Zeus Whispers 


Literate for a Day

Someone or something you can’t communicate with through writing (a baby, a pet, an object) can understand every single word you write today, for one day only. What do you tell them?

This has already been done, albeit several years ago.  Zeus was slowly recovering from failed ACL surgery. Even his recovery was complex. One night, he managed to crawled under the bed to escape from the pain. When we got up the next morning, he was seemingly no where to be found. Back to the vet for further diagnosis. The final diagnosis was miserable, osteosarcoma (bone cancer) with only several months to live. 
Zeus came into our lives at the right time. I wrote Zeus a letter to let him know all that he meant to us. He remains a loyal, obedient & gentle soul. All this & more are true too the day. 

One year later, we took Zeus back the vet. His prognosis was rediagnosed and an alternative treatment plan pescibed, followed & he is now still sitting at my feet. 

Without words, with actions of kindness, we know that this world is good for all of us.
