Farmers' Market!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim.  Oh, was yesterday a great day!  It was cooler than it's been (in the 80s -- 27-30℃) so Dave and I got to do all kinds of cool stuff.  We got nice, long walks in the morning, then after lunch, we got to go to the Kansas Ocean!  We'll show you pix from that trip tomorrow.  While Dave  grabbed a nap  guarded the house in the late afternoon, Mom gave me the secret sign that she and I could venture out on yet another adventure!

Here's where we landed:

How exciting!  I hadn't been to the Farmers' Market in quite a while!

We looked all around.  That in itself was great fun!  Unfortunately, it's too early in the year for much locally-grown produce, but I did see a lady with a bunch of herbs you could take home and plant. I thought I might be able to find something for some of my friends!

"Excuse me, ma'am.  Do you have any catnip?"

It was worth a try, but she seemed fresh out.

"OK!  Thanks anyway!"

Maybe later in the season or something.

Mom came home empty-handed, too.  Later in the Summer, things will pick up and we'll be back!  And it was still fun to go to the market!

Play bows,
Zim

  1. I like to go to our Farmer Market too. There is this one lady there that has a pet goose (not like me but with feathers) and she pushes him around in a little baby stroller and she makes him wear a diaper. Makes me glad that this Goose can walk on his own and there are no diapers involved.
    Blessings,
    Goose

  2. Trips are fun even when you don't bring anything back. The important part is seeing something new and spending time with your mom!

  8. You always get to go to cool places Zim! I don't get to go to the farmers market for some reason yet I hear there's always lots of other dogs there. Mommy put photos of some on her FB page (the personal Beaded Tail one). Can't wait to see your trip to the Ocean!

    Woos,

    PeeS: The landscapers will also be taming the jungle (aka our yard) besides putting down 6 yds of mulch so that's why it'll take so much work.

  13. You sure had an action packed day. BTW I was making those same squee noises when I saw our fawn too. Especially when she was right under our window.

  16. Hi Zim, I had a bad day. On days like this, all I want is to be able to spend all my awake hours with my pets, the way your mom and you go on adventures together.

    Reading your blog brings back some serenity.
