Everysibe To The Kansas Ocean!

Tail wags, pups and kit-cats, it's me - Stormy!  We've had some remarkably warm weather lately (for February in Kansas) and Saturday was one such day!  It must have hit 70; the bipeds were outside in short-sleeved shirts and shorts!  Dad hit the links in the early afternoon, then when he got home, he suggested that we all six walk out to the Kansas Ocean!  ALL of us!  It was so exciting!  I hadn't been in that area for a long time - since before the ocean became ...sort of an ocean!

Here I am, admiring it:

It's as gorgeous as you pups said it was!

It's a cool ocean, isn't it Storm?

Dave and I checked it out together; the redheads spotted something new and Dad took them over to check that out.

Hey, Dad, what's that sign?
Yeah, Daddy, what does that say?

That's when the we got the news.  

"Vanesta Lake"?  Not only does the sign confirm my suspicions that it's not really the Kansas Ocean - but they named it without any input from Zim.  I mean - Zim is the one who discovered it, you'd think he could name it!  Well, it will always be the Kansas Ocean to us!

We took some great group shots; we'll share those with you tomorrow!

Tail wags,


  1. Maybe woo khan get your mom to do some of her magikh on the iMakh thing...

    She khan khreate the REAL sign fur the Kansas Ocean!


  2. the name was disappointing but we can't wait for the group shots.

  3. aw, a lake and not a sea? Maybe you could go write over that sign with your name instead.

  4. At least it should be the Zimnesta lake - like a Siesta Zim style (or maybe that is just a Ziesta!)

  5. Stormy,

    I love your Kansas Ocean. The real ocean is overrated. You can't drink the water and it's filled with SHARKS!

    But if you want, you could always spend the summer here and see for yourself.


  6. You should be able to name it "Zim's Kansas Ocean". Lets see the group shots with a new sign post!

  7. Are you sure that your dad was telling you the truth about the name, Zim? I mean. . sometimes they don't always tell us the truth. I bet that really says Zim's Kansas Ocean.


  8. Zim, didn't you let the authorities know you discovered this ocean? Because then you would get some credits in the history books and they will probably (in embarrasment) change the name immediately to Zim's Kansas Ocean.

    Oh, get on it, Zim and make it happen.


  9. It should be named "Zimmie Ocean!" though we like the "Ziesta" version too

  10. That is so great that all six of you got to go for a nice walk together! I think they should have named the lake after Zimmie!


  11. We all know who really found the ocean! And we hope to see lots more group pictures!!

  12. I will sign a petition for you to have it changed to the rightful founder. =)

  13. I think it should have been called Zimmle Mawson Lake.

  14. I can't believe they didn't let you guys name that ocean. How rude! We're getting warm weather here in the Mitten State this week, too. All my beloved snow is melting. :( Mom keeps saying we'll get some more, though. Hopefully, you guys will get some, too. A sibe without snow is just wrong!

    Your pal,

  15. Can I be an Honorary Sibe? I do belong to the AO4 now. please!!!

  16. You can call it an ocean if you want. We won't tell anyone..

  17. Wow, we didn't know Kansas had an ocean. You're lucky. We don't have one in GA.

    You should write the governor of KS and tell him they've made an error in the sign.

  18. We are in total accord with Khyra, a new and improved sign is so needed. If we get all the rain they are promising, that Vanesta thing could get much bigger!

    Woos, the OP Pack

  20. Yaaay, you guys got to your ocean again! (did it shrink?) Shocking that they named it without first consulting you :D You guys always post such gorgeous photos....we'll be back tomorrow to see you all posing!

  21. oh yes, a little imac imagick is in order! It will always be the Kansas Ocean to us too.

    woos & a-roos,

  22. Hi, friends!
    Well, maybe its not an ocean but I agree that it must be called at least Zimmy Lake!
    Kisses and hugs

  23. The sea of Zim! Harooo! We can't wait to see more pics...

    We think your warm weather is headed our way!

    M & I

  24. Well, we know who discovered that ocean so the sign people must have had a mix up. Can't wait to see the group shots!

  25. Can I come, too? I think it would be great to see your Ocean in the spring..imagine all the frogs and turtles and nesting birds..it's gonna be great!

  26. Don't let them fool you....it is still YOUR Kansas Ocean!!!


  27. Woh you can see the ocean. how pawsome..

  28. hmm just a lake?? I don't know if I believe that, it looks like an ocean to me!!

  29. Not only should Zim get to name the ocean, it should be named FOR Zim. The Zim Ocean. Or Zim Lake. Whatever.
