For Your Consideration - DIVA Entry/Cooper

What is it to be a DIVA? It is a life of work, modeling shoots, meeting one's fans, more photograph dates and of course managing one's image in print and on products. Is it an easy life? No but when one lives in the public arena, one must dedicate themselves to the beautiful life. Let me share my DIVA life with you.
 Yes, I am a male model. To keep myself in the spotlight, I visit my personal groomer monthly for a shampoo, cut and dry session. I use a variety of products depending on my photo shoots for the next week or so.
 Occasionally I will have a little wine to loosen up during a modeling session, but I find it can make my tongue somewhat loopy, so I try and it keep it to a minimum.
 I am not wild about the seasonal modeling jobs but I will wear what the fashion houses dictate. Thank goodness I didn't have to walk the runway in this monstrosity!
 When I first started out I did have some centerfolds taken for a magazine. I have since started litigation to get them back. It was a mistake, let's leave it at that.
 Portrait studies are always intense but I look straight into the lens and let my soul shine through.
 I try and do some public service photos when I am approached. I also try and visit the troops when the USO does their fun shows.
 It is exhausting being on the road, so one grabs shut-eye when one can.
 I always take time to meet with my fans, after all they have made me the DIVA I am today.
 I really enjoy the on-site photo shoots, particularly the beach.
 Note the nice angle to my head - I have a strong profile.
 Of course wearing a blue vest only accentuates my powerful chest, which the ladies love.
 Oh dear, another seasonal picture..
 ..they are so tiresome, it is hard to make some holiday fashions pop. Orange has never really been my color.
 I do, do some paw modeling. My fur can be high maintenance but it is worth it.
 I am politically active and try be on the cutting edge of what is coming out of Washington.
 I do endorse some products, mainly footstuffs and the contracts always stipulate an unlimited supply of the product. For that reason I focus mainly on biscuits.
 After consuming enough of the product I have to take a short nap to digest my endorsements.
Most people think of a DIVA as a bad thing and we can only blame Martha Stewart on that. No, a DIVA is not a bad thing. We are just different. We are beautiful and that makes us special.

Well there is nothing like getting ready!
Sadly we think Dottie might be disqualified but then again you would need to check the rules!
We are not sure about Cooper being a Diva - should he not be a female or are we being sexist?
We think you might be OK with the Crackers entry!
Good luck

ps pity there isn't a hat competition for your mom!

I'm not sure about Dottie being disqualified... I mean, Mr. Bufus had crossed The Bridge before the Cat-Dog competition came along (admittedly, he was still with us when he entered...). Good luck! I think Abby is going to be a Bad Sport entry, but I'm considering her for both the Cracker and Shameless categories!

Good Luck, Dozer & Cooper! You look like excellent candidates for many categories. Sadly, Abby the Legal Beagle[mix] concurs that Angel Dottie is likely to be DQ'd because Mango was crafty and expressed all the rules in the present tense. So although we are sure Angel Dottie would have made an excellent candidate and we are most happy to see her cute picture, she is no longer in the present tense. Of course, Abby is not of counsel to Mango or Mango Minster, and Mango will be making the final determinations as to eligibility. Good Luck!

Wow, you are quick of the mark there. Best of luck with Mangominster. I am hoping to persuade Gail to enter me too!
Toodle pip!
PS Gail says that your Mom will get on very well in England since she clearly understands the importance of a nice cup of tea and a biscuit! We think that perhaps she could remind her boss at work that the graveyard is full of indispensable men (and women) and surely she could extend her trip and visit Scotland as well!

Good luck little dudes! I'll be seeing you again soon, Dozer, in the Cracker dog division!

Hey, I looked for your email address and couldn't find one.

Anyway I have seen you looking and commenting on my blog so I have been looking at yours too. I have lots of the same friends you do.

I'm a new follower of yours and hope you will follow mine.

Hope your dogs win at their pet shows.

Hmmmm!Mango is rather strict and final about the rules, sadly. But we think Angel Dottie can be given an honourary mention. That pic is just too cute :)
as for the Diva section, says DIVA right, not BRAT??!!
Don't know if Mango will agree to this entry.
But yes, the cracker contender is a very very good bet!1
Guess what? daddy is coming back tomorrow morning. Guess he ran out of under wear after all!!!
as for Mummy, we think she was just too glad for a little extra leg space at night! Don't tell her we said so!

wags, Ginger, Buddy n Shadow

Crackers, nuthin' -- is there a "Best Tongue" category?

Dottie is a beautiful girl, we don't think mentioning her is grounds for disqualification.

Cooper, Fenris wishes he got to sleep with the Mom & Dad but us cats have already claimed the bed. Besides he would squash Mommy.

Hey there Cooper!

Just visiting my co-competitors, a grat way to make new friends I think! And as you know, a Diva can never have too many adoring fans! I'm marveling at your luxurious our golden furs - no wardrobe needed to look glorious for you! Best of luck at MM!
