Guard Duty

Ha roo, pups and kit-cats.  It's me - Zim.  You know, "they" say Siberian Huskies aren't good watch dogs.  Well, "they" are usually wrong about the weather, and "they" are wrong about us not being good watch pups.  I watch everything that happens and everyone who goes past our house.

Me, on Guard Duty by the front door

Oh, it's not like I'm going to bark about anything, but I am watching!

Ha roo?

If Mom and Dad want to know if there's anything going on, all they have to do it watch the watch dog.  Ha roo roo roo.  "Watch the watch dog."  Where's Ammy?  I've gotta run that by her!

Play bows,

PS:  Ammy thanks everyone for their concern over the terrifying picture she posted yesterday on Wordless Wednesday.  Mom took that after ten entire minutes of combing... then said something about "not having made a dent in Ammy's thick coat."  (If anyone needs Am, she said she'll be hiding under the dining room table.)  

PPS:  AND thanks to my bestest friend Huffle for the comment she left - as you can see by today's photos, I didn't explode.  Ha roo roo roo, that was such a good one!


  1. oh Zim! you are indeed a great watchdog--yes "they" are usually wrong about most things aren't they? hehhehe! we really really love the hangings on your door to--very attractive!

  2. Tell Ammy if she sends her fur to me (instead of Brice)
    I will have it spun and Mom will knit you a pair of ear covers, or something!


  3. Hey Zim, I'm with you, you know how well I can sit and watch at my window:)

    Great job watching - did you see anything good?

    Woos, Phantom

  4. Excellent job. We watch everyone who comes and goes, but never make noise except for the propane gas guy (because the tank is right by our fence) and the UPS guy (because UPS delivers our dog food). Everyone else just gets watched.

  5. Hi Zim
    You seem to be a dog who watches! We liked the pictures on your door - very cool.
    What did you think of Hamish's idea that our Prime Minister should have a Husky as a pet! Hamish reckons he would be a whole lot happier!
    You do seem to make everyone happy!
    Keep up the watching.
    Martha & Bailey xx
    PS We bark even when we dont see anything!

  6. You are certainly a great watchdog Zim! I like to watch everyone too and I don't say anything unless someone takes one step in our driveway. Then I alert my mom and dad that someone is coming!


  7. Grrrrreat job!

    Woo've seen my pawsitioning in the yard!

    As fur Ammy's fluff: I heard my mom tell Summii's Mummii about it!


  8. Yeah, we don't know who "they " think "they" are, but what do "they" know? We like watching too. Ha-woo.

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

  9. Umm, you can watch for me, I will be napping......zzzzzzzzz

  16. Zim,

    I like to look out my door, too! Sometimes I woo, if something really exciting is going on. Like if my beagle friend Chloe is outside or something!


  17. Zim, you're doing a great job. Don't listen to "them", "they" know nothing. And I'm so glad you didn't explode!

  18. You don't need to bark to be a watch dog!
    Keep the good work!
    Kisses and hugs

  19. I'm not much of a watch dog...I generally run and dive under the bed. But I do occasionally watch TV. Woo is doing a great job, Zim!!!

  20. I watch too... but I like to talk a lot too - Momster calls it barking, but those hoomans really don't understand much...

  21. I'd rather snuggle with Dad than watch the door but I'm really good at barking when the doorbell rings.

  22. Hi Zim! I'm a great watch dog too! :)

    Poor Ammy! At least she has a good hiding place!


  23. we definately do not get tired of hearing how majestic we look--do you guys get tired of hearing how utterly handsome you are?? hehe

  24. Hey Guys!
    You have been nominated ovfur at my blog to be interviewed fur next weeks Five Fur Friday. Stop by when you get a chance and vote or check out your competition BOL
    Big licks to you

  25. I'm like you Zim. I love to sit and watch everything happening outside the front window. Usually there are kids playing in the street and sometimes squirrels walk across the porch. I also get really excited when the doorbell rings.


  26. You should have me over for a visit. When you see something, you tell me, and then I bark! I looove to bark at people going by!

  27. Hi Zim!
    That look like very serious :D
    And Kiko thinks that you are very good :D

    hugs and kisses from kikos world

  28. Heya Zim,
    We think that "they" confuse bark dog and watch dog. Watch dogs watch and bark dogs bark. You have it correct. And as for Huffle, she's such a card. Boru wants her to dump Mr. Sippy so that he, boru, can pursue her romatically from afar (far, far, afar).
