Hit The Trail With the Boys, Part II

Woo, everypup and everycat. It's me, Dave, here with Part II of the cool adventure Zim and I went on. When I left you the other day, we'd just gotten off the second part of the trail. Sure, that meant we were heading home, but when you walk with Zim it means you can find something to get into of interest no matter where you are.

At one point, I looked over at my little brother...

Hey, Zim - whatcha doing?

...and he was in full stalk mode!

Got something in my radar, Dave. About to pounce!

And look! Look what he got!

Ha roo, bug!

(You can click that for a closer look.) Of course, Zim being Zim, he didn't hurt the little grasshopper. He just communed with it for a few minutes, wished him a "hoppy day" (Ammy's not the only comedian in the family!) and we were on our way.

"Hoppy day." That's a good one. I've got to remember to tell the Yammer.

Then when Mom thought we were about out of gas and might pose for a couple pix, we hit our second wind.

Race ya home, Zimmie!
You're on! Last one back to Ao4 Headquarters has to buy a round of water!

Here we are in the home stretch.

I had him by a nose!

Zim and me back at Ao4 HQS

But really, I think we were both winners! It was a cool adventure. We walked for about an hour and it was all we could do to zoom around the house when we got back. Mom took the girls on a walk when we got back (you saw a couple photos yesterday!), so they were real happy, too. We all did zoomies together after they got home. Well... we zoomed and mom did that really funny, "You guys, PLEASE!" thing. Ha woo. I think she really likes it or she wouldn't say "please". Zim said she was asking for more - so we delivered!

Thanks for coming on our trail walk with us! Oh, and to answer one of the questions our friends the Bumpass Hounds asked, no, we didn't sing "Happy Trails to Woo" as we went. But ever since you left that comment, Mom's had that song stuck in her head. Good one, you guys!



  1. I have never been out of gas..........or so I am informed.

  2. Dave, those are GREAT pictures of you and your devilishly handsome smile! *faint*

    I gotsa say that I had a laugh when you said that you all "ran out of gas" but then had a "second wind"... it reminded me so much of my momster! BOL!

  3. Great walking adventure boys!! Silly humans, we never really "run out of gas" we just putter sometimes, and then get going again! Zoomies are really the best!!


  4. Cool walking adventure - you look very happy!
    We did wonder how your mom would manage four dogs - we reckon she must get twice as much exercise!!

  5. Grashoppers make for great amounts of fun!

  6. I am supposed to be on a break, but your pics were so nice, and restful, I came over to see what you were all up to!

    Thank you for sharing! Your friend, Marvin - who cannot totally leave the dog blogs, but might achieve it one day...........

  7. I wanna see the zoomies too!

  8. Can we see the zoomies some time? That sounds like a lot of fun! Your trail adventure looked fun too and we liked your "hoppy day" joke Dave!

  9. Now I have that in my head too!!

    Looks like y'all had a great walk :)

  10. What awesome walkie pics and MAma loved the grasshopper!!!

    Happy Trail Smileys!

    PeeEss..Now MY Mama has that silly song in her head!

  11. Now Dad is humming Happy Trails to Woo. Gee, thanks.

    Zim - we think we saw that little guy today, too. He tried to go into one of the show rings during Obedience. Minor distraction, as you can imagine.

  12. We knew that Zim wouldn't pounce! So is he the grasshopper whisperer?

    Princess Eva

  13. Wow, your human sure is nice to walk you for an hour! The most I get is 30 minutes...harumph!
    Your pal,

  14. Now that would be the day. Out of gas. Does she mean you guys? I think not you never run out of gas..

  15. Your mom must be tired now huh after double walkies. When I was a baby, Momma took three walkies every morning; me, Raja, and Grandpa Angus (of course that Angus didn't go very far). I guess that's love, huh?


  16. Hi, friends!
    A very nice walkie. A very nice talk with a bug. A very nice day!
    Kisses and hugs

  17. Zim, I love it that you don't eat the grasshoppers. They have so much fun hoppin' around. The other day we walked into a whole mess of them and they even got on my coat. But then they hopped off!
    My Mom has a good story about when she was little and grasshoppers, maybe she will tell it oneday.


  18. Oh Bother! Now "Happy Trails" is stuck in MY HEAD!!! Loved the walk Part II - you guys have no end of energy and you definitely DID find a BIG bug!!! Looks yumzers to me! Proud of you guys to leave it.

  19. Hey Army Brats,
    Hoppy Trails to You
    until we meet again,
    Hoppy Trails to you
    keep smilin on til then

    Dave, you should have looked at zim and said "Ahhh grasshopper, Confucius say a bug is as likely to hop as a leaf is to fall."

    See, we're comedians too.

  20. What an awesome walkie! I really like your colors for your leashes - they compliment the both of you very well.

  21. I can't believe that my bestest friend Zimmie would lead Davy astray. Seriously. That bug must have said something to him.


  22. Wicked walk guys, thanks for taking us along! Soo..Zim, what was the bug saying to you..?


  23. Thanks for sharing your cool adventure! I see you made a new friend! He looks like the one mom and dad saw on their trip.

    Love that last pic! :)


  24. Hi there Dave!

    We had fun tagging along with you to the trail. Mr. Hopper is funny. heehee

    Til the next trail adventure then or maybe Ammy and Storms trail next time would include some shopping. Mommy says shopping is a girl's thing.

  25. I have fun with the grasshoppers too but mom is always yelling at me not to hurt them! I just like the way they jump around and I do too! Love your pictures as usual...you guys are beautiful.

  26. thanx for taking us with you on your walkies - what a great time
