Mango Minster Recap and Thanks
WOW! I can't believe its over already. Mango Minster was a huge success and I am already using my large and powerful Mango brain thinking about next year. We had 110 Count Test Ants! I am soooo glad that I didn't have to judge.
First I want to thank every doggie, kittie, hammie, and human who entered, voted, judged, left comments, or just watched from the sidelines. You made it all worthwhile.
To my esteemed judges, Eduardo, Dennis, Lacie, Kylie, Joe, Bolo, Penny, Poppy, and Patches, and, of course, Khyra...
A great job by all judges. The Mango could have never been as impartial as you.
NOTE TO ALL WINNERS: I might not be able to work on your certificates of achievement and prizes for a bit due to the fact the Momma was most disturbed by the state in which I left the dog cave...
She was also less than enthusiastic about this thoughtful gift I bought her. I figured given all the HBO words I have heard lately about the HTMLs this past week she would be overjoyed.
Perhaps since Momma learned to talk computer by scribing 1's and 0's on stone tablets in something called assembly language, she is put off by these "new-fangled" ways of speaking.
Momma wants to thank Asta, Lacie, and Petey's mom's for their assistance with behind the scenes photos and helping her overcome her separation anxiety whilst I was busy with the show.
Here is a list of all winners along with helpful links to their bloggies. Please stop by and congratulate them.

To wind down from the excitement, I indulged in a most yummers meaty bone.
As did Pee-Wee...
Followed by a well deserved bake on my Observation Deck.
So until next year...
P.S. It has come to my attention that some of you were actually wondering where Pee-Wee has been during the past week. Never fear! I assigned him a very important wood carving project to keep his midget brain entertained whilst I was otherwise occupied.
The morning he couldn't wait to show me the finished product.
Not bad for a first effort, but I, Mango helped put some finishing touches on it. I think I will call it "Bad Sporty Dork"
