Rachel B. and her husband got Zeus as a puppy a few months before they married nearly six years ago.
“For the first four years of his life, he was our only “kid” and got spoiled to no end” writes Rachel. “He’s very intelligent and knows a lot of tricks. My personal favorite is “sit pretty,” where he sits on his haunches as if he were a person.”
“Zeus is most definitely a “momma’s boy” but he also loves his daddy like no other. He often play fights with my husband and usually wins. His favorite toy is named “Sugar Bear”, a big red bear-shaped toy that squeaks. He loves that thing and will specifically bring us that toy when we ask “Where’s Sugar Bear?”
“My husband Eddie is in the Army Reserve, and in 2010 — after he got back from his second deployment in Iraq — we decided it was time to get Zeus a companion. On the day Eddie got back home, we went to pick up Hera, who’s now two years old. She was the CUTEST puppy.”
“Right off the bat, Zeus and Hera played together very well. They like to play fight, and we joke that we don’t need a television because the two of them are entertainment enough. Zeus acts as sort of police dog, making sure Hera doesn’t do things she’s not supposed to. For example, if we scold her for jumping up on us at the table, he’ll bark at her until she stops. We all know who’s really in charge, though: Hera’s queen of the house. She has grown into a beautiful young lady and is just as much a part of our family as Zeus.”
“They both have their own beds and sleep next to each other at the foot of our bed. We try to bring them with us wherever we go: baseball games, apple picking, the river, the dog bakery, etc. They are truly spoiled puppies.”
“To sum it up, Zeus and Hera rule Mount Olympus (aka our abode), while Eddie and I do their bidding. This involves assembling peanut butter Kongs, giving belly rubs, and playing endless games of frisbee/ball. Luckily, they have been gracious enough to allow us to live. For that, we are thankful.”
