Forbidden Zones

Dexter here! Ready to share with you the stupid rule of the week... there are too many Forbidden Zones on the estate. For example, there is typically a gate blocking access to upstairs.

Why? There are tons of fun things up there! Besides, its like practicing agility, right? But I'm not supposed to go up there without stupid vision from momma.

The estate is under a continuous improvement program, so there are lots of spaces which have been designated as unfinished and those have particularly interesting items in them.I'm also supposed to have stupid vision when I go downstairs. What's down there that would be so bad for me to find?Aha! This is where they keep the stash of puppy food.I wouldn't eat it all at once... I promise! Don't I look scary? Out of my way! Let me at that puppy food!Most frustrating of all is being denied access to this room which typically has the door shut.I know what goes on in there. I can hear water running and splashing almost every day. Sometimes momma or master come out and I can see from their wet hair that they've been having some sort of pool party. I love pool parties!Once I snuck in and while I didn't find the pool, I did find this really cool toy. This is so much fun I'm surprised that momma and master aren't in here all the time.Check out my big dog toothies! Ignore dinosaur sized beastie in the background.I have been working on my meditation skills. I've discovered that a key to proper meditation is having the right surface to relax upon.Oh, for all you Relentlessly Huge fans, here's a picture of Mango.Hee hee.

Dexter done!

Poor Dexter. With all those stupid vision, you can't have as much fun as you would wanted right?

Is that Mango's bed that you are sleeping on? I look a little too big to be yours.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Dexter!
You are so right! There are so many forbbiden zones there!
I love the bathroom in my house and the best part is that it does not have a door!
I hope Mango does not see that last picture!
Kisses and hugs

stupid vision is stupid. You should be able to go where ever you want.

Amber-Mae said...

I can't believe you're not allowed to go up the stairs. You look sooo small on that Mango Bed.

Saint Lover said...

OH Dex.. I have 4 labs so you don't fool me! I KNOW you will eat all that food in one sitting!

We have forbidden zones here too. If the girls get into one of them... they will poop on the floor! grrrrr

what is it with labs?!

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Hi Dexter!
Mom's and Dad's think the dogs can't jump all the obstacles than they put.
Than you said,is a really stupid vision jijiji!
A lot of hugs for two!

Maggie & Mitch said...

We have one of those stoopid gates at the bottom of our stairs too, Dexter! It's to keep you-know-who from destroying MY bedroom toys!
We don't see Mango in that last picture - just some dumb old stump and that's sure not Mango!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mack said...

Dexter -
You are getting so big!! Do you think you'll get as big as Brother one day??

I think you need to jump over those gates and do some exploring!!

Ferndoggle said...

Dexter, you're one funny little dude! We have all kinds of forbidden zones at our house too. Dad's man cave is so fun but completely off limits. Boooooo!


Khyra The Siberian Husky said...

Oh Dexter -

Me thinks Mango will spend today meditating on how to get even with woo fur that khomment/khaption -

Woo khan lots from him little one -

Don't make him have to sit on woo!


Sophie Brador said...

Oh Dex, Your pretty cheeky. Don't let Mango see that pic.

You are getting so big and looking more and more labradudey every day.


River said...

Forbidden zones are so wrong.

love & wags,

Moco said...

We hate tht stupid vision. Always some one looking for you and telling you to get out of things. I think I need to get my eyes check. That picture of Mango looked really small.

Deetz said...

Your so funny Dexter. Hope you and Mango have a wonderful weekend.

Opy - the Original GruffPuppy said...

hey buddy,

you have been nominated for Post of the Month over at the Bone Zone - head on over and cast your vote :)


Agatha and Archie said...

You just keep getting bigger!! Hope your brother does not see that last picture...oh boy,Love A+A

Joe Stains said...

uh oh dude, you better high tail up or down one of those sets of stairs because Mango Man is not going to like your attempt at humor.

Toffee said...

Heyyy! Dexter! What is that green thing on the rug in the second to last picture? I think it is an amoeba! Is it an amoeba? I had an experience with an amoeba! Your house looks like loads of fun!! I hope you appreciate every nook and cranny!

Sami & Baylee said...

Dexter, What will Mango do if he sees you on his bed? Or have you taken over it? Maybe he will share. You sure are growing big fast and look very handsome.

Abby said...

Hi, Dexter...

You are getting sooo big...You must be avoiding the stupid vision & sneaking some of the puppy food...

I hate forbidden zones...So I learned how to jump over every gate my Mom bought...I'm short, but I can jump...

Abby xxxooo

Tenkiller Airedales said...

Good grief! What is with the hoomans and the forbidden zones anywayz!? We have them here, cept' we usually storm the gates, dig up the grass, chew whatever we can find anywayz. I get so sick and tired of hearing NO, LEAVE IT, and YOU'VE DONE IT NOW!!! It is OUR HOUSE, Mommy just gets to stay with us.... and buy the food, do the awful grooming, walk with us, play with us, and be our personal maid. My paws go out to you!!

Slurps, Apache and the tribe

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Dexter!!! Why don't the humans let us explore what is rightfully ours? I have a zone set up in my house too. I have a gate that was put right infront of our third bedroom. Apparently that's where the cats go to get away from me...bah!

Hope you're having a good weekend!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley

Noah the Airedale said...

G'day Dexter
There are doggy gates all around our place too. Especially out to the B&B. I guess they don't want Lucy & Willow jumping all over the guests.

Hugs and tail wags

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Dexter...are ya sayin' Mango's a stump????? Ya got Mumsie giggling again hard enough to make her eyes that was a little harsh Dexter!!! But really, really funny!!!!!

You are growin' into on handsome puppers!! ya date yet? There must be some adorable pupgirl who would like to go out with ya!!!

No fair the peeps won't let you guys have free range over the housie...we're not allowed either. Scruffy's bladder was too leaky for a long time and now Mumsie doesn't trust us...harumph...


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

To Mango's Momma:

OH MY...Actually it's Mumsie here....Lacie just made me check out Hector's Wheelie Wednesday at Work which we missed while on vacation.


S w e e t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you need a nurse in your office??? I'm sure I could be of assistance...whoever lost that bloody arm could have used some medical help! I will be submittin' my application to you shortly. Too bad ya don't live in Pittsburgh!

Um...I thought my sense of humor was well...unique....

Pee mail me...we have a lot in common (perhaps we'll be committed to a funny farm together; my family is convinced of my um...insanity....)...

Mumsie...aka Marilyn

Harry said...

You are getting so grown up looking Dexter. I'm sure you'll be allowed up and down the stairs before too long.

babyphat523 said...

Aw Dex, we still have baby gates by every staircase too because Chums is still super clumsy and a little too inquisitive for her huge self

xo :)

Frasier said...

Hi Dexter
That room with the pool parties is where you will be when you get a bath.I hate baths!
Say Hi to mango

Deefor said...

Hi Dexter
I used to run all over my house till my evil bro Arrow moved in. Now there's lots of closed doors. Can't sleep in bed by day. Can't go lots of places. Not fair. I say the better you act-- when the humans are around-- the more you get.


Asta said...

Hoomans don't seem to know what fun toys thewe awe all ovew..and when we discovew them they always take them away..not faiw...if I evew have a pool pawty you will cewtainly be invited
say hi to my Mango
smoochie kisses

Nessa said...

Do it again!

Charlie Daniels said...

G'day Mango & Dexter !

Well, I've finally managed to sniff my way over to your place .. there are just so many new friends to meet on DWB!

Forbidden places just aren't fair are they? I have one of those blocking things in my place too!
