If a dog would be your Teacher


You would learn things like:

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
