Charlie Bear here and guess what?
I’m four on Wednesday and some would say out of puppyhood. Think so? Some mornings I zoom around the coffee table, up onto the sofa, back down to the floor, into the kitchen, back to the family room, under the coffee table, back up on the sofa, and then start all over again.
Is that the actions of a four-year-old? Uhhhhh…yup!
I’ve never been a big proponent (big word there) of age and how it relates to how we are. Rex, the big dog we lost in 2010, was rambunctious all the way up to like seven Mom says. They thought he would never settle down. But heck, why settle down, anyway. This is Rex (on the right) with his friend, Buddy, at the beach.
Shouldn’t we always have a zest for life? Shouldn’t we live like there is no tomorrow? Okay…if you’re a human you have to dress in clothes, drive a car, walk into your office, sit at your desk, do your hum-drum work, drive home, put p.j.’s on to relax, eat dinner, watch tv and then go to bed.
Uh…where’s the fun in that? How about zooming around the family room once in a while? Oh, too old for that, huh? Okay, maybe a night out for dinner, a dance or two at a local club once in a while, a party at a friend’s house…those more up your alley?
Mom Peep says she and Dad are getting up there. They’re certainly not 4 like me (28 in people years). But I still say you should have some fun.
So now they swim at a local pool as often as they can where recorded music of the 50s and 60s is piped in. She LOVES those oldies and almost breaks out singing. Oh, that would be bad (I’ve heard her sing). They play golf, and ride their bikes and do other things too, like rent segways on a vacation.
Me, I’m still zooming while I can. I guess it’s important not to let a number (like 4) get you down. It’s just a number. We never know how many of them we all have so I think we should make the most of every day. Do you think so?
What do you do that keeps the zoom in your life?

Happy Happy Birthday, Charlie Bear!! Love your post today. What a great reminder to keep some zoom in my life. Sometimes I forget to zoom around the den–get too busy with busy work. But tonight, I’ll be thinking about you–Clyde and I’ll go zooming down the driveway together! xo
Yes!~ A driveway zoom!
Thanks for the Happy Birthday wishes!
Wiggles and Woofs,
Happy birthday Charlie Bear! We’ve been zooming in our boat lately. Our new dog Flash keeps us zooming, too. He’s a fast one:)
Well, now, that name “Flash” is made to zoom! Have fun!
Wiggles and Woofies,
Happy birthday Charlie!
Could you bottle some of your energy and send it to me! My coworkers do “zoomies” around me……..giving me little space to move!
I wish I could bottle the zoomies. Probably somebody did and called it 5-hour energy or monster drinks. But me…I don’t go for that stuff. Too artificial. Just give me a Mom Peep to do the run-around with and I’m in heaven. Wish I could send you some so you could zoom around those coworkers!
Wiggles to you,
Me, I am 6 1/2 around Thanksgiving, say reckon they will give me one of those big Turkey Legs or something else for my BD? I still get the zoomies also and swing around just as you do almost the same route; told you we were kin, didn’t I? I do not do them every day and don’t think you do either, do you? but my favorite spot is on the back of the couch where I can see out the windows & doors. Take care of yourself and especially your ‘Peep Mom’ if not for them no telling where we would be now, would it? Oh I feel a zommie coming on, so get outta my way!!
Woofs & Wiggles
I’m outta your way….out of my own way most of the time too. ha ha Nope, don’t do the zoomies every single day. Like just tonight I went outside and zoomed a bit. But I get winded fast. Big dog Rex was an almost non-stop zoomie at the beach, but me…I like to zoom at home.
And I’m with you, oh kin of mine…I love the back of the couch. My favorite spot!
We love up our Peeps, right, Beaugie! Keep up the Wiggles and Woofs,
Happy Birthday Charlie Bear from Aunties Sara and Ryoko, Uncle David, Rowdy and Tanner. You are such a grown up these days!
Auntie Sara, Ryo, Uncle David, Rowdy and Tanner,
Hello there! I miss you guys, but am having SO MUCH FUN here in my new home. Mom Peep laughs at me and even joins in when I do my zoom-zooms. Secretly, I think I’m teaching her how to bring out her inner child….lol.
We see that you are helping so many dogs, Auntie Sara. Kudos and good job! Thanks for raising me to the big boy I am today!
Wiggles and woofs,
Happy Birthday, Charlie Bear!
THANK YOU! I woof you!
My 6 year old Schnauzer, Romeo, still has his zoomies every morning! He poops me out!
You’re like me! Sometimes I grab my green turtle and take him for a twirl or my little caramel-colored pony comes along for the ride. Let’s keep on doing the zoomies! Yes!
Wiggles and woofs,
