Our puppy was spooked at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 23, in Peterson Creek Park.
Immediately after posting on Facebook’s lost pets sites, we received hundreds of shares and dozens of offers of help in the search.
We are heartbroken to report that our search for Zeus has ended. His body was found the next day on Highway 1. The children have lovingly buried him in the backyard under his tree, wrapped in his blanket.
We are desperately sad, but so thankful for the kindness from the community, including perfect strangers who gave up their time at Christmas to help us look for him. Special thanks to city bylaw officers who helped comb the surrounding areas.
We are overwhelmed by your kindness and want to send you our heartfelt thanks.
