Who We Are

Saturday, April 25, 2009


Ha roo, pups and kit-cats!  It's me - Zimmie!  Before I get to today's post, I would like to thank the verrrrrry beautiful and snuggly Hazel over at Pointer Pandemonium for presenting us with this award:

According to Hazel, Ludo's mom said the award probably reads, "Proven!  Your blog has sweetness."  Wow!  That's really special!  Thank you very much, Hazel!  And Scotty and Sophie!

Today (the 25th) is ANZAC Day - and we do give thanks for the fighting men of Australia and New Zealand, our dear friends and allies!   In keeping with the day, we'd like to honor our blogging friends in Australia and New Zealand, by sharing this award!  We send this out to Opy and CharlieHuffle, and Suzuki in Australia, and to Team Husky and  Josh and Jessie in New Zealand!  And... I hope I'm not leaving anypup or kitty out.  If you're reading this and are from Australia or New Zealand, please accept this blog award!  Thank you for your friendship!

As Storm mentioned yesterday, by the time I got back to the park to see my new circus friends, they were gone.  Mom decided we'd head to some place named Keats to seek adventure there.  Those purple flowers we showed you yesterday were on the way!  According to our fellow blogger at Flint Hills/Tall Grass, it's called Henbit and is an annual plant that "grows best in disturbed areas like plowed fields and along high-use areas."  Thanks for the great info!

After we went through a bunch of fields, we saw a sign for a park, so we thought we'd stop in.  Mom said she was sorry I couldn't see my horse friends again, but that maybe we'd find someone just as fun out here.

Ha roo?

No... not really as fun as the horses from the circus.  We were about to leave when I saw .... her.  Sigh.  Her name is Sadie and our moms let us meet.

Me and Sadie.  And Sadie's mom.

Isn't she dreamy?  I mean ... she's no Sitka, but wow, was she fun!  This is the only good picture Mom got of us, because we did play bows and leash zoomie macramé and stuff, so everything was out of focus.  

We really liked each other and Mom said we could try to meet up with her again!  It turned into a great adventure after all!  

Play bows,


  1. Khongrats on the paweome award!

    MORE khongrats on how woo passed it along!

    MOST khongrats fur your new pal AND fur the leash makhrame! That is one pawkhraft I khan do!


  2. That Sadie's a looker! I'm glad that you had a good time together.


  3. I was hearing a song once that went "Sadie, Sadie, Married Lady" . . .you don't suppose she is married do you? I hope you can meet her again,you could have more fun and more fun!


  4. oh I most admired your leash zoomie macrame work. My J says can you macrame a plant holder macrame thingme for her, it would be very 1970s and retro style!

    Sorry I have been missing, I am currently being held hostage in a "kennel" as my parents (with no concern for my welfare) have taken a weekend away.

    However, I think as my J has slept in far too many strange beds the past few weeks, they will not be long away from me.

    oh and how wonderful you are honouring our Aussie and New Zealand pals, on Anzac Day.

    Thank you for your kindness.

    Your kennelled friend Marvin xxxxx

    Who is back to freedom tomorrow.


  5. Congratulations on your award! That's nice that you got to me another Sadie but I happen to think that I'm the dreamiest Sadie of all!


  6. Yet another great adventure-packed blog post! Woo guys really get around. Sadie looks like a furry sweet girl, maybe you'll get to play with her again! We did a little leash macrame of our own today, with Moon. We made an impressively large macrame all together!

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

    What is it about the name Sadie - they are always such sweet pups - glad you made a nice new furiend.

    Golly Zim, when we saw the post title we though one of y'all was gonna be reading poetry. We are glad it was about a place, not a person, named Keats. If the othetr dogs name was Shelly instaead of Sadie it would have been abvout Keats and Shelly and we would have freaked out. We don't have any of that purple stuff in our paddock and that's pretty disturbed ground. Blows that theory.
    - TBH

  14. Thanks Guys!
    Noah the Airedale and Travis are Aussies too. Not sure if you know them?
    Big licks to you

  15. Gorgeous leash! And congrats on the award! And I have another over at my blog for you! Big day...
    Hugs and Love xo

  16. Woo there AO4~
    Long time no snoof!! You all have sure been busy with lots of well deserved awards and sweet adventures. It sure is pretti in Kansas right now.
    Your pal,

  17. You were bigger than those ponies but that yellow one must not be getting a good diet since his color is a little off.

    Hope you see Sadie again. She looks like a fun gal.

    Princess Eva

    Oh Zim, she looks so sweet!!! I know your heart belongs to me, but I am super stoked that you made a cool friend at the park! You are such a lovable fella!!!

  28. A dog that you can do leash zoomies with is even better than a circus horse!! I really hope you meet up again.
