Oh boy… Where do I start with this HUGE personality? Zeus is a big ham – when I don’t have a camera out, anyway. As soon as Zeus sees the camera he gets all shy, like an out-going kid who never takes a good picture…
He loves to be the center of attention when we have company and will do anything to get as many snacks and snuggles as he can. Oh, but not long snuggles… There are so many things to do and places to patrol.
First thing in the morning, he needs to do his patrol around our property when he goes outside… His rounds are almost always the same; pee on mom’s driver-side tire (to make sure no other dogs try getting chummy), proceed in a clockwise manner around the house and pee on the tree, then the other bush, then come back to the front step when finished.
OH! And barking at the cat is MANDITORY any time that slinky feline may be anywhere within earshot… Because cats are totally the worst.
Zeus is a happy-go-lucky, sometimes shenanigans-causing, wet-nosed teddy bear. Have you ever tried giving a haircut to an unwilling, wiggly little critter only to have them sheepishly act like they didn’t mean to make it take 3 times as long once they’re done..? Yeah, they know you can’t stay mad.
Favorite treat? FOOD! Any kind of food will go over quite well… Except maybe veggies, one wouldn’t want to be too healthy. Although, for as much as Zeus likes his treats, Lady is often smart enough to pull off stealing his treat and still getting her own if I don’t catch her scheme in time.
Funny Quirk? The first endearing trait that jumps to my mind isn’t really a quirk… It is the gentle way that Zeus plays with his pups, rolling onto his back and letting them climb all over him, tugging at his ears. He will pounce playfully toward them and then they playfully mimic the pounce back at him.
