So many friends who are sick or have sick family members that I am almost afraid to mention them lest I leave somebody out. I am sending good thoughts and visiting your blogs, but I thought maybe some "business as usual" is in order to cheer everybody up.
Today was DEXTER CONE LIBERATION DAY! But before I get to that...
Yesterday it rained all day..... INSIDE! Yup, the roof over the porch sprung a leak. Momma and Master said it was better to let it drip (well, actually pour) since it was in a part of the house scheduled for demolition anyway and if they redirected the water it might go into a finished part instead which would be very bad.
I wasn't bothered until the water went into the smoke detectors and they started beeping. That freaked me out! Hopefully things will dry out today and Jarrod and Mickey can finish the roof tomorrow.
Even though I still have to wear my cone when Momma is not around to watch me, I have been cleared to engage in my usual activities.
To celebrate, momma brought out two brand new tennis balls! Boy was I ever ready after almost two weeks without any tennis ball action!
Still have the moves, though. Here is my over the shoulder catch (because I can run faster than the DOH can throw).
My favorite is when she throws it really high and I get to watch it. I feel like an outfielder for the Red Sox!
Got it! Excuse the blurry photos because I am TOO FAST for some photographers.
Oh, here is the Relentlessly Huge "playing" with his new tennis ball. Notice the keen, intelligent expression on his face... NOT!
Good to see that my firm buttocks have maintained their shape during my time of inactivity.
But of course you want to see me in action, right? So click here for the cone liberation day movie.
We also got our nommy bones which I couldn't manage with the cone. I think Mango got almost an entire buffalo.
Do you like my chewing style? I like to combine front and back end workouts.
Hey, I am just an athletic kind of guy.
Our next door neighbors are dog sitting for a really hot blond gal. I met her on walkies and she asked if she could come over to play. I said, sure, but momma said no because some Relentlessly Huge monsters do not know how to act like gentlemen around the gals.
He is such a total doofus. He thinks that every girl dog around finds the Mango irresistible. Don't believe me? Click here to see him making an ass of himself declaring his love for the neighbor dog.
Overall, a pretty fun Dexter day. I capped it off with a nap in the dog cave. If I sleep where I can be seen, then I don't need that dumb cone.
