Dexter in the Doghouse

Dexter here! And I am in big trouble!
The day started off OK. I got to try out my new Frisbee.

Its made out of rubber, so even when Dinosaur sized beasties play with it, it doesn't get broken.I LOVE chasing the Frisbee. Its sort of like chasing a bird!And when you run with it, it kind of flops around which makes it even more fun.I'm not sure why, but sometimes when I am chasing my Frisbee, my butt looks really HUGE (like Tanner).I go super fast so that my legs don't even really touch the ground much.And I even drop it to make it easier for Momma to pick up and toss again. Let's do it!Meanwhile, Relentlessly Huge "played" with the Cuz. Don't wear yourself out big guy (hee hee).And he did some roaching (wish you could hear the way he moans and groans when he does this - sounds like a big old wookie).After our morning workout, momma took off for parts unknown and said that when she got back I would get a special walkie and RH could run errands. Well, while she was gone, I noticed that one of the gates was slightly ajar and I kind of ran out and RH kind of ran out after me.

Mango said, "Let's go visit that blond labragal down the street." I was game and off we went (with Master in hot pursuit). Well, she wasn't home, so I suggested we take a foray into the woods and that's when poor old Master lost sight of us. Let me tell you, we had a great time in the woods and I managed to get totally wet, but Master was pretty upset. He ran back and got into his van and started driving around looking for us. He even called the animal cops and reported us missing.

After an hour or so, we made our way over to a house where some doggies live and the nice people there gave us tons of cookies. Meanwhile, they called Master on the phone because we keep our phone number on our collars and he came to get us.

Momma pulled into the street just in time to see Master walking home with us (busted!).

Poor old Mango was super tired because we'd kept up a pretty good pace and must have gone a few miles in all, so after drinking a gallon of water, he just konked out.

So now for the bad part...

Momma said Mango couldn't go on the Running of the Errands because he was too hot and tired from all the running and she was really mad at me for running away and for making Relentlessly Huge run until he could have had a heart attack or something.

I said, "OK, but how about that walk?" And she said NO WAY because she was "pig bitin' " mad at me. Master was mad at me because he always gets in trouble with Momma when we break out and he was worried that we might get lost. Even Mango was mad at me because he loves running errands and getting his car cookie. Not even cute face helped. I'm sorry everybody is mad at me.Dexter done.

That was tooooooo skhary!

What would your momma do without RH and woo in her life??

Eduardo said...

OMD! I'm so glad y'all are back & home safe! Dexter Don't You & Mango Run Out Like That No More! There could be mean peoples who would dognap y'all! Thats what my Mommy says, 'you could get lost or dognapped!' Now, I'm glad you had fun, & I'm not mad at y'all just glad y'all are safe! Tell Mango to get some rest!
Hugs & Snugs
Eduardo the Snuggle Puggle
p.s. I like your frisbee!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Dexter, how come you are the only one to be mad at?
Look, Mango started first:"Let's go visit that blond labragal down the street". You just wanted to please him, didn't you?
RH ran out of the gate after you did that didn't mean you started it. He was huge and you were faster.
And Master or your mom, either one of them didn't close the gate, see that?
You'll be OK, Dexter.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Hi big dude Mango man,
Crytal is not just a piece of fluff, she is the gorgeous fine young lady, big brother.
I love her, I respect her and I always do.
BTW, do you have a crush on anyone, big fella?

Peanut said...

Do not run away anymore. Let me tell you it isn't nice when you run off and get lost for 8 days. I speak from experience


Dining Alone said...

There are a lot of really BAD things out there little dude. Running away is a TERRIBLE idea, trust me. I sure hope you learned your lesson.

I also think your butt is smaller than Tanners.

Joe Stains said...

oops, that was me, not my stinkin Mom.

Kodak the Eskie said...

Wow, what a great play day! You guys got lots of fun running and catching.

Hugs, Kokak

Mack said...

I bet your poor parents were scared to death!

Thank dogness everything turned out okay!

River said...

That would be fun for a while but so many bad things could happen! You were very, very lucky. My mom could not resist that sad face, though.

love & wags,

The Musketeers said...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Dexter!

Thankfully your neighbors called your Master and you two are back at home!
Sorry about being in the doghouse!
Kisses and hugs

Dewey Dewster here....

Pei In The Life said...

Sounds like a great adventure! Except for the people being mad part of it. My Mom and I talked about my escaping like that once and she just about had a heart attack. I don't know what that is, but it doesn't sound good. Glad you're both safe.

Abby said...

Hi, Dexter...

They will get over it...Just keep looking cute...

Oh...& don't run away like that...It really makes the humans crazy...& you might get hurt or lost or something...

Abby xxxooo

Nancy at the Farm said...

No cookies? Get a lawyer - you can take your Mum to court to get those cookies. We will pack some up to send you if you send us your address. Cookies from the Pacific Northwest will help you through this dry period.

Love, Dozer, Cooper and Dottie

Charlie Daniels said...

Oh Dexter, I can really understand the desire for the adventure, but I have learned it just isn't worth it in the long run!

I hope you feel more loved again soon.



Niamh said...

Good grief! Your people were probably scared to pieces with you two on the loose. I am sure you had a great time but it was a good thing your nice neighbors called your master. No telling what trouble you boys could have gotten into.

Glad you got home safe and hope your mom isn't too mad at you.

Your friend,

Willow the Black Dale said...

Dexter....but the important question is my friend...did you have FUN!!! Sounds like you had a great time. Not that I approve of taking off without adult supervision (that is for the parents sake) but hey what a blast you must have had.
I do understand Mango trying to stop you but you just ran to fast for him little guy. Next time (oops did I just say next time?) give the poor guy a break. Don't worry you won't be in the "doghouse" for too long. None of them can resist you even if they pretend like they can.
Rock on little buddy,
pee sss.... did you look both ways before you crossed the street.

Randi said...

Oh No Dexter! That is a BAD BOY! You know RH can't keep up with a youngin' like you running around & acting all crazy...I bet your ma & pa were sooo mad...& what would have happened to my little cub if you all would have gotten lost? Sure, Mango can be seen by satelites way up in the sky..just like the Great Wall of China...aka The Great Mango of Mass. but you better be a good boy...cuz Mango likes his car cookies & I like Dexter Sunday...& they just might take that privilage away from you!

So I suggest you be on your VERY BEST BEHAVIOR FOREVER & EVER.

I can't lose my little cub.

love & licks,

MJ's doghouse said...

hey dexter...all i gotta say is this..."was it worth it?" cuz when i escape...very rarely mind is sooooooooooo worth it...and tell my man mango that the picture of him roaching...well..i think he should save those kind of photos for special doggy magazines...

The WriggleButts said...

Ooops.. I'm glad you two got back safely! You better not go killing yourselves because we would miss you! (But since you got back safely I'm glad you had fun on your little adventure!)


Amber-Mae said...

Oh Dexter! Don't eve do that again okay? Your poor Momma almost had a heart attack & that's no no good. Please be careful next time.

Butt wiggles,
Solid Gold Dancer

Biggie-Z said...

Dexter, sounds like you had a Great Adventure, but you should know not to worry Momma and Master so much. Seriously, if you're going to wander off, stay close so you can play the Chase Game with Momma and Master. That is much more fun than going on a several mile hike, and a little less tiring. Don't make the RH's brain give out!

Bitey faces,

The Musketeers said...

WOW , if you could send those to me ? haha , just joking . I just love destuffing & destroying stuff . Thats why toys will save me from destroying my human precious furniture (:

Lots of Loves ,

Molly the Airedale said...

Thank goodness the two of you are home safe and sound! No more shennigans, Dexter! Ya hear! WHEW!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh wow, no wonder your momma is cranky with you guys. That sort of thing happens here a lot so D totally knows how your momma feels. Only last weekend Willow & Lucy got out for an hour or so.
Glad someone found you and called your dad. That is pawesome.

Noah x

Unknown said...

Utt Ohhhhh! I dont blame your momma and master for being sore at you! When my guys get out I get so upset it makes me physically sick. So many bad things can happen to a handsome boy like you!

I think a few days of the cute face should soften up the ice queen :wink:

Coco Bean - The Princess said...

Oh my you must have given your mommy & daddy quite a scare!

Sunny,Scooter, (sometimes Jamie) said...

Dexter. Dude. The humans have absolutley zero tolerance on this one. Scooter and Spike,a Frenchie mom used to have(now at the bridge) did this one time and were gone for 14 hours. Mom just nearly died of heart failure.... Trust me on this one. NEVER do that again-you either Mango!!!
Sunny & Scooter

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Don't worry Dexter they will forget soon and everything will be back to normal.. They love you to much to be mad for very long...

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Lindsay said...

Oh, Dexter, we're so glad you're safe! Bad things can happen to doggies on the loose, you know. Your Mom will get over it soon enough, once her heart rate goes back to normal.

(BTW, is RH's heart rate back to normal yet? BOL!)

You were having such fun with that frisbee! We love pictures of you having fun!

Brown dog kisses,

Pee ess Please tell Mango how much The Girl appreciated his comment on our Penelope's Ball post (about people who love doggies being all sparkly).

Eric said...

Oh Bad Boys! Are you still in the nuaghty Corner Nice cute face Dexter ,work it...

wiry wags, Eric x x x

Sami & Baylee said...

I not mad at you but you could of gotten lost, hurt or worse. I am so happy you and Mango are safe back at home. Please don't run out again. I don't think Mommy is nad at you but more upset cause she could of lost you and Mango forever and that is very sad.

We love you! Sami & Baylee

Moco said...

What can you do when the gate ia ajar but go out and explore. Only wussie Foley would stay inside the fence. He is so afraid that he is going to lose Grammie he hardly leaves the house.
Luckily Mango did not have a heart attack. Don't worry hoomans have a short memory and will forget about this is about 3 days.

Allison Walton said...

Well, Dex, sounds like you and Mango had fun. Too bad you gave your Master and Momma a heart attack at the same time! Gus and Waldo like to take their own adventures, too, and I wish I could tell you how worried it makes me. Be nice to your Momma and stay in the yard!!

Sames Blogs said...

BARK!!! You left part of your pack behind? That was not very responsible of you. I learned my lesson when I first came to my pack. I got out and chased some doggies and then had daddy chasing me, until I almost fainted from exhaustion. That was enough for me. BARK! Sasha the Princess

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

OOOOOOOooooooo are are super sized trouble! Not even relentlessly huge trouble! Getting out of the house is a big no no!!! You coulld have totally been hit by a car!

Im glad you guys are safe...and super glad that you had a safe adventure!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

We are glad you two are home and safe. That sounds like it was a fun adventure for you two but a very scary experience for your humans.

Your pals,
Holly & Zac

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Sorry to hear that you got into trouble Dexter, but you really shouldn't have run out of the house all by yourself with Mango. You could have gotten really hurt! But it's all good when you're safely back home...=)

I'm sure your Mom won't be angry with you for long since you're now back safely (and that's what matters,really! *wink*)


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said... Dexter DRAGGED ya outta ur fencie down the street to see Hot Dog?? That sounds like an awful lotta excercise for the RH...I hope you had ur heart pills with ya?

Stan and I are laughin' our BUTTS off that you called Lacie's butt...AMPLE! To say she's not pleased would be an understatement...she's gonna get ya Mango...just give her time!

OK...I know you spelled it out five or six times, but would you PLEASE WRITE TO ME 'XACTLY WHAT I'M SUPPOSED TO BE DOIN' THIS WEEKEND??? Um...I sorta forgot!

Lacie's been hoggin' the puter developin' photos for the pawty...we've been quite remiss bout visitin' bloggies this week...



Toffee said...


Thank goodness you are both okay! My mom says that she would have been mad too. Are you out of the proverbial "doghouse" yet? I hope you can still go to the Howloween pawty in London!?

pee-ess: Yes Riley is a Lobster! I figured it was better to bring lobster than to bring crabs! tee hee I made an HBO funny!

Lady Kaos said...

awww, poor Dexter! I'm not mad at you!!! Mango didn't have to follow you, you shouldn't be blamed for making him run! Blame it on the gate company!!

Sophie Brador said...

My momma would have been so scared if that was me sneaking out the gate and going for a tour of the woods. Too bad your plans changed, but I'm glad you two got home okay.
