To My Loyal Fans

I just couldn't believe it when Mom told me I won "Reader's Choice" at Mango Minster 2010. There were so many great hounds competing it still just blows my mind! Thank you so much to each and every one of you that voted for me. I am greatly touched.
Let me set the scene for you.....
Mom comes home from work, brings in the groceries (nothing in there for me), puts the groceries away, and then gives me my daily treat. Just normal stuff. Nothing special, right? Then she boots up the computer and quickly checks Mango Minster and sees that I won. She came into the living room to tell me and sees me napping under my covers. 
She yanks the covers off me and wakes me up. 
"Twix, why are you sleeping? Your public has spoken!"
Huh? What? 
What in the world are you talking about? 
You really have lost your marbles haven't you? 
I don't know what she was expecting me to do. 
I wasn't hearing any food being opened in the kitchen.
"Twix, you won Reader's Choice at Mango Minster!"
I'm not sure I heard that correctly.....she assured me I did.
Oh, my, I'm feeling faint.....
Next, the Pupparatzi showed up....
I had to give my adoring public what they were waiting for.....
Ok, enough already! 
Stop, please stop!
One more? Ok....but only of my paw. 
I'm certain my cute feeties are what cinched the win for me.
Thank you to all who voted for me. I am honestly stunned!
As Frankie Furter said.....
I'm a Winner Wiener!

Onto the news about the actual competition part:
The judges came into the ring first. Don't Martha and Bailey look totally fab? Um, I'm not quite sure what to say about Mango though. You don't suppose he was pranked do you?
Winner of 3rd place was,,, 
Winner of 2nd place was,,,
And first place goes to.....
A true hound if I ever saw one!
Now, get over there and vote for your favorite in the Herding Group!
Also, stop by Mango Minster to view all the judging results and to get links to all the competitors and judges.

Mommy is so ready for spring. Our hibiscus plants got burnt with all the hard cold & Mommy doesn't think they will come back. She loves the flower pick you posted the other day, we had some that looked just like that.

Hi Twix

We are so happy that you won the hound group.
Hay, maybe someone should let the AKC and Westminster know about the win, the public has spoken and it seems like a wiener dog never wins at the AKC or Westminster dog shows.

How did you know, Twix? That we're loyal? And you are correct! As for your face when you got the news... priceless. You were really shocked, huh? Way to go! Congrats to all entrants and winners both! As for the voting, it's nuts. I love what they're doing over at MM. I believe today my category, Sporty Dog gets a preview. Wish me luck, Twix!
