Boot Zorin and check the /boot/grub/grub.cfg file to see if there is an entry for Puppy. If not, open a terminal and run: sudo os-prober and when it completes run: sudo update-grub and watch the progress. If it still won't boot Puppy, you might have to create an entry manually.

You can boot Zorin? You never said actually. Did you install Zorin to a different partition than Puppy?
