Bone Soup.... Friday 13th.....

Please think GOOOOOOOOD thoughts fur our bestest furend PIP.. he has his cardiologist appointment this morning at 11:45. We're with you buddy!!!!

So Last year I had the HONOR of being the Best In Show Judge for Mango Minster 2011. It was all pretty exciting fur a little (short legged) guy from the Hills of SouthEastern Ohio. I had to do a lot of THINKIN and PLANNIN and Clearing of the Mind stuffs... PLUS I had to be SEA QUEST HERD. I mean REALLY.. I had to go into Super Secret Hiding to keep away from those who might have liked to Offer Me a BRIBE or somethingy like that... SOOOOOOO being as how I like to do Wood Work and stuffs.. I got LUCKY and Mr. Master (Mango's Dad) kindly offered to Hide me Out in his wood workin shop. So I got to become his apprentice guy. We even had some grrrrrreat foods. I took the Basic fixin's fur BONE SOUP.
That would be 3 nice bones. Butt I told Mr. Master that the soup would be even better if it had a couple of other thingys in it.. SOOOOOOOOOOOOO he came out with this basket of SOUPER add ins...


Did I ever tell you that I actually won in MM 2010??? YEP I surely did do that. Here is all the super LOOT that I got.
Butt bein a JUDGE was not as easy as being a Good Sport as you can plainly see.
This is how I looked after a hard day of bein a Mr. Master Apprentice. All covered over with wood chips and stuffs... and STARVED...
So I took the bones I had brought and added in the Mr's stuffs and he and I had a Super Duper Souper Supper.
OH the Memories.

Hey Frankie, I have been really worried about the sequestered thing. But I was glad you got to be with a human and not all alone.

I'm still really nervous about deciding who should be Best In Show but I am gonna go back and read your posts from that time and maybe I'll get some advice.

Of course I can't ask your advice now cause your runnin.....

Love the Bone Soup

Happy Friday the 13th

Every time I see that picture of you in your judge wig I giggle. I love that pic. Didn't you send that judge wig to Fiona? I haven't seen any pictures of her in it, but I don't think anyone can be as cute as you.

Howdy Mr Frankie, we have paws crossed for Pip too. Mum remembers what a great job you did last year and how helpful you were to the Master. Bet he wishes you were still there to make him more soup. Have you shown Little Ernie how to make soup yet? No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
