Dog Day Afternoon

What'cha doing today?
We're heading to the pool, look what my mom dresses us.
Overprotective and underestimate my swimming skill!

I still look handsome, most handsome of three!

Just add water!

I think Chubs hollers for help!

Ximui's having an anxiety attack!

And me, stay cool under the burning Texas sun!
Crystal, I'll swim over the Pacific ocean to meet you some day baby!

Meet Sharpie, our lifeguard, he loves to eat hot dogs!
Ooops, look like he's chasing us!
Omigosh, are you that hungry, Sharpie?

And finally, meet Star, a new lovely Maltese pup in Arlington, Texas.
Isn't she super cute, cool and stylist? Her smile melts our hearts!
Please head over to her blog to extend a big warm welcome hug to her and her brother Riley.
Again, her blog:

Until next post, cheers!

You are so very brave in the water Mango!!!

We love Star (and Riley) she wears the most awesome pearls!!


Mango said...

That lifeguard looks more dangerous than the Lacie Beast.

I am glad you wear your life jacket. I wish they came in my size.


Gus said...

wow..we love the pool. And we are glad your mom uses those jackets, because we know that sometimes it is hard for little doggies (like you guys and Teka) to get out of the water.

have a good swim

Daisy said...

I am glad you wear your flotation device so you stay safe. I'm not sure if you can count on that life guard...


Wow! What a post, Mango.

I love the way you showed my picture. I am so impressed! If you didn't have a girlfriend I would give your a run for your bisquits! How did you do that??? And with bubbles too!

Thanx so much for introducing me and Riley to all your nice doggie friends. We can't wait to meet them.

You are so kind and a true Texas Gentleman. Awwwh.

We luv the pictures of you and your brothers swimming in the pool and all decked out in red jackets.

Ya'll are three cool dudes! Wow, you guys sure know how to throw a pool party and with bubbles too!

Guess what? my mommy goofed again!(no surprise to us!!!)

We were sooo proud of her for making us a guestbook but then she couldn't figure out HOW TO GET THE DANG THING ON OUR BLOGGING PAGE!!!

And if that's not bad enough, she has our faces on YOUR map THREE TIMES!!! I could just die! Riley wants to fire her and get a new Agent. I'm with him!

Do you think your sweet mommy would help my silly mommy with this humilating problem? She's too embarraced to ask, AS WELL SHE SHOULD BE!!! AHVEY!

Once again, thanx so much for everything and for being such a cool friend.

Luv ya,
Star and Riley.

Mango, you're the man and my best friend! Tell your mommy that she is a doll and me and Star luv her! Maybe she could be our new agent?


Thanks soo much!

Hi Mango,

I think you guys look SOOOO cute in your life-jackets!! And you're so lucky to be able to go swimming in a pool...I have never been in a swimming pool in my life! (Althoguh I don't think they make doggy lifejackets big enough for me - hee! hee!)

Honey the Great Dane

Well that looked like fun!! Guess what? WHen I went to my Earthdog competition I brought my boot with me that you gave us and played with it in the car until I got there!! So I thought of you!! And you brought me good luck!!! Love and kisses A+A


Hi Mango,

Just wanted you to know that we have been making some really nice friends since you introduced us on your blog. Thanx!

Also, my mommy thinks she knows why our Guestbook doesn't appear on our blog. She clicked on HELP and apparently, you have to create a Group first to have a Guestbook. She will look into that when she has more time.

She knows your mommy is very busy too so not to worry, she'll sort it all out later but thanks your mommy so much!

We have been lazy little doggies all day. Well time for another snooze.

Luv ya Dude,
Riley and Star.

Matilda said...

Hi Mango!
You guys are so Cool! Did you enjoy swimming?


Hi Mango,
Good Grief! How did you know all that? I'm not sure even Bill Gates would be able to figue that out!

Anyway, I got all the way down to Paste code and save without a hitch but on my page, there is no "Guestbook Gadget" at the bottom just "Add a gadget" and it doesn't drag. I'm not quite sure what to do from there and I almost had it!

I hate being such a pest. If you would like, you could email me and I would be happy to call you if that's easier. Which ever you prefer. I clicked on help again but no luck there.

You are such a dear and I appreciate your help and kindness so much!


Guess what? I got it! Yeah! No one in this house was going to sleep tonight until I did!

I had neglected to type in the Title and then drag it up, that was the problem.

Mango, you are my hero! Thank you, thank you so much! I couldn't have done it without you.

Now you can be the first to sign our Guestbook!

We'll be looking for it.
Riley and Star.


Hi Mango my man,

Wow! What a fun surprize Star and I found in our Guestbook this morning. Were you guys up all night having a book signing party?

What a beautiful family you have. Star thinks your brother are CUTE!

Star and me have never been to Richardson, but now I think we know the whole town!

We have a nephew named Cisco and he is a Chocolate Lab. I think he's a giant cause he's so big and tall but we are not afraid and we luv him! And I know he will want to sign your Guestbook too.

Tell you mommy we luv her and thanx a million dude, for being such a great friend!

Love ya man,
Riley and Star.

Life With Dogs said...

I'm not sure I'd let Sharpie "rescue" me if I were you! :)

Zoey Kow said...

wow swimming looks cool!

Deetz said...

Star is very cute!
Those water pics of you are fantastic!

Anonymous said...

Hi Mango,

Looks like you all had a great time swimming and so cute to.

I am on my way to say hello to Riley & Star.

Woo Woo, Tessa

Maggie and Mitch said...

Look at you guys swimming around in that huge pool! That looks kinda scary to us!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Petra said...

I'm not so sure about that jacket, Mango. Do you squirm when you have to put it on? I HATE it when my harness goes on before my walks; it scares me!

What a fun time swimming you had, though. And you were safe!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Swimming sounds wonderful! And with the life jackets, you don't even have to paddle.



Hey Mango,

Well, mommy did it again, she sent you a message on OUR blog! She just can't seem to get it through her pea size brain that this AIN'T EMAIL...it's BLOGGER!!!!!! Ahvey! Just ignore it.

That's a good price for orchids, tell your mommy, my mommy said thanx!

We are having lot's of fun meeting new doggies. Boy you sure are popular! And so is Star! We need to put a leash on her!

Have a wonderful weekend and stay cool dude.

Luv ya,
Riley and oh yeah, Miss. Queen of the Prom over here, Star.

Joe Stains said...

I would probably sink like a rock to the bottom if we had a pool. I would definitely want a life jacket! you are super brave!!

Twinkle a.k.a Chicken Little said...

Hey Mango, no doubt you are the most handsome.

Im wearing my summer collar and I went to groomer. I look young and summer now. lol


Good morning Mango,

Oh, you're so sweet! Yes, you may join us for tea anytime... tea and doggie bisquits!

By the way, we have been wandering and wandering, how did you get you name, Mango? Were you born in Hawaii? My mommy loves Hawaii.

Well, we hope you have a great Sunday. Mommy needs her coffee now, she's starting to growl!

Star and Riley.

JB's Big World said...

I would be having major anxiety and a heart attack in the water!!!
But you all look very cute, especially you, Mango.
Star looks like a nice doggie...thanks for introducing us to her!

Twinkle a.k.a Chicken Little said...

Ops..you saw my love letter to Goofy!!! ssshhhh~~!!!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh Mango, without doubt, you are the handsomest (shhh don't tell Ximui and Chubbs, will ya?)

Wow.. a doggie with pearls.. Hershey is all excited to go over and meet her and find out where she got her pearls!

Nellie and Calvert said...

Mango ~ we are your new admirers and look forward to following all your adventures.

That swimming thingy looks fun and exciting.... you're so very brave!

Nellie & Calvert

Momo and Pinot said...

Mango dear friend!!!

What a nice post!! Our summer had been very dark and wet until not long ago... We feel like moving to TX and enjoy the water with you guys!

We meant to visit you much earlier but thank you very much for your barkday wishes for our brudder a day before his big day!! That was VERY nice and you made us smile! We were busy for a past few days and we haven't organized photos but we'll keep you posted soon!! And one more thank you for telling me that you had a package. We'll be looking forward to its arrival!! :) :)

Momo & Pinot


Hey Mango my man,

Did you know that Sassy Sasha (Chicamom85)has started a wonderful story about Unicorns and all her friends are helping her write it. Even us!

You might want to run over there and join the fun. It ends on Wednesday so hurry up, we need your help to finish it.

Hope to see you over at Sasha's.

Love ya man,

Riley and Star.

Twinkle a.k.a Chicken Little said...

Oh Mango, you got me with that "Hey You Eat Some Cookies"..I kept looking at my pic wondering if I left some cookies on my beard. lol

a very good one buddy!!

chicamom85 said...

Hi little Mango, My Mom got a little too excited and finished the story early, but we just went back and wrote you in. Thank you for visiting and being part of my story.

licks and sniff, Sasha


Hi Mango,

Boy, have we been missing you!

Yes, Sasha's story did end earlier. On Sunday's post it says that it will run till Wednesday.

We are so sorry, we thought that maybe you knew about it but when we didn't see your name on Monday, we realized maybe you did'nt.

We noticed that her site was just flooded with comments on Sunday but slowed down quite a bit on Monday and today. That may be why. I'm not really sure???

Next time when something like this comes up, we'll be sure to let you know right away!

Hope you are having a fun week!

Love ya lots!

Riley and Star.

Aki and Poopie said...


again, you are making me envious... I miss the water already! waaaahh..

This is the very reason why you are perfect for Crystal.. you are both water dogs..

Better practice hard and without the life vests though. you dont want Crystal to be the one saving you without it.. hehe..

we missed you!!

drooly kisses,



Dear Mango,

Our mommy just did it again! That's it, we're putting an add in the paper today for a new mommy!

She blames it on not having her coffee yet but we know better!

CAUTION: When you checking out the dishwasher, don't get your head caught in the door, talk about a bad hair day!

We luv ya lots!
Your pals,
Riley and Star.

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Mango...of course we can be friends. You are very cute and I'm sure you are sweeter than Mangos. Both our names begin with MA... we must be destined to be friends. Thanks for stopping by. What a coincidence my mom has a friend who is owned by two PUGS, Lindy and Stella. I love the water pictures on your post. You are a good swimmer. Does the chlorine make your eyes red? :-)
Big Meow Madi


Hey Mango!

Yes, they do sell mommys on Ebay but they cost too much money.

Our mommy is cheap! Ooops, I mean cheaper. Oh shoot! What I really meant was...oh, never mind.

Yes, please do send us a picture. I bet it's grrreat!


See ya soon,



Hi Mango,

Cute picture and pretty yard. Is that yoour chariot?

Yes, our mommy luvs orchids and other flowers too but daddy always forgets to water them when she's gone and they all died!

So she is giving up on them while it is so hot.

Mommy tried to reply to your mommy's email but there was no return address????

Riley and Star.

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Mango...Happy Friday,
Madi and I wanted to drop by to wish you a good weekend,
Madi and Mom

Snowy and Crystal said...


this very early morning, a stranger rang the bell! We woofed our heads off because we almost never get visitors THAT early, then went with uncle as he was heading to the gate.... as we got closer and closer to the gate, we were able scent a very familiar hooman.. At that second, even before the gate was opened, our barks changed its tone from a *there is a stranger outside - alarm barks* to *THAT IS SOMEONE WE KNOW - we are so excited - OPEN UP THE GATE as soon as possible* bark tone ...... The second the gate was opened, we dived into OUR MOMMY's arms......... hugs, kisses, hugs and kisses was what we got from me. WILDEST greetings is what she received from us beside of our licks licks. MOMMY IS HOOOOOOOOOOME!!!!!!! WOHOOOO! she told us that she escaped that trip plan (which wasn't going so well in the first place) and took the first flight back home! With us is where mommy want and always wanted to be.

Everyone is still SO EXCITED with mommy's return. It is 1:00 am here yet we are NOT asleep yet! *hehe* thought of letting you know ..

and yippeee that means that we can check on you more often. What a fun post you have here - seems like you had a VERY FUN time with your brothers (yeah, mango, you sure are the most handsome) but so nice of them to appear in your bloggie. We enjoy reading their updates too ...



p.s. we also received TONES of pressies from mommy. Oh boy, we wonder when will we get the time to post about them all.

Dino and Family said...

You guys look nifty in your red life jackets! And Star....awwww....so so pretty!!! Have a lovely weekend! Love, Dino


Hi Mango,

Please stop by our blog. We have a surprise for you!

Sriley and Star.

Thor said...

Hi Mango!
You sure had so much fun in the pool! Glad you´re wearing your life jackets. Be careful with your lifeguard!


Raising Addie said...

Hi Mango!!!

What have you been up to??!!

We bet you have been having a LOT of fun!

Your swimming pictures are a lot of fun! Hope you are staying cool!

Chasing my tale...
Addie, Lucie, and Hailey


Well it's about time we heard from you! We were beginning to think you moved to the Bahamas! We sure have missed you!!!

Your new picture is beautiful!!! And you look mighty handsome, dude.

Wait til Crystal sees it, we can see her little tail wagging right now!

Well, tell your mommy that we are anxious to know what you have been up to lately.

Glad you are back!

Luv your buddies,
Riley and Star.


Hi Mango,

Thanx for ask'n about a photo for our header. You're kidding, right? You ought know our mommy by now! She can't do squat!(that's our job. he, he!)

She would LUV your mommy to help her with that. She tried yesterday but couldn't figure it out OF COURSE!

But she does know about DWB, that's how we found you. She signed us up weeks ago, but we're still not on there! Go figure??? She is going to try again. AHVAY!!!

Thank goodness for friends!

Luv ya lots,
Riley and Star.



QUICK! You gotta check this out before mommy takes it off. She followed your directions and look what she did! She is on the floor, histarically laughing but we don't think it's funny at all!

So hurry cause she going to edit it in a minute.




I tried 18 times but the silly thing was still HUMUNGUS! I finally just gave up and deleted it.

These poor puppies.


Now that really isn't funny. I'm laughing so hard, tears are running down my face!



How bout if I CLEAR ALL EDITS, would that delete everthing I have ever edited before or just today's edits? I just see me wiping out my whole blog!


o.k. either I'm delirious or blind or both but there is no html java script showing on my layout page. How do I get to it?

At first this was funny but now it's rediculous!

Deefor said...

I wouldn't trust that lifeguard... Thanks for the info about the picture. My mom got one up but I think she needs to work on it some more.



Well, I got it somewhat back to the way it was and that's it, I'm done!



That's okay, I just need to leave it alone for a while.


Riley and Star.

Sunny said...

Hey Mango! Haven't seen you in a while. Just wanted to say hi!

Pippa said...

Hello Mango, looks like you are having a good summer holiday.


Snowy and Crystal said...

Oh Mango, our photographer was NOT happy with her client who happens to be my brother. There was supposed to be a new post a couple of days ago. We went to the groomers the day before so we wooked super cool and all ready for mommy's photo-shoot. Mommy decided to take the pic in the garden (she wuvs natural light). She was setting the mini studio - working a lil more harder while I was watching. Then, all of a sudden we both heard a big splash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SNOWY WENT SWIMMING IN THE POOL and messed everything up. He had to be washed, dried, brushed, ear cleaned AGAIN. By the time this was over, the sky was dark ...
so lets see when will we try this once again (keeping Snowy indoors until the mini studio is set)

Snowy and Crystal said...

there are other pictures that were quickly taken right after mommy's return but we don't want for them to be posted in our bloggie..we wanna take better ones :)

Momo and Pinot said...

Hi Mango.. just checking in how you're doing!

Thanks so much for your barkday wishes! Humans grown up so so fast!

Momo & Pinot

Emma and Emmy said...

Hello Handsome Mango,

You are the MOSt handsome lifeguard. ^_^

Dino and Family said...

Dearest Mango, Just dropping by to see how you are. Thanks for all your nice comments on my blog. You are so sweet! Muah, Dino


Hey Mango,

Love the life vests. When you get ready to swim accross the ocean, can I go with you? I miss Snowy just like you miss Crystal.

Thanks for helping Boca!!


Honey the Great Dane said...

Hi Mango - thanks for your lovely comment about my humans' anniversary! And hey - I like your new header picture!

Chef ·˙ ۛ ♥ said...

I'm glad you're all safe in the swimming pool, Mango because that lifeguard makes me a little nervous. Are you sure he's certified??


The Animal Doctor said...

Mango, thanks for visiting our bloggy! WE love you!

Moy and Trudis

Rambo said...

Hi Mango!!
You had a fun day at the pool until that big black think tried to eat you. The nerve!
I love your swimming vest. You are the most handsome for sure.
Me and Midget missed you!


Hi Mango,

Hey what's cook'n man? Are you getting to swimming a lot in your beautiful pool?

Stay cool!

Luv ya,
Riley and Star.

Snowy and Crystal said...

oh Mango, I have my mommy, her cuddles, hugs, belly rubs, kisses, walkies, stuffed toy games back again now..I sure started smiling big when all that happened again. I al loving it ^_^

Snowy here :
psssst, Mango, buddy, I have a little secret:
behind the camera, mommy puts me on a topknot kindda style (just like Crystal) all the time. I don't get pink bows though - only a simple rubber band that holds my hair up...The hair doesn't block my eyes. In front of the camera, I take it off. One reason is to help the ones who receive our pictures to easily tell us apart without having mommy to say anything.


Hi Mango!

Just wanted to tell ya to check our bloggie cause we have an award for you! Yippy!

Oh, and where have you been???

We bet you got married to your beautiful Crystal? If so, you're surrre take'n a long hunnymoon! Oooooh!!!

We miss you buddy,

Riley and Star.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

The Animal Doctor said...

Mango, when are you blogging next? I miss reading about your adventures.

lovelots, Trudis


Mango!!! Oh! We are sooo glad you are back! We missed you sooo, sooo much!

We thought you had fallen off the face of the earth and the thought of that, made our bones hurt! So, DON'T SCARE US LIKE THAT AGAIN!!!

Mommy had compooter problems last week and lost your address so she is glad you are okay and blogging again.

She acts like this is her blog insted of ours! What's up with that?

Any ways, Glad your okay and back again! Yahooo!

Luv ya,
Riley and Star.

Kenia Cris said...

Hi Mango, How are doing sweetheart?! Frodo is really excited about becoming friends with you because he doesn't know any Maltese, then he thought he could learn a lot about the way Maltese dogs deal with their annoying brothers, maybe he could learn some tricks to play on the his own brothers!!!!

I'm here to thank your for visiting Sixteen Paws and leaving such a nice comment. You're just lovely! You're in our 'love'-reading list, we're following you and we'll visit you whenever we discover you're in a new adventure.

Take care kiddo.. Much love from Brazil to you and your family!

Pedro said...


Is your mom on strike too? I think I've got my mom back to blogging but I don't trust her! Hope everything is good in your dawg house!


Sunny said...

Hey Mango! I have a question. Could you tell me how I can change the word comment to like how you said cheers? Im not doing that im just saying as in example.

Momo and Pinot said...

Hello our darling friend Mango!!!

OMD!! We are barkless!!! We really don't know how to bark THANK YOU to you, Chubs, Ximui and your mom!!! Our mom picked up the parcel last night and we were SO excited but for some reasons we weren't allowed to open it until now! We supposed she wanted to open it when our human pup was awake....

When we looked at the overralls, we had to say ahhhhhhhh so cute! and a photo frame with our pic made us smile. :) :) There are so mamy goodies... Ahh.. we just love the Kiss The Cook Guy! :)

Thank you very very VERY much!!

Momo & Pinot
