I am so Thankful for our Furbaby, Zeke

By

Zeke Gaujot our chocolate labZeke, our Chocolate Lab is eleven and still acts like a puppy. When I look into Zeke's beautiful brown eyes I see so much love........ unconditional love! As I was pondering this, and thanking God for Zeke, it hit me that Dog spelled backwards is God, and we all know how much God loves each and everyone of us. So, I know if I were to look into God's eyes I would see the same love ....unconditional love!

 

Be sure and thank God for your pet(s). God gave us such beautiful animals to love and enjoy while they are here for only a short time. 

 

 

 

My oldest brother, Dan, who is now deceased, loved Zeke. When Dan visited, they were inseparable and great buddies. Below is a photo of Zeke (thinking he is a lap dog) lying on my brother's lap. It is one that I will always cherish.

 Dan and Zeke

 

  

Below is from a 2015 post about Zeke. I enjoyed reading it again and hope you will as well.  

 

My dog Zeke sleeps about 20 hours a day.

He has his food prepared for him.

His meals are provided at no cost to him.

He visits the Dr. once a year for his checkup, and

again during the year, if any medical needs arise.

For this he pays nothing, and nothing is required of him.

He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is

much larger than he needs,

but he is not required to do any upkeep.

If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up.

He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep.

He receives these accommodations absolutely free.

He is living like a king, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever.

All of his costs are picked up by others who earn a living.

I was just thinking about all this, and

suddenly it hit me like a brick..........

 

My dog is a CONGRESSMAN 

 

Our furbaby, the next Congressman

 I am so thankful for our Very Special Dog who gives us so much LOVE and JOY!

Oh my gosh, more pictures, please! I know how much you love your Zeke and can only imagine how lovable that giant lap dog is! 

I read an article the other day about the most popular dog breeds - labs are #1 and have been for decades. I know you can understand why!

Yes, I think labs are very special, Debe Maxwell, CRS.  I can talk to him and he understands what I am saying... kind of spooky.  My hubby and I just laugh. Zeke is under my desk now as I am typing. He keeps my feet warm :)

Amanda S. Davidson - Zeke was sick about 3 weeks ago we thought he was dying. He wouldn't eat and would hardly move. Took him to the Vets the next day and he was feeling better. Blood test was fine. As it was we gave him some pork.... very bad for dogs. Can cause pancreastis ... so no more human food for this big baby!

Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor® that's terrifying! I'm so glad he is ok and feeling better. Poor guy and poor you all, how stressful.

Rebecca, I was thinking you would write about Zeke!   Dan does look very comfy there with Zeke, and know you miss him so much.    What would we do without our fur babies?

Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor® your post had me laughing and crying at the same time.  My brother just passed and your picture with yours and Zeke on his lap is precious.  And the joke about the Congressman - too funny (and true!)  LOL
