adventures of Manni the wonderdog

Where is Waldo, 2.0 (Manni, I mean Manni!!)

So, while I still have a few laughs in me, I thought I’d share with you.

Waldo, the little nightmare of a dog, oh! Did I do it again?? I mean Manni, of course. But you will understand my confusion when I share with you his latest antics. You know, you figure: hey! I have a tripawd dog that’s very sick, who needs a leash? and then you turn your back for a second and poof! he’s disappeared! He’s been making a new hobby out of this, I swear!!

I’ll show you what he’s been up to. But I’ll start you off nice and easy. I have hawks’ eyes by now and I’ll help you find him:

There! See him? No? Well, this is what I deal with on a daily basis!!

Ok, now that you had a little practice let’s see if you can get this one:

Found him? Good job!! Let’s move on to something harder. Let me remind you: ON A DAILY BASIS…

Not that easy anymore, is it? I am telling you, that little … has made this his new profession. He’s always been good at driving me nuts but he’s been taking this to new heights. Let’s see, what else do we have?

Need a hint for this one?? Do you?? Well, ok. Follow the leash…

Ha! Can’t find him here?? GOT YA! He’s inside. I just wanted to show you my cool tripawd plaque πŸ™‚

And then there are the other times where he was either still practicing his hiding skills or I don’t know what he was thinking. A little too obvious if you ask me, but there you are. It’s nice for me to catch a break once in a while…

Really, huh?

It’s Mother Teresa! No! It’s Mother Manni!!

Nope. Sorry. Getting a wig will not lead you to greatness and that does not qualify as hiding…

You see what I’m dealing with here???

Sympathy, please?

And that’s not all. Noooooo, sir! You know: you put a time stamp on somebody’s butt and yet they just refuse to comply! instead, he gets up to all his usual antics:

I swear he was inside a second ago… well, somebody better be guarding the food I guess.

I mean, it’s nice they let you take even the stroller inside the pet store but I guess they didn’t expect this:


I really try to keep that boy busy. I mean I do! Really! And all this is how he thanks me!!

I mean, I know that it’s hard for him not to be able to move around as much as he did before so I take him on trips and I even invent little games:

As you can see and as usual: the only way he knows how to appear thankful is by sticking around a lot longer than anyone ever expected.

I guess that’s more than enough for me.

    Manni camouflages well but his nose gives him away every time expect for the trickery picture you pulledπŸ˜‚ Good one Tina and what was in the dang box had to be a present in there yes? I watched twice , I see no presents πŸ˜‚ You had to put a treat in there for him I hope, he so he deserves TREATS & presents ! He sure enjoyed the box and paper and didn’t even eat it? Good boy Manni!

    Keep on hopping on and I see the big red bow around his neck even its it’s invisible. Yep he wears it daily!! 🎁 Give that nose a smooch for us please!

    He does make it a challenge to see him, right?

    I am always thrilled to see an update on the adventures of Tina and Manni! I am glad he’s still with us … on his terms of course! His royal highness … I would expect nothing less!!!

    He does look good … proof positive there is no time-stamp on anyone’s booty!

    Hugs and love!

    I fear Herr’ Manni is developing a wicked sense of humor with new hide’n’seek games which are designed to freak out Mom and keep her on top of her game. Oh my is this a case of the student surpassing the teacher??? 😳 Well done Manni…..well done! β€οΈβ€οΈπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Brilliant, Manni ! You are an expert at vanishing acts, luckily Mommy has eagle’s eyes! Totally love your Mother Teresa photo, your eye expression is priceless !
    But I don’t know about the comb over, you look like Trump and nobody deserves that hairstyle πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Wow o Wow. Way to go Manni. You are showing everyone that you are a true Warrior and not give up on you. You will just show them how it’s done right? I love the hiding games just don’t go too far where you can’t find your mom.

    Tina, if you don’t have grey hair by the time Manni is done with the hiding games he is pulling I don’ t think you will ever have any πŸ™‚

    Thinking of you both

    Love all the pictures

    Your laser focus on those French Fries is to b ber admired! I DO hope you got to eat some! Leave that silly salad for your humans!

    It really makes me xhuckle to see how Manni takes advantage of being off leash.:-) Oh yeah, Manni’s still in the game of life alright πŸ™‚

    My favorite photo (and it’s hard to have a favorite when each one is my favorite) is the GIMME…GIMMEE…GIMMEE photo! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ “Closer Mom! Closer!!! What’s wrong with you? Move closer NOW!

    Okay, gonna go get my magnifying glass and go find Waldo/Manni in that third picture! πŸ™‚ Oh, and love how he thoroughly enjoys opening that box with such kill and determination! πŸ™‚

    Hehehehe Manni, you’re good Dude!!! You have a pawfect place to play hide and seek! I would Ruv to come and play that game with you!
    The picture with your head in the bucket πŸ˜‚ brilliant disguise buddy! Out of all the Halloween costumes that you’ve tried on, I think the Manni Theresa look works for you for sure! Although I thought the wig was more Ivanka than Donald!!! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚β€οΈ
    Did you manage to pull that crate of treats out the door with you or were you accosted by security?!!!
    Tina, you’re doing a brilliant job with keeping yourself and Manni busy. Hats 🎩 off to you girl!
    All our love

    Manni! so good to see you, even if only a speck in the distance. Maybe especially as a speck in the distance ’cause that means you’re feeling good!

    I think I found you in that third picture but can’t be certain. I’m glad your mom has the eagle eyes to keep track of you.

    So happy to hear from you! Even better with lots of pictures!

    Sending you big ol’ cyber-hugs!

    Bhahahaha! We had such fun trying to find Manni! Too cute Tina, you did a great job with this one (as usual!).

    I love that he unwraps packages. That was one of Jerry’s favorite things to do. The box could have nothing inside. As long as he got to unwrap it he was a hoppy boy.

    Here’s to more packages, more camping trips and lots more fun finding Manni. Love you guys!
