Norwood's Dog Days of Summer - Day 8 (with bonus video)

Grab this picture and play along

Day 8 - With Friends

Yours truly, Dexter, here with Day 8 of Norwood's Dog Days of Summer.

As many dear readers know, I, Dexter go to daycare each week to hang out with lots of friends. Here I can be seen on the observation rock getting ready to launch at the pointy finger just visible on the right hand side (note that I am NOT a peewee midget at all, but an actual full sized doggie).

Sadly, we do not get many doggie visitors at our estate due to the fact that the Relentlessly Rude is not a good host. But every now and then, momma schedules time for us to be around other doggies.

Subsequently, back in the winter that wouldn't end (2011), momma setup a time for our buddies, Tula and Norwood to visit our estate.

First they went walkies with the Relentlessly Huge. Tula and Mango have a kind of love / hate relationship. Meaning that Mango does his pathetic love song at Tula and tries to zoom in for a butt sniff whilst Tula keeps telling him "No means no!"

Me? I reserved bonus yard time with none other than Norwood himself. With Tula and the Relentlessly Lovesick in lockdown, we were able to enjoy some "normal dog" funballs. I do wish that momma had opted out of this group photo which renders me as a faceless black blog while Norwood is looking disturbingly cute.

Here is a bonus video. It gets better in the middle when momma breaks out my jumps and we show off our bouncing skills.

That snow sure looks inviting right about now. Our house is sealed up like a crypt and I haven't even been keen for tennis ball. Yes, friends, it is that hot.

Dexter done!

Dexter... when you said that you and Nordude partook in 'normal' funballs are you implying that the Nordude is normal? He doesn't look normal... he looks cracker!

It is bad when it is too hot for a labradude to even play tennis ball - but we hear you on this one - we want winter!!!!

harrispen said...

Dexter you are cute too. Even if we can't really see your face we all know it. Norwood can't help it because he is disturbingly cute! You two sure had fun together.

Your visit looks so...controlled. Whenever we have visitors, we just run helter skelter all over the place!

It's very cold here tonight, so we're sealed in, too.

I have decided I like this Norwood character. He is cute in the snow..butt I like your featureless self (in the pic). Leaves a bit of mystery :) Um...I don't think we ever knew you were a "big dog", as you are always compared with Giganto Mango. Pretty hilarious group pic.

I like Norwood too! Mango missed out on all the jumping treats:'(

That's a great shot of Dexter in the doggie camp picture!

Au and Target said...

You look great playing ball, Dex. A true bouncy dog!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Dex, you have an interesting jumping style that combines high jump and broad jump form. Interesting how you jump and tuck to get your butt as far over the line as possible, instead of jumping like a horse or a normal doggie. Well done - extra style points.

And we're glad to see the RH knows how to follow a lure - or in this case, an alluring Tula. So sad he is doomed to perpetual frustration.

Thank you for the refreshing reminder that the weather may once again get tolerable - or at least, under 100 degrees.

oh WOW! that looks like SO much fun! I'm not sure if I'm more jealous of Norwood getting to play with you or of you getting to play with Norwood!

Dexter Dude - you are awesome on those jumps!

your pal,
