The After-Dinner Show

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me, Dave.  I thought I'd show you a little look at our evening routine.  After we've had our Supper-Dupper and gone on a walk, we all like to hang out together in the living room.  It usually goes a bit like ... this:

Welcome to the After-Dinner Show starring ...

"Woo!  Mom?  Where's Mom?  Mom!"

Dave ... as the Snuggler!

Co-starring ...

IMG_0061e Zim
"Who ... innocent little me?"

Zim ... as the Zimstigator!

Well ... anyway, Zim then either does a round of zoomies to entertain us all or goes over to his bed by the fireplace to catch some Z-time.

Even that's part of the show!  Check Zim out over there -

"Just when I have this arranged the way I like it ... Mom messes it all up!"

He works hard getting it comfy.

"Perfect!"

Mom thinks that's a show in and of itself.

IMG_0071e Dave
"Oh... Zimmie!"

As for me, I'd rather settle right in ...

IMG_3055e Dave
"Hi, Mom!"

... and get down to snuggling!

"How 'bout some tummy rubbing, too?!?"

Yep.  That's pretty much how it goes.  How do you guys stay busy in the evenings?

Luv,
Dave

  1. My humans watched TV ALL NIGHT LAST NIGHT. I needed some play time. Boring humans.

  2. Ah heck, I would love to see that show in person. And that is a very comfy looking blanket.

    It is so darn cold here that our night starts at sundown with a little bit of work, feeding and bedding the guests, then we just hang out in the main room by the heater. A little tv a littl computer time, then sleep, blessed sleep.

  3. Nice one pals. I lie under the coffee table to catch some zzzs. I will stay there all night after a couple hours squiggle chasing I need my kip. The only thing that will get me up is if a windfarm or helicopter blades etc appear on TV and I go mad. I hate them. Strange but true. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. I like to snuggle up next to Mom, but Abby usually has the crazies - she'll do serious roaching, with legs flying everywhere, and then she'll pick up a stuffed ball (or grow at ones hiding under the bed until Mom or Dad retrieves it for her) and throw it at Mom for a while. When Mom gets sick of that game (and she gets sick of it long before Abby does), Mom will get us bully sticks, and then we do an evening inspection of the property, and then I snuggle up next to Mom again while Abby prefers to stretch out full-length on top of Mom. Never a dull moment at our house!

  5. My daddy and I have a similar routine to Dave's and your mom. We do ours in the bedroom where daddy likes to lay and watch tv. I snuggle up against him all night until he turns out the light to go to bed.

  10. We just go sit on our mommy and daddy and make sure they go numb from not moving! Zim, why does your mom keep messing up your comfy bed?

  13. Hi there, WE do pretty much the same thing-Hunter does his Bichon blitz and then snuggles down to nap on the couch with us. BTW, I must say again how much I love your quilts! I know we'd be best buddies if we lived close to each other.
    Have a great evening.

  14. I love your evening. I get an evening walk (even those the MOM has Phenomena). You gotta love her dedication. Then normally I get a snack and dinner. Followed by a tummy rub and laser light chase. Then I settle in next to MOM as she does some work.
    Blessings,
    Goose

  17. mol! Dave, you and Zim put on a great show :D it really cracks us up that you lay on the quilt next to the cushion and Zim will lay on the cushion :D

    We do a before-dinner playtime and show and then take it easy afterwards with some pre-bedtime naps :)

  18. That looks like an exciting time! My evenings are pretty equally divided between snuggling with Momma and performing stuffingectomies.

  20. I do a little of both, I like to run around for a little bit and then find a snuggy spot to get a tummy rub. Its all about the tummy rubs for me.
