OK, I have decided that the only way to combat the evil of the Westminster Kennel Club is to hold my own doggie show right here in Master Chew Sits. That's right! Announcing the first annual Mango-minster! Whilst hopeful (and hapless) non WFT doggies descend on NYC, I will conduct a parallel (and completely fair) show of my own.

Please pee mail your entries to me
Your Name
Your Breed (Non AKC recognized breeds welcome)
Group you will compete in (Working, Non-Sporting, Hound, Herding, Toy, or (ugh) Terrier)
Link to your bloggy

Note that contestants agree to let the Mango mine their bloggies for potential supplemental competition photos.

Judges will be announced shortly.
Each Best in Group will get an official prize.

Let's show these Westminster guys what a real doggie show is!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Whilst preparing for the show, the Mango might be a bit indisposed, so please forgive me if I do not visit your bloggies as often as I would like.

P.P.S. There is no, I repeat, NO evening gown or swimsuit competition (this means YOU Lacie Beast).

I was so afraid I would have to go shopping! That would have eaten into my nap and/or walk time!

Woo are SOOOOOOO The Man-GO!


Technodoll said...

Oh we are definitely participating! Wooo!

Do we win a date with the Mango-man?



Abby said...

Hi, Mango...

Oh...This is gonna be fun...

My Mom says we'll do a photo shoot on Saturday...

Abby xxxooo

Gus said...

Teka wants to know if there is going to be a talent competition. She wants to demonstrate how to put a body check on a doggie twice your size and bring him to his knees.

(and guess who she practices on!)

Pei In The Life said...

I'm in! Any particular pose we should strike?

Unknown said...

Sign me up! There may be plenty of Scotties and Westies who have won Westminster (and those are breeds that came from Cairns!) but there's yet to be a Cairn terrier winner!

No fair.

Your pal,

I gotta get my mom/secretary to enter me into MANGO-MINSTER!!!!!!!

Love & Licks,

Joe Stains said...

This is going to be the best dog show in history

Princess Patches said...

Mango, we would be honored to judge your Mango-minster dog show! We'll keep all the terriers in line! Thanks for asking! You can pee-mail the pictures to:

We'll let our personal secretary do the judging since we AIRE-heads might be slightly impartial!

Molly the Airedale said...

oooooooooooo, this sounds like fun! We're in!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Michelle said...

Mango! What a great idea. We will send in a photo. But this is going to take some serious deliberating because Rilety the Catahoula is a hound and Catahoula mix. Therefore she is some sort of hound, working, herding type of bi-ethnic doggy.

I also believe tomorrows post on our bloggy will be "photos to help Miss Riley the Catahoula win..."

Oh, Mango, you ARE a genius doggy!

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

What a pawsome idea! I glad I don't have to wear swim trunks! What kinda piccures should we send. Good on you for uncovering the discrimination, you should be a reporter!

Moco said...

No doubt this will take over the spot of that "other" dog show on the USA channel next year. Who would not want to watch this show over that one where humans are running around a ring in suits, dresses and funky shoes.

Unknown said...

Cool! Madison feels like a starlet (kind of a GIANT starlet!) She is playing ... we will do a photo shoot by the fountains and kind of combine a -minster and -scenic theme! Now she is demanding a grooming ...

Noah the Airedale said...

Good stuff Mango man. We're in but we'll have to get our entry in tonight as we're off to the kennel tomorrow.

Kelli said...

Mack said...

Finally! A dog show that is for us!!
Count me in!

Mack said...

PS: Paris wants to know if just she can compete in the bathing suit category?

Asta said...

Mango I would love to entew,but it sounds like thewe might be the teeniest bit of pwejoodice against tewwiews (specially wiwes) at Mangominstew.
Let me know if you thinnk it's wowf even entewing undew the ciwcumstances
love and smoochie kisses

Eric said...

UGH...UGH???? Did I read that right Mango??? PREJOODICE OR WHAT??? Fair?? OUTRAGEOUS!!!!
Fab idea Mango but can't be bothered to enter cos seems there's no point. Specially if I can't put on a bathing suite or evening gown for the final judging.

Eric (sulking)

Lacy said...

w00f's mango and dexter, count me in, me will hunt a piksur...hmm, buttt me not shure which category to enter..

b safe,

wally said...

No swimwear! Well, I"ll put back my bikini but we are most def going to enter! Oh I'm so excited. But, uh, they're not going to try to grab my goodies like they do in the dog shows, right?

wally t.

ps. Is there going to be a hot dog eating contest as a part of this?

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Count me in, count me in.
I want to support you and the Mangominster! I'll do my best shot!

Ruby Isabella said...

Well done Mango for exposing this scandal. Count me in to your competition. It's about time a competition accepted mongrels.

Lorenza said...

I am going to send my picture Mango!
Kisses and hugs

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

Dear Mango...

I would prefer if you did NOT address me as Laciebeast. Actually, I sorta like Laciebeastie...sounds more you said NO BIKINI OR EVENING GOWN competitions...well...I still have some thoughts.

I'm entering my brothers and me...we're hopin' the judging is's so hard to believe that a Scruffy dog has one the "other show" so many times...I mean I live with one...I can tell you this guy isn't even close to breed standard....

Love and hoooooooge kisses to you my pet, Mango...


Oh...can I put ya in for a groomin' of ur sanitary section??????

Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

So Mango, what are the criteria for judging? Can we Newfs enter as Terriers since they always win? What kind of picture do you want?

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh great to hear that you are conducting your own show! I am sure this one will be totally unbiased and fair.
(And for once, non AKC recognised breeds aka ME, will be able to participate!!) You are the best, Mango Boy!

Biggie-Z said...

COUNT ME IN!!!! What are the judging criteria? Can I only send one picture in? Does Momma have to groom and brush me? (Cuz that could take DAYS...)

Ohhh, I can't wait to show my doggie Mom and Pop and Dani and Yetti and Spirit what I can do!

Mason Dixie said...

Hello there, I am Mason and I have sent you my info to join your contest. =)

Lady Kaos said...

COOL! I'll try to get my entry in tomorrow!

Raising Addie said...

Very cool contest!!!

We will get our photos for you!

Thank you very much!!
Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie & Lucie

Mr. Puggle® said...

ahhhhh hahahaha. mango, this is really creative. very clever. i won't be competing because you don't have a "Just Eating" group. can't wait to see who wins best in show.

Clover said...

Hi Mango!
Can I be your new friend? My name is Clover, and I am a pug. This contest sounds super exciting! I am going to send you my entry! I think I belong in the non-sporting category - yikes, some tough competition!
Love Clover xo

OOooooo... It's the morning of the 11th (1:21 a.m.)and I just found out about this... With all that's been going on, I got behind on my blog reading.... Sorry I missed this one... Maybe next year, unless you don't allow Pembrokes? Still my Dotter and BG (Both Chorgis) would have loved to have participated. Mom loves looking at the pics though!!! Again, so sorry to have missed out... You took on a MANGO sized chore, looks like!!! But it also looks like everyone is having MANGO sized FUN!!! Love, OC
