So the Mango-Minster competition has started. I am kind of stressed over my duties as judge.

Joey's new collar, he is thrilled, honest
BUT I wanted to show you my new collar.

Now I have to go back to studying breed standards and practicing being judgly.

Hi Judge Joe:

I like your new collar too and wonder if Patience made it, did she? My mom is gonna get me one of hers.

No worry about being a judge cuz I watched the big show tonight and all the judges did was wear fancy cloze, walk around, and point at the winners. Do you have a tux? I could send you the dog tux I made for the late, great Eddie. Its not bad looking and would probably fit you fine. It would be better for this occasion than, say, your Fart Shirt.
Let me know if you want it.

Hi Joey,
Gee... it's tough being a judge cos all the contestants are so good in their respective categories! Unfortunately I didn't get the judge's vote in the toy category, but thank you for voting for me in the reader's vote!
Your collar is real cool.. stands out very nicely against your fur..

Hey Judge Joe Stains,
Oh, who cares about breed standards! Why should we let some snooty people decide what we should be like?
Embrace the abnormal! Delight in deviance!
I envision you as the rebel judge, so set your own standards, man. Oh, and make sure I win, k-thanx.

It is difficult for me to comment, as I don't want to be accused of "creeping to the Judges" or putting any form of inducement your way.

However, your collar is totally amazing!
