Monday Miscellany

Ha roo, pups and cool cats! It's me, Zim. Yeah, another Monday morning. Don't ya love it? The start of a new week, promises of new adventure and fun to be had by all! Before I get to it, Storm said we've had some great comments and questions lately and she tasked me to respond to some of them. Cool. I love it when we do this!

Many on you left very kind comments about the moon shot Stormy posted the other day. Mom sends her sincere thanks. She used her Nikon P90; it has a zoom lens that goes from 26-624 mm. I'm not sure what that means, but perhaps you do. For more info, click here. She shot this one just last night and said I can share it with you.

She also said that's without benefit of a tripod, but again, I have close to no idea what she's talking about.

On the issue of Ammy's cool pouffy pink camo quilt... many of you felt bad for Dave and thought Mom should make him a cool pouffy BLUE camo quilt. Well, actually Mom already has! Please see this link. And let me assure you...

Z-man tested and approved!

...it's comfy!

Several of you asked why I'm usually the one who gets to go on the extra adventures. Hmm. We all get to go on the morning walk - that's our favorite walk of all, as we LOVE having the whole pack together. I often get to go again because Mom seems to think I need a little more exercise. Something about "taking the edge off". I have no idea what she means. I think it's because she knows I love to go exploring. Ammy gets to go a lot, too - it's just that if we go to the walking area in the car, she'd rather not. Mom always tries to do something extra with each one of us - playing in the yard, exploring the yard, playing with a cool toy ...or extra walkies. It's a pretty good set-up and each one of us feels special.

That's about it for now. I've launched into high gear and am ready to do what I do best at mid-morning Monday.

If anyone has any other questions, just let me know. I'm storing energy for my Monday afternoon adventure. Ha roo roo roo!

Play bows,


  1. Your mom's camera is quite impressive to take pictures like that!!

    I'm glad you all have your own nice comfy spots. We have ours too. And, we share them with each other too.

    I think I'm ready for my Monday nap too.


  2. Poor Ammy! Does she get a little woozy in the car? I know I do if I watch out the back window so Momma always insists that I lay down.


    p.s. cool blue camo!

  3. Cool camera and cool pictures! I love the camo bed, so cute! And zimmie, are you having sweet dreams?

  4. great pic - thanx for the answer to the lense question - we have a nice camera but nothing like that lense - our best one ios 70 - 300

    Woodrow - Sweetie - MJ

  5. Yeah...as we said, that picture of the moon is truly magnificent! You can post one of those every day and we'd be more than happy!
    Zim...you have an amazing mom! We know what it is like with four dogs and to do all that PLUS extra stuff for each one of you is fantastic! You are lucky, lucky dogs!
    And that picture of the quilt...again - you guys have a privileged life!
    Love you all
    Lots of licks
    PS OUR QUESTION: What do you guys eat? Luv Max

  6. er, I am a wee bit worried about your Mom shooting the moon.........

    is this why it is so darn dark over here?

    The Dog Who Knows.............

  7. Great pictures and stuffles Zim!!


  8. Thanks for all the answers to the questions.. Dad's hobby is photography and he thinks your mums photo's are awesome.That is some feat getting photo's like that..I love todays shot.. comfort is the word looking at the sleepy , cuddly pics.. Thanks for sharing.. Hugs GJ xx

  9. We love your mom's camera.. Mom wanted one of those big lenses but settled for the 70-200 with the doubler..
    It sounds like you all have your special time with Mom. You are a very lucky Army....

  10. Pretty great life indeed! Maybe Kohana needs a camo quilt... in the past he has prefered to make his own design. Namely shredding all bedding across the floor... I wonder if camouflage would do the trick!! :)

  11. Thanks for solving so many miscellanies Zim! We wondered why you got to go to the Top of the World without the others and now we know! And we didn't doubt for one second that your mom would forget to make a special quilt for Dave and you too!

  12. Hey there Zim,
    We love the questions and answers on here.
    We also love that moon shot, it is very cool!

    Holly & Zac...XX

  13. Wow! Your mom is a great photographer, better than Kelly anyways. I thought that you stole that pic from the web somewhere. Everytime I see it, I want to howl!


  14. Wooos! Mom is very impressed with the photos, what a nice camera she has. My Mom just has a point and shoot, oh well, as long as she continues to take pictures of me! Nice nap , i think I will join you.

  15. My mum wants to be a nerd and ask how long the exposure on the moon shot was. I have no idea what she's on about either.

    I'm glad Davy has his (!) own puffy quilt too.


  16. Hey Zim,
    Wow, your mom and Huffle's mom are fotoholics. We all get to benefit from their addiction. Does your mom know that "Nikon" is Japanese for "Navy." Our mom wants a digital SLR Nikon soooo bad.
    We think that we can keep up with you on your Monday activities, especially the Newfs. Napping is their forte.

  17. Hi, Zim!
    Your quilt is pawesome! I like it a lot!
    Kisses and hugs

  18. Beautiful picture of the moon and also the cameo quilt bed. You look very rested and comfy!!! Very cool!

  19. Woo - Zim great answers and we know that meant you worked hard on them. Gotta rest up from all of that hard work.

  20. Oh, Zim - my human thinks your human is amazing to make the time to do somethign special with EACH one of you...she sometimes struggles to do special things with me and she only has the one me!!

  21. Then it must be time for the other half to get their quilts too. Oh wait, they probably already have them too.

  22. Hi Zimmie! Kool quilt! gotta get mommy to make me one of those..Will join you for that nap! Thanks for sharing!


  23. Beautiful photo! Your mom always has some of the best photos anywhere! You sure are lucky dogs getting to spend all that time with your mom. I'm sure that one on one time is a favorite for you and her.

    I think your Mumma is sooper dooper! You better keep an eye on her... I might try to steal her for myself! teehehe!

    Mr Darcy

  25. WOW... my mom is drooling over that picture! Great zoom! After looking at your mom's camera she realizes it has been 3 years since she bought a new camera.

    LOVE the new quilt!

  26. Dazzling moon shot! Beautiful pups!

    Wow Z-man! thanks for the clarification! i was wondering how everyone got so much one on one time AND a 4-pack walk! Wild Dingo has trouble giving 1:1 time with just TWO! How lucky to have 4 and still feel so special. But 4 huskies MUST be better than 3 and 3 MUST be better than 2 and well, we all KNOW ONE would NEVER do.

    Now we all need to know how the hu-people at the HERD do it so well!

  28. Mom totally wants that camera. :)

    Ooh a nap looks great! I'm going to jump on my comfy pillow or snuggle up with mom.


  29. Hello - I hope "the edge came off".

    Many Harooooooooooooos to you all.

  31. Yeah, my stupid brother gets a lot of walkies, but I'm not too upset because it keeps him from going totally insane. Plus I always get special time that is more Mango speed.


  32. ah, comfy!
    It's ok that you get more adventures, you is an explorer!

  33. AWOOOOO!!!!! great pics! we have been to the moon!!!

  34. but you did really good Mango in the end. change is hard, huh? we know all about it. cheers cool big guy!

  35. lol---sorry that was meant for mango's post--hahaha!

  36. Hey Zim & Co., your human's moon pics are amazing! Were you all howling when she took them?
    Your pal,

  37. I like that Camo quilt, the pink one is still Tanner's favorite though. I saw the pics and can see why you needed to store that energy!

  38. Woo, what a khool moon picture! I don't think my mom's camera can get all the way to the moon, unless, of course, its a picture of Moon, my best bud! Ha-roo roo roo!

    A-roos to yous,
    Jack a-roo

  39. Did you help unmake the bed?
