Dogs are the ultimate barometer of human emotion – if you are happy, they are happy.  If you are sad, they are sad.  They hate to see us upset, and will do whatever they can to cheer us up.  Sometimes, they even bring potatoes…

“Today therapy was really hard. I was sitting here crying, and generally being miserable, when I felt a nudge at my knee. I looked down to see that Zeus, my service dog, was doing his job… and brought me a potato,” Drovie posted on tumblr.

“It is very hard to cry with the gift of a potato,” she said.

She didn’t know where the potato had come from.   But there were more to come…

Later on, she posted again:

“Remember this?  I’m having a rough time right now. Zeus has a solution.”

“That would be an empty pill bottle, the *correct* pill bottle, a bottle of embossing powder, and two, TWO potatoes.”

  1. I lost my dog, Leon, a few years ago. He was a rescue dog and he looked EXACTLY like this dog. I was never able to find out what kind of dog he was but I would like to because I want another one. If I had a gazillion dollars I would have cloned him. I’d swear he was a human in a dog’s body.
    Any help in discovering what breed this is and where I could locate one would be a prayer answered. Thanks!

  2. He’s actually correct…sometimes a nap, the right medication and good food is what it sometimes takes until you can find your way back to embossing. How wonderful !!!
