Dexter Day - Neglected

I am now officially the most neglected labradude in the whole wide world.

We missed agilities today because Momma said she was just too tired! Tired from what? Spending all her time on the Relentlessly Huge's dumb show no doubt.

Not to mention I didn't even get to go on walkies.

I insisted that we at least play some tennis ball. I am an active guy who needs exercise, not some sloth like beast who sleeps 23 hrs / day.

Most of my playtime pictures came out like this. Can you believe it?

At least there was one acceptable photo.

Um, excuse me, I am trying to be as discrete as possible doing my business. I don't think this is the kind of action shot my fans are looking for.

Oh look who accidentally got out of bed.

Don't wear yourself out with too much actual movement, big guy.

Dexter done!

Hi Dex! Is that Mango slobber on your head??

houndstooth said...

Dexter, what is on your head? I'm glad you got at least a little play time out of your mom!


Ms. ~K said...

You poor neglected pup!
I see Mango is still using you as a handkerchief!

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Awww Dexter, that's just terrible. Glad that you did get to play ball though!

Woofs and Kisses!

Stella said...

Catch a Greyhound (the bus) and come and visit us in Minniesnowda. We have lots of snow and we can play all day long if you want to.


BRUTUS said...

Um.... you got something on your face there buddy. No a little to the left. No the other left. Right, no wait... Oh well. Sorry to hear you've not been neglected. Me too. Can you believe mom left me for hours yesterday to go stare a people's teeth? Sheesh!! What's a doggie to do???

Poor Dexter. Mango Minster is such a big event that you momma has to spend all her energy on it. I hope you will go to agility next week so you can have a picture of you training together for the photo contest.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Jennifer said...

Poor Dexter! You're still so adorable to me :)

Pop on over to my blog for my entry in Mango Minster 2010 :)

Hi Dexter,
What a great shot of you catching the ball mid air!
You are a star. We are sorry you are feeling neglected. We are shocked you have not been to your agilities or for your walk.
If you want us to contact the authorities just give us the bark.
Goodness anydog can see how neglected you are.
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xxxx

Hey, Mango and Dexter! Long time, no post. This is Frankie Furter's cousin Sarge. Great movie! I never played with ice in the winter...sometimes Mom gives me cubies in my water in the hot summer and I do like those. I'll have to ask for some now and give it a try. Happy Birthday, Dexter! We didn't forget you. Watch out for that'll end up getting a bath.

Grrr and Woof,

Ina in Alaska said...

Dexter love your head accessory!! You are such a cute little Lab!! Hope someone gets you out on a walkie soon! Love, Toby, Ginger, Jeter and Halle (as described to their Mom, Ina) Our word verification is appropriate to your head accessory: OXAGOOL

Jazzi said...

So sorry about being neglected there Dexter. It happens to all of us frmo time to time. Least you got to play some ball.
Hey! I love the picture of you catching the ball, really shows your abilities and your manliness!!! Whoa whoa!

Mom shold make up time with you when the contest is all over!!


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

This saddens me! Although I, too, have been neglected as of late, what with all this "puppy" talk and Mom and Dad sliding around on skis and stuff. If you want, I could send AirFiona to pick you up, and we could be neglected together. I've got a bunch of toys, I know where Mom stores the treats, and I think we've (barely) got more snow than you. Just holler, and AirFiona will be on its way!

*kissey face*

Kari in WeHo said...

oh you poor neglected pup. Was this a scheduled post as well?

Sam said...

Missing agility it just about the worst thing I can think of!! At least you got to play ball, though.

Clive said...

Oh Dexter, life can feel very unfair sometimes! But looks like you did get a little play in!

take care

kissa-bull said...

oh dexter you wanna come to the pittie palace , we love to play ball around here though we dont have any of the white fluffys stuff but we have nice rays of sunshine.

Eric said...

Really unfair Dexter having to throw the ball and catch it yourself. Even if you are a superstar at it. Then the final insult must of been Mango gobbing on your bonce.I pity you dude. I really do.

Wiry love Eric xx

Twinkietinydog said...

Poor baby! I'm inviting you to move in with us until Mango's Minster's officially over. I don't even have to ask the katz. Mi casa es su casa.

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Your Mommy loves you very much. Sometimes older/bigger doggies need to rest a bit more. Mango adores and loves you, and your Mommy loves and adores more than any other labradude in all the world.

Chloe and Libby said...

Dexter, you could always come play with us, but we sleep alot too.

Frankie Furter said...

Poor Dexter. Pee on something... or someone... inappropriate. That'll get you some attention!!!

Heather and Pumpkin said...

I am learning how to fetch a ball, just in case I get a movie role where I have to play a real dog. Seeing your informative photos is very helpful Dexter.


Maggie and Mitch said...

OOPS! It looks like Mango has been slobbering all over you, Dexter!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Byron said...

Poor Dexter, did that Mango slobber on your head.
Come and visit me pal, we could play all day, and I promise not to slobber on you.

Lots a licks,

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Hey Dexter ... in the header picture ... is that ... hair gel?

Mack said...

What is wrong with these moms lately!??
Mine has been coming in from work and grabbing dindins and going right to bed.
I feel your pain Dex.

Benny and Lily said...

Oh Dexter you poor poor baby. We feel so sorry for you. I would get into some mischief if I were you. Its a good way to get attention

Pee-Wee, you are so patient with Momma (not to mention RH slobbering on your handsome head). You're a good boy...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Dexter!
Be patient!
Your Mom is working very hard with the MM Show!
I know you can find something interesting to do! I know!
Kisses and hugs

The OP Pack said...

Hey Dexter, you might need to give Mom a break for a bit, she is working very hard on MM and it is no wonder she is exhausted. Maybe we can come over and play some zoomies with you in all that pretty snow.

Woos, TD and Phantom

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Dexter - I don't think you're that neglected! Your Momma is playing ball with you and taking pictures of you! And you're lucky to have such a big garden to play around in, even if you don't go for walkies!

The Army of Four said...

I don't see how anyone could neglect you, Dexter! You're so very handsome and fun!!!

Samantha said...

Ewww Dexter - what is on your nose? But love that shot of you catching that ball so (heheh) dextrously! Hope you get some pats for that! Great Catch!
Hugs xo

Dexter, you should not have to play alone.

Stella, Gunther & Betty said...

Oh poor Dex. Ya know we got plenty of room at our house and mom takes us to bark park at least twice a day for playtime. We only have those mini tennis balls, but I'm sure we could run to the store and get some bigger balls..

Stella, Gunther and Betty

hero said...

Hi Dexter,

You're really bored, aren't you... until slobbers get on top of your head... BOL. I love to see those contrasting pics of you against the white snow field... you really stood out I must say.

Licks, hero

tula said...

we (as in who have been slobbed!like my momma) need an award or bumpersticker or's furry tramatizing.

peace out- TULA


Hey man...
just call me.. i'll come over and play. that is ridiculous the RH dumb contest has taken over everyone's lives.

Wild Dingo said...

Dude, hand me the # to the local labradude abuse line. I'll phone in your complaint.

and as far as being from breeders, i think your mom scored. Wild Dingo intends to purchase from a breeder for a specific reason in a few years. But I'll always have a rescue or two as well.

The nice thing about our rescues is that they too came with a "if anything happens to you clause." just like breeders. would not want to spend all that time and money rescuing just to be found in behind bars again! sigh.

achieve1dream said...

Poor Dex! You should keep your mom up all night having zoomies and see how she feels. :D


Joe Stains said...

Sorry you are being neglected buddy, but Mango Minster is SO COOL!!
