Lessons from a dog

If a dog was the teacher 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.
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.
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 in 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 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.




And never trust anyone until you have sniffed their butt.

I don't know about other people but my dog is rather scared of his farts! He had an operation near that area that left him somewhat gassy, he was doing these rather impressively loud farts all morning and each time he jumped up in alarm and ran off...it was hard not to laugh.

I think the best lesson from dogs is not too worry about the future, if something has happened it's happened and you just need to deal with it. When out walking our spaniel cut his paw rather badly and was bleeding quite a bit, he was split between hopping back into the water and tending to it on land. When we got near to the car his leg seemed to give in on him and he went flat down and couldn't seem to get up. As he was soaking wet I ran back to the car to grab a towel to carry him back. I turned around to see him charging up towards the car with the bleeding paw tucked up and just running along on three legs as if that was all he had. For the next few days despite having a fairly painful injury he didn't seem bothered (until he had to wear a lampshade), once it was healed he just switched back to four legs.

One of my friend's dogs in her later years was blind, deaf and the vet believed she'd had at least two strokes. However nothing seemed to stop her, she just went on and on seemingly unbothered by any of it, happily trotting along on long walks.
