Working As A Judge

Thank you all for telling Mommy what you thought the bump was. She is going to wait & see what happens with it & then take me to the vet. I haven't had it long as Mommy notices every change on me, she says I couldn't have it longer than a day or two. So I'm going to tell y'all how it feels to work as a judge!

Mainly you look over the contestants, & push aside the feelings for your friends(which is very hard). Then you pick & then you take back your decision & pick again. Picking & taking it back & picking again goes on for quite some time! Finally you make your final decision & send it to the Mango Man! Then you worry, did you make the right decision? The whole thing is quite stressful(& Fun!) & in the end you just need a nap!

It must be terribly hard to be a judge, Eduardo, especially with my in the competition. Not to worry, I wll still be yours even if I don't win. Just in case you were worried.



with love, Madison said...

Eduardo, you are make a wonderful judge, because you look so serious and contemplative and because you know how to really relax when it's all over!

Hi Boss - does it make judgin easier if we send you bribes, like toys and stuff rolled in a nice peanut butter dippy sauce?

It is good that you have managed to remain objective.

Gus said...

Eduardo...you did a fine job. We knew from those wrinkles that you would be careful and discriminating (in the good way) and pick the best representative in the class. And you didn't have any "conflict of interest" disqualifications like that terrier judge at Westminster!


Ruby said...

Hi Eduardo
What a hard job. You did a great job. Enjoy your nap.
Love Ruby

Foley always says that the mental work is so MUCH harder than the physical work. We are not sure if he knows what he is talking about as he thinks he can get TV reception through his cone.

Liza said...

Hi Eduardo! It's hard to be the judge especially if the competition is fierce but you did well. :D

Mango said...

Sleep well, little judge. The Mango knows how difficult it is to be objective and not choose your friends (hey, that's why I farmed out the judging).

You've been working hard, man! You deserve that power nap. Thanks for all you did for MangoMinster! We know it's tough being a judge, especially when you're a soft-hearted fella such as yourself!

Goober love,

Hi Eduardo and Eduardo's mommy!
I have a ton of wrinkles too and my Mommy and Daddy think they are adorable and hope they don't go away! My Mommy finally set up a blog for me and I wanted you to have the link so you can leave me snuggles!


Lots of snuggles!

Hi Eduardo,
It must've been hard to be a judge when you have so many friends participating in the contest! You deserve a yunmy bone for your hard work!

Karen Jo said...

I am sure that you did a great job as a judge, Eduardo. You deserve a nice long nap after all your hard work.

Hi Eduardo
My Mummy is a photographer and she used to be a judge for a swimsuit calendar that she used to shoot. I remember her always fighting with other judges and stressing out that she had picked the right hoomans. She wishes she could have takena nap and maybe she wouldn't have been so grumpy.
Big licks to you
