Rough and Tumble Outdoorsy Type

Ha roo, pups! It's me - Zim! As you know, Siberian Huskies are rough and tumble outdoorsy type of dogs. Pulling sleds, barrelling through snow, herding reindeer - we do it all! Well, maybe not us, except for the snow part, but at least our ancestors and relatives. Now ... after reading our blog, you might have the wrong idea about us members of the Ao4 -- you know, that since we're "indoor" pups that we might be spoiled and not quite so rough and tumble. Not true, readers! Just this week, I fought off a polar bear! That's right - a polar bear!

There I was, catching some well-deserved sack time, and I was viciously, savagely attacked by a polar bear! I caution you - these pictures are not for the faint of heart! Here he is, sneaking up on me!

Pssst! Hey Zim! Pssst!

It was horrifying! We thrashed around for a long while. He had me pinned for a short time ...

Gotcha, Zim!

But I fought hard, and finally got him RIGHT where I wanted him.

Zzzzz....... OH! I mean, "Grrr!"

That's right. My name is Zim. Polar bears fear me!

Play bows,

    Oh Zimmie! I am so glad you showed that Polar Bear who was boss!!! I don't like for anything to sneak attack my Zim, much less my Army of Four!!

  2. Zimmie you are SO FEROCIOUS! Conquering a polar bear is HUGE. You are a wild beast!! And my hero!!


  3. we are glad you didn't get eaten by that polar bear.

  4. OHOHOH yeah! Good for you Zimmie!!! Yeah wild animals and stuff attacks me too all the time! Ya never know! You did a good job of subduing him though!!!

  5. Zim, you're adorable!

    Sorry to hear about losing all your snow. Ari says she thinks the cats stole it (they never really appreciated it anyway!). 55 degrees in Maine today. Way too warm for huskies!

  6. Wow, that's quite a feat!! Or is it feet? Ha roo roo roo!!

    Good job wrestling the Polar Bear!!


  7. Oh Zim...
