About Zeus at 1 Year Old,
Zeus eats everything! He loves an egg each morning for protein and absolutely LOVES his bananas. We say Banana Dog and he comes running :-) Zeus also loves fruits and vegetables although of course, he does not get these things very often. Most of the time he will just eat his Iams dog food, but again once in awhile he loves his treats and people food.
Zeus LOVES to run! So far we usually only run 2-3 miles, but sometimes we will go out for a longer run/walk of up to 6 miles and he does excellent. Just today we are starting a new morning workout routing and we will be running every morning at least a mile or two to have a nice jump start to our day. We usually try and go for runs or walks at least 3-4 times a week.
Zeus also loves to play and pick on his older sister Sophie. Sophie is a beagle and loves to howl at him when he does and pretend she doesn't like it, but at the same time her tail is wagging and she's loving the attending and play time. Zeus always loves to play with other dogs and always wants to go up and say hi to every dog and person he meets! He's a friendly, friendly puppy that sometimes it even scares a few people. We make sure they know right away that he's a lover and before you know it, Zeus is licking them showing his affection.
One of the things we love most about Zeus is he's a cuddler and a lover! He wants to cuddle in the early morning and late nights when he's tired. He always shows us how much he loves us when we get home as he runs to the top of the stairs outside to greet us each time we come home AND we get lots of kisses when we walk in the door.
I'm sure I could go on forever, but hopefully this helps in regards to updates. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thank you!
Zeus' Official Name! A cute Story a Dogo owner will believe and understand!
We have finally decided on a name for Zeus and after my story, I think you will love it!
I decided last week that I felt as if we as a family were not exercising enough. Zeus was always quite lazy in the mornings and very slow moving. He would always lay around all morning while we got ready and usually wouldn't budge much. I also felt as if I could use a pick me up to get the day started so, I decided to start a morning ritual and run each morning with Zeus before going to work. We started a week ago Tuesday and ran every morning around 6:30-6:45am. Zeus loves running each morning with Mommy, so much that ever since last week, each morning now, Zeus comes in around 6:30am (creeping towards 6:15am) and plops his big head next to mine on my pillow to wake me up to go running. He is so anxious and eager to go for a run each morning now that even on weekends, we can't quite get him to lay back down for another hour so we can sleep in, ha! Zeus always has been and now always will be a runner. So, we have officially named him: El Correrdor del Apollo Zeus (The Runner of Apollo Zeus).
Thank You so much Gabe and Shawnacy for keeping me updated on Zeus' life! I think he will be a perfect stud, I will definitely send anyone in Iowa and surrounding states your way! You've given him the perfect life, THANK YOU!
