How to be Like My Dog

My dog is a great role model for me. He is the best person I know and the best person I can imagine anyone being. Here are some  things he has taught me about how best to go through life:

  • Don’t waste time being angry  

  • Always express the joy of being near the people you love
  • Be content in the silence among friends
  • Accept every individual of every species for who they are
  • My love must be unconditional
  • Pay very close attention to other peoples’ feelings, wants and needs as expressed through sound and body language
  • Enjoy treats
  • Do not judge smells as bad; think of them as important sources of information
  • Don’t complain
  • Don’t obsess over injuries – keep enjoying life
  • Live in the moment
  • Accept affection from anyone
  • Give affection to anyone who accepts it
  • Love to go on long walks, especially through the woods
