ready to pack my bags and seek more a labrafriendly estate, when......

The BEST DAY OF THE YEAR! The cement pond next door opened for business!

That's right! Just me and Spidey having a grand old time. I am filled with labrajoy! To burst!

What trip into the refreshing water would be complete without the requisite labradorable pool side pose?

I am finally wet! And momma said I can go back again tomorrow!

Guess I'm staying after all.

Oh dear. Some doggies just aren't made for the water and they do resist the hose even though it is good for them. I was worried that the RH was going to burst into flames from the heat.

You think this is funny? Wait until it gets really hot and Momma grabs him and hoses off his belly. Hehehe.

Dexter done!
