Dull Dexter Day

Dexter day was super dull around here due to Momma's back still hurting her. She hasn't walked me in three whole days and we missed agilities yesterday and I am BORED. Here is what I did today.

Asked Momma to come out and play.

After she tottered out, asked very nicely if she would toss my football for me.

Chased my football (even though she can't throw it very far).

Let the beastie bitey me.

Ate rabbit poop.

Tried to put my entire head in the beastie's mouth (almost passed out from Mango breath in the process). If you biggify this picture you can see all the dirt and grass that he keeps fermenting in his mouth and jowls. Yuck!

Had a chewie.

Worked in the vegetable beds.

Drank some water.

Taught some advanced dance moves to the beastie (notice back leggies crossed just so).

Stood around in the yard.

Pretended to nap.

Momma says she is feeling much better, so I think all the good vibes are helping, but the feel better pills make her super tired so she is no fun to be around. Sigh.

Dexter done.

Hi, Dexter!
It does not look like a boring day to me!
Maybe you could not go out for walkies but sure you had lots of things to do at home!
Glad to know your mom is feeling better.
Kisses and hugs

We hope your Mom is feeling better real soon! I do lots of pretend napping on days when Mom refuses to entertain me, too. At least you got some fun playtime in!

It's hard on a guy with so much energy to have to put up with an uncooperative and unenergetic human. We know -- we have Jan.

Martha said...

Hi Dexter
You seem to be keeping yourself amused!
Loving the dance moves you are teaching Mango.....
He is so graceful.
Hope your mom's back gets better soon.

Niamh said...

Oh dear! Standing around and then pretending to nap are no fun. Hope your momma feels better soon so you can get back to doing your walks and agility! Be careful about putting your head in Mango's relentlessly huge jaws. What if he shut them and you couldn't get your head out.

Your friend,

Gus said...

we hope the Mango Mamma feels better soonest. Lots of good vibes being sent your way. Love the dance moves you are teaching Mango Man. Hope he doesn't throw his back out.


Mason Dixie said...

So sorry you had a boring day, it looked like a full day to me though.=)

Golden Samantha said...

For a boring day, you score lotsa points for filling up the day! Love the dance lessons and interractions with Mango! Very entertaining you both are!
Hugs xo

Dexter! I'm going to have to read back and find out what your mom did to her back. I sure hope it's better soon.

Thanks for the award!!! Can you believe my mom has finally gotten around to grabbing it from your bloggie. Boy, she's been a rotten mom lately. Just so lazy. She just sits around and reads all the time. She says it's called grading papers and that she just did 160 of them, but it looks pretty darn easy to me. Sometimes, she doesn't even get out of her jammies to do it, and then she whines about run on sentences and stuff, and then I say, well mom, let's run on to the park right now, and then she says, no Sophie, that's not what I mean, and then I say, well then what did you say run for if you didn't mean run to the park. She's just so weird and frustrating. Can I come to your house and put my head in the beast's mouth too?

I'm glad your momma is feeling better!

Tank woo fur sharing all your boring DexterDay stuff!

PeeEssWoo: Do woo think Lacie's butt khould fit in Mango's marvelous mouth?

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Fiona here (I've suckered my Mom into typing for me) - I think eating rabbit poop is the PERFECT way to spend a day - especially if one can chase the rabbits first, THEN eat the poop when Mom isn't looking! Hope your Mom feels better soon - and don't feel bad, my Mom throws like a girl, too. (And can't throw a Frisbee At. All. What do they teach people these days? Sheesh.)

Amber and Nala said...

What a day...doesn't look boring to me! That picture of you and Mango with his fermenting grass mouth is cute. :) Glad your Momma is feeling a little better.

Oh boy Dex, I'm sorry to hear momma hurt her back!

I hope she's less loopy tomorrow from her meds and can run around with you again.

xo :)

Koobuss said...

Ah, Dexter!

! feel so sorry for your mom. She's having even less fun than you are. We hope that she feels better soon.
Make sure you and Mango give her lots of kisses. Well, maybe not Mango, at least until he washes his mouth out. Hehehe

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Suzuki said...

It looks like you had a furry busy day Dexter!
Big licks to you

Hi Dexter! You ate rabbit poop? Cool! I'm glad your mom's back is feeling a little better.

Lots of licks, Dexter

the magic sleigh said...

Woooo Dexter! That sounds like a busy day fro me, so sorry you had to miss dog school, my school is closed for the month of April due to the fair at the fairgrounds...
Hope you Mommy feels better soon, be nice to my Mango, he is such a sweetie.

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

I love the photos of you playing with and trying to teach Mango dance moves, Dexter! You two always look like you have so much fun together!


Unknown said...

I don't know.. you seemed to keep yourself busy. Hmm I could always come over and play bitey face -chase me. I could keep you busy for hours.


Brind'Amour Clumbers said...

WOW, that day didn't look boring at all. I mean, you got to eat rabbit poop and got to work in the garden. That would be enough for me to call it a worth while day!


The Oceanside Animals said...

hello dexter its dennis the vizsla dog hay wow yoo ar verry brayv putting yore hole hed in yore brothers mowth!!! if i tried that with tucker he wood probly aksidently on purpose bite my hed off!!! ok bye

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

no---we do not know this game "Bitey face" but we like saying it. bitey face bitey face bitey face--HAHAHAHAH

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

You be some sort of crazy daredevil trying to get Mango's head in your mouth!
~lickies, Ludo

Moose said...

honestly dexter, your dexter days are always getting shorted it seems like! If only some pup had not made your momma all gimpy! Glad she is feeling better though so you can get back to walkies and agilities and I guess it will be good if Mango gets his move practice again, though it looks like you are pitching in with the dance lessons!
We would love to have another labrapal but the moose lodge is nothing like your estate! It is much smaller (maybe even smaller than your barn!) so it is pretty tight. Plus it is not good being outnumbered by labradogs, it can leave one on their back taking feel better pills all the time!

Hi Dexter!
I'm sorry your day was dull, but it still looks like you managed to have some fun! I hope your mom is feeling better real soon!

Jeesh Dex, that is a dull day?! BOL I am glad to hear the backie is feeling better. Those are soooo bad! Also, I just wanted to point out that when you were trying to stick your head in Mango's mouth, it kinda looks like you are sitting down hugging him!! BOL Brotherly love, right?

Thank you so much for the award! I will have to get mommy on that right away. She's been running around buying stuffs in plastic bags for me to sniff saying she needed new furs to wear to work. Funny how hoomans change their furs, I always am in black!!

Poor Dexter - but remember you won't get any good walkies until that back is really better. Cute way you have of sitting on your bottom while putting your head in MangoMan's mouth.

Tail wags, the OP Pack

Chef said...

Sorry to hear about your mommy's back... what d'ya do to her? I'm alwasy impressed by Mango's cavernous mouth. There must be a whole other universe going on in there. Next time you put your head in, Dex, take some pictures and show us what happening in there, k?


Minnie-Moo (Rescue Lab) said...

That looks like a fun day - and lovely garden you have, lots of room to play :)

Muzzle can't throw things very far either - she says balls/airkongs on a rope are easier to throw a good distance!

We're glad your mum is feeling a bit better :)

We're not brave enough to bigify that photo ...


Lacy said...

w00f's, looks like u had a fun day Dexter, and me hopes ur mamas back gits better soon..

b safe,

Joe Stains said...

So I biggified that photo to look inside the relentlessly huge mouth and the first thing I thought of was Michael Strahan. You ever hear of that football dude?? The resemblance is uncanny!! Sorry you are bored dude.

Woodrow, Luna, MJ Campanella said...

Poor Dexter - My mommy can play right now either - and neither can Woodrow - they were in a car accident and are getting better on the couch - luckily i have MJ to torment in there absence.


Peanut said...

Hmm that day doesn't seem so dull to me. Peanut ferments things in his jowls also. It's gross

Hey, Mango Man,

I’m so sorry to hear about your Mom’s hurt back! That’s what happened to my Mom and it got really bad. She was even in a wheelie chair for a few months and she still has to use a cane for stairs... (we have ramps at our house for both her and my mama.) That’s also why she doesn’t go to work anymore and has been working on those disagility retired mints papers.

That’s also why Mama learned to bring things to her and why she is teaching me how to be a helper dog, too.

Mom says to tell your Mom that she is praying for her and that she is sure that she will be up and around soon, but that she sympathizes with her a lot!

At least you have a big old moving chew toy in Dexter to play with.

Hey, Dex, rabbit poop is pretty good, though not quite as tasty as goat poop, ripe squirrels or rabbits, and horse hoof trimmings! Never tried cow trachea before... BG

wally said...

Oh I'm so behind and didn't even know about your momma's back. I hope she is feeling better soon.

That photo of you putting your head into Mango's mouth is one of my favorite pictures of ALL TIME.
