Who We Are

Work, Work, Work!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats.  It's me - Zim.  An exhausted Zim, I might add.  I've been helping Mom with Studio stuff.  Sure, Dave's her Guide Dog for the Color Blind, but I have my duties as well.  Mostly, I head up Security, but I'm also into Quality Control and "duties as assigned".  Take the other day, for example...

Mom promised a friend she'd post a tutorial for a pillowcase she's made numerous times.  She got the instructions all written up ... but what about a photo of the finished project?  That's where I was needed!

"You want me to show off this pillowcase?"

Yep. A modeling gig. Oh, the work involved!

For the "money shot", she wanted a pic of me with my head on the pillow.

It's a good thing I'm a member of the Working Breed class otherwise this could have been way too much to do in one sitting.

"Does this shot make my ears look big?"

I need to get some rest.  There's no telling what's going to be my next "duty as assigned"!

Play bows,

    I don't know...you might be receiving a home visit from DDAFS...the Department of Dogs and Family Services.

  2. Is this a paying job, Zim, or do you just get gratitude for it?

    None of my business, really, but just curious!


  3. Sounds like one cool job you got there!

  4. Mom would like to apply to be your assistant.... she could use a comfy pillow and a nap!!

  5. Phew Zim, all that hard work! I hope Mom pays you in water melons!

  6. You make a great model Zimmie! Very professional! But, yes, lots of work going on there!

    Excellent job!


  7. Zim, you are such a professional to model that pillow without even putting a dent in it. We hope you got lots of treats for all that hard work!

  8. We hope there was serious overtime pay involved.

  9. You know supermodels get paid 10,000 treats per day. I hope you got your full entitlement!


  10. Zim you make that pillow look GOOD! :)

  11. We sure hope you're getting paid well, Zim! You are a VERY handsome model!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  12. OMD! Your studio is a gorgeous panoply of red, white and blue - what fabulous projects and that pillow is just beautiful! But mayhap not as handsome as you, Zim! We've heard that modeling is not all glamor, but hard, hard work - hope you got a lot of either cookies or green papers to get 'em!!!
    Hugs xoxoxo

  13. Hi, Zim!
    Sure you did a super duper job modeling with the pillow!
    Just looking at you... I know it could be a selling hit!
    Kisses and hugs

  14. Wow! That's a lot of work! I hope you got some serious remuneration for all that. Or do you working dogs do that sort of thing for free? (The horror! I'm glad we're in the 'slacker non-working' class. Heehee.)

    But you did an excellent job showing off the pillowcase!

  15. Good job, Zim! You deserve a rest!
