Are You Serious?

Hi everypuppy and everycat!  It's me - Ammy!  Zim will get back to you with more pictures and an explanation very soon about just where he and Mom went!  Aren't the pictures of the ocean he discovered amazing?!?!  He's still helping process a bunch of them so I said I could do today's post to give him more time!  I hope that's OK with all of you!

Anyway, a couple weeks ago, Mom and Dad took us all outside to go potty on a VERY starry night!  It was a gorgeous night - crisp and cool and oh, what a star-filled sky!  Dad was admiring this one star that looked kind of greenish.  Since I am the chief meteorologist around here and also like to keep everyone filled in on all things astronomy-related, I decided I should do some research when we got inside and figure out exactly what star it was.

I borrowed Mom's iPad and checked the GoSkyWatch app.  It was just as I thought!  It was Sirius - the Dog Star!  Check it out!

It was very beautiful!

The next time Zim and I went outside, I pointed the star out and told him that it was the Dog Star!  He asked if I was sure and I said, "Yes!"  He looked up and said, "Hey!  Are you Sirius?!!?"  And I said, "Why, yes, Zimmie.  Yes, I am serious."  Hee hee hee!

Here's a totally un-related picture of me, studying the sky out on a walk:

Me.  Ammy.

...and here's a picture of Zimmie after I've told him one of my really funny jokes:

Zimmie.  Trying really hard not to laugh at my jokes.
Even though I'm sure he really likes them.
I think.

Next time you're out on a starry night, look for the Dog Star! It's Siriusly beautiful! Hee hee hee!

Love,
Ammy

  9. Hello there Army (and mom)
    I thought I must pop by before the old year is gone to see how you all are...I see you are as beautiful as ever.
    Wow..I didn't know that Sirius was the 'Dog Star'...I wonder if we are able to see it here in the Southern Hemisphere. I'll have to consult some local Starry expert.
    Anyway, I want to wish you all a really happy New Year - filled with health and happiness.
