Lessons We Can Learn from Dogs

Dogs know how to live and love. We can learn from them…

• Never pass the opportunity to go for a joy ride.

• Relish in the simple joy of fresh air and wind in your face.

• Take naps.

• Stretch before rising.

• Run, romp and play daily.

• Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.

• Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

• Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

• On warm days, lie on your back in the grass. On hot days, drink lots of water and find shade.   

• When you’re happy, dance around, and wag your entire body.

• Take long walks and stop to smell the roses (and anything else that interests you) along the way.

• Be loyal.

• Never pretend to be something you’re not.

• If what you want is buried, keep digging until you find it.

• No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout. Run right back in there and try it again.

• When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

• Look at the people you love like they’re the best thing since peanut butter.
