Trapped with BigFoot by Dexter

Friday, our pal, Jared came over with his mini-Norwood, Rocky. I figured, good times, right?

WRONG! Because the RH is NOT allowed to play with puppies. No problem? Well, except that momma says "oh, Dexter, Mango is so stressed being in the house and he will feel better if you are inside with him."

WTF? I have to suffer because BigFoot is a clumsy, grouchy oaf who bounces on puppies and tries to fit them in his jaws of doom? NO FAIR!

Look at him. Fool!

And what's up with Jared wearing his road crew visible from a distance of 87 miles shirt?

To make matters worse still, just seeing that puppy made Mango feel a hankering to experience the crunchy, furry sensation of a good chomp on yours truly.

You feel sorry for me, right?

OK, in the interest of full disclosure, I did get to play with Rocky and actually we took turns being in the yard so that the RH's head wouldn't explode or anything. Even still, just not always easy living with such a temperamental cry baby momma's dog, let me tell you.

I made a little movie you can watch here. You know, I used to embed my movies, but sometimes when I use the YouTube music, the embedded version doesn't play right. Weird.

And to what purpose was Jared here anyway? You tell me. And does he know that even though he says his name is Jay Rod that it is spelled Jar'd?

He and Master labored all day long outside and near as I can tell the only result is this pointless leggo log box with dirt in it.

Dexter done!

P.S. Bigfoot is less big than before and is starting his second week of the antibiotics.

the horrors you have to endure, Pea is beyond well, horrible. I'm glad you were removed from whiny RHs presence and were able to have some funballs time with Rocky

Woofs and horrible slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

We feel sorry for you both. BUT glad Pea that you did get to have some playtime with the pup.
Hope RH feels better and can stop with the antbotiks

That looks like good puppy fun, Dexter!


houndstooth said...

Dexter, I can't believe you had to babysit the RH while that puppy was outside, no doubt begging for you to come out and play with him! The injustice of it all! It does look like you two made the most of the time you did have to play out there, though.


Ludo van Doggy said...

Poor you Dexter. Still it does be nice to help others out. I has to baby sit Auntie Penny when Grandpawents go out and she comes down to my house. A good dogs work be never done.
Mini Norwood looked cute!

Sam said...

Siblings ruin it for everybody, don't they? Glad you were able to sneak away for a little while. That is one CUTE puppy!

Looks like you and the RH might be getting a giant sandbox Dexter! Wahoo! The Master and Jar Head may want to rethink the height of the walls though. If you get into your diggin anything like I do, the sand will fly way over the top of those boards ;)

So glad to hear your foot is less large Mango :D Just say YES to drugs ;)

Waggin at ya,

Looks like they are building you a sandbox! Cool beans! We have heard rumors, BTW, that puppies DO taste like chicken, so the RH might be on to something there... However, we can't believe that you have to babysit something the size of a small car. I mean, really? The RH can't stay in the house by himself? Couldn't the DOH just give him some Giant Puppy-shaped Chicken Treats and let you go have SERIOUS funballs times? Just saying...

The stuff we have to tolerate because of our annoying siblings. SHEESH!! I'm glad you were rewarded with some time with Rocky, though, Dexter. And yes, we noticed that the supervision provided by men working on projects at your house greatly resembles the supervision provided by men working on projects at our house.

careful Pee Wee you may taste like chicken too

wow Dex that sure is terrible that you had to spend all that time with the Mango.

So Mango, does Dex taste like chicken?

Hope you foots feels better real soon Mango.

woos, Tessa

Marjie said...

Well, at least you got to play. And you could see Jar'd even if he strayed 87 miles. Probably he needed to wear that shirt so Rocky could keep track of him.

The Boston Lady said...

Oh Dexter, the things you must endure on behalf of your brother! AND afterall you did get to play some. Glad Mango's foot is getting less big. (Perhaps they are thinking of litterbox training you guys!) Ann TBL

STELLA from Down Under said...

Hi Dexter, Well even though you had to babysit Uncle Mango, you did get a play with the pup and looks like you are getting a sandpit. Cool. By the way, my friend Sam says cats taste like chicken. I wouldn't know, I can't get close enough to my cat to find out. P.S. There are big changes afoot at my house. I hope mum blogs for me soon. No worries, and love, Stella

KB said...

Oooh a sandbox for digging. Very cool!!!!!

And, no, Mango, puppies don't taste like chicken!

Dory and the Mama said...

Oh Dex...we SOOOOO get it, Bilbo is almost JUST THE SAME!!

At least it looks like you got a sand box out of it!!

Au and Target said...

You poor darling, how UNFAIR life is to you! You deserve extra treats for this abuse. Really.

PS tell Bigfoot we're glad the paw is healing finally.

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

We're not buying the sandbox theory. There's a HUGE metal pole in the sandbox with compression hoses and maybe an electrical box hanging off of it. And there's a white pipe that almost looks like a vent pipe. We suspect the sandbox is to keep you away from something, not to add to your digging pleasure. Maybe Master is building a backyard sauna, for steaming the Mango owies? Or perhaps it's the control house for the inground pool the Master is finally installing for your recreational pleasure?

We infer RH did not actually damage Rocky during the RH's brief sojurn in the yard [if we read you right, you both got some yard time], although it was prudent of Mango Momma not to film the RH's interaction in case of subsequent court action, in the unlikely event of an unfortunate RH-Rocky encounter. Good job, Pee Wee, you don't have to come with a disclaimer :)

Boy that Jed and Abby are so all over the Law. We only hope Bruvver's law school teachers are that good...did we tell you he started school at night this fall? He's a busy boy...

So...what IS Jared building? Perhaps it's some kinda snow melter. One that would automatically melt trails for you in the back yardie Peewee!! Though I think you did enjoy having the snowbank even with your fence making it all too easy to escape.

That little puppy looks quite active. I can't believe Mango was speculating on his resemblance to chicken. So his paw is better? Are you doing warm soaks Dexter? Let me know if you need help with nursing him...

Audio swap on You Tube is an exercise in frustration for me. It takes several DAYS after I audio swap on one of my videos for the music to play with the video. One of these days I am going to get a Mac where I understand adding music & effects is so much easier.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Gosh, Dexter - you really sound like you had a tough day! How come there are no pictures of you & Rocky playing??

Glad to hear that the RH's foot is starting to get smaller!!

Poor Dex! I don't think it's right that you had to RH-sit your brother!!! I sure hope his foot mends soon!

monica said...

ah well those kind of zoomies would have worn me out completely!

fun to watch though...

Bundy the (lazy) bundle of joy..

Amber DaWeenie said...

Me nose you didn't mind keeping da big one company but it makes it look like more of a sacrifice if you complains (I nose cause me does it all da time) BOL

Butt gots to sit in da big sand box.

Erika and Blair,xoxo said...

Oh Dexter it must suck that you can not control the Mango and his urges to eat small critters. Hopefully you made the best of your time inside and well at least you got to play a little bit.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

It is so furry interesting to see the sizing perspekhtive!

PeaWeeDexter looks SO furry small next to Handsome RH BUT next to Rocky, Dexter looks HOOOOOOOOOOOGE!


The Thuglets said...

Shame you were confined to barracks.

Is that a sandpit?

Glad you got to at least have a little play time with the pup. I'm hungry now -- I wonder if it would taste like chicken. I hope we have chicken for dinner soon.
