It's not what you have done (it's obviously NOT your fault) but how you will get it fixed  ;)
Poor Zeus  :'( he has some treatments ahead  :'(

No, the worst pet owner, would not KNOW that anything was wrong with their dog because,
a.   the animal would never go to the vet
b.   the animal would never spend enough time with the owner for them to notice anything wrong
c.   the owner would not care enough to check to see if anything was wrong

Sorry, that dubious honor is not yours and hopefully, will never belong to any of us.  You obviously love both of your kids, fur and skin.  They are both absolutely beautiful, BTW.

Awww poor Zeus.  I bet that he's achy & uncomfortable.  Does the vet have him on pain meds while he recovers?

You certainly aren't the worst owner, and remember how active your boy is. I remember having to drag him out of the water back in Sept and he wasn't happy till we let him back in the water. Things will happen, it sucks, but you certaily seam to make sure he gets the best care you can get him. Like Erin said give him a hug from our crew and hopeful Zues will be feeling better in May before we make our last beach doggy trip before the season starts.

Pretty new here to the boards but I wanted to tell you that I'm sorry about Zues and hope he makes a speedy recovery!  Dogs are pretty resiliant and can handle a lot of pain so I'm sure he's just wondering what's going on and why he can't run around right now but he'll be back to his same old self in no time.  How did he tear the ACL?  I get so worried about my ShebaLou cuz she likes to chase the kittens around the house and it just takes one slip and fall for an accident like this to happen! :'(  Good Luck Zues and the baby is adorable too!

It must have been tearing slowley over time cause the day it happened was a typical walk in the woods and then back to the house where he was lying outside. I called him in cause i was going to work and he was fine i came home later and he wouldnt walk on it at all , so i dont know if he did something while in the house but he's usually pretty docile once he's in. So who knows but surgery is done dr says it looks good so we will see .

Oh poor Zeus!!  but, you're not the worst pet owner!!!  the worst pet owners are the ones who absolutely neglect their pets and don't take care of them...  Zeus has a fantastic family... it's just "luck of the draw" that he's got some health problems.  Fumble wasn't even 2 yet and he tore both of his acl's, had numerous staph and ear infections, and then this past fall had to have a gastropexy (thank god it wasn't emergency)... but i always say "in the big word of destiny, i got fumble becuase someone up there knew that iwould take care of him come h*ll or high water"... You just keep doing what you're doing and lovin on Zeus and that makes you an A+ parent!!!

Give Zeus our love! and fumble sends drooly kisses and tells him he's been there! and it's just a matter of time before the klutzy newf gets the right foot in front of the other without injury!
