Honk! Honk! Traffic Jam!

Ha roo, pups and cool-cats!  It's me, Zim!  Wowzers, did I have an adventure yesterday!  Remember the picture of Ammy from Wordless Wednesday?  She saw geese at the Kansas Ocean!!!  How cool is that!??!  I've never seen a goose, except for the fly-overs they do in the skies above Ao4 HQs.  Well, Mom asked me if I'd like to go for a ride with her and of course I jumped at the chance!  I didn't think we'd see any geese, I wasn't even thinking geese, because we walk to the Kansas Ocean, we don't drive there.  But then... we pulled up at the ocean Ammy discovered back in February!!! 

She had seen a sign about ducks and geese when she was there, so I knew there was potential.  And then... something caught my eye!

There, Mom!  Let's go that way!!!

No, it wasn't the mud that you can see there that was calling me ... though I not only managed to step in it but I made Mom step in it, too.  (Ha roo roo roo!)  Check out the banks of the Amber Ocean!!!


They saw me coming and jumped in the ocean and started swimming away.

Hey, gooses!  C'mon back here!

There was a sign posted about "no swimming", but either they ignored it or can't read.  

They started honking their horns, so I figured there was some traffic jam out there on the ocean or something.  I looked to my left and saw this other kind of goose.  They look like the kind Ammy saw; check 'em out!

Mom said they were from Canada ... or something like that.  Fascinating!

I tried to lull the other guys in...

Heeeeeeeere goosie, goosie, goosie!

But they seemed immune to my charms.  Fine.  I'll just wait.

I can wait here all day, gooses!

But apparently, Mom had other ideas ... involving getting in the car and going home.  Rats!

I'm sending her a mind-meld message to take me back VERY soon!  Those gooses were fascinating!!!  

Play bows,


  1. Maybe your charms will lure in another resident from The North!
    HE has a furry busy day planned fur today! I khan't wait until he khan tell us about it!

    Tank woo fur sharing your beaWOOtiful pikhs!

    PeeEssWoo: Mom says thanks fur the James Taylor earworm...

  2. What cool geese you found Zim! I can't understand why they didn't come over to meet you!

  3. Well,Zimmie, we don't think you have to worry about seeing them again. Mom says they have a tendency to multiply very quickly. So next time, maybe there will be flocks of them.

  4. Those gooses did sure look like a lot of fun!
    What a pity they didn't come to play with you.
    Wonder how they found their way from Canada.
    Do you think someone has given them your address?
    Well Zim we will let you know when we see any gooses over here in Scotland. We have a stuffie goosey not sure if that counts.

  5. Oh, too bad you didn't get to play more closely with them! :) Looks like you had a great time spying on them though.


  6. Be careful, Zim, take the whole army with you if you go again because the Honkers will gang up on you!

    I don't like them a bit!


  7. Those gooses are bigger than ME! You are very brave! I heard sometimes they CHARGE at doggies, so be careful!

  8. That was bad timing on Mom's part fur sure! I suggest you ask her for some of the stale bread she might have hanging around the kitchen. But don't eat it on the way back to the ocean!

  9. Oh we will be right over to help you with those geese. We have been practicing at the lake.. Callie is about the best we got. She runs right through the water after them.. The is no stopping her...

  10. Did you find some goose poop, Zimmie? I've heard those geese poop A LOT and EVERYWHERE and it's real smushy and stinky...'course that last bit sounds like poop in general, but YOU know what I mean!

  11. Zim, you're a real hoot....or should that be honk....or maybe hunk...
    Anyway, good luck catching one of them gooses, they're pretty tricky but more fun than a Wubba :D
    Slobbers xx
    Ooh, good idea Angus....roll in the goose poop, work it right into your scruff...it's SO worth risking a B.A.T.H. for!

  12. It looks like you had a pawsome time Zim!
    Don't you guys get jealous when only one of you goes out with your Mum?
    Big licks to you

  13. BOL!

    Better luck next time catching those geese!

    I hope you go back to visit them soon!

    Lots of Luv & Kisses

  14. Zimmie, when mum and dad went to visit Steve and Kat last year , they saw those gooses from Canada too! Mum said they were big!

  15. But, Zimmie, it looks like you tried your kitty pose with the gooses. Maybe that is why it didn't work.

    Anyway, we find the gooses leave lots of yummy treats on the ground, though our humans keep telling us not to eat them. I wonder why?

  16. Hmmm, Jack tries to woo the geese that walk around the Navy base too, with about the same results woo got. silly gooses!


  17. Hi, Zim!
    Those are big gooses! Too bad they did not play with you!
    Thanks for sharing all the pictures!
    Kisses and hugs

  18. Woo there AO4~
    Lots going on down there in Kansas these days. Woo always seem to find the cool stuff. I can't believe they wouldn't want to meet the infamous Zimstigator in pawson??? That's just a load goose "woo know what" in mi opinion.
    Your pal,

  19. Zim!

    Tell your mom that you require me by your side next time you go visit Honk Honk water park!
    Birds and water, oh you don't have
    a clue what I could do.
    You got my digits, call me soon!

    Maddie the Birdie & flying into water grrrrrl

  20. zim, if you want one of those gooses...i have millions of them here...i could send some seagulls too...whatever you want....they loose there charm when they chase you back though...so i hear...

  21. I would have thought that you get them to come closer since you can do it with kitties. Maybe you can work on learning to speak goose.

  22. What snobbish geese, Zim! We can't believe they didn't come over to meet you and chat awhile! Maybe next time!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  23. Hi Zim,
    Wow you got to see real live gooses! We have only seen ducks a few times but never geese. The ocean shore looks like a great place to run!

  24. Check it out we found a big white bird too.
    I was looking for some of those tasty fish bones..

  25. Cool geese! You know I read that herding dogs practice on geese so maybe you could try your hand at being a sheltie. BOL! You should learn to speak goose so's you know what they be honking about next time and you can lure them over then.
    ~lickies, Ludo

  26. Maybe you'll get them next time! Do you think you would jump in the water to get them? I wouldn't...I hate water! :)


  27. Yep, those are the same gooses that I saw. You can verify it if I ever get the videos posted today.

    I can't wait until you go back. Say "hi" to them for me!
