Learning from Dogs like Me

Kat read something online today that we both thought was good enough to share. I need to learn a lot of things from Kat and other upright folks. But there are lots of things Kat and other people can learn from dogs like me!

Here are just a few:

• When your 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.

• Take naps.

• 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.

• Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

• Be faithful.

• 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.

So Kat is teaching me a lot of things and helping me learn. But I’m helping her learn lots, too!!! We all have lots to learn and can ALL grow!
