Dexter Day - Enjoying the Day and Dexter Love!

I am glad that my friends like the new bloggy look. I was getting so tired of all those dark Mango colors and thought we needed to brighten things up.

Speaking of brightening, Momma stayed home from the work place yesterday to spend time with ME!

I got a fabulous walkie even though I had to practice my good dog attentions to wait for her to catch up. Hurry!

She was so huffing and puffing from walking at labraspeed that she was unable to take many photos, but I did pause long enough for her to capture me checking out this poor tree which seems to have suffered a grievous injury during our last storm.

When we got back to the estate, Evil Rick was there messing about in my yard.

He wanted to greet me, but I was not very patient. I wanted to see what he was up to.

This is odd. He put all our nice leaves into a big pile. I stationed myself and watched for any falling leaves that he might want to add to his collection.

Then he put all the leaves into our trailer. I am not really sure why he did this except that maybe he needed some exercise. People are strange sometimes.

Back inside, I took advantage of the fact that the Relentlessly Huge was unconscious (so what else is new) on the Observation Deck. Bring on the Dexter love! That's what I'm talking about.

I even made a movie! Nothing like a little extra attention from Momma to bring a smile to my face.

Dexter done!

Aniemother said...

I'm sure he's just collecting the leaves. If the hoomans collect dog poop leaves isn't at all that strange a collectible.


Frankie Furter said...

Hey Dexter that was a grreat walkie and your video is to "drool over".
I could use some YELP. It seems that something pawful has happened to my blog. All I can see is a screen as black as you are!! I don't understand this. I can get on everybuddy else's blog. Any Ideas???? You can post them here since I can see your blog.

Stella said...

Hey Peewee!

I like the new look blog too! You look like you had a good time with Mom and whats better than that!


BRUTUS said...

Hey Dexter! Nice to see you, but we are a little worried about what might happen when Mango finds out you totally hijacked his blog! All the leaves are falling out of our trees faster than the humans can pick them up. Why do they bother???

Happy Saturday :)

Mango Momma...Dexter told me he has a flea located under his left scapula...sorry...i can't reach it through the puter...what was amazing though is Dexter's LAB BREATH came right through our screen...he sorta smelled like peach raspberry smoothie...wonder why..I m a y have left some upstairs in the barn??....he is such an adorable boy...he could go as a reverse Dalmation on Halloween? I think I have the white paint...

How is Mango's hineyend? Is he ok to go on the ROTE today?? And get his car cookie? Any unused car cookies can be sent directly to us her in da Burgh...

As for those leaves? Dunno why Evil Rick was stealin' 'em...maybe he found someone to pay
em for them and he was takin' em to make $$?

Kisses to Dexter and Mango and love to you Auntie Momma...

Sam said...

Oh Dexter, you seem to be really enjoying your day!! You should have jumped in that big pile of leaves though. I hope your agilities training is going well too!

Mango said...

Hey Frankie dude, if you read this, I can see your bloggy just fine. I don't know what is going on at your place. Could be the critters have taken over and installed their own double top secret password.


Hoover said...

Hey Dexter,

I'm pretty sure the humans gather the leaves in piles so we doggies can run thru them and scatter them about. It is very important to run very fast and keep going as the humans cheers you on.

At least that's what happens here.

MAX said...

Hey Dexie-dude!
Here's the secret revealed: ....Ricky is gathering leaves to make you
Oooo how I love to laugh at my own jokes! (hehehehe)
Oh and by the way, Mom says you look extremely cute! We liked the idea of dotting you with white paint, but how about making it stripes then you can go as a special SOUTH AFRICAN ZEBRA?!
Lotsalicks Labradude! I like you too! (but don't tell the Mango man!)

Martha & Bailey said...

Hi Dexter, we are loving the new look - it is a big change from the brown and brightens you up!
We are just loving the piles of leaves too!
It is great to jump right in and sniff.
Have a lovely weekend.

Gus said...

Looks like you and your mom had a very special day.


Oskar said...

What fun to have you mom person all to yourself. I bet Mango gets jealous!

Frankie Furter said...

Hey Mango, I just read your comment above. I still can't get into my blog. What is this about critters getting my password? What kind of critters would be able to do that???? This blog problem is a pain in my tail.
My mom says maybe I have a virus like that Swine Flu thing. She isn't even interested in Yelping me with this.

Randi said...


Oh! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that piccy of you on your back & paw paws in the air & you are just OOZING CUB APPEAL!!!!

& nothing like a little pawsitive reinforcement for your mama by licking her hand while she's giving you love!

Love & Licks,
Your Cougar,

Biggie-Z said...

Hey Dexter! I like the new look but isn't the Big Guy going to be a little annoyed that you are taking over? Just loookin' out for ya...

I am a little torn because the Big Dogs need to stick together. And I'm somewhere between you and Mango.

P.S. You are being a very helpful little brudder with your Momma's laundry. I'm sure she appreciates it. Though at first when I saw the new picture I thought you had taken Mango hostage under that sheet.

Woo told me what your momma had on her agenda fur Friday -

But gettin' all labradorkiedoo wasn't on it!

Just plain Skary

The Army of Four said...

Hi Dexter! I like how you give your mama hand kisses while she gives you butt scratchies! That's so nice of you! And it was awfully nice of you to help the Rick biped with your leaves!

Gaucho Tibetano said...

Hi buddies..
he's just collecting the leaves, sure...

a big hug

Jazzi said...

Love the new blog!! Looks great!!

And what a fun day with your mom!!
Yha, people are funny about the leaves bit, same here too!!


1000 Goldens said...

Dexter, so glad Momma escaped the work place to focus on more important things such as yourself! Lucky you were there to keep an eye on Evil Rick. The guy clearly has issues.

Marjie said...

labraspeed is too much for mommas. My humans do not collect our leaves. They "mulch" them. I do not understand.


Dennis the Vizsla said...

hello dexter its dennis the vizsla dog hay i wil bet that the eevil rik is planning to sel those leevs on the blak markit!!! he wil mayk a fortchoon!!! yoo must stop him or at leest git yoreself a cut of the profits!!! ok bye

Swampechaun said...

Oh man! Quality time alone with mama is the best! We like your little movie, too.

The OP Pack said...

The new look is very nice. We have been thinking about going to white too but everyone seems to like the blue too.

Nothing better than some loving from Momma, especially if the RH isn't around to sneak in for some too.

The Momster says she does not miss all those fallen leaves at all, just the pretty colors when they are actually ON the trees.

Woos, the OP Pack

Sophie Brador said...

Dexy Wexy Dude,
I do exactly the same thing when mom gives me scritches on the hippies. I always give her kisses. But that on the back thing? I refuse to do that. No way!


P.S. My secret code word is "spermst" hmmmmmmm.

Niamh said...

Looks like you had a great walk! I hope that Rick isn't stealing all your leaves. I love to run through leaf piles. Have fun.

Your friend,

Eric said...

Dexter dude, you old softy boy. Mom was all cooochy coo isn't he a cutie pie? Don't tell the Mango...

Wiry loves and kisses Eric xxxx

Maggie and Mitch said...

We loved your video, Dexter! It's nice to see you getting some lovin' and scritches from your mom!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

The Thundering Herd said...

Woo, Dex, nice bloggie look - very clean. And great attention you are getting.

Minnie-Moo (Rescue Lab) said...

Dexter, you look so handsome! Weren't you tempted to jump onto that big pile of leaves and ruffle them all up again? That would have been fun :-))


p.s. thank you for your lovely post on my blog :-)

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Our momma is wondering how you like the no pull harness because she is thinking about getting a couple so she can walk both of us at once. Momma tore her rotator cuff so she has to be furry carefuls with her right arm.

Benny and Lily said...

What a great story from your walk. People are weird. Maybe Mr. Rick was going to play with those leaves or something. It was nice of you to keep an eye out for any more falling leaves

chicamom85 said...

Dexter, time with Mommy is the best. I like to licky her hand also when she is petting me. You are a handsome dude.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Mack said...

Dexter, you sure are loving the scritches! I just hope Mango isn't too jellyish when he wakes up from his coma and sees this video!

Joe Stains said...

Herding leaves?? What is wrong with humans, really? I sure hope the Mango got some love when he came to.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Dexter you are pretty sneaky to slip out without Mango knowing. Looks like you and mom had a great time.. One always needs a Mom day with lots of pats and scratches..
Mango you must have missed the Pest.. She was the center picture.

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Petey said...

Hey Dexter!

No worries, I saw Mango today on my way to the dog run. He was with some lady in the Meatpacking District (figures, huh?) and I barked hello to him but he just lumbered on by. I think he must have gone to some fancy schmancy Madison Avenue hair salon - he does have that bee costume so maybe he went to Bumble & Bumble - because he'd lightened his hair a bit to a nice honey blonde.

So relax, he's here in the Big Apple!

Your pal,


CJ/Rick said...

What a sweetheart. I like the banner picture too.

JRT Chick said...

Haha! Nice video Dexter. You're quite the ham bone. Looks like you had a fun day in the leaves. Today Skyler and I went pumpkin picking. Check it out!

ocmist said...

Goodness... you must have had quite a storm to tear down that branch of that big tree! Looks like you had a blast on your walk though! BG

Anonymous said...

Love all the pics!! Extra loving is always a good thing!

Peanut said...

That poor poor tree

Two Country Poodles said...

Yo Mango wake up .... Have you seen what this labradude has done...turned your blog page white and clickables pink.
