Keeping Busy

Woo, everypup and everycat!  It's me, Dave.  I'm still on the injured reserve list, but here's a secret for you:  Mom is starting to break the rules a bit and let me stretch my legs a little.  I've been going down to the corner a couple times a day now, which is great!  I'm not reeeeeeally supposed to yet, but we're being careful.  Just don't tell anyone.  Sure, Mom and Dad and Zim know.  And Big Mean Kitty.  And all the neighbors we run into.  And one of Zim's cat friends and those crazy Cocker Spaniels...  And ... umm ... it would appear that my vet knows after a certain Mom emailed an update to her yesterday ... but other than that, no one should know.  Keep it between us, OK?

In the meantime, I've been keeping busy around the house.  As Zim mentioned the other day, there were guys here ripping our kitchen apart.  Since I can't do stairs, I stayed here on the main level and supervised them.  It was great, but a bit on the loud side.  We also had a bunch of guys coming and going yesterday, doing all kinds of work.  I was pretty wiped out by the evening, as you can imagine.

"Let's snuggle in and watch some TV,  Mom!"

I thought my work was done for the day, but I saw that Mom still needed my help.

"Whatcha got there, Mom?  Whirly Word?  Hmm... need some help?"

It looked like she was stuck on a Whirly Word word, so I offered my services.

"Let me take a look!"

I got that one for her right away, then helped out with a few more puzzles.  Here are a couple screen shots - you can see the words I helped with!

This next puzzle is from the next day, but you get the point:

Mom says I'm a great help and that she wouldn't be able to do these puzzles without me.

"No problem, Mom.  I'm a working breed; I'm always up for a challenge!"

Now to convince her I can do stairs so we can head down to the Studio...



  1. So glad you get to go on little walks. How's the neighborhood?

    Oh the humans need so much help! I'm glad you're there to take charge of the kitchen. Post some updates so we can see pics!



  2. glad you are getting a little more exercise - bet it feels good. and we would have hidden from the worker guys, but we bet you did great snoopervision!!

  3. I am very happy that you get to do little walks. And you are so very smart. I am not so good with helping with those puzzles.

  4. Glad you were able to help her! Your mom isn't very good at keeping secrets though, is she? Oh, while she was emailing the vet, did she tell him about Zim getting chopped in half yesterday? I hope he got stitched back together!

  5. Ha so glad you were able to help her!

    Stop on by for a visit
