calling all cracker dog insane terriers!

hi every bloggie!
This week it was announced that I will serve as the honorable judge norwood for the Mango Minster 2010 Contest . Mango hand selected MOI to judge... uh oh.. ahem.. the Cracker Dog Insane Terrier Category.
I have no idea why? I am half terrier! Maybe ..... because
I think that meets the judge qualifications. Well good! I can't wait to review all the finest Terriers in Blogsville! In order to judge fairly, I have a scorecard to use. I think in order to get the best of the best fotos... I'll share my criteria!

The main categories for scoring:
Facial Expression- Are you obsessed and fixated like a terrier? Your face better show it!
Terrier-Like- Known for our tenacious, obsessed and get it at all cost attitude- show it in your photo!
Athletic Prowess-Are you digging fiercely or madly leaping in the air after prey or your fav toy? Show off your athletic feats!
Context- Send with your photo- the setting! Why?What started it? or where were you?
Overall Cracker Insaneness- overall level of cracker and insaneness mixed together.
Review or Print the Score Card to see the complete scoring criteria!
Cracker Dog Insane Terrier Score Card (if it doesn't open- email me and I'll send it to u!

Good luck Cracker Insane Terriers! And my Heeler pals- Mango needs some herding entries! Right now only PeeWee the LABradork is enter.. come on.

Before I leave... it's' time.
TGIEWF! Here we go- up close!
eYe see snow on my nose ledge! Hmm but I look handsome here- if i do say so myself.
Super close! I have mini eyelashes! See them! Actually I'm trying to get some droolsicles in honor of the Mango for selecting me as judge!
But I think I'm stuck with a terrier snow beard!

This just in.. Breaking News... my blog assistant apologizes for her untimely visits to your blogs and comments! I'm doing her performance review this week and it will be addressed!


  1. Mommy spent an hour looking at our photos and she said none are that good. We feel like rejects. Anyway, with your suggestions perhaps she'll get at least one pic that is suitable. Love the snow beard on you!!
    Smooches, BabyRd and Hootie
    ps-Congrats on getting to be a judge. Remember who your fellow frogophile (or is it reptileophile?) is!!! XX-H

  2. G'day Norwood mate,

    Gosh you've got a tough category to judge with so many handsome terriers out there lol.

  3. Exceeds expectations, Meets expectations, does not meet expectations, totally sucks. Which will it be.


  4. Congratulation! You have your work cut out for you!

    Cut the assistant some slack, we may need her for our claendar next year!

    Who do I need to suck up to for the herding category?
    Happy Tails!

  5. I'm impressed Honorable Judge Norwood!
    your cat pal,
    p.s. I really like those droolsicles...can I lick one?

  6. Will you have to wear a bathrobe? Will you get to hit things with a strange hammer??? Will be be putting dawgs in the BRIG??? How much does this gig pay??? Will you get to carry a REAL gun (like that lady judge down south does) or just your pee shooter???

  7. Hi Norword,

    Wow! What a persteedjus job, a Judge! Boy, you are really climbing up the ladder to success! We are so proud of you!

    We wish we was Terriers.

    Riley and Star.

  8. Nice Snow Beard. And what a honor to be an expert in cracker dog.

    P.S. - I think there should be a floofy division.

  9. Snow ledge? You're such an intelligent dawg, Norwood. I don't know all the technical terminologies like you. I just call it my snooter.

    I know that you will be a great judge and you will be able to get whatever salary you want next season. Ellen DeGeneres will NOT replace our Norwood in the judge's seat, FOR SURE!

    My secretary needs a performance review also and it's not lookin' good for her either.

    Chester ;0=)

  10. that is a rockin picture of your snow beard. Who has the longest snow beard?

  11. Norwood

    We reckon you will make a brillant judge!

    Pity I'm not a terrier!!


  12. Very nice of you to outline the terrier criteria, Norwood!!! Hope the herding category gets more entries! Love your droolsicles - Asta has some on one of her latest posts too - it has just got to be soooo coooollldddd back there!

  15. I think Mango chose the right judge for the job!! We are sure you will do an excellent job Norwood!!!
