After reading the Relentlessly Huge's adolescent post over the weekend regarding his photogenic qualities, I, Dexter, felt compelled to do a little keyword search of my own.

No surprise to discover that while my "cute" folder was chock full of labradorable photos, the RH's contained a scant few.


Heck, I garner a cuteness label just sitting around. Look at my face!

While the Relentlessly Dour has to resort to the old "give the paw" to find his way into cuteness (a gesture, by the way, which I NEVER do on command, only when angling for some noms or a walkie).

Check it out. Yup, just hanging out in the snow and I am wonderfully charming.

Sorry, big guy, even that peculiarly buxom snow man person is cuter than you are.

The old face on the couch look. Makes momma go all gushy.

Just a pretender to the throne. Not even close.

While preferring to be nekked, I will, on occasion, indulge the DOH by putting on an outfit thereby earning squeals of delight, noms, and another trip of my image into the cuteness folder.

Duh, is this the proper way to wear a toot toot?

Finally, I give you the ultimate in cute, the absolutely most charming, most endearing, most "aw look at the little lab" exclamatory picture.

Yup, poolside Dexter. Doesn't get any more precious than this!

I suspect alcohol might have been involved in the decision to label this foamy mess as cute. Poor batty old momma. Just too lovestruck by the clumsy foolish beast to think straight.

Dexter done!

P.S. Momma finally checked our PO box and it had a Starbucks gift certificate and this peculiar bag of human treats in it from Clover and Cosmo. But we forgot their blog address so can somebody help us out to say thanks?

That's my cute little snooter at the bottom of the photo. Hehehe.

Reilly / Bree said...

Woofs and Licks,

Mack said...

You are one cute labramess!

Gus said...

At the risk of incurring the dreaded and terrible "wrath of the Mango Man" I will acknowledge your superior cuteness. Please note that I am posting this under Gussie's ID...hehehe....maybe the Mango will sit on him.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Dexter, you're definitely giving Mango some major competition for the cute factor!

Dexter, we hate to tell you this, but as much as our Mom loves labradudes, she is "head over heels" in love with The RH!!

You youngs might find yourselves to be cute but we olds have cornered the market on adorables. All your bouncing, spinning, wildness just detracts from the handsome. You have to hold still to be truly cute. I do believe that is an art that Mango and I have mastered.

I am glad that you stayed IN the pool.. beclaws I am SURE you are one of those.. swim in the Furs kinda guys!!!

Erika and Blair,xoxo said...

Dex you are a cutie for sure!

KB said...

I'm in total agreement with you, Dexter. Labradors rule when it comes to cuteness!!!! Labradorable is a perfect term.

The poolside photo is too much!

Ask Mr. RH if he's ever found an RH calender. Labradorable wall calenders abound, further supporting our view of their incredible cuteness!

twobarkingdogs said...

Glad you checked your mail box!!

Clover and Cosmo send their best to The Big Guy and their Labrdude friend, too!

(( we're at wwww.twobarkingdogs.wordpress.com ))

Have a great day!!! And, let us know how that candy tastes. I do a lot of shopping at the asian grocery store, and a few weeks ago found some tomato flavored hard candy. I am so tempted to pick some up and put it out at work .. just to watch the faces!!!!

Cyber-sibes said...

Yup, our mom did go "Awwwwwww!!!!!" at that poolside shot. SO we agree, woo are cutie.
But really, woo don't see the cuteness of His Hughness's jowls on the arm of the couch & those big sad eyes? Humans eat that stuff up!

However, in our opinion, if woo wanna see "cute", observe some Siberians. "Cute" is in our DNA! ( Just look at me & Khyra!)

Mom's "Cute Little Moo"

Priscilla said...

Dex, you knew it so well!!!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I think woo've been studying those adorable PA Labrapups and their blog pikhs!

Woo did reasonably well at being khute but The RH still wins paws and butt down!


Deefor said...

Cute if you like that sort of doggie. Some people even think Arrow's cute. I prefer cute Mango doggies myself.


Corbin said...

Hm... Dex, you're cool and all, but watch out. Some people might think you're a wee bit stuck up from this post! bol!

Sue said...

You are one cute dude!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

You are definitely a cutie, Dexter - love that poolside shot the best. But you know there are all different modes of cuteness, so we have to say we do think there is a lot of cuteness in both the RH and in you too:)

Hey handsome, you are asking for trouble

rottrover said...

Pea, you are definately mucho cute; no doubt about it, but as the mother of three, I've learned long ago not to assign anydoggie to one absolute category. Handsome, cute, bootiful, silly, funny cuddely, bouncy, of course affectionate and loving, stinky, pushy, bossy... You get the picture. Besides, my favorite pictures of you are the movies -- in which your labraself is bouncing, jumping and, ahem, being adorable!

Tessa the Maltese said...

OMD I have to agree with the pool pic! YOU are just the cutiest potootiest lab I evers did see!

Bouncing Bertie said...

Dexter, just a wee bit full of ourself today, perhaps?
Toodle pip!

Kari in WeHo said...

Nicole said...

Dexter, you definalty have the cute factor going for you.

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

Oh Dexter...that pic of you peeking outta the pool is the cutest one we've ever seen. The pic of Mango slobbering? Um well....

I think he needs a bib.


Lacie Beast XXOO

Amber-Mae said...

AWW gee Dexter, I never knew you could look this adorable!

Carol from Down Under said...

Hi Dexter, I agree you are cute, but then so is the Mango. You know the family rule - no-one can be cuter than the other. We love you all the same. I know, boring but true. Take care cutey. No worries, love Carol.

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Y'all are both very cute!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Ooh, Dexter, I'm going to do the diplomatic thing and say that you're BOTH cute...but humans, you know...well, some of them are just biased towards big clunkheads with droopy jowls, lots of drool and a vacant expression...! :-)

Carrie and Waffle said...

black labs are the bomb!!!

Sarge said...

Hey Dexterdude!
Wow, you labsolutely are very photogenic! Cute pix. Love the one one the couch...I pull that same look with my head on my dad's knee...works like a charm!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Lorenza said...

Adorable pictures, Dexter!
And Mango's too!
Mango candies?? yummy!
Kisses and hugs

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

We see Clover & Cosmo already got in touch with you, so we won't repeat their blog address, but we want you to know we went to the trouble of looking it up :) We infer those package characters are in some recognized language, but why would they put 'mango' in English and the rest of the words not in English?

You are both super cute, and our favorite pic of the two of you is still the current header/banner whatever you call it, with Pea's arm wrapped around the RH's neck.

Hi Dexter,
Well, my mumma says that some huu-mans have a peculiar fondness for that drooly sad-eyed kind of cuteness that the Mango dog does, and some huu-mans go for other kinds of furry cuteness like your handsome self. So in the end we all have someone would loves us. (Which I say is a good thing for that Mango dog that someone loves him!!)

Woofs & not so many slobber from your handsomest furiend, Ruger

Sapphire said...

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Oh Dear Mango! I have to confess in a moment of weakness last Saturday (after teaching the worst class ever!), I gave in and had MANGO SORBET! I'm so sorry! I thought it would lift my spirits and it did!

Dex... I think all the photos are CUTE!!! You are both handsome funny boys!!!

Marjie said...

Human treats labeled Mango? How very peculiar.

I wave the paw for attention, too, like RH, and never on command. It works every time. But Momma says you're a cute little guy. Whatever.


Ludo van Doggy said...

You is the king of cute Dexter! Mango could never take your crown.

Maggie and Mitch said...

You are Labradorable for sure, Dexter!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

K9 Katastrophie said...

Hi Dexter! I would agree you are too cute!

FiveSibesMom said...

You are a posterpup for cute!

houndstooth said...

Dexter, you definitely ooze cuteness!


Lexi and Jasper the Danes said...

O Dexter you are just very cute!

And definitely the last photo is super cute - gotta love a labradorable in the water :)

Licks and lots of slobber,
Lexi and Jasper the Danes

dewdana said...

Cute overload! I knew your famous poolside pic would make it in. That could be labeled with about 100 different key words, cute, hilarious, spooky, howard hughes, creepy, intense, hypnotic, human etc etc... I have to agree you are always cute though!

Michelle said...

I don't know - hard choice, which one is cuter! I'm partial to the Labradorks (my first dog was a most special one) but one of the Relentlessly Huge's brethren is presently consuming my life.. I'm going to give it a tie and say you're both charming and handsome!
