YES! It is here! Bigger and better than ever. MANGO MINSTER 2011!

All the thrills!

The spills!

The glamour!

The adventures!

And the aliens? Huh? WTF?

So go visit the official Mango Minster site right away to read this year's rules and regulations and don't forget to add it to your google reader.

And with that, I bid you farewell for the next months whilst I assume my grand poo bah responsibilities. The Pea has been given my blogger passcode, oh help us, and I am trusting him to keep you posted on the day to day activities at the Mango Estate.

Here I am informing him of proper blog eat a cat. Hehehe. Does he look like he is listening?

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

We are thinking that we just might have to provide a winner's gift again this year. Momma will take us over to your new digs to check things out...

Sagira said...

Never heard of this before, need to go read about it and see if we can enter. :)

Priscilla said...

We missed last year's Mango Minister so we might have to join in on this one!

Are you going to be leaving us for a few months? Oh, I'm gonna miss you Mango!

Penny and Patches said...

OMD! We are soooooo excited! (and a little surprised that your DOH wants to do all this work again)! We will check out the site as soon as our mom is awake enough to comprehend what she sees!

violett said...

Mummy must go to read. If she understands the rules (properly translated) then we are present this year!
Lots of love

Jake of Florida said...

We have several things to woof:

First - Happy Barkday, Dexter. We know you've had to endure a lot in your first three years -- but we think you've done pretty well. I, JH, totally get the downsides of the dork status that our elder bros like to inflict upon us. So I say here's to ya'!!!

Second - We love your Mango Momma but we think there must be something in the Master Chew Sits water for her to undertake this pawsome but overwhelming event again. We're happy she is doing it -- but sggest perhaps she switch to champagne or some other beverage next year.

Third - We are so hoping our own mom will get off her butt and help us enter this year. Every year it's the same thing: "Gotta' work, dudes to be sure you have enough kibble." Kibble schmibble. This year is Our Year!!!

Fourth - We send the whole Mango family gazillion appreciations for all you do to keep us in joyful spirits -- despite some pretty scary moments!!!

So we're sending you all lots and lots of wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Hi Mango, its sooo exciting. Cant wait for it to all happen. Good luck Dexter with your big responsibilities blogging and Mango, at least some photos every now and then while you are away. Take care, no worries, love Carol.

Marjie said...

You have been training Pee Wee well. He will be an attentive guardian of your bloggy. Or something.


Remington said...

You are leaving? Why? I will have to go and look at this -- looks like it could be very interesting!

Homer said...

Ya! I missed it last year and I'm not going to miss it again this year!


PS: As this is my first time entering MM competition, can you please explain more when you mentioned that I need to write a post in order to enter? Are you saying that I should include some description on the photo entry? I'm going to send the photo now.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

Happy 3rd birthday Dexter!

We are very excited about Mango Minster 2011 - we will really enjoy following it.

Winning it last year was a real honour for us and it was one of our highlights in our end of year blog post the other day! Murray very proudly has his Mango Minster 2010 trophy on display beside his bed.

We wish all the contestants the very best of luck this year.

Loved the photos of you Mango with Norwood today!

take care
Clive and Murray

We are very excited it is that time again and will go check it out!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

PeeWee is clearly ready to assume the helm of the blog. Look at him, unflinching in the face of the Jaws of Doom. Go, PeeWee!

And Happy Birthday, PeeWee. We can't wait to see your party pictures, now that you are in control of the blog.

Jed & Abby

The Boston Lady said...

Even though I am late to the party, I am excited on behalf of my Boston household! On to read rules, etc. Happy Barkday to you Dexter! Ann, TBL. P.S. Mango, I passed up a lovely cocktail today at Red Lobster, Mango/Raspberry Colada. It just didn't seem appropriate...

Samantha said...

While we will miss your reports on what is happening at the Estate, we trust that you filled PeeWee in on all the important stuffs that we will be needing to know about it. Meanwhile, we are totally jazzed about MangoMinster 2011 and have had a jones for it ever since it ended last year! AWESOME!!!
Sammie and Avalon

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

To change the subject entirely: we just came from Dennis' dada's blog after reading Mango's fantasy-tastic book ending! Apart from the fact that Alsip bears a stunning resemblance to the Mango [working though your nightmares, Mango?], we found it to be a thumping good read! We just hope Mango is not also preparing to desert us here in dogblogland to launch his literary career. Although we would certainly buy his book.

Groucho is going to try and up his 3rd place finish last year and go for the win.
