Goodbye Darling Mango

A very dear friend of ours has gone to the Bridge and we are in a true state of shock.His antics made us laugh and he was a dear friend. When he came to visit us(Flat Mango that is) he was the first and the ONLY boy that I ever ever let into my bomb shelter...... We know he is over the bridge dancing and playing and eating with all of our our other pals,in fact Bussie is showing his the ropes and Joey is flipping the cheeseburgers...It is those of us that are left behind that have the hardest task Pl2 told us to put this poem up and we think it is just right. It is a Navajo poem.....

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die. 
Mary Elizabeth Frye
God Speed dear boy We will miss you Your little Boston pals

A Day at the Hairdressers

So PL1 and2 decided they were done done done trying to groom me... Hee hee it seems I have developed a little AVERSION to grooming.... even brushing( lets see WHY WOULD THAT BE???) and I seemed to have developed a little "thing" about even being brushed( hee hee if you let a terrier get the upper hand you lose buddy) My BROTHER who is a little namby pamby LOVES getting groomed.. and stands there all smirky and stuff... and wags his tail( I always tell him he is not a REAL terrier and was left on the doorstep...but I can't say it too much or he starts to cry.... So this new joint opened up around the corner from where we live.... It is called Dirty Harry's... Yep it is a do it yourself wash your dog place. THEN she gets this thing in the mail that says.... We do hand stripping..... I tried as hard as I could to hide it,,,, BUT IT DIDN'T WORK...... She went to talk to the groomer Mr Andre... and he used to have a terrier.. and he said I couldn't be as bad as Pl2 said and that he was SURE he could groom me...........DOESN'T HE READ THIS BLOG???? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?????? below are ACTUAL pictures of my day of torture I mean at the hair dressers......

Here I am on the day... anxiously waiting.... paws crossed tapping my feet with nerves...I think my hair do looks FINE thank you very much...
Here I am doing a little doga before my appointment to calm me down......

doing a little meditation.......Pl2 was a nervous wreck It appears that she was more worried that I was going to bite Mr Andre than worried about me... After THREE hours she called to see how I was doing....(couldn't have been that worried she waited THREE hours to call. He said I was doing fine but that I kept flattening myself out on the table...Hee Hee DID HE THINK I WAS JUST GOING TO TAKE IT??? I AM A TERRIER FOR CRYING OUT LOUD........but that he had all of his fingers and both hands...( hee hee not for trying...)

Well here is the final result.... Not bad really...When he brought me out Pl2 was stunned.. her mouth dropped and she said(and I quote here) "She looks like a show dog!!!" LIKE I DIDN'T BEFORE??? I was snowy white and no gnarls.......

She kept trying to take pictures of me.....

I told Archie I told Mr Andre that I was really a Beddlington terrier so he cut my face like a little beddlington.. hee hee A little hairdresser terrier humor

My nails were not totally dry so I had to put them up( I picked a nice spring color)

I guess it wasn't as bad as I thought and I am feeling better.....


OK it wasn't that bad but I am going to flatten myself out every time... I mean really I can't just sit there and just take it... like other people I know....

He said I looked great HOW WOULD HE KNOW HE IS SLEEPING?

Here we are again. We have missed everyone . We would like to say it was a long hard winter but we only got snow twice( we were really sad but PL2 said she was a little happy Sure she doesn't stick her head in the snow and blow the snow out so why would she miss it?( Archie says maybe she does but we just haven't seen it.) We would like to present two ways to play with your toys.. My way and his way.. Decide which you like better...........

Of course after playing that hard one MUST take a nap.. This is the stare down nap...
Don't look at my scruffy appearance My next post will be my hair cut with Mr Andre
He is all squooshed up Note that blue thing It is PL1's shirt that he stole and brought to bed with him
I sort of fell off of the bed.. hee hee

Archie the show dog HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Hi everyone Ags here Wait till I tell you this one......

So PL1+2 were taking us out on our last evening walk( this picture is a reenactment cuz I didn't have the camera at that exact time. This was taken at the Arboretum. Nice crisscross action huh!) So we were walking and there was a guy on the other side of the street and he said"Hey is that dog a SHOW DOG?" I was turning every which way to see who he was talking about, well really I felt sure he was talking about me.....) and I see PL1 TALKING TO HIM! WHAT ARE YOU KIDDING ME?HE WAS TALKING ABOUT ARCHIE!(who was wearing his winter coat and every other step trying to shake it off.. Try that sometimes it does work to get it off..) And PL2 starts LAUGHING and says Him?
This kid with the stick up legs? 

And the stick up ears?

The sleeper extreme?

The naughtiest of the two of us( hee hee maybe,  not just saying)

The kid who stole PL1's shirt to take to bed with him?

The kid with the GIANT honker? Welllllll he could be,and really is in our eyes(PL2 made me put that part in so he wouldn't start crying...)
