Flag Day/US Army Birthday!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  SGT Zim here today to tell you about TWO big celebrations at Ao4 Headquarters!  First off, it's Flag Day in the US! This day marks the anniversary of the adoption of our nation's flag back in 1777!  As part of our celebration, Dave and I posed by our flag:

There was a lot of talk about us not being too cooperative, but I wasn't really paying attention, so I can't tell you much about it. I do know that it took two photo shoots, a bunch of tries to get the "money shot", and we'll have a few days of "out-takes" to share with you.  We had tons of fun!

Dave and I even posed individually. Here's one of me:

"Happy Flag Day!"
And here's the Deeve:

"Happy Birthday, US Army!"

He looks really cool there, doesn't he? He was doing his tough-guy look the whole time. Check him out in this one:

"Anybody tries to touch this flag and they'll have ME to deal with!"
"Way to be, Dave!"

I couldn't help but admire him!  Seriously - is he the best big brother a guy could ask for or what?!?!

Today is also the 236th birthday of the US Army! I'm not sure how much that is in dog years, but it's a LOT!

Happy birthday, US Army!  HOOAH!!!!

We were having tons of fun not cooperating, but decided to give Mom the "money shot" after a while. We both opted for the tough guy look.

Happy Flay Day everyone!  And Happy Birthday, US Army!!!

Play bows,
Zim (and luv from Dave!)


  1. You pups look great by your flag! It's always great to have a birthday to celebrate. Is your mom baking a cake?

    We have been catching up on blogs and although we are not commenting on all posts, we wondered if in honor of the Army birthday, you should call them out to deal with Maude, TBC. Just a thought.


  2. We love your tough guy looks especially since we know you are both sweethearts! Happy Flag Day and US Army Birthday!

  3. My Vickie wanted me to tell you that every time we see your blog, she is taken with how handsome/beautiful you guys are.

    It gave her a great idea that she is gonna put on my blog in the next couple of days.

    Hopefully you guys will take part after all you inspired the idea.

  5. Hey, pups, you've got the look of that Patriotic attitude: "Don't tread on me!"
    We learned that the Gadsden flag "Don't tread on me" was the unofficial flag of the colonies before the red white & blue flag was adopted officially 234 years ago today! Pretty cool, huh?

    Happy Flag Day & Happy Birthday Army!
