Dexter the Wonder Dog






Ever wonder why a toy that is so unremarkable that it passes for a piece of furniture for years...






... suddenly becomes fascinating?







Watch on YouTube here.

Dexter done!

Don't understand it, but it happens here too. Maybe the old otys are the best toys after all?

I don't understand it either. The only thing I know is that if Rory gets my toys, I want to play with them straight away. Dexter, mum said the first photo is gorgeous. You certainly are labradorable. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

... I reckon it's a bit like reaching for the plain biscuits when you've nose-bagged all the chocolate ones, then you have this wonderful moment when you remember that the plain biccies aren't actually so bad after all!

I love that his tail is wagging the whole time!

It's a good thing when you wonder and excersize the grey matter. (Love that first pic!)

Well I think that toys need NAPS now and then... so they are all ready fur a Goooooood play.
Hey... your Holee Roller is HOOOOOGE. I DO play with Mine EVERY evening.. Mom puts a Milkbone in it and as soon as I manage to get it out... Nap time fur H.R. hehehe

Now... I have a question... what is the HOOOOOGE blue flying saucer thingy???

The Army of Four said...

That's kind of a profound post from you, Dexter. I'll do some deep thinking on this!

Sarge said...

Hey Wonder Dex!
Wow, great video! Love that zany music and your bounding-around self. Sometimes I like to ignore a toy for a long time, then pretend it's all new again. Well, it's a living. :(
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Jasmine said...

ooo; that's deep. You should ask Mango Man to meditate on it for a bit. I'm sure he can help you find the answers you are seeking...

Puppy Love,

Bouncing Bertie said...

Dexter, surely it is no mystery at all that as we dogs mature our interests change. How boring life would be otherwise...
Toodle pip!

I heard Meja in the toybox yesterday and it went on and on so I went to check because, well you know... It seems her object of affection was this teeny tiny blue dog that hadn't seen the light of day in years.

Now it's her ONE.TRUE.LOVE!!!

Sue said...

We have one of those. Mom uses it to teach us how to catch, then she puts it away so we can't take it apart. It looks like fun.

Have a great week!

Sometimes an old toy just has a bit of new life to it! I'm glad you found something to amuse yourself with, Dex!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

That happens a lot here too,and that is why we don't think the Momster should ever do her "cleaning out" of the toy box.

Dexter, you have the fastest wagging tail we have ever seen.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Pee Ess,thanks for you good wishes for our friends.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Amber DaWeenie said...

:o)

Mack said...

Tessa the Maltese said...

Gee Dex you are one FAST pup! Sheesh, I need a nap just from watching you!

Sure, I thinks the toys hide then out they pop and they are new all over again.

Hey Dex, what is the biggie blue disc in the second pic? It sure is HUGE, is it Mango dinner bowl?

woos, Tessa

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Super fun balls for sure! I don't know why they do that... My Maggie May used to "reorganize" her toy box from time to time and find something new in there... It was so funny to watch...

Sadly, Mabel is done with toys!

Marjie said...

Because you got to be mature enough to understand it, of course!

Dory and the Mama said...

Don't you just love NEW old toys!!!

Fun play session Dex, Jakey especially likes the part where you got to keep the toy after Mango tried to take it!!


Smileys!

KB said...

We have one of those balls, and our dogs have never played with it. So, I put it away. Maybe they'll move as fast as both of you did (even RH!) if I take it out again.

Loved the very fast video...LOL!

Wyatt said...

Dexter-
I was getting dizzy, cuz your tail was wagging so much....

Au and Target said...

Did someone else want it? that's when our toys become precious!

Roo said...

That's one of my favorite toys Dexter. It's a bit worn now. Maybe I'll get a new one for my B-Day. Hint hint Mom ;)

Sure looks like you had fun rediscovering it again :) Great video!

Waggin at ya,
Roo

Lassiter Chase and T said...

Wow! Mommy had bought a toy like that ages ago -- she never thought of putting a tennis ball in there. She always wondered why no one wanted to play with that toy!

Hound Girl said...

hahaha I wish Haylie would get interested in an old toy - sigh, she is too much of a diva I think :)

*we have a new site so please make sure to update your reader :)

One does have to wonder - Mom 'rotates' our toys - hiding them away for a while - she seems to think we have 10 second memories like a goldfish or something and figures when she brings out the old toys again - they will be like new. Yeah Mom - what ever !

saintlover said...

Mine do the same thing... Dont you just wish you could be inside their heads when the wheels start turning... even if for only a minute.

hero said...

Oldies are goldies... but my hoomans say if that were true for me, I would have a cupboard full of new toys that would last me many Christmases :)

Licks, hero

Declan said...

Hey I like your blog boys. My Mum threw away my Gilly Gorilla just cos I ate all his insides and it looked like it'd been snowing in the kitchen. Humans Huh! Deccy x

What a cute PEEWEE face :)

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

You look like it's great fun. How do you get your tennis ball outta there. Is that some mean people trick? Why do they like to do those things to us? It's not funny. Like the fake throws stop it I say.

Hmmm a toy not being touched for years?? How odd, we have not had that happen yet!

Licks and lots of slobber,
