The Other Dog
There's been a lot of coverage of the adorable puppies and of Venus, their mother. It's possible that no one knows that I have another dog who is at least as lovable and adorable. His name is Zeus and he's a poodle/shih tzu cross. Zeus has been around for a long time- we estimate he's close to 15 years old. We bought him for $30 from the family that I used to babysit for when I lived in Mannville. He doesn't have the same spring anymore so I fear that he might die soon. He's lost a lot of teeth too and his black fur is turning grey. I guess what can you expect? He still knows how to cuddle and while he may not be able to jump onto the bed on his own anymore, it is worth it to give him a boost. When we move into our apartment I will definitely miss having dogs around.
