Mango Minster Update

This doggie show chairing stuff is exhausting!

I am posting the names of all the entries in my sidebar so that you can size up the competition. If you send me a photo and don't see your name in the sidebar the next day, please send a reminder. I am trying very hard to keep track of everything, but the Mango sometimes gets confused.

Official rules are in my previous post.

To answer a couple of questions;

1) Non AKC breeds, please just tell me what kind of doggie you are and what group you want to compete in. All breeds welcome, maybe Westminster will take note of some of those one of a kind breeds.

2) What kind of photo? A winning one! Seriously, I'm not judging the group competitions, so you can wait until the judges are announced to send in your photos, but I assure you that all my judges are completely immune to any behind the scenes shenanigans.

3) Regarding group placement, you can go in the group that suits you (even if you are a purebred doggie that the AKC has placed in some other group).

4) I really hope we get more Sporting doggies cause so far just dopey Pee-Wee is entered. Oh yeah, and NO hounds so far. Where be all those hound doggies?

I'm trying to get my handler to khapture my special championne self in a flashy beast moment!

In the meantime, I did use the khrakhkberry to khontakht woo about your khwery!

I would be honoured!

But do I need to get some fancy outfit?
AND do I need to khlinch and khlench my fluffy tail cheeks?

PeeEssWoo: Is there something Fruedain about the 'working' group being a Friday AND a 13th?

Hi Mango! I love your blog and your Mango Minster idea! I hope it's okay if I enter. My mom had to look up what group I'm in on the computer - that's how much we know about dog shows!

Your pal,

We're gonna make mom and dad watch "Best In Show" again this weekend for inspiration!

Well done and what a faaab idea - Mango you rock!



Moose said...

Count Moose in the sporting dogs (dozing is a sport, right?) I will send his entry sans pic until I can find one (I hardly have any! LOL). I am glad the judges will not be influenced by the fact that the most wonderful dog of all (Labradogs of course) have NEVER been best in group much less best in show! I wonder if a pointer would win best in breed in the lab group with those crooked judges! travesty!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said... want me to back up judge the hounds and there are no entries??? I was going to ask if any of them dated, but I guess with no entries that it's a mute point....

Of course I can help ya out...

True terrier spirit..

We're working on it, Mango! Mom just ran to the store for more treats! We only work for food items!

Love ya lots

Dearest Good Looking Mango,

I just entered Mango-Minster. Please review my email application with an open mind. I am the most handsomest Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog that I know. I am glad that you are not as stuffy as those AKC judges. For they will not let any Catahoulas enter the ring.

I lift my paw in salute to the wise Mango,

Riley the Catahoula

We can't believe their are no hounds. OMgosh. Wimsey should get in the program. And what about River and all those beagles? We know there are lots! Madison is waiting for her groomer to prep her for a photo - we'll get one tomorrow. Right now she is extremely embarrassed of her shoddy, dog park appearance. Such a vain girl ... you should see her cheese in the mirror by the elevators.

Moco said...

We aren't sure where we belong. We will have to do some research into this before we enter.

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

I will enter Mango, I will get mum to help me choose a pic. Does I go in herding, even though I not likes sheep? Auntie Penny can go in sporting, she is a jumpy spaniel, that is sporting right?

Joe Stains said...

So what kind of security packages are being offered for the judges. Not that I am scared of any doggies (LACIE) or worry that I might be physically coerced into judging one way or another (LACIE)or possibly drugged (LACIE!!!). Anyway, I can't wait for this, it should be quite fun. Do the wheelies get to enter??

Lady Kaos said...

I'll compete against Dexter! I'll get Mom to send my entry tomorrow as long as her boss doesn't come check on her every hour like she's been doing allweek. If not tomorrow then hopefully Saturday morning!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Do I fit into the hound group??
or non-sporting??
I have no idea!
Kisses and hugs

Eduardo said...

I'm so excited I just peed on the floor! I can't wait! Hey, I'm half hound dog(beagle) can I compete in that catagory?

Ruby Bleu said...

OMD!!!! I have to find the bestest picture ever for this...Mango you are so cool!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Stanley said...

Alright, man!

I and my sissy are in, but that will just mean two more stinkin' terriers in the competition. Maybe I could list Stella as a farting dog. (Do you have that group category?)

Goober love,

Pee Ess
You better watch what you say about those Lakies. Seriously, dude. If you think they're formidable individually, you have NO IDEA what they're like when they band together.

Amber-Mae said...

Count us in too!!! So that means, do we have to stack? Or we can do anything we like in the pictures?

Lindsay said...

Hey Mango! Thanks for the comment on my bloggy about Mango-Minster! We would have totally missed out on it without your comment to let us know - The Girl has been most disappointing lately. We have not visited anyone, and she's even been too busy to take any pictures of me! But I will pick a picture from the vast number she's already taken, and I'll email you my entry! Wroooo! Pawsome idea, this Mango-Minster! Much better than those breedist dog shows!
