I let Zeus out in the backyard early on Sunday morning and went put the coffee on so I might enjoy my day off. I then check Facebook and twitter to see what I may have missed from the night before. After doing so I go back to let Zeus back in. Not seeing him waiting at the door like he usually is so he might go to his perch on the back of the couch and go back to sleep. I yell for him. Nothing. I yell louder thinking he is just playing on the side of the house where I can't see him. I continue to yell, but nothing. I walk around to the side of the house barefooted and that is when I see the gate had somehow been opened. My heart skips a beat and fear starts to set in that I might never see Zeus again. I quickly run back in and put on some shoes and run out the front door yelling Zeus. The whole time panicked and thinking the worst. I run to the end of the drive way and nothing. Thinking I would go and wake up our roommate Brian so he might aid in the search of Zeus and that's when I see him sitting on the front stoop looking at me with his beautiful puppy dog face and not a care in the world It's was almost like he was saying, "What dad, I'm right here." I then open the door and let him in and he runs to the back of the couch to lay back down and that is when I put my arms around him and start bawling while he licks up my tears.
