One Year Later, Part 2 #CancerBites #LiveLoveLaughBark

It was just over a year ago my heart was ripped out for the second time in six short weeks as we said goodbye to the happiest dog in the world... my Zeus... my Moose... my Happy Old Man.

Live Love Laugh Bark - Just as Zeus Did. I miss him every single day. #CancerBites #LapdogCreations ©LapdogCreations

My sweet, loving, big boy... I miss and love you so very much.

It seems like I just wrote Lola's "One Year Later" post and here I am again, reflecting on the emptiness I've felt over the past year.

I miss your big smile, and your happy tail that wagged so hard it sounded like someone was playing the drums.

You always loved the great outdoors, and no one gets as excited as you did to see the hot air balloons go by. I wonder if Penny will notice them this summer?

Your brother and sister miss you dearly, and I know you would have been smitten with Penny.

It hasn't been easy, but we're lucky to have so many happy memories.  You loved us unconditionally for 14 years, and I can't thank you enough for that.

 This is what happens once we put the flannel sheets on the bed... Zeus unmakes it and climbs in! #dogs #bigdog #happydog #fall

I hope you and Lola are both happily romping over the Bridge...I miss you both more than words can say.

LicketyStik review

As I dig through old photos for this post, my eyes are filled with tears.  Tears of sadness and emptiness, but also tears of joy.  Your love of life and will to live was unmatched and I hope that everyone thinks of you today with a big smile on their face... just as you lived your life.

Live - Love - Laugh - Bark
just as Zeus always did

We've been thinking about our friend Zeus all morning. We miss him too and know too well that emptiness that he once filled.

ITs certainly very hard. Zeus was an amazing dog so much like Norbert. Im so glad he had 14 wonderful years, its maybe the longest life span Ive heard of in a dog his size

I miss Zeus, too. Thinking of you and hoping Penny is helping to fill some of that emptiness in your heart.

It is so hard to loose a friend.

These never fail to make me cry! They leave such a hole in our lives when they go. I still have the feels for my first cat, Misty. She was 18 when she passed, and I'd had her since I was 8. I still cry about it.

What a heart-warming photo essay and how amazing that you documented so much of your pets lives so you have all of these memories. Hugs.

Zeus was a sweet boy. Cancer really does bite!

The Island Cats said...

What a nice tribute to such a handsome dog. We send you lots of purrs as you remember Zeus today.

Diane Holland said...

I could feel your pain in your post. I am sending you hugs and prayers as you remember your Zeus today. He was a beautiful and special dog. I, too, lost a piece of my heart to cancer a few years ago. Cancer really does stink not only for humans but also our furbabies. Their memories will remain in our hearts and thoughts always!

Sending hugs, Zeus is watching over you, smiling and barking woof xxxx
Treasure the memories as they are what keeps us going

What a wonderful tribute to Zeus, gone but never forgotten!

Cathy Armato said...

What a beautiful dog Zeus was. I can't imagine how hard it must have been to lose two amazing pets within months of each other. What a tough year you had. I'm glad Penny is bringing back some of the joy into your life. These photos are glorious! Lovely tribute to Zeus.

The Daily Pip said...

So many beautiful photos. His personality and love of life really shine through. What a sweet and lovely boy. Thanks for sharing him with us.

Kia said...

What lovely photos! Much love xoxo
It's always hard to lose a pet. I remember losing my first pet when I was younger. I cried my little heart out and still have awesome memories of him now.

Daily Dog Tag said...

Thank you for sharing Zeus with us. These photos and your words give us an idea of how well loved he was. I know that you feel lucky for having had Zeus in your life, and I'm sure he felt the same about you.

Zeus looks like he lived a long and happy life ❤️ He was well loved

Sweet Purrfections said...

Thank you for sharing your memories of Zeus. I'm approaching the 5 year anniversary of my previous Persian, Sweet Praline, going to the bridge. I try to remember her with special thoughts and am so thankful I had a blog with her for three years and posted everyday, so I have those photographs and memories to reflect upon. She will always be missed.

Robin Mudge said...

Zeus seems like he was such a wonderful guy! The photos are very beautiful. I'm so sorry for your loss. Cancer really does suck. I lost a dog to cancer when I was 11 years old and I still think of her all the time. She was my best friend. They always take a piece of our hearts with them when they go. *hugs*
