The adventures of happy boy Zeus!

big, happy & handsome!

Busy Guy

It’s been awhile! Things have been so busy for our family. My brother needed surgery, but the good news was that the bump removed was just injured tissue and not cancerous.

At my last checkup they found a stinky tumor in my lung and I’ve had some difficulties with my tummy from my piroxicam, but mommy is on top of it! She calls and emails the nurses and got me in to be seen and we think we’ve got it figured out so my tummy doesn’t hurt and we can still fight the stupid tumor.

Then on top of it all my amputation site tried to open and needed stitches and I had to wear shirts again! But now it’s healed and I can go back to my hydrotherapy!

I missed physical therapy so much- mommy even took me just to visit Jenn and get snacks to keep my spirits up.

Today at Petsmart people had lots of questions about me being a tripawd and they get all sad looking and sound like they pity me when they ask and mommy says I have cancer. Mommy wants them to know I don’t need pity I’m happy and nothing gets me down! We are not done fighting! I’m living life no matter how many months they think I have- I’ll decide when I’m ready to be an angel and not a day before!

      Thank you for your kind and encouraging words! It was hard for my mom and dad to process the news of a tumor in the first six months after surgery and being told that I won’t beat the odds, but then mommys friend told her that I’m not gone until I’m gone and that clicked for her and she said hey that’s right -we have a whole lot of adventures ahead of us and we aren’t going to waste one minute being sad about what might happen or when!

  2. PS….Just went back and saw that SPECTACULAR birthday cake and delightful pawty hat you wore to celebrate a very HAPPY FIFTH BIRTHDAY ZEUS!!! 🙂

  3. When Otis went to big box pet stores he played that whole three legged cancer dog to the hilt – lots and lots of free sample for the poor cancer dog who lost his leg. He was eating it up. Literally. Yum.

      Haha Zeus is more like I don’t know you please leave me and my mommy alone- I’m totally normal I don’t know why you’ve never seen a 3 legged dog hahaha. This I think was actually his first time in a pet store- he wanted to leave the whole time- the only pup I know not excited to be around toys and food smh

  4. Wooohoo Zeus! So hoppy your bro did not have a major issue! You have the BEST attitude–living life the the fullest no matter what the stats say 🙂 Keep on keepin’ on buddy!

  5. What a sweet post. So glad Zeus is doing well. He looks so happy!

    • He is! He has the best attitude of any dog or human I’ve ever met- just amazingly resilient and surprises me every week with something new that he does. Dogs teach us so much!

  6. Wow, between the rehab and the great ambassadoring at the pet store, you are a PAWESOME Tripawd Zeus. Way to represent! It’s hard work but you make it look easy. Keep it up handsome.
