If I Could Get a Pet: Mango the Dog
If I could GET a PET………….
I would get THIS DOG!
I can’t have a dog because I already have TWO cats. Lucille sits in her cat home all day like a VEAL and only comes out at night. She and Lola have worked out a system in which they hate each other from afar and it’s working for us. So we cannot add a dog to the mix. But if we could…….
This would be the one! His name is MEL. He’s already 4 years old so I don’t know if that’s a SHELTER name or if he’s had it for some time. If it’s a shelter name, I’d immediately switch his name to MANGO. Because it’s cute, but also because someone mentioned the Chris Kattan SNL sketch this weekend and it’s been in my mind ever since! Plus, it’s a fun name to say! “Mango! I’m home! Mango, let’s go for a walk! Mango, look at me when I’m talking to you!” See? FUN!
It doesn’t need to be pointed out, but Mango’s ears are almost TOO big for his face! In a human this would be grotesque, but Mango makes it werk. He also looks like he has a glamorous mink stole around his neck, which offsets that leather and stud collar in a surprising but eye-popping fashion! His tongue is a perfect peach teardrop, and he appears to have four flawless paws. All in all, a 10/10 dog!
This dog seems like a city dog, but at heart he’s a country dog for sure. We’d head to the CSA on weekends and he’d walk along the farm with me as I pick cherry tomatoes for this week’s share, and then we’d go home and I’d read the latest issue of the New Yorker while Mango barks at squirrels outside the window. Mango! I already love you!
