A friend sent me the following lessons that we would learn if dogs were our teachers. I thought they were very appropriate and so true!!! Sophie is the 4th lab that we have owned and each one has been such an incredible part of our family and has shown us incredible love and loyalty! So take a lesson from a dog and have a wonderful day!!
If Dogs Were Teachers You Would Learn Things 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..
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.
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.
ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!
Until Next Time....
