Zeus OS had his eighth birthday this week. In dog to human years, we are now the same age. Suddenly, I feel an even greater kinship connection with him, as if the one we share wasn’t strong enough already.
He lives a charmed life and has made it through adversity without complaint. Two years ago, after failed ACL surgery, he was diagnosed with canine osteosarcoma and sent home to live another 4 – 6 months. Last year, we took him back to the vet and asked, “Now What?” Now what is that he will always have a lame right rear leg.
The three words that describe Zeus’s demeanor are friendly, faithful & obedient to a near fault.
Happy birthday little buddy, may there be many more.
