Terse Tuesday - Stupid Training

Snow, snow, snow, and more snow and wicked pissa cold and I have total and complete cabin fever. Idiot mom attempts to provide exercise by doing "training" in the dog cave but sometimes I am confounded by what she wants. Go over, go under, roll over, whatever, just give me the hot dogs. Listen to that cackling! Ish! And please try to make a video that is more flattering to my sleek and muscular labraself. This one is so grainy. Like a surveillance camera monitoring illicit acts.

Dexter done!

Not up to your momma's usual cinematography so I guess we won't be seeing any Oscar nominations for that film. But at least you got some hot dogs.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Oh Goodness, we know all about the cold weather and how to keep from going stir crazy in it. It involves very similar things! Poor Dexter, hope it lets up soon and you get to go out for a run! And, yes, at least you are getting some hot dogs out of the deal!

...then again, maybe Pea is the one that hurt The DOH bakhk -


Gus said...

Your Mom needs dogs the size of Me and Teka to work with in the dog cave! You guys are too tall!

nice job on getting the hot dog pieces anyway


Frankie Furter said...

Dexter buddy I am soooooooo sorry that you are suffering from cabinet fever. It is a terrible affliction fur sure.
Perhaps you could have your momma lay in the floor and you could WALK ON HER BACK. That would help her TONS. I'm just sayin.
Hey... when the Pizza Man arrives... send him DOWN HERE.. OK???

rottrover said...

And to think, Dex, you did all of that without PANTS!!

-Sorry you have to stay in your cabin...

achieve1dream said...

I get really excited like that too! I don't listen as well as you when I'm excited though. Mom says I lose my brain. :D Good job Dex.


Mimi and CC Cabana said...

Dex, you and your mom must be starting the next craze in dog activities--"leg-ility" or maybe "how to groom your dog with the back of your thighs"?

Anonymous said...

LOL! At least your mom sounded like she was having fun! Isn't that all that matters? Besides, judging by your high level of excitement, you weren't having too bad of a time either.

Sounds like someone got up on the wrong side of the doghouse this morning. Grab a nap and see if things don't look better.

We are still Most Disturbed by the Barbie Dream House look. But that's neither here nor there. I think you need a sibling with whom you can engage in regular bitey face sessions in the snow. I would be willing to rent Abby to you on most agreeable terms - possibly a rent-to-own sort of deal? Heehee. (Actually, I'd probably miss the little rat, but then maybe Mom would get me the little Yorkipoo she saw at the shelter the other day....) Hey, anything for hotdogs, right?!?

Take care of your Mom - she needs some low-energy lovings right now.

I have to start my canine good citizens training tonight... silly humans.

violett said...

I am not sorry you! Divided grief is half grief!
I must also make a lot in the house, everything only because of my small silly brother.
But I get no Hot Dogs!
Lots of love

OOh a hog dog sounds good right nows... 'da Josie droolin'...

Dexter.. yous got some great jumpin' skills..

Ludo van Doggy said...

You look like a big labradork version of me when I get too excited to listen. heh!

Oskar said...

There is a lot of jumping!

OMD, we just love watching your Mom walk on her knees:)

Hmmmm, we think we need to tell Mango that Momma didn't hurt her back making a snowmanperson at all - he needs to see this video!

Amazing stuff!

Hope the snow clears soon and you get back outside!

Now that is cold! I don't know how you do it, Dex!


Maggie Mae said...


You sure looks like you is havin' fun!

Woofs and Licks,

Lorenza said...

It was an interesting dark video!
I loved watching you doing the tricks!
I hope your mom is feeling better!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Woo, you should change your name to Jack, so you be Jumping Jack. BOL.

Holly and Khady said...

I think your human woman just needs something to entertain herself, not you!

Snow is always a perfect play mate!


Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Looks to us like Mango Momma is burning the candle at both ends. Assisting the RH with Mango Minster, assisting Dex with his blogging, trying to keep TWO housebound doggies from going stir crazy, shoveling snow, plus all her normal activities! Mama feels a need to go lie down.

Dex, we think you should get extra treats for being so Dexter On the Spot about trying to anticipate anything your momma could possibly be asking you to do, and just doing it all really fast. Extra points for making momma laugh.

Jed & Abby

Aniemother said...

BOL! You look as over enthusiastic for the treat as I do.


BRUTUS said...

We feel for you! Same scenario here! Just lucky that we bowling-ball shaped doggies can do our agilities in the basement!!

You look to be having lots of furry fun :)
And we just love the movie!

Way to go Dexter.

Oh Dear Dex!
it does appear that you have severe cabin fever!
You are a very brave doggie and we sure you will make it through with your sanity intact :)
your pal,

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

Why in the world does she not attach snow shovels to you, RH, judges and guests to clear the driveway, sidewalks, deck and make proper potty paths in the yardie? That would give you all enuff exercises, mentals and physicals, and Momma could just relax on the sofa and eat Whoopie Pies.

Honestly, Dexter...as for that video quality, I agree it does look like the camera was planted there. You might want to talk to some of the guests...I'm just sayin'...

Hey, I don't think that Mango could do those tricks. Only your sleek Labraself could go under and over.

We understand about the cabin fever - we get it when one of us is sick or hurt, and then the poor labs have to learn all sorts of new tricks. They agree with you - just give them the hotdogs, please!

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

We see you will do anything for hot dogs! Disco is on a diet and everytime Teri gets up from the computer, he runs down the hall and stairs hoping for a snack...Teri said all he has to do is do that about 12 more reps and he will have had his exercise for the day, hahameow!

ocmist said...

The camera work really suffers in a dark house. Grammy still tries it every once in a while, but it always comes out grainy. We STILL haven't had any snow around here. Could you ship us some? The CCC

Deborah said...

OMD, that was awesome! Good job with your over/under/around....I should try to train smokes like that!!
