Tick Tock

Friends, loyal readers, and fans of yours truly, I fear that the time is drawing near when I will have to relinquish MY blog back to the Relentlessly Huge. Yes, Mango Minster is drawing to a close which means the gigantic, cry baby momma's dog will be back to chronicle the minutia of his every "waking" moment.

I thought I would sneak onto the computer one last time while he is at his absurd water therapy.

Kind of ironic that he gets to do water therapy seeing as I, Dexter, am an actual water dog (as opposed to a boat anchor with fur).

Lately the only time I enjoy feeling moisture on my labrafurs is when I get left out in the rain.

I realize that my large vocabulary and well crafted sentences have attracted some new readers.

Readers who might not fully appreciate what I was confronted with when I first came to live at my forever home.

Fear not! I have learned to hold my own against the torpid beast and frequently share some well crafted HBO words with him.

I even take the opportunity to gnaw on him now and then when momma forgets my weekly meaty bone. Don't worry. As it takes several minutes for the sensation of my teeth to actually traverse the sluggish neurons connected to his "brain" I am well out of harm's way before he figures out that it is jaws of doom time.

I have been promised the occasional blog time to air my views and cleanse your reading pallets of the poor grammar, misspellings and adolescent phraseology that are the hallmark of the simple creature known as Mango.

Nevertheless, I will be once again relegated to a supporting roll on this blog, so drink in my fine labradoredness while you can.

Dexter done!

Dexter Dude: Wait! We love reading your stuff, but we want you (and Mango Man) to realize just how lucky you are to have an (ahem) ACTIVE) Blog rather than one like ours that goes dormant for long periods.

To say nothing of Mango Minster!

You are lucky Puppies.

Hmmmmm I think it is is time you had your OWN blog - Dexter's Doings. A place where we highly educated dudes can hang out together away from the dweebs we currently have to share our lives with.

We always look forward to your posts, Dex! But sharing sucks. It just does.

You have been doing a great job filling for the RH and I hope he lets you post a bit more often than in the past. I do enjoy your witty view of life on the estate.


Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

I shall miss your more frequent musings.

Shawn said...

I agree, time for your own bloggy! We love visiting, learning new words and just delight in your absolute cuteness!

Hey Peewee! I would just love it if you had your own blog. You are a terrific writer with interesting thoughts. What do you say, can you work that out with the powers that be?

Lets hope so!


Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, Dexter, we will miss you. you do have fans.

Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie said...

Dexter we will miss you too. We have enjoyed reading YOUR blog. Perhaps you could persaude your Momma to help you start your own pawsonal blog................ hee hee.

Dexter, you have done a great job with all of your posts. We have been very well entertained. We hope Mango will let you have a couple of posts every week and some joint ones as well.

Dexter I have learned so much from you, I wonder that you shouldn't be a teacher. I will miss your well thought out musings and your handsome face. What will you do now with your extra time? A book perhaps in the works? More time to torture The Mango? So much to do so little time I always say.You have worked diligently keeping up this important blog. Most other blogs aspire to be like this one(honestly that is true). Rest now my pal, you deserve it.

You've done an excellent job, Dexter!


STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Dexter, handsome and intelligent? No-one does it better. Dude, you're making it hard for us other blokes! I agree, you need your own blog. I need somewhere to learn blokey stuffs. No worries, and slobber, Rory.

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Dex, don't think of yourself as the backup dog. You're the Heir Apparant. Perhaps it's time for a co-regency?

Koobuss said...

Oh, Dexter!

Sorry to hear that you will now be reduced to a part-time blogger. But at least you will have more time to ponder the issues of day. Looking forward to hearing your insights on life with Mango and living in 21st Century New England.

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

KB said...

Oh Dexter, we will miss you so much. I loved the photos of puppy Dexter with RH! Oh My Dog, what a difference.

I read your previous post about why you don't compete in MM. I can see that we're all lucky that you don't - you *would* win every category!

Sorry that you've to share! It shows the truth and cruelty of the world, a world with NO 'fair'.

Piappies World said...

Hello there Peewee Dexter!

We love reading your adventures too. You think Mango would agree that you share the blog?! He did welcome you with open paws when you were a puppy. We got to say that you were already so cute and adorable back then!

Great work on Mango Minster, too! Forgie was so happy to be part of the Adventure Dog category. Yay!

The Thuglets said...

Dexter..we will miss you. Do you think maybe a deal could be struck with Mango and Momma for a monthly slot?
We remember your puppy photos so well!

Peruby said...

Those puppy pictures made me go "Awww!" Such a drastic contrast between the puppy and Mango.

Casey said...

I'm going to miss you, Dexter! It's been so nice reading your adventures. I hope Mango will be generous about sharing his blog with you.

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

Yes, it's good to remember why you are called Pee Wee. It seems you will never shake the "little man" complex, Dexter, and we like that about you. Compensate away!

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

Ah, we are doubly sad; not only is MM 2012 coming to a close, but Dexter's Doings will once again become the domain of the "boat anchor with fur"! (Dude! Best. Description. Ever.) We LOVE Dexter's Doings. Oh, and, of course, we can NEVER get enough pictures of your labrapup self - amazing how you were able to deal with the RH when you were the size of a grapefruit! And we're totally writing you in for Best in Show. Because you are the Complete Package! :-)

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

I don't suppose I could be BEST IN SHOW now, can I??? Lacie wads up yet another kleenex...she tosses it listlessly...she's been off her feed for two days now...has only been eating 6 slices of cake per meal.... do look rather handsome on that blogger header....and I can't even imagine how terrierfied you were when the RH stuck his smelly face into your puppy crate....

I'm going to go and stick another pin into my Loki doll...



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



And that is the last nice thing I will say to you for like 23 days.

Kisses to Toothless,

Miss Beast

Moose Dog said...

I bet if you went to that water therapy they would never get you outta the tank! Maybe you can find a stripey fur suit and trick momma into taking you instead! I will miss your labradoredness and hope you can squeeze yourself in the background of some pics at least!

Au and Target said...

Dex, you'll just have to blog efurry day! Then we can read your pawsome updates and those of Mango too.

ForPetsSake said...

We love you both, Dexter...and love every single post. This one had me in stitches - those baby pics slay me. See you soon, Dude.

Bassetmomma said...

You've done a great job Dexter!

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Dex, I think you do deserve your own blog... but that would probably make your mama's mentals blow a circuit or two!

I do love your posts!!

FiveSibesMom said...

We enjoyed your blogging adventures! We are happy Mango will be back, but you should definitely bark in your momma's ear about having your own blog!

Ms. ~K said...

I am going on a hunger strike if you do not get your own blog!!!
Sorry gotta run, it's supper time!

That picture of you all soaked from the rain is adorable!

It was fun getting to know you better. Look forward to hearing from you again.
