If a dog was the teacher (snagged from Kira)

If a dog was the teacher you would learn stuff 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.

* 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!

* 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.

* 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 what lies buried, dig until you find it.

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

  1. Dogs are so wise 🙂 I know they're only following their nature, but still 😉
