Who We Are

Monday, April 04, 2011


Ha roo, pups and kit-cats!  It's me, Zim!  Did everyone have a good weekend?  We had a blast.  Well... kind of literally yesterday, as it was windy even by Kansas standards.  When Dad got back from yesterday's round of the golf tournament, once again he and Mom thought we should all go on another walk together!  This time, Mom remembered the iPhone.

Here I am, ready to head out:

"C'mon!  Let's get this party started!"

We headed up to the water tower area. Mom and Dad didn't want to take us too far because even though there was a lovely breeze blowing (well... actually 40 mph wind gusts...), it was warm! We had record-breaking temps - our official high was 92°F (33.3°C).  Dave and I aren't used to that yet! We were OK with a shorter walk - there are GREAT sniffing opportunities by the water tower!

"I smell coyotes!"

We hear the coyotes at night; I think the water tower area is one of their stomping grounds! Mom does a lot of that funny "ZimmieGetYourSnooterOutOfThere!" thing when we're up there. I have no idea what that's all about.

Here we are coming down the home stretch:

As you can see, Dave was ready to hit the water bowl!  I admit, we got pretty hot out there.  When we got home, it was all we could do to grab a quick drink, race around doing zoomies for a bit, then get some of this in:

Never fear! After we all had dinner, we were ready to entertain Mom and Dad for a while.

Mom's zoomie shots aren't the best, but you get the idea!

I hope your weekend was as fun as ours!  Oh!  And the really great thing is that those 40 mph wind gusts brought in a cold front last night!  The winds are still cranking out like crazy - but it's 40°F (4.4°C) now!  Ahhhh.... much better!  ...at least me and Dave think so!

Play bows,


  1. I think our weather is very much like yours, except maybe our nights aren't getting as cold! It is very windy today!


  2. woooos guys! Wow, 92 is waaayyyy to hot for this huskerboo, try to stay cool,


  3. You guys sure had a fun day, but at the same time I bet you were wishing for snow. You gotta air out your belly. You wereprobably sweating after your adventure

  4. Zim, you sure know how to sleep like a log!

  5. Looks like you had a great time and sounds like fun.

    Be careful in all that wind, don't get blown away. We have winds here around 70 mph right now. EEK!

  6. Man can you send some of that warm weather our way? So tired of the rain and cold!
    Looks like a fun day! Especially the after dinner entertainment!

  7. Woo, 92*???? that's quite a jump! We hear the coyotes out here too, they live down the hill. We've heard they've been sighted in the neighborhood too, but we've never seen one in our yard. Hmmm, maybe that has something to do with the fence????

  8. That is a big change in temperature! I hope you are well prepared.


  9. Looks like a fun walk even though it was so hot out! Glad you got some rest before you zoomies too! Our grandpa told us about the hot weather then the winds and then some rain/hail storms so we're glad you are okay!

  10. Z-man - We totally love your sleeping style. Looks just like Rusty. Maybe you two are long lost brothers?

  11. Glad you had a nice weekend!
    Kisses and hugs

  12. Tell me about it! The weather's a joke too over here..:(

    Mommy even thought of shaving me.. to help me cool off!
    Can woo believe it?!


  13. 92 is too hot too soon! We prefer the 40's too, guys! What a nice weekend you had!

    Love ya lots

  14. Can't believe that your day and night weather vary by 50 degrees!!! Love your trips to the water tower and KS Ocean!!! Well... thanks for coming along on our trip to Monterey and Carmel - we had a great time and know your pawrents must have enjoyed living there a ways back!
