Thoughts-What A Dog Teaches

A dog teaches us a lot of things, but we never seem to take notice. These are some of the lessons you might learn…
· When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

· 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 it’s in your best interest, practice obedience.

· Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.

· Take naps and stretch before rising.

· Run romp and play daily.

· Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

· Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do.

· On warm days stop to lie on your back on the grass. 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.

· Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

· Eat with gusto and enthusiasm, stop when you have had enough.

· 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.
