Happy Birthday Mommy!

So mommy has been asking for an Angel sign. She kept waiting for our boat ride song to play on the radio and thinking I would visit on my brother Captain’s birthday like I did before, but nope… I decided to visit mommy on HER birthday. I have to make sure I always surprise her so she knows it’s really me. I can’t be predictable; otherwise mommy will think it’s just a coincidence. So I made sure to send mommy and grandma angel signs all week and on mommy’s birthday.

First, mommy happened to mention to grandma the name of our boat ride song and played it for her. Then grandma started looking up the artist and saw that he’d signed to Show Dog Universal Music. She asked mommy if she knew that and mommy said she’d never looked up the artist other than to download our song. Mommy got the spirit chills (she gets those when she is connecting with the spirit world to confirm it’s an actual message). Grandma got the spirit chills too.

Then mommy was at work and one of her students said they were sad the semester was ending and asked if they could visit mommy and she said sure at her office. Then they looked up, smiled and said, “I want to see Zeus.” Mommy was stunned she knew she must have talked about me to them, but couldn’t recall when and was just taken aback that of all the things they said, they mentioned me and just knew mommy had photos of me in her office. Yup, I’m so good at these Angel signs!

Then a couple days later I got grandma to mention this card she had that reminded her of me while unpacking from moving things to her new house. Grandma had asked grandpa if she should tell mommy about the card because it might make her sad and grandpa didn’t think she should, but she briefly mentioned it to mommy and mommy told her to send it… it was my birthday card to mommy!

The doggy on the front kind of looks like me and inside I told mommy how much I would love to see her face- she always said how much she loved my wrinkles and smooshy face. She would put her hands on my wrinkles and kiss me and say I had a “big ‘ol smooshy face.” I knew she would get the reference when grandma told her about it…

Then then next day just to make sure mommy knew the card & message was from me I had grandma find these 3 photos of me in her closet while she was cleaning and one of them was mommy kissing my “smooshy face” and was the exact photo shown at a pet memorial service mommy went to a couple weeks ago. Mommy sent in lots of my photos (including photos of her goddoggies and the shelter pups who have passed away) and the people picked one photo of each pup for the slideshow… of course you know the mommy kissing me photo was the one they chose to include in the service (it’s also the selfie mommy is most proud of and one of her fav photos of us).

One of mommy’s “smooshy face” photos- she just could never resist my wrinkles:

Then just in case mommy still wasn’t convinced I played another one of our songs while she drove home with my brother Jasper from walking in the rain on her birthday.

She had happy tears running down her face and had to pull over. I made her dream about that song the night I left and she didn’t know why I wanted her to listen to the song because the lyrics didn’t make sense, but then she got it – the title is “My Comeback Song” and the video shows a place that looks exactly like the beautiful place mommy took me for Super Zeus Day and my boat ride the last day we had together. This time when she watched it she even noticed he is by a graveyard in one shot and one of the lyrics is “…I wish I had my arms around you, but I’ll just dream of you instead…”

From the music video

Last photo mommy took of me by our boat- I knew she’d get why I wanted her to hear the song when she saw the video 😉

I love how my mommy loves me and I love her so much I could never let something silly like not having a body stand in the way! So sorry it took me so long mommy, I was making big plans to surprise you!


Your Smooshy Face – Zuzu xoxo

P.S. Mommy thought I was done… nope I played my comeback song again today and when she went online she saw a doggy got adopted by one of the rescues she is friends with and guess what her name was… snickerdoodle… in case you just started following my blog that was mommy’s special nickname for me that not many people know and she even let me eat them and I loved them! Just wanted to pop up again and say “Hi Mommy” from your little snickerdoodle.

My Brother Adopted a Stray Cat

Okay, so I promise I’m going to share my angel signs, but I have to tell you about what my brother Jasper has been up to! So mommy DOES NOT like cats (it’s a loooong story), but she noticed that my brother was watching this one stray cat from the porch and he would whine for her. This went on for months.

Mommy started to wonder if he liked cats. She took him to her friend’s house and introduced him to her dog friendly cats and he was SO HAPPY! He had a big smile and wagged his tail. They couldn’t believe it! He doesn’t like most dogs at all (of course I was an exception because I let him think he was the big boss so he liked me- well he did stinkyface me a couple times- but that’s okay he was mostly nice), but he loves cats!

We have a lot of stray cats in the neighborhood and sometimes horrible things happen like they get run over. Mommy started to see this cat more and more. She could tell her apart from the other strays because she had a short tail. So mommy, daddy,  and my best friend our neighbor started feeding her and she began to come around more. Then after several failed attempts at catching her mommy’s friend finally was able to pick her up and put her in a carrier.

Long story short- mommy named her Jasperella after Jasper and well actually she also calls her Meow Meow, Kitty Poo Poo, Princess Meow Meow and she is now spayed and vaccinated and lives in the basement. Jasper is SOOO proud of himself. Captain… well he’s another story he wants to eat her…  He was doing okay and was actually scared of her and then he decided she was food! So he stays upstairs. Mommy told him kitties are not lunch! Daddy always wanted a cat and mommy said NO WAY! But mommy loves Jasper so much she gave him his own cat and she even learned about litter boxes and cat stuff. Mommy tells Meow Meow she should be very nice to Jasper because he saved her and even lets her have his basement bed. She’s getting more comfortable and comes and sits with mommy and Jasper when they come down. I mean who else has a doggy brother that saves stray cats!? Me I do! ~ZuZu

Mommy got me an updated blog!!!!

Hi Everyone!

Mommy upgraded my blog today so now she can upload photos again! She has been keeping notes of all my angel signs to share with everyone. She is getting ready to take my forever glass pumpkin back to my memorial and bring my new holiday wreath!

Mommy always tells us we can’t go around looking scruffy like we don’t have a home so she likes to make sure my memorial looks the same way. Mommy was going to get my brothers forever glass pumpkins instead of the real ones and daddy said he didn’t think they would like forever glass pumpkins so mommy got our real ones and decorated them last night… but she’s still getting Jasper and Cap forever pumpkins too – mommy spoils us.

I’m Still Around!

Hi Everyone!

So much has been going on and mommy needs to update my blog to get more storage space since she LOVES posting tons of photos. She’s going to give you LOTS of updates about all that I have been up to from the Rainbow Bridge as soon as school is out for the summer… and guess what?! I helped mommy get an awesome new job as a professor (it’s her dream job)! Her and daddy spent so much money to help me and I wanted to make sure mommy, daddy and my brothers have everything they need. Mommy’s new job means she is off in the summers to be with my brothers and no more worries about finances!

So I thought I’d just let you know about my latest angel sign. Last night mommy was watching a vet show and the doggy on the show also had bone cancer and had to have his leg amputated and then it wasn’t long before he was at the Rainbow Bridge with me. Because of the show Mommy was really thinking about me more than usual (which is already almost every minute of the day) when she woke up today. She decided to sleep in a little and then headed to work.

Since she was missing me she played our special song from my boatride the night before I crossed over. While she was playing the song on her phone in the car today she thought to herself (or more like I made the thought pop into mommy’s head lol) what if she turned on the radio and our song was playing at that same moment (I’ve only made the song play twice since I crossed and I always do it when she has changed her schedule and wouldn’t normally be in the car listening to the radio so that she knows FOR SURE that it’s me (I’m a smart boy and I know my mommy).

So anyhow, mommy is thinking, “I wonder if I turn up the radio if me and Zuzu’s song is playing. Then I’d know he is with me because he’s only made it play twice.”

So mommy turns her phone down and turns up the radio… common you should know the rest by now if you’ve been reading my blog… OF COURSE I had the song playing at the EXACT SAME TIME, so as soon as mommy turned her phone down the radio picked up playing the song at the exact same spot. Mommy was in shock, she had to check that it was actually the radio playing and not her phone still. She burst into tears because it let her know that I was with her at the exact moment- as soon as she played the song on her phone, I made it play on the radio.

I was there in that car. Mommy forget’s sometimes that I can go EVERYWHERE now. I keep telling her that I’m ALWAYS with her. I hear her talk to me everyday and I know that more than anything she just wants to hug me and smoosh my big face and give me kisses so I had to come through SUPER powerful for mommy today so she wouldn’t have any doubt at all.

Ps. Don’t tell mommy, but by the time she updates my blog again… she will have another angel story- I’ll never stop finding ways to come through. Mommy’s friend told her that she was my guardian angel on earth and now I’m hers. That’s exactly right. Love you mommy! XOXO

Super Pup Project

Another update! Mommy and her friends decided to give other terminally ill and senior dogs Super Pup photo shoots! Shogun’s gift of Super Zeus Day is going to keep rolling on to others. Mommy started a Facebook page and Instagram account (superpupproject) so people can follow the project and also get involved by donating capes, sharing their own photos of their dogs in capes along with their stories, and spreading the word.

So far two other doggies have had Super Pup photo shoots. Sounder and Cody. Both are senior pups with the same type of cancer and are miracles! Mommy’s friend Sonya and her husband officially adopted Sounder and mommy says his spirit reminds her of mine. She took his water front photos and is his godmommy!

The other pup is Cody who’s dad became homeless and selflessly gave him to a rescue group so that he could get the treatment and love he needs. I bet his daddy misses him so much. Mommy’s friends are going to try and get in contact with him to share his photos so his dad can see he is happy.

Well that’s all for now!
