So skinny he might blow away

Dex is at that age where no matter how much he eats, he remains a bone rack. I remember when Briggs was this age ... I still fed kibble back then, and I used to just leave the bag open for him to nibble out of whenever he wanted. But only time will pack some mass on this puppy!

I did not

jump up and put two muddy paw prints on your collar bone and knock you on your ass in the field.

That was another bad puppy that happens to look a lot like me.

You believe me, right?

Dexter, the tap-dancing border collie!

Yadda yadda yadda, yadda yadda yadda ...

How'd you like my dance?

He's got legs...


8 months old today!

Today Dexter "helped" me

build my raised beds for the new veggie garden.

He's looking forward to all the tasty things he can steal out of the garden this summer.

We are family VI

In a couple of days Dexter will be 8 months old. He is now almost 40lbs, all legs and ribs and ears. He is just a little bit shorter than Tweed, who is my largest dog. He is much taller than Piper and The WooTWoo.

My "mighty" sheepdog


At least he's good lookin'.

Dexter's mum, Tess

(upper right corner) with her new family.

Doesn't she look fantastic without the 8 parasitic puppies hanging off her all the time? She's finally recovered from that trauma ;-)

Something wicked this way comes

Beware the Dexter.

He's like an evil cartoon of himself.

When you least expect it

Dexter is going to get you for saying Sagan is better looking than he is!

It's not his fault his ears don't match! You made him sad!

The Great Toy Swap

Deter plays with the "margarine lid" (actually Sagan's frisbee)

Sagan plays with the Wootie Toy (actually Ginny's frisbee)

Dexter didn't bring a toy to the party!

Reunited and it feels so good

Here are Dexter, Sagan and Ginny playing with their foster mum, Hilary, who raised them! They all LOVE her and go crazy with joy when they see her :)

Dexter was still kind of a jerk to Sagan for no good reason, but once they were all off leash and started playing, they got on quite well.

This is Dexter

retouched in a faux "HDR" style. What do you think?

The original version from a few days ago:

"Stalker?" What do you mean, "stalker?"

I'm not stalking Piper!

Oh. Hai.

Happy Easter

I tried

to get a photo up yesterday, but I couldn't catch him!

He's totally goofy!
