Tearing around the yard at warp one and chasing geese!His friends at BDC, inspecting the yard, leaving pee-mail and generally bothering Missy whenever he can.

Favorite Toy:

Favorite Food:
Dex loves everything, especially French fries and cheeseburgers.

Favorite Walk:
Dex loves to walk around Lake Phalen or Lake Como. There are things to inspect and always a goose to chase.

Best Tricks:
Dex can open his kennel door, amd he stacks his dishes.

Arrival Story:
My daughter and I went back to the animal shelter where we had gotten Missy just to look at the dogs and walked by the puppy room. Dex was all by himself, as all of his siblings had been adopted earlier that day. He marched up to my daughter and wriggled right into her lap. Well, that was it. He came home with us, much to the disgust of Missy.

Dexter was originally named Charlie when he came home from the shelter, but he never came when we called him. For three days we went through a huge list of names and Dex perked his ears up when he heard the name Poindexter. My daughter softly called: "Dex, come here." And he did. Dex has the distinction of naming himself.

Forums Motto:
Why walk when Warp I will do?

On September 21, 2008, Dexter went to the Rainbow Bridge. He was in his kennel, in the middle of all the family doings and slipped peacefully away on a Sunday afternoon. He'd had a stroke earlier in the week. Grandma says he never was quite the same after Missy crossed the Bridge. She gave him Missy's blankie and wrapped him in it after he was gone. I will miss him. Even though he was bossy...



Santy Paws is coming....

Ohhhh, my tummy hurts.....

I ate all the peanut butter cookies that were cooling on the counter when my family wasn't looking.

I heard my little boy playing with a squeaky toy and tore up all the stuffies I could lay my paws on looking for that pesky squeaker thing.

I left pee mail on the packages under that big green thing. That means they're all mine, right?

I got muddy paw prints on the kitchen floor and Grandma's shirt when I tried to hug and kiss her. The snow is melting here. If Santy Paws doesn't hurry the snow will all be gone.

Oh no!! (looks around guiltily.) Whispers: Do you think Santy Paws saw me? Do you think he won't come now??? Missy's been so good this year, that won't be fair!! Does being bad just for today count??? Oh, Santy Paws, I am so sorry, you can give Missy my presents, but please come for her... Okay???

I'm just going to go lay down over here, my tummy's too full... I'll just be over here for the rest of the day, 'Kay????

Hope Santy Paws is good to you.....

Merry Christmas....

I went gack, good, this summer, it was just too blasted hot to do anything else. Grandma doesn't mind when I do normal dog stuff like chasing the squirrels. It's when I do the clever stuff, like going UNDER the chain link fence or opening the back gate or my kennel or the fridge that I drive her nuts.

Right now, I'm planning on visiting with all my doggie pals in the neighborhood to invite them to a surprise pawty for Missy's birthday. AnytimeI go under the fence, the entire neighborhood KNOWS I'm checking the pee- mail and visiting with my Bad Dog buddies. They help round me up and deliver me to Grandma. Sigh. Grandma's gotten to know the different voices of the dogs around me AND when they're telling me to meet them outside. I've got mixed feelings about that. On the one paw, she gets me OUTSIDE, but on the other paw, she's learning to speak canine....

Anyway, hope y'all had a good Halloweenie and I'lll bark at you soon...
