How things are going according to Zippy

Hi folks!  Zippy here!  Hope you all had a great July 4th holiday.  

I am not sure why but we had these bright things in the sky that made very loud noise.  

Mom said that they were fireworks.  

I guess that they were kind of pretty.  

It is getting better around here thank goodness.  My mom dug up her garlic and was happy at how it looked.  I do not care much for garlic.  

I do love flowers though.  

Oh no!!!!   Is that Bumble???  She has been so much trouble this past week.  Getting into everything!  I guess she knows that she can get away with it.  Being cute and all.  Well.....Let me tell you...what you are about to see will stun you.  Bumble being....well..... not so cute.  

Ha.....Zippy I am cute no matter what you say!  

You are just jealous.  

Right Bumble!  Look at your face in this picture.  Down right ferocious.  I mean.....just look at that mouth.   It looks like a trash can.  I am skeered.  

Look at how you treat me!  Bossing me around and not letting me get back up.  

Ha ha....At least I am faster than you are!  I can run away from you......Ha ha ha..

After all of that...Bumble then coaxed me into mom's garden and got me in trouble.  Little did anyone know...but Bumble was under that cherry tree too.  

Not my fault.

Then she did this!  Now who in their right mind would fall asleep with a stick in their eye??????  

What was she thinking???

Good question.  I guess that I was just sleepy.  

Yes has been a tough job watching Bumble.  I am so glad that my mom and dad are feeling better.  

As a matter of fact my parents were feeling well enough to go see a band play.  

I thought they were going to see the Beatles, but realized that was not right.

My mom had just taken a picture of a beetle.  

They actually went to go see Jonathan Birchfield play.  He is very very talented.  

That is him with the guitar.  

I thought this picture was funny.  My mom said that is what her brain felt like with shingles.  Ha ha ha. 

Glad she is over that!!! 

Hello Mr. Pumpkin!  Mr. Magic Pumpkin.  He has been around here a long time.  He was carved last year!  Pretty neat if you ask me.  He is a knucklehead.  A Knucklehead pumpkin that is.  

Speaking of knunckleheads.....

Hello Ollie the wild mini mule!  Ha, not so wild now!  

You look rather sophisticated with that nice halter and a hair cut.  Even more so than that donkey.  

Hey..... dog.  You do not know what you are talking about.  

By the way.......It's a girl!  Our new giant pumpkin!!!!!

Well, this is all that I have to report.  It was a fast and furious fourth!  Get it....Bumble.....furious.....ha ha ha......
Oh and I almost forgot.  We were just informed that I am going to be in the 2011 Pet Prints Bull Terrier calendar.    Oh...... and Bumble will be in the Bulldog one and Gus in the Labrador one.  The Bull Terrier one is the best though.  If you have a chance, check them out.  

Over and Out.
Your pal, 


  1. Well, hooray - it sounds as though you guys are doing MUCH better! I'm so glad.

    LOVE all the pictures - especially the one of your brain while you had shingles. Made me laugh.

    Bumble and Zippy are hysterical.

  2. Zippy looks very chic in the shades! I can see that bumble would be a handful. Too bad Grace can't come to help keep her in line.

    Glad to hear you are better. I need to dig up my garlic but it has been too hot. Maybe tomorrow.....

  3. Very nice post Zippy! It's a good thing you don't like garlic... it's bad for dogs.

    And you're right... Bulls rule!

  4. Zippy, Glad to hear that you ALL will be competing for the "next top model award". Congratulations on making it into the 2011 calendars!!!!

  5. Oh my word Zippy. Momma said something about almost doing pee pee in her pants. Hysterical!!!! We love the pictures
    Benny & Lily

  6. You have the most photogenic critters at your place! And they write well too. Gary dug up our garlic a couple of weeks ago and it's the best crop ever...all that horse manure. Yours looks excellent.

  7. Zippy, thanks for keeping us informed! (You look really cool in the shades...will you be wearing them for the calender centerfold?) Glad to hear you all had a lovely 4th and are feeling better! Cheer up Bumble and try to control yourself!

  8. Hi Zippy & Bumble! We gave you an awardie! Please visit our new blog to see what it is!
