tall tails Vol. 1

Happy 4th Birthday Dexter Morgan!

Linking up for the first Tall Tails post.

Tall Tails Link Up

Dex was born July 2, 2009 in Northfield, Minnesota. I saw him online and fell in love with him instantly. 

A few days later I was off to make this little boy mine. I was in the middle of a break up.  This little boy helped me through that break-up, kept me company in the cold Winter months, celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas with me. 

Then a few short months later, a super tall man came into our life.  Who knew this man , who wasn't really all about small dogs (dogs under 20lbs) would become the best Papa a pup could ask for. 

I never thought I would be that person that brings their dog with them all the time, but I am. I make sure we can bring Dexter with us before going on a vacation, even if its just for the weekend. I hate leaving him with someone else. and I'm pretty sure he hates it.  This dog is more than a dog to me, he is my life. 
things I like

car rides-water-slushies
being a daredevil-treats-the dog park
eating dinner-big bones
ice cream-being a bedhog-snow

Other things (not pictured) Dexter enjoys are:
-the lawnmower
-chasing rabbits
-french fries
-"pretending to" bury his bone
-cat food

things I really dislike

 pinterest project fails- pool time
bath time-umbrellas
the vet-wearing costumes for holidays-the kennel (which we haven't used since he was 9 months old)

Other things (not pictured) he doesn't like:
-not being around mama or papa all day
-the vaccum
-the bug zapper
-the nail clippers
-mama or papa leaving and not taking him with
-another person/pet receiving attention 
-getting my teeth touched

Dex thanks for always being up for whatever adventures I insist you join. I've had other dogs growing up, but none as wonderful as you. Most days I'd rather stay home with you, than hang out with humans.
