Dexter Takes Charge

I have decided to take over this blog once and for all. That's right! From now on, this going to be all Dexter all the time! If you miss the Relentlessly Huge, you can just go visit him at Mango Minster because this is MY time! How about that?

So to start things off, I actually got to play tennis ball this morning after insisting that it is time for me to have FUN and making stern face at momma.

The RH tried to indicate that he was ready for some action as well. Doesn't he look almost life like in this photo?

Here is a short movie showing the highlights of my very invigorating playtime.

In fact, we played so long I actually got tired. Can you believe it? I had to take a break.

I followed up with a nice nommy bone. Nom, nom, nom.

So that's it. No more cry baby big bully momma's dog blogging here. I might not have time to post a lot and I might not have a lot to say, but Dexter is in the house! You know it!

Dexter done!

Well said Dexter! Every dog has his day and you are right to seize the moment!
We look forward to your posts.

You are the dog, not "the man." ha ha. You tell big Mango you are very important, and that you have a lot to say. He has his own blog, so you have one. But please also be nice to big Mango, he is a very gentle dog.

Pepper said...

Yay Dexter, you need to stand up for your rights in life, otherwise you'll just end up getting some big butt sitting on you slobbering everywhere.

Frankie Furter said...

Yep it was BOUND (that's a tennis ball playing term I think) to happen. It's the old Post... tutor/birthday thingy rearing its head.
You go for it big guy. I'll be waiting for your next installment. It should be most interesting. I'm just sayin'.

Stella, Gunther & Betty said...

Hey good on ya for takin' over Dex! It looks like the snow is finally melting in your labraplayground. Still though, it must have been cold when you laid down to take a break. Didn't your weenie freeze? Brrrr!


Nellie and Calvert said...


Wow! Things sure have changed since we've been away. Looks like you've got things under control. Ahem... well except for all that uncontrolable drool on your head and face...hehehe

We look forward to reading about your new adventures. Congrats the take-over; well done!

Oh Dexter, is Mumsie ever mad at you!! I called her over to the puter...Mumsie...come and look at this video of boneless Dexter twistin' and jumpin' in the she did...and the %$@&*& pasta just boiled all over the stove...her hbo words not mine...ya know, Dexter...I'm not sure I ever noticed how FLEXIBLE you are...loose-jointed...well, maybe that night in the barn when you were givin' me the tour...hmm...nuff said bout that...

Gonna go look at Mango Minster updates...our puter kept screwin' up and loosin' the internets...Bruvver put a new router on last nite...our network is now named after us...we're so flattered...yep, that will make bloggin' more runnin' all the way to the basiement to unplug and replug...sheesch...


Stella said...

Go for it, Peewee! You'd be a good blogger but first get rid of the picture in the header with the slime on your head. Not pretty!


The OP Pack said...

Wait till Mango sees this,Dexter!!! We think he might have a few words to paw about it.

Your yard looks a lot like ours, all that green trying to peek through. We still have some but we are losing the battle.

Enjoy that bone - it looks delicious.

I do love your videos! I say go for it! It's not like the Relentlessy Huge can catch you if he does try to get you over it. Seize the day, I say!


dewdana said...

Very effective stern face Dexter! Now that you are more than 2 years old you can't run around FOREVER without resting here and there anymore! You are a grownup now. :-)

Laura, Lance, and Vito said...

well it's about time!

hero said...

Finally, someone is showing who's boss around the house... just hope it remains this way though.

Licks, hero

Benny and Lily said...

Good job Dexter. Mango better be careful you don't run him out of the house!
Benny & Lily

Niamh said...

Please don't be giving Ambrose any ideas about taking over my blog. Upstart little brothers will need to be put in their place!!!

Your friend,

achieve1dream said...

Way to go Dexter! It's about time you took control and got yourself some attention while the RH is busy with his show.


Frankie Furter said...

Hey Dexter... I just turned in my Dawg Pile entry. Guess what??? One of the thingys that I used was... the unstuffie that you gave me.

Ms. ~K said...

Dexter, All we can say is, "It's about time!"
Us Labradudes gotta stick together!

Ashley (the mom), Dixie (the Catahoula) and sometimes Lola (the Pit Bull) said...

It looks like you had a most excellent day!
Lola says she thinks it is "most awesome" you took over Mango's blog, although I told her not to get any ideas.
Hugs and Tail Wags,
Dixie (and Lola)

Kasha The Dainty Great Dane said...

Hello Dexter...All I can say is WOW you made this old dane lady tired just watching you with all that running around...slow down and smell the snow dude!! Ha Roo!! I can't keep up with you...Mango's more my speed.

Life With Dogs said...

It's about time you took advantage of Mango's busy schedule. Looking very good in your new header pic! :)

Amber and Nala said...

Way to take charge need some recognition too! ;)


Twinkietinydog said...

OMD this is a mutiny! Between you and Frankie...tsk tsk tsk. You do realize Mango will be back. When he finds out you're planning a blog coup...trouble. Anyhow, I really enjoyed your video. Loved the fact that there was a hand to keep you company and stimulate you. I like you, Dexter, and that's why I'm giving you some advice.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Dexter!
Yes, this is your chance!
Sure you had lots of fun playing outside with the tennis ball!
I wonder what's your mom trying to do with Mango's tail!
Kisses and hugs

Moco said...

We are going to have to ponder this change.

Wild Dingo said...

Well, Dexter, I suppose congratulations are in order on finally getting the blog all for yourself. And I loved the video! It had so much action that I was on the edge of my seat through the whole movie! Great job!!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Are you sure Mango knows what you have done, Dexter?? Umm.. does Mango know yet?

Mack said...

Does the RH know about this, Dex? You may wanna plan a "vacation" when he reads this post...

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

God --i love you Dexter---your looks, your cuteness, your zest for life, your willingness to learn--and just for being who you are

BRUTUS said...

WTG Dexter!! Show 'em who's boss! We black dogs gotta stick together, no more living in the shadows (no that I did anyways, but I digress...). I just hope RH doesn't sit upon you when he's found out what you've done... (Ruh-roh). We'll be back soon to find out more :)

Way to go Dexter!

Tucker said...

Hey Dexter,
Your scary fast chasing the tennis ball. I don't play fetch when there are other doggies around cause I always lose.

woof - Tucker

Schwang said...

You are much more articulate than your brother makes you out to be.
