Mango Minster Entry

I'm SO bummed. The new photos I was hoping to use for Brutus' Mango Minster entry never came (despite being promised by the professional photographer). Drat.

Thankfully I had a plan B. No one will be surprised by my entry, since we talk about agility so often. Without further ado, here is Brutus' entry for the "Sporty Dog" category:

What a good sport! Bulldogs certainly weren't built for jumping/climbing, but Brutus doesn't let that slow him down! I picked this photo not just because it caught him floating mid-jump - I chose this shot for the look on Brutus' face. We'll never beat the Border Collies and Jack Russells, but we have fun every time we go out on course. Brutus is just happy to be flying around, making people smile. He might not be "good" at the sport in the big scheme of things, but he certainly is a good sport about giving it his best!

There you have it, Mr. Mango! Can't wait to see how Brutus fares - you never know where one might end up once in yours & Moose's hands (paws)...

I'm with you on the last statement, ya never know with the crazy Mango Minster! I'm not with you on the fact that Brutus is in my category. I mean, come on! You're far cuter in the Vday photo, now you have to beat me in this category too? The race is on. I'm still rooting for you, Brutus.
