"The Zoomies"

Do you know the "The Zoomies" are?

You don't?  Ah, never owned a big dog, I see.  Little dogs do not have "the zoomies."

The Urban Dictionary defines the zoomies as:  "When your dog runs around ... like crazy jumping on the couch, running up and down the stairs, and all over the house. It usually ends with them falling to the floor, panting like crazy and taking a nap."
To be honest, Sitka is too lazy to get the zoomies.  The fastest she ever goes is if she's outside and I call her in for dinner.  Then she moves as fast as her pudgy body will carry her!
Juneau on the other hand, for all his size, is prone to the zoomies, but ONLY when the temperatures drop below 50 F.  When the temperature drops to the 40s (which is generally in November), Juneau turns into a different dog.  Even Sitka--though she doesn't move fast--shows her joy when the temperatures drop.

And when it (rarely) snows?  I've never seen them so happy! 


  1. Zoomies are the best! My Five love them and have them quite frequently! They are a joy to watch...and most times we have to step back and out of their way! Beautiful photos!

  2. Yep, with Juneau, if you don't get out of his way, he'll just knock you over! Love your blog, btw. I had a epi-dog before I had these three. It was alarming and a big challenge. Thanks for getting the info out there!
