Shameless Commerce Division

Now the Mango does not typically enter photo contests except for those sponsored by DWB (and even then only when certain DOH's are not feeling lazy). However, I noticed that the folks at Orvis were having a cover dog / fund raising thing and I could not resist because;

  1. The dollars go to doggie cancer research which is totally a really good cause and
  2. I am sick, sick, sick of seeing idiot labradoinks on the cover of their dumb catalog.

So I set to finding just the right photo. Momma chose this one because she says it is so cute who wouldn't love it? Bah!

Then Pea says, "oh use this photo because it is a sure winner." Yuh, like kind of missing the point there, little dude.

Personally I think this is one of the best portraits of me ever but momma said that it wouldn't win because not everybody is enamored with my big dog slobbers. Whatever.

So we compromised on this one. Nice, neutral background. No slobber, no lipstick, and certainly shows off my handsome mastiff face.

Now to vote for me you have to donate $1. You get one vote per dollar so for, let's say, the small sum of $87 you would get 87 votes. How cool is that?

If you are on board just click on this link and then type Mango in the keyword bar to find my handsome self.

Thank you for your support.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Sadly, voting is only available to folks in the US or Canada. Sheesh.

Oh My Dog Mango...we are just listening to Car Talk when we done seen the headline of this bloggie!!

Oh, Pee Ess...our mom had a dream about you and Pea last night! She said she was doggie sitting you guys and *ahem* not doing a very good job of it. I think The Mango may have gotten away from her once or twice. Hee Hee

We think you should have used the empty bowl photo from yesterday. It might have brought care packages to you filled with treats.

Good luck in the contest! I am betting you can sweep the competition with the mastiff vote, since I bet you're the only one who entered. All the Labrador votes will be divided!

I'll be surprised if you don't win, Mango!

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!

How long does the contest run? Mom gave you 5 votes already, and we're with you. Even though Orvis is all about hunting and fishing and stuff, who's to say that your Relentlessly Handsome self can't represent the non-labradorks of the world? The reason we ask long it runs is that Mom sells old books and DVDs and stuff on and then uses that money for her donations to various doggie causes (you know, surgery fund raisers, getting your handsome face on a catalog, etc.). She doesn't get her next installment of money (a whopping $16, I think - it's not like she's making a killing here...) until the 8th of August. If you could let me know, so we can vote early and often - or at least often, we will do so. Thanks! And good luck, RH!

Nevermind - we just saw that it ends September 30th. Mom's going to list a bunch more books in the hopes that she sells some to get you in the running (so to speak, as we know 'the Mango' and 'running' are two phrases that don't exactly belong in the same sentence!).

You should be the winner for sure. There is nothing as handsome as a mastiff.


Nicole said...

I'm sorry I cant vote :-( but good luck. With such a cute face how could you not win.

We like the empty bowl one too. But the one you picked is a good one too. We are sure we can find some green papers for you, Mango, especially since it helps cancer research.

Good luck, pal.

Hi Uncle Mango, I would vote for you cause you are the Coolest and Most Handsome for sure, and I'm not saying this just cause you are my uncle. Mum liked a photo of you where you had slobber with a leaf stuck in it. Good luck. No worries, and love, Stella

Kari in WeHo said...

Cinnamon said...

Heads up my friend Mom says she would just love to grab your big floppy jowls and give you an Eskimo kiss. She would do it, trust me. We here have all been on the receiving end.

Best of Luck in the contest. I don't know how anyone could resist that face.


Au and Target said...

Labradoinks! MOL, we love it.

We're in Malaysia so we can't vote for you! It's just not fair.

Reilly / Bree said...

I think your header photo is also a winner - both you guys look great but you are the big dude and you should win - we are off to vote now - god luck dude

The Island Cats said...

Mango...all those pictures are winners! We like the dog-slobber one. It's so you.

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

♥Mona + Weenie + Mommy, too♥ said...

Hey Mango,

Mommy said we can use some of our allowance to vote for you, often!!

Mommy did a home visit Thursday for a family that wants to adopt a dachshund puppy to go along with the one they found wandering along a dirt roas near their country place. They were dog sitting 3 of their grand doggies and one is a mastiff named Gus. He was gentle giant and Mommy fell in locve with him. She's gonna do a post about him tomorrow. He is so handsome but not as manly as you. He's only 3 years and his two sister are dachshunds.

Hope yourm feeling all betters now. Mommy said she needs to find one of th temp things if the mnake samll ones too. Me and QWeenie don't like nothinb stuck up our butts.

I love the one of the Mango giving affections to the labradude, and the swimmer shots are always beauties with Dexter's most handsome furs against the blue water :)

Dozer and Coop said...

Mum is going to check our green paper supply and will see how many votes we can afford. She wants to know how cheaply we can stuff the ballot box, whatever that means.

PeeWee needs to be put in his place, doesn't he know its all about YOU? Silly dog.

Love, Dozer and Cooper

The Army of Four said...

Am I the only one who likes the slobbery picture best? Maybe a little more slobber, even. Really.

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Very Cool Mango!!! Good luck!!

KB said...

Way to go Mango and PeeWee! I like the one best of both of you... I'll go vote!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

OK, we snuck mama's plastic and voted for you. Vote early and often, that's our motto. Good luck!
