Why I Don't Compete at Mango Minster

Some alert readers have asked me "Hey, Dexter! Why don't you compete in Mango Minster?"

The answer is quite simple. How fair would that be to all the other wonderful, yet, I'm just being honest, inferior competitors? Yes, friends, it is a fact that yours truly is the "best most wonderful all around dog in the world." That is a direct quote from my momma and she should know, right?

Sure, if the RH is within ear shot, she always tries to spare his feelings by adding the modifier "lab" in their someplace (as in "you are the best - lab - in the world"). Leaving the simple beast to assume that there is still room for him at the top of the wonderful dog list.

But let's look at the evidence, shall we?

Too Darn Cute

Oh squeeee! You know you want to.

Adventure Animal

No machine too big for me!

Bad Sport

I'm not sure why the fact that momma is obsessed with touching my teeth every time I get a nom justifies the "bad sport" moniker, but apparently in some circles it does.

Working Stiff

You missed a spot! There! Over there! Pay attention!

and of course...

Cracker Critter

Come and get me, baby Shamu!

So, as you see, what fun would there be to see me in the winner's circle five times over? Not much, right? No, I will stick to my blogging and let other, lesser dogs, have their little competition.

Dexter done!

Hey Dexter!
Wow, I'm certainly glad that you sit this out so others have a chance! You would definitely sweep every category. Love that big dirt-digger machine! Where can I get one of those?!?

Hi Dexter! Can't argue with you on that one, you would totally win, paws down!

Millie and Walter said...

Thanks for staying out of the competition. It was hard enough competing against those that did enter. You sure are a well rounded dogie.

Ms. ~K said...

Amber DaWeenie said...

You are sooooo thoughtfur, Dex. You'd take it all if you entered!

The Thuglets said...

The Army of Four said...

Well, yeah. When you're right, you're right, Dex!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

I (Frankie Furter) suspected this all along.

Golden Samantha said...

You are so ethical, Dexter, for you are definitely da bomb in all dogetories. Thank you!

Well, the whole reason Mango even holds the competition is in hope of finding ONE dog that is superior to you in some way...are we right??

It's tough to be perfect in every way, Dex...

Dexter you truly are the BEST IN SHOW, there is no disputing it. It was very generous of you to stay out and let everydog have a chance.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hello Mary Poppins, er we mean Dexter. Yes, totally perfect in every way, we agree. After seeing the evidence, and hearing what your Momma says, we are glad you gave everyone else a fair chance. Have a great weekend cool dude. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Marjie said...

It's very generous of you to let others believe they're special, Dex. I'm sure you're the best. But be nice to Baby Shamu, OK?

Molly the Airedale said...

Bless you for steppin' aside, Dexter!

Love ya lots,

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

Those would be impossible to beat entries. Such cute pictures.

Have you thought about having your own blog so can continue you wise and intellectual posts regularly after Mango Minster is over?

Very generous of you,Dexter.....BOL!

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Cowspotdog said...

No competition labradude - you would surely win all the categories

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Abby seconds the comment from Sammie and Avalon and commends Dexter for his high ethical standards in refusing to compete in a contest started by and indeed named after his brother. Dexter thus spares the other contestants some serious competition and spares the judges the untenable position of having to judge the boss's brother. Well done, Dex.

After seeing all this proof, I can understand why you don't compete. How thoughtful and smart of you. Besides, it really wouldn't look good for you to win all the categories. That could lead to an investigation and then who knows what would happen?

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Moose said...

I am so glad you don't enter Dex, I agree it would be almost a sweep for you. I still think you are a goody two paws though. I remember when I was at the estate there were totally easy to steal noms on low shelves in the pantry. What's that about. Still I think it is very diplomatic that you have stepped aside.

Achieve1dream said...

LOL! Tell them how it is Dexter!! That picture of you in the pool would totally win with me btw. :)
