Highlights from the Week

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim.  I thought today we'd look back at some of the really cool stuff from the week.  Ready to go?

One of the more exciting things started on Tuesday!  The weather for the day started out pretty normal - Mom and Dad in short pants and tees and all.  THEN we actually got rain... then heavy (even for here) winds... then the winds shifted, we got stinging rain... then it happened!  SNOW!  Oh, not much, but it was SNOW!  It was great!  Here's what was left by our walk the next day:

Beautiful, isn't it? A promise of things to come! Sadly, our weather has turned back into being in the 60s. Oddly, Mom and Dad seem happy about this.

Here's another great "weather" event:

10 November 2011 Full Moon

Dave and I made sure to engage in some silly behavior the night of the full moon.  Oh... fine.  Sillier than normal.  Ha roo roo roo!

Speaking of Dave, here's one of his highlights from the week:

He got to try Shredded Wheat for the first time. He said it was very tasty!

Maybe my BEST highlight is from yesterday -- I made a new friend! Mom was walking Dave and me down into one of the cul-de-sacs in the neighborhood, when I spotted a kit-cat! He saw me, too, and came over to say "meow".

I hope that works. If not, to see a video, please click here.

He came right up to me - here he is, getting a bit closer.

"Meow, Zim!"

I went into a "down" so I wouldn't scare him. Mom had a hard time shooting pix with her iPhone and getting Dave on a short leash (Dave was being nice, but was pulling a little) ... so she stopped for a while. My kitty friend got about a foot away from me, then threw himself on his back and was roaching around, asking for tummy rubs!

After a few minutes, Mom thought we should leave, but I sure didn't want to! This is from when Mom was trying to pull me back down the street:

"Meow... meow... Cat!  I'm a kitty cat!"

Isn't my friend CUTE?!?! He was a real nice guy. Making new friends is the BEST!!!

Those are just some of the highlights from our week!  We hope you had as much fun as we did!
