Thankful Thursday: Zeus Update

To say I'm thankful for everyone's support and well wishes over the past two weeks is an understatement.  We have received so many supportive messages and well-wishes from far and wide - friends, family and even complete strangers!  It truly amazes me how word spreads through the blog world and the fact that so many people take time from their busy lives to step up and offer support.  And, as I mentioned, many of whom were complete strangers - although I hope we'll become blogging buds  We've met so many wonderful friends over the years through blogging, and although we've yet to meet the majority of them in person, those who hear us speak of them would never know that - you'd think they were life-long friends we grew up with!  

The Power of the Paw is something very special, as is the power of bloggers who band together to help others during difficult times.  Thank you to everyone who has done so for us during the past two weeks!  Your messages mean the world to us. 

We'd also like to publicly thank the awesome folks over at Chewy.com for the Get Well message and absolutely beautiful flowers they sent for Zeus!  To say we were blown away by this surprise is an understatement.  To know that our friends at Chewy are so thoughtful is heartwarming.

The flowers really brightened my day last week!  And knowing how much my big guy loves to stop and smell the roses (literally!), I know they helped him as well.  The shot below is from last Friday, right after they arrived and before the blooms opened.  You can really see the difference in his own demeanor between it and the shot above, which was taken on Monday.

Wow, thank you @chewy family!! We were just surprised with these beautiful #flowers and Get Well message for Zeus! #love #thankful #roses #PeruvianLilies #dogstagram #Chewy is amazing!

Seriously, Mr. Chewy, you really know how to brighten a girl - and her dog's - day.  The flowers were simply gorgeous (I'm still gushing over that lavender rose in the center).  One of the pink roses broke upon arrival, so what else does one do, but grab a good 'ole shot glass (from Biltmore Estates no less)...

Our Get Well flowers from the awesome @chewy peeps are looking gorgeous!! #thankful #love #flowers #Chewy #peruvianlilies #roses #feelingloved

This #rose was broken when Zeus' get well #flowers arrived from @chewy ... Makes a #BiltmoreEstates shot glass look amazing! #love #thankful #Chewy #feelingloved

Thank you Chewy friends... just to know you were thinking of Zeus really means the world to us!  The flowers were a much needed brightener to a very difficult time.

Great news! I love how he wrapped himself around the flowers in a pic. Poor Zeus! Vertigo is horrible. My Mom feels better if she takes a small dosage of an anxiety pill. I wonder if there would be something comparable for dogs. Get better Zeus! Purrs
