Award and Pool Opening

OK, some doggie gave us a nice award and Mango totally lost the email, so if you gave us an award recently can you let us know?

Some time ago, "we" got this nice award from a fellow retrieving doggie named, of all things, Dexter! He is the same age as me exactly. "We" were supposed to post the award when we got it, but Mango said since the award was obviously between us water dogs that I would have to wait for Dexter Day to post it. What a pain he is.
Here is about the award...

*As a dedication for those who love blogging activity and love to encourage friendships through blogging.
*To seek the reason why we all love blogging.
*Put the award in one post as soon as you receive it.
*Don’t forget to mention the person who gives you the award.
*Answer the Award’s question by writing the reason why you love blogging.
*Tag and distribute the Award to as many people as you like.
*Don’t forget to notify the Award receivers and put their links in your post.

I love blogging because:

I get to meet super cool doggies from everyplace.

Momma gets to learn about nice foodables and treats to give us from other doggies.

I would like to pass this award on to;

Lois Laney

As is typical here in Master Chew Sits, suddenly it's summer and just way too hot! Fortunately, Momma declared Dexter Day to also be the day of the grand opening of my swimming pool.

And this summer I was pleased to see that we had got a swimming pool upgrade to something a bit larger than last summer. Our new pool came with directions which included advise that we should avoid diving. Duh.

I couldn't wait to try it out. I have gone far too long without getting wet.

Of course the Relentlessly Huge Beastie had to dip his toes in as well leaving little room for me to enjoy myself.

I did manage to practice some of my strokes as you can see by clicking here.

Obviously, I was quite jazzed up. The Beastie, on the other hand quickly retreated to the shady part of the yard where he could produce copious amounts of slobber in peace.

He thought it was too hot for bitey face, but I said, "Oh no, bitey face is going to happen whether you like it or not!"

Pity the poor dinosaur sized creature who could only writhe futilely about when confronted with my dexterous dexterness.

A fierce face pinch. ARRRR!

And back into the pool. Ah! This is the life.

Dexter done!

Dr. Liz said...

Fione here. GREAT pool! I may have to talk to Mom and Dad about getting one for me, because you make it look like so much fun!!!!

Noah the Airedale said...

Nice pool action you got there Dexter. Funny how the pool shrinks in size when the big boy gets in hehe.


pam said...

Dexter you be careful with the sneaky bitey face. It will sometimes bitey face back!


Land of Lincoln Labbies said...

Wow Dexter Dude! Your swimming routine was absolutely Pawsome! Can't wait for our Momma to get our pool out...It's supposed to be hot this week!

The OP Pack said...

Dexter, yu sure do love that water - we really enjoyed watching you do all those strokes in there. Too bad they didn't get you the one with the slide now THAT would be even more fun!

Woos, the OP Pack

Oh Thank you Dexter! We are honored to receive this very artsy looking award! Oh and I don't know why that freakishly huge Mango call you PeeWee!

Pamela, Kira and Scampi said...

Wooo, Mango, I have got a great idea, you can have Scampi over to play with Dexter and his little pool, and you can come over here to play in my big pool with me!

Cool pool Dexter! I love the water too. I gave Mango an award recently so that may be what he meant. Enjoy your swimming.

Your friend,

Huskee and Hershey said...

Liffey's Licks to you ***

Jake of Florida said...

What fun you were having, Dexter!! And we loved the part where the
Relentlessly Hoooge one dips his toes into the pool and circles.

Too too cool!! Even though it was hot, hot, hot!!!

Ooooh lucky dogs! We won't be able to get our pool out for another few months cuz it is toooo cold, so we will just have to enjoy your pictures for now!

Brind'Amour said...

Nice pool!!! But I thought you said there was no diving. It looked to me like Dexter was doing some olympic quality moves in that video! Us, with our shrimpy legs, have to jump in pools of that size. I admire your tallness Mango!


Martha Basset said...

Congratulations on your Award Mango - hope you find out who gave it to you. We are glad that it is not just us!!
Seriously we now try to save them with the name of the doggie who gave them to us as otherwise we lose the plot!
The swimming pool looks cool - we may pop over for a dip - looks about the right size for us although you would have to get out first!!
Have a good day
Martha & Bailey xx

Lois Lane/Laney said...

Thanks for the nice award Dexter!
Hmm, I don't know what I'd do with a pool in my yard. But Mom may get one for me anyway. Just as long as she doesn't force me into it.

Nibbles Treats said...

You should have had a pool party and invited all your dog friends like us who have been sweltering in this crazy burst of heat we've been having. Our family actually had to turn on the air conditioner!

Tinkerbell, Oscar and Tucker

Mack said...

By any chance do you have some cocky cocker spaniel in you??? Cause my lil siser Parisite likes to bite and hang on to my jowls just like that!

Amber and Nala said...

Dexter, your strokes look pawfect! You will have to teach the Mango Man how to do it since you are obviously the professionsl!


Joe Stains said...

You really got moving in that little pool buddy. I think Mango was trying to be a lifeguard or something, but I think he is too big for your pool. I am glad you are back to swimming action!

Minnie-Moo (Rescue Lab) said...

We love your new header photo boys :) We've had sunshine but are not so fond of the water.

Mango, you don't sound too excited about my brother's new collar - shame as they do a nice one in pink which would suit you and it wouldn't matter if you drooled all over it either ;-)


Tom and Tama-Chan said...

How wonderful to have a pool to splash about in. Of course, here, we can splash about in the RAIN! And it's COLD! Double Yuk!

Your Friends,
Tommy and The Girls

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh wow! We loved your pool video and the mooooosic.

I am sorry we have not been commenting so much, my J is still trying to catch up after her visit to Aus.

Your sunshine looks amazing.

lotsalicks, Marvin oh and Jeannie, but not so many lick, just love!

Don't think she could cope with the slobberfest!!

aninhas said...

hugs and kisses from kikos world

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Checkers said...

hey mango - I wonder if my mommy would get me one of those pools....more importantly - i wonder if i would get in it????

Ludo van Doggy said...

Dexter, you gived my Mum a good laugh with your pool swimming. I does not know what she laughing about, I think you looked athletic and graceful doing your swimming strokes like that! Congrats on the award too.
~lickies, Ludo
peeess: I tried out your advice at my last agility class and I just ranned about everywhere and did all the jumps and tunnels I could. It was way more fun than just doing what Mum wanted. Thanks bud!

Sophie Brador said...

Dex, Mom so wishes I would play in a pool like that, but I only wait for the water to freeze so I can dig on the ice. That's the only interest I've ever shown in a pool. I'm weird. What can I say?


Luna and Sole' said...

Pee Wee, er, Dexter!

10 out of 10! You couldn't even wait for a full pool! Extra score points! But, if the big guy is going to join you much, you will need a bigger pool! Him just stepping into your pool will make your pool lose gallons of water! No fun!

Barks at ya!
Luna and Sole'

DEXTER DEXTER! I have two very important points for you!!

ONE: I think that there should be MORE DEXTER DAYS!!! There are 7 days in an week, and only 2 of you... I think you deserve at lease TWO more days!! :) I will address this with the Mango if you would like me too.

TWO: YOU HAVE TO COME SWIMMING AT MY LAKE WITH ME!! You won't believe what I did on SUNDAY! You will be soooo proud of me!! :)

I think I saw some diving in that video. I don't know about that. I like wading so perhaps I should get one of those pool dealies. I also saw Dexter doing the cool-down-roachin'!

Stay cool, guys!
