Happy 7th Birthday Sweet Boy….

Today is Zeus’ Birthday, he would have been seven years old. I remember bringing him home when was only seven weeks old like it was only yesterday. Here are just a few of my favorite photos of him in remembrance. We shared a wonderful six and a half years, a time I will never forget! Happy Birthday my sweet boy!

You were the most adorable little puppy.

Zeus loves making new friends.... We hope you will join us so you can meet him!

What I wouldn’t give to see your sweet face again…

There will never be another you....

Happy Birthday my Boy! Although you were only in our lives for a short time, you gave us so much laughter, love and joy! You were the best dog a girl could ever ask for and there will never be another like you. You will forever hold a special place in my heart!


The Best Part About Owning A Dog…


The Best Part About Owning A Dog…

… is the way he will come over to see me,
for no reason, just to let me know I’m
important to him
… is the way he is always ready to lick the
jelly off my nose…

… is the way he looks into my eyes and finds
contentment in simply being near me
… is the way he will run all over the yard,
fetch a soggy tennis ball and bring it back
to me as if to say “look mom, it’s all have,
but it’s yours

… is the way he wakes me up in the morning by pushing
his cold wet nose in my ear and snuffing loudly
… is the way he shreds toilet paper all over the house,
because it’s fun even though he knows he shouldn’t
… is the way he’s sure he can catch the ducks in the
lake today…
… is the way he comes over to me when he is sad
… is the way he wedges himself near me when I am sad and
push all others away, to console me with his love
… is the way he pounces on crickets in the backyard
… is the way he looks perplexed when they escape
… is the way he is terrified of the evil pink hula hoop
… is the way he doesn’t mind how much of that horrid
perfume I’m wearing just because it was a gift from
my relative who’s visiting
… is the way he doesn’t care about bad hair day or
overdue bills
… is the way he loves you, even when you are impatient
with him and have no time this morning for a game
of tug-a-war
… is the way his coat feels like liquid silk under
my fingers
… is the way he finds wisdom beyond words


Words For Thought….

It came to me that every time I lose a dog

they take a piece of my heart with them,

and every new dog who comes into my life

gifts me with a peice of their heart.

If I live long enough, all the components of my heart

will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving

as they are….



You will live forever in our hearts and memories…..Today…Today we had to say our last goodbye

We shared our last touch; I told you I loved you so much

I’m sorry, but when you passed, I couldn’t help but to cry

Your life so short, I can’t help but to ask why

You have touched my heart in so many ways

You made me smile, you made me laugh

I will treasure all of those wonderful days

I helped you as much as I could, I did my very best

I hope you are in a better place

You fought so much, now it’s time for you to rest

In a place where you can be free

You can run and play now my sweet boy

I only hope you will remember me

I will miss your warm brown eyes, your head in my lap

I will miss everything about you,

Especially the way you made me laugh

I hope someday we will meet again

I can’t bring myself to think

That today really marks the end

No other will ever take your place

I couldn’t have asked for a better dog

I will always remember your sweet face

Know that I love you, today and always

I will never forget you

And all of your wonderful sweet ways

Today I am sad, but you are free

No more pain, no more bad days

In peace, is where I want you to be

Know I love you and know I miss you

Know I did everything I could to help you get better

But most of all please know I will never forget you,

I will love you forever and ever

R.I.P Zeus. October 12, 2012

   Today we are sorry to say that Zeus is no longer with us. He had ex-rays done today on his abdomen and the news was not good. He had fluid around his heart, fluid starting in his lungs, and enlarged lymph nodes. He has not been feeling well for the past two weeks and he had been sleeping a lot. I could see in his eyes these past few days that his fight was gone. I think he was ready to go. He was a wonderful, loving, kind, loyal dog and I couldn’t ask for more than he gave. He touched many people with his gentle ways and will be greatly missed. He will live forever in our hearts and memories.

  I will be closing out the Saving Zeus fundraiser this weekend, we have raised $2,708. I will be paying the remaining balance of $757 at Cahill vet in Flat Rock with it along with the cost of his last visit to healthy paws today. Also, I will be calling the person who paid the $800 for his tests to see if she will let me reimburse her because it is such a large amount. Anything that is left after that, will be donated to help another dog in need, I think it is what Zeus would want.
