The adventures of happy boy Zeus!

big, happy & handsome!

The Best Day Ever

So we got some crappy news – my cancer has spread everywhere and I have lots of tumors. Mommy is giving me palladia to try and shrink them and we go back Wednesday to see if it’s working. They say we don’t have much time, but I’m still feeling pretty good. Mommy is taking me to do lots of fun things! She says we have to live it up- that’s how you really beat cancer.

Mommy’s friend heard about my health and said that he wanted to give us a special gift- a day all about me with mommy and he would take professional photos! It was something he wanted to do for his beloved dog Shogun who passed away a couple weeks ago. So on Saturday we went to where mommy and daddy got married (they hadn’t adopted me yet so mommy thought it would be special to photograph me in some of their wedding photo spots) and we had so much fun! Mommy’s friend brought me a superhero cape and I was spoiled everywhere! All the people stopped to pet me and say how cute I was, the stores let me come inside and I got to try ice cream and go to the park! Oh and mommy got me special treats from Sweet Paws Dog Bakery who is now selling her jewelry! She uses the proceeds for my medical care.

What was so cool is that we could feel Shogun with us the whole day- everything went perfectly it was magical! Mommy says that Shogun is my special angel friend; he was known for making all the other dogs in his pack feel safe and comfortable- who are all rescues and fosters. I used to hate going out, because I was scared of the world, but now I love it! Mommy is even taking me on a cruise this weekend!! And the doggy beach!! I’m so excited!!!!

Oh, I almost forgot! The other night mommy said I should try a snickerdoodle cookie because I’m her snickerdoodle and Β I LOVE ❀️ snickerdoodles!!!!





  1. What great photos, and what a great idea. And, if you didn’t know about the cancer you would never guess. Zeus looks so happy!

  2. Okay, I don’t even know what to say!!! I am sooooo mesmerizedby THE BEST PJPTOS EVVVVVER!!!!

    And I’m in awe of your ability to BE MORE DOG!! I KNOW this was not the news you wanted to hear. But your love for Zeus is soooo strong that you are able ro keep yourself in tne moment and not let that piece of s**t disease rob you of your time together!!! And NO ONE knows how much time any of us have in our earth clothes! We’ve seen over and over and over where Vets gave a “guess” expiration date a d gos far surpassed it!! Zeus, as well as every dog here, has NO expiration stamped on their butt!!!

    And as Zeus has already shown, he doesn’t give a crap about any days in a calendar, but he sure does care about every moment with you!:-) πŸ™‚ And the bliss of being Zeus is that each moment is an eternal moment of happiness!! πŸ™‚

    These pictures are some of the most special treasures of LOVE AND HAPPINESS that have ever been chronicled!! πŸ™‚ THIS is Zeus’s reality! This is all that matters to Zeus!!

    Hats off to Shogun’s Dad for capturing the true essence of who Zeus is and the UNBREAKABLE bond you and Zeus have!! And Zeus has a terrific Guardian watching over him and the fact that you felt his presence verifies that! πŸ™‚

    I keep scrolling backmup tomlook at each photo over and over. And every time I see a different little nuance that makes me smile, or giggle, or warms my heart πŸ™‚
    That look he gave with the glasses on……ADORABLE!!

    Thank you soooo much, so very much, for sharing these sacred treasures! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ We are so privileged!!

    Keep on keeping on sweet Zeus! We look forward to more great updates AND pictures!! πŸ™‚

    Sending lots of love and pawsitive healing energy!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

  4. WOW what a beautiful and special collection of photos. They really are the best photos ever!!! Zeus is quite the character! That really comes across in those pics! I”m so envious you will always have such a wonderful reminder of him. Wish I could have done something similar while Kylie was still feeling well.
