Riding Shotgun

Hello, everyone, it's me, Cammie!  As most of you know, Zim goes for car rides with Mom all the time.  I'm OK with that, because I get to stay home with my Dave and spend time with him!  The other day, however, Mom asked Zim if he'd like to go somewhere and he was so  deep into his nap   focused on his work guarding the house that he didn't come when Mom invited him -- so I decided I'd go!

I know when Zim goes with Mom, they see birdies like one of Mom's favorites, the Killdeer:


Or they look way up high and see a Bluebird:


They've even seen Eastern Kingbirds:


But when Mom and I went out, she got all excited because she saw a Western Kingbird:


Mom went on and on about the "cute pose" the birdie was doing for her. Hmm. Really? Well, check this out:


See? Same pose. And I sat still longer than the Western Kingbird!

Anyway, it was OK going for a ride, and I really do like this whole "riding shotgun" thing, but next time, I think I'll stay home and have some special time with Davy.

"Oh.  Oh, yeah.  Right there, DaveDave!"

We find all kinds of fun stuff to do together!



  1. I love doing fun stuff also!

  2. Hi there, I was just thinking I should take Hunter out more when I run errands-just don't want him to get to hot in the car. We have Killdeer here and Robins, Sparrows and Finches-wish we had more Bluebirds though.
    Thanks for sharing today!

  3. Lovely bird pix Camo and yes you pose beautifully. Have a great nap with Dave. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. I LOVE riding in the car! I bet you made a grreat navigator.

  5. Cam-a-Roo I always ride shotgun. That's my spot. Yep even when other peeps are in the Blazer with us, where am I? Shotgun, that's right, it is my job (like Zim) to guide MOM safely. But I think if I could spend the day at home with you I think I would give up my seat.

  6. Camo, that's our dream day - checking out birdies then hanging out with Dave! You are one lucky girl!

  7. That bluebird is not very blue!

    We all have our strengths Cammie and should definitely play to them.

  8. mol! Camo! that Kingbird's got nothing on you! We have them in our neighborhood too. We like their call cause it sounds like they are laughing :D
