Hey Everyone - Today (3/8/09) we celebrated Zeus' 11th Birthday and tomorrow (3/9/09) we celebrate his 11th month ampuversary!! Needless to say, I'm a proud mommy for how well my sweet boy has done. He continues to amaze me with his thrill for chewing on the stick, going for a walk in the fresh air and his joy for just hanging out with loved ones. He continues to remind me to live for the simple things and to cherish each moment in each and every day. He comforts me when I'm sad, shares in all my happiness and shows me how to be courageous in all things in life. He is, and will always be my greatest teacher and my beloved and faithful unwavering and unconditional love that only a dog knows how to give.

We hope to share many more birthdays and ampuversaries with our tripawd family.


Much love to everyone ~

Heather and Zeus

Zeus is an incredible teacher. That's one of the best things Jerry taught us too.

Congratulations on these important milestones. Thnaks for sharing!
