18 things we can learn from a dog

18 Things We Can Learn From a Dog

1. Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.

2. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.

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

4. When it's in your best interest, always practice obedience.

5. Let others know when they've invaded your territory.

6. Take naps and always stretch before rising.

7. Run, romp, and play daily.

8. Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.

9. Be loyal.

10. Never pretend to be something you’re not.

11. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

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

13. Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

14. Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

15. Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

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

17. When you are happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

18. No matter how often you are criticized, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout. Run right back and make friends.

How about, "If you hump someone's leg without permission, you're liable to get swatted upside the head with a rolled up newspaper"?

Re: 18 things we can learn from a dog

I think humping a leg is pretty spiritual if you're the dog!

Hmm what I learned from my dog was if you can't eat it or shag it, wizz on it.

Re: 18 things we can learn from a dog

I'm a cat person myself (sorry people ) but I think another good thing we could learn from a dog is to live in the moment while you're having fun. Don't worry about tomorrows grocery list... run on the beach!!!
