Zen, full name Heisenberg is 6 years old today as of 2 am.
He's a black Boxer mix with some white points.
Naming him after the physicist was perhaps a mistake. Just a bit too curious and intelligent and forever getting in trouble. This is, after all, the Uncertainty Principle dog.
Zen the Destoyer is another epithet. Tables, couches, you name it, he ate it.
We found Zen on Craigslist, where the human (US Army) mother of his mom was about to be shipped overseas to Iraq, and she needed to get rid of the puppies fast.
As the litter's runt, we were afraid he'd be a potential "bait dog" for the local creeps who fight dogs. Despite his fierce look, his demeanor is super gentle and the only time he's willing to fight is when it's about my safety. Runt or not, I had innumerable offers to sell him for breeding until I got him neutered.
How could anyone imagine selling a member of their family? It's beyond me!
I don't know how to post pics on this forum. Tell me how and I'll happily post one of my gorgeous pup.
Who's your special critter, and does a day mark something special in your relationship together?
Happy Birthday Zen, my beloved familiar and companion.
