Dexter Day - Humiliation

So yesterday a package arrived in the mail from this place which Momma said was for us.

OMG! Look what it was! A custom hoodie for the Relentlessly Huge! Can you believe it?

Momma said the nice lady at My Pet Haven helped her to measure the beastie and then she had to order about 900 yards of cloth to make something that actually fit him.

Even so, the hood was kind of snug due to the fact that his big old head is unimaginably large (the lady kept calling momma because she couldn't believe that the measurements were actually correct).

I found the whole thing kind of amusing. I mean, if it was possible for him to look even dumber, that super sized hoodie really did it.

But then the unspeakable happened!

Oh, I hope Randi doesn't see this. It is just too humiliating.

Momma tried on the dinosaur sized hoodie and it was even big on her (plus she though that having the message "Relentlessly Huge" so close to her jolly bottom might not be a good fashion statement).

Then Mango suggested we go outside to show off our new outfits!

This is too much! Please ignore the toxic slobber on my face. It is a hazard of living with the drool monster.

What a slob! He got his nice outfit all dirty already!

Then he yelled at me when I pointed it out. Plus he was disrespecting me for my dumb T-shirt and it was bad enough that I had to wear it, but I didn't need him blowing his disgusting kibbles breath in my face. I could have expired.

What else could I do?

SMACK DOWN!!! Who's the big dog now, you freakishly large beastie?

Oh yeah, I need to tell you that shortly after this photo was taken, we both were not looking where we were going and full body slammed into momma's knee (that would be about 300 pounds of flying dog). Momma cried a little and hopped over to the fence where she clung for dear life as our bodies continued to fly through the air. I hope we didn't break Momma.

My shirt got a bit dirty as well from all the Mango slobbers and such, so I volunteered to wash it.

And dry!

Dexter done!

P.S. Mango Momma here - for those of you who never thought you would find outfits for your full sized dogs, I recommend visiting My Pet Haven. They worked with me to get Mango's measurements and the shirt fits him great! As for Dexter, well, he is more of a nekked kind of guy.

Those are some pawsome shirts Mango :)
Big licks to you

tula said...

Hey Pee Wee & Mango,
Fancy threads you got--durable and even wash & wear!

Going to check out Pet Haven.. was wondering where a XL girl would find a dress for scooby's wedding?!! muwah!


Brodie and Ailsa said...

Oh hecks, hope mums dont see that. Ailsa gets cold and shes bin saying she may need shirt. I just knows she'll make me were one toos.

Gus said...

Very handsome shirts, and we we particularly like the way your mom customized them for each of you. They complement your furs very well.

Martha Basset said...

What very cool shirts!! We thought you both looked great but not sure if your mom will be pleased with you rolling about in the dirt!
We think you are both super models!
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xx

Abby said...

Did your's shrink when you washed it??

Abby xxxooo

Hi Mango,

How ya doing my friend. I'm been missing you guys bunches. Me and Mommy are having a wonderful time in the country but still no rabbits in sight but there are lots of cowdogs to bark at.

We are gonna miss having a computer when we grt back home.


Peanut said...

Oh man the whole family laughed and laughed at the picture of you smacking down Mango. I think mom needs to get Peanut a shirt and none for me. I feel your pain on the slobber. I have to deal with that also.


Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...


I see a khareer in modelling fur Mango!

As fur PeeWee, we'll keep looking fur something that suits your talents!


Owner of Storm and Jackal said...

Those are nice! I'll have to check out that website because Jackal will need something this winter. He is such a wimp.

Rufus, Indie (and Anita) said...

I didn't think you could get cuter! Those jackets are super cool!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango!
Your hoodie is pawesome! And Dexter t-shirt too!
Your mom is very nice letting you two roll on the grass wearing them!
Kisses and hugs

Ludo van Doggy said...

I thinks I have enough furs to escape that sort of humiliation...

hehe. Mango's amazing moves be very good. He jumps high!
~lickies, Ludo

Agatha and Archie said...

Enquiring minds want to know...How did you get it on him??? Love A+A

Jan's Funny Farm said...

You guys look great in your custom-made duds.

Is your mom's knee broken?

Heather and Pumpkin said...

I am so excited about Mango's new hoodie. I feel all doggies should have an extensive wardrobe. (I think mine is bigger than my mommy's.)


Joe Stains said...

omdog dude that hoodie is the BEST! I can't believe it! I also LOVE tht photo of Dexter in mid air, he looks like some freakish parasite.

Stella said...

I'm like Ludo, I don't like shirts on. Also one of the reasons my Mom got me for her dog is that I had plenty of fur and would not need any suits or sweaters to wear in the winter! So, yippee! Although I must say, Mango looks very handsome in his hoodie. PeeWee, ah, its a good color for him!


Dennis the Vizsla said...

You guys are looking very slick in your outfits -- you are now ready for a trip to The Hood!

Dozer and Coop said...

LOL! Hope your knee is okay :)

Dozer's Mum

Allison (Dog Mom) said...

We like the shirts! Thanks for the link to them!

Gus and Waldo

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh ya Mango you know exactly what to do with that hoodie.. A wash and a dry... Don't think us heelers will be wearing hoodies, they might shrink on us when we are in the lake
Hope you didn't break Mom. We know how frail girls can be...

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

The OP Pack said...

Those are great shirts, but we don't think we really need them. As it is, we are trying very hard to shed a lot of the fur that keeps us so very warm.

Our Mom feels for your Mom with the body slam - she has gotten that a few times from Big Boy TD and it doesn't feel very good.

Woos, the OP Pack

the TN Bull Terrors said...

cool duds, dudes! Hope yer Mamma ain't broke, who's gonna feed ya'll if she is???

Feather, Darla, Pappy & LizzaBella ^..^

Liffey said...

I think you look cute in your shirt Dexter- the colour matches your eyes!! Mango does look kinda daft though- especially with the hood up!
Liffey's licks to you

Anonymous said...

Hi Dexter! Wow, what cool clothes you and Mango got! I think that color looks very good on you, and Mango's is great! Sometimes Zeke and I run around and barge into our mom, too - mom's are so delicate - tsk!

See ya!

Owner of Storm and Jackal said...

Hi Mango! It's Jasmine. Nope I'm not made of cheese and I'm not offended that your Mom has goat cheese. In fact I can make goat cheese if I wanted to!


Pedro said...


I'm with you - I'm a nekkid dawg! Mom throws clothes on me every now and then but I just stand still until she takes them off. Relentlessly Huge is, well, relentlessly huge... I've never seen a dawg that big in clothes before!


the professionals said...

my h-mom b laughed so much she cried - you two are characters!!! ive got a woofter shirt that belongs in the closet too it will feaure in my post this thursday on cobalt - licks and slobbers the bigger the better mango - doyle

Huskee and Hershey said...

Those shirts are the coolest!! I like to be nekkid too but my mom does NOT seem to get it.. duh!!

If you did break your mom with your rough-housing, I hope you managed to glue her back together before meal time!

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Those are So Awesome!!!! Sorry, Pee-wee, but Mr. Relentlessly Huge looks fantabulous in his hoodie. And actually, I think you look pretty nifty in your shirt (hey, you can't help your nickname - it's not like you picked it, right?!?).

And I hope you didn't break your Mom. Broken Moms seem to be much slower when it comes to dinner time.

Mango - thanks for harassing Mom - she finally got up a few measly pictures. (Finally!) I think your big huge-ed-ness cowed her into doing what she should have done a long time ago!

BTW, Mom wants me to let you know that she has complete faith in your ability to walk a mile (and not even breathe hard while doing so!), and has contributed to your cause.

*Kissey face* - Fiona


Hoodies? It's 80 degrees out. Did momma get them with your names on it b/c of the old dotty hen disease? She's forgetting your names?

Hey peewee.. mom's sending over some laundry for you to do. OH - thanks for stopping by my kissing booth. I've never been kissed by a large beast before.


Randi said...

Awww DEXTER! My little cub! You look sooo adorable in your tightie PEEWEE shirt! Looks a bit snug on you, but thats might as well show off your young bod while its still in great shape!

& I have a request, can you take that piccie of you pouncing on RH whilst you are in the air (GREAT DOGA MOVE BY THE WAY!) & add it as your header...That's the BESTEST piccy EVER!

Your Big Bro RH looks pretty handsome in his shirt too & I sure hope you didn't break Mamma's knee! Whos gonna feed you if she can't walk?

Love & Licks,
Your Cougar,

ps...I think that shirt makes you able to fly!

MJ's doghouse said...

Aki and Poopie said...

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh Dexter, this post was soooooooo funny! My Jeannie has tears running down her face with laffter!

She says to tell Mango, it doesn't matter if he has a big head, it is a lovely head!

I had to be cut out of my t-shirt a few weeks back, as my Jeannie couldn't get it off me!

Thanks for making us laff!

lotsaluv Marvin xxxxx

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

You always give our huMom ad great laugh every day - she loves your shirts, especially Mango's.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java


Happy Memorial Day!
Hopefully Momma will serve up a livercake to celebrate!

You'd think mom would want to spend all day with me but she's excited to go to Wrentham Outlets.. What's that about.

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

we knew it was going to be a good post by the title. nice job on the commentating dexter! we really love the hoodies! you guys should feel proud to wear personalized clothing. secretly though--we DID laugh at Mango's hoody--hehehe!!!

Mack said...

Those outfits are sooo cool!!

My mom say she is gonna go visit that lady's site right now.
Any guess as to what Paris' shirt is gonna say?!

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

We love your new outfits, guys! Our mom says she hopes you didn't break your momma, too! We like to run into our mom, head-on and try to bend her knees in the wrong direction! She says it hurts a lot, even though it's no where near 300 pounds of flying dog!

Happy Memorial Day!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

DCampy34 said...

you boys looks so handsome - we have t-shirt and jackets too - woodrow like to wear his jacket in the winter but other than that we are naked dogs too


Brind'Amour said...

Hi Mango and Dexter,

I hope your mom's knee is okay!

I'm just lovin' the shirts!!! I myself, have a lot of clothes but none that are custom made! You guys are sure lucky!


wally said...

P.S. I looked at the website and THERE YOU GUYS ARE! You're like SUPERSTARS. Your mom doesn't need to marry a supermodel, she already lives with two! (And I'm pretty sure that it's not legal or advisable to marry you guys.)

Niamh said...

You look very spiffy in your new outfits guys, but I'm with Dexter on this one. I don't like wearing clothes or costumes either, only bandannas.

Your friend,

Amber and Nala said...

BOL....those shirts are great!!! :)


ocmist said...

WOW! Someone actually made something almost big enough to fit you (hood is a bit tight I think... made you look like you had been given a facelift with your eyes pulled back like that.) THAT was really funny, as was the Kibble breath.

Mom's been reading your blog to Dad and he says if you multiply the 300 lbs. by you two's 8 feet, you get the foot pounds of force that you hit your Mom with... about 2400 foot lbs. but then Mom said you would have to add the speed at which she was hit to get the REAL total! Anyway, we gathered that meant that it's a MIRACLE you two didn't KILL her!

We sometimes hit people's knees and have been accused of trying to make them bend backwards... from what I've heard, that is a Corgi trait and they've even got some shirts on CafePress with a logo about it. I'll try to get Mom to copy one for the post we are doing about her CafePress stuff with our pics. OC, Dott & BG

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

Hope your Mom's knee got ok. You 2 are hilarious. Mom says once we get all our sh er stuff done (cleaning out gramma's things, packing our things, find a place to move and setlle in, we have to catch up on ALL your posts we have missed....(AND she is cussing the new pooter. Windows Vista sucks she says and well, she is in over her head with alot of the stuff on here. Control alt delete doesn't even do what it did on xp. Course she hasn't listened to any of the tutorials. She is more the kind that wants a book handy to look up a specific problem and this thing came with a tiny generic book.....)
