It’s hard to believe that two years ago today we lost our beloved Zeus, one of the best Rottie boys ever, to bone cancer.
We fought hard for a year before that. In honor of Zeus, I’m sharing a story that I originally shared in the North East Rottweiler Rescue email groups.
A lot of people found it entertaining back then, and I hope you do, too.
Zeus and Rock, a love story
Zeus met Rock last week. He got him out of the stream with his own paws and with some difficulty. It was love at first sight. This isn’t his first Rock, but they seemed to have a special attachment. I know he was hoping this would be a long term relationship.
They played and played for days. Zeus knows to keep Rock away from his teeth.
Rock is the only playmate who doesn’t get upset when Zeus opens his mouth as wide as he can and barks at him.
While Zeus’ sisters can’t handle his rough play, Rock could take all Zeus could dish out.
Sadly, their relationship came to an abrupt end this morning when Zeus rolled Rock 10 feet to the edge of the pond and Rock fell in and sunk to the bottom. Zeus looked for him for quite awhile, and again this afternoon. We’re trying to take his mind off it.
He’ll probably find a rebound Rock tomorrow.
I miss you with all my heart, Boo.
