I'm Dexter!




Welcome to my home page. Yes, I am just a young pup but I think you might like my web site. I will have some pictures of me and my new family some words of wisdom and some great links to Lhasa Apso pages.

I know I am just a pup but there are some things I get a little peeved about such as:

  1. When you run away in the middle of a perfectly good
    leg humping.
  2. Blaming your farts on me....not funny.
  3. Yelling at me for barking....I'M A FRIGGIN' DOG YOU
  4. How you naively believe that the stupid cat isn't all
    over everything while you're gone. (Have you noticed
    that your toothbrush tastes a little like cat?)
  5. Taking me for a walk, then not letting me check stuff
    out. Exactly who's walk is this anyway?
  6. Any trick that involves balancing food on my nose.....
    stop it.
  7. Yelling at me for rubbing my ass on your carpet. Why'd
    you buy carpet?
  8. Getting upset when I sniff the crotches of your
    guests. Sorry but I haven't quite mastered the
    handshake thing yet.
  9. How you act disgusted when I lick myself. Look, we
    both know the truth, you're just jealous.
  10. Dog sweaters. Have you noticed my fur?
  11. Any haircut that involves bows or ribbons. Now you
    know why we chew your stuff when you're not home.
  12. When you insist on picking up the piles in the yard.
    Do you realize how far behind schedule that puts me?
  13. Taking me to the vet for "the big snip", then acting
    surprised when I freak out every time we go back.
  14. The sleight of hand, fake fetch throw. You fooled a
    dog! What a proud moment for the top of the food
  15. Invisible fences. Why do you insist on screwing with

 1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years.  Any separation from you is likely to be painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me.  It is crucial for my well-being.
4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment.  You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.

5. Talk to me.  Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me.  Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

 9. Please take care of me when I grow old.  You too, will grow old.  

 10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please.  Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone.  Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.    

Take a moment today to be grateful for your pets.  Enjoy and take good care of them.  Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without them.

I will write more later but for now here some pictures until I can collect all of my pictures for my picture page.



Dad thinks that this is his chair, Shadow thinks it is his chair but I am here to tell you that possession is nine tenths of the law.

My first visit with Santa.

Welcom to my web page.

It's about time you were listening to me!

Taking it easy on the new couch.

I don't care what they say I didn't do it!

This is me with my human.

That was almost funny.

They call me Doctor Dex!

Aren't we cute?

I am going to ask him to take us for a walk.

Please take us for a walk!

The Rainbow Bridge

Author - an unknown pet owner


Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and contaent, except for one small thing - they each miss someone very special to them, someone who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

The love we have for Dexter is forever, we miss you Dex.
