Exploring!

Woo, everypup and everycat!  It's me, Dave!  I had a really good weekend - my back & neck felt pretty good, it was sunny and cool, and guess what?!?  I got to go exploring! Check out the look on my face in this photo:

Do I look happy enough?!?  Oh, sure, I've been down to the corner, around the corner into the cul-de-sac, and even around the block ... but I hadn't been up the hill by the water tower in quite a while!

Check out what Zimmie and his shadow did once we hit the crest of the hill:

I don't know how he does it - but his shadow seems to be looking to our left ... and Zim is facing straight ahead.  It takes a special talent to do that!

Zim and I took a good look around up there:

I tried to get my shadow to do fun stuff, too, but mine seemed to follow me pretty close and do everything I did.  Go figure.

Here's Zim, heading back down toward home:

I think he had as much fun as I did!  We had such a blast exploring together!

Mom had fun, too, and took lots of flower shots during our walk.  She did some cool special effects on a few of them - check out these wildflowers:

Some people call them weeds, but Mom said if they're as pretty as these are, they should be called wildflowers.  Woo.  If you'd like to see a few more flower pix, you're welcome to visit our special effects set on FlickR.

Time for me to get a quick nap in!  I hope you enjoyed exploring as much as I did!

Luv,
Dave

  2. Those are indeed some very pretty wildflowers. My mom has the same philosophy as yours. "If it blooms, it's not a weed!"

    I suppose your shadow just wanted to let you have a good time so it stayed out of the way!! VERY considerate, if you ask me!

  7. We're glad you are able to go exploring now Dave! We think Zim's shadow must have seen a kit kat before he did.

  8. Oh yes! WE call those flowers.

    Master works at a high end grocery store and they sell dandelions at a very high price. I think we should be dandelion farmers!

  9. Please tell your mom to get pics of the show. Mrs. Master is always talking about how funny the pics of your dad play bowing to you were (after you were on the ottoman).

    She's easily entertained.

  10. It's great to see you out and about Dave. I feel the same way as your mom about the weeds vs. wildflower thing.

  18. Im so glad you are feeling better and was able to get out! We have wildflowers here in Texas - they are a big deal - people even mow around them if they pop up in their yard. I love your wild flowers.

  19. So glad you're feeling better Davy! You'll have to get to work training your shadow like Zimmie's.
