Serene Surprise Sunday

Woo, everypup and everycat!  It's me, Dave.  Zim and I got the most BEAUTIFUL surprise in the mail this week, and we thought we'd share it with you today!  It made ALL of us feel so loved and beautiful and ... serene!

I was  catching a few Z's  on Guard Duty in the bedroom after our after-lunch walk, when Mom brought the mail in.  She said, "Hey, boys!  There's something for you!  It's from your buddy Goose!"  Wow!  It wasn't one of our birthdays or anything!  It was really exciting!

I read the card, then just wanted to hug it for a while.

Me and Goose.  Well... Goose's card.
And the white fluff behind me by the window is Zimmie.

He sent us a really groovy-looking card with his picture on it!  Isn't it special?!?  We just love it.  And he said really beautiful things in his note.  Tucked inside were some See Beautiful tags just for me and Zim!!!  Check them out!

Aren't they beautiful?!!?

I was afraid Mom would do something like this.
I think she took the "on you" part way too literally!

Zim and I haven't decided who will wear which tag yet, but we will wear them proudly and think such wonderful, beautiful thoughts about Goose and friendship!

These pix are for Goose's MOM, since I know she likes my feety-feet:

And yes, before anyone says anything, I have a pink camo quilt on my bed!  It was my sister Ammy's and I like it very much.

Did you see the white floof behind me in that top picture?  That was Zim, laying in a sun puddle by the window.  Mom took Goose's card over to him; he posed for one picture ...

Zim's feety-feet.  Also for Goose's MOM!
Oh.  And Zim said to say that no, his snow shoes do NOT need trimmed,
but thanks those who might have asked.  Ha woo.

... then wanted to take it somewhere special to really enjoy it!  What better place than ...

Zim and Goose on the sitzbank!

"Hey, Goose, you sure look good up here!"

Whispering:  "Goose?  Any idea what 'GetDownZimmie' means?"

I think they both look good up there!  Dare I even say they look "beautiful"?  Ha woo!

Goose's kindness touched us in a way he couldn't have imagined.  Given what he and his MOM do for a living, though, we can only believe that God knew and guided them.  Goose, my brother, and Pastor Michelle -- we all thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  You are beautiful!!!

Have a beautiful, serene Sunday, everyone!



  1. Aww, that was so sweet of Goose's mom! And Cinderella says you guys look very handsome lying in the sun.

  2. Pawsome gift and how kind of lovely Goose and his peeps. A little kindness makes for big smiles. We think the tags are great. High 5 to you all. Have a super Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. That is so so nice!

    As for the "Getdownzimmie..." I hear things like that sometime too. I think it means, "Let's go for a walk"


  4. Oh I am so so excited that you got the tags. It's just a small token of appreciation for how you make me and my MOM feel. And oh how you made my MOM's day with those special pics just for her. Thank you boys and your mom too for always helping us see and feel beautiful.

  5. That was lovely of Goose and his mum. Zimmie, you totally own that sitzbank. Just like I would if I was there.

  6. THAT is REALLY Special. Goose has a BEAUTIFUL HEART... and he sent Beautiful Hearst fur you to WEAR and let EVERYBUDDY SEE!!!

    Esp. to read Goose's Cool Comment.

    BEAUTY is as BEAUTY Does!

  7. Wowser, you guys are going to look beautiful in your new tags!! Goose and his MOM are indeed special peeps. We love em and you guys too!!

  8. That is a very beautiful gift from your friend Goose! We loved the photos of you with them too! Zim, sometimes moms just say things to hear themselves talk and clearly 'GetDownZimmie' is one of those things.
