R.I.P Zeus

Today was Zeus’s last.  Eight years in Whistler since I rescued him from the pound we have hiked just about every trail in the Whistler Valley.  Addicted to sticks and balls and a sucker for attention, everyone who met him loved him, especially for his prancing gait.

He loved me without question and many’s the time he cheered me up on a bad day.  I will miss him with all my heart and as sad as I am to see him go I know that today was the right time.  It’s impossible to look at this collection of photos without a smile (and some tears too).

Goodbye Zeus. xxx

    Zeus, I am missing you so much. Your time came way too early, but I know you are better of now.
    I will always remember you.

    Hi Sarah. Very sad to hear about Zeus. The times I came to see you I fell in love with him and I am not a dog lover. I am sure he will leave a big hole in your life but you will always remember the good times you had with him. Lots of love Mum xxx

    So sorry for your loss Sarah. His passing is sad to all those of us who got to know him if even just a little.
    What a heartfelt photo tribute, such great moments you captured.
    According to Charlie RIP means Return If Possible, so…

    RIP Zeus

    Dear Sarah,
    We are honored to have had the opportunity to go for a hike with Zeus. Thank you for letting us share in his life – if only for a millisecond. We know he will always have a special place in your heart.
    He’s off to his next adventure.
