Dogs Teach Us The Following Lessons

Dogs teach us the following lessons

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.

What a lovely post. Being the foodie that I am, I particularly like <br />

and like dogs, I never fail to run and greet my husband when he's back from work.<br />
<br />
Although I'm fond of dogs (particularly big dogs) circumstances are such that my humble abode is not home to any dogs yet. Will probably adopt one when my circumstance permits me.<br />

Have a lovely/productive day.

They don't have go through hell to give unconditional love, because it is within him to do so automatically.
