You are worthy of being Loved.

No, this isn't some fancy trick of the camera or Photoshop, my little camera got some condensation on the lens during our hike through the woods then into the sun. 
Zig was trying his best to balance on this log with the girls, and was hilarious in doing so. Someone actually wrote on the log "You are worthy of being Loved" and I thought it was very appropriate since over half the gang living with me is a rescue :)

Here, kitty, kitty...

Dear Stray Cats-
 I don't know how to say this, but I think I love you. You give me a sense of joy and a thrill everytime I leave the front door. Food Lady thinks it's annoying to be knocked off the steps when I go after you, and yes, she's trying to teach me manners in this area... but, I confess...I think about you all the time and whenever I look out the front window I pray that you'll be there. Please don't leave. I'm sure Food Lady won't mind if you have your illegitimate babies in her landscaping for me to point and bark at when they get older...

Love, ZigZag

Zig is a very adventurous fellow-

But, sometimes, I don't think he realizes he's on an adventure until he finds himself smack-dab in the middle of an "Oh shit! How'd I get here?" moment.

But, like any good adventure-er, he takes everything in stride...

and in point...

and always, always finds his way to a snack, ear rub, and happy ending.

Dear Zig.

Thanks for picking and bringing me the most ripe melon in the garden. Next time though, do you think you could just notify me first, before picking it yourself?
Food Lady.

Partyman Zig.

Zig was so well behaved at the dinner party we went to last night! He remembered his manners and got some good romp time in with his Lab pal, Quinn. There were several people there, along with 3 Weimaraners, 1 Clumber, 3 Welsh, 2 Labrador, and one old Coyote.

Zig's downtime.

or something that resembles downtime.

"Can we play now?"

kitchen help...

Zig loves a good breakfast.

a runnin' fool

I wasn't kidding when I said that Zig lives to run.

Or when I said that he can run 3 acres as fast as a sighthound chases rabbits.


Zig has a preoccupation with racing cars. It's really no wonder that he was found chasing them in the middle of a busy intersection. I'm starting to wonder if he wasn't raised in someone's backyard, and this was his only form of entertainment and outlet for energy he had.

Yes, he truly believes he can beat the train.

And yes, moments before I took this photo, the engineer was pointing at him and laughing.

Oh, Zig...

a swimmin' fool

 Sometimes, if I can't find Zig when we're in a certain field running around, I automatically look to the pond. Most likely, he's there, in the middle of it, just swimming around and minding his own business. You don't even have to throw a stick or bumper for him-  he'll chase the geese, dragonflies, or any kind of bug hovering around. Seriously.

Zig's new BFF

Meet Quinn- Zig's new buddy. Quinn is a handsome 2 yr old Labradorable who quickly became Zigs swim and romp buddy yesterday on our romp through the field.

bird in tree...

If let alone, Zig would spend HOURS running around this tree just because a trash bird flew into it... 

and the point is...

Nice one buddy!

I think I smell something...

Zoning in on something good!

If I had the money, I would get Zig's JH on him. This boy loves to hunt birds! Now that he's using his nose and not just sight pointing everything, he's on a roll!  Zig is currently learning that busting birds isn't the way to go- though sometimes he juuuuuust can't help it...
