A little while ago Ginny's mum suggested I enter a photo in the NTI Global contest running on the DogSport Magazine Facebook page. They're looking for a new face to advertise their products, and after some deliberation, I decided to enter this face:
I chose this photo because I figured they'd get a million sport-specific entries, and because this photo is high resolution, and it shows his keen intensity, but would be easy to manipulate in photo software to eliminate or change the background when necessary.
I entered it in the contest and then thought no more of it, until today when I learned that not only had Dexter's photo made it into the top 100 submissions entered, but then into the top 10 photos chosen by NTI from all the submissions. Go Dexter!
You can help Dexter win by voting on the Facebook page. I think you'll have to become a fan or "like" DogSport magazine on Facebook to cast your vote. But wouldn't it be cool if Dexter was the new canine face of NTI Global? If you're on Facebook, and you have a free moment, we'd appreciate your vote! I win a tunnel from NTI if he wins, and that's a nice bonus, but mostly I just want to see a rescue dog advertising their agility gear.
Go Dexter Go!

It's hard to believe that this little peanut
Is now this handsome young adult!
Who knew he'd turn out so darn well? And so good lookin' too :)
He is now one year old, 40lbs and almost 23" at the shoulder. He's a lean machine, full of heart, full of try, and full of wonderfully, snuggly love. He's turning into a FANTASTIC dog, and I'm looking forward to many more years of discovery with my GiraffeDog!
Happy Birthday to ALL the Peanuts Gang - Ace, Ally, Cricket, Gin, Hoot, Paddy and Sagan.
Thanks to all of you for sharing this journey with us. I'm not going to be posting daily, or even quasi-daily updates anymore - this is it. From time to time, I will throw up an update, or a photo I particularly like, and for the next few days I will be posting new photos of Dex's siblings so you can see what everyone looks like now ... but if you want to continue to see Dex on a regular basis, you'll have to visit him, and the rest of the gang, at Wootube.
Estar Bien ... y Feliz Cumpleanos Dexter Morgan y la familia!!
Tt's been a great year! Don't forget to come see us all at Wootube :)

He is still jumping up to stand on stuff.
My neighbours stood up this old pallet to practice knife throwing (don't ask).
It's been there for a couple of weeks. We walk past it maybe 4 or 5 times a day on walks. Dex has always ignored it, but today, he decided to jump up on it.
Now keep in mind, at NO TIME did I ask him to do this. I was just walking along with all 8 dogs and he threw himself up there.
He misjudged and ended up throwing himself over the other side.
So he came back around and tried again:
The end result?
He still regularly jumps up on the trampoline on his own volition too.
Does anyone else have a puppy that just jumps up on things as high as your head? Or is it just mine??

Yesterday we got to visit with sister Ginny
Today we got a lovely update on brother Hoot.
We just love having a big extended family to keep in touch with!
Almost as much as Dexter loves swimming! (okay, maybe that's a stretch)
He doesn't really *love* swimming yet, but he is regularly doing it. The love part will come later on, I hope!
