A Dog Lover's Motto
So live like a dog:
Live simply; Love generously; Care deeply; Speak kindly.
Remember, if a dog was the teacher 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.
Take naps, Stretch before rising and 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 loyal and 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
