Mango Minster – Adventure Animals Entry

Guess what? For the first time EVER, I’m entering myself in Mango Minster! I’m so excited!

I thought long and hard which category I should enter. It was a very much tough decision cuz, well, I AM super cute and I do a LOT of work around the house for my mom and dad. Of course, Bad Sport was out for Most Obvious reasons. But in the end, I decided to enter the Adventure Animals category.

Now, for the first coupla years of my life, I never thought much abouts having adventures. That’s cuz I spent all my time living outside in somebody’s backyard. I didn’t even IMAGINE that there might be a world outside of that yard. 

But all that changed when I got rescued and then my mom and dad adopted me. That’s when I found out just how adventurous I really am.

When I first got adopted, just living inside a house was an adventure. There were all sorts of strange and skeery things that I didn’t understand. I couldn’t walk on the slippery wooden floors or go up and down stairs, and the first time I saw the Sea Link Fahn bird, I fell to my tummy and my teethies starting chattering cuz I thought it was gonna swoop down and carry me off!

But little by little, I got more brave and adventuresome and now…

When I first got adopted, I had never been to school and didn’t know cool stuff like “sit” or “down” or “stay” or “high five.” So when mom said she was enrolling us in our first class, I was pretty nervous. She said, “Oh, c’mon, Mayzie. It’ll be a fun adventure!” And you know what? She was right! And it made me lots more confident. I’ve finished up FIVE classes now and I can’t wait to do more!

When I first got adopted, I just wanted to hide away in the safety of my house. I didn’t like staying in strange places like hotels or going to other people’s houses but now, going to those places is a Most Exciting adventure!

And when I first got adopted, I didn’t even like to go for walkies on our street cuz the big wide world was so skeery and unpredictable-like. But now…

Oh, I know these things might not seem as exciting or adventuresome as bungee jumping or sky diving or drag racing. And there’s lots of things that I’m still afraid of. But when I was first adopted, if something skeery came along, I would just go to my condo and hide. Now when I’m skeered, I take a deep breath, gather up all my courage, walk over and bop it with my nose! And you know what? After I do that, I usually find out it’s not so skeery after all.

And I think that makes me
One Adventurous Animal!

  10. Mayzie,

    You sure are one very adventurous girl. My Nina would be afraid of that card with the weightlifting squirrel too. Good luck in MM 2012!


  11. Mayzie you are the bravest girl I know…OMC singing and talking squirrels would be enough to make me run for cover!!

  13. Mayzie-
    I think you are the bravest dog i know.
    I’m still afraid of our chandelier and I’ve been looking at it for 3 years!


  14. OMD Mayzie…you have the most pawesome adventures! I am so glad your Peeps adopted you from the scary home so you could have so much fun and lovins with them!


  15. Oh Mayzie, I know what you mean about that backyard! I wasn’t tied to a rope, but I was left out in a backyard all alone without even any shade, and no one took care of me when I was sick. My foster mom and dad helped me learn how to be adventurous. I’m so glad your mom and dad helped you. Isn’t a furever home the best adventure of all?!

  16. This might be my favorite Mayzie post EVER! Mayzie you are so smart and so brave. You are super adventurous. You are the perfect candidate, I think. You know what else I think…Brudder Ranger looks scary smart. Yikes! Now I know why he’s always in charge of the official rules of things.

  17. Dear Mayzie,
    As a fellow rescue dog, your story warms my heart. Your life was really rough at first, but then you ended up with a wonderful family who adores you.
    Good luck with Mango Minster!

  18. I am so proud of you, ya done good and will be purrfect in that catagory Mayzie!!!

  19. That was wonderful, Mayzie! You sure are an adventure girl and we just loved your movies!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  20. Oh Mayzie, we are so very glad you got away from that yard where you were kept on a rope and came to live with your Mom & Dad so you could have adventures. We thinks your adventure is a really good one cause you do stuffs even if you are scared at first and you has your Mom & Dad and your family to enjoy your adventures with you.

  21. Daisy

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & roxy

  22. It sure does make you advenshurus, Miss Mayzie! Gosh, you’ve conkered all sorts of fears and discomforts! I think that card is a little scary, though, with that buzzy skwirl and all. We’re rooting for you in the contest!



  23. You deserve it Mayzie! Look at you now

  24. Awesome entry, Mayzie! (And I’m not just saying that because I’m trying to curry favor with you because I want to take you to the Valentine’s Pawty.) You’re so brave! That birthday card would have really scared me.

  25. WEll of course, as a judge, I cannot have an opinion, but if I was allowed and opinion, it would be that you are an adventure dog for sure.

    Love ya Mayzie


  26. Jed & Abby in MerryLand, USA

    Amazing entry from an amazing lady, Miss Mayzie. You are most brave and adventurous. Abby is most empathetic, because she also had never even been inside a house when mama rescued her and everything scared or startled her: running water, the sound of the TV, ceiling fans for sure. Look how far we’ve come! We are very impressed at how you wait your turn when Brudder Ranger does his tricks and gets his reward, then he waits for you. Now that’s teamwork. Best of luck in the competition.

    Jed & Abby

    Oh Mayzie, we are so much alike – except for learning sit and stay. I didn’t realize commands were cool cause I never went to puppy school, sniff, sniff. But, I do understand about being scared of lots of things like walks! We have come along way baby! I am rooting for you, Mayzie!

    Your pal, Pip

  30. Wow Mayzie, what a brave and adventurous dog you are. And isn’t dog school the most fun!
    best of luck in the competition.

    I think you would win any category you entered! You’ve come a long way baby!

  35. You have come a long way. Great Job. After a life outside without any socialization I’m sure almost everything has been scary. You can do it. We are cheering for you.
