Watermelon!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim!  Did you think it would be Dave because of the title!??  He's not the only watermelon lover in the family!

Did you see our friends Maggie and Mitch's reminder last week about National Watermelon Day?  We joined the celebration, we're just a little late posting a photo - check it out:

Look at how red and juicy that is!!! It was the best watermelon we've had this Summer!!!

I hope all of you got a little taste of watermelon to celebrate this great event!

Play bows,
Zim

PS: RE: Dave's photo from yesterday - he's fine! He has a boo-boo on his footy-foot that he wouldn't leave alone, so Mom made him wear the party hat when she couldn't have "hands on" him. He's great at laying on a pout-fest guilt trip, isn't he? Ha rooooo!

Sidewalk Surprise Saturday!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim!  So there we were, out on our morning walk...

DSCN2229 Zim spots a cicada
"JACKPOT!!!"

I couldn't believe my good fortune!  Right in my path - a huge bug!

DSCN2228 Cicada
Cicada - or in the Latin, Snackus Siberius

Known in some parts of the world as the Cicada, they are known as tasty, crunchy, noisy snacks in the Siberian world! ...if you can get to it before your mom or dad.

True, I missed pouncing on that one...

DSCN2233 Zim
"Catch you next time, bug!"

...but Dad wasn't quite fast enough when I spotted one earlier in the walk!  Ha roo roo roo!

Isn't it great when you can combine two fun activities - snacking and walking?!?!  What a great start to the weekend!

Play bows,
Zim

Photo Finish Friday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats.  It's me, Zim, here with Photo Finish Friday.  Since it's been so toasty out, Mom has been trying to get us boys to burn some energy off in the afternoons in a "productive way" - whatever that means!

Basically, since it's too hot to go on an afternoon walk, we've been playing with toys or helping out around the house or  posing for photos on  working out on the treadmill.  Stuff like that.  Yesterday, Dave was playing with his Squeaky Newspaper, so Mom decided to introduce a new toy to me.  It's a canvas Squeaky Panda.  I didn't know what toys were until I was adopted, so sometimes new toys ... well ...

"What the heck IS that thing?!?!?"

Ha roo roo roo!  Happy Photo Finish Friday!

Zim

New Fabric!

Woo, everypup and everycat!  It's me, Dave, Guide Dog for the Color Blind!  I'm all kinds of excited about some new fabric we got in!  The box came yesterday and I just knew right away it was something really cool!!!

DSCN2204 Dave
"Woo!  These are so COOL!!!"

It's a collection of really cool Army-themed prints!!!

DSCN2207 Zim
"Oh, yeah!  VERY cool!  Let's de-box and get a better look at them!"

Zim liked them, too, as you can see!

I have to have first crack at them, before they go in the wash, though.

DSCN2209 Dave and Zim
"Don't look, Zim!"

I mean - it's all part of my duties as Mom's Guide Dog for the Color Blind.  Besides... I think Mom and I are going to make something cool for him. And for me.

DSCN2211 Dave and Zim
"Dave!  Really?!?"
"Don't look at 'em, Zim!  It'll wreck the surprise!"

....is he still back there?  He's not looking at the cool new fabrics, is he?

DSCN2214 Dave and Zim
"He's not looking, is he?  I want to surprise him!"

Now... what to have Mom make with these!?!

DSCN2215 Dave
"I    these fabrics!"

Luv,
Dave, GDFTCB

Duties As Assigned

Woo, everypup and everycat!  It's me, Dave - Guide Dog for the Color Blind.  Mom has been working hard down in the Studio on a new project.  I already gave her the go-ahead for everything she's putting together color-wise, but my job description also includes other "duties as assigned".  One such duty has me working very, very hard!

See, for this project, Mom is cutting up old pairs of blue jeans friends and family have sent her - then she uses them for part of the quilt.  My job?  Guard the jeans.

"Stop right there!"

It's a tough job, but somepuppy's gotta do it.

Luv,
Dave

Unimpressed

Ha roo, pups and cool cats, it's me, Zim! It's Monday, isn't it?

DSCN2165 Zim
"Hmm..."

Yep. Monday. I'm not overly impressed so far!

Play bows,
Zim
