Hi, my name is Zeus the Wonder Dane, but you can call me Zeus. I am a Harlequin (someone told me that means Black & White) Great Dane. I am five years old, and weigh 170 lbs. I am new to the neighborhood. I was born in Texas but I moved to Missouri when I was only two months old. I helped my parents, Bill & Gay, breed and show Clydesdale horses. My parents got homesick for Texas (me too, although I don’t remember too much about the state) and moved back in January of this year. We settled into our new home on Rock Barn Drive in June and life has been wonderful ever since. As you can imagine, there have been lots of new experiences for a country dog like me moving to the city. I made the adjustment to my new life in Comanche Trace with lots of help from all of my new friends and their parents. Everyone is really, very nice and I am always glad to see them.
I love to take walks because I get to see and visit with my friends Lacy, Sheba, Bixie, and Pipp. There are others that I don’t get to see as often, like Alexander and Aggie, but I always look for them. Speaking of Aggie, she is a young Border Collie with lots of energy. She runs and jumps so fast that I get dizzy trying to keep up with her. One of her owners is Emily who always stops her bike to give me hugs and kisses; she is really sweet.
I have a special friend Maggie, a Black Labrador who likes to sit with me under the trees and stare up at the squirrels. We keep hoping one of those pesky squirrels will fall out of the tree, knock themselves silly and give us our best and only chance of catching one. Probably not going to happen, but we can hope. Did I say I love it here? I do, I am so happy and lucky I live here with all of my two and four-legged friends. They are absolutely the best! Finally, they say every good interview should include something about yourself that would be a surprise and totally unexpected. Well here goes, I am afraid of cats. My parents say I am a “’fraidy cat”. But let’s just keep that as our little secret.
Please stop by to say hello, I look forward to making new friends every day.
