What Zeus Would Want

My Sweet Zeus

My Sweet Zeus

Before humans die, they write their last will and testament,  give their home and all they have,  to those they leave behind.  If, with my paws,  I could do the same,  this is what I would ask…

To the poor and lonely stray, I would give:

–         My happy home

–         My bowl and cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys

–         The lap, which I love so much

–         The hand that stroked my fur, and the sweet voice which spoke my name

I’d will to the sad, scared sheltered dog, the place I had in my human’s loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds. So when I die, please do not say, “I will never have a pet again, for the loss and pain is more than I can stand.” Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose life has held no joy or hope and give MY place to HIM. This is the only thing I can give to him…. The love I left behind.
