They say in life there are no accidents, just destiny you weren't aware of. When we went to collect our boy Zeus, there was Cleo, an unclaimed ball of black fuzz, the last of her litter, without a family to call her own. We knew instantly that we would be her family.
She was our best girl for almost 12 wonderful years. Years that saw unexpected changes, wonderful accomplishments, surprises, disappointments, joy and sadness. All of the things that make life a wonderful adventure, and all throughout that time Cleo and her brother from another mother, Zeus, were there. She was the happiest and sassiest of pups, her tail wagged constantly. She always wanted to be a part of whatever was going on. Even when she had a shoe in her mouth she wasn't supposed to have or a sock she had stealthily removed from an unattended laundry basket, or a freshly planted flower plucked from the ground, she was a source of joy and laughter for us all. She was and is the epitome of all the joy life has to offer.
We are grateful to have loved her and to have been loved by her. She was a dog like no other and she will be terribly missed.
Run free bubby girl, our beautiful, precious, good girl, Cleo. Our hearts will never be the same for they are more full for having had you in our lives
