Dexter Day - On Saturday




I need to clear up a few things. First of all, Rick is a really nice guy who helped the Master to rebuild our barn and is now doing other things around the estate.

Second, some Relentlessly Huge beasties maybe need to stay out of the sun a bit more and stop thinking that everybody is out to get them.

Just look at the nice job Rick is doing on our patio. He pulled up all the bricks and raised the whole level with stones so that it would drain better.




RH thought that by keeping me away from my foodables bowl that he could get me to admit that I am part of some alien conspiracy against him. Look at him getting his dirty feet in my bowl.



I tried to explain all of this to him, but he just yelled at me, "GET AWAY! I KNOW YOU DID IT! IT WAS YOU AND RICK!!! EEEEE!"



Fine, be that way.

I have better things to do like go to agilities.

I haven't been in three weeks and it was good to see my little agilities pal, Taj, again.

We did our usual pre-school warm up.

I let her pretend to be a big dog for a bit.


Then I showed her what for!

I love it when she makes that googly eyed face at me!



Then time for all out wrestling. See the running person behind? That is because our labrabodies were flying every which way.



Looks like Sandi is here. Sandi is our classmate. She is a boxer, pitty bull mix and is super fast!

Momma forget to get a photo of her.



Agilities are great because it is just me and Taj and Sandi, so we get lots of practice.

Unfortunately, Sandi and I need to get locked up whilst our moms "walk the course" because we are a bit unreliable on our sit / stays.

That's because we can't wait to run! This is me waiting my turn. No pictures of actual stuff today because we were fast and furious and the moms all had to think really hard.



After school, nothing like a dip in the cement pond.

I usually bring Spidey with me because he floats even after you bitey him a few times.




Come on, Spidey, I'll save you.


I've figured out that when I am tired it is important to rest on the opposite side of the stairs from momma because otherwise she grabs me and makes me come out.


Sigh, pool time is over far too soon.



Oh look! For a minute I thought that was Mango on the other side of the fence. Hee hee.




I was trying really hard to stay awake in case there was more action to come, but found myself getting very sleepy.



Sleepy...



Dexter done!

That pool looks so inviting. In saying that I probably wouldn't go in it hehe. Me no like to go in deep water.

Sounds like your mama is better after having the sickies. Good stuff!

Wow Dexter, what a day - agilities & swimming. Your chocolate friend looks a lot like my brother Mason - you must have been in labradude heaven, being with someone who appreciates your antics (unlike Mango). Love the title photo as well as the one of you in the pool with spidey!

We gotta say Dexter that in the picture of you on the bricks you look a little guilty. Are you sure yer not in cahoots with Rick?

Just sayin...

Wrooo wrooo Dexter,
We always enjoy your posts, but we're a bit partial to Labbies!

Dexter, Mom says that you have the cutest face and she doesn't know how anyone could resist you. You are a beautitul lab. Perhaps we were a bit harsh about Rick, but please understand it is not him that we are concerned for, it is the alien that may have taken over Rick. My Mom made me watch a movie about invasion of body snatchers and it was quite frightening. Please be careful, that is all I am saying. I am certain the real Rick is a good person. Your agilities looked fun, but our favorite is when you swim in the cement pond and you got to take Spidey. Give Mango time and be on your guard.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Night, Dexter.

Hi Dexter, you need to ease up a bit on Mango. He's been under a lot of stress lately.

Joe Stains said...

Looks like great fun Dexter. I still kinda wonder what is going on with Rick and Mango.

Anyway, glad you got some pool time. I have one of those spideys too but sure don't want to go in any pool.

Sam said...

Agilities and swimming? Sounds glorious.

Your friend is pretty cyoot, too :)

Rick is doing a great job. Hopefully Mango will give it a rest.

We think Taj is beautiful!!

Stella said...

Good post, Dexter. You keep busy and that is good for you. Maybe it would be good if Mango had some outside activities. Or some medication like Dr. Denton's ClearThinker Pills. I think he needs a little help.

Kisses,
Stella

The OP Pack said...

Aha, now we understand the bricks. Hope Rick's plan works. And we hope you and Mango can come to some sort of understanding about all the evil perpetrated on him by someone.

woos, the OP Pack

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, floats in the water like ... um ... like ... oh hey look there's something shiny over there!

Deefor said...

Hi Dex
What a fun day! Agility and a pool and pouch pals. But I'd stay away from Rick. Mango knows best.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Dexter!
I understand Rick is doing a good job but I know Mango is suffering with the changes!
You had agilities and swimming time!
Pawesome!
Kisses and hugs

GoldenSamantha said...

You are one busy doggie, Dexter. We sincerely hope you are not helping Rick with the evils going on around there. You look pretty cunningly cute in that last pic - adorable in fact. But looks can be deceiving. The patio looks pawesome, I must say, and I'm totally jealous over your swimming in the cement pond. Thank goodness you saved spidey. Now you need to save the RH.

Hey Dexter
It's nice to hear your side of the story (sometimes...don't tell Mango!) You really are a cutie-pie (again...don't tell Mango!)
That patio looks in excellent shape...and so do you!
How about the impossible: - Give Mango a kiss from us!? (We'd love to see that!)
Tons of licks

The Thundering Herd said...

What an excellent day, Dexter. And the way you gently carried Spideyman - what a hero!

Martha Basset said...

We loved seeing you in the pool Dexter - very cool!
We hear what you are saying about Rick - he does seem to be doing a great job.
Mango seems to be struggling to cope with changes but we agree he might be getting a little paranoid!
We suggested he should come to Scotland - perhaps he could do with a holiday!
love and kisses

Mack said...

That Rick seems to be an okay guy. I think you're right - Mango needs to stay out of the sun today.

Agatha and Archie said...

The pool looks SOOOO inviting(Archie would really just dip his feet and I would hit the water with my paws) As for Rick? Well we think we need a bit more evidence...sorry little dude..Love A+A

♥Da fambly cat-a-blog kitties♥ said...

You are such a sweetheart. Mango just doesn't appreciate having such a wonderful and considerate and talented brofur.

Woodrow, Sweetie, MJ Campanella said...

looks like a really great time - we love agility and the pool - there couldnt be a better day

Owner of Storm and Jackal said...

Your patio is looking great!!

I enjoyed going along to your agilities class, but I'm beginning to think we need some pictures for proof that you actually do anything there. :D

And you have a very, very cute face in that last pic.

Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

You had a very full day! Lab and Lab bitey face...Very cool!

Those last two pictures are sure cute Dexter. You are giving Mango a run for his money in being the handsome doggie competition.

Life With Dogs said...

We're all fading in the heat Dexter, sweet dreams. Time to go to the Cape!

ocmist said...

Looks like that Rick person is doing a good job, but are you sure you haven't been duped, Dex? Mango is quite concerned! What if Rick has you hypnotized and has hidden something under the bricks in that patio? Mango seems so sure there is hanky-panky going on somewhere, and it WAS his place first...

Agilities looks like it was a Blast and so glad you enjoyed your swim. Maybe being away will help either you or Mango, whichever is wrong, to get your mind cleared up!
