Oh boy! Oh boy! Oh boy! I got the most wonderful package in the mail from Frankie!

Open up!

Out tumbled cards! From my pals! All thanking me for Mango Minster 2010! It was totally happy making for sure.

I made sure momma read me all the words that you sent. It made her smile and me too because I have to say that sometimes during Mango Minster we both got kind of tired and cranky, but this made it all worth it!

Oh, what have we here?

It is FLOOF! From none other than Miss Khyra herself! Most likely some of her..... PANTY LOONS!

Nom, nom, nom.

I even shared with PeeWee!

Plus Frankie's mom had made us each a lovely flannel pillow case. I was kind of hoping PeeWee would get into his (since tomorrow is trash day - hehehe), but no such luck.

Check out his chin. He has a Khyra floof beardie.

And I have a Khyra floof top knot. How does it look?

Oh ish! How did this picture get in here?

MY pillow case has nice doggies all over it and it goes so well with our living room decor that momma tried to confiscate it.

No, no, no! This one is for the Mango! I am most handsome in my doggie pillow case cape.

Thank you all my pals and special thanks to Frankie for setting it all up. It was a glorious surprise.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. PLEASE visit Dozer's bloggy for a most important PSA involving the shocking and disturbing photo below! Oh the horror!


Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I'm so glad woo liked getting to be with me even if woo khouldn't BE with me!

As fur the surprise, we are soooooo thankful woo didn't read those things on our blog about MANGO NOT READING THIS! I'm so proud woo didn't!

It was khwite pawesome of Frankie Furter and his furry talented mom to khreate such khool stuffs fur woo!

I do hope the floof didn't make The LabraDork TOOOOOO ICD!

PeeEssWoo: We saw our khard too!

houndstooth said...

We're so glad you got it and liked it! You definitely deserve a lot of thanks for taking on such a big job!


Moose said...

Frankie Roolz! I was gonna send one to Frankie too but Momma said no it was just for Countestants not for esteemed judges! Oops! I know how much work it was so we are really glad you stuck it out and it was a great show!
Nice Floof too!
On another note... Pee Wee! You're all the way in the box! Are you going somewhere? Maybe some kind of paw it forward mission? Or a world tour like Brutus? Be sure momma cuts holes in the box before you get shipped off :-)

Wild Dingo said...

Kari in WeHo said...

Marjie said...

I need to send my Momma to get me a doggy pillow case cape. Now.


Martha and Bailey said...

What a great surprise Mango - you and your mamma worked so very hard with Mango Minster it was very kind of Frankie Furter to organise that.
You really suit that pillow case - it is not everyone who could carry it off but you wear it well.
love and kisses

We hate to tell you but mango smoothies were always our Mom's fave - she'll never look at them the same way again.

Oskar said...

What a wonderful surprise. I have to admit that Oskar got a nice pillow from JD & Max's people & I may have tried to swipe it for myself. Of course Oskar had no desire to give up his "Around Here The Miniature Schnauzer Is In Charge" pillow.

I'm off to read Dozer's PSA!

Frankie Furter said...

I am soooo very much glad that you got your Thank You Cards. I have another surprise coming your way.
Leave it to the two of you to find even more creative ways to have fun with the "pillow cases". I never thought of playing the Caped Doxsader with mine. I'm gonna give that a try. I NEVER put mine on the couch. I Never use mine for covering up a pillow either. Now and then I play with it completely empty. It is fun to roll around and shake and use like an unstuffie. Iusually just drag it to mom and make her fill it up with toys and snacks and then take it to my "room" so that I can drag it all through the house to the TV room. That is where mom and dad get to watch me... UNLOAD my stuffs. Mom says it is a grrrreat game for Intellectuals Stimulations and I know how you LOVE those thingys. Well, HOWEVER you choose to use them... have fun my furends.
Mango, I knew you would go all cracker dawg crazy when you got to Khyra's Khard. She is soooo much thoughtful to have included some of her delicious and most precious Floof De' Loons.
Thank you again for all the MM 2010 fun. We are all looking forward to MM 2011.

Eric said...

What a wagging idea, you and DOH deserved a nice suprise for all your hard work! I have a photo for you I'll pee mail it!

Wiry love Eric xx

McGillicutty said...

Mango, you lucky fella,

You got Khyra Floof???? Me likes it on your head like a little toupee. That floof sticks to your mouth, huh?And, those cards were nice. I LOVE getting mail!!! You definitely could pull off the pillowcase as a cape look, dude!! The Mango Smoothie looks quite good to me, actually.

Irish Love,

Anonymous said...

Oh, look at all those Most Sweet cards. You sure do have some loving friends, Mango! I am Most Sorry I missed Mango Minster this year. It sure does look like fun but like a lot of work, too. And I'm glad it was so very much appreciated.

Wiggles & Wags,

PeeS. What does Khyra floof taste like? I think it looks like it would taste like ice cream.

Tucker said...

Sorry I never sent a card. I nagged Momma but she was too slow and the deadline passed. Anyway, those look like fabulous thank you cards for a very good job done.

Thanks for all your work.

woof - Tucker

Benny and Lily said...

Oh Mango and Dexter you guys are so special getting all those cards! Have fun chewing them. We mean reading them

The OP Pack said...

We didn't participate in the contest as entrants but we so enjoyed following it. We sent our thanks in too. And Frankie did such a great job keeping it a secret:)

Bet you both really loved that Khyra fluff. Have a great weekend.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

BRUTUS said...

OMD - did Khyra really send a piece of herself??? And did you honestly try to eat it?? I'm gastronomically adventurous, but that is just weird, dude....
Great gifts from Frankie, and very creative to turn them into an accessory. I could use it as a sleeping bag!

Twinkietinydog said...

May we just thank you one more time for the amazingly fun MM 2010? I too thought it was terribly sweet of Frankie Furter to put this together and I want to publicly thank him as well.

Noah the Airedale said...

Crikey, look at all those cards. That's an awesome idea.

ps. you look dapper in your pillow case hehe.

Two Country Poodles said...

Amber and Nala said...

Ah Mango & Dexter, what pawesome gifts!! I can't believe you got REAL Khyra cool is that! The beardy and top hat made me laugh...hehehe! But that last shot I think will be giving me nightmares...oh dear, I definitely say NO! :)


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

Darn...we missed the whole cardie behind the ball here!

Um...that Mango smoothie looks amazin...I'm pretty sure this isn't the first time your RHself has found itself in a run over there now...



animal lover, quilt lover said...

Hi Mango and Dexter,
Now you will know Khyra and her Mom when you smell them. Neat!!
You deserve lots and lots of thanks for all you and your Mom did. I enjoyed reading and voting during the contest.
Mango and Dexter I really miss you coming and talking to me and Bambi.
Have I said something wrong?
Please kiss them both for me.

Stella, Gunther and Betty said...

That was so sweet of Frankie. Hard to image he had time to do that considern' he gettin' ready to marry two chicks. I'm tired just thinkin' about it!

You and your mom deserve a lot of thanks for how much you make us all laugh.

well, i'm off now to read the horror story about "mango smoothies" - will the story give me nightmares?

wrestling match invitations and play bows,


Maggie and Mitch said...

That was super sweet of Frankie! MangoMinster was such fun! Thank you, thank you once again!
Love the pillowcase capes!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Aniemother said...

You both look great in Khyra floof (who wouldn't?)! The mango smoothie reminds me of my worries when I found canned Mango at the store. Most disturbing.

I must also admit that my chicken wings are served frozen as to prevent certain hungry/lazy puggies (no idea who) from trying to swallow peaces without chewing. Pieces of meat are no worry, but pieces of bone can apparently be a nuisance coming out the other end. Can't say I know for sure, but I remember that the yogurt cup (yes.. the cup..) caused some distress when it passed..


Mack and Mia said...

Mango and Dex,

Those are some shnazzy pillow cases I must say!

I'm not allowed near pillows or their cases.


Wags and Woofs,
Mack and Mia

Clive said...

Oh Mango, we didn't know about that joint thank you to you! We would most certainly have participated!

Thank goodness we sent you a little St Patrick's Day gift in the post the other day or we would feel totally bad! Hope it gets to you soon!

take care
Clive and the NSLM

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

I have to bark - the pillow case is so You!

Sex In The City has nothing on your total clothes and style glamour ;0D

MAX said...

Hey there Mango buddy!
That was an awesome gesture from your MM friends. You guys did such an amazing job Im not surprised that mom is fatigued! These things 'take it out' of you - if your know what I mean. Your mom is an absolute star and we enjoyed the event thoroughly! She deserves a medal for sure!
I also wanted to congratulate you on your amazing agilities feat! There is nothing that the Mango can't accomplish!

Sending lots of licks, good wishes and cyber-water bowls from South Africa!
Your faithful fan,

Abby said...

Hi, Mango & Pee-Wee...

Wow...Great cards & presents...

The Khyra Fluff is definately a collector's item...It's gonna be worth millions of Treats someday...

Missed you guys so much...

Abby xxxooo

Sargeant said...

Hi Mango (and the Labradude)!
Glad you liked the cards. Everyone had so much fun with MangoMinster that we all wanted to say thanks! Enjoy the fluff from Khyra and the pillow cases. They are a ton of fun! Frankie and his mom are the best for cooking up this idea to thank you.

btw: Mango Smoothies! bol bol, very very funny!

Grrr and Woof,

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

What a wonderful present. You are so lucky Mango. Pantaloon fluff must be really smelly...
What a silly smoothie..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Sue said...

What a nice package. We send our thanks, too. It was our first Mango Minster and we really enjoyed it. Since there are ten of us, I'm sure someone in our pack will enter again.

Ms. ~K said...

Wroooo wroooo,
Glad you liked the cards!
As we've said before, Mango Mom is the hardest working doggie bloggie mom!!!
Licks and sniffs,
Zack, Sassy and Buddy


Frankie is wonderfully sneaking like that.. grumpy on the outside but sweet on the inside. Your cape is the perfect touch for mc of mangominster. Now I hope mango smoothies are not next year's sponsor.

PS I saw peewee's red brazier today. he tried to eat my carrots... look in his poop

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Mango - am sorry I haven't been to visit earlier - my stupid human has got her RSI again so she said she had to "take a break" from the keyboard (I'll bet it's because she's been writing stupid long emails to your Momma moaning about my blog!) - anyway, she went for a special massage today and is feeling better.

Ooh - that floof thing looks amazing (and also kinda creepy!) - almost like a doggie drug, kind of thing - you know? Like that snuff stuff that humans used to sniff, Hsin-Yi says.

And guess what? I got a package from you today which I think is my Mango Minster medal!!! Hsin-Yi says I can't open it yet coz it's been grey all day and dark now - and she wants nice light so she can take good photos (Sheesh, with her, everything is about the photos)...anyway, I can't wait!

hero said...

Great TQ cards... and nice pillow case too... and you're all too deserving.

Licks, hero

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

You are most stunning in your cape. And the floof is quite impressive!

*kissey face*

Joe Stains said...

Hnm we didn't know about this card sending business, I gues I need to get out more!!

achieve1dream said...

Hmm I somehow missed the card thing. I would have sent you one. We really appreciated all you hard work on Mango Minster. It was so much fun we look forward to next year. :)


P.S. Sorry it's taking us so long to read your blog and sorry we sometimes aren't commenting. Just wanted to let you know we're still here and enjoying your every word. :)
