Mango Minster - 2012 - Official Entry

Last year we entered Cleo, Winston and Amiee in the Cracker Critter category which we felt they fit right into this category for a basset hound any way.  It was so much fun, even though we didn't win because we found their are some pretty darn good Cracker Critters out their in blogville.

Will this year, we have had a hard time deciding if we wanted to do individual entries, because Amiee says she is just too Darn Cute, Winston says he is quite Adventures and our newest addition Bella, seems to fit the too Darn Cute category as well.  But of course our human has the deciding factor on which category she wants to place us in, no matter how much we voice our opinions.  So this year, she did it again.......

Our Mango Minister

Official Entry Post


Cracker Critters
You know who you are...
But just in case. If you tend to run mental fits around even after a brisk walk of 87 miles, if you rip into stuffies like nobody's business, if you go all animal predator if there is even a suggestion of a rodent on the property, or exhibit any other generally nutty behavior, well, then, you ARE a cracker critter.

This is an action shot which we thought was Bella, but we had a few people comment on this picture when we posted it and they believe it is the "Spirit of Cleo" joining in on the fun.  We just knew she wanted to pawticipate again this year in the Mango Minster as a Cracker Critter.

Okay, I can play this game too

I said, take that........ 

Seriously, you did not just say that?

Flying Bassets 

Ring around the Rosie

I have had enough of this

Oh, come on Sis a little more fun 

See I can play nice

Or maybe not! 

We spaz out for Snow

  7. Ha!Ha!Ha! What fantastic pictures! Thanks for the giggle fit and good luck!!

  8. Flying bassets!!! OMD!!! I am going to be giggling about that picture all day!

    Your pal, Pip

  9. YOU HAVE YOUR VERY OWN FIRE HYDRANT IN YOUR PERSONAL YARD!!! We are just beyond impressed and think you deserve 50 extra points just for managing that. We've always thought bassets had a breed advantage in the Cracker Dog category, tied closely to that incredible stubborn streak inherent in the breed. You seem to be excellent examples of your breed and good contestants for this category. Best of luck in the competition.

  14. Nothing says "cracker" like leaving half your face behind when you run! I love the pictures!

  15. Hi all Just checking on the crackers here. I'd say your crackers, flying bassets, hilarious. Your very own fire hydrant is awesome. Good luck.

    The silvers and more

  16. Come run with us. Why yes, Mama *IS* restricted from *EVER* running again, after requiring back surgery many years ago because her poster-child cracker JRT needed to RUN MANY MILES every flippin' day...

    Sissy needs to run too. And leap. And twirl. And try to climb trees...

    You can find Sis - and wee Gretchen Greer - at

    Good luck!! You have our vote.

  17. That is certainly terrific Cracker Critter behavior! There's alot of cracker in you. We really like the script and size of your type in your blog,btw. What is it? It is much easier for our mommy to read than most.
