Celebrating Slobber Day - a photo essay

Sherman and Leroy's Slobber Day Celebration!

Once again, it is time for slobber day, sponsored by Sherman and Leroy.

The truth is, that yours truly, well, I just don't slobber. Subsequently, momma has been attempting to stage a slobber photo as in this one where she is withholding my breakfast.

Momma! Please! Breakfast!

But we both agreed that was not only a bit mean, but also not in keeping with the spirit of slobber day. A day which is all about embracing the glorious slobbering abilities of the talented doggies with impossibly wet jowls.

My primary experience with slobber is having it placed on my person by the Relentlessly Huge.

I often felt like the RH's facecloth.

But I bow to his superior abilities to generate a never ending supply of the stuff. 

Thus, I give you:

Remembering Mango
The King of Slobber

The subtle foam.

The suds machine.

The artful placement.

The partially frozen stringer.

The blowing in the wind with lipstick.

The toxic water bowl.

The full facial.

The debris collector.

We all miss The Mango. Yes, even me (sometimes). And while most of the time momma is happy not to have to be cleaning up all that slime and goo I think that sometimes she'd relish slobbery walls, ceilings, guests, clothing, and labradudes if it meant having her big old Bubba back.

Dexter done!


  1. OH YESSSSSSSSSSSSsssssssssssssss we ALL adored and MISS his STRINGS of Slobber and Suds.

  2. All of this slobber in the blog world is making our Mom very happy that we don't slobber, and she's not very keen on slobber. However, we can all appreciate the RH's slobber from afar (and apparently it would have to be quite 'afar' it Mom didn't want to get hit with it - the RH definitely had some range and amplitude on his slobber distribution!)! However, since WE are dogs, we can truly appreciate the photo of the RH with the slobber strings blowing in the wind and the lipstick out - so much that made the RH great all captured in one photo!

  3. Hey Dexter!
    Wow, you were a real sport to allow the foodable withholding! BOL Oh, I do miss the MangoSlobber. He was definitely the master. The debris collector is a favorite, but I also admit to really enjoying the pix of you wearing it. Thanks for the chuckle and the memories!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Pol Comm

  4. Hi Dexter,
    Totally appropriate post reminding us all of the great RH.
    We are not worthy.
    Toodle pip!

  5. We are not masters of slobber either Dex, however we certainly appreciate the Mangos slobberiness. Especially when its in your Kindgom and not ours.

  6. Howdy Dex. Yep, he was the King of Slobber for sure. A big hunk of slimy slobbery love. Relentlessly slobbery, oh yeah. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  7. Dexter, that was a really nice tribute. I miss Mango too, but I am glad that you don't have to be covered in slime any more. It is kind of gross sometimes. I do think it is mean for your Momma to make you wait for breakfast just so she could get a drool picture. I hope you got some extra for that or the authorities may have to be notified.

    Loveys Sasha

    p.s. Mango had the most beautiful and sad eyes

  8. OMC! We forgot about how slobbery Mango was. The King of Slobber! He wore it well. :)

  9. Withholdin' the foodables????!! Holy crap Dex!!! Yups, that's just not right! Butts, it sure did produce some impressive strings there!! Wows, Ma thought that I had some impressive siree Bob!!! Mango was the Master at the foam!! BOL Oh, I miss the guy....{{{hugs}}}
    I loves your slobber Dexter!
    Ruby ♥

  10. Your long drool counts for something, Dexter. We do have to say that Mango was the king of slobber! We loved the pictures!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  11. Mango is truly the master of slobber, that froth action he has going on in the one picture cracks me up! I think you did a pretty good job with the slobber Dexter, even if you did have to wait for your food for a little bit! Thanks for joining in on the slobber fun!

  12. What a great post Dexter! We don't slobber either which Mommy is very thankful for.

    It was great seeing pictures of the King of Slobber once again. He is missed!

  13. What wondewful pictoowes of the king of slobbew! Mango was pawtastic and we all miss him..Mommi wemembews going to meet him and weawing a silly wain pncho to pwotect fwom the slobbew, but I know she wouldn't mind if it got on hew best dwess, just to have Mango back again
    smoochie kisses

  14. Great slobbers!

    Stop on by for a visit

  15. I think you surely merit Honorable Mention on Slobber Day, just for having been brother to the King of Slobber himself. And, while Momma surely adores her Labradude, I'm certain she'd endure years more slobber cleanup to have Mango back. I empathize with her.

  16. Let me just say, before anything else, that withholding breakfast is mean, cruel punishment!!!

    Whew, with that said, we remember the slobbery pictures of both you and Mango and, in our eyes, no one will ever come close to Mango's abilities with slobber!

  17. We miss Mango too. We've followed this blog (Well, Mango's blog actually) for almost as long as its been around, but only off and on as our interest in blogs came and went. We were surprised then when we checked back on one of our Interested-In-Blogs-Again cycles and discovered he was no longer with us. :(

  18. OMD! What a trip down memory lane! Your big huge brudder was really something Dex.

    And yes, the with-holding of breakies is horrible!!!

  19. much fluid from a dog, how can it be? Dexter, you are a contender.
    Mango would be PROUD!
