I've Been Accused!!!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats! It's me, Zim. Grab this by the neck and give it a little shake - I've been accused of sticking my snooter into the Geraniums!!! Can you believe that?!?! Crazy talk! It all started yesterday morning...

Mom went out to do the morning garden-watering stuff and wanted a picture of these:

Oh, I know what you're thinking. She's GOT a picture of them right THERE! But no. She wanted to... oh, I have no idea.  But she wanted to shoot them again. Whatever. I offered to go help.

Mom hooked my leash to the front door handle, then backed up to start taking photos.

"Wow, all these plants are getting so big!  Hmmm... what's this in here?"

I thought I'd show some interest.  You know, just to be polite.

"Oh... yeah!  And over here!  What's this?!!?"

Before I knew it, I heard those words. You know them by now - "NononoZimmieno!"  I figured Mom was just cheering me on, then I heard this CRAZY accusation that I was sticking my snooter into the Geraniums and trying to eat them!!!

I've heard this before (a few times.... here and there...) and I just couldn't believe it!

"I can't believe you'd accuse me of such a thing!"

It was so outrageous that I wouldn't even comment on it one way or the other. I mean - REALLY!

After a bunch of "tut-tut"ing and getting my snooter brushed off for some reason, I decided to sit and pose nicely by the posies:

"Here's the money shot, Mom!"

Gardening is so much fun, isn't it? Oh... wait!

"Wait!  What's this?"

OK, never mind. I thought I saw something in there.  (Check out Davy in the window!  Ha roo!)

Are you helping tend your gardens?  Remember to keep cool!

Play bows,


  1. Your plants look so healthy and GORGEOUS! What all is in that pot?

  2. Zim-
    Those plants look amazing! What green paws you have, I mean green nose..heehee


  3. That's just rude! How dare yer Mommy accuse you of such a thing.

    We are not even never allowed to help! Our mean Mommy says we gets dirty feetsies and stuffs! Geez Mommy!!!

    Bobo and Meja

  4. We're kinda thinking 'No harm, no foul." I mean those things look just as good as they did in the other picture (and WHY did she need more pictures?!?), so I think any accusations are totally unfounded! ;-)

  5. Do you believe they accuse you of such a thing!!Its all a set up. There should be no geraniums by the front door snooting grounds anyhow

  6. Oh my. This is becoming an epidemic of accusations against us four legged innocences.

    I can see you were only checking, anyone can see you were only looking.

    OK, yes, you did have a little somethin on your face but it doesn't mean you were eating.

    We must start standing up for ourselves and educating our humans better.


  7. You know, there is just no pleasing some humans. First its all, "oh pose in front of the plant" and then the minute you try and do a little pruning out comes the NONONOZIMMIENO! Make up your mind lady.


  8. Woof! Woof! First WOW on your plants ... caused of the heat most of our plants are not looking good. You know there are times leaves just falls off ... Happy Weekend. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  9. Zimmie, that is just outrageous. I mean, there is no evidence of you actually eating anything that you "aren't" meant to. I am worried about your mum. She is clearly delusional - obviously the heat is getting to her. Maybe she needs a nap in your bathtub.

    Don't worry bestest friend, I got your six.


  10. Zim, you did a great job with those plants! We can't figure out why your mom accused you of trying to eat them when you clearly were clearing the dead pieces off so it'd grow better. Maybe she's been out in the heat too long.


    PeeS: Davy peeking out the window is cute!

  11. Hey Mr. Perfect Zim . . .You are accused Unjustly.!! Wrong, wrong!


  12. No fair! What an accusation!
    We love your plants! Very vibrant in colors and beautiful! Cant wait for us to have our own garden someday!


    P.s - We can see woo Dave!!

  13. What a pretty plant! Be careful, Zim, something about those flowers is going to get you in trouble!


  14. Hey there Zimmie!

    How could she do such a thing?! You were just doing some art direction for the photo shoot, right? Right?

    You sure have a great garden out there. Too bad Davey did not join you in the flashy box shot.

  15. Sure are some pretty flowers and how could she even accuse you? That is so unfair.

  16. We just love the last picture of you sniffing the leaves and Dave spying from inside, Zim!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  17. Oh MY!! How could she even suspect such an innocent face???

  18. Obviously you were just tyring to fluff up the plants for your moms picture. duhh. heheheh
