Serene Scenery Sunday

Woo, everypup and everycat!  It's me, Dave, here with Serene Scenery Sunday.  Most of the pix this week are going to include a special little somepup because ... well ...

... yeah.  Doesn't get much more serene than that, does it?  Or adorable.  (Yes, that's Zim's bed, but we are all happy to let our pack-mates take turns with our beds.)

Our new little sister is fitting in just great.  It only takes her a couple times to see something before she has it all figured out!  When we go for our walks, for instance, everypup gets hooked up in the house, then we go into the garage, make sure we're all hooked up right, then we open the garage door.  It's one of those big safety issues.  Anyway, here's a shot of us at the start of a walk:

"Make sure she's hooked up right before Mom zaps the door open, Dave!"
"Yeah ... she's good to go, Zim!"

"Oooooh, what's that noisy thing up there?"

It's like with the garage door opener.  She showed no fear of it, but was curious!  Once Mom explained to her what it was, she was good to go.  She's real cool about stuff like that!

Anyway, Dad has walked the redheads to the Kansas Ocean a few times on their early morning road march - but yesterday afternoon, they got to go again with Mom!  Here are a few photos from that outing:

"Ahhh!  Feel that wonderful ocean breeze!"

Zim said Cammie was real good about not pulling toward his duck friends and didn't bark at them or anything, so he's hoping he can teach her how to make friends with other species.  Mom is of the opinion, based on the look on Camo's face, that while Zim would like to have the ducks over for dinner, Cam would like to have them for dinner.  That doesn't sound too serene, though, if you're a duck -- or Zim -- so let's move on!

Here are a few shots of the redheads on the way home:

"Thanks for not scaring my duck friends away, Cam!"

"How come every time I start pulling, Mom stops walking?"
"She's quirky like that, Camo.  Maybe she's tired or something."

"Hi, Mom!  Are you coming?"

Mom really likes the sky in those two pix!  Speaking of which, here's a sunset shot we took on one of our evening patrols this week:

And now ... here's something that made Mom's FaceBook friends all gushy the other day.  Can you guess who this is?

OK... let's pan out!

What can I say?  Holding paws with her makes me feel all kinds of serene!

I hope you enjoyed my post.  Remember there is serenity and beauty all around you!



  1. Wow Dave it is all settling down fabulously at your pad. Have to say unlike Zim we'd want the ducks for dinner too. I am drooling at the thought. Have a serene Sunday and take it easy.
