A Note From Momma

I want to share with you that two of our Mango Minster working dog entries are assistance dogs in training. This is, to my mind, one of the highest callings a dog can have and I applaud the patient owners who foster these pups to the point where they can assume full time jobs.

If you have a few dollars to spare, please consider donating to these worthy causes represented by our two assistance dog entries;

Special recognition also to Dixie who is a Medical Alert and Assistance Service Dog

Mango Minster is most honored to have a great list of generous sponsors. Next time you are in the market for dog clothes, dog fun stuff, or dog related human fun stuff, please visit their sites and support our DWB community member businesses.

1000 Goldens Dog Shop (not just for Golden Retreivers)

Two of our sponsors will be awarding prizes from donations to their favorite charities

Finally, don't forget to shop at the official Mango Minster Gear Store! Wow! Half of all proceeds will go to NEADS Dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans

Here is one of my favorite Mango photos just to tide you over until his next post.

Mango Momma! Oh yeah!

P.S. I think Mango is over at Mango Minster training for the two officially sanctioned events. Check it out!

Mango looks like he is calling on the higher powers to come to his assistance.

We think it is wonderful that you have those pups with such honorable responsibilites in your working dog group. That is an awesome calling.

Is this a new form of meditations? It appears that your are looking to the heavens for guidance...

Glad I'm not in the working group - I could never measure up to such responsible, honorable doggies!!

It looks like it's going to be super hard to compete with THOSE hard workers! wow!

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

I was wondering if I have ever told you before what a handsome doggie you are? If I have I am doing it again.
Great that the humans can help with the training of the working doggies. That must be a hard job, plus the mom here said she would get used to each doggie and not want to give it up when the time would come.

Chloe and Libby said...

Yay!!! Mango, you are soo handsome big guy!

ocmist said...

You are sure doing an awesome job in putting all this stuff together, and your Mom, I'm sure, it totally busy in the background doing all those menial tasks that need to be done to keep things moving smoothly... speaking of which, with all your travels, be careful of the chocolate... OC

River said...

This is going to be awesome! I wasn't going to enter, thinking I couldn't do better than last year (1st runner up) but now I think I will. It depends on my mom getting a good picture.

Ahhhh.. that is a lot of slobbers, Mango!!

Those assistance dogs are fantastic and I can only wish I were as intelligent as they are.. Hmm.. I assist my mom to finish her food or when she drops foodables on the floor, I assist her to clean it up... you think that counts?

MAX said...

Paws up your Moma Mango for all she's organising - under your supervision of course. Those assistance dog's are flipping clever eh? Wagging to have them in your contest.

On the housework thingie p'haps you could walk about with Dusters tied to your huge paws? Would mop the floor for Mama in no time specially in those in betweenie places where you tread.

Why has stupid blogger not downloaded your handsomeness? Must of been too much for him.

Wiry love Eric xx

Pearl said...

I am sooo thankful for assistance dogs and what they and their humans do! Thanks for recognizing our esteemed Mangominster contestants!
