"Not Allowed on the Furniture"

Play bows, pups and cool-cats. It's me, Zim. Did you read what Dave wrote yesterday about how we are not allowed on the furniture except for the biped bed? Yeah, well, I have other ideas about that. Do you remember our Christmas pictures? Then you might remember the sitzbank and how very, very comfy I looked up there. Remember?

Since then, I've decided that baby is mine - all mine! Here's a pic Mom took of me back in the end of December that I've been meaning to share:

Ha roo roo roo. "Not allowed on the furniture"! How does Mom come up with these things?

And Stormy is right, as always. It pays to be cute. And if Mom's taking pix, you're not reeeeeeeally in trouble.

Play bows,


  1. Hi Zim!

    I think I would like Dave's nice cushy bed better than your hard wooden one. I mean if you are gonna sleep on that chest, you might as well be sleeping on the floor. I'm just sayin'.

    Stella, who sleeps on her Mom's bed whenever she wants to.

  2. Great place for a nappy cause only one of you can fit on it and that's you! Who needs an old couch anyway?

    Darling picture!

  3. Not allowed on furniture. You look awful cute, so you surely can't be in trouble.

  4. oh what a funny name........."sitzback" kinda does what it says on the tin, kinda thing. Sits back. I like it, I like it very much!

    Plus your photo is beautiful, very artistic too.

    Cute and artistic, no wonder you can sitzback!

    ha ha


  5. I guess you've found another piece of furniture that you're allowed on!

  6. I think you should be allowed to go wherever you want Zimmie. I am. Well, except for the kitchen bench and table. But anywhere else.


  7. Furniture was made for us dogs ;-)

  8. Zim you really look adorable!! I bet looking cute gets all of you lots of things. Who could resist your looks! Lots of love, Debbie and Hollydog

  9. Oh what a comfy spot you have found.. Keep looking cute you may get to sit on other FUR-niture...

    Zim, that's totally not even furniture. doesn't even qualify. Get up on the nice plush sofa, heck, put all 4 paws up on the kitchen counter. I think THOSE places are furniture!

  11. Great job Zimmie!!! I think that looks like quite a comfy spot! And I agree, if she's taking pictures, it's totally allowed!

  12. It seems to me that you just got to flash those eyes and you can sleep where you want.. Hugs GJ x

  13. Funny how when we do something we aren't supposed to, the human grabs the camera. Why oh why do they do that?

    P.S. - No stay off furniture rule here - yes!

  14. I like that! "If mommy's taking pics, you're not really in trouble." I'm going to remember that philosophy. The Beagle from down the road also told me that a wise human once said: "Furniture has no say in life."


  15. I love that picture of you!
    Very artistic!
    Kisses and hugs

  16. Just do what I do and wait until they leave and then hop up on the couch. When you hear the garage door or the keys hop right back off. They will NEVER know you've been laying on the comfy furniture.

  17. Believe you me, being cute saved our lives. BOL

  18. There is a "no dogs on the furniture" rule here too. EXCEPT on that furry comfy outdoor bench my dad made just fur me! I like your bench too, Zim!

    a-roos to yous,
    jack a-roo & maybe moo

  19. Zimmy, you look very handsome resting on that piece of non furniture. I mean, if you aren't allowed on the furniture then that must not be furniture, right? I can't imagine you ever getting in trouble with that adorable face of yours.

  20. Well, there is a reason it's called fur-niture! And we certainly have learned that if the flashy beast comes out, we can keep on doing what we're doing again and again!

  21. Africa is not allowed on the furniture either, but if she looked as cute as you on it I might have to let her stay. I'm with you on this one!

  22. All I hear is "allowed on the furniture..."

    I choose to ignore the No usually... it works alright I suppose.


  23. Nice and comfy! Have a nice snoozle Zim!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  24. We can only comment that your presence only serves to enhance the sitzbank!
    Your bipeds are lucky you chose to grace it with your beautitious self.

  25. That looks like the best seat in the house!!

    Woofs and Kisses!

  26. That's true! If they grab the camera instead of yelling at you, then you're in the clear!

  27. That looks like the perfect spot for you! :)


  28. Hi Zim- the picture looks like a painting. It's nice of your mom to give you a very comfy bed to sleep on. Ozzbourne is allowed on all beds and only is allowed on the sofa if his blanket is there. He lets us know when his blanket has been removed or is a mess. You dogs are so smart.

  29. Just saying hi! The OP pack sent me your way. :)

  30. hehe, Zim

    and as you look so adorable on there, of course they can't make you get off...hehe

  31. We never used to be allowed on the furniture however when the pup came mum let us on sofa to get peace from her. Now we all get up hehehehe.

    Keep up looking cute Zim and you will worm your way onto all the furniture hehe

  32. Looks like a good place to nap!

  33. I think you should keep using that for a while and then move over to the couch.


  34. How do you get away with it? We can't. but we try.

    Hey Zim,
    Think of this as just a beachfront like the beaches of Normandy. Now you have to advance inland to the living room FURniture.
