The Zeus is Loose!

We got a wonderful update on FBRN grad Zeus recently. Here's the note from his new mom and some pics of Zeus and sister Ridglea:

"The yellow dumbbell toy in the first two pictures is one of his favorite toys.

We have discovered that he is crazy about balls...any size. The ones too big to fit in his mouth he rolls around the room between his feet like he's playing soccer. He woofs and makes his happy bark the whole time he "plays soccer".

I got a kick out of the fourth picture. I couldn't believe it when both Ridglea and Zeus climbed up in my lap and fell asleep...

Ridglea just barely fits so Zeus was just about over my knees! I guess I won't get cold this winter.

Take a close look and you will see Ridglea's black and white hind leg sticking out from under Zeus as if it were his leg! Also in that picture it looks like Zeus has a white tail (Ridglea's again). Zeus still weighs only 22 to 23 pounds but he looks quite large in the third and fourth pictures. I think it's because he's laying on top of Ridglea so her mass seems to belong to him."

Friends, what we have here is a completely successful and gratifying Frenchie rehoming story. Zeus is clearly happy as a quahog and he's getting all the lap time--if not all the lap room--a young frog could ask for. We simply love it when a plan comes together.

Smug as can be,
The Frog Princess
