Photo Finish Friday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats! It's Zimmie here with Photo Finish Friday! My photos today come in response to a question left on the blog yesterday. You all saw how hard Dave works as Mom's Guide Dog for the Color Blind! He's amazing, isn't he? Our friend Max of South Africa wanted to know, "...which of you doggies does the cleaning up?" How serendipitous, Max! I had just posed for some photos after I completed one of my tasks here at Ao4 Headquarters. Are you ready?

Me and my Oreck

That's right. I have my own vacuum. Sure, Mom has the Oreck Upright and the Oreck Canister and the Dyson Animal... but this Super Handheld baby's all mine! (Some of you may remember - I showed it to you a while ago, when I told you about some of my other duties.)

I my Oreck!

Since I was named after a Drill Sergeant, it's my duty to keep everything policed up. That means the floor, too!

Thanks for joining us for Photo Finish Friday. Now get out there and do some cleaning!

Play bows,


  1. What a clean cut boy you are. You need to get your hair cut high and tight!

  2. Your mom needs to hire you out as part of a cleaning service! Think of all the ways you get get "paid" in treats if you did that!


  3. You need to come visit us in Scotland - bring your Oreck with you!!!
    Our mum has waited all her life to meet a dog like you!
    Well we are very good at making a mess - lots of great hairs everywhere - what more could she want?
    We just loved your collage - you looked so busy we were worn out!!!!
    love and kisses
    Martha & Bailey xxx

  4. Zim, is there nothing you aren't good at? You are pawesome!

  5. Mom wants to know if you can come to our house once you finish at yours! We're not helpful like you are! Mitch runs and I attack and she says that neither one gets the job done!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  6. Zim..you clean the floors? Wow!! I wish you were at my house!! You and the others sure are talented! I think that is great!!

  7. Hi Zim...My Mama wants to know if you would like to come visit Texas and take care of her floors...??

    Smiley Giggles!

  8. You sure have a lot of tools for sucking up the floof. Guess you need it with the four of you spraying your furs everywhere.


  9. Wooos! Cleaning? I think that means for me to drop more fur on the floor, there never seems to be enough to cover the floor , but I am working on it!

  10. 0k, sorry I have been missing in Dyson........sorry Action.

    lots of stuff goin on here with older Vacuuum Cleaners shall we say, none of which belong thankfully to my J. I am hoping beyond hope or bark, or woo, you can read between the lines here.

    Suffice to say, the Oreck is kinda gap in our life too far..............

    although Jeannie says she would quite appreciate an Oreck Vacuum in her life.

    Think there may be some kinda hidden pun there.........sorry!!

    We hope to be firing shortly on all new Dyson, Oreck, Vacuum cynlider cleaners shortest time!

  11. oh Zim, meant to bark out here.

    If you were named after Drill Sergeant, why are you not called Drill?

    he he he he he!

    Hope Ammy appreciates my joke, Drill!!

    or should I be formal and bark, Drill Sergeant!!

  12. Wait a minute, when Adrill visits you, is that Adrill Sergeant and are you related? We are confused.

  13. Wow! You pups work so hard over there! Wanna come to Hawaii and help clean my house? :)


  14. Dad wants to know if you are maybe a Jarhead in disguise, Zimmie.


  15. Definitely a jar head in disguise. But since my Mom just got me a high and tight hair cut, maybe we could enlist together?

    *kissey face*

  16. wow! you are such an industrious boy... my momster says that she may try to dognap you!

    err..friday isn't finished until Zim comes over to Wild Dingo with that Orek thingie and does his job...

    Zim, I always knew you'd be the neat one in the family!

  18. Hi, Zim!
    Oreck is your friend?? Hmmm...
    Those monsters scare me a lot!
    Kisses and hugs

  19. My mom has been lusting after the handheld Dyson. If she gets it, do you think she will make me vacuum?


  20. Hey there Dave buddy
    Okay, Okay...you owe me now...big time!!! Mom has just logged off her 'puter and has shot out the door. I think we are in for a hard day of cleaning up. I think ALL of us are lined up too for a bath. Oh dear...what have you done, Dave? Inspiring my Momma with household cleaning is dangerous! Eish buddy!

  21. So if Dave is the seeing Color dog and you're the cleaner-upper, what do the other two do as jobs?

  22. Yea for your hard work and all your household help, Zim! But I am here to wish the Army a very Happy Door Bell Ringing Halloween!

    I also want to ask Ammy if she knows what kind of Witch lives in the Desert?? A Sand Witch of course, hahahahaha!

    Candy Kisses,

  23. Wow a doggie who does floors...Momma would like you to come train us that trick!

    Wags and Licks,
    Mollie Jo and Bobo

  24. Do woo do windows, too? Mom says come right over!
    ha-roo roo roo!

    a-roos to yous,
    Jack a-BOO

  25. We will have to send Holly over for some lessons Zim!

    Holly & Zac. :-)

  26. Hey...Zim....ummm quit with the dogs who work kinda posts ok.

    Sheesh, y'all are gonna give my Mama all kinds of ideas about what I could do when I'm home all day!

    Hey Zim,
    Are the House Detective because you "police" the floor? And when you're done do you take "arrest?" Get it? Arrest = a rest. Always have to explain things to the Army types. The front of the ship is the bow and it's forward. The back of the ship is the stern and it's aft. The area of the field with the goal post is the end zone, we know you've never seen it but just trust us on that.
