Our entry for Mango Minster 2011 Shameless Diva category

When we saw the categories for this year's competition, 
we just couldn't believe our luck. 
A Shameless Diva competition. 
Just our style. 

And the timing could not be more perfect. 
January 14 is Dress Up Your Pug (pet whatever) Day. 

For your viewing pleasure, most of our wardrobe. In order to not crash your interwebs, we tried to consolidate our wardrobe into fewer pictures rather than modeling each outfit. 
And some of our stuff is in the laundry.

First up is our holiday dress collection. Halloween, Easter and Valentine's Day. Mom hasn't finished our Christmas dresses, so we didn't count those. 

 Next is our summer dresses. 

Then there's our casual dresses, plus our pugkinis.  

You may recall that we won
in the swimsuit competition.

Then we have our dressier dresses. 

Next up would be our t-shirts and sweatshirts. 
These are our Christmas shirts.

Then there's the pink collection. Notice the multiple Princess shirts and the ones that say High Maintenance, Spoiled and Lovin' It, and Good Things Come in Small Packages. Notice a theme here?

Lastly, in this category, we have our terry bathrobes and more cute shirts. 

Our bedtime wear. 

Jogging suits. Got to stay in shape to fit into our pugkinis. 



Pink sweaters. 

Christmas sweaters. 

Outerwear. Note the coats of different weights for cold and 
Plus raincoats.

That's not all. There's our Halloween costumes, too. 
Bacon and Eggs

Lightning Pugs

We also have Hershey's Kisses and ram costumes. Unfortunately, we destroyed the Kisses costumes before Mom even got a picture of us in them. 
They made us look fat.

Finally, our embroidered blankets and stockings. We also have pink satin stockings shaped like bones with our names on them. 
They have already been packed up though. 

We are also philanthropugs. 
Instead of adding to our enormous wardrobes or overflowing toy boxes, we asked the guests at our birthday party to make a donation to the charity of their choice or to ours Mid-Atlantic Pug Rescue. Our party this year raised $100 for MAPR and $50 for the Norfolk SPCA. But then we also scarfed down some of our guests' pupcakes. It was our birthday. 

There's more stuff, but a girl can't share all her secrets. 

On to Mango's criteria

1. Are there pictures of us on the internet? 
Of course! We've got our own blog! And we're on DoggySpace. And probably on other people's Facebook pages. And Twitter.

2. Is your wardrobe bigger than your humans? 
Not yet. 
But, our mom has an entire room that she's turned into a closet. 
Plus another closet. 
The woman has more than 125 pairs of shoes. 

BUT, we do have 131 outfits, plus 8 Halloween costumes. And we're only 3. Mom's been working on her wardrobe for a lot longer.

3. Do you allow yourself to be posed in shockingly embarrassing outfits? 
See above pictures. And other blog posts. And Twitter.

4. Will you work for (gasp) praise? 
Sure, as long as it comes with a side of treats.

5. Do you howl and moan or head butt when some other fur kid is getting attentions? 
Yes. The less said, the better.

6. Do you possess a crown and/or a tiara? 
We have issues with stuff on our heads, so no tiaras. Trust us, we would have them if we would wear them and not eat them.

7. At the end of the day, is it all about YOU? 

Of course it is. Was there ever a question? 
We are pugs. 
Girl pugs. 
Diva pugs.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we give you the Mango Minster 2011 Shameless Divas.

  10. Holy pug, ladies! I'm so glad my Mom doesn't have that many clothes for me. My sweater vest and my alien hat is torture enough. I hope you don't mind being dressed up as much as I do! (But gosh darn it, you look pretty adorable dressed up...)


  11. WOW! That's A LOT of clothes!!! We've got, uh, coats. Of course, neither of us actually LIKES wearing clothes, so that may have something to do with it. We are Most Impressed with your success in the Swimsuit Competition! (Oh, yeah, we came here via MangoMinster - we love meeting new doggies!) Good luck!
