Beautiful, beautiful photos!  How special Zeus must be.  Keep those months ticking by, I need to hear the long term survivor stories.  The more I hear, the more optimistic I become.  Here's hoping Zeus has a long and happy life.

OMG Rene!!! I didn't catch that email you sent me for some reason showing me this…it's beautiful!!! Thank you and Jim SO much for putting it together. And thank you everyone for all your nice thoughts. We are now 9 1/2 months post amp. and still going strong. Cuddy and soft he is…I snuggle with him ALL THE TIME!

I had to include some pictures of Buddy too – I think he feels a little left out with all the tripawd stuff I do 😉

It makes my heart sing knowing that Zeus provides inspawration to other tripawd families…he is certainly my hero.

All our love,

Heather and Zeus and Buddy too.
