Picture Time!

Good boy! Clean your plate! When is mama coming home? I’ll just wait here. What’s that new toy? Does it squeak?!? Are you going to play with me? Nobody wants to play with me. But, look at all my toys! Pick one and I’ll play with you! Are you ready to go to the park?…

Mango’s Mini Vacation

We took a vacation to Socal last weekend and it was really funny. Three incidents come to mind when thinking about my mini vacay. We are from Norcal and hardly ever get out to the southern part of the state so this was a real treat. On our way there, I was pulled over for…

He Just Won’t Let Go

Luckily, everything I’ve heard about Mango’s energy levels is true. People have told me not to worry about his rambunctious ways as it would level off when he turns 2. Mango turns 2 this Summer on July 20th. That is right around the corner. I am already planning a trip to Yosemite where he can…

Another Trip to the Doctors

  My nipple was itchy for a couple of weeks. I made sure to scratch myself really hard and made sure to do it in front of my dad because he always knows what to do. He looked at my nipple and told my mom to take me to the doctor. On top of this,…

Cats & Dogs

Today’s blog post is about pets and relationships in general. Does having a pet change the person you are and will become? I think all relationships in life change you. Every person you’ve ever met has had some sort of assistance in you evolution. Take for instance Mango’s cousin, Han Solo. He is an adorable…

Deer Trail & Fleas?

Mango loves this mountainous trail. The only problem is that it is hilly and there are deer that live there. When we first went there, he caught fleas. I took him to the vet where they told me this mountain has deer which carry deer fleas? I don’t know what that is, but we sure…

Mango’s New Bed

We just received Mango’s new bed today. It looks exactly like his very first one except for this one is the large size and so it’s rectangular shaped which is perfect because Mango has the standard dachshund build with a mixture Pug and Pomeranian face & neck. Mango, Look! Must be nice having 4 beds….

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…
