Photo Finish Friday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim!  Did you see all that great snow in Dave's post yesterday?!?  Wowzers, what a way to cap off the week!  Of course, that means lots of extra work for me - and I got right to it!

Dave and I took Mom on a walk in the afternoon while Dad shoveled.

As we approached Ao4 Headquarters on the way home, I saw my biggest challenge - Dad had piled a huge amount of snow just to the north of our driveway.  Just piled it there.  Obviously, he needed me to make a really cool snow fort!

Am I right?  Why else would he pile the snow up like that?!?

"C'mon, Mom!  I need to get busy!"

I got right to work.

Can you tell how seriously I take my work?

This isn't a task to be taken lightly!  I put a lot of work into my really cool snow forts.  And a lot of heart and soul.  And my shoulder.

OK... just a few finishing touches!

Me in my really cool snow fort.  Checking for any sign of invaders.

This'll do for now.  I'm sure I'll need to reinforce it a bit today - we got a few more inches after Mom shot these pix, and Dad piled more snow onto my really cool snow fort.

A Siberian's work is never done!

Play bows,


  1. Very cool snow fort, Zim. We enjoyed reading about it from the comfort of our sofa ... our nice comfy sofa in our nice warm house.
