These aren't very good. Maybe he will let me take some better ones next time.

I tried to get some pictures of him in the apple tree, he has been spending a lot of time in it.

Oh Willie .. he is so precious .... what a joy he must be to have around the house!!! I'd love to see him sittin' in a tree pickin' apples!!!:D

Those blueberries look scrumptious ... are they fresh from your yard!??:eek:

Those pictures are wonderful Willie! He looks so engrossed in his snacks...and those blueberries look scrumptious. :) Hope he saved you some! Cute boy Mario!:D :D :D

He has been eating natural lately. He stayed in the plum trees, while the plums were ripe, now he is eating apples, tomatoes. The blueberries are from our little patch at the side of the house. He seems to really love those blueberries and tomatoes.

Its a good thing Mario don't stray far from the house or he would stay out in the blueberry patch! There are tons of blackberries around too. I haven't tried him on blackberries yet.

Willie Mario is so cute, you are very fortunate to have a pet monkey, I don't think legally in NZ one can own one as a pet,do they have any special needs,? I really know nothing much about taking care of a monkey, he is adorable, how old is he? and how did you come by him?

Are his cheeks full of blueberries in this picture! Willie, if this is so, does he listen to "commands" so to speak, to "swallow" before shoving more in? Or is this how he eats peanut butter sandwiches too!?

Mario was born in Louisana. We got him when he was a baby, I think he is about 16 or 17 years old.

Mario does have a certain food he eats, but when the veggies and berries are in season, he really feasts on those too.

Yeap, Leslie, his jaws are full of blueberries. He was getting all he could before Jimmy took the blueberries away. He had just got through eating some sliced tomatoes too. He don't have any special needs. He is free to do what he wants to. He has been free for so long, I don't know what would happen if we suddenly decided to put him in a cage!

Aww what a cutie:D

07-12-2004, 10:38 PM
He's so cute! Those blueberries look yummy, i'd shove em in my cheeks too! :p

The first picture is my favoriute.... I see a sweet little head popping out of the bottom.:p :D

No wonder the floor at the bar is stained with blueberry jooze!!:eek: :eek: Mario you little devil, you are just as sweet here as you are at Dick's Place. Kisses to you, even if you have a blue tongue!!:D :D

07-12-2004, 10:44 PM
Those are great pictures!
Does your dog get along with him? I haven't seen any of your posts so I apologize if you've talked about it before!
Gosh, that would be so fun to have a monkey. Matthew's favorite animal.....I gotta show him these pictures!!!! So cool:D

Mario got a little ill with the chihuahuas today, because he was jealous! He didn't want them to sit on the porch with me, so he screamed at them!

I have got to get a video of him screaming, so you can hear that shrill scream he has! It will deafen you!

Mario gets along quite well with the dogs even the rottie. He is sweet, he always know Jimmy has candy in his pocket. When Jimmy ask him if he wants candy, he goes and sits down with him and opens his own peppermint candy or whatever kind Jimmy has in his pocket.

Jimmy just gives the blueberries to the neighbors and other friends. Kay, if you lived closer, you would get plenty of blueberries!

Mario, you are so cute!

07-13-2004, 10:40 AM
Aww, Mario is such a cutie. I love the blueberry pictures.

Willie, he is adorable!!!! :) What great pictures you got of him. I am especially fond of the blueberry pictures too. Your situation with Mario is so unique. I don't think I have ever heard of anyone owning a monkey before, let alone one that can run free and chooses to stick close to home! It has been so special to learn more about him and his species through your experience.

Willie, when I was over at Thursdays I felt something bonk me on the head. I had no idea what it could have been. Now, I know........it was Mario throwing apples at me!

What adorable pictures.......he looks so intent on eating those blueberries.

Oh, all of those fresh berries at your home.......can I come over a visit?

Willie, just out of curiosity - what is Mario's regular diet? I was thinking that he must have special needs for his diet. He sure looks healthy!

Logan you took the words right out of my mouth!! I think Mario is the first monkey many of us have ever "met" and he couldn't be more darling! I love these pictures and thanks so much for sharing. I have to comment, though, that I think your Jimmy looks like a young Kenny Rogers! :cool: Does he play the guitar or sing?! :D :p

Sooo cute Willie! Mario is just a big ball of cuteness! :D THanks for sharing some new pictures. They were very much needed!

07-13-2004, 12:29 PM
He does have his own food, a monkey biscuit. He loves them! But with all this other fresh fruits and berries around, he is really getting a lot of treats.

I don't know what they taste like, but he sure does love his biscuits, so between his biscuits and his treats, he does really good.


07-13-2004, 12:38 PM
Yay!! These are great pictures! It's good to see Mario. Thanks for posting them. :D :D :D :D

Mario, you silly boy, you look like you're having a great time with those blueberries!! Is your tongue blue now? ;)

07-13-2004, 12:39 PM
Mario, you sweetie you!
What great pictures! He certainly looked to be enjoying the blueberries but not too sure about the tomato! We'll have to see about having blueberries for you at Thursdays!

Um, Mario, in the first picture, where IS your diaper? or were having an 'air out'?
:eek: :D

07-13-2004, 12:40 PM
Thought I would show you what his biscuit looks like, the picture isn't very good, but it will give you an idea of what it looks like.

Even the dogs love it!

Mario is such a cutie! It must be so neat to say "I have a dog, cat, oh yes, and a monkey!" I wish I could say that.....


07-14-2004, 10:49 AM
Willie, Mario is just adorable. :D

I also love the Blueberries photos, stuff as many berries in as you can Mario. LOL Silly boy.

Thankyou so much for sharing the photos. :D

Awww, Mario, you're so adorable eating your blueberries. :D

In the 3rd pic he looks like a little piggy because you can see he has one in his mouth already and he's reaching for more! :D

And just in preparation...does anybody know what gets blueberry stains out? For some reason I'm thinking we're going to need to know that at Thursdays. ;) :D

07-14-2004, 11:40 AM
Mario really loves those blueberries. Jimmy picked some more last night, and let Mario get what he wanted out. He said Mario dug down into the basket as deep as he could to get the blueberries. Anyway, he said Mario made a pig out of himself.

Yeap, we will probably have to know how to take blueberry stains out!

He has gone crazy over the tomatoes too, and the apple tree, he loves those apples too. I have tried to get some pictures of him in the tree, but he gets so far up in the tree, all I get is a little brown furry spot in the tree!

Thanks to all for all the sweet comments on Mario, I know he loves all the attention!


07-14-2004, 03:50 PM
AWWWW!! Marioooo!

Willie, He is sooo adorable.. :) We need more pictures! I want a monkey now.. :p

Great pictures.. :D

He's so cute! I love that one where it looks like his cheeks are stuffed with blueberries. It must be fun to have him there with you.
