To our great sadness we have had to put our sweet dog Zeus to sleep on February 2nd 2013.
We collected Zeus in October 2006 at Zaventem. Never before have we had such a very sweet dog.
When Zeus arrived he was timid. From the beginning we have spend a lot of time with him, let him get used to everything and slowly he became a devoted dog. Our family became very busy because after one year our eldest son was born and 2 years later the twins. Zeus was fine with everything, he remained calm and developed into a real family member. He came along on every walk, we gave him a cookie when the children got something and he loved the leftover breastfeeding milk! Zeus was clearly happy with his new life!
Unfortunately we could never let him run free because of his enormous hunting instinct but we solved the problem by getting a long line and a weekly run with the boss.
Unfortunately Zeus became ill during the summer of 2012. After many examinations and visits to the clinic the most likely diagnosis was a tumor of the liver. With the help of medication Zeus had another good 4 months. From December onwards the process was taking over and his health deteriorated. Euthanasia was the only possibility to spare him further suffering.
We miss him terribly!
Such a darling animal, almost human!!
Goodbye, sweet snout……..
