Treat Dispenser

Ha roo, pups and cool cats. It's me - Zim. Did you catch Dave's post yesterday? Yeah. We're all pretty tuckered out from the big weekend, but I've still got lots to do, and not enough hours in the day to do it all.

For example, I'm supposed to be putting on some weight, as per my vet's orders. But seriously. How's a guy supposed to recover from entertaining his uncle AND find time to eat? Mom's helping. Really, she is helping me multi-task. Here's a little video we put together showing how I can have a great daydream AND get a little snacking in all at the same time:

(If the clip won't play, please click here to view it on FlickR.)

I'm a highly trained professional. Do NOT try this at home!

Play bows,


  1. We thought it was totally unfair when Kodiak was given doctors orders to gain weight. he got extra treats, nose scratches, special food - sigh. So unfair for the rest of us. But he is the biggest weight-wise among us (Natasha, of course, is still the biggest ego).

  2. Zimmie, that is totally awesome. You have your mum so well trained!


  3. Wow, I thought Flash had it easy but Zim, you have him beat, paws down.

    Remy (who is supposed to lose weight)

  4. Oh my word, that made us LOL.
    You really have the humans trained so well over there! haha

    Sweet dreams Zim! :)

  5. Training moms are the best!! BOL
    Benny & Lily

  6. hahahahahaha
    Oh Zim! I don't know how you are comfortable sleeping like that, but when treats come to you, while you're napping... you can't pass it up can you?!

  7. That was fun watching your mom feed the fish, we mean feed you in the Kansas Ocean! We hope you get so many treats that you gain the weight that you are supposed to!

  8. BOL...you're so silly.

  9. Zim!
    That is a pawesome technique!
    Enjoying your treat without changing your position!
    Kisses and hugs

  10. What a great video!...Love the silly sleeping position with your head under the chair, but also love that your Mom is THE treat dispenser=we know you aren't spoiled, handsome Zimmie, you are just really loved and that is so awesome!...kisses...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  11. Do your sibelings get jealous that you get extra treats in your sleep? I now have a new favorite movie! I knew you slept in that corner from seeing photos before but I didn't realize you had your head under the chair. You are one funny boy!

  12. Now that's the life! Comfy in that Sibe-pose, shading the light from your eyes under the sofa, AND getting hand-delivered treats. Zim, you are the FiveSibes' hero!

  13. We are so very jealous - the vet never tells us to gain weight!
    How cool to have trained your mom to be your very own treat dispenser.
    We loved the video,
    Martha and Bailey xx

  14. Is that what they call breakfast in bed, Zim?

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  15. Loved the video! You have one awesome mum! :) Kodi x

  16. I want to be told to gain weight!!! That's so unfair!

    Oh, and are you part contortionist? I have no idea how you can get yourself in that position. Quite the doga performer there Zimmie!

    OMD, don't work too hard on eating that treat. it looks like complete torture! geesh...

  18. Wow! You can eat and sleep at the same time? That is an advanced move.
