Saturday Swimming with Dexter


Have you forgotten me?

Hey! Bigfoot! There are other dogs in this house, you know!

He's always touching me with his stinky elephant foot. Ew!





Mercifully, I was able to enjoy a nice swim that was not only invigorating, but served to wash away the cooties.




Ah, tennis ball and water... all that's missing is food and I would be in labraheaven.



In order to prolong my pool time, I keep the ball just out of Momma's reach while I take a quick break.




Labradorable! You know it!




Quick dry and I'm good as new.



Check out my action swim movie here.




Dexter done!

P.S. Yes, the swelling on Mr. Heavy Foot is continuing to go down and he is as annoying as ever. I apologize for the DOH who has been leaning on the mark all as read button like her life depended on it.

Aw, Dexter, you're adorable! You look like you're in labraheaven in that movie, too! I think you need a few ducks in the pool to make things more interesting!

Looks like sheer labra-heaven to us! (And 'doodle heaven, too! We wanna come visit!) Very clever of you to keep the tennis ball out of the reach of the DOH! Good moves there!

Eww all that water makes me wanna run the other way.

I know all about cootie foot. Queen Emma's smells like corn chips, eck!
Dad says all our toes smell like corn chips but I do not believe it there is no way a Princess Bella foot could ever smell like t hat.

Glad Mango's foot is getting better. How are the test results?

What a wonderful Video. I noticed how your foot power is very good and your turning skills are exceptional. The maneuver with the ball greatly enhances your chances of staying longer in the water.

I would put your overall scores at 10 out of 10. The dog olympics will be calling you soon.

Dexter, you are the picture of all things Labrador! I want to jump in there with you!

Kylie and Jimmy said...

Hey Dex- It's me- Jimmy. I too have hijacked my bloggie the last few days- wanna know why? TOMORROW IS MY BIRTHDAY! I don't know if you might have missed it what with the MAAR (mark all as read) button being used, but be sure to stop on over tomorrow for sure. (I even have snacks if you can talk your DOH to bring you over! hehehehe)

Puppy Kisses,
Jimmy

Dex - I think your Mom should get you one of those swimming pool floaty things for party beverages, and just fill it with cheese and assorted snacks for your handsome self?

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Love the hornpipe music accompanying your nautical movie! Glad to see you're still getting in your summer swims; you are very lucky to have such nice neighbors. Relieved to hear the RH's elephant foot continues to improve; did the test results reveal anything?

Sue said...

Maybe Bigfoot should go with you and soak his foot.

You really do love that water, don't you, Dexter? You are so lucky to have that nice big pool all to yourself.

Glad to hear that BigFoot is shrinking, hope all is soon back to normal.

Awww...nothing cuter than a Labraswimmer. I do so enjoy watching that handsome boy swimming!
Also very glad that Mango's paw is returning to its enormous size ;)

Hi Dexter! Labradorable!!!

Licks,

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

OK, Peewee...Scruffy here...I'm confused...they throw the ball...you get to dive into an amazing fresh water pool and chase it...then you not only get to retrieve it, but you get to chlorinate Mango stench. And then you get out and you get, roach, then get TREATED for doing all that stuff you'd kill to do anyway??? Like if we got treats for chasin' bunnies????

So, our bags are packed, we're ready to go, the taxi's here, he's blowing his horn; already I'm so what's the rest of the words???

We'll all be arriving by private jet at midnight. Mumsie's coming too...so no broom. She said she wants to swim next door too...and she's going to help Momma with some of her hardware duties...she's good at giving away paint sticks and very good at giving lawn advice...plus she's sick of nursing this week.

Kisses,

Lacie Beastie

Great photos. I especially like the one of him hanging onto the side of the pool. Soooo cute.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Love ya lots

STELLA from Down Under said...

Hi Dexter, lucky you got to go swimming. You have been neglected and deserved this treat. Of course you are labradorable. I love labs sooo much. No worries, and love, Stella

Lassiter Chase and T said...

Love the video -- the music made me want to dance! I like the picture of you sitting on the step of the pool.

sagechronicles said...

I DO like the looks of that pool, Dexter! And the ball that goes with it--my kind of fun.

Yoda_the_Dog said...

For some reason I won't go in our pool. I love swimming in the lake but just won't do the pool. Sure looks like you had some fun!

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Nothing like good swimmie fun!!!

The Thundering Herd said...

Dex,we may not be water hounds ourselves, but that does look cool and fun.

Carrie and Waffle said...

Dex
you are soo cute, I wish you could convince Waffle that water is not the devil's tool. She refuses to go near anything larger than a bowl of water.

Ohhhhhh, Dexter! That pool looks SOOOOO GOOD! It has been around 106 degrees over here and we would LOVE to have a big pool like that to swim in! We have one of those little kids pools like you used to have and we don't all fit! The CCC
