What We Can Learn from our Dogs

I recently had a birthday . I received a card from one of my dearest friends and in it was this little poem titled, If a dog were your teacher, you’d learn stuff like: It didn’t have an author, so I researched online and each time I found it, the poem was signed, by: Author Unknown. I hope you enjoy it . . . . . .

If a dog were your teacher, you’d learn stuff like:

*When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

*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.

*Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

*On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.

*When happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

*Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

*Eat with enthusiasm.

*Stop when you have had enough.

*Be loyal.

*Never pretend to be someone you’re not.

*When someone is having a bad day be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.

How much better we could be if we followed some of the life lessons our dogs do?
