Dog Dance Double Header by Dexter

I'm having a blast working on my dance routine! It just feels good to be ME and to be jumping and flying through the air. Momma says I need to curb my enthusiasm a bit, but I say, NO WAY! She needs to step up to the plate and work on HER moves.

Plus we spend FOREVER waiting around while she tries to remember how to use her dumb iPod.

I find her hand signals quite confusing. I am not sure this particular one actually meant "sit on your bottom and bend sideways" but I was willing to try.

When in doubt... JUMP! You can't go wrong and will get points for cuteness.

You want to hear something totally ridiculous? My brother, Mango, the Relentlessly Graceless is trying to do a doggie trio dance routine with Tula and Norwood.

I do feel kind of sorry for the big guy because the phenobarbital has made him relentlessly uncoordinated. He doesn't even know what his back end is doing half the time.

Watch this sad excuse for a dance rehearsal.

I believe my first place spot is not threatened by those three.

Hey DOH! Try putting the camera where Tula isn't behind a bush next time. Sheesh.

Look at these pictures I found on the flashy.

Duh... is there something caught in my lips?

OOOOOO! How embarrassing. In front of Tula, no less.

How about now? Yup, still there...

Hello? Anybody home?

Momma says I shouldn't make fun of Mango. OK, to be honest, I am kind of worried about him but you have to understand that getting yard debris caught in those ginormous jowls isn't anything new. Sometimes he even wipes his face on ME. Yuck.

Dexter done.

Nice moves, Dexter!

Schnauzer Days said...

Dexter, your enthusiasm does you proud, looking good friend! Enjoyed watching all the videos, Dex & Lou x

Amber-Mae said...

Gosh Dexter, you are full of energy! And that trio dance rehearsal video was kinda funny. HEE HEE! But I'm sure with a little more practice, those three would do awesome. It looks like a good routine. They just need to neaten up a bit.

Dis is just another example of why I is grateful I is NOT trained...hehehehe!


Gus said...

Um, OK...we admit we are jealous of Dexter Dude and his Dancing Diva, but we think the trio dance routine would be better if Mango SITS center stage and the other two march around him. Then Mango stands and takes a bow. Then the Mamas bow. Then Mango takes a nap.

Gussie can come and coach on the nap part.

Teka toy.

Reilly / Bree said...

Di someone give you bouncy juice Dexter ??? Definitely lots of enthusiasm - now if you could share some of that with Mango - poor guy - he does so look so tired!

Priscilla said...

Good job, Dexter! Keep the good work up, remember the old stale saying,'practice makes perfect'!

Jen said...

Oh Dex! The enthusiasm is fantastic!! Yeah for labradogs!! :)

Poor Mango does look a little tired and embarrased about debris caught on his lip. Poor boy!!

Hope you have a great week!

Jen and the black dog crew

jen said...

Hehe-Leroy had a leaf stuck in his slobber yesterday! He had no idea it was there and it was pretty amusing!

Frankie Furter said...

Well Dexter... this is just Jam Packed with grrrreat MOVES.

PeeS... I'm thinkin Mango and I are TWINS.. we both get stuffs stuck to us.

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Dexter, you get A+++ for enthusiasm and 5 stars for jumping ability.

I'm looking forward to the three (maybe) dancing dogs perfecting their routine.

Stella said...

Great dancing, Dexter! You'll hit the bigtime!

The trio? Uh, a little less interesting but they may just need more work.


Amber DaWeenie said...

You is doin' great, Dex. You is trainin' your Momma and teachin' hers all da right moves.

Maybe's da trip dance needs jus a little more work. But dos big feets of yours was never made for dancin, right, Mango!

The Army of Four said...

You've got great moves, Dex!!! Your mom needs to follow your lead!
Mango's trio... well... I liked the part where Norwood jumped on his human best! That was exciting!
Play bows,

Corbin said...

You've got some moves, kid!

Sue said...

Dexter, your dance has great enthusiasm. It's showing promise except that fall over backwards move. You might want to work on that.

The trio, how do we say this? It's a bit slow. Maybe you need some faster music. The judges might nod off during that routine.
Morgan, Tsar and the Porties

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Dexter, we love your exuberance while dancing! We bet it all comes together for the final product.

The trio - well, it was quite entertaining:) Norwood has the shaking and rolling down pretty well - lots of good roaching going on there. Mango might need a few sips of Red Bull to get going, and Tula - why are you hiding on us - we want to see that tushie wiggle.

Great job from all.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Bouncing Bertie said...

Yes Dexter, for once I think your confidence regarding the competition from the other three dogs is not misplaced...
Toodle pip!

Marjie said...

Dexter, he's just cleaning up the yard so you can enjoy it better. What a great brother Mango is.

You are quite the dancer, little guy!


CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Dexter, you are doing an pawsome job on your routine!!!

The pics of Mango with the leaf are hilarious!!! Go easy on big bro though!!! It's hard being so huge!

Tucker said...

Anonymous said...

Hey there Dex I thinks your doin a great job of dancing!

As for me I always get those darn dried leaves stuck on my tail. But I don't take no meds so I notice them.

Gots to give the BIG guy a break.

woo woos, Tessa

Kari in WeHo said...

I think your enthusiasm is what makes the routine :)


brooke said...

Mango as a prop!
And Mango down! ahahhaah
Fun videos!

The Boston Lady said...

Dexter your dance moves are stunning, but come on, you've got to give props to RH for the vocals in his rehearsal tape. Ann

Carol from Down Under said...

Oh what a great way to start my day. Dexter you should win just for the enthusiasm and as for Mango, Tula and Norwood I think best for a comedy routine. If neither of you win, maybe Momma and Mango could enter a singing contest together. You are all fab. Take care all, no worries, love Carol.

Laura, Lance, and Vito said...

I think Dexter misses agility :) Gotta love that enthusiasm for training!!!

I LOVE how comfortable Mango is with his buddies!!! And even on just a front clip harness! Yay Mango!

Anakin Man said...

Dexter totally cracks me up!! His enthusiasm is top notch!

Lorenza said...

Two types of acction movies, right?
Sure you have all the energy!
And then... a slow motion picture!
I hope Mango is feeling well!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

houndstooth said...

Dexter, you always make us laugh! I think you have a good shot at winning the contest, but I have a few Greyhound friends who are entering, and they've got moves, too. I think Mango might get an award for, um, effort!


Benny and Lily said...

Oh my word!! Mommais rolling laughing!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

We're impressed at the scope of your ambition! It appears the Mango is working on three separate routines: his solo, his group dance with Tula & Nordude, and his guest appearance in a Very Important Part in PeeWee's dance. No wonder the poor guy is tired!

Pea, your routine is full of vim & vigor; positively Cirque de Soleil in its acrobatic moves! Can't wait to see the final creation.

violett said...

Grandest videos. Super quality!
Dexter is so enthusiastic
Mango, you did not need this. You are the greatest, also without dancing!
Lots of love

Anonymous said...

Dexter you really are getting a good routine going! And you are very patient with your Momma's training. Keep at Dex. She'll get it eventually ;)

Mango, the singing in your dancing trio just sent the whole thing over the top. Definitely a crowd pleaser. Way to ad lib buddy! :D

Waggin at ya,

Lexi and Jasper the Danes said...

Lookin' good Dexter! You definitly have bundles of energy :)

Hehe I (Lexi) have a "if in doubt move", I roll onto my back ;) In our latest dancing blog, you can see me do it a few times while training ;)

Can't wait to see the finished product :)

Licks and lots of slobber,
Lexi and Jasper the Danes

road-dog-tales said...

From what we can see, your dance routine is coming along nicely! For some reason, we're having trouble viewing the video and it goes in stops and starts, which actually makes it even funnier, but slooooow. Still hoping for sequins!

Hope Mango got the leaves off his face before kissing his sweetie. Girls don't really like that :)

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Oh Dexter, take it easy on Mango. Even I get a leaf caught in my luxurious tail from time to time.


Honey the Great Dane said...

Whew, Dexter - I;m behind with bloggies and am only now just catching up with yours...I need to go and lie down after watching your dance!! :-) I think the judges will just be wowed by this blur and shake their heads and go, "Huh? Finished? Did you see that? No, did you? went so must have been awesome!" - hee! hee!

As for the Trio Routine- I think people were making some very rude comments!! I personally think it was a great effort for 3 doggies working together - you know, it's gets harder every time you add in another doggie! I mean, 3 HUMANs can barely coordinate themselves to do things in sync, never mind adding in doggies too! So I think you guys did great!

Er - I have to agree - I think Mango is collapsing from exhaustion from havign to take part in so many dance routines - I mean, the solo would be hard work enough without a group routine and acting as a prop in yours too, Dexter!
