Momma is a Wimp and I am Bored

Its winter here in Master Chew Sits which means it can get cold. I'm not bothered by any weather; hot, cold, rain, snow, whatever, but Momma is apparently more fragile. Here is what she wore for walkies on Friday.

That's a sub-zero parka (hood engaged), ear warmer, neck warmer, sweater, long underwear, sweatshirt, gloves, mittens, regular socks, fuzzy socks, flannel lined jeans, and snow sneakers. You have to be kidding!
Here's a close up of the sweatshirt for all you aire-dog fans.
I am always subjected to a weather report prior to walkies that I have managed to decode.
"Oh Dexter, its a bit chilly out there." We will likely go on our usual 3 mile walk, with sneakers at our usual brisk pace provided there is no ice.
"Oh Dexter, its bitchin cold out there." Our walk will only be about 1.5 miles at a slightly diminished pace due to impaired mobility either from ice or snow sneakers or both.
"Oh Dexter, its f*&king freezing out there." No walkies! And only a brief time in the back yard for retrieving provided there isn't extreme wind chill.
To top things off, today is the last day of Momma's vacation and of course she has "a million things that HAVE to get done before she goes back to work." And I don't think a long walk is part of the agenda...
So the DOH has had all week to get stuff done and she leaves it to the last minute. I pointed out that there was apparently plenty of time for book reading and movie watching.

So I'm stuck in the house for now and I AM BORED!
I can't even interest the RH in some inside bitey face because he seems to have gone into hibernation for the winter.

There's a whole world of fun out there just waiting for me...And by the way, I don't appreciate doggies making comments that the dinosaur beastie should fart on me, sit on me, growl at me, or otherwise discourage me from sleeping on the orthopedic bed. Primarily because I just look so darn cute all curled up on it, don't I? Come on, admit it, I'm a cute little labradude.Dexter done!

My Mommy hates the cold too and she has lately been just letting me out on our deck instead of walkies. She is such a chill baby that at this very moment she has the blow dryer on her lap to keep her cozy warm.......... I get into trouble when I'm bored, how about you?

Hugs, Kodak

Hi, Dexter...

You are definately a cute little labradude...But, it is Mango's bed...

I'm not getting much outside time either...Upstate NY gets pretty cold & snowy, but I'm not too upset about it either...My feet get really cold out there...

I can't wait for spring...

Abby xxxooo

Our Mom doesn't really like the cold either but she does manage to put on her layers and take us out at least in the backyard where we can play zoomies. Where is her fur coat?? We don't mind the cold...

Too bad that your momma doesn't enjoy the cold as much as you do. I say the colder the better. But please let Mango have his orthopedic bed - he needs it.

Your friend,

Peanut said...

Tell your momma to pack you and RH up and come down here to lousy anna. We have the a/c on.

Joe Stains said...

omdog dude, why do you want to go out in that freezing cold?! What if your feet freeze to the ground and you have to stay out there forever?! it could happen I bet! Sorry you are bored, maybe you should learn to read?

Dozer and Coop said...

We're with you! Our Mum is all of a sudden motivated to clean up her office when she is less than 24 hours from returning to work. What do these women think of? Couldn't they plan ahead just a bit?


Coco said...

Ok Dexter, your a cute little labradude; but it is Mango's bed.

We're with you, Dexter! The cold is not all that bad! It's very refreshing and very invigorating! How does your mom even move with all of that winter stuff on?!
Our mom NEEDS that sweatshirt! Please ask your mom where she got it so we can tell our mom!

You are cute there! You are so smart to decode your mom's words.

love & wags,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Dexter!
I am sure it was not easy for your mom to walk wearing all those clothes!
You need to figure out something to entertain yourself! I know you can do it!
Have a nice day
Kisses and hugs

Yup, my mama has been bundled up too for the walkies - I guess without fuzz that's what she's gotta do but it takes so looooooooooong...

Nice Aire shirt ;)


Mack said...

Yes, our dad is a big meanie weenie. That is Juanita the cockatoo bird in the cage. One time I got in really bad trouuble for "playing" with her.
My mom hates the cold too. She starts griping when it hits 50!!

The OP Pack said...

Our Mom doesn't like to walk in the cold too much either but she hates the ice the most. Too many hills and too much Phantom-pulling for her to be safe. It was pretty nippy here today but we did get a good walk in. She only complained about her fngers being numb.

We still think the solution for the orthopedic bed problem is to just get another one for woo.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hi PeeWee! You really are so cute all curled up on Mango's bed. You look just like a cute... little ... butt pillow!! (har har har)

I feel for you, maybe you should convince your humans to move to an apartment because then they HAVE to take you on walkies NO MATTER WHAT because they have no yard to turn you out into.

Have you tried inventing other games like "steal the laundry"? That one always gets me lots of attention and never fails to get a good game of chase going.

P.S. My Momma needs to get a pair of the flannel lined jeans for dog walking too. She is always warm enough on the walkie part, but then when she stands around in the dog run she gets cold. Humans are such wimps. Then again, they don't have fur.

Stanley said...

Dexter dude!

You ARE stinkin' cute, but the Mango man needs his ortho bed, buddy. So, if you're not gonna vacate on your own, be prepared for the methane onslought!

Goob love,
