Lessons To Learn From Dogs
I like lists and quotes. I saw this one and wanted to share with you. Over the weekend, my family saw the movie “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” and it was a fun movie. Our puppy, Jake, celebrated his first birthday so all of this combined made me appreciate this list even more. We all could definitely take some lessons from ever loving and loyal dogs.
If dogs were the teachers, you would learn stuff like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Let fresh air and the wind in your face be pure ecstasy.
When it’s in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory.
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 lie 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 never hold a grudge! Run right back and make friends.
Delight in the 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.
As Jake still chews everything (including furniture legs!!), I am going to remember the valuable lessons he brings to my life.
