My Official Entry

After much deliberation, I have decided to enter
Mango Minster 2010.

I have had a hard time deciding which group to enter because I have the potential to fit several of them. But I finally decided to go with my ancestry and enter the hound group. You see, us doxies are hounds. We are scent hounds bred to find badgers and capture them for our owners. Our job was to go into the badger hole and grab that monster with our big teefers and then our owner was supposed to grab our tails and pull us out, badger attached! I have to say, I sure am glad to be a pampered doxie princess and not a badger hunting doxie. I might just have to let go of the badger and bite you if you pull on my tail too hard!
My entry really has nothing to do with the information I just gave to you. I'm hoping the judges will be swayed by my knowledge and inclined to choose me....
don't tell 'em my plan, please.
I am entering the following photo into Mango Minster 2010:

I know, that doesn't look like a badger hunting hound but I was hunting whatever Mom had in her bowl at the time (she says it was an orange). So, instead of being a scent hound, my entry is showing my skills as a
Those of you who know me, know how much I like food. I will eat anything you put in front of me, except green olives. They are the only thing I refuse to eat. Strangely enough, dill pickles are one of my favorites. I will do just about anything to get food I want as shown in my photo. I have been known to snatch a piece of bread and butter off Daddy's TV tray. He he he! That is sooooo much fun! Not only do I get to eat it (swallow it whole is more like it) but Dad tries to chase me too. I could go on and on about my skills as a chow hound but I don't want to totally destroy the competition with my talents.

Hi Twix,

Chow hound you definitely are... and a smart one too for that matter with hound history. I like your pic, it reminds me of Meerkat Manor series on Animal Planet... hehe.

Good luck on the competition.

A Chow Hound? You're special. I loved your explanation as to why you belong in this cat-egory. Good luck to us all. May the best furiend win!

The OP Pack said...

Great entry, Twix, great explanation. We wish you lots of luck in the Mango Minster. It is funny what tastes dog have. Phantom is a very picky eater, turns his nose up to the best of foods, but LOVES anything Italian, especially sauce. But he gets a sick tummy if he eats it as much as he loves it. So Mom doesn't give in to him but does let him have plain pasta.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder
