Gifts from Mango and Moco

February 1 /09

My fabulous friend, Mango, sent me a big box loaded with goodies last week all the way from Texas, USA. A box addressed to ME. I was so excited I was practically turning cartwheels. I just couldn't wait to open it - I'm sure I was the most excited dog on earth!

Inside the box was a bag filled with the most amazing red and white toys. There were two tennis balls, a football, two tuggies, a plush ball, a rubber ball, and two squeakies. There was also a bag of rawhide sticks, and get this: a huge stuffy bear!! I was so happy I didn't know what to play with first. I was jumping from toy to toy and it was hard for me to settle down and pose with all my new stuff, but finally I did.

Will you just look at all these toys? Real big-boy size too... am I lucky or what?


Wait til I get you to the park, little red football ... I am so going to play with you!

And if all these toys weren't enough, he also sent me this fantastic sweater. It fits me perfectly and I feel very handsome in it. I'm definitely going to wear it when I go for long winter walks.

Is this the most dude-iciously sexy sweater you ever saw? And it matches my socks!

ZMango also sent a Texas magnet for my fridge and a Boxer nail file ... I guess for Mama's nails because there's NO WAY she's filing my nails with that thing. Wasn't that just so thoughtful of Mango? What a guy.


Oooh. I picked up some yummy Mangosmell all over the bear. At first I thought it might be Mango Suds but it didn't smell Mastiff at all. It was unmistakably Maltese. I got right to work putting this fuzzy guy out of commission. His nose was off in less than 10 minutes. I'm doing his eyeballs tomorrow. I can't wait.

If you want to learn how to multi-task with a whole bunch of toys, I've learned all the moves and I'm going to show them to you. Just arrange your toys in one place, then roll on your back so that you can make them squeak underneath you. That leaves your paws free to grab another toy. And you can use your nose to roll a ball around too. Observe:

I know you're so cute, Mr. Stuffybear, but I have to bite your nose off.

Thanks so much, Mango. You've made me so happy. And I'm glad that you were happy with the stuff I sent you. We're definitely buddies forever!

I also got this Boxer calendar from MocoY. She ordered one from Legacy Boxer Rescue and got two by mistake. So she was sweet enough to send me one. Thanks, Moco. You are the best girl and one of my oldest and dearest friends.

Mango said...

Chef, I think that bear made you a little cracker dog or are you possibly working on a tumbling routine with him? That mini-Mango sure sent you some great stuff.

Chef!What fantastic presents from Mango and SooooO many. Isn't he the best. No wonder you didn't know what to attack first. The sweater is fab - Ruff Lauren? You looked very debonair. And the teddy deserves what's coming hee hee! Enjoy pal.

Moco said...

I am feeling sorry for that bear. You are going to have to move on to all those red and white toys.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Haha! I have waited for this, Chef, you made my day!
Whew! that sweater, my mom drove to 6 pet stores then went back to the third one to pick that up, my mom was looking for xl size but she couln't find the right size, she was hoping it would stretch to fit you. You look so cool in that, my mom said just looking at you wearing it, it worthed the driving, let alone it matched your socks too, what a catch!
I'm so glad that you loved your gifts, my pleasure to send it to you. I did enjoy your gifts as well but truly your friendship and your care and thoughtfulness that touched me deeply!
My mom pulled my dad to watch the clips, they oooh and ahhh the whole time then...they looked at each other then looking at us then they realized that none of us have the talent roaching and playing and tossing toys simultaneously like you did!
By this time, your bear must have crossed the bridge already, my mom just let me have one sniff and put it in the gift box for you. Did you read the magnet, Chef, it's funny and very Texan, isn't it?Hey, I'm my mom's house alarm, loud and annoyed, hehe!
Sweet dream, Chef, definitely we're best bloggers friend furever!

Chef, as much as we admire your stretchy circus agility and antics, we're a tad jealous that you made our mom laugh so much and go "aawweee hims sooo cuuute!" cuz really, that stuff should be reserved for US.

OK we love you anyways... now send us your toys! :-D

Chef, rock in that sweater. Let me tell ya! You are a sight for sore eyes. I wouldn't wear that outside cause you won't get anything done with all the girlies chasing you.
And you can move too!
You impress me Chef. Can you be my idol?
pee ess. Mango is a good dog, for sure.
