On A Search For Zeppelin's Previous Owner

Several weeks ago, I received a lovely response to a blog post that I had written about Lily, the little Beagle that stole my heart, and her new brother Zep. We were unable to keep Lily due to the interaction between her and the cats, and to be honest with you, Brutus hated her. My cousin Janice who runs the animal rescue Paws of Jackson County, MN, was able to find a new home for Lily, and as luck would have it, it was with a dear friend of the family and her sister (also my cousin) Darla. I won't go back in to long stories of how it all went down, but let's just say that they are angels!!

About the same time that this was going on in my life, there was a family going through anguish on what to do with a young dog named Zeppelin. I don't know the full story, but they finally had to make the decision to contact small animal rescue services, and Zeppelin was going to be rehomed. Well, as luck would have it, Zeppelin was placed in the home of Roger and Darla. So now, Lily and Zeppelin live and play and love together.

I am putting this post up here because Zeppelin's new parents would like to reach out to the previous owner, and let her know that they would like to have contact with her. It can be on Facebook or email, or whatever works. They just want to be able to share pictures, and to let her know that Zep is doing OK. If you see this message, and have any interest, just leave me a note on here. It will go to my email.
Nap Time With Roger

So, here is to reconnecting with old friends. And also, here's to lots and lots of happy puppies. :)  ***and Kitties


  1. Oh my goodness what an adorable puppy. He looks like a little fox. It's so good to see happy dogs. <3

  2. Hello Sheri!

    This is Julie, Zeppelin's first owner,in Rochester. I check your blog every now and again after I found Zeppelin on it. My son and I were sitting here at the computer tonight and decided to check again. How excited we all are to see that his owners would be willing to share his new life with us. Hardly a week goes by when we don't reminisce about him-he is very, very missed, but also we are soooooo happy that he ended up in such an ideal situation! We would love to hear how he is doing and get pictures! My email is kitywompus -at- and I am on facebook as well. Thanks for your lovely blog and for giving us the peace-of-mind that we did the right thing for Zeppelin.
