Four Unrelated Items by Dexter


1) The robins rebuilt their condominium on our front porch and are already working on their next set of chicks. They are the Duggar Family of birds I think.




2) Did I say underbite? I meant overbite. Over, under, whatever, still means my jaws are less than perfect. In fact when I was a pup I had to have my baby teeth extracted because the lowers were scraping the roof of my mouth, but my grown up teeth are fine and I have no worries in that regard.


3) Rabbits - self explanatory movie here.

4) HOT! Too hot to do much of anything except try and stay clear of the direct rays and wait for stingy momma to turn on the AC.



Dexter done!

Well, your mouth looks pawfect to me, Dexter. Nice try on the rabbit, btw. And just what is with the birdies this season? Everyone appears to be working on a second round here, too. Well, that just means more to chase, I guess.

Oh, could you tell Mango that Shar Pei come in three different coat types and the fuzzy one is called a bear coat? Then there's the horse coat, which is quite harsh. I am a brush coat, which is in between and just right. I know Hero is brush coat and I think that Bolo is too. Thank you for delivering the message.

wags, Lola

Poor Dex--dental problems are no fun. Glad your teeth are fine now.

Hot and it's supposed to stay hot all weekend! Oh well, I like it because it's been cool for a long time. Time we had some cookin' weather!

Did you mom clap for you and tell you what a grrrreat job you did?? Did she give you an nice flavor ice afterwards??? My mom always does that stuff after I finish.

Pibble said...

Those eggs are beautiful. Keep your paws off of them, okay? And stay cool! :)

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Oooh, Robin eggs? Look like Easter eggs to me!
Are you wearing bibs in your header photo? A monogrammed bib, how stylish!
Cheers!

Sam said...

More often then not, the AC here isn't on, either. Stingy Dad.

Thank you for those four unrelated items, Dex!

Sam and Pippen said...

That movie was most exciting, Dexter! Better luck next time...

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

Thanks for the clarification on the overbite/underbite--I'm glad the problem worked itself out. They haven't invented braces for dogs yet...sounds like an untapped niche market.

I'm a stingy mom regarding AC, too. We only turn ours on about two days out of the summer. Maybe this year, we can lower our energy footprint by 50% and only use it once! Seriously!

3 doxies said...

You is more than welcome to come to my house cuz we haves our AC on...wells, mum turns it on when Mr. Dad leaves fur work...hehehe! It's so HOT and HUMID heres that you can't breath when you out.
Ooooo...oooooo...I just loves that video of you trying reals hard to gets that bunny...he looks awfully dee-lish. If you happens to evers comes across some badgers coulds you send them my ways? Ok, thanks
Puddles

PEES:as long as you can eats and your teefies don't bothers you then who cares what kind of bite you has...well, da bunny might care.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Hot? You think it's hot?

Well. You said it first. "Stingy momma." So we'll follow suit. (Shhhh! We don't want her to hear us!) STINGY GRAMMA!

Sweltering,
Jake and Fergs (and Moma)

Pee esS. We love our gramma. We just wish she understood our temperature sensitivity ....

(Shhhhh.)

Stella said...

This is a no A/C house! A couple of fans run part of the day and we manage just fine. Of course Minniesnowda is not exactly tropical either . . .

Kisses,
Stella

Nuthatch... said...

No A/C here either and we specialize in muggy heat :( OUr birds seem to be having a fun year as well. Something in the air?

houndstooth said...

I am so thankful for a/c! It's blowing right now! I feel for you, labradude!

I guess they don't make braces for dogs! Probably a good thing!

I see we share the same feelings on rabbits! One day our back yard will be fenced in and those rabbits will feel my wrath!

Bunny

Jake of Florida said...

Come live here!!! We have our A/C on 24/7, 365 days a year 'cause our Mom is more wimpy than stingy!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Lorenza said...

Hi, Dexter!
I love the color of those eggs!
As long as your jaws work... don't worry if they are not perfect!
The nerve of that rabbit!
Happy Saturday!
Kisses and hugs

The Thundering Herd said...

It is ok, Dex. Our humans are still laughing that we walked right past one last night and never saw it. The humans bet he left a pile of rabbit pellets, though.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan said...

We would be delighted to send some of our cool air over to you, Dexter!

Woofs,
Tommy

mayziegal said...

It's hot here, too, Dexter. But we just got one of those cold boxes for the first time this year and mom is so in luvs with it that we're not the least bit hot in the house. We'll see what happens when the electric people lets her how know how many green papers they want.

Oh, and great job on the rabbit. I can't believes how cheeky he was to be trespassing on YOUR yard!

Wiggles & Wags,
Mayzie

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We could not live without the cold box being on - way too hot and humid here. Hope Momma relented and turned it on.

Dexter, you were so close - that rabbit got lucky this time.

Hope it cools down soon for you.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

the booker man said...

*woof*

Maggie and Mitch said...

Nice job chasing Mr. Hippity Hoppity out of your yard, Dexter!
We loved the instant replays on your video!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Peppy Sheppys said...

The only dog to catch a rabbit in our house was Wally so it is not the pep in your step but the brains in your noggin that will help.

Of course, he let it go without hurting it so he wasn't THAT smart.

Sheps w/Pep

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Ahh, stream of consciousness ...

HoundDogMom said...

Oh Dexter, we feel your pain as well. Our Dad says that our Mom is so tight (cheap) that she squeaks. We don't have AC either, so we all fight over the fans. Hardwood floors help, some but you have to keep moving when the spot gets warm. Maybe she should fill the pool for you. :)

Ms. ~K said...

Whew, bet that bunny could feel your hot dog breath...or is it hotdog breath?
Hmmmm!
Licks and sniffs,
Zack, Sassy and Buddy

Haha glad Duchess isn't the only one pouting about the heat!

The Army of Four said...

I think you're very handsome. And I love your hiding place from the heat!
Love,

1000 Goldens said...

Dexter, your bunny bounce is very cute!

Dewey Dewster said...

Yeah....we know all about bein' stingy and no air.....it finally got ta everyone taday...the heat that us...and finally the air is on....we're enjoyin' it.....Awwwww

Dewey Dewster here.....

twobarkingdogs said...

Dexter - you need to find a fan and park yourself in front of it! Stay cool.

Ina in Alaska said...

We have nice fresh cool air most days here so you would be quite content and enjoy a very unstuffy atmosphere, Dexter!

Those robins are surely Diligent Duggars! We want you to know that we can see your header picture again, that is great.... and finally Happy Father's Day to the Mango and Dexter Dad!

hero said...

Better luck next time with the rabbit, Dexter... thank dog for A/C in this hot summer days.

Licks, hero

Mack said...

Boy,
those birdies sure are fertile!

And if I saw a bunny, I honestly don't know what I would do!

Rebecca and Daisy Mae said...

My Momma waited until June to turn on the AC. It would be 85 degrees in the house and she would say, "NOT UNTIL JUNE 1ST!" Hopefully it's not that hot. Lay on the wood floor all spread out so your tummy is on the floor. It helps!
Daisy Mae

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Mango it's ok. Under/Over Callie has one of those too. She manages just fine also...
Dexter next time you will get the rabbit...
Mom turn on the A/C already. You furry friends are burning up....

Honey the Great Dane said...

Wow - I never realised robin eggs really were THAT blue in real life!!

Tucker said...

No air conditioning - the horror! You can come stay with me, I's gots air conditioning.

woof - Tucker

Kari in WeHo said...

you do not look happy about that heat!

twinkietinydog said...

Poor Dexter, I empathize. As if I didn't have enough health issues earlier in life, I had a mouthful of teeth, like a shark.
Twink!

Oskar said...

The heat has been relentless!

ocmist said...

We loved the Rabbit video, except you MISSED! We all barked along with you, though, except Mercy, who just sighed really big. (Buddy, I think she’s got a teenage crush on you!) BG
