I Love Being Wet by Dexter

Please send good thoughts to the beautiful Minnie Moo. She doesn't blog too much, but every photo of her is a treasure in my book and her liver is acting funny and I am so worried about her.

Our friend Reilly is having another contest and the prize is some of the wonderful hand made cards and other stuff from his mom.

Now we have won these cards before and we also bought some and just loved them and his new contest is right up my alley. You know why? Because he wants to know what his friends like or (gasp) don't like about getting wet.

ARE YOU KIDDING? There is nothing better than getting wet! Well, OK, maybe tennis ball, but what about getting wet AND tennis ball?

OMG! Does it get any better?

Hose water, whatever form it takes, just keep me wet all summer long!

In a pinch I will lounge in the pool. Rain, shine, hot, cold, it doesn't matter... it's WATER!

I even bring my stuffies along to enjoy themselves.

And of course I look totally adorable poolside which always earns extra noms from momma.

Imagine how exciting it is to spot water on our walkies! I am considering a flying dive right off the bridge here. WEEEEE!

LAKE! More swimming!

Only one kind of water I don't like and that is stinky slobber water. Ew! Out of the pool you drooling beast! Blech. I don't want to even put one paw in there. Cooties.

Do you want to play too? It's OK if you don't like the water (although I can't imagine why). Reilly wants you to post about your whole relationship with water. So just click here to see how to enter. You only have until Friday the 13th so make haste.

Dexter done!

P.S. The RH made me post this photo to prove that he likes water for dental hygiene only.

Cowspotdog said...

Now you are a boy that likes getting wet - Mom says the best pic is the one of you poolside - she can see why you get extra noms for that. But what is this - even my hero Mango likes water !!!!!

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

As a labradude, you totally have an edge over the rest when it comes to water loving!

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Ohhh... My mom should totally get on the ball and enter me!!! I love my trips to the creek!!!

You look so cute in the swim Dex!

Unknown said...

It looks like you are having lots of fun Dexter. I am only a fan of leftover water in the tub or in my water dish. My Mom on the other hand seems to love water she is always in the shower or putting her bowls in the sink...humans are strange.

rottrover said...

Hi Pea! You are so very handsome in your cement lake!! Thanks for reminding us about Reilly's contest! We love the water, too, especially Bart!! Yesterday Miss Ruby (dorkette) went too deep in our stream and got carried down a ways. (Just a few feet.) She stayed super cool and just climbed out acting as though nothing had happened. "La, la, la I just love floating downstream..." Silly girl.
Have a fun weekend!

Hey Dexter - way cool - Indy loves water but not as much as you :( You would THINK a labbie would love the water! Indy? Not so much :( But he does love to come out on our boat - except we embarass him to no end by making him wear a doggie life vest. Imagine the horror!

Enjoy the water - that pool looks awesome!

Your friends in the USA,

Diane and Indy Bones

Sue said...

This contest sounds like it was made for us. Thanks Dex and good luck.

Kari in Alaska said...

You should come visit our new house with the big pool!


H Ski said...

Looks like you love the water Dexter. Good thing summer is right around the corner.

Mack said...

I will not get in the pool;
With or without drool.
I will not get in the pool;
I'd rather go to dog obedience school.

Tis for a BT, NOT COOL!

You don't like the water! Your CRAZY about water!

My goodness your Mom should have named your Water! BOL

What BIG teeth Mango has!

Later Dex!

woo woos, Tessa

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Mango has his own version of a water pk:)

We know you were made for the water, Dexter - hope the pool opens next door for you soon. And good luck in the contest.

Dexter, I admire the way your superlab powers allowed you to drown Spiderman. Water and labs, they just go together..Ann TBL

Lexi and Jasper the Danes said...

Hi Dexter,

We just and visited Minnie and sent her get well messages!

You certainly love the water...though we should expect it, you are a labrador :)

I (Japer) would be perfect to enter the competition - I have a very interesting relationship with the water! In brief it goes..."love it, rocks, hate it, like it, beach, love it"

Two French Bulldogs said...

Oh my word you guys are hysterical in that water. Is pee wee half fishy? We will also check out the contests, they look purrrty good

Road Dog Tales said...

Some of us like to be wet, others of us - not so much. BUT, the water lovers here like to get wet on our OWN terms! We'll stand still for baths, but not because we like it!

That's an adorable pic of you by the pool, Dexter!

Marjie said...

There is no good water other than dental hygiene water. Poor Dex is confused.


Pee Ess: Did Momma share?

3 doxies said...

Dats just weird! I thinks I'd rather be in Mango's drool than a pool...bwhahahaha, dat rhymed!

PS: Hope Mango is feeling betters

Molly the Airedale said...

Yup, you are definitely a HUGE water lover, Dexter! More than we are - that's for sure!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Excellent photo essay on your love of water, Pea. For Jed, it depends on whether it's swimming-type water [ok] or pouring rain water [not so much]. Abby is less ambivalent: no, thank you. In fact, she thinks she will melt if she gets rained on. Is that suspicious?

Khady Lynn said...

We both like water! I like to go out in the rain and get soaking wet!

Ha! Mom's laughin at you by the side of the pool. You remind her of a seal show she saw once :P

Great photos of you Dexter :)

Waggin at ya,

Dawn said...

Dexter you are a brave dog! Katie HATES water!!! :) But with all her fur maybe she's afraid she'll sink!

Moose said...

I would have to agree except I am not quite so brave as you about going in over my head. If the planet were suddenly to be flooded so that there was clean shoulder deep water everywhere well then I am in!
p.s. My momma is giggling like a total idiot over your poolside photo. She said that it is one her favorite funny dexter photos. Personally I don't get it but then she is pretty weird. She is still giggling now!

K-Koira said...

We entered the water contest too, then decided to follow some of the other blogs competing!

Minnie-Moo (Rescue Lab) said...

Thank you Dexter! And thank you to everyone who has visited my blog to send good wishes. Really appreciate your kind thoughts.
