If A Dog Were Your Teacher

Author Unknown

If a dog were your teacher, these are some of the lessons you might learn….

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 shade 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.

Lesson: Sometimes we get caught up in our daily routine and forget the simple pleasures. Take a moment to enjoy the blessings around you.
