Trip To The Kansas Ocean

Ha roo, pups and cool cats! It's me - Zim! Wow, did I have a great trip to the Kansas Ocean with Mom yesterday! Yeah - just me and Mom! Something about someone having excess energy he needed to blow off. I have no idea what that was all about, but wowzers, did I have fun!

We walked all over the place - checked some wildflowers, watched some golfers over on the course, sniffed every blade of grass -- you know, the basics! Then something captured my full attention!

Over there, Mom!

It was in this dead tree.

Yeah, in there!

I was fascinated! I must have stood there staring for a good ten minutes!


Mom couldn't pull me away. It wasn't until something - or should I say "someone" else caught my attention that I was able to refocus my gaze.


That's right - her! I can't remember her name, sadly, but isn't she a babe!?!? Her mom didn't let her stop (she had her cell phone plastered to her ear!) but I've met her before. She's a Pit Bull/Border Collie mix and she's really sweet! I wish we had been able to exchange sniffies, and I think she wanted to as well, but her mom was "otherwise engaged". Easy come, easy go, I guess.

Anyroo, I got back to enjoying the ocean breezes and watching the water.

What a great day to be at the KS Ocean!

It was a great way to spend a bit of my Sunday afternoon. I even did some posing for Mom. Check out this profile:

Me - Zim

I wish she'd taken one of my blue-eyed side - you know, just to repeat the blue in my collar. Even so, this isn't too bad!

I hope you all had a great weekend!
Play bows,


  1. I'm sure she'll make up fur it soon!


  2. what a great day - we love the ocean - we are going to have to read your other post to see where the kansas ocean is!!

  5. We had close to an ocean just outside our yard today with all the rain. Your ocean looks a lot nicer.

  22. Wow, I didn't know Kansas had its own ocean. Good job finding it ;)

    I like that last picture of you; you look very regal.

  23. Zimmy..you are so handsome!! I am surprised that pretty dog didn't tell her mommy to drop that dern phone and let her go play with you.


  24. Too bad you weren't able to meet up with your friend this time but maybe next time her mom will be off the phone. What was in the dead tree that had you so fascinated?

    We think you look very handsome today Zim - we love the profile shot!

  25. Sounds like the perfect day at the beach! Breezes, Babes, something in a tree...

  26. Hi, Zim!
    Sure you had a pawesome trip to the Kansas Ocean!
    Maybe next time that girl will come and say hello!
    Kisses and hugs

  27. Hi Zim
    That pup sure was pretty :)
    No, Bark did not come to the country with us, she said she had to get back to the office to start up the Five Fur Friday interviews again. She has been a bit distracted lately, apparently she has fallen head ovfur paws fur a studly sibe... she wouldn't tell me who... She said to tell you she will be in touch soon...
    Big licks to you

  28. Bewootiful scenery- the ocean, the tree and the babe!

    I like oceans where you can see both shores! very purty!

    so sad your friend's mom is on the phone. hope the poor gal gets more lovin' than that on her usual walks! doesn't anyone know how dangerous it is to walk a dog and talk on a cell phone at the same time? the danger is in a pulled arm socket when the doggie sees a pal or a bunny! woof!

  30. You look handsome there Zim. :)
    I hope you'll meet the pretty doggie again

  31. Bummer about the babe but at least you and your mom had a great walkie at the ocean!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  32. Don't worry Zim, your amber eye is very pretty too.

  33. Oh Zim, you're such the ladies man! :)

    I love your pics of the Kansas Ocean! It's so beautiful there!


  34. Zimmy, you are so handsome I can't imagine that she will be able to walk by you in the future. I bet she is having a "talk" with her Mom about this. Glad you enjoyed the ocean!

  35. You mean even the talented, ever-so-calming Zimmie couldn't put the moves on her mom so she'd come over? Wow!
