Snow... again

Thanks to all my friends for warm and wonderful birthday wishes. Momma scheduled an extra special private agility class for my birthday that I was supposed to go to today, but it was CANCELLED due to SNOW!
Yes, it snowed again which means I didn't get any walkies and was forced to entertain myself with the Relentlessly Huge Beastie in the back yard. To make matters worse, the only available toy is this big ball which is fun on the ice, but not too much fun otherwise. You can't even pick it up.
However, Mango, simple creature that he is, goes kind of nuts when there is snow and he yells and sings to the ball. I have thoughtfully included this movie that shows you what I have to put up with. Its kind of dark, but the soundtrack is what counts.








I had to give the big guy a talkin to. I mean, we do have neighbors who don't need to hear all that moaning and groaning.

I grabbed him by the neck and gave him a good shake to try and get some sense into that alleged brain of his.Whoops. Guess he didn't appreciate my input...Time for some zoomies. Fortunately, I can still out maneuver him because sometimes he gets kind of steamed at me.Can you see my toothies? Pretty fierce.And how's this for fancy footwork? I can execute my doga moves while doing a drive by.That's about as good as it gets on snow days around here. I think everybody but me is hibernating.Dexter done!

Randi said...

Aww Dexter...Its very nice of you to let Mr. R.H. display his WIDE vocal range...you as back up offer a very nice harmonic co-LAB-eration!

Are you sure Mango Man realizes that's a BALL & not some frozen alien egg that will hatch whilst he is singing?

Too bad your little head shake on him kinda backfired...whoopie is right!

I wish I could play in all that snow with you, we'd have a blast...

Love & Licks,
Your Cougar,
Randi

Abby said...

Hi, Dexter...

Oh My...Mango's growl is as Relentlessly Huge as he is...

Do you think he was growling at the ball or you? I think I'd be a little careful, if I were you...

You seem to love the snow...I hate it...

My Mom is gonna take me out for a minute & get some pictures of our snow...

You will see why I am not a big fan of winter...

Abby xxxooo

Wow, woo do have a lot of snow and we still have NONE. Mango seems to be enjoying his large orange popsicle, doesn't he?

Nice post, Dexter.

Niamh said...

Dexter,

You manage to have fun no matter how bad the weather is. I am sure that you can run rings around Mango. But be careful that he doesn't squish you.

Your friend,
Niamh

Amber-Mae said...

THUMP...the sounds of an unconscious Lakeland terrier fallin' to the ground after viewin' the pic of Studmuffin Mango...

Yo Pee Wee...wow...Lac is out cold...you dudes were really singin' to that ball...I have to admit we've never sung to a ball...is it fun? You looked like you were enjoyin' urselves!!

Um...did Mango have a Koi named after him that lived in Butchy and Snickers pond?

Um...Lacie jumped into the pond to rescue Butchy at the skatin' pawty, but forgot she couldn't swim...she came up for air for the third time and um SWALLOWED A LARGE DROOLIN' KOI...she said the tarter sauce helped alot...she said the thing is talkin' to her from her tummy regions...and that it's name is Mango...only Lacie...

Boy Pee Wee...you sure were small when you were a puppers..that puppy pic of Mango...he was hooge even then!

Pawslaps..

Ruby Isabella said...

Happy belated birthday Dexter. Mango sounds like Chewbacca sometimes.

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

We'd love to have all that snow!

Tibby said...

Hi Dexter!
It looks like you had a wonderful time in the snow! I love your fierce bitey face! You look very furocious!

Stanley said...

Dexter!

Maybe you could be Mango's manager. He needs to take that voice OUT ON THE ROAD! I'm volunteering my sissy, Stella as your first roadie. She'd be great. Or, she could be a backstage bouncer. Whichever you prefer!

In case you didn't see our earlier burpday greetings, just know we're glad you arrived on the estate and that you were born, dude!

Goober love,
STanley

Eric said...

Eeek, snow over ice?? I saw you slipping and a sliding on the earlier videos...you a need sledge each like Asta. Mom can pull you as she's the only one with the snow shoes. Or just stay inside and snoooze on the new beds. Much safer. Belated barkdays Dexter!You get more handsome every month.

Wiry wags, Eric xx

Dannan and The Girl said...

Excellent snow play, Dexter! Wrooo!

Biggie-Z said...

Ha, you are so lucky to have such a big play area connected to your house!

I think despite Mango's size he would make a very good soccer player. I'm more ice hockey and football.

I'll have to play it for Biggie later.
