Photo Finish Friday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats! It's me - Zim! Before I get to Photo Finish Friday, I wanted to respond to a few comments we've received over the last few days! We've had some really great comments, and love each and every one of them. These seemed to call out for a response, though! Let's go!

First up, some comments on Dave's (err... Damianos') post from yesterday.

Dory and her Mama wanted to know if we'd share mom's Moussaka recipe. Well, Dory, it's an old family recipe, a secret family recipe! So sure, one of us will post it very soon; no problem!
Marvin, the best poet in all of Scotland, gave us this verse: Rice is nice. Stormy said that even though she spits out plain rice, Marvin's poem was brilliant in its simplicity and was right up there with "Il neige sur Li├Ęge". Given the current meteorological conditions chez Marvin, that seems about right!
Africa wanted to know what was on the cuke spears! I don't think this is a family secret - it's just a drizzling of bottled Kraft Light Raspberry Vinaigrette. Mom says it's very fresh and crisp tasting!

A general update on my new bed! Since Stormy told me it was comfy and Mom washed my really cool polar bear blanket for me (mmmm... I love the smell of fresh laundry!), I've decided I like it after all. It's a memory foam type of orthopedic bed and I have to admit, it's mighty comfy. I still prefer Mom and Dad's bed... but this one will do.

Remember Sing-Along Saturday? Some really great and kind comments on that post! We like to break out in song maybe once a day. It's our way of celebrating! Two of our friends in the Bumpass Hounds and Kitties pack left us audition tapes in their comment - so we could get a quartet going! Alex and Max - you two ROCK! I LOVE your voices! I think we'd all blend really well together. Let's set up a date at a recording studio!!! We just ... need to keep Alex well away from Dave.

OK! Thank you so much to all of our readers! Your comments mean a lot to us!

I helped Mom run some errands the other day and saw the most remarkable thing! Long-time readers of our blog might remember our many, many encounters with the Giant - or at least all of his stuff. Just when I thought we'd seen the last of all the Giant things around here ... well ... there we were, driving down the road ...

Mom, do you get the feeling we're being watched?

Then I saw it!

Holy cow!!!

Can you believe the size of that guy? And he's got a weapon. Oh, sure, it looks like a fork, but again, get a load of the SIZE of it!

Is he still looking at me?

Dave said they have guys in Texas called "Longhorns" that are real big, too ... but I don't know that they're this big!

Play bows,


  1. Zim, that cow is VERY disturbing!! Did he ever quit looking at you?

    Have a pawsome weekend!
    Woofs and Kisses!

  2. phew, I was a bit worried when I saw that HUGE COW on your blog Zim! I thought my J may have slipped some funny juice in my drinking water at first, and I was seeing strange things.

    But when I peeked again, it was still there, dearie me, what a fright!

    Thank you for the shout out too, my poems are getting very short lately, but a poet has to diversify his style sometimes!

    lotsaluv, Marvin xxxxxxx

  3. BIG COW! And yes, looks like long horns too!

  4. Hi Zim, we agree with you that Marvin has surpassed himself with the 'rice is nice' poem!
    Simple yet stunning. Now as for that cow - we thought perhaps that encounter called for some Shakespeare - What is this I see before me?
    Remember Zim we dogs trust scent over sight - did it smell like a cow?

  5. Good grief!!! Zim, stay away from that monster cow!! And the weapon is disturbing. Maybe that cow has lots of friends to back him up and that's even a worse thought!! I think you should go a different way next time. Please stay safe!!! Lots of love, Debbie and Hollydog

  6. Hi Guys,

    As long as your car isn't red, you'll be safe! But just to be sure, we'd get the heck out of there!

    Riley and Star.

  7. Zim...that guy is WAY bigger than the Longhorns we have down here!!

    ...and they are not as SCARY


    We will be watching for that recipe, we won't share it with anyone promise!

    Smileys for luck with that monster cow!

  8. Sorry Zim that it a Hereford and they really are good eating.. Mom called them white faces when she was a kid.. They do get pretty big though..
    What a great post. We love reading the comments too...

  9. Hey Zim and the rest of the AO4, Now that would be some good eating, if only we could get our dad to grill us up a few of those huge monster's ribs when he grills his ribeyes. We dont need the fork.

    Woo Woo,

    Remy and Flash

  10. Being in the car is one thing, But Never, Never, Ever Walk that way. Whoooa, I don't like big scary things like that!


  11. Oh my God, Zim - that would have scared me to death!! You are awfully brave to have that monster living near you...what if it comes to your house at night? EEEeeekk!

    Honey the Great Dane

  12. One must have a comfy bed!

    Watch out for the giant moo and its trident!! It could go on rampage, which I don't think would be the best of situations....

    Your pal, Koda

  13. dearest zim
    its furry true we have those giants rolling about in our fields here in texas
    they are quite calm but boy do they toot something toxic BOL
    you can ck some out in our max entry about 3 weeks ago

  14. Holy cow is right, that is HUGE!

  15. That's a lot of bull, Zim! i'd be worried if he was eyeballing me, too!

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

  16. That is one big cow! Why does a cow have a fork though?

  17. Dat's a mighty BIG cow!
    Did it moo-ed?


  18. Maybe that cow is the offspring of Paul Bunyon's cow, Blue? You could call it Red.


  19. That is one very HOLY COW! And a holy fork to go along with him!

    Did you go out to him and try to sniff him to say hello?

  20. Holy COW Zimmie (that was for Ammy)! I hope you got away from that thing safely.


  21. Just for Marvin - Wow! Cow! How?

    By the way, we noticed the sign that seemed to say that cow was for sale or lease. Maybe it is looking for a home. Not sure if Dave is ready to share that bed yet though.

  22. Hello Zim,

    We agree with Dory, that secret recipe dish looks yummy!

    Thanks for letting us tag along with you on your car ride. That cow is HUGE! (and so is his weapon! what a scary sight)

    We enjoy your posts and we are happy to leave comments. Thank you too for your comments and more importantly, for your friendship.

    -Fudgie, Princess & the Piappies

  23. That cow is HUGE!!!


  24. Holy Cow indeed, Zim....it is huge!

    Holly would probably have to bark , she has a problem with cows and horses.... which basically means she likes to bark at them...lol
