Arrival Story:
Zuki was found wandering around. Poor guy started humping us when we found him. It was love at first hump.

Zuki came into our lives when we found him alone on the side of the road. Everything inside me told me I had to help this dog. We approached him cautiously, as some stray dogs could be violent, but he was full of licks and appreciation for the attention we gave him. Zuki's early life was full of friends, fun, and adventures chasing squirrels and ducks. After awhile, he seemed a little lonely at home alone so we looked for a friend for him. He and Sienna were good buddies, loving to play tug-of-war with toys, swim side-by-side, chase little critters, and wrestle in the grass. The both fought for places on the queen-sized bed but each have an huge place in our hearts. The fated day that would change Zuki's life forever was when he was hit by a car. He amazingly survived the massive blow by a jeep after he was flung 30 feet in the air. He had to get surgery on his leg and began rehabilitation so he could use it again. He surprised his vet when he learned to walk again, however not as fast as before. Zuki's leg did not hold him back, but he soon developed a heart condition that slowed his activity greatly. However he responded to medication and was able to live a slow-paced life with us at home. He relished special home-baked vegan treats, belly rubs, and long cuddles. Some of Zuki's favorite things were eating, swimming, chasing tennis balls, and just being there. He loved to be right by our sides all the time. A loyal and trusted companion his was. Zuki's family is sad to see him go but his memories will live on.

Thanks everyone for the rosettes and notes on Zuki's birthday. It's been really hard today. I miss you a lot, Zuki. I am going through a really hard time lately and I used to think that whenever Zuki was around he just made everything ok, and when he's not here it's just not the same. Zuki, you were such a special pup and you still have a huge place in my heart that feels empty without you. We miss you so much. We are glad you are free of suffering and are resting in peace but your human family is still heartbroken over the loss. Some days are easier than others and this is just a tough one. Thinking of you, buddy.

Thanks everyone for reaching out. Sorry to not be on here much but with my health issues I have to do a lot of internet research for that and my energy is not what it used to be. Sienna and Ellie are doing great and send licks and wags to everyone.

xoxo Zuki's mom

Hi Zuki,

Today I went with your sister Sienna and the new pup Ellie to the vet. Everyone was healthy, just getting check-ups. The problem is they told us to go to room 4. I couldn't go in there because it's the last place you were alive. I remember you lying on the floor gently resting and falling asleep. I felt terrible leaving you there, even though I knew you were gone and it was just your earthly body that lay on the floor alone. I just couldn't face the room where your spirit departed.

I think of you a lot. A bit more lately. I am sad I will never be able to lie next to you or hug you or feed you a peanut butter cookie again. I know you don't need this anymore, but I miss the connection with you. You were a one of a kind dog and as special as they get.

missing you a lot today,
your mom


missing you a lot lately

Hi Zuki,

I miss you so much lately. It kinda started when I was at the dog park with Ellie and Sienna. There was a dog whose bark sounded a lot like yours. I lost it. I just kept thinking about how I won't hear your bark again.

Then last night I had a dream that I had to say goodbye to you again. It was so hard the first time, I can't bare to go through it again in my mind.

Today I am just thinking of you and your kitty sister lots and just wishing you were here. You'd be right by my side and look up at me sometimes. Or snore really loud and I'd love the sound of it.

I know you are free and happy now but I selfishly wish you were here.

love your mom
