I Wanna be Like MANGO! A Contest!

Given that momma is still ignoring me and suffering from the busy brain and trying to catch up on bloggies, I thought, what better time to run my very own contest, right? Here goes...

Do you wish you were more like the Mango? Well, who doesn't? Now is your chance to let your inner Mango-ness shine through and possibly win a cool prize in the process. Plus, for every entry, I, Mango, will donate one dollar of my kibbles money to the Tufts School of Doggie Medicines where they train the nice people who take care of me when I have whatchyercall veterinary emergencies.

Yuh, I give you the first ever I Wanna be Like Mango contest!

That's right, now you can let all of blog land see how very much like my large and handsome self you really are.

Here are the rules;
  1. Write a post on your blog all about the things that make you like Mango!
  2. Leave me a comment letting me know when you have posted so that I can grab the link.
It's that easy! I will collect all the links and then have an exciting contest where my pals out in blogland will vote for which doggie is most like Mango (ladies, your entries are welcome too, a she-Mango is a great thing to be).

Important NOTE! I am going to have to say that any doggies who are actual mastiffs are excluded since we all already know how cool you are and it just wouldn't be fair to all those mastiff wanna be's, right?

ALL ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED BY SEPTEMBER 25th!

Of course few doggies will embody all that is the Mango. I mean, seriously, there is only ONE ME! Right? But here are just a few photos demonstrating all that goes into being my large and multi-faceted self (do not be deterred from entering if you do not have all of my unique and impressive qualities, even if you have mastered just one facet of being Mango you are on your way to victory).


I am an avid gardener.




Amazingly athletic!




I shun stairs (well except for my special mastiff stairs to the observation deck).




I am most patriotic.






A snappy dresser.





Totally loving rides in my mastiff mobile.







I can take a nommy treat without any humans losing a finger (PeeWee, take note).







I am quite handy around the house and eager to assist with manly tool time projects.








So I slobber a little, big deal.








I LOVE skool! Especially when there are hot gals there!






Well, then there is the topic of my Mango-ness...








I am kind to my idiot brother at all times.






I possess a remarkably expressive face...



Happy.




Sad.




Inquisitive, well, you get the picture.




I am kind to stuffies and never ever consume any part of them for momma poop detective to suss out.





And don't forget I am incredibly handsome.




Of course there is also my large and grammatically correct vocabularies. Yuh, I know many large words and I can use them in sentences and everything.

This sentence has many large words in it like defenestration and probabilistic and it also contains proper grammar, so there.


Oh! My wonderful singing voice too!


I could go on and on, but I think that gives you some attributes to which you must strive to be like ME!

Oh dear, apparently I am compelled to post PeeWee's allegations of what it means to be the Mango. Fine. You can read them here.

Best of luck!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Oh Mango..this is a wonderful contest. To think that you are relentlessly huge enough in your heart to think about your blog friends after your Mama has perpetrated such abominations on the Mango Cave....welll, it defies description.

Lola said...

To be like Mango? Well, your relentlessly huge awesomeness is kind of hard to emulate, Mango. Many will try, few will succeed. It's gonna be interesting, though. That's a fur sure.

lotsa licks, Lola

Mango, we don't think there could possible be any pup out there who could possibly rival you in your totality - you are just so awesome. But Ciara thinks she might be a better gardener, Mom says she does NOT want Ciara to prove it.

Ruby Bleu said...

Mango...what a great idea...the thought of being so honored to be like you, well there are just no words. I'll have to see if I can convince my Mom to help me enters...I would be honored to be in consideration to be a she-Mango!!!

Lots of Licks,
Ruby

That is a lot to live up to. We'll have to think about which one of us can hope to compare.

I'm in Mango, but I need a little more info... how do you feel about dried worms, deer poop and frog pancakes?

brooke said...

who doesn't want to be like mango?
can't wait to see the entries!

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

Mango...

Do you have the audacity to doubt my veracity and to insinuate that I may prevariacate? Your obnoxious disposition is beyond my recognition and if the terms I employ are too copious for your diminuative comprehension than I shall endeavor to articulate more particularly....

Fondly, Beast

Pee ess...

I'm a bit confoosed on the contest. First you said that it was about wantin' to be LIKE Mango. Then it was about LIKING Mango. Too different things in my mind. Now I'm at your door with my stuff...show me to the Purple Passion Dog Cave.

What time is ROTE?

Lacie giggles wildly...oops...I sent that three times...course it is an excellent comment.

Oh, perhaps I should do a contest on why YOU would LIKE TO BE ME??!!

I be finkin I hav no such mangoness yet but I be aspiring to such lofty heights

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

Oh, I'm TOTALLY in! Because even though I have a feeling I'm only a little big Mango, I SO want to be you (Mom might have to sleep on the floor if I actually WAS you, though...). I'm going to have to do some pondering to see how much like the RH I truly am. (Uh, I'm under 200lbs - does that count against me? Teehee.)

Hey Mango!
Great fun! I have done my post. Still getting the hang of this doggie bloggie stuff (rookie!), but I got it done. So many fun traits to work with...

Thanks for the good contest!

See about the rookie thing! How'd I do that three times?????

twinkietinydog said...

BOL I particularly enjoyed the variety of facial expressions. The photo of you on your back is hanging over one of my beds. As for the contest, since I'm a mastiff mix, I'm going to pass to allow other doggies their 5mins of Mango-ness
xo
Twink!

Priscilla said...

Mango!!
Your contest sounds like so much fun!!
However, there is a slight problem. Your face is too remarkable! I doubt many dogs can have so many expressions yet keep the same look :)

1000 Goldens said...

Your gardening photo is my favorite Mango Man :)

Jake of Florida said...

We are trying to decide if it would be the ultimate expression of chutzpah to try to emulate the relentlessly huge Mango in any one of his amazing attributes. There are certain (ahem) attributes to which we can no longer aspire. And we're afraid we've never been able to muster that inscrutable but oh so expressive physiognomy --- so we may just observe from afar -- but applaud the Mango Mama for letting her boy explore his inner Mango-ness in this creative way!!

Jake and Just Harry

Marjie said...

You are totally correct to exclude mastiffs. I possess all of those qualities in the greatest of abundance. It's wonderful that you're giving all those other doggies something to strive for!

Drools,

Oskar said...

Oh we will be sure to enter. I am an excellent landscaper & do happen to be excessively handsome!

This'll be GRRRREAT. Ruby and Penny LOVE to go Downtown to window shop and stuffs.

This sounds like oodles of fun!
We're putting our thinking caps on right now!

Love ya lots

Mango, thank you for having this wonderful contest. I am you inside of my (except the private parts). I run with the big dogs is my tag line and I will win because I AM MANGO!

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Oh my goodness Mango! We have so much in common, I know I will win. And even if maybe we aren't exactly alike in every way, I will use my Meryl Streep-esque movie star acting abilities to close the gap.

As I was saying, I am part mastiff, but I came back mainly to help you with that tune you got stuck in your head: The looove goat... na nana naa
I hope you've forgotten it already. BOL

ocmist said...

Sounds like another great challenge, though with the stuff going on around here, we don't know if we will be able to get up an entry to this one. The next few weeks are going to be busy ones for Grammy and Robert and they don't know how much they will be around until they get this "JOB" thingy they are working on, done. It's not a real, paid working type job, but it is a major undertaking that has a time frame than needs to be done. Picture lots of sobbing corgis sitting around... The CCC

Wild Dingo said...

I have to think about this... i mean, why even try to attain perfection when we're so far removed from it? it just seems so DIFFICULT!

sigh... we have to put our thinking caps on to see if we are worthy...

LucilleMia said...

Oh Mango,
how can I try...
I am already in love...
Your song is so beautiful, it came right through my heart!
We do have lots in common, but to make a nice couple... you know...
I know, you have a long list... but me and you have lots in common...
The way we are so active in the garden, the slobber we are so generous to give for free...
But still, your perfection is unique....
;)
Love
Lucille

road-dog-tales said...

What a fun contest! Can't wait to see the entries! Can't imagine how anyone could come close to being anywhere near like you! We couldn't even begin to compete with the "topic of your Mango-ness" 'cause none of us have any Mangoes! BOL!

Emma Rose said...

No one in our pack can enter this contest. Who on earth could be like Mango?????? Nope, not us :)

The Teacher's Pets said...

I was visiting Benny and Lilly's blog just now and I couldn't believe how much they are just like you, Mango, so I had to come over to see if their pictures resembled yours just to double check and they are your nemesis, fur sure!
I will be doing my best to be just like you so be watching for my post!
Hey, I not sure if you are following my blog but I am fur sure!

Pink Bicycle Society said...

OK So i am just like Mango but i think i am one upping him as i can run like lightning for a long period of time. I am good looking, loyal, funny- can eat really quick without burping and i make everyone laugh as i am so cut. My sister Miss Maisy thinks I am cool even when i give her the look- those big ole eyes. I - Lord Argyle - declares myself King of all Dogs but i can admit- i wanna be like Mango.

Hi Mango Man, you are the coolest. Even though I am a keen drooler and a rather large fellow myself, my Mum and I think you rock. Look forward to seeing all the entrants in your competition. Slobbers, Bruce from Down Under.

mayziegal said...

Hi Mango! Oh gosh! I'm so excited abouts your contest. Mom and me will have to start thinking on it right away. Thank you for giving us til the 25th since we just got back from vacation and all. How fun! But you know it's true - everybuddy DOES want to be like the Mango!

Martha and Bailey said...

That sounds like a cool contest Mango and we will get working on it.
We are rather hindered by a very uncooperative human at present but we will give her a good barking.
We can certainly roll in smelly stuff and slobber!
We reckon we could be like you!
love

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

Oh dear, it's hard to compete with the Mango. Everyone lacks in comparison!

Dozer and Coop said...

Mango, I have written my essay with pictures on how I am like you. I gave ten reasons which Mum said was more than enough - I think not!

http://dozerandcoop.blogspot.com/

Please enter me in your contest. Thank you! Do not let Cooper enter, he has no common qualities to you. He is a dork. If you have a Dexter contest, Cooper can enter that.

Love, Dozer

Honey the Great Dane said...

Ha! Ha! Mango - thanks for my first great laugh since coming back from holidays! That sounds like an awesome contest. Am not sure if I'll be able to enter coz Hsin-Yi is in some kind of hysterical tizz (see, I can use big words too!) with all her unpacking and catching up with work and emails and most of all, dealing with the 6 million photos she took on holiday! So I think she might be too busy to help me - but I shall enjoy reading everybody else's entries! :-)

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane
ps. I LOVE the "expressive face" bit - that is TOTALLY me too! Hsin-Yi says I use it to my advantage so that people always think I look really sad and abused and feel sorry for me - but hey, can I help it if my jowls and eyebrows naturally fall into sorrowful shapes? :-)

The Teacher's Pets said...

Hello Mango...It's me, your coonhound pal, Daisy, and I just posted my entry fur the I WANNA BE LIKE MANGO CONTEST and I hope you like what I said about you....here's the linky....http://theteacherspets.blogspot.com/2010/09/i-wanna-be-like-mango-contest.html

Nobuddy could ever be exactly like you butt, if we could be just half as sweet as you are that would make us very happy!!!

Thanks! oxoxoxoxoxoxox!
