Zeus's first swim!

"Grr... I don't like this at all"
A day after Zeus was back from LOST, we decided to bring him swimming. It was something we wanted to do for quite some time but never got around to doing because it was quite troublesome considering all the mess. We decided on the K9 pool next to Turf City instead of Sentosa's Tanjong Beach because we didn't want Zeus to drink salt water and get all sandy and dirty.

GE 2011: Zooming In On The ZDP

A candid picture of Zeus at his comfy abode and his newly introduced ZDP logo. According to the 9-month old canine, the cream colored logo was designed by renowned fashion designer, Donut Karan. 
Zeus hardly has time to chew on his rawhide these days or terrorize his reluctant long-eared companion. You might not be aware of this, but he has managed to keep his recent activities away from prying eyes of the public. Want to find out what the little mutt's been up to? Hit the jump to find out!

Zeus ran away and got lost

Back from being lost
It was a harrowing experience for mummy and daddy this morning as Zeus went missing for an hour. What happened was daddy left the house to buy breakfast and Zeus ran out of the gate. Daddy must have missed Zeus as he got into the lift. Zeus usually runs back to the house if he fails to catch any of us at the lift lobby. In this case he didn't. Mummy didn't realise he was missing until 20 minutes later. She called daddy frantically, thinking that maybe Daddy took Zeus. Daddy didn't pick up his phone so mummy went around the corridor looking for Zeus. When Daddy got back, he wasn't carrying Zeus.

Puppy mills and puppy meals

Zeus at Tanglin 56
 If you've heard about reunion event at Mutts & Mittens for the 75 mistreated dogs rescued from a puppy mill yesterday, well that's where we brought Zeus. It was raining doggedly, but we still went anyway. A crowd of exhibitors and visitors were huddled under a small tent. Some were avidly hawking their wares. In the name of charity, we bought quite a few things, including a bacon & cheese muffin for Zeus. It was nice to see so many people turn up in support of the dogs. Zeus got his feet quite wet, but he also had fun sniffing all the other dogs.

Zuchons now allowed in HDB apartments

Singapore, 13 April 2011 - The Zuchon Association of Singapore (ZAS) is pleased to announce that Zuchons are now allowed to be registered under HDB flats. Previously, Zuchons were deemed to be too mischievous and incorrigible, and thus were not under the list of allowed breeds for HDB apartments. Despite their tendency to charge into bushes and get ticks on their furry coats, ZAS has decided that such inconveniences are necessary for helping irresponsible home owners ensure the cleanliness of their home on a regular basis. Officers from SembCorp will be dispatched regularly to check on home owners with Zuchons and any neighbours within a three kilometer radius. Any offenders found with ticks in their homes will be prosecuted.

Home Alone: Day 2

Zeus did not pee the whole day again. Not a drop anywhere. While we are amazed by his ability to hold his pee for 12 hours, we don't really like it. Change of tactic, we're gonna swipe some of his pee from his morning walk, and dab it on his pee pad at home. Hopefully he will get the idea.

Home alone 2

Mummy's gone off to work again, leaving Zeus home alone for the first time in two months (again). We sectioned him in the kitchen, and left the pee pad in the toilet. He was bouncing mad when mummy came home at 7pm. Surprisingly, he didn't pee AT ALL. We home it's not because he thinks he can't pee when neither of us are at home. It's not good to hold your pee Zeus!

Angry Birds

*Update* Zeus's nose is much better now. It's healing nicely and the raw spots are nearly gone. Mummy has been reading some sites about raw feeding, and she feels very disgruntled about how some fanatics insist that feeding home cooked food or kibbles will bring a certain death to your dog. Now she knows for a fact this is not true, kibbles may be unhealthy but mummy's Golden Retriever has been fed a cheap kibble brand for 10 years and he's not dead yet. He's never been to a vet for any ailments either. In fact Namly Clinic's Dr Chan has declared him healthy and fit in the past year or so.

Zeus the Dunce

Got string stuck in my teeth, can't get it out
 Mummy and daddy went to the Biennale on Sunday and got Zeus a balloon. Zeus loves balloons, and playing with the string. It's so cute to watch him lose the string and have the balloon fly to the ceiling.

Which side up?

 Here's some Friday funnies for you, is Zeus sitting or lying down?
