Drum Roll Please…

January 2011 016Our lives will never be the same now that Mango Minster 2011 has come to an end.  For the three of you who didn’t hear Mama whoop and shout, allow me – Lady Gretchen Greer the Crup, Readers Choice Mango Minster 2011 Insane Cracker Dog – to present my sister…

Wait.  Somebody get the orchestra playing, “There she is, Miss America…” 

It is my honor to present the DIVA formerly called Sissy, Haddon Wood’s Princess of Joy, the newly crowned Best In Show, Shameless Doggie DIVA, who now will only answer to Queen DIVA Sissy, Best in Show

Mama borrowed the coronation photo from Mango Minster’s post.  Yeah Sis, I see the tiara.  Just remember, I don’t care for anything on MY wee noggin, so I’m not THAT jealous. 

Oh – and of course, Sissy wants to know if Mango’s mama has any fabric left over from the snazzy purple suit.  Hem.  Sis?  Mama can’t sew, and I don’t think you get a tailoring allowance as part of your award package.  

I do have to urge you to go read Judge Frankie’s whole presentation.   At least I know what I’ll be doing tomorrow; I’ll be trying to help Sissy understand what a great responsibility rests on her bony shoulders.   Maybe it won’t be as hard as I’m fearing… she’s been focused on her platform – canine glaucoma awareness and education – since Mango Minster was first announced, so with a little luck, she’ll take off her tiara and open her ears…


The Queen Diva on ONE of her thrones

Sissy here – I do want to thank everyone again and again for voting for me, visiting our blog, and I especially want to thank the judges, sponsors and hosts of Mango Minster.  I was a little worried this morning when I was visiting the other Best of Show dogs’ blogs that Mama hadn’t made it clear that I fully intend to use my new TITLES!!  (two!  I’m so excited!)  to help promote my cause.  Gg needn’t worry either; I’m aware of my duties as the most visible DIVA in the doggy bloggy universe, and I will uphold them with pomp and pride.

Now…  I’ve heard that Mama has extra funds in her party dress budget…  Gg?  Let’s go shopping!

Gretchen once more – we do want to wish everyone a happy Valentine’s Day!  Licks and love to one and all!

    Miss Sissy certainly is deserving of the title and I was happy when Judge Frankie chose her. Of course there will be no living with her now what with her swelled head and all. No worries. It’s only right. She is a beautiful princess. Oh, and Gretchen, most cracker. Hehehe.
