My First Baby, Zeus

September 12, 2012 | By More

Two years ago today we had just gotten married and were back home from Charleston, SC. We were settling back in as a newly wed couple and about to take a trip to Austin, TX. We had no idea what we were about to experience. Our dog Zeus who was only 5 years old at the time passed away that evening unexpectedly. You can read the whole story here. Baby Zeus. A week later we found out that we were pregnant with Caden. Two months later my uncle passed away from a car crash. Even though it took me a while to get over and cope with the loss of Zeus. I honestly believe everything happens for a reason. I’m a true believer of that and although Zeus’s death was the hardest thing for me to ever witness I believe his death helped prepare me to get through my uncles when I was 2 months pregnant. I was there with the rest of my family when my Uncle was let off life support and if you have ever seen life leave a person or animal, you know it’s the hardest thing in the world to experience. Zeus’s death didn’t make it easy but it was almost like I was prepared in a way to see my uncle go. Not to mention I had some comfort knowing that he and my uncle would become best buds.

So, as I sit and pack up some more boxes I’m going to remember today and be thankful for my special dog and know he’ll be waiting for me at Rainbow Bridge.
