Time for That Other Doggie Show and Snow Status


Friends, even as Mango Minster is winding down, that other dog show is starting up. Yup, time once again for the most biased totally not fair dog show of the year. And you can bet I will be watching just to confirm my suspicions once again that the show it rigged for sure.

You can re-read my shocking expose here wherein I have tabulated the results from years past to prove that those Westminster judges are totally terrier biased and anti mastiff. Yuh.

All it takes is one look at the judges table to see why.




I have no doubt that one or more of my nieces and nephews will be entered as my brother Flyod has sired about 8700 litters (score). I am still trying to hunt down their reader's choice polls.

Of course, it is difficult for me to maintain my huffy cloak of outrage after receiving this most sweetest card from the lovely Miss Asta. Smoochies right back at you for sure.





Even though it has been warmer, we are still suffering from the big snow. Good news is that I have recommenced my walkies. Of course the Pea, being a midget, is able to do zoomies on top of the snow whilst I, Mango, remain relegated to the safety of the potty paths.






I am happy to report that given the way he flings his wee little labraself about, there are still the occasional satisfying crashes and tumbles.






And inside the estate, I am still top dog for sure.







Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Momma is making me post this labramovie. Whatever.

I hope you are resting after all your exertions announcing at Mango Minster! And it is good to see that you can still put the smackdown on PeeWee.

Ambrose has become insufferable since he took 2nd place in Bad Sports. You are very welcome to come down here and live with me and I will ship Ambrose up there so he can run around in the snow like a loon with your labradork brother. It is sunny here, no snow and it it going to be 70 degrees today. I have no stairs at my place and while I don't have an observation deck I do have a nice patio where you can do your meditations. Let me know when you will arrive.

Your friend,
Niamh

Happy Valentine's Day:)

That other show that shall not be named can't hold a candle to MangoMinster.

Dogs with webbed feet have an advantage on snow. Of course, that advantage becomes a disadvatage in areas that are more intellectual.

Ina in Alaska said...

Stopping my to say Happy Valentine's Day to you all! Looks like Dexter is enjoying all the snow, .... is there a tutorial site you can point me to where I can add the music to my You Tube videos? I cannot figure out how to do it and the music adds so much to the videos. (my email is ijoffret@gmail.com) Any suggestion is helpful

Glad you enjoyed the home redo. That man had quite a mess on his hands!! He did an amazing job!! I am sure he has been overwhelmed by the neighbors' response. I am not the only one who has thanked him profusely for restoring our property values... and would you believe there is another hoarder house down the street!!! No sign of them leaving though. Sigh. xo

OUr snow is melting. Paws crossed for an early spring!

woof - Tucker

(I thinks all big dogs get excluded from the votes in that other doggie show.)

Frankie Furter said...

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO BOTH OF YOU AND YOUR MOMMA AND Mr. MASTER TOO!!

Beans4Biscuits said...

The momma always says 'the fix is in' during that fake 'contest'. While you may not watch the toy group, I watches it, and where is the shih-tzu winner??? Those dang Poms just run around yapping and in desperate need of some frizz-ease!

Now that we has our brother Hannibal the Boxer, this years show will be UNBEARABLE with his gloating.

Just YUCK

bbes tribe said...

We agree - hardly EVER does the right dog win that contest. The judging must be fixed (the pic above tells it all)

Even if the video was all about the labradude we really liked it. Mango you are the best - sharing the stage with the "little" dude.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Your snow is so nice and firm. Ours is all mushy and soft. And now with temps in the 50s we have MUD. Ciara is in heaven, Mom is not happy:(

Good to see you back in charge of your blog, but we always enjoy seeing the Labradork run and have fun.

Happy Valentine's Day to you from all of us.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

You two must be holy molies because you can walk on water, or at least frozen water. I'm sure the snow has its downside, but it looks really, really FUN!

mayziegal said...

I remember when I read abouts that "other" dog show last year on your bloggie and how it was rigged and stuff. I was shocked. SHOCKED, I tell you! I will be keeping my eye on it but I'm sure you will, once more, be proved right. Sigh.

I sure do think you're Most Amazing for organizing a totally fair and unbiased show likes MangoMinster every year. Wouldn't it just be super pawsome if we could gets it on TEEVEE?

Wiggles & Wags,

Congrats on all of the winners of your wonderful and fantastic contest!
Sending Valentine's wishes to you and those that you love and hope you all are having a fun filled day!

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

The other dog show also encourages ridiculous haircuts for poodles, thus giving them an unwarranted reputation for being all high-maintenance floof-balls who can't do anything because they are always waiting for their nails to dry. Do they ever talk about the poodle team that ran the Iditarod? Nope. It's all about stupid haircuts. I'm just saying... Oooh. Sorry, Mom's been put on steroids and her crankiness seems to have spilled over a bit! ;-)

Hi Mango - good to see you back on your blog! And that picture of you playing with Peewee...wow! Didn't know you actually had that much rotation in your legs! :-)

Slobbers,

Carol from Down Under said...

Oh everything is back to normal. The excitement has ended. But hey, lots of new blogs to read thanks to the Mango Minster. Thanks Dexter for holding the fort while Mango was so busy. Happy Valentines Day. No worries, love Carol.

Oskar said...

You must be exhausted after all of this excitement. Your DOH has outdone her self!

Happy Valentines Day friends,
Oskar

Au and Target said...

Fun blog! Happy Valentine's Day to you too. And thanks for your kind words. Au ate last night AND this morning!!! We're hoping this means he's decided to live. He's a tough kitty so if he has the will, he should recover. Thanks for the woofs. We really appreciate it.

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

What Carol said, especially about getting to know so many new doggies & kittehs as a result of Mango Minster. MM is certainly one of the top social events of the petblog calendar! Thanks again, Big Guy & Mango Momma!

Sure hope you get a SLOW melt of all that snow.

Jed & Abby

Lorenza said...

Is there any other show better than MM??
I don't think so!
I am not so sure I want to watch it!
More snow! And Dexter looks happy!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Kisses and hugs
Lorenza

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Well Mango, we have to agree that MM is much better and fairer than Westminster. BUT we are still kind of excited that a Shar Pei won best Non-Sporting this year. First time ever at Westminster. Maybe she took a hint from MM and presented the judge with some incentive. In any case, we're totally wagging our tails tonight.

tula said...

Hey Mango-- smoochie kissies for Valentine's day. Hope woo didn't spend it the entire day with your labradorky brudder. at least get momma time.

just sayin.

Seraph said...

hello Mango! nice going through your blog.... you're so huge i think i would look like a tiny bee next to you....
Love, Seraph

KB said...

Peewee sure is having a great time on the snow. I can see his paws spreading out to make him float on top of it.

Do they make dog snow shoes? Maybe you need some Mango...

I can see the terrier fix at the show but, with a Valentine like Asta, maybe you should just keep your snout shut about it :)

Marjie said...

Zoomies are absurd, and even more so in the snowy time. Pee Wee should stop being such a goof!

Momma told me we will totally boycott that anti-Mastiff other dog show. Harry's Law, Lights Out, Justified, and anything else she can think of instead!

Drools,
Thor

Tessa the Maltese said...

Hope that you ALL had a

Happy Valentines Day!

As far as That ding dong doggie show I agree with you totally! Too many of those terrier types win, definately skewed!


woo woos, Tessa
