Everything I Need to Know...

I learned from my dog.

~ 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 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 are scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and 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.
