Play Ball!

Our family and dog trainer told us not to give Mango tennis balls because the felt was not good for his teeth; But he just LOVES them. No other ball will satisfy him quite as well. In the last year or so, we’ve given him maybe a dozen tennis balls that we end up throwing…

Mango Exercise

Today we did our regular routine of following human drive around town and then try to squeeze my walk in between. My human thinks it’s fun to drag me to the gym and make me watch while they sweat and struggle move for 15 minutes. “Can we finish my walk now?” “Are we done yet?”…

Doggie Dentist Part 3

Mango had to fast before his appointment. That means no chew sticks. No water. Not even a kibble! We hid it all, or tried to, behind door #2, below, which he quickly found and started his protest. “I’m not moving until you give me my stuff back!” At the Doggie Dentist, they had to put…

Doggie Dentist Part 2

Don’t be scared Mango. It’s going to be ok. “But I am scared.” It’s ok. Here comes the Doctor! Let’s sit up and pay attention. Poor little guy is shaking. Cute little belly! So, he may very well have cavities. Sad face for all of us. We’re going back Wednesday for a mouth cleaning. Hopefully…

Oh no! Doggie Dentist Time! Part 1

“But I don’t wanna go to the Doggie Dentist.” “Please don’t make me.” Come on Mango. We have to go. “No way!” Come on. We’ll pick you up some new toys if you come now! “New toys? I’m listening” Yay! We made it to the Doggie Dentist! It’s a bit frustrating to find this. Same…

I’m bored

What’s wrong Mango? “I’m bored” Go get a chew toy. “OK!! This one??” “Num! Num! Num! Num!” “Nummies!” “Oh no, It’s slipping!” “Dropped it.”   “What do I do?” Pick it up, silly! “I want another toy.” “Yep. This one will do for now.” “Now my candy cane chew stick!” “Yum! Yum! Yum! Yum!” Mango!…

Miss Puggy!

Mango made a friend for Christmas… Miss Puggy! He chewed a few threads to make the lip open so he could kissy kissy Miss Puggy!   I guess we can skip the “birds and bees” talk! While it looks like that’s what’s going on, he’s simply playing. Go Mango go!  

Stretchy Stretchy, and another walk?

Somebody ran off into his room, to his baby bed, of all places! There he is, half-asleep, glaring out the window. “You found me.” Once Mango see’s you there’s no chance he’ll stay sleeping. Sure enough, he’s getting up! Stretchy stretchy time! Mango’s milking this thing, getting tummy rubs, back scratches (we call them scritchies)…

My toys are here!

Well, not really toys. But, everything is potentially a Mango toy! Somebody’s super excited! Chewy.com order with his kibbles, treats and a couple outfits! He fell asleep on his little perch for a while which was nice so I could get a little work done. I put his new blanket up there, and it worked!…

Trailing

“Wait mom, they’re almost here” Yesterday we went to Mango’s favorite trail. At the beginning of our walk, he pulled me towards a guy walking 2 toy breed dogs. I think they were Yorkies. They were so cute. One was named Pebbles. The reason I remember Pebbles’s name is because she was super feisty. Every…
