Twinkie V. Twinkerson

Too often, great dogs go unrecognized in their own lifetimes. Charlie, therefore, would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to a great dog of our time... a pup without peer... the chihuahua of choice... living legend, the Honorable Judge Twinkie V. Twinkerson.


Ms. Twinkerson, the uncredited co-author of Twinkie: The Tiniest Dog in the World, is the sponsor and judge of a series of highly acclaimed and incomparably wonderful Pet Photo Contests. Dogs around the world eagerly await announcement of these competitions.

The image of impartiality, Judge Twinkerson, a tiny teacup chihuahua with a big big personality, is also a noted judge at MangoMinster 2011. Charlie is honored to be in the group being judged by Ms. Twinkerson and would like to demonstrate a small token of his great gratitude for her patronage selfless commitment to fair play.

In an aria from the new opera, The Barker of Seville, that he has written and will perform in her honor following MangoMinster, Charlie sings his undying praise of Ms. Twinkerson. In this short clip, Charlie works with his mom vocal coach:



In the following scene from the opera, wealthy Count Alpovida, who disguised as a poor student has won the love of fair Twinkina, here reveals his identity and reconciles with her. Charlie barks the role of Alpovida. The role of Twinkina, whose casting will be announced after MangoMinster judging is complete, is written for a teacup chihuahua soprano, but here is barked by a stand-in. Charlie fervently hopes to announce soon that a teacup lead has been found.



Furthermore, since he knows that the presence of a little brother can be a distraction, Charlie is making arrangements to take care of little Pedrito so that Ms. Twinkerson is able to give her full attention to MangoMinster judging and attending the subsequent operatic gala.


Charlie hopes you will join him in applauding Ms. Twinkerson - a dog who deserves to be recognized in her own time!

That is a most appropriate tribute to the honorable Twinkie. Let me know if you need a nice baritone.

Slobbers,
Mango

P.S. You are sort of a counter tenor, eh?

OMD Charlie!!! I will have to go over this post again and again. It's sooo cute and fun. I'll also share with our common friends on my blog. I'm also adding about a few dozen million points to your score card. Not only did I find your post brilliant and hilarious, I also DEEPLY appreciate the "taking care of Pedrito shot"
Too bad I can't declare a winner yet. I have to abide by Mango Minster rules BOL
The Honorable and Fairest Judge Twinkina

Abby has been stumbling across so many posts related to Mango Minster that tear her in different directions that she's going to be confetti by the time MM is over. As an AVID lover of opera, Abby [and mama] are most appreciative of your chef d'oeuvre. Excellent adaptation, strong [and we mean STRONG] voices, clever staging. We also appreciate Charlie's giving a whole new meaning to puppy sitting.

On the other hand, as the [self appointed] Guardian of Judicial Ethics for Mango Minster 2011, Abby fears Charlie is sailing perilously close to the wind in dedicating his chef d'oeuvre to the actual judge of his MM category before the judging has even taken place. Abby is not throwing a flag on the play yet, but it's out of her belt and in her paw. So walk softly, Charlie. And Judge Twinkie.
