Some Updates on Pals and Puppy Playtime with Dexter

If you can send some doggie zen to one of our dearest friends, Miss Penny, it sure would be appreciated. She is suffering from the arthritis and having a difficult time getting about lately.

I am also sad to share that Dennis the Vizsla's little Trouble Kitteh crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. That is really sad as she was the only thing standing between those big clumsy dogs and total mayhem. Not sure how mama and dada will manage without her.

On a more cheerful note, Miss Daisy survived her tail shortening and even though her tail is orange now, I think she will be glad not to always be suffering from those happy tail boo boo's (I am told her nub is only temporarily orange).

And our buddy, Fred, got some good news from the vet that he is a pretty healthy guy, so all paws crossed that the evil seizure monster does not visit him again.

Hey! Our good pal, Jarrod brought his wee little puppy over to meet ME!

Gosh, he looks just like a mini Norwood.

The RH was not allowed to come out and play. Why? Because he is a fool who alternates between mugging and stepping on puppies. That's right. Our poor nephew Oliver got squished so badly he had to go the the vet and then the RH got all grouchy and cut the poor little Oliver in the brains with his big toofer. You don't believe me? Well you can read all about it here.

But that is neither here nor there because I know how to behave. Since Rocky is only 3 months old I knew that he would be a little intimidated by my labraself, so I just played it cool with him.

I even made a movie of him enjoying MY estate.

I hope he can come back again soon. It can grow tiresome having nobody to play with other than the relentlessly moody.


Dexter done!

You are clearly an excellent uncle, Dexter!

Is Rocky a cattle dog?


Frankie Furter said...

OMD... at FURST I thought somebuddy had SHRUNK Norwood!!
What a grrrreat puppy furend he is!! Too bad only Dexter got to play with him. Maybe next time.. when he is actually Norwood's Size you will get to enjoy him also.
THANKS FUR THE UPDATE on our furends.

Rocky is such a cutie wittle pup. Butt....he's bigger den me. How can dat be???

Peppy Sheppys said...

We will have to ask you to take down this movie IMMEDIATELY as our ape says it has given her something called PUPPY FEVER and we will have to call 9-1-1 as she is most ill. We don't need another one of those little bitey annoying this so long as Ed acts like a baby. A bossy, mean, cranky baby.

Sheps w/Pep and Otis.

Mack said...

Mom is all googoo over lil Rocky.
She says she can smell the puppy breath from over here and it is intoxicating.
We are so proud of how nice you are to the baby.


Lassiter Chase and T said...

Dexter, you are such a good host! You sure took him on a grand tour of the estate! I really like how you put together the music in the video. Nice!

Anny said...

Hey... that's really a mini Norwood.. hehehehee Maybe Norwood should come over and check Rocky out too!

Robin Rankin said...

We have SIX puppies and Hunter is scared of them. But they are still pretty small so maybe he'll come around by the time they go to new homes. Really cute video :)

Tell ya what Dex, you can come over to my house to play - and bring Rocky (although Mom may try to dognap him) and we can all play while RH admires himself in the mirror at home.

Thanks for the update on what I'm sure are very special 4 leggers.

I hope DOH's job is goin' well.

Woofs and rocky slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

rottrover said...

Dexter, you are such a sweet, give him his space, kind of labradog!! Rocky is furry cute - looking a lot like Stumpy.

The poor Mango! Your howls are relentlessly heartbreaking - but NO nomming puppies!!

What a very confident boy Rocky is for such a young pup!!! He was quite at home at the estate. He sure does look like he could be Norwood's cousin.

Thanks for the news report, Dexter - some good and some not so good. Crossing our paws for all.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Sue said...

It's nice of you to play with the puppy, Dexter. Fudge has to stay away from pups, too. He gets a little too rough when he plays. Maybe Fudge and Mango should get together. They can compare nards.

w are sending positive thought to your friend

Marjie said...

It's not that the RH is stupid about puppies. He just forgets that he's big. Mastiffs don't exist behind the collar, or so Mom says. I wouldn't know. I am a very small head only, myself.


Oskar said...

Sorry about your friends, but it's is good news, hopefully, for Fred.

It looks like you had a blast playing with that pup. Your a great teacher.

Nubbin wiggles,

Kari in WeHo said...

That is one cute puppy


Corbin said...

What a cool play time with the puppy! I just had a foster puppy with me for a few days... they sure can be a lot of fun!

Maggie and Mitch said...

What a cute puppy! We hope he comes back to play with you soon, Dexter!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Clive said...

He does look just like a mini-Norwood!

Great job looking after and playing with him Dexter!

take care
Clive and Murray

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

There's nothing better than a puppy playdate. Poor Mango missed out--but Dexter is a perfect puppy socializer! I think you need to put out a shingle for him!

Anonymous said...

Hey there Dex! Pawsitive vibes to all your buddies.

That pup sure looks like a mini Norwood.

You are a good neighbor too!

woos, Tessa

houndstooth said...

*Squeeee* That puppy is almost as cute as you, Dex! I think the RH must be relentlessly jealous this time!


ForPetsSake said...

Dexter, you are a wonderful playmate - that pup looked as though he was having a blast!

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...


You look so happy playing with the puppy. Did you ask your Mom for one of your very own ?

It looks like the puppy got a very proper tour of the Dexter/Mango estate. Rocky was just the cutest coming down those steps and the two of you at the end with your nose in the camera was pure adorable.


Daisy Dog said...

Puppy SQUEEE!!! My tail is now pink, its about time. I can't believe they mismatched me with orange!

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Nice work teaching the little dude about stairs! Hey, Dexter, in my doggie class there's a labrapup - he's only like 8 months old or something - and smaller than you by quite a bit, but I'm going to pretend he's you - I've always wanted a labrabuddy! I hope your little buddy can come visit often, so you're not doomed to purgatory with the RM! Heehee!

STELLA from Down Under said...

Hi Dexter, your new friend Rocky looks like he enjoys a good play. Reminds me of someone I know. He's pretty cute too. Poor Uncle Mango for missing out on the fun. No worries, and love, Stella

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Thanks for all the updates, Dex! Guess you guys have become the new Blogville News Center for most of us.

Rocky sure does look like Nordude. Hope he gets to play with you - and maybe Oliver - again. Bet Mango enjoys making like a bloodhound and sniffing out the trespasser's scent. We would. Of course, we could be trusted to play with him :)

The Island Cats said...

Dexter, you sure are having a good time with Rocky. Maybe Mango needs to learn a lesson or two from you on how to play with woofies smaller than him...but then again, most woofies are smaller than Mango!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Dory and the Mama said...

WOWOWOWOW!!! New puppies are the bestest new friend EVER Dexter!! Looks like you had a blast!!

We have to sequester Bilbo in Mama's room when we have new puppies over. He isn't big enough to squish them...but he has been known to try and cut their brains with his toofies!!

Jacob (and Dory)

Tucker said...
