Life Lessons From a Dog

Life lessons from 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
  • 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 in 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 simply joy a long walk
  • Be loyal
  • 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
  • Remember to live everyday as if its your last and every night as if its your first
