Mongo and Pie
As summer has worn on, Mongo has gotten more and more hungry. He has taken to nibbling black berries right of the cane, despite the thorns, and he is continually searching for any low hanging tree fruit or fruit that has fallen on the ground. He has his favorite trees and bushes that he drags Dad over to, and then some that he only frequents if happens to pass close by them.
He likes green apples, red apples, pears, red raspberries, white raspberries, thimble berries, black berries, strawberries, blue berries, and peaches. With all this fruit, it was only a matter of time before he tried to create a vehicle to better enjoy the gifts of the summer. This week, he apparently decided to make a pie. However, as one of his predecessors, Hudson the Golden retriever found out, pie making without thumbs is more challenging than it might appear.
Mongo started with flour. Someone left the pantry door open again; a definite no-no around Mr. M. (See Mongo’s First Howl-o-ween for more info.) He got a hold of a five lb bag of flour, and carried it into Kimi’s room. There he opened it and created a huge sticky mess on the carpet, while managing to get most of it down. Mix all that flour with all that fruit, shake gently and Voila! Pie! Or in this case, just more dog “sick”…
And aside from having to clean up the flour paste, and the dog sick, they also had to clean up Mongo who managed to cover himself in flour paste also, right to the tip of his nose!
More white poop for Dad to scoop.
