Learning from dog

We are familiar with the saying that “Dogs are man’s best friend.”  I believe they are. With that, I may add that dogs are smart teachers as well.

Just a little observation of their behavior, we could learn valuable lessons about life and how we must handle some situations in our lives.

If A Dog Were Your 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 and 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 lay 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 lies buried, dig until you find it.
And MOST of all…
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently. — Author Unknown

    Have to get a dog for myself then, but my employer’s dog would be fine I guess lol!

    I don’t like dogs, but Rocky would always want to lay down beside me when i am washing dishes or cooking in the kitchen and his hair always needs to touch my feet.

    He’s so sweet.

    we had dogs before but did not attempt to have another when we saw how our daughter got devastated by the death of our pet dogs. it did not happen once but thrice.

    I can, without a shadow of a doubt say that dogs are much happier creatures than man 🙂

    Aha. Dogs are such amazing creatures. Those who believe in reincarnation say that a dog’s next life will be human. Which assumes that man is a higher level of creation than man. Which i sometimes tend to doubt. 🙂

    How true that a dog never pretends to be something he’s not.

    I have given my heart to a dog to tear. It’s been torn many times that way but it has been worth it.
