Goodbye Zeus

Hi Marc, 
It has taken awhile for me to write you but I wanted to let you know I had to put Zeus to sleep on May 16th. In march I noticed he was limping a little but didn't seem in much pain.  The vet knew right away that is was a very aggressive bone cancer.  There were not very many options so I chose to keep him comfortable and love on him.  It got to the point where he couldn't get up without a struggle I just knew it was time.   
He was such a loving dog and such a great addition to our family, he went everywhere with us. He had plenty of room to run around but always chose to be inside on my couch or on my sons bed.
He will be forever missed and never forgotten.
My heart is still broken but someday in the future I would love to adopt another loyal companion.
Thank you for giving "Zeuskit" to me I promise he was well taken care of.
Take care Carly

Zeus is a typical puppy. He is inquisitive, can get himself into trouble if left unsupervised for too long, does not know his size, and like to "test chew" stuff. He is crate trained, and mostly potty trained, but again, he will have troubles if you ask too much from him. He is very smart, though he likes to pretend he is a dumbo. He taught himself to stay and wait for the release command, at mealtimes. He just watched the other dogs and learned from them. He is a very affectionate, sweet dog who really wants to please.

We will post additional photos of Zeus as time goes by, so check back often.

"He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another man. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant. His head on my knee can heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me... whenever... wherever - in case I need him. And I expect I will - as I always have. He is just my dog." - Gene Hill
