I met Phil Knight last week. He is the creator/owner of Nike, in case you didn’t know.

Hooper is my dog. He is a 9 month old chocolate Labradoodle. Before him I had never had a real pet. I know many people often look through the eyes of a child to see the playful and exciting world, I happen to look through Hooper’s.
