Every Walk is an Adventure...

... especially if Zim is with you.  Hi everypuppy and everykitty, it's me, Amber.  Have I told you lately how special my little brother is?  Everywhere he goes, he finds an adventure - even if we're just going to the corner!  Take the other day for instance!

We sent Mom a mind-meld message that we'd like to walk down to the corner - just to see what was going on.  We had only gone a hundred meters or so, when Zim froze.  Mom didn't know why, but she got behind him and took this picture.

Can you see what he's looking at?  Try a closer view:

Sigh.  Yes, a kitty cat.  One Zim hasn't won over to his side yet.  (Most of the other neighborhood kitties like him.  I mean they like him!)

Zim laid flat down, in his extremely unassuming,  non-threatening pose and refused to move.  He does this with anyone he meets who might feel intimidated.

Hi, little kit-cat!  I'm Zim!

Usually when he does this, whoever he's trying to win over will come meet him.  It didn't work this time for some reason.

Who are you looking at, Zimmie?

I wonder why?  :)

Give it up, Zimmie.  You'll have to con Mom into bringing you out alone.

It was all Mom and I could do to get him on his feet and get him moving again.  That Zimmie!  He can find adventure (and new friends) where EVER he goes!

Love,
Ammy

  4. The cats like you Zim? That is very, very, interesting! Do you feed them treats? Give them kisses? I'm confused.

  8. Zim,

    That's a cute cat. Are you really friends with cats? I live with two cats and sometimes they like me and sometimes they don't. Cats are kinda that way. They always like Ziggy cause he's a bit of a kiss up.

  9. Zim - We are always impressed with your connection to kitties. Our connection is never quite so well-intended, which is why we never get up close and personal.

  10. Hi Amber,
    Zim sure is such a kind and friendly dog. The other day I met a little jack russel girly and I lied down to greet her and then we played. Mum wondered where I learned that from now she thinks I must have been getting tips from Zim.

  27. Aww, Zim. You're such a nice fellow! I'll bet that that kit-cat would have made friends with you had you been alone. Would Ammy lick it or chase it, hmm?
