Serene Scenery Sunday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats. It's me, Zim. I'd like to start today by thanking all of you for the very kind comments you left yesterday on Snuggly Saturday. Today I'm sharing more pix of me and the bear - or as Ammy said when Storm gave us our blogging assignments, "This bear's repeating." Ha roo roo roo. (If our dear friend Marvin is out there reading, I think he'll like that one.)

So anyway, we were doing the whole photo shoot with the bears thing when we got this really sweet award from that gorgeous babe Brownie.

Thanks, Brownie!
Thanks, Brownie!

Brownie said the rules are:
- put the award on your blog
- shout out to the Purple Hatter, award-maker!
- share a photo of how you've shared sum luvins
- give the award to 5 more bloggie buddies

That third rule fit so well with what we were doing, that I'm dedicating these pix to the "Showing Some Love Award". I just adore the bears and developed a nice bond with one of them. It was quite the ... serene photo shoot for me. (Not so much for the girls. Ha roo roo roo!)

After Mom shot the snuggly scenes you saw yesterday, I asked if I could spend a little more time with one of the bears. I put the big bear on our cool blue camo quilt, 'cuz that's a real comfy spot.

"Can we have a little privacy here?"

Mom said she was more than willing to trust us together, but that I might want to find a safer place for Big Bear to hang out.

"Hmm... yeah. I don't want Dave or the Jaws of Steel to get ahold of him!"

"OK, wait... I have an idea."

I decided to take him into the living room so he could watch TV and I could watch him.

"You stay there, little fella."

"Are you comfy?"

I made sure he was settled in and comfy. He doesn't get out much, so I wanted to make sure he had everything he needed. You know - the whole serene thing.

"Can I get you some popcorn or anything? A beverage?"

He seemed good to go, so we both settled in for some quality one-on-one time.

He's really great to hang out with. We both felt very peaceful and enjoyed that "comfortable silence" between old friends.

Trust me when I say...

...not only did I have a serene moment, but Mom said seeing me and the big bear together painted a very serene scene for her.

Play bows,

PS: We'd like to pass the "Showing Some Love Award" along to my bestest friend, Huffle Mawson; the Basset Babes, Martha and Bailey; Max Dog and his family in South Africa; Isabella, Sadie and Angel over at the Beaded Tail; and those gorgeous babes Sitka (my main squeeze!), Tia, and Cornelia Marie!


  1. Zim, please stop looking so adorable. I swear Misery Mistress has fallen in love with you.


  2. Hey there you guys.
    Another lovely post which leaves us all with a warm and 'fuzzy feeling'! Your photos are stunning (as always) and your pooches could have their very own published coffee-table book!!! Thanks too for the award. We really appreciate it and will have to put our thinking caps on to design a very special post. (Thank you, but please give us some time. Mom says that her mind is a bit slow at the moment)
    Anyway, thanks for happy post.

  3. aw you look adorable kiss kiss

  4. Aw, we just loved that post Zim - made us feel all warm and fuzzy seeing the tender loving care you bestowed upon that bear. Very nice pictures of you with your bear Zim - we think that like Marvin you are getting in touch with your feminine side!
    Would you be just as loving with a basset?
    We are quite cuddly after all - sort of like a bear except not so well behaved!
    Congrats on your great Award and thank you so much for sharing it with us.
    We will post about it soon.
    love and kisses
    Martha & Bailey xxxx

  5. What a nice award and such a cute cuddly bear =)

  6. Ah, Zim, how sweet! I love the way you take care of things. You'd have been a good Dad!

    Yesterday your sister Ammy said that she was worried about you.

    But, you know what, I'm not! You always make me feel happy!


  7. Oh my godness, no wonder your mum felt all serene.. My mum just melted at those pictures.. she went all oohs and ahhs on me.. I have to say though I agree.. Just gorgeous.. Hugs GJ x

  8. What wonderful bear photos. You are really nice to your bear friend Zim. You just might win.

  9. I love the denim couch cover. :)

    Cute pics Zim!


  10. Zimmie, you are too kind to share your award with me - thanks so much! I love the pictures of you with your bear, he's very cool.


    By the way, mum was looking at your blog at work and her boss walked past and said, who's that gorgeous dog? So there you go!

  11. Zim, your post is SO cute, mom went "Awwwwwwww!" and smiled when she read it. That usually only happens with posts about puppies. Nice job!

    a-roos to yous,
    Jack a-roo

  12. Zim, you are totally adorable with the beautiful bear. Love the pictures. You did a great job of protecting Big Bear too! Also, I noticed your collar...it is really very good looking on you!!

  13. Hi, Zim!
    Very serene!
    Sure you are taking good care of him!
    Kisses and hugs

  14. Very Serene - at least compared to the stuffing piles that would have existed if certain members of The Herd had been there.

  15. Zim, you are just the sweetest! We love how you took care of that bear and we are feeling pretty serene now too! Congratulations on your award and that you for thinking of us!

  16. You wouldn't hurt him, right?


  17. w00fs, me loves all ur beat piksurs, heehee but me coodnt do that...me wood have to play baby wiff them...

    b safe,

  18. I don't think it is possible for you to get any sweeter, Zim! Congrats on your award! I loved yesterday's photos too. I find it interesting how some of you guys are all about the camera and others not. I'm a not kinda dog.

  19. Zim, you should've been named Zen...you are just too cool in all your shots! I think you have a good shot at the contest; good luck!
    Your pal,

  20. Congrats on your award!

    You took such good care of the bears, Zimmie! Sooooo cute! :)


  21. There is nothing better than an old pal to hang around with!

  22. You are such a great host to your old pal, bear. Did you two have tea? I am sure you have had something to talk about. What did you share. Or are you REALLY the strong silent type. They were great pics Zimmy. You are a great friend for not destuffing and for sharing with us.

    Have a great day buddy,

    Oz and Zozo

    PS. He wouldn't have stood a chance with us crazy folk down here.

  23. Wow. There's No Way I'd be able to spend that sort of serene quality time with a stuffie, erm, bear. You, on the other hand, are a gentleman!

    Please bear with me while I think of a "barely" witty reply

    Bearing in mind,you look so adorable, I may have to transfer my affections from dear Dave to Zim.

    I am in a quandary. I have no idea what a quandary is, but it seems I am in one.

    Bear with me, as I said earlier.

    Bearing up well while I recover from your handsomeness!!

    The Profound ONe.

  29. Hey Zim and other Army Brats,
    Always very good photos, your mom's a pro with the camera. We don't want to hear about getting in touch with your feminine side. It's enough to say that you're a considerate pup with feelings.
