Dexter Day - Paw it Forward Pressies

First I need to tell you about a big oops at agilities yesterday.

We were practicing front and back crosses which I think are really dumb. I mean, the jumps and tunnels are set up in a nice line so what is up with all the zigging and zagging that you are supposed to do?

I decided that I wanted to run the course my own way and by the end of the class I was pretty miffed at momma with all her "Here! Here!" and having to repeat perfectly good straight runs and so I kind of pee'd on one of the tunnels to show her what I thought of the course.

Oops. Got a big time out in jail for that one.

So on a happier note, I was pleased that it was finally time to open the Paw it Forward package which we received from Moose.

Of course the Relentlessly Huge tried to get first dibs.

I at least took the time to read the card.

It had a nice photo of Moose who is an actual labradog like me!

And lots of yummers foodables. Plus another one of those intellectual stimulation food dispensers. Gosh, that's the second one I've received in two weeks, is somebody trying to tell me something?

Of course the best present of all was an actual MOOSE!

All for ME! Right?

Well, maybe not as you can see from this movie which shows how annoying the RH can be. I mean, he doesn't even really want to play, just wants to have what is mine.

I thought we might clear the air by sampling some of the foodables.

Look at the RH! I think he forgot how to chew.

Not me! Yummy!

Well, it was all just too much excitement for the absurd beast and I was able to collect the moose and retreat to the safety of the dog cave.

Look! He is too exhausted to even try and get it back. Fine with me. More fun for Dexter!

Thank you Moose!

Now we have to paw it forward. The first three doggies that leave comments that they would like to play will get pressies from me and the RH just for YOU! So let us know, OK?

Dexter done!

PL2 is still talking about her visit to your estate and how cute you both were.......We told her...DUH... yeah we know that..... Love A+A

Hoover said...

Hey Dexter,

Cool stuff you gots. I guess I'm too late to play. I'd been faster if my human wasn't yelling at the glowing box playing footsball. I think the Paw it Forward is very cool.

Please be nice to your big brother. I'm dog sitting my old cousin, and Mommy says she is "not doing well," so I have learned it is best to always be nice because you never when they won't be there.

Martha Basset said...

Hi Dexter, we agree the Moose from Moose was brilliant!
Enjoy your pressies and treats and of course remember to share with Mango!
love and kisses

Well, it's nice that Dexter got a package, but Thor would like to remind him that a proper sized doggie with large jaws does not need to chew those smaller cookies. And we are pleased to see that Mango and Dexter are staying inside, away from that evil white 4-letter-word.

Drools and Snorks,

Whatever would woo do if a P-I-F was ME in a box?

Nice stuff Moose sent woow!

PeeEssWoo: We didn't do this week's walking one yet MRH - Mom was bored with the rain yesterday and did that one - sometimes I just stare at the labradork and sometimes I bark at him - he is nice - fur two times I've broken out of my khonfinement I've ended up in his yard with his sisfur!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mango and Dexter!
Sounds like Dexter put in practise his own concept of agilities!
You got pawesome presents!
I have one of those balls that gives treats but I never get them! Hmmm....
Kisses and hugs

Duffy said...

Um, that was a pretty big oops at agilities. But I guess when enough is enough...
Great prezzies and nice of you to share. Didn't look to me like Mango slobbered too much on the moose.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Crap...we're like number 15, Hot Bod Peewee...oh well...

I have some obvservations...

First of all, did that moosie come destuffed? What is WITH these toy manufacturers makin' all of these FLAT TOYS...we can't kill 'em...and then our peeps don't get sick of sewing 'em and buy MORE the MAN U FACTUR ERS ARE hackin' off their noseies to spite their to speak...

As for the INTELLECTUAL STIMULATION toy...we have that keeps Scruffy entertained for hours, but he has NO INTELLECT...we gave one to Stan, ONCE. He promptly BIT IT IN HALF. That's the Dale solution...he did get the foodables out.

Now Dexter (I'm callin' ya by ur formal name here...) YOU NEED TO STAND UP TO THE MANGO...enuff of this slinkin' around being SUB SERV I ENT to him....ur gonna get a complex...

I think I've run outta capital letters in this comment...

Kisses...and get some hay for that barn, kay?


Gus said...

Lovely pressies. My muzzer hoards pressies. Does yours do that too?


The Army of Four said...

Way to express yourself!
cool pressies - have fun!
Play bows,

achieve1dream said...

LOL Mango. I bet you looked goofy as a pup too. :) Chrome will grow out of it. It'll just take a lot longer than it took you. Hehehehe.

The Thundering Herd said...

The old famous pretend you like one toy to be able to get your paws on the one you really want. Well played, Dexter, well played.

Mack said...

Is Mr. Moose destuffed yet?

dewdana said...

Dexter you are brilliant! Way to own agilities by peeing on things! hilarious!
Glad you liked the Moose! It was one of Moose's favorite stuffies. He dismembered it after a few weeks which is longer than most will last so I guess the multiple squeekers and honkers distracted him. Tell RH the intellectual stimulations might be too much for him so you should have the kibble ball all to yourself! Moose likes it even when it is empty but it is way more fun full of treats too!
If you have too many pups wanting to PIF with you tell them to visit Darwin because I think she is still looking for pals to PIF to!

1000 Goldens said...

Dexter, we love the look on your face when you received the pet moose :o)


Mango I was a bit distained by your outraged filled comment. So I was pleased to see today's post. How fitting it was DEXTER day and that HE got a pressie from MOOSE. I mean really, like you could figure out that tricky ball. Good thing Dexter the intermediate level attention dog is there to help.

oh.. spy lady kept seeing dexter on his morning walkies. She said mom was dressed like an eskimo with a big hoodie.


tula said...

Hey Mango & Dexter

nice pressies.. drool.. cloud star yummers & the 'not so' tricky ball! duh roll it around and foodies come out. why is that mentally stimulating.. hoomans!

i was outside when it was snow-raining. confusing.


Oskar said...

What great pressies! I might do a paw it forward too!

ScrapsofMe said...

Nice pressies need to flash yer jaws of death at Mango when he gets near your toys. Seriously dude. Unleash a can of whoop @$$ on him!

hero said...

Hi Dexter,

It's snowing and you are doing agility outside... did your nose freeze up? Nice one on the pee thingy... though it may get you in trouble.

That's a lot of treats in the pressies... and toys too, this paw it forward is fantastic.

Licks, hero

Swampechaun said...

LOL! Dexter, you are too cute. I'm glad you got the moose back because it looked like y'all were snuggling really good together.

Deefor said...

I want to play but I'm too late. How do I get into this? Maybe I have to play-it-backwards. Is anyone doing that? I want presents too.

I was gonna do agility too but it doesn't sound that fun if you can't pee on stuff.


brooke said...

The peeing on the tunnel made me laugh out loud! hahaha.
Thanks for the invite for paw it forward, but we just played with moose! Good luck finding your 3 folks to play!

Awesome gifts!!! Love all the pics.

Tucker said...

Oooh, what nice gifts and yummy treats. I'm jealous.

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

Alas, far too slow on the paw it forward (it's all Mom's fault!). But great pressies - and I'm impressed at how you managed to wear out the RH. Very Clever!

*kissey face*

Hey Dexter, it's Star! Thanks for giving me that great idea about peeing on the tunnel. I had been expressing myself by jumping ON the tunnel, but that wasn't working out very well. Peeing sounds a lot easier.

Your friend, Star

Aniemother said...

Oh what great pressies! We love pay it furwards... We can pretend we're nr3 and that all the others are invisible.. Tee hee..


elbouwii said...

We love dexter :D
what nices gifts


Brownie said...

what great pressies! I have that orange ball as well, and I agree that mental stimulation is not all it's cracked up to be... i prefer the mental stimulation of chewing Momster's shoes or being asleep...

TwoSpecialWires said...

Dexter (this calls for your formal name). Those eyes of yours looked like they were gonna pop outta your sockets when you clenched down on that moose. Do you ever give Mango that look? We're guessing it demands respect. Or fear. But, now that we say that. We don't know exactly WHO might be fearful. On closer look, you look a bit concerned. Does the moose growl?

We'll think about this one... in the meantime enjoy your fabbers pressies and Paws Them On! Great idea!
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Dang Dexter that moosey toy is pretty cool, I can see why Mango wanted a turn.
