Losing a Pet-Saying goodbye to my best friend

Hey Guys! I have been away from the blog for a while due the passing of my beloved dog Zeus. It has been really hard for me to concentrate on anything besides him. Zeus spent 7 years of  his life with me as my best friend, companion, roommate,  family,  therapist and so much more. He was my baby and my heart is broken that he is no longer with me. Here is a tribute I did for him that I would like to share with all of you. I hope you always cherish your loved ones and never take their presence and love for granted.

Tribute to Zeus by Slidely Slideshow

Zeus was diagnosed with Addison disease when he was 5 years old. I managed to keep him alive for 2 years, after which he started having joint issues which affected his mobility. He weighed over 100lbs when he died and though he had troubles running and walking sometimes, he always tried his best to get up and greet me every day I came home. Zeus and I had a special bond beyond anything I have ever experienced. He always knew when I was sad. Even though he couldn’t jump on my bed anymore, he would come and lay his head on top or sit by my bed to let me know he was there. He was a gentle giant that people gravitated towards during our walks. I cannot remember a single time when Zeus didn’t get a compliment while he was out. Kids would rush to pet him. He was a spectacular creature that can be mirrored by none.


Here is Zeus at 3 years old. At this time, he weighed 130lbs and was about 5.1″ tall when he stood up.

Though he was a huge boy, he honestly thought he weighed about 10lbs and was a lap dog. He loved sitting on my lab. I knew better than to sit on the  floor when Zeus was around because he would rush over and lay his big heavy butt on me:-)


Zeus and Zoey were together since they were 2 weeks old. Here they are 2 months before Zeus died.

He was in love with Mila and its been hard for her to understand what happened to him. However, I am glad she was able to meet him and understand the love of an animal at such a young age. I am also happy that she and I still have Zoey who continues to give us our daily dose of kisses.


Zeus eventually died from anemic shock. I had no idea he had anemia. By the time I found out it was just too late to save him. Having Zeus in my life and having him pass has made me realize that the only thing is life that matters and should always matter are the relationships we have with our loved ones. In the end, those are the memories that will live on.

Thank you for reading and following the blog. Like I said before, cherish your loved ones and never take their presence and love for granted.
