New Friends!

Ha roo, everypup and everycat!  It's me - Zim!  I had such a cool adventure yesterday, I just can't WAIT to tell you about it!

There I was, walking through our "regular" park with Mom, when I saw this:

Wow.  Those guys aren't usually there!  I had to go meet them!  I had to!

I think the reddish-brown one likes me, Mom.  Let's go say "ha roo".

I did my low-crouch thing like I do for all my new friends, so he wouldn't feel threatened and might come see me.

That's it, fella.  C'mon over!  

And he did!  He came right over to me!

I got up into a "sit" and he stood right there.  We exchanged silent pleasantries, then he had to go to work.  He helps run something called a "circus"!  The person who works for him scratched my ears and said I was a real special guy.  Hey, isn't that nice!?

Mom and I walked around and saw some of his co-workers.  Mom thought this stripe-legged guy was pretty cute:

Ha roo to you!

He liked me a whole lot.  The guy who works for him also gave me compliments and ear scratchies!

There were other animals back in there I wanted to meet, but they were hanging in the shade of the tent - it was well over 85 at that time and a bit toasty out.  There were some really huge horses and a camel and a llama!  Can you imagine!?!?  I hope to go back today to meet them!

I also got to meet and be admired by about a million people who were there to see the animals.  Maybe not quite a million.  Maybe more like ten.  But it was a LOT and they all found me to be totally charming.  What can I say?

Anyroo, I'm going to see if Mom and I can head to the park.  I'll try to have her take better pictures this time!

Play bows,


  1. Zim - Of course they found you totally charming. We all do.

    Natasha, of course, is totally jealous because she always wants to meet those "Big Dogs" up close and personal.

  2. You are so good at Calming Signals. I think all animals would consider you their friend.

  3. Zim, you are totally charming, which is why everyone must pet you, and see you. What fun meeting all of those creatures.

  4. Zim, we would like to know who wouldn't find you charming?????

    The circus is in town!!! Are you going back for the Big Show under the tent?

    Thanks for sharing your new friends.

  5. Zim, you are so charming. If you crouched down low like that Bailey would love it and climb all over your head!
    You certainly made some nice new friends today. We liked the stipey fellow too!

  6. So, is Dave REALLY getting that pony?

    PeeEssWoo: YEP, Dr Zim Doolittle!

  7. Zim! we saw horses like that before too--and we were bigger than them! i bet you were pretty close yourself! you sure have some kewl adventures and meet lots of interesting creatures. you're one lucky pooch!

  8. oh Zim! What a circus!

    hey, and Ten Million peeps saw you, wow, even better than the internet.......;0D

    Your new friends sounded the best thing......

    My Jeannie keeps singing some silly song from "Evita".......after reading your post.

    Explanations another time, I pawsonally blame everything she does and sings, and says, at the moment on her Jet Lag.

    Which is also proving to be the longest Jet Lag in the history of Aviation!

  9. oh was the horse wearing pyjams?

    just wondered Zim!

  10. Zim, Zim, Zim, you are one amazing guy! To get a little circus horse to walk over to you, why, what can I say!

    Just keep up your great attitude to other animals and you will have fun forever.


  11. I'm not surprised one bit that they all found you charming Zim! It's great you got to meet some circus animals!

  12. What an exciting day you had! Those are some beautiful new friends you made. It must be nice to be so cute you're irresistible even to those who work with animals all the time.

  13. You're very good at making new friends, Zim! That stripe-legged guy is so cool!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  14. Did anyone think that you were going to be in the circus? Perhaps in the dog sledding ring?


  15. Oh that is so sweet. He actually came to meet you. That was nice of the guy to scratch your eats. We know you are a great guy Zim..

  20. Hi, Zim!

    Kisses and hugs

  21. Whoaa...Z-Man....that's a funny lookin dog....what breed? And did he play-bow to you? BOL!
    How very cool he came over to say hi, what a doood :D
    Oh dear...our human sis once told Mum about a critter called a Zorse, it's a cross between a Zebra and a Horse....Mum told her not to be so silly, (well, she thinks that Unicorns actually live in Canada!) but ummm...I think Mum might have some apologising to do....that stripey legged dooood looks like a Zorse to us!

    Heya Zim,
    Boy, you sure are approachable. You must exude confidence to not scare all the animals that come to meet you. You are very well behaved and always a perfect gentleman.
    - TBH
