The Year of the Labradude

In honor of the Pee-Wee's first burbday, I am going to provide you with a retrospective on the little dude (see, I am not such a bad guy).

Month 0 - The Pee-Wee is born. I don't know which one of these little pee-wee midget hump meisters in training is him. Mind you, I had been asking for a puppy all my own ever since my Beautiful Raja crossed over the bridge. But I had been very specific that I wanted a full sized pup, preferably a gal, hopefully a blond. So you can imagine my disappointment when I saw these labrapup things and was told one would soon be living on my estate.

Month 1 - Momma and Master visit the pee-wee manufacturing plant to decide if they really want one. I suspect that Dexter is the one stealing a snackie off his momma since he is ALWAYS hungry!

Month 2 - The arrival of Pee-Wee to my Mango Estate. Even as a little pup, he was challenging the Mango. Check out how he's giving me the labrastare.
Month 3 - He graduates from labrahump school (yes, that's him on top).
Month 4 - TROUBLE! As you can see, at a young age, he was already getting his labrastink all over my large and meant for me bed as well as stealing my stuffies.
Month 5 - Perfecting his stair technique and subsequently entering forbidden zones of the estate and chowing down on my stash of kibbles.
Month 6 - Celebrating Independence Day
Month 7 - The discovery of water; leading to being constantly wet until the pool shut down in October.

Month 8 -
Oh, whoops, that was one of my baby pictures. How did that get in there?

See? I don't make this stuff up. Dude was like in the pool for two months.

Month 9 - Still with the water sports (and by this time that pond must have been quite chilly).
Month 10 - Ha ha! This is his labrabutt.

Month 11 - He is finally big enough for serious bitey face which turns out to be way fun.1 Year - I let Dexter pick out his one year photo and he chose this one. It is right after he went to the salon and he is nekked (hee hee).

Why I like Pee-Wee (by Mango)
1) He wakes me up when there is an intruder.
2) He is fun to bitey face.
3) He keeps me fit.
4) He hates the mastiff mobile so I still get my ride to myself.
5) Gosh, I just kind of like the little dude and miss him when he isn't around (go figure).

Momma helped me make a movie of us playing on the ice yesterday to show how much fun we have together.

OK, enough labrastuff, here's my studmuiffin photo. Mango Man Oh yeah!

Happy Birthday Dexter!

That was really nice of you Mango to put together all those photos. I like all the water ones since I love the pool too. However I think you are much more handsome with you brindle hugeness than the pee wee.

Your friend,

Mack said...

What a great gift to your brother!!! We loved every bit of it - what a cute pup pup puppy Pee Wee was - and now he is ONE!!!! He sure had a fun first year. That snow skating scene was hilarious.

Mom is still laughing at woo sticking your own puppy face in there.

Woos, the OP Pack

Stanley said...

Mango bud!

That was quite a retrospective on the Dexter Dude! You are a supremely cool big brother, you know that?

It was all quite sweet as your story progressed, but we were awed and mystified by your puppy photo, then by your cool roachin' photo at the end. Quite a nice mix of labradude & much-needed Mango!

Goober love,

Lady Kaos said...

Awwww, Mango you're such a great big brother!!!!! Dexter is very lucky to have you!
Happy Birthday Dexter!!!!

Mindy Lu said...

BARK! My favorite picture of you, laying on your back smiling at me. Did you get lots of tummy rubs showing them the belly? Daddy said there is nothing cuter than a big dog showing the belly! Sasha the Princess!
