Zeus Mongrel appointed new Editor-in-Chief

Dear readers,

With effect from today - Mr Zeus Mongrel has been appointed the new Editor-in-Chief of Noah's Ark CARES' blog. We are sad to inform you Ms Jojo Schnauzer crossed the rainbow bridge 2 weeks ago. Her tribute can be found here: http://noahsarkcares.blogspot.com/2009/02/tribute-to-ms-jojo-schnauzer.html . A new Editor then had to be quickly found in order to keep our blog going. After a few names were thrown around, we are glad to announce that Mr Zeus Mongrel has emerged as the top-dog.

Please do continue to read on for some background information on Zeus Mongrel for you to get to know him better!

Name: Zeus
Breed: Mongrel
Age: 8 yrs old

There can only be one Zeus. Mongrels are unique, intelligent and special in their own ways. Zeus was resuced in 2001 when he was just a mere puppy. His rescuer was driving along the AYE expressway when she spotted him running along the road shoulder! He was just 3 months of age.

If he was not rescued, perhaps he would not be even alive today. That fateful day, his rescuer stopped her car, got down and opened the car door. All this on the road shoulder of the expressway! As if on cue, little Zeus hopped into the car and has not looked back since. He was first rehomed to a factory in Tuas and stayed there for a few years.

At the factory, he was well loved by the workers. They even dubbed him "Mr President"! Zeus was one very lucky employee at the factory who got to sleep on the job. On top of that, he was allowed to sleep in the office with air condition during the day. Sadly after a few years, the factory could no longer keep him. Thankfully, Zeus managed to find himself a forever home.

Sadly, it was discovered that someone had broken his tail bone during his stay at the factory there. Whether it was on purpose or as punishment, it would never be known. As a result, Zeus is unable to wag his tail at all. Despite not having a tail, you can easily tell when Zeus is happy by looking at the wide grin on his face! :D

Since finding his forever home, Zeus visits schools during Noah's Ark road shows and demonstrates how clever and obedient a mongrel can be. He is well-liked by everyone and especially good with younger kids. Moreover, he has helped foster dogs and earned the title of being Papa Zeus, the respected elder in the home. Zeus has also fostered puppies like Prince, and Prince absolutely loves him to bits, licking Zeus' face whenever they meet.

Mr Zeus Mongrel knows he has big shoes to fill and that he will do the best he can in continuing to bring you animal stories and Noah's Ark news!

We hope that you'll be giving him your fullest support during his time as Editor. Thank you!
