Dexter Playtime without Mango!

I was just starting my walk today when who should we run in to but my next door neighbor dog, Winnie. Oh boy! But wait, it gets better.

Because momma said, "Let's let Winnie and Dex run around in the yard. Mango is already locked up in the house." Are you serious? Let's go!

I made a little movie that you can watch below or on YouTube here.




She sure is fast. She came from the doggie orphanage last year to live next door and I have long been a big admirer of hers.

You can see that she is part border collie dog and I think she was even trying to herd me a little. Who cares? I was having the time of my life.

After we got all hot, I introduced her to my swimming pool for a cool down.

She was a bit cautious at first seeing as she is swimming pool deprived at her estate.



But before long she had all four feet in and was enjoying a refreshing drink.




I even got her to experiment with full body submersion. Bet her mom squealed with delight when she brought her soaking wet self home.






It is HOT HOT HOT here today. After Winnie went back home I took full advantage of the pool to soak my labraself.

Does it get any better?






Dexter done!

P.S. There is another update on our foster house blog. You can read it here.

Playing with a friend is much more fun than walking with a bean. although I do hope you get a walk, too. DOG knows the beans need all the excersize they can get!

Mango will enjoy smelling Winnie's visit, I am sure.

gotta go check out the foster house!

Dex,

Your estate grounds are huge! I'm gonna suggest to my mom that she get Marley a pool like that. He's already panting like it's a hundred degrees outside when it's still in the 40's!

You can get soaked just walking out the door at our house. It's been raining for days. It looks like you two had a fun time.

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Oh, she's quite a girl, Dex! That bit of Border Collie is hard to resist. I could tell you stories...but better to let the past stay in the past. You both seemed to have just the best time and that's the main thing.

Hey Dexter! Will ya do us a favor? Tell Mango thanks, for us, for dropping by Fergi's blog and wishing her the happiest of birthdays. She was flattered by his compliments, believing his massive self leaves the biggest of kind words.

Now. About that swimming pool. We're feeling a bit deprived, ourselves. Of hot weather. And of a private pool. Maybe someday. If we're patient. In the meantime, we're gonna bring Moma back here to see yours. It might be a idea maker.

Happy week, you two.

Michelle said...

Ooohhh.....Dexter, Winnie is awfully cute! Think there might be love in the air? You'd make a cute couple!!

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

Seeing dogs run together like that is just the happiest thing. So jealous of your huge yard! Ours is about 1/50 of yours--but I think we have the same blue plastic pool at least!

Channon said...

Thanks for reminding me to drag out the fur-girls' pool and fill it for this run of hot days...

Oskar said...

What fun to play with your friend and introduce her to you pool!

I bet Mango was't too happy to be excluded!

Poor Mango! Locked inside. And drooling for a mastiff babe of his own to cavort with.

Dex, we're happy for you that you have such an energetic new neighbor to play with. We see lots of zoomies in your future. And we're sure Winnie's mom won't mind the wet dog a bit when she sees how happy Winnie is to have gotten to play with you. When the cement pond at the other neighbors' opens up for the season, maybe you can teach her how to really swim.

lillij said...

You are having a great time. That looks like so much fun! It IS great to have a friend to play with.
Wish we could play together. I'm small, but I'm fast too!

Your Pal,

Come by and see me sometimes. :)

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

So are you teaching her to dance??? Mumsie has visions of us dancing to Flashdance...that movie was filmed in da Burgh, ya know...can't you just see us with little eighties leg warmers?

Are you guys coming to the Royal Wedding????

Gotta go check the foster house blog....

Kisses,

ros said...

Wow that looks like a fun play date. What a great new fur friend. Well done showing her the art of the swimming pool. We hope you get another play date with her soon. From Angus and Milo

Ludo van Doggy said...

Way to go Dexter, that some impressive playing!

Amber-Mae said...

OH that girl is an energizer bunny! Bet you two had a fun date together.

Stanley said...

Hey Labradude!

Thank Mango for the video footage - he's an amazing filmographer.

Personally, as much as I like to hog my pool when I get my cool on, I have to admit it's more of a pool party with a friend or 2. Enjoy, man!

Goober love & smooches to my Mango bud, the labradude, and your mama,
Stanley

Lois Lane/Laney said...

It's warm enough to jump in the pool?! You sure are lucky!.. not about the getting wet thing, but the warm weather.

Marjie said...

We finally got hot weather today, but I don't do swimming. My brother is starting some big fixes on the estate, finishing another section of the roof, then fixing a dormer. Oh, and something about rebuilding a retaining wall and shutters. Whatever. He brings me snacks.

Drools,

Pee Ess: The Wicked Witch makes sure I get plenty of foodables. She just gets fussy about noses on the table. Even says she'd stop Ryan from putting his nose on the table. Mommas are weird.

mayziegal said...

Whoa! Winnie can really fly! And she's so pretty. I think you might have a teensy little crush on her, Dexter. Heehee!

Wiggles & WAgs,

DexterDude, I hope Momma keeps an eye on you and that fast-moving chica, Winnie! She's quite lovely!

KB said...

What a blast. You two look so fast, zooming all around the yard. I bet that Winnie's humans were thrilled with the whole body immersion part of it!

Love the header photo!
