Who We Are

Tuesday, December 03, 2013


Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim!  Mom and I went on one of our special "just the two of us" outings yesterday, and you'll never guess who we saw at the Kansas Ocean!

"Wowzers!  And ha roo, friends!"

That's right - it was a small flock of Canada Geese! How exciting - they don't often hang out at the KSO! I lured them over closer and Mom got a bunch of pix of everygoose. Here's a group shot:


Check out the guy on the right of this shot:


That might be where the term "silly goose" comes from. The goose behind him has the look on his face that Cammie gets when Maggie's doing something she shouldn't be doing. Ha roo roo roo!

A couple of the gooses were getting some good wing stretches in - like this:


... and this:


These two guys were having a diving competition:

Dive!  Dive!!  Dive!!!

I wonder who won?

"I did."
"No, you didn't."

I suggested it was a draw; I'm sure they valued my input.

Mom and I watched my new friends for a while, then decided we'd best get back home to Dad and the girls.  I sure hope they'll be coming to the KSO more often!  I just loved seeing them!

"Thanks for hanging out with me!  Hope to see you gooses again soon!"

Play bows,


  1. We have a lot of those geese where we live, they are not allowed to be hunted here but in the state beside us you can. They know they are safe here in Keosauqua.

  2. We very rarely see geese here in Arizona - only if they are lost! You are a lucky pup!

  3. Pawsome Zim and we loved the diving competition. Hope you get to go with mum again real soon. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Hi Zim! And the Other ARMY!!! It has obviously been waaaaayyyyy too long since we came back on "blog" air, but you were the first ones we wanted to say hi to. We love what you saw at the KSO and those pix are just awesome! Your Mom is a wonderful photographer! We particularly like the diving contest pic heh heh! We also want to see who won!
    We send lotsa hugs and xxoxoxoxo to you all

  5. Duck TV is awesome. Bet you felt special going alone with mom. We hear that is good to do when you have more than one furry one

  6. we bet they were fun to watch for a while....

  7. I definitely think it was a draw.

    Also, what do you mean "when Maggie is doing something wrong"? She never does anything wrong. I know because I'm one of her mentors, and I would never lead her astray. :)

  8. Dear Zim,
    So sorry you are the only one of the Original Ao4 - condolences to you and your family. But it sounds like there are two lil somebodys to keep you on your toes, which is always a great thing! Big huggers xoxoxo

  12. Wow you are so lucky to have such a cool place to visit. We have some very nice lakes all around us and we see lots of swans and ducks but I don't know about geese. I will try to get some pictures.

  13. What a great walk Zimmie!! We just love the pictures your Mama takes of all the pretty birdies!
