To many, Zoe is just an animal, a pet, "a dog". To her family, she is our daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly (bark-bark is just not clear to us two-leg humans) and can't hear (literally can't hear-she is hearing impaired, most likely from birth) or understand a word we convey (us two-leg humans are always speaking jabberish non-sense) but emanates love to whoever she touches.

Some people have dog, a kid, well we have a dog-who-is-our-kid!!!

When you bring a pet into your life, you begin a journey — a journey that will bring you more love and devotion than you have ever known. If you allow, the journey will teach you many things, about life, about yourself, and most of all, about love.

Zoe has taught her family UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. Her eyes smile with joy and love as her ears fall downwards to greet our mere presence. She does not see flawed humans who could be cross and stubborn, moody or rude, but only her wonderful companions. Or maybe she does see those things but only dismisses them as mere human foibles, not worth considering, and so chose to love us anyway ...

Zoe may NOT be OUR WHOLE LIFE but she definitely makes OUR LIFE WHOLE!!!

Everything changes, nothing remains without changes ... Fill your mind with compassion ... We are what we think. All that we are arises with out thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world ... The way is not in the sky, The way is in the heart ... We must be diligent today. To wait until tomorrow is too late. Death comes unexpectedly. How can we bargain with it? (Buddha)

With that note in mind ... one must live life to the fullest!!!

What we think, we become!!!

Value Life

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things, which renew humanity. The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows. (Buddha)

There are loved ones in our lives who can touch us in special ways, leaving footprints upon our hearts and echoes in our minds.

Do not wait until loved ones are missed, Do not wait until memories become treasures, Do not wait ...

Give a BIG hug to your loved ones today- 2 legs and 4 legs, Do not wait to tell them how much you LOVE them!!!

My checkoff list of being a good ONE YEAR OLD pup ...

I WILL NOT roll on wet, muddy, grass just because I like the way the grass tickles me fur ... CHECK
I WILL NOT lick leftovers on my potty pad; although it is tasty, it is not food ... CHECK
I WILL NOT use the composte machine as my personal cookie jar ... CHECK
I WILL NOT make the white leather sofa into my face towel ... CHECK
I WILL NOT stick my nose into someone's crotch as an acceptable way of greeting ... CHECK
I WILL NOT come in from outside and immediately drag my butt across Grandma's new rugs ... CHECK
I WILL NOT place my head in the refrigerator as a door stopper for Grandpa ... CHE CK
I WILL NOT suddenly stand straight up when lying under the coffee table with Uncle John's glass of red wine resting atop ... CHECK
I WILL NOT play tug-of-war with Uncle Kevin's underwear when he's on the toilet ... CHECK
I WILL NOT shake the bathwater out of my fur as Mommy is chasing me with a dry towel ... CHECK

Does CHECK mean accomplish or NOT accomplish??? Need to clarify ...

Visit 1 to the Vet @ 4 weeks: swallowing foreign object #3-Nylabone
Visit 2 to the Vet @ 6 weeks: pink eye/pink forehead- soap in my eye/banged my head on the car dashboard (thought we were in the convertible but we were in the SUV)
Visit 3 to the Vet @ 4 months: screen for my "lack" of hearing
Visit 4 to the Vet @ 5 months: surgery wounds not properly healing
Visit 5 to the Vet @ 6 months: the flu, 3 emesis episode
Visit 6 to the Vet @ 7 months: cleaning of my war wounds-attacked by a "meanie" dog
