Dexter Day - Big News

Don't forget to visit Miss Daisy to see the results of her exciting Halloween costume contest. My dumb brother was a judge.

And watch this movie for some Halloween fun!

As always, I start Dexter day (well, every day) looking for some action. You know me! I am a go go go kind of guy.

Now while some Relentlessly Huge Beasties consider getting furminated to be an actual "activity," I am less than enthused when I see this come out.

To be perfectly honest, I don't really see the problem with leaving my furs in little tumbleweeds around the house and momma is lucky to even get this much out of me before I wiggle so much that she gives up.

Then I usually eat whatever furs she did manage to rob from me (put them back in the system, so to speak).

Look! The torpid beast is totally stoned out. Perhaps there is something that we could do that involves actual movement?

Does this give you a hint you dotty old hen?

OK! I'll just do this for a while and...

Look! The monster has arisen and appears to have hidden my tennis ball in his disgusting mouth. Yuk!

Not to mention that momma's throwing is so bad that she manages to fling my ball over the fence and when she goes to get it the simple beast thinks she is an intruder and gets all confused. Don't believe me? Just watch this movie.


And now for my BIG NEWS! I am super excited because momma told me on Thursday I am getting tutored!

Now, I am not sure what that means, but it sure sounds like that time I had a private agility class for special instructions and got to do the A-frame about a hundred times and got lots of foodables.

Or maybe it is some sort of prep course for the entrance exam into doggie daycare because Momma said that after my tutoring I might get to go there. Is that exciting or what?

Mango here:
Dexter, my boy, you are an idiot. Tutoring? Bah! Let's just say your sleepy photos will look a little different come next Dexter day. Hehehe.

Oh Mango, you are just jelly. Go take some more of your drugs.

Dexter done!

P.S. From Momma. Thanks for all your kind thoughts about Mango. He is feeling much better and I think he can stop the pain medication now. We will be keeping him on the antibiotics and anti inflammatories for a while yet. Keeping him from bouncing while still including him in activities is a challenge.


The Thundering Herd said...

Glad Mango is getting better and glad Dexter is going to get, er, tutored. We have been told you get smarter once you lose those "distractions" anyway.

Mack said...

So glad Mango is doing better. Good luck with the "tutoring" Dexter. BOL!

Achieve1dream said...

How much longer do you have on the Doxy? I bet Mango is sick of taking pills. Glad he's doing better so he can stop taking the pain meds.

Poor Dex is getting 'tutored' . . . does the daycare require it I guess to prevent fighting? I got my boy done young so he wouldn't learn to mark his territory and although he does hike his leg now he still pees all in one spot instead of saving some for later. :D Good luck Dexter.

Gus said...

Good thoughts to both of you.

Hope all goes well with the tutoring.


Tama-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock, Violette, Ollie, Hotesse & Heloise said...

It's THAT kind of tutoring, is it? Hang in there, Dexter!

Heather and Pumpkin said...

Oh I'm glad to hear you are feeling better Mango. I guess after cousin Oliver came to visit your Mommy realized one labradork is enough!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Mango must be a bit addled by those drugs. Watch out for those Tooter things... I still remember the double toot toot thingy. I think it is a trick like that.

Niamh said...

So sorry to see that you have that dog grooming torture implement. It is evil.

I hope that you enjoy your tutoring. If it works, please let me know so we can get some tutoring for Ambrose. Hope you are being kind to your big brother since he hasn't been feeling too well.

Your friend,

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Dexter, Mom says you are going to learn one big lesson when you get tutored - hmmmm, wonder what that means?

We are glad to hear that Mango is doing better, but how you can keep him quiet must be quite the challenge.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hi Dexter, we are happy to hear Mango is feeling well. As for leaving fur balls all over, I agree..whats wrong with day. I find moms hair on my toys sometimes.
Happy Sunday

Smushie Ranch said...

Oh, we're so glad Mango is feeling a bit better! As for the Furminator brush, mom is thinking of getting that for us. She says she could make sweaters for all the kids in Alaska with the fur we shed...

Dexter, good luck with the tutoring! After Gunther was 'tutored', mom said he filled out and got a little lazy.

Stella and Gunther

TwoSpecialWires said...

Dexter! Who did you call a dotty old hen???? And then a few pictures down we see you smiling a smug smile. We're crossing our paws that you won't be regretting anything. Think of the hand that feeds you AND supplies you with your tennis balls.

We're glad to hear that Mango is feeling better and doesn't seem to be in so much pain. We'll cross our paws it stays that way.

Love ya

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

"Tutoring", huh? Hmmm. You might want to see if you can skip out on that. At least, maybe, they'll give you good sleepy drugs like the RH is hooked on... Anyway... Um, good luck with that tutoring.

The Army of Four said...

I'm VERY happy to report that we sent our mom a mind-meld message and she sent our FURminator to our aunt to use on our fur-cousins!!! SUCCESS!
PS: Don't worry, Dex - my brothers have been tutored, too, and said it was no big deal.

Scout and Freyja said...

Dex, losin' you's "boys" is no big deal an' you will still be all "boy" an' won't be no sissy!

Ziggy Stardust said...

Dexter, Good luck with the tutoring. I don't know what that is either. Do you have to wear the toot-toot for tutoring? I am glad the Mango is better. Dexter you are a very handsome boy(blush)!

licks and sniffs Sasha

Martha said...

Hi Dexter, we love to be furminated! Well you know we girls like to look our best.
We watched the video and we could see how Mango might be confused.
After all he wouldn't be expecting your momma to be over the other side of the fence.
You have her well trained to fetch the ball though - did that take long?
We can see you don't like to called Pee Wee!!!!
Good luck with the tutoring and tell Mango to be careful with his ouchie.
love and kisses

ScrapsofMe said...

Mango, it's good to see you up and about and feeling better, if a little loopy. Barkin at the Momma? Anyways, stay relaxed and let yer leggie heal up really good. New Years is coming and I need a date that knows how to DANCE. Dexter is being tutored huh? Oh My. Maybe it will help him focus more in agilities?

Stella said...

Hey PeeWee, how come you are going to Doggie Day Care? You and Mango just not getting along?

I think when your Mom said Tutors she meant New Ters, which Ludo can tell you all about.

I am happy to hear Mango is better and hope he improves daily.

Take care, PeeWee, and Good luck!


Puglette said...

dex, i hope your tutoring is all you hope for. charlie's dad wants mango's mom to know that he takes tramadol too. he also says to remind mom that if she forgets to give it to you on time you will feel extra yucky. :o(

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

Oh Dexter...I had such a fab time in the BARN (upper story)last night after trickertreating and my five other dates...the candlelight tour you gave me was amazing...and those pancakes with the real maple syrup were delish this morning...oh my!!!

Now, Dexter, have your bags packed by Wednesday...I will be picking you up since you are moving here permanantly. Frankly, I don't blame you....threatening to get rid of you jewelry display is disturbing to say the least...

I didn't know you don't like to be called Peewee...

As for the RH in that dog, does he always talk that much? When he and I have gone on a date he barely sez a word...course it might be hard for him to get a word in edgewise...tra la la la la la....

Where will you be sleeping when you move here? I don't think ur gonna fit in my crate...perhaps you can have Stanley's??? Let me know...

I'll be talkin' to ya...keep ur cell on...


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


Glad to hear ur feelin' better, Peewee's gonna be gone all day Thursday? Want Stan and me to come up to keep ya company???

What Lacie? Who's moving here???

Sheech...nobody tells us nuthin'...


Asta said...

Ummm, just keep thinking about how much fun you'll have getting tootowed,ummI'm suwe it will be fun, gulp, I mean yipee.

I'm so glad that Mango is feeling bettew

smoochie kisses

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

Dexter I's telling you, run, run away now!!
Member when I had my new ters, I never got any ters at all and for some reason I had to wear a cone and had some pain 'down below'. It not a good thing!
~lickies, Ludo

Astrid Keel said...

Dexter, I am afraid to tell you that the Relentlessly Confused is not at all confused about your tutoring...! BOL!
And I gotsa say, Mango, that you are right to be wary of Mommy imposters! They are EVIL!!!


Marjie said...

Hey, Dude, no dissin' the furminating! We relentlessly huge folk require contemplation time for all activities. And I have heard that tutoring is not that much fun, so maybe you should hide from that, Dude! Tell your pal not to hop around too much on those front legs. My humans tell me that hopping's not good for Large and Wonderful folk such as us.

Drools and well wishes for both of you,

Unknown said...

Hey Dexter -- I have to say that I am with the Mango: I love getting groomed -- I go into a sort of trance standing there,,,

and hey! You're getting the big Op, huh? Don't worry -- I hear that it's not such a big deal for boys as it is for girls... it's the human males are usually suffer a problem because they see their dogs as a reflection of themselves and their male pride! Hee! Hee!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Dexter!
Do you eat your own fur?? Hmmmm... interesting...
Glad to know Mango is doing much better.
I am sure everything will go well with your "tutoring"!
Kisses and hugs

wally said...

Oh Mango. I am delighted to hear you are feeling better and to hear about your brudder's upcoming private tutoring lessons. If he does well perhaps he will get to wear one of those satellite dishes around his neck.

wally t.

Agatha and Archie said...

Our main man,We are thrilled you are feeling abit better. We have been crossing our paws and legs so tightly that Archie sort of fell down the stairs once (because he couldn't walk) so I will tell him we can sort of relax them a little) Arch wants to tell Dex that he can come here on Thurs and lay low.... then we will drive him back and no one will know the differnace.. maybe.. Love A+A

Unknown said...

Hi Dexter - put it this way pal, very soon you'll be jumping higher and barking in a higher voice!

Mango - remember I told you I thought I saw you in the Meatpacking District on the way to the dog run? Well yesterday, I saw the same lady with TWO of you! Again with blonde highlights!!! You're MULTIPLYING before my very eyes!

Your pal,


Minnie-Moo (Rescue Lab) said...

Hey Dexter,

Good luck with the "tutoring" on Thursday!

And Muzzle says, talking of balls ... yes, get your momma to buy you a ball on a rope (I like the rubber ones the best) and she will find it much easier to throw it further. Muzzle is terrible at throwing but does a good job when things are on a rope. So we have a few balls on a rope, Air Kongs on a rope, dummies with a toggle etc. :-))

Glad Mango's ouchie is a bit less ouchie. Has your momma heard of Synflex? Muzzle says it's really good stuff.

We love the video :-)

PeeEssWoo: Glad woo are feeling better - are woo ready to thai the slaw yet?

Sam said...

Sorry I missed your last post about Mango. I saw it and meant to comment, but it's been busy here being that it was our first trial weekend. Glad to hear he's feeling better.

And woohoo Dexter - agility tutoring is a LOT of fun!!!

BRUTUS said...

Good to hear that Mango is getting back to his relentless normal self. But Dexter, I hate to tell ya buddy. The tutoring isn't all it's cracked up to be... Let's just say you might be sitting a little shorter soon (can you say pancake?)...

Dexter, that tutering is not so bad, you still will be all man!!

Maxmom said...

Hey there Dexter
Listen bud..we are thrilled that the Mango is half-recovered! It makes a big difference in our world! But beware...those Vets go nuts with the torturing!
We'll be thinking of you and your new it a 'face lift'!

Joe Stains said...

ooooh Dex, tutoring, wow um, good luck. This is one session you won't soon forget. YOUCH.

Glad to see Mango is doing better.

Cinnamon and Mint said...

Only such a little amount of fur came out when you got farminated, Dexter? That's less than what you can get with a single stroke of a furminator on Cookie!

Tutoring sounds exciting!! Can't wait to hear all about it.

Glad to hear that Mango is getting better.

ocmist said...

SOOO GLAD you are doing better, my Humongus friend! When the "king" is down, all his followers are "down," too! OC

Hey, Dex... I'm thinking that your "tutoring" is the same as my "attitude adjustment..." Mom thinks my adjustment was a good thing, but I wasn't too happy with it at first... No... NOT HAPPY at ALL!!! She's already talking about "adjusting Gimli and Pippin's attitudes" in the next couple of months sometime. BG

Molly the Airedale said...

We're so glad to hear that you're feeling better, Mango! Listen to your momma - no running!
How exciting that you're getting agility tutored, Dexter! We can't wait to hear more about it!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Noah the Airedale said...

Mango Mama, we're very glad to hear Mango is feeling better.
Dexter mate, we could have tutored you. We know stuff. If you need any help or if your tutor isn't up to scratch you let us know ok.

koko said...

Glad to hear the relentlessly huge is getting better... and happy tutoring, Dexter.

Licks, hero

Tobi said...

Oh poor Dexter. He thinks this "tutoring" is going to be fun but I'm afraid he is going to find out that it's not so much fun at all. I do however like the sassy-ness you exhibited towards the end of your post. Sometimes being called Pee-Wee long enough makes you a little sassy.

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Hey guys, I have a Furmanator too. I love it. Mom says that it pulls PUPS out of me. hehehe

Life With Dogs said...

Oh Mango, can't you let Dexter dream just a little? ;)
I was buried in work last week and missed that ouchie post. Very glad to see things have taken a turn for the better!

monica said...

Oh Goodness both of you are absolutely scrumptious on pics!! Love it !

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

Dexter...did you get your suitcase outta the attic yet? Pack your balls too...(oh my...Lacie dissolves into giggles...I mean you tennis balls...I was just thinking that you and Scruffy may need extra...Lacie actually blushes...a rare occurance...)

Sheesch...I think I'm gonna go pop the tab on my Coke zero and chill for a while...


Sames Blogs said...

BARK! Hey handsome, we just read about your owie. I am surprised you cry so much. I thought a big guy like you would be a silent hurter like the princess. But then you get goodies faster. Maybe I should learn from you. Hope you feel better soon. By the way, how old are you? Mommy thinks I am around 9 years old now. She keeps saying I am an old lady. Hmmpph! Bark! Sasha the Princess

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Mango and Dexter,
Yes, We love to look at old pictures. It keeps everything fresh in our minds. I don't feel all our animals that have passed on
are gone, they are just in another
dimension. I think I can feel them around me,when I am out in the yard. I love that feeling!!!!
Love you, Bambi and Fern

Good to hear Mango is doing better.

Oh my Dexter good luck with the tutering lol.

Fenway said...

I'm glad you're feeling better, Mango, and getting back to your enjoying your hugeness!

Methinks Dexter has no idea what tutoring entails. Yes, he'll get lots of treats for Being A Good Boy, but he will have to work HARD!

Your pal,

Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

Glad to hear Mango man is better.

Dexter be glad all the grooming you get is that furminator....We have furminator that is electric and it wisks all your hair off.

Hey next week you will be able to be in the tutored club! Can't wait!

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo

Moose said...

Tutoring sounds like fun so I asked momma if I could do that too. Get this, she said I already was tutored! I guess this is as smart as I will ever be. She said to get some time in with the ladies because they will never look the same again! Get some good licks in too because that will never be the same! Doggie day care will be wicked fun though so all in all it is probably worth it!

Kelly said...

I am so glad to hear Mango is feeling better!
Now Dexter, honey... I don't think your mom really said 'tutoring'. You may have mis-heard her. I suggest you play sick.

Anonymous said...

I suspect this tutoring will be one of the most important lessons you will EVER learn in life! But it will be one of those lessons that you can't learn unless you've experienced it. sigh. Your tutoring will make you very smart -- almost as smart as The Mango Man! Oh Yeah!

Luda said...

Hey, Dexter-

There must be sumthang wrong with yoo if yoo don't like Mama brushings. Mama brushings are the bestest kind of brushings.

Wen my deerly departed Goldendog brother Zeus wuz a baby dawg, he yoosed to eet his brushings too. That jest must be a weerd retreever dawg thang.

Watch owt so yoo don't git a hareball.

Yer pal,

Coco Bean - The Princess said...

WHOA! Dexter your going to get tutored!? So your momma has decided to "slip you into neutral" huh?

My mommy had that done to her chocolate lab and he got smarter and stopped jumping the fence!

Good Luck!

Oskar said...

Oh Heavens, uh, Dexter, I hope that your "tutoring" is more fine than mine was.
