Mango Minster Madness

This dude is my relentlessly huge buddy, Mango. He's a massive mastiff with the sunniest disposition and hugest heart. (Don't you just wanna smooch that face?)

This week, as an alternative to that Westminster fiasco they called a dogshow, Mango hosted his own dogshow, Mango Minster. If you haven't been by yet, you've got to go check it out. Over 100 dogs entered, and today is the best in show judging!

It's been madness all week for my behemoth buddy. As soon as Mango Minster concludes I hope he's off to some remote island where he can get in some good meditation time...

... and of course, some good roachin'! You've done a FABULOUS job on the dogshow, man! You deserve a vacation!

Here are two of my fave photos I entered in the contest. This is me RUNNING LIKE THE WIND!

And this is one of my most recent goober faces.

Of course, Stella entered the competition too, and would like to leave you with some ballet moves she's been working on for next year's Mango Minster. Especially check out that back leg extension after she does her little hop forward.

Don't forget to go check out Mango Minster! You won't be sorry.

Goober love,

We were thrilled to bits that you're representing us Terrier dudes in the Best of Show. I guess our wins showed those numbskulls at Westminster, huh?

Don't mess with a terrier!

Now go out there and bring home the big silver cup! (Just make sure Lacie's not hiding inside before you pour in the champagne!)

Your pal,

Mango said...

WOW! Thanks for the plug. I LOVE looking at pictures of my large and handsome self, especially on other people's bloggies.

Was that Stalla pooping? Nice dance moves, though. Maybe next year a dance competition?

Way to go Stanley. That goober face was a real humdinger!!! No wonder you are a champion.Mango now he's a champion too for all that hard work.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Stanley rocks!! Yes sireee, you are a winner. Hootie thinks he should have been in the terrier group too, so next year you'll have to let us know ahead of time, so he can get his entry in. He loves to admire himself in the mirror & thinks he's big, like Mango!! Silly boy. Smooches,BabyRocket Dog

The OP Pack said...

Koobuss said...

Mango did an awesome job on Mango Minster! He deserves not only a vacation, but a huge award as well!

That video of Stella is quite remarkable. What coordination! I think that she is just about ready for the Rockettes!!

And the photos of you, Stan, are terrific! Especially that last one!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh my...where do we start...

First of all, your tongue real or is it one of those fakie ones you can buy at the petstore?? (Stan is probably the only DWB male of whom Lacie doesn't know the answer to this question due to her BFF status with Asta....)

Your tongue is as long as ur legs...

As for that video of's one of the first videos we've watched 5's's amazing you have any grass left. No, twinny, I don't do those ballet arabasque stretches like rock, Stella!!!

Great job representin' the Terriers, Stan...

That Mango is going to sleep till next February....he has a ton of meditation time to makeup....

Love ya...Laciegirl

Joe Stains said...

Is Stella trying to do the moonwalk or what?? We had such a great time judging Mango Minster and Tanner had fun being disqualified for being a brat and then winning the readers choice.

Neko said...

The tongue picture may be the best I've ever seen. Mom is still laughing. Love,Neko

Moco said...

Both you and Stella are sights to behold. Good job on winning People's Choice.

Amber-Mae said...

Mango sure deserves a vacation & an award for coming up with the BEST prestigious dog show ever!

Butt sniffs,
