This is our neighbor Zeke. He’s a Weimaraner, and like my former doggy brother Bentley, he’s a retired hunting dog.
Weimaraners are very smart and friendly. Zeke sometimes escapes his house and takes himself for a walk in search of cat food. Today, he stopped by our porch and continued around the corner to Squatty the Stray’s other Mom, who always leaves food out for the local stray cats.
When Mom sees Zeke taking a solo adventure, she lets his owners know that Zeke is taking himself for a walk. Today they talked a bit and Mom learned that Zeke, who is 12 years old, has lung cancer.
Mom thought this was a perfect excuse to stop at the pet store and get Zeke a little care package to enjoy. We got him some dog toys, dog treats, a little sample-size bag of cat food, and a can of cat food. We thought he shouldn’t have to escape his home in search of yummy cat food!
Something in here smells Really good. It’s actually making me a bit frisky!
We told Zeke’s owners that he’s welcome to stop by our porch any time. If he doesn’t wander by we may have to walk down to his house for a little visit. We hope he enjoys his toys & treats.
