Look At The Sweet Stuff I Got In The Mail!!

This is Flat Sally Ann and me. You know she's my #1 sweetie, right?

She got me the upsome most cool card for V-Day. See all the kisses on it??

And here I am with Sally Ann's picture, enjoying one of the chewy treats she sent me.
She also got me this awesome lobster, which immediately had a squeekerectomy
performed by an Airedale who shall remain nameless.

Since Sally Ann sent 2 doggy treats I thought I had better give
the Airedale (who shall remain nameless) one.
She would have stolen it anyway, so it was better to appear magnanimous!

Here I am choosing my new lobster over the old one. The old one is missing all of it's stuffing and was in really bad shape. He was my favorite toy for quite some time, before BabyRD killed him. Mommy threw him away after I chose my new S.A.Lobster as my new favorite. RIP old friend.

All of this cool stuff pictured above was sent to me by Sally Ann from Atlanta, Welshie/Georgia Peach!! Sally's dear mama, Lisa, even sent my folks a little Valentine heart with hooman chocolates in it. Daddy ate most of them since he's the chocolate bear in our house. lol. The very best pressie of all that was in the package from Sally Ann was a headshot of my sweetie AND Flat Sally Ann herself. Awesomeness!! I held off on posting this until our MM2011 Costume Contest was all wrapped up. Just want to say to sweet Sally Ann: Thank you so much for all the great pressies and Thank you for being my Valentine!! You're the bestest WelshieGal a Welshie chap like I could ever wish for!!!

Lots of WelshieHug & Smooches to all my friends,
Hootie the Wonder Dog

Good News ~ Bad News ~ Good News & This is Post 200 For us!!!

Here we are on Mommy's & Daddy's bed enjoying a snooze.
Note Baby Rocket Dog's ball. Bad hiding place!!

Oooo this is scary. Look how Baby's eye is partially opened. Creepy!!
Okay, the good news is we got 16 of the prize packages sent out finally!! The bad news is we still need 1 address. Mommy's gonna email her to get it.

Now for more bad news. Mommy's camera took a hit on Sunday and it looks like it's gone to camera heaven. Must have been the soaking rain that finished it off. Luckily with these new cameras the memory disk can be removed so we still have our photos from the PetSmart Petwalk. We'll regale you with those at a later date, since we'll need to use our archive photos until the folks scrape up enough green stuff to buy another camera. (Daddy's Nikon isn't our mommy's cup of tea.)

And finally for the last good news. Since all the excitement of MangoMinster 2011 and our Costume Contest is finally ebbing we can get a little rest around here!!

Ciao buddies. Sleepy time for pooped pooches!! Oh and go on over to Reilly's blog to enter the sleeping contest!!

Smooches and yawns,
Hootie and Baby Rocket Dog

In our last post the Pooches Choice Winners were announced.
Once again, congratulations to Jake & Fergie and Jazzi for their victories.
They were chosen by a popular vote of fellow bloggers.

The following winners were chosen in different ways.

Mommy and Hootie and I wanted to pay tribute to our dear little friend, Dr. Dre, whom we lost so tragically last August. Dre loved to dress up and even was a winner, along with Hootie, in a local costume contest benefiting the Panhandle Animal Shelter in October 2009.
We felt it fitting to dedicate a category to him.

So, we have chosen PEDRO as our winner of the DR. DRE MEMORIAL TINY DOG PRIZE.

Hootie and I, Baby Rocket Dog, got to choose our own special winners, 'cuz it's our contest and we wanted to have our own pick! So, the following 2 special categories were created:

Baby's AireChoice for MOST CHARMING FASHION SENSE ~ MISS MOLLY of Inky and Molly. I feel Molly is right up there with Asta, Lacie and of course, me, with her fashion sense. I mean come on folks. How many of you have lent your clothes to your mommy?!

Hootie's Choice for DOG MOST LIKELY TO TURN ON HIS HOOMAN FOR DRESSING HIM IN THIS SILLY COSTUME ~ Frankie Furter. Look at the picture. 'Nuff said!

The following winners were chosen by a panel of these 7 unbiased judges: Cathi, Jeanne, Liz, Mandy, Maria, Patrick and Ramona. We want to send our thanks to all of these esteemed judges...We know there were some hard decisions that had to be made and we appreciate you making them. We think you did a fine job. Muchas gracias!!

NOW, for the winners in each category.
Drum roll please...pita-pita-pita-pita=pita-pita....

(like a celebrity, singer, storybook character, etc.):

2nd PLACE:


(One or two simple accessories):
2nd PLACE:
(Showy, shiny or outrageous):
(How did they get the pooch(es) to do that???):
Winners for CUTEST (Tie):

And last, but not least. Winner for BEST CAT COSTUME:

All of our contestants are fabulous, in and out of costume. We hope you all enjoyed this as much as we did. Now, we would like all of our winners to send us their mailing address so we can get their prizes out to them within the next week. Our email is: cassiejo(AT)juno(DOT)com. Once again, thank you to Mango and MangoMama for putting on MangoMinster 2011. And thank you to Oskar & also Mikkel Becker for each donating a prize.
Congratulations again AND Happy Valentine's Day!!
Smooches from pooches,
Baby Rocket Dog & Hootie

We want to give our congratulations to our MM2011 side event Costume Contest Pooches Choice Group Winners, Jake and Fergie and the Overall Pooches Choice, Jazzi. Well done amigos!!

Daddy and Mommy are taking us up to Prescott, Arizona now to enjoy some cool weather and celebrate Valentine's Day. BUT, mommy brought her computer, so tonight after some revelry, we'll try to get all the winners posted. Please stay tuned!

Saturday, Feb.12th, Last Day For Pooches Choice Vote On Costume Contest

#1 ~ Our apologies to #34 ~ Noodles, for referring to HerSweetness as a "fellow"and "he"!! Hootie is trying to say he was using "the royal he" but I don't think there is such a thing. ANywhoooo, corrections have been made and mea culpa Miss Noodles!!

#2 ~ Isn't MangoMinster2011 getting exciting?? BowWowZer, we can hardly contain how wired we are. I had to hold Hootie back when dear little Carmen won the Diva division...He almost went all Kanye on us when his Beyoncé (Sally Ann) didn't win. Boy that was a close call!! Make sure and visit MM2011 each day to get your votes in.

#3 ~ As in MM2011, ALL WINNERS! We will coordinate prizes after the show, OK?

Okay, I think that's all for now. Make sure to tell your friends to come on over and place their votes.

Big, wet AireSmooches,
Baby Rocket Dog
