In the UK with Randi

I had the most wonderful time at the big Halloween party because I finally got to meet Randi in person!

She is just so pretty with her little white paws and really nice and, oh RANDI!

We did some sightseeing. There was this big rock garden called Stoned Hinge. Randi tried to explain its historical significance, but to tell the truth, I didn't remember much because I was just so consumed by her nearness.

I thought these were statues because they stood so still and they were everywhere, but Randi said they were actually guards (oops).
Mostly we just enjoyed the beautiful surroundings...Oh, by the way, if you are wondering why I am on the banner today, its because some Relentlessly Huge beasties are in the dog house!
That's right, this morning while Momma was trimming Mango's nails, he got grouchy and said an HBO word at her and grabbed her hand in his mighty jaws. Her hand got a little bruised, but I think her feelings were what really hurt because her eyes leaked a little.

What a jerk he is. Ever since he's been all clinging to her and trying to make up. Look at that face. Even I feel sorry for him...

But I really can't be too bothered by his Relentlessly Huge issues. I have other things on my mind!Dexter done!

Looks like you and Randi had a wonderful time. Maybe you could talk that dude into letting you stand guard for a while.
Poor Mango we are sure that he didn't mean it Mom. Don't be to hard on him. He is just a big baby..

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

I'm so happy for you, Randi and you enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and you were so consumed by her nearness and her prettiness?
Mango, whose heart is not melting with a sincerely remorseful face like that? ( you said the HBO word? ah,it sounded so manly, I liked it).
Good bye Mango&Dexter.

Dozer and Coop said...

Sounds like it is time for PediPaws for Mango. Dottie goes ballistic when she has to have her nails done, hence the reason Mum takes her to vet for it. Mum got the PediPaws and is going to try getting us acclimitized to it, whatever that is. Hang in there Mango Man, you were just being a dog. Maybe you should bite your nails or something.

Love Dozer

Ooooh. Dexter's in loooooove. So sorry to hear about Mango's Bad Day. I have sometimes made my ma ape leak by being grumpy at her and I know it hurts her inside more than on the outside. And I do that repentant face and then she leaks some more.

What a lukhky boy getting to spend time with Randi -

I'd love to get to visit Ben The Handsome!

As for The RH - I know he didn't mean to do it just as your momma didn't mean to either -

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

Yo Pee Wee!! So ur growin' up Man!!That Randi is a keeper, that's for sure!!!

So Mango Man doesn't like his nails clipped? I um well never mind.

Stanny here, Dext...Scruffy has to wear a muzzle of nail trimmin' time...or he bites the livin' heck outta Mumsie's hands....oh well...she refuses to do Dale sized claws...I get em done at the groomer...your mom mite try a grinder...that's a lot easier!!!

Barkies, Dogs!

Dear Mango,

Cats do not fart.


Pee ess...are we still on for our date?

Pee ess ess...we know you didn't mean to rest ur gnashers on momma's hands...considerin' you called her 10 times a day from the UK, you love here dearly. Sometimes a dog just does stuff they shouldn't. Our feet are important to the wild if they got injured we wouldn't survive so it's natural we're a little overprotective of them. Kiss ur momma and tell her you're really sorry, kay?


Saint Lover said...

What a sweet picture of you Dexter. Tell mommy to get a dremel and train you guys to have your nails done with it... it'll keep the relentlessly huge from snapping at hands when he gets pinched..

Poor momma... big hugs

Snowball said...

You sure had a really good time with Randi. When is your next date?



Niamh said...

Dexter is in love!! Randi is very sweet looking.

I'm sure Mango didn't mean to hurt your mom. Maybe if she gives him some peanut butter while she trims his nails he won't be so cranky.

Your friend,

River said...

That sounds like you had a terrific time in London. Nothing like running through a field of flowers and peeing on a guard. Sorry to hear about RH--I hope he'll be more careful in the future.

love & wags,

Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

Wow, you guys have been busy! Outer space, blenders, a spat with Lacie, and D&R an item! We thought our lives were crazy!

Maggie and Mitch said...

We're so happy that you and Randi got to spend time in London together, Dexter! Did that guard grit his teeth when you peed on him?
Poor, Mango! I get grouchy with mom too when she tries to cut my nails so I know just how he feels! He really is sorry!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Abby said...

Hi, Dexter...

Looks like you've been bitten by the Love Bug...Randi is very pretty & you two make a great couple...

Poor Mango...He didn't mean to hurt your Mom...That Nail trimming thing can be scary...

Abby xxxooo

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

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

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Oh wow what a great trip you had Dexter. All that sightseeing. You should have popped over to meet us! :-)

Oh dear, naughty Mango but we are sure he didn't mean it. He looks so unhappy that he hurt your mum. Nail cutting is no fun. :-(

Your pals,
Holly & Zac

Dannan and The Girl said...

Dexter and Randi, sitting in a tree,

(The Girl told me to write that. Why on earth would you be sitting in a tree?! If you know how to get into a tree, please share the secret so I can catch me a birdie! Anyway, good job, Pee Wee!)

Mango, I feel your pain. I hate having a pedicure, and I make The Girl feel very bad about it. Then I feel bad, and I have to make the sad, forlorn face. Then we make up, and it's all better. I know you and your Momma will make up soon.

Brown dog kisses,

Mack said...

We get soooo very grumpy when we get our nails trimmed too!

Dewey Dewster said...

Gee Dexter....

Seems like yer in LOVE....'n with a cutie pie too....sorry ta hear about Mango 'n his grouchy disposition...not nice ta bite the hand that feeds ya....ya might not get another meal.....don't think Mango could live without too many....

Dewey Dewster here....

Peanut said...

You and Randi are cute together. Poor Mango I am sure he is really sorry. My mom has to sit on me when she cuts my nails.

Allison (Dog Mom) said...

MANGO! Be nice!

To mommy: have you heard of the new Pedi Paws tool? Supposedly it is like a nail file for dogs. I haven't used one, but I'm interested to see how it works. Waldo is not a fan of nail-trimming time, either.

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

Well Pee Wee, Looks like it is love. Y'all make a cute couple.
Now Mango. Dude. You must be careful and never do that again. Sometimes we just have to "grin & bear it" Can you grin? Your Relentlessly Huge toothers could do some damage, buddy. Maybe you were snapping at a fly? Yeah, that's it. (But don't do it again-yikes)
pee ess gramma is coming home this afternoon.

Chef said...

Dexter, my boy! You got bit by the love bug, eh? Well you and Randi are a very cute couple and it looks like she's quite taken with you too. As for your brother - you made your Mama cry, Mango... how could you? I hope you've given her your best licks by now, although I can't imagine how she didn't forgive you with that face of yours, you rascal!


Amber-Mae said...

Oh Mango, you should not be so mean to your Momma. She was just trying to make you feel comfortable by trimming your nails short. I'm sure you were apologetic to her right?

Butt wiggles,
Solid Gold Dancer
