Mango Minster 2010

I am sure that by now you have all heard that Sir Mango is hosting  Mango Minster, the dog show for all kinds of puppies, not just the high falootin' ones!! Bilbo and I are all packed and ready to go...

Let's go people!!
Bilbo here and I am entering the Herding Breeds....

You may ask, "Bilbo...why are you entering the Herding breed???"

Well, being the alpha puppy, I am in charge of herding my humans. I herd Mama through her morning. From her exercise time to her shower time (when I get my first treat reward) until she leaves for her work (and I get my second reward).

At the end of the day I am responsibly for getting my humans to bed. At around 9pm every night I will make sure that they know it is time to head up the stairs to the night night room!


I is a SQUIRREL!!!!!
Now on to ME!! I am entering the Sporting Breeds. As you can see, I am a VERY good sport because I let my Mama dress me up as A SQUIRREL last Halloween!! I also am a big fan of walkies and bye bye rides in the car!!

We want to thank Mango for missing many meditations because of all the hours of work involved in the show, and thank the Mango Mama for letting him put this together!!

Hi Dory and Bilbo,
You two are too much! I hope you both win.

Have fun!
Luv, Lucy (Woof!)

Santa and Minnie said...

Those are great entries! Good luck and may both of you win.

ScrapsofMe said...

Hi Dory! I sent Puffies picture in for the Bad Sport group. teehee. You are a most excellent herding doggie, but you are also a very sporty type too, going after those squirrels with warrior princess spirit.

I'm waiting on a sub-group, like fluffy pantaloons or hot chix.


JackDaddy said...

You are making it very hard to decide who to vote for!

I hope everyone wins!

Samantha said...

Great herding, Bilbo! And Dory - missed that totally pawsome outfit!!! We know your hoomans couldn't pawsibly do without you both!
Hugs xo

Twinkietinydog said...

Uh-oh! I'm in trouble now. I, I, I'm entered in your category, Dory. Oh, no, I'm starting to worry now. Oh, well, your photo and explanation made so much sense, all I can say is: may the best canine win. Good luck! Good luck to Bilbo too, of course.

The OP Pack said...

You two have done a great job of presenting yourselves in your categories. Good luck and let the competition begin! We are really excited to see all the entries.

Life With Dogs said...

Don't let Tank Colnar see you in that costume! ;)

Good luck!


that's so true- it take pure sportsmanship to put up with momma's games.
good luck!

Wild Dingo said...

those are GREAT photos Dory. I like Bilbo as a herding dog! That makes so much sense. i'd like to see those herding breeds do the work he does... it must be HARD!

and you ARE a good sport. Squirrels are EVIL!

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

Best of luck to you both Dory and Bilbo. We try our best to herd the humans to bed but they refuse to go till nearly midnight - how dare they!
Lovin' the squirrel costume, you are a very good sport indeed to wear it.
Wags and kisses, Dinah Bridget and Elliot xx

Samantha said...

Yes, I can see it! Most definetely herding and sporting dogs. :p

dewdana said...

wow you are a very good sport indeed Dory! I bet you had lots of doggies chasing you while you were sporting that outfit! he he!
Good luck for the big show!

SquirrelQueen said...

Bilbo you do a fine job of herding I'll bet. Humans always need reminders of what to do. Miss Cindi is also very good at herding, for a kitty that is!

Dory you make the cutest squirrel ever, we love your costume. Good luck to both of you at the dog show.

Hugs & purrs,
Judy and Cindi Lou
