How To Stay Busy ...

... when it's over 100℉ (over 38℃) outside!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats - it's me, Zim!  You might be wondering just how Davy and I are staying busy while we go through these hot, hot days we call "Summer" here in Kansas.  I start my day nice and early, just like always!  I like to get Mom up at about 3 or 4 to go look at the stars and enjoy a little fresh air.  Mom rewards me with a little snack afterwards, so I'm sure she's all in favor of it.  Anyway... I like to get Dad out for a nice, long walk by about 0530; while we're gone, Davy takes Mom for a shorter one.  Perhaps coffee on the deck afterwards (our deck is shady in the morning), then breakfast, and another walk with the Deeve and Mom.  After that ...

Yep.  As a 12 1/2 year old, that early morning exercise still does one thing for me -- gives me MORE ENERGY!!!  Ha roo!  I had a GREAT round of zoomies this morning!

"What a blast!"

After zoomies ...

Oh.  Yeah.  Well, it's just a coincidence that there's a cool air vent right there!  I was hard at work --really!

That kept me busy until about 0930.  Now to dream up some cool adventures for the rest of the day ...

Stay cool everyone!  And stay entertained!

Play bows,


  1. sounds like a great way to start the day!! We love zoomies!!

  2. Zoomies are always a good way to start the day!

  3. I like how you start your day! I get MOM up at 4:30 but she has to get up anyway to go to work. I just make sure she is up and at em'.

  4. I always like to see your zoomies.

    And I was just about to say I spotted the cool air vent :) Perfect way to keep a guard on alert, don't you think?

    I'll be back,

    PS Remember to blog for kibbles (use the Pedigree badge).

  5. OMD OMD you get up...
    BEFORE BREAKFAST. Not ME... unless I am FORCED.
    PeeS... that RWB "Quilt" is really just a thingy mom bought at that Frenchy place called J.C. PenNay.
    The Bedroom Bathroom and Den that are... Downstairs..are ALL decorated in RW&B and Sailor stuffs beclaws my dad was in the Navy.

  6. I'm always excited to get up when Master wakes at 4:15. Boris, on the other hand, likes to snooze the morning away. Then Master starts yelling, "BORIS! BORIS! GET UP!" You can imagine that Mrs. Master (who is always sleeping) thinks that's really fun too.

    Those zoomies sure look fun. I bet you get really good traction on the carpet. I have to be careful inside b/c we have all hard woods. NO FUN!


  7. we usually wait and hold our zoomies until the evening. gonna have to try the early morning version - maybe we can get fed earlier (though we suspect it may just get us locked out of the bedroom).

  8. Sure you start your days full of energy!
    It is pawesome!
    Kisses and hugs

  9. Wow, what a busy day you have. Your doing good guarding there, nobody is gonna get in. I bet those stars look amazing too, i'm sure its well appreciated :)xx

  10. You are an early riser, Zim! Us too! The early bird really does get the worm, doesn't he!
    Stay cool!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  11. That is a great way to start the day Zimmie!


  12. You guys sure get a lot done in the mornings, we really like Zoomies in the morning, wakes the whole(mom) house up. Bonus that the vent is right by your guard post.

    The silvers and more

  13. It's easy to stay entertained by coming by to visit you. Looks like you had fun with that zoomie session.


  14. Your zoomies look like a lot of fun Zim! We wish we could zoom after you!

  17. it's important to stay connected to your inner puppy, Zim! ;/ Our mom thinks we're strange but we like to soak in a sun puddle when it's super hot outside (we can enjoy both the sun and the air conditioning :D) Hope you found some other mischief...er, we mean fun adventures to occupy the rest of your day!

  18. Slow down Zim!
