Where Was I?

Ha roo, pups and cool-cats, it's me - Zimmie!  Before I get started today, Dave asked me to give a great big "thank woo" from him to all of you for the wonderful Dave-a-versary wishes!  He had a mighty fun day and will tell you all about it on Thursday.  That's another big day around here!  Ha roo!

Now where was I?  Oh, yeah!  Discovering the ocean!


As I said, Ammy and I had hooked Mom up and we walked and walked and walked.

Me and Ams

Before I knew it, we had stumbled onto the most incredible thing - the ocean!  I just knew that's what it had to be!  I've read about it on so many of your blogs and thought oceans just sounded like the coolest, most fun things ever!  I've been wanting one of our own here in Kansas (along with some mountains - wouldn't that be great?) and HAROO!  There it was!

Ammy and I couldn't believe our eyes!

Look, Am!  The ocean!

Oh, Zimmie!  It's beautiful!  Our very own ocean!

She thought we should let Stormy and Dave know.  Fortunately, Mom had her iPhone, so we zipped them off an email.  I sent this picture and gave them the news!

Message to Storm and Dave:  Hey roo guys!  Am and I discovered the Kansas Ocean.

Unfortunately, being the Road Scholar that she is, Storm had some news of her own.  She said if we can actually see across it, as it appears in the photo, it's probably not reeeeeeeeally an ocean.


Storm thought it was a cool discovery anyway, though, and commended us for finding it.

It could have been the ocean, though... don't you think, Ammy?
Oh, yes, Zim.  And it IS pretty!

I figured we should head on out of there; I was kind of disappointed.

Let's go, Yams.

Ammy's always real positive about things and said that it WAS a cool discovery and that maybe we'd see something else really cool as we looped on around toward the house.

Zimmie, I just know we'll find something else really exciting!

She's a real cool sister, you know?  And you know what else?  We did find something that totally captivated my interest on the way home!  Tune back in tomorrow to hear about that part of our adventure!

Play bows,


  1. Hang in there Zims. It was pretty cool, even if its not the ocean. You have such sweet sisters, (and brother), and THAT'S pretty cool just on its own!

    Woos & a-roos,
    Star & Jack a-roo

  2. Hi there, found your blog through the Dughallmor beagles. I think your discovery is great....ocean or not! It looks like a fun spot to play. :)


  3. I wish it was the ocean so that I could have come down for a romantic stroll along the sunset shore with Ammy. Of course we would be properly chaperoned by our Moms.

    Maybe you'll have better luck finding mountains.


  4. Never mind, at least you tried!

    The ocean is not all it is cracked up to be, the first time I saw it, I tried to drink it.

    Far too much seasoning in the water. Someone should have gone easy on the salt in my opinion.

    Looking forward to finding out more about what you discovered tomorrow!

  5. Oh darn. It wasn't your very own ocean. I wonder what you saw on the way home. You have definitely piqued my Siberian curiosity!

  6. Sure was close enough to me for an ocean, I too am jealous of the ocean dwellers. One day we will have our turn at the waves. hehe. Nice to meet ya

  7. Zimmy, we are sorry it wasn't an ocean but we hear the ocean can be a little cranky at times and hits you with waves. That said, it was a very cool discovery! We can't wait to hear about the other discovery too!

  8. Storms ALWAYS has a way of putting things in perspekhtive!

    Woo had a nice time AND a great walk despite the bummer news!

    PeeEssWoo: *SIGH!* A walk with Handsome Brice!!! Flutter flutter my heart!

  9. Walkies are cool, whether or not you found the ocean, you had a great walk. I have been to the ocean, it doesn't taste good.

  10. Cool, that place looks beautiful....but didn't you swim?!
    We'll be back for tomorrow's instalment, can't wait to see what else you saw! Our car has been broken and we've really missed our 'ocean', we're going tomorrow though, yippee!!

  11. Hiya Zim!

    can you bark or in your case "woo" this message to Dave!

    "fine by me to publish my Davepoem, I love you all, and it was my pleasure to write something which pleased woo all!"

    love and licks, Marvin xxxxxx

  12. aw, what a shame that is not the ocean after all. Oceans is really just big big puddles I think, so it still a kind of an ocean, just a littler big puddle. I can see land at my ocean, mum say it be the isle of man. BOL! It look a very pretty place to walk anyways.

  13. A great discovery, even if it's not a real ocean. And woo shouldn't leave us hanging like this about the other surprise!!!

  14. Hey if you think it is the ocean it is the ocean. Don't let anyone tell you different...

  15. I have been all over Kansas and have never, ever seen an ocean!

  16. Hi Zim!
    That was a wonderful discovery! It sure looks like an ocean to me! I saw an ocean like that once but The Owners kept calling it a "pond". Weird. Anyways, I can't wait to see what else you found!

  17. That's ok if it's not the ocean it's still a great discovery! :) I can't wait to see part two!


  18. Maybe it is not the ocean but it looks great!
    I will be waiting for your next post!
    Kisses and hugs

  19. It's a good thing that Stormy is so smart. I am sorry that it is not the ocean but I think you might want to get a second opinion. It might be the ocean. Look for fishes. If it has fishes it the ocean.

  20. Well, even it isn't a real ocean it is a lot of water to play in. It is a cool discovery. As for the mountains in Kansas, I don't think you are going to find any of those either. It might be time for a road trip west to Colorado!

  21. Did woo see Huffle?

    Royal Kisses, KSB

  22. That's a really nice walkie.

    ps. I'll keep a cup of coffee for you Zim. ;)

  23. Oh Zimmie, I'm sorry it's not a real ocean.

  24. Hey Zim!
    What you found is definately much safer than the ocean! At least there is no sharks in there. No many waves for boogey boarding either though :(
    Big licks to you

  25. Bummer! We hadn't thought about the seeing to the other side bit! Keep searching, guys! There's got to be an ocean in Kansas somewhere!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  26. Well, I think your discovery is pretty cool. I also think you should get to go swimming in it as a reward.


  27. I can't imagine what captivated you, I can't wait to see. It is ok you didn't discover another ocean because then you'd just have a bunch of tourists!!

  28. ;) Looks like a kansas ocean to us - we have an ocean in our backyard - its called the Atlantic ocean!!
