Things We Can Learn From Our Dogs

Things We Can Learn From Our Dogs

We fill our days meeting work deadlines, maneuvering in traffic, and grocery shopping. What are priorities among canines?

This is a real gem. Pass it along to your dog-loving friends!

Run, romp, and play daily.

If you want what lies buried, dig until you find it.

When youíre happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

When itís in your best interest, practice obedience.

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

Take naps and stretch before rising.

I received this years ago as an email and here is the complete version...

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.

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

Take naps often and stretch before rising.

Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

Thrive on attention, and let people touch you.

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
