(sorry – meant to publish this days ago, but I kept procrastinating uploading the video I made, so I didn’t publish this. So here is the end (hopefully) of Zeus’ salmon odyssey, sans video, which I will upload and add later.)
Zeus has come home. What a pleasure it is to write those words, and indeed, my entire day has been a happy one since our Zeus came home. Still little more than a walking sack of bones, he surprised us by stealing a dog treat out of Ryan’s hand when he was offering it to Caesar, our pug. We didn’t think he would even want it, which is why we didn’t offer it to Zeus initially. Plus we wanted to make him something bland to start, as the Vet had advised us. Well, we certainly got the rice on the burner immediately after he stole the treat, and when I offered him the bowl of rice, chicken broth, a sprinkling of olive oil and a dusting of nutritional yeast, he was hesitant, but he didn’t walk away from it, either. Then, to my elation, he ate about a cup of it, but I think even that little bit of food overwhelmed his system. He has been crashed out ever since.
I want to say a little bit more about Douglas County Low Cost Veterinary Clinic. They saved my dog’s life. Flat-out, they took great care of us and him and I feel so much gratitude towards them. I will actually be writing a blog, and then an article about them. Great folks, they so obviously and plainly love animals. Thank you, thank you, thank you Julia and staff.
