Happy 4th of July

Dexter here! Before I get to the business of the day, I need to congratulate Hector for winning post of the month two months in a row from the Dogs that Blog! Way to go little wheelie!
Momma and Master both went to work today and by the time Momma got home I hadn't eaten in 12 WHOLE HOURS! So I demanded dinner.... NOW!!!

Due to extreme heat, after dinner we were allowed to indulge in home-made frosty paws (Brutus bowls). The Relentlessly Huge swallowed his whole and then was left wondering why he didn't get one.I was prudent enough to take mine into the big yard to savor.Even so, it was gone much too quickly and left me wondering if there would be more.Ah, but there were worse things coming. First, Momma went out to put little flags and things along the driveway in honor of Independence day, which I think means kicking out the evil Brits from the US (sorry Harry and Cassidy). Its kind of hard to see, but trust me, the flags are there.Then she got the idea that maybe me and the Relentlessly Huge should celebrate the 4th as well. So she put this thing on my neck. Sigh...I hoped that if I was willing to provide one good shot with the stupid thing on my neck that she would be satisfied. OK, am I cute enough, are we done?But noooooo! She says, "Oh Dexter, you would look so cute in my 4th of July shirt!" That sounds like trouble.Get this thing off of me!I bit the dratted thing until Momma despaired that I would (gasp) damage it, so she relented.And turned her attention to the Relentlessly Huge who was less than pleased with his goofy collar...But agreed to a single pose (note eyes closed... I think he is in his special place).No comment...Wow! Makes that shirt look better and better... how embarrassing.Dexter Done! Happy Independence Day!

Your mom sure likes to torture you doesn't she? Happy 4th you guys

Happy 4th to you all! Dexter you sure were cute. I don't like wearing shirts either! Mango, you are handsome, no silly celebratory decoration can detract from that--although the flag in the mouth looked pretty cool. Did you bite it? Stay well, be safe tomorrow.

love & wags,

Mango, you look so patriotic waving (okay, chewing!) the American flag! Hope you have a great July 4th with lots of bbq treats!

Your pal,

Mango, you are so handsome with your decorations! Happy 4th of July!

Dexter, that picture of you in a nice sit is so funny because your head looks ginormous - almost as big as Mango-man's. I'm surprised your momma was able to fit a shirt over it. The only solution is to get as relentlessly huge as you can so no shirts will fit. That's my strategery and it seems to be working fine. That and "look so miserably hot no matter what the season that no one would ever think of adding more layers to you."

(Seriously, you think our people would get the hint - they don't talk about our magnificent "coats" for nothing)

High fives and play bows,
