Mango Product Alert!!

My Relentlessly Huge friend, the Mango, has posted about his dismay when he finds out about products made with his mangoness. So you can imagine my shock when I found out that Barbara has one of these dreaded mango products and she uses it regularly.
Burt's Bees Mango and Orange Body Butter! How did they make this? Did they melt the Mango? Did bees sting him? I cannot conceive how Barbara, who loves dogs, would use this product and rub it on her hands and arms.
I took a sniff of it myself and I was quite taken aback. I did not expect the Mango to smell sweet, and dare I say, girly??
I just don't know what to think.
Ambrose had no such scruples. He actually licked the Mango off Barbara's hand. Did he think that it was the same kind of butter that you put on bread? He is so disgusting.
I hope Mango is ok and has not suffered any ill affects from being made into hand cream.

A Wasted Bath

You all know how much I hate baths and all forms of dog grooming torture. On Friday, Barbara bathed me and used many evil implements on me. Even with lots of treats it is an awful experience. Barbara said that I had to get beautiful because on Saturday we were going to perform at the Dog Olympics at the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine. We performed there last year and got lots of applause. I was very excited because we have been practicing a new routine to demo there.
Well the bath was wasted!!! This morning we were all ready to go and the dog-crate-on-wheels had a flat tire! Major bummer. By the time it was repaired, it was too late. So now I am all groomed up with no where to go. In other news, last month Barbara went to NY and NJ to visit family. Ambrose and I were happy to go to K9 Kindercare because we would not want to fly in a plane. She got to hang out with our cousin Coby who is a very nice Cockapoo.
He likes to play with toys and sometimes he rips them. Our Grandma always performs surgery on his toys when she visits. At least he leaves them in pieces big enough to sew back together. Ambrose's idea of playing with toys is to shred them in tiny pieces.
The big news is that Coby has a new sister so we have a new cousin. She is a Cockapoo too and is called Nellie. She looks very sweet and we are glad to welcome her to the family. Coby loves her.
