Your Dream Date - a contest of sorts

Let's face it, the Mango doesn't get out much. In fact with the exception of my brief yet curiously fatiguing perambulations up and down my street or trips to the spa or the vet or sometimes school, I just plain don't leave the estate.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the estate. It has everything a mastiff could want; food, sunshine, funballs training in the yard, and, of course, momma and master (oh yeah, and Pea I suppose).

But every now and then I yearn for an adventure... a really big adventure... a relentlessly huge adventure.

That is why, I, Mango, have decided to offer some lucky doggie or kitteh gal the chance for a dream come true. That's right... a date with ME! You heard it! Yup, I will squire one of you about town via the wonders of PhotoShop. Now who wouldn't jump at an opportunity like that?

So, if you are a girl doggie or kitteh and have always dreamed of spending time with my large and loving the ladies self, now is your chance. Just write a postie about why you would make the ideal date for the Mango by midnight on Saturday, June 25th and leave a comment so that I know you have posted. Then, one week from today, I will choose the winner and away we go!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Oh Mango you sly guy. I don't believe you're going to pick just one. ;)

Can't wait to see the hopefuls!

Ethel believes she might have a shot at this. She's going to get her hair done, get a new push up bra, some higher heels, and give this thing a shot.

Berts Blog said...

Oh Mango Man, Only you would think of this. I can't wait to see how you woo the lucky girl. I just know I will learn a lot from you.

How d'you feel about 13 year olds Mango?

Amber-Mae said...

OOOH Mango, there is gonna be a lot of ladies out there who will want to be your date! I would love to be your date too but my husband wouldn't be too happy if he found out. Yes, I have one. What? You didn't know? Nevermind.

Stella said...

Good luck finding Ms. Right or Ms. Not Wrong!

For me, I am going steady with Tsar of the Porties. How he can sing! I just love him, so I cannot apply to be your date, Mango.

Marjie said...

Dude, you're gonna have a hundred entries for sure! Have fun choosing the right lady!


Pee Ess: I don't leave my estate much either. Why leave a place that has everything a mastiff could possibly want?

Kasha The Dainty Great Dane said...

OH Mango....I just love a man that drools!!! But I don't know do you think you could keep up with an old girl like me??? Ha Roo!!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Gosh Mango, girls lining up for a date with you, we'll have to start calling you 'Fonzie'. With drool and lipstick, who could resist that combination. Take care big fella, no worries, love Carol

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

Hmmm. We totally want to go on date with you. (Could we both go on a date with you, or would it have to be one or the other?) Now, the question is, is it OUR dream date, or a date that you would enjoy, too? We'll work on something, and let you know!

Lucille, the Great Dane from Italy said...

Oh Mango,

I definitely cannot miss it :-)
You will have my news soon!

PS: tell your Momma that we really appreciated her lovely comment on our dance routine ... she made us blush...
But by the way... I loved your outfit in your dance lover boy... ;-)

Scooter said...

Hey Mango!
Wow, buddy, way to spice up things in Blogville! The girlie dogs will be all agog...simply agog! BTW: If you happen to hear from a little gal named Zona, please ignore her...she just got lost on her way to my blog instead. Okay?
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Barbara said...

Hey Mango? How would you like to meet a California girl? Trixie AND Minnie would both love to date you. We could teach you the fine art of lying in the sun and how to order California cuisine...please, pick us!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Rats! We were going to enter Pretty Girl until we saw the requirement to do a post, which neither we nor she can do as we don't have blogs. Sigh! You and Pretty Girl would make such a handsome couple.

Jed & Abby

monica said...

hmmm.... does the Mango have the urge to hear little Mange feet trot around ? is this what we actually talk about here?? huh - HUH?

DianeTaylor said...

Dang Mango - now I wish i was a girl dog, I mean REALLY, who wouldn't want a date with your handsome mug????

BTW You did a GREAT routine for Honey's doggie dancing contect - well done!!!

My human Diane's family all live in MA/RI - next time we come up there, I should look you up - except you'll probably be extra busy with all the ladies waiting for some Mango in theie lives, ha ha ha!

Your friend,

Indy Bones

Infrequent Flyers said...

What a fun contest! Cabana is IN. But I think to make the contest fair, Mango should let everyone know that he swings both ways. He does have a male roommate, after all, right?

Anonymous said...

Well, Mango, since I have a boyfurend already, I prolly shouldn't pawticipate as much as I know I would enjoy being escorted by your brindle and relentlessly huge self.

BUTT...if Jed and Abby wanna do a guest postie on my bloggie for Pretty Girl, I would be more than tickled for them to do that! Would that be okay?

Wiggles & Wags,

ForPetsSake said...

I don't know that my girls could handle all that handsome at once!
You have an award waiting for you on our Monday morning blog!

brooke said...

OOhhh Mango's doing online dating!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

We are trying to get caught up here, Mango. We loved your dance and Dexter's too - you both did so very well. We never could have done that. We hope you both do very well in the competition.

Ciara would love to go on a date with you but she is a little worried what her beau Kodiak would think. Maybe he wouldn't find out, but you know how word spreads in Blogville. We hope you find the pawfect date.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Amber DaWeenie said...

Oh dis is such a kool idea....I hopes I can gets da visitors off da puter long enough so dat I can officially apply for a date with da everlovin' Mango. (You wouldn't steps on me, would you, big guy?)

Jake of Florida said...

We'll take some of your "leftovers!" OK???

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Ellen Whyte said...

Now that sounds like fun! We'd love to but we live half way round the world from you. Plus, we're cats!

Khady Lynn said...

Wow, If I weren't already in love with Dave at the Ao4 I might seriously think about throwing in my application!


Cinnamon and Mint said...

Mango, can I come forward as a candidate, although I live far away? I believe that you can take me anywhere with your miracle, huge mastiff power. I can entertain you with my dancing! But, remember that you will need to entertain me too, as I am a little moody.

violett said...

Mango, unfortunately I am a boy. But I would like to have a date with you. Photoshop makes it possible, yes. Now only time mama must have ...
She goes to a big party at the weekend, "Pirates of the Caribbean" and has yet to meet a lot of preparations.
We'll see. The will is there

Kitty+Coco said...

Dear Gawd that slobber is sexy. Too bad we are taken already. We'll just have to admire your Mangonards from afar.


Coco Bean - The Princess said...

OH Mango - my sisters Lady Godiva & Truffle would LOVE to go on a date with you, but could you handle two girls on one date!? i will be sure to have them post about why THEY should win a date with YOU!

My sisters and i are having a special contest! Swing on my our bloggy and give us your two cents and you will be entered to win a special prize!

Tail Wiggles & Puppy Kisses,

The Life of Riley said...


I am a boy so Ican't enter your competition but I just wanted to say that mum and I have just looked at your video, and after seeing you do ballet (on Honey's DWTD) my mum and I think you are wonderful. The pea did a great little routine too, but being large and stylish at the same time takes a special degree of Mangoness.


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

Hey... So we decided to be proactive and take you out on a date on OUR turf. In case you've forgotten about it (or have amnesia), here's the link to your Great Adventure with us: Thanks for the fun times, Mango! We'd love to visit you at your stomping grounds!

WFT Nobby said...

Mango, I feel you might need some moral support from a well-travelled youngster. Would you consider a double-date? (Or perhaps you are worried that my sexy Scottish accent would distract attention from your magnificently slobbery self....)
Toodle pip!

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

Dear Mango. Lacie just passed out.

OK Mango, my post is up. The competition is steep. I mean Abby and Fiona; Darwin. Butt what the heck. I want an adventure. Especially with you...

Your pal,


CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Mabel is so tired from her post, she asked me to let you know it's up. Please pick her Mango... she worked so hard on it!


Cinnamon and Mint said...

Hi Mango! I will show you my latest trick if you choose me. My post about it is here.

Bailey Be Good! said...

Wowserz! I've been seeing posts all over about a possible date with Mango, so I had to come see for myself what it was all about. I'm too young to date (says mommy), but I wanted to wish everyone luck!

Woofs & hugs,

~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)
