Twinkie's Contest Entry - Show us Your Tongue

To celebrate National Dog Week, my good friend, Twinkie, is having a Show Off Your Tongue Contest. Well, given my distinct lack of victory in all contests I have entered of late, I decided that I absolutely MUST enter and try once again to earn free stuff for my large and hating to be a loser self.

With great vigor, I applied myself to search through my many and varied photos for just the right entry, but you know what? I am such a gentleman that I am not prone to sticking my tongue out like some deranged drooling monster (now my lipstick is another matter indeed, but that isn't what this contest is about).

For example, here is a discrete, but situationally appropriate glimpse of my tongue as I finish my foodables.

Hey! How did this photo get in? Clearly caught in a happy fun times moment when I briefly forget that mastiffs are ever dignified and never silly.

Here is a synchronized tongue flashing photo (you know, with all the appearances of the word "tongue" in this post one has to be concerned about what sort of google search hits will be coming up, but never mind that).

Now, see what I mean? This is just an opportunistic shot when I was trying to cool off my large and easily overheated self, but not really a contest worthy image.

What you do not see here is the idiot midget just out of camera range. I get very sad looking at this because it has my beloved orange monkey which PeeWee humped to death shortly after his arrival at the estate (ruh, roh, monkey and hump in the same sentence, more google search mayhem I suspect).

PeeWee is all pestering me. "I wanna enter! I wanna enter!" Shut up! I'm just including this because I think it makes him look like a dork.

Truth be told, the cracker dog running around for no good reason squirt is always getting puffy face curly tongue hot and quite frankly, I am sick and tired of seeing his big old labratongue sticking out and leaving droplets that could potentially contaminate me.

Does this count? Just checking...

After much consideration, I have decided on my official contest photos (Twinkie take note).

First, one of PeeWee. Hey! There are plenty more where this came from. Do you see what I have to put up with? Imagine this face being the first thing you see in the morning. Ish!

And, finally, ME! I suspect there might have been cheese in a can involved here, but Twinkie sad that was OK, so enjoy...

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. You know, a lot of the time I, Mango, post about my pals who have sickies or have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, so I wanted to share a super happy making news item with you today. Miss Lilac is 15 years old! Click here to go and wish her a Happy Birthday.


AFSS said...

Wow, that last picture of you with your tongue out is pawsome. Fenris doesn't show his tongue much either which we heartily approve of.

Fenris would love a mastiff, but (sigh) we don't thinks Daddy would be a thrilled. Us cats heartily approved of the bird suggestion but (sigh) Mommy said we had plenty outside to watch.

Seeing that RH manly tongue has us girls all aflutter!!

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

Gus said...

well, our favorite is the atypical, undignified one where your tongue is lolling out of the corner of your mouth and you look soooooo happy.


Unknown said...

LOL!! Love the tongue photos! Hope you get a pressie for them :))

oh wow! Miss Lilac sure is an old girl, but her humans must be so happy she's still with them!

SeaThreePeeO said...

Almost too much tongueage for one posty!

jen said...

That is a great tongue shot Mango!

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Why Mango, I think we have some tongue issues in common! You also have a rather spacious mouth, so it must be a related issue.

I have to agree that there might be some disappointed searchers googling for some of the words that are coming up regarding this contest. Hee hee!

lotsa licks, Lola

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Great entries, Mango. Our favorite is the second one, the undignified and silly one:)

Happy Birthday to Lilac - 15 years - that is wonderful.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

ps-We don't have Especially For Pets out west, so it was a fun place to visit...the store dog was a lovely Golden fellow who had gotten a haircut, making him very fluffy! x-c

Wow...those are super terrific entries, Mango! I'm trying to decide on one for myself and I'm working really hard to find one of Brudder Ranger but he must have some mastiff in him cuz Brudder Ranger tongue shots are kinda hard to come by.

Wiggles & Wags,

PeeS. We're working feverishly on our "Wanna be like Mango" entry.

Sue said...

Our Mom says she's just too tired to sort thru hundreds of pictures for the contest. Can you believe that?

Just think of the tongue akhtion had Miss Ashley arrived at The Estate on Sunday -

Oh well, maybe next time!


Mack said...

Those are two awesome looking tongues!
We were so happy to see Pretty Lilac is 15 today. She and Lilly need to start an old ladies club or something. Lilly is at least 17 and still full of p & v, if you know what I mean.

Pippen said...

Great tongue shots, dude! Looks like the competition for this contest will be fierce!

houndstooth said...

I was thinking you have a rather small tongue for such a big guy until I saw that last picture! You sure put a lot of thought into your entry! I have to look for some good pictures for us to enter.

Lilac is having the best day ever! She sends many thank you's to you for sharing her birthday! I hope I live that long, but I'm not in any kind of hurry.


Two French Bulldogs said...

Good job Mango, we think you beat out your brother P Wee

Kasha said...

I love these pictures! I think Dexter wins as loyal as I am to Mango!

rottrover said...

Love that last one Mr. Mango Man. I bet you're a good kisser!!

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

Hmm...who is this Miss Lilac? Did you paint your dog cave cuz of her? ARE YOU GOING TO MARRY HER?

(Lacie is a bit obsessed this week about weddings...Daddy is a bit obsessed about the check book...Mumsie's obsessed with her wrinkles and the fact she had her hair chopped off two weeks before the wedding.......but the nararator digresses....)

Now Mango...I'm countin' on you escortin' me down the aisle...


Kisses darling...

Lacie XXOO

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Funny, we have been wondering about Google searches, too, especially since our latest post is about us being all nekkid.... We love the tongue pictures! (There is a labradork in my latest doggie class, and wow, those labratongues are humongous... Eesh. How can you live with that?!?) Good luck. I guess we've got to scramble to get two entries together now!
