More Work

Woo, everypup and everycat. Dave again, with a report on our work day yesterday. As you may recall, I had a full day ahead of me. I was right about here...

...as I recall. And Mom was right about...


...here. (That's her super-secret big project that I've been helping her with.)

I had worked so much that I sent out for reinforcements. Before I knew it - Zim was helping! Here we are:

IMG_4456 Zim and Dave - helping

Mom said we really helped a lot by running around playing zoomies and neck-grabbies and "ha roo"ing and "woo"ing at each other. So much so, in fact, that she said we could leave the Studio if we wanted to. Wow. We must have helped a lot!

Dad was home by that time, doing his work-out, so SGT Zim thought he'd hang out with him. A little "guy time".

IMG_4464 Zim
Hey Dad! Let's fire this baby up!

I thought Zim was crazy getting on that thing!

IMG_4465 Dave
Woo, Zim...

I stayed out in the Studio. In case Mom needed more of my help.

IMG_4461 Zim
Really! I'm all set, Dad - let's go!

After a work-out on the treadmill, Zim saw Dad doing crunchers on the weight machine. Since Zim is a drill sergeant, he went over to encourage and motivate Dad.

That's it! Get down and gimme 50, Dad!

IMG_4473 SGT Zim & Mike
You call those crunchers? I wanna see those abs ready to pop! Let's go, let's GO!

Then he moved in to encourage Dad some more!

IMG_4474 Zim & Mike
Get going, mister! I'm SGT Zim and I wanna see you sweatin'! You call that...
Aw... Dad! You are sweatin'. How about a nose smoochie?!?

Nose smoochie!??! You know what goes really good with nose smoochies? Hugs. That's when I thought I'd move in and see if I could help Dad, too. I mean - hugs are my specialty!

IMG_4475 Dave
Woo, Dad! How 'bout a hug!?!?

Then... it was odd. It's like we had already helped Dad enough for one day, too.

IMG_4476 Dave
Dad? Dad? Are you in there? Zimmie went upstairs, but I'm here if you need me. Dad?

Mom said we'll be hitting the Studio again today. I hope we get just as much work done this afternoon! Woo.



  1. hehehehehe!!! we liked how you helped so much you were asked to leave the studio--hahahaha!!!

  2. I think your mom is making something beautiful for sure. Could you please come to my house and help train my momma? She is suffering from jolly bottom which is making her pants get shorter and shorter.


  3. Hey, you guys are great helpers. Your folks sure got a lot done because of you.

    We have to laugh. We forgot we had a post scheduled for today, so we rushed to get one out last night. You've already read tomorrows' today, so we hope you'll come back tomorrow to read today's. Unless, of course, you already read that one too. :)

  4. OMD!!!!!!
    you have to do tons of things!!!
    Dave & Zim...you're the best helper in the world!!!!
    Sure your mommy and your dad would be lost without your help!!!
    Your pics are great!!!
    Zim...how many crunch you are able to do???
    We're arrived at 3000!!!!
    Have a great day wih your humans dear friends!!!!

  5. Have you tried cranking Eye of the Tiger? Great for abs! :)

    Woo really know how to keep your peeps on point. That's going to be a lovely .... whatever it is. We just know it'll be extra-special when your mom gets it done! Good job on those cruches, Ao4 dad-- making room for turkey???

    a-roos & woos,
    jack n' tori

  8. Hello! From very, very wet and flooded Scotland!

    Yay! My J has emailed your Ma but she says her email probably turned into Spam. I think it would be very nice to have a Spam email, very tasty. So I hope if it has turned into Spam, you all enjoyed my Jeannie's email!

    Why are you hitting the studio? I didn't think you were violent pups!!

    Loving your work out with your Pa!

    lotsaluv from Marvin who is glad he lives on a very steep hill because all the rain is flooding everywhere else around here!

  9. Help them until





  10. You sure do alot of work for your mom and dad and help them. Even help dad do workouts! I'm trying to motivate my mom into doing something creative or walking everyday but I think she's just lazy lately! I know one thing..she sure could use a good workout alot of times! Maybe I'll get busy like you guys do and just push her to do something!!! Luv, Holly and her mom

  11. We reckon you guys are such a boon to your pawrents!
    Helping with the sewing and instruction on keep fit.
    They couldn't cope without you.
    love and kisses

  12. Mmmmm Daaaaave . . . I think you might need to let the two leggers do some things for themselves. You don't want them becoming too dependent. Ahem.


  13. Zim you are quite the drill sergeant. Keep up the good work.. Hope you got that hug for all your efforts...
    Come on over anytime for some girl talk..

    Big Sloppy Kisses
    Gus, Louie and Callie

  14. BOL!!

    You two are doing a great job with all of this helping! Pitty your Dad shut you both out of the workout room. I hope you didn't get shut out of the studio!!!

  17. Zimmie and Davy, you might have to get Ammy and Stormy to help you next time too. I think you need reinforcements!

  18. Wow - you are really being helpful. We know how much help we are being when we get rewarded by getting to "go outside" and play in the yard. Such a great reward.

  19. We can't wait to see your mom's super secret project!
    You guys are such great helpers!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  20. You pups are always working so hard! Do you want to come visit me in Hawaii for a nice vacation? :)

    Your mom's super secret project is looking awesome!


  21. Wow, Dave, you all have been busy.

    You all are very helpful, we hope you are having a good day today as well. :-)

    Holly & Zac

  22. Hi, Dave!
    What happened?? You were doing very good job encouraging your dad!!
    Kisses and hugs

  23. You guys are wearing ME out!! You are such good helpers!!!


  24. So Zim's a personal trainer, and you're a seamstress assistant! Excellent! Can't wait to see the finished product.

  25. Cool pictures. Forget firing up that thing. Just lick dads ear every time he sits up. We do that to mom
    Benny & Lily

  26. Good job helping your dad with his situps!! I do the same thing with my mom. It helps to sit right beside your human and put your muzzle in their face when they sit up. It's really motivating!


  27. You know what I like to do when Mom is doing crunches? Bite her arms every time she comes down. You should try it. Really.


  28. You two are great helpers for your mom and dad! Sorry they are such slackers that they can't handle you pushing them to get more work done. Geesh!

    You too sure know how to work, but I didn't think drill sgt's hugged or kissed! I'm not sure that's exactly what you'd hear in boot camp...maybe in Sibe Camp! woo!

    Can you guys come over and help Loki and Juno work? they could use a little help in that department. They think work is a 4-letter word!

  30. Hee hee you doggies sure helped out pawsome there

  31. Hi there Dave and Zim!

    It's so good to help our pawrents around. You both have been quite busy there today. Your mom and dad must be proud of you all for all the great things you do --- helping your dad with training really gives a lot of support in getting fit, Zim. And Dave, the stop secret project of your mom is really looking so well. We are awaiting the unveiling of this secret project.
    Oh by the way, Mommy also left a message over at you mom's other blog. She really likes that project too!
    We hope that you would also follow our blog as we enjoy each and every post you make. We love the stories of your adventures.

    - Fudgie, Princess, Frappie, Mocha, Sugar, Scrappy & Bullet

  32. Zim and Dave... you are so industrious! We can't wait to see what beautiful creation your mommy comes up with!

  33. You know you have put in a good day at work when the boss lets you go home early!!

  34. Do you boys get extra treats for all that hard work you do?
