Work Duties

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim.  There I was last night - I'd had my dinner, went on a short walk with Dave and Mom, and was just starting to look for something to  get into  do.  I saw Mom get the big quilt out of the dryer and knew I had work to do!  Between being a Working Breed pup and being named after a drill sergeant, it is my DUTY to help change the sheets!  I flew into the bedroom and got right to work!

"Alright, Mom!  I want these sheets as smooth and flat as a mirror!"

I smoothed and resmoothed and then smoothed some more!  Mom kept messing up my work and ... it's like she was trying to pile the sheets in the center of the bed!  It was crazy!

"Ha ROO!"

I mean, it was fun, but there was work to do!!!  She'd pile them up, then I'd flatten them back out!  Wowzers, was it taking us a long time!

Mom kept cheering me on with that "ZimmieComeOnZimmie!" thing!  She's real sweet like that!  Guess who else came in to cheer me on?

"Wooooo!  Go, Zimmie!  Go!!!  Woo!"
"Thanks, Dave!  It's a tough job, but somepuppy's got to do it!"

I'm not sure what happened, but I ended up like this:

It's not like I hadn't been in that position before ... but I couldn't for the life of me figure out why Mom kept piling the sheets on top of me!

Dave went around the other side of the bed to admire my work:

"Hey, Zimmie!  Those are the old sheets.  The clean ones are over here on Mom's dresser..."

Oh.  Well ... Mom could have saved all of us a lot of work if she'd made that clear from the get-go!

A Working Breed pup's work is never done!

Play bows,


  1. aww:)) sooo cute .. you two are awesome, including Dave who is clearly Mr. Moral Support...:)

  2. Hahahaha, so funny. I also just changed my sheets last night but I had no puppy to help me ;( care to lend a paw this coming weekend?

    Have a fab week!!!!


  3. mom says this is why she shuts the bedroom door when changing the sheets (btw - we think Dave may have been laughing at you in the one picture)

  4. Zim, you are such a great help to your mom. I love the look on your face in those pictures. You look like you are about to jump off the bed and do some zoomies around the house.


  5. Wow, what a lot of fun changing sheets is with you involved. Tell mom I also love the quilted wall hanging with the trees on it.
    Have a wonderful day!

  6. Zim you are welcome here any day to do a bit of housework. Will pay you in bones. Have a lovely Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Zim!! Oh my goodness I help with the sheets too. MOM does not call it help though, but I can't remember what she calls it exactly. Something called hindrance I think. I believe it means Super Helper in German or Latin. Think of what we could do if you and I worked as a team and if Dave gave us encouragement.

  8. Now THAT looks like fun!

  9. You just can't expect humans to communicate clearly what they want done. Sheesh.


  10. Wow, what a super helper you are! Your mom needs to learn some communication skills.

  11. Zim, you are so cute! We have bed monsters in our bed too but it's not near as big as yours! Good job helping your mom tame those monsters!

  12. I don't know what your mum would do without you. She'd never get anything done, really.


  13. What would your mom ever do without your great help, Zim?!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  14. mol! you know, Zim, we think your mom was trying to play with you to get out of doin the work! It's a good thing you are there. Really. Funny thing here tho, whenever our mom needs to get something done quick, she DOESN'T want our help...go figure...

  15. Poor Zim.... you did all that very much hard work fur... Hey... I was Gonna say Nothing... butt guess what? I think it was actually fur FUN.

  16. Zim, I have to admit I am kind of laughing at you a little. You are kind of goofy. I have no doubt that you were a big help, but the part where you got tangled up was maybe a bit scary.

  18. you are very handsome. Thanks for your birthday wishes.
