Always In Our Hearts

Sunday, March 29, 2009


My buddy Mango is something pretty awesome. He's one hunk of burning Mastiff love, and he's one genius of a goober for hosting the first ever alternative to the wannabe dogshow Westminster... Mango Minster! For being the goob genius he is I'm going to start calling him Mangoober!

I am deeply humbled by the awards I received at Mango Minster. They were totally unexpected! Here you see me sportin' my award for Reader's Choice Best in Show. Whoa. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed here...

I think my award may be trying to strangle me.

Nothing to worry about. I'll get it under control here in a minute.

Sthee? Almoth got it under conthrol.

Sthorry bout the intherruption in the photo thoot.

And, here's my lovely award for winning the Terrier Group! I will proudly represent my fellow terriers this year (and a big hairy goob shall lead them...)!

It looks almost good enough to eat.

I'll just break off a chunk...

...from over here...

Seems my girl forgot to mention to me that it's not an edible award, but isn't it gorgeous all the same? I can't seem to take my eyes off of it.

Speaking of eatables, I got a sweet bag of pumpkin treats which disappeared so fast we have no photographic evidence of them.

Look what else I received for my win in the Terrier Group!

Aw yea, baby. That's right! I received some PAWESOME banana carob cookies from my buddy Murphy (that's him on the package) and his mama's Punk Rock Dogg store (it's WAYYYY cool)! MAN, those were stinkin' tasty too!

That's not all! The judges of the Terrier Group, Penny, Poppy, and Patches, sent me my very own felted wheelie from their mama! She even named him after me!

Check out his adoption certificate!

Do you see the resemblance? (He's one good lookin wheelie!)

I know Wheelie Stan is not edible, but I might just sneak in for a little taste...

I am overwhelmed with all of these FABULOUS awards! Thanks Penny, Poppy, Patches and Murphy!! Give your mamas a big juicy goob smooch from me. And Mangoober, I'm ordering up the biggest and best Atomic Booty Scritch for you from my girl, and sending the biggest and juiciest of goober smooches for your sweet mama! Viva Mangoober! Viva Mango Minster! Can't wait to see all the pups compete next year!!!

Goober love,

Well done! And what a photo shoot! We think a mastiff needs a stronger title than "goober." Master drooler, first class or some such.

Stanley my friend,
Congrats on all your lovely wins! We are soooo proud of you, and you totally deserved the win!
Wheelie Stan really has your handsome-ness and goober-ness.. Oh and the medal and trophy.. I am sure your girl will display it with pride!

Molly and Taffy said...

Oh well done Stanley.

Your medals and awards are much deserved. We thought for a minute you were in fact going to bite a huge chunk out of your award! We sat here holding our breath while scrolling to see the next photo.

Now we are drooling looking at the bag of treats! If I had a bag of goodies like that you can rest assured Taffy would have it open before you could say "treat".

Have a good week.

Mango said...

WOW! I am honored to be an official goob. That is the coolest thing ever. Your photo shoot was amazing. The way you speak to the camera! That must be how you won.

I think the award is good to gnaw on. Who knows, you might be able to make some sparks if you bitey it enough.


P.S. Is it possible that the Stellanator has a wee crush on my Mangoness? Just askin.

Pearl said...

Stanley! You are famerous! Look at all those awards just for you!!!

Tell your sweet sissy Stella I said thanks for coming to visit my bloggie! I think she and I might have a lot in common, as I am a bit of a goobery diva myself!

Momma was going through some old pictures this weekend and found the funniest puppy picture of me. I look SO gooberific! I am going to post it this week... and see if I can get myself a goober name!

Poobearl? Goopearl?

Clover said...

Lucia said...

Ciao Gooberstanians!

Honestly, it's so hard to decide which of you -- Mango or Stanley -- has the most memorable facial expressions. I think the camera just loves you both!!

Favoloso awards, Stanley, and richly deserved!!!

Tanti baci!

Sophie Brador said...

Stanley! I'm really hoping that at next year's Mango Minster, they have a Diva category. Or maybe even a Best Goobervillian category. I know I could win that ... as long as you and Stella don't compete.

Murphy Dogg said...

Holy crap, I LOVE Wheelie Stan! I want a Murphy Wheelie! Then we could have Wheelie us races! It would be awesome!

Moco said...

Well said, as usual. You are one articulate goob.

Joe Stains said...

Congrats Stan buddy, you really represented at Mango Minster this year! Too bad the medal almost got the best of you! Those punk rock dogg cookies are some of our absolute favorites, and we are not just saying that because our pal makes them.

We are honored to call such a well decorated dog our buddy.

Tee said...

Congratulations on the award Stanley!

Those are great looking medals and the wheelie tops it all. Love the resemblance!
