Things we can learn from a dog
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
When it's in your best interest, always practice obedience.
Let other know when they've invaded your territory.
Run, romp and play daily.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
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 lie under a shady tree.
When you are happy, dance around and wag you entire body.
