Things we can learn from a dog

  • Never pass up the opportunity
    to go for a joyride.
  • Allow the experience of fresh
    air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
  • When loved ones come home, always
    run to greet them
  • When it’s in your best interest,
    practice obedience
  • Let others know when they’ve
    invaded your territory.
  • Take naps and stretch before
  • Run, romp and play daily
  • Eat with gusto and enthusiasm
  • Be loyal
  • Never pretend to be something
    you’re not
  • If what you want lies buried,
    dig until you find it.
  • When someone is having a bad
    day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently
  • Thrive on attention and let
    people touch you
  • Avoid biting when a simple growl
    will do
  • On hot days, drink lots of water
    and lay under a shady tree
  • When you’re happy, dance around
    and wag your entire body
  • No matter how often you’re scolded,
    don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout…run right back and make friends
  • Bond with your pack
  • Delight in the simple joy of
    a long walk
