Hi everybuddy! Gosh, I’m super excited today cuz I’ve got a Most Special postie for you. As you prolly know, the Relentlessly Huge is hosting a “Win a Date with the Mango” contest. Well, my furends Jed and Abby from Merryland thought that their cuzin Pretty Girl would be the pawfect date for Mango. BUT they don’t have a bloggie of their own. So I decided since I already have a Most Darling and Precious boyfurend and can’t enter the contest myself – I would offer to let Pretty Girl enter the contest on MY bloggie!
So without further ah-dew, heeeere’s Pretty Girl!
Thanks to the most gracious loan of Mayzie’s blog, we [Jed & Abby] are submitting an application for our Cousin Pretty Girl to win a virtual date with the Mango. Should she be lucky enough to be selected, Pretty Girl has indicated she would like to have a memento of the virtual date that actually smells like Mango. We will be happy to supply a bandanna or small scrap of cloth to be imbued with Eau de Mango. We will, of course, pay postage in both directions. Unusual, perhaps, but Cousin Pretty Girl is very scent-oriented; perhaps it’s the St. Bernard in her.
Cousin Pretty Girl is a St. Bernard-Akita mix. She is a rescue doggie, like us, so we don’t know her exact age but she’s around 4 years old. We think Mango and Pretty Girl would make a compatible couple because of both their similarities and their differences. Both Mango and Pretty Girl are respect-inspiring, don’t mess with me, large sized doggies of imposing gravitas. They would interact as equals, which is the only basis for a successful relationship. Pretty Girl is more adventurous than the Mango, which would allow the Mango to stretch his mentals with novel experiences in new places.
Both the Mango and Pretty Girl dislike rude doggies who fail to accord them the respect due their dominant sizes and personalities. Mango has gone to School and Pretty Girl has not, so she has a bit more of a free spirit attitude towards obedience; they can compare and contrast the advantages. Both, by their very presence and their deep voices, are excellent guard dogs. Just as the Mango does his fraternal duty of keeping the Pea in line, Pretty Girl has on more than one occasion actually herded cats. One of her kitty brothers succeeds in escaping from the house from time to time and Pretty Girl chases him down and herds him back inside.
Just as the Mango enjoys his human brother and interacts with the workers who come to the Mango Estate, Pretty Girl enjoys her human grand-pups and has trained all the regular workers at her estate [cleaning lady, yard guy, pest control guy] to play ‘bear’ with her by meeting them at the door with her stuffed bear in her mouth so they can play tug-the-bear and throw-the-bear. Finally, both the Mango and Pretty Girl share another important family value: they love their mamas SO MUCH. Just as the Mango knows when to expect the Mango Momma and tries to greet her on the observation deck, Pretty Girl will lie next to the front door when her mama goes away and always greets her mama upon her return, bear in mouth.
How about it, Relentlessly Huge? Wanna play some bear?
