Anytime we're talking about pets, you'll usually see me writing about Kirby, the dog that was with me when I started ZOX.
But for this design, I wanted to throw it back a bit further to the first dog I had in my childhood childhood - our family dog, Duke. Born just a little before me, Duke was a stunning German Shepherd Husky mix who, despite looking like a majestic white wolf, was the gentlest soul you could ever meet.
Duke was my dad's dog, but I like to think of him as my very first companion. He had a profound impact on my life, teaching me invaluable lessons about loyalty, compassion, and the bond between humans and animals - something that's so powerful it's nearly impossible to put into words.
One thing I'll always remember about Duke was his unwavering loyalty. Whether I was coming home from school or returning from a long trip, Duke would always be there to greet me, his tail wagging and his eyes sparkling with joy. He was a constant reminder that, in a world full of uncertainties, there are some things you can always count on - like the unconditional love of a pet.
Duke's gentle nature was another lesson in itself. Though he had the strength and size to be intimidating, he chose instead to approach everyone - humans and animals alike - with kindness and curiosity. He was never aggressive, and his demeanor reminded me of a quote by the poet and philosopher, Rumi:
"Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder."
Man, I love that.
Duke's example taught me the power of gentleness, and the importance of treating others with kindness and understanding.
Finally, Duke taught me that life is all about cherishing the simple moments. Whether it was playing fetch in the backyard or curling up together on a cold winter's night, Duke showed me that happiness can be found in the most ordinary of circumstances, and that it's often the smallest things that make the biggest impact on our lives.
As the author, John Grogan, wrote in his book Marley & Me:
"Animals have a way of finding the people who need them, and filling an emptiness we didn't ever know we had.
Duke was one of those animals, and his presence in my life left an incredible mark on my heart. My hope for this ZOX is that it helps you celebrate the dog that left the same mark on yours.
