Z-Time With the Z-man

Hey pups! It's me - Zim. Did you see the great pictures our friend Magnum posted on the MaPaw Siberian Husky Rescue blog the other day? They were totally inspiring. We of the Ao4 thought we'd take turns posting some of our best nap shots!

Siberianly speaking, I like to sleep in all KINDS of positions - the Froggie Doggie, upside down, holding up walls, stretched out and other zen-like poses... all kinds of positions! What I do that the other members of the Ao4 don't seem to is put my head under stuff. I love to lay with my head under the chair or pillows. Here are some of my pillow shots!

Nice, huh? That one (above) was taken just the other day. Mom had just changed the bedding and it all smelled like Downey fabric softener. I love the smell of Downey!

Here I am from a while ago, helping change the sheets! Mom says I add a lot of pleasure to housework and that I can turn a 5-minute task into a 20-minute one. Hey. Working Breed! I'm here to help.

As you can see above, I got a bit tuckered out half-way through the task and had to take a nap. It's really exhausting work.

Here's one last one for today:

This is all making me very tired. I'm off to try out a new pose. Storms, Ammy and Dave will post their nap pictures in the coming days!

Tired play bows,


  1. Hee hee, maybe I can have Tea-Time with T-man :)

    You're so nice to help your mama with her housework. I'm sure she appreciates your efforts and the time you spend together.


  2. Hi Zimmers,

    Frankie Girl here! You are a great pillow napper. So cute.
    I like the last pic......most excellent. I can't wait to see the other 3 nap pics.......Woo

    Don't we nap nice? Mom says we all look like angels, us Sibes when we sleep.


  3. You look very cozy with your head buried in pillows. I might have to try that sometime!


  4. Hey Zim,

    Good work! Do you ever curl? Some of my flock do. Like pies. Or cats. I don't too often cause I'm bigger I think. Thought you might be too.


  5. Wonderful nap pictures Zimmy! You look like you've got it down to an art! Such a hardworking pup!

    Oh handsome ZIM!
    I LOVe to sleep with my head on pillows, not under them. BUT, I will sleep under any pillow with your handsome red and white self!
    Hugs, Sitka

  7. Your bed looks so nice and comfy! I love to sleep too. I like to stick my head between the pillow and the back of the couch sometimes. Or, I just cover my face with my fluffy tail. Can't wait to see all the other pics!

    Maybe I can post some of my sleepy pics! (mom has lots of them!)


  8. Oh Zim, you are a card! You and Mati have some weird napping positions, but I'll still send you licks! Haroooo to Am, Stormy, and Dave! -Rocky

  9. You look pretty comfy there, maybe I should try some pillows instead of the floor all the time!

  10. Hi Zim,
    You look so cute and cuddly in all those pics. Actually I like to sleep like that too. As long as my head is covered I'm warm. Mummy covers us with our blankets every night when we go to bed and in the morning when she wakes us up I have only my head under the blankets!

  11. T-man: Ha roo roo roo! Good one!
    And oh, yeah. Mom always is sure to thank me for my hard work.

    Frankie: Thank roo. Mom seems to find us adorable when we're asleep. I prefer the look I have when Dave and I are doing zoomies in the living room - but go figure!

    Kat: You've GOTTA try it!

    Rafe: Dave answered your question in Friday's post! We LOVE sleeping all curled up!

    M & M: Thank roo for understanding what a talent napping is. It's exhausting work - but I guess since we're part of the Working Breed Group this is what it's all about, huh?

    Sitka: Ha ROO, you're so sweet! I hope you'll try the under-the-pillow pose. It's really great. Honest.

    Holly: We'd love to see your sleepy poses!!!

    Rocky: What can I say? I'm just a guy who knows how to get comfy! Ha roo roo roo! Everypup says "ha roo" back to you!

    Thrawn: Oh, YEAH! Pillows are really the way to go!

    Jazz: Ha roo roo roo! We need a "before" and "after" picture of the covers! I'll bet you look 100% adorable!

    Play bows all!

  12. My Mom tells me the same thing! Although she says a 2 minute job becomes a 30 minute job. You look very comfy in all those pictures.

  13. Kaos: That's great that you help out around the house, too. It's nice to be appreciated, isn't it?
    Play bows,

  14. I love the under the pillow pictures!

  15. Cubby: It's so comfy! Give it a try!
    Play bows,
