Mindful : August 2019
PHOTOGRAPHBYBETHANYCUBINO,CHASINGSKIESPHOTOGRAPHY Missing Is the Hardest Part When my beloved Max died, Zoe did not celebrate with her prancing happy dance. In fact, she seemed bereft. With the entire house now open to her (no more gates), she hardly knew what to do with her freedom. She’d approach Max’s leash, still hanging at the back door, as if it were an apparition. It smells like Max, so why is Max not here? I imagined her wondering. As I watched her approach, retreat, and sniff, I was certain she was processing her own loss, and I actually felt genuine sympathy for her. In the months that followed, I found my anger with her dissolving into what I imag- ined was our shared grief at losing Max. Was it possible I was beginning to accept Zoe for who she was? Yes, I’d started to realize that Zoe, like her “masters,” was a product of nature and nurture, a prisoner of both her gene pool and her environment. Dog experts have consistently noted the breed’s aggression, posses- siveness, and jealousy, as well as its “small dog/big attitude” traits. Yes and yes. The more I understood her hard wiring, the more I was able to forgive her for behav- iors she could not control. → Author Steven Petrow savors a peaceful moment with his 16-year- old canine, Zoe.
