Rock Star

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim!   Saturday, Mom and Dad slipped out of the house for a while without me or Dave -- without us!  How crazy is that?!?  But that's not the worst of it.  They came back smelling like ... like a friend of mine.  Do you remember in October when I got to go shopping at the rock place with Mom?  (Click here to be reminded of what an awesome trip it was!)  That's right!  They smelled like my Golden Retriever friend Sandy!  Both of them! I just couldn't believe they'd go out there without me.

I'm not going to pretend I didn't pout a bit which could well be why Mom and Dad were whispering about something on Tuesday, then Dad said, "... and you should take Zim with you."  What?  Even though I didn't know where we were heading, I jumped into the car, game for whatever lay ahead!

Mom said where we were going was a surprise - but that I'd probably figure out where we were going before too long.  Hmm...

"Where are we going, Mom?"

We went past the KSU stadium and the Vet School, and kept going and going and going.  There was only one place I could think of that's way out that way ... and ... and ... and ... I was right!!!

We remembered each other right away and just had the best time walking all around the place together!  My friend Tara was there, too, and she remembered us even though we'd only met her one time!  What a nice biped!

Mom wanted to look for some Russian Sage and for some rocks.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah.  The Russian Sage is in there.  Now where did Sandy go?"

I mean - really.  Where were Mom's priorities?

Anyway, Sandy and Tara helped us pick out just the right boulders for Mom and Dad's project...

"I like those Tuscan Field Stones for what your people want to do, Zim!"
"You're the expert!"

...then it was time for us to head back home.

"I'll come back again soon, Sandy!"

Being the gentleman that I am, I am not going to comment on what we may or may not be doing in that photo.  Ahem.

Anyway, Mom was thrilled with the rocks we bought and with the Russian Sage plants.  As for me, what a great surprise, getting to go with her -- and to see my "rock star" friend, Sandy!  I sure hope Mom and Dad have another project that will entail going out there.  And soon!

Play bows,


  1. Sandy is awesome! Don't work too hard, my friend!

  2. wow - what an exciting trip!

  3. You and Sandy sure make a great pair. You both have the same color furs. It looks like you both enjoyed yourselves.


  4. Zim is that a little kissy face going on at the rock place with your rock star? Hope you get to go back soon.


    That looks like so much fun. Do you pull really hard on your leash and try to pick up a few things for yourself while you're at the nursery?

    Oh...that's just me? Maybe that's why I don't get to go anymore?


  6. You were so lucky you got to go! Sandy sure is pretty.

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  14. Field trips are fun, and friends are even more fun!

  15. Oh Zim - what a cool outing you went on! It's so nice to find dogfriendly places that doggies can go to as well. And Sandy is gorgeous - am not surprised you wanted some privacy with her - hee! Hee!
