Time to Vote for My Date!

Yay! The day is here to decide who’s gonna take me to the Valentine’s Dance and I’m SO super excited!

There are 17 super wonderful and handsome candidates to choose from (which means 17 green papers for Dog Fostermom’s fence!) and I would be just tickled pink to go with any one of them!

Now, it’s awfully impawtant to me that this doesn’t turn into a pawpularity contest. So pretty please take a few minutes to read all their entries and be sure to vote on the one that you think would really and truly be My Most Pawfect Valentine’s Date. Okay? Voting will be open until 5:00 p.m. my time tomorrow.

The poll is at the bottom of this postie.

So are you ready? Set? VOTE!

1. Casey

Roses are pink (well, this one is, at least)
My heart is blue (okay, I think it’s actually red, but metaphorically speaking)
I would sure like to go
To a Valentine’s party with you!

Like you, I’m dateless on Valentine’s Day, and I would be truly honored to go with a brindle beauty like you.  I’m a really good date because I’m a snazzy dresser, a good dancer, and a really good listener. Will you please be my Valentine?


2. Casper

Hello, Mayzie.  Would you go to the dance with me?
My name is Casper, and I am a good boy.  I am handsome and have a brindle eye patch, so we would look good together…coordinated like.  I know how to treat the MOST beautiful brindle-furred ladies nice, because my sister, Freedom, has the brindle furs.  I have two sisters, so I am a gentleman.  I think you are the MOST sweetest girl, and it would be a honor to escort you to the party.

Your friend (and hopefully, escort), Casper


3. Corbin

I think I am the most qualified to be your date for the Valentine’s Day Pawty.  I haven’t asked any one else on the chance I’ll get to go with you.  Just think how beautiful your sweet brindle furs would look next to my dark and handsome chocolatey furs.  As you know, I’m a Canine Good Citizen, so you know you’ll be treated like a lady and your drink will never (ever) be empty. I’ve also dabbled in agility training, so I’m quick on my feet and would love to parade you gracefully around the dance floor.

I could go on and on, but you said 3-5 sentences, so I will obey your rules.  I have my paws crossed that I’m the one picked to be your date!


4. Dillon (Little Miss Jackie’s brudder)

Hello, luvly Miss Mayzie!  I want to tell you that I would sure enjoy being your date for the Valentine’s Pawty.  While I am a senior, I am a gentledog and feel that it is impawtant that a lady should be treated like the very beautiful princess that she is.  You are such a wonderful, pretty, and fun lady and it would be a great honor to escort you to the Pawty!

Luvs and high hopes, Dillon


5. Garth Riley

I would very much like to take you to the Valentine’s Pawty.  Brindle is my favorite color, and you’re obviously partial to yellow labs.

I’m often described as a perfect gentleman, and I would make an excellent date.  Not only am I extremely handsome, I’m also talented, intelligent, sensitive, very sweet, and LOTS of fun. (Plus I have a girlfriend so Booker doesn’t have to be worried that I will steal you away from him!)


6. Jed (No bloggie yet but nominated by his sister and Mango Minster Ethics Chairdog, Abby)

I nominate my brother, Jed, as your date for the Valentine’s Day party.  As you can see from his picture, you have a major interest in common.  Jed is a friendly but reserved Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever [mix?] who was also a rescue doggie – from a death camp in N.C. – at the age of 8 months.  He is courteous, dependable, very intelligent, and a lot of fun once you start playing.  He will be recovering from his third leg surgery at the time of the party, so he could enjoy your brindle sympathies and kind heart but you could still dance with some of the other doggies if you wanted.
Sincerely,  Abby the Legal Beagle[mix] Extraordinaire

7. Jimmy

It’s me, Jimmy! I was wondering if I could ask for your paw on Feb 14th to accompany me to the Valentines Day Dance?? I am sorry it took me so long to as, I had to work up the courage to ask such a pretty brindle girlie. Being such a young pup, I didn’t think I had a shot at impressing you, but Kylie says I am a good catch and you won’t be disappointed and Kylie would never lie… Right???

Looking forward to hearing your response!

Puppy kisses, Jimmy


8. Joe (nominated by Marg’s Pets)

We would like to enter our donkey Joe in the contest. We know Mayzie, you probably would rather go with a handsome dog but we just thought it would be fun to give Joe a chance. He certainly will take very good care of you and he is some kind of a dancer. He knows all the new dances and would even let you ride around on top of him. He also thinks that your Brindle furs are so very pretty. We think you would have a great time with him. The two of you could dance the night away.Even if we don’t get picked, we sure hope you have a good time at the dance.

Marg and all the critters here. We all voted on this assignment.


9. Kuster (as dictated to Bunny)

I think I’d be a good date for you at the Valentine’s Day Dance.  I’ve never been to a dance before, but I’ve got moves and I can keep going all night.  I’m a smart guy and I’m working my way through school right now and plan to have a good job one day.  So, I’m responsible date material, which I heard from Bunny that parents love. I’m not as tall as you yet, but I’m still growing really fast, so I think I’ll be tall enough to dance with you by the night of the big dance.
Yours Truly,
Kuster vom Gildaf


10. Lewi (no bloggie…yet!)

My mom, Gail, told me about your pawty and I would love to be your date! I have been told that I am a very handsome fellow with a (Ta Dahhhhh!) brindle coat! Mine is called a black brindle, because it’s so dark. I am mostly black with lighter stripes down my sides and legs and a broad, black very shiny stripe down the middle of my back with no light color at all. I pawsonally think we would make a striking couple since we would both be brindle! I am a very growlly guy and would pawtect you from all dangers while we were on our date. I am enclosing a couple of pictures (and Mom put a couple more!) of myself, but my real strength is in my pawsinality. Hoping to hear from you soon!

Lewis (my furrends call my Lewi)


11. Monty (nominated by his brudder Sam)

Sam here.  Sam thought he ought to write and tell you about his little brother Monty.  Monty would like to be your date for the Valentine Dance but Monty kind of shy around girls.  Monty thinks you would be an awesome girl to take to the dance – you being both rescues and both very much loved by your peoples.  Well, Monty loved by my peoples, but you know what I mean.  Anyways, Monty hopes you will consider him.  He is good boy, kind of silly at times, but still okay.
Picture of him attached.  Mom says he adorable.  I just think he red and fuzzy.


12. Pepsi

Mayzie! You’re one of the prettiest girl around Blogville, and I figured that given your status (popularity), it’d be good for you to go on a date with one of the biggest rockstars in Blogville! How’s that? As you know, I can play the guitar, I can be a deejay, I’m the lead guitarist of the GREAT PawsBang!! You can choose ride in our PawsBang tour bus to the pawty, and make the other girls jealous, HEHEHE.

Rocking on,


13. Pippa

I would like to take to the party because I am always happy to find new girlfriends. Once I had lots of girlfriends (20 or 30 I think) so you can see I am an open-minded sort of dog and don’t mind at all that you have another boyfriend. Important to respect a girl’s opionions and freedom.

What else? Well, I don’t really do much except I promise to gaze at you soulfully and you will be free to dance with whoever you want while I snooze away in the corner (unless there are CATS to chase of course).

And – here – is my original Pippa Valentino post where I aspired to be a star of the silent screen. Please let me be your Valentino this year.


14. Sam (nominated by Tank)

So here’s what he’s going for himself (sorry, it’s not much)—–
He’s Canadian. I hope that’s okay. Oh, and he’s a bad sport. Do you mind that? He barks “eh?” a lot for some reason… you’ll get used to it. I think he eats goose poo too, but hopefully not on first dates. He also seems to have super strong pee that can melt an entire yard full of snow in a very short time (if you’re into that sort of thing.) I’m sure you would have a delightful time with him at the Valentine’s Day dance.
The baddest sport


15. Tank (nominated by Sam and Pippen)

We thought of entering ourselves to win a date with you but then thought, “Mayzie wouldn’t be able to handle TWO studs of our calibre!”

So we would like to nominate TANK!

We think the two of you would look HAWT! but more importantly we think you would be a positive influence on Tank and maybe be able to teach him some manners and etiquette… not to mention his cranky moodiness, with your sunny disposition, we think you could make Tank less of a curmudgeon!


16. Turk

I would love so very much to be your “Val-un-times” date this year. Some people call me a dreamer, but it’s only because I like to nap a lot and dream of you! I am also very adventurous and go exploring with my Ruffwear Backpack, and I always help my mama with cleaning the dishes. Oh, and that’s another thing, I still live with my mama, but only because she needs to be cared for – who else is going to protect her from squirrels or alert her when the mailman comes?! See? I’m sensitive, protective, and a manly man…won’t you be by Valuntime?



17. Winston

My name is Winston and, iffin I get da date or NOT, just wanted you to nose how BeaYouTeaFul you are, ‘speshullally ju Bwindle Furrrrrrrs!

Di ya hear how brave I am?  I am a warrior, a mighty hunter..’speshually of squirrels! I nailed one dis wintew..Mommy wasn’t happy butt Daddy was so pwoud, he eben got out da flashy box to have a wecowd of da ebent! I lub to dance, my Daddy teached me how to do da  Cha Cha Cha!!

You admiewew, Sir Winston Churchill Becker

    Wyatt and Stanzie

  21. Sarge

    Benny & Lily

  26. Jen

    No Doberman gents? Wow.

    I chose Kuster, because he’s a rising star. I’ve been following his progress (though now I have a lot of other blogs to check out too)!

  27. So…I’ve missed my opportunity. Rats.

    Arooo, Stuart

  28. That was a really tough decision. We think any of these fine fellows would make an excellent date for the dance.

  29. That’s a lot of handsome paws and hooves to choose from. Why choose just one–or four?

  30. Dang girl…you gots ’em all lined out to takes your brindle self out. You go girl! Nows, I has checked all their backgrounds and all is good. No needs to worry theres, I gots your back.
    Dis is gonna be a tuffy…who to chose, who to chose?????????

    Tank and Sam crack me up…and skeeres me at da same time.


  31. Pip

    Can I pick more than one? Just kidding! This is SO HARD!!! What a great bunch of fellas!

    Your pal, Pip

  32. Jed & Abby in MerryLand, USA

    Well, we’re thinking Entourage may be the way to go. What other lady is likely to show up with 17 handsome escorts? We promised to vote for Corbin to spur him to get well sooner, but we have to say any of these gentlemen would be an excellent choice, except we agree Kuster is just too young this year. And charming as you are, dear Mayzie, Joe the donkey would be happier with a lady donkey for sure.

    Jed & Abby

  33. Mayzie,

    Da winner will be so very lucky to have you as his date. 🙂

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

    PeeS Thanks fur comin’ to my pawty today. LUVS you BFF!

  34. I voted for Jimmy! Come on, a guy right from Master Chew Sits, how could I not?


  35. Tucker

    BOL Sam Pippen and Tank are too funny.

    woof – Tucker

  36. Mayzie, you have a very tough decision ahead of you! I’m giggling like mad over Tank and Sam and Pippin’s entries! I think that no matter who you pick, you’ll have a great time at the dance.


  37. Mayzie…You’re gonna win no matter what.

  38. We voted…that was hard! So you know how mom is about making sure fences are safe, right? She’ll be happy to provide you the regulations in town. 😀 So she said that we want to make sure Dog Foster Mom gets her fence. That means she will pony up some green papers. Seeing how she slacked off getting a nomination in.


    Mr. Nubbin’

  39. Wow, I had to thinks and thinks and thinks long and hard before making that more important decision! I thinks I need a nap or one of Puddles beers now. I’m exhausted!!

  40. I came over from Frankie, and I vote for Jed ‘cos I want to see more of him in Blogville!
    Toodle pip!

  41. KB

    I wanted to vote for Kuster but then I thought that would be like “cradle-robbing”…. So, I went for one of the more mature dudes, who is sick right now and would be so happy to be your date!

  42. Oh my Dogs Mayzie I’m torn between the handsome woofie who will never let your glass be empty (it is important to stay hydrated while doing the boot scoot boogie) and the dashing Dancing Donkey. I expect he could teach you to do a dance called the Pony AND should your paws become weary from dancing he could easily give you a lift. Decisions decisions. However, I think you would have a fine time with any of the 17 fine, respectable, good citizen, agile, fun loving, brindle loving, gentlewoofies. I say get a very long dance card, rent a stretch limo and go with all of them!!
    Hugs from your BFFF,

  43. PS I agree with Ruby..I’ll take any leftovers too.
    Ruby you are too funny!
    Hugs Madi

  44. littlemissjackie

    BARKBARK! Mom wasn’t feeling well the last couple of days so we completely forgot to come vote for my brudder Dillon! But we see that Mr. Casey is quite pawlified to escort you, and we know you will both have a super time at the Pawty!

  45. Constance Kirwin


  46. Madalynne Wadlington

    Lewi is my vote He would be a handsome suitor for Mayzie…

  47. Susan Slaght

    Lewi, You Da Dawg, You Handsome Dog!
