Working... Always Working

Ha roo, pups and cool cats. It's me, Zim. As many of you know, I like to pull my weight around the house - pitching in to help Mom wherever and whenever I can. So when I bopped into the bedroom the other day and saw her making the bed, I jumped right in to lend a paw.

"Oooh, sooooo comfy!"

I tried to get her to leave the bed as it was - you know, to save her some work and all - but she insisted on pulling the sheets and quilt up to the top of the bed.

That was cool with me. Being the hard worker that I am, I dug in to help. In fact, I dug all the covers that were at the bottom of the bed, and piled them in the middle. You know what that meant!

"Oooooh, yeah. Even comfier!"

I know, some of you are wondering if "comfier" is a word. I had more important things to do other than worry about my vocabulary.


Before I knew it, Mom said I had done more than enough. Can you believe that? She was worried about me over-working. Mom's pretty sweet like that. She gave me the old, "Thank you, Zim! Good enough!" and pretty much chased me off the bed. I saw her start to work again, but before I could jump up there to help...


...Dave and Storm had already stepped up to the plate.

Are we stellar examples of Working Breed puppers or what!??!

Play bows,

PS: Note to Paco, Milo and Maya: We cannot get your blog to scroll down. We can in Google Reader, but not while on your blog! We read your post, via 'Reader, but can't leave a comment. Is anyone else having trouble with it?


  1. Zimmie, you are AWESOME! What would your mum do without you?


  2. Excellent help with the chores. Very hard work for one pup. Glad you had assistants.


  3. Great work Zim. As ever. But where is happy Ammy?

  4. Hey there,Zim
    That is super cool of you to do that for your Mom! BUT...I'll let you in on a secret:...The reason why Mom asks you to help ON the bed is so that you don't run trenches in her passage/house (and force her to work elsewhere)
    Eish! These humans are complicated.

  5. You 3 are great helpers, I am sure you do the dishes just as well as making a bed. =)

  6. Wooos Zimmie! you are all such hard working dogs, you deserve a nap!

  9. Very good job of working on the bed!! I think you all should take the rest of the day off and do something fun after all of the work on the bed!! Very good job!!

  10. We are soooo impressed with all your hard work Zimmie and how good for the 'army' to help out!
    Yes you are truly a working breed.
    Great pics!

  11. Woo! You pups sure worked hard! I think I need a nap after reading that post! :)


  12. You guys are ALL excellent examples of our Working Breed!! Zimmie, you did a great job on the bed!! Humans just never appreciate all the work we do!


  13. Oh you pups are just the most gifted helpers I've ever seen. You certainly know what to do with bedding! Kudos to y'all! And yes - emailed them to let Paco and Milo and Maya that their blog was unenterable, speaking of vocabulary!
    Hugs xo

  14. I have looked at your skilled bedmaking and right now, I am going to go in an work on my Mom's bed.

    Its the least I can do to help her.


    PS, we have long had problems with the blog of Paco, Milo, et al. and wrote it up on my blog. It turns out many of us are having these problems with the blogs that are using lots of "bling", Smile boxes and the like. Simplify your blog and you might get more visitors is what I say. Look at blogs like Huffle, Splorin'Wolfies,Army of 4,
    Stella's World, Thundering Herd just as an example.

  15. You make us feel very sleepy just looking ay you.

    Fluffing up the covers is such fun isn't it?..hehe

    Holly & Zac. :-)

  16. what great helper pups - definately working breed pups

    we are terriers but tend to like to work like that too - we are great bed makers

    Woodrow - Sweetie - MJ

  17. Great work you did there. I am sure your mum realy appreciates it.. Hugs GJ x

  18. oh how I love a relaxed position, oooops sorry, post!

    I pull my weight in certain areas.

    Like snoozing, housework, and generally Comfiying.

    Comfying is a grrrrreat hobby.

    I suggest you cultivate it to the Max, one day you may all be as good as me.


    btw when do you get holidays, you all deserve one soonest, this sleeping it so tiring!!!

  19. Zim you do such good work. Louie is always helping mom make the bed too..

    Dave, no our tennis balls aren't special that way to have sqeakers in them. Hey the Red's count hear the squeak anyway..hehe

    I'm exhausted just looking at how hard they work! Makes me almost want to... zzzzzzzzzzzz

  21. OOoh....I like your method of working, Zim! :-) That's just like my motto: Why do anything standing up when you can do it lying down? Hee! hee!

  22. Zimmie, you really live up to the working breed status! Your mom is so lucky to have your help! It's good that Dave and Storm also helped to hold the bed down too!

  23. Woo is all so furry helpful! We likes to help Maw too. We also become the heaters at night and keep ma warm and cozy on da cold nights we is starting to git.

    Husky kisses,

  24. What wonderful examples of a working breed. Did Ammy have the day off?

  25. Hi Zim! Great job there in assisting with the chores. The word comfier sure exists in the canine dictionary!!


  26. Hi, Zim!
    Yes, you are always working!
    Comfier sounds like a good word!
    I have the same problem with Paco, Milo and Maya's blog!
    Kisses and hugs

  27. What on earth would your Mom do without you helping her? I like to do my digging in the bed about the time Mom and Dad are falling asleep ;o)

  28. You do great work Zimmie! And Storm & Dave too! But were is Ammy?


  29. Wow! I'm impressed! You're all great workers!!

  30. Zim, you are such a devoted boy. Anyone would be happy to have you as a worker I think!

  31. You are such good helpers! What would your mom ever do without you?!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

    We are MOST impressed :)Hard work indeed, hope you had a decent rest afterwards guys.

    Love, Josh and Jessie

  36. Pups! Take a break once in a while.

    We had company last weekend and when Mom was making up the guest beds for them, we helped. She tried to lock us out of the room so then we hid under the bed.


  37. Mom has been working TOO much so we haven't been visiting bloggies, sorry guys. We are all caught up now!

  38. What a great group of helpers you all are!

    Mmmm...and I think comfier IS a word!


    PS....Mama had a lot of work lately, so not much time for reading and commenting. We are catching up now!
