It's Sporty Dog Time (almost)!!!

Mom has to get this post up this morning, even though it isn't entirely relevant until later today... And for those of you who are ready to vote, there is a slight delay of games, as Mango's Mom has to get his brother back from doggie day care, and Mango's paws are a bit too big to operate the computer all on his own. So... if you go over to MangoMinster and don't see the voting for Sporty Dogs yet, come back later. And you can be certain that Mom will personally send you all emails when the voting goes 'live'...

Apparently, there are So Many Sporty Dogs, that Moose, the judge has decided to divide us into Good Sports and Most Athletic. Despite pictures of Dad sticking toys on my nose:

I have a feeling that I am really more of the Athletic Type, than the Good Sport Type. (Because let's face it, there is No Way I can compete with the picture of Dory (the consummate squirrel hunter) being put in a squirrel costume by her prankster Mom for being a good sport...) So, for those of you who might not know me, here are some of my Sportier Moments.

There is me playing football:

And playing football with Dad (not giving him the ball back right away is a game in and of itself!)

And here I am practing Doga:

And I am a consummate hiker:

Then there are all of my snow pictures...

I LOVE this stuff!


Anyhoo, I could go on and on (and if you are really curious, just look at some of my older posts).

And I will, briefly. Because I have ridden the Tour de France with Lance Armstrong, and I've assisted Tom Watson in last year's British Open (hey, it wasn't MY fault that he didn't win...)

But I wanted to give you a brief look into me as an Athletic Sporty Dog!

In Other News (because while you might not be able to tell from the past several entries, there are a few other things going on besides MangoMinster), Mom went to the pet store yesterday and bought A Whole Bunch of Stuff, like little toys, and Nylabones, and piddle pads, and puppy chow, and a little bitty collar that most certainly won't fit me, and a name tag that Most Definitely Does Not Have My Name On It. It says 'Abby'. Last time I checked, I don't need piddle pads, I have a big neck, and my name is not Abby. Apparently, my little sister is coming home Saturday!

More on this later!

Abby's coming home? Wow, how wonderful. Can't wait to hear all about it.
As for the competition, thanks for the post. I actually went and revised mine after reading yours. I was unaware we're competing today. Very impressive, my furiend, but don't forget, we're all "special" Ask our parents. BOL
May the best furiend win!

Mama thinks of your little sister every time she sees her namesake on NCIS, we just can't wait to meet her!!!

BRUTUS said...

Oh, Fiona - you are a MUCH more well-rounded athletic doggie than me! Bet that will come in handy when little Abby comes home this weekend - escaping form all her puppy antics will certainly require some deft maneuvers!! Good luck in MM and with the upcoming addition!!

Those are most excellent sporty pictures for sure. Have to love the face plant and the gimmie the ball all four flying one with your dad. You are amazing.
