Update on Zeus and Apollo (pictures!)
« on: August 07, 2008, 07:30:16 am »
Hi everyone!  I know I haven't posted anything in a while, but I still love this group and read everyone's posts often.  I've learned so much from you guys and I just really appreciate what a caring group of people BPO is.

Zeus and Apollo are doing excellent!  They are about 2 years old now and have really filled out.  Both are 100 lbs of fluffy, white sweetness.  They are currently in obedience class and we hope to get them certified for therapy work this year.  We've also started taking them to an indoor/outdoor dog park in Detroit and they just love socializing with all the dogs.  We also started taking bike rides with the dogs and now they run about 3-4 miles a day.  (Boy, does that make obedience class easier when they've had a nice long run just before! :D

I'm just amazed what a difference one year has made for these guys. When we got them in June of 2007, they were skinny, slightly nervous, very hyper and destructive, and occasionally aggressive with one another.  And now they're just the most wonderful companions I could've ever wished for.  And I thank you all for the advice and encouragement this BPO group gave me.  You guys helped make them the great dogs that they are now. 

I'm adding a link to some photobucket albums, one of the dog park they go to, and one of my family walking the Detroit riverfront with the dogs.  Hope you like it!

Those are some great pics.  Your whole family looks great.
