Mango Minister Edition

So, does this belong on Sissy’s blog or mine?  Well, since Sissy’s blog is primarily about her journey to health – for now- it goes here.  Plus, if I put it on Sis’s blog, then I’d have to decide where to post Gretchie’s entry…  See?!  Much easier to put them both here and move on.

My name is Haddon Wood’s Princess of Joy, but folks just call my Sissy.  Clearly, I am a DIVA, which is to say I’m a female.  Obviously, I am all Hound Dog.  I am standing on my throne, watching the critters play in my kingdom.  I used to give chase, but since I lose my hearing – and my little sister – when I put my nose to the ground, I am restricted to the pen or a leash.  (That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.)  Mom will email with her email addy and concise version of the entry, because I can’t be bothered with details.  (Surely I’ll be the only hound entry sporting a wimple?)

OBX February 2009

Haddon Wood’s Gretchen the Crup here, or as I’m more fittingly called these days, Lady Gretchen Greer.   But don’t let the pretty face and fancy frocks fool you; I’m a rough and tumble, play hard and play harder girl terrier terror.   Sissy’s only in charge because she gets in more trouble that way  I allow her to be.   It might shock my fans to know that I am more than qualified to be a CDIT – Cracker Dog Insane Terrier – or more fittingly, Crup Dog of Intelligence and Trickery.  Cute, little, and a few perfectly timed licks and prances keeps me in everyone’s good graces.

Boy it was hard to choose just one photo each!!   I’m sure some of you have other faves… what did I forget?

    A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! Both of them. I don’t know that I’d be able to pick just one favorite photo… unless it’s the one of me & the girls in their tutus. 🙂

    And I think you both described yourselves very well girls. 😛

  3. Yeah for some of our favorite friends coming to MangoMinster with us! Misty and Sasha Woofs!

    I love both of those photos. And great stories to boot! Adorable girls and these entries belong here. Sissy’s blog is about her journey to health.

    (so much for being on the ‘puter tonight, huh?) g

    What great looking photos!

  6. Mary says:

    Sissy is so majestic…just no other word for it. She could give deportment lessons.

    And Gretchen’s look totally says, “I’m cool, I’m calm. (Sub-text – Leave my bone alone.)” Great shots.

    Absolutely Adorable!

    All time favorite picture of Gretchen. Sissy looks very lady-like and composed in her shot. 🙂 The cats have offered to cheer them on in the competition. Hrm….wonder if I can find some kitty cheerleader costumes somewhere. ::insert evil laugh::

    That picture of Gretchen is adorable! She knows who’s boss, right? Just don’t tell Sissy.

    Thor’s in the Working Dog group at Mango Minster. Wearing his tool belt, of course.

  10. Sandy says:

    Those are both wonderful photos, capturing so much of each dog’s personality.

  11. Sue says:

    Both great shots. Sissy sure looks the diva in that pose. Fudge is entered in the bad boy group and Tsar in the cat group.

    I am happy to say that having reviewed your blog that even though there are not doggie photos in every post, the ones you do have are brilliant. SOmebody is a most gifted photographer for sure (or is it just having good subjects).

    Of course momma is a sucker for the photos of yarn which I think is an odd thing for somebody that doesn’t even knit. Go figure.

    I see you know Thor who is an actual full sized doggie such as myself.


    P.S. I also see you know Fudge. Very bad sport indeed. Better watch out for that one.

  13. Robin says:

    Such cute photos!!!!

  16. FANTASTIC photo choices!!!
