Storm Prep

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim.  As I mentioned yesterday, we had a ton more snow in the forecast and we got busy at Ao4 Headquarters making sure we were all set for an emergency!  Part of those important preparations, of course, is ensuring that we have enough Stinky Goodness Treats to last a while in case the power goes out.  I thought I'd share that process with you today.  Ready to get cooking?

Oh.  Before I get started, you might be interested to hear how much snow the storm blew in - am I right?  We got - are you ready for it?  Nothing.  That's right, nothing.  All the biped meteorologists said we were in the path of the storm, up to a foot of snow due in ... and we got nothing.  You might be wondering, "Hey, Zim.  Since you predicted the last snowfall, did anyone check with you?"  Great question, readers!  And the answer is, "No."  Did I display The Snow Look?  No.  I did not.  That should have been the first clue.  But hey, at least there's a fresh batch of Stinky Goodness Treats to enjoy!

The process went something like this:

"Did I hear you get the can opener out?"

Sure.  I'm 13 and am getting a bit hard of hearing, but I know when that can opener comes out!

Let's do a little Quality Control, shall we?

"Oh, this is a fine, fine can!"

I'd hate for us to go to all the trouble without checking the ingredients!

Next up, slice it up and fill the Stinky Goodness Machine!

"Looks good!"

It's important to oversee every step along the way!  

And to clean as you go!

"The cutting board's good to go, Mom!"

After a bit of clean up, it's time to put the Stinky Goodness Machine out on the screened-in part of the deck.  (I still don't understand why we can't do that in the house so we can enjoy the fragrance as it cooks!)

"It's all set!   Now to wait ..."

"It's going to take HOW long?!?!"

I forgot that it takes a few hours.  I thought Mom and I should do something fun to pass the time; I recommended zoomies!

"Chase me, Mom!"

All part of the process!

I hope those of you who did get this latest round of snow were prepared!  Enjoy it for all of us - and if you need any help building a really cool snow fort, give me a call!

Play bows,


  1. Noooo they got it wrong. Maybe that is a good thing for your peeps. We are loving your big stinky treats. I swear I can smell them over here. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Now WE know how much you boys LOVE a good snow and all, butt come on.. ADMIT IT... You are GLAD that you didn't really get the FOOT of snow predicted... on top of what you already have.
    I know that WE would be glad not to have it.
    That Stinky Goodness machine is a MARVEL fur SURE.

  3. PeeS... What is WRONG with the Weather Blabber Guys??? Don't they know that the K. Ocean NEEDS that snow right now?

  4. Come on over...the snow is melting away and it's Great for digging and building!

    The snow plow even came through so Dave can drive you.


  5. Hello Zim. You are soooooooo cool and your treats look like they will be yummmy. Hey.. did you know that your eyes are 2 different colors? Pawsome.

  6. We got all the snow zim...i can't wait till mom gets home and we can go out and zoom around in it...

  7. Hi there, We woke up to light snow this morning. We were happy when it stopped but now it has started again. I'm staying inside; Hunter is snoozing on hubby's lap. I need to get my dehydrated back and make Hunter jerky; I'm so concerned with any product on the market(but he loves chicken jerky).
    Stay inside and stay warm friends.
    Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

  8. I can't believe you didn't get any snow at ALL! That's not fair.

    Hey, I've been wondering, what exactly IS the Stinky Goodness Machine? I haven't been able to find one under that name. Do humans sometimes use it for something else?

  9. We don't have any snow Zimmie. We just have lots and lots of rain. And it's hot. It's not fun, really.

  10. We bet you spent the entire day next to the door making sure the stinky goodness treats were cooking away unharmed, Zim!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  11. All the crazy snow pictures we have been seeing, we thought for sure you were making the biggest fort ever. Well at least you got a fresh batch of Stinky Goodness Treats.

    The silvers and more

  12. No snow? That's too bad! We were hoping you would have to make lots more snow forts Zimmie! At least you got yummy snacks anyway!

  13. The weather peeps are predicting lots of snow here too. Right now it's just raining, but it's supposed to turn to snow soon. At least you got some new stinky goodness out of it.


  14. Stinky goodness sounds wonderful. I am sorry you didn't get any snow, but as long as you have stinky treats life is good.

    Loveys Sasha

  15. So why again does it have to cook outside? I don't understand. I would think part of the process and fun would be the smells that would fill the house. Sometimes I wonder if the humans noses even work. Well at least you are prepared now, for whatever comes, snow or shine.

  16. Looks like you are well prepared
