Zeus


We got a dog!  We've never had a dog before so it is very different from our normal.  Since I don't have any dog experience, and am technically still afraid of most dogs, I wanted to get an older dog that was calm and behaved.  He has brown eyes but the red eye fix on the photo correcting software didn't work.  He is around three or four years old and has already been basically trained to sit and stay and walk calmly.  He had recently been neutered, so he is getting more energetic now than he was, but not in an obnoxious way. He had fleas and worms, but a trip to the vet has brought him some relief.  He had his last doses of several different medications today, but hopefully he won't need any more.

We are also getting more company now than before, as more people come to visit him.

In quilting news, I made a stitchery and have made the quilt top for Another Little Quilt Swap, just have to finish it, and send Kate a pic!

Zeus is such a noble name for a noble creature. He looks like a gentle love. Is he settling in okay?

Congratulations, you won't regret it. Dogs are loyal and a best friend. They help you have a good day even if you are having a bad one. Have fun.

Congratulations!!! He will keep you smiling and "growling" for years! I know! Think of him as your physical trainer on all the times when you "have to" take him for a walk. He will be keeping you healthy! I look forward to hearing all about your relationship!
