Happy Independence Day by Dexter

Dexter here trying to clean up the blog after that alarming outburst yesterday. Don't worry, as momma has a big day planned of dog fun, housework, and yard work, I doubt she will have the time to get grouchy at Apple for taking away her freeze frames.

In honor of the day, here is a labradorable picture of me when I was just six months old. Can you say SQUEEEEE?

I'm planning to spend the day in the optimal cooling spot. The RH doesn't fit here, hehehe. But this is right where a lot of the coldness from the AC falls and you can bet that I am all about that.

Dexter done!

P.S. Momma confesses that she should have let the RH eat his big old elk neck bone, but she can go freak-a-zoid over the weirdest stuff. What can you do?

Smart Labradude!! And even Sophie squeed over your baby pic... she's quite taken with you, after all Dexter!!

I confess I worry about bones here too. :) Sometimes I take bones away from Murphy because she's so little and they just seem to be way too much for her and her little digestive system. Those are the moments she tries to tell me she's a BIG dog trapped in a LITTLE body, LOL

Happy Independence Day!

Dexter our house, the muzzer always hogs the cool spots. However, there is always that shiny stuff in the bathroom, where she does NOT like to lie down. Hah! MY cool spot

Happy 4th labradude and relentlessly huge! We like to lie on ac vents when we get most warm. Ahhhhhhh. So comfy. Enjoy your day of dog fun (the rest of it sounds BORING to us)!

PS. Could you just do regular screen captures of the iMovie screens? Our ape is a bit dim and didn't know there was another way to do it other than the Command+Shift+4 thingy majiggy.

Just love her. And remember - she's only human!
Hope you have a great 4th guys!

You were and still are adogable, Dexter!

Don't feel alone... We aren't allowed to have anything like pigs ears, rawhides, etc., and that was before all of Sissy's allergies. Sigh.

Happy 4th!

Dex, yu were,yet continue to be about the cutest labradude we know! We are most impressed that your momma is back in the computer saddle so soon. Our mom is mad at Apple, too, because they stole her iCal. Who needs a schedule, we say?? Our mom was also in total agreement about the big bone. Her friend once had to take her dog to the emergency vet, and all around the waiting rooms were pictures of horrible punctures and stuff caused by BoNES. We barely get bully sticks!! She''s considering getting us knuckel bones. Also, she always rewards us with a cookie in order to move in for any bone/bullystick removal...

Enjoy yur A/C vent, Pea!!

Happy Independence Day Dexter. Stay cool. We had to do our exercise at 6:30 AM today so that we wouldn't overheat.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Thanks for that Dex!

I say that your Mom should give the Mango back his elk neck bone and let him enjoy the rest of it!

Have a Happy 4th of July!

woos, Tessa

Okay, we are totally squeeing over Dexter the labrapup! Nice work on sucking up all the AC! We don't have central air in our house (and it was 91 degrees yesterday! Ack!), but we've got one air conditioner in the bedroom - pointed right at the bed. Which kinda, sorta helps. We really need a neighbor like yours with a cement pond. That would ease all of our heat issues. (Because yesterday is was - get this - TOO HOT to go to the pond!!! Apparently Dad is hyper-sensitive to heat right now, and did want Mom to just drive us to the pond and then have wet doggie bodies in the car. It's a Jeep. What are a few wet doggie bodies in a Jeep? Really...)

STELLA from Down Under said...

Hi Dexter, my mum said to say g'day. You look very handsome. Are you the one that goes cracker? Where is cracker and how do you get there? Gosh, I have a lot to learn. I kept mum awake last night hehehe. No worries, and love, Stella
