Serene Scenery Sunday: Saturday Re-Cap!

Woo, everybody!  It's me - Dave.  Yesterday, I told you about our big plans for the day and about our new quilt.  Since it was all so very serene, I thought I'd post a re-cap of the day's events today!  I was REALLY helpful to Mom all day long, so I've got lots of this on film.  Are you ready?

OK!  The quilt first!  It's just a nice, poofy "throw" for us guys!  It's got flannel on one side, with cool scenes of sled dogs and polar bears and arctic foxes and stuff.

Me.  Dave.  On our new quilt.

It's so comfy! I just love it! It sets off my blue eyes real nice, too, doesn't it? Oh... but it is for both of us.  Here was Zim's first reaction to it:

"Oh, yeah!  I totally dig this!"

The other side is a really cool wolf print:

The flip side!

I like that side, too! It's not flannel, it's a polished cotton. Umm... you know. In case you were wondering.

Anyway, the day started with breakfast and a nice, long walk with Mom:

"Almost home, Zim!"

Dad is in a golf tournament this weekend, or he would have joined us! Go, Dad, go!

When we got home, we did zoomies and got treats, then did some of this:

"Dibs on the new quilt!"

Before I knew it, Dad was home and it was time for lunch. After that, Dad said since it was so nice, how about we all go for a walk together!? It was great. Mom forgot her camera, but we had a great time and walked a really, really long time!  Zim and I got big drinks when we got home, then we headed downstairs. Zim hopped in the bathtub for a snooze (don't ask...) and I went to work in the Studio.

Mom was going to use sort of a medium blue for the binding on that big quilt. Seriously!  Did she think I was sleeping?!?!? I got up and told her that was NOT the right choice!  I chose the navy with red and tan stars (it's the border for the block third from the right in the bottom row -- can you see it?).  Much better.  (I've had a lot of input into this quilt from the very beginning!)  (Oh... and yes, it's taken Mom a while...)

I let her get that put together, then we all went upstairs.

"What are we going to do now, Mom?"

Oh. See my Eukanuba bandana? It was in the Studio. I asked if I could put it on and Mom let me. Woo.

Mom said it was time to make dinner, so I did some snoozing. After that, it was time to watch the basketball tournament!

"You're on the furniture?  Are you sure you're comfy up there?!?"

Sadly, we're not allowed on the living room furniture.

Since Mom didn't cave and come sit on the floor with me, I decided maybe a little serenade was in order.

Zim joined me for a while, too. It was really beautiful! Mom must have really liked it, because before I knew it, we were doing this:

"How about 'deli'?  Did you do that one yet?"

I multi-tasked:  snuggled and helped Mom with her word game.  I mean, Siberian Huskies are working breed pups!

Isn't that the best way to spend the day?!?  I hope today is just as serene for all of you!

  4. Those quilts are amazing! What lucky dogs you are. Hey, listen, I just want to tell you that you are totally one of my most favorite blogs to visit. For sure. But with momma cutting back on my internet time, I won't be around as much. I will make her let me read your posts, but we might not comment. Just wanted to make sure you knew that I think you guys ROCK!


  5. I don't know if I'd call that serene, Davy, it looked pretty busy to me!


    p.s. I hope your dad did good in the golf tournament.

  6. I loved being a part of your day. So much fun. The quilt is beautiful!! I love the collage of you with Dave in the floor. :) Adorable.

    Your quilt is pawesome!

  9. Gorgeous quilt! I hopped over here from Honey's blog, and I'm glad I did! I should ask my mom to make me a quilt like that! I would do it myself, but I have no thumbs, you see. I also have blue eyes, so a quilt like that would be perfect for me!

  11. Love your new quilt!! Mom actually has a blanket made out of the wolf print that her and dad got for their wedding from dad's sister. It's very cool!
