Daycare Misadventures

It appears that I got into a wee bit of trouble at daycare. It happened at the end of the day when Momma came to pick me up. I was super happy to see her and tell her about my adventures. That is me running down the rock to say hi.


Note air conditioning unit in foreground which will come into play later as well as six foot fence.







Where did I go? Hehehe. See my little tail sticking up behind the air conditioning thingie?









Wow! Was momma ever surprised to see my face reappear here.













And then my bottom! Yup! I levitated right up on to that stupid thing so that I could say hi.













Hi momma! I am ready to go home now.













What's that? I am not supposed to be up here? It is too close to the top of the fence? Well, why didn't you tell me.











Puggle Transport lady came and shoo'd me off. She said that she had only once before seen a doggie do that. Well, I am no average dog.


Squirt Bottle Lady was not please either because not only was the top of the fence just a short hop away from my perch, but she didn't want me giving other doggies ideas that they could jump up there too.











Sigh. Guess there will be a fence around it next time.


Of course once Puggle Transport lady turned her back I did it again. Watch this movie.


Warning! It is kind of loud because my daycare pals were all cheering me on.

This is me being handsome.





Dexter Done!

i think you are super smart for thinking to do that!

Niamh said...

Oh Dexter! Your are always finding ways to get in trouble, just like Ambrose. Hope you haven't started your pals thinking about the Great Escape.

Your friend,
Niamh

SGR said...

Woof! Woof! You're such too smart. Did not know you go to doggy daycare?? Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

mayziegal said...

Well, that just looks like part of your agilitys equipment, I bet. I can't believes other doggies don't get up there. You're WAY smart, Dexter. And looking at that last picture, it's true - you're WAY Most Handsome, too.

Wiggles & Wags,
Mayzie

These people clearly have no sense of adventure, Dexter!

That IS a handsome shot of you!

Woofs,
Tommy

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

Dexter you are indeed a handsome chap and smart too.

Martine said...

We are very surprised Dexter, that you are only the second doggie to hop on that box! What do they expect... it's like dangling a carrot in front of a horsey.

Busby and Raymond said...

JAIL BREAK! We think they should have put the air conditioner somewhere else. We loved the video, although the barking freaked us out a little bit. (hey, we're cats.)

TwoSpecialWires said...

Handsome and clever, PeeWee. That's you. Handsome and clever.

(I'd never had the nerve.)

Dexter, I think that means you are smart and athletic! Definitely at the top of your class!

The OP Pack said...

Hey, isn't that why you do agility - so you can learn to do hurdles over high barricades? If they don't want you to do that, then they should have thought about that when they installed the fence. We have utility box just inside our property line, but our humans were just too smart - they had the fence installed so the utility box is OUTSIDE our kingdom.

Great last photo of you, handsome Dex.

Nubbin' Tails said...

You go Dexter!

Wags!

Mr. Nubbin'

brooke said...

It's not your fault you were smart enough and talented enough to jump up there. They should've anticipated brilliant doggies such as yourself and blocked that thing up before.
Impressive!

Dog Foster Mom said...

What they said. And your mom is such a good blogger to keep taking pictures in the midst of it. It's become where correcting my dogs is secondary to getting a photo of them doing whatever it is they aren't supposed to be doing. After all, it's too funny not to share! :-)

Lola said...

Yes, I must agree. If they didn't want you jumping up on it, why was it there? And as far as it being near the top of the fence - well isn't that the point? Just between you and me, Dexter, sometimes I really have to wonder how humans got to be such a dominant species.

wags, Lola

Aniemother said...

Well done, Dexter!

Sue said...

I'm glad my pack didn't see that. Bailey would have been over the fence and out of there. Stay on the ground where you're nice and safe.

Frankie Furter said...

Holy Cat Crap Dexter... I am all out of breaths here. You scared the turkey turds out of me. When I saw that Snow Locker thingy there... I was afraid that your squirt bottle lady had come here and stolen all of the snow that I had stored in my snow locker. I guess there are other dawgs that think ahead and store the cool stuff up for Hot August. WHEW!
Sooooo buddy I guess you weren't supposed to be up on the snow locker thingy, huh? Was there a SIGH saying that rule, beclaws if there wasn't... you are totally INNOCENT of the whole affair. Sooooo I think... YOU should turn your peeshooter loose on that squirt bottle lady. I'm just sayin'.

Asta said...

Most impressive Dexter!

Clive and the NSLM

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Go Dexter,
You are most athletic. If you aren't supposed to be there, then why is it not roped off.
Sally Ann

the booker man said...

um, but dexter, you jumped up and promptly sat down! i think that means you were a good doggie! i'm totally confusled. :/
*woof*

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Well, what can one expect from an athlete like you, Dex, other than someone who doesn't see obstacles - but only sees challenges. Yes, kiddo, you certainly are handsome. We bet all the lady dogs gather 'round when you come to daycare!

Tucker said...

Hey why couldn't that dog walk and it had to be carried? I wish I could get myself carried everywhere...YOu are obviously the smartest one in school cause you figured how to jump on that thing. The hoomans are the stupid ones as the put the airconditioner INSIDE the fence. Dummies.

woof - Tucker

dewdana said...

The shortest distance between two points is a straight line... Where did momma think you would go when she stood there? I think she is guilty of contributing to the delinquency of a minor really! You are definitely no average dog and you are ridiculously handsome too.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Wow, Dexter - I can see that all that Agility practice you have been doing is REALLY coming in handy!! ;-)

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

Dory and the Mama said...

Uh oh....Be careful Dexter, we don't want you heading up a daycare break!

Smileys!
Dory

Schwang said...

Good to see you back Dexter. You must have a high IQ if they've only seen 1 other dog ever do that!

Marjie said...

Well, Dexter, the daycare ladies know the other doggies will look to the smart one - you - for how to do stuff! If they want a non jumping doggy, they should look to your brother.

Drools,
Thor

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

Oh...Stanley here...THERE IS AN EVIL BOTTLE LADY AT MY DAYCARE TOO...

They must be born with that stoopid squirty bottle stuck in their hand like that...

Course when Mumsie needs to spray my hot spots with anti itchy spray I think I'm in trouble...

Sheesch.

Ya know Dexter...if the fan is going really fast on that AC thing...you won't need your toenails trimmed for a while...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!

Dale snorts,

Babystan

Pee ess...

Scruffy's plannin' on spreadin' a rumor that Lacie has toenail fungus...unless she gives him her bones...

Sapphire said...

cheer cheer! some cool Scofield moves there.

Stella said...

Hey Peewee!

You are a very handsome pup and I am amazed at how fun it is to jump up on the a/c! I bet if it came on with a good rrrrr you could hop down real fast.

Kisses,
Stella

hero said...

I guess one can't keep agility away from Dexter, no matter where.

Licks, hero

dewdana said...

I came back to watch the video b/c I was reading on my phone before. He he- Sure looks like the place to be IMO Dexter. That was true levitating too. Once you were up there it still looked like you were gliding and levitating... kinda like a puck on an air hockey table ;-)
Obviously you and Moose went to the same school where they teach you if you are going to do something bad you should always look cute doing it!

Benny and Lily said...

We think you deserve a gold star for smartness
Benny & Lily

Toby- The dog with a blog said...

Very good Dexter!

doyle and mollie said...

woofing good on you dexter afterall those hoomans need to be keep on their toes and all you were really doing was demonstrating the flaws in their security they should give you a bone and make you in charge!!

Samantha said...

You deserve a medal for being the cleverest pup - I'm surprised that you didn't jump over the fence! Mom must be so proud of the fact that you are soooo glad to see her heheh! And that is one handsome picture of you at the end!
Hugs xo
Sammie

Lorenza said...

Dexter!
How you did that?? Sure you are very athletic!
Sorry the ladies did not think the same!
Kisses and hugs
Lorenza

Stella, Gunther and Betty said...

Well duh. Of course that silver stepping stool was placed there for your convenience so you could say hello to your mom. We can't understand why you would be squirted. People are so confusing.

Love,
Stella, Gunther and Betty

Wild Dingo said...

Dex, they so don't have enough agilities for your athletic self... doy. silly daycare doofus!

nice jumnp! way to stick that landing! i give it a 9.8!

Maggie and Mitch said...

We're not surprised, Dexter! You're always jumping on walls and stuff on your walkies. You are a most athletic boy!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

MONA AND MOMMY TOO!! said...

Boy Dexter, I am impressed and my goodness but you sure are growing into a handsome stud.

If I didn't have my Tiger, I'd have asked you to be my date for Date Nignt. Would you have said yes?

{{{huggies}}}....Mona

BRUTUS said...

Oh, I see. Now it makes sense why you call her the Puggle Transport lady (it clicked when we watched the video). After all that agilities training, how could they NOT expect you to jump on that A/C unit? Very handsome photo - mom should use that one for your next greeting card.

Snorts-
Brutus the Frenchie
pee ess - speaking of cards, I got my own CafePress shop for Flat Brutus! There's a link button on my bloggie, thought your momma might want to know since the Mango had one too!

Sallie said...

I think you could have made it. :)

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Levitation?!!!! You are one smart cookie, Dexter!!!

Woofs and Kisses!

The Thundering Herd said...

But you stopped. We Sibes, well, let's say the next frame of the video would have been a Sibe crashing into the camera.

Life With Dogs said...

Leave it to you to find a workaround! Why not, you're always working around the huge one. :)

Mack and Mia said...

It's SO OBVIOUS and SO CLEAR that only a labradude would think of something so cool and so neat to do!

DUUUUUUUUUUUUUH!

Wags and Woofs,
Mack and Mia

Randi said...

Aw Dexter! Your athletic abilities are limitless! & the spring in your step? well..makes me go all giddy like a young school girl!

You are most handsome in that last pose as well..

*SIGH*

Love & Licks,
Randi

Mr Koda MD said...

Brilliance at its finest!

Perhaps your daycare pals will stage a diversion next time to allow some more investigating from your perch!

Koda

JD and Max said...

Hiya Dexter - you're just too smart for them, that's all there is to it really. Cool moves! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

ocmist said...

My... You have filled out in the muscle area, haven't you! Hadn't noticed that before! You ARE getting to be fairly handsome, Dexter!

You are also a bit to smart for your own good. Glad they saw that stunt before you tried to jump out and hurt yourself or showed someone else how to do that! The CCC

Ina in Alaska said...

Our furry children always know when we arrive!!! xoxo

Nuthatch... said...

Don't let them stop you Dexter. It is important to stand out from the crowd - which is easy whe you're such a handsome and athletic labradude.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

You sure are intrepid, Dexter!

Hi Dexter, lovely to see you - looked like you were planning a break out!

Such good temperments!!
