Awarded, Tagged and Exhausted!

Ha roo, everypup and everycat!  It's me - Zim!  Ammy gave you the cool news about our snowfall yesterday - before it stopped, I'd say we got a healthy 5 inches.  It was great!  More about that in a minute.

First, I'd like to thank our pal Ozzie for the very special award he gave us yesterday.  The write-up reads, "This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships!  These blogs are exceedingly charming.  These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. The are not interested in prizes of self-aggrandizement.  Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut even more friendships are propagated.  Please give ore attention to these writers!  Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and included this cleverly-written [ha-roo!] text into the body of their award."

Thank roo, Oz!  We feel very honored.  We would like to pass this award along to the following 8 bloggers:

My best friend Huffle Mawson

Each one of you are very kind, friendly, and not into that self-aggrandizement thing.  (I had to ask Stormy what that meant!)  And you're all charming!

Speaking of charming.... we were tagged by our very dear friend Pippin!  She said the tag is to go to your computer archives and then go to the 6th folder and pick the 6th picture and then post it along with the story behind it.  This was a good tag for us, as we're still learning how to navigate around our computer!   Here's the 6th pic in our 6th folder:

It's Ammy... working VERY hard to keep a dining room chair in place.

Very fun tag game, Pippin!  Thank roo for including us!  And because we're Sibes and aren't good at following rules - we're passing the award we just received along to you and all of your pack-mates, too!  Ha rooooo!

Now that you've seen Amber working (above), I thought you'd all appreciate seeing how hard I worked yesterday!  First we all worked very hard watching Mom and Dad shovel all the snow out front.  I don't have pictures of that.  After we finished watching them shovel, they took us on a GREAT walk in the SNOW!  Here we all are!

Left to right:  Ammy, Dave, me (Zimmie!) and Storms

When we got home, I started construction on my first snow fort of the season.  It's a very important task, and you can see in this video just how seriously I take my job!

As you can imagine, I was beyond exhausted after that!  It was all I could do when I got in to kick some pillows on the floor, throw the covers around, and make myself a nice snug nest in the bed.

I think you all know where to find me if you need me.

Thanks again to Ozzie and Pippin!

Play bows to all,

  8. Oh thank you for the award everypup! That's so lovely! And I'll be coming over to snooze with you on the bed, Zim.

    I couldn't watch the snow fort video - when I tried to play it, it said "this video is currently unavailable. Please try again later". What does THAT mean???

  9. Zim,

    Good job kickin' it up for the camera. We have missed the fort building. Any sign of Oswald on your walk? Keep up the great snow shots. We're living vicariously.

    Loving Life,

  11. ZIM!! YOU GOT SNOW!! That's the muy awesomest thing for you! And you got to walk in it and make a snow fort-ah, life IS good! I'm so glad for all of you!

    Hey! Thank you for the neat award! I had to go look up that big word, too, and I don't THINK I do that-I'd probably get in big trouble if I did!

    Roos to the AO4!

  12. Hi Zim! What an awesome fort! Can you teach me how to do that?


  13. I think we definitely need a snow fort here! Of course, we'd need SNOW for that....can you make anything with rain?

    Great job you guys!!
