Who We Are

Monday, July 15, 2013


Ha roo, pups and cool cats.  It's me, Zim.  Wow, did I have a great time over the weekend!  There I was, kicking back for an afternoon snooz  gearing up for an afternoon shift on Guard Duty, when Mom asked, "Who wants to go to the park?"  Seriously.  She asked.  Cam offered to stay and take over my Guard Duty shift, freeing me up to go exploring!  Is she a nice little sister, or what?  I jumped at the chance to go; you never know who you might meet walking through the park - right?

I had a good look around when we got there:

"Ha roo?!?"

I didn't see anyone, but my nose was on fire!  Oh, not literally - I could tell we had some special visitors in our park and I tracked them down!  Let's cut to the chase - Dave's not the only one who got up close and personal with a pig lately.  Check it out:

"Wowzas!  It's PIGGIES!"

There were brown piggies and black piggies and black & white piggies and pink piggies!  Not like Dave's friend Pink Pig - like this:

You never know who you're going to see walking around CiCo Park!

How cool is that?!?

I think that piggie might have been my favorite. Mom's too. And she liked us, as well. Check her out:


Isn't she beautiful?  Check out those eyelashes!  And I think she was smiling at me!  Anyway ...

A few of the piggies took nice, cool showers:


I'll bet that felt good; it was a toasty day. They had big fans for them, too. Nice that they took extra measures to keep the piggies cool. Oh. Yeah, and the bipeds, too.

I had to take a look around in this one out-building -


I always used to check in there for pigeons with my sister Ammy. I need to fill Cam-a-roo in on that tradition!

I saw these little Daschies coming my way:


I wanted to meet them, but had to settle for meeting their mom. Good enough!

Apparently, piggies don't get to ride shotgun in a cool sports car when they go for a ride, like I do. They ride in these:


Those look pretty cool, too.  Some of them were even air-conditioned.  Nice!

The bipeds drove those piggie-mobiles over closer to the buildings, set up ramps, then led the piggies in.

"Oh, to roll around in there for a while!"

Mom and I stood back a bit, to give the piggies and their peeps plenty of maneuver room, then watched them get loaded in.  (I was on-lead, of course, but the piggies weren't.  Apparently, there aren't leash laws for piggies here in the Little Apple.  Besides, we didn't want to tempt any pig!)

Here are a couple piggies getting into one of the air-conditioned piggie-mobiles:


That lady in the pink top was having a good time!  Her piggie wasn't listening to her very well and the guy in the orange helped her out.  Mom wondered if it was a Siberian piggie.  I have no idea what she meant by that!

Here come a bunch more, ready to head home:


You can see some of the cooling fans they used there.

Here are a couple collages of the piggies getting ready to get in their piggie-mobiles and head home. The guy and his pig in the first one were totally cool.

"Oink.  What's shakin'?  Oink."

Seriously. The piggie was strutting. Talk about confidence!

This collage is my favorite:


I think that guy in the striped polo shirt is mighty lucky to have that girl smile at him like that!

Anyway, it was an awesome way to spend a little bit of the afternoon!  I hope you all enjoyed coming with me!

  6. That was super fun! I wonder when the JOCO fair is and if I can go!


  7. I can see why your nose was on fire Zim...all those piggies...oh my! You had a great adventure for sure

  8. I see why you titled your post WOWZA, because that's what I said when I saw your pawesome friends! That's so cool that you got to see some real piggies!

  9. I have never seen a real piggy up close. Wow that was pretty amazing stuff. They seemed pretty friendly, did you get a chance to chat with them?? What a cool day.

    Loveys Sasha

  10. That's pretty cool that the piggies came to CiCo Park to see you Zim! They sure come in a lot of colors! It's too bad the piggie-mobiles don't have windows lower so the piggies can stick their heads out the window and say "whee whee whee" all the way home!

  11. Siberian Piggie. Hehehe.

    That was truly awesome. I wish there was audio. I understand piggies can be very chatty. They have a fantastic ride. Maybe you and Dave and Cammie could get one of those big houses on wheels like the piggies have. Ride in style!


  12. between the sea monsters and now the piggies, you have some pawsome parks in your neighborhood, Zim! we think the pink piggy was smiling :)

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  13. What a super fun time you had with the piggies. Good thing you were able to volunteer to take your mom on that walk.

    Millie & Walter

  14. BACON!!!! Oh sorry, I lost my head for a moment. Now I have heard of pigs in a blanket, but pigs in a park> Zim brother what a great place you live in. I hope someday soon you can take Cam-a-Roo with you and teach her all about piggie manners so she can enjoy the beautiful creatures they are.... and tasty too. Oooo sorry again.

  15. We think that the pink who smiled at you is soooo pretty, Zim!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly
