Zeus, Forever in Our Hearts #HeartDog

Today marks the second anniversary of saying goodbye to our Happy Old Man.

Zeus was truly one-of-a-kind. He was such a happy-go-lucky dog, and taught us all to live, love, and be happy.

Zeus' love of life and will to live were beyond anything I have ever witnessed before - canine or human. He loved nothing more than to please his humans, and we were so incredibly lucky to share 14 amazing years with him.

Not a day goes by that I don't miss my big boy. At 140 pounds, he was the original Lapdog... and boy did he love to cuddle!

So today, in honor of my boy, please give your furbabies some extra kisses and cuddle time.

Love and kisses, always and forever, we miss you big boy...

I saw on your FB page that this was the anniversary of Zeuz's loss. Love the pictures--and as you say, the memories never dim, but only grow more joyous.

I WILL give our Lyla extra love and kisses in honor of your GORGEOUS Zeus! I am so sorry for your loss - truly. We lost two dogs within a 6 month timeframe. It is so hard to say the least.

Will give Mr. N some extra attention tonight! Zeus looks very sweet.

We're sending lots of purrs your way today. Zeus was a handsome boy.

Mr Zeus, we're all having a special cookie for you today. We miss you, buddy.

Losing a heart dog is always so hard; we decided to only celebrate Jasmine's birthdays, though, not anniversaries of her passing.

I saw your remembrance pics of Zeus too. Looked like such a happy dog. I feel you. I lost my cat of 13.5 years to cancer 2 years ago. Miss her everyday. I wish I could hug and cuddle her again. :(

Zeus was such a beautiful dog. They really do leave footprints on your heart forever. You were blessed to have him in your life. I will hug & kiss my furbabies today, and appreciate another day with them. They're with us way too briefly. My childhood dog Ginny was my "heart dog", it's been 30 years and I still think of her with love in my heart, all the time. *Hugs*

Zeus sounds like he was a special boy indeed! A handsome one too! It's never easy when we lose a beloved fur baby, and they stay with us forever. Sending love and hugs to you!

I know it is so hard to lose a loved one, and I'm glad that you have so many happy memories of Zeus. He was a lucky dog to have known such love and devotion in his life.

What a handsome dog. I bet he turned heads everywhere :-)

A special boy indeed, and they leave the biggest hole in your heart.

In honor of Zeus, I will be showering tons of extra kisses on the crew! Sending lots of love your way as you remember your big lap dog!

Golden Daily Scoop said...

Giving the Goldens some extra loving tonight! I can't believe it's been 2 years, thinking of your guys!

It is never long enough, the time we have with our dogs. It is wonderful to keep the memories and love alive as you are here.

Sonja Lishchynski said...

I can't even think of how much this must hurt. Extra love all around tonight!

It's easy to see how much he loved life. I lost my Jessie a couple of years ago, too. Although I have the Poodle Pair now, I still miss Jess every day. As you said, Zeus is forever in your heart, and I am sure he still has the power to make you smile every time you think of him!

These type of anniversaries can be tough. It will be six years this month since I lost my heart kitty, Praline. I try to remember her with fondness and try to forget the sad moments.

Beautiful tribute to Zeus! He was such a handsome guy. I'm glad that his love has inspired you to create this blog and make the world a better place. You never truly stop mourning those you love, you just find bigger gaps between the tears. *hugs*

So sorry for your loss. That's a great way to honour and remember him and his love of life - I gave Kilo the Pug even more kisses and cuddles than usual. Zeus reminds me of my Cookie who we shared almost 14 wonderful years with.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know firsthand that labs are just the sweetest, dopiest, most loving dogs around. I lost my black lab, Sally Roberta, over a decade ago and I still miss her. She was happy about EVERYTHING and could always make me smile. I know your memories are warm and loving ones. And that will dull your sorrow over time.
