A Sad Goodbye and a Slumber Party (with action video)

Our hearts are breaking. Brutus, the Relentlessly Huge puppy, and our pal, made a sudden journey over the Rainbow Bridge. Run free, little one. You can visit his family here

Sweet Brutus, how much your family loved you. How much they miss you.

My human sissy and brother-in-law recently relocated back to the homeland of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

This means that when they want to go gallivanting about, my nephew, Misha, comes for a sleepover.

I'm not bothered. He's a fine little chap and generally keeps to himself.

Problem is, that he is very difficult to photograph. Not only is he all black, but his configuration tends to obscure his front from back and more often than not he looks like a pile of laundry misplaced on the floor.

Is he pointing north or south?

We've enjoyed a nice visit and it is certainly a relief to have a backup intruder alert. Momma helped me make a video of our slumber party. Enjoy it here or below.

Dexter done!


  1. We were very sorry to hear that the Bridge has called another of us.

    OMD Misha is Marvelous... Is he going to be joining a Choir now that he has relocated him mom and dad to the homeland?

  2. Oh, how sad to lose one as a puppy! *sniff*

    It looks like Misha is very good backup, even if he has Fabio locks that make it hard to tell which end you're sniffing!


  3. What a fun pawty dat was!


    The Rainbow Bridge has been a busy place lately. We're on the way over.

  4. It is a very busy place the rainbow bridge ...... we need to close the gates fr a while

  5. We are glad that Misha is spending time with you - we think he could probably learn to help the DOH with the dusting?? We can't tell his top from his hindmost either.

    gus n teka

  6. Brutus is breaking my heart, so I can only imagine how his pack must feel. Thanks for the Misha cuteness to cheer us!

  7. I went and left a messgae fur Brutus' family! So heartbreaking.

    And Misha...hehehehe...dat be why I calls my brudder and sissy Blobs. It's a shame they ain't perfect to foto like me and you Dex.


  8. So sorry to hear about Brutus - his family must be heartbroken!

    Love this video! Misha cracks me up - sliding against the floor like that and doesn't even care!

  9. Wow, I'm so sad to hear about sweet Brutus! It's always so hard to lose a furiend.
    OMD, Misha does look like a pile o' laundry! BWAR HAR HAR I think the direction is definitely North. BOL
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  10. Oh Dexter, we are so sorry to hear about your young friend Brutus. Gail and I would like to pass on our best wishes to his family.
    But on the subject of Misha, i must say that I do not like to see a noble dog being used as an item of housecleaning equipment...
    Toodle pip!

  11. Bwahaahaa! What a character that Misha is!

    So sorry to hear about Brutus.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  12. Howdy Dex, we're sorry to hear about little Brutus too. He was just so lovely.
    Glad you had fun with Misha. Mum says how come I, Stella, don't look so well groomed? Oh yeah, she's lazy and never brushes me that's why! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  13. Mom has been thinking about poor baby Brutus all day long. It's so sad.

    Dustmop Misha is too funny!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  14. Rainbow Bridge has to be getting a bit crowded. So very sad to hear that some one had to say good bye to a young pup.
    Misha has a set of lungs. Looks like there was lots of fun times together. Loved the housework part.
    Hugs and nose rubs sent to ya Dexter

  15. He looks like a piece of laundry on the floor? BOL! What did Misha think of that description?

    Glad you have a buddy nearby!

  16. Dexter - you're the best! Dad just got home from a ridiculously long day at work, read your post, and laughed out loud. Thank you - he needed a laugh. When he laughed out loud, that prompted mom to read your post too, and she laughed out loud too. They especially liked the part in the video where Misha is doing "Housework". Here, we call that "spin the puppy" - of course it only works on hardwood floors.


  17. We are very sorry to hear about your friend Brutus and will stop by to visit his family. Your friend Misha is silly!! She does look like laundry...BOL! xo Chloe and LadyBug

  18. Oh, I am so sorry abouts Brutus!!! What a cutie.
    I loves Misha!! She is one funny chick! I thinks you can tell North from South by the wiggily nub....
    Ruby ♥

  19. So very sorry about Brutus!

    You and Misha are just too cute!!!!

  20. We are so very sorry Brutus had to already go to the Rainbow Bridge. That doesn't seem very fair at all. But he sure was loved a lot while he was here. I bet the RH is showing him all the best places to do slobber art.

    Dexter, it sure looks like you had a Most Wonderful time with your nephew. And it's was very much considerate of him to even do housework during his visit!
