Indoor Football

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim, here with more about what I did after my long vet visit the other day.  After a short nap, an even shorter walk (it was mega-hot), and a bite to eat, it was time for some fun!  Football sounded good, only Mom has this crazy rule about "no footballs in the house". Yeah ... well, Dave, Dad and I decided to play anyway, only without the ball.

"That works, right?!?"
"Come on, Zim!  Me and Dad against you!"

Tell me that doesn't sound like fun!  It was great!  So great, in fact, that I'm switching over to cartoon mode like I like to do.  Let's play football!!!

"You're going down, Dad!  Ha roo!!!"
"Blue 92!  Blue 92!  Woo!  Woo!  Woooo!"

Dad was the center and Dave was the quarterback.  I was the entire opposing team.

Dave did a quarterback run (probably because he didn't have any  retrievers  receivers to throw to) and scored!   It was a great game!

For the next round, us guys took on Dad!  Since Dave did such a great job as quarterback during the first game, we decided he should hold the same position on our all-Sibe team.  We had a special trick play all set to spring on Dad!

"Red 47!  Red 47!  Ha woo!"

As you can see, I was in the GO mode as soon as Dave finished the snap count!  Then we launched the play!

"Got it, Dave!!"

That's right - the ol' Statue of Liberty Play!  As Dave went back to pass, I ran up behind him, took the ball from him and ran up the field with it!  We completed our play before Dad knew what hit him!  We stopped to mug for the camera like football players like to do:

"Hi, Mom!"
"Hi, Mom!"
"Dave, I think I'm the one who's supposed to tackle Zim, not you..."

Dad's got a different notion about football than we do.  Ha roo roo roo!  Oh, and note Dad is the only one not looking at the camera.  Bipeds!

We played another round of the tall guys against me -

- I'm not sure who won, but I know we all had a blast!

I wish you all had been there with us!  I'm sure my mom wouldn't mind.  I mean - it's not like we were playing with a ball - right?!?  Ha roo!

Play bows,


  1. You boys (all three of you) sure look like you were having a great time. I can't believe you still had energy for that after your marathon vet visit!


  2. Looks like you had a great time. Mummy tries to tease us with a "pretend" ball sometimes, but we usually don't want to play with those. However, lazer pen is a great game :)xx

  6. WOO HOO! Oh I so wish I could have been there. I am a GREAT running back. I have never been tackled, not once! Oh yea the Statue of Liberty play that's a good one. And the score does not matter as long as fun fun fun was had by all.

  7. Ha, the link just worked! Wonder what that error 404 is? We are always getting it.
