Just Playing Tennis Ball, That's All

Momma thought I had lost my tennis ball mojo because for some time now I have shown little interest in chasing it.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is that I just don't like bouncing about when it is humid (a fact which she would have sussed out years ago had she not been so fixated on the RH and possibly spared me a thought).

So I made this little movie of me demonstrating that I am one fun loving tennis ball chasing labradog (given the proper weather).

You'll see Misha slinking about in the background. Unlike me, he truly does lack tennis ball mojo.

Oh, the movie is kind of boring, so I added some nice music for you to enjoy. Watch it here or below.

 Dexter done!

P.S. Sorry the music chopped off in such an abrupt fashion. That's what happens when you let YouTube do the dubbing.


  1. First, we SO want your yard. We could have some SERIOUS frisbee action in a yard that size! Second, nice music but we think a nice polka could have definitely added some pizzazz! Heheheh. You are a tennis ball maestro! (And it's about time that your Momma noticed that you aren't a fan of humidity. *sheesh* Is the DOH a tad slow, or what?!?) Finally, what is up with that little Misha dude? While my sister may be a fake doggie with her failing to react to trash-talking squirrels, that Misha doggie should turn in his doggie card, too. What self-respecting, non-Sibe doggie doesn't chase a tennis ball? You need to have a serious chat with that little dude. But we love watching the All-Dexter All-Tennis Balls All-The-Time action!

  2. We truly enjoyed watching your tennis ball skills Dexter!! You are very good at it! Misha...not so much. LadyBug doesn't like toys of any kind. None. We have tried and tried to teach her, but she just has no interest. Unless the toy actually contains foodables! Then....she will not leave it alone! xo Chloe and LadyBug

  3. Wooooooooohoooooooooo go Dexter go! I can see what you mean, Misha is not into it. I find tennis balls all around just too big for my tiny mouth, but I do enjoy spectating while you run around.

  4. What a Labradude! And your yard rocks! It is perfect for tennis ball chasing on a non-humid day :)

  5. That little black blob Misha sure got a lotta video time. Must be because you're such a black blur chasing that ball!

  6. Dexter, you look great chasing that tennis ball. I would be like Mishka...not too interested. Momma is trying to teach me to play but I'm not getting it. I do love watching you do something you love and it is obvious that you are having fun!

  7. You sure had fun chasing that tennis ball. I'm the same way when the weather is all sticky and hot.


  8. Whoooa! You obviously love the tennis ball

  9. What speed! What athleticism! What power!!


  10. You're a champ...no doubt about it. We hate humidity. It's the pits!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  11. I agrees, I want your yard too...nice place fur me to hunt.
    Anyways, maybe you could teach Misha to loves tennis balls...or you could just keeps them all to yourself and then you wouldn't has to shares.


  12. I would soooooooooooo love to play tennis ball with you, Dexter!
    Our mom loved the old timey music!

    Love ya lots♥

  13. Great music...despite the Utubeboob. We think that in time that cocker spaniel might want to join you in the play. Enjoy the yard and the ball.

  14. WOW Dexter you are the KING of Tennis Ball Playing.
    We think that Misha is just learning the VALUABLE skill of Flashy Beast Avoidance.. and doing quite well at it.

  15. That running part looks very fun. I don't get the whole "chasing after something and bringing it back" thing, though. It's just not in my genetic makeup!

  16. Snazzy music. ;) None of my guys play fetch. Maybe you could teach them?

  17. We don't like moving much when it's hot either!!!

  18. Dexter, even we have had humidity here lately! So I don't feel like chasing tennis balls or The Bostons at all. I think you have proven Momma wrong and that you definitely are a tennis ball nut. Ann TBL

  19. Oh Dexter....I'm gonna move in, okays??!! Not only does your Moms have pawfect tenny ball throw action, butts lookie at all the room in your yardie!!! Oh, man, the funs we could have.....
    Ruby ♥
    pees: LOVED the music!!!!

  20. You sure are fast!!! Loved watching you chase after the ball. Loved the music too!!! It perked our ears up!

  21. Oh Dexter...you definitely never lost your Mojo!! Mama says to just come out to our house (we aren't TOOOOO far from the Air Fiona Airport) when it gets too humid in Master-chew-sits!

  22. Wow, Dex. You sure got some tennis ball mojo! Look at you go!!

  23. Flattery would like to give you a run for your money on that tennis ball! She is not like Misha at all!


  24. You know Dexter, I've never really got the whole tennis ball thing. But watching you galumphing around the estate makes me think there might be something in it after all....
    Toodle pip!

  25. September is great tennis ball weather. It's great for pretty much everything!

  26. Hi Dexter,

    Thanks for visiting us at our blog. We scrolled back through yours and can see that you have been busy. (yes we did know about Mango last year and it made us very sad). We really like your map of dogs. Always good to know just who is in the neighborhood. See you soon.

  27. HOwdy Dex, good ball action mate. I'd run with you too if I had the chance. Rory on the otherhand would be relaxing with Misha. NO worries, and love, Stella and Rory
