2! 4! 6! 8!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim!  So there I was the other day, taking Mom outside, when Dad pulled up in the SUV.  He opened the back hatch up and started unloading something; I sauntered over to see what was going on.

"Whatcha got there, Dad?"

His vehicle was packed to the gills with insulation!  Interesting!

"Good insulation can cut back on energy costs -
and help the house be warmer in Winter and cooler in Summer!"

It looked to me like Dad had quite the project on his hands.  I thought I should help.

"Yep.  R-13.  Good choice, Dad!  OK, then.  My work here's done."

I wouldn't want to overdo.  I did cheer him on, though, with a poem I wrote just for the occasion.  It went like this:  
2!  4!  6!  8!  Dad is gonna insulate!
2!  4!  6!  8!  Who do we appreciate?
Dad!  Dad!  Dad!  
 Ha roooo!
It was pretty special.  Remember - I'm a member of the Working Breed group.  I'm trained for this kind of thing.

Play bows,


  1. hee hee! Zim, we bet your dad loved the encouragement :) with your help, he'll have the job done in no time!

  2. Funny thing is our hu-dad says we help best on home improvement projects if we go outside in the backyard and play. Not sure how it works, but he says it speeds him up greatly.

  3. we laughed and laughed zim...good one!

  4. Zim, Your Dad is really lucky to have you to help him out with these chores. It takes the whole family cooperating to get it done.

  5. it is very much good to have a LOT of that insulations stuffs... we think ours is like 87 inches deep.
    NICE WORK...helping your dad that way.

  6. Zim,
    I'm glad you are trained and ready to help. So many DIY doggies try these projects with disastrous results. Just be sure to keep Miss Maggie busybody away from the construction.


  7. How could your Dad ever get anything done with out your help? BOL!

  8. Nice one Zim and epic poem. Where is dad insulating? You'll have to snoopaw-vise. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. good boy Zim - cheering on the dad!!

  10. I bet your dad did really good work after hearing that poem.

  11. Hi there, Now I wonder what your dad is going to insulate? With the cost of energy, any help we can get is well worth is. Maybe your mom could gather all your hair(that you lost)and use that too; I bet it would be really warm.
    Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

  12. Outstanding cheer and I am sure he was grateful for your input and finished the job with confidence.

    Love ya lots♥

  16. Oh boy. He must have been watching HGTV

  17. Wow, Zim, your dad is SO lucky to have a snoopervisor and cheerleader like you. I know he couldn't have done it without you.

  18. You are so helpful Zim! We are sure your Dad appreciates it! We got insulated this year too---we loved it in the summer but we hate it now in the winter...the house used to be nice and chilly all winter long. Now it's to darn warm---we are huskies after all!

    Your Friends, Kiki and Nala
