It is with great sadness that I report to my fellow bloggers that Dexter the dalmatian was designated for assignment
on Friday after 11 wonderful years as starting dog for our family. He had spent much of 2011 on the disabled list for
a bad back and wrist among other problems. Fortunately it appears that the Angels have taken him for their team.
Dexter was claimed off the waiver wire from the Clermont County Animal shelter in 2000 and quickly found his way
into this Reds fan's heart. He was definitely a perennial All-Start Dog.
Rest well my friend...you had a great career !
