I miss Zeus. He wasn't even my dog, not really -- he was 100% my mom's: he adored her. But he sat on my lap the whole drive home from Redding when we got him as a puppy (goddamnit, I named him when he was a puppy), and he'd lie down next to me when I used to sit on the floor and read, and he was the first dog we ever had. He died far too young. I miss him.
