I am like Mango because... (10 reasons why)

Mango has this great contest going on wherein one does a blog entry as to why they are like Mango or why they are a Mango wanna-be. As I have always held Mr. Mango in the highest of regard, it is easy for me to share how I have taken on some of his most sterling qualities. Shall we begin?

I am like Mango because....(10 reasons why)

(1) I have enormous teeth with which I terrorize my brother, Cooper. (Mango does the same with his brother, Dexter).

(I know this is a most scary of pictures but it was a controlled bite-fest and no one was hurt)

(2)  I am a patriotic dog and I am fighting the war on terrorism here in Philomath, Oregon. Since I started my unit, Osama Bin Laden has not been seen in the area. (Mum said Osama Bin Laden has never been seen in this area but that is immaterial).

(3) I helped send out the alert that our local food cooperative, First Alternative, was serving Mango smoothies this Spring and organized a local boycott. We sent a powerful message that Mango smoothies were just wrong!

(4) I am a snappy dresser, like Mango, and try and dress for each and every holiday.

(5) I am able to do controlled pee'ing so that Cooper and I can do synchronized pee'ing in the yard. It's not as easy as it looks.

(6) I am incredibly patient with my parents and let them use me as a prop for parades and other self-centered activities. I rarely bite small children who pull my ears and I let old ladies coo over me.

(7) I sleep in the most amazing postures, like Mango, except unlike Mango, I got no family jewels because I got tutored.

(8) Like Mango I am incredibly brave and did not cry in either of my two knee surgeries and only made a couple of rude comments when I was on the morphine. Plus, I look adorable when I am asleep.

(9) I am a dedicated sentry and rarely sleep on duty.

(10) I was the first dog in the family and made all the family pictures much more appealing with my "corginess" and yet, I have never been one to draw attention to myself.

That is pretty much my essay on how I am like Mango. Perhaps you should enter the contest! Click here and learn how you can enter.

Now I am off to stuff the ballot box if I can find it.

Love, Dozer

PS: Please keep my friend Howie PeePants in your thoughts and prayers. He is in the hospital because of pancreatitis. Go visit and let his Mum, Nancy, know you are pulling for the big guy. We love you Howie, get well soon!

Wow! I can totally see how much mastiff you have in that wee little body. You are, indeed, very mango-like.

Hey Dozer - great post & you'll get my vote! Wanted to ask about your knee surgeries though. I have a ruptured cruciate ligament & am scheduled for surgery this week. My asst. is wondering if that's what you had... if so, did you blog about it & when? She'd like to know what kind of surgery you had & how good the outcome. Thanks.

We are purring for Howie PeePants and hope he is better now.

Synchronized peeing sounds as if it should be an Olympic event, we shall have to try that.
