Dexter Day - Special Birthday Edition

Today is my 2nd birthday and momma completely forgot! I mean it! She is so busy helping you know who with his dumb Mango Minster that I might as well not exist (she even got up early today to post a new entry there).

Plus she blamed ME for her not getting anything done over vacation and has been all busy making doing pointless tasks like putting away the holiday decorations, washing slobbers off the curtains, and cleaning her hair brushes (WTF? Yeah, pulling the hairs out one by one from her hair brushes as if that really qualifies as anything other than feigning activity while using your brains up thinking about that dumb dog show).

I didn't even get a party, but had to make my own amusements by attempting to engage the Relentlessly Immobile in actual movement.

Hello? Anybody home?

What fun is that? She wanted me to post this movie and pretend that it happened today when any fool on YouTube can see that it was posted FIVE DAYS AGO when the torpid beast was still giddy from the snow.

Besides, that game we allegedly played was BORING! Right?

Truth be told, Momma wrote this blog for me on Sunday and scheduled it to run on my birthday because she knew IN ADVANCE that she was going to ignore me.

Even my most pathetic look did NOTHING! Sob!

Dexter done!

P.S. My human brother's birthday was on Tuesday and she totally forgot about that too! What next?

P.P.S. Well, at least Miss Asta remembered and sent me this nice cake. Thank you so much. Maybe I should move to NYC where humans actually pay attention to their doggies.

My head is dizzy from that whirlwind of a chase!

Happy Barkday Pee Wee!

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

Happy Birthday!!! I'm sorry that your birthday falls right in all the MangoMinster craziness - it is sort of like having your birthday on Christmas day - you totally lose out. Maybe you could lobby to have a half-birthday celebration in 6 months? I'm just saying...

*kissey face*

Frankie Furter said...

Awwww Dexter, that just stinks like Cat Crap. Well, buddy I am going to wish you a big case of:
There bud. Now you can just forget about the fact that you were forgotten about. Hope it makes it a little easier for you. I'm just sayin'.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

Happy Birthday you sweetheart! I am sorry that your mom got busy and your birthday was a little overlooked, she is doing the best she can I bet, she loves your bunches so never forget that.
I'll tell you what! My birthday is this coming Friday and the mom and I have been working on a party at my place. I would consider it a great honor if you would come over and celebrate with me, I'll have special doggie food for you and favors to take home for you and all doggie friends. What do you say? Hope to see you there! Starts 8:am in the morning and goes to whenever we say it ends!!

brooke said...

Awwwwwwwwwww poor Dexter! Mango Minster is important, but to forget your birthday! ouch! im sure momma will make it up to you (and your human brother) in some way!
Happy 2nd Birthday Dexter!!!!

Petey said...

Brain freeze.

Musta been brain-freeze that prevented the DOH from remembering your birthday. Just think, in just 12 months, your age DOUBLED! What if that happened to DOH??? Phew - too much math.

I've been hanging with another labradude named Buddy who is a bit of a doofus, but a sweet guy.

Your pal,

Gee whiz Dexter, I'm sorry about everybody forgetting your birthday. That stinks.
Hey, come and play hide and seek with me, I can move way faster than your big brother.

Happy Birthday Dexter,
Licks and slobbers,

Stella said...

Hey PeeWee! Happy 2nd Birthday to you!

I am so sorry you were forgotten in the Mango Minster rush. Why not do this, get a new birthdate thats maybe in the spring or summer where you can have a big party outside. Lots of us who don't know our birthdate do that!

That would work and in the meantime you are a year older and WISER!


Kari in WeHo said...

Happy Birthday and bad mommy for forgetting

Jake of Florida said...

Dear Dexter,

Trust me, I understand your SIT u ation! As the younger brother of the Professor, and often called Doofus, even though that is an overused name that belongs to others, I feel for you. Humans sometimes forget their priorities and forget that younger brothers have feelings too.

So, let me try to make up for the lack of parental attention by sending you my very bestest birthday wishes!!! Happy Second Birthday!!!!!

Your pal in second brotherhood,

Just Harry

Martha and Bailey said...

Happy Birthday Dexter! We are sorry you are feeling left out - we love you!!!
Have a very nice birthday - being two is a very good age.
love and kisses

Dearest poor Dexter: Happy birthday. You're two! (I'm holding up two toes) I'll be happy to sing for you too, but I like you better. I think I'll stick to many wonderful wishes for the years to come. I love your pathetic look. I can't believe it didn't work!

Happy Belated Birthday Dexter!! Nice job on the backwards glance. That would work wonders on any dog Momma.

SGR said...

Woof! Woof! Mango. Happy Barkday Dexter. Have a Pawriffic Day. Mango ... left you a message in your contest blog (I think???). Just back from holiday break and still catching up with blog friends. Plan to participate on the contest so will email you later. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

PS: I guess I'm really lucky. My birthday is the same day as #1's so she can hardly forget it...

BRUTUS said...

Awww... Happy birthday Dexter! Sorry you are feeling neglected. Two is a big number, now you have to act all grown up, no more puppy excuses (I'll turn 2 in July, don't know what I'll do). Maybe they are all just waiting and going to throw you a big surprise party, belated-like??

Hopeful Snorts-

Happy Birthday Dexter. That's just wrong, forgetting and all. She should take you to the store and get you whatever you want. Even if it is really expensive.

Happy Birthday Dex. And that video was so fast paced, we had to watch it in slow motion to follow everything. Oh, wait, that was normal speed.

Gus said...

Happy Barkday Dexter. If you are really bummed, you can come here. We love labradudes.


Clive said...


We all wish you a very Happy Birthday! How could your birthday be overlooked! The NSLM feels for you because he knows how very important birthdays are! We are celebrating his Grandad's 83rd birhtday yesterday which was great fun!

We hope you get some nice treats at least!

take care and birthday wishes again from me and the NSLM!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Dexter! Happy Birthday!! I'm definitely not ignoring you! And anyway, I think it's good your human is organised enough to schedule when to ignore you coz my human wouldn't even be organised enough to do that!! :-) Anyway, I'm sure it's not true and everyone knows its your special day - maybe your Momma can offer to let you host a special event at Mango Minster as a sort of sop?

By the way, just to show that I definitely do think of you - just before we left NZ, I got my human to send another of those udder tug things specially to you so you wouldn't have to share with the RH...I was just wondering if you might have got it yet? There was also an "interesting NZ souvenir" for your Momma in the package...

The OP Pack said...

Happy Birthday, Dexter!!! We don't think Mom really forgot, we think she is secretly planning a big surprise birthday bash for you, right, Mom?

Marjie said...

Happy Birthday, Dexter. My momma always makes me an applesauce raisin cake with strange white stuff called "murr-ang" on it. Nom, Nom! One year she put a candle on it, but I didn't like that. I scolded her and she has not done that again.


The Airechicks said...

It's like Sixteen Candles - they forgot that chicks BD too......

Happy Birthday!!!!!!


Oskar said...

Happy birthday dear Dexter. I hope you get a real cake soon!

Inky and Molly said...

How could they not remember or be too busy with plucking hair out of a brush???


Ina in Alaska said...

Happy Birthday Sweet Little Dexter! We are sending lots of best wishes your way for a happy day. Loved your movie!! Cheers from, Toby, Ginger, Jeter, and Halle!!!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said... keepin' up with your family um...WE SORTA FORGOT we 'membered, then we forgot...sheesch...Scruffy, you coulda at least sent the poor boy a card....


As for that um movie...well, um,...let's just say it was THE SLOWEST THING WE'VE EVER WATCHED. Honestly, does Mango ever move faster than that?

And we thought for a while that you had a potty chair in your kitchen...but it must be someone's bowl on leggies??? Or Mango's too lazy to squat??

We're gonna go and lie by the fire...hope your barkday improves dear Dexter!!!!!


Word verificaion is like 12 sylables long tonight...sheesch

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

Pee ess..Mumsie did all of her brushes too and soaked 'em in a bucket with ammonia and shampoo...

WHAT IS WITH THEM??? This New Year's stuff is crap unless it's like:

I resolve to do scritchies to my dogs every day.

She hasn't washed any curtains cuz we don't have any...too lazy...Butchy's mom is gonna sew some for her...if she ever buys the fabric...sheesch

River said...

Happy birthday Dexter! You do look pitiful. Did you not get any presents at all?

Happy birthday Dexter. Big licks from me to make up for the terrible state of things at your house.

Happy birthday Dexter!!! Sorry your mean mommy ignored you on your birthday. My mom did that last year. My 2nd birthday is on the 30th so you aren't much older than I am. :)

Happy Birthday Dexter!
I know it was not funny that your mom forgot your big day but I am sure you found something interesting to do to celebrate!
Kisses and hugs

Wild Dingo said...

Two suggestions: maybe you can get her that STinko Balboa stuff to help her remember important dates. If that doesn't work, try the prong collar and correcting her.

wild dingo

ps. we got to meet 2 cousins of the Relentlessly Huge at school recently. They were yellow/off white color. One was in school/class, the other just visiting while his sibling was in school. L&J were fascinated by such large canine-ness. I was honored and got to walk him around. His name was Wallace and i walked him but he wouldn't sit for me. but he recalled nicely and heeled very nicely. and gave me tons of Relentlessly huge kisses on the face. I'm thinking my face musta been dirty or something cuz it sure was clean after that! I sure liked Wallace a lot. But I don't think he was nearly as handsome as Mango RH!

JD and Max said...

Hi Dexter - happy birthday! Oh, your human must have a heart of pure STONE for your most pathetic face not to work - we crumbled immediately! We suspect though that something is up their sleeve for you. Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Mack said...

This is even sadder than "Sixteen Candles"!
Mom says you can come over and she will fix a cake for you...


Hey Dex.. DOH is too busy with Mango Minster she forgot all about you. I think that calls for rewriting that list of resolutions. You can capitalize on this one... more days at camp hump alot... more walkies..2 dexter days on the bloggies... just some ideas.

hero said...

Happy Barkday to you, Dexter! And many more to come... not the forgetting ones though.

Licks, hero

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh we are so sorry that Mom forgot your Birthday Dexter. Maybe next year you need to leave a few hints, marking the calendar might help? Put a big sign on the HUGE.. he he
We are sure glad you decide to let Mango win. Gives the poor guy a sense of accomplishment...

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Big Mango, Yes Mom is busy!!!!!!

My Mother instilled a non-enter-er in me!! I will vote!
Love, Fern

Joe Stains said...

Happy Birthday dude, this is truly a travesty. Stupid humans.

Stella, Gunther & Betty said...

Oh no Dex! Your mom forgot your birthday? I would have lifted my leg on her side of the bed then blamed it on Mango...

Happy Birthday Labracooldude.

Lots of love Minnie-Moo and Muzzle

TwoSpecialWires said...

Dexter. Maybe you thought we forgot you, too. Maybe you didn't even think about us forgetting. Maybe you don't even remember who we are. But we didn't forget. And we do want to wish you a happy belated birthday. And just because we are late doesn't mean much of anything other than our moma and our Girl have had their priorities in different places. We DO wish you a happy birthday. We hope it was a very happy one. You deserve it. And you deserve a great celebration. We'll see if we can't manage a couple extra treats in your honor tomorrow. It'll be a new day. One when we HOPE to catch up a bit on life as we used to know it.

Happy Belated.
Jake and Fergs xxoo

Crikey, happy barkday Dexter mate. Hmmmm we're very late with our birthday wishes. I bet mama won't forget next year.

Samantha said...

Even MORE belated wishes for a Happy Bday Dexter! Sorry Mama forgot, but you are probably right about being consumed with that minster thing over there. I admire you for being able to entertain not only your cute self, but also Mango heheh! Good job and again, Happy Birthday!
Hugs xo

Brind'Amour said...

Happy Birthday Dexter!!!! I hope you got lots of pressies and cake!

Ciao amici!

Buon compleanno, Dexter! I am quite late sending these birthday felicitations your way but am still very sincere! I hope your mama made up for the forgetfulness with extra-special torta and gelato mmmmm torta and gelato in your favorite flavors!!

Tanti baci!

ocmist said...

We wished you a happy Birthday on the Mango Minster Blog, but didn't get over here until now. When we saw that pitiful picture of you, we thought we would all tell you again, that our wishes are with you for a good year. You are a very good pet... uh, brother...for our RH friend... OC
