Playing in the snow is his favorite, but also loves bike rides, car rides, swimming, arguing with mom, making the geese fly and the bunnies run! AND SNOW!!!

having his teeth brushed, being brushed, when bologna isn't on sale, potatoes, bath day, the smoke alarm, having his feet touched, and trimming his nails.

Favorite Toy:
SNOW, SNOW and SNOW! He also loves playing tug, playing with Aggie, and cuddling with Bogie.

Favorite Food:
Ice cream, bologna, cheese, peanut butter, wild turkey (he caught his own)

Favorite Walk:
Our favorite walks are at Allegany State Park, the Allegany River Trail, and a six mile trail in the woods by our house.

Best Tricks:
Give me kiss (mom's favorite!), give me paw, other paw, two paw, give me hug, playing hide and seek, diving face first into a foot of snow and pulling out a mouse, pouncing at Aggie to make her run, jump (over fences), speak to me!

Arrival Story:
Zeus was given to me as a birthday present by my husband. He is the best present I have ever gotten. We had been to see him when he was a few weeks old, but I had no idea he was going to be coming home with us in a couple of months. He is such a clown and makes me laugh and smile everyday. He is always ready and willing to go. He gives the best kisses and has the most beautiful howl. He always has a pretty song to sing to me when we are getting ready to go for a walk, ride, or go swimming. Zeus and I share a very special bond. "He is the one who owns my soul".

Zeus would have been fifteen years old on November 11, 2013. In early February this year we took Zeus and Nikki to Allegany State Park for a walk in a winter wonderland. It's their favorite place to go. We even got dad to go. It was a great and special day. I have a photo book with wonderful pics I took that day. Zeus and Nikki so excited to go and had so much fun running through all the snow. I'm so glad we went because as it turns out, it would be the last time we would ever go. A couple of weeks later Zeus starting limping on his front left leg. It seemed to be a shoulder injury, but I just thought he might have sprained it from slipping on some ice in the driveway. After many medications, x-rays and tests at our vet, with little improvement, we had no definitive diagnosis and were referred to Veterinary Specialists in Rochester. They had the means to perform a CT scan which showed "a ruptured disc, chronic IVD disease, and multiple soft tissue nodules in the lung parenchyma consistent with metastatic disease". So my boy had cancer and was dying. We were shocked. We still are. The vet couldn't tell where the primary source of the tumor was and we would have to put Zeus through more testing for that. I couldn't put him through more painful procedures being over 14 years old. The answers would not have done anything to prolong his life. We decided to put him on comfort care and take him home. We stopped for ice cream on the way home. When life had gotten too painful for him to navigate, we thought it best to put him to sleep and that happened on April 23, 2013. It was an agonizing decision and horrible day. My life will never be the same without him. We went everywhere together. He was my best friend. No body has loved me as intensely as Zeus did. I miss him so much. We shared a wonderful life together and I am so grateful for that. I can see him running with our pack in my dreams. Run, fatboy, run!!!

Forums Motto:
run, fatboy,run!

Somehow it's been three years now since we said goodbye. The mourning doves are back. Every time I hear them, I think of you. When I listen to them sing, I think it's you singing through them to me. I know you came back as one to send me a sign that you were there to help Nikki to the bridge. Aggie slept in yours and Nikki's crate the last few weeks before she left. I think she must have felt closer to you there. I can't find the words to tell you how much I miss you and love you. You were the light in my life. I miss hugging you so much Zeus, and the way you would reach behind and kiss me in my ear. It was so sweet. I miss your welcome home. I miss how you would tell me "let's go!". I miss your sweet voice singing to me, I could feel it in my soul. I will never forget how your eyes shined so bright with love and laughter. Your eyes were truly the window to your soul. I have fostered kittens again, but it is not the same without you. How you loved the kittens. I miss so much about you. I hate life without you. I miss you and love you, my sweet boy.

The lake is frozen over
The trees are white with snow
And all around reminders of you
Are everywhere I go

It's late and morning's in no hurry
But sleep won't set me free
I lie awake and try to recall
How your body felt beside me
When the silence gets too hard to handle
And the night too long

This is how I see you
In the snow on Christmas morning
Love and happiness surround you
***You sing your song up to the sky
I keep this moment by and by
Oh how I miss you now, my love
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas, my love

Sense of joy fills the air
And I daydream and I stare
Up at the tree and I see
Your star up there

This is how I see you
In the snow on Christmas morning
Love and happiness surround you
*** You sing your song up to the sky
I keep this moment by and by

Dear Zeus

Well, somehow it's been two years since we said goodbye. Two winters without snow angels or seeing you run and play in the snow. Two years without bike rides and ice cream. Two years without your kisses and hugs. Two years without looking into those beautiful, beautiful brown eyes and seeing you laugh or smile at me with them. Two years without hearing your beautiful voice talking and singing to me. And howling. It was music to my ears. You had the most perfect howl. Two years without you and Nikki greeting me when I come home. I miss everything about you, but I think I miss your kisses the most. Nobody kissed me the way that you did. Two years. I miss you, I love you.
