Exploring The Wild Prairie

Woo, everypuppy and everycat!  It's me - Dave. Now that the weather's gotten really nice - bitterly cold temperatures and windy - we've been going on more walks and doing lots of exploring.  It's not like I spend ALL my time trying to convince Mom I should be able to sit on her lap and get on the furniture and stuff like that.  Really.


Here's a cool picture of me and my kid brother out exploring the wild prairie!

Me and Zimmie

Zim, Wild Coyote of the Prairie!

He made that nickname up himself.  It's pretty fitting since he learned Coyote as his first language.  (To new readers:  Before joining our family, Zim had been chained to a tree 24 hours a day - for the first year and a half of his life.  He learned to talk by listening to the coyotes who sang to him.  When he got here, Stormy taught him Siberian.)  Anywoo, he's got great camouflage this time of year, doesn't he?  Cool!

Speaking of "cool" and my little brother, remember all the talk about the computer crash and Mom losing some of her photos, but Dad was able to rescue a few favs off the iPod?  (With Stormy's help!)  Here's one of those shots:

She hadn't saved it anywhere else... but now thanks to Dad (and Stormy), she has one of her favorite Zim-shots back!  Oh, there are others, too - to include some of me!  But that one was one that tugged at her heartstrings.

We had a great walk this morning, and now I need to get back to doing what I do best.

Yes, that's Mom's leg. Woo.  Have a great day!



  1. WOO HOO!

    We need to get woo on Mutual of Manhattan's Wyld Khyngdom!

    Khoyote of the Praire - yip yip!

    Happy Snoozzzzzzzing!

    PeeEssWoo: Great Pikhture!

  2. Cool pictures. I have stripes too, but they are because I'm getting so fluffy, my fur is popping out and I try to keep Mom and the brush at bay. The stripes are useful for pretending that I am a zebra.


  3. So Dave, would you be the rare exotic Siberian Zebra???

    Moms are the best. I'm snuggled up to mine right now.


  4. Zebra Dave - How appropriate. And despite our wild nature, we all need a snuggle.

  5. What great photos of your walk in the wild prairie! You do look striped! I didn't know that about Zim as a baby but I'm sure glad he is part of your family now. I think the people who do things like that to dogs need to be the ones out there chained to trees 24/7.

  6. Hi Dave,
    Looks like you had a fun time exploring! I'm glad you guys like the cold - I don't care for it much. I have to wear coats in the winter cuz I get fureezing! Hey, I have an idea! I will just send all the snow we get over to you guys!

  7. Dave - you are the Zebra which dearly warmed our hearts.

    Glad you got things sorted.

    From cold and even colder and icy north of the UK!

  8. forgot to say, we are feeling for poor Zim, a terrible time he had.

    He was a lucky zebra (ooooh sorry! Husky - ooops sorry confused Marvin then, to find your Mama and Papa!

    They are the bestest.

  10. Woo Zimmie you look SO cool in that photo!

    your bestest friend Huffle Mawson

  11. Woo - your Mom has blue legs? That's very interesting. That's graet camo for prairie exploration but you may want to let Zim know he should talk to Mom about ditching that bright blue leash. It kind of spoils the scene.

  12. WOO WOO
    Great pictures of everyone! We are glad you guys are helping your mom rescuing the pictures! You just can't have enough pictures of us beautiful kids!

    Hope you had a great nap!

    Wooos & a-rooos,
    Star & Jack a-roo

  14. Hi, friends!
    A nice walkie on the wild prairie!
    Kisses and hugs

  15. You guys look at home out there on the prairie. Zimmie, I'm very proud of you..you've had your mettle tested by the trials of your young life and come out a fine fellow, indeed! I'd like to hear you sing-I'll bet you have a beautiful voice!
