It might not seem like a big deal that a bed Mom ordered arrived - but she ordered it back in the beginning of December and was pretty much resigned to the fact that it would ever show up. But show up it did, and she was all excited about giving it to Zimmie. She let him try it out in the living room. At first, he wanted absolutely nothing to do with it (he has learned the ways of the Siberian sooooo very well!), but then realized it was a good spring board for play-wrestling and doing zoomies with Dave and used it for that! Well done, Zim!
Dave and Zim. Zim's got the high ground!
Despite Zim not being interested in actually laying on it, Mom put it in his usual sleepy spot, washed his really cool polar bear blanket and his quilt, and put those on top of the bed. You know, she thought that would make it all cozy and "his" and that he'd like it. Here's how that went: (please excuse the poor quality of photos; these were taken at bed time)
Hey! What's this under my really cool polar bear blanket and my quilt?
It's that new bed! Hrumph!
Then he went and slept on another bed on the other side of the room. Ha roo roo roo - that's my boy!
The next day, Mom tried showing Zim how comfy it was and asked me to help her out. Sure, anything for my puppy. I tested it out -
Hey, Zim! This isn't too bad!
He said he still wasn't sold on it.
But where are you going to sleep?
I was concerned for his comfort! He reassured me that he had found an alternative sleepy place.
Ooooh... comfy. I'll be fine right here.
Then he said something about Mom could have it if she thought it was so comfy.
Is she buyin' it?
Well, no. Not for bedtime. He did give it a trial last night for a few hours and napped on it a little bit after breakfast this morning. I think it'll work out eventually.
Tune in tomorrow for a look at the snow we got over the weekend!
