1/17/06: Zeus has finally settled into our household. What a great dog! He is full of sunshine and happiness everyday. Zeus is an active playful 3 year old that loves tennis balls and anything that squeaks. He is a retriever as well. He will bring his balls to you (sometimes 3 or 4 in his mouth at once) and drop them at your feet to throw. He immediately zooms off after it and returns it to you. Will wonders never cease. He lives to have you throw his toys. If you are busy and he can't convince you to throw it he will do it himself. He picks up his stuffed animals and tosses them into the air, lays on his back and chews them and begs for anyone to play tug-o-war with him. He is very playful with our older dog and sometimes can convince her to roll and tumble around the house. He is a speedy guy who burrows through the snow and rolls around in it for the sheer joy of the feeling. He's a hard guy to watch and not start grinning at the fun he is having.

He is UTD on all of his shots and is micro chipped and neutered. He was a stray but clearly has been someone's pet because he is a perfect gentleman. He knows his basic commands and will come when he is called, even when not on a leash. Although if a squirrel is sighted, I'm not too sure he could contain himself. He takes great joy in harassing them in the backyard. He is totally housetrained and has free roam of the house both when I am home and gone. He is an avid eater and loves everything, but doesn't guard his food or toys. He willingly lets me take his bones out of his mouth and just patiently waits for me to give it back. He is a very loving and gentle dog. Might be a bit underweight right now as he is long and tall, but a little thin. He has the narrow muzzle, not the blocky square face. He also has the most beautiful big brown eyes that soulfully beg you to pet him or play with him. If he is not playing with his toys his favorite place is with his head in your lap. Also wherever you goes, he goes. Loves to ride in the car without a problem, but if he is left home it is his furry little face that is right there when you open the door. He is a medium golden color with a lighter white undercoat. Such a soft and full coat with the beginnings of a developing flag on his legs. I don't believe the pictures do him justice as he is as beautiful on the outside as he is on the inside. A very easy going love of a dog, Zeus would fit well into any household. He makes you smile just to see what a happy dog he is.
