The Lapdogs had a nice, lazy weekend at home with their humans. Best of all, Zeus had a pretty good weekend and a very happy birthday! Of course I haven't had time to download any pictures off of my camera yet, but I do have some from my phone to share.
My boy got an apple oatmeal cake with peanut butter frosting from The Barkery. It smelled almost good enough for me to take a bite, but I didn't. Although I certainly could have. I love that The Barkery not only uses human grade ingredients, but they keep things simple too - pureed apples, unbleached, un-bromated white flour, oats, vanilla and water (plus the peanut butter icing and peanut butter dog bones).
It's safe to say the cake was Zeus-approved. He absolutely loved it! We usually just put the cake down and say "don't touch" (I know, awful parents, right?!?!) in order to take some pictures before we cut it up to share... but not when you turn 14!
I let Zeus have at his cake for a few minutes before we took it away to cut up and serve (of course he shared with Sophie & Tut, and we even had leftovers for later). This video just makes me smile from ear-to-ear...
Please keep the good vibes flowing for my boy. Just over a week ago we thought we only had a couple hours left with him, but he's a trooper and once again showing that amazing will to live. He actually seems to be acting a little better, but we know that is in part due to the anti nausea meds he needs daily. I'm not sure how long Zeus can keep this fight up, but we are cherishing every moment!
