Little Zeus, King of All Dogs, friend to all, and member of the Harpham family in Saskatchewan, left behind beautiful memories of his life for his family and friends.  Mistaken sometimes for the "Kleenex Dog", and sometimes for simply a floor mop, Zeus was able to win his way into everyone's hearts.


Prior to retirement, Zeus entertained everyone with his one-act Dog Show, sitting pretty, rolling over, shaking (a paw), dancing pretty, looking for "Pooky", and countless other tricks. 


One didn't DARE use the words "walk" or "cookie" around him unless it followed up with the same.  When asked if he was feeling alright, Zeus would always repeat three times, that he was feeling "ruff!"  He could "go find" but he refused to be anyone's slave.  He would never "go fetch".  "If you want that darn stick, you'll have to tear it from me!" 


Zeus developed a taste for almost all foods, but never for jalapeno peppers or lettuce.  It was rare that he ever got to sample Real People food, since he feasted on vegetarian dry dog food for eleven years of his life.   Zeus lived to the ripe old age of thirteen-and-a-half, dying peacefully, in Dec. 2006.
